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 lenses on philiphs 60pp9202 tv


There are cleaners out there for flat screen TV's, monitors, lenses and that sort of thing, However good old plain water will do. Clean with a damp cloth, make sure its not too wet, wring it out well, wipe over screen it should do perfectly. DO NOT use regular household cleaners as they may damage the screen.

How do I clean the screen for my wd 73c9


I use a very slightly damp cloth with just water. Soap can dull the screen. Wipe lightly. Don't scrub or you could gouge lines. Dry with another cloth immediately.

Dark smudges/spots on my HDTV screen


The model indicated here Sony Grand WEGA KDF-50WE655 is a LCD rear projection and rarely if ever requires cleaning.

If black spots or such are gradually appearing the issue on this model is the optical light engine.

Set uses a LCD engine which the lamp shines directly into and heat from that very hot lamp can damage sensitive baffles inside the engine.

I would suggest also you contact Sony as they have on several models extended the warranty for this kind of issue---Engine is very expensive part and several of these Sony sets were involved in a class action lawsuit--hence they are dealing with them.

Do not take no for an answer if you want them to help you---the hinge that is sqeeks gets oiled...........

How & what do I use to clean the mirror


You can use glass cleaner to clean the mirror once a year (more for heavy smokers). Some models use the glass mirror, some use the Tin Foil like stuff on wood that scratches really easy, on those use a softer paper or cloth and spray it and wipe the spray off in one direction gently so you don't damage the fake mirror.
also do not clean the front screens (lentic and fresnel lens) you will create white/clear spots on them , damp a soft paper or cloth withwater
if you need to wipe the outside screen protector.
hope this helps

How can I clean my screen. I have a 1990 colortrak 2000 46'' projection televion. Please help.


it is recommended to only clean with a dry cloth but does not always work.
Use a damp cloth Never spray water or polish on the screen it will run down between the screen and the frame and do damage. Damp means very lightly wet. Use a spray into the cloth and wipe and then dry. make sure the cloth is quite soft else it will scratch and mark the screen

please rate our help to keep the service online

HOW TO CLEAN TV SCREEN;

Much like anything in your home, TV screens get dirty with fingerprints and dust and require a periodic cleaning. Keeping your TV screen clean is essential for ensuring a clear picture. However, cleaning the front of your TV is not something that should be left for the cleaning lady. The use of certain cleaning products and solvents can damage the front of your TV screen. Special care must be taken in order to make sure that your TV screen is cleaned properly.
Every kind of TV has different steps for proper cleaning. If you are unsure what kind of TV you own, consult your TV user's manual to ensure that you are using the right cleaning method.
  • Direct-View - Older direct view TV's can be cleaned with glass cleaner and a paper towel. Newer tubes that may contain any special coatings, like an anti-glare coating, should be cleaned with a damp cotton cloth. If you are unsure if you have any special coatings, it is best to be safe and use the damp cloth.
  • CRT Rear-Projection - Before you can begin cleaning, you need to determine if you do, or do not have a screen shield. A screen shield is a hard plastic cover over the front of the TV screen. If you can't tell, give the front of the TV a light tap. Another way to tell is to check for ridges in the screen area. If you can feel ridges on the screen, then you do not have a screen shield. Rear projection TVs without a screen shield require a special kind of cleaner and rag. These are available for purchase at your local TV service center. Those that do have a screen shield should be cleaned with a dry or damp soft cloth. If it's extremely dirty, a mild soap may be used. Do not use paper products, such as paper towels, to clean the screen shield. Paper products can easily scratch the surface of the shield. Screen shields can have a tendency to streak while cleaning. If this happens, use a dry cloth and buff the screen in a small circular motions.
  • Microdisplay Rear-Projection - All microdisplay TVs have some sort of screen shield on the front. These TVs should be cleaned with a damp cloth. Microdisplays with a shiny screen shield can be cleaned with a mild soap if extremely dirty. Those with a flat screen shield should not be cleaned with any cleaning agents. Do not use paper products to clean the front of the TV because they could scratch the screen surface.
  • Plasma - Plasma owners should clean the front of the TV with a soft, damp cloth. The use of a mild soap for heavy cleaning is acceptable. The use of heavy cleaning agents could strip the special coatings on the screen, and paper products can scratch the front of the TV.

  • LCD Flat Panel - Be careful with flat panel LCD TVs! Use a slightly damp soft cloth to clean the LCD screen, then immediately dry with a soft cloth. Do not press ******* the screen during cleaning. Doing so could cause severe damage to the display. Do not use any cleaning solvents, such as glass cleaner or soaps, to clean the LCD screen. Paper products could scratch the front of the screen. If you have a pet or child that rubbed something on the screen that you feel could stain or damage it, contact your local TV service center for assistance.
When dusting the TV cabinets, dust with a damp cloth or a mild cleaner. Paper products can scratch the surface of high-gloss cabinets, so avoid paper products. Heavy cleaners can strip the finish off of TV cabinets over time. When cleaning speaker grilles, dust with a dry cloth. Wet cleaners could stain or damage the grille cloth.
