I then sprayed a small amount of windex on the cleaning rag and tried to remove the blueish blotches on my screen. It only seemed to streak the blotch in a larger area. (Windex was stupid.) I've read on another thread that the blueish blotches are just oils.
I then applied water to the rag and cleaned the entire screen. I was able to buff out the streaks.
However, I can't tell if my mind is playing tricks but the picture quality doesn't seem the same.
The clarity isn't there anymore. Colors seem a little blown out. The darks just aren't as dark now. I'm not sure if this is because it's the first time I've cleaned the screen this much.
I'd be surprised if one cleaning could ruin a tv but I guess it could happen.
Am I crazy or did this dramatically affect the PQ?
It may be that I am looking for flaws (because the streaks set off worse case scenarios in my head) but the Kuro doesn't seem to have the same pop and wow factor.
I'm cool with the the straight truth because I've had two great years with the TV.
Is it a lost cause or is there anything I can do to save the TV?
Your input would be greatly appreciated.
