How to clean the Kinect sensor lens

In most cases, you won’t need to clean the lens on your Kinect sensor. But if the lens on your sensor is dirty or smudged, it’s important to clean the lens without damaging it. This page describes how.

Solutions

First, use a soft lens cleaning brush to clear away any dust or dirt particles. Then, use a clean microfober cloth to clean the lens by using a gentle, circular motion.

Note Use a microfiber cloth that is designed for cleaning lenses.

If the microfiber cloth doesn’t remove smudges or fingerprints, use a lens cleaning solution designed for cleaning camera lenses or glasses. Spray the cleaning solution onto the cleaning cloth (not directly onto the Kinect lens).

Note When you use a lens cleaning solution to clean the lens on your Kinect sensor, don’t apply the solution directly to the lens. Instead, spray the solution on the microfiber cloth and then wipe the lens on the Kinect sensor by using a gentle circular motion.
