Re: Removal of protective front glass

Is this Plastic / Plexi-Glass screen even required?  Or is it just a safety feature to protect the actual tv screen behind the plastic one?

Philips DPTV 310, 60PP935217 We got this tv. As it was brought, they took out the front glass to transport. Question is. There are 2 glasses. Wich glass, in wich order, and which side has to be Built

The pair taped together usually are the inner and it is possible to put in backwards----should have marked this with masking tape before removal which is rarely needed to transport this set---cover with heavy quilt and face forward in a pickup etc so wind does not **** screens out.

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.

It has a spider web inside the screen and I need to know how to clean it because it is directly in the center of the screen

The best way to get at it is through removal of the front screen. Start by removing the front speaker grill-should just pull off (snap fitted). Then remove the front control panel (4screws). Next remove 4 screws from bottom of front of screen- the screen should ten just pull off -also snap fit- Make sure the set is unplugged before you begin- Once the screen is off you can also clean the lenses and the mirror (if glass) use a soft damp cloth.

Looks like dust behind front glass on phillips 46pp8621

The only way to remove the dust and or spider webs from that area is to remove the front bezel assembly and separate the protection screen, it's better to leave a svc. co. do this because the two screens behind that are very expensive. Hope this helps..

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

I need to replace my panasonic plasma screen model; th-42px70b

I don't have a listing for your exact model, but the front glass for a similar model runs about $325. Is the front protective glass broken or is the LCD panel itself broken. If the LCD panel is damaged then you are looking at over $1000 for the replacement.

Front panel removal instructions for

You have to remove the back bottom skirt from television in order to get to the screws for the front bottom panel. When the front bottom panel is removed there will be more screws visible, for front screen. After an afternoon of trying to get it apart, just to clean the mirror on ours, we finally got it.
