I just got a 34" Sony HDTV CRT that has a scratch in the front viewing glass (well, not so much a scratch, but a tiny tiny piece of the tv glass was chipped or gouged out accidentally). It's ok (I got it used and for free), but was wondering if there was some sort of epoxy for glass that might clear and/or cover it up.

Only thing I could think of would be some sort of windshield chip/crack repair type stuff.

I have a similar problem. It is not so much that the glass is scratched but a layer of film over the top of the glass has been subtly dislodged and this is visible when bright light shines on it

you may want to try a microfiber cloth with some cerium oxide slurry; there is a chance that it will work depending on how deep the scratch is.

if it's a clean gouge, chances of a clean repair good. Auto Store: windshield repair kit. Read the instructions carefully and follow.
