    Projector Filters

    How do you clean yours? As far as I can see there's no choice other than taking the projector off the bracket as the filters are obscured by it, has anyone found a better way of doing it?

    We have cages here. There is no easy way to get to the filter apart from taking them out the cage.

    If you can't get to the filter then you could apply a vacuum cleaner to the filter and that's what most manuals state.

    I have an antistatic cleaner used for toner spillages and would prefer to use one of these for that job.

    All of mine can be accessed without removing the projector.

    Looks like I'll be using the caretaker's dustbuster-type battery vac. Our projectors have those mounting "plates" which stop you getting to the bottom face of the projector, and thus the filters are getting neglected...

    How unfortunate.

    On all the projectors I maintain, A smattering of EPSONS, Mitsubishis and Hitachis, the filters are all designed in a way that you can get to them even when the projector is in a cage.

    I guess it depends on the bracket though.

    I got the site manager to take an angle grinder to the plate, and cut a bit out so that I could get to the filters.
    I know that some people do actually take the projectors down every month but in my experience they never go back straight or level!
