Introduction
Thank you for purchasing the Vidikron Vision Model 80 projector and welcome to the Vidikron family. With proper setup and use, this product will bring you many years of enjoyment.
Introduction to the Vidikron Vision Model 80 D-ILA™ Projector
Vidikron presents the highest resolution home theater video available today. The Vision™ Model 80 employs advanced D-ILA™ (Direct Drive
Image Light Amplifier) technology and boasts a native resolution of 1920 x 1080 – over six million pixels.
This exciting technology is capable of producing the most natural, smooth images available in digital projection. Tremendous detail, richly
saturated colors and outstanding black level reproduction are hallmarks of the Model 80.
Vidikron’s incorporation of three D-ILA chips result in exceptionally low noise without the flicker and “rainbow effect” that often plague
one-chip digital video display devices. Vidikron engineers have also paid careful attention to accurate gray scale tracking and true 6500K
color reproduction capability. Together, all of these engineering achievements produce the most pleasing and film-like high resolution
pictures imaginable.
With 1050 ANSI lumens of light output (CSMS™ Light Output of 18.1 ft-Lamberts) and a 2100:1 contrast ratio, the Model 80 offers stateof-the-art picture quality on screens as large as eight feet wide. Vidikron’s exclusive Imagix™ video processing is featured in a separate
outboard controller/processor that scales signals from 480i to 1080i to the Model 80’s native1080p resolution, transforming any source
into stunning high definition resolution.

Replacing the Lamp (For service personnel only)
Lamp and Lamp Usage Time
The maximum life of the lamp used for this unit is about 2000 hours, and may be far less depending on the type of usage and projector
settings.
• The lamp life may not reach 2000 hours depending on the operating conditions.
When the lamp approaches the end of its service life, deterioration progresses rapidly. Get ready or replace with a new lamp when the accumulated lamp usage time exceeds 1900 hours. Depending on the operating conditions, the lamp may have to be exchanged earlier. If
the image is dark or color tone abnormal, replace the lamp as soon as possible. You can also check the accumulated hours of usage. Please
refer to the “Lamp Hour” item of the “Information” menu. (Page 23,)
Please consult your authorized Vidikron dealer when purchasing a new lamp unit
■ When the lamp usage time exceeds 1000 hours
A message indicating “1000 h” will be displayed on the screen.
• Press the [EXIT] button to clear the display.
■ When the lamp usage time exceeds 1900 hours
The [LAMP] indicator lights up.
■ When starting projection after lamp usage time exceeds
1900 hours
The “Lamp replacement” message will be displayed on the
screen.
• Press the [EXIT] button to clear the display.
■ When lamp usage time exceeds 2000 hours
The [LAMP] indicator starts to blink.
The “Warning” and “Lamp replacement” messages will be displayed
on the projected screen with the “Warning” word blinking.
• Press the [EXIT] button to clear the display.
However, the same “Warning” and “Lamp replacement” messages
will be displayed again after 1 hour.
When the unit is switched to the standby mode or turned off after
the lamp usage time exceeds 2000 hours, it cannot be switched
back to the projection mode again. In this case, replace with a
new lamp and reset the lamp time.
■ When the lamp usage time exceeds 2010 hours
The unit quits the projection mode (operating mode) and switches into the cool down mode.
• The [LAMP] and [OPERATE] indicators will start blinking.
• The projection mode (operating mode) cannot be restored until
a new lamp is replaced and the lamp time reset.
About Lamp Replacement
• If this unit is installed in a constricted place, attempting to replace the lamp in that place may cause injury. Move this unit to a place
large enough to perform the work.
• Use only genuine replacement parts for the lamp unit. Otherwise, malfunction may occur. Also, never attempt to re-use an old lamp
unit. This may cause marked performance deterioration or lamp blowout, thus leading to unit malfunction. Broken pieces of the lamp
outside this unit may also cause injuries during lamp unit exchange.
• Do not replace the lamp immediately after this unit has been used. The temperature of the lamp unit is still high and this may cause a
burn. Allow a cooling period of 1 hour or more before replacement.
• Before replacing the lamp unit, pull out the power plug from the outlet while the [STAND BY] indicator is still on. Replacing a lamp with
the plug connected to the outlet may cause injuries or electric shocks.
Resetting Lamp Time
After your Vidikron dealer installs a new lamp, he will reset the lamp time. The lamp time counter will be reset and a new count will start.
If display of the accumulated lamp time has reached 2000 hours, this unit will not work (lamp does not light up) unless the lamp time is
reset.
29
Cleaning and Replacing the Filter
Have your Vidikron dealer clean the filter regularly or air intake efficiency may deteriorate and malfunction may occur. If the filter is extremely dirty and cannot be cleaned, or if it is damaged, replace the filter with a new one. Otherwise, dirt may enter the unit and appear
on the screen, preventing you from enjoying the video fully. If dirt has entered the unit or if you need information about the filter, please
consult your authorized Vidikron dealer.
• The air inlet filter on the right side cannot be removed. Please have this cleaned regularly.
