How to clean a rear projection tv INSIDE

This is what I did and it worked great-
I have a 60" Phillips bigscreen that has been getting dusty and actually had a spider inside the tv for about 6 yrs. This bothered me a lot until I got the guts to unscrew the back covering (the large dark grey turtle shell type plastic cover). It came off very easily.
1. I made sure the tv was unplugged
2. once inside I could see all components easily
3. I rolled it outside onto my deck
4. I used my leaf blower to instantly remove all the clumps of dust and webs followed by a once over with my swiffer
5. I then used a soft glasses cleaner cloth to fine clean each of the 3 colored lenses
6. a damp soft cloth was used to clean mirror
7. replace the back cover and go! It made a huge difference in picture quality

We need to clean our Sony KP-53N77. We have some spider webs inside the protective screen and our color is a little fuzzy. We have never had the mirrors cleaned. How do we access the areas to clean and is there a danger of shock even if the TV is unplugged?

Remove the back hardboard cover by removing all the screws and lifting the cover up and toward you.

Mirror will be above but usually doesnt get dusty. Try not to touch it if you can. Same with back of screen. If you have a spider web just use a soft dry cloth to wipe it away.

You will likely find the upward facing lamp lenses covered in dust. Clean these with a soft cloth moistened with glasses cleaning solution. Glass cleaner works too.
