When should I replace the projection lamp?
It's time to replace the lamp when:
- The projected image gets darker or starts to deteriorate.
- The projector's lamp light flashes orange at half-second intervals.
- The message Replace the lamp appears on the screen when you start projecting.
Note: Lamp life results will vary depending on mode selected, environmental conditions, and usage.
Warning: Let the lamp cool fully (about 1 hour) before replacing it. In the unlikely event that the lamp has broken, small glass fragments may be present and should be removed carefully to avoid injury.
Caution: Never touch the glass portion of the lamp with your bare hands; the invisible residue left by the oil on your hands may shorten the lamp life. Use a cloth or glove to handle the new lamp.
