how to clean a u2312hm?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
yesterday i cleaned my u2312hm with some wipes(one's without alcohol) and instead of cleaning they seem to just leave a thin layer of idk what on the screen. after the bad results from the wipes, i used a specail lcd cleaner and a micro-fabric towel, and still, that annoying layer is still there.
what should i do? and did i just destroy my monitor like a retard using wipes?

I normally sprinkle some water on the screen and clean it of with toilet paper, it works very good.

I have bad experience with special LCD cleaners aswell....

Yeah, water (distilled/deionized is especially useful if you have access) is generally the safest way to go. I tried some solution from staples and it left a streaked film of some kind of anti-dust/finger print solution behind. Water took the film off for me.

Water with a microfiber towel is all you need. Wipe in one direction lightly and slow. Make sure there are no hard substances caught in the towel before you start wiping the monitor screen clean.

It seems there is indeed some kind of alcohol-soluble coating on it, very weird.

 

Normally I clean my monitors with isopropanol (2-propanol), which has worked very well on my other monitors. But with the Dell U2312HM it seems to leave a layer behind...

I use a spray my Mom bought for her Ipad, it works very well (with microfiber cloth). However this thread prompted me to look at it closer, and I just realized it's made by Monstercable.com biggrin.gif

Anyway, its contents says this: "de-ionized water, proprietary polymers". So I guess it doesn't have alchohol in it, which is why I don't have problems with it on my 2312hm

I doubt it... Paper is made of rough fibers that can scratch your screen. On most screens it won't be a problem (I think) but as we see here the AG coating on this screen is just very vulnerable.

Indeed, I don't think that would be a problem.

 

However, most commercial LCD-cleaning sprays just have 2-propanol in them (along with some other additives), don't use that!
