Toshiba 52" Rear Projection- Shadowing

My son's got a hold of the Windex and decided to clean my TV screen. In the process, some of the liquid ran down the sreen and now I'm getting some weird shadows on the screen. I'm still able to see the picture, but there are these darker areas. Any advice?

Re: Toshiba 52" Rear Projection- Shadowing

Hallo tyco you can remove the screen and clean the difuser make sure the same way you strip it put it back the same way also use a furniture polish like (mr min) with a soft cloth.i have worked in arcades around the world and have cleaned many of these screens and never had a problem. pack the screens on a clean none scratch surface also, and work careful with it support the plastic and lie it down when you clean it.

Liquid under screen on mitsudishi dlp tv

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

Moisture behind screen

It is difficult to clean/remove the screens. Best case senario, it will dry up leaving little to no water mark. There are three screens, liquid gets between them and it sucks it in. Disassembly and cleaning will fix, but the screens are very fragile and cannot be wiped without potential damage. Any dust, dirt between them will show in the picture. Proceed at your own risk.

Water behind screen

Did you just sell your TV? Because if you did, I'm probably the one who just bought it. Paid $200. Anyways, if not, I did fix it. I dismantled the TV, starting with the bottom. Pull off the speaker cover then unscrew everything on the bottom in order to loosen the top screen portion. Unscrew the top screen and pull it off slowly, disconnecting the one wire that connects it to the rest of the TV. Once the screen is off, you can seperate from the frame it by unscrewing it. I then cleaned both screens (there are two layers) with distilled water and a microfiber cloth. You might be able to use other cleaning methods but I recommend plenty of water and then a non abrasive cloth. Make sure it's clean and dry before putting it back up. Picture is like new and I love it!

Liquid leaked into tv

Hi Tracy,
I have the sweetest grandchildren and tey are always willing to help also, so we have to love the children for all their wonderful help. ( NOT !!! ) But lets not send your son to the adoption web sight just yet. I'll start by letting you know ( in a sigh of releif for you ) that your tv is not damaged forever, although, when the windex drys, you will probably see a dirt stain on the screen, since the windex probably did it's job and cleaned the dirt off, unfortunatly the residue is between the screens. You have 2 layer of plastic screens for your TV. One is a lexan shield and the other is a riffled substance plastic. To seperate the two of them, you need to take the front of the TV off, normally by removing screws from the inside of the TV ( this can be a tricky job and I really suggest you have a pro do it if you haven't worked on TV's in the past ). If you do it, be extra careful not to break the screen or sheild after removing as they can get a bit pricey. When you take them out, they will seperate ( one lays on top of the other, no real trick to them ) and then just grab your windex ( the remains of the bottle that your son left you ) and clean them like you would glass. Of course after you clean the screens, replace them in the oppisite proceedure of taking them apart and wella, all is ok again and junior remians a loving and helpful son. smiling. I hope this helped. Nice day.
