Keep the Light Burning on Your Digital Projector Lamp

A digital projector is a wonderful way to watch television and movies, and its popularity is on the rise. The one complaint that people have about the projector is that the lamp burns out too soon. That is something that can be fixed, though. If users would heed certain advice, they would be able to keep their lamp burning for much longer than the average projector owner.

When you first get your digital projector, invest in a surge protector. If a digital projector is exposed to electrical surges, the lamp is more likely to burn out before it is supposed to. Users can avoid that from happening by simply plugging the projector into a surge protector.

Once you have purchased the surge protector, dust the room you are going to put the projector in. Dust and projectors do not get along. If you keep your projector free of dust, your lamp will also be able to burn longer. Make sure that you dust the room frequently, as dust can creep up in a room. It is important that you stay on top of it for the health of your projector and lamp. If your projector has dust filters, make sure you take them out regularly and clean them too.

You can also adjust the mode in which your projector runs in order to lengthen the life of your bulb. If you use the economy mode on your projector you will be able to get more use out of the bulb before it needs to be replaced. In most cases, you will not even notice a difference in picture when you switch to economy mode ( however if you seek a perfect picture this may not be the best option). This is the easiest way to increase the time between changing bulbs.

Also, be mindful of how often you turn the projector on and off. A lot of stress can be put on a projector and its lamp if it is switched on and off often. As a rule, keep from turning the projector on and off often in order to increase not only the life of the projector lamp, but the life of the actual projector as well.

When your projector is on, you need to keep your eye on it to make sure that the lamp does not overheat. If you allow your lamp to overheat, the chances of it burning out quickly are increased. Instead, make sure that the lamp does not overheat so you can optimize performance and get the most out of the lifespan. Do not block any fans.

A digital projector is a great way to bring theater quality entertainment into your home. By keeping an eye on the lamp and how you use it, you can get more hours of use out of it. If you want to be able to keep your projector low maintenance, follow these tips and you will have a much easier time handling your projector and lamp. Also, you will save money because you will not have to replace the bulbs as often.
