How do I remove a scratch someone put into the rim of a TV?

Ok so my friend has a homestay buisness going on at her home, today she noticed one of the people that stayed over carved their name in the TV in the guest room, how can you get this out? It looks very ugly and we are shocked that someone would do this staying as a guest.

If they are deep, noting will get them out. You could try a liquid rubbing compound for cars. I use a product by Kit called Scratch-Out that works great on light paint scratches. Protect the screen and put some on a cloth and start rubbing in circular motion. If you have a variable low speed buffer you could try that, but be super careful of the screen.

If you feel like bold action, tape the screen, sand the bezel, and hit it with Krylon Fusion for plastic, or research some other paint or coating for plastic.

FYI, you can get sandpaper to 10k grit now. Start with 150 or so and work your way on up the ladder.

Track the visitors down and make them pay. If they won't pay carve your initials in something of theirs, like their forehead...

That sucks, sadly it is very difficult to re-finish plastic...

Best course of action would be to invoice the guest for the replacement cost....
