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.
