Question about GE 46GW945 46" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

TV Screen My daughter sprayed the TV with a spray bottle and now the screen is black in the corners. I tried to take it off to wipe down the inside but I can't figure out how to get it off. I have taken out all the screws that I can find but it's still somehow connected towards the bottom. I think the model is Mitsubishi WD-62531.

Re: TV Screen

There should be 2 to 4 screws, depending on the model, to take out on the bottom of the screen assembly, then you lift the entire screen up and pull it out towards you. Good Luck

Spot in tv

The spot may be from debris inside the chamber of the TV box. A bug, dust speck, or other material can attach to the inside screen or on a color tube inside of the unit. Do not touch the inside of the Front Screen as it has a special coating and you could damage the screen permanently. Avoid washing with water or sprays that can enter the frame of the screen. Use a cloth with cleaner applied to it and wipe clean, then dry with a soft rag or paper towel.

I did something wrong.....

Windex is not the best cleaner. Bed and Bath Beyond has a very good NON-Streak class cleaner that I tell my customers to use. The best solution is NOT to Spray directly onto the TV Screen. Remember the glass is only delivering the picture from an RGB projection unit sitting inside the enclosure. It is not the electronic projector and the screen is separate. It can be replaced if damaged; however I believe it is only streaked and needs proper cleansing. If you get the new cleaner, spray the solution onto a soft cloth and wipe the exterior screen. Promptly wipe it dry and if you need to do this a few times, eventually you will get the glass clear and enjoy the show.

I cleaned my projection panasonic magnavox tv with windex, not there are streaks coming up from the bottom of the screen followed by black spots, did i damage it completely, should i turn it off, and let...

Never spray directly on a screen. If the solution seeps into the underside (back etched side of the glass) it could damage the surface. You may have to get to the inside from the rear projection area or lift of the front glass screen and remove it completely. Usually the Rear surface of the screen is etched and can be wiped clean. Go to Bed Bath and get a good streak less windows cleaner. Spray it on a soft cloth and wipe the front and/or back glass. Wipe dry with a CLOTH, not a paper towel, and when dry use a flash light to see any streaks or blemishes left behind. Clean again is necessary. Do not apply pressure, gently clean and try not to cause scratches as they show up when the projection device flashes the image on the glass portion. Put it all back they way it was and enjoy.

My child sprayed something on the screen of the tv and now it has a huge black spot in the corner of the tv. I was wondring if there was a way that you can take off the front screen to wipe it out.

Yes the screens do come off so you can clean in between the layers. But a service manual is reccommended to remove the assembly. But I will post the proceedure below for you.slinteriors_8.jpgslinteriors_9.jpg

Children sprayed water on 46" lcd TV, and it looks

Oh dear! I would check your household insurance if it was an accident, just in case a replacement is required.
Most items that get wet rarely recover without problems.
The water should not be able to get into the screen as it is a sealed. If the water has not entered the TV, you may get away with wiping the screen with an almost dry cloth that has dilute detergent on it, (washing up liquid and warm water is fine). That will remove the streaks.
Good luck!

Mitsubishi tv model wt 46809

Good Day, sam;
Sam it depends on "smudge".
If it's an oily type; then a mild soap, like dawn, on damp, warm soft cotton type cloth may remove it.
There are products found in most large best buy, circuit stores that sell a screen cleaner. It's sold in a small spay bottle, about 2-3 ounces. Always spray onto cloth NOT screen. Always wipe/clean with up & down strokes, NOT side to side or at an angle.
If the screen is smudged after attempts of trying to 'cleanning' a scratch, then only replacing the screen will fixya problem, cost will be in the range of $100.00-$250.00.
Good Luck, hope this was helpful, big IRISH.

Tv and gum

get a bottle of canned air, about 10 bucks. hold it upside down, and spray the liquid on the gum(despite what the directions tell you to do). gently pell off from one side of the gum, constantly spraying underneath the gum so it stays frozen. follow up with windex, or a normal LCD screen cleaner. Be careful not to get the liquid on your skin, as it can cause 3rd degree burns, and in worst cases, FROSTBITE. Trust me I know(1 Freshmen + 1 bottle canned air X 1 senior = pain for both parties) What this does, is freeze the sugar molecules in the gum from contracting when it is pulled by freezing them to a near sub zero temperature.
