Question about RCA D52W19 52" Rear Projection Television
I want to clean the dust out my tv so can you help with.
First, my disclaimer:
I have a much older projector, but the way they are constructed hasn't changed a lot to my knowledge.
An excess of dust can shorten the life of electronics, it's a given. But the majority of these sets are allowed to collect dust for many years of operation before any problem occurs.
I sense that you may instead be asking about cleaning the lenses and mirror. Actually, the mirror, since it faces somewhat at a downward angle in these sets tends to stay clean. the lenses however, face upwards, and do get quite dusty, causing a blurry picture, with ghostly images on the screen at their worst.
To clean the lenses on most RCA sets I've seen, the screen must be removed. Allow the set to cool and voltages to dissipate for 30 minutes before beginning this process. There should be a removable panel beneath the screen, usually retained by screws on the backside at each end. REmoving the panel will expose the screws that keep the screen in place at the bottom. With the screen removed, the lenses (there are three) will be quite obvious. I clean mine with typical glass cleaner and SOFT paper towels. PAY ATTENTION not to allow any liquid to drip into the projector below or you may disable the projector unit possibly causing damage that must be repaired. If you are successful at the lens cleaning you will have restored the picture quality to like new.
If you find my suggestions to be helpful, please share with us some details so that others may benefit from knowing the whole story. Thank you!
