Question about Mitsubishi WS-55315 55" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

How do I remove the outer protective screen on my Mitsubishi WS-55315?

The outer protective screen was broken and there is a small tear on the inside screen. I really don't have the money to replace the tv or have a repairman housecall right now and would just like to know how to remove the plexi-glass type outer screen and possibly repair the small tear on the inner screen without damaging the tv any further. Can I replace it with some lexan or plexi glass myself? I'd appreciate any help. Thanks!

There are trim pieces around the edges that can be removed by sliding a knife underneath and lightly prying. They should remove fairly easily, don't force them as they may break. Use the knife on the cabinet side and pry toward the center of the screen.

The tear on the inner screen may be best left as is.

lexan would be better than plexi as it is tougher, but try to get anti-glare if possible. Anti-glare plexi would be better than regular lexan.

Hi
Check the componet cables if you are using them for video from the cable box, the red may of came loose.Also you could have intermittent connection the video processor IC or as we techs call it the jungle IC. It is responsible for producing all the small singals used by the set.Tapping with the handle of a screwdriver on the signal board may lead you

If it was the lamp there should be nothing. press the menu button if the menu does not come up the issue is with the tv. If the menu does come up try a second source a dvd player or game system. If the issue is only with the original source than the original source needs to be replaced.

I have the same tv and I took my clear shield off and never put it back on.  The picture is much better without it as it will reflect light and objects in the room making it difficult to see the pic clearly.  I was told by a service tech that the primary purpose of the glass or shield is to prevent damage to the screen from objects, water etc.  If you have no small children in the home you can enjoy a better pic.

Good Day;

More than likely your TV has "COOLANT" (ethylene glycol) on the circuit boards. This fluid comes from the CRT's (picture tube) this fluid is used to keep the CRT's cool, such the name. This fluid from the CRT's leak when TV is on for long periods of time, the chamber expands and the seals leak.

One can remove this fluid by using "acetone" & small brush. The fluid is hard to see, use bright light, they spots can be smaller then a DIME. Also, the fluid can corrode the parts and traces on the boards. To protect the TV in future place heavy plastic or thick cardboard over affective area, make sure TV has proper air flow around TV.

If after the fluid has been removed and TV still does not work, call an Authorized Service Center to come out and repair TV after giving you an Written Estimate. The boards are not available.

Always try resetting the TV by unplugging it for one minute then plug back into A/C outlet and ALWAYS UNPLUG TV BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY REPAIR ON THE TV.

Good Luck, big IRISH.
