    Hi,
    I've had a LCD LG TV for around 6 years now and since recently (4 months or so) there are marks showing up rapidely between the glass and the screen. I have no idea what it is (see image). It's gradually expanding all over the screen. I didn't use any water or other products to clean it. I usely use a microfibre cloth. Anyone have an idea what it could be and if it is possible to remove the front panel and clean it? I know the TV is reaching it's life expectancy but the screen itself still functions well. It would be a waste to throw it away without trying to fix it.

    Thanks in advance

    That certainly looks like mould.

    Is it on the inside of the screen?

    It's between the front glass panel and the screen itself. No idea how it got there. Humidity could be an issue but I'm not sure. I wouldn't know where the humidity comes from. We do have a lot of plants in the house but I don't know if this makes a difference.

    Probably . no windows open . having heating on causes condensation . A de humidifier would help to take moisture out of the room .. you would be surprised on how much . If it is not a room you sleep in .. close the door at night and switch a dehumidifier on all night , empty the water and do this for 4 days .. it will draw water out of the walls etc

    Thanks for the comment. The TV is right next to a window that we open quite regularly but I will take your comment into account. I imagine the TV can't be saved but I just want to avoid this with the next.

    yep .. looks like heat and cold ... You really need to move it away from windows as it goes from one extreme to another . If you have got mould in that TV , just think what else in in the room . Getting a dehumidifier would help your home in every room . Must be spores floating everywhere
