I just cleaned my 4 year old panasonic PT47WXC43G's mirror and bulbs using alcohol free baby wipes and a microfiber cloth to dry them off. I did this because my tv started to look like crap. The picture was extremely foggy. I had incredible success doing this! Saved me about 2 grand. Now I don't have to buy a new TV now! My picture looks just like it did the day I bought the TV....If not better!

How do i clean mirror on a sony KP-57ws520

Fairly easy to do.

Follow these steps:
1) Unplug the TV
2) Remove the lower access panel (the pressboard with all the holes in it) by removing the screws holding it in place. (This is the panel where where your connections are made)

3) Remove all the screws on the big black shroud on the back that actually holds to mirror. There are probably about 15 screws.

4) gently lift the panel off and set in on the floor or table where you can clean the mirror. (remember the mirror is attached to the back side of it) I usually put in on the floor.

5) clean the mirror with glass cleaner or non-streaking solution.

Reverse the steps above to re-assemble.

How to replace a broken projection TV mirror.

You were moving your projection TV and drop it, breaking the mirror.Where can you get a replacement and how do you remove and replace the bad mirror safely and properly?

First be aware that the mirror is delicate and removal and replacement should be done very carefully while wearing leather gloves and safety glasses.

Go to to locate and order your mirror. They have good prices, availability and a great search engine. Now most service manuals are also available as a free pdf download. The service manual will help find the screws needed to be removed to complete the job, infact it should have a section devoted to procedure for mirror replacement. If encompass does not have the service manual, they have most but not all, I would recommend purchasing it at for about $16.00.

Installation is straight forward. Generally you have to remove the back top cover with the mirror attached. On some units the bottom rear must be removed prior to removing the top. Requires removing alot of screws. There could also be some screws under the bezel on the front, below the screen. This varies from unit to unit and this is why the service manual is necessary for this job.

Remove the rear top section containing the mirror and lay it upside down on the floor. You should be looking at the mirror in the top rear section at this point. Remove the mirror hold in screws or clips. Again having the service manual makes this part easier. Remove the mirror being careful not to break it and cause a safety hazzard.

Install the new mirror, after cleaning with a soft cloth and a non-ammonia surface/glass cleaner such as Cinch or Windex.

While you have the unit apart you should clean the lenses and the rear of the screen.

I have a tip at which will walk you through the process. This should complete the job.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating. Please consider a testimonial. Thank you.

I have a toshiba 50inch rear progetion tv. I was

There is one mirror inside. It is easy to remove the front plastic screen by removing the bottom fabric grill (snaps off by pulling outward like a removable speaker grill). Remove several wood screws along bottom edge of screen. Lift up the whole plastic screen frame and pull it away from the TV; but be careful with the control wires that go to the center panel, which snaps off the big screen frame easily. The mirror is right there.

I need to clean mirror

Most rear projection sets the screen will pop off the front. Usually a couple of hidden catches. Get another person for this.
Once off you can clean the mirror but not the inside of the screen.
Unplug tv first

Bog and dust on mirror....showing up on screen, how best to clean?

remove pointy screws out of back of screen ( 3 up each side and 4 across top). remove speaker grill, remove 4 screws from center cover. remove 4 screws from bottom of tv, disconnect wire bundle. lift screen up and off. clean mirror facing up and lens. Do NOT touch big mirrror, trust me. put it back together by sliding screen back on and making sure all edges are flush before putting screws back in. the pointy ones go in the back every other screw is flat. good luck, should only take about 5 minutes.

Back of tv

Yes, start with unpluging the set. lol remove the lower rear cover first by removing all of the screws around the oustside edges, left-right-top-and next to the input panel. then remove all the screws around the edge of the top of rear cover. Be carefull because the top rear cover contains the mirror!! There is no way to make the bottom of the set any smaller other than removing the speaker grill in front. (usually this is just a snap-on cover.

Cleaning mirrors and lenses on Sony big-screen projection TV

it's fairly easy to remove the screws on the back bottom portion of any rear-projector television. when the bottom part is removed, you will see both the mirror and the 3 lens. isopropyl alcohol or windex should do an efficient job. a soft lens rag can be found at any camera store. i'd spray the lens rag instead of the actual lens or mirror when doing this job.

Mitsubishi 55'' rear projection 1080i hd tv lense cleaning

Pry off the lower speaker grill... Remove the screws at the lower edge of the screen framing and lift screen frame of the two catches at the top. Be careful, there will be wires still attached to the front button panel... Then lay the screen down and support the bottom of it in some way because the button panel wires won't reach all the way... then using windex and papertowel cleam the mirror and lens(s) on each of the crts. Also clean the back or inside of the screen area and reverse the process to re-mount the screen.
