At 4500 hours the lamp indicator will blink between green and red; the LAMP REPLACEMENT message will appear on the screen for one minute. When the lamp has been used for about 5700 hours the LAMP REPLACEMENTwill appear on the screen for one minute every 30 hours. If you notice a decrease in luminescence and or color brightness your projector lamp may be reaching end of life.
