How do I remove the front panel?

This is going to sound crazy, but a little spider has decided to make it's home in my TV. The little thing has created a web in between the plastic front panel and the tube. I just need to know how to take off the plastic front panel without breaking it. Thank you in advance for the help!

Re: How do I remove the front panel?

Yes, I have seen this many times. Usually the best thing to do is remove the upper back cover and remove the webs with a clean, dry cloth, but be careful because the mirror is attached to the inside of the upper back cover.

Screen went black

Remove the front grey bottom panel of you TV (don't forget the 2 screws behind the front AV cover located just below the power button) then remove the panel behind the grey panel. You should see 2 heat sinks on the front right of your TV, place a fan near your TV and have it blowing on the heat sinks. Now turn on your TV and see if it stays on longer then it has been. If it does, your DC amps might be overheating. If they are, you might be able to fix your problem by adding in a little more heat sink compound between your DC amps and the heat sink itself. You can find the compound at Radio Shack for about $5. let me know if pointing a fan directly on the heat sinks helps.

Panasonic pt-50lc13 air filter location

It is in the front on the left of the bulb compartment. It is as easy as removing two screws using lots of DAMP Q tips and having some patience. Keep carefully swabbing top and underside filter until clean, then lightly and very carefully vacuum with a home vac do not use a shop vac!
Leave TV unplugged with cover off as long as you can I would say a few hours or overnight and then plug in. If the filter is clean and you still get the error message there are other posts here that explain how to go into service mode and reset.
You do not need to spend hundreds of dollars on a "Panasonic" technician who has "done it before". You can dooooo it!!

Screen Turns Blue and shuts off

Go to this site, follow the instructions, and it may fix your problems. I did, and my tv is better than ever!
I was having this problem with blue. I was able to fix it, and now my tv works again. For those having trouble removing a different front panel, here is what I found on mine -

I own a KP57WV600. Removing the front panel is a little trickier on this model. You remove the 6-8 screws on each side behind the two speakers. You will access these from the lower rear/sides of the TV. Remove the small 2ft plastic pieces. Now from the front of the machine grab the entire lower piece (speaker covers & power/volume/chanel buttons) from the bottom and pull down and towards yourself. There are 4 slots that this piece fits into. I had to take off the lower back panel to see why it wouldn't come out. Don't pull to far because this lower front piece is connected to wires. I'd say you have about a foot of play. Now you can remove the fiber board panel and access the blue/green/red lower screws. When you adjust these, go a fraction of a milimeter at a time.

Faint blue arched line across picture

I had the same problem with my sony KP-57ws500 rear projection tv. To solve this problem all you need is a flat and phillips screwdriver. Right below your speakers on the right and left side are tabs. Pull out the tabs and remove the screw on eachside. Once that is done remove the speaker cover and you will see a fiber board cover in the middle of the tv, there will most likley be twist ties holding some wires, to make it easier to work remove the ties. Now remove the screws on the fiber board and pull it off. You should see 3 adjustments on the top for focus, do not touch those. Below the focus adjustments on the bottom is the blue, red, and green adjustments (they should be labled). All you have to do is turn adjustment screw slightly to the left(or counter clockwise) and it should clear right up. I'm not a technician but i read up on it in a repair manual and it worked perfectly and saved me a $100.00 for a service call. It took about 10 minutes to do. I also have a friend who expiernced the same problem with a different model sony projection tv and it worked for his also. Apparently this is a common adjustment that needs to be made espicially if the tv is moved.
