The only way i can leave my pj is in standby to turn it on or off withiut having to get a ladder out to use the swich all the time will this cause damage to tubes burn marks or hours used by being in stand by ty.mike
Mike already suggested that to me but I said I wansn't sure if it would power down in the same way?? Question is if the power button on the pj is at the beginning of the chain and therefore analagous to a wall switch. If all the switch does is cut the AC line then a wall switch would do exactly the same and as you say Lex that would be the answer! What do you think?Can you switch it on/off at the wall?
Just to clarify are you talking about CRT projectors or an LCD or DLP type? Its just because you used the word "lamp". With CRT pjs I don't beleive the fans stay on for extra time - I'll have to have a listen next time though to confirm.With most projectors, when you switch if off using the remote, the lamp is turned off but the fan continues to run to cool the lamp enevelope for a few minutes. If you remove the power before this has completed, you will shorten lamp life.
