* Take the projector to a work room. This will get messy
* There are four very small Phillips screws on the bottom of the projector. Remove those
* There is one very small Phillips screw on the right hand side of the projector if you are looking at the projector from the front. Remove it
* Now flip the projector so it is right side up
* Remove the top piece of plastic. The bottom does not come off. Be careful. There is a ribbon attached to the top, so lean it against something while disassembled
* Use compressed air can and blow the dust out of the unit
* Take the lamp out and clean the glass lens
* Reassemble the projector
Great Advice! Saved me big bucks on new lamp!!!!
Easy to follow instructions. I wished I took pictures. Thanks for the advice!
This is great advice, I was on my second projector, the first one I sent back for this problem, the same problem started with the second projector. My warranty was up, so I was about to send out to be fixed.
I followed these instructions and now the projector is working great again, and has been for over a month. All I can say is thank-you, you saved me a lot of time and money. Dell should post this some where.
