    Had my Toshiba 50" WS RP since January and love it, but unfortunately, just yesterday I noticed in one corner it looks like I've got moisture behind the screen! Any ideas what would cause that? Don't have any humidity problem in the house. Is there an easy way for me to get to the back of the screen or is it time to call in the warranty folks? Thanks!

    Well, if spiders can get back there, why not moisture.

    The screen assembly usually comes off fairly easily, pop the speaker cover off ... disconnect any grounding wires ...

    Disconnect the touch focus wires ... unscrew the 4 to 8 screws holding the screen assembly on. Lift up ...

    Regards

    Scott, you say you don't have a "humidity problem" yet you have moisture condensation behind the screen on that RPTV? Is the unit by any chance located near a bathroom, and has, say, the shower been run with the door still open? Or has it rained in your area, and the RPTV is near an open window? Moisture collecting behind the screen is a bit extreme.

    The TV is not near a bathroom or any windows. After further inspection yesterday, it doesn't appear that the moisture is really moisture b/c what I thought were water droplets are still there and have not spread or decreased. Now I'm really stumped as to what it is. I think I'm calling in the warranty folks.
