    1. Review your owner's manual. It should give you the best instruction for your set.

    2. Use only a microfiber or 100% cotton cloth. Do not use wood-based products such as paper towels or toilet paper, they could scratch the screen.

    3. Do not use ammonia-based cleaners such as Windex, 409 or others. The could damage the anti-reflective coating on the glass.

    4. Try first wiping it dry with the cotton or microfiber cloth.

    5. If the problem persists, use a damp (water-only) cloth to clean it.

    6. Some manufacturers recommend using mild soap, but do not do this unless your manufacturer recommends it.

    Cleaning the Plasma TV ScreenFirst off: read the plasma TV manual! You'll want to buy plasma television cleaners that are safe and reliable for your plasma television. Don't buy cleaning fluids and kits just because they're labeled that way.

    Check the fineprint and find out what these cleaning materials are made of. A good rule is to stay away from ammonia-based solutions and paper-based cloths. These materials can easily damage the special coating of your plasma screen. Instead, go for microfiber cloths and water or isopropyl alcohol (if you haven't found a trustworthy Plasma TV cleaning fluid). Some experts advise against using any type of cleaning fluid altogether, but, again, this is all dependent on what your own plasma television requires.

    You can start cleaning your plasma television by using a dry microfiber cloth to remove the larger dust particles. Next, if you feel your plasma screen still needs further cleaning, apply the cleaning fluid to the cleaning cloth and then wipe the screen. Remember never to spray any fluid directly to the plasma display.

    If you think you need to take a look inside your plasma television, it is wiser to get a professional to do it.

    Protecting the Plasma TV ScreenAside from cleaning your plasma television regularly, there are several other things you should remember to make your screen last longer.

    Your plasma television unit should be an ideal place: an area away from lots of dust, fingerprints, moisture, heat, and accidents. Dirt is one of the reasons the images on your plasma TV no longer look as good as before.

    When mounting your plasma TV unit right against a wall, or installing it in an enclosed area, make sure there's enough extra room for air circulation. Just like other electronic appliances, a plasma television will wear out more quickly when it's working at a higher temeprature. Cooling fans similar to ones found in your computer's CPU can help keep the plasma television's temperature as low as possible.

    Brightness levels and static images displayed for a long time also age your plasma television more quickly. Make sure your settings for brightness and contrast are configured properly to avoid quickly damaging the phosphor inside the display.

    Static images cause the damage of pixels, called burn-ins. These pixels have gotten old too quickly and thus glow less brightly than other normal pixels. Avoid blue screens, paused screens, and too much black or gray bars (usually from unproportional, non-widescreen movies) to make your plasma television live longer.

    I find that any cleaning solution made for eye glasses with anti reflective coatings is gentle enough for plasma screens. I've used this on my Toshiba P25 laptop screen for nearly 5 years. Just remember to spray the cleaner on the rag, not directly on the screen. This is to avoid getting the moisture into the keyboard or other electronic parts where it could short out your system.
