Question about Mitsubishi TS-5045 50" Rear Projection Television

Broken lenticular screen

The lenticular screen for my TV is in many pieces and needs to be replaced. I have been looking around for replacements and haven't had any success. Is it possible to use a lenticular screen from a different company without any loss in picture quality? Do you have any suggestions about finding a replacement?

Re: Broken lenticular screen

I agree with you chipjenn. I too call all the repair shops around our area and even nearby county but with no sucess. I have a hatchi 50UX22B projection TV. The lenticular was cut in the middle and someone decided to removed it. Very big mistake. Everything works, you can still watch TV by the picture is not that clear beacuse of the colors not aligning. If some one could hel us find where to get lenticular, please post it. Greatly appreciate it.

Re: Broken lenticular screen

I have been looking around for one myself. And have actually resorted to calling all of the "Mom&Pop" repair shops in town to see if they have one in the backroom or something. The problem is that most of the finds you get for lenticular on the web have to do with advertising signs and baseball cards. These lenticular sheets are only similar in how they feel to the touch. The lenticular lense on a rear projection tv actually blocks the image behind it and diffuses the light at specific angles. It is also very likely the specific manufacturers used slightly different pitches in the viewing angle, so that you have to replace it with their screen. I will definately continue to watch this posting because I need one as well.

Mitsubishi hdtv 1080 ws-a65 screen broke need replacement

there are 2 functionality screens and 1 screen protector (on some)
front screen = lenticular
back screen = fresnel
very front screen = screen protector (you can replace w plexiglass)

the fresnel and lenticular are very specific.. contact your local repair center for a new one. you can cut them from old screens but have to do just right (fresnel is a lens type - pic will be distorted if off center)

maybe find a old junker tv to pull screens from because new ones are about $100 a piece

my son cracked our screen protector and instead of paying two or three hundred dollars to replace it we had plexy glass cut at Lowes and put velcro striping around the edges and looked as good as the original and has held up great for five years now.

I need to replace a broken screen on my sony kf 50we610

Hi drdoolittle,

Some screens have labels, so place them so the labels are upright and tward the front of the TV.

The outside screen is the lenticular screen. The black vertical lined side is outside. The fresnel screen has very fine circular lines in it. You can find them by feeling them. This goes against the lenticular back side of the screen. the fesnel has a flat side that is the back. It will be tward the mirror. If the mirror has two shiny sides, then it should be placed with the mirror side out. You can tell this by placing your finger tip on the mirror. If the finger nail meets a fingernail, then this is the mirrored side. Install this side tward the front.

Try to keep dust from between the screens. Check by looking through the screens before you put the in the frame. Then check them again after you put them in the frame.

Wear latex gloves to keep finger prints away.

Clean back of screen assembly and install the screen on the TV.

You can now watch the TV.

Cheers, CrazyLee

It's pretty simple repair.  Pull bezel, unscrew braces around edges and swap screen out.  Where did you find the lenticular at?  I have the same TV and can't find the part online.
