Greasy fingerprints can ruin the view and appearance of your flat-screen TV. The sensitive screen requires gentle care to avoid dulling, discolouration and dead pixels. Household cleaners --- especially ammonia-based glass cleaners --- are not suitable for use on most flat-screen TVs, as they can damage the surface. Use gentle products to remove fingerprints and smudges, and restore the look of your flat-screen TV.
