SOURCE: I need to take the

You will need a phillips screwdriver (preferably 2 different sizes - some of the screws are tiny), q-tips and a can of wd-40.
On the back of the brookstone (the darker gray side) you will find 4 screws inside of 4 channels. Take these out.
Put the fan on its head. pry off the 5 rubber bases and set aside carefully so as they won't lose their stickiness. You will see 5 screws beneath these. Remove them and then remove the bottom plate. Now remove the 2 screws and washers, noting that the rounded side of the washer was facing you. Now pivot the base so that the 4 holes on the outer part of the base line up with the 4 screwsheads that are screwed into the tower. Take these out.
The 2 gray tower pieces should now separate easily. set the fan on a newspaper and blow away as much of the surface dust as your can. Now use your wd-40 (with a straw nozzle attached) and spray into the motor area where the actual fan turns. Also spray, from the top down, along the metal rod that connects the fan to the motor.
Now use the q tips, dipped into warm water, to clean the dust from the fan "blades" and to clean any other nooks and crannies you can see.
Lube the motor up one more time, put the machine back together and leave to dry out overnight.
Will work like a charm afterwards.

How do I disassemble a Vizio E3D470VX Smart TV, to clean out the dust inside the Screen


Hi Alonzo,
To clean the dust inside the screen, you will have to disassemble the LCD panel. It is a very risky job and there is every chance of damaging the LCD screen unless you have a real good experience of doing it. If you are not good at doing such jobs, please let some professional do it for you.

Acer Radiator fan will not shut off PC Desktops


LOL, some fans will not shut off, this is normal in some case. But, to be sure your system is not running real hot to keep the fan running try this:
Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Case and take a can of compressed air and blow out dust from the computer's vents and all inside the computer. Also blow out dust from around the power supply and fans.

If it still runs all the time you can remove the fan that sits on top of the cpu and heatsink and clean the dust and apply a fresh coat of Thermal Paste to the CPu and HeatSink.

Real hard to see & not focused 5 feet in front of whatever trying to look at.


Try this, take both lens out. All you have to do is just unscrew the lens. Use a very good optic lens clean with anti-static charging elements in the clearner. Only remove lens in a room semi free of dust, mites--little monster that live in the carpet, flaky skin, pet hair, etc. If it is dust inside of the NV devise, use a computer air spray to clean the inside. Assembly in reverse order. stewbison

How do I get in there safely to clean the mirror?? what do i unscrew first etc.. it still working just fine but the color is going after 15 years and i need to clean the inside.


Hello.
I would not recommend you to touch the mirror. It is hanged sort of reflection surface facing down so it is not real dust collector. You can clean lenses of your CRT tubes (red, green and blue) to improve your picture. Just remove rear cover taking out black and golden screws and you will see dusty lenses right away in the middle of the TV. Use DRY "Bounty" paper towels to remove dust from lenses, don't wet it with any solutions or it will leave film on optics. Just in circular motion move dust to the black plastic edges of lenses. Don't worry about some specs of dust that inevitable will be left behind - they will not affect image at all like thick layer of dust do.
Regards.
Russ.

Apple Cinema Display 23" HD - Dust on inside of screen.


Well, I pretty much knew that the display would have to be disassembled to clean the dust out. I should have been more specific by asking if the display "could" be taken apart to clean it out, especially since the dust is in between the image and light source layers.

Annoying ticking


My air purifier was doing the same thing. The ticking noise you are hearing is caused by dust build up on the ionizer pins. When the ionizer pins collect too much dust, they tend to start making the clicking/ticking sound caused by static electricity. The solution is simple. Take the filter out and clean it real good (follow directions on filter on how to clean). Now, with the filter out, if you look down inside the vent where the filter was, you'll see a white piece of plastic with nine holes in it that are about the size of a silver dollar. Directly in the center of each hole there will be something that looks like a needle, those are the ionizer pins and they will probably have dust built up on them. Next, with the filter out, blow out the air purifier with compressed air to clean all the dust off the ionizer pins. This should take care of the problem, it worked on mine.

Dust on Canon 350D


I have some real experience of finding dusts and even moulds in-between the Low Pass Filter and the CMOS. So no matter how you "clean" the sensor "surface", the things inside are not affected. Very tedious you have to take out the CMOS and open up the Low Pass Filter to clean them. Nothing high-tech!
