Re: Cleaning the TV
On each side of the set is a round access panel.
Remove the oblong style cover to get to the screw that holds the round door on.
You should have access through the hole once the hole cover is removed.
Don't spray anything inside and cleaning should be done with a dry soft cloth.

you need to take the top back off the tv. and mind the glass at the top of the rear part top it is very fragile, most of the projection tv have a side cover on each side so you can clean the rear of the screen, as you not said what type screen you have i cannot tell you further.
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
I had the exact same problem and the fix is easy to do. Unplug the TV first of all and wheel it out so you can easily get to all of the rear screws.
Remove the screws from the ventilated back panel (the piece of wood with a bunch of holes in it surrounding the AV connection panel.
Remove the wood panel you just unscrewed.
Remove all screws from the upper plastic case on the back.
Remove the back plastic case carefully. This is a little tricky due to two metal pins that it hangs on. Lift it upwards and you should be able to free it from these pins
At this point you should be able to see the entire workings of the TV, and consequently the massive amount of dust that has accumulated.
Carefully take a vacuum and remove all the cobwebs, taking care not to bump the mirror or the lenses.
First, I used some compressed air to clean off the lenses and then used a clean microfiber towel to remove all the dust from the lenses, the mirror, and the screen on the inside. Make sure the part you are wiping the mirror and lenses off with is free from any dust or dirt or you will risk scratching them.
Reverse the dissasembly process to put the case back together.
I went through the convergance settings at this point and found that they were all out of calibration and as such recalibrated them. Use the mulitpoint calibration for best results.
take the back cover off as the mirror is attached to it then you can clean the mirror and the inside screen and colour gun lens's (3off) there should be 8 to 10 screws around the outer edge of frame and about 6 to 8 holding the screen portion to the chassis
CRT Rear-Projection - Before
you can begin cleaning, you need to determine if you do, or do not have
a screen shield. A screen shield is a hard plastic cover over the front
of the TV screen. If you can't tell, give the front of the TV a light
tap. Another way to tell is to check for ridges in the screen area. If
you can feel ridges on the screen, then you do not have a screen
shield. Rear projection TVs without a screen shield require a special
kind of cleaner and rag. These are available for purchase at your local
TV service center. Those that do have a screen shield should be cleaned
with a dry or damp soft cloth. If it's extremely dirty, a mild soap may
be used. Do not use paper products, such as paper towels, to clean the
screen shield. Paper products can easily scratch the surface of the
shield. Screen shields can have a tendency to streak while cleaning. If
this happens, use a dry cloth and buff the screen in a small circular
