    I have a ten year old 16" or 17" Sony Trinitron monitor with a dirty screen that I'm hoping to calibrate for black and white work. Will Coast bar soap and water safely remove the grime without destroying the coating? Or should I use something else? I spoke to Sony tech support using the online chat, but the person I chatting with was not familiar with the Trinitrons and was reading from the same online manuals/tutorials from the Sony website that I read before contacting them. So, I'm hoping for more informed advice from people who have cleaned Trinitrons in the past.

    Thanks, Mike.

    Be VERY careful, depending on the model of screen, it may have an anti-glare coating on it. Do not use any abrasive cleaners, I recommend using Isopropyl Alcohol (Propan-1-ol) as it is used on coated lenses for cameras and sunglasses you should be fine. I recommend using a Microfibre cloth to apply and polish the screen
