Default Light Scratch Removal Success with Magic Eraser

Replaced backlights on a 43UJ6300 but there was a scratch near the middle of the screen which I didn't notice with the backlights blue. I discounted the price but still having trouble selling it. I thought of using a magic eraser to buff it out but worried it could cause more damage. Found a youtube video showing success with this technique so tried it. Used it dry and sanded in the direction of the scratch and it worked! Relisting the TV for full price!

That is not sold here but i guess it's the usual abrasion cream.. the screen has a polarizer film that must not be thinned, maybe if the scratch is light maybe one can try..

I never use magic eraser dry. As in auto-body prep work, always wet-sand with very very fine sand papers before painting.

Same concept applies here. Use a small bit of water. Not dripping wet. Squeeze wet magic eraser in a tower before use.

Less friction, and you will be happy with result.

I use small circular motions to blend to surrounding area.

Sanding in direction of scratch promotes making the existing scratch deeper. Try using circular motion.

More or less time will depend on depth of scratch/gouge.

Best of luck

No point posting since the panel looks perfect. Can't really tell where the scratch was.

If you can't find them in Europe, pretty sure you can order from Aliexpress under melamine foam or sponge. I use them to clean soap scum from glass shower doors. They are also popular for cleaning sneakers and have lots of uses. Just checked Aliexpress and $4 for 20 pieces.

oh thanks..
how about reflection? a screen with tactile scratch is one with plastic polarizer instead of painted polarizer, the first is matte surface, does the product gives a glossier aspect? The painted polarizer is glossy for information..
was it a light or deep scratch?

Any screen scratches I tend to use tcut which is a car paint cleaner. I used it for cleaning the headlights on the glass of the car which did a great job for a car MOT the garage mechanic was duly impressed.
So with that in mind I used on a few 17inch monitors with a few scratches and abrasions from a corporate client which did the trick. The only minor issue is the screen looks slightly glossy where it has been used. So with any TV screens that are scratched it gets the tcut treatment!
