Hello.


I need a new lamp for my Benq W5000 and I found this on eBay: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...id=p2759.l1259

That seems to be just the bulb, without the plastic casing that goes around it.


It says it comes with gloves and such, but can I possibly just replace the bulb in the lamp casing I use now?

It was pretty cheap and seems like a good deal, but I'm not really an expert.


Thanks

You can buy two types, one that is complete with the cage and bulb already in it, and you just put the whole new unit in, easy peasy...

Then you have the ones where you just get the globe/bulb as you have found out, it cost's less but takes a bit more time as you have to undo a few screws and what not from the cage, and then re attach the new globe into the cage.

Bit more fiddly but no big deal, lots of people do it and saves you a bit of money.


Just wear the gloves as you dont want to touch the globe with your hands/fingers.

Ok, yeah, I'm an electrician so know about the no touch part



Thanks a lot for your answer. Buying that will save me a lot of money compared to buying it with a cage in Norway
