I have an old Magnavox 51MP6200D tv, as I was transporting it to my daughter the front screen blew inside the cabinet, it did not brake, is there a way to remove the front plastic piece to make it easy to slide the screen back in.?
tried to put the screen back in the rubber track,but afraid to break it.
Hi. I'm Steve. I'm sorry to hear about your TV. I will try my best to give you a precise and accurate answer.
The screens sit inside a 'picture frame' arrangement. Once you get the 'frame' off the TV you can remove one of the 4 sides and slide the screens in. Then put the side back and you are good to go.
Usually, the screen frame is held down by 4-6 screws along the bottom side. Remove the speaker grills and you should see the screws. Remove them and the frame should pull out and up as it hinges on the top.
Have a look at that while I try to find a manual.
Let me know if you get stuck?
Steve, no screws holding the frame on, there are blocks of wood nailed in, holding the frame in place.Any pictures of the breakdown available?
This is an odd one. I think the lenses come out from the rear.
The upper rear plastic assembly has to come off first. Here is a picture of that: http://screencast.com/t/FY03QuooTr
Take that off first and then see if you can put the screens back from the rear.
I'll be here if you need more help.

Steve, the rear of the cabinet does not come apart, it is glued in place - no screws to take out, the rear is not plastic, solid wood pieces,all sealed with silicon or something similar. Any idea's?
That is weird.
Can you snap a few photos of the TV? I'm most interested in the front. You can post them right here using the paper clip icon.
Or, you can post them to www.imgur.com and give me the download code.
I'm sorry about this but my service manual is obviously not applicable to what you have there.
Steve, I will not be able to take/send you photos until tommorrow,is that ok? I have the TV here at my office but my camera is at home. My phone is an old Direct Connect Nextel-no photo capability.Thanks Brian
I'll be alerted when you post them and will try and get with you as quick as possible.

Steve,the frame holding the lens comes off in 1 piece by gently prying off with a screw driver,then the entire section comes off.
