The lamp of your projector is hotter than the regular ones and if you touch the lamp with naked hands you may leave oil traces on the surface of the lamp. The oil will burn and reduce the lamp’s life. Once the oil gets burnt the light that gets projected is diffused which diminishes the lumens which are being transferred to the refractive surface.

The light that is meant for projecting an image will not be sufficient and though you may not notice this in the beginning, the quality will start degrading and later make viewing impossible. It is advisable to allow the lamp to cool off completely and then turn off the projector. Turning it on and off repeatedly can put unnecessary load on the filament 

Leave your projector in place when it is being used. Do not make the mistake of moving it. The lamp when heated is in a very fragile state. So any kind of movement makes it extremely susceptible to damage. Thus when it is in use the lamp is heated which causes it to blow if it suffers any impact. Allow the lamp to cool off completely before you turn it off. Have the inside of your projector cleaned by your dealer every year to remove any dust.
