Go with authentic lamps
It’s important to install the correct ASK Proxima SP-LAMP-001 lamp. Educate yourself and learn how to spot a counterfeit lamp. Generic lamps often advertised as “compatible” should be avoided since they are manufactured with inferior parts that can damage the sensitive (and expensive) components in your ASK C13 projector. Knockoff lamps are prone to explosion and have been created using toxic substances such as Krypton-85, which can threaten your health and safety. Using a counterfeit generic lamp will also void any warranty for you have. Spend the few extra dollars for a genuine OEM lamp that guarantees proper components and workmanship to ensure your projector is working at its peak. You’ll also be getting a lamp with a warranty that you’ll be able to return. Most legitimate resellers of these lamps also offer customer service help should you experience any difficulties when installing the ASK Proxima SP-LAMP-001. Go with authentic!

Put the lamp cover to one side.
