Use a foaming glass cleaner on the screen such as plast-n- glass you can get it at . make sure the set is off, use a lint free absorbant cloth to wipe it dry. don't use paper towels they will scratch the screen. do not use on the inside screen, smoke tends to go to exposed surfaces. you can also clean the mirror but leave no streaks or they will show up in the picture.

Had tv fot about 7 years, at top center of screen an area has appeared that is yellow in color. How can I fix problem?

If it's a 3 tube projector, the front of some of the tubes are cooled by an oily substance. this oil is replaceable. If it uses a light bulb, the bulb can be dimming, the color wheel may need to be cleaned as well as the lenses in front of the light. The DLP chip can also be going bad.

What's the best way to clean an oil painting. It looks as if this painting might have hung in a smokers home and is dingy and a bit 'yellowed'. I'm an artist and have access to quite a number of produ

Look at the back of it to see if it has yellowed. If there are yellow stains on the frame and the back, then it is not the varnish in the oil paint that has yellowed. You can then use something like 409 cleaner to get the stains off. You should blot the painting and not scrub or wipe it. If the varnish is yellowing you can get a product called conservationists liquid and apply that as per the directions to help with the varnish problem.

All areas that should project white are yellow could this mean bulb is getting old or maybe the settings of the compoter its hooked upto need to be chnaged please advise

If the screen is getting more yellow, that is due to either an old bulb, not producing so much high frequency light, or the blue LCD imager is dirty/burnt or the mirrors require specialist cleaning.
Cleaning the LCD units and mirrors takes about 2 hours to complete including re converging.
Hope that gives you an idea.

How & what do I use to clean the mirror

You can use glass cleaner to clean the mirror once a year (more for heavy smokers). Some models use the glass mirror, some use the Tin Foil like stuff on wood that scratches really easy, on those use a softer paper or cloth and spray it and wipe the spray off in one direction gently so you don't damage the fake mirror.
also do not clean the front screens (lentic and fresnel lens) you will create white/clear spots on them , damp a soft paper or cloth withwater
if you need to wipe the outside screen protector.
hope this helps

I’m happy to help further over the phone at

There may be a dust fleck on one of the LCD screens inside your projector. I had a similar problem and managed to clean it. But it requires you to dissassemble the entire projector !!!. If you are not technical, don't do this yourself. !!!

Spanking comes to mind... :) Just kidding..
You can access the inside area od the screen and with some windex and paper towel clean the reverse. There are actually two screens there sandwiched together, a lenticular and frensel screen. If you remove the front panel you should be able to remove the screens from the frame and clean between them also... If any of this makes you nervous calla qualified shop and they can do this in minutes on a house-call..
Have a great day!
