Question about JVC AV-65WP55 65" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

2 Answers

Sprayed Screen My 3 year old nephew sprayed our 65 inch television, which we purchased in 2003, with some Orange Oil furniture non-aerosol cleaner. Now there is like half swirl marks on the bottom of the screen where it looks like it has seeped in. Can I fix this myself or do I have to get a new part? If I get the new part, can I take the old screen off myself and replace it again?

Re: Sprayed Screen

Take a look at this relevant post:,p211196/RCA-P61927-61-in-Rear-Projection-Television.aspx It's possible that the cleaning agent in the spray has dissolved the screen. If it is the lenticular lens(the vertical lines) there will always be permanent marks from the spray until it is replaced. You can try a toothbrush, dry and carefully scrape the material out of the grooves. there's also the Endust Product made just for this type of thing, It's called Endust for Electronics, and I heard it works like a champ. Another option is a dry-cleaning solvent, trichloro-ethane, which you can find at many hardware stores. This will wipe crayon marks right off of glass without any scrubbing at all. Plus, it's harmless to most plastics. Also heard of a product called Tough and Tender, that should be ok with a screen. you better consult JVC on any material you plan to use though. Major problem is in case the spray dissolved the screen. Don't be hard on the kid, encourage him and he might be a great graffiti artist ;]

Re: Sprayed Screen


I replaced the screen on my 62 inch projection TV for about $50 and the the picture quality is good! Have a sheet of plexiglass cut to the EXACT size needed. BEFORE installation it MUST be frosted on both sides by either a fine particle sandblaster or by sanding it VERTICALLY on BOTH sides with a power sander and a fine grade paper.
If this is only an OUTER protective screen and the image is projected on the inner screen then DO NOT frost the replacement screen, just install it.

Yes the red tube is shorted. I will post a link to the site where I work as they have an entire AV48WP30 with a bad tuner they are selling parts off of including the Tubes. they also provide free info on how to switch out the tubes as a unit which is a fairly easy job. Heres the link.

I assume you are talking about a coaxial connector? If that is the case then you could use a vcr to plug the coaxial cable into then output from the vcr with composite/rca and that will plug into your converter.
Hope that helps.
Thank you,

My akaipth5498 projection tv shows a dark picture, even after adjusting colors. it looks like a bootleg movie.

If you unplug the set and look with the back cover removed you will find 3 large black round lens inside---light source (red,green,blue) for your picture--clean them with a lens cloth or a paper towel with glass cleaner sprayed on the towel.

Should be done about 1 time a year.

I have a magnavox 55 inch screen model nu is 6p5440w102. Picture is dark tried to lighten but wont brighten up anymore.

This is an older set------with back off you will see 3 large black cylinders with lens---these are the red, green and blue picture tubes.

Clean the lens with a lens cloth or paper towel with glass cleaner sprayed on the towel.

Annual cleaning of them is suggested as dust or dirty lens will cut down the brightness---this happens gradually over time and will make the picture darker and somewhat dull looking.

I do it with set on but you should UNPLUG SET and just look to see if dust on lens.

Simple and takes only a few minutes.

Let me know what happens.

Need to remove the screen on ws55859 to clean mirror and lens, it is almost 10 years old and time to be cleaned.

Remove front speaker grill(s) at the bottom of the screen behind the speaker grill you will find four or more black screws hold the bottom in. Look carefully to see the front keyboard needs to be unplugged---usually one or two different size plugs; you may have to remove the inspection plate located in back of the speaker grill to get to the point where they can be disconnected, with the keyboard disconnected the entire screen lifts straight up(you need to bring it up 3-4 inches and then it comes straight out(there are two hooks on either side that it goes into--when you finish line up a little and slide it back until it is back in place.

Clean the mirror with glass cleaner and the lens can be cleaned with a lens cloth or with a paper towel with glass cleaner sprayed on it.

Replace the screws and the speaker grill unit for the set.

I do this here for free so if this helps you give me a vote here.

Cleaning black front panel

Depending on what type of screen you TV has, many have plastic frenel screens that react to certain cleaners such as ammonia and alchohol based. These compounds can permanently damage the screen causing a cloudy area where it was sprayed. Unfortunately nothing can be done except to replace the screen.
