I have an optical block issue with my KDS-60A2020 and can't figure out how to remove the Optical block Assembly.  All other parts disassembled but just can't seem to find that hidden screw.  I can see the slides where it pulls out...

Does anyone have the Service manual?

Welcome to Agoraquest!  You could order the service manual following the instructions above.  However, I can tell you that the mounting screws are recessed several inches, so it takes a long screw driver to get to them.

thanks, can you provide me a photo of where.  I looked for it for over 2 hours.  I saw another post, where it was said that there was one screw behind the front bezel holding it on.

I don't have access to the service manual for your set.  The optical assemblies that I have seen have mounting screws in each of four corners.  The screws are short.  Take a flashlight and look hard.  You should be able to located them.  They are through tabs at the front of the assembly (opposite of what you see from the rear).

Thanks.  For future folks...SXRD KDS-60A2020 Optical Block screws are behind the front Bezel.  You can easily remove the bezel with a small flat head screwdriver.  Gently pry out and it should pop out.  Two screws hold the OB in place. 
Also, three lens fell out, not sure of placement in optical path. can you help?  could not seem to figure out how to attach Picture.  Three colors...Blue, Orange and magenta?  I did take picture before, but the flash makes it difficult to see the colors.  It appears blue is in the middle, not sure of other two.  Also, there is what looks like a thin sheet attached to the lens.  This appears to go inside the optical path?

If the lenses fell out, you removed the wrong screws.  The screws that I was talking about attach the optical assembly to the set.  The lenses won't fall out if you remove them.  Removal of the screws allows you to remove the optical assembly from the set after disconnecting the cables.

You have a huge problem if the lenses fell out.

not a big problem.  i worked on military lens for CLU Javelin.  no scratches, nicks...etc.  Just cleaned them up with cotton gloves.  just need to know which order they go back into the guides.
