Might be too late for the advice, lsiberian, as he's already performed the deed.
Waiting for him to get back to me on whether he's considering it a victory or not.

Thanks to you fellas for the support.

Bob

Re: Optoma EP721 - Flickering colors - DIY Repairable?

Well, looks like things turned out just fine.
Here's his latest:

==================

The projector worked with no problems for a little over 5 hours before I shut it off to make dinner. The only problem I have now is when I sprayed the dust on the insides, I got some of it on the mirror. So I am gonna need to open it back up and try to spray that off. You don't notice the dust on anything but a black screen, and even then it's not too bad, but I noticed it, and that was enough for me.

==================

I guess that's what lsiberian was referring to about staying away from the optics.

"Whoops"

Thanks again guys,
Bob

Just make sure you don't wipe the grease off the stuff in there. You only need to spray at the mirror and you will see the little dust spots clearly on it.

Re: Optoma EP721 - Flickering colors - DIY Repairable?

This post is a life saver! I had this same issue with a BENQ W600, found the sensor had a small "pile" of dust sitting right next to it, once cleaned the flickering colors are gone!

I had actually ordered 2 replacement bulbs, but I guess there's no harm in having them around

Thanks,
