we have a particularly long cob web right inside the screen of our Mitsu VS-60609 that's become quite noticeable. any way for us to remove the screen and clean behind it?


Yes , you can gain access by removing the speaker grille that pops off by grabbing it in the corners and pulling it out . Once removed you will see wires that come from the bottom of the screen trim and going into an access panel in the middle where you removed the speaker grille from . Make sure the tv is unplugged and remove the access panel and there should be two clips that need to be unpluged so when you remove the screen these to not pull out from the boards . Now you should see 4 to 5 phillips screws along the bottom of the plastic srceen that need to be taken out . once out now the screen can be removed . Now the screen slides on and off by pulling it upwards by grabing the plastic trim sides . It might be snug . Now some sets the bottom piece comes outward then up . Try the this previous suggestion first . Once off remove the cob webs and clean the three lens while your there to remove the dust buildup on them with a soft slightly damp cloth not pressing hard then dry it off with a cloth that is not damp . Make sure when putting the screen back on it slides back in the hooks that were holding on and the screw holes should line back up and connect your two cable clips back on and put access panel back on and speaker grille and your problem is solved . Good luck let know , thanks Team tech

dust buildup behind the screen


Remove speaker girll.No screws to remove grill just pull off.At the bottom of the screen frame you will see 4 1/4 inch screws.Remove screws and lift screen straight up.Clean cob webs and clean off lenses.I do not reccomend cleaning the mylar mirror.It is very delicate and you will scratch it.You can use windex to clean lenses.Good luck.

Hazy yellow spot in the left lower corner of the screen


It could be a cob web inside the tv or something laying on one of the guns, like a dead bug. If it's a cob web, you should be able to move the tv a little side to side and see it change from the moving air current. I would remove the back and vacuum off the lenses of the guns and look for cob webs. It's safe to touch and clean the lenses, just don't touch any electronics.If this doesn't fix it, it's probably fluid starting to cloud up in the guns or IC chip problems.

Needs to be cleaned


The back comes off the unit.  Lots of screws.  If you do this, DO NOT touch anything related to the tubes.  Power it off for several hours...unplugged...before touching it.

Cob web


The cob web is likely to be on the other side of the screen. I undid the back cover and dusted the screen from the inside. I also sprayed pesticide inside the TV (wood and corners only!)
