You could go to your local hard ware store and buy a can of compressed air take the back of the tv off and spray all the parts that should work you have to do this every 6 months to a year I say
good luck with the cleaning :)

There are two ways: the hard and the easy way.

The easy way is with the back removed you should be able to see and reach the three lens with a lens cloth or a paper towel with glass cleaner sprayed on it.

The mirror rarely needs cleaning unless someone smokes in the house or you live in a very dusty environment.

If you have a small mirror with the back off you should be able to use it to see if the mirror is dusty; it rarely is as it hangs at a angle and dust rarely gets on it.

If you had a issue with cob webs or something on the inside of the screen the only way to deal with that is the Hard way: removal of the entire front screen assembly which is secured by screws at the bottom of it behind the front speaker grill.

This would allow you to clean the mirror, lens, and any webs or dirt on the inside of the screen.

Special care has to be taken here as once the screws are removed the screen pops out and usually requires some real care and skill to do. It is not worth damaging the screen just to look inside.

Let me know your thoughts and if you have questions I will attempt to assist you.
