GEEK SQUEAKS – Featuring Steps To Clean Your Flat Panel Monitor (and other screen devices)

April 6, 2014


[
FEATURED GEEK SQUEAK] – How To Clean Your Flat Panel Monitor – Most of the time when we decide to clean the monitor it is at a time when we are not really prepared to do it.  We’re sitting there and it is something obvious (like a smudge, a fingerprint, a bug etc.) that catches our attention and motivates us to to perform a cleaning. Ant

As a result of this, we end up using glass cleaner and paper towels, which is a big “NO, NO”…  Paper towels or any paper product for that matter contains micro-particles that can scratch the monitor; AND glass cleaners contain chemicals (such as ammonia, alcohol and phosphates) that can damage the optical coating.

5 Step Process:

  1. Turn “OFF” the monitor (actually turn “off” everything including the computer, etc. OR better yet unplug the monitor from its’ power source).
  2. If available, use a can of compressed air to remove any dust particles.  Believe it or not, dust particles can causing scratches.
  3. Use a lint free (microfiber) soft cloth, similar to what you use to clean eyeglasses with, to remove dust particles.
  4. If necessary dampen the cloth with “water” (recommend 50/50 distilled water and vinegar mix), and gently wipe the screen off.  Do Not use commercial cleaners, as they contain damaging chemicals; and, again do not use paper towels or tissues (can scratch the screen).
  5. Post a sign, “Touch my screen and you’re a goner!”  For some reason, some people have to be all “touchy feely” with monitors.  Flat panel screens are not designed to be touched (unless it is a touch screen monitor, tablet, smartphone, etc…).

    NOTE:
      These same steps can be used to clean devices that are designed to be touched (such as smartphones, tablets, touch screen monitors, etc…)

If your flat panel monitor is really dirty, there are commercial LCD, LED, Plasman monitor cleaning solutions and micro-fiber cloths available at most office supply stores.
