Is it that time already? You’ve enjoyed dozens of movies and hour after hour of television shows, but its time to replace your projector lamp! Do you know how to change a projector lamp? If this was your first projector, you may be asking yourself, How do i change a projector lamp? And what does this lamp even look like?
Well, if its the standard manufacturer lamp that is recommended for your projector, it should come ready to install from either the manufacturer, or a company selling the original manufacturer models (like Visual Apex!). Models can vary by projector model and manufacturer, but it should look something like one of these –
If you find a deal that looks too good to be true on the price, it might be. There are “model equivalent” lamps out there that will save you a lot, but they are not recommended by the manfacturers. And i’ve seen some that need to be assembled when you get them! …maybe its just me, but that sounds like more work then i want to put in to this. When movie night is on the line, i want to know that i can quickly change the projector lamp and get back to the action!
But seriously, how do you change a projector lamp? Not having done it much myself yet, i rely on help from those who have, and this handy video!
Yes, you are in luck! We at Visual Apex a couple years ago, created a step by step video guide to help you with this process … you can find it on you tube, but here is the link on our lamps page – http://www.visualapex.com/accessories/projector-lamps.asp
Happy lamp changing! and remember that its always a good idea to have a spare on hand you dont want to be in the middle of the big game and have the lamp go out – that doesnt make for a good party, and you may not live down the teasing later either… trust me, our friends definately wouldnt let us forget it
So find your lamp today and get a spare and when it arrives, give the video a look and you should then know how to change a projector lamp.
See you next time! -M
