Washing screen of PRS-505 Sony Reader

Hi, how do you wash your screen on the PRS-505? I accidentially pressed my finger on it, and used a 100% microfiber cloth to circular rub the surface gently, no water. The cloth came from my monster cleaning solution package to clean my LCD monitor.

If a nasty dirt mark comes on it, any suggestions? Sony's support section didn't seem to have any word on that.

What I do is use a little water (not mch at all) to get the dirt off and then use a microfiber cloth to dry/clean the screen. Works quite well for me. Also, you can use the cleaning solution used to clean your glasses.

Great advice, if the need arises I'll try that. Sony said any liquids would destroy the surface. Not sure how to react to that one.

I use a dry microfibre cloth for dust on the screen and a slightly damp one to remove fingerprints etc. this has worked well for the 9 months that I've had the Reader.

A couple of times I used the same kit as I used to clean my computer monitor (LCD).
I wonder whether I have been wrong?

The Reader's screen is a hard plastic - any non-corrosive, non-abrasive cleaner should work fine. I use a micro-fibre cloth to remove fingerprints (the same one I use to clean my glasses), and a warm damp cloth with a bit of washing-up liquid to get rid of the occasional more serious dirt.

I use the "mom" method, you know moisten your finger with spit and wipe vigorously.

For dusting, I go with that canned air stuff. Lots of fun to play with, that stuff is. Unfortunately, they won't let me order it at work any more ... the test-tube incident caused that, I think.

Do you do that while scolding it sternly and call it by it's full name - the way my mom would have? Maybe with a good tug on the ear to boot. I remember wishing I could run away and scrub myself just to avoid the experience.

No, I haven't tried those nuances ... maybe that's why it never struggles and groans: "Maa-uuum!"

Actually, I use windex. I wipe it, scrubbing hard. Then I put some grease cleaner on it to be sure. I toss is in the washer after that. I know I'm getting a good clean then. I slide it in my tray in the kitchen, let it air dry. If they're open, I drop it off at the dry cleaners. Usually they get it right, but occasionally they lose an IC chip or pixel. That's okay. Last time, when they lost an IC chip, all the profanity in my ebooks dissappeared. So that's okay.

Sony said you woulden't believe the calls they get....

Sadly, I probably would. I've worked Tech-Support lines, you see. It's a wonder some folks out there can dress themselves without suffering a fatal mischief.

I have that same package. Why don't you wet the cloth with the solution? Worked great on mine.

just use cheap generic microfiber cloth and a bit of saliva. Works wonders.
I have been using this method for quite a time without any adverse efects on the reader.
