Hi if the projection screen is dented ONLY, can it be repaired or does the entire screen need to be replaced?

When you say the projection screen, are you reffering to the cover screen ( lenticular) or the actual projection screen ( fresnal)

Both can be replaced.

Heres an order page where you can purchase the lenticular ( cover) screen

Scratch in sreen

By the looks of that picture, it's hard for me to believe that the scratch is not on the outside of the protective plexiglass screen. However, you can remove the protective screen w/o negative effect of the picture. In fact, it will probably reduce the glare from light on the screen. If, in fact, the scratch is still seen w/o the protective screen installed, then it is the lenticular screen that is scratched.
The lenticular screen is the one with the vertical grooves from top to bottom in it. The fresnal is the back screen that appears to have been lathed in a circular pattern.

Mitsubishi screen replacing

You must remove the front bezel and frame holder to replace the screen. You will usually see the screws holding the from from the rear of the unit. Once you get the frame off, take note of the way the old screen is installed. There is usually a label on one side near the bottom; the new screens must be installed with the label in the same location. The lenticular goes on the outside (facing the viewer) and the fresnel goes on the inside facing the mirror. You will be able to recognize the fresnel, it has a series of concentric circles that are raised on the sirface of the plastic Be sure to rate this solution.Thanks!

Replacing a screen on the mitusbishi

Hi NJ,

First, which screen do you need -
The lenticular screen is dark in color is rough and has ridges.
There is a fresnel screen behind it.
IF you have a screen protector that is smooth, clear and see through, it would be the very first screen you can see and feel.

If your TV is the square shaped, 4:3 ratio TV, Mitsubishi has probably stopped production on replacement lenticular screens. HOWEVER, we have a couple of those screens still in stock.

After you take the frame off, lay it on a table or put a sheet down on the floor before you lay the frame down. You may need to take the frame apart to get the lenticular screen out.

Hope that helps,

Yes, the screen can be replaced. The screen is comprised of 3 screens. The Fresnal Screen (inner screen), Lenticular Screen (middle screen), and the Protective Screen (outer screen). Please see below for links to these items.

Need all 3 to complete screen assembly.The only screen that is still available is the innermost screen, which is probably not the 1 you need. You will only be able to find the middle (lenticular) and outer (protective) screens from a distributor that has them in stock as no one will be able to order them from the manufacturer.

  1. Fresnal Screen
  2. Lenticular Screen (no longer available)
  3. Protective Screen (no longer available)

Panasonic HDTV 1080i Screen

Usualy Panasonic have 3 layers on the screen. From inside to outside is: fresnel, lenticular and protective. If only the one from outside is broken don't wory. It;s just protective and the film it's just a filter to improve the black level. You can use it like that but be carrefull because the lenticular it's not protected anymore and if you scrach it ... And do not try to clean it with anything else just dry rag.

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
