Step 1: Buy the right lamp

There are a lot of choices for buying Dukane ImagePro 8767 projector lamps so it can be confusing finding the best projector lamp. Look for the seal of approval so you know you are buying an authentic projector lamp and not a generic lamp. While generics have a slightly smaller price tag, they end up costing you more money on the long run due to their shorter lamp life and being prone to explosions. Since they have been created with toxic materials and without the proper safeguards to protect your eyesight, generics also pose a health risk to you. Avoid damaging the sensitive electronics in your projectors. Install an authentic projector lamp and avoid problems

Step 2: Recognize end of life

After your lamp has been operating for 2000 hours (up to 3000 hours in Eco mode), the LAMP indicator will blink red. Replace the projector lamp immediately when you see the message :The lamp has reached the end of its usable life. Please replace the lamp.” It may also be time to replace the projector lamp is you notice the colors on screen have faded or become distorted.

DO NOT KEEP USING THE FINISHED LAMP since the Dukane ImagePro 8775 will go into standby mode. Replace the projector lamp immediately.

Step 3: Replace the projector lamp

The Dukane ImagePro 8775 projector uses the Dukane 456-8775 projector lamp. Before installing a new projector lamp do the following safety steps:
