Can we seperate the tv from the speaker to transposrt it up stairs?


You should be able to take the screen off and the top black plastic shroud that holds the mirror off to transport it.

1) To do this, you will pull the speaker grill cover off on the front bottom.
2) I think there are four screws at the bottom of the screen holding the bottom in place. Use a 1/4" socket.
3) Disconnect the wire harness going to the screen by squeezing the tab on the connector - very easy to do.

4) Remove all the screws on the black plastic shroud - about 8 of them. Have someone hold your screen and gently lift the screen off. The black shroud I think still has some screws holding it in place that become visible once you lift the screen off.

5) Once the screen is off, there should be a set of screws that are holding the shroud down. Remove those and gently put the shroud on the floor where the mirror cannot get damaged.

6) Installation is reverse of the above.

Note: This would be a good time to clean the mirror and tops of the CRT bulbs. It will make your picture much nicer if it hasn't been done. Use a non streaking glass cleaner on the mirror and bulbs. For the screen, just wipe it down, don't spray it with glass cleaner.

How to replace a broken projection TV mirror.


You were moving your projection TV and drop it, breaking the mirror.Where can you get a replacement and how do you remove and replace the bad mirror safely and properly?

First be aware that the mirror is delicate and removal and replacement should be done very carefully while wearing leather gloves and safety glasses.

Go to http://www.encompass.com to locate and order your mirror. They have good prices, availability and a great search engine. Now most service manuals are also available as a free pdf download. The service manual will help find the screws needed to be removed to complete the job, infact it should have a section devoted to procedure for mirror replacement. If encompass does not have the service manual, they have most but not all, I would recommend purchasing it at http://www.servicemanuals.net for about $16.00.

Installation is straight forward. Generally you have to remove the back top cover with the mirror attached. On some units the bottom rear must be removed prior to removing the top. Requires removing alot of screws. There could also be some screws under the bezel on the front, below the screen. This varies from unit to unit and this is why the service manual is necessary for this job.

Remove the rear top section containing the mirror and lay it upside down on the floor. You should be looking at the mirror in the top rear section at this point. Remove the mirror hold in screws or clips. Again having the service manual makes this part easier. Remove the mirror being careful not to break it and cause a safety hazzard.

Install the new mirror, after cleaning with a soft cloth and a non-ammonia surface/glass cleaner such as Cinch or Windex.

While you have the unit apart you should clean the lenses and the rear of the screen.

I have a tip at http://www.fixya.com/support/r4690955-clean_lense_screen_in_projection_tv which will walk you through the process. This should complete the job.

MIRROR HOW TO REPLACE


maryannefede,

The mirror in your unit is attached to the inside rear of the projector. If you remove all the screws around the perimeter of the top rear of the unit you should be able to remove the back and see the mirror. The mirror is held in with screws around the perimeter. Cost is about $100.00 US at http://www.encompass.com .

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating.

I have a spider inside the screen and need to know if I can somehow take apart the tv to clean it out?


the lower rear board must be removed.
To remove the lower rear board, remove the 15 screws
To remove the Back Cover, remove the 18 screws all
around it.
Use extreme caution here, as the mirror is fragile and
when the last screw is removed, the back can fall down and damage the mirror. Use additional help and allow them to hold the back cover while removing the last screw.
After taking off the Back Cover, the cabinet light cavity will be exposed.

I need to clean mirror


Most rear projection sets the screen will pop off the front. Usually a couple of hidden catches. Get another person for this.
Once off you can clean the mirror but not the inside of the screen.
Unplug tv first

Take the back bezel off. It should have many screws around it. then once open you should see the back of the mirror. Carefully take the screws out of the mirror, you may have to do some modifing with the new mirror if it does not come prefabed.
