Abrasive cleaners, solvents or other harsh chemicals might scratch the lens. 2 Lightly wipe the cleaning cloth over the lens in a circular motion. 3 If you don’t intend to use the projector immediately, replace the lens cap. Cleaning the Lamp Filter Screens In dirty or dusty environments, the dust filter screens on and around the lamp module can become clogged, causing high temperatures inside the lamp module. These high temperatures can cause premature lamp failure. Routine maintenance to remove dust and dirt from the screens lowers the lamp operating temperature and prolongs lamp life. To maximize lamp life you may want to clean the screen every 250 hours. 1 Remove the lamp module. Refer to “Replacing the Projection Lamp” on page 30 for instructions. 2 Examine the dust filter screens on the lamp module and in the lamp housing area. If necessary, use a vacuum cleaner set on low power to clean the screens.
