Does anyone know where I can find one? I won't be using my projector on a regular basis and wanted to prolong the life of the projector and maintenance with the filter and avoid dust blobs on my 8350. Is there a dust cover that I purchase for my projector that has a slit for where the ceiling mount is?

I also need to sand some drywall patches when the wires for fished through so this is also why it's important for me.


thanks!

#1- you can cover the projector with a glad bag while you sand the drywall.

#2 Clean the filter every 30 or so hours and you should never have a dust blob problem. Depending on the projector If you can place an auto air filter over the air intake it will be even better. You can put the filter on with Velcro. You can get the filters at your local wally mart in the auto section. There are many sizes to choose from. - Bohanna

i have an epson 8350... not sure how i would use an auto air filter intake filter. cosmetically it would look odd and doesnt the projector have a filter on it itself that i can just clean?

also, does anyone put a lens cover on their projectors? i'm not doing this as it will change the zoom/focus whenever i take it on/off.

Forgive my ignorance but wont the projector overheat with a dust cover?
Just curious as I am considering an Epson 5030.

How about lens covers?

The dust cover is for when not in use.
