My granddaughter colored the big screen tv with washable markers. The front of the tv isn't glass, but of a film. What is the best way to remove the markers without damaging the screen?

    Go to the makers website, or your booklet, to look for an answer or list your question there. FYI, I clean mine with window cleaner once a week spraying on a microfiber towel, not the tv, wiping gently and have had no issues. My tv's are at least 5 years old and also have the plastic film.

    soft micro fiber wash cloth. try it dry first, if no joy..barely damp.

    Here's an article on how to clean a flat screen, and in several articles they mentioned running a dry eraser across as you don't want to put down on the screen.... go to Dollar Tree and buy a clean eraser an see if it will come off..... https://sheriscleaning.wordpress.com/2014/07/08/how-to-properly-clean-a-flat-screen-tv-or-computer-monitor/

    Several have also mentioned the magic eraser, but again don't press down.

    Also several mentioned using a microfiber cloth.
