Air Filter and Vent Maintenance

Cleaning the Air Filter and Vents
Clean the projector's air filter or vents if they get dusty, or if you see a message telling you to clean them.
1. Turn off the projector and unplug the power cord.
2. Gently remove the dust using a small vacuum designed for computers or a very soft brush (such as a paintbrush).
Note: You can remove the air filter so you can clean both sides of it. Do not rinse the air filter in water, or use any detergent or solvent to clean it.
Caution: Do not use canned air. The gases may leave a flammable residue or push dust and debris into the projector's optics or other sensitive areas.
3. If dust is difficult to remove or the air filter is damaged, replace the air filter.
Replacing the Air Filter
You need to replace the air filter in the following situations:
After cleaning the air filter, you see a message telling you to clean or replace it

You can replace the air filter while the projector is mounted to the ceiling or placed on a table.

Projector Lamp Maintenance
Replacing the Lamp
Before you replace the lamp, let the projector cool down for at least one hour so the lamp will not be hot.
Warning: Let the lamp fully cool before replacing it to avoid injury.
You can replace the lamp while the projector is mounted to the ceiling, if necessary.
1. Turn off the projector and unplug the power cord.
2. Allow the projector lamp to cool down for at least one hour.
3. Use the screwdriver included with the replacement lamp to loosen the screw securing the lamp cover.
Warning: If the lamp is broken, glass fragments may be loose inside the lamp chamber. Be careful removing any broken glass to avoid injury. If the projector is installed on the ceiling, stand to the side of the lamp cover and not underneath it; pieces of glass could fall into your eyes or mouth when you open the lamp cover.
