Cautions for the viewer
Caution
• If your eyes feel fatigued or uncomfortable when viewing 3D images, stop
viewing immediately. Continuing to view the 3D images could cause you to
feel unwell.
• When viewing 3D images be sure to always wear 3D Glasses. Do not attempt
to view 3D images without 3D Glasses. Doing so could cause you to feel
unwell.
• Do not place any breakable or fragile objects around you when using 3D
Glasses.
3D images may cause you to move your body involuntarily, resulting in
damage to nearby items or personal injury.
• Only wear 3D Glasses when viewing 3D images. Do not move around while
wearing 3D Glasses. Your vision may appear darker than normal, causing you
to fall or injure yourself.
• View from in front of the screen.
Viewing 3D images at an angle reduces the 3D effect and may cause you to
feel unwell due to unintended color changes.
• If using 3D Glasses in a room with fluorescent or LED lighting, you may see
flashing or flickering throughout the room. If this should occur, reduce the
lighting until the flickering goes away or turn off the lights completely when
viewing 3D images. This flickering could trigger seizures or fainting for some
individuals. If you begin to feel uncomfortable or unwell at any time when
viewing 3D images, stop immediately.
• Stay at least three times the height of the screen away from the screen when
viewing 3D images.
The recommended viewing distance for an 80-inch screen is at least 3 meters,
and at least 3.6 meters for a 100-inch screen. Sitting or standing any closer
than the recommended viewing distance may result in eye fatigue.
• When viewing 3D images, we recommend using a screen size smaller than
120 inches.
If the screen size is too large, you may experience eyestrain or nausea due to
the content, viewing environment, your physical condition, and so on.
Caution
You should not use 3D Glasses if you are sensitive to light, have a heart
condition, or are unwell. Doing so could aggravate your pre-existing conditions.
Cautions regarding the viewing age (for children)
Caution
• The minimum recommended age to view 3D images is six years old.
• Children under the age of six are still developing and viewing 3D images may
cause complications. Consult your doctor if you have any concerns.
• Children viewing 3D images through 3D Glasses should always be
accompanied by an adult.
It is often difficult to tell when a child is feeling tired or uncomfortable,
which could result in them feeling suddenly unwell. Always check that
children in your care are not experiencing any eye fatigue during viewing.
Projecting Without a Computer (PC Free)

Maintenance
This chapter provides information on maintenance procedures to ensure the best level of performance from the projector for a long time to come.
Cleaning
You should clean the projector if it becomes dirty or if the quality of
projected images starts to deteriorate.
Caution
Turn off the projector's power before cleaning. Otherwise, it could cause an
electric shock.
98
Attention
Do not rub the lens with harsh materials or subject the lens to shocks as it
can easily become damaged.
Cleaning the 3D Glasses
Clean the lenses of the glasses by wiping them gently with a soft cloth.
Cleaning the Projector's Surface
Clean the projector's surface by wiping it gently with a soft cloth.
If the projector is particularly dirty, moisten the cloth with water containing
a small amount of neutral detergent, and then firmly wring the cloth dry
before using it to wipe the projector's surface.
Attention
Attention
Do not use volatile substances such as wax, alcohol, or thinner to clean the
projector's surface. The quality of the case may change or become discolored.
• Do not rub the lenses of the glasses with harsh materials or handle them too
roughly as they can easily become damaged.
• When maintenance is necessary, disconnect the USB Charging Adapter from
the electrical outlet, and check that all cables have been disconnected.
Cleaning the Lens
Use a commercially available cloth for cleaning glasses to gently wipe the
lens.
Warning
Do not use sprays that contain flammable gas to remove dust and lint from the
lens. The projector may catch fire due to the high internal temperature of the
lamp.
Cleaning the Air Filter
Clean the air filter and the air intake vent when the following message is
displayed.
"The projector is overheating. Make sure nothing is blocking the air vent,
and clean or replace the air filter."
Cleaning
99
Attention
• If dust collects on the air filter, it can cause the internal temperature of the
projector to rise, and this can lead to problems with operation and shorten
the optical engine's service life. Clean the air filter immediately when the
message is displayed.
• Do not rinse the air filter in water. Do not use detergents or solvents.
a
• If a message is frequently displayed, even after cleaning, it is time to
replace the air filter. Replace it with a new air filter.
s "Replacing the Air Filter" p.103
• It is recommended that you clean these parts at least once every
three months. Clean them more often than this if using the projector
in a particularly dusty environment.
Replacing Consumables
This section explains how to replace the lamp and the air filter.
Replacing the Lamp
Lamp replacement period
It is time to replace the lamp when:
• The following message is displayed.
"Time to replace the lamp. Please contact your Epson projector reseller or
visit www.epson.com to purchase."
The message is displayed for 30 seconds.
• The lamp indicator flashes orange.
100
Attention
• The lamp replacement message is set to appear after the following time
periods in order to maintain the initial brightness and quality of the projected
images.
For EB-W16
When using Power Consumption continually at Normal: About 3900 hours
When using Power Consumption continually at ECO: About 4900 hours
s Settings - Power Consumption p.77
For EH-TW550/EH-TW510
When using Power Consumption continually at High: About 3,900 hours
When using Power Consumption continually at Low: About 4,900 hours
s Settings - Power Consumption p.77
• If you continue to use the lamp after the replacement period has passed, the
possibility that the lamp may explode increases. When the lamp replacement
message appears, replace the lamp with a new one as soon as possible, even if
it is still working.
• Do not repeatedly turn off the power and immediately back on. Turning the
power on and off frequently may shorten the lamp's operating life.
• Depending on the characteristics of the lamp and the way it has been used,
the lamp may become darker or stop working before the lamp warning
message appears. You should always have a spare lamp unit ready in case it is
needed.
How to replace the lamp
• The projected image gets darker or starts to deteriorate.
The lamp can be replaced even when the projector is suspended from a
ceiling.
Replacing Consumables
101
Warning
• When replacing the lamp because it has stopped illuminating, there is a
possibility that the lamp may be broken. If replacing the lamp of a projector
which has been installed on the ceiling, you should always assume that the
lamp is cracked, and you should stand to the side of the lamp cover, not
underneath it. Remove the lamp cover gently. Be careful when removing the
lamp cover as shards of glass may fall out and could cause an injury. If any
shards of glass get into your eyes or mouth, contact your local physician
immediately.
• Never disassemble or remodel the lamp. If a modified or disassembled lamp
is installed in the projector and used, it could cause a fire, electric shock, or
an accident.
Caution
• Wait until the lamp has cooled down sufficiently before removing the lamp
cover. If the lamp is still hot, burns or other injuries may result. It takes
about one hour after the power has been turned off for the lamp to be cool
enough.
a
After you turn off the projector's power and the confirmation
buzzer beeps twice, disconnect the power cord.
b
Wait until the lamp has sufficiently cooled down, and then remove
the lamp cover at the top of the projector.
Loosen the Lamp cover fixing screw with the screwdriver supplied
with the new lamp unit or a cross-head screwdriver. Then slide the
lamp cover straight forward and lift it to remove.
c
Loosen the two lamp fixing screws.

This section briefly explains the difficult terms that are not explained in the text of this guide. For details, refer to other commercially available publications.
Aspect Ratio
The ratio between an image's length and its height. Screens with a horizontal:vertical ratio of 16:9, such as HDTV screens, are known as wide screens.
SDTV and general computer displays have an aspect ratio of 4:3.
Component Video
A method that separates the video signal into a luminance component (Y), and a blue minus luminance (Cb or Pb) and a red minus luminance (Cr or
Pr).
Composite video
A method that combines the video signal into a luminance component and a color component for transmission down a single cable.
Contrast
The relative brightness of the light and dark areas of an image can be increased or decreased to make text and graphics stand out more clearly, or to
make them appear softer. Adjusting this particular property of an image is called contrast adjustment.
HDCP
HDCP is an abbreviation for High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection. It is used to prevent illegal copying and protect copyrights by encrypting
digital signals sent over DVI and HDMI ports. Because the HDMI port and DisplayPort on this projector supports HDCP, it can project digital images
protected by HDCP technology. However, the projector may not be able to project images protected with updated or revised versions of HDCP
encryption.
HDTV
An abbreviation for High-Definition Television that refers to high-definition systems which satisfy the following conditions.
• Vertical resolution of 720p or 1080i or greater (p = Progressiveg, i = Interlaceg)
• Screen aspect ratiog of 16:9
Interlace
Transmits information needed to create one screen by sending every other line, starting from the top of the image and working down to the bottom.
Images are more likely to flicker because one frame is displayed every other line.
Progressive
Projects information to create one screen at a time, displaying the image for one frame. Even though the number of scan lines is the same, the amount
of flicker in images decreases because the volume of information has doubled compared with an interlace system.
Refresh Rate
The light-emitting element of a display maintains the same luminosity and color for an extremely short time. Because of this, the image must be
scanned many times per second to refresh the light-emitting element. The number of refresh operations per second is called the Refresh rate and is
expressed in hertz (Hz).
SDTV
An abbreviation for Standard Definition Television that refers to standard television systems which do not satisfy the conditions for HDTVg HighDefinition Television.
sRGB
An international standard for color intervals that was formulated so that colors that are reproduced by video equipment can be handled easily by
computer operating systems (OS) and the Internet. If the connected source has an sRGB mode, set both the projector and the connected signal source
to sRGB.
SVGA
A screen size standard with a resolution of 800 (horizontal) x 600 (vertical) dots.
SXGA
A screen size standard with a resolution of 1,280 (horizontal) x 1,024 (vertical) dots.
Sync.
The signals output from computers have a specific frequency. If the projector frequency does not match this frequency, the resulting images are not of
a good quality. The process of matching the phases of these signals (the relative position of the crests and the troughs in the signal) is called
Synchronization. If the signals are not synchronized, flickering, blurriness, and horizontal interference occur.
Glossary
119
Tracking
The signals output from computers have a specific frequency. If the projector frequency does not match this frequency, the resulting images are not of
a good quality. The process of matching the frequency of these signals (the number of crests in the signal) is called Tracking. If Tracking is not carried
out correctly, wide vertical stripes appear in the signal.
VGA
A screen size standard with a resolution of 640 (horizontal) x 480 (vertical) dots.
XGA
A screen size standard with a resolution of 1,024 (horizontal) x 768 (vertical) dots.
