(40˚C)
41˚F
(5˚C)
For minimal servicing and to maintain high image quality, SHARP recommends
that this projector be installed in an area free from humidity, dust and cigarette
smoke. When the projector is subjected to these environments, the lens and
filter must be cleaned more often. Periodically the filter should be replaced
and the projector should be cleaned internally. As long as the projector is
properly maintained in this manner, use in these environments will not reduce
the overall operation life. Please note that all internal cleaning must be
performed by an Authorized Sharp Industrial LCD Products Dealer or Service
Center.
Notes on Operation
• The exhaust vent, the lamp cage cover and adjacent areas may be extremely
hot during projector operation. To prevent injury, do not touch these areas until
they have sufficiently cooled.
• Allow at least 4 inches (10 cm) of space between the cooling fan (exhaust
vent) and the nearest wall or obstruction.
• If the cooling fan becomes obstructed, a protection device will automatically
turn off the projector lamp. This does not indicate a malfunction. Remove the
projector power cord from the wall outlet and wait at least 10 minutes. Then
turn on the power by plugging the power cord back in. This will return the
projector to the normal operating condition.
Temperature Monitor Function
If the projector starts to overheat due to setup problems or a dirty air filter, “TEMP.”
and “ ” will flash in the lower-left corner of the picture. If the temperature continues
to rise, the lamp will turn off, the TEMPERATURE WARNING indicator on the
projector will flash, and after a 90-second cooling-off period the power will shut
off. Refer to “Lamp/Maintenance Indicators” on page 38, for details.
• The cooling fan regulates the internal temperature, and its performance is
automatically controlled. The sound of the fan may change during projector operation
due to changes in the fan speed.
Lamp Monitor Function
When the projector is turned on after the lamp has been used for 1,400 hours,
“LAMP” and “ ” will flash in the lower-left corner of the picture to advise you to
replace the lamp. See pages 39 and 40 for lamp replacement. If the lamp has
been used for 1,500 hours, the projector power will automatically turn off and the
projector will enter standby mode. Refer to “Lamp/Maintenance Indicators” on
page 38, for details.

• If the MAIN POWER switch on the “Power” remote control is left on
for more than 10 minutes without operation, the power will
automatically turn off. To turn the power back on, press any button
on the remote control for more than one second.
Setting Up the Projector and Screen
Position the projector perpendicular to the screen with all feet flat and level to achieve optimal image.
Move the projector forward or backward if the edges of the image are distorted.
• The projector lens should be centered in the middle of the screen. If the lens center is not perpendicular to the screen, the
image will be distorted, making viewing difficult.
• Position the screen so that it is not in direct sunlight or room light. Light falling directly onto the screen washes out colors,
making viewing difficult. Close the curtains and dim the lights when setting up the screen in a sunny or bright room.
• A polarizing screen cannot be used with this projector.

Guide to Effective Presentations
Electronic presentations are one of the most effective
tools presenters can use to persuade an audience.
There are several ways to enhance your presentation
and maximize your effectiveness. The following are
guidelines to help you create and deliver a dynamic
presentation.
a. Types of Presentations
Computer Presentations
• To present basic information such as graphs, spreadsheets,
documents and images, use word processing and spreadsheet
applications.
• To convey more complex information and create more dynamic
presentations which allow you to control the pace of your delivery,
utilize software such as Astound®, Freelance®, Persuasion® or
PowerPoint®.
• For high-end multimedia and interactive presentations, use software
such as Macromedia Director®.

Director® are trademarks of their respective companies.
Video Presentations
Use of video equipment, such as a VCR, DVD player and LD player,
can be effective for delivering instructional or illustrative information
that is difficult to present.
Digital Cameras and Personal Digital Assistants
(PDAs)
For highly compact and portable presentations, still cameras, digital
video cameras, document cameras and PDAs are ideal for transferring
data without cumbersome conversions.
Multimedia Presentations
You can integrate all of the above methods for a full multimedia
presentation including video, audio, computer applications and World
Wide Web information.
Wireless Presentations
Use any IrDA/IrTran-P compatible source such as a laptop, digital
camera or PDA to project still images quickly and effortlessly without
the use of cables.
b. Creative Presentations
Oftentimes presenters do not take advantage of the many
subtle ways they can manipulate their electronic slides to more
effectively persuade the audience.
Appendix
Color has a great effect on the audience during a presentation.
When used correctly and legibly, studies show that
background & foreground colors establish an emotional tone
for a presentation, help viewers understand and retain
information, and influence an audience to take a desired
course of action.
Color Considerations
Yellow
on Black
E-47
• Choose legible colors.
• Text and graphics colors need sufficient contrast.
• Use darker colors for the background since a lighter background
can create uncomfortable glare. (Yellow on black creates an ideal
contrast.)
Guide to Effective Presentations
• Background colors can subconsciously affect the audience:
Red
Blue
Red—increases viewers’ pulse and breathing and
encourages risk taking but can also be associated with
financial loss.
Blue—has a calming and conservative affect on the
audience but can also create boredom among corporate
audiences that are often inundated with this background
color.
Green—stimulates interaction.
Green
Black
Black—conveys finality and certainty. Use it as a transitional
color between slides when moving from one idea to another.
• Foreground colors create a major impact on how well an
audience understands and remembers a message.
• Use one or two bright colors for emphasis.
• Highlight important messages.
• The eye has a difficult time reading certain coloured text on
certain colored backgrounds. For example, text and
background colors in red and green, and blue and black
make for difficult viewing.
• Colorblind individuals may find it difficult to distinguish
between red and green, brown and green, and purple and
blue. Avoid using these colors together.
Fonts

presentatio
small, too
that are too
• One of the most common mistakes in any type of
presentation visual is the selection of type fonts that are too
small, too thin, or too difficult to read.
• If you are not sure how well a given font will read on a screen
at various sizes, try this: Draw a 6 8 box on a piece of
paper and print out several lines of text inside the box with
your computer printer at 300 or 600 dpi resolution. Vary the
sizes of text to simulate headline, body and text call-outs
for any charts or graphs. Hold the printout at arm’s length.
This is how your text will look on a 4 (1.2 meters)-wide
screen at 10 (3 meters), on a 7.5 (2.3 meters)-wide screen
at 20 (6.1 meters) and a 12 (3.7 meters)-wide screen at
30 (9.1 meters). If you cannot read the text easily, you
should put less copy on your visuals or use larger typefaces.
• Design your visuals so that they are visible by the viewer in
the last row.
• Nothing will ruin your presentation faster than misspelled
words. Take the time to proofread and edit your work before
your visuals become a permanent part of your presentation.
• Mixed case text is easier to read than text which is displayed
in capital letters.
Appendix
Sans-serif
Serif
• Another important attribute of fonts is whether any particular
face is serif or sans-serif. Serifs are small, usually horizontal
cross strokes that are added to the end of a letter’s main
strokes. Because of their ability to coax the eye along the
line of type, fonts with serifs are generally acknowledged to
be more readable.

c. Set-Up
When giving a presentation, you need to set the stage both
figuratively and literally for success. The way you set up a
presentation room will have a great impact on the audience’s
perception of you and your message. By manipulating the
placement and use of the following tools, you will improve the
impact of your presentation.
Lighting—Good lighting is an important component of a
successful presentation. You should strive to create an unequal
distribution of light. An audience should always see as much
of the presenter’s face as possible, so most of the light should
be focused on you. Because it is important for you to be able
to read the audience’s faces and body language, some light
should be shed upon them. However, no light should shine
on the screen.
Stage— When presenting on the same level surface that your
audience is on, most people can only see the top one-third of
your body. Therefore, it is recommended that when giving a
presentation to an audience of 25 or more, you stand on a
stage or platform. As more of your body is visible, the easier
it is to communicate with an audience.
Podiums—The best presenters avoid podiums because they
hide 75% of the body and restrict movement. However, many
people feel more comfortable with a podium to hold their notes
and hide their discomfort. If you must use a podium, angle it
at 45 degrees to the audience so that you are not completely
hidden.
Visuals—It is imperative that you make sure your visuals are
large enough and projected far enough for the audience to
see. Eight times the height of an image is the optimal viewing
distance to read 24 point type. The bottom of a screen should
be at least 6 (1.8 meters) above the floor.
Screen—The screen should always be in the center of the
room so that all audience members can see it. Because people
read from left to right, you should always stand to the
audience’s left when discussing visuals.
Appendix
Seating—Arrange seating according to the dynamics of your
presentation. If the presentation is more than half-a-day, use
classroom style seating—a chair and a desk. If you would
like to encourage audience interaction, use chevron seating,
angling the chairs into a “V” shape. When you have a very
small audience, a “U” shaped arrangement will increase
interchange.
E-49
Guide to Effective Presentations
d. Rehearsing & Delivery
• The best time to rehearse is the day or evening before,
not a couple of hours before, and the best place to
rehearse is in the actual room. Rehearsing a speech
in a small office is not the same as standing up in
front of 100 people in a hotel ballroom or classroom.
• Due to varying processor speeds of computers,
practice your slide transitions for proper timing.
• Whenever possible, set up your equipment well in
advance to allow adequate time to resolve any
unexpected issues such as lighting, power, seating
and audio.
• Thoroughly check every piece of equipment you bring
along. Make sure you have fresh batteries in your
remote controls and laptop computer. Fully charge
your computer’s battery before the presentation and
connect your AC adaptor for added safety.
• Make sure you are completely familiar with the control
panel on your projector and remote controls.
• If you are using a microphone, check it out before
hand and walk around to see where you might have
problems with feedback. Avoid standing in these
problem areas during your presentation.
e. Presentation Tips
• Before beginning, visualize yourself delivering an
outstanding presentation.
• Know your speech, memorizing at least the first three
minutes of your presentation will allow you to focus
on your rhythm and pacing.
• Speak to early arrivals to help you build a rapport
with the audience and make you feel more
comfortable.
• Do not be overly dependent on your visuals by reciting
what your audience is already reading. Know your
material well enough to be able to deliver the
presentation with ease. Use your visuals to emphasize
keypoints.
• Be sure to project your voice clearly and use eye
contact to maintain audience attention.
• Do not wait until half way through your presentation
to get your point across. If you wait and try to create a
“build-up”, you may lose some of your audience along
the way.
• Keep your audience’s attention. As most people only
focus for 15 to 20 minutes during a one hour
presentation, it is important to recapture their attention
periodically. Use phrases like, “This is critical to my
point” or “This is absolutely fundamental” to remind
them you are saying something they need to hear.
