How can I remove packing tape residue from a LCD tv screen

Customer Question

How can I remove packing tape residue from a LCD tv screen?

There is a product called "Goo Gone" that comes in a thin liquid form that will remove the tape residue without any abrasives. You simply apply with a damp cloth, let site for 50 minutes, then rub it off with another damp cloth.


The product is at the link below:

I asked a tv store in the are about that and they advised it would harm the screen.

I'm unsure why...I've used it with good results before. I will opt out and let another expert try and answer.

Actually, I was going to suggest WD-40 --Works like a charm, and I always follow up with Alcohol to remove the WD-40


But now that the salesguys have scared you to death...Oh, by the way did THEY suggest anything?


If Aric Kimball suggests Goo Gone and has SUCCESS with it, I would trust a guy that has had success , over a salesguy that doesn't want to be responsible for suggesting Nothing.


Do the Goo Gone...your screen is already driving you nuts with the tape marks.


Follow it up with Alcohol which should clean any leftover Chemicals


Alcohol and Water are the Two Most-Universal solvents on this planet. They'll clean up 95% of most compounds. WD-40 is one of them.


As for Goo Gone, I have never used it myself, but it's a CITRUS oil, and it's probably SAFER than WD-40 is.



As far as I'm concerned, I'm voting for Goo Gone. Oils lift tape residue -- Unstick it.

Then you wipe off the tape residue, and wipe off the Citrus oil with alcohol..


Makes sense to me....



If you have any questions, just ask
