what kind of failure are you referring to?
I'd say 300hrs would be FPN failure?
if this is the case, same with 16mm as 35mm?
Could need a full electronic alignment or integration chamber is dirty, dropping light levels...

I had a Spirit for a good 8ish years and I never had a lamp fail before the
Only if we did a extreme amount of power off/on (as happens during fault
searching on a beast like that).
Usually I forgot to change lamp and they died at about 1200-2000hrs.
If your lamps at popping after 300hrs you are either powering it down every
night, or have bad cooling. I would guess.
Make sure everything is 'in place' in the lampbox and all the cooling
flangs (or what the word is) are intact.
And that you use the heat-paste correctly when fitting a new lamp.
That's the only thing I can think of.
Keep the film running.

I have a doubt about time duration lamp on Spirit datacine (SDC2000)
Actually we can't go beyond 300h instead of 500h.
Is someone have an idea about this?
