First off, DOH!!! Guess I should have looked a little closer at the forum list. On Saturday I posted a question in the LCD/DLP/DILA projector forum asking the best way to clean a blemished screen. Now I see that there is a forum specific to screens, so I'll ask here.
On Friday I purchased a clearance SharpVision XS-84SPGR glass-beaded screen from a local dealer. It was their last of line and as such was no refund, no exchange. I did look at the finish in the store but was unable to view it with a projected image.
After getting it home and installed, I fired up the projector (an InFocus LP335) and was upset to find a fairly noticeable mark, especially in bright scenes. Looking at the screen closely it looks like some sort of oily smudge, but I'm not really sure.
What do you experts suggest that I use to try cleaning? It was suggested in the other forum that I try warm water and mild soap, and to test in a corner of the screen first. I've also sent an email to Sharp for their suggestions, but haven't heard back yet.
Any suggestions would be appreciated, including ways of refinishing the screen if necessary. Are there paints that will not crack when the screen is rolled back, or am I plain out of luck on this one? Thanks in advance....
