Is it a rear projector , I am positive it is, if it is here is the info you will need,
First you will have to know if it is assesable from the front, most of the time it is, but of the model has sensor's in the front that must be disconected first, removew the front, trick's or take your time and try to figure how the hell did they design the unit to put together, some of the hidden screw's or in the front plastic part that snaps off or pull off, look , most front screen or popable, meaning take out the buttom screws first and see if it commig apart by giving it a bit of force outward, make shure there is no wireed attached to the screen if it has self aligment sensor's, is so disconect the connector, don't know your model by hart but don't think it has any, next keep pulling the buttom part until your almost all pulled out at the bottom , make shure there no wire, then keep pulling it until the front screen it off. Heray.... Next there is 3 bright light devel's that shine, red, blue, green. look inside to see how durty they or, if very durty, then you must keep in mind how the tube's rop cover or set or place, there is 4 screw's that take the top cover off, don't take the picture tube apart just the top big black peace, remember how it goes back together, or you will run into problem, dont open the priture tube where there is oil, you're be sorry, next remove the big black glass part, then clean it with hot soppy water, I use dish soap, if you see it is not durty don't open the other one's then put it back together and do the next until they or all clean and piffy, next clear the miroir, Oh what a difference, you say, well not to desapoint you , I just hope you have put it all together in order and didn't tuch tose adjustment that you not suppose to touch, leave it like it is, unless you think you know what you or doing don't touch, last clean the back of the screen that u had sutch a hard time pulling off then if lucky put it back together, and ha, what a difference, but hopping your convergence is not off, if it easy try manualy adjusting it. Last witch I don't sudjest is go to your munue turn off the colours, put contrast to 80%- amd brightness to 40% and in the front cover remove it 5 screw's this time, oh it getting easier, and adjust the focus for eash screen, it is the small black box about 4" x4" with 6 adjustment, it say's on it focus and creen control, to be able to adjust it correctly put your menu on when ajusting them you will see when they or in focus, unless you were clases, then you run into problem agian, last ajust the screen so that you get the most purfect black and white colour without over driving the screens were you see drive line, I do not want to see drive line's,,, go it. and back of put back the colour and see what you have accomplish, Ah....
I owe.... Last put the rest together and have a nice day.

How do I get to and clean screen of a Hitachi 60fx20b

honestly you will probably cause more issues than you will solve. If you separate the layers it will allow dust to get in and that will show up worse than water. If you are sure you can do it, then the front needs to come off. but be really careful.

Just wanting to know how to remove the front screen to clean the dust of the projectors

You can do that but an easier way is to remove rear cover (set unplugged)and clean the lens with a lens cloth or paper towel with glass cleaner sprayed on it.

It is fairly easy to damage screen when removing it/replacing it.

Let me know what you find.

My front screen broke

Honestly the price of the screen is probably more than the TV is worth. If you are wanting to repair it yourself remove the damaged panel and replace with a plexi-glass or similar cut to size.

I got a replacement lamp for Mitsubishi WD-52628. In order for it to work, I have to turn it on and off a bunch of times. Sometimes it just shuts off before the picture comes on and doesn't work at all.

Hi,did you close the door cover? Reset the lamp
timer? you can do this by unpluging the set for 5 min
and plug it back(works for most sets). Check the fan
was running ok? You can clean it w an air pressure
can. If you heard clicking or like wanting to turn on the problem could be with the board that powers the lamp.The board it's called the ballast.If its not able
to provide the power to the lamp it will not turn it on and the red light will blink.

How to take cover off

First, my disclaimer:

I have a much older projector, but the way they are constructed hasn't changed a lot to my knowledge.

An excess of dust can shorten the life of electronics, it's a given. But the majority of these sets are allowed to collect dust for many years of operation before any problem occurs.
I sense that you may instead be asking about cleaning the lenses and mirror. Actually, the mirror, since it faces somewhat at a downward angle in these sets tends to stay clean. the lenses however, face upwards, and do get quite dusty, causing a blurry picture, with ghostly images on the screen at their worst.
To clean the lenses on most RCA sets I've seen, the screen must be removed. Allow the set to cool and voltages to dissipate for 30 minutes before beginning this process. There should be a removable panel beneath the screen, usually retained by screws on the backside at each end. REmoving the panel will expose the screws that keep the screen in place at the bottom. With the screen removed, the lenses (there are three) will be quite obvious. I clean mine with typical glass cleaner and SOFT paper towels. PAY ATTENTION not to allow any liquid to drip into the projector below or you may disable the projector unit possibly causing damage that must be repaired. If you are successful at the lens cleaning you will have restored the picture quality to like new.

If you find my suggestions to be helpful, please share with us some details so that others may benefit from knowing the whole story. Thank you!

Cleaning the screen cover on my sony big screen

To clean its front screen, you should not open front cover as its complicated procedure. just take off its back cover as its shown in picture and use air-blower to clean dust. Then use soft cotton cloth to clean its screen from internal and 3 bulbs / lenses (CRTs) and job is done.
Need further help, let me know.
