You will need to order one for your set through a tv repair shop or from the company that makes the tv.

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.

How do i clean mirror on a sony KP-57ws520


Fairly easy to do.

Follow these steps:
1) Unplug the TV
2) Remove the lower access panel (the pressboard with all the holes in it) by removing the screws holding it in place. (This is the panel where where your connections are made)

3) Remove all the screws on the big black shroud on the back that actually holds to mirror. There are probably about 15 screws.

4) gently lift the panel off and set in on the floor or table where you can clean the mirror. (remember the mirror is attached to the back side of it) I usually put in on the floor.

5) clean the mirror with glass cleaner or non-streaking solution.

Reverse the steps above to re-assemble.

Need to know how to install a rear projector mirror


This is a major task. You will need to remove the back cover on the bottom of the set and then the entire back of the upper portion of the set to gain access to the mirror. Did you get a replacment mirror from a Zenith vendor?

Let me know if you need more help.

Dull/cloudy picture


If the set is 4-5 years old, it probably has dust on the lenses and mirror.
This can cause a murky picture.
If you can remove the front screen assembly, you can gain access to the lenses and mirror. Clean with a dry micro-fiber cloth very gently.
Hope this helps,
Dan

I have a 5 year old RCA 61LPW42 HD DLP television. A few months ago a small dark shadow appeared in the upper left corner of the screen. Over time it has creeped down and become larger. Still starting...


It's the light tunnel. The tunnel is a square tube made up of 4 mirrors glued together.

It looks like this from the side: |_| (with a piece on top too.)
When the glue breaks down, it shifts inside the little mirror holder. The shifted mirrors looks like this /_/ what you are seeing is the shadow of the tilted mirror tunnel.
ON the RCA's there's not a good fix.

RCA's response:
"Ok, well sadly they do not offer the light tunnel anymore, which is what you need. Sadly you would be rendered to get a whole new light engine assembly. That would be the D.N.D module, light tunnel,color wheel,optic spanner, and oci. mirror. Your best bet would be to search ebay for a broken engine and replace it that ways."

That is the ONLY response I got from them.

I took the set apart and found the 4 tiny mirrors. I will be attempting to epoxy them together. (The set is dead anyway, why not try?)
