Is it possible...


Standard Member
to have a projector lamp refurbished or rebuilt? I bought a Mitsubishi X300U projector, excellent display IMHO, on Ebay and the lamp has about 500 hours left. (I knew that when I bought it) I also knew the lamps are expensive but I see there is a guy in the States who reckons he can rebuild projector lamps and return them to nearly as good as new. Has anyone had this done or is it a scam?

PS My projector has a few dusts blobs. Anyone any experience of cleaning an X300U?

I found it hard to believe but being no expert in projector lamp technology I supposed there was a chance.

Yes it can be done dependent on the type of lamp, however the results arent always great, so your better off just stumping up the cash for a new 1

Make sure you do a web search as you can somtimes get a few decent deals on bulbs, which can save alot of money

Follow up.

This is the message I got when I asked the Ebay company about rebuilding my lamp. I copy it here as it may be of interest.

When the time comes, we'd be pleased to rebuild your Mitsubishi lamp. Cost would be
$279 plus $15.75 shipping to you. We guarantee your satisfaction for 60 days.
Brightness, color temp, and lifespan are comparable to new. Let us know when we can
be of service.

Best wishes,
