It could be either place probably on the back of the screen itself. If it were on the picture tubes it would be big. You'll have to take the back off and check it. Stargazer

I have a Toshiba tv that is connected to Direct tv and I want to know how to connect my new Phillips dvd player to it my tv?

Flat screens normally have 3 different inputs from tv. Regular is tv coax cable, then audio/picture by using special rca cables, then last HDMI. You can use any of those inputs except hdmi because you already are using that input. You may be able to buy a hdmi splitting device that will allow both the tv and the player to input to the single hdmi input. Check Radio Shack or Wal-Mart.

Scratched plastic screen protector

I have a rear projection TV that I thought had a scratch as well. Upon closer examination and several attempts to clean, I discovered that there was a spider web behind the screan in front of the color projectors. I carefully removed the screen and gently cleaned the spider web from the screen. Presto no more scratches.

Hope this is a viable solution for you as well.

I have a spiderweb pattern and big black spois all over the screen and the picture is broken up, how do I reset the screen?

I hate to say this, has anyone accidentally hit the front of the screen? That's the only way the spider web pattern can develop. If that's the case, a new display is in order, and will cost as much if not more that a new 42".

A spider is on the inside of the screen. how do I open the tv open to get the spider out and clean the inside of screen and lenses?

First gather your needed items: screwdriver and a helper.

The screen is mounted to the enclosure of the TV by hanging on tabs mounted on the enclosure inside behind the screen. The screen simply lifts off after removing it's set screws at the bottom of the screen behind the big plastic piece that is below the entire screen.

1) Remove the speaker covers (grills).
2) Locate and remove the screws that hold the plastic piece onto the enclosure (8-12).
3) Remove the plastic cover and you will see the set screws holding the screen.
4) Remove the screws (2-4).
5) Use your helper as your screen is really big for most average sized people and lift the screen including the plastic bezel up and away from the enclosure.

Ensure that you have a secure area to set the screen as it will be large, heavy but yet very delicate. Also, do not clean anything unless you know for sure that you need to as sometimes just by touching things they get misaligned or break. This means but is not limited to: mirror, lenses & the screen.

When reinstalling the screen ensure that you hang the screen back onto all of the tabs or the picture will be blurry.

Good Luck!

Take off screen on hdtv misubishi 62628. the screen has a spider web behind it and i want to clean it out

To remove the spiderwebs, you don't need to take the whole thing off. You just need to remove the screws around the screen frame (top and sides). The screen frame and mirror cover can be separated several inches with ease. You just need to use a flexible duster, one of those electro-static attracting numbers would be great, to clean the web out. Be careful not to disrupt the rear, large mirror and don't scratch the screen. Good luck.
