Maintaining and Transporting the Projector 67
Replacing the Lamp
The projection lamp typically lasts for about 2000 hours of use
(in High brightness mode) or 3000 hours (in Low brightness mode).
It is time to replace the lamp when:
■ The projected image gets darker or starts to deteriorate.
■ The warning light is flashing red at 0.5-second intervals.
■ The message Lamp Replace appears on the screen when the
lamp comes on. To maintain projector brightness and image
quality, replace the lamp as soon as possible.
Contact your dealer or call EPSON at (800) 873-7766 in the United
States for a replacement lamp. Request part number
In Canada, please call (800) 463-7766 to locate a dealer.
Follow these steps to replace the lamp:
1. Turn off the projector.
2. When the power light stops flashing and remains orange, unplug
the power cord.
3. If the projector has been on, allow it to cool down for at least half
an hour (or until the lamp is cool).
4. Turn the projector upside-down to access the lamp compartment.
5. Use the screwdriver included with the replacement lamp to slide
the edge of the lamp cover towards the side of the projector. Then
lift off the cover.
You can check to see how
many hours the lamp has
been used. See page 55.
Let the lamp cool before
replacing it. If the lamp
breaks, handle the shards
carefully to avoid injury.
