After your NEC LT260 projector lamp has been operating for 1500 hours (2000 hours in Eco mode) or longer, the “Lamp” indicator in the cabinet will blink red and an onscreen message will appear.

Replace the NEC LT260 projector lamp immediately as it will go into stand by mode after 1600 hours (2100 hours  in Eco mode) of service.

Go with authentic

Why go authentic? Counterfeit “compatible” lamps may appear to be a bargain but in the long run end up costing more due to their shorter lamp life. They are prone to explosions and can put your eyesight at risk. Due to their substitute toxic materials and carcinogenic parts, the few dollars you will save are not worth it.

The NEC LT260 uses the NEC LT60LPK replacement projector lamp. Keep your projector working properly by investing in an OEM lamp.
