Cleaning lenses/lamps on mitsubishi VS-60805

I have a Mitsubishi VS-60805 RP TV and would like to know if there is an easy way to clean dust etc from the projection lenses as well as from the reflection mirror? Years ago I had a Sony RP TV and it was real easy to remove the screen and clean the lenses. Any ideas/instructions on how to do this on the Mitsubishy would be appreciated. My e-mail is

    my TV is a 73" mitsubishi (WS-73905) How do I clean the lenses/lamps?

  • Anonymous Mar 30, 2014

    I have had this DLP TV for 8+ years and have had to replace the lamp several times. Lately the TV is getting real dim so I replace the lamp as precaution with my backup lamp but there was no improvement. Could there be a dust build up inside the TV that I can clean? I am pretty handy and comfortable with these types of jobs.

A can of compressed air might do the trick. If dirt is stuch, I'd suggest useing the same chemicals/cloths/etc you would use for cleaning camera lenses. Check at your local photo store.

Just make sure the lenses aren't hot when you apply cold and/or flamable chemicals.

I am replacing the bulb in my three year old DLP television. The replacement is straight forward. I wanted to know if there is any preventative maintenance I should do to the mirrors, lenses, or cleaning...

No. Just keep you house clean and vacuum often . Keeping dust and dirt to a minimum is the best way of keeping the fans in the tv from drawing that dust and dirt into the tv. Also cigarette smoke will destroy this type of tv. If you ever get a dark spot in the picture it may be dust on the lense. You can dust the lense with only a microfiber rag.

Mitsubishi VS-60805 Rear Projection won't operate in HD mode with Cable Box

Since this is an older first generation (1999) HD TV it may not be compatible with newer HDTV receivers because the standards back then were different - Make sure the HD cable box is plugged into the HD component inputs on the back of the TV (not the DVD inputs) and that the menu setting on the TV is set to DTV (not RGB) video. This TV will only accept 480i and 480p signals on the DVD input. Also the HDTV input will only accept 480i,480p and 1080i (it will not work with a 720p signal,make sure your cable box is not set to that mode)

We have a Mitsubishi VS-50VA2 projection tv. The picture is very dim and the color is faded. Even after adjusting the brightness to the max, it is still dim. What do I need to do to fix this?

you need to clean the dust off lamps and the guns, if you don't know how. i can walk you thru it. but i would suggest having a repair shop do a full cleaning.

Mitsubishi wd 62527 has very dark picture changed

Clean the small front projection mirror. That mirror can get dust on it and will cause the projected image to appear dull and dim and cleaning that mirror will usually restore the brightness and crisp details in the image.

The mitsubishi model vs-60805 tv will provide air channels off of cable hook-up, but does not provide cable channels. What needs to be done to recieve cable channels? The menu does not provide an apparent...

Mitsubishi VS-60805 is 1999 model tv and unable to receive digital cable channels because it is equipped with analog tuner that can not receive cable channels because it is almost 11 years old.
You need to hook Cable Box in AV input of tv, plug digital cable in cable box and get digital cable channels in tv. Cable box has its own remote control and inbuilt digital tuner to receive all digital cable channels and widely available in Store, Radio Shake, etc.
Let me know if you have additional question.

No picture but sound

I had the same problem with the same model. If you pull the cover off the speakers in the front , then the small black panel. looking from the front past your lamps are the 3 main boards, the r/h board has wire jumpers connecting to the center board. The set that is closest to you had a bad/loose/corroded connection on mine. All I did was resecure connection(try moving them with your fingertip) and turn TV on and check.

as i previously posted, my picture was dim, muddy looking after replacing lamp with osram lamp. i fixed mine by taking the screen off and cleaning the small mirror. it had a thick layer of dust on it, cleaned with a microfiber cloth. no water, no glass cleaners. i also used a very fine new small paint brush and dusted the projector lens which also had a dust film. brightness, contrast and clarity returned!
