Thanks very much for the reply. This morning I did just as you had suggested, but used teflon grease which I assume would be less likely to run (got it at RadioShack, of all places..). It worked perfectly, and the noise completely stopped. I guess this is part of normal maintenance. It would have been nice if the manufacturer mentioned this in their literature.
BTW,you were quite correct,it was dusty in there!
One other question re the limited use of the screen (your kind of frequency of use is what I should be doing :-)!..)
I noticed whenever the screen comes down, it "sticks" a bit as it unravels, and (perhaps as a consequence) there is a dark streak of about 4 inches in length by 1/32" wide, at about the halfway point of the white screen surface; it is either some type of black material from the BACK of the screen roll, or (I hope not) some of the white material has actually come off. It is hard to tell which it is, by looking at it. I wonder if this is a common problem or not.
