    My manual Stewart greyhawk screen is now 3 - 4 years old and has never been cleaned. :eek: It appears to have ingrained dust and tiny insects that have been squashed within the roller mechanism.

    Also the tab tension needs tightening on the bottom 1/4 of both sides... There are a couple of lumps ands ripples which can be made to disappear by pulling slightly on the cables to add tension. Obviously I need to take up the slack somehow.

    So, how do I safely clean the surface of the screen without spoilng the optical coating, and how can I adjust the tab tension?

    Thanks

    I think you should contact Stewart before trying any suggestions people may have. I ruined the material on my Da-Lite screen by cleaning it without following the instructions and it ended up costing me big time!
