How can i clean my plasma screen after it has been sprayed with a polish

If its a plasma screen you shouldn't be worried turn it off let it cool
and use a mild alcohol cleaner sprayed in a soft towel
Clean with it with jently passes until the polish is gone let it for a few minutes to dry out before you use your tv set Again
Hope I was helpful
(the reason you should not be worried is that plasmas have glass exterior filter that protect the inner plasma panel )

Hi i just bought a 32inch lg plasma tv and just wonderin whats the best way to clean your tv without causein any damage please get in touch thanks

Well first off, Id like to appreciate the fact that you are asking instead of just applying windex. Ugh. Best product to use without having to buy anything is a coffee filter. This takes off all the dust. You can use a regular duster on The back to keep it from building up and overheating, as plasmas naturally emit more heat. You can also go to any electronics store like best buy or radioshack and they should be able to sell you a tv screen cleaner. but never use chemicals directly on your screen. Occasionally using windex on a SOFT paper towel and then rubbing on your screen is ok if you have something sticky on it...but dont apply directly to screen. No Liquid of any kind should ever directly touch your screen. Windex dries quickly and therefore is safe sparingly. Notevery day.

Hope this helped! Please take a moment to rate :] Thanks

I used a soap/water solution to clean my plasma screen but used a regular cloth instead of microfiber and now there are horrible streaks on the tv that won't go away. Help! Is there anything I can do?

You can try to use a harsher cleaner like lysol but sometimes the streaks are permanent. The screen is glass but some tvs have a glare reduction layer that can be destroyed with harsh cleaners (like lysol). Your soap cleaning shouldn't have damaged it.. I would try just water and see if the streaks change. If they keep changing as you clean, its probably some scummy residue, but if they apprear to be permanent, then it could be damage. I always recommend the store bought plasma cleaner with the microfiber cloth, but if you smoke or have a really dirty tv, sometimes you have to cut it with lysol or something. Clean at your own risk, as anything not made to clean the tv can sometimes cause damage. I've seen paper towels scratch the glossy frames sometimes even.. good luck

2 year old daughter cratched my plasma screen with a magna doodle pen it is a plastic screen

Your plasma cover screen should be glass, not plastic. I have no knowledge of Panasonic or any other manufacture that made a plasma TV with plastic....all plasma TV's have a glass cover. Clean the surface with a rubbing alcohol solution and a cotton ball.

Black line in the middle of screen

It is possible the connector to from the address board to the screen may be need to be cleaned & re-seated, but almost 99% of the time this fault is a problem within the plasma screen & the only solution is for a replacement screen.

Plasma tv scratch

Things You’ll Need:

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

Clean Your HDTV Screen Properly
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

Coating film on screen has a 'hole' after cleaning

Not panic!

I'm reading it and i did it again, to give you the advise. the plasma screen is glass that's sure, then:

The actual problem is really simple. because i remember my last jobs with plasma and this is actually a film protector the manufacture use when the part is not installed yet in the actual tv set.
  • Your husband is right. (but the plastic is like one or two inches inside the frame and is hold it by the frame and the screws attaching the display.
  • if the tv is under manufacture's warranty have them clean their mistake. call them and make them peel it off for you.
  • but if there is not any waranty on it. then the solution is as you can figure it out . Have some one who can actually take all parts apart and finally peel off this film and put anything back together as is now. to let the tv cristal clear at the front.
