- How often should I change my lamps?
Most lamps are rated for 1000 hours, but we recommend you change them in the 600 to 800 hour range for best results. At 700 hours, this equals 2100 tanning sessions of 20 full minutes. If you use the tanning bed ONE time per day, this is almost 6 years. Most people tan seasonally, but have more than one person tanning on the bed, so on average this is about every 3 to 5 years, depending upon usage.
- Are they easy to install?
My answer is yes, but I must qualify that by stating it all depends on who is doing the installing. Some models of camera might be more difficult than others. Usually, it should be as much or little as twisting a screwdriver, pulling the lamp out, inserting the new one, and turning the set back on. This is definitely something to ask about before buying your camera.
- What can I do to help my projector lamp last longer?
Do not allow the projector to become overheated. The number one cause of lamp failure is excessive heat. Follow the instructions in the user manual for powering down the projector to ensure that the projector has had an adequate cool-down period.
Operate your projector in a clean, relatively dust-free environment. Clean air filters regularly.
Utilize the "economy mode" if it is available with your projector model.
