Windex is not the best cleaner. Bed and Bath Beyond has a very good NON-Streak class cleaner that I tell my customers to use. The best solution is NOT to Spray directly onto the TV Screen. Remember the glass is only delivering the picture from an RGB projection unit sitting inside the enclosure. It is not the electronic projector and the screen is separate. It can be replaced if damaged; however I believe it is only streaked and needs proper cleansing. If you get the new cleaner, spray the solution onto a soft cloth and wipe the exterior screen. Promptly wipe it dry and if you need to do this a few times, eventually you will get the glass clear and enjoy the show.
Never spray directly on a screen. If the solution seeps into the underside (back etched side of the glass) it could damage the surface. You may have to get to the inside from the rear projection area or lift of the front glass screen and remove it completely. Usually the Rear surface of the screen is etched and can be wiped clean. Go to Bed Bath and get a good streak less windows cleaner. Spray it on a soft cloth and wipe the front and/or back glass. Wipe dry with a CLOTH, not a paper towel, and when dry use a flash light to see any streaks or blemishes left behind. Clean again is necessary. Do not apply pressure, gently clean and try not to cause scratches as they show up when the projection device flashes the image on the glass portion. Put it all back they way it was and enjoy.
It sounds like something has fallen or crawled into your tv. Unplug unit and remove the panel on the rear bottom. Now remove the upper part of the rear cabinet if you cannot see the problem. You will probably find something on the lense blocking the light. This would be a good time to clean the lenses. Using a soft cloth and windex, spray the cloth then gently clean each lense using a circular motion. Do not wipe until dry as you may scratch the lense. Do not spray the lense as you will cover critical components with corrosive cleaner. Do not push hard or disturb any lense adjustments. Reassemble unit and your tv should look as good as new. Let me know how this works out. firstname.lastname@example.org .
The frame around the screen just pops off. Unscrew the plastic holders from the chassis frame and the screen will come off allowing you to clean everything inside easily. The "2" thin screens are easily cleaned and put back on easily also. Don't do what I did and think the screens go into the front slot of your plastic brace, they slide easily into the wider slot. You'll also be able to clean the dust from the reflector and guns with Windex. Much better picture after wards, trust me. You would be surprised how much dust may have accumulated on the lenses.
What you have to do is remove the front screen assembly by removing the screws loacted at the bottom of the screen frame just under the frame lip. Lift the screen assembly up from the bottom to disengage the holder clips at the top and set the screen assembly to the side. On the inside of the screen, the part that faces the projection mirror assembly you can use some Windex and paper towels to clean the surface. On the outside do not use Windex as this will breakdown the protective finish used on the viewing side of the screen. To clean the viewing side, use a special cleaner also used to clean computer display screens. Re-install the screen assembly and you are done.
Remove speaker girll.No screws to remove grill just pull off.At the bottom of the screen frame you will see 4 1/4 inch screws.Remove screws and lift screen straight up.Clean cob webs and clean off lenses.I do not reccomend cleaning the mylar mirror.It is very delicate and you will scratch it.You can use windex to clean lenses.Good luck.
It is difficult to clean/remove the screens. Best case senario, it will dry up leaving little to no water mark. There are three screens, liquid gets between them and it sucks it in. Disassembly and cleaning will fix, but the screens are very fragile and cannot be wiped without potential damage. Any dust, dirt between them will show in the picture. Proceed at your own risk.
Yes you can take the back bottom of the tv off.You will see 3 bulbs 5or6" in diameter.take a very soft clean cloth spray cloth not bulbs.windex persoal cleaner for your glasses ect.wipe bulbs gently removing dust.Above thes lights are the mirror maybe 10"by12" clean that to spray cloth not mirror than wipe clean"Now get limber and try to reach the inside of the big screen and wipe completely.
I had the same problem trying to find a new screen. What I did was found a local plastics shop and had a piece of 1/8" plexy glass that has one side anti-glare. It was only $50, and its alot more durable.I had a few problems changing it though. First you have to pull the rear bottom panel lose, then the rear top. Once the screen is exposed (TAKE THIS ADVICE), put a small piece of tape on one of the top corners and mark its position. This has a two part screen and the inner one is a image magnifier and goes only one way. It took me 4 trys to reposition it right for a correct picture. Once you do this carefully unbolt the two side and top screen brackets. Make sure you dont mess with the four centering sensers. Only loosen the screws on the bottom screen bracket. Take the screen out and seperate the two screens by removing the tape around the edges. You will now discover that only the outer antiglare screen is craked. Clean the three inner sides with windex and a paper towel, then use a cotton rag or tee shirt to eliminate any particles left behind. Once you get the screen in place dont over tighten the screws they strip very easy. Since you have the tv apart you should go ahead and blow all the componits off with a keyboard cleaner, and clean the bulbs with a super soft cotton teeshirt with a small spray of the windex on it, dont spray the bulbs directly, and do the same with the mirror. Remeber that all streaks will show up on the image screen. Clean the out side of the screen after you put it back together. Oh yeah, make sure its unpluged first.
