Safety Precautions
Lamp Precautions
Warning
Caution
●Lamp removal
●Lamp replacement
Never remove the lamp from the
projector immediately after using
it. The lamp becomes very hot
during use, creating the risk of
burn injury. Turn off the projector.
After the POWER/STANDBY
indicator changes to steady (not
flashing) amber, unplug the
projector from the power outlet.
Next, wait for at least 60 minutes
before removing the lamp.
Before replacing the lamp, be
sure to turn off the projector and
unplug it from the power outlet.
Failure to do so creates the risk
of electric shock.
• Take care when replacing a
broken lamp.
A broken lamp can cause
glass fragments to be
scattered inside the lamp
housing. Glass inside of the
lamp housing may also be
discharged from the projector’s
vent exhaust ports. Gas inside
of the lamp includes mercury,
so be sure to ventilate the
area whenever the lamp
breaks. Should you accidentally
inhale gas fumes or should
gas fumes get into your eyes,
immediately contact a
physician.
●Specified lamp type
Use only the lamp type that is
specified for this projector. Use of
any other type of lamp creates
the risk of fire and breakdown.
●Broken lamp
Never attempt to replace a
broken lamp on your own. The
projector uses a mercury lamp
with high internal pressure as its
light source. Should the lamp
break, be sure to contact your
original dealer or authorized
CASIO service center to request
replacement. Attempting to
replace a broken lamp on your
own creates the risk of personal
injury due to broken glass or
dispersed mercury.

Operating Precautions
Operating Precautions
Lamp Handling Precautions
Caution!
Continued use of a lamp that has passed its lamp life increases the risk of
the lamp rupturing. Replace the lamp with a new one as soon as possible
after the replacement message appears.
● Never touch the glass of the lamp with your fingers. Doing so can damage the
lamp and shorten its life.
● The light source lamp is a consumable item. The average life of a lamp is
●
●
●
●
approximately 2000 hours. After 2000 hours, a message appears to alert you to
the need of lamp replacement. However, note that the characteristics of a
particular lamp or lamp operating conditions can cause the lamp to start to go
dim or even fail before the message appears.
Lamps are guaranteed for 90 days from the date of purchase or for 500 hours
operation, whichever comes first.
A mercury lamp with high internal pressure is used as the light source. A lamp
that is weakened by impact, damage, or expiration of its lamp life may explode or
fail to light if exposed to loud noise. Note that the performance of the lamp differs
greatly from lamp to lamp, and due to conditions under which a lamp is used.
The replacement message appears and the LAMP indicator flashes red after the
lamp life is reached. When this happens, replace the lamp using the instructions
provided in this User’s Guide.
If the lamp continues to be used after its lamp life is reached, after 100 hours
the projector will enter a cool down state and then go into standby. The
projector will not turn on again until you replace the lamp.
Lamp Replacement Precautions
● When the lamp life is reached, the message “It is time to replace the lamp.
●
●
●
●
Use the procedure in the User’s Guide to replace the lamp as soon as
possible.” appears on the display for about 10 seconds, and the LAMP indicator
starts to flash red in one-second intervals. Replace the lamp as soon as
possible after the message appears or the LAMP indicator flashes.
Replace the lamp with a special YL-30 replacement lamp, which should be
available from your original dealer.
Turn off the projector. After the POWER/STANDBY indicator changes to steady
(not flashing) amber, unplug the projector from the power outlet. Next, wait for
at least 60 minutes before removing the lamp. Note that the lamp cartridge
becomes very hot during normal use and during standby. Handling it when hot
creates the risk of burn injury.
The lamp contains mercury. Dispose of old lamps in accordance with the rules
and regulations of your local jurisdiction.
When replacing the lamp, use the special screwdriver that comes with the YL-30
replacement lamp.

Getting Ready
This section explains how to set up the projector to get it ready for use, and how to connect
it to an input source (computer or video device).
It also includes information about how to turn on the projector, how to select the display
language the first time you turn it on, and precautions you need to keep in mind concerning
the power supply.
Setting Up the Projector
This projector is designed for tabletop use only. Place the projector onto a table, desk, or
stand that is level and firm, making sure you allow enough room around it.
z The following illustrations show how the projector should be oriented for optimum
projection relative to the screen.
Viewed from Above
Viewed from the Side
Screen
Screen
The center of the projector’s lens
should be aligned with the horizontal
center of the screen.
Make sure the projector is at a right
angle to the screen.
z You can place the projector on a surface that is angled up to 30 degrees up or down
during use.Angling the projector more than 30 degrees up or down can cause rupture or
premature aging of the projector's lamp,or malfunction of the projector.
z The above setup enables proper projection without any image correction. If the projector
is at an angle to the screen, a phenomenon called “keystoning” will occur, which causes
the sides, and/or the top and bottom of the image to be different lengths. The projector
comes with a keystone correction feature that automatically corrects the image. See
“Keystone Correction (KEYSTONE)” on page 50 for information about keystone correction.

Projection Operations
Full-screen Display of an RGB Image
The projector outputs images using XGA (1024 pixels × 768 pixels) video resolution. When
the input signal from the computer connected to the projector is not an XGA signal, “Resize
Image To Fit” automatically enlarges or reduces the image so it matches the projector’s video
resolution and fills the entire screen. The following shows how different input signals from a
computer are adjusted during projection.
Input Signal Example
Projected Image
800 × 600
1024 × 768
1280 × 1024
z Resizing of an input image by “Resize Image To Fit” can call coarsening of the image or
can cause part of the image to be cut off. If this happens, try turning off “Resize Image
To Fit”. See “Screen Settings J Resize Image to Fit” on page 81 for more information.
49
Projection Operations
Keystone Correction (KEYSTONE)
When the projector is at an angle to the screen it is projecting on, the projected image may
have different length left and right edges, or top and bottom edges. This phenomenon is
called, “keystoning”. This projector comes with functions for automatic as well as manual
keystone correction, which provides a regularly shaped projected image.
z Keystone correction (auto or manual) can cause dustortion of the projected image. If this
happens try moving the screen and/or projector so they are oriented close to the
configuration shown under “Setting Up the Projector” on page 28.
z Keystone correction can cause the corrected image to be smaller than the original
(uncorrected) image.
Automatic Keystone Correction
Automatic keystone correction correct the image to counteract the effects of vertical
keystoning.
Performing auto keystone correction causes the message “Auto Keystone Corrected.” to appear
in the center of the projected image.
50
Projection Operations
z Note that auto keystone correction is possible within a range of about –30 degrees to
+30 degrees.
Screen
Up to about 30 degrees
Up to about 30 degrees
z Auto keystone correction is performed by detecting the elevation angle of the projector.
This means that the surface you are projecting onto needs to be standing straight up. If
the surface you are projecting onto is not straight, use manual keystone correction to
correct the image.
z You can turn auto keystone correction on or off as required. For details, see “Option
Settings J Auto Keystone Correction” on page 89.
z Note that auto keystone correction is not performed for horizontal keystoning. Use manual
correction for horizontal keystoning.
z Performing manual horizontal keystone correction and then automatic keystone correction
can cause the manual horizontal keystone correction value to change, and can magnify
horizontal keystoning. This occurs when vertical keystone correction narrows the allowable
manual horizontal keystone correction range, causing the manually specified correction
value to be outside the correction range.
If this happens, rearrange the projector and screen so the lens is pointing straighter at
the screen, and then perform manual keystone correction or auto keystone correction
again.
51
Projection Operations
Manual Keystone Correction
Manual keystone correction can be used to correct for both vertical and horizontal keystoning.
To use manual keystone correction
1. Press
the [KEYSTONE] key.
z This causes the keystone correction screen to appear on the projected image.
2. Use
the [S] and [T] keys to select either “Vertical Keystone Correction”
or “Horizontal Keystone Correction”.
3. Use
the [W] and [X] keys to correct for keystoning.
z Each press of [W] or [X] shifts the indicator on the currently selected bar left or right.
z Keystone correction is possible within the range that the indicator is able to move within
the selected bar. Depending on conditions, the indicator may not move all the way to
either end of the bar.
z Repeat steps 2 and 3 to perform keystone correction for the other direction, if you
want.
4. After
the settings are the way you want, press the [ESC] key or the
[KEYSTONE] key.
z This causes the keystone correction screen to disappear.
52
Projection Operations
z The allowable ranges for manual keystone correction are –30 to +30 degrees vertically,
and –8 to +8 degrees horizontally.
z Performing horizontal keystone correction and then vertical keystone correction can cause
the horizontal keystone correction value to change. This occurs when vertical keystone
correction narrows the allowable manual horizontal keystone correction range, causing the
horizontal keystone correction value to be outside the correction range.
If this happens, rearrange the projector and screen so the lens is pointing straighter at
the screen, and then perform manual keystone correction or auto keystone correction
again.

Using the Setup Menu
Before Configuring Menu Settings
Always remember that the settings you configure on the setup menu are applied for the input
source (RGB, Component, S-VIDEO, VIDEO) that was selected when you displayed the setup
menu. Note the following important points.
z The items that appear on the setup menu depend on the currently selected input source
and other factors.
Some items apply to a certain specific input source, while some apply to multiple input
sources.
z Even for menu items that are common to multiple input sources, the setting range or
selectable options may differ according to the input source.
z With certain exceptions, there are basically two types of settings that can be configured
for multiple input sources. One type lets you configure different settings for each individual
input source. The other type applies a single setting to all input sources. The volume
level setting, for example, lets you configure a different setting for each input source, while
the keystone correction setting lets you configure a single common setting for all input
sources.
z For details about how settings are saved, and other details, see “Setup Menu Reference”
on page 73.

■Image Adjustment J Frequency
This sub-menu lets you manually control the frequency of the image.
Normally, the projector is able to adjust the frequency automatically. If there are vertical bands
in the projected image, however, it means that automatic adjustment is not possible for some
reason. When this happens use this setting to adjust the image frequency.
z This setting is possible only when RGB is selected as the input source.
z Settings are saved for each signal type (XGA/60Hz, UXGA/60Hz, etc.). Note, however, that
the number of signal type settings that can be saved is limited. Exceeding the limit
causes the oldest setting to be deleted automatically.
z If, for some reason, your manual frequency settings cause the image input from the
computer to disappear from the projection, you can press the [AUTO] key to perform an
auto adjust operation (page 48), which should cause the image to reappear.
■Image Adjustment J Phase
This sub-menu lets you manually control the phase of the image.
Normally, the projector is able to adjust the phase automatically. If there are color errors or
flickering in the projected image, however, it means that automatic adjustment is not possible
for some reason. When this happens use this setting to adjust the image phase.
z This setting is possible only when RGB is selected as the input source.
z See “Image Adjustment J Frequency” for details about how settings are saved.
■Image Adjustment J Noise Filter

the horizontal keystone correction value to change. This occurs when vertical keystone
correction narrows the allowable manual horizontal keystone correction range, causing the
horizontal keystone correction value to be outside the correction range. If this happens,
rearrange the projector and screen so the lens is pointing straighter at the screen, and
then perform manual keystone correction or auto keystone correction again.

Setting Explanations
4:3:
Sets the aspect ratio of the projected image to 4:3 (same as a standard TV
screen). This setting is normally used when S-VIDEO or VIDEO is selected as
the input source.
16:9: Sets the aspect ratio of the projected image to 16:9 (same as a movie screen
or high-definition TV screen). Using this setting when the input source image is
a 16:9 image that has been squeezed to a 4:3 image causes the image to be
projected with its normal 16:9 aspect ratio.
Setting Storage
A different setting is stored for each input source.
z When a component signal with an aspect ratio of 16:9 is sent from the input source, the
aspect ratio of the projected image is automatically switched to 16:9. In this case, this
setting cannot be changed.

Setting Explanations
On: When the input signal from the computer connected to the projector is not an
XGA signal, the image is automatically enlarged or reduced so it matches the
projector’s video resolution and fills the entire screen.
Off: Turns off resizing of the image input from the computer. If the image input from
the computer is smaller than XGA, the size of the projected image will also be
smaller. When the image input from the computer is larger than XGA, only the
center part of the image that corresponds to XGA size is projected.
z Resizing of an input image by “Resize Image To Fit” can call coarsening of the image or
can cause part of the image to be cut off. If this happens, try turning off “Resize Image
To Fit”. Note, however, that turning off “Resize Image To Fit” can cause the projected
image to become smaller, or it can cause only the center part of the image to be
projected.

Replacing the Lamp
Caution!
z
Continued use of a lamp that has passed its lamp life increases the risk of
the lamp rupturing. Replace the lamp with a new one as soon as possible
after the replacement message appears.
The light source lamp is a consumable item. The average life of a lamp is approximately
2000 hours. After 2000 hours, a message appears to alert you to the need of lamp
replacement. However, note that the characteristics of a particular lamp or lamp operating
conditions can cause the lamp to start to go dim or even fail before the message
appears.

During normal use, the lamp and the area around it become
extremely hot. Before replacing the lamp, turn off the projector
and wait for the cool down operation (indicated when the
POWER/STANDBY indicator is flashing amber) to finish. Next,
disconnect the AC power cord from the projector, and wait for at
least 60 minutes to allow it to cool down even further.
Touching the lamp or the area around it during operation or
immediately after turning off the projector creates the risk of
serious burn injury.
Replace the lamp using the YL-30 optional lamp cartridge only.
The projector uses a mercury lamp with high internal pressure
as its light source. A lamp that is weakened by impact, damage,
or expiration of its lamp life may explode or fail to light.
Note that the performance of the lamp differs greatly from lamp
to lamp, and due to conditions under which a lamp is used.
Never touch the glass of the lamp with your fingers. Doing so
can cause the lamp to rupture and shorten its life.
A broken lamp can cause glass fragments to be scattered inside
the lamp housing. Gas inside of the lamp housing may also be
discharged from the projector’s vent exhaust ports. Gas inside of
the lamp includes mercury, so be sure to ventilate the area
whenever the lamp breaks. Should you accidentally inhale gas
fumes or should gas fumes get into your eyes, immediately
contact a physician.
Should the lamp break, take care to avoid personal injury on the
glass fragments. Never try to replace a broken lamp on your
own. Be sure to contract your original dealer or authorized
CASIO service center to request replacement.
The lamp contains mercury. Dispose of old lamps in accordance
with the rules and regulations of your local jurisdiction.
z Disposing of the Lamp (U.S.A. Only)
This product utilizes a lamp containing mercury. Disposal of the lamp
may be regulated due to environmental considerations. For disposal or
recycling information, please contact your local authorities or the
Electronic Industries Alliance: http://www.eiae.org.
