With a conventional projection type screen on CRT type televisions this is not a problem,but with the newer DLP type screens the fiber of the Fresnal screen acts like a spounge and soaks up any liquid introduced.If you try to clean it it will smear and make it worse.You can remove the screen assy an clean it with Windex but allow it to dry properly.I do not see a problem with cleaning this screen,but make sure you put the screens back the way they were.I must also note that it is no easy task removing this particular screen assy.Good luck

Can I get the screen clear if I have used the wrong cleaner


Short answer is no, if the screen is plastic and the chemical attacks the plastic. If it is too much liquid and it seeps between any layers, it could evaporate over time, but you will likely have a noticeable dry stain forever.

For you and everyone reading this, never spray or apply any liquid to any TV, monitor, laptop, or cell phone screen directly, I think it says that in the owners manual. Always apply a light amount of TV screen cleaner spray to a microfiber cloth and then lightly clean the screen. DO NOT use anything with alcohol, ammonia, glass cleaner types, baby wipes, pre-moistened wipes of any type unless it specifically states it's for LCD monitors and TV's. If you or the manufacturer apply more cleaner to the wipe or cloth than necessary, blot excess cleaner with a dry paper towel so that the liquid doesn't run or drip when applied to the screen during cleaning.

Picture has white strip down center,mostly black on rest of screen.child sprayed febreeze on screen,felt wetness on bottom of tv


Hi Lance,
This is the sad story of many a Flat Panel TV owners. You must never spray any liquid on the screen because it seeps through the frame, reaches the delicate electronics inside and causes permanent damage. Please let the TV dry up in the sun for some hours and see if there is any improvement. If it does not work I am afraid the damage is permanent. Last resort, you can ask some local Tech to open and try cleaning the seepage.
Good Luck.

Mitsubishi TV Screen Water Stain Problem


You can use warm water and a soft cloth to try and clean it, but it will probably leave some evidence that liquid existed between the two layers at some point. Mitsubishi will deal screens directly to their customers if you ask nice enough and are willing to install yourself.

Wrong Chemical Cleaner on 60 inch DLP TV


Hi There,

Unfortunately, I think you may be out of luck. If you spray a screen directly you are taking a chance at killing your TV. You're actually pretty lucky that it still works. Some chemicals can eat right through or seep through edges and corners and ruin the life of your TV. I am not sure if Mr Clean contains alcohol, but that is the last thing you want on any screen. I would suggest trying to clean it off with an alcohol free solution for HDTV screens only or calling Mitsubishi immediately and see what they have to say.. Here is a similar product for what I am talking about:

Good Luck and Happy Holidays..

How can I get permanent black ink out of a white pair of pants?


Try spraying with hair spray or another spray product that won't stain. You are not using the product. The propellant is a good solvent. Hair spray and Lysol are my favorites as they don't seem to stain. RIT dye color remover may also work. If it is a large area your are probably out of luck.

Liquid under screen


You need to take the screen off the front. You will find the screen comes away from the frame and seperates into two sheets. The liquid is seeping inbetween the two. If you clean it with Meths it should sort it without marking it.
