Information
Caution Concerning the Lamp Unit
Potential hazard of glass particles if lamp ruptures. Please have the nearest
Authorized SharpVision Service Center or Dealer replace lamp if rupture occurs.
See “Replacing the Projection Lamp” on pages 38 and 39.

Cautions Concerning the Setup of the Projector
95˚F
(Ⳮ35˚C)
41˚F
(Ⳮ5˚C)
For minimal servicing and to maintain high image quality, SHARP recommends
that this projector be installed in an area free from humidity, dust and cigarette
smoke. When the projector is subjected to these environments, the lens and filter
must be cleaned more often. Periodically the filter should be replaced and the
projector should be cleaned internally. As long as the projector is properly
maintained in this manner, use in these environments will not reduce the overall
operation life. Please note that all internal cleaning must be performed by the
nearest Authorized SharpVision Service Center or Dealer.
• Do not expose the projector to extreme heat or cold.
Operating temperature: 41°F to 95°F (Ⳮ5°C to Ⳮ35°C)
Storage temperature: ⳮ4°F to 140°F (ⳮ20°C to Ⳮ60°C)
Notes on Operation
• The mark shown on the left calls the user’s attention to a part of the projector
that emits intense heat during operation.
• The exhaust vent, the lamp cage cover and adjacent areas may be extremely
hot during projector operation. To prevent injury, do not touch these areas until
they have sufficiently cooled.
• Allow at least 4 inches (10 cm) of space between the cooling fan (exhaust
vent) and the nearest wall or obstruction.
• If the cooling fan becomes obstructed, a protection device will automatically
turn off the projector lamp. This does not indicate a malfunction. Remove the
projector power cord from the wall outlet and wait at least 10 minutes. Then
turn on the power by plugging the power cord back in. This will return the
projector to the normal operating condition.
Temperature Monitor Function
If the projector starts to overheat due to setup problems or a dirty air filter, “TEMP.”
will appear in the lower-left corner of the picture. If the temperature continues to
rise, the lamp will turn off, the TEMPERATURE WARNING indicator on the projector
will flash, and after a 90-second cooling-off period the power will shut off. Refer
to “Lamp/Maintenance Indicators” on page 37, for details.
• The cooling fan regulates the internal temperature, and its performance is automatically
controlled. The sound of the fan may change during projector operation due to changes
in the fan speed.
Lamp Monitor Function
When the projector is turned on after the lamp has been used for 900 hours,
“LAMP” will appear in the lower-left corner of the picture to advise you to replace
the lamp. See pages 38 and 39 for lamp replacement. If the lamp has been used
for 1,000 hours, the projector power will automatically turn off and the projector
will enter standby mode. Refer to “Lamp/Maintenance Indicators” on page 37,
for details.

E-16
Setting up the Screen
Position the projector perpendicular to the screen with all feet flat and level to achieve an optimal image.
Move the projector forward or backward if the edges of the image are distorted.
• The projector lens should be centered in the middle of the screen. If the lens center is not perpendicular to the screen, the image will be
distorted, making viewing difficult.
• Position the screen so that it is not in direct sunlight or room light. Light falling directly onto the screen washes out colors, making viewing
difficult. Close the curtains and dim the lights when setting up the screen in a sunny or bright room.
• A polarizing screen cannot be used with this projector.
Standard Setup (Front Projection)
Place the projector at the required distance from the screen according to the desired picture size. (See the table
below.)

• Values with a minus () sign indicate the distance of the lens center below the bottom of the screen.
• The values do not match up when applying the formula in *1 to *4 above. However, this is not a calculation
error.
• For optimum focus, the recommended projection distance (L) is from 3 9 (1.15m) to 32 10 (10.0m).
Setting up the Screen
Using the Adjustment Feet
You can adjust the height of the image by raising the projector with the
foot releases.
1 Press the foot releases and lift the projector to the desired angle.
(Adjustable up to approximately 7° from the standard position.)
2 Remove your hands from the foot releases. Once the adjustment
feet have locked in position, release the projector.
3 If the screen is at an angle, the adjusters can be used to adjust
the angle of the image.
Returning the projector to its original position
While holding the projector, press the foot releases and slowly lower the projector
to its original position.
• When an adjustment is made, the image may become distorted (keystoned), depending
on the relative positions of the projector and the screen.
Operation
CAUTION
• Do not press the foot releases when the adjustment feet are extended without firmly holding the projector.
• Do not hold the lens when lifting or lowering the projector.
• When lowering the projector, be careful not to get your fingers caught in the area between the adjustment feet and the
projector.
Reversed Image Setup
Rear projection
Projection using a mirror
• Place a translucent screen between the projector and
the audience.
• Use the projector’s menu system to reverse the
projected image. (See page 34 for use of this
function.)
• When the distance between the projector and screen
is not sufficient for normal rear projection, you can
use a mirror to reflect the image onto the screen.
• Place a mirror (normal flat type) in front of the lens.
• Project the normal image onto the mirror.
• The image reflected from the mirror is projected onto
the translucent screen.
• Optimal image quality can be achieved when the projector is positioned perpendicular to the screen with all feet flat and level.
CAUTION
• When using a mirror, be sure to carefully position both the projector and the mirror so the light does not shine into the eyes of
the audience.
Ceiling-mount Setup
• It is recommended that you use the optional Sharp ceiling-mount
bracket for this installation.
• Before mounting the projector, contact your nearest Authorized
SharpVision Dealer or Servicer to obtain the recommended ceilingmount bracket and hardware (sold separately). (AN-CM240 ceilingmount bracket, AN-EP101AP extension tube for AN-CM240 and
AN-PGCM80 ceiling adapter for AN-CM240.)
• When the projector is in the inverted position, use the upper edge
of the screen as the base line.
• Use the projector’s menu system to select the appropriate projection
mode. (See page 34 for use of this function.)
E-18
Setting up the Screen
Digital Keystone Correction
• When the image is distorted due to the projection

Appendix
• When using the computer control function of the projector, the projector operating status cannot be read to the computer.
Therefore, confirm the status by transmitting the display commands for each adjustment menu and checking the status with
the On-screen Display. If the projector receives a command other than a menu display command, it will execute the command without displaying the On-screen Display.

This SHARP projector uses LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) panels. These
very sophisticated panels contain 480,000 pixels ( RGB) TFTs (Thin
Film Transistors). As with any high technology electronic equipment
such as large screen TVs, video systems and video cameras, there
are certain acceptable tolerances that the equipment must conform
to.
This unit has some inactive TFTs within acceptable tolerances which
may result in illuminated or inactive dots on the picture screen. This
will not affect the picture quality or the life expectancy of the unit.
If you have any questions about this matter, please call toll free 1-877DTV-SHARP (1-877-388-7427). U.S.A. ONLY
Specifications are subject to change without notice.

Glossary
Active digital keystone correction
Corrects keystone distortion caused when the projected image is not perpendicular to the screen. This method
provides not only horizontal correction, but vertical as well, thus maintaining the original 4:3 aspect ratio and
eliminating jag lines.
Aspect ratio
Width and height ratio of an image. The normal aspect ratio of a computer and video image is 4 : 3. There are
also wide images with an aspect ratio of 16 : 9 and 21 : 9.
Auto sync
Optimizes projected computer images by automatically adjusting certain characteristics.
Background
Initial setting image projected when no signal is being input.
Clock
Clock adjustment is used to adjust vertical noise when clock level is incorrect.
Color temperature
Function that can be used to adjust the color temperature to suit the type of image input to the projector.
Freeze
Function to freeze a moving image.
Gamma correction
Offers richer image viewing with dark scene phase and contrast correction according to image and room
brightness. Three gamma settings are available.
GUI
Graphical User Interface. User interface with graphics that allow easier operation.
Intelligent compression and expansion
High quality resizing of lower and higher resolution images to fit the projector’s native resolution.
Phase
Phase shift is a timing shift between isomorphic signals with the same resolution. When phase level is incorrect,
the projected image typically displays horizontal flicker.
Picture display mode
Allows you to modify or customize the picture display mode to enhance the input image.
Progressive mode (Film mode)
Optimizes the image by converting the interlaced signal to the progressive. Useful for displaying slow-moving
images or still images.
RS-232C
Function to control the projector from the computer by using the RS-232C ports on the projector and computer.
Sync on green
Video signal mode of a computer which overlaps horizontal and vertical sync signal to green color signal pin.
Theater mode function
Function with toggle switch to control the quantity of projected light. Select “ON” or “OFF” to decrease or
increase brightness, power consumption and fan noise.
