Just a quick question.
What is the best way to clean a LCD screen?
Socks, they seem to work better then you'd expect.
I bought a good quality microfibre cloth (I think it was meant to be a facecloth) and just use that with a little bit of water.
Hopefully you mean clean ones
I've got some screen wipe thingies, do they work?
Best not to; a lot of these things are designed for CRT monitors (glass) and even then, they usually contain chemicals which can damage the coating of the screen.
I'd just stick with water if I were you.
I bought some paper tissue type cleaners especially for LCD at Aldi early this year. I then dry them with a microfibre cloth which I bought from Wilko's so prevent smearing.
EDIT on the wipes it says "for use on LCD, TFT, scanners, monitors and coated glass" They were about £1.99 for a 100 but Aldi havent had them back in stock but I am sure I seen them else where I know betterware sell them.
PCWorld sell proper TFT/LCD screen cleaning tissues that are moist but don't contain alcohol. I wouldn't advise using tap water as it contains impurities and you'll end up with a screen with smear marks on it. Trust me I've tried it. Best use a soft dry cloth if you can (to remove dust) or the cleaning tissues I mentioned if the dirt is a little more persistent!
The TV manual usually has suggestions for cleaning. The Panasonic one does day do not use water.
I bought a cleaning kit from eBay which seems to work without damage. It includes a brush for dust, a spray of some sort, and a cloth.
Monster iClean works really well.
My LG screen came with a special cloth, very felt like, but the kind that doesn't leave fibres on the screen. Sort of a combination between microfibre and felt.
de ionised water and a soft cloth is all you need,
finger prints and any other marks wipe away and with de ionised water it leaves no streaky residue
You obviously don't use the right kind of cloth or the wrong type of water An e-Cloth (microfibre) will not leave any marks on the screen. You only use enough water to make the cloth plyable.
My TV manufacturer says use water and a soft cloth, nothing else.
Once I'm done cleaning, I occasionally have some marks. I have to wait til they're dry then use another dry cloth and rub them out.
de ionised water will stop the smearing, its only chlorine and flouride that leaves streaks,
i have a reverse osmosis water filtration system to purify water and this does a perfect job (bit expensive for just cleaning tv screen) it also cleans the windows streak free as well as the car.de ionised water is pretty much the same as far as purity goes and cheap enough
Hi ive been useing a product called plasma clean since last year for my lcd monitor and lcd tv and can highly recommend it.
