Clean Your TV Screen and Cabinet

Applicable Products and Categories of This Article

Unplug the TV from the electrical outlet before you clean the screen. Clean the LCD screen with a soft, dry cloth. For more stubborn stains, you can use a soft cloth slightly dampened with a solution of mild soap and warm water. When you clean the screen, wipe it in small circular motions from top to bottom. Immediately afterwards, use a soft cloth to dry the screen.

Note: Clean the cabinet using a lightly-damp cloth. Wipe speaker grills only with a soft, dry cloth.

WARNING!

  • There's a risk of hardware damage. Don't press hard on the LCD screen during cleaning. Doing so may cause scratches on anti-reflective coating.
