Does anyone know of the best way to clean the ae300's air filter? The manual shows a picture of what I think is a vaccum cleaner attachment held up to the filter, but I'm worried this might damage the filter. Can anyone with the ae300/200 manual read this section? It seems to be written in some weird foreign language or heiroglyphics or something :D I've only run my pj for about 65 hours, but I thought I read somewhere that you should optimally clean a pj's filters every 100 hours.
Thanks,

Uh-oh. This is what I get for trying to read one forum and post to another at the same time. Unfortunately it's not letting me delete this thread, so could one of the wise-and-just moderators kindly move this thread to the sub 5K forum?

i have an ae100 and take the filer out and clean it with the vaccum. I sort of vaccum it through my fingers while I hold it so the actual filter does not get sucked up into it:)

Works well so far

When I clean the filter on my ae-100 I use one of the best methods around for really getting those filters clean. Just take the filter and run some water over it with a small amount of soap. Then take an old toothbrush and scrub it good on both sides. Make sure you rinse good and press dry with a towl or something. You don't want it to airdry or it will start to degrade over time. This method works good for me.

PC Load Letter...What the **** does that mean!?

Thanks for the great suggestions!
I guess by the nature of your cleaning methods (vaccum, rinse & toothbrush) that these things are more resilient than I thought. I was really scared of tearing or otherwise damaging it since it looks fairly thin and flimsy.

The user manual for NEC LT155 advises against using water or liquid of any kind to clean the filter.
