    try lampz.co.uk for your lamp....

    If you go to jessops or a camera type place, you should be able to get some solvent type solution and lint free tissues to clean the lens...... just clean it as you see fit.

    Air filters..... i removed mine every few months, blew them out then cleaned them (water), let them dry and replaced them.

    Depends on the environment.

    Cleaning
    Recommended every 100 hours, but if you have a dusty / smokey environment, every 20 hours.

    Replacement
    Standard environment, every time the lamp is replaced, dusty / smokey, when you can see the filter is wearing out.

    Lens
    Recommend a non-alcohol based solution. I use Screen Clean and a lint free cloth. The cloth does not leave any spears or dust behind.

    Possibly should have defined my answer as DLP projectors tend not to have air filters installed where as LCD do.

    I believe it is because 3 chip systems, optics, etc are more ceceptipal (Probably the wrong spelling) to dust.
