Question about Panasonic PT-D5600U DLP Projector
I'd like to know the total expected life in hours of a Panasonic DLP Projector (such as a PT-5500U). I know the lamps need replacing at 1500 hours (or 3000 hours for long life lamps) but I'm told that after a certain amount of hours, these projectors start to have problems, like color being off, that cannot be really be affordably fixed.
The projector lifetime has a lot to do with maintenance and environment. Over time, the LCD panels will start to deteriorate. I worked for a rental company where these units were in constant use. After 5 years, they were still going strong. Realize though, that these were highly maintained: constant cleaning via compressed nitrogen to remove dust, lens cleaning and filter changing on a regular basis. Checking for proper fan function and complete disassembly and checking for connections etc.
A word of caution: DO NOT work with the LCD block unless you have access to a clean area and have training. The tolerances here are very small. Slight changes can severely alter the picture quality and all adjustments should be left to a professional.
Hope this helps,
