My brother put his fist through the screens on our 60 inch projection phillips tv a few years ago. I ordered all 3 new screens from a small company and only received 2 out of 3. I'm missing the fresnel screen. I called phillips a number of times over the years to get a new one and they've told me they no longer make them! How does a company no longer make its own product! Does anyone know where I might be able to get this screen?? Thanks so much!

There is not much you can do besides replace the screen. Go to www.encompassparts.com There are 2 screens together on the front. The outside screen is the lenticular sceen and the inside screen is the fresnel screen. Thanks
You must remove the front bezel and frame holder to replace the screen. You will usually see the screws holding the from from the rear of the unit. Once you get the frame off, take note of the way the old screen is installed. There is usually a label on one side near the bottom; the new screens must be installed with the label in the same location. The lenticular goes on the outside (facing the viewer) and the fresnel goes on the inside facing the mirror. You will be able to recognize the fresnel, it has a series of concentric circles that are raised on the sirface of the plastic Be sure to rate this solution.Thanks!

I think that you just called my shop, well in any event what you need to do is to contact the manufacture and order the part from them. The part is called a fresnel screen. Give them the make and model of your set and they will send you the part once you order it, however I would suggest that you get a qualified TV Technician to install the fresnel once you receive it. The cost will be around $150- $350 (average based on industry installation prices) for labor.
Some screens have labels, so place them so the labels are upright and tward the front of the TV.
The outside screen is the lenticular screen. The black vertical lined side is outside. The fresnel screen has very fine circular lines in it. You can find them by feeling them. This goes against the lenticular back side of the screen. the fesnel has a flat side that is the back. It will be tward the mirror. If the mirror has two shiny sides, then it should be placed with the mirror side out. You can tell this by placing your finger tip on the mirror. If the finger nail meets a fingernail, then this is the mirrored side. Install this side tward the front.
Try to keep dust from between the screens. Check by looking through the screens before you put the in the frame. Then check them again after you put them in the frame.
Wear latex gloves to keep finger prints away.
Clean back of screen assembly and install the screen on the TV.
