Digital projectors are a great addition to any home or office and the
advantages of having one don’t need to be explained here. However the joys
of having the big screen image, hooked up to your surround sound in the
lounge are all too often shattered with the globe, often remaining that way
for several months until you can afford a new one.
Digital projector lamps are a powerful light source used to transport the
image from the projector to the screen. While very strong for their
designed purpose, omitting light, the same cannot be said about their
durability, a point of contention with many a disgruntled digital projector
Although digital projector lamps are rated with an estimated life in hours,
typically a lamp will peter out after 2,000 to 3,000 hours of use, many
fall short of the indicated life. There are number of reasons for this.
Like with all manufactured products there will be faults. While most
projector lamps come with warranties ranging from 30 days to 6 months,
research shows that many projector bulbs blow after the expiration of the
warranty but well before the indicated lamp life. I own a Hitachi LCD
projector and have experienced this problem first hand Not only did my lamp
blow after only 1000 hours use but it also exploded inside the projector.
After learning the hard way myself here are a few tips to avoiding similar
problems, while maximizing the protection of, and hence, life of, your
expensive projector lamp.
Always check and clean your air filter before use, especially if it has
been stored. Dust build up in the air filter pad can cause lamp cooling
problems resulting in overheating, lamp explosion and in some cases fire.
Never move your projector during use. When the lamp is hot it is most
vulnerable. A slight jolt could easily cause the lamp to blow.
Always allow the lamp to fully complete its cooling cycle before turning
your digital projector off.
Ask your dealer to clean the inside of your projector once a year to avoid
excessive dust builds up.
