As a former owner of this projector, I would also recommend that you do some research on this forum and think about reconsidering your choice if possible.


I had built a cooling/remote switch setup for mine which worked out well for the time I used it. I got up to around 500 hours on the bulb with this cooling fan but got rid of the projector before it had a chance to prove itself helpful or not.

I have a CD555 and have never had a problem with it after a year of heavy use. I think this blown bulb problem could have to do with enviroment. How cool is the room the machine is in? My theater is in a basement which is naturally air conditioned.


Perhaps you should turn the heat off in your theater. The projector will keep you warm.

Actually, the environment was pretty good. It was always run with the room well air-conditioned in the summer and the room was rarely over 65 degrees in the winter.


There have been a lot of people with this problem with the lp350/cd555m it wasn't just 1 or 2. The projector did run noticeably cooler with the additional fans that I had set up, but I upgraded to a new projector before I got the chance to see if it made a difference in bulb life.
