How to Clean a Panasonic Flat Screen TV

Updated February 21, 2017

Panasonic offers a wide variety of consumer electronics that you can enjoy in your home. For example, you can purchase a Panasonic flat screen TV for you and your family to enjoy. Once you have your flat screen TV, you should learn how to properly clean and care for it. This will ensure that your TV continues to perform at optimal levels for as long as possible. Regular cleaning extends the life of electronics, and it can help protect your family against the harmful allergens found in dust build-up.

Use a soft, dry towel to clean the screen and the monitor of your Panasonic flat screen TV. If necessary, you can dampen the cloth with a small amount of water to clean the screen, but not the monitor. Unplug the TV from the power source before cleaning it with water or any other liquid.

Create a cleaning solution of water and a small amount of mild detergent, such as dishwashing soap, in a bucket. Mild detergents can still vary in strength, so use the ratio recommended on the bottle, which is usually about two tablespoons for every 946ml of water. Never use cleaners that contain benzene, which is a flammable substance sometimes included in stronger cleaners that can damage the screen's picture.

Dip your cloth into the cleaning solution and wring it out thoroughly. Be sure it's not dripping at all.

Clean the rest of your unit with the damp cloth. Be careful not to get the cleaning solution on the monitor.

Use a clean soft cloth to thoroughly dry your entire Panasonic flat screen TV. Make sure it's completely dry before plugging it back into the power source.
