Is it safe to put a really powerful lamp in a 2000 lumen DLP projector? Answered
I bought my Mitsubishi SD205U projector used. Eventually, the bulb is going to fail, and I want to know some stuff before it dies. I plan on buying an LED, driver, and heatsink off of Ebay, and modding the projector to use it. The best lens I can find it 60-80 degrees. A bunch of the light will go into the projector, will this damage anything? And other than the wasted light, will it hurt the image quality?
Next question, can I put a much more powerful LED in it without damaging anything?
Finally, is there anything I should know of before attempting this project?
