Question about Vizio L32 32 in. LCD HDTV
We have lost track of our VISIO VW 42L HDTV manual and do not remember what you use to clean the screen. We do not want to spray glass cleaner on it unless its okay. Please reply to email address below. thanks So much.
I have two Vizio televisions. I have both a plasma and an LCD TV. The manuals for both televisions recommend nothing other than a soft cloth. I use a microfiber cloth that is meant for cleaning glasses. If there is something smudged on the television then I put a small amount of water on the cloth so that it is barely damp and follow right after with a dry cloth. I have heard many things about using baby wipes, alcohol and even laundry softner. I would never put any of these chemicals on my TVs. I have heard horror stories about how they have ruined televisions and frankly, I have invested too much money in my televisions to even risk ruining them with some harsh chemicals when just plain old water will do the trick. Hope this helps.

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.

DO NOT USE GLASS CLEANER.
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.
