My 60" screen has spiders webs visible on the inside of the plastic screen. The top and back section looks solid, as in glued 3/4 MDF. I can, by removing the speaker cover panel and the scress at the bottom of the screen frame, take the bottom loose and it just comes a little loose about 1/2 way, but it still seems attatched at the top. The vent panel behind the TV is very low and only about 20 " high, no way to access the inside of the top from there. Any help is appreciated.

BTW ... I contacted Hitachi, they said block 1/2 the vent holes and put a vacuum on the other side of the vent holes to **** the dirt out (OMG like this will work LMAO) I said to him there is no way that would get the cob webs off the inside of the screen, he said "your on your own then" Boyyyyy now THATS customer service ;)

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.

without knowing the model number; some you can remove the rear cover and gain access with a swiffer type duster and clean the webs out(also clean the lens at the same time) Others: the only easy way is to remove the screen--not real easy if you have never done it before---most outside service techs will be happy to come to your home and clean the webs out; also clean the lens and the mirror.
First: do not take front screen off for cleaning--easy way is to remove entire black plastic shroud (you look at back of set and you will see 2 silver pegs near top edge) This set uses torks type screws---you need to remove several and the entire upper plastic in back comes off. The mirror is suspended separate from this.With the shroud removed you can clean the lens of the 3 picture tubes or any debris on the inside of the screen----do not use glass cleaner on the screen; but if you have smudges or bugs on the inside just use a very fine soft cloth(you may need to moisten it slightly) Any mark you make will show! If you find you have spider webs use a swiffer type duster to remove them.

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....
The front screen with the frame does remove from the cabinet giving you access to the mirror and CRT lens. Remove the speaker grill,remove the four screws on the bottom of the frame, then working underneath a corner proceed to pop the rivets holding the frame to the cabinet. It will seem impossible at first because you have to use a lot of force to pop each one out.When reinstalling,a rubber mallet may help popping each rivet back in (I am not kidding when I say they are tight)
Yes, I have seen this many times. Usually the best way is to remove the upper back cover and clean out the spider webs with a soft, dry cloth, but be careful because the mirror is mounted to the inside of the cover.
I have a panasonic 53 inch and have had the same problem on numerous occasions. I removed the backing of the television, stuck my vaccuum cleaner hose inside the tv and sucked out the spider and the web.
