    Sony KDL40V4000 - How to keep the dust off!?

    I bought one of these from the JL deal on here and I am very happy with the TV picture, but I am not happy with the dust that keeps collected on the frame, it is gloss black and reallly noticeable, have tried everything I can think of, tried a magic cloth, it just need cleaning every day, sometimes twice a day... Help!

    any ideas?

    What do you think of the picture quality on this set.

    I've just bought same set but the brightness is poor even after several hours of playing with the settings. Disappointed in it.

    we have that set and I put up a similar thread when we 1st got it. On advise from here I dipped a cloth in some diluted fabric conditioner, wrung out really well, and wiped the surround and its been fine since

    Check out Av Forums and search for your model - people post optimum settings for tv sets :thumbsup:

    I have this and have to say the picture quality is excellent. Used rattouille DVD to calibrate the settings and am more than happy. My dad got the w4000 and says he can't see the diffrence in picture quality. Neither sets have brightness problems, in fact the brightness is never more than half setting

    Not impressed at first but then got some setting from av forums, picture is superb now on sd and hd, very happy with the tv, it replaced a KDL40V2500 which is still going strong and have now been moved to the beadroom.

    i was going to say that LOL
    the fabric softner stops the dust from settling back down on the item
