Cleaning the projector to remove dust and grime will help ensure trouble-free operation.

Cleaning the Projector Mirror

  1. Remove dust with a bellows or lens blower, readily available from camera shops to prevent scratching the mirror when subsequently wiped.
  2. Gently wipe with a lens cleaning cloth or alternatively, use a lens cleaning tissue in conjunction with a small amount of lens cleaning fluid.


  1. Always turn the projector off and allow to cool for at least 30 minutes prior to cleaning.
  2. Never touch the projector mirror or lens directly by hand.
  3. Do not use hard fibre cloths.
  4. Do not use abrasive cleaners, solvents or other harsh chemical cleaners.

Cleaning the Projector Case

  1. Wipe off dust with a clean, dampened cloth.
  2. Moisten the cloth with warm water and mild detergent (such as used to wash dishes), and then wipe the case.
  3. Rinse all detergent from the cloth and wipe the projector again.


To prevent discolouration or fading of the case, do not use abrasive alcohol-based cleaners.


  1. Be sure to turn off and unplug the projector at least 30 minutes before cleaning. Failure to do so could result in a severe burn.
  2. Use only a dampened cloth when cleaning. Do not allow water to enter the ventilation openings on the projector.
  3. If a little water gets into the projector interior while cleaning, leave unplugged in a well-ventilated room for several hours before using.
  4. If a lot of water gets into the projector interior when cleaning, have the projector serviced.
