Default Help! water inside DLP projection tv

Hello, I was moving my samsung HLN4365 from the car to the house and it started raining. Some water seems to have gotten inside the screen and shows up as black in the corner. If i press on the screen cover the water moves a little bit. Does anyone have any suggestions about how to get the water out? Is it repairable? Thanks!

It sounds like it is trapped between the outer finger guard and the lenticular screen. Possibilities are to wait for it to evaporate, drill a small hole (very small) at the bottom of the finger guard, or take the screen apart. Waiting for it to evaporate may leave a residue, so I would not go that route.

Thanks for the response! It did evaporate but, unfortuantely you were correct about leaving a residue. How difficult would it be to take it appart and clean and would that solve the problem? thanks!

I have no idea how difficult it will be to take the set apart. Get a screwdriver and get started, I guess is what I would do. Yes cleaning should fix the problem.

I would suggest getting a service manual and reading the disassembly procedure prior to doing anything with that screwdriver. Projection TV's are sensitive and any wrong turn could lead to total disaster.

That's a good suggestion. You may be able to find a service manual for your TV at www.partstore.com

Default Water On The Screen

not a big deal just be careful on taking the screen loose and have someone help you hold it while you unscrew it/be patient : DOC
