clean lens on Mitsubishi VS 8087?
hello!really, you can't clean lens to improve the picture quality. it just won't make it worth. I've seen lenses and mirror covered with 1/16 inch layer of the dust, smoke, etc. Wiping them off didn't make much difference if your CRTs(picture tubes) are strong. If those are weak or coolant contaminated(cloudy), no cleaning will drastically improve the picture. Except for "basic" cleaning, which requires disassembling of the cabinet, detaching the mirror and spending couple hours to do so, there is not much you can do yourself. Replacing coolant requires 'top gun" skills, restoring CRTs emissions requires $1,000+ device and knowledge "how to" and 'how not to fry" tubes. If picture is not too bad, but out of convergence, there is nothing to do with any procedures, described above. Especially, if coolant leaked onto boards(very common problem). In any case, there is a MAJOR repair involved, possibly at the board replacement level. Not a D.I.Y. project.If nothing relates to your case, just poke set open from the back(carefully) on top of the "bulge". Clean it with "windex" or "invisible glass", using "bounty" paper towels and try to enjoy the show!good luck,Alex.
