Hello!!! I was wondering what do you guys use for cleaning a LED-LCD screen. I have the Monster LCD cleaning solution(comes in a blue bottom). But I have streaks left over. How can I prevent this or is there a different type of cleaner I should use?

First some words of caution , Some screens have anti glare coatings that can be damaged by alcohol based or any liquid cleaners .
DO NOT  spray screen and allow water or whatever you use.  to drip into the bottom or the sides of the panel if moisture gets in there it can corrode the ribbon cable bonded connector tabs  at the panel end ruining the panel and turning  your set  into a useless brick ! , (symptoms usually don't show up right away.)  

I occasionally use distilled water with a moistened microfiber cleaning cloth .

I usually just use a dry microfiber dusting cloth.and dust it gently. Occasionally If I use distilled water only (my preference) I spray the cloth (microfiber cleaning cloth) not the screen and clean it gently...PC monitors get the same treatment. Baby diapers work good also (clean ones of course) biggrin.gif
There are some that say a few drops of dish washing soap without oil
the Dove brand and distilled or filtered water works well I have done that on PC monitors with a moistened cloth and it worked fine .


I also don't use Monster products I wouldn't trust them that's probably your streaking issue. I can only Imagine how many otherwise good panels have been ruined by housekeepers with a Windex sprayer .

OTOH your owners manual may have some good advise.

Good advice as is using the search box at the top of the page. There have been hundreds of threads and thousands of posts about screen cleaning, and they all tend to say the same thing:

You bought Monster cleaner? You wasted your money. Use a micro fiber cloth and a drop of water if needed
