Colors not vivid? Image looking “flat”? Are your whites gray/blue? If so, it might be time to update your projector’s lamp (bulb). Many projectors offer lamp life estimates of 2000 hours or more. Our experience is that after 1000 hours (8 hours a week for 2.5 years) that the picture quality of your LCD or DLP projector will degrade to the point that it doesn’t look as good as it once did. If you feel like images don’t quite “pop” like they used to, or that colors aren’t as accurate, it might not be your imagination.
Projector lamps don’t typically burn out like a lightbulb. They just fade away gradually. If you feel like your machine needs a little freshening up, give us a call at 800-747-7301. Prices range from $249-549 for most projectors. Lamps are available for most models (even older units) from virtually any manufacturer, and for models not listed on this website.
