Partially cured resin on FEP

Guest 2021-5-28 508

Recently I've been having the following problem shown below where I print a number of parts successfully - and they turn out great, but there is a thin layer of partially cured resin on the FEP of my Vat. I have an Anycubic Photon Mono X.  When I first started using the printer about 3 months ago I had the problem but it seems to go away after a while, and I could run successive print jobs without cleaning the vat.  Now the problem is back. I've read about others having this issue and have check a number of things. First, I did a calibration test to see the condition of my LCD. It seems fine and don't see any burn-out or irregularities. Next, I check my build plate home/zero position - and re-ran a job, but that didn't help.  

I suspect and fear that the problem could be due to the fact that I recently had to replaced the polarizing filter on my LCD. I did adjust/install it correctly by angling it properly to block the most amount of UV light and observing that before I cut it and mounted it. It doesn't have adhesive but is mounted with the surround electrical tape.  I think the problem might be that the filter I purchase is not as effective at blocking light as the factory-installed filter that comes with the 4K LCD panel from Chitubox?

Any other potential causes that you can think of?

    We are not sure where the problem is, would you mind posting a picture here of your polarizing filter on your LCD?

    I made an official Chitubox + PHOTON ZERO thread... following wit as it's updated.
