Hey, my projector bulb keeps burning out!

Did you know that the cost of one projector bulb replacement is around $250? Please make an effort to turn off your projectors when you are not using them. If you are using it soon, then click the "blank" button on your remotes to save the bulb life in between lessons. Click the "blank" button again to turn it back on. Remember to completely turn your projector off at the end of the day. Hopefully this tip will save you from having to wait for a replacement in the future.
