Admittedly until DLP technology that facilitates the development of
projectors without lamps advances lamps will continue to be an important
part of our lives as owners of digital projectors. Those new to projectors
will soon realize that at one point or another in the life of the projector
bulb replacement will be necessary. Projector bulbs are certainly not
cheap. An average projector bulb for replacement can cost you anything
between $250 to $300 in the United States.
Projectors that use lamps rely on a lifespan embedded into the lamp itself.
Each single use of the projector is calculated and deducted on an hourly
basis from the lamp life. Everything being equal most projectors will run
smoothly for up to 2000 hours. This can equate to a year of perfect
non-problematic use of your projector. In most cases however due to failure
to follow instructions on the proper use of the projector lamp life can
even be shortened in half. Typically this is caused by operating the device
in dusty areas or outside allowing insects to invade the inside of the
In some cases lamp replacement will come sooner than later due to
projector’s own malfunction which may lead to the bulb pooping. Most
projectors are designed in a way that is easy for any lay person to
dismantle the lamp module from the projector and replace with a new one. An
important tip about bulb replacement to be shared at this point is that
most people find it convenient and worthwhile to purchase a replacement
bulb at the same time as the purchase of the new projector. This will save
time and scarcity problems that you might encounter if you are to start
looking for your lamp a year later for example. You will have to ensure
lengthy down-time due to shipping time of your replacement bulb.
Most projectors are designed to give you a warning sign when your lamp is
about to reach its life span. Some projectors make a certain sound yet some
display this warning on start-up or switching off on the screen. The
following are a few standard practical steps to apply when replacing your
bulb regardless of which projector brand you are using;
1. First and foremost ensure that your projector is completely cooled down
before attempting to remove the bulb.
2. Your projector must be off and disconnected from the main power supply
when you begin the bulb replacement procedure.
3. In most cases your lamp will be removed using a screw-driver by opening
the bottom of the projector.
4. In most cases the lamp module is just removed as is and replaced with a
new one eliminating any technical know-how or rewiring. Once this is done
replace cover and screw it on and your projector is good to do again.
