My dad gave me his Bell Howell Projector 471-a and I just cleaned it up and changed the belt on it, but now I have another issue that needs to be cleaned up which is the lens.

It is a 18mm-30mm f/1.6 and its hazy which I know nothing about projectors and lens so I don't know if this can be cleaned or fixed, the haze looks like it is coming from inside the lens so I don't know if it can be disassembled or not, well any guidance would be appreciated.

Henry, just clean your lens with windex. And lens tissue! Than buffit it. The lens will look a lot better! A good clean lens gives you a better picture! Windex window cleaner works wonders!Try it! Leon.
