It is difficult to clean/remove the screens. Best case senario, it will dry up leaving little to no water mark. There are three screens, liquid gets between them and it sucks it in. Disassembly and cleaning will fix, but the screens are very fragile and cannot be wiped without potential damage. Any dust, dirt between them will show in the picture. Proceed at your own risk.

I did something wrong.....


Windex is not the best cleaner. Bed and Bath Beyond has a very good NON-Streak class cleaner that I tell my customers to use. The best solution is NOT to Spray directly onto the TV Screen. Remember the glass is only delivering the picture from an RGB projection unit sitting inside the enclosure. It is not the electronic projector and the screen is separate. It can be replaced if damaged; however I believe it is only streaked and needs proper cleansing. If you get the new cleaner, spray the solution onto a soft cloth and wipe the exterior screen. Promptly wipe it dry and if you need to do this a few times, eventually you will get the glass clear and enjoy the show.

How to remove moisture from between a Projection TV Screen.


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.

My Sony DLP has WHITE DOTS all over the screen, Whats THAT?


I have a lcd tv that has a few black dots but it may be from a similar cause. During a move the screen was rubbed against i was wiping the screen later and picked a small piece of plastic off the screen. The moral is... the screens are sensitive to the touch and you should be carefull how you clean it. When i bought my tv i also bought a spray of deionized water. There must be reasons behind why we can't use windex or other chemicals on a screen these days.

Cob webs behind screen


The frame around the screen just pops off. Unscrew the plastic holders from the chassis frame and the screen will come off allowing you to clean everything inside easily. The "2" thin screens are easily cleaned and put back on easily also. Don't do what I did and think the screens go into the front slot of your plastic brace, they slide easily into the wider slot. You'll also be able to clean the dust from the reflector and guns with Windex. Much better picture after wards, trust me. You would be surprised how much dust may have accumulated on the lenses.

What do you clean the led tv screen with?


Hi, just a soft cloth/swiffer is great for the dust. NEVER spray anything on the screen. If you have kids and it is not dust. Use mild soap/or windex. Spray onto a lint free cloth. Paper towls can scrach the screen over time.Buy are ok if you do not rub hard. just put the windex or soap water on the rag/or towl. Also DO NOT set anything on top of the TV you own. It will cause the screen to bow. I have the same one. Mirror is on the top of tv insted of angled on the back. Cool idea. But not to well thought through. Needs more support to hold something.Looks great,and takes up only 10" but the sound not happy with. Pict is great. Hope this helps. Todd toddthetvmd@yahoo.com

My nephew spray windex on my dlp tv and not is in between both screens n it black but you can move the water still with your fingers


Well I'll say this. There has been no damage done yet. The problem is that the windex has wicked up in between the Lenticular screen and the Fresnel lens screen. If you attempt to seperate both screens yourself then I can guarentee you will damage both screens.
Not cheap to replace both screens. The screens CAN be cleaned with a screen cleaner from Screen Clean but the real problem is finding a Highly qualified technician who has done this many times before. The Fresnel lens screen is EXTREMELY soft and has tiny ridges that damage very very easily and you will see permenant black streaks in the picture. Never use Windex,Amonia or 409 and the like cleaners on the screens. When you use a screen cleaner, spray the cleaner on a MICRO cloth (Very Soft) then carefully clean the scree. Like I said, the screens can be cleaned safely only by a Highly skilled technician. The black spots from the windex will not eventually go away. Contact the tv manufacture as they can direct to a authorized service center they trust.

Screen cleaning


Use any lintless cloth. Spray any clener you use on the cloth, not the screen. I often just spray a little Windex (or store equivalent) onto a terrycloth rag and use that.

Wet rear projection sceen


You may be able to reach it through taking off the back cover and wiping the screen down. If not you will have to remove the screen assembly.

Liquid leaked into tv


Hi Tracy,
I have the sweetest grandchildren and tey are always willing to help also, so we have to love the children for all their wonderful help. ( NOT !!! ...lol ) But lets not send your son to the adoption web sight just yet. I'll start by letting you know ( in a sigh of releif for you ) that your tv is not damaged forever, although, when the windex drys, you will probably see a dirt stain on the screen, since the windex probably did it's job and cleaned the dirt off, unfortunatly the residue is between the screens. You have 2 layer of plastic screens for your TV. One is a lexan shield and the other is a riffled substance plastic. To seperate the two of them, you need to take the front of the TV off, normally by removing screws from the inside of the TV ( this can be a tricky job and I really suggest you have a pro do it if you haven't worked on TV's in the past ). If you do it, be extra careful not to break the screen or sheild after removing as they can get a bit pricey. When you take them out, they will seperate ( one lays on top of the other, no real trick to them ) and then just grab your windex ( the remains of the bottle that your son left you ) and clean them like you would glass. Of course after you clean the screens, replace them in the oppisite proceedure of taking them apart and wella, all is ok again and junior remians a loving and helpful son. smiling. I hope this helped. Nice day.
