Is it necessary to replace the laser light source after using it for 20,000 hours?
We recommend you have your dealer check and clean your projector and replace the laser light source after about 20,000 hours of use. While it’s possible to continue using the projector after this time without replacing the light source, light output at about 20,000 hours will have decreased to approximately 50 % of its original level.
Why is laser light-source replacement recommended at 20,000 hours?
The value of 20,000 hours is the estimated time at which your projector’s light output will have decreased to approximately 50 % of its original level at the time of shipment when used in specific operating modes at certain altitude ranges and in certain operating environments.
