How to change a DLP Lamp

Warning: The bulb and housing can get extremely hot, allow the bulb to cool before changing it.

The steps to change a lamp are:

  1. Never touch the bulb with your fingers. Find a soft lint free cloth like a clean cotton shirt and use it when handling the bulb and housing. The oils on your fingers can cause issues resulting in shortened lamp life or poor performance.
  2. Unplug the machine either from the wall or back of the machine.
  3. Remove the cover and unscrew the bulb housing.
  4. Using the cloth from step one remove the old lamp.
  5. Pay attention to the wire connecting with the lamp. Be sure to remove this carefully so as not to damage the wire or connector.
  6. Connect the wire to the new lamp. Be careful not to touch the lamp with your fingers.
  7. Using the previously mentioned cloth, do not touch the bulb with your fingers, insert the new lamp.
  8. Replace the bulb housing unit and reinstall the cover.
  9. Plug in the electrical cord for the projector or TV.
  10. Be sure to reset the lamp hour counter or timer. Steps to do this are projector or TV specific therefore we have written specific articles for this. See articles in the left navigation bar to learn how.

The above are general steps, if available, we recommend consulting your user manual for exact instructions.
