I have a 53" Panasonic. I'm not too scared of opening the sucker up if I have to. I even fixed the dreaded 'evil pop' myself. But anyway, today I noticed a large black spider on the inside of the screen. Since I've had the TV for over 2 years now I figured it was time to open it up and try to find him. Once I popped open the back, I used a vacuum extension hose to suck him off the screen. I also ended up sucking away any stray spiderwebs and dust. I have two questions for the experts: 1) I noticed some dust buildup on the glass top of the red/green/blue lenses. Would I dare try to wipe this off? Should I use a 'windex wipe' or something similar, a dry lint-free cloth, or just leave it alone. 2) The electronics shield in the Panasonic, the particle board that easily slides in and out and separates the electronics from the top portion of the TV is light particle board colored. I've heard that you should paint this flat black to get a better picture. Is this true? If so, any special paint you would recommend? Thanks!
