Do you have instructions for replacing the outer picture screen?
I need to replace the screen on my 61" Sony rear projection television , model: KP-61S65. I was blowing out a candle & splashed wax on the picture screen :( I still can't believe that I did it! I was having a hard time in removing the wax because of the fragility of the screen, so I tried a solvent which then also had removed the coating on the screen. Now, I've got a large white streak with the remaining wax. The screen is ruined..
Sony says that I can purchase the part for around $200.00. I'm surfing the web to try & find a refurbished or used screen---My main idea is to atleast find the instructions for replacing the screen myself..... Do you or anyone have a solution for me...please??
Re: Do you have instructions for replacing the outer...
I'm muziclady & I had three choices to choose for replacing the screen. The first was to purchase a new screen through Sony's parts dept. site
Secondly I found this this site that makes rear pro. screen antiglare screens: http://www.glarestopper.com/measure2.php
Also from this site, it has instructions for the removal of the screen to measure & re-install. [which is easy]. The actual screen size for the 61" is 58x30 inches, & it's referred as being a 61" Projection TV Screen Only [Lenticular Fresnel] .
My final choice was to Google for a screen replacement. I was fortunate to find a used one from an RCA television..It's the exact same size, etc.

Hi, I used to work in Best Buy and one of the key things about rear projection TVs and the reason they push those service plans on you is that the tubes/colors need to be calibrated each year. You can do this yourself by checking out the following website:
http://lgknowledgebase.com/kb/index.php?View=entry&EntryID=3229 If you are not able to adjust the convergence using the remote you will need to replace the convergence chips.
1) Convergence menu does not work for one or more colors. Such as: Red moves up,down, but left or right fails.
2) Screen is bowed looking.
If you have one or more of the problems above you need to replace the convergence chips. You can get a kit and instructions from www.TvRepairKits.com Hope this helps :)

I replaced the screen on my 62 inch projection TV for about $50 and the the picture quality is good! Have a sheet of plexiglass cut to the EXACT size needed. BEFORE installation it MUST be frosted on both sides by either a fine particle sandblaster or by sanding it VERTICALLY on BOTH sides with a power sander and a fine grade paper.
If this is only an OUTER protective screen and the image is projected on the inner screen then DO NOT frost the replacement screen, just install it.
go to sonytv.com parts see if you can get one cheaper there.i dont know how old the tv is but dealing direct with sony should bring the cost down somewhat.or you may waant to advertise in the local paper and see if someone out there has one theyd sell cheap.
