Raman water sensitivity fail

Dear Agilent Community.


We have a Cary Eclipse fluorescence spectrophotometer (part number 02-101669-00, serial number EL 0604-3601) that is failing the Raman water sensitivity tests at both 350 and 500 nm excitation.


It passed all the tests when a new lamp was installed in 2016.


Is this a indication that it may be time for a new lamp?


Is there a counter that logs the lamp hours?


Is there a test specifically to determine the performance of the lamp?


We're using WinFLR 1.2 (147) under Windows 10 32-bit.
