    Just as a note don't use a "soft" cleaning cloth. It will leave fine scratches. Use a microfiber cloth made for glasses.

    Sorry I 'boobed'.... maybe I should have explained better, a cotton cloth is a no no.

    Thanks Cliff, you've saved the day.

    The glass is easy to get too, you have to take the top and bottom panels off then the front comes off just push the glass out from the inside, refer to the service manual

    You're welcome. I learned it the hard way and had to replace a display on a customers radio. Don't ask about cleaning the front panel of a TS950SDX with window cleaner.

    Don't mention that stuff.....! I was a bench engineer in the good ol radio cassette days, had a music center with a fault those things that had a cassette, record player and radio in the 70's, after the repair I thought I'd be a good little chappie and clean the display I used Windolene, the pink creamy stuff not the clear stuff... it made it even blurry - never again.

    And.... that little pocket radio with a 'dodgy' volume control in my very early day's, Radio Spares switch cleaner, came in a tin with a spout - yeah ya' got it Carbon tetrochloride!

    A little drop did it.... the darn case vanished!!!!!
