Anyone had to clean an HS50 yet?

    No dust blobs on mine yet, but I'm sure it'll need a clean soon.
    Anyone opened up their HS50 for a blast of compressed air...I'd be interested in the best way to open it up safely.

    That said, I've not read any reports of dust blobs on HS50's yet. Plenty on other similar projectors (i.e. AE700 and Z3 etc)...... so is the HS50 uniquely unaffected? or is it just that nobody has clocked up enough hours yet?

    Hi Jules, I've not seen any reports of dust blobs yet either. So unless you absolutely have to, don't touch it! :)

    My HS50 had a blue dust blob as soon as it was delivered. It's quite large but very faint. It's never in focus on screen though no matter what the focus on the lens, so I think it might be in the light pathway rather than on the panels.
    Anyway, I'll try and get it sorted when it goes back for the 720p overscan update. If it helps, it hasn't collected any more dust since that first one a couple of months ago.
