    Hello all,

    I need some help with my Sony DSC-W300 camera, a few weeks ago somehow it managed to get oily type stains on its LCD screen and I have been unable to remove them. I have used microfiber cloth, normal cloth, wiping it for 20mins non-stop to remove it without much luck.

    Its bugging me so much, does anyone know how to remove them? I'd appreciate any tips!

    Kind regards,

    M

    Lens cleaner would be something to try with the microfiber.

    Don't be rubbing it for 20 minutes, usually a quick wipe should do the trick. Make sure you have the right stuff.

    Try leaving a soft piece of tissue paper over the oil stain for a couple of minutes. Do not rub the LCD with it. The tissue paper may scratch your LCD as it comes from wood fibers. However, tissue paper is good in absorbing oil stains. Next, spray a little plasma TV cleaning liquid onto a piece of microfiber cloth & wipe your LCD with it. A plasma TV screen is made of a similar material to your LCD. So in a sense it's quite safe to use the cleaning fluid on your LCD.
