anything abrasive- do not use household cleaners). Wipe the front screen with a clean cloth dampened with water. Use
even, easy, vertical strokes when cleaning•
• Specially designed screen cleaning kits are also available which contain anti-static cleaners and cloths designed to get
into the ridges of the TV screen• If interested, ask your dealer about an optional Projection TV Screen Cleaning Kit or
call our toll-free Accessory Parts ordering number 1-800-851-8885.
• Gently wipe the cabinet surfaces with a clean cloth or sponge dampened in a solution of cool clear water and a mild soap
or detergent. Use a clean dry cloth to dry the wiped surfaces.
• Occasionally vacuum the ventilation holes or slots in the cabinet back.
• Never use thinners, insecticide sprays, or other chemicals on or near the cabinet, as they might cause permanent marring
of the cabinet finish•
