Did this video help you?

richard krebs: I never thought I would say, "I need to rub this bacon on my TV." but here we are.

Bill Harris: thanks it lightened up the shadow on mine. I used a frozen tube of Garlic on mine plus it keeps vampires away from my tv.

ohhhREALY: i will try this . i got an old tv with huge dark smudge mark down the screen :)

Riley Allis: Hey i'm using a Samsung relatively new Tv monitor for my computer and the shadows seemed to be related to my hdmi into my computer, at first i could angle it right then it would be fine but now i have a dark patch that cuts across the top half of my screen :/ will try the bacon but it if its hdmi related idk how its gonna go down

Thiago Melo: Worked for me... but only for a couple hours. It looked like it was fixed, but after some hours the shadow was back again... any suggestions ?

goldcard047: Well thanks a bunch, this has completely destroyed my credibility! I have a shadow on my TV as described. I didn't have any bacon in the freezer but I did have a frozen fish pie which presented a fairly flat surface. So I'm standing there rubbing a frozen Youngs Admirals Pie over the screen when my son's girlfriend rang him. He was sitting in the lounge watching me and I heard his end of the conversation which went something like "What am I doing? Nothing much, just watching my Dad rub a frozen fish pie over the telly" By the way, it didn't work. I may have been able to forgive you if it had but, as it stands you are now my public enemy number one! (only joking)

Perry Sass: Just received an older LCD from a friend who upgraded. I'd say about 2/3 of the screen is "in shadow" (slightly darker than the other 1/3, with what looks like a diagonal line demarking where the "bright side" turns to the "dark side." This is quite distracting, but otherwise, the picture is fine. Does this sound like a shadow due to wrinkling of the film? I imagine because the shadow is on such a large part of the screen, I would have to run the ice pack over it for quite a long time if this technique is to work, right? How long would you recommend and how hard are you supposed to press? Thanks.

Randi: Didn't work for me.. I think my tv is done, 7 years was enough I guess.. I have 2 big line shadows on my Vizio lcd 1080p

Philip Hultgren: Mmm bacon!

Ryan Rubin: Will this work on an LED/LCD screen? I have cloudy spots and the tv is only a year old. Thanks!

Arif Nur Rahman: im writing this while i hold my frozen mozarella cheese. lol

MARQUITA BURKETT: I seriously thought this was bogus! I tried it and it worked! The only thing is that it came back a few minutes later. I guess you have to keep doing it.

Jeff is: lighted up the shadow on mine, thanks 

Chris Walton: Damn it. I have shadowing on my tv but I'm a vegetarian!

jacobpablo13: Only try this with smoked bacon. I tried it with unsmoked and got electrocuted. Now i speak with a lisp... 

E RPaulsen: I have a KDL40S2000 which i inherited with the stain... Tryed this but I didn't see a big change. Do I need to do this several times? For how long? Oh I would be thrilled if this works in my case!

Bill Lee: When I first saw this , I thought "that is the stupidest thing I have ever seen" . But, being known to do stupid things , I decided to try it. I used a BLUE ICE cooler because bacon has gotten so darn expensive . It didn't work instantly. But, after about 5 minutes of running the ice pack over the bad area, my 2 inch wide dark line was gone.Thanks you treydaponq for saving me $600 that I was going to spend on a new TV.

Phil Stanton: Fix your monitor with.......

Benjamin Miller: Cannot believe this worked!!!

lisa: I have a samsung dlp tv with a 4" black shadow on the left side. I watched your video and was wondering if this would work with my tv? Just because it's not an LCD tv, it's a DLP, I really could use your help. Thank you very much.

Chris Sanders: Thanks alot for this! I just picked up a 42" Sanyo that had this on almost the entire left side of the screen and it cleared it all up. The TV was FREE lol cause they got tired of staring at it :D

Max Smith: Thanks a lot this worked great. 

SSSVideos: You are wonderful, this actually worked!! I tried it first when the TV was on, and it only helped a little, then froze the whole screen when it was cool, and then turned it on. If I try very hard I can sort of see a little shadow line left, but it's 99% gone!! Thanks so very much for saving me hundreds of dollars on a new TV! : )

Ryan Anderson: Absolutely incredible. Thought for sure my TV was doomed. Worked like a charm, and I can't thank you enough!!!

droitega: I am going to try this..... On my smartphone's screen, it has a dark spot-like really annoying. If it works I will buy you a fridge of bacons and beers matey:)

Iouri Chadour: Thank you - this helps a lot - I thought I may need to get a new TV

kylerb1981: The bacon introduction is my favorite part :D

Se7en: Will this work for my LED with back light clouding/bleeding??

treydaponq: There is some debate here. Personally I do the this with the TV switched on for about 5-10 minutes. This allows you to see where the shadow is and means the TV is not too hot to reduce the effects of the cold ice. If you do this this with the TV switched on, do this at your own risk! Obviously water and electricity don't mix which is why I only use ice in sealed plastic bags. It works for me. Also, don't keep the ice on there too long, I do it for about 10 seconds at a time. Hope that helps:)

desidevoke: Can i use a block of ice within a plastic bag? I should try this because I don't know if my LED monitor has dark patches or what. I describe it as it looks like a dark smudge which can't be cleaned lol.

curtmoody: It worked! You ROCK!!!

3nglisc: it just got rid of about 90% of the shadow blodge that i had in the middle of my sony bravia screen...thanks mate

Nikos Kougioumtzis: This Fix Works!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks bro!!!!!!!!

DSD Movies: Bought a new (very, very... very cheap) LED from Argos. When the screen is darkish, there are quite a lot of obvious dark patches. Anyone know if this is caused by the same thing? I'll try this tomorrow anyway. I will have no trouble returning the TV, it's brand new and there's this fault, but if I can avoid lugging it back up the road, I'd like to!

treydaponq: Hi, take it back. Uneven back lighting should not be present on a new TV regardless how cheap it is, It will only get worse! Best of Luck!

Le Perique: This worked for me! THANKS A LOT!

Richard Miller: just fixed our samsung lcd with a box of spring rolls. Thanks for the fix.

Kyle Ayala: awesome advice man, worked like a charm...thanks so much!!

SDFcommander: BRILLIANT! Well done man! I was looking all over for a solution to this problem. This wrinkle is VERY annoying and there is no way I can get a new TV right now. I used a frozen ice pack and wrapped it in a cotton cloth from an old t-shirt and that fixed the problem! again well done and thank you!

treydaponq: I can't guarantee it will work every time!

treydaponq: Try 30secs, check it, then another 30 and so on.

El Fenix: Thanks for this. I had some success with this technique on my Samsung 32" screen. Well worth trying this if you're considering replacing your TV.

treydaponq: Possibly might improve things, Ice pack won't fix every screen though. Some TV's have pixel burn and this is like a physical stain on the inside of the LCD panel. A downloadable screen refresher - eg a youtube clip made full screen size that flashes either colors or Black white strobe can supposedly help but never had much luck with those myself.

Bodo Blaze: Would this work on my Samsung? I've got a video uploaded of the faulty screen, please check it out & let me know. Thanks

treydaponq: Yes, any ice or icy product in a bag is fine so long as it has a flat edge and is packed in a sealed bag it should be okay. It works better on some than others, give it a go, it might work for you.

G1nge_UK: Wow, just tried this and it worked. Any idea how long it'll last for? Still stunned it works to be honest.

treydaponq: Freeze Spray often contains chemical propellents and alcohol which may damage the screen surface. I have used it before, but found it to be too cold for the screen and made it go white/blue.and took out the pixels for a while which is a bit scary. Personally with an expensive TV I would not risk it again as it is not as controllable in my opinion. Good Luck :)

mileyondisney: It actually works! Can't thank you enough for this. I thought I was going to have to buy another TV. But this trick actually fixed it. I used a frozen cod filet. Thanks!

Allen Grey: This really worked thanks!!!!!

AaronHJT: How long must you apply the frozen bacon for the shadow to disappear?
