When cleaning the Promethean / Sanyo projectors, please make sure the following occurs:

1- Projectors should be turned off and completely cooled down before attempting to remove and clean the filters. The bulbs are extremely hot and if dust rolls off the filter while the fan is running, it will carry the dust into the projector and through to the bulb possibly causing a flash. To this point should the filter be allowed to get excessively clogged between cleanings, the dust can also fall off the filter and into the unit, get picked up by the fan and move through to the bulb possibly causing a flash and smoke.

2- NEVER spray air from a canned air source inside the projector. Wipe the projector with a soft, dry cloth after it has been powered off. Remove the filters from the projector. Then while holding the filter AWAY from the projector, compressed can air with non-flammable propellants may be used to spray the filters if desired. Please keep the canned air away from the projectors at all times.

Attached are the revised instructions.

Just a note to say thank you to you and/or your fellow staff member for making sure all the projector filters for the Promethean / Smart boards are being cleaned on a monthly basis. It is so critical that this maintenance continues.

We have noticed at some schools that even though the filters are being cleaned monthly, a great deal of dust is still accumulating on the filters. This will occur majority of the time if the projector is powered on all day. If the teachers are not using the board, please stress to them to power the projector off, whether it is going to lunch, to the lab, students taking a tests, etc. In addition, projectors should not be used as the clock and should never be left on over night.

Using them when only necessary will also extend the life of the projector bulb and save your school money when the bulbs are no longer under warranty.
