Dog scratched my VT30!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Yesterday I noticed a nice new feature on the front of my 65VT30. The dog has been known to watch it and at times get right up to the TV, but have never seen it go any further. Well apparently that has changed. There are a series of light, paw-width descending scratches that go to a nice vertical gouge about 6 inches long. At first when I saw it from across the room I thought it was a crack, but no.

Is there anything I can do short of replacement? It looks fine when turned on, can't really tell. How much is it worth now?

Sorry but there is nothing you can do to repair or minimize the scratch, but that outer layer of glass should be replaceable separately which would be cheaper than buying a new TV.

I thought w/ the vt30 the two layers of glass are adhered together w/ the 1 sheet glass design?

I may be wrong, but if im not, they would have to do a whole panel replacement in which ur better off investing in at least the ST50 for similar performance as the vt30.

Step 1: Buy a new TV.
Step 2: Become a cat owner.

If you cannot see it while watching TV, I would just let it be.

Imo, cats as a whole are less trouble, but I can't deny the fact my cat likes to get near my plasma screen especially if I have "Planet Earth" playing.

Cats and plasmas don't match either.

Oops, another example.
