Have a dark blotch on bottom right of screen. What is this? Transported in the rain and fear water got through carefully wrapped plastic. Help

After moving my Akai Projector TV today I now have a dark blotch, mark along the bottom right hand corner of screen. Did I bang it against something or get water down in it? Thanks for any feedback, love my mom's Akai!!! Cannot beat picture & especially sound!!

Possibly got water down corner of screen. Liquid will wick-up between the screens if this happens. Sometimes wicks 3-4 inches. The way to tell if its water is it will be visible with TV off with a flashlight.

It's possible the mirror has dome dust on it from jostling during the move. W dried water spot will do it too. The front screen will come off by removing the screws on the bezel. Be extremely careful cleaning the mirror.Any scratch by a cleaning cloth (never use paper) will permanently ruin it.

Hmm... should evaporate on its own. The only way to access behind the screen is to take the whole back off the TV, and then inside theres another panel that covers the main reflector and screen. I wouldnt recommend doing that just for water tho.

I have a GE Profile, GSD4930X73WW, dishwasher. The upper wash arm is not spraying well at all. I checked the water line from the pump to the upper arm and it's fine. I cleared the filters and cleaned...


Most likely the cause would be a blocked screen entering the pump. There is a small "shredder" spring immediately in front of it which shreds soft food waste. Many times plastic wrap gets into the unit and will block the round holes in that screen, thereby reducing water supply to the pump. Low supply means loss of pressure and that means no water to top wash arm. Access is done by removing the large white coarse filter, located behind the lower wash arm, lifting the oval plastic screen just below that and reaching in to the bottom reservoir. BE CAREFUL OF GLASS AND OTHER SHARPS! Gently clean out that area and feel for the final round screen that leads to the pump. This is the one that gets blocked with debris. Some can be "scrubbed" with an old toothbrush, but if there is plastic wrap in it, you will have to scrape it with fingernails and pick it out. Another, more time consuming way, is to remove the entire motor pump assembly and dismantle it.
Good luck. Let us know if it helped.

Remove protective film wrap from under water dispenser faceplate


I have this same model and was facing the same issue. I even emailed Whirlpool but that didn't help.

You can remove the faceplate by removing the spill tray and unscrewing the two small screws in the bottom. Be careful not to scratch the finish while removing the screws.

The faceplate is held on by several plastic hooks around all edges. Carefully grip the bottom of the faceplate (I put my thumbs on the inside where the spill tray was and my index finger below the bottom front of the faceplate). Get a good grip by pinching the faceplate and pull down and out to remove the bottom. Then push the faceplate up to unhinge the top.

You can let the faceplate hang by the wires while you remove the plastic. I'd also use a stainless steel cleaner while the faceplate is off to get rid of any fingerprints you may have left behind.

To reinstall, hang the faceplate on the top 3 hooks making sure there is a snug fit. Then pull down on the bottom and push it in. It took me two tries to get it back on.

The plastic is stronger than it looks but you'll still have to go slow and be careful with it. Good luck!

Dark Blotches


This is probably caused by dust, either on the mirror, lens, or possibly inside the light engine. There is a 5" dia hole on the side of the back of the tv where you can take out one screw and take the door off. this is just big enough for you to put your hand through to clean the mirror and lens. Hope this helps.

Dark Blotch on rear projection TV screen


usually these are caused by cleaning the screen with a damp cloth or fkuid rear projection tv's usually have two plastic screens separated by about quarter inch with bulbs between,one being a magnified screen.problem is,condensation can occur causing various blotches,letting the screens naturly dry out usually solves this but failing this you have to strip down and wipe them with clean dry cloth.be careful though the inside screen is very delicate.

Dark blotches / Dirty behind screen


it could be dust in the mirror or in the optics,in this set if im not mistaken you have acces to the mirror from the back, anywhere from 12-20 screws it sould be easy to remove plastic cover first and the the mirror.this mirror are very delicate you dont want to leave fingr prints on it it will show just like the dust is showing right know. taking the mirror off will also give acces to the lense.
use someting soft to clean it.

Dim picture from one broken lamp??


The red CRT is most likely not the culprit. If water got on to any of the boards such as the red CRT driver board it could damage it wich also at the same time can load down voltages (200 volts etc) that can have a global affect on the other CRT's. Changing any on the CRT's by the average consumer is NOT recommended because you are dealing with a device that requires 30 KV (thats thirty thousand) volts to make it light up. Take these as warnings and consult with a technician.
