Just wanted to chime in with my own experience using this method. Just bought the Sony KDL55W800B Smart LED TV, and noticed some annoying flashlighting/clouding right away.
I took a before and after picture, and I think the results speak for themselves.
And yeah,I realize the exposure of the two shots are different, but it really did work, notice the huge cloud going all the way across to the middle of the screen in the before shot? That is completely gone now, and only a small subtle bit of clouding remains in the two left side corners.
All i did was very gently rub the screen and slightly tap out the clouding. Thanks for the suggestion!
