Screen cleaning solution, smudge underneath display

Cleaned 46HM95 screen with electronic safe DLP screen cleaner. Solution dripped down underneath screen by the Toshiba emblem. the screen is now clean and dry but now there is a black smudge, almost looks like a ink smear, spread across bottom portion of screen. The liquid solution moves when the display is pressed, which is trapped inside the screen. The smudge seems to be disappearing, as the solution could be evaporating. Otherwise the picture is good. Any ideas besides don't let cleaning solution run down to bottom of screen and collect??

How Can I Clean The Fingerprints Off The Screen On My TV? spacer.gif To clean fingerprints and greasy smudges off your TV screen, first try using a dry, anti-static cloth and rubbing gently.
Note: Many Samsung TVs come with a screen cleaning cloth. Use that cloth and follow the directions on the package.
If that does not work, get a bottle of ScreenClean screen cleaning solution or similar screen cleaner. You should be able to get it at most regular and on-line stores that sell monitors or TVs. Put a small amount of ScreenClean on a clean, soft, dry cloth, and then rub the screen gently.
WARNING: Never use any type of window cleaner, soap, scouring powder, or any cleanser with solvents such as alcohol, benzene, ammonia, or paint thinner. Never use abrasive pads or paper towels. If you do, you can scratch the screen or strip the anti-glare coating off the screen and cause permanent damage.
Cleaning It Right There are four steps you must take to do the job right:
  • Unplug your TV before you begin to eliminate the risk of electric shock.
  • If you use ScreenClean or a similar screen cleaner, put or spray the ScreenClean onto the cloth. Never put or spray it directly onto your TV screen.
  • Wipe as gently as possible. LCD, Plasma, and DLP screens in particular are fragile and can be damaged if you press too hard.
  • Let the screen dry completely before you plug the TV back in.
Food and DLP Screens Getting sticky food such as peanut butter or jelly off the screen of a DLP TV is especially difficult because the tiny grooves in the screen's surface trap small food particles. In fact, you probably will not be able to remove the food entirely. If you need to remove sticky food from your DLP TV screen, follow the directions above, be patient, wipe gently, take additional time, and understand that you will almost certainly leave some food residue on the screen.

Toshiba 46HM95 Screen?


can you feel if the surface is rough has it been cleaned with an abrasive cloth like a scouring cloth used for dishes as this will scratch the surface of the screen try getting a good polish spray on but dont spray to much on and use a soft cloth ideally a proper duster cloth see if they polish out if not the the screen surface has been scratched this can be polished out but you will need to get a pro to do this as doing it your self could ruin the telly permanenty as this is a delicate job to do hopefully you should polish these marks off but if not i would get somebody out to look at the telly to get the scratches polished out of the screen this should not cost to much but will save the frustration of watching a smuged screen the only thing you can do yourself is try polishing the screen properly in case she cleaned it and the cleaning product is still on screen if not you will need to get the screen profesionally polished goto a tv repair shop and these should tell you who to call hope this is some help to you but their isnt much you can do yourself

do not use Windex. Or any other ammonia-based product. Trust me, ammonia and TV's is not a good combination.Chances are, your instruction manual agrees with me too.That Office Depot Screen Cleaner, along with many others out there, is safe to use - gentle on the screen - and will do a great job at cleaning.Usually that stuff will be < $25 for a decently sized bottle that should last about 3 years for a 50" screen that gets cleaned weekly. Most come with a micro-fibre cloth too. Overall not a bad investment. Will work great on the smoke residue on your tv - along with any computer screens and anything else in the house. Definately worth picking up.

How do I clean my lg screen on my tv properly


Hello
Buy one Bottle of Monster ScreenClean Home & Office Display Cleaner
Make sure your TV screen is completely cooled before cleaning. Have TV turned off for about 30 minutes before cleaning to allow screen to cool off. Unplug TV. Make sure the area where TV is located is well lighted. This will make it easier for you to see if you are leaving any smudges behind when you clean your TV screen. I suggest you get a Monster ScreenClean Display Cleaning Kit, unless you have a couple of clean and quality Microfiber cloths in your home. If so, you can buy the ScreenClean solution separately. Some LCD TVs come with a Microfiber cloth, but they are usually a bit small
Spray Monster ScreenClean to Center of TV
Assuming you are using the Monster brand display cleaner, remove the little plastic cap on top of the bottle pump. Please do not try to go cheap with display cleaning solution when you most likely have a not so cheap TV. The cleaning solution will be much cheaper than having your screen repaired or replaced. The Monster directions state to either spray the ScreenClean solution onto the Microfiber cloth or directly onto display surface. Although the Monster solution is drip resistant, it does trickle sometimes, although very slowly. For that reason, I suggest if you are going to spray your screen directly with the Monster solution, spray toward the center of the TV screen about 8 inches away from the surface. Do not worry, if you forget and spray the solution closer to the frame of the TV, the display cleaning solution is still rather slow in to trickle down your screen. Just use a little caution
Gently rub Microfiber cloth in a circular motion to apply the cleaning solution evenly over entire display. Repeat with dry portion of the Microfiber cloth if the TV screen needs extra polishing. You may get a smudge free cleaning without the dry portion of your cloth if your TV screen was not that dirty
To clean the frame of most LCD and plasma TVs use a clean eye glass cloth dampened with water. Make sure to go in one direction around the frame of the TV. Check manufacturers directions to be certain, but for most the eye glass cloth should be fine. Since it is made to take care of eye glasses, it does not scratch. For certain it works fine on the Samsung Touch of Color TV frames

Things You’ll Need:

* Television screen cleaning products
* Cleaning schedule
* Microfiber cleaning cloth

Clean Your HDTV Screen Properly
Step1
Read the warning labels on all your household cleaning products. Even glass cleaners might not be suitable for use on an HDTV screen, so check the manufacturer's warnings before you apply anything to the screen.
Step2
Keep chemical cleaners away from your HDTV on cleaning day. The harsh chemicals found in most common cleaning products will actually cause more harm than good.
Step3
Leave liquid cleaners under your sink when cleaning your HDTV screen. A liquid cleaner, whether it be water or a chemical cleaner, will drip down the screen and work its way into the interior of the TV, causing damage to your HDTV. You will be able to easily recognize when this happens, because your screen will develop smudges.
Step4
Use a cloth to clean the HDTV screen. Ideally, you should use a cloth that is recommended for HDTV screens, computer screens and other electronics. The word "microfiber" may be imprinted on the packaging.
Step5
Wet the microfiber cloth slightly. Just a hint of dampness is all you need. If water runs out of the cloth, then it's too wet and will cause smudges.
Step6
Develop a regular cleaning schedule for your HDTV screen. If you dust the screen daily, or at least several times a week, with your microfiber cloth, no other maintenance should be necessary. Not only will frequent cleanings make caring for your HDTV easier, but they will also enhance your viewing experience.
Step7
Prevent messes by asking family members and guests not to touch the television screen. You should also try to make sure children with sticky fingers do not come in contact with the screen.
Step8
Use a high-end cleaning product if you feel that regular dusting is not sufficient. Top-of-the-line television cleaning products are ideal for use on all HDTV screens, plasma screens, projectors and are safe to use around children and animals.

My nephew spray windex on my dlp tv and not is in between both screens n it black but you can move the water still with your fingers


Well I'll say this. There has been no damage done yet. The problem is that the windex has wicked up in between the Lenticular screen and the Fresnel lens screen. If you attempt to seperate both screens yourself then I can guarentee you will damage both screens.
Not cheap to replace both screens. The screens CAN be cleaned with a screen cleaner from Screen Clean but the real problem is finding a Highly qualified technician who has done this many times before. The Fresnel lens screen is EXTREMELY soft and has tiny ridges that damage very very easily and you will see permenant black streaks in the picture. Never use Windex,Amonia or 409 and the like cleaners on the screens. When you use a screen cleaner, spray the cleaner on a MICRO cloth (Very Soft) then carefully clean the scree. Like I said, the screens can be cleaned safely only by a Highly skilled technician. The black spots from the windex will not eventually go away. Contact the tv manufacture as they can direct to a authorized service center they trust.

Proper way to clean rca rear projection tv screen


my tv repair man said use a blackboard eraser and rub it on screen vertically - that is up & down only. He said to use no chemicals or cleaners, or you'll ruin it. He had a customer that had a child draw on it with crayons-he told her to leave it there because it's better than destroying the screen.

Smudge marks???


If they are grease marks you can use a warm water a soft cloth like a t-shirt and little dish washing liquid. Gentley wipe the area only stroking down or up--- NEVER SIDE TO SIDE---. Have a dry cloth ready if you drip water down the screen. Now if those are scuff marks, your done, they cannot be removed. They are like the old record albums with the grooves, once the grooves get distorted that's it. Good luck.
