Clean Your LED or LCD Monitor Screen

With normal use over time, electronic devices like your monitor can get dusty. Taking a few minutes to clean the screen makes the monitor look new. Follow the instructions below to properly clean your LED or LCD monitor.

General Cleaning for the LED or LCD Monitor

Never use any type of window cleaner, soap, scouring powder, or any cleanser with solvents such as alcohol, benzene, ammonia, or paint thinner. Never use abrasive pads or paper towels, as they can scratch the screen or strip the anti-glare coating off the screen and cause permanent damage.

    For general cleaning of both the frame and screen of your LED or LCD monitor, use a microfiber cleaning cloth and water. Do not spray water directly onto the monitor, but apply a small amount of water on the corner of the microfiber cloth. Never use cleaning fluids, wax, or chemicals. 

    Follow these steps to clean your monitor properly:

    Turn the LED or LCD monitor off, let it cool for a few minutes, and then unplug the monitor. Clean your monitor's frame with a microfiber cleaning cloth, and then gently wipe the screen as well. You can also spray water directly onto the cloth, and then gently wipe the screen again.

    Note: Wipe the screen as gently as possible. LED and LCD monitor screens are fragile and can be damaged if you press too hard.

    Let the screen dry completely before you plug the monitor back in.
