When and how should I clean or replace the air filter?

    Regular filter maintenance is important to maintaining your projector. Your Epson projector is designed with an easily accessible, user-replaceable filter to protect your projector and make regular maintenance simple. Filter maintenance intervals will depend on the environment.

    If regular maintenance is not performed, your Epson projector will notify you when the temperature inside the projector has reached a high level. Do not wait until this warning appears to maintain your projector filter as prolonged exposure to high temperatures may reduce the life of your projector or lamp.

    Damage due to the failure to properly maintain the projector or its filter may not be covered by the projector or lamp Limited Warranties.

    Cleaning the Air Filter

    You need to clean the projector's air filter in the following situations:
    • The filter or vents get dusty.
    • You see a message telling you to clean it.
    1. Turn off the projector and unplug the power cord.
    2. Press in on the inner edge of the air filter cover to release the latch, then pull to remove.
    3. Pull the air filter out of the projector.
    4. Tap each side of the air filter 4 to 5 times to shake off any excess dust.

      Caution:
      Do not use excessive force when tapping the air filter, or it may crack and become unusable. Do not rinse the air filter in water, or use any detergent or solvent to clean it. Do not use canned air; the gases may leave a residue, or push dust and debris into the projector's optics or other sensitive areas.

    5. Vacuum the front of the air filter (the side with the tabs) to remove any remaining dust.

      Note: If dust is difficult to remove or the air filter is damaged, replace the air filter.

    6. Place the air filter back in the projector as shown.
    7. Close the air filter cover.
