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.

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.

Directions:
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.

Use distilled water and a microfiber cloth for best results. If the screen is really dirty, use a diluted household cleaner, such as 409, either sprayed or sponged on, then dry with the microfiber cloth.

It sounds that there is some loose contacts to some connections to your Plasma display. Almost all plasma displays will have similar configurations to display circuits, will change only with the size of the screen. If you wish to get some details http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ Products powered by electricity should be serviced or repaired only by experienced professional technicians. Any attempt to service or repair the product by anyone else could result in serious injury or death. If you are not familiar with electronics, do not attempt to repair. Whether you suffer fatal electrical shock. Instead, contact the nearest service centre.

How can I clean my plasma screen covered in sticky hand marks from my children!!!


You don't need expensive screen cleaning solutions to clean your screen. To remove the dust, use a good quality (like a micro-fiber) cloth. Then use separate cloth moistened, not saturated, with dish water to gentle wipe the smudges off. Do not scrub the screen, be patient and work them softly. Most TV mfg recommend this method. I hope this was of some assistance.

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.

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.
DUST:
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.

Hi, I have a Sony Bravia 52 in. LCD , my little girl put her hand on the screen and now you can see the print of her palm. Is there somthing we can use to clean that off ?? Thanks


If it's just a dirty palm print on the surface, you can clean it off with Windex or another spray glass cleaner. Spray the cleaner on a soft cloth and wipe the screen - do not spray the screen directly. This will prevent the cleaner from running down the screen into the unit.

On the other hand, if your daughter pressed hard enough on the screen to cause pressure damage to the display, the discoloration is permanent and you can't do anything about it. Some LCD's are made with a hard glass-like front surface and are fairly rugged, but others are softer plastic. Press too hard on those and you destroy the display at that point.
