On the screen you can see black streaks just like a film that seems to be comming off. The TV is 5 years old its a Sony 36 inch. can not find the model # XXXXX than what is on the friont (SRS-BBE). I bought it from Best Buy. I did research the web and found 22 other complaints about this same problem, however Sony say's no such problem has been made to them.Being A Camera Nut I am aware that you can not use any type of cleaner or chemical to clean. It has only been cleaned with a micofiber cloth lightly damp, as suggested by Sony.

Although Sony will not admit to the problem of the coating peeling from the screen there is little that can be done except for replacement of the screen. Not knowing the model number, which would be on the back of the TV near where the power cord is attached, I cannot tell you if the problem is the protective screen, or the CRT itself.
