To make a long story short a week later we have our TV back and the screen is spotless. The problem nicotine build up. This is not covered under warrenty we are told and the build up was on the inside of the screen..My problem we are not prepared to have this screen taken apart every 2 months for cleaning. We need to know how to clean the inside ourselves. Thank you all help in advance.

I see two possiblites your flyback tranformer has failed and with it your horzital output transitor has shorted. most technicians can replace these. IS the spark in the front or back of tv. if it is in the front this is a tube. as a tech i would first identify what compnents are sparking. also this could be a capacitor shorting cause a burnt curcit board

Rca scenium 50 inch dlp. i now have 3 black blotches in the screen. they look like giant finger print smudges. very noticable on light colored screen.

You have a problem in the light engine portion of the set. Somewhere in the optics. It could also be a build up of dust or a foreign substance. Have a repair shop give it a good cleaning inside. You may want to pull the bulb and make sure there is no foggy places inside of it. Thanks

Green Screen, No Sound, Shuts off after 10 seconds

Almost certainly the green picture tube is shorted. This is a very expensive repair; probably not worth doing.

How to clean inside of screen?

Your tv has two screens on it. The outter screen and the inner screen. The outter screen has a frame around it held on by clips. You can remove this outter screen by gently prying it from the tv. There is a small gape between the outter screen and the tv casing. When prying the outter screen be carefull not to dsanage the tv case or the outter screen frame. Take note of the location of each clips because you will need thses to put the outter screen back on. Clean with a good gentle screen cleaner, (Do Not Use Windex). Philips screen cleaning gel for plasma & LCD works very good. Install the outter screen back on the tv by making sure the clips line up and use light pressure to snap it back in place. Do Not Hit Outter Screen To Force Clips Into Place.. I do this on my tv about once every 6 months or so.
