Since the lens plastic is not tough to damage, I wouldn't use anything more harsh than a window cleaner such as Windex or similar.
Depending on the circulation of the air inside from the fan, there could be spots on the inside.
By viewing them from an angle with a flashlight, you may be able to see if they are in- or outside the lens.
If inside, you will have some panel removal to do.

How to Clean a Flat Screen TV?

Use a screen cleaning solution, very cheap little canister of anti static spray and usually comes with lint free cloth for light polishing.
Couple of quick squirts of solution then very gently wipe over the whole screen until all the dust has been absorbed and the wet streaks evaporate.
Don't need to go mad scrubbing, just light polishing.
A damp cloth is just as good but only damp and not dripping water, just wipe over screen. The only problem with that is it leaves streaks so just wipe over with a dry kitchen towel or something similar.

My son took a baby wipe to the LCD tv screen and now there is a purple streak I tried a damp soft cloth but that didn't work any suggestions how to clean the baby wipe off?

Try a 50/50 solution of water/rubbing alcohol and a micofiber cloth. DO NOT SPRAY THE SOLUTION ON THE SCREEN ITSELF but on the cloth then wipe down the screen. I hope the screen isn't damaged !!!

How do I clean the monitor? my cat has put nose prints all over it, and when I attempt to wipe it off (turned off, of course) I still cannot get it clean.

The best way to clean an LCD monitor is to take a lint free cloth and spray it with Windex or vinegar and water solution, or in a severe case, summer windshield washer fluid (the kind meant to remove insect guts). Make sure the cloth is DAMP, not WET (we don't want anything dripping out of it) and wipe the screen thoroughly.
Dry with another lint free cloth while the screen is still damp.

Samsung LCD screen cleaning technique

Hard crusties? what do you do to have this type of matter on the screen?

Be carful with what you use on the screen, a damp cloth is permissable. This does not mean spraying liquid directly on the screen and wiping it

Spray into the cloth or dampen cloth and wring out well. Do not let any excess water drip down the screen especially if it gets into the TV via the outer frame around the screen.otherwise poof it will never work again

Scratched Finish on Screen While Cleaning

Here are some solutions to consider. Try in an inconspicuous place first.
1) Use a clean WHITE pencil eraser. Yes WHITE pencil eraser. Some people use a pink eraser and then a white eraser over that for faster removal. Wipe residue off with a damp cloth.
2) Use White Petroleum Vaseline Jelly over the stratches. This may have to stay on an hour before wiping off.
3)You may also get commercial LCD scratch removers on the 'net.

An LCD screen should only be cleaned by using a damp(not wet) with water microfine cloth. Never use household cleaners of any kind.
