    Now that I've bought a house to put my cinema in (seriously) I've taken the lenses off my Sony 1271QM in order to clean them and the tubes.

    Undeneath the Power Supply (under the tubes) I've discovered a nasty looking patch of corosion on the metal chassis.

    It is rust coloured in the middle, with patches of green and white.

    Does anyone know what it is and how to treat it? It's not affecting the use of the projector in any way but it will only worsen methinks.

    P.S. It's a great shame because apart from that the projector is in superb condition - no dirt apart from dust and no tube wear :)

    Have a look a the cooling fluid levels in the glass in the front of the CRT. (bright torch or lens off) this is the sort of damage you get if one of these starts leaking.

    The fuild is very corrosive and will rot just about any thing.
