Hisense TVs are made to last. They last longer with cleaning and regular maintenance, but the technology we have so far, as good as it is, only lasts so long.

Modern televisions have a life cycle of about 65000 hours. And it quickly ticks by when they are left on, even on standby, they get hot and need ventilation to cool internal parts.

And that is why keeping the dust out of the vents is important.

Here’s why regular maintenance and cleaning is essential:

  • It keeps the screen’s anti-glare coating clear.
  • It helps remove oily films and fingerprints.
  • It lowers the risk of repairs and replacement.
  • It ensures optimal brightness and contrast.
  • It keeps the TV responsive to the remote control.
Fact: Housekeeping experts recommend cleaning the TV once a week to keep the dust manageable.

When you want to learn how to clean a Hisense TV screen, the first step is to prioritize safety. Be sure to switch off your Hisense TV.

Here’s what to do:

  1. Turn off the TV.
  2. Wait 30 seconds for the TV to power down.
  3. Just remove the plug from the power socket.
  4. Stow it carefully.
An Important Consideration

Although it is perfectly safe to use a damp cloth on the screen of a Hisense TV, when you use water around anything electric, there is always an element of risk.

The TV is safer unplugged, and your only remaining safety risks are tripping on the cable or standing on the plug.   

Step #2: Dusting the Screen

In the past, TVs were notorious for attracting dust because they carried an electrical charge. You could feel it if you brushed your hand across the screen.

Modern TV screens still have a charge but are not nearly so dramatic. Still, the dust appears whether you use a Smart TV.

Here’s how to dust the screen, starting at the top and working down.

  1. Use a microfiber cloth folded into quarters to fit your hand.
  2. Starting from the edge furthest away, draw the cloth straight towards you.
  3. Re-fold the cloth, putting the used quarter on the inside, and sweep a second line.
  4. Repeat line by line down the screen.
  5. Finally, wipe around the outside edge and use the edge of the cloth to get into the corners. 

Step #3: Removing Stubborn Stains

Light stains are simple, and you do not waste much time cleaning them. For instance:

  • Use a damp microfiber cloth.
  • Get a cleaning solution made with distilled water.
  • Wipe, then buff with a dry cloth.

Only distilled water should ever be used to clean TV and monitor screens. Distilled water is boiled to remove its minerals, producing pure H2O.

That is why manufacturers recommend using distilled water in steam irons. It leaves nothing to clog holes – or scratch screens.

The smears and streaks cause frustration, but here is how to deal with them.

  1. Prepare a solution of 2 parts isopropyl to 1 part water.
  2. Pour into the spray bottle.
  3. Take a clean microfiber cloth and fold it into quarters.
  4. Ensure you do not oversoak the cloth.
  5. Spray a mist of the solution onto one side of the cloth.
  6. Wipe the screen horizontally for dry dusting, top to bottom.
  7. Repeat but move over the screen vertically.
  8. Finally, lightly buff to shine with a dry microfiber.
Fact: Tap water is not pure enough and leaves solids behind that are difficult to remove when they dry. 

Step #4: Dealing with Grease and Smudges

Dealing with grease and smudges may seem difficult, but it is not.

There is no need to apply pressure that could damage the delicate glass even though layers of plastic protect it.

Also, there is no need to scrub the screen’s surface, damaging the outer anti-glare coating.

However, grease and smudges are especially stubborn and tend to spread thinner rather than lifting off a surface. 

The Right Way to Clean Grease

Isopropyl is very versatile and easily available at any drugstore. It cleans and disinfects many things, from body parts to tech, shoes, and windshields.

As a solvent, it will start to evaporate as soon as it is applied, so it must work methodically and quickly.

Here’s what you should take care of when cleaning using isopropyl.

  • Isopropyl is considered safe for at-home use but is still an acid, hence the gloves and glasses.
  • Always store away from children, pets, and direct sunlight.
  • Isopropyl is a chemical, ((CH3)2CHOH), a flammable solvent. Use in a well-ventilated area well away from naked flames.
Fact: Among its many useful properties, such as being an antiseptic, isopropyl is a mild degreaser, ideal for screens. 

Step #5: Clean the TV Frame and Vents

Before you begin, disconnect and stow any remaining cables and position the TV for safe access.

To clean the vents.

  1. Use a dry microfiber cloth.
  2. Wipe across the vents.
  3. Lightly mist a clean cloth to just barely moist.
  4. Gently wipe between and across the vents.
  5. Dry the area with a clean cloth.

To clean the frame.

  1. Use a cloth damp with a generous spray of solution.
  2. Take care not to touch the screen, clean the frame.
  3. Then clean the back of the TV in manageable sections working high to low.
  4. Clean the feet and the cables.
Fact: Throughout the cleaning take care not to let any liquid into the vents, and always spray onto the cloth, never onto the TV. 

Step #6: Drying the Screen

Isopropyl solutions evaporate fast, but it takes a few minutes for the screen to be completely dry. 

However, it is best not to immediately reconnect the power to any device you’ve cleaned. No matter how well you dry, there will be microscopic droplets left.

They will evaporate in due course but at different rates depending on their location.

It means there could be pockets of solution on the underside of the cable, the cooler metal pins of the plug, or trapped between the edge of the frame and the screen.

Here’s how you can expedite the drying process:

  • Blow warm air from the hair dryer over it.
  • Increase the room’s ambient temperature.
  • Position the television to take advantage of the heat produced by sunlight.
  • Use a cotton bud to get trapped moisture. 


Learning how to clean Hisense TV screen is not tricky. It may initially sound difficult, but it comes easy once you get used to it.

Just remember you should never resort to using harsh chemicals, especially ammonia. Also, NO abrasive cleaners ever, no matter what the stain is.

These scratch and pit the screen’s special surface coating beyond repair. So, be gentle!
