Caution: Do not tilt the projector or place in an unstable place. The projector

Warning: Connect the power plug to a properly grounded three-prong AC outlet.
If it is connected to an ungrounded outlet, fire and/or electrical shock may result.
Caution: Handling the power plug with wet hands can cause electric shock.

power switch ‘off’. Insert the power cord into the power socket on the projector
body and plug into the wall outlet. Turn the power switch ‘on’. Remove the
battery cover from the back of the remote controller. Insert batteries into the
remote controller as illustrated and replace the battery cover. Adjust the position
of the projector so that the projector light is centered on the screen. Be sure the
projector is in the position from which it will be used. To focus the projector, slide
the focusing knob that is found on the underside of the projector base (on the
same side as the lamp cover). There is a barrel screw that must be loosened
before the knob can be moved. The enclosed Allen wrench can be used to
loosen or tighten this screw.

6. Maintenance and Care
6.1 Daily Maintenance
•
•
•
•
Cover the projector when not in use. This instrument is sensitive to dust
contamination.
Turn the power switch off when not in use. It is also recommended to
unplug this instrument when not in use for longer periods of time.
Keep projector clean by wiping the outside panels with a dry cloth. To
remove more difficult stains, a damp cloth with a mild detergent may be
used. A mild glass cleaner may be used on the outside panels. Be
careful not to dampen the inside parts of the projector.
When the lens is dirty, wipe it lightly with a good quality, dry microfiber
cloth. An Amcon Vista Cham is recommended.
6.2 Replacing the Bulb
Caution: To avoid electric shock, unplug the power cable when replacing the
projection lamp.
Caution: Do not replace the projection lamp immediately after turning off the
light. The lamp may still be hot and could lead to burns.
Turn the power switch off. Remove the lamp cover screw and remove the cover.
Remove the lamp attaching screw, hold the socket and remove the lamp. Hold
the socket and the lamp flange and remove the lamp from the socket. Install the
new lamp securely. Make sure you install it in the correct direction. Do not touch
the glass of the bulb directly with your fingers. If the bulb is touched by accident,
wipe the fingerprint off with alcohol. Replacement bulbs are available from
Amcon Product number: RQ-6200. Match the protruded part of the lamp
attaching area with the lamp flange notch and tighten with the lamp attaching
screw to secure the lamp. Place the lamp cover on. Turn the power switch on.
Make a trial projection to check that there is no illumination irregularity. If there is
any irregularity, turn the power off again and check that the lamp is properly
installed.
6.3 Replacing the Fuse
Warning: Unplug the power cable before removing the fuse cover to replace the
fuse. Removing the fuse cover with the power cable plugged in can cause
electric shock.
Warning: Use only attaching fuses (250 v, 1A). Using other fuses may cause a
fire in the event that the instrument fails.
