Safety Concerns around Projector Lamps

There are several options available when replacing the lamp in your projector. Some are safer and more reliable than others.

The dangers of re-bulbing

Advanced’s new projector lamp division, Projector Lamp Experts, recommends that only brand new lamps made by reputable manufacturers are purchased for replacement. We have taken the decision to exclude any type of lamp refurbishment/re-bulbing from the services we offer to our customers.

Mercury Hazard

We have concerns over the safety and quality of lamps that have been re-bulbed and feel it would be unprofessional to put the safety of our customers and their equipment at risk. The deposition of poisonous mercury on the lamp’s casing, and the fact that replacing just the bulb means that other parts subjected to heat damage during the lamp’s operation (like the reflectors and connectors) remain unchanged, are the principle reasons behind our decision.

APO – the cost effective way

For those seeking a more cost-effective way to replace their projector’s lamp, we offer APO branded compatible lamps where these are available. APO is a high-quality ISO9001 rated manufacturer of compatible lamps that tests each lamp for beam performance, lamp life, connections and appearance, so you can trust them to work flawlessly in your projector. APO lamps are typically up to 30% less expensive than the alternative made by the original projector manufacturer, and so present a high-quality yet cost effective way to replace your lamps. APO lamps are supplied with a double warranty covering both the lamp and your projector against premature lamp failure.

For more information on replacement lamps, including our new APO range, contact a Projector Lamp Expert at 1-866-773-7770 or visit
