You must remove the top back cover, but be careful and handle it gently because the mirror is attached to the inside of that cover. When the cover is removed you will be able to clear out any spiders, spiderwebs and dust and be sure to clean the 3 lenses on top of the 3 picture tubes.

How do I remove a spider from inside the screen?

Nice... check and see at the back of the tv if there are screws around the frame which houses the screen, if so, carefully unscrew and disassemble. if not, the you'll have to go through the rear of the unit removing the back cover and again check to seewhat holds the screen inplace. time and patience is important. I also highly suggest you take pictures with your cell as you go through the disassembly steps, for a back reference.

Spider webs behind screen

Pardon me but do you mean the screen has spider web looking patterns all over it? Or are you saying that spiders have crawled into your set and spun webs to catch flies?

If you have a spider web pattern problem then something has impacted your television screen and it is broken. You can check and see if your homeowner's insurance covers this, contact a service provider to see if they want to buy the television for its parts, and contact Mitsubishi to see if they offer a discount or pro rated rate on a new or refurbished television for when things like this happen.

If the problem is that you have spiders in your television I do not recommend vacuuming it out. I have seen people's televisions go out after they attempt to remove dust and webs that way. In this instance I also recommend contacting a servicer and the manufacturer.

The pilot light only partially lights and goes out when turn knob to wide open position.

i'm guessing here it may be that the pilot from where the flame comes from may have a spider web or something similar in it when i did my training on servicing some certain heaters the instructor told me about this and i thought it was a big joke until it happened to me and yes did find a very fine silky web inside pilot so when flame came out it was very yellow and went up in the air like a cigerettte lighter flame, not a blue horizontal flame like it should be so it didn't make any contact on thermocouple and wouldn't change no matter how much i adjusted i was going to order new pilot assembly when i remebered about what i was told and took pilot out to find a spider web in the pilot, this usaully happens over summer or warmer periods where spider gets into fire box then crawls into pilot as it is a safe place till you use the gas and kill the spider but leave a silky web inside pilot tube atop of the bonnet for pilot!

Spiders inside my Toshiba DLP TV.

This is an interesting problem. I'd say the most inexpensive bet is to place some spider traps outside the Television and let the sweet scent attract the spiders. It might work over the period of several days. More info here:

How do I dust inside the screen of a Rear projection TV?

Unplug tv first Usually you can pop the front screen off the set. There may be two hidden catches depending on the model. You may want to use two people for this. Once the screen is off removed the spider web and clean the back mirror with some windex, don't clean the inside of screen with any cleaner. Replace carefully the screen making sure it clicks back correctly

Spiderwebs under Screen, how do i clean it ?

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.
