When projecting I get a lot of lint on the right side of the picture. I can open the case but can't find how to reach the area where the lint resides. I have no manual. Any suggestions on how to clean this?

Hi Roger and welcome!

Try removing the lens by pulling out the focus knob and pulling on the lens. You can then access the gate frame opening. Take a long wooden skewer with a small piece of clean cloth dipped in alcohol and rub it around the edges of the frame opening. You can also us a cotton swab but sometimes the cotton comes off and makes it worse. You can also use canned air to blow out fuzz and dust. You should also go to the lamp side of the frame opening and clean that also. Do all this with no film in the projector.

If you would like a User Manual just PM me.

If my memory is correct,don't forget to check the heat shield glass behind the gate too. Dirt might built up there
possibly causing it to be a big light eater. [Roll Eyes]
