Hi Malibu Stevi
To get the best time out of your Projector and your lamp , you should take in your Projector at least twice a year for a service.
If you want to clean out the filters , simply take a vacuum cleaner and vacuum the dust out.
As for the fan , this could be as a result of dust , but I would suggest you have it checked out by a Sony Service Provider as fan malfunction is the biggest cause of lamps blowing.
Also try not to run the Projector for short periods at a time as this simply eats away on your lamp. Rather leave it running for longer periods a Projector's lamp is similar to the lamp's you use in your house - switching on and off all the time makes the lamp's fillament weak - Take my word on this , I've had please using the Projector to watch a odd movie now and then and they only get 500 - 1000 hours on their lamps. And then I've had clients who use their Projectors as TV's and they got 10 000 - 15000 hours on their lamps.
Hope this is of help and thanks for using Fixya !

These instructions are for a Sony Cineza VPL HS3, but may be the same for the HS3.
1st thing to check - is the cover properly/completely closed - this can stop the projector from working.
Connect the power and set the projector to standby mode.
Press these buttons on the remote control in this order, for less than 5 seconds each.
Reset - Left Arrow - Right Arrow - Enter
This is required, to reset the lamp timer.
Also, something I found interesting from the internet - lamp life isn't when the bulb dies, but when a bulb has lost 10% of its brightness - so you might well be able to reset the timer and get much more use from the bulb - the image just wont be as bright.
