Question about Sony KDF-E60A20 60 in. LCD HDTV

Water behind LCD Screen

Our 2yo sprayed water on the screen to "clean" it and now the water is puddled behind the screen. It is like the old oil stickers behind the screen - can see the picture fine through it and if you press it the water moves around it seems fine after you move it out of the way. However, I cannot get the water out. I tried a hair dryer, but it just moves the water around. HELP!!!! This tv is less than two months old.

Is there a process known to man that cleans windex streaks off an lcd screen?

How to Clean an LCD Screen
So, first of all, let's decide what we don't use to clean it:
Anything containing bleach or ammonia, such as Windex. That will react with the plastic and make the plastic screen become cloudy and discolored.
Anything sharp, pointy or abrasive.
Your easiest choice is one of those LCD cleaning solutions they sell in places where they sell computers. But they're expensive, and why bother when you can make your own solution for next to nothing?

What you'll need:
Distilled water (available at your supermarket; tap water leaves streaks and minerals).
White vinegar (you may substitute isopropyl alcohol; either way, make sure these substances are diluted before they come near your screen).
A clean, soft cloth (never use any kind of paper product).
A spray bottle.

In the spray bottle, mix the distilled water and alcohol/vinegar, in a 1:1 ratio.
Turn off the LCD display.
Spray the mixture onto the cloth, never directly onto the screen.
Wipe gently - oh, so gently - from top to bottom. Do it horizontally, too, if you think that leaves a cleaner result.
Let the screen dry before turning it back on.

Hands Off!
Fingers leave dirt and oil smudges that must be cleaned off. Also, every time you touch the screen you risk doing damage to those tiny creatures inside that hold the colored flashlights. Keep your fingers to yourself.

How do i clean the tv screen on my flat screen tv

Get a soft fine cotton cloth, dry and clean. Never use paper towels or tissues or even a bath towel as these will scratch the screen. Get some distilled water. You can buy distilled water at the grocery store. Get a clean spray bottle with a very fine spray and fill the bottle with the distilled water. Now add just a little isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol). Spray the liquid on the cloth and swipe from top to bottom on the screen until the screen is cleaned. Distilled water is better than tap water because it is more pure with minerals removed which would scratch the screen. The alcohol acts as a solvent to help remove dust and deposits. Never touch the screen with your fingers as they have oils which will leave a film on the screen. Never use a lot of alcohol. You want mostly water with just a hint of the rubbing alcohol mixed in.

What should I clean the screen with? I just bought this used and it looks dirty

You have to be carful in cleaning Flat Screen Televisions.
  1. Turn off the monitor. If the screen is dark, it will be easier to see the areas that are dirty or oily.
  2. Use a dry, soft cloth and very gently wipe the screen. A great choice would be the microfiber type of cloth used to clean eyeglasses.
    See Tip #1 below for kinds of cloths to avoid.
  3. If the dry cloth did not completely remove the dirt or oil, do not press harder in an attempt to scrub it off.
    Pushing directly on the LCD screen can often cause pixels to burn out.
  4. If necessary, dampen the cloth with distilled water or with an equal ratio of distilled water to white vinegar.
    Many companies also sell small spray bottles of special cleaner for flat screen monitors but the vinegar mixture is usually just as effective.
    See Tip #2 below for products to avoid.
  5. The plastic edge that surrounds the screen can be cleaned with any multipurpose cleaner but take care to avoid contact with the screen itself.
  1. Avoid using paper towels, toilet paper, tissue paper, or something like your shirt to wipe the LCD screen. These non-ultrasoft materials can scratch the screen.
  2. Avoid cleaning products that contain ammonia, ethyl alcohol, acetone, toluene, ethyl acid, or methyl chloride. These chemicals can react with the materials that the LCD screen is made of which could yellow the screen or cause other kinds of damage.
  3. Never spray liquid directly on the LCD screen or it could run inside the monitor and cause damage.
Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks.

How to clean screen

I have never seen a mfg that recommended anything but a soft cloth and warm water on it, and below is what your manual say about cleaning. You should just use what the manual says.

Use a soft cotton cloth to gently clean the screen.
2. The screen glass is very fragile. Do not scrape it with any sharp object. Do not press or tap
the screen to avoid cracking. When the screen is seriously contaminated, use a soft cloth
moistened with diluted neutral cleaner to clean the display. Wring water out of the cloth
before cleaning to prevent water from penetrating into the housing. Wipe the display with a
dry cloth after cleaning.

Cleaning lcd screen

It is recommended to use a simple alcohol solution to clean an LCD screen. This solution is made up of 1 part distilled water and 1 part 50% isopropyl alcohol. Be warned that isopropyl alcohol is flammable.
50% isopropyl alcohol is very common. If you find 70%, 91%, or 99% isopropyl alcohol, adjust the formula to use less alcohol and more distilled water.
By mixing these two in a bottle, you will produce a model cleaning solution. Remember not to use tap water -- only use distilled water.
Do NOT use tissues/Kleenex to wipe your screen. That is as ineffective, because they will leave little tissue partiels all over your screen . Try and find some microfibre cloth to clean your screen. Cloths that come along with prescribed glasses are usually good.
You may want to clean the rest of the actual screen before moving onto the LCD part. First dampen the cloth with the solution. You should never spray any sort of liquid directly onto the screen. Wipe the screen gently from top to bottom and wait for it to dry.
Be careful not to let the cleaning solution leak into the sides of the monitor. Also, be certain that you do not press hard on the LCD screen. You can permanently damage an LCD screen by pressing on it too hard.
If there is just dust on your screen, there is no need to fully clean it. To remove dust all that must be done is to wipe it away with a microfiber cloth. Simply wipe your screen from end to end gently with the cloth.

What products can I use to clean my childrens hand prints off of the screen?

The recipe is easy: Mix Isopropyl alcohol and distilled water in equal parts (50/50) inside an empty Windex-like bottle. Do not use tap water! Doing so will leave white smears on your screen after cleaning it up because of the dissolved minerals inside the water. When finished mixing, just close the bottle using the "spray" adaptor that comes attached to it.

Next, you will need to find a good, soft piece of microfiber cloth to clean your display. Avoid paper tissues at all cost! Using those on your screen would be just like scrubbing sandpaper on it and may scratch it permanently. You wouldn't want to do that right?

Now that we have everything we need, start by turning off your screen. Dampen your piece of soft cloth with your cleaning mixture and then wipe the display gently from top to bottom. Never spray liquid directly onto the LCD. When you're done, wait a few minutes to let your screen dry, and then turn it back on. Voila, you're done! Your screen should now be sparkling clean.
