    Just got a green dust blob on my one week old PT-AE300E. Size of a tennis ball if I turn the focus ring it looks like a golf ball. You can only see it on dark pics. Should I open it and give it a spray. Dont realy want to send it back not even watched a hole dvd yet.

    Yep I have a couple on my ae500. Not letting it bother me anyone else watching would not notice to be honest. It will have to get alot worse before I risk trying to clean it. Worried about damaging the optics with liquid propellant.
