Http:// That stuff is the best you'll find. Ever. You'll need to take your TV apart to access the inside of the TV. Take the speaker grille off and possibly assembly frame surrounding the TV(They usually snap off) you should find screws under that to further assist with disassembly.

How do i clean the screen inside of ws-55613 55"

You will have to take the lower back off of the TV with the power off of course for safety. Only use like a Swiffer to reach in there to clean if the only issue is spider webs. If you use anything else you will end up scratching the screen assembly and they usually run between 300-500 for the assembly. Please take a few minutes to rate my answer...Thank you. :)

Cobwebs behind the screen of a 55" projection screen. How do I remove screen to clean the TV? I have a Mitisubishi WS-55809.

Hello morsec,

You will need to remove the screws on the back of the top half of the TV set. This will allow you to remove the top rear half of the TV and give you access to the screen. Make sure you do not break the mirror that is attached to the rear of the TV set. Clean the screen with a damp non-abrasive cloth dry with a dry non-abrasive cloth. When finish replace the back of the TV and tighten the screws to hand tightness.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Screen removal

a 2mm Allan Key either side 6 inches up from bottom of glass filter. Loosen then pull out from bottom then lift up to release the top and lift off. If the dust is still visible you can remove the next screen to access the diffusers and wipe with a dry cloth. Make sure you take note of the position of the light diffusers when reassembling.

Water stain on the front of our Akai PT5499 Projection TV

Hmm... should evaporate on its own. The only way to access behind the screen is to take the whole back off the TV, and then inside theres another panel that covers the main reflector and screen. I wouldnt recommend doing that just for water tho.

Mitsubishi 55'' rear projection 1080i hd tv lense cleaning

Pry off the lower speaker grill... Remove the screws at the lower edge of the screen framing and lift screen frame of the two catches at the top. Be careful, there will be wires still attached to the front button panel... Then lay the screen down and support the bottom of it in some way because the button panel wires won't reach all the way... then using windex and papertowel cleam the mirror and lens(s) on each of the crts. Also clean the back or inside of the screen area and reverse the process to re-mount the screen.
