We have a cracked outer screen on this tv, it looks like plexy-glass. Is it possible to repair it myself, I checked with some repair shops and it would cost around $600.-$800., not sure I want to spend that much. This tv is under three years old. Please advise, thank you.

Hi I am vortash I have just looked at the service manual for this set and it actually does not use a bulb as it is not an Lcd or DLP projection TV . It actually employs three CRT based tubes that produce the picture with automatic focus and convergence systems .
If you do not have the manual for this set you can download it from
http://www.safemanuals.com free of charge
It says that if you have sound and no picture turn the set off and unplug it for 3o seconds then replace plug and turn on from switch on set not from the wall plug switch .. as this may reset the tv and cure the problem .. hope this helps regrads Vortash
The plexi glass if a "special formulation" and costs around $350 if available!. I would go to some repair shops and see if they have old junker sets (city dump) that you can get the screen and if you have to cut it to size.. Cheap fix... please rate!
not personally order them no, mitsubishi will not let private parties order servisable parts, so u will need to order it through a service man, then, take of the back part side part etc... can be done, but before u get to it u will feel like u own a hardware store with all the screws they put in. be carefull not to touch the mirror!!!
There are trim pieces around the edges that can be removed by sliding a
knife underneath and lightly prying. They should remove fairly easily,
don't force them as they may break. Use the knife on the cabinet side
and pry toward the center of the screen.
The tear on the inner screen may be best left as is.
lexan would be better than plexi as it is tougher, but try to get
anti-glare if possible. Anti-glare plexi would be better than regular
