It no chemical was used get a new lens cloth like for glasses and see if you can remove them---do not use force as the screen has a coating that can be damaged.

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.

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.

I think I ruined my ME Super?

Not sure about melting it........ i would be concerned about removing the special coating on the lens. i managed to ruin a digital camera that was tho it was not an expensive one... it still works but the quality of the pictures just isn't the same. be that as it may... use a very clean lint free cloth and a lite amount of water to polish the lens.... it may just be a clouding on the lens that needs to be removed.

Blue mark

If it is on the lens itself , you can simply wipe it off.

If this mark shows even when there is no signal in the unit and you wiped of the lens , you might be looking at a burnt LCD

There is a Special coating on the Screen to prevent glare. It all depends on what they used to wipe it down. Anything with an ammonia base to it "Not Good" You can try and wipe it down with a damp Micro fiber cloth. But it really sounds like you streaked it pretty bad. Look in your local Yellow pages for a company that will re coat it for you.
