My 2yr old son sparyed frebreeze all over my 46' toshiba rear projector screen. And because i never realised what he had done the liquid had ran down to the bottom of where the screen fits into, as time passed the screen seem to suck the liquid up behind the screen and now i have lovely black water spots, will this eventually dry up or would replacing the screen be the best option? And how much would it cost?

Re: Water behind screen
Did he think the programming stunk or something??? lol sorry. Sometimes the screens or lens is truely what they are are two piece type lens, depending on the make and the age of the set. On two piece screens (or lens) theres an outer type called a linticualar lens and the inside is like a light house lens as its called a freznal type lens. On Some makes and models these come apart BUT also in some makes and models they are a one piece design. as theres an inside ground lens and the other side is another ground lens. But im woundering if yours isent the two piece type that could be taken out and separated and cleaned as why would it suck up into the lens if it wasent??? I would call a specialist and ask them if its a two piece and could be cleaned or is it a one piece. Try calling toshiba first so you know what it is so you dont get ripped off so the repairperson wont pad the bill. Good luck Oh try calling this # first. 800-457-7777

this sounds like screen burn with rear projection and plasma when a picture is left sitting still on the screen sometimes it will burn in to the screen rendering it useless i left my ps3 paused on my old tv then when i changed to bbc one it still had a faint call of duty pause screen in the back it can vary from things like that to logos to your black rectangle the only way of repair is by replacing the screen all toghether i would advise you to just take the screen off and start using the tv as a projector if you cant find a screen it is only a bit of ribbed plastic but very hard part to find
WELL YOU MIGHT HAVE TO SEPARATE THE 2 PIECE SCREEN. CAREFULLY TRIMMING THE TAPE ALONG THE EDGES. WIPE WITH A CLEAN CLOTH IN THE DIRECTION OF THE GROVES. UP AND DOWN ON THE FRONT-LENTICULAR LENS. AND IN CONCENTRIC CIRCLES ON THE FRESNEL LENS. TAKING THE SCREEN OFF IS EASY. REMOVE THE SPEAKER GRILL AND YOU WILL SEE THE SCREWS HOLDING IT ON.
If they are grease marks you can use a warm water a soft cloth like a t-shirt and little dish washing liquid. Gentley wipe the area only stroking down or up--- NEVER SIDE TO SIDE---. Have a dry cloth ready if you drip water down the screen. Now if those are scuff marks, your done, they cannot be removed. They are like the old record albums with the grooves, once the grooves get distorted that's it. Good luck.
Did you just sell your TV? Because if you did, I'm probably the one who just bought it. Paid $200. Anyways, if not, I did fix it. I dismantled the TV, starting with the bottom. Pull off the speaker cover then unscrew everything on the bottom in order to loosen the top screen portion. Unscrew the top screen and pull it off slowly, disconnecting the one wire that connects it to the rest of the TV. Once the screen is off, you can seperate from the frame it by unscrewing it. I then cleaned both screens (there are two layers) with distilled water and a microfiber cloth. You might be able to use other cleaning methods but I recommend plenty of water and then a non abrasive cloth. Make sure it's clean and dry before putting it back up. Picture is like new and I love it!
