How to Clean a Sony LCD TV Screen

Updated February 21, 2017

As with any television set, the screen on a Sony LCD TV can get cluttered with dust and dirt after some time. Cleaning your LCD TV screen with a wet towel or a washcloth, though, could ruin the television screen beyond repair. Fortunately, there are cleaning kits made specifically for items like a Sony LCD TV. These kits allow you to safely and thoroughly clean the screen of your Sony LCD TV.

Begin by purchasing a cleaning kit for your LCD TV. These kits contain a dust brush, cloth and liquid LCD TV screen cleaner and can be purchased wherever you can buy LCD TVs. You can also buy these kits online.

Turn your TV off and let it rest for 15 minutes. Doing so will cool the screen down, making the screen safe to clean.

Use the dust brush found in the cleaning kit to wipe away any dust and dirt that you can see on the TV screen. When doing this, use the same amount of force as if you were dusting a lampshade. Don't try to get any dirt particles that are embedded on the LCD TV screen off with the dust brush, as you'll be wiping off the screen later.

Fold the cloth that came in the LCD TV cleaning kit in half.

Spray one half of the cloth with the cleaning spray. The cloth should be damp but not dripping wet.

Wipe off the entire screen of the Sony LCD TV with the damp cloth. You should wipe gently so that you don't crack the screen. It's OK to use a little bit of force, though, wherever there is dirt stuck on the screen.

Use the dry portion of the cloth to remove any excess moisture from the screen. Wipe the screen with the dry cloth in the same manner you did in the previous step.

Stand back and examine the LCD TV screen. Look for any dust or dirt. Repeat the process if necessary.
