I've got a 52 inch Toshiba rear projection TV. I also have a 3 year old
son. Yadda, Yadda, Yadda. So where can I get a replacement screen for my
TV. Are they all the same? Just the outside screen (the fresnel portion)
The outer lens is the lenticular, the inner is the fresnel. Call your local
shops or Toshiba distributors with the model number. Expect to pay at least
a couple hundred $ for it. If you measure the exact dimensions of the
screen from behind you might get lucky and a local shop will have one the
right size or one that they can cut to fit for cheap.
FWIW, replacing the lenticular is not as easy as you might think. The
lenticular screen is attached to the fresnel screen in a specific way so
that the fresnel screen is allowed to hang freely, which prevents it
from bowing. It's very easy to get small bits of debris in between these
two screens when assembling them, which can make visible shadows on the
