Dull picture on my KP61s65

I bought the unit in 1998. I have been told by some not to try to clean the mirror or light guns.
One guy told me that there was no mirror to clean.
What do you recomend?

    The information provided by electronick is very good.

    I have been cautioned by a number of "experts" NOT to try this procedure on my own, but now I am going to give it a shot based on electronick's recommendation!

    Thanks much!

You can safely clean the mirror and lenses, it can greatly increase your picture if its dirty. If you unplug your tv you can safely remove the back and gain access to the lenses. All it takes is a philips screwdriver. After you remove the back, you can remove the light barrier between the upper and lower half to free up some room. Take a dry scratch-free cloth and wipe the dust from the lenses. If they're grimy, use a little lens cleaner (liquids used sparingly here, electronics don't like liquids, be careful) You can look up into the top and see if the mirror is dirty. A flashlight shined on it will illuminate the dust/dirt if its there. If you don't smoke you likely won't need to clean the mirror, but it may need it. Use windex or similar for tough grime.. I can usually reach up to get the whole mirror but I've heard of using a swiffer mop to reach the top. Removing the screen is difficult but possible if needed to get inside. Don't touch the back of the screen but lightly with a rag to get cobwebs, etc.

Do I need to clean the screen on a DLP television? I have only changed the bulb. I feel like the picture is getting less sharp.


Not the screen so much as the projection mirror which is located on the rear wall of the Set. If the mirror gets dull it can make the picture dim and dull looking. Cleaning the mirror will help. Some models have a small mirror which projects the image back onto the rear mirror. Dont use windex, just a damp cloth then dry good.

You can take the back cardboard cover off to get to the lenses on the picture tubes. Usually, if the picture is dull because it needs cleaning, the mirror should be cleaned. You can remove the top half of the back of the tv and the mirror will be mounted to the inside of it.

1998 Mitsubishi vs-60601 picture is dull and not as vibrant as it should be


the first thing I would do is to clean the lenses of the CRTs they may be coated with dust that will dim the picture. other than that the CRTs may be failing since the phospher of CRTs fade in brightness over time and the only solution is to replace all three CRTs. the CRTs I have discovered are no longer availible.

How can I clean the mirrors on this tv?


to clean the mirrors you must remove the screen first there are several screws in the back to remove the screen. then there is a mirror shaped like a polligon clean this with a dry cloth do not use a paper towel. soft colth must be used on any optical surface. then clean the optical engine lens in the same manner. them the large mirror in the back. remeber if you leave a defect on any of these surfaces it will be amplified by the screen. this system relies on a lamp to provide bright picture so replace that as well. this should be a part of your anual cleaning agreement of the after market warranty you purchased assuming you bought one. dim picture = lamp, fuzzy, dim, dull picture = dust
