STEP 1: Buy the correct lamp
Finding the right lamp for your ASK Proxima DP-2000s projector can be a daunting. The market has been flooded with counterfeit lamps being advertised as “compatible.” They are tempting because of the cheaper price tag but they come with a hidden cost.

Their poor workmanship means these generic lamps are also not going to work properly with the sophisticated components in your projector. You run the risk of damaging your projector which will no longer be under warranty once a generic lamp has been installed.
