No, it definitely ISN'T a good idea. I asked because the chamber "sealed", but in reality, there are seams and cracks that dust can penetrate. What happens a lot however, is someone will take canned...

That's good. I could not find any guides to help you. I gotta ask though, have you used canned air on your projector, specifically, in the lamp chamber? Because where the dust blob is most likely to...

First, if you have ANYTHING on the screen, the lamp is fine. It's ONLY function is to provide light and it's doing that, so don't waste your time or money on a new one.

The Lamp Cover does NOT sense the lamp, it is the switch that the lamp COVER or DOOR engages when in place.

The projector will not run without the lamp. It will try, but shut down when it fails to ignite the lamp that isn't there.

Okay, I'll take a stab. 3 possibilities

1. The replacement lamp you got was not really OEM.
2. The OEM lamp was defective
3. The generic lamp you saved money on damaged the ballast.

Replace the lamp. That's normal. Projectors fire the lamp at a HIGH voltage and then settle down to a lower running voltage. And lamps dim as they age. By the time the lamp reaches EOL, it have lost...
