    Hi people. I've had my PDP507 for almost a year and have always used the supplied micro fibre cloth to clean the screen and the surrounding finish. however have recently noticed that the black surround is getting very light scratches. i dont want this to get worse so can anyone recommend an alternative product i should use? my TV gets very dusty. thanks. :thumbsup:

    use an anti-static 'feather duster' if you just have dust.

    If your using the cloth you should make sure that it is clean, even small amounts of grit or anything like that on the cloth could cause scratches.

    thanks mate. the cloth is normally clean, i guess that amount of dust which is on it causes the light scratches. feather duster will probs be much better. thanks for the advice

    I use a very light feather duster to remove the dust and then use the following
    Calotherm Microfibre Optical Lens Cleaning Cloth &

    Solution 30 Lens cleaner, you can get both products from your local Opticians

    To clean and polish the glass and the surround.

    The above cleaning solution is very very soft

    BTW I don't spray the solution straight on the screen, only on to the cloth also make sure the screen glass is cold before applying.

    is there any way to remove fingerprints and grease from the bezel? i wouldn't mess around with the screen with the polishes though, as they could remove the protective/anti glare coating.

    I use 'Solution 30' opticians sell it and use it for cleaning glasses, it works really well. I also use to keep my iphone screen nice and clean.
