-W
hen the projector is connected with a device having DVI connector, use a
DVI to HDMITM cable to connect with the HDMITM input (&Setup Guide).
• The HDMITM cables might come off easily due to the lack of a mechanical lock
on the cables and connectors. It is recommended to fasten the cables to the
projector to prevent the cables from coming off (&15, 16).

item in the SERVICE menu of the OPTION menu (72) .
• The remote control signal reflected in the screen or the like may be available.
If it is difficult to send the signal to the sensor directly, attempt to make the
signal reflect.
• The remote control uses infrared light to send signals to the projector (Class 1
LED), so be sure to use the remote control in an area free from obstacles that
could block the remote control’s signal to the projector.
• The remote control may not work correctly if strong light (such as direct
sun light) or light from an extremely close range (such as from an inverter
fluorescent lamp) shines on the remote sensor of the projector. Adjust the
position of projector avoiding those lights.

Replacing the lamp
A lamp has finite product life. Using the lamp for long periods of time could cause the
pictures darker or the color tone poor. Note that each lamp has a different lifetime, and
some may burst or burn out soon after you start using them.
Preparation of a new lamp and early replacement are recommended. To prepare a
new lamp, make contact with your dealer and tell the lamp type number.

Lamp warning
HIGH VOLTAGE
HIGH TEMPERATURE
HIGH PRESSURE
WARNING ►The projector uses a high-pressure mercury glass lamp. The lamp
can break with a loud bang, or burn out, if jolted or scratched, handled while hot, or
worn over time. Note that each lamp has a different lifetime, and some may burst or
burn out soon after you start using them. In addition, if the bulb bursts, it is possible
for shards of glass to fly into the lamp housing, and for gas containing mercury and
dust containing fine particles of glass to escape from the projector’s vent holes.
►About disposal of a lamp: This product contains a mercury lamp; do not put
it in a trash. Dispose of it in accordance with environmental laws.
• For lamp recycling, go to www.lamprecycle.org (in the US).
• For product disposal, consult your local government agency
or www.eiae.org (in the US) or www.epsc.ca (in Canada).
For more information, call your dealer.

Operating Guide
• If the lamp should break (it will make a loud bang when it does),
unplug the power cord from the outlet, and make sure to request a
replacement lamp from your local dealer. Note that shards of glass
could damage the projector’s internals, or cause injury during handling,
so please do not try to clean the projector or replace the lamp yourself.
• If the lamp should break (it will make a loud bang when it does), ventilate the
room well, and make sure not to inhale the gas or fine particles that come out
from the projector's vent holes, and not to get them into your eyes or mouth.
• Before replacing the lamp, turn the projector off and unplug the power
cord, then wait at least 45 minutes for the lamp to cool sufficiently.
Handling the lamp while hot can cause burns, as well as damaging the lamp.
• Never unscrew except the appointed (marked by an arrow) screws.
• Do not open the lamp cover while the projector is suspended from
a ceiling. This is dangerous, since if the lamp’s bulb has broken, the
shards will fall out when the cover is opened. In addition, working in
high places is dangerous, so ask your local dealer to have the lamp
replaced even if the bulb is not broken.
• Do not use the projector with the lamp cover removed. At the lamp
replacing, make sure that the screws are screwed in firmly. Loose
screws could result in damage or injury.
• Use only the lamp of the specified type. Use of a lamp that does not
meet the lamp specifications for this model could cause a fire, damage or
shorten the life of this product.
• If the lamp breaks soon after the first time it is used, it is possible
that there are electrical problems elsewhere besides the lamp. If this
happens, consult your local dealer or a service representative.
• Handle with care: jolting or scratching could cause the lamp bulb to burst during use.
• Using the lamp for long periods of time, could cause it dark, not to light up or to burst.
When the pictures appear dark, or when the color tone is poor, please replace the
lamp as soon as possible. Do not use old (used) lamps; this is a cause of breakage.

Disconnect the LAN cable and check that the
projector is working properly.
If this phenomenon occurs after connecting to the network,
there may be a loop between two Ethernet switching hubs
within the network, as explained below.
-There are two or more Ethernet switching hubs in a
network.
- Two of the hubs are doubly connected by LAN cables.
- This double connection forms a loop between the two
hubs.
Such a loop may have an adverse effect on the projector as
well as the other network devices.
Check the network connection and remove the loop by
disconnecting the LAN cables such that there is only one
connecting cable between two hubs.

NOTE • Although bright spots or dark spots may appear on the screen, this
is a unique characteristic of liquid crystal displays, and it does not constitute or
imply a machine defect.
