XBR Screen Restack/Removal

<< Back to Sony Tips

Tip from Michael TLV:  "Removing the Protective Screen – KP-**XBR10W 16:9 RPTV’s (57" and 65")

Here are the instructions in a nutshell. Pretty straight forward and relatively quick once you know what to expect.

  1. Remove the front speaker grill. It’s clipped in there and not by the super velcro either so it should be easy to pry off.
  2. Unscrew the screws at the bottom of the screen frame. (4 to 6 screws). Do not try to pull off the screen yet.
  3. Unscrew the front control panel. You need to disconnect the flash focus and power plug connected to the screen of the TV.
  4. Now it is time to take the front frame off. It is not as scary as the HS10 4:3 units. The frame actually pops off and the three piece screen is attached to the front of the TV. To take the frame off … look for two little boxes on the bottom left and right sides of the frame. Pop off the covers and you will find two more screws. Take them out. The frame is ready to come out.
  5. The frame pops out easily from the bottom end first. There is a small upper lip that holds the frame on. Small click clips hold the frame on the sides.
  6. With the frame off and safely put aside, you will note that the screen assembly is held on the TV by about eight metal strips.
  7. Unscrew the top two strips, but do not take the screws off. You don’t need to. Once you unscrew the screws enough, the metal strips have enough space to just slide out.
  8. Now remove the two metal strips on either the left side or the right side, but not both. Pick one side. Same procedure as the top strips. Hold onto the screen though. Do not want it to drop.
  9. Loosen the screws on the other side just a bit and on the bottom as well. The screen easily slides out. The three pieces of the screen are taped together so you have to loosen the tape to get the protective screen out of there.
  10. Takes about 15 minutes. Now remove the protective screen or restack it to the back.
  11. You might want to take the opportunity to clean the protective screen at this time before you finish the restack.
  12. Take the 3 pieces back to the TV and place the screen in the bottom lip first and slide it into the metal strips on the side that you left on.
  13. Retighten … and put it all back together. Remember to plug the power plug back in behind the front cover.
  14. All done."
