While taking my Panamorph UH-380 a-lens off to put lock washers up to fix the "droop" issue I posted in another thread, noticed some dust appears to be on the internals of my Sony VPL-VW60.
Hard to see in these picts but I can see it on the lenses.
My bulb has 950 hours, I've never opened up the PJ besides cleaning the air filter.
I've been pretty anal about covering the whole PJ with bath towels when doing any of my work in the HT and then vacuuming the dust prior to towel removal.
I don't notice it on screen, but now that I've seen it I'd like to clean it.
Or, should I follow the sages advice "if it ain't broke don't fix it" for this?
There also seems to be some dust in my UH-380 a-lens, I've read threads about others taking their a-lens apart and cleaning it.
I've read "don't use computer compressed air, it squirts blobs of moisture, use C02 air instead".
Did a search before posting but could not find any posts.
Any advice on a DIY cleaning is appreciated, thx avs guys (and gals).
I called my dealer on the way home today, he was going to check with Sony, I told him paying $$$ for service cleaning is out of the question, so I'm looking for real world owner cleaning method/process from Sony (via him).
I don't put the manual lens cover ever on, frankly it's a pia to do so, I see the newer Sony pj's have an auto lens cover, so I wonder if Sony acknowledged this as an issue and upgraded their newer line-up as a countermeasure.
