I recently saw in an advert for a tft flat screen that it had a transparent cover attached to the frame in front of the screen to keep dust and dirt off the screen and make cleaning easy.I cannot remember where I saw it unfortunately. It occurred to me that a thin piece of plexiglass or similar could be fastened to existing screen frames. I have checked my screen surface and it barely gets warm so does anybody have any views on the idea. Regards, Meshuga.
Hi dadyassa,thanks for your reply. I take your point about the amount of energy involved but the main intention is to avoid damage to the vulnerable surface when cleaning,especially fly dirt.Being disabled and living alone I welcome anything that helps to pass time away + I like experimenting. Regards, Emanuel.
Sounds a good idea Meshuga but why don't you use *proper* glass. Any of that other stuff will discolour over time.
Get you local bloke to cut some thin glass to the right size. You could then finish off the project by getting some small ally angle, nicly mitre the corners, glue to the glass and fit over the screen. Sounds good to me.
Hi, I don't think that I would be very happy covering my TFT screen with anything, I think it best to let air to it naturally and clean it gently with a damp cloth. I do this on a regular basis with no trouble at all.
Interesting idea, I too would think thin glass would be the thing to try but, unless the glass was virtually sealed to the TFT screen would dust not be able to get between the glass and the TFT screen? And I for one would not attempt anything which would permenently damage the TFT sure as glueing the glass on. Another thought and I suppose you wouldn't know till you tried it what about reflections? Both between the TFT screen and the glass and the glass and the room its in.
Hi TomJerry, sorry to contradict you but I have 2 TFT monitors and they don`t have glass fronts. that is the reason that the advice given for cleaning TFT`s is to take great care when cleaning them because the surface is soft and can be pressed in. There has been many postings in PCA and elsewhere to this effect. Many thanks for your response anyway. Meshuga.
