Can't get the front panel off

We can't get the front panel/frame off to repair the crack front screens. Tops and sides are free but bottom won't come apart.

  • Kat Art Jun 20, 2007

    Thanks for the help....Do you know if this is this explained in detail in the Sony Service manual...I just ordered it. Also are these screws the two with the red markings on them (each on the left and right farsides)? and are there only two? ...we felt like there were hidden screws somewhere because we just couldn't get the bottom portion of the frame to come undone? Does it snap out of place? or is it held together by just these magnets you mention?
    Thanks again....

    I need to get the front panel (screen) off so I can check the heaters under the crts. My red and green go off after 2-3 minutes. I noticed you offered to send a eschematic to someone else - would you send me one as well? Thanks

Door frame on microwave broke apart

If it is out of warranty, I'd just buy another. Most repairs would cost more than a replacement nowadays.

Protection Screen

Hollyga,Contact me on live Session and will tell you.....ttech

Broke mpthe mirror in my WS-55313 Mitsubishi projection tv while moving it. Just wondering how much it will cost to get a new one. Is less than 100 dollars reasonable? We dropped it while moving it and the...

A few notes:

First if the mirror which hangs at a angle facing the screens comes apart it can come forward and smash the inner screen.

The best way to proceed is remove the entire front screen frame:

remove speaker grill on front under the screen (if cloth it should pull out in one piece (a few are two piece).

With it removed look under the bottom front edge of the screen unit--left to right there are several identical screws and you have to remove those.

If the front controls (vary by cabinet style) are in the bottom front of the screen unit there will be wires from them hanging down--should be an inspection plate dead center behind where the grill was.

follow the wires from the front control board down with the inspection plate removed and locate the one or two inline plugs and disconnect them (they pull apart and are marked)

With the screws at bottom of screen frame removed and the keyboard free pull out the frame from bottom and slid up about 4-6 inches the entire frame with the screens still in it.

Do not when you do this twist the frame as you can pop the screens right out.

Set the frame and screens to one side making sure not against the screens and avoid touching the inside screen inside the frame.

You should now be able to see the mirror clearly, be careful if cracked as when you release the screws that hold it in it may come apart and use gloves---broken mirrors are very sharp.

Mirror should if you see the plastic and wood slots for it not be too hard to remove and replace. Vac out any small glass as light from the set inside can reflect onto the new mirror or even the inside of the inner screen and be seen in the picture.

You almost certainly are going to have to get the mirror from Mitsubishi---price it with shipping but since its a 55 inch mirror almost any mitsubishi mirror that size will work perfectly--some shops save them....hint.

Most of those mirrors were at or over 100 dollars and a few sites on the net sell replacements in case Mitsubishi is too high.

Hope this helps and let me know if need advice.

How do you get the front cover off a sony kp-57ws500

There are two screws that hold the spealer panel on ( they have plastic plugs covering the two screws. Then the screen frame will have some screws along its bottom edge remove those then grab the screen frame on each side and slide upwards to disengage the screen Be careful to unplkug the wires from the screen frame before you remove the screen frame completely so as to not damage the wires.

I dont have a owners manuel for my stratoliner not sure where the oil plug is it is a 2006 1900

sitting on the bike it's on the left side front bottom of the motor between the frame rails coming out the side of the bottom towards the left. It comes out the left side front bottom inside the frame rail. An open end or closed end wrench needs to be used as theirs not enough room for a scocket and handle. won't fit. It's either 19 or 17 MM.

I suppose that the required quality of the frame repair depends partly on how much you plan to stress the frame before you have the opportunity to do a complete repair. I suggest you take it easy on the truck (don't go wheeling) until the frame is fully repaired and reinforced.

Repair inner screen on my 50h71 toshiba

Remove the lower speaker panel. Then you will see a series of screws along the bottom edge of the screen frame. remove those screws and then grasp the screen frame and slide it up slightly to disengage the upper clips then lift the screen assembly away enough to unplug the wire and then the screens can be accessed.

The protective screen cover to our Hitachi model 51uwx20b is cracked. (collided with a Wii controller!) I know I can replace the plexiglass but do not know how to remove the broken one. Can someone give me...

Most of the Hitachi's have to be removed from the front; remove the speaker grill assembly(it usually pulls off and is held in place with plastic pegs. Once it is removed locate at the bottom edge of the screen; remove several screws(left to right) that secure it. Most of these frames are snapped in--held in place and you need to start on the lower left and then right side to pull them free---some are in very tight---take your time and pull from bottom first and then sides--a few also have a notch on top which means when the bottom and sides are free you have to lift the frame up and out a bit to get the entire unit free. They go back the same way(top edge first) and if you find the inside of the frame has some metal posts you need to tap the frame back once it is in position.

I do this here for free so if this helps you give me a vote here. If you have questions let me know here.
