Re: Spider on screen
You must remove the top back cover, but be careful and handle it gently because the mirror is attached to the inside of that cover. When the cover is removed you will be able to clear out any spiders, spiderwebs and dust and be sure to clean the 3 lenses on top of the 3 picture tubes.

Pardon me but do you mean the screen has spider web looking patterns all over it? Or are you saying that spiders have crawled into your set and spun webs to catch flies?
If you have a spider web pattern problem then something has impacted your television screen and it is broken. You can check and see if your homeowner's insurance covers this, contact a service provider to see if they want to buy the television for its parts, and contact Mitsubishi to see if they offer a discount or pro rated rate on a new or refurbished television for when things like this happen.
If the problem is that you have spiders in your television I do not recommend vacuuming it out. I have seen people's televisions go out after they attempt to remove dust and webs that way. In this instance I also recommend contacting a servicer and the manufacturer.
There are two ways to do this---the hard way which is to remove the entire front screen OR
What I do is (with the set unplugged) remove the back cover of the set; you should see the three large black lens.
Most of these sets there will be enough room to get a swiffer duster up inside to gently catch and remove all the spider webs. If there is not enough room let me know and I will tell you how to remove the front screen.
Also---if you can see those large black lens---clean the dust off of them with a lens cloth or paper towel with glass cleaner sprayed on the towel.
If you can reach the webs from the back do not exert pressure when you wipe the inside of the screens---easy to scratch them.
If you have questions let me know BEFORE you attempt this.
If this helped or told you something you did not know rate this solution as very helpful as I do this here for free.
Well you can allways wait until she drops dead but otherwise youll have to take the front lenses off.Remove the screws along the edge a the top and sides at the rear you may also have to pull the front cover (usually plugged in) this is best done with two persons ,one to unscrew and the other to hold the lenses.once the screws are remove you may have to slide up the ***`y.you may want to clean the lenses and miror while your at it. have fun
Unplug tv first Usually you can pop the front screen off the set. There may be two hidden catches depending on the model. You may want to use two people for this. Once the screen is off removed the spider web and clean the back mirror with some windex, don't clean the inside of screen with any cleaner. Replace carefully the screen making sure it clicks back correctly
I know my response is a while after you asked, but to clean the inside of the tv case is pretty simple.
Remove the bottom speaker cover...on this model you just pull it off. There is no clips or screws.
Once the speaker cover is off you will see the bottom of the screen, there is 4-5 screws on the bottom on each side....I think 4 in the gray plastic and 1 in a black metal strap. With all of those screws out pull out SLIGHTLY on the screen and push up. The top is held in with a down force clamp and you are just popping it out of that....It will pop back in once you are done.
Now clean the back side of the screen, the mirror and CAREFULLY dust off the lenses. I myself did not want to use any cleaners (to avoid streaking) so I used a new microfiber dusting cloth. My picture became brighter and the "crack" that I thought I had was just a dust web....
removal of the screen on this unit is not to difficult. to remove the screen you will need a t20 bit. the torx 20 screws on the back side of screen then the torx screws on front panel. be carefull that screen is easy scratched.
Yes, I have seen this many times. Usually the best way is to remove the upper back cover and clean out the spider webs with a soft, dry cloth, but be careful because the mirror is mounted to the inside of the cover.
I have a panasonic 53 inch and have had the same problem on numerous occasions. I removed the backing of the television, stuck my vaccuum cleaner hose inside the tv and sucked out the spider and the web.
