I have a Panasonic TH-PWD6. My son sprayed 'bathroom freshener' spray on the screen and I now have 500 tiny mist spots that won't go away. The spray is not your regular 'windex' type stuff, but it says on the bottle that it contains "pure vanilla bean in grain alcohol/water solution".


I've read about Invisible Glass but only in relation to Pioneer screens - can I use it for a Panny, and for this type of thing?


Thanks

The antireflective coating is probably damaged. Just use distilled water and clean microfiber cloth to clean it. If that does not work, nothing will.


You probably would not notice the tiny spots during regular viewing of the tv.

I don't know what "invisible glass" is.


I would mix maybe four parts of mild liquid detergent to 100 parts distilled water in a bowl, and soak a soft microfiber cloth in the solution, wring it out thoroughly, then gently clean the screen. Do this when the TV is off and is stone-cold.


I think (but i'm not sure) that the older Pro monitors had the anti-reflective coating applied to the inside of the outer glass and if so, then the coating has not been compromised. Get more info though, i don't know where i read or heard about this cause it was a long time ago.

Are you beyond the 30-day return window on the kid, and is there a restocking fee?

Well the general chemistry theory is that like dissolves like. Water is polar and the chemicals in the glass cleaner that left a residue might be non-polar. Therefore, try a non-polar solvent like an oil. If I were you I would try a pure oil, maybe a little bit of virgin oil to see if that dissolves the residue.

Prozak - thanks for the suggestion!

I tried it on 1 tiny spot and it took it out so at first it seemed to work. Then I tried it on a few concentrated areas with many tiny spots and it made no difference - not sure why.

Well there might be a couple of reasons. One is that the coating might be porous and the speck you took off was closer to the surface than the others. A second reason is that solvents don't always work instantly, you may want to put the oil on and give it half a minute or so to do its thing. The only issue of course is that we don't know how the oil may affect the screen, it may do nothing at all or if the screen is porous it may leave a residue although plain water may help push it out. It's up to you how much you want to experiment.


By the way always use distilled water, two water has minerals in it that can leave a residue.


Definitely let us know hoe it goes.
