Maintenance is very important and should be done on a regular basis. It doesn’t need to be done every day or every week, but I do recommend you do it at least once a month. Maintaining your projector will increase the lifespan of your projector and will ensure that the projector will work at its highest capabilities. Well, now let’s get to work.
How to Clean your Projector Air Filter
The first maintenance tip is changing out or cleaning out your air filter. We’re going to be cleaning an air filter. The first thing we need to do is locate where the air flutter is on your projector. So the easiest way is obviously opening up the filter door and removing the filter has a nice little handle here. So it’s extremely easy. Once you remove it to clean it, you could either tap it on the table to get rid of the loose dust or shoot it with a little compressed air.
If the air filter is clogged, the projector won’t be able to cool down and it could damage because it’s not breathing. It’s like having your nose clogged.
How to Wipe Down Outside of the Projector
The second maintenance tip I could give you today is wiping down the outside of the projector. This is definitely a good have your projectors hanging from the ceiling because it’s going to collect a lot of dust. So to get that done, you could do it one of two ways. You could grab the cloth from our nice maintenance kit and you get wiped down the outside of the projector. You want to flip it upside down and wipe that down as well. I also recommend getting a little bit of compressed air and just spraying it around. Just make sure all the dust is off.
How to Clean the Lens
The third maintenance tip should be done around the same time that you do tip number two, while you’re wiping down the outside of the projector. It’s probably a good idea to wipe down the lens. You have to be extremely careful when you do this because the lens is extremely fragile and you don’t want to put your fingertips on it. On this projector. We have a shutter door. So the first thing we want to do is open it up. Get your microfiber cloth and wipe it down very gently. You don’t want to put too much pressure. You just want to wipe down all the dust that has accumulated in there. This will ensure that your image is nice and crisp.
How to Clean All the Vents
And you’re done the fourth maintenance tip I could give you. It’s pretty much piggyback on number three and number two, but you want to grab the compressed air and you want to make sure that all the vents on the projector are dust-free. Like I said before, the vents are like your nose. You need that to breathe. And so does the projector. So you want to make sure you clean out all the events. There’s going to vent all over the projector. So just want to make sure you clean that out. All these little vents and that’s pretty much it.
Cleaning lamp cavity
So the last tip I’m going to give you today. It’s probably the one that’s gonna make you work the hardest. And it’s not even that difficult. It’s actually removing the lamp in the projector and cleaning out the lamp cavity. The reason why I say this is because a lot of dust accumulates inside the lamp cavity. And if you don’t clean it, sometimes you’ll get a burning smell coming for the projector. That’s because you have too much dust in there and the lamp gets extremely hot. So it starts burning that dust.
Avoid that, we want to clean it out. Like I said, at least once a month. So the next thing you want to do is grab the screwdriver and open up a lamp door and remove the lamp. Pretty much brings anything and everything you need to do maintenance on your predictor. Once you removed it, you want to use the compressed air, get rid of all that dirt and maybe wipe it down a little bit with that microfiber cloth that we provide. Maybe good idea to shoot it one more time with that compress there and make sure everything’s out and let’s install the lamp back in, make sure to, uh, line up the groove.
If you follow these simple tips that I just gave you on a regular basis, I guarantee you, you would extend the lifespan of your projector and your land. A clean projector is a happy and healthy projector.
