Chuck I could hug you right now. I wound up cleaning it with water and alcohol wipes. It was a slow process but I got it all cleaned up. Used a microfiber towel (same thing I use on my car) so as not to scratch the lens.I wasn't tempted to clean anything else in the tv as if it isn't broke I didn't want to fix it.Thanks for turning a full on panic into an incredible success.
