How to Clean the Screen on a Sanyo LCD TV

By Traci Joy

LCD stands for "Liquid Crystal Diodes," and it is this liquid crystal diode technology that gives LCD TVs such a bright, clear display. The liquid crystals are protected only by soft plastic, so when you go to clean the screen you need to be extremely careful. There are many manufactured LCD screen cleaners on the market, but you can make your own effective cleaner with products you may have at home.

Things You'll Need

  • Distilled water
  • White vinegar
  • Clean spray bottle
  • White, lint free microfiber cloth

Step 1

Turn off your Sanyo LCD TV.

Step 2

Put one cup of distilled water and one cup of white vinegar in the clean spray or mister bottle. Make sure the bottle is tightly capped.

Step 3

Shake the bottle gently to mix the distilled water and white vinegar.

Step 4

Spray the water and vinegar mix onto the soft microfiber cloth.

Step 5

Wipe the LCD screen with the moistened cloth. Wipe from top to bottom or from right to left. Wiping in lines, as opposed to circles, will clean the screen more effectively.

Step 6

Allow the Sanyo LCD screen to dry before turning your television back on.

Tips & Warnings

  • For debris that may be hardened on the screen, you can make the cloth wetter, and hold the moist cloth directly on the debris for one to two minutes. Do not apply too much pressure, but when you remove the cloth, gently rub to release the debris.
  • Never spray cleaner or water directly onto the Sanyo LCD TV screen.
  • Do not use harsh paper towels or stiff fabric as they can damage the screen..
