Re: front screen cover

Hammer, waay easier and safer to remove the back top cover, the front is flimsy when it is removed from the set and if you crack one or both of the screens they cost big money. Be advised that the top back cover has a large mirror bolted to it and it to is expensive. Have 2 people when the last screw is taken out so you don`t break the mirror, not real heavy but very awkward for one person. Once you remove this back cover you can clean the mirror, inside of front screen and all 3 lenses. NO WINDEX, DAMP, lint free cloth and warm water only. Good Luck & Happy Holidays, BMW Rider

Need to remove front screen from toshiba TP50G50

There is a way to remove entire front screen with the frame----BUT there is a easier way to do this.

With set unplugged remove rear cover---wipe the lens you see there first--light source for picture. With a Swiffer type duster carefully reach up and in and get all the webs out.

Use no force if up against the inside of the screens as that may scratch them---much faster, safer, and easier than removing screen unit from front and avoids possible damage.

Cobwebs proscan ps56700 inside screen

It can be done from the front but from the rear is actually more easy and safe--removing front screen and frame entails some danger of damage to the screens.

I have over many years of outside/home service calls encountered this.

As a outside technician I want the quickest and safest way to do this.

With set unplugged simply remove rear cover:

Use a swiffer type duster to reach up and inside and gently get all the webs out(do not use force when against the inside of the screens) and if the handle is long enough you will be able to remove all of the webs.

Also when doing this you will see with cover off 3 large black lens at the top of the chassis above the circuit boards.

They are the light source for your picture--clean them with a lens cloth or a paper towel with Glass cleaner sprayed on it---Do not attempt to clean the mirror in the rear as it is a film material and is easily scratched.

If the lens were dusty/dirty and then cleaned the picture will be brighter and sharper looking----that should be done about one time a year.

Mitsubishi VS50609 has cobwebs behind the ribbed screen and I need to know how to remove the ribbed screen, I already removed the clear cover smooth cover. Sandy

set should have the clear screen cover (protective) and two more screens behind that. Easy way is to unplug set and remove back cover--cobwebs are usually behind on inner screen.

With the back off I use a swiffer like duster and reach up and get them all out--gently on the inside of the inner screen so you do not scratch or mar it.

If this helped you rate this solution as I do this here for free.

Clean behind the screen.

to packerfan. yesterday i did some thinking. i had the same problem w/ my toshiba 57". cobwebs in the viewing screen. i found the solution to be simple. take the front panel off. it's just held on by some clips. remove the black cardboard cover that protects the wiring. it's simple just w/ a screwdriver. attach a feather duster w/ duct tape to a 2 ft. dowel or longer if your arms are short.there are several places you can go up to dust. i found that if you clean 1/2 of the screen then the other 1/2 you should be done all tolled in about 10 mins. presto! my screen has never looked so good.too bad it's taken me 3 yrs. to figure it out. hope this solution works for you as great as it worked for me!!!
