HELLO. WELL YOU WILL NEED TO TAKE OFF THESPEAKERS GRILL'S ON THE FRONT OF THE SET .UNDER THEM YOU WILL FIND SCREW'S THAT HOLD IT ON . THE FRONT OF THE SCREEN IS THE FRENSEL & THE BACK SID OF IT IS THE LENTICULAR. LENZ. WHEN U CLEAN THEM USE ONLY SOAP AND WATER AND A VERRY SOFT CLOTH. NOTHING ELSE. OK AND FOR THE CRACK IN THE FRONT . YOU CAN USE ELMER'S GLUE . THE WHITE GLUE. IT DRY'S CLEAR. BUT MOST PEOPLE FIND A NEW ONE . ON LINE CHEP. WELL HOPE THIS HELP'S YOU.
"GOOD LUCK"

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!
