Question How to deal with scratches on TV?


Standard Member
So someone flew a toy drone into our TV, I didn't realise it was an issue at first but now when there is a white background you can really see some red marks on the screen.

What can I do to get rid of them?

Thank you

What is screen made of?

Hard Glass - use spectacle cleaning fluid or other solvent (lighter fluid) to remove what appears to be paint/plastic to me (but I'm looking at a photo).

Other materials may need more careful consideration as you could damage that with the wrong liquids. The TV maker's helplines could perhaps advise what could be used and must be avoided?

I operate a no fly zone around my TV.

Unfortunately I suspect you'll do more harm than good if you try to remove the scratches. What model of TV is it? The surface it has will depend on what your options are, if any.

I have a Sony KD65S8505C.

The screen feels very plastic, I can't actually feel any scratches on the surface so maybe it's just lightly on the surface?
