Cleaning and Replacing the Air Filter

Solution

Cleaning and Replacing the Air Filter

An air filter is installed in the air intake vent on the bottom of the main body to protect the lens and mirror from dust. Should the air filter become clogged with dust, the projector may be damaged since it will block the air flow into the projector and raises the temperature of the projector. The following screen is displayed when turning on the projector if the air filter needs to be cleaned. Clean the air filter if such is the case.

  • Only [<], [>], the OK button, and the POWER button are available while this screen is displayed (When you press the POWER button, "Push POWER button again to turn off power." message appears).

  • After this screen has been displayed for 10 seconds and disappeared, all buttons become operable.

Cleaning the Air Filter

  • Turn the projector upside down, remove the cover by pushing the latch, remove the air filter, and clean it with a vacuum cleaner.

  • When cleaning dust off the side exhaust vent and the bottom air intake vent, bring the vacuum cleaner nozzle close to them directly.

  • If the above screen is displayed when turning on the projector after cleaning the air filter, select [Yes].
