    How to remove scratches from your Smart TV

    If the scratch is very large and your TV is still under warranty, I recommend that you replace it. Trying to fix this can make things worse, as the damage will no longer be covered under warranty if you mess it up.



    If you are sure of what you are doing, you can use a repair kit. They are available in specialty stores and supermarkets. This is the safest method. Or use petroleum jelly, just dip a cotton disc and spread it over the scratch.



    You can also use hair spray. Purchase clear lacquer and spray it directly on the scratch. Let it dry.

    Conclusion

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


    Don't press too hard 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.
