Selected FAQ

Q:
How long should the projection lamp last in normal operation?
A:
The lamp should last approximately 3000 to 4000 hours, depending on usage.

To prolong the life of the lamp, you can do the following:
  • Turn on the projector’s Sleep Mode setting. See Customizing Power and Operation.


  • Turn off the projector when not in use.


  • Make sure the projector is operated within the environmental requirement of 41 to 95°F (5 to 35°C).


  • Set the projector’s Brightness Control setting to Low. See Customizing Projector Features.


  • Clean the filter if dust collects on the filter (on the bottom of the projector) or exhaust vent (on the front of the projector).


  • When you replace the lamp, make sure you don’t touch the lamp with your bare hands. The invisible residue left by the oils on your hands may shorten the lamp life. Use a cloth or a glove to handle the lamp.
