This answer was found on the net... and makes sense! But I always say to check with the mfg's instructions! (Please leave feedback!)

Q: I have a new LCD television, and I'm not sure how to clean it. With my old tube set, I just spritzed it with Windex, but the surface of my new TV isn't glass.

A: "We recommend using LCD cleanser that can be purchased at any electronics store," says a customer service tech for Westinghouse, a manufacturer of popular LCD televisions. The cleaner can be found in both spray and wipe form. But what exactly goes into these LCD solutions?

Kai Hui of MG Chemicals, makers of one of many available LCD cleaners, explains, "The main ingredient in most wipes on the market is water. There needs to be a small percentage of isopropyl alcohol (IPA) to help get rid of the grease from busy fingers." Some LCD cleaning solutions may include up to 50 percent IPA, according to Hui, but any more than that could damage the screens.

Since I'd never suggest you spend more money than you have to, I'd start with a clean, soft cloth and regular ol' tap water. You can add just a capful of isopropyl alcohol to a glass of water if you need something to help loosen the greasy gunk on the screen, so it can wipe off more easily. Get the cloth damp and then apply to the screen instead of splashing the screen and trying to wipe up the liquid; and always -- always -- use a clean cloth, as tiny, hard particles trapped in the fibers can scratch the surface of your screen.

SOURCE: 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.

How do I disassemble a Vizio E3D470VX Smart TV, to clean out the dust inside the Screen


Hi Alonzo,
To clean the dust inside the screen, you will have to disassemble the LCD panel. It is a very risky job and there is every chance of damaging the LCD screen unless you have a real good experience of doing it. If you are not good at doing such jobs, please let some professional do it for you.

While i was cleaning my Sony Bravia 40 Inch 1080p Flat panel LCD Screen, it had alot of dust so i used some cloth while i was cleaning it with cloth it made some kind of lines... scratches the scratches...


only use microfiber cloth to clean LCD panels, and no windex. Use 50/50 distilled water and denatured alcohol, or a dedicated LCD cleaner. Small scratches are not worth buffing out as screen itself is relatively soft plastic.

There is dust on the inside of the screen. How do I disassemble it to clean it?


Dust inside the LCD is rare...and not user removable. If it's between the actual LCD and a transparent cover, a good computer shop should be able to disassemble the screen and clean it for you. Don't try this yourself unless you are ready to buy a replacement screen. they are very fragile and easily damaged by probing fingers and screwdrivers.
