I have an Optoma EzPro 737 DLP projector that accumulated dust inside the lens and for ages I couldn't figure out how to get rid of it. It cast shadows onto the picture and scattered light outside the edges of the picture. I thought I'd have to dismantle the whole lens assembly (then realised that this is virtually impossible without being an expert). I then stumbled upon a little black rubbery plastic panel on the side of the light path, which unclips. I then realised that the dust had built up on the lens that sits in front of the DMD chip (the thing that makes the picture).

Here's what I did, with the case open and having vaccuumed out all the dusty parts of the projector to avoid making the situation worse:
- Took off the little rubbery panel,
- Removed the lamp from the projector and placed a flashlight inside, shining into the light path (or a mirror directing light from a table lamp above)
- Looking directly into the lens from close up, you should be able to see the particles of dust stuck to the inner lens (with a nice magnified view)
- First tried blowing air into the gap on the side of the light path (I used a balloon pump).
- Next, I poked a piece of thick nylon fishing line into the hole so that it could touch the surface of the inner lens.
- While looking into the lens, I could see the tip of the nylon, then directed it to the largest dust particles and used it to scrape them off (nylon is much softer than glass, so won't scratch the lens).
- This was quite time consuming but I got rid of the most obvious bits.

I'm not sure how different this would be for another model of projector - but I hope it helps!

How do I clean the inside of the lens on my wonderwall 1625073 projector

It is recommended only cleaning the outside of most projector lenses. However if obstructions have worked their way into the case and will not leave the lens, you may be able to remove the bulb (carefully, following the manuals instructions for bulb replacement)
And gently spray inside towards the lens where the bulb was. However, keep in mind the display itself sits between the bulb and the lenses,
Some projectors have air fins along the sides of the lens, some air in these fins can also loosen debris away from the lens.
Ensure the front of the lens is not dirty and that the focus has been properly adjusted before cleaning the back of the lens.

There is dust inside the lens. how do I clean the dust from inside the lens?

Your projector needs little maintenance. The only thing you need to do on a regular basis is

to keep the lens clean.

Never remove any parts of the projector except the lamp. Contact your dealer if other parts

need replacing.

Cleaning the lens

Clean the lens whenever you notice dirt or dust on the surface.

• Use a canister of compressed air to remove dust.

• If there is dirt or smears, use lens-cleaning paper or moisten a soft cloth with lens cleaner

and gently wipe the lens surface.

Never rub the lens with abrasive materials.

Hi there my benq dlp projector is showing white spots on the screen when the screen is black can you help me?

This is caused by dust on the lens assembly. If you can remove the lens, clean the surfaces with a lens cloth. That should resolve the problem. It is possible that the there is dust in the optical pathway inside the unit as well. If the cleaning of the lens does not resolve the problem, the unit should be brought in for a professional cleaning. It is not suggested that anyone open up these units as there are fine adjustments that can be changed internally easily that could result in convergence problems.

Flickering dots on Benq PB6200 projector.

it's not the lamp. if you've replaced the cords and still have the problem, reset the settings to factory default to make sure the resolution matches. if still not ok, there may be an issue with the main board.

Cleaning dust and dirt from the lens (inside)

Hi Nutty Prof

You will have to open up the unit by unscrewing the screws at the bottom and taking off the top cover of your PB6100.

Right behind the lens is the Lightengine ( where the dust collects )

Take off the cover of the Lightengine by unscrewing the two screws at the top of it . Then blow out the inside of the light engine with Air in a can ( available from most good PC shops )
and then reassemble.

If the dust particles still show after this ( which I doubt it will ) then you will have to take it to a Service Centre to get cleaned out as you will not be able to reassemble the lens once taken apart - it is a HUGE job !

Thanks for using Fixya and Good Luck !
