Cleaning the Mirrors and Lenses Rear Projection Sony KP 53S15

Had this tv for 10 years now works great but I have never cleaned it on the inside. I am sure there are cob webs and years of dust collected inside. I would hope this would improve my picture quality. Could you advise what are the main parts I should clean and how would I access these parts? Do I go through the front or back of the TV? Is it ok to use vinegar and water to clean the mirrors and lenses? Any other tips you could provide would be greatly appreciated. TY Ian Maxwell

Do not use water or vinegar. use a can of air spray first just as you would use for your computer. Once all the dust has cleared then use a wetnap with vinegar. Not too wet though as you must remember that vinegar is an extractent. Meaning it will not take much to clead those visible parts and mirror only. bulbs may need to be taken off and yes open from the rear of the unit.

Sorry you are having trouble.
This is very common problem.
Do you feel comfortable looking inside with the power off?
Most likely the lenses and or mirrors need to be cleaned.
For the mirrors we use Windex or similar cleaner
For the lenses I recommend lens cleaner from a camera shop
Yes this worth fixing. If you dont feel comfortable doing the cleaning yourself just call a serviceman

Cleaning mirrors and lenses on Sony big-screen projection TV


it's fairly easy to remove the screws on the back bottom portion of any rear-projector television. when the bottom part is removed, you will see both the mirror and the 3 lens. isopropyl alcohol or windex should do an efficient job. a soft lens rag can be found at any camera store. i'd spray the lens rag instead of the actual lens or mirror when doing this job.

Sony KP 53S65 53" rear projection TV contrast issue


While the root of the problem is likely the picture tubes aging, I'm sure it would benefit from a cleaning and adjusting. After the dust is cleaned from the lenses, the screen controls could likely be lowered to get the blacks you desire. An experienced tech would be able to do this for you.
