The protector screen is $247.79 If the screen behind that is damaged, that one is $147.97 If the last screen is damaged, that one is $495.00
I hope he only damaged the 1st clear screen, known at the screen protector

Tip

Rear projection TV displays a shadow on one corner or side of the screen.


Hi.

This tip may be helpful only if your rear projection TV is displaying a darker shadow on one portion of the screen. If the shadow shape and size will not vary, that means that there is probably a detached mirror in the device called Light Tunnel, located inside your TV.


Most rear projection TV works projecting the light from the internal lamp on the screen. Before reaching the screen , the light will pass through a 'pipe' whose internal surface is covered in rectangular mirrors, located all over the tunnel surface.

A quite common fault is caused by one of the mirror detaching from the the light tunnel internal surface , and falling down or hanging in there. This will be seen on the display as a darker shade located near to one side of the screen.

The light tunnel is located in the light engine. To repair the problem the TV must be disassembled by a technician. Accessing and disassembling the light engine is not a repair that can be done by the owner.

Click here to view pictures of a light engine for a Samsung rear projection model. The tunnel is the optical device located in the light engine.


If you are a technician, to replace the light tunnel you will have to take apart the light engine, that apart of being quite a sensitive optical device, is also the most expensive part on a rear projection TV.

In that case you may find useful the service bulletin posted below, that is illustrating how to replace the light tunnel on a light engine for Samsung rear projection TV. Please be aware, that if you attempt doing this operation without sufficient knowledge and experience, you may damage your TV set beyond repair, as the light engine is very expensive.

I have a panasonic pt47wx49e rear projection television. On the bottom half of the screen there is a red shadowing effect that makes me think the convergence is off. Also there is a scratch on the outer...


I had the same problem with my tv. It is a convergence problem but if it has convergence settings in the menu and they don't fix it, you need to clean the lenses with alcohol and q-tips. I did it with the tv on so i could make sure it was clean by the absence of streaks on the lenses. The outer screen (if it is smooth) should be a protective screen (just plexiglass). You can get a replacement at a glass store be sure to keep the old one so they can cut a piece to size. It the screen you are talking about has little lines in it your freznel lens is scratch and it will be difficult to find a replacement. Good luck!

While moving someone accidently cracked the screen-can it be replaced


It can be, but at quite the price. Screens are very expensive and can amount to 2/3rds the price of the TV. In most cases, count the warranty out, if you are still under one, unless you found a manufacturer that covers accidental damage. Do you have house insurance or accident insurance with your credit card company if you used it to buy the TV?
