The plexi glass if a "special formulation" and costs around $350 if available!. I would go to some repair shops and see if they have old junker sets (city dump) that you can get the screen and if you have to cut it to size.. Cheap fix...
please rate!

I need to replace the dust cover on my Hitachi 53SDX01B


the problem here is Hitachi usually if it still has it sells all three screens as a unit---expensive.

You may want to search with GOOGLE the internet as some companies sell replacement "protective" screen replacements.

I have even seen one time someone found a piece of plexi-glass and had it cut to the exact size and thickness for a replacement.

Where can I get a replacement plactic screen cover


This set has 3 screens---the outer one is really only for glare--clear plexigalss--no longer available from Sony.

Sony 4-070-602-01
SCREEN, FRESNEL Sony 4-064-343-11
SCREEN, LENTICULAR Sony 4-058-894-11
SCREEN, PROTECTION (CONTRAST)Outer one is (Contrast) the other two inner ones are showing as available and about 180 each.

You would have to either have someone dismantle or do it yourself---most of these sets you have to remove all three screens from the rear of the set---then remove the outer contrast one if it is scratched or cracked--

If you get it out and measure it: It is possible you may be able to find a company who can cut you a plexi-glass piece to replace it with--lots of work to do this and you have to use extreme care when you remove the two inner screens--easy to damage them---Usually the inner two are taped along all the edges to keep dust etc from getting between them and the front one is a short distance forward of them.

The front protective screen is really only there for glare and to protect the inner screens from damage---I have seen people who had a cracked outer one just dismantle and remove that one---put the others back and use the set that way---have to be careful as the inner screens are easy to scratch or damage with the outer one removed.

Also---I have seen several where someone removed the outer one and got a piece of plexi glass big enough to put on the outside of the front of the set---secured all around the edges with velcro--does not look as good as the original but prevents glare and protects the inner screens.

Broken protective plexiglass ...


it is not tecomended that you remove this especally around children. i say this but i personally have one like that but i have no children. the other reson is the screens are easy damaged and they are 250 to replace. You can get another front plexi these are known as the supersheild. or if you can find the right size plexi glass it might find another option. It can be watched but like i said it will just lead to more problems without plexi

How do I remove the outer protective screen on my Mitsubishi WS-55315?


There are trim pieces around the edges that can be removed by sliding a knife underneath and lightly prying. They should remove fairly easily, don't force them as they may break. Use the knife on the cabinet side and pry toward the center of the screen.

The tear on the inner screen may be best left as is.

lexan would be better than plexi as it is tougher, but try to get anti-glare if possible. Anti-glare plexi would be better than regular lexan.

Panasonic HDTV 1080i Screen


Usualy Panasonic have 3 layers on the screen. From inside to outside is: fresnel, lenticular and protective. If only the one from outside is broken don't wory. It;s just protective and the film it's just a filter to improve the black level. You can use it like that but be carrefull because the lenticular it's not protected anymore and if you scrach it ... And do not try to clean it with anything else just dry rag.
