And be sure not to clean the display using a cloth dampened with volatile solvents, such as benzene or

control. They can also cause paint to come off these sections.
Cleaning the cabinet and remote control
Use a soft cloth for cleaning.
If the cabinet or remote control is heavily stained, soak a soft cloth in a mixture of water and detergent
and squeeze it dry before wiping off the stains. Use a soft, dry cloth for final cleaning.
Cleaning the screen
Clean the screen gently with a soft cloth.
The screen surface is fragile. Never attempt to clean it with a hard material. Press on it forcefully, or tap
it.
