Learn how to properly clean your LED TV to make it look great and avoid causing damage.
Unlike the old tube TVs of the past LED TVs need to be properly cleaned. If you clean them incorrectly you run the risk of causing damage to the sensitive screen. This article will describe the correct cleaning process. Using these tips you’ll safely clean your screen of debris, dust, and smudges.
What you’ll need:
- A soft microfiber cloth. You can pick these up at any electronics store. Even Wal-Mart has them. And once you have one you’ll be able to use it for years. I recommend you get on that is specifically labeled for television screen use.
- Screen cleaning fluid. Many different companies make screen cleaning fluid. The one I use is Monster ScreenClean. I purchased a bottle six years ago and still have not used all of it. It lasts for a long time. But there are cheaper cleaners that should work just as well. Just make sure that the cleaning fluid you use is specifically labeled for tv screen use. And I would avoid dollar store cleaning fluid.
- Don’t use paper towels or rough cloths. Use only cloths made specifically for cleaning monitors and tv screens. Rougher cloths run the risk of scratching your screen.
- Don’t use water.
- NEVER use cleaning fluids or waxes that are not meant to tv screens. They contain chemicals that can damage the fragile surface of the screen. This includes chemicals like Windex. Just don’t use them.
- Turn off your tv screen.
- Unplug the screen from power.
- Spray a little screen-cleaner onto your cloth and very gently rub the areas of the screen that you wish to clean. Avoid spraying the screen.
- The frame of the screen has a specially coated material that is easy to clean. You can simply gently wipe it with a dry microfiber cloth.
- Wait about a minute or two for the screen to dry.
- Plug in the tv screen.
And enjoy your new clean tv!
