Can Dalite HP 2.8 scratch be "fixed"?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
So, since I am a total idiot, I have managed to scratch the Dalite screen I want to sell. I got it off the wall and was inspecting it closely to find any imperfections to note in an ad and get pictures of, and I found a very tiny brownish dot.. about the size of a pinhead I guess. Well i tried to see if it would scratch off, and I guess I suceeded in scratching off the dot, and the gain of the screen in that spot. So now when I shine a flashlight on it that little spot looks dark. Is there anyway to repair this? Touchup paint?

Once you scratch off the coating, I don't think there is anything that you can do. I will check with Da-Lite to confirm.

Can't be repaired,

Thanks. Yean I got Dalite on the phone just now and they said there is really nothing I can do. Oh well.

How big/small is the affected area? And just out of curiosity, whereabouts are you located? I'm looking to upgrade from my 16:9 92" Da-Lite Model B High Power 2.8.

Here is a shot with a LED flashlight on it to make it as big of a difference as possible. I am in Nashville.

Yeah that sucks! I wonder how these spots even got there... its not a rollup screen where a bug could get squished... who knows....

Did he say his screen wasn't a rollup? My 2.8 High Power is.

I feel your pain. I scratched my screen moving it from one room to another and then on top of it I tried to "lightly" wipe off a smudge I saw and ultimately it all showed when the projector light hit it so I cut my 120" screen down to 100" as a temporary fix until I can get a new screen. Then I find out the 2.8 is no longer available..kinda out of the frying pan into the fire..so I'll probably go 2.4 here real soon.

That's the downside to the High Power, you get a scratch on it and it stands out like dogs balls and there is really nothing you can do about it. I have 4 scratches down the right side near the framing and I have no idea how they got there. The first one appeared shortly after I installed it and I just assumed that I did it during the install but never noticed immediately but 3 more scratches have turned up recently for no apparent reason. I do have a few mice in the house but I find it hard to believe they're responsible because they're so small. Maybe a rat I don't know about, who knows. Luckily the scratches are near the framing so it don't notice them too much during a movie but if I get one in the middle I won't be happy.
