How long should the projection lamp last in normal operation?
The life span of the projection lamp is about 4,000 hours if Power Consumption
in the Settings menu is Normal
(default), and 5,000 hours if this setting is ECO
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 Power Consumption setting to ECO. See Customizing Projector Features.
- Clean the air filter if dust collects on the filter or vent. See Cleaning the Air Filter.
- 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.
- Press the A/V Mute button on the remote control or close the A/V Mute slide on the projector when you don't need to display the image.
