4 Setting up the projector
◆ Setting up your projector
Install the screen perpendicularly to the projector. If the screen can not be installed in such a way, adjust the projection angle of the projector as
shown below.
• Install the screen and projector so that the projector’s lens is placed at the horizontal position of the screen center.
• Do not install the screen where it is exposed to direct sunlight or lighting. Light directly reflecting on the screen makes the projected images
whitish and hard to view.
◆ Basic projector setup
Determine the distance from the screen to the projector according to the size of the images to be projected (see page 9).

• Do not place this projector on a carpet or blanket because the exhaust vent and the intake vent on the bottom surface will be blocked and the
inside of the projector will overheat, causing a breakdown or fire.
• Depending on the installation conditions, warm air that is emitted from the exhaust vents may flow into the intake vent, causing the projector
to display “Over Temperature” and then stop projecting images. If this happens, clear the area around the exhaust vent.
◆ Adjusting the projection angle
This projector is provided with three feet for adjusting the projection angle on the bottom surface. Adjust the projection angle depending on
the position of the projector.
For the best projection, project images on a flat screen installed at 90 degrees to the floor. If necessary, tilt the projector using the adjustment
feet on the bottom of the projector.

11 Ceiling installation
◆ Viewing ceiling mounted projector images
To view images projected by the ceiling mounted projector from the front:
When the projector is installed on the ceiling, the special ceiling mount bracket, which is commercially available, is required. Be sure to ask a
certified installation specialist for installation of the projector. Contact your dealer for details.
• Yamaha assumes no responsibilities for any damage caused by use of other manufacturer s ceiling bracket and by inadequate installation
conditions even within the warranty period.
• When installing the projector on the ceiling, set LOCATION in the SETUP menu to FRONT / CEILING.
• Ask your installation specialist to provide a breaker. When you do not use the projector, be sure to shut down the main power by the breaker.
• When the projector is installed on the ceiling, projected images may appear darker than those projected when the projector is installed on the
floor. This is not a malfunction.
• Do not install the projector where the exhaust vents are exposed to air emitted by an air conditioning. Such installation may cause a
breakdown.
• Do not install the projector near a fire alarm because it emits hot air from its exhaust vents.

12 Replacing the lamp
This projector is equipped with a lamp to project images. This lamp is a consumable, so it may burn out or its brightness may decrease during
use. If this happens, replace the lamp with a new one as soon as possible. Be sure to replace the lamp with a new, commercially available lamp
that is exclusive to this projector. Contact your dealer for purchase of the lamp.
Warning
• Be careful not to drop the lamp screws into the projector. Do not put a metal piece or flammable object into the projector.
Using the projector with any foreign object present inside may result in electric shock or fire. If you can’t remove the foreign
object from the inside, contact your dealer for removal.
• Be sure to install the lamp securely. If the lamp is not installed properly, it will not illuminate. Improper installation may also
result in fire.
• Do not shake the removed lamp or lift it above your face. You may injure your eye by flying or falling glass fragments.
• Do not replace the lamp immediately after use because the lamp cover is very hot. You may get burned. Turn off the power
using the STANDBY/ON button. After the lamp goes out, wait about two minutes until the intake and exhaust fans for cooling
the lamp stop rotating. Then unplug the power cable, and wait at least one hour to allow the lamp to cool down enough to
the touch.
◆ Interval of lamp replacement
The recommended interval of lamp replacement is about 4000 hours*1 *2 of consecutive use. Such interval differs depending on the operating
environment and may be shorter than 4000 hours*1 *2. Decrease in luminescence and/or color brightness indicates that the lamp needs to be
replaced. When the lamp operation time exceeds 3000 hours*1, the indicator will blink alternately between green and red (while the lamp is lit;
when the lamp is not lit, the indicator will be lit red only) and the lamp replacement message will appear on the screen for one minute
everytime the lamp is turned on. When the lamp has been used for about 3800 hours*1, the replacement message (LAMP EXCHANGE) will
appear on the screen for one minute every 20 hours*1 thereafter.
When the lamp operation time exceeds 4000 hours*1 *2, the projector automatically shuts off and can not be
used until the lamp is replaced and the lamp operation time is reset.
*1: When LAMP MODE in the SETUP menu is set to CINEMA. When it is set to BRIGHT, this duration will be decreased.
*2: When LAMP MODE is set to BRIGHT, this duration will be decreased to 2000 hours.
Caution
• Do not remove the lamp for any purpose other than replacement. Unnecessary removal of the lamp may result in a
breakdown.
• This projector uses a high-pressure mercury lamp as the light source. The high-pressure mercury lamp may explode or fail
to illuminate permanently because of an impact, scratch, or deterioration through use. The period of time until explosion or
permanent failure to illuminate varies considerably from lamp to lamp, depending on operation conditions. Therefore, the
lamp may explode soon after the start of use.
• The possibility of explosion of the lamp increases if you use it beyond its replacement period. When the lamp replacement
warning appears, replace it with a new one immediately, even if the lamp is still lighting normally.
• When the high-pressure mercury lamp explodes, glass fragments will scatter inside or outside the lamp box and the gas
charged inside the lamp will diffuse inside or outside the projector. The gas inside the lamp contains mercury. Be careful not
to breathe it and avoid it from entering your eye or mouth. If you should breathe it or if it should enter your eye or mouth, see
a doctor immediately.
• In the event that the high-pressure mercury lamp has exploded, glass fragments may have been scattered inside the
projector. Ask your dealer to replace the lamp and to inspect the inside of the projector. When you clean or replace the lamp
by yourself, be sure to hold the handle of the lamp. You may get injured by glass fragments.
• Do not replace the lamp with the projector installed on the ceiling. Glass fragments may fall from the projector, entering your
eye or mouth and causing injury.
• When placing the projector upside down to replace the lamp or conduct maintenance, be sure that the projector is securely
placed before working with it.
