LCD projectors play a crucial role in presentations. This is because they
give us very good image quality and high resolution. This benefits that
businesses gain from this is enormous. At the same time, if the projector
suddenly fails, right when you need to make a presentation to potential
clients, you could lose money, the business and, even worse, your job.
Over 90% of projector malfunction is because the projector bulb has burnt
out. This is not that serious a problem because projector lamps are easily
purchased and replaced. Even a person with no technical know how could
replace a projector lamp. That is the simple part. The hard part is to
select a bulb from the wide range of choices available in the market and it
could easily leave a person overwhelmed.
First of all you need to check if the type of lamp you purchase works with
your projector. All projector lamps do not work with all the projectors, so
this should be your very first criteria. Choose a high-quality LCD
projector lamp as it has a life span of over 3900 hours. You also need to
know that these measurements are not reliable because lamps do work, much
beyond their appointed life span but get progressively dimmer. Check the
user guide of the lamp, which mentions the “optimum lamp life” listed by
the manufacturer which will give you a fair idea of the life span.
The price tag should not be your very first concern while choosing the
lamp. Halogen lamps may be affordable, but they give you very little return
for your money since they last hardly 65 hours or so. Metal halide lamps
work longer, say 500 hours. So you can understand, the more expensive your
LCD projector lamp is, the longer it will work for you.
Basically two types of projector lamps are used in LCD projectors, metal
halide and tungsten halogen. Let us understand them a bit better. Metal
halide lamps are more efficient because they give better white light at
lower consumption of power until the very end of their life. Tungsten
halogen lamps give whiter light, thanks to the higher temperature it runs
at, and even though the white light slowly turns yellow, it has a longer
At the end of the day, your personal preferences play a large part in the
kind of lamp you choose for your projector and the kind of usage you want
to get out of it. You can use a lot of simple steps to prolong the life of
your projector bulb, and help your bulb last longer when you operate them
in “economy” mode. You could also allow your projector to cool down before
you switch off the power source, keep the projector at room temperature and
also get the air vents cleaned regularly.
If you want to save money, use these simple maintenance tips rather than
economize on the kind of projector lamp you get for your LCD projector.
Better quality will always serve you better.
