I need to replace the dust cover on my Hitachi 53SDX01B

the problem here is Hitachi usually if it still has it sells all three screens as a unit---expensive.

You may want to search with GOOGLE the internet as some companies sell replacement "protective" screen replacements.

I have even seen one time someone found a piece of plexi-glass and had it cut to the exact size and thickness for a replacement.

Depending on how bad, there are many layers of screen, if the outer layer is smooth and does not have ridges you can use a piece of Plexiglas to replace that. although glare may be more prevalent with a Plexiglas replacement. if the outer layer has ridges or more than one layer is broken there is not much you can do yourself. The screen from the manufacturer is cost prohibitive to replace. But if you have a local tv repair shop they may have a junk one, that they can sell you for a reasonable price. If it is just a small corner it might be better not to do anything at all, when you watch a tv it is the middle of the tv you watch and the corners are hardly noticeable under normal tv watching, although it may bother some people that the crack exists it actually may not cause you much discomfort watching the tv.

Cracked screen

The lenticular and fresnal screen for that unit are sold together under RCA p/n# 258513 and are available from Vance Baldwin for about $260.00 plus shipping.. They make for an oversized item so the shipping is probably 70% of the part cost.

Hope this helps!

You want to order the lenticular screen (has vertical ridges). The part number is TKG2AH50381 and you can find a supplier if you google it and then click on the shopping tab.
