I have an old projector I'm converting to LED just for fun.
I've bought an 11000 lumen, 100 watt LED. I'd like to wire this directly into the housing unit for the old light, using the connectors from the original bulb with a step-up or step-down board to reach the 30V needed for the LED. However, I'm having trouble finding out the voltage that went to the original lamp.
The manual (https://www.manualslib.com/manual/720744/Sharp-Xg-Mb70x.html) for the projector (Sharp XG-MB70X) says it's a 275W bulb, but doesn't list the voltage/amperage that I've been able to find, though I've had trouble with understanding many of the diagrams in there, being new to this community and just beginning the long journey to understanding electrical diagrams.
Is there a way to find this out? I would just test it but thanks to numerous failsafe switches getting a Multimeter in there while it's actually running isn't possible without drilling holes through the housing.
Also, as a followup, I'm worried about the heat produced by the LED vs the original bulb. Any thoughts on the difference in heat between a 100W LED and 275W mercury bulb?
