    There is evidence on the AVS forum that Mitsubishi has issued a firmware update, version 4 to overcome the dust problems on the LCD panels. Projektortuning.de refer to a Mitsubishi Press release issued on 17-04-2007 describing the firmware update as a "Dust Protection System".
    It would seem that the exhaust fan is intelligently programmed to increase for a few seconds at a time to eliminate dust particles.
    Mitsubishi UK are not aware of this and have offered to investigate and ring me back. It will be one week tomorrow and I haven't heard anything yet.

    And the big question which remains to be seen: does it really work?

    Dust free HC5000 with Cine4home mods would be a pretty sweet package.

    I agreewith you, it would be a sweet package and Projektor tuning is offering to install the firmware for customers who who purchase the 'Ultra' modifications from them.

    Is anyone on the forum considering having the mods done?

    All HC5000's shipped since March have had version 4 of the firmware. Mitsubishi UK hope to make an update available for older machines shortly.

    Thanks for that reply IVOJO. At last some solid information.
    My HC5000 was bought in February and is firmware version 2.
