Question about Hitachi 51F500 51" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
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?
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
