Rca hdlp50w151 screen removal

I need to remove the front screen to get some dust out. I have removed the rear screws and the front grill but can only tilt the screen forward a few inches. Is there another screw or press fitting at the bottom? I dont want to force and break something. There were 2 screws at the bottom of the screen with the grill removed but they didnt help when removed. Thanks for any info...

Remove the 3 screws about 3 inches in on the back side of the speaker cover on each side. pull out and slightly upward on the speaker cover to remove. supsupport the cover if you do not want to disconnect the ground and button control cables. Remove the screws on the top and side rear panel to front frame/screen cover. tilt the screen cover out about 12 in at the top and lift up. Reverse the procedure to reinstall.

Re: rca hdlp50w151 screen removal

Almost every set comes apart a differant way. My advice would be to go ahead and get the service manual if you want to do this type of service yourself as then you will know for sure if your taking apart the proper se quence of parts in the order they should be. As I remember a lady customer once , started to take apart her projection set, and did not not ewhat to take apart and it ended up costing herover a grand as she took out some critical screws that made the main mirror inside the set to drop and break and caused damage to two of the main projection lenes!!! My advice to you here is get tyhe service manual as I wish i had it to give you but I do not. If you invest like I think 20 to 30 bucks and go to you can be sure of what your doing and how to do it for your set! Please report back and tell us how myou made out?!

How do i take off the front panel assembly on my rca hd52w59

The lower front speaker grille will need to be removed first by removing the screws along the back edge of the rear cover as shown in the pic below. then just pop the lower speaker grille off then you will see the screws along the bottom edge of the front control panel and also on the rear edge again then that panel lifts off but you will need to reach behind as your removing it to unplug the wires that are hooked to both small circuit boards on that panel ( keyboard & aux input boards)1_28_2012_3_47_13_pm.jpg

Kp57ws500 i need to remove the front screen for transport. the back panel is off. how do i remove the front screen panel?

You need to take the front grill off. There are two screws on the front at the very bottom. They are covered by a little plastic insert for cosmetics. Remove the screws and gently pull the bottom grill down. You will see wire connectors you can disconnect to completely remove the grill. After that, there is about 5 screws under the screen bezel that are holding it in place.

remove the speaker grille. then there should be a few screws running along the bottom of the screen frame. after removing those screws slide the entire fram up to release the hooks that hold the screen frame to the cabinet. Be careful and unhook the wire clip from the front control panel once the screen frame is loose before you stretch the wires.

The plastic screen itself never gets dirty on the inside, unless a spider has taken up residence nearby. What you are likely experiencing is dust built up on the CRT lens and mirror - which would cause the picture to look dull with low contrast and brightness. If that is the case, you may find on your model that the screen either pulls out or that there is a wood piece at the bottom that is hiding some screws or maybe the speaker grill needs to be removed to expose said screws. Be gentle cleaning the mirror, as it is surface coated and could be scratched easily.

Inside screen seems to be getting dirty

I had the same problem until I removed the screen and cleaned the front mirror with a static feather duster. First, turn OFF power. Second, remove screws on rear at top and on both sides of the screen. Third, remove speaker grill. Fourth, remove screws on each side of the screen where screen meets the speaker area. Fifth, remove two screws in center area of speaker area under screen. Sixth, lift screen up and away from set housing and use a duster with a two to three extension and GENTLY wipe the noticeable dust layer from the front tilted mirror located behind the screen at bottom of screen. Seventh, do everything in the REVERSE and you're done. If you need to replace the lamp, now's a good time to do so. Also you should clean the dust filter located behind an access door on the rear (right hand side as your are looking at the rear) with a handheld type of vacuum device.

After I completed ALL of the above procedures my WD-62525 was better than I remember. I bought it in 2005 and the picture quality has never looked so good.

The screen is as light as a feather but 62" is awkward. It is recommended you use another person to hold the screen but I work best alone and it was a breeze.

if the tv has never been service before you could have dust on the 3 tubes,this will decrease the brightness to the screen. try taking the front or back off & see if you can see the top of the picture tubes. remember to unplug the tv & to clean spray the cleaner on the colth , then clean the tup of the tube. never spary on the tube itself. hope this works for you. to remove the screens remove the front grill, then remove the screws @! the bottom of the screen & if i remember right the top just sits on a lip, so gently try to lift the screen up.careful, these screens are expensive & you will have 2 or 3 of them. some of them are really easy to scratch.
