I have one as well. Green one towards the left center. I have been unsuccessful attempting to remove it by blowing compressed air into various vents. It hasnt bothered me enough (or I havent had enough free time) to take it apart yet.
well I guess it had to happen to me since I was praising the z1 so much...Tonight I went to turn the z1 off and saw a few spots. I totally defocussed the pj and the blobs turned into tiny spots. dust.
I think Sanyo needs to learn how to make a quality filter and/or case so dust doesn't get in. sheesh. I never had one blob or anything like that on my ae100 with over 840 hours. I'd say I have about 25 or so hours on the z1.
Thankfully they don't show up during anything but like black. I will still probably try and take this thing apart to clean them.
Mine acts as a vacuum cleaner. At first I had no visible dust blobs. Now I'm at +50 Hrs and have about 10 blobs which of two or three are disturbing with video material. For some reason all are on the blue panel.
With this rate, I won't be seeing any light from the blue panel in a couple of months. Somebody please find a way of removing those nasties without invalidating the warranty..
yooooooooooink. tonight I blasted those damn panels with some comrpessed air and got rid of the two VERY visible green blobs. There seems to still be the faint blue one but it is almost impossible to see at normal viewing distance and "awareness"...I decreased its visbility a little bit but not as much as the green ones...those were the two I focused on the most.
I'm a happy camper and am thankful it went without any issues and was so easy to do so if any future dust blobs wish to creep up, I'll blast their asses.
I spoke with Studio Experience today and asked them about dust blobs. The salesman said that it was covered under their warranty!!! I want to talk to a second person and get this in writing before I purchase it. Anybody else hear about this?
