Using a counterfeit generic lamp will void any warranty for your ASK C2 Compact/C6 Compact projector. A generic lamp can create poor illumination as well damaging the sensitive components in your projector. Knock-off lamps lack both the proper components and workmanship to ensure your projector is working at its peak.  Learn how to spot a counterfeit lamp.
