I would suggest you to turn the power button on the monitor off when then computer is not in use as you do not need display if you are not working.
Electrical equipment has a life on all of its electronic components inside which will decrease the life if its left on for 24hrs. Monitors of these days comes with sleep facilty which disables the monitors motherboard but the power supply has a constant current which is again an electronic device.
Final answer to you qustion would be to keep the monitor turned off when not in use.

Lense hours


Hello muhammad
Projector's lamp life is said to be, not with the lens life. Lens is made up of glass. But lamp will go weak. the life of lame will depend on how much time the projectior have used. Normal life of Panasonic projector bulb spans between [1800 to 2000] continous use. It means, if we take the low life span of the bulb as 1800 Hours [1800/24=75 Continous days]. If we use it for 4 hours a day, the bulb may last for [1800/4=450 days ie 1 Year and 85 days] OK.

I want to find out the life expectancy of the bulb (lamp) that comes with the Optoma projector model VDDVGG


We tracked it when we first bought ours. The lamps go anywhere from 800 to 1200 hours. First, I don't think the manufacturing process is very consistent so they very a lot. Also, it seems the more you turn them on/off the shorter the life. If you use for longer periods, then they last more hours.

You might be able to get 2000 hours out of one if you just leave it on without turning it off but that is a waste too.

All the words on the screen suddenly became distorted and unable to read, kind of the same appearance if someone were to press hard on a screen of this kind how it leaves a wierd color impression. Also...


sounds like a videocard problem, thermal issue with the GPU, and yes running it 24/7 will decrease the lifespan of the monitor.
However getting 3 years life from a samsung CRT is a pretty good effort considering how often their picture tubes fail.

Disreguard the product recommendation. You posted your question in the hardware recommendation section which is for upgrades and such.

For a lap top you can unplug the batteries and power cord. Then press and hold the power button. This is called a power-drain.

Then I would remove the hard drive and make sure there are no bent pins (if older IDE type). Then I replug the hard drive
and replace the batteries and power plug.

Reboot the laptop and enter bios. See if the hard drive is detected. I

F still nothing, try another hard drive in the lap top

or

try that hard drive in another machine/hard drive enclusure to see if it works.

If the harddrive checks out then maybe the laptop hard drive connection is damaged.
That would be verifed with another hard drive.

Hope this helps.

Get a new battery. The life span of a laptop battery is typically only 1-2 years. Check to see if it's still under warranty.
