Broke mpthe mirror in my WS-55313 Mitsubishi projection tv while moving it. Just wondering how much it will cost to get a new one. Is less than 100 dollars reasonable? We dropped it while moving it and the...

A few notes:

First if the mirror which hangs at a angle facing the screens comes apart it can come forward and smash the inner screen.

The best way to proceed is remove the entire front screen frame:

remove speaker grill on front under the screen (if cloth it should pull out in one piece (a few are two piece).

With it removed look under the bottom front edge of the screen unit--left to right there are several identical screws and you have to remove those.

If the front controls (vary by cabinet style) are in the bottom front of the screen unit there will be wires from them hanging down--should be an inspection plate dead center behind where the grill was.

follow the wires from the front control board down with the inspection plate removed and locate the one or two inline plugs and disconnect them (they pull apart and are marked)

With the screws at bottom of screen frame removed and the keyboard free pull out the frame from bottom and slid up about 4-6 inches the entire frame with the screens still in it.

Do not when you do this twist the frame as you can pop the screens right out.

Set the frame and screens to one side making sure not against the screens and avoid touching the inside screen inside the frame.

You should now be able to see the mirror clearly, be careful if cracked as when you release the screws that hold it in it may come apart and use gloves---broken mirrors are very sharp.

Mirror should if you see the plastic and wood slots for it not be too hard to remove and replace. Vac out any small glass as light from the set inside can reflect onto the new mirror or even the inside of the inner screen and be seen in the picture.

You almost certainly are going to have to get the mirror from Mitsubishi---price it with shipping but since its a 55 inch mirror almost any mitsubishi mirror that size will work perfectly--some shops save them....hint.

Most of those mirrors were at or over 100 dollars and a few sites on the net sell replacements in case Mitsubishi is too high.

Hope this helps and let me know if need advice.

There seems to be dust behind the screen panel i live on a gravel road is there a way to clean the screen or what do i do

What you have to do is remove the front screen assembly by removing the screws loacted at the bottom of the screen frame just under the frame lip. Lift the screen assembly up from the bottom to disengage the holder clips at the top and set the screen assembly to the side. On the inside of the screen, the part that faces the projection mirror assembly you can use some Windex and paper towels to clean the surface. On the outside do not use Windex as this will breakdown the protective finish used on the viewing side of the screen. To clean the viewing side, use a special cleaner also used to clean computer display screens. Re-install the screen assembly and you are done.

The protective screen cover to our Hitachi model 51uwx20b is cracked. (collided with a Wii controller!) I know I can replace the plexiglass but do not know how to remove the broken one. Can someone give me...

Most of the Hitachi's have to be removed from the front; remove the speaker grill assembly(it usually pulls off and is held in place with plastic pegs. Once it is removed locate at the bottom edge of the screen; remove several screws(left to right) that secure it. Most of these frames are snapped in--held in place and you need to start on the lower left and then right side to pull them free---some are in very tight---take your time and pull from bottom first and then sides--a few also have a notch on top which means when the bottom and sides are free you have to lift the frame up and out a bit to get the entire unit free. They go back the same way(top edge first) and if you find the inside of the frame has some metal posts you need to tap the frame back once it is in position.

I do this here for free so if this helps you give me a vote here. If you have questions let me know here.

I need to remove screen protector on my hitachi 65" big screen tv

There is a black plastic strip that fits into the groove at the top of the frame holding the protector and front screen. Pull that down and out (you might need to pry a little to get it started). The attached picture shows the strip partially pulled out at the right edge (photo depicts the top right of a 58K - with a wood cabinet).
Once this strip is removed, you should be able to see a gap (~2mm) between the top of the protector and the frame. Pull the middle of the protector toward you (you may need to hook it with something like a chrochet hook to get it out to where you can get a finger on it). Pull out one side of the protector, then work it loose fromt he bottom. (If it is stubborn, you may have to loosen the bottom frame. Take of the speaker grill, then unscrew the screw on the bottom of the surround for the control panel and pop the surround out. Then there are 3 screws that hold the cabinet frame {might me different for the 58B} and beneath that, 3 screws that hold the bottom of the inside frame. Once those are removed, you should be able to flex the inside frame enough to loosen the protector.)

Installation is the reverse. There are two grooves (at least on my set), and the protector goes in the rear groove(!) (same as the screen itself - first time I tried to put it in the unused groove closer to the front of the screen, and that iddn't work). The black plastic retainer strip goes in the front groove.

How to disassemble an old Hitachi projection TV (model 53sbx59b)

To remove the protection screen and lens from my Hitachi model 53SDX89BA:
1) Remove the speaker cover from the bottom. It is attached by velcro.
2) Remove the 4 screws on 4 plastic tabs on the bottom of the screen frame.
3) Remove the 4 screws on the 4 metal tabs on the bottom beneath the screen frame.
4) Pry the bottom corners loose with a wide blade screw driver and work both sides of the screen frame away from the case from the bottom up. CAUTION: The top does not snap away as the sides do. When the sides are loose let the screen frame hang down vertical and lift the screen frame straight up.
5) The protection screen and the lens will come off together.

When reinstalling the screen frame perform the steps in reverse. Be careful when resnapping the frame back onto the case - there are two small wooden support blocks on the bottom. Don't try to force the frame back on until you are sure the bottom of the frame clears these block. You may find it easier just to remove them temporarily until the frame is reattached.
