Sometimes on sony TV's on the sides you will have a door, that you can open with a screwdriver. if yours have it you might be able to dlean all that web from both sides, if not its a little bit more complex.

SOURCE: dirty screen but it is behind the outside screen.

The front screen with the frame does remove from the cabinet giving you access to the mirror and CRT lens. Remove the speaker grill,remove the four screws on the bottom of the frame, then working underneath a corner proceed to pop the rivets holding the frame to the cabinet. It will seem impossible at first because you have to use a lot of force to pop each one out.When reinstalling,a rubber mallet may help popping each rivet back in (I am not kidding when I say they are tight)

SOURCE: Spider web behind front of screen

First remove the speaker panel, no screws, it just pulls off. Then remove 8 screws, you will note the 4 other screws that are not attached to the screen itself, do not remove those. Then pull out a little from the bottom, not too much or you will break the screen then pull up. When I did it the left side came loose right away, but then I had to use a screw driver to pry out the right hand side. The sides are actually in a simple pressure slide, a little prying with the screw driver loosen up the sides. When you put it back together, you put the top rail in first, press in the sides and replace the screws. Job done and you saved yourself a lot of bucks.

To remove the spiderwebs, you don't need to take the whole thing off. You just need to remove the screws around the screen frame (top and sides). The screen frame and mirror cover can be separated several inches with ease. You just need to use a flexible duster, one of those electro-static attracting numbers would be great, to clean the web out. Be careful not to disrupt the rear, large mirror and don't scratch the screen. Good luck.

Scratched plastic screen protector


I have a rear projection TV that I thought had a scratch as well. Upon closer examination and several attempts to clean, I discovered that there was a spider web behind the screan in front of the color projectors. I carefully removed the screen and gently cleaned the spider web from the screen. Presto no more scratches.

Hope this is a viable solution for you as well.

Spider webs behind screen


Pardon me but do you mean the screen has spider web looking patterns all over it? Or are you saying that spiders have crawled into your set and spun webs to catch flies?

If you have a spider web pattern problem then something has impacted your television screen and it is broken. You can check and see if your homeowner's insurance covers this, contact a service provider to see if they want to buy the television for its parts, and contact Mitsubishi to see if they offer a discount or pro rated rate on a new or refurbished television for when things like this happen.

If the problem is that you have spiders in your television I do not recommend vacuuming it out. I have seen people's televisions go out after they attempt to remove dust and webs that way. In this instance I also recommend contacting a servicer and the manufacturer.

How do I dust inside the screen of a Rear projection TV?


Unplug tv first Usually you can pop the front screen off the set. There may be two hidden catches depending on the model. You may want to use two people for this. Once the screen is off removed the spider web and clean the back mirror with some windex, don't clean the inside of screen with any cleaner. Replace carefully the screen making sure it clicks back correctly

Hitachi 51UWX20B spider web like lines help


I know my response is a while after you asked, but to clean the inside of the tv case is pretty simple.

Remove the bottom speaker cover...on this model you just pull it off. There is no clips or screws.

Once the speaker cover is off you will see the bottom of the screen, there is 4-5 screws on the bottom on each side....I think 4 in the gray plastic and 1 in a black metal strap. With all of those screws out pull out SLIGHTLY on the screen and push up. The top is held in with a down force clamp and you are just popping it out of that....It will pop back in once you are done.

Now clean the back side of the screen, the mirror and CAREFULLY dust off the lenses. I myself did not want to use any cleaners (to avoid streaking) so I used a new microfiber dusting cloth. My picture became brighter and the "crack" that I thought I had was just a dust web....

Hope this helps and good luck

Spiderwebs under Screen, how do i clean it ?


Yes, I have seen this many times. Usually the best way is to remove the upper back cover and clean out the spider webs with a soft, dry cloth, but be careful because the mirror is mounted to the inside of the cover.

Sider webs


Here's my suggestion: I have a 55" Philips HDTV and I live in an area known for excessive dust and more than a fair share of spiders. I checked online and found that there are usually 1-4 access panels that can be removed for cleaning, repair, etc. Here are my steps: 1. Remove the upper most panel (usually a trapezoid-shaped plastic "box"). There are anywhere from 1-4 "hangers" that, once all the screws are removed, will hold the panel in place while you are unscrewing the last few screws. 2. Remove the panel and clean with a lint-free cloth the entire inside of the panel. This is an area where a lot of dust and spider webs can be found. 3. Grab your vacuum cleaner and carefully clean away all the spider webs. Making sure you don't bump into the inside of the projector screen! 4. Spray a small amount of dust cleaner or window cleaner on the lint-free cloth and run the entire length of the TV. Clean all surfaces this way except the reflector (mirror). It is best to clean the mirror with compressed air (get it anywhere - usually in the computer section). 5. Using a flashlight or bare lightbulb, thoroughly inspect all surfaces for dust and spiderwebs. And, of course, clean anything missed the first time around. 6. Using a clean lint-free cloth (I find cotton underwear from Wal-Mart works the best), spray a very small amount of window cleaner (streak-free Windex, etc.) on the cloth and rub the cloth together until almost dry. Then, simply wipe all three lenses clean. 7. Replace the back panel and pay close attention to the alignment of the holes to ensure the screw goes back in the same way it came (if not, the panel could ultimately lose the seal and allow for more dust). 8. Allow for several minutes drying time before turning the set back on. Hints: 1. Clean the speaker area, too. 2. Repeat the process at least each 30 - 45 days to ensure optimal performance. 3. Use a small computer fan to circulate air behind the set if the area gathers excessive dust. They're quiet and can be purchased (almost anywhere - Radio Shack, Wal-Mart, etc.)with switches that are easily accessible.
