    I need to clean the screen of my Panasonic 47WX49 RPTV and was wondering what is best to use.

    I had some work done a while back on it and the technician installed a free protective screen. I recently noticed dirt in between the protective screen and the regular ones.

    I had already taken it apart and cleaned it once using a soft cloth but I noticed more dirt after closing it back up.

    Is there anything that is made for this type of screen? I don't want to scratch it but the clothe didn't seem to do the job.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I am in a similar situation with the same model TV. I talked to a local HiFi shop, and the person said just a damp cloth would work, but be gentle. And he offered the suggestion of a softhead toothbrush lightly on hte screen to get in the grooves. I still am scared to do anything to this screen.

    Best Buy sells a little kit for RPTV cleaning... should be right out back in the home-theater/big tv section.

    I think it's by Monster... and it runs $20.

    The kit that BB sells is a microfiber, the one from Monster. It is very good as I have been using it for about two years. The static free spray won't help you too much in your situation but is really good as well. Always use a microfiber!! Don't break out your I don't care how soft it is dish towel!!! Use microfiber!
