Question about Akai PT5492S 54" Rear Projection Television
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.
