    I'm not sure the best way to go about cleaning it up. It has a huge smudge streak caused by people touching on it. I've tried paper towels with a little water but it doesn't do anything.

    Any advice?

    I was hoping there would be a home remedy for it :dunno: I guess I'll have to invest in something like that.

    If anyone else has any other suggestions, bring them on.

    + a little warm water

    maybe some mild soap if the screen is bad. however, the cloth has to be very very lightly damp

    LCD's are actually pretty tough (newer models)
    dont be afraid of touching it with some pressure (dont go phyco on it or ne thing)

    I would probably steer clear of using paper towels in the future. Just seems like they might scratch the screen.
