Follow these simple maintenance tips to keep your displays in great condition.  All of our displays are designed to meet high quality standards, but there are also some tips you can follow to make sure you’re getting the most out of your display. Here are 5 easy tips from our engineering experts to help maintain your displays.

Check out these five essential maintenance tips for your LCD and OLED displays:

Tip 1.

Wear an antistatic device when working with the display

Antistatic devices reduce the buildup of static electricity that can damage components like your PCB. Antistatic devices come in the form of wristbands, shoes, floormats, and more. Keep this tip in mind to avoid accidental shocks and damage.

Tip 2.

Use microfiber when cleaning your display

Even though paper towels are convenient and feel soft to the touch, they are made from small paper fibers that can easily scratch a glass display. Using paper towels on your screens will cause visible scratching and damage over time.  A microfiber cloth will keep your screens clean and scratch-free.

Tip 3.

Never apply liquid directly to your screen

Spraying or dropping liquid directly on a display will put your display at risk for water damage. There are many small openings on electronics that liquid can easily enter, causing irreparable damage over time. Most of the time a dry microfiber cloth will do the trick. If it doesn’t, then apply cleaning solvent to your cloth and wipe your screen.

Tip 4

Use compressed air to remove debris from your display

Instead of trying to disassemble your display or using tools to reach inside, use compressed air to remove any debris stuck in your application. This tip reduces the risk of damage and eliminates the need for disassembling and re-assembling your device.

Tip 5.

Safely remove residue from soldering on PCB

When cleaning your PCB or removing residue left over from soldering, use a small cotton swab to gently remove debris. If necessarily, apply a small amount of rubbing alcohol to the cotton swab and dab it on the area of the PCB that you’re cleaning.
