Follow these simple maintenance tips to keep your displays in great condition.  By using these tips you can make sure your LCD and OLED displays work at their full potential. Everything we produce is held to 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

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

Use microfiber when cleaning your display

Even though paper towels are convenient and feel soft to the touch, the small paper fibers they’re made from can easily scratch a glass display. Continuous use of paper towels on your glass display will cause visible scratching and damage over time. This simple tip will keep your screens and cover glass scratch-free.

Tip 3.

Never apply liquid directly to your screen

Never apply liquid directly to your screen
Spraying or dropping liquid directly on a display will put you at risk of liquid damage inside your application. There are many small openings on electronics that liquid can easily enter, causing irreparable damage over time. If necessary, apply cleaning solvent to your microfiber cloth then wipe your screen clean. Most of the time a dry microfiber cloth will be sufficient.

Tip 4

Use compressed air to remove debris from your display

Use compressed air to remove debris from your display

Instead of trying to disassemble your display or pick out small pieces of debris, use compressed air to remove the anything stuck inside your device. This tip reduces the risk of damage and eliminates the need for disassembling and re-assembling the device.

Tip 5.

Safely remove residue from soldering on PCB

When cleaning your PCB or removing residue 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 you’re cleaning.
