Samsung 42in. rear projection tv HC-R4241W very dusty and dirty inside what could i use to clean, also the mirror is very dirty looks like smoke maybe? what could i use to clean it up.


Cleaning any projection tv is not complicated but requires a basic understanding of the mechanism and how it works to avoid problems. Number one on the list is to never, ever use paper towels or paper products to wipe any mirrors, lenses or the screen. You should only use lint free cloth towels, something like cloth diapers or good new shop rags. The cleaner should be something without ammonia, mild and non-abrasive. Something like non-ammonia windex. I have the entire procedure written down at which should walk you through the process.

The picture is dull, what i have to do for the TV?

The usual cause of the DLP's geeting dull is the front small projection mirror gets dusty and needs cleaning. The mirror is located dead center in the front after removing the screen assembly. Its a small mirror directly in front of the lens assembly of the light engine.

Rear projection tv picture quality loss

most of these sets have 3 lens for the three picture tubes inside and also a mirror---if it has never had the lens cleaned they could be dusty and this will diminish the brightness and clarity of your picture---if real dirty the picture will look washed out------most of these sets you can remove the back cover(unplug set first) and gain access to the lens ; clean them with a lens cloth or a paper towel with glass cleaner.

Tv color not bright enough and just replaced lamp

Clean the small mirror in front that projects the image onto the rear mirror. The Rear mirror always stays good but the front small mirror gets dusty and the colors and bright levels get affected and appear dim.

Cleaning rear projection screen tv

It is very rare to have to clean the mirror. It us upside down so it does not collect dust. It does however collect nicotine if there is a smoker in the house. Some RCA mirrors are not glass and should not be touched. The lenses do get dusty and should be cleaned.

Sony 46'' WEGA TV

The mirror assembly has no moving parts, this unit has a minimum of 3 fans! if the fan blades get too dusty the fan will get noisy. Try cleaning the fans with compressed air.
