    Hi,

    Total noobie to the AV forum, just have a question,... I own a Toshiba 43" rear projection TV and have somehow managed to get a few spec of c**p on the front of the monitor, what is the best way to clean the screen as all the userguide says is to use a dry cloth??... well that aint working, so any help would be great.

    Cheers

    Matt :thumbsup:

    I have had good results with my plasma using a micro fiber cloth from Aldi. It really does do the job and for 99p if it dont work, what have you lost? :)

    Well, I would have thought 99p, or is it a trick question? :suicide:

    I use the vacuum cleaner on blow (if you'll pardon the expression) and finish off with a feather duster! :laugh:

    Glad we've got that sorted, David! :thumbsup:

    Seriously though, I can understand people being concerned with what is obviously a somewhat fragile item.

    (I seem to remember one forum member recently, whose 2 year old decided it was a dartboard or similar!!!)

    My 46" Philips screen cost £400 to replace (fortunately under the guarantee as it had warped).

    So, Matt, whichever method you use: BE CAREFUL!

    My kids kindly splashed something sticky on the screen of mine....I found that a slightly damp cloth used very gently did the trick,but had to be repeated a few times to remove all of the stuff from the ridged non-reflective screen.
