I read in the manual for the Sony KDF 50E3000 that you should use warm soapy water on a clean cloth if you aren't able to remove it with a dry cloth. I find that the microfiber cloths work best.

Hi i was in the chat session with you just now if your telly is hd compatible then its obvious you can get hd quality picture and sound as dvd do hd sky and cable do hd channels and also games consoles do hd picture and sound if your telly doesnt say hd then it wont get hd quality pictures and sound.
If it is hd then you need to have hd leads running from the equipment to your telly so that your telly know that its hd signal.
Your telly if it is hd compatible it will have this option in the menu acessed via the tv controll.
You can only recieve hd quality if you have hd equipment or hd equipment that picks up hd signal from cable tv or sky tv.
So if your telly is hd then it has to have a way of recieving hd signal now if you only have scart sockets and the coloured sockets and you have looked for a flap that opens up on the back or either side or on the front of telly if you find no hd socket its about the size of usb port then the only way is through the coloured sockets you will need to get the correct leads and equipment needed make sure your telly is hd before buying any leads when you buy them take make and model of telly with you so they can cross referance the leads with your telly.
Hope this is helping you with your problem let me know if you need further assistance ok

SOURCE: rear projection clean mirror

I just cleaned my 4 year old panasonic PT47WXC43G's mirror and bulbs using alcohol free baby wipes and a microfiber cloth to dry them off. I did this because my tv started to look like crap. The picture was extremely foggy. I had incredible success doing this! Saved me about 2 grand. Now I don't have to buy a new TV now! My picture looks just like it did the day I bought the TV....If not better!

SOURCE: cleaning cobwebs from philips rear projection tv model 51PW9363/1

I had the exact same problem and the fix is easy to do. Unplug the TV first of all and wheel it out so you can easily get to all of the rear screws.

  1. Remove the screws from the ventilated back panel (the piece of wood with a bunch of holes in it surrounding the AV connection panel.
  2. Remove the wood panel you just unscrewed.
  3. Remove all screws from the upper plastic case on the back.
  4. Remove the back plastic case carefully. This is a little tricky due to two metal pins that it hangs on. Lift it upwards and you should be able to free it from these pins
  5. At this point you should be able to see the entire workings of the TV, and consequently the massive amount of dust that has accumulated.
  6. Carefully take a vacuum and remove all the cobwebs, taking care not to bump the mirror or the lenses.
  7. First, I used some compressed air to clean off the lenses and then used a clean microfiber towel to remove all the dust from the lenses, the mirror, and the screen on the inside. Make sure the part you are wiping the mirror and lenses off with is free from any dust or dirt or you will risk scratching them.
  8. Reverse the dissasembly process to put the case back together.
  9. I went through the convergance settings at this point and found that they were all out of calibration and as such recalibrated them. Use the mulitpoint calibration for best results.
  10. Enjoy a much cleaner brighter TV!
