Question about Panasonic PT-47WX51 47" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Cleaning I need to remove the main screen to clean inside. I've had several flys get in there and as a result have specks and smears (all black) being projected on the screen. How do I remove it (the screen and bezel)? My guess is all the screws around the perimiter from the back? Any secrets I need to know?

If you go in the back, you can clean the screen from the back without removing it. Be careful not to scratch it. If you have one, try a feather duster first. Also while you are in there, clean all three color tubes, Use a mild cleaner or just water as the lens may be coated and strong cleaners may remove the coating. Ours went 7 years without cleaning and the only question is why we could still see a picture.

IWL16 mildew or black specks on clothers

could just need a good clean. these machines remove dirt from clothes very well, but it can build up on the inside of the outer. disconnect power, remove top (two screws under covers under lid), remove top bowl ring (8 clips) remove agitator (1 screw deep inside) remove inner bowl. scrub it. also trying a hot wash with some cleaning product to flush the machine every couple months can stop this happening in the future.

There is a black dotted line whenever I make copies on the cannon imagerunner 400s

It's either a speck on the scanner glass for the document feeder, or a smear of toner on one of the rollers. Check the skinny band of glass inside the document feeder for specks and clean it with a lint-free soft cloth and a little rubbing alcohol or a very little bit of water.

I am getting white specks on all four colors on my phaser 8500 and some black smudges. I just did a smudge clean and it helped, but it didn't clear it.


Try a laser printer roller cleaner (paper sheets), like PathKleen or Perfect Data. You may need to run sheets through several times before the cleaning is complete. Do not use a sheet more than once.

Hope this helps.

Black spot on pictures - cleaned lenses and inside

The spots can be in the inside of the lens settings to the CCD/imager.
If the cleaning of the lens is done well it can be a speck of dust logged in to the screen and having it on the image.
A careful cleaning in a dust proof set up is required.

Epson Stylus C86 smearing

Your printer has ink build up inside it. This comes from cleaning cartridges and builds-up steadily over time. Remove top cover. Wet a cotton swab with isopropyl alcohol (available at drug stores) and clean the inside. use a cotton bud where the swab gets entangled.

My iP6700D won't print black either!

Your printhead is plugged and cleaning can't help a lot. It'spossible that the purge unit is not cleaning properly, in which case a new printhead could be ruined in a short while. Otherwise if you aren't printing something at least once a week, the ink has just dried in your printhead and you need a new one.

Smeared lines

Okay, this was the problem I posted a few days ago. It's fixed now, so in case you have the same problem with smearing, here's what the help desk from Canon suggested: Open the cover and remove the ink cartridges. There is a gray lever in front of the cartridges. Lift this lever and the printhead can be easily removed.
Our printhead had a buildup of black ink on the surface. I carefully removed this with rubbing alcohol. I let the printhead dry and replaced everything. No more smearing. Imagine a help-desk that actually helped!

Black particles on focusingscreen

If the specks are just on your viewfinder focussing screen, they won't be on your pics. If they're on both your pics and focussing screen, you need to find someone else to clean your camera. Cleaning either your CCD sensor or your screen yourself can leave scratches. Changing lenses often can suck dust into the inside if the body is dusty. Try another repair shop for thorough cleaning - it shouldn't cost more than $50.
