    Hi, All

    Just a quicky, i have a Panasonic PTAE300 and was wanting to know the answer to a couple of quick questions.

    1. As an average how long does the lamp last?
    2. Should i be performing any sort of maintenance on my projector? (ie cleaning etc)

    Many thanks in advance
    Mark

    Specs say Lamp life 2000 hours (thats probably in high lamp mode tho).

    You should clean the air filter to stop overheating (from dust build up) but be careful not to let dust flow into the projector giving you an evil dust blob!

    This should be mentioned in the manual.

    You could also get some lens cleaning papers from your local photgraphy shop and give the lens a clean if it gets a finger print on it.

    When powering down the projector the fan cools the bulb for 30 seconds or so, DO not switch the mains off while its doing this (infact avoid touching the mains switch)

    When you turn it off, avoid turning it straight back on.

    Thats all i can think of
