    I am so angry because it is wasn't just one scratch, it was as if they were trying color something. Can't punish them because I didn't see it, but how do I fix it or replace it. It's a Sony KP51SW520. Help

    False alarm, I took the flashlight to shine it on the screen to see what it was and I was able to wipe it off with a little extra effort. That was a close one, got to keep an eye on them and make sure the wife instructs them not to go near the t.v.

    I was going to suggest Brasso to get those scratches out, but I see you got lucky.[​IMG]

    Tell them any damage they do to the TV comes out of their college fund. [​IMG]

    I was browsing the new Blues Brothers DVD playing musical numbers for my three year old the other day. I was on the menu and he runs up to the tv and says "I want THIS one!" and pokes the screen. My wife nearly flew out of her chair - she was far more concerned about the screen's safety than I was.

    THAT'S why I married 'er!

    Those electrified fences work very well with cattle; perhaps a scaled down version would work for you.
