The lenticular screen for my TV is in many pieces and needs to be replaced. I have been looking around for replacements and haven't had any success. Is it possible to use a lenticular screen from a different company without any loss in picture quality? Do you have any suggestions about finding a replacement?
I agree with you chipjenn. I too call all the repair shops around our area and even nearby county but with no sucess. I have a hatchi 50UX22B projection TV. The lenticular was cut in the middle and someone decided to removed it. Very big mistake. Everything works, you can still watch TV by the picture is not that clear beacuse of the colors not aligning. If some one could hel us find where to get lenticular, please post it. Greatly appreciate it.
I have been looking around for one myself. And have actually resorted to calling all of the "Mom&Pop" repair shops in town to see if they have one in the backroom or something. The problem is that most of the finds you get for lenticular on the web have to do with advertising signs and baseball cards. These lenticular sheets are only similar in how they feel to the touch. The lenticular lense on a rear projection tv actually blocks the image behind it and diffuses the light at specific angles. It is also very likely the specific manufacturers used slightly different pitches in the viewing angle, so that you have to replace it with their screen. I will definately continue to watch this posting because I need one as well.

there are 2 functionality screens and 1 screen protector (on some) front screen = lenticular back screen = fresnel very front screen = screen protector (you can replace w plexiglass)
the fresnel and lenticular are very specific.. contact your local repair center for a new one. you can cut them from old screens but have to do just right (fresnel is a lens type - pic will be distorted if off center)
maybe find a old junker tv to pull screens from because new ones are about $100 a piece
First, which screen do you need -
The lenticular screen is dark in color is rough and has ridges.
There is a fresnel screen behind it.
IF you have a screen protector that is smooth, clear and see through, it would be the very first screen you can see and feel.
If your TV is the square shaped, 4:3 ratio TV, Mitsubishi has probably stopped production on replacement lenticular screens. HOWEVER, we have a couple of those screens still in stock.
After you take the frame off, lay it on a table or put a sheet down on the floor before you lay the frame down. You may need to take the frame apart to get the lenticular screen out.
Or try here, they seem to be able to find hard to find replacement parts, including lenticular screens for Projection TVs:
