Also removing the lens assembly wont have any imaging problems when put back together right ? Because if it requires a software based tuning or something later then id have to send it in to the optoma guys later on.
Thanks n Regards
Lol, for the last time, there is no cable!
Its a slot connection, like a graphics card as you mention, but with the contacts facing up. You just need to make sure the main board is held down firmly, by making sure all screws are in tightly. Since its a slot connection with the main board fitting into place on top of the slotted dmd board, it is the main board you want to make sure is secured for a good connection.
And assuming he knows what he's doing, he should be fine cleaning out the lens assembly, i just recommend against it if it isn't affecting anything. But if it truly is growing, then you probably should get it taken care of. Just make sure he uses a cleaner for the lens that does not eat away any coatings that may exist on them. Though if he is experienced with projectors he should already be aware of this.
