Question about Sony KP-61S65 61" Rear Projection Television
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??
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.
Hope this helps... :)
