Hitachi 51F500 Cleaning

I just got a 5 yeear old 51F500 and would like to clean the projector lenses and back side of the screen.  How do I get at them.  I opened the lower back half and blew it out, but see no way to get at the back side of the screen or projector.  Does the screen come off?  Also I am very good with electronics.  Is there some settings other than what is in the onscreen menu I can do to clean up the image?
Thanks

To clean:
1) Remove front bottom cover - pull outward
2) Remove 8 screws at bottom of screen, slide screen upward to remove
Do not touch any of the electrical components, they can store energy and are also sensitive to static.
3) Clean inside of screen with light cleaner
4) Dry clean lenses with non-abrasive DRY cloth - no cleaners
5) Vacuum any remaining dust or cobwebs inside cabinet
6) Install screen and trim and "test" it for a bit

The trim on the screen pops off and behind that trim are screws that hold the screen in place...once you remove the screen you can clean the lenses and the mirror and maybe get a cleaner clearer image

I can hear sound but no picture I have a Hitachi 55 inch


Back - light problem. Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis. http://electro-medical.blogspot.com/
To some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board [SMPS]. In such cases, the power supply board might need replacement. To some models sets, the back-light inverter and SMPS section circuit will be integrated at its main board itself. If so; the main board should be replaced. To some models of sets, all these section circuit will be integrated at its main board. If this is the case, you have to replace the main board.

When playing commercial DVD's, my DR-MV150B starts to stall. It stops with the picture on the televsion screen, but can't see the rest of the movie. Any thoughts? The disc does eject.


Try cleaning the laser with a bud, if not it's either the spindle motor or laser assembly,

Hi, the sound on my Hitachi switches off after midnight every night. I can get it back briefly if I switch it off/on then it goes again? Daytime it's ok & the Pic is fine! Any ideas?


I would go into Setup and timer/ clock. The sound might well be in off position. You should be able to change the clock to your eeds. Kolbrun
