As though all TV manufacturers aligned to give seemingly similar precautionary guidelines on the treatment of each HDTV, the treatment of these Television screens is important, and every aspect should be taken into consideration.

These are the strict and likely sacrosanct perspectives of the makers of these TVs. Most owners’ manual is copied from the others. Take the fragile nature of the LCD screen; for instance, the front screen is totally different from the glass front of a plasma TV. Meanwhile, this does not mean that caution shouldn’t be taken.

The bottom line is that, when it’s about TV screens, they are expensive and delicate. Do not be tempted to mar their surface by employing cleaning methods that the manufacturing companies are not in support of or do not advise.
