Fluid in len leaks out

My husband take off the back part of our Sony projection tv to clean. He took off the mirror and then the red len. Once the len be taken off, fluid came out. Is there any danger for keeping to use the tv and is there anything we have to do to fix the leakage (he clean up the leakage though, but the fluid once been under the len is gone )?

Hello grace11112,

First I have to say that the fluid is what keeps the tube cool, if you use the TV without replacing the fluid, the tube will eventually burn out. Now the fluid has to be replaced, I would suggest that you have a qualified TV technician do this. The fix for this problem is to reinstall the seals on the tube refill the coolant, and reinstall the tube. Coolant can be purchased from the manufacture or from a parts supply store.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Red area/red line on tv screen


Odds are it is your convergence chips! If you have any colors out of alignment, thats what it is. Also if you had a speaker too close to the Tv it can cause colors to shift. There should only be 1 mirror. IT would have NOTHING to do with your problem. If you are only have problems with the red, just replace the one STK chip. They run about $20-30 on ebay. $5-10 if you buy china made. Usually the cheap ones dont get along with sony.

I need to clean mirror


Most rear projection sets the screen will pop off the front. Usually a couple of hidden catches. Get another person for this.
Once off you can clean the mirror but not the inside of the screen.
Unplug tv first

PIONEER ELITE PRO730HD 64in Red lens lower assmbly losing fluid


You'll need to replace the red CRT . The coolant chamber of the original tube has been compromised. Hopefully, none of the fluid( ethylene glycal) has leaked onto the main chassis of the TV.

Can't see clearly the picture and alot of line


Is it the kind with the green, red, blue tubes? If so just take the back off and clean the mirror and clean the tubes with a lens cleaning cloth, also look down in the tubes with the set on ( BE CAREFUL ) if you see what looks like dirt inside of any of them then the cooling fluid can be changed in them. It is a bacteria ( i think ) that grows in the fluid but no the red color tube. I paid $80 bucks to get the refilled and took the tubes out myself, dont let someone charge you $400 to do the job.

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.
