Question about Epson Livingstation LS57P2 57" Rear Projection HDTV
We are getting pink blotches all over the screen. TV is just over a year old. The tv has been replaced once already because of the same problem. Any ideas?
I just fixed the problem on my epson 57" living station. The picture is like new. Yo have to clean the dust off of the the 3 lcd lenses. (I'm not sure if thay are actually called lenses)
You can get to these by entering thru the front of the TV. Yes the front. You must remove the screen. There are A LOT of screws. This screen housing covers the entire front of the tv. and you have to remove the back panel and ALL the screws on the back of the tv to get it off. The only electronics that have to be disconnected are the Speakers and the front control panel. They both have snap connectors. After you remove the entire front panel which houses the screen and expose the inside mirror you will see more screws. You must remove those as well to remove the mirror housing. DO NOT REMOVE THE MIRROR FROM THE HOUSING. Note that there is a peg that is next to a screw in thre front of the mirror housing thst you must pull the plastic housing out in that area to release it.After you remove the mirror housing you will see the 3 LCD panels or lenses. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO REMOVE ANY ELECTRONICS OR SCREWS AT THIS POINT. Use a can of compessed air to spray the dust out of this area. I used a vacume to catch the dust as it flew out in the air. Try to hold the can as upright as possible.Keep hitting it with the air until no more dust comes out. Put the tv back together. As you open up the tv you will see dust everywhere. I took the oppurtunity to clean as much as I could. The Mirror though was clean an I was afraid to touch it.
I am a Construction Salesman yet fairly handy. I have no electricle experience. This took me 2 1/2 hrs. I spent the first 45 min. trying to get to the lcd panels from the back of the tv. Don't waste your time. You can't.

I am on my 4th engine. luckily, epson has replaced all free of charge. but...the fouth one has yellowing along the bottom half. last i talked to a representative, they asked to do some "home" remedy. now i can't get a hold of that person. it's dust on the mirror or somewhere in the engine. i was wondering if i could get the duster can that would be used to dust computers. the pressurized cans of air. i think i'm gonna blast the inside. it may make it worse tho. but i'm sick of this tv! i've had it 4 years and every year it needs a new engine. but remember...they replace the parts with refurbished parts!

If your TV works normally when first switched on and goes on the blink within 30 minutes. You then switch off for 5 minutes then the picture is good again. 10 minutes later the problem is back.
This is a fair indication that your TV has early signs of dust asthma covering and causing heating up the circuits. On hot days it worsens quicker within (5 to 10).
If you had 1% this much dust up your nose you would sneeze or blow your nose.
Solution compressed air can - blow out. Pick your day, (not hot / windy) after rain is real clean air. Then location place (non dusty, higher up on a table, not the floor) and you need 1 other person assisting. (2nd pair of eyes always helps & maybe a torch). They hold a damp sheet half circling the blowing area about 180% solves that problem and indicates the dust your blowing out is not stirring up the surrounding atmosphere creating vacuums for few newer coatings. It will surprise you what hits the sheet as heat attracts and holds dust. Cooled down TV.

The pink blotches are dust on the lcd panel. Unfortunately our tv is out of warranty and Epson wants 500.00 to come clean the dust off the panels. Nice!
