Assuming the screen is not actually broken - yes. 3 ways -

1) TV Repair (your Search the List category) place can use a screen repair kit to retouch the surface - typically bout $200 per a couple of web blogs.

2) you can buy a flat-screen TV screen repair kit and do it yourself - I hear they do a fair job, but will leave a visible blotch (similar to a greasy handprint) on the screen when viewed from the side as opposed to from the front.

3) 3rd way, but pretty much eliminates ever doing #1 or #2 because of the contamination, is rubbing some petroleum jelly into the scratches, then use a flat wadded rag to rub off the excess at an angle to the scratches (so you do not run the jelly out of the scratches) - works for small scratches same as clear fingernail polish works on glass scratches, but will not fix a major gougeor deep/wide scratch - will just make the scratched area fuzzy rather than a distinct line.

If the screen is actually broken - cracked through, can be repaired too but then you are talking $400+ per the web - versus $1000-3000 replacement cost depending on which 65" model you have.
