How Do You Clean a Plasma TV?

To clean a plasma television, turn off the device, and wipe the screen with a soft cloth. If this action fails to clean the screen, wet the cloth with a vinegar and water solution, and wipe the screen again. Clean the frame with all-purpose cleaner.

  1. Turn off the television

    Turn off the television so that any dirt or fingerprints show up better.

  2. Wipe the screen with a dry cloth

    Wipe the screen of the plasma television with a soft, dry cloth. Do not use paper towels, tissues or cotton fabric. To avoid scratches, use material similar to an eyeglass cloth. Do not push on the screen or scrub hard. Try using a dry eraser.

  3. Wipe the screen with a damp cloth

    If the screen is not completely clean, dampen the cloth with a mixture of an equal ratio of distilled water and white vinegar. Gently wipe the television screen again. Avoid using products that contain ammonia or harsh chemicals to maintain the screen's picture quality.

  4. Clean the frame

    Clean the frame of the television with a soft cloth and an all-purpose cleaner. Avoid contact with the screen itself. Spraying liquid directly on the screen can cause discoloration and damage to the surface.
