How to Clean Projection TV Screens


Having a clean TV is essential to ensure the best picture possible. A rear-projection TV is especially affected by a dirty or dusty screen, and unfortunately it can be difficult to clean. But if your TV has a smooth screen shield, you can clean it with ease.

Things You'll Need

  • 3 soft cloths
  • Mild dish soap
  • Wet your first cloth and wring out all excess water.

  • Remove dust by wiping the damp cloth across the surface of the TV screen, using light pressure.

  • Wet the second cloth with water and a small amount of the soap. Wring out all excess water.

  • Wipe the screen a second time, using light pressure. In areas where there is more dirt buildup, several swipes may be needed, but do not increase pressure.

  • Wipe the TV the third time with the last dry, soft cloth, using a circular motion and light pressure.

Tips & Warnings

  • Using a plain dish soap without lotions or softeners will yield the best results. For very dirty screens, repeat steps 3 and 4 as needed before moving on to step 5. Soft, clean T-shirts with no print or embroidery can be used as a substitute for soft cloths.
  • If your projection TV does not have a screen shield, you cannot use soap and water to clean the screen. Buy a specific cleaning kit from an electronic store and be sure to consult the manual.
