Do I have to take them first out of the projector? What about damage in the anti-reflective coating? What about the color correction filters? If I put them out will the projector need a new setup?

kos, if only the fronts of the lenses need cleaning, use a camera blower brush to remove all the dust first. Then , wet some tissue paper with distilled water and gently dab the lenses with the wet tissue, wipe off the water with a dry piece of tissue paper using a very gentle circular motion until all moisture, smudges, finger prints are removed.

Avoid using any chemical impregnated cloths or spray on fluids.

There are also special LENS PENS available. They have a soft dusting brush on one end and a special cleaning pad on the other. These are great for removing finger prints etc. and are safe for coatings.


Cheers.

We use lens cleaner whipes and tissue paper to clean lenses. And jus blow the dust and lint left from the tissue paper off when done cleaning.

My earlier suggestion, "Or ask at the unofficial Sony site, www.agoraquest.com " was responded to as "Did not find anything enlightning on this site."


Maybe I did not look through the site enough to see that there were absolutely no members, whose posts you would see, or non-members, whom you cannot identify, who would not know...okay, so there is nothing enlightening.


That's why I suggested asking. Until someone asks on any forum, we have no clue how much collected knowledge there is out there.


Another approach would be to ask a perhaps approachable manufacturer, one not as huge and impregnable as Sony, to see what they recommend for cleaning lenses. Vidikron. Runco. Sharp, even JVC. William Phelps has a solution that he has come up with, and I will email him and ask what it is. I'll be back to you later with his answer.

On page 5 of the Operating Instructions it states:


Avoid touching the lens. To remove dust on the lens, use a soft dry cloth. Do not use a damp cloth, detergent solution, or thinner.


I have no recommendations, just thought I'd pass this along.

I clean the front of the lenses with a special cloth I buy from a camera shop. But I wonder if I must unscrew the lenses and clean them in the back side. Is this necessary or can I damage the projector?
