Tip & How-To about Televison & Video
You tried to clean your projection TV screen with windex and sprayed it onto the screen. Later you notice that there is liquid between the screens. How do you get it out?
First your screen is composed of three pieces. It may not look like it but there are three pieces of plastic making up the screen. If any liquid gets between them you will have an anoying problem.
You will have to remove the speaker grille to get to the screws that hold the screen on. Pulling gently on the side of the grille you should be able to get the grille to pop off. Move your fingers around the grille to continue removing it. Do not force the screen but pull on it steady.
Once off you should see the screws holding the screen on at the bottom of the screen. Remove all screws. If you have magic focus you will need to remove the back first so that you can disconnect the wires to the sensors. Removing the back is simple and only requires the removal of the screws around the perimeter of the back assembly.
Once this is done grab the screen on both sides and lift it straight up. You may have to tug to break it loose. Once off the screen can be removed from the frame by removing all the screws around the perimeter.
You should be able to separate the screens (there are three) with a razor knife and dry them. I would leave the screens apart for a few days after wiping the liquid off just to make sure there is no moisture left.
Reassemble the screen as it was prior to disassembly and use duct tape or black tape around the edge to hold it together. Place it back in the bezel and reassemble the unit. It should be good and have no moisture problems.
