Well, I have a Samsung Tantus 27" HDTV. I got a deep 2 inch scratch on it while moving. I was told by the place I bought it from that I could remove it with rubbing compound......... BIG mistake. I didn't know then that the screen has a tint on it. I now have a two inch by four inch patch that has no tint. It is brighter than the rest of the screen by a little bit. So, I could have lived with the scratch.. but now the screen looks even worse. My question would be if it would be possible to re-tint the screen somehow with some sort of coating. I called glass tinting places and theoretically they could do it, but the tinting process takes water (TV's and water don't mix). If it's not possible to re-tint it, theoretically I could un-tint the whole screen (although it would take hours and be hard to get it all one brightness), but this might cause more harm than good... I can also replace the whole tube, but according to the TV repair places the tube is like $570 not counting labor. The TV was like $1,200 or so when I bought it. Any suggestions? I'm crying for my poor TV right now.
