How to care the LCD TV.

Applicable Products and Categories of This Article

Preface (Be sure to observe the following)

In order to suppress reflection or to make an image legible, the LCD has a special surface treatment applied. Wrong treatment may cause damage to the TV, so observe the following precautions.

  • Before cleaning, be sure to unplug the power plug from the socket.
  • Since special processing is carried out on the liquid crystal screen, do not touch the screen as much as possible.
  • Do not apply detergent directly to the TV. The sprayed detergent may drips over the lower part of the screen or exterior part, and the TV may malfunction.
    Do not spray
  • Do not splash volatile liquid such as insecticide onto the TV or use solvents such as benzene, thinner, etc. The TV may deteriorate or its paint may peel off.
  • If you let the TV contact rubber or vinyl materials for a long time, the TV may deteriorate or its paint may peel off.
  • When using a commercially available chemical cloth or cleaning cloth, ask its sales company if you can use it for cleaning the LCD of TVs.
  • Do not use a commercial available LCD protective filter.


How to clean

  • Gently wipe the screen or dirt on the exterior (dust, skin oil of hands, etc.) with a dry, soft cloth, such as an eyeglass cleaner.
  • If ink from an oil marker gets on the screen, soak a cloth in synthetic detergent thinned with water and squeeze it tightly, then wipe the ink off with it. Lastly, softly wipe with a dry cloth. (The LCD surface will be damaged when rubbed strongly.)
  • When using a synthetic detergent, dilute it by less than 1%.
  • Do not use detergent with abrasives such as a cleanser.
  • The liquid crystal order may collapse by pressure when wiping the LCD and it may look like dirt. Turn off and on the power to recover this condition.
    Squeeze tightly
  • Wipe the printed surface such as CH +, CH -, or HDMI2 of the TV carefully with a soft dry cloth.
  • The printed surface may get damaged if scratched by your nails.
  • Since the distance between the television and stand (table top stand) is thin, your hand may get pinched. It is recommended to use a mop with a stick.
    Using a mop
  • Dust may adhere near the vent of the TV. Tenacious adhesion may become a cause of failure. It is recommended to vacuum dust with a vacuum cleaner once a month.
