    Projection Lamps FAQ

    Buying Projector Lamps on the Web - What You Need to Know

    PureGlare has been a supplier of replacement projector and TV lamps to the world wide for over 20 years. Our online shopping has allowed people to search for projector lamps and compare lamp prices across a variety of stores, but it is important to know exactly what you are comparing. We have written this section to help explain the difference varieties of genuine lamp modules, bare bulbs, original bulb inside lamp modules and compatible / generic bulb inside lamp modules.

    Print Print

    Everything you need to know about replacement projector and TV lamps

  • If you own a multimedia LCD or DLP projector, you may have to replace the projector's lamp when it has stopped functioning. The average projector lamp's bulb lasts for around 2,000 hours, so most projector users will need to replace their lamp at least twice over the lifetime of the projector. Since projector lamps can be expensive, it is important that you have the most accurate and up to date information about projector and TV lamps before you buy.
  • There are four major components for a complete lamp module, which includes burner, reflector, plastic module housing (often called a cage) and power connector, all of which are important parts to understand when purchasing a projector lamp. Some companies do not sell the complete lamp module which can cause frustration and confusion for customers. Such as the bare lamp, this includes a burner and reflector at a basic level.
  • A long lasting and well-performing lamp requires a good quality burner and reflector. But most importantly, adequate cooling makes a big difference for the lifespan of the lamp. For instance, operating a projector / TV in a hot, humid or poorly ventilated environment can shorten the lifespan of the lamp. For some projectors, this is even more of a concern, such as compact or portable projectors, as they are more physically compact and therefore have poorer heat dissipation properties. Therefore, always check the cooling fan and air filter when you replace the lamp. Keep in mind that the cooling capability of the projector / TV will diminish over time with usage, cooling fans will wear if not serviced (ie. re-oiled, cleaned or replaced), and an unfunctional air filter can block the air flow. You also need to clean the lamp cabinet as the built-up dust can trap heat inside the projector / TV.

    Projector Lamp Anatomy

  • A projector lamp contains several components: the ARC tube, ultra-high pressurized mercury vapor, electrical wiring, a quartz globe or reflector, a fastener, a spoke, a bolt, a screw and finally the black plastic housing itself.
  • ARC Tube - The ARC tube is a component made of blown quartz measuring about 2 inches in length that located at the base of the quartz globe. The ARC tube is positioned by highly-accurate machines and set with extra strength plaster.
  • Mercury Vapor - The mercury vapor inside most projector lamp ARC tubes is ultra-high pressurized. The mercury vapor is sensitive to the amount of current running through therefore it is needed for projectors to have electrical ballasts inside them to regulate electricity flow. The ballasts ignite the mercury vapor at a high voltage and then bring the voltage level down to the appropriate running voltage required to operate the projector lamp.
  • Electrical Wiring - The electrical wiring on a projector lamp is fused inside the quartz ARC tube and runs out the top of the tube through the side of the reflector. Electricity, regulated by the ballast, runs in a circuit from the back of the projector lamp through the side and back into the projector.
  • Quartz Globe reflector - The quartz globe or reflector is the hard exterior skeleton of a projector lamp. The quartz globe is usually lined with a highly reflective metal material on the inside in order to reflect the light generated by the ignition of the mercury vapor inside the ARC tube. The quartz globe also holds the ARC tube in place and is usually filled with extra strength caulking to seal it in its base.
  • Plastic Housing - The plastic housing is the piece of moulded plastic that holds the projector lamp in place when it is sitting inside the projector. Projector lamps are usually locked into the plastic housing using a retaining clip. The attached wiring easily screws into a slot at the back of the plastic housing.
  • For more information about projector lamps, please do not hesitate to Contact Us.

  • Print Print

    How does a projector lamp work?

  • A projector lamp operates by sending an electrical current across an ARC gap that is full of ultra-high pressurized mercury vapour. The electricity lights the mercury vapour which then causes the lamp to emit a light with an extreme intensity or brightness. The bright light created by this process shines onto an LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) or DLP panel which then in turn produces the fantastic images projectors are known for.
  • Projector lamps are produced by a extremely complex technology that is very costly to manufacturer, therefore the price of projector lamps tends to be pretty high.

  • Print Print

    What are bare lamps for projector / TV?

    We sell projector lamps in two formats. The standard format is with the projector lamp encased in a high-temperature resistant black plastic cage / housing. But, we also sell just the bare projector lamp alone.
  • More than 97% of our lamps are with HOUSING. Purchasing the lamps with housing will have less hassle for installation.
  • The primary reason people consider changing the bulb without the housing is to reduce cost. But as the prices of lamps have dropped, the difference in price between the bare lamp and the lamp with housing is not as much as in the past. It often requires skills and experiences to install the bare lamp into your existing housing. And also, your existing housing must be in a good re-useable condition. It can be a very good solution when the completed lamp module (with housing) is no longer available on the market.

  • Our Exclusive Service
  • If you purchase our bare lamp and you don't want to take a risk to install it yourself, you can send your existing cage / housing to us. We will install it for you for no extra charge. You will need to make usre that your existing housing is in good re-useable condition.

    What are compatible projector / TV lamps?

    One of the main areas of confusion, when buying a replacement projector lamp, is over the authenticity of the lamp and how to tell whether the lamp is genuine or not. Recent changes in the projector and TV lamp market, in the last few years, allow you to have a number of different options available to you, when it is time to replace your DLP television or multimedia projector lamp. You can now choose between a projector lamp made by the original manufacturer, or a cost effective lamp that is compatible with original manufacturers’ lamps from PureGlare. We will help you differentiate between the trusted compatible lamp bulbs available from PureGlare and the counterfeit options represented by our competitors. We are dedicated in helping you avoid buying an inferior, counterfeit, or incompatible lamp for your projector or TV.

    What are "original bulb inside" projector / TV lamps?

    Lamp modules with 'Original bulb inside' are assembled with genuine original bulbs (Philips, Osram, Ushio, etc. bulb inside) and tailor-made, custom-designed housings. They have the equivalent performance of the original with the best performance ratio over price and quality.

    Print Print

    Where is my projector lamp located?

    • The lamp is the heart of any projector; it shines light through a DLP or LCD system so that the projector lamp can display its beautiful images.
    • The projector lamp can be found by locating a square or rectangle plastic plate on the outer shell of the projector, the plate is usually on the bottom of the projector but can sometimes be found on the top or sides.
    • The covering is often secured in place by two screws. Undoing the two screws and lifting the plate off, will reveal the bottom of the plastic housing that holds the projector lamp in place in your projector.
    • The plastic housing usually has a handle attached to it. Pulling the handle gently will remove the projector lamp and housing from the projector.

    Installing a projector / TV bare lamp (lamp without housing)

    A screwdriver and a pair of clean gloves are all you will need in order to install your brand new projector / TV bare lamp.

  • (1) Turn off and unplug the projector / TV.
  • (2) Allow the device to cool down. It could take anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes for the projector / TV to cool down completely. Then remove any dust on the outside casing with a soft, dry, and clean cloth. This will ensure that dust does not enter into the machine and get onto the vulnerable interior parts.
  • (3) Remove the old lamp module from the projector / TV.
  • (4) Open the lamp housing to gain access to the old bulb.
  • (5) Clean the dust off the housing and make sure it is free of any debris.
  • (6) Unscrew the wires that are connected to the bulb and connector. Remember the wiring of the strings.
  • (7) Remove the retaining clips and screws that are holding the old bulb in place.
  • (8) Replace the old bulb with the new bulb. Fasten the clips and screws back into place.
  • Be aware
    Please wear a pair of clean gloves or get a paper towel to handle the new bulb. You must do this without touching the bulb with your bare hands. Any amount of bodily/skin oil will cause problems very soon.

    Installing a projector / TV lamp module (lamp with housing)

    It is well known that a majority of multimedia projectors / TVs have replaceable lamps that can be easily replaced in case they stop functioning.

    The right moment to change a lamp is determined by the deterioration of image quality such as decrease of brightness or color fading. Some projectors have a light indicator for lamp replacement.

    It is recommended to read the instruction for lamp installation in your projector / TV user manual before you start. Replacing a lamp is simple and can be performed in a few steps using the following instructions:

  • (1) Make sure that your power switch is off and that the power cord is unplugged from the electrical socket. It is also wise to unplug any other cables and label them in order to restore them in the right way once the lamp is replaced. Allow the projector / TV to cool down for at least 30 minutes.
  • (2) In order to see the lamp, remove the access handle on the outside cover. You may need to use a screwdriver.
  • (3) Pull out the used lamp and clean the relevant parts using micro fiber products and not paper. Please note that in some projectors a small inside filter should also be replaced.
  • (4) Insert the new lamp into the projector carefully avoiding touching the glass of the lamp itself and any other galss surface. Touching the lamp will deposit skin oil that will likely cause the overheat destabilised in the spot where it was touched. It will cause the lamp to explode or prematurely fail.
  • (5) Reassemble the access panel, reconnect the cables and power up the projector.
  • (6) Reset lamp (clear lamp hour meter) to clear the remaining lamp time and the lamp hour meter.

  • Lamp Reset
  • The projector has a built-in counter which keeps track of the lamp operating time. When the cumulative operating time reaches a certain point, it causes the replacement warning message to be displayed. Therefore, the counter needs to be reset after the lamp has been replaced with a new one. You can do this using the menu displayed on screen. For some model of the projector, you must complete lamp reset within 10 minutes of switching power ON, otherwise, the projector turns itself off automatically.
  • For some model of the projector, when the lamp exceeds the limit hours of service, the projector cannot turn on and the menu is not displayed. If this happens, you need to find out the information in your user manual to clear the lamp hour meter by using remote control or pressing the multiple combination buttons on machine. When the lamp time clock is reset to zero, the lamp indicator goes out.
  • Do not reset the lamp timer without replacing the lamp. Do not use it longer when a warning message is displayed as the lamp could explode. Reset the lamp timer always when replacing the lamp. The message functions will not operate properly if the lamp timer is not reset correctly.

    Refurbishment dangers

    The Dangers of Refurbishing a Projector Lamp Bulb

    You may have heard about projector lamp or bulb refurbishment. Although on the surface this can appear a cheap way to replace your projector's lamp, you should be aware of the dangers of doing this. PureGlare Australia strongly advises against projector or TV lamp refurbishment due to the risks to hardware and personal safety.

    Print Print

    What causes a bulb to explode and what can be done about it?

    The majority of projectors use high-pressure mercury bulbs. These bulbs produce light by forming an electrical arc between two tungsten electrodes in the bulb burner. The burner is made of quartz glass and contains a gaseous mixture with an internal pressure of up to 250 atmospheres at temperatures of up to 1,300 degrees Celsius. In certain circumstances, the burner in the bulb may explode. Luckily, projectors have been constructed with this possibility in mind and therefore bulb explosion should not damage the projector. Nevertheless, it is advisable to avoid such explosions.

    What can cause an explosion?

    Most explosions happen for one of the following reasons:

  • Bulb manufacturing defect
  • The glass on the burner may be thinner in some places or have a micro rupture as a result of a manufacturing defect. After the bulb is switched on, the internal pressure increases and the weakened glass may not be able to withstand the pressure, which in turn causes an explosion. Explosions due to manufacturing defects usually occur within the first minutes or hours of operation. This means that such event is covered by the lamp’s warranty. Also, this is not likely to happen very often since most manufacturers let their bulbs “burn” for some time before dispatching them from the factory.
  • Mistake during installation – touching the bare bulb with your hand
  • Never touch a bulb with your bare hands, especially not directly on the burner or parts around it. This leaves a greasy spot on the bulb, which causes it to heat up more than the rest of the lamp. As a consequence of thermal expansion, internal tension between the different temperature points can be so strong that the glass cracks. This problem occurs more often when replacing bare bulbs than when replacing the lamp with housing as a whole. Therefore, we strongly recommend that you use gloves when replacing a bare bulb.
  • Non-optimal operating conditions
  • Even if the bulb does not have a manufacturing defect, weak spots may occur on the glass burner of the bulb if the projector lamp is used under non-optimal operating conditions. These may be caused by:
    • continuous or very frequent use of the lamp;
    • a mechanical vibration that affects functioning or causes a hot lamp;
    • low temperatures when the projector is switched on;
    • frequently switching the projector on and off;
    • not leaving enough time for the lamp to cool down after switching the projector off.
  • Insufficient lamp cooling
  • Especially when a projector is operated in a dusty or smoky environment, the projector dust filters may become clogged, leading to inadequate cooling of the lamp. The projector should detect the overheated lamp in time, switch it off, and allow it to cool down. However, this does not always happen and that’s why an overheated lamp may crack.
  • End of lifespan
  • A projector lamp should not be used indefinitely and that’s why the lamp should be replaced as soon as the projector signals that the end of the lamp lifespan is nearing. We strongly recommend not to merely reset the operating time counter and to continue using the old lamp, because this considerably increases the risk of a lamp explosion. During operation the lamp loses material on the main electrodes in the lamp’s burner, which increases the distance between them. The greater the gap between the electrodes, the higher the electrical voltage needed to create and maintain the electrical arc. At the end of the lamp’s operating life, the voltage required to create the arc between the main electrodes is so high that during regular operation the ballast in the lamp (device regulating the power supply to the lamp) might not be able to supply the necessary voltage. However, the starting electrode will still keep heating the gaseous mixture contained in the burner of the lamp to the point where the burner may explode.
  • Projector defect
  • Bulb explosions are often caused by projector defects and this is especially the case if the lamp’s ballast fails. Due to a projector defect, the ballast may supply the lamp with an incorrect voltage, fail to switch off the power supply or prevent the bulb from overheating. If a new bulb explodes in your projector for the second time, by all means you should take the projector to get serviced. The most common causes of lamp explosions are a combination of several factors. For example, it could be a combination of using a worn-out bulb, a projector which is often handled, and dust or grease in the filter.

  • How to prevent bulb explosions?
  • Try to use your projector as much as possible in accordance with the previous advice. We have summarised this information in the last section under the title of How can I Extend My Projector Lamp Life?

    Print Print
  • How long should my projector lamp last for?

    All projector lamps have an expected operating time, called lamp life. This value is expressed in numbers of hours, and is typically around 1,500 to 2,000 hours. Newer models claim 5,000 hours of lamp life and more. An individual lamp's light output duration is based on a bell curve, so that a majority of (but not all) lamps will meet the lamp life hours specified. Most manufacturers provide a warranty covering their lamps for a certain number of hours or period of time.

    Print Print

    How can I preserve my projectors performance?

  • It is very important allow your projector to cool down sufficiently before unplugging it. This will prolong the life of your lamp and prevent the loss of your lamp or projector from overheating. Please allow your projector to cool off properly after use.
  • It is also of high importance to keep the filter clean and all air vents and openings clear of dust and lint.
  • Make sure that the projector has enough "breathing room" with adequate ventilation, so that the unit doesn't overheat, putting extra pressure on the motor and the lamp.

    Print Print
  • How can you prevent over heating?

    Never operate the halogen lamp above the rated operating temperature. The seal temperature should always be maintained below 350°C and the bulb temperature should be kept between 250°C and 550°C. Make sure that the cooling system is functioning properly. Do not allow one lamp to directly expose another. If a reflector is being used make sure that the IR is not reflected back into the filament or into its support. Finally, make sure that particles do not fall on the lamp.

    Print Print

    How can I Extend My Projector Lamp Life?

    Projector lamp lives are influenced by several factors. The most damaging factor affecting lamp life is the overheating during their regular performing. Here are some practical advices that will help to extend your projector lamp life and avoid overheating.

  • Ventilation:
  • The most important in extending your projector lamp normal operation is to mount your projector in a space with ample ventilation. It is well known that projectors that are mounted in corners, or extremely close vicinity to the ceiling or in rooms with little air flow, are doomed to expire earlier.
  • Vacuum and Blow Compressed Air:
  • Gathering of dust inside your projector can cause the projector lamp to burn at a over nominal temperature, which will cut its life short. Please take care to vacuum your projector and blow the dust out with compressed air on a regular basis depending also on the projector usage.
  • Change or Clean Your Filter Regularly:
  • Almost every projector is equipped with a filter that prevents dust from getting inside the sensitive circuitry. During time, the filter gets clogged with dust and it can cause the projector lamp to burn at a hotter temperature than required and diminish its lamp life.
  • The filter on your projector is usually found behind a small rectangular panel that measures 0.5" by 6" long. Please clean the filter or if necessarily replace it with a new one.
  • Do Not Turn Your Projector On and Off Quickly:
  • Turning your projector on and off quickly can have devastating effects on your projector lamp. Projector lamps typically take about a minute before they are running at a stable current. Projectors have special ballasts inside them that ignite projector lamps at a high voltage and then run them at a low voltage. If you turn your projector on and off quickly it can cause the ultra-high pressurized mercury vapor to become destabilized, which will in turn cause your projector lamp to fail permanently.
  • Do Not Move the Projector When the Lamp is Hot:
  • When hot, the lamp is very fragile and susceptible to damage, so never move the projector when in use, or immediately after turning it off, without allowing it sufficient time to cool down.
  • Run Your Projector in Economy Mode:
  • The modern projectors have two modes of operation: normal mode and economy mode. Economy mode usually makes the projector lamp emit a slightly lower brightness level and therefore can extend the projector lamp's life. If you are not sure if your projector has economy mode, please reference to your projector's manual or contact the manufacturer.
  • Oder a New Lamp in Time and Do Not Dispose of the Old One:
  • Do not wait for the projector to stop working completely and order a new lamp as soon as the indicator alerts you that the life expecttancy is coming to an end. Consequently, the original lamp will not be used up completely and you can keep it as a spare or diagnostic lamp. It will come in handy in case of the unexpected malfunction.
  • Wear Gloves When Replacing the Lamp:
  • Never touch the bulb in the lamp module with your bare hands. Wear plastic gloves, otherwise grease and dirt from your hands will stick to the lamp, which results in varying surface temperatures when in use, and this could cause a failure of the lamp, or even bursting. Also, make sure the lamp module is firmly in place after the installation and if not, fix it securely.
  • Test the Lamp Immediately after Purchase
  • Use a new lamp more intensively than usual, any malfunction generally occurs during the first 10 hours of operation. We recommend that schools and businesses wich stock replacement lamps test each lamp by using it for at least 20 hours.

    LEDs FAQ

    What is an LED?

    LED stands for light-emitting diode. LEDs are small light sources that become illuminated by the movement of electrons through a semiconductor material. LEDs have been around for many years and have been used in a variety of applications. LED traffic lights are used widely in Australia and most of us still use a remote control with an infra-red LED as the transmitter.


    Print Print

    What is an LED globe?

    LED globes are designed to replace traditional bulbs and fluorescent tubes by combining multiple light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to create an energy-efficient and cost-saving source of light.

    Print Print

    What are the benefits of switching to LED globes?

    Do LED lights generate heat?

    LED lights generate very little heat. They are ideal for kitchens, dens, offices, or anywhere you are working in close proximity to a standard light bulb.

    Print Print

    Will they fit my existing light fittings?

    LEDs can be retro-actively fitted to virtually any traditional light fitting. That means overhauling your entire home or office is a relatively simple procedure. They can also be applied creatively as accent lighting and can be used to illuminate feature furnishings in the home or office.

    The E27 base (sometimes called a Medium Edison Screw fitting) is the most common found bulb base. This base applies to most all standard screw in lighting outlets.
    The B22 base (sometimes called a Bayonet fitting) is widely used in homes.
    Though size may vary slightly Tube bulbs all look very similar. This base is typically found on T12 38.1mm (12 / 8 inch) diameter, T10 31.8mm (10 / 8 inch) diameter, T8 26mm (1 inch) diameter, T5 16mm (5 / 8 inch) diameter and T4 12.7mm (4 / 8 inch) diameter Tube bulbs.

    What colours can LEDs emit?

    LEDs are generally monochromatic meaning they emit only one colour. Light colour is associated with the light wavelength. LEDs made with different semiconductor materials emit lights in different wavelengths. LED light wavelengths range from 400 nanometres (blue) to 800 nanometres (red). Popular colours available include warm white, cool white or natural white.

  • DOWNLIGHTS: Featuring 100% aluminium housing and containing no hazardous materials, these downlights project a warm white colour and boast a lifetime of up to 30 years.
  • FLOODLIGHTS: LED floodlights operate efficiently and save power by reducing maintenance and service costs due to their long life. Save between 60%-80% on your electricity costs in comparison with high pressure sodium lamps.
  • HIGH BAY: LED high bays are 75% more energy efficient and eliminate on-going maintenance costs, making them a cost effective and eco-friendly lighting solution. They can be used as a low power replacement for the 500W conventional mercury vapour high bays.
  • SPOTLIGHTS: The narrow bulbs use only 9W of energy to replace a 50W incandescent bulb and last 10x longer (up to 50, 000 hours). These bulbs provide warm white light and excellent colour rendition and are the most environmentally friendly lighting solution available today. Ideal for the home or office.
  • TUBE LIGHTS are designed to replace standard fluorescent tubes. They emit a cool white light whilst also reducing power consumption which in turn, saves money.
  • The physical glass tube used in traditional fluorescent tubes has been replaced by a more robust plastic composition making these LED tubes considerably safer.
    9W LED tubes replace 18W standard fluorescents and 18W LED tubes replace 36W standard fluorescents and are available in both 600mm and 1200mm lengths.

    Warning: These tubes cannot be used as a direct replacement for standard fluorescent tubes as very minor re-wiring (just by-pass the ballast and remove the starter) is required and is recommended to be done by a licensed electrician

    Can LED bulbs be used with Dimmers?

    Yes. However, not all bulbs are dimmable, and therefore, you can only use bulbs that are designed to be dimmed in a dimmable fixture.

    Print Print

    Will the bulbs come on immediately, or will they have to "warm up" like the older energy saving bulbs do?

    LED lights come on instantly. That means absolutely no warming up required. Furthermore, turning the LED light on and off does not decrease its lifespan.

    What's this I hear about a government phase-out of incandescent globes?

    The Australian government is gradually phasing-out all inefficient incandescent light bulbs. The phase-out will deliver considerable savings to the environment and the economy. Across the country, the move to more efficient lighting, such as LEDs, is expected to save around 30 terawatt hours of electricity and 28 million tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions between 2008 and 2020.
