Preparing the projector for operation
Getting ready for projection
Adjusting the angle of projection
1. Connect the power cord provided to the projector.
2. Connect the power cord to the wall power outlet.
3. Remove the lens cap.
For the best result, project onto a flat screen with a 90
degree angle to the floor. If necessary, tilt the projector
by adjusting two foot adjustments on the bottom of the
projector.
Warning:
• Do not look directly into the lens when projector is
“ON”.
• The lens cap is for protecting the lens. If you leave
the power on with the cap on, the cap may be warped.
Please remove the lens cap when you turn the power
on.
• This projector is equipped with the power cords for
both U.S. and Europe. Use the appropriate power
cord for your country.
• A three-pin grounding type power plug is used with
the projector. Do not remove the grounding pin on
the power plug. If you are unable to insert the plug
into the outlet, contact your electrician to replace
your A/C outlet.
• The supplied power cord for U.S. is used for 120V
only. Never connect to any outlet or power supply
having a different voltage or frequency. If you
connect to the power supply having a different
voltage, please use the appropriate power cord.
• Use 100-240V AC 50/60Hz correct voltage otherwise it may lead to fire or electric shock.
• Do not place any objects on the power cord, and keep
the projector away from heat sources to avoid breaking the power cord. A broken power cord can cause
fire or electric shock.
• Do not revise or alter the power cord otherwise it
may cause fire or electric shock.
Contact your dealer if the cord is broken.
Caution:
• Plug in firmly and unplug by holding the plug, not
by pulling the cable out.

About color temperature
There are different kinds of white color. Color temperature is
a way to show the differences. The white, which temperature
is low, becomes raddish white. When the color temperature is
higher, the white becomes more bluish. This projector sets
this color temperature by changing the numbers of contrast
blue and red.
To set the color temperature high:
Set the contrast B (Blue) number high, and the contrast R
(Red) number low.
To set the color temperature low:
Set the contrast B (Blue) number low, and the contrast R
(Red) number high.
Although this projector sets proper signal systems
automatically for the image signal from personal
computers, it cannot be applied to some of personal
computers. In this case, press the AUTO POSITION
button. If the images are still not projected correctly,
use the MENU display to adjust the projected images.
