    Just got the new 65H80 into the house and hooked up. In a couple of different places there is what looks to be a couple of pieces of stringy looking lint visible on the picture.
    I can't really tell if it's on the back of the screen or maybe on one of the CRT tubes. Anyone else seen anything like this on these TOSH units?
    TIA...

    P.S. Already posted this over on the Spot board for Toshibas, as well.

    My guess is that it's probably on the back of the screen, which is fairly easy to remove. Of course, once you remove the screen you'll also have access to the CRT's so you might as well check those as well.

    I'll contact the dealer I bought it from and see what they recommend before screen removal, but how's it done on this unit?

    In short:
    1. Remove speaker grills - pull hard, they are stuck on with industrial strength velcro.
    2. Remove center plastic cover (8-10 screws).
    3. At the bottom of the screen assembly you will see four black metal tabs with two screws on each. Unscrew these eight screws.
    4. Pull bottom of screen out about 3-4 inches, and then lift up entire assembly (only weighs 10-15 lbs.).
    These are just basic instructions, but the process is really pretty easy. Of course, reverse the process to put it back on. And the normal warnings apply: be extremely careful no matter what you are doing.

    I just wanted to add that having your dealer rectify this problem would be preferable, of course.

    Hey Brett,
    For the 56H80 and the 65H80 is it necessary to remove the speaker grills and the plastic assembly before removing the screen ? I own a 40H80 and all I gotta do is take the 6 screws, that are holding the screen, out and that's it. Just curious.

    Eddie,
    Can't speak about the 56H80, but you definitely have to remove them all for the 65H80. Only then will you have access to the tabs.

    Gotcha, thanks Brett. I guess for a bigger beast you need tabs to support the weight of all em screens.
