You can use cotton to clean it. Spray the cloth with water or a mild window cleaning solution then wipe the screen. You can use the same damp cloth to clean the entire monitor case, as well. If you prefer, you can also use moistened paper towels to clean CRT monitors, You will be only cleaning the outside of the monitor case and screen. Never open the monitor casing which contain electric voltage that can cause a shock.

Make sure the monitor is off. Spray a small amount of glass cleaner on a paper towel.
Then wipe the dirt away.
Thanks,

How to clean screen


I dont know which type you have but here is how to clean either:

CRTs
Those big chunky CRT monitors have glass screen which are easily cleaned. The important thing to remember is that you don't ever want to spray any liquid directly on the screen. Instead, spray the cloth with water or a mild window cleaning solution then wipe the screen. You can use the same damp cloth to clean the entire monitor case, as well. If you prefer, you can also use moistened paper towels to clean CRT monitors, You will be only cleaning the outside of the monitor case and screen. Never open the monitor casing which contain electric voltage that can cause a shock.

Flat Panel LCDs
LCD monitors are often called flat panel monitors because they are flat and thin. These are the types of screens that are used in most laptop computers, and they are also becoming very popular for desktop computers. LCD screens are softer than CRT glass screens, so they require some extra tender loving care. Keep your fingers and sharp objects away from these screens since they are susceptible to damage and scratches.
Use a soft dry cotton cloth to remove fingerprints and smudges from the screen. If this does not completely remove the dirt and splotches, use a small amount of isopropyl alcohol on the cleaning cloth that has been dampened with water. (A small amount of vinegar can be substituted for the isopropyl alcohol.) Again, spray the liquid on the cloth and never directly onto the screen. Do not use paper towels on an LCD screen as they can scratch the screen. Never use ammonia, ammonia-based cleaners, or strong cleaners which can cause the surface to yellow and become brittle.
It is good to have a special clean cloth that is dedicated to use on the LCD screen. Don't pick up any old rag, as dirt particles in the rag can scratch the surface of the screen. Special LCD cleaning cloths are available and can be an excellent investment.

My ViewSonic monitor on my desktop has very, very thin lines of color running vertically all the way across the screen. Has been like this - according to former owner _ since he got it and sprayed th


I am under the impression of the following:

Some cleaning spray must have leaked in through the bezel and went on to a circuit board. In this type of case this would be a type of matrix screen drive problem. If any of the boards are damaged they have to be replaced. I have my doubts you can buy circuit boards and service the monitor yourself. It would be much more reasonable to replace the monitor.

When cleaning a monitor with liquids, dampen the soft tissue with the cleaner, and then do the cleaning on the screen. Make sure no liquid will run down to below and beneath the bezel.

Can I clean my ViewSonic LCD Monitor (VE510b) with water (using cloth)? Please tell me easy procedure of cleaning my ViewSonic LCD Monitor screen. email: amdesh1@gmail.com


Hi


Time Required:
Cleaning a flat screen (LCD) monitor usually takes less than 5 minutes Here's How:
  1. Turn off the monitor. If the screen is dark, it will be easier to see the areas that are dirty or oily.
  2. Use a dry, soft cloth and very gently wipe the screen. A great choice would be the microfiber type of cloth used to clean eyeglasses.
    See Tip #1 below for kinds of cloths to avoid.
  3. If the dry cloth did not completely remove the dirt or oil, do not press harder in an attempt to scrub it off.
    Pushing directly on the LCD screen can often cause pixels to burn out.
  4. If necessary, dampen the cloth with distilled water or with an equal ratio of distilled water to white vinegar.
    Many companies also sell small spray bottles of special cleaner for flat screen monitors but the vinegar mixture is usually just as effective.
    See Tip #2 below for products to avoid.
  5. The plastic edge that surrounds the screen can be cleaned with any multipurpose cleaner but take care to avoid contact with the screen itself.
Tips:
  1. Avoid using paper towels, toilet paper, tissue paper, or something like your shirt to wipe the LCD screen. These non-ultrasoft materials can scratch the screen.
  2. Avoid cleaning products that contain ammonia, ethyl alcohol, acetone, toluene, ethyl acid, or methyl chloride. These chemicals can react with the materials that the LCD screen is made of which could yellow the screen or cause other kinds of damage.
  3. Never spray liquid directly on the LCD screen or it could run inside the monitor and cause damage.

Can I clean my ViewSonic LCD Monitor (VE510b) with water (using cloth)? Please tell me a procedure how can I clean my ViewSonic LCD Monitor screen.


To clean the monitor first turn it off then use something like a microfiber cloth or something that is not abrasive to clean the surface. Don't press down excessively this can cause damage to the monitor. If that does'nt get all the fingerprints and such off a solution of distilled water with a little
white vinegar will do fine just use it lightly and don't drown the monitor. Make sure to use just enough solution to lightly dampen the monitor and not so much as to run down the monitor and
risk getting inside where the circuits are.

What do i clean the screen with?


Cleaning is simple. Vacuum the rear vents to remove any dust that has built up.

For screen and the fascia, -

1. Unplug the monitor from the power supply.
2. Fill a bowl with warm water with some washing up liquid - just as you would to clean dirty dishes. Soak a soft clean cloth in the water (Kitchen cloth - NONE ABRASIVE!! and not a sponge!), and wring the cloth out so that it is damp (not wet!) and gently wash the screen. When finished use kitchen roll to dry off the monitor.
3. Stubborn marks on the LCD, using the same damp cloth, apply a spot of neat washing up liquid to the cloth. Clean as before - DO NOT PRESS on screen. When finished, use kitchen roll as before.

Voila!
