Exclamation LCD TV Spray Adhesive on screen!

Hello
I've only gone and got 3m high tack spray adhesive on my lcd tv screen. I just don't know what to do, i doubt i'll be able to use 3m adhesive remover on it as it'll probably eat through the screen. What is my best plan of acion, attempting to clean it off the screen using some sort of chemical?
It's truely awful, fortunately it's not efecting my viewing that much as it's transparent, the area i did the most cleaning (scrubbing) on is definately not as bad as the untouched areas however the glue is still there.
I need help and I need it fast! Any ideas as to what to do? Anybody got any experience with a similar kind of problem?
Thanks for your time
Jim

I would contact 3M support through their online site they may have a recommendation for you but don't hesitate as this adhesive may have a caustic base..Good Luck

I've emailed 3m. I'm also planning on contacting Sony. I alredy looked int screen repalcement, goig to be between 250 aqnd 450, the tv is only worh 350 so is there much point. If i have to then it should be covered under accidental damage on household insurance. If only i knew whether or not we have accidental damage cover on our contents insurance. How can i ask my parents without arrousing suspicion, the problem is that it was quite a recent present from them that i've just carelessly destroyed and i don't want to worry them with it at the moment.
This is very stressful!

Default Deductible?

Most homeowners/rental insurance has a deductible. Most common is $500, some are $250. Either way, your somewhat screwed there, as well.

Try whatever 3M suggests. Other methods may just amear it all over the screen.

If don't get any help from Sony or 3m and feel the need to try something I would think about a spray oil like silicone. Glue will usually ball up as it's rubbed and the spray will keep it from sticking. Usually silicone is pretty good when it comes to plastics. Anything you try I would pick a very small spot in a corner to test it out first. Of course this is just an opinion and I have never tried it.

Is the screen a anti glare or a smooth plastic? There are some companies who make scratch removing products since you could mar the finish up some trying to remove the glue.

What ever you try just try it on a tiny spot in the corner corner first. If you don't get any good answers from Sony or 3M I would consider trying alcohol or maybe WD40.

Try spraying some of the adhesive on a clear piece of plastic and trying stuff to remove it to see if it hurts the plastic and to see if it works, no use trying stuff that don't get it off.

I agree that you should do this really soon, may be to late already. Good luck.

This may sound strange, hell it will sound strange, but try very gently use your fingertip ( provided your finger tips are somewhat smooth and are not coarse from what every you may do for a living ie: mechanic / construction worker etc). Run your finger tip along the fold of your nose ( I told you this would sound strange) it will pickup an oily deposit then very gently rub (massage) the stain inward toward the center of the stain so as not to spread the contamination further take your time and be patient, I use this method to remove sticker adhesives from lucite and Lexan surfaces and it works very well, there is also a product called DeGunk which is made from adhesive removals but I would test this in a unobvious area of your screen ( along the lower edges or corners) once the adhesive is gone clean the area with a very mild soap solution and gently buff it dry. Good Luck.

Try it on a demo at walmart first. lol

Ide try that googone stuff its got citris based acids in it that dont really affect anything but sticky stuff. Ive used it on almost everything.

If you want ill try it on mine first im that confident in it.

What type of tv is it?

I have 2 LCD monitors and my Vizio, im willing to be a tester. I just dont have any 3M sticky spray. lol

Default Glue removal nearly worked out, what can i use to clean screen after it's removed?

I decided that with there being no way i could afford to get the television screen replaced or to buy a replacment TV i should just go for it. I rubbed the screen with a dry cloth and the glue jsut peeled off. I did it on the smallest effected area first and all the glue has come off (apart from the odd part smaller than a pixel) , but there are scratch marks around where the glue was (with the tv off you can see where the glue was) these do not in anyway prohibit my viewing experience!
Although they don't appear to effect viewing they do show up in the sun, is there a way i could remove these marks or scratches? Like a mass produced cleaning solution so i know it is guaranteed not to cause more damage?!
Now all i have to do is apply the same method to getting the much thicker and larger areas off! I'll take a break after 6 hours!
Thanks for your suggestions

Try using a water based lubricant first before you rub it so you do not scratch the screen when rubbing. You choose a water based lubricant so that you can later use distilled water remove that. Please note i have never had to try this, but I suggest you try a little spot somewhere to see if it helps, before trying the whole screen.

The best thing would be to put some more of the glue on something else and try various techniques until you find one that works. All of this before messing with the stuff on your TV.

I'm glad to hear you've just about resolver your problem I would try to live with what you've accomplished already, before you do irreparable damage.

The stuff used to coat lenses eg telescope lenses might be your best but expensive bet. I know that car wax can be used to fix scratches in CDs. but i am not sure how it would look on a TV.

Car wax is not a good idea, especially if he has a Non-Glare screen surface (Matte finish), as wax would create a shiny spot, and would eventually yellow and discolor.

Just tossing up ideas. Clear coats like those used to fix up the discolouration of car headlights could also be considered.
