My Daughter did the same thing on her Dora tv, I was a bit upset because she just got it for Christmas and she wrote on it with a marker, put stickers on the screen etc. I used Goof off or Goo Gone too. I used Goof off and It took it off but in the areas where there was writting by the bottoms it erased some of the stuff on the buttons which I didnt want to. Maybe Goo gone will be much better since it is an oil based, I would just becareful and rub on and rub off quickly because it may discolor or eat up some of the plastic.

Rubbing alcohol takes off permanent marker. I would do a small test area first to make sure it doesn't damage the finish of the TV.

Have you tried using a Mr Clean Magic Eraser? That thing takes anything off. Good luck!!

Try WD-40. I heard it works to remove spray paint so maybe it will work on perm. marker too. Worth a try. Good luck.

I agree w/ the Mr Clean sponge. It gets marker off of walls and hardwood floors I know, but never had to try it on a tv (yet). Is it on the screen or the wood?

Use a Q-tip and dip it in some rubbing alcohol to remove permanent marker stains. Did he write "all over" the TV or just a spot? If he wrote all over it, you may need to skip the Q-tip and use a cotton swab to get it all off. But for starters, I would do a test spot with the Q-tip.

Hi R..My only suggestion for the permanant marker would be to get one of those Mr. clean erasers from the store and see if that will work.I have seven kids and i always have them on hand.Sometimes they will work and sometimes they won't but it sure can't hurt!! I know wgat your going through..I have 6 girls that liked to draw on the walls and 1 little[stinker]boy that likes to destroy everything!! Good Luck and God Bless!! L. S
