I have been fighting a dark screen almos impossible to see dark scenes

i found this from another person
the mirror has dust on it easy fix
remove front of screen by removing screws around the top and sides of the back don't forget to pop off the bottom cover in the front it just pulls off
then remove center cover screws
i could not disconnect the front electrical plug but it has enough slack to lift and then tip the front screen down to the floor
it will be obvious on the mirrors there is a big one it wasn't to dirty
lean in and look down there is a small mirror and lens they were filthy
there is a piece of foam trying to keep the dust out it was sucked backed so dust could get in
clean with windex and paper towels cloth didn't work
good luck

What can I use to clean the mirror on my 65" MItsubishi model #65737??


If its a WD 65737 do not attempt it---special mirror and any marks will show in picture---Contact Mitsubishi as they do make a special liquid cleaner for this but real care has to be taken, not to mention just getting at the mirror correctly-----why does it need cleaning?

I have a hitachi 55vf820 lcd rear projection tv. How do you get the cover off to clean mirror?


Don't try that as the mirror almost never needs cleaning and MUST be cleaned with a special cleaner---leave a single fingerprint on that mirror (or a smudge) and it will stand out in the picture like a sore thumb.

My mirror broke in a kdf-50we655 and i need to know what the size is so i can order it?


First off the mirror in your Sony is not a standard mirror. It's called a "front or first surface" mirror meaning the reflective surface is on top of the clear glass as compared to normal mirror which has the reflective coating behind the glass.The wrong glass will throw the focus off and reduce the brightness...how much I really can't say. Because of this cleaning the mirror is also very tricky...no alcohol or windex. Use an eyeglass lens type cleaning cloth with a light touch. As for the mirror size...try measuring the mirror mounting or "holding clips" area to determine the original size. Another trick may be to ask your local Sony repair center about the mirror size because they will most likely be your only source to order the correct replacement mirror.

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.

Cleaning rear projection screen tv


It is very rare to have to clean the mirror. It us upside down so it does not collect dust. It does however collect nicotine if there is a smoker in the house. Some RCA mirrors are not glass and should not be touched. The lenses do get dusty and should be cleaned.

How to locate and clean the mirror on philips projection set


Remove upper back. The mirror is right there facing down at 45 degree angle to the three projector lenses and the screen. It is a silver polyester film laid over a backing board. I cleaned mine successfully with very soft paper towel (Bounty) and 70% alcohol. Rub gently in small circles until the alcohol is dry. If you just wipe the alcohol across the surface it will dry with a bad white haze. You have to rub it dry and then keep moving on until whole mirror is cleaned. This is only necessary if there are smokers in the house. Cleaning gets the nicotine film off the mirror. Best to not clean if possible.

How can I clean the mirrors on this tv?


to clean the mirrors you must remove the screen first there are several screws in the back to remove the screen. then there is a mirror shaped like a polligon clean this with a dry cloth do not use a paper towel. soft colth must be used on any optical surface. then clean the optical engine lens in the same manner. them the large mirror in the back. remeber if you leave a defect on any of these surfaces it will be amplified by the screen. this system relies on a lamp to provide bright picture so replace that as well. this should be a part of your anual cleaning agreement of the after market warranty you purchased assuming you bought one. dim picture = lamp, fuzzy, dim, dull picture = dust

Mirror


There is black insulating foam that surrounds the projector and it may be displaced to one side.This leaves about an 1 inch opening around the projector lens and that could be the source of the problem,dust being blown into the compartment with the mirrors.
Cleaned the mirrors really well and used double stick tape to reattach the foam to the plastic frame and this will closed off the opening that maybe letting the dust into the mirrored area of the TV.
