Welcome to the site! I'm Dan. You can brush (camel hair) and vacuum. Don't use pressure / blow air unless you're going to remove components and blow them out elsewhere. Otherwise, the dust will settle on the optics. I like to vacuum first, then camel hair brush, then I use a camera lens cleaner (any optical grade cleaner will work) on the optics.

Are you still having trouble with the TV? Did you get the lamp replaced OK?

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
