This is my first post here at the home theater forum, I do read alot here, so I know there are alot of experienced guys out there that might help me out. My question is what do you guys use to clean their protective screens on there RPTV's ? The owners manual says to use a clean soft cloth, but anyone who has a dog can attest that sometimes a clean soft cloth just doesn't do the job.

Protective screens are pretty resistant (which is why they're "protective") to problems. I use either Windex or Endust for electronic gear which I spray onto a clean, white cotton towel and use the towel to clean the screen. I never spray onto the screen itself as I don't want anything getting around it onto the main screen.

Thanks for the reply Steve, just get alittle nervous when you spend thousands of dollars and the manual just says a clean cloth, I thought maybe cleaning solutions may leave oil on the screen. I have used windex, exactly as you describe, but I now feel better that other people are doing the same...once again thank you.

Dang it, can't find the can right now, but go to your local automotive parts store and find some stuff that says it is safe for plexiglass. Windex has ammonia in it, which I don't feel is good for it. To be perfectly honest, I really don't know which is better, but I use the stuff which is safe for plexiglass. hth.
