Sorry, no idea. I would never own a tv that cost more than like two HUNDRED dollars lol my kids would totally scratch it.

I googled this, not sure if it works but you can try

The secret to removing light scratches from your Flat Screen TV is to use the proper tools. Here is the list of tools to gather:

1.) Isopropyl Alcohol – Available from grocery stores, drug stores, hardware stores

2.) Micro Fiber Cleaning Cloth – Available from sunglass stores, Wal-Mart, Target

3.) Distilled Water – Available at grocery stores, Wal-Mart, drug stores

Never, ever use Windex, glass cleaner, or other window cleaning solutions on your Flat Screen TV. Additionally, never use paper towels on your Flat Screen TV, as this is the quickest way to permanently damage your screen with thousands of little scratches.

Firstly, mix a 50/50 solution (half Isopropyl Alcohol and half distilled water) in a liquid safe container. Isopropyl Alcohol is usually listed at 90% pure, so mixing a 50/50 solution results in a cleaning solution that is nearly perfect for our needs.

Secondly, dip your Micro Fiber cloth into the solution and begin to gently rub the scratch on the TV in a circular motion. It is important not to rub too hard, as friction from the Micro Fiber cloth can make the scratch worse. Continue to use a circular motion while keeping the Micro Fiber cloth damp with your Isopropyl Alcohol and distilled water solution.

Finally, the scratch should begin to disappear as the Isopropyl Alcohol in your cleaning solution evaporates. If the scratch does not begin to disappear or becomes worse – STOP! You may have a scratch that needs a more thorough fix. Our next article will address such a situation! Remember, the easiest way to remove scratches from your Flat Screen and LCD TV is to prevent them in the first place. Take a look a Micro Fiber Dust cover from OriginalDustCover.com for the best protection of your TV.

 Not sure where the scratches are on the TV but depending where they are , try a little Toothpaste, yes I said Toothpaste might sound silly or stupid but I have used it before to get scratches off of stuff, of course it does all dpends on where and how bad the scratches are. Hope it all works out for ya!

if its on the case of it, get old english scratch cover, try to match the colors as close as you can get it. this polish is really good.

tell him BEFORE he comes home so he can calm down , remind him that children are more valuable then televisions which can be replaced. Yes it sucks that the not yet paid for TV has a scratch but these things happen when you have kids and let's keep these things in perspective .

OMG do not use toothpaste!!! i promise you will get him more pissed by doing that!  if anything google HOW to get scratches out of flatscreens OR call the manufacturer and ask them. don't just put anything on it you hear from this website.  the screens are different and only certain types of solutions can be used to clean them or you will make more damage
