About Projection Lights Lamps BulbsTubes Valves
Thanks for Stopping By Cyndee$Attic : )
I hope you Find This *Guide a bit Helpful I have done quite a bit of research but
I AM NOT an EXPERT.....
the Manufacturer of Your Equipment is the PRO please refer to all original supplied manuals
How you handle your Lamp/Bulb & Equipment
directly relates to the proper operation & Life of the lamp
The Lamps you Purchase from my Store Cyndee$Attic
Are all Cleaned & Electronically Tested
(Except MR, ARC & GAP Filament Mini Sub-miniature Lights)
before being Carefully re-packaged shipped to you
Before installing the bulb, Visually check inspect bulb for damage. DO NOT INSTALL IT IF THERE is ANY TRANSPORT DAMAGE
~~~~IF you go ahead and USE IT a carrier claim can NOT be submitted this is the chance you chose to take
( I do not accept USED lamps on Return)
Carrier Damage may result no matter how perfect a packaging job!
DO NOT TOUCH EVER GLASS with bare fingers.
This accounts for 95% of Bulb Failures
use a soft cloth paper towel
(or wear cotton gloves) (Yeah right I'll bet you will go out and buy a pair)
Avoid turning Lamp on & off splice smaller reels on to large reels
- DO NOT Bump the projector this can cause instant failure
- purchase a DIMMER for slow start this will extend the lamp life tremendously
- If you have inadvertantly touched the Glass,
take the time to carefully clean it with a Good Glass Cleaner or Alcohol on a soft Cloth
Handle lamp with clean dry towel (or cotton glove). I mention this but most people do not put on gloves
Also, make sure bulb is warmed up /or cooled down to room temperature before installing.
Be Sure The Power is OFF on your Equipment
neat trick =use a switch dimmer installed in line for slow start (as stated above)
Be sure the fan is operating properly and your projector is free from DUST
- When used , bulb may shatter or explode if very cold, or if it contains fingerprint oils or moisture.
The bulb also may develop a HOT SPOT or bubble where you may have touched it
This is especially a concern for Halogen and high wattage/temperature bulbs.
Be sure and use the correct manufacturer's replacement lamp per your Equipment guide
I will be glad to assist in finding YOUR application
(I do not beleive in Substitutions that's like putting Vegatable oil in your engine's crankcase)
If you find a lamp that looks like your lamp it's a good start to locating the right lamp
Email thru Ebay with whatever info you have & I WILL Find YOUR CORRECT LAMP
(providing your equipment has NOT been modified)
NEVER Just Go by the Photo there are too many Variables... when in Doubt ASK.. it's FREE!
NOS lamps have no determined life expectancy!
No one can predict the Life expectancy of a lamp Not Even the manufacturer
so have a spare on hand so there is no disappointment
Voltage plays a major roll in the life of a lamp.. power surges
turning the lamp on & off all shorten a Lamps life
IMPACT : do not hit the projector or the lamp..... absolutely Don't Drop it
it's already been dropped a dozen times by the carrier before you received it
Force can damage the alignment of the lamp causing it to not function properly or damage the filament
I do not illuminate any Projection Lamps ...as it causes carbon to the filament,
they become brittle and they do not transport well
I Carry many Brands of Lamps SYLVANIA & GE (MAZDA &Westinghouse Division) Lamps are Usually available for more $
I also have Ushio,Wiko, Eiko, Radiant, Riluma these are normally less expensive
My prices are as best to market as I can get .. as my supply diminishes the price increases
Overstocks are priced accordingly if i have 200 Sylvania DAY lamps you will see them priced to go...
If you have any questions Please Contact me using the EBAY LINK ask seller a question
