My 82yo next door neighbor just purchased an Hitachi Ultravision HD set
(can't remember size but it's in the mid 50"s) and the protective screen is
extremely reflective and not working out well for her. It appears that I can
remove 8 or 10 screws and pull the entire bezel assembly off and possibly
remove the outer screen. Has anyone done this on the Hitachi sets? Any
issues cosmetically or otherwise in removing this screen?

Thanks for any tips or experience.

Yes, it is possible wit a bit of effort and skill. Once the screen assembly
is removed from the fascia bezel then the surrounding tape, etc will need to
be carefully removed to allow separation of the protector from the front of
the lenticular. Care is required in not flexing the lenticular since it will
crack very easily. Taking the protector of will eliminate it's reflection
and also it's protective functions. The lenticular will be more prone to
becoming damaged, dirty, stained, etc. However I presume the customer is
willing to take this in to account.

on Toshiba sets the protective screen provides support to keep the
lenticular and fresnel screens together. The protective screen is thicker
and stiffer than the lenticular screen and holds it against the fresnel
screen. Not sure about Hitachi, older Hitachi screens were stiffer and
held together better than Toshiba screens.

On My Akai (Samsung) the protective screen besides protecting and anti-glare
also slightly defocus the image sot the scan lines are invisible.

How do you keep the lenticular and fresnel lenses mounted securely if you
remove the front layer on these sets? I thought they needed it for the
brackets to secure the screens. Don't you have to shim these screens to
remove the protective layer?

Yes, Leonard, normally put just a bit of light foam between the lenticular
and the face frame, But that is professional process, not DIY!! BTW not the
self sticking kind tho, Yuk

As a professional, I would not do it at all and suggest that a DIYer play
with it himself. If I were to do it at all it would not be with foam but
with trim from a scrap screen protector that will not compress with time.
