I have no idea if this is a good idea or not.....do not try this per my suggestion....its is only a thought...

They sell a product called scratchX for a car's paint. What it does it go on like a polish, but get into the tiny scratches in a paint coat....when you wipe it off, it forms a layer of clear coating that reflects the paint color surrounding the area of the scratch, making it almost impossible to see the scratch at all. It is non abrasive I believe and have used it for years with great results....on our cars though....but it seems like it would work with plastic and similar surfaces.

Anyone's thoughts on this and this problem on the tv frame?

again just a suggestion that is a thought....never tried it...please don't unless you want to....I have no idea if it is a good idea or not.

There are many brands of plastic cleaner/polish which can be found at you local auto parts store. I used some Meguiar's PlastX cleaner and polish to remove oxidation from my brake light covers. It removed the oxidation and even some fine scratches. I'm not sure how it will work on colored plastic so make sure to test it on a inconspicuous spot first.

I've used some various products for acrylic and polycarbonate to take minor scratches and swirl marks out of motorcycle windshields, headlights, cell phone, and iPod cases and screens. Just google "plastic scratch remover".

Some I've used are:

RadTech - Ice Cream
DLO - iPod kit
Janvil - Plastic Restore (Works pretty good on clear and colored plastics)
Novus - 1, 2 & 3

Not recommending one over the other, just that all have done what I've needed and were a relatively cheap and quick solution to revitalize on items I used on.

Good Luck

Theres no way, use the included CLOTH(what i use) but it still makes scratches on the back , so i will clean it less often now.

thanks.

I'd began to wonder since I noticed this reported more than once.

Perhaps a coat of polish or wax on day 1 would do some good in this regard.
