News — Arc Wander
Posted by Dalton Ikenberry at
So, you are having issues with your projector bulb flickering? Do not fret! This is a common issue and can arise in virtually any projector, but this issue is more common in certain models of projectors. The flickering is caused by what is called "arc wander." The point at which the arc strikes begins to move slightly on the electrode and makes a track that the arc "wanders" along. When this occurs, flickering frequently results. A period on max power may solve it, but if the arc track is well established, it cannot be reversed. What can cause this issue to arise? Well, several projector related things can cause the bulb to arc wander.
