Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

Purchased this projector 10 years ago for business purposes. The lamp just gave out. Ny research shows it now costs $400-$750 for a replacement. 1. Are these machines worth keeping? 2. Is the technology so improved that I should just bag it and buy a newer model to work with our laptops for presentations? 3. Is it fully compatible with current labtops and worth keeping for both in office and at work site presentations?

The machine is 10 years old and it is at the point it has served the purpose, technology has advanced to the point that compatibility would be an issue. The cost of repair would not justify the expense.

What is the dmd?


Hello Anonymous,

A DMD is a chip with thousands of tiny mirrors that change angles in order to block or let light through, creating the image you are viewing. Texas Instruments has a great video and explanation here: DLP MEMS

The spots could definitely be caused by a malfunctioning DMD. As much as we would like your business, you will be better off purchasing a new projector. You can try searching ebay for a used working version of the projector so you can utilize the hours on that new lamp (there is currently one for sale for $125 on ebay). If you want to get a new projector, I recommend a website called Projector Central (Projectors Projector Reviews LCD Projectors Home Theater DLP Projectors...) for research on finding the right match for your needs.

In the future, if you have any repair or lamp needs, Mentronix repairs and stocks lamps for over 30 brands of projectors.

It is just very dim. The bulb has 500 hours - is it just a bulb?


Hi,
This projector had a lamp rated at 2000 hours (normal) / 3000 hours (eco mode). It last shipped in August 2008. It is a 3000 lumen projector. It's a reasonable business class projector.
As a first step, it's certainly worth checking your warranty status. Your projector will certainly be approaching the end of its warranty now, however this model was shipped with a 3 year warranty so it may still be covered if the fault is not the lamp. Check now, and log the (possible) fault with your local Hitachi service dept. eg http://hitachiserviceeu.com/support/contacts/contacts.htm
Essentially it is hard to say. You might find that replacing the lamp makes the projector considerably brighter. A new lamp in an old projector does not return the image to a showroom state though due to degradation in the LCD panels, and dirt etc.

If the projector is not displaying any sign of other fault (ie. it will run happily for a decent length of time, and there are no warning LEDs) it might be worth considering replacing the lamp. A new lamp will cost cost around £250 or $250. If you are going to replace the lamp before sending it for "repair" make sure you fit a genuine Hitachi lamp as non genuine lamps can lead to warranty problems.

Hello, im looking at buying a second hand projector, how do i find out the life of the lamp? can i look in the menu? if its on it last legs, and only got a few mouths of use left in it, are there still...


you can view lamp hours in the menu. Keep in mind, however, that there is also a reset for the lamp hours, so there is no way to know if the reading is accurate or not.

lamps can be purchased at:

As you can see, new lamp is probably way more costly than what you are paying for the projector. Why not just purchase a newer, better projector for same price as replacement lamp?

Newer lamp not workering


I don't think that resetting the lamp is the problem if you have had it in there for a few months already. This lamp is rated for 2000 hours. That is abaout 1 year if you use it about 5 or 6 hours a day. If you don't use it that much you should get close to 2 years. There are a variety of factors that will reduce the life of your lamp. Do you let the fan continue to run after the projector is turned off? If not, you will see about half of the regular life. Are the filters clean? You can use a vacuum or rinse out foam filters to clean out the dirt and dust. The lamp needs good air circulation to cool evenly. Are the vents blocked or close to another componant? I'm pretty sure that you just need another lamp. If the lamp was purchased more then 4 months ago, you are probably out of warranty. You can save yourself some money if you buy the bare bulb and replace it in the old cartridge. It looks like the complete lamp module from Sharp runs around 295.00 but the usually have a bare bulb available. We supply a variety of brands fior each projector. You can contact me at 866-470-9877 or go to allprojectorlamps.com. Good luck!

Projector Lamp


Hi there

Does your Projector go in for regular services ?

Have a technician check out the fans of this unit as well.

I would suggest you hook up a UPS to this Projector , because eventhough you might not have power dips or failures - the power supplied to appliances is not spike free and Projectors struggle to handle this well.
