Pop off the speaker grille, it just pulls off.
Remove about 8 screws along the bottom edge of the screen frame.
Lift the entire frame abut 3/8 in., the top clips will desengage. Set aside, lean it against a soft surface.
Wipe off the dust on the rear of the screen, the mirror and the lenses by brushing softly with a clean cotton cloth. Do not use window cleaner unless it is very dirty with greasy dirt.

Usually you need to remove the speaker grille then you will notice a few screws in the lower screen frame remove thos screws then grab the screen frame and slide up wards to disengage the clips that hold the screen assembly on.

Remove tv screen from hitachi projection tv


The entire screen unit can be removed but first remove rear cover and look at the lens--clean with a lens cloth etc----peek up inside and look at the mirror--if not dirty or smudged just clean the lens.

removing the screen with its frame can be tricky--easy to damage the screens etc. Removal usually requires front speaker grill to be removed first---most just pull off but a few are secured from rear by some screws.

With it off look to see if at bottom of screen there are a row of screws--if the entire front unit can be removed it will pull out at bottom and be snapped in place.

A better suggestion is look at rear of set above back cover--if the upper part is plastic--it with the back removed can also be removed--careful as mirror is bolted into it---that way you can clean the mirror and get at the lens for the tubes without trying to remove screen unit--some of the smaller sets this is the ONLY way to get at the mirror.

Yes a number of screws but if plastic upper rear comes out with mirror much easier and safer way.

How do i remove the screen to my Mitsubishi wd-62638


For the model indicated (WD-62638) the entire screen unit needs to be removed.

Some models had two mirrors--the usual large one in back and a tiny one in the bottom front.

1. Locate and remove front plate below screen (where you may access the lamp as most of these are taken out from front)

2. Remove all the screws ON THE BACK OF THE SET around the top and both sides.

3. Remove a plate behind the removed lower front grill and there you should find a set of wires that go to front keyboard.

4. With that done look carefully at either front side below the screen unit---one screw on either side---do not remove but just back them out.

5. 2 person job---the entire screen unit lifts up and out.

6. DO NOT try to clean the large mirror---if touched with hand or your hair it will smudge and it will show in the picture.

7. If the little mirror is there at the bottom---it can be cleaned with glass cleaner---

8. Insert the screen unit back with the two front lower screws supporting it (have someone hold it in place until you line up and install all all the rear and then the 2 front screws.

Let me know if you have questions.

I have a mitsubishi dlp tv model wd60735 the picture is not bright any longer any suggestions


I think you have one of the models that have two mirrors inside: not Mitsubishi's best idea.

Most have just the large mirror in the back but I think this model has a very small mirror at the bottom (odd shape about 4x6 inches) behind the front screen which faces upwards and gets dirty from the fans inside the set.

It is amazing how much it can dim the picture; Caution, if yours has it the only way to get at it is to remove the entire front screen assembly---a phone call to Mitsubishi will confirm if your model has the two mirrors----the big one never needs cleaning(almost never and is special).

If you find your model has two mirrors either consider having a pro come out and do it (15 min job) or You Tube it to see if instructions there.

look before you leap as this is usually a two person job.

If you have questions let me know.

I have seen this before in these sets

The bottom of the screen has transparent green blotches


This model has a geometry mirror that is lies in the front of the cabinet. It is dirty and needs cleaned. Remove the middle front plastic cover, between the screen frame and speaker cover. Remover the screen frame, disconnecting the harness (4 screws are behing that middle cover ;). Clean the mirror and reassemble. Wipe the lens while you are in there and do not touch the big mirror... you'll really have a mess if you do. Also, use caution not to put pressure on that little mirror as you clean it, you'll mess up the geometry and end up with a trapezoidal picture.

How do i clean the bulbs and mirrows in a hitchi 42v710


The bulb is not an imaging element meaning dust on the bulb will not effect image quality and thus recommend not messing with it. You will need to remove the covers and use a very soft cloth to clean mirror. These products us a "first" surface mirror and scratch or imperfection or cleaning swirl on the mirror will show up on projected image. Suggest his be left to a professional. good luck

The plastic screen itself never gets dirty on the inside, unless a spider has taken up residence nearby. What you are likely experiencing is dust built up on the CRT lens and mirror - which would cause the picture to look dull with low contrast and brightness. If that is the case, you may find on your model that the screen either pulls out or that there is a wood piece at the bottom that is hiding some screws or maybe the speaker grill needs to be removed to expose said screws. Be gentle cleaning the mirror, as it is surface coated and could be scratched easily.
