Projector lamps

Posted on 10 February, 2013 at 16:37 Comments comments ()
Projector lamps are quoted to operate anywhere between 3000-4000Hrs from manufactures, the manufacture warranty on lamps is three or six months or 2000-4000hrs depending on the brand. Factors that reduce the life of a lamp is the amount of times you turn the projector on and off as well as not cleaning filters on a regular basis. Never turn the projector immediately back on if the mains power is interrupted in anyway, a 5min cooling period is highly recommended or the lamp will deteriorate prematurely. Another recommendation, when you do change a lamp, it is very important to reset the lamp usage timer as this is the only indication you have to replace the lamp when due, if this is ignored the lamp can explode causing more damage from the shattered hot glass particles within the optical engine.Projectors are now being designed with LED technology and manufactures now rate the LED's to last 100,000hrs, so the projector would be  classed as maintenance free! They are also designed with 3D pass through HDMI Inputs. Physically they are quite bulky and are a little costly at the moment but I am sure the prices will come down as always but if you can afford one, they are well worth having a look. In my honest opinion the LED DMD dark chip technology has an image second to none for large screen home theater bluray movies.

Infrared contol problems!

Posted on 12 November, 2012 at 16:38 Comments comments ()
Something to look out for in BluRay players or any other  I/R remote controlled product -

I have recently had an inquiry from a customer who was complaining that his one week old BluRay player would suddenly forward chapters or pause for some unknown reason. When we bench tested his BluRay, we found no issues what so ever but a quick service call showed that the BluRay player was faulting due to interference from the energy saving lamps he was using in the room. At some stage they would transmit Infrared red data on the same wavelength as the player and was causing the the BluRay player to forward tracks or pause for no reason.
I have known natural sun light reflected from objects in the room and redirected to the BluRay player did cause similar problems.
This would also apply to most I/R controlled equipment eg. DVD players, CD players etc.

Another experience with Infrared was when i was getting feedback from a celebrant who was performing an outdoor wedding, he could not get the CD player on the portable PA unit to function with the remote control as the sunlight completely washed out the infrared signal from the remote control to the PA CD player.

So next time you have a similar problem, just keep this in mind.

Thanks for reading, keep tuned for more experiences!

Hi-fi Maintanance

Posted on 7 October, 2012 at 20:29 Comments comments ()
People often ask me what should I use to clean my RCA connection, I have used many contact cleaners in the past but the best contact cleaner  I have come across so far would have to be one called Deoxit D5 manufactured by CAIG Laboratories Inc. I have used this on UHF wireless microphone aerials and the improvement is enormous. As for audio plugs and sockets, what more can I say, it's fantastic! It improves conductivity, deoxidizes oxide build up, seals and protects electrical connections. So don't get caught with poor connections, get yourself a can and use it before you start to hear noises.
Enjoy your music!!!
