JP-UK Frequently Asked Questions: Why There Is A Burning Smell When customers Change Their Panas

Industry: IT

Customers often complain about a burning smell coming from their projectors after changing their Panasonic projector lamp. In most cases this is nothing to worry about.

United Kingdom (PRUnderground) November 26th, 2013

Often when changing an expired projector lamp dust and debris which has been trapped in the lamp socket can become dislodged. In addition the new projector lamp will reach higher temperatures than the previous one, due to this the dust is often burned when the new lamp is turned on. Sometimes this dust can shorten the lifespan of a new projector lamp. In order to prevent this and to eliminate the burning smell it is advisable to take some time to carefully vacuum the interior socket of the projector and if applicable, change the air filter prior to installing the new bulb.

When vacuuming the projector ensure that you do not use canned air. This is because canned air does not actually remove the dust, merely blows it to a new location. In some cases this can actually make the situation worse.

When it comes to installing your new Panasonic projector lamp you should ensure that the lamp fits comfortably into the socket, however do not force it in. Installing a projector lamp, if done correct should only require one hand.

If a burning smell remains after you have followed the above advice it is advisable that you seek professional help.
