Anti Glare On Samsung Q9FN TV Issue

[QUOTE = "MWC97, gönderi: 28630271, üye: 880538"]
İmzalı bir dilekçeyi bir araya getirmek ve bunu, Samsung'un ilk savunma duvarı yani müşteri hizmetleri asistanı tarafından geri döndürülmeyen bir e-postaya dönüştürmek konusunda herkesin düşüncesi nedir? Samsung'un web sitesindeki ekranı temizlemeyle ilgili talimatlara uymak, daha sonra sorumluluk almadıkları görünüşte geri dönüşü olmayan kozmetik hasarlarla sunulmak, kesinlikle bir tür tüketici yasasına aykırıdır.

2019'un sonunda Q80'ime olduğu gibi herkesin hayal kırıklığını paylaşıyorum ve bir çözümün ortaya çıkması umuduyla bu yazıyı aylık olarak takip ediyorum ...

OP'ler hala bu konuyu izliyorsa ve o zamandan beri deneyimleyenler, konuyla ilgili 'kitlesel' bir isyan hakkındaki bakış açınızı duymak iyi olacaktır. Belki de arzulu bir düşüncedir ...

What is everyone’s thoughts on getting a signed petition together and collate it into an email that isn’t simply bounced back by Samsung’s first wall of defence I.e. customer service assistant? To follow instructions on Samsung’s website on cleaning the screen to then be presented with seemingly irreversible cosmetic damage that they then don’t take responsibility for is surely against some form of consumer law.

I share everyone’s frustration as it happened to my Q80 at the back end of 2019 and have been following this post monthly in the hope that a solution appears...

If OPs are still watching this thread and those who have experienced since it would be good to hear your standpoint on a ‘mass’ revolt on the issue. Maybe it’s wishful thinking...

I wouldn't mind signing but nothing will be done IMO. Not enough of us to make any impact.

There was a partition going to give the Q9FN HDMI 2.1 support but that didnt get anywhere either.

Is there anything we can do on samsung community forum? Probably we are from different countries but we could start doing some mess in uk forum for the beginning.

:thumbsup::thumbsup: HI guys! I literally had to register on here to write this post after trailing the internet for SOME hope that we could 'fix' a mishap with my Husband and Mr Sheen on our reasonably new Samsung TV after he was convinced he had taken the anti glare off! :( - SAMSUNG Q90R

Not going to lie, he was distraught after some research realising his silly mistake - was thinking that we would have to just take it all off as it was quite a considerable amount of the screen which seemed shiny then another vast amount with the blue hue, as funding another £1500 TV wasn't really feasible - so we would just have to live with a possible glare...HOWEVER

I just couldn't get my head around how it could be so bloody easy to damage a TV in that price bracket?! AND how Samsung could get away with not taking any responsibility!!?

After reading a few peoples suggestions the use of a small amount of Isopropanol Alcohol 99.9%, I could completely see the logic (as I use it a lot generally for grease/stubborn marks!) But can completely understand that it goes against all advice from Samsung and too seemed it should be too abrasive for the anti glare coating... BUT IT WOOOOOOOORRKKKKED!!! :clap::clap::clap:

This Morning we bit the bullet and went for it (eeek!) as I said worst case scenario we would just take it all off so that at least it was uniform lol!
So with a minimal dab of Isopropanol Alcohol 99.9% and a lens cloth (adding a small amount where needed) he was able to gently clean the whole screen and get rid of all smears!! HOOORAHHH! (not going to lie, think I was holding my breath for most of it - but found a bit of comfort I could blame him worse case scenario lol)

I seems, the shiny parts were likely to be from the mr sheen residue rather than the anti glare removal - THANK GOODNESS!! Not sure if its the case for all the screens mentioned - but as I said...why would Samsung create a screen that fragile in this day and age??? ALSO why they haven't actively been trying to help disgruntled customers as this surely won't help with review and future sale of their products?!

I can't say for certain, but certainly looks like there is some sort of layer over the Moth Screen - and will be contacting Samsung to see if this is true - and if so why this isn't made clear? ALSO if there is any type of grease on a screen a dry cloth or a damp cloth will only smear - unless with a bit of force which again, they don't suggest?! :devil:

I will shut up for now, BUT wanted to share some hope!! As I can't believe how hard it was to find any decent advice!? But thank gord for this forum and would obviously test a small area first (obvs!) :lesson:

I'm happy you were able to clean it without issue.
With pure isopropyl alchool i was able to remove only a small blue smudge lefr by a dry fingerprint, with others blu stains it did nothing, tried with a bit of force too.
I really think we should involve many forum users and do something with Samsung.

Just want to let everyone know that I recently purchased a Q80T (2020 model) and had some smudges. I tried a damp cloth (not realizing I wasn’t supposed to) and made it all worse, turning blue as described in this thread. I just tried 91% alcohol with a microfiber and it went away.

I did have to press down a bit and work the stains. It was still a very delicate balance on pressure. Circular motions and take your time.

Which alcohol would exactly be? Is methylated spirit any good? Thanks

They are used similar ways generally - but Methylated spirit is ethanol based with added properties to it and could leave a residue. Isopropanol Alcohol (IPA) is pure and will evaporate completely :D

Greetings all...

I've been lurking around in the shadows, in this forum for over a year on this topic, as this appears to be the only spot on the internet with a real discussion on the Anti-Reflective Coating issues on Samsung QLED Series 4k TV/Monitor/Displays...

I have a 2018 (bought at EOY as the 19's were coming out) Samsung Series 7 55" QLED TV - QN55Q7FNAFXZA - (which I love 98% of the time) - it was a dream purchase for me at the time, as I had always lusted over the picture quality when i passed it in the store (only 2nd to LG's OLED Displays, IMHO).

Within a month of ownership, i started running into issues with what I can only describe as the "Oil" or "Antifreeze" like purple/blue-ish haze that occurs when attempting to clean the screen.

From day one, I only used "monitor" specific cleaners, with no alcohol, no ethanol, no ammonia - and ONLY with premium micro-fiber towels made for glass (both the type with raised hexagonal patterns and completely smooth, tight weave smooth cloths. No matter what i did I could NOT stop the glazing affect, which I later learned from samsung was "damage to the anti-reflective coating"...

I never received any verifications from Samsung on which display type or coating that was used - they offered me ZERO guidance what-so-ever on how to deal with it...

I saw multiple comments about the use of "Camera Lens Cleaners" and "Isopropyl Alcohol" - but was terrified of them both (knowing what they do to premium tint in cars)...

Finally, like someone else mentioned, my canine friend, sneezed on my TV screen - soon as I touched it to clean it - again it got worse...

I had some Ethanol based lens-cleaner wipes - so i decided to try those - and the results looked promising, however just not big enough wipes and i guess they've been sitting in a box for too long and despite being individually wrapped - they weren't very moist...

So, working for an antenna, filter, amplifier and radio manufacturer, i happened to have some PURE, electronic grade Isopropyl alcohol in the house (I have for cleaning thermal paste and compounds from chipset coolers) - so - based on a few people suggesting this might be safe - i gave it a shot...

How I did this - first, i transferred some in to a sprayer that sprays as a very fine mist - i sprayed it on to some premium, hi-absorbency paper-towel, which i had two full sheets folded over in quarters. I sprayed it LIGHTLY to wet the surface of the towels - than folded it over on itself to spread it out more, opened it back up and started...

I QUICKLY wiped left to right (after testing an inconspicuous spot at the top left of the screen) and i couldn't believe how easily it glided across the screen removing the "oil-slick" looking affect...

I continued to do the entire display - wiping left to right and left again at a quick pace with medium to light pressure... It eventually became smooth and virtually all the streaks were gone as was the oil-affect... (prior, the paper towel and even the premium cloths would "drag" on the screen)

This is the cleanest my screen has looked in more than 18mo... OMG, how happy I am about this - to be honest i had been eying an oled recently because i was soo sick of the appearance of my QLED - now i feel like i finally have a solution, that when used conservatively, actually works...

Wish I took a "before" photo - but here's an "after photo" of what it looks like now....

I can assure you that it looked like i had splashed engine coolant all over my display, prior to the outcome of this experiment...

As always folks, your mileage may vary - DO NOT use "rubbing alcohol" - it must be 99% or 100% ISOPROPYL Alcohol... Nothing else... DO NOT APPLY DIRECT TO SURFACE OF DISPLAY (in quantity, Iso will dry out and destroy the finish completely if over applied) - AGAIN - proceed at your own perrill but to me the risk was worth the reward...

THIS ONLY APPLIES TO THIS DISPLAY - Samsung has NUMEROUS version and finishes - what worked on this Display could destroy yours...

Compare the version information i provided at the top, to your own, PRIOR to trying this - far as I know (but cannot guarantee) all Series 7/8/9 QLED Samsungs made from 2018 - 2020 use this same stupid coating and have the same issues... Can't speak for any other series or years...

Good Luck Folks!!!

Happy New Years (and good riddance of 2020)

~Chris (aka 2loki4u)
