    Are you the only one at your place as well? I would never have time to do them all every month especially since they are always in use.

    Re: Cleaning projectors

    We've got 32... i'm a 5' 2" female (not that gender matters). My NM thinks i should be doing one every morning....by the time i was finished i'd have to start again!! I'm the only technician..

    The majority are promethean which is fine but then we got these stupid hitachi ones which i have to unbolt from the cradle before i can get anywhere near the filter!! Thats a 2 person job!!!

    It's not physically possible!!

    They're done every six weeks at best!

    Na, there is a NM. I always clean them every month. Just some of them were starting to go yellow. didnt fancy sending them off to Promethean and paying extreme prices. sorry promethean, but your not cheap.

    Re: Cleaning projectors

    Our projectors are cleaned whenever a teacher reports the 'change filter' message on the screen. There's no pattern or organisation to it, on top of everything else, we really don't have time to intorduce schedules for maintenance like this, much as we'd like to.

    Re: Cleaning projectors

    Lots of projectors require unbolting from the ceiling to clean the filters, to do this requires two hands and therefore precludes the use of ladder. HSE rules mean that you need three points of contact on the ladder. This means a tower is needed. Take a look at the HSE requirements for the use of mobile towers. Apparently it applies to the tiny mobile ones as well.
    http://www.hse.gov.uk/pubns/cis10.pdf
    90% of work related injuries are due to working at heights - the head/governors could be personally liable with a prison sentence if someone was injured.
    I did the ladder/tower/manual lifting courses and can happily say that I've not had the displeasure of cleaning a projector since I learned what was required (the school won't cough up for the equipment)
    Suggest getting a to get a contractor in to clean them.

    Re: Cleaning projectors

    it dosent take long imo.last week of the month, i will do 10 a day. i dont use compressed air, it sometimes can make the dust and fluff go damp making it stick more. I use lung power, for that reason why i only do 10 a day.

    I did once do them all in 1 afternoon and it sent me a little lite headed

    Re: Cleaning projectors

    When do you get the chance to do 10 projectors a day?

    i can do most of them in a day or 2 during the school holidays if i have another person with me and keys to other parts of the building..but not during normal school hours.

    I know im i trouble when the lights start flashing!

    Re: Cleaning projectors

    I do it 30 minutes before i leave work.

    Preventive maintenance is better than having to take the whole thing down phone the warranty people then package it to send off then wait a week or longer, then put it back up. 2-3 minutes is better than 10 minutes fanny arround and teacher doing with out projector for a week.

    doesnt take much time really... does it
