How To Clean a LCD Screen , TV or Display

In this tip , I will be explaining how to clean your LCD screen. This information is applicable to camera screens , TV's and computer screens.

You will need

90% isopropyl alcohol
Microfiber Cloths
10min of your time

#1 Go out and buy some microfiber cloths. They are available from most big stores at about $1-$1.50 each. Cut your cloth into smaller sections (about the size of a cigarette box) and save the rest for another cleaning.

#2 Mix your 90% isopropyl alcohol in a 50/50 ratio with water. I recommend you use surgical gloves as the alcohol may irritate your skin. This will be your cleaning solution. You will only need about two tablespoons full , so don't make too much.

#3 Take two of your microfiber cloths and dampen the one really well with your cleaning solution. There should be no fluid leaving the cloth if squeezed...otherwise , you have to much.

Now wipe your screen first with the damp cloth followed by the dry one and repeat once. This should leave your screen nice and streak , smudge and fingerprint free.

Remember to store the isopropyl alcohol in a safe place is it is poisonous and flammable and discard unused solution after use in the sink while running water with it.

Please remember to rate this solution if you found it helpful.

Kind Regards

e500 viewfinder does not display subject when tasking pix

Page 20 of your user manual manual explains about each time the INFO button is pressed while in shooting mode. The camera is not a live view LCD screen so after it shows you normal information and then detailed information if you press INFO button again the camera screen will shut itself off. To turn the screen on again you need to press INFO again. This is normal camera behavior.
