How to remove scratches from your Smart TV

If the scratch is very large and your TV is still under warranty, I recommend you change it. Trying to solve this problem can make things worse, as the damage will no longer be covered if you ruin it.

If instead, you are sure of what you do you can use a repair kit. They are available in specialty stores and supermarkets. This is the safest method. Or use Vaseline, just dip a cotton disk and spread it on the scratch.

You can also use hairspray. Buy the transparent lacquer and spray it directly on the scratch. Leave to dry.


These techniques work on all types of screens. Read the manual carefully, there may be instructions on how to clean the TV. You can also use the wipes for screens that are sold in specialty stores.

Do not press too much on the screen if you have a CRT because the screen is very thin. Be careful when using the mixture of water and vinegar, use it carefully, do not spray it so as not to cause a short circuit.
