How to maximize projector lamp life

2018-06-15

1. Avoid bulb overheating

When the projector is working, the lamp has very high brightness and the temperature is very high. Therefore, the maximum service life and performance of the lamp cannot be guaranteed because external factors may adversely affect the service life of the projector and the lamp. However, high temperature is the most direct cause of projector lamp life. To increase the lamp life, avoid high temperature burning of the imaging accessories inside the projector. Some projectors are equipped with a thermostat and turn off the lights automatically when the peak allowable temperature is reached, while others require manual shut down. Do not disconnect the power cord to cut off the power! It affects the cooling time required, so wait until it is unplugged.


2. Keep the projector filter clean

The filter prevents dust and other dirt from damaging the operating environment. Therefore, it is very important to clean the filter on a regular basis, especially when the projector is used in a dust-prone environment. This will extend the life of the lamp.

3. Operate the projector in "economy mode"

All projectors have a built-in "economy mode" that saves lamp life by reducing brightness. It projects the image with best brightness instead of maximum brightness. An illustration may be helpful: if the lamp works at 2000 lumens and the lifetime is 1500 hours, it can be run at 1800 lumens, which can be increased to 1700 hours by operating in economical mode. Reduce lumens and increase the life expectancy of your bulb.


4. Do not move or shake the projector

We strongly recommend that you do not move the projector when it is turned on or off. This can damage the electrode or filament and may even cause the lamp to burst.


5. Your projector needs to put air in the room

Heat dissipation is one of the most important factors that affect the life of a lamp. Therefore, the projector must be placed in a place where there is sufficient air circulation, and there is considerable space for heat dissipation. It is helpful to keep the projector away from the wall. Avoid direct exposure to the sun, and try to cool as much as possible by artificial cooling or air conditioning.


6. Install the projector lamp

Broken projector lamps need to be replaced with new OEMs or alternatives. Be careful when replacing the lamp. Do not complete it without consulting the user's manual. Replacement can be done as a bare bulb or a bulb with a housing. Light bulbs are usually very fragile and can burst if handled improperly; one of the key steps is to avoid “skin contact” with the bulb so that it must be worn when handling. Installing a light bulb with a housing is a good suggestion because it always fits the projector in the best way. For more information, read How to replace the projector lamp.


7. Climate conditions

Your projector needs to be in a climate controlled atmosphere. It should be essentially free of dust and suspended dirt. If the projector is turned on immediately afterwards, extremely high temperatures in the car may cause danger. The lamp may burst due to extreme temperatures. Force the projector to stay in a cool place for a while to allow it to reach room temperature and work efficiently.


9. General

In general, the projector lamp is expected to function properly. It may happen that some of the lamps do not reach the projector's specified operating hours. The lamp is a consumable item. Even if it is used and maintained properly, the lamp will fail faster than indicated.
