With a conventional projection type screen on CRT type televisions this is not a problem,but with the newer DLP type screens the fiber of the Fresnal screen acts like a spounge and soaks up any liquid introduced.If you try to clean it it will smear and make it worse.You can remove the screen assy an clean it with Windex but allow it to dry properly.I do not see a problem with cleaning this screen,but make sure you put the screens back the way they were.I must also note that it is no easy task removing this particular screen assy.Good luck

I have a Samsung DLP-TV, HL-T5055W. The instructions say to clean it only with a clean dry cloth, well my dog made nose prints on the screen. Is there anything I can use to clean them off, since a...


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.

Children sprayed water on 46" lcd TV, and it looks


Oh dear! I would check your household insurance if it was an accident, just in case a replacement is required.
Most items that get wet rarely recover without problems.
The water should not be able to get into the screen as it is a sealed. If the water has not entered the TV, you may get away with wiping the screen with an almost dry cloth that has dilute detergent on it, (washing up liquid and warm water is fine). That will remove the streaks.
Good luck!

Mitsubishi TV Screen Water Stain Problem


You can use warm water and a soft cloth to try and clean it, but it will probably leave some evidence that liquid existed between the two layers at some point. Mitsubishi will deal screens directly to their customers if you ask nice enough and are willing to install yourself.

Only if it is the protective front screen that the issue is with. the only way to take the protective screen out is to open the tv. A service tech can do this for you however it will not be a cheap fix.

Water behind screen


Did you just sell your TV? Because if you did, I'm probably the one who just bought it. Paid $200. Anyways, if not, I did fix it. I dismantled the TV, starting with the bottom. Pull off the speaker cover then unscrew everything on the bottom in order to loosen the top screen portion. Unscrew the top screen and pull it off slowly, disconnecting the one wire that connects it to the rest of the TV. Once the screen is off, you can seperate from the frame it by unscrewing it. I then cleaned both screens (there are two layers) with distilled water and a microfiber cloth. You might be able to use other cleaning methods but I recommend plenty of water and then a non abrasive cloth. Make sure it's clean and dry before putting it back up. Picture is like new and I love it!

Liquid under screen


You need to take the screen off the front. You will find the screen comes away from the frame and seperates into two sheets. The liquid is seeping inbetween the two. If you clean it with Meths it should sort it without marking it.
