It is dielectric coatings so just try to clean it off. The coating is military grade and designed to be cleaned with most things softer than sandpaper. So give cleaning it a try and see if that fixes it.
I should have mentioned, I did disassemble and clean per TV's instructions. It is definitely not something on the surface.
Contact TeleVue by phone. They may want to look at it.
It looks like something got dragged across the mirror, maybe right before coating.
At any rate, something eluded QC.
Hopefully, we're not just looking at the reflection of something.
100% not a reflection. The form of these markings looks like the pattern that glass makes when it shatters and they are constant, they do not change when the angle is changed. The "cracks" go from left to right across the entire surface (even under the corners where not visible unless the mirror is removed).
He said he got it in a bundle of other items. Perhaps garage sale, estate sale, etc. I’m assuming it isn’t new and this is the result of prior use (or misuse) rather than a TV QC issue.
Yes, it is not new and it could have spent it's life in a 400 degree oven for all I know. This isn't a shot at TV, just wondering if anyone else has seen this.
Are they reflections off the pattern on the right wall or reflecting that pattern onto the right wall? A & B
What is C?
See above, certainly not reflections. What you're seeing is the reflection of the "threads" which cover the entire inside of the diagonal, probably serving as flocking. These marking are also visible with the mirror removed from the body.
The mirror is very easy to remove and re-install. I'm sure the factory will advise you to clean it using their procedure before you do anything else.
If there is anything on the mirror it shouldn't be difficult to remove. If you follow the procedure you won't damage the mirror.
See above, it has been cleaned. I will try to make a video of this tomorrow to better showcase what I see. The photos just do not capture it well.
