    Hi Guys,

    My friend has a little situation you may be able to help with. He cleaned his PW7 screen with furniture polish and a duster :eek: .

    Apparently the picture seems alright when it's on, but when it's off the screen is covered with smears, etc, which seem impossible to remove.

    Any ideas on how to get rid of them? I suggested getting some of those monitor wipes from PC world, but would they do the trick?

    Any advice appreciated... ;)

    :laugh: Nah, it's not me. I thought it probably sounds like 'my friend' is me :rolleyes: , but I'm waiting till I get some lint free cloths to clean my screen. Until then I just dust it slightly, and very very gently...

    I've tried, but all I can find is ways to clean a Plasma, not ways to remove possible smearing / damage from furniture polish :confused:

    Boiling water should get the polish off.

    Try using some lemon juice or vinegar - great for getting my son's greasy fingerprints off glass - then a damp cloth and a final polish with lint free before the dampness dries

    Cheers

    Af screen clene from pc world. Will protect the anti glare coating on the screen and leave an anti static film so less cleaning willl be needed.
