    Hope these are of use, just my simple guide to dismantling and cleaning and Epson S1/4 and a couple of photos from an Sony EMP-EX1 dismantle. Also included the Epson S1-S4 and Sony VPL-EX1 service manuals which describe the dismantle procdures quite well.

    Thanks. We don't have any of these but you inspired me to rip apart one of our useless old NEC VT440Ks... was unusable in a classroom before, cleaned it out and it's as good as new now!

    My school has some dirty floors that need doing, have mop, need some of you cleaners in fast! Glad you all enjoy cleaning so much. Wish i had time to spend hours cleaning projectors and boards... lol Barely get 15 minutes to get a security clamp and projector off the ceiling and a bulb replaced.

    I kind of resent having to clean projectors and whiteboards. Guess that is why i do not do it. But dang! some of them classroom boards are faded and hard to use. Sucks to be a teacher i guess lol.

    BTW i am at least 50% joking here.

    Right, and the next contestant is...The Philips BSure SV2 projector (and I'm sure a few other similar Philips models). Here's a simple strip down procedure with a few notes and photographs, unfortunately it was my first B.C.S (Beyond Cleaning Stage) as one of the internal light filter plates had become burnt due to overheat at some time I presume, shame really as ther rest would have been perfect given a good dust clean, unless anyone has a Philips Bsure SV2 (or very similar as I'm sure the plates would be the same) waiting to be scrapped that they would want to donate?

    Hope this guide helps anyway.

    Awesome, I have one of these in my room. :P

    Did another of the VT440s today and an ancient Sanyo. Would do a guide for the NECs but they're so old I doubt many actually use them still.

    Well if it turns out to be unusable you now know someone who may require a part of it Glad you may find it of some use. Next one could very well be a panasonic

    Did you take the prism assembly apart or just clean it as a whole?

    Cleaning a Sanyo Pcl-xe40

    Did Gromit ever do his guide? I have not long joined a school with a number of these projectors which need a clean and a guide or any info on how it is done would be great. Thanks in advance to anyone who can give me help.

    Did the manual ever get completed for the Sanyo PLC-xe40? I am at a school that every room has one and they all need cleaning very bad. We do not have the funds for replacements so I figured someone better clean them

    If the projector needs cleaning and without one its not much use, then just take out the screwdriver and methodically start to strip one. So long as you are sensible its not that bad. Having done a few now they seem to follow similar lines. The hardest job is usually getting in to the case itself.

    steps to open and reset the overheat trigger

    Sanyo PLC XE-40

    1-first you need to take off the screws shown in picture 1.(7 screws).
    2-pull over the upper case half.
    3-as shown is the other 2 pictures try to insert something that is hard and narrow until you feel the tick
    (this tick means that you reset the heat trigger to its original case).
    so the projector can work normally now.

    regards
