Hi,

Just received my DV88 dvd player which is in superb cosmetic and working condition. however it is looking a little dusty from what I can see inside so before I use it any more I would like to remove the outer lid and give it a good clean inside by using a can of compressed air (like for cleaning inside computers) and also thinking of buying a dvd lens cleaner and giving the laser a good clean too as I know these players are 3-4 years old and all my other equipment is brand new.

Would it be safe to do all this without risk to the dvd player from static etc and is it a simple enough job to do or would I need a specialist tool to remove the casing.

Thanks for any advice!

A further note on laser lens cleaning. Buy a wet dry system and one someone can recommend like the Milty one for instance. Bad cleaners can scratch the lens. Also many try to get at the laser themselves with a cotton bud/alcohol and simply 'clean' the laser out of calibration.
