Someday I will clean the mirror on my 92840. Someday, just not today though wink.gif

Just another blank signature.

It's really not hard at all. Now that I know how it comes apart, I'd say the whole process would take about 15 mins.

Here's a pic I just posted in another thread to show where the screws are (on my WD73740) if your curious.



Red screws are in the back, green covered in the front.

It made a huge difference on my TV, but my mirror was exceptionally dirty. biggrin.gif

BTW, to see just how dirty your mirror is - open up one of the side "portholes" and wipe off a section of the mirror.

WARNING: if you do this, you're gonna end up cleaning the whole mirror. wink.gif

Oh yeah, and don't try to clean the whole mirror from the porthole - ask me how I know! tongue.gif

It is a bit bigger job with the 92840. I won't even attempt without a couple of people here who are willing to hang in and around for a few hours.

Does the screen attach a lot differently on the 93" vs. the 73"?

For me, it would only take about 15-20 minutes now that I know what I'm doing.

See this thread, but I didn't really describe the cleaning method - I just used glass cleaner and paper towels.

New Thought: What will be the replacement for our dead Mits'?????????

My 82740 Mits is about 3.5 years old now and 6000 hours on the lamp. What will be the replacement for the cost effective DLP units (paid $1700 new) in the 80+ inch range?????

DLP are no longer being produced, but for other options, see this thread.
