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.

A spider is on the inside of the screen. how do I open the tv open to get the spider out and clean the inside of screen and lenses?


go_n,
First gather your needed items: screwdriver and a helper.

The screen is mounted to the enclosure of the TV by hanging on tabs mounted on the enclosure inside behind the screen. The screen simply lifts off after removing it's set screws at the bottom of the screen behind the big plastic piece that is below the entire screen.

1) Remove the speaker covers (grills).
2) Locate and remove the screws that hold the plastic piece onto the enclosure (8-12).
3) Remove the plastic cover and you will see the set screws holding the screen.
4) Remove the screws (2-4).
5) Use your helper as your screen is really big for most average sized people and lift the screen including the plastic bezel up and away from the enclosure.

Ensure that you have a secure area to set the screen as it will be large, heavy but yet very delicate. Also, do not clean anything unless you know for sure that you need to as sometimes just by touching things they get misaligned or break. This means but is not limited to: mirror, lenses & the screen.

When reinstalling the screen ensure that you hang the screen back onto all of the tabs or the picture will be blurry.

Good Luck!

51" Philips Projection Wide Screen. Want to know


Almost all the Philips projection sets have a large black plastic shroud on the top half of the back of the set----it can be removed--most of these sets use torks type screws (star shaped).

With the upper part on the back removed you will find the mirror is suspended---do not try to clean it--it is film like handy wrap and will not need cleaning.

I use a swiffer type duster to reach inside the set to remove any spider webs etc, If dead insects or dirt inside the screen use a very soft cloth with water (just dampen the cloth slightly)

Usually you are seeing spider or cob webs and the duster will get them all--DO NOT APPLY FORCE IF YOU WIPE THE INSIDE OF THE SCREEN AS IT IS EASY TO SCRATCH IT!

If you have questions make a comment here and I will do my best to answer them.

Cleaning webs from inside screen


There are two ways to do this---the hard way which is to remove the entire front screen OR

What I do is (with the set unplugged) remove the back cover of the set; you should see the three large black lens.

Most of these sets there will be enough room to get a swiffer duster up inside to gently catch and remove all the spider webs. If there is not enough room let me know and I will tell you how to remove the front screen.

Also---if you can see those large black lens---clean the dust off of them with a lens cloth or paper towel with glass cleaner sprayed on the towel.

If you can reach the webs from the back do not exert pressure when you wipe the inside of the screens---easy to scratch them.

If you have questions let me know BEFORE you attempt this.

If this helped or told you something you did not know rate this solution as very helpful as I do this here for free.

How do I dust inside the screen of a Rear projection TV?


Unplug tv first Usually you can pop the front screen off the set. There may be two hidden catches depending on the model. You may want to use two people for this. Once the screen is off removed the spider web and clean the back mirror with some windex, don't clean the inside of screen with any cleaner. Replace carefully the screen making sure it clicks back correctly

Hitachi 51UWX20B spider web like lines help


I know my response is a while after you asked, but to clean the inside of the tv case is pretty simple.

Remove the bottom speaker cover...on this model you just pull it off. There is no clips or screws.

Once the speaker cover is off you will see the bottom of the screen, there is 4-5 screws on the bottom on each side....I think 4 in the gray plastic and 1 in a black metal strap. With all of those screws out pull out SLIGHTLY on the screen and push up. The top is held in with a down force clamp and you are just popping it out of that....It will pop back in once you are done.

Now clean the back side of the screen, the mirror and CAREFULLY dust off the lenses. I myself did not want to use any cleaners (to avoid streaking) so I used a new microfiber dusting cloth. My picture became brighter and the "crack" that I thought I had was just a dust web....

Hope this helps and good luck
