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

How To Clean Laptop Screen With Household Products?


<p><b>Cloth</b> - Only use a 100%-cotton cloth that is soft and absorbent, either an old T-shirt, sock, or Turkish towel. Make sure you're not using a cotton/polyester blend that contains stiff filaments which can scratch an LCD's surface.<br /> <p><b>Note:</b> Paper towel or facial tissue should never be used because they contain wood fibers, also hazardous to LCDs, and definitely are not how to clean a laptop screen. Also remember to never use a dry cloth on your LCD monitor. Dust particles moved around with even the softest cloth could create scratches.<br /> <p><b>Liquid</b> - The best way to get a really clean laptop screen is to use isopropyl alcohol, containing 91% pure alcohol, with 9% de-ionized water, readily available at any drugstore or supermarket. It's perfectly safe for use on electronic equipment and LCD screens because it evaporates quickly and does not leave a residue. The lesser strength isopropyl alcohol 70% is used primarily for massage and muscle pain.<br /> <p>A 1:1 solution of distilled water and isopropyl alcohol 91% can be used to clean a laptop screen that is not heavily dusty or soiled with greasy fingerprints. Vinegar and distilled water in a 1:1 solution can also be used for light cleaning.<br /> <p>Certain household liquids should never be used on LCD's. These include ammonia and tap or mineral water, which leave permanent white spots and streaks. Household window cleaners should be avoided because they might contain ammonia, or other harmful chemicals which also can cause irreparable damage.<br /> <p>Another caution is to never spray a solution directly onto an LCD. Always spray the liquid on a cloth, only enough to moisten it slightly, and then apply to the screen in gentle, counter-clockwise motions.<br /> <p><b>How To Clean Laptop Screen With Special Cleaners?</b><br /> <p><b>Kits</b> - Micro-fiber cloths and anti-static solutions are packaged together and sold at office supply or electronics stores. The special solution leaves a slight film that protects a clean laptop screen, repels dust and smudges, and keeps it clean longer. The liquid should be sprayed onto the cloth, which only needs to be slightly wet, not dripping, when applied to the screen. There's a slight disadvantage to these kits. Certain solutions cause streaking, so it's best to do a little research before investing in this method.<br /> <p><b>Micro-fiber</b> cloths can be purchased separately and used with isopropyl alcohol 91%, and/or distilled water. Whether using the complete kit or the cloths alone, make sure the packaging designates the product is ''safe for laptops and LCD screens."<br /> <p><b>Anti-Static Cloths</b> - Many computer manufacturers, when asked how to clean a laptop screen, recommend anti-static cloths made specifically for cleaning without liquid of any kind. These cloths are formulated for advanced optical technology and are considered the best way to clean, polish and protect a laptop screen. Even greasy fingerprints can be buffed off using these cloths, readily available at electronics or office supply stores.<br /> <p>Similar cloths are made for cleaning camera or eyeglass lenses, and these can be found at any drugstore, optometrist or camera shop. Anti-static cloths are the quickest and easiest solution when you want the most advanced and easiest method to both protect and clean a laptop screen.<br /> <p>The above options offer a variety of easy and safe ways to care for your LCD monitor. With simple maintenance on a regular basis, a laptop screen will last for many years.<br />

Cleaning lady applied to much pressure when cleaning screen. Now I see her swipe marks. Is there a way to remove these marks?


Depends upon what the swipe marks are, exactly.

If they're just residues of whatever she used, then you should try gently wiping the screen down with a clean lint free cloth lightly moistened with a tiny amount of distilled water (the same type used to fill car batteries and steam irons). Re-fold the cloth regularly so that any dirt it picks up does not simply get laid back down elsewhere nor causes scatches. A microfibre cloth is ideal for this as it's also quite effective at lifting silicone wax residues left by many furniture polishes, although it may take a few attempts before the screen is acceptable again.

If the cleaning agent used was abrasive or contained certain solvents then it may have physically damaged the screen. The only cure is to replace the screen but that's rarely cost effective as it's overwhelmingly the single most expensive component of the tv.

If too much pressure was applied then the screen will either recover over a few days or it won't. if it doesn't then your back with the problem of replacing the screen.

In future, never, ever, let ANYONE but yourself dust and if necessary clean the screens of any of your tv's, monitors or similar devices. If you allow them to clean the casings then ensure that they know the correct way to do so (no chemicals, clean slightly dampened cloth ONLY) or do it yourself.

Cleaning


It is recommended to use a simple alcohol solution to clean an LCD or PLASMA 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 particles all over your screen . Try and find some microfiber 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 or PLASMA 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 or PLASMA screen. You can permanently damage an LCD or PLASMA 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. For smoke filled room, It would be good to clean it once a month when the smoke is not around during cleaning.

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.

Much like anything in your home, TV screens get dirty with fingerprints and dust and require a periodic cleaning. Keeping your TV screen clean is essential for ensuring a clear picture. However, cleaning the front of your TV is not something that should be left for the cleaning lady. The use of certain cleaning products and solvents can damage the front of your TV screen. Special care must be taken in order to make sure that your TV screen is cleaned properly.
Every kind of TV has different steps for proper cleaning. If you are unsure what kind of TV you own, consult your TV user's manual to ensure that you are using the right cleaning method.
  • Direct-View - Older direct view TV's can be cleaned with glass cleaner and a paper towel. Newer tubes that may contain any special coatings, like an anti-glare coating, should be cleaned with a damp cotton cloth. If you are unsure if you have any special coatings, it is best to be safe and use the damp cloth.
  • CRT Rear-Projection - Before you can begin cleaning, you need to determine if you do, or do not have a screen shield. A screen shield is a hard plastic cover over the front of the TV screen. If you can't tell, give the front of the TV a light tap. Another way to tell is to check for ridges in the screen area. If you can feel ridges on the screen, then you do not have a screen shield. Rear projection TVs without a screen shield require a special kind of cleaner and rag. These are available for purchase at your local TV service center. Those that do have a screen shield should be cleaned with a dry or damp soft cloth. If it's extremely dirty, a mild soap may be used. Do not use paper products, such as paper towels, to clean the screen shield. Paper products GA_googleFillSlot("TL-IMU-Article"); b3342371.3;abr=!ie4;abr=!ie5;sz=300x250;ord=[timestamp]? can easily scratch the surface of the shield. Screen shields can have a tendency to streak while cleaning. If this happens, use a dry cloth and buff the screen in a small circular motions.
  • Microdisplay Rear-Projection - All microdisplay TVs have some sort of screen shield on the front. These TVs should be cleaned with a damp cloth. Microdisplays with a shiny screen shield can be cleaned with a mild soap if extremely dirty. Those with a flat screen shield should not be cleaned with any cleaning agents. Do not use paper products to clean the front of the TV because they could scratch the screen surface.
  • Plasma - Plasma owners should clean the front of the TV with a soft, damp cloth. The use of a mild soap for heavy cleaning is acceptable. The use of heavy cleaning agents could strip the special coatings on the screen, and paper products can scratch the front of the TV.

  • LCD Flat Panel - Be careful with flat panel LCD TVs! Use a slightly damp soft cloth to clean the LCD screen, then immediately dry with a soft cloth. Do not press hard on the screen during cleaning. Doing so could cause severe damage to the display. Do not use any cleaning solvents, such as glass cleaner or soaps, to clean the LCD screen. Paper products could scratch the front of the screen. If you have a pet or child that rubbed something on the screen that you feel could stain or damage it, contact your local TV service center for assistance.
When dusting the TV cabinets, dust with a damp cloth or a mild cleaner. Paper products can scratch the surface of high-gloss cabinets, so avoid paper products. Heavy cleaners can strip the finish off of TV cabinets over time. When cleaning speaker grilles, dust with a dry cloth. Wet cleaners could stain or damage the grille cloth.
