Look inside the lens while the set is on. If you see things floating around inside the glass, the fluid will need to be changed inside of each tube. I will post a link on how this is done if this is a Magnavox TV set. Good luck

Need to take apart a Toshiba 57H83 for cleaning

This is fairly easy to do.

You will work from the back of the tv.

1) Unplug the tv and wait a ten minutes for components to discharge.
2) Take the back panel off which is the brown pressboard with all the holes. Probably about 12 screws for that tv.
3) Take the back top plastic shround off if you want to clean the mirror. There are about 15 screws around the perimeter of the shroud, and maybe two in the back.
4) gently lift the shroud off the tv, it will have the mirror attached to the back of it so be gentle and careful.
5) lay the shroud on the floor so you can clean the mirror with window cleaner or non-streaking solution.

6) with the shroud off you should be able to see the tops of the CRT lenses covered in dust. Clean those gently. Do not bump them or turn the lens in any way otherwise you may need to do some re-alignment and/or re-focus of the CRTs.

7) DO NOT USE window cleaner on the back of the screen or front of the screen. You should get screen cleaner solution for this specifically. It might be best to just vacuum the spider webs off the screen and not clean it if you don't have the screen cleaner handy.

To clean the dust off the circuit boards, here is a tip:

With a clean soft paintbrush and a shop vac, or house vacuum, use the paintbrush and lightly brush around the components and on the circuit board. Have the vacuum hose right next to the paintbrush so it sucks up the dust as you stir it up. BE GENTLE on the components.

Stay away from the CRT necks and do not use your fingers. Remember the CRTs can still be carrying a good electrical charge, so best to avoid them.

Re-assemble the tv after everything has been cleaned. Figure it will take about 45 minutes if you haven't done it before.

Mitsubishi WD-62527 replacement lamp install and brightness low

as i previously posted, my picture was dim, muddy looking after replacing lamp with osram lamp. i fixed mine by taking the screen off and cleaning the small mirror. it had a thick layer of dust on it, cleaned with a microfiber cloth. no water, no glass cleaners. i also used a very fine new small paint brush and dusted the projector lens which also had a dust film. brightness, contrast and clarity returned!

Bog and dust on mirror....showing up on screen, how best to clean?

remove pointy screws out of back of screen ( 3 up each side and 4 across top). remove speaker grill, remove 4 screws from center cover. remove 4 screws from bottom of tv, disconnect wire bundle. lift screen up and off. clean mirror facing up and lens. Do NOT touch big mirrror, trust me. put it back together by sliding screen back on and making sure all edges are flush before putting screws back in. the pointy ones go in the back every other screw is flat. good luck, should only take about 5 minutes.

Need to disassemble Mitsubishi VS-6041 60 in Rear Projection

Wow, You are asking for a complete disasemmbly. If this is necessary, you have to remove any screws you can find that are connected to the front panel. Usually they are in the top of the set ( you'll find them after removing the mirror panel and mirror ). I wouldn't remove any tubes as the tube convergence would have to be all reset and that would require a cross hair generator. I do hope this has helped in some way, but all I can do is send you my best wishes as I certainaly don't suggest disassembly if there is any other way. Good luck

On a Philips 55P8241 I would remove the lower grill, (just pops off), then remove the screws at the base of the screen and lift the screen off... Be VERY careful setting it down... You are then inside the main projection. Claen the mirror, cans and lenticular screen with windex and a soft paper towel and reverse the process putting it back together.. Good Luck Bill
