Alcohol does attack some plastics, so I'd be pretty cautious about using it on your screens. Also, you don't want anything running down and going behind the bezel, that's frequently bad news!
Would you recommend mixing a solution of half water and half distilled vinegar as a cheaper solution?Alcohol does attack some plastics, so I'd be pretty cautious about using it on your screens. Also, you don't want anything running down and going behind the bezel, that's frequently bad news!
Yep, I am using water right now too but it seems some spots do not wash off so I'm thinking vinegar might work if I make a diluted vinegar solution, but if you advise against it completely I will just live with it I guess haha.Actually, I stay away from anything acidic, vinegar will corrode things if it gets behind the screen. Like I said, I use plain water on a soft cloth. You aren't doing your dirty laundry here, you're just cleaning off presumably mild contamination from your LCD screen.
Thank you! I don't think it's worth the risk then, the stain is only visible under direct light. In general is it safe to ignore these stains on LCD screens and don't cause any damage long term?Whatever you use, make sure it doesn't get behind the bezel! Vinegar won't hurt the plastic, but if it runs behind and gets on the LCD contacts, all gets are off!
I see, I remember LCD seems to only move if I apply the same pressure again. It's back in normal position right now.Yep. If the bezel were too tight against the plastic LCD, it would create an indentation all the way around the screen.
Hi again one last thing I'd like to ask again is if it's generally ok to have some dust and streaks left on my laptop after cleaning.Ummm, I'm not sure. Wouldn't that interrupt your race toward greying hair and wrinkles?
I use a micro fiber cloth dunked in warm water and squeezed out until as dry as possible Make sure you system is turned off and unplugged and use gentle rubbing motion to clean and dry your screen and key boards, I have been doing this for years with out a problemHi all,
I was using a wet microfiber cloth to wipe off some grime that wouldn't get off with a simple dusting, and was a bit worried about water damage.
The screen got wet but quickly dried in a few seconds. Is it bad to let water evaporate on the screen? The water wasn't dripping or anything.
Can anyone give a proper procedure to safely and efficiently wipe off grime from the screen?
I remember years ago a TV tech telling me that they had a unit bought to them that had died.You haven't had, or been around little kids and pets have you? How about things like peanut butter, cracker crumbs, snot and who knows what else, smeared all over everything. Yes, even on all electronic devices. And, they still somehow keep on keeping on.
