    It's a samsung hps 4253 and we acquired the television in the year of 2007

    Need to give the age, make and model please.

    Did you know that smoke is what makes electronics work?

    When you let it out of a part - it quits working!

These are not the most reliable sets to say the least. The power supply portion of the main module has failed and it will be expensive. Fortunantly, this happened while under warranty, yes?
Good luck with Samsung customer service.

The TV started smoking. Thought it might be dust. doesn't appear to be.

Your tv is burning part of it's electronics. Turn it off and unplug it. Either take it to a repair ship or replace it.

First is to unplug the set and remove back cover---some of these have a resistor in right rear area(as seen from back) that smokes.

If that---the high voltage splitter block up at the very front of the set behind the front grill and inspection plate behind that is burnt. It gets the resistor.

Screen is blank and orange light stays on

The power supply board failed. Most cause is the electrolitic capacitors. They look like little soda pop cans. These should all have "Flat" tops if you see any with buldging tops? That is the problem . They are cheap and easy to replace. Just remember capacitors and components in general can hold a charge even after being unplugged for months. They can kill you. make sure you use caution. Discharge those caps. The bad caps are usually visable bad. I would replace them. These caps have a negative and a positive. If you put these in wrong? They will either fizz out and smoke or a loud pop and smoke will happen.
Give me a good feedback on here please.

Take off screen on hdtv misubishi 62628. the screen has a spider web behind it and i want to clean it out

To remove the spiderwebs, you don't need to take the whole thing off. You just need to remove the screws around the screen frame (top and sides). The screen frame and mirror cover can be separated several inches with ease. You just need to use a flexible duster, one of those electro-static attracting numbers would be great, to clean the web out. Be careful not to disrupt the rear, large mirror and don't scratch the screen. Good luck.

Water behind screen

Did you just sell your TV? Because if you did, I'm probably the one who just bought it. Paid $200. Anyways, if not, I did fix it. I dismantled the TV, starting with the bottom. Pull off the speaker cover then unscrew everything on the bottom in order to loosen the top screen portion. Unscrew the top screen and pull it off slowly, disconnecting the one wire that connects it to the rest of the TV. Once the screen is off, you can seperate from the frame it by unscrewing it. I then cleaned both screens (there are two layers) with distilled water and a microfiber cloth. You might be able to use other cleaning methods but I recommend plenty of water and then a non abrasive cloth. Make sure it's clean and dry before putting it back up. Picture is like new and I love it!

Don't recommend replacing the light tunnel if you never had any experience with DLP optical systems. you need to pay careful attention to the way you remove any screws or you will be forced disassembling the engine multiple time to get the alignment correctly.
