the first time. Save these instructions for future reference.
For your own protection and prolonged operation of your Projector, be sure to read the following “IMPORTANT
SAFEGUARDS” carefully, before use.
This projector has been engineered and manufactured to ensure your personal safety. But IMPROPER USE CAN
RESULT IN POTENTIAL ELECTRICAL SHOCK OR FIRE HAZARDS. In order not to defeat the safeguards
incorporated into this Projector, observe the following basic rules for its installation, use and servicing.
1. Unplug the Projector from the wall outlet before cleaning.
2. Do not use liquid cleaners or aerosol cleaners. Use a
damp cloth for cleaning.
3. Do not use attachments not recommended by the
Projector manufacturer, as they may cause hazards.
4. Do not use the Projector near water; for example, near a
bathtub, washbowl, kitchen sink, laundry tub, in a wet
basement, near a swimming pool, etc. Never spill liquid
into the projector.
5. Do not place the Projector on an unstable cart, stand, or
table. The Projector may fall, which may cause serious
injury to a child or an adult, and/or serious damage to the
unit.
6. Wall or Ceiling Mounting—The product should be
mounted to a wall or ceiling only as recommended by
the manufacturer.
7. Projector equipment and cart
combinations should be moved
with care. Quick stops, excessive
force, and uneven surfaces may
cause the equipment and cart
combination to overturn.
8. Slots and openings in the cabinet back and bottom are
provided for ventilation. To ensure reliable operation of
the Projector and to protect it from overheating, these
openings must not be blocked or covered. The openings
should never be covered with cloth or other material.
9. This Projector should never be placed near or over a
radiator or heating vent. The Projector should not be
placed in a built-in installation such as a bookcase unless
proper ventilation is provided.
10. The Projector should be operated only from the type of
power source indicated on the back of the projector or in
the specifications. If you are not sure of the type of power
supplied to your home, consult your Projector dealer or
local power company.
11. Do not place the Projector where the cord will be abused
by persons walking on it.
12. Follow all warnings and instructions marked on the
Projector.
13. To prevent damage to the projector due to lightning and
power-line surges, unplug the projector from the power
outlet, when not in use.
14. Do not overload wall outlets and extension cords with too
many products, because this can result in fire or electric
shock.
15. Never push objects of any kind into the Projector through
the cabinet slots as they may touch high-voltage points
or cause a short circuit. This could result in a fire or electric
shock.
16. Do not attempt to service the Projector yourself. Opening
or removing covers may expose you to dangerous voltage
or other hazards. Refer all servicing to qualified service
personnel.

controls may cause damage and will often require
extensive work by a qualified technician to restore
the Projector to normal operation.
e. If the Projector has been dropped or the cabinet
has been damaged.
f. When the Projector exhibits a distinct change in
performance—this indicates a need for service.
18. When replacement parts are required, be sure the service technician has used replacement parts specified by
the manufacturer that have the same characteristics as

Cautions Concerning the Setup of the Projector
Ⳮ35˚C
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
part of filter must be cleaned more often than usual. 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 a Sharp Authorised Projector Dealer or Service Centre.
• Do not expose the projector to extreme heat or cold.
Operating temperature: +5°C to 35°C
Storage temperature: –20°C to +60°C
Notes on Operation
• The exhaust ventilative hole, the lamp cage cover and adjacent areas may
get extremely hot during projector operation. To prevent injury, do not touch
these areas until they have sufficiently cooled down.
• Allow at least 30 cm of space between the exhaust ventilative hole 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.

• The projector lens should be centred in the middle of the screen. If the lens centre 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 colours,
making viewing difficult. Close the curtains and dim the lights when setting up the screen in a sunny or bright room.
• A polarising screen cannot be used with this projector.

Image Projection
Rear Projection
Setup & Connections
• Place a translucent screen between the projector and
the audience.
• Use the projector’s menu system to reverse the
projected image. (See page 43 for use of this
function.)
• Optimal image quality can be achieved when the projector
is positioned perpendicular to the screen with all feet flat
and leveled.
Projection Using a Mirror
• 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.
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 Projection
• It is recommended that you use the optional Sharp
ceiling-mount bracket for this installation.
• Before mounting the projector, contact your nearest
Sharp Authorised Projector Dealer or Service Centre
to obtain the recommended ceiling-mount bracket
(sold separately). (AN-TK202 ceiling-mount bracket,
AN-TK201 extension tube, AN-NV6T ceiling adaptors
for AN-TK202 or AN-TK201)
• 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 43 for use
of this function.)

Gamma Correction Function
• Gamma is an image quality enhancement function
that offers a richer image by brightening the darker
portions of the image without altering the brightness
of the brighter portions.
• Four gamma settings are available to allow for
differences in the images displayed and in the
brightness of the room.
• When you are displaying images with frequent, dark
scenes, such as a film or concert, or when you are
displaying images in a bright room, this feature makes
the dark scenes easier to see and gives the
impression of greater depth in the image.

(RS-232C) Specifications and Command Settings
PC control
A computer can be used to control the projector by connecting an RS-232C cable (null modem, cross type,
commercially available) to the projector. (See page 15 for connection.)
Communication conditions
Set the serial port settings of the computer to match those of the table on the next page.
Signal format: Conforms to RS-232C standard.
Baud rate: 9,600 bps
Data length: 8 bits
Parity bit: NONE
Stop bit: 1 bit
Flow control: None
Basic format
Commands from the computer are sent in the following order: command, parameter, and return code. After the
projector processes the command from the computer, it sends a response code to the computer.
Command format

When more than one code is being sent, send each command only after the OK response code for the previous
command from the projector is verified.
• 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.
Commands
EXAMPLE
• When “Brightness” of INPUT 1 Picture Adjustment is set to 10.

This SHARP projector uses a DMD chip. This very sophisticated chip
contains 921,600 pixels. 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 pixels within acceptable tolerances which
may result in inactive dots on the picture screen. This will not affect
the picture quality or the life expectancy of the unit.

Glossary
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
Optimises projected computer images by automatically adjusting certain characteristics.
Background
Initial setting image projected when no signal is being input.
Cinema zoom
Mode that projects the 16:9 image which uses the centre of the image signal on the full-screen.
Clock
Clock adjustment is used to adjust vertical noise when clock level is incorrect.
CLR Temp (Colour temperature)
Function that can be used to adjust the colour temperature to suit the type of image input to the projector. Decrease the colour temperature to create warmer,
reddish images for natural flesh tones, or increase to create cooler, bluish images for a brighter picture.
Composite sync
Signal combining horizontal and vertical sync pulses.
Digital keystone correction
Function to digitally correct a distorted image when the projector is set up at an angle, smoothes out jaggies on keystone images and compresses the image
not only horizontally but vertically keeping the 4 : 3 aspect ratio.
Digital shift
Shifts image up or down easily by
VIDEO and DTV inputs.
/
buttons when RESIZE mode of input image is SMART STRETCH, CINEMA ZOOM, or DOT BY DOT of COMPUTER,
Dot by dot
Mode that projects images in their native resolution.
GAMMA
Image quality enhancement function that offers a richer image by brightening the darker portions of the image without altering the brightness of the brighter
portions. You can select four different modes : STANDARD, GAMMA 1, GAMMA 2 and CUSTOM.
Intelligent compression and expansion
High quality resizing of lower and higher resolution images to fit the projector’s native resolution.
Lens shift
The lens can be easily raised and lowered to minimise or eliminate “Keystone” type effect.
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.
Progressive Mode
The progressive display projects a smoother video image. You can select three different modes : 2D Progressive, 3D Progressive and Film Mode.
RESIZE
Allows you to modify or customise the picture display mode to enhance the input image. You can select six different modes: SIDE BAR, SMART STRETCH,
CINEMA ZOOM, STRETCH, NORMAL, and DOT BY DOT.
RS-232C
Function to control the projector from the computer by using the RS-232C ports on the projector and computer.
Side bar
Mode that projects the normal 4:3 image at the 4:3 area for the centre of the screen.
Smart Stretch
Mode that stretches the right and left sides of the 4:3 image horizontally while maintaining the aspect ratio around the centre of the image to display it on the WIDE
screen.
Status function
Displays the settings of each adjustment item.
Stretch
Mode that stretches the 4:3 image horizontally to display it on the WIDE screen.
Sync on green
Video signal mode of a computer which overlaps horizontal and vertical sync signal to green colour signal pin.
3D DNR (3D Digital Noise Reduction)
Appendix
Provides high quality images with minimal background.
