Hi,

The windex will dry out, I am sure. But it may take 5 to 8 days!

So, I suggest you just let it sit for a few days. It should clear up. You can try it each day and see if any progress has been made, but depending on how far into the electronics the windex went, it will take longer and longer to dry out.

If the problem still persists, order a replacement screen.

Hope i helped you.

DO RATE THE SOLUTION.

Thanks for using "Fixya'.

I did something wrong.....


Windex is not the best cleaner. Bed and Bath Beyond has a very good NON-Streak class cleaner that I tell my customers to use. The best solution is NOT to Spray directly onto the TV Screen. Remember the glass is only delivering the picture from an RGB projection unit sitting inside the enclosure. It is not the electronic projector and the screen is separate. It can be replaced if damaged; however I believe it is only streaked and needs proper cleansing. If you get the new cleaner, spray the solution onto a soft cloth and wipe the exterior screen. Promptly wipe it dry and if you need to do this a few times, eventually you will get the glass clear and enjoy the show.

Cob webs behind screen


The frame around the screen just pops off. Unscrew the plastic holders from the chassis frame and the screen will come off allowing you to clean everything inside easily. The "2" thin screens are easily cleaned and put back on easily also. Don't do what I did and think the screens go into the front slot of your plastic brace, they slide easily into the wider slot. You'll also be able to clean the dust from the reflector and guns with Windex. Much better picture after wards, trust me. You would be surprised how much dust may have accumulated on the lenses.

What do you clean the led tv screen with?


Hi, just a soft cloth/swiffer is great for the dust. NEVER spray anything on the screen. If you have kids and it is not dust. Use mild soap/or windex. Spray onto a lint free cloth. Paper towls can scrach the screen over time.Buy are ok if you do not rub hard. just put the windex or soap water on the rag/or towl. Also DO NOT set anything on top of the TV you own. It will cause the screen to bow. I have the same one. Mirror is on the top of tv insted of angled on the back. Cool idea. But not to well thought through. Needs more support to hold something.Looks great,and takes up only 10" but the sound not happy with. Pict is great. Hope this helps. Todd toddthetvmd@yahoo.com

My nephew spray windex on my dlp tv and not is in between both screens n it black but you can move the water still with your fingers


Well I'll say this. There has been no damage done yet. The problem is that the windex has wicked up in between the Lenticular screen and the Fresnel lens screen. If you attempt to seperate both screens yourself then I can guarentee you will damage both screens.
Not cheap to replace both screens. The screens CAN be cleaned with a screen cleaner from Screen Clean but the real problem is finding a Highly qualified technician who has done this many times before. The Fresnel lens screen is EXTREMELY soft and has tiny ridges that damage very very easily and you will see permenant black streaks in the picture. Never use Windex,Amonia or 409 and the like cleaners on the screens. When you use a screen cleaner, spray the cleaner on a MICRO cloth (Very Soft) then carefully clean the scree. Like I said, the screens can be cleaned safely only by a Highly skilled technician. The black spots from the windex will not eventually go away. Contact the tv manufacture as they can direct to a authorized service center they trust.

Screen cleaning


Use any lintless cloth. Spray any clener you use on the cloth, not the screen. I often just spray a little Windex (or store equivalent) onto a terrycloth rag and use that.

Moisture behind screen


It is difficult to clean/remove the screens. Best case senario, it will dry up leaving little to no water mark. There are three screens, liquid gets between them and it sucks it in. Disassembly and cleaning will fix, but the screens are very fragile and cannot be wiped without potential damage. Any dust, dirt between them will show in the picture. Proceed at your own risk.

Remove the upper back and clean the three projector lenses with Windex and soft paper towel. You have dust build up. If there are smokers in the house then also windex the back side of the screen to get the nicotine film off. This cured my picture. I had lost fine detail and the picture looked like there was a white haze over it.

Computer monitor needs cleaning


Use window cleaner, like Windex. Spray it on a towel, preferably a soft cloth one, and wipe the screen down when it's off. Try not to press too hard in any one spot, either :).

Liquid in screen


The screen is two separate pieces of plastic. One is a fresnel screen and the other is a lenticular panel. They act together to disperse the light evenly. Yes the front bezel will come off and the screen will come out. But they are taped together with just a slight air gap between them. The windex was wicked up between the two panels by capillary action of the fluid and space between the panels. Trying to take the screens apart would be easy. The problem is the grooves in the two panels are almost microscopic so any attempt to rub them will leave a mark. Plus unless you have some kind of clean room the slight dust particle or hair that gets left in there will stick out like a sign when it is reassembled and turned on. The only hope to try to correct this is to removed the bezel and then the screens but do not separate them. Then wedge some tooth picks in the very bottom of the edge where the stain is being careful not to push the picks up into the viewing range. Then with a spray bottle of just water try to rinse the windex and wick up the water with a wedge of paper towel just inside the edge. The same action that got the water up there will wick it down.Repeat this several times to delute the windex as mush as you can. It may not get it all away completely but it should make it livable. After the last rinse leave the picks in and left the panels air dry before putting everything back together. The most IMPORTANT thing not to do is to lay the panels flat and flex them, this will allow the two grooved panels to chaff one another and they will be destroyed.
