Notes on Handling and Storage
Be sure to observe the following precautions to avoid malfunctions, operating errors or damage to the projector.
Notes on Handling and Storage
• Do not set up the projector near high-voltage electrical wires or sources of magnetic fields.
These may interfere with correct operation.
• Do not touch the lens with bare hands.
•
•
•
•
•
If fingerprints or grease get onto the lens, it can interfere with the quality of the projected images. Attach the lens
cover to the lens when the projector is not in use.
During projection, some points (dots) may appear lit at all times, or they may be dark at all times.
This is caused by the characteristics of the LCD panel, and is not a sign of a malfunction. The LCD panel is
manufactured using extremely high-precision technology. However, black dots may appear on the panel, or some
red, blue or green dots may light extremely brightly at times. Furthermore, sometimes stripe-shaped color
irregularities or brightness irregularities may also appear.
Remove the batteries from the remote control before storage.
If the batteries are left in the remote control for long periods, they may leak.
Always attach the lens cap to the lens when not using the projector, to prevent the lens from becoming dirty or
damaged.
The mercury lamp that is used as the projector's light source deteriorates as a result of normal use and as a
result of impacts or other damage, and may also break with a loud noise, stop working or reach the end of its
service life more quickly.
At such times, the amount of time remaining before the lamp breaks or stops working may vary greatly depending
on the individual lamp characteristics and the operating environment. These are normal characteristics of mercury
lamps. You should always have a spare lamp ready in case it is needed.
YAMAHA takes no responsibility for loss or damage caused by damage to the projector or operating failures
outside normal service warranty conditions.
Lamp Operating Errors
The mercury lamp that is used as the light source for this projector may stop operating on occasions. This is a normal
characteristic of mercury lamps. If the lamp does not turn on when the projector's power is turned on, remove the
lamp and check if it is broken. If the lamp is not broken, reinstall it. Refer to "Replacing the Lamp" on page 48 of this
manual for instruction on removing and reinstalling the lamp.
If the lamp is broken, replace it with a new lamp. It is recommended that you have a spare lamp ready at all times in
case it is needed.
Notes on Carrying the Projector
• Turn off the projector power and then disconnect the power cord from the electrical outlet.
Furthermore, check that all other cables have been disconnected.
• Attach the lens cap to the lens.
• Retract the adjustable foot.
• If your model of projector has a handle, hold the projector by the handle when carrying it.

Adoption of a wide 1280 x 720 dot panel
This panel allows high-definition images to be
reproduced accurately.
720
Adoption of a special high-resolution DCDi video circuit developed by Faroudja.
This circuit greatly reduces the jagged edges that
resulted from conventional progressive conversion,
to produce much smoother and natural movement.
(p.30)
Adoption of a short focal-length lens that can project onto 80-inch screens
at distances of 2.5m (8.2 ft.)
This lens is ideal for projecting onto large
indoor screens. The projector can also
project onto 80-inch screens in rooms
with an area of about 10 m2.
(Refer to the Setup Guide.)
Includes 5 picture modes
You can select the desired color mode to match the
images being projected from five preset modes in order
to obtain the optimum image quality.
(p.14)
Includes a variety of color adjustment modes
Various color settings can be adjusted to suit
your preferences, from individual RGB balance
adjustment to setting the color temperature of
your choice. The adjusted settings can then be
stored in memory and recalled at a touch of a
button on the remote control.

Projector
• When keystone correction is carried out, the projected image will become smaller.
• The keystone correction settings are memorized, so that if you change the position or angle of
the projector, you may need to readjust the keystone correction settings.
• If the images become uneven in appearance after keystone correction is carried out, decrease
the “Sharpness” setting. (p.27, 29)
• Keystone correction can also be carried out using the projector menu. (p.31)
• If the value displayed in the gauge on the screen stops changing when horizontal or vertical
keystone correction is being carried out, it indicates that the limit for horizontal or vertical
keystone correction has been exceeded. Check that the projector has not been set up at an
angle which exceeds the proper limit.

Basic Operations
The aspect ratio for projected images can be selected from the following five types of setting. However,
the aspect ratio settings that can be selected will vary depending on the input signal.
Do not use the aspect mode function to elongate or compress image that are being projected for
commercial purposes or in public places such as hotel lobbies or stores, as doing so may infringe
the rights of the original copyright owner for the images under copyright protection laws.
For Video (SDTV) signals, the aspect
mode changes in the following order
each time the [ASPECT] button on
either the projector's control panel or
the remote control is pressed.
Procedure
Projector
Remote control
Normal
Normal → Squeeze → Zoom → Zoom -Subtitle→ Through → Squeeze Through
The current setting appears on the screen each
time the aspect ratio changes.
Details of each aspect ratio are as follows.
Normal mode
4:3 image
The aspect ratio of the images being input
is maintained, and the images are
projected into a 16:9 screen area.
When 4:3 images are being projected,
black bands will appear at the left and
right of the image as shown in the
illustration at left.

Adjusting the Image Quality
Squeeze mode
When images in squeeze mode
are displayed on a 4:3 TV screen
Viewed using the projector
Use this setting if the connected video
source has a 16:9 output mode (Squeeze
mode).
If images in squeeze mode are viewed on a
4:3 TV screen, the images are compressed
horizontally and elongated vertically. If
Squeeze mode is selected on the projector,
the images are projected correctly in their
native wide-screen (16:9) format.
Images output in 4:3 format
When the projector's squeeze
mode is applied
When images output in 4:3 format are
projected using the projector's squeeze

When 4:3 images with subtitles included
are projected using the projector's Zoom
Subtitle mode, the images are enlarged in
the vertical and horizontal directions to
resize them to 16:9 size.
Because the images are enlarged
vertically, the subtitles may sometimes be
displayed outside the actual projection
area. If this happens, you can adjust the
display position by choosing the "Signal"

If the input signal resolution is 1280 x 720
dots or less, the images are projected onto
the screen with the input signal resolution
unchanged. Because of this, the size of the
displayed images will change depending
on the input resolution.
The picture quality will be the clearest for
portions of the image that have not been
resized horizontally or vertically.
Basic Operations
Squeeze Through mode
If the input signal resolution is 1280 x 720
dots or less, the input signal resolution is
elongated horizontally and the images are
projected at an aspect ratio of 16:9.
Because of this, the size of the displayed
images will change depending on the input
resolution.
The portions that are not vertically resized
will appear with higher image quality.
Automatic Adjustment of Computer Images
This adjusts computer images (INPUT A [RGB] and INPUT B [RGB] only) to the optimum condition.
Automatic adjustment involves adjustment of tracking , display position and synchronization (Sync) for
RGB signals.
While an image is being projected from
the computer, press the [AUTO] button
on the remote control.
The screen will appear black while the
adjustment is being made.
Procedure
Remote control
Automatic adjustment may not work properly with some types of signals which are output by
computers. In such cases, you may need to adjust the tracking and synchronization manually
using the projector menu. (p.28)

Lamp operating
error
This can happen when the main power switch at the rear of the
projector was turned off before the cool-down period had
finished the last time the projector was turned off, and it was then
turned back on again before one hour had passed.
When turning off the projector, wait 2 minutes. After about 2
minutes, the cooling fan will stop. When the cooling fan stops,
turn off the main power switch and then turn it back on again.
When the main power switch is turned back on, the projector will
return to its previous state, so press the [STANDBY/ON] button
on either the remote control or the projector's control panel to
turn it back on. If the lamp operating error happens again when
the power is turned back on, remove the lamp and check if the
lamp is broken. If it is not broken, reinstall it. If it is broken,
replace it. Then turn on the main power switch at the rear of the
projector and press the [STANDBY/ON] button on either the
remote control or the projector's control panel.
If the indicators still show a problem, stop using the projector,
turn off the main power switch, disconnect the power cord from
the electrical outlet, and contact your dealer.

Problem and remedy
The lamp will turn off automatically and projection will stop.
Wait for about 5 minutes without operating the projector. After 5
minutes have elapsed, the projector's cooling fan will stop. When
the cooling fan stops, turn off the main power switch and then
turn it back on again.
If the projector overheats, check the following two points.
• Is the setting-up location well ventilated?
Check that the air inlet and air outlet are clear, and that the
projector is not positioned against a wall.
• Is the air filter blocked with dust?
If the air filter is dirty, it should be cleaned.
When the main power switch is turned back on, the projector will
return to its previous state, so press the [STANDBY/ON] button
on either the remote control or the projector's control panel to turn
it back on. If the projector continues to overheat even after the
above points have been checked, or if the indicators show a
problem when the power is turned back on, stop using the
projector, turn off the main power switch, disconnect the power
cord from the electrical outlet, and contact your dealer.
(This is not an abnormality, but if the temperature rises too high
again, projection will stop automatically.)
• Set the projector up in a place which is well-ventilated, and so
that the air inlet and exhaust vents are clear.
• Clean the air filter.

Check the mode which corresponds to the
frequency of the image signals being output
from the computer.
Refer to the documentation provided with your
computer for details on changing the resolution and
frequency of the image signals being output from the
computer. (p.52)
If a laptop computer or a computer with a
LCD screen has been connected to the
projector, it is necessary to output the image
signals to the projector rather than to the
screen.
Normally image signals are output to only the
computer's LCD screen, so you need to change the
output to an external destination. For some computer
models, when the image signals are output externally,
they no longer appear on the LCD screen. For details,
refer to the section of the documentation provided with
your computer under a heading such as "External
output", "Connecting an external monitor" or similar.
(p.7)
Troubleshooting
Probable cause
39
When the Indicators Provide No Help
Condition
Poor image quality
• The image is fuzzy
• Part of the image is out of focus
• The whole image is out of focus
• The image is distorted
• The image contains interference
Probable cause
Remedy
Has the focus been adjusted correctly?
Adjust the focus. (p.14)
Has the front adjustable foot been adjusted
so that the projection angle is too big?
Adjust the projection angle. (p.11)
If the projection angle is too big, the image will be out
of focus vertically.
Is the projector at the correct distance?
The recommended distance from the projector to the
screen is within 0.9 - 13 m (2.9 - 42.6 ft). Set up the
projector so that the projection distance is within this
range. (Setup Guide)
Is the projector beam perpendicular to the
screen?
Adjust the projection angle so that the projector beam
is perpendicular to the screen. (p.11)
Is the lens dirty?
Clean the lens. (p.46)
Has condensation formed on the lens?
Turn off the power and wait for the condensation to
disappear.
If the projector is suddenly taken from a cold
environment to a warm environment, condensation may
form on the lens, and this may cause the images to
appear fuzzy.
Does the input signal setting match the
connected source?
Use the “Video Signal”, “INPUT A Signal” or “INPUT
B Signal” commands in the “Signal” menu to select the
signal format that matches the connected source.
“Signal” - “Video Signal”, “INPUT A Signal”,
“INPUT B Signal” (p.30)
Are the cables connected correctly?
Check that all cables that are required for projection are
connected correctly. (Setup Guide)
Is an extension cable being used?
Use the accessory cables provided, or connect a signal
amplifier and see if this helps.
If an extension cable is used, electrical interference
may increase.
40
Have the synchronization , tracking and
display position been adjusted correctly?
(When connected to a computer)
Press the [AUTO] button on either the remote control
or the projector's control panel to adjust these settings.
You can also use the menus to make the adjustment.
(p.17, “Image” - “Tracking” , “Sync.” p.28)

(When connected to a computer)
Set the computer so that the signals that are output are
compatible with this projector. Refer to the
documentation provided with your computer for details
on changing the settings. (p.52)
Condition
• Image is too large (Only part of the image is displayed)
• Image is too small
Probable cause
Remedy
The display mode (aspect ratio ) setting may
not be selected correctly.
Press the [ASPECT] button on either the remote control
or the projector's control panel. (p.15)
Has the "Position" setting been adjusted
correctly?
Use the “Position” command in the “Signal” menu to
adjust. (p.30)
Has the correct resolution been selected?
Set the computer so that the signals that are output are
compatible with this projector. Refer to the
documentation provided with your computer for details
on changing the settings. (p.52)
Change the resolution for the laptop
computer or computer with a LCD screen.
Change the resolution so that the image is displayed in
the whole of the projection area, or set the image signal
to external output only. (p.7)
Has the computer been set for dual display?
If dual display has been activated in the “Display
Properties” of the computer's “Control Panel”, the
projector will only project about half of the image on
the computer screen. To display the whole of the image
on the computer screen, turn off the dual display setting.
Refer to the video driver manual for the computer's
monitor for further details.
Condition
The image colors are not right
Remedy
Are the cables connected correctly?
Check that all cables that are required for projection are
connected correctly. (Setup Guide)
Has the image contrast
correctly?
Use the “White Level” command in the “Video” menu
to adjust the contrast.
“Image” - “White Level” (p.26, 28)
been adjusted
Have the color temperature, flesh tone and
color balance been set correctly?
Use the “Image” menu to adjust the contrast.
“Image” - “Color Temp.”, “Flesh Tone”, “Color
Balance” (p.27, 29)
Have the color intensity and tint been
adjusted correctly?
Use the “Image” menu to adjust the “Saturation” and
“Hue” settings
“Image” - “Saturation”, “Hue” (p.26)
(The colors may not exactly match the colors in the
image on the computer screen or LCD screen, but this is
normal and is not the sign of a problem.)
Is the lamp due for replacement?
Troubleshooting
Probable cause
Replace the lamp with a new one. (p.48, 49)
If the LAMP/COVER indicator is flashing orange, it
means that the lamp will soon be due for replacement.
When the lamp is nearly due for replacement, the image
will become darker and the tint will become poorer.
Does the input signal setting match the
connected source?
Use the “Video Signal”, “INPUT A Signal” or “INPUT
B Signal” commands in the “Signal” menu to select the
signal format that matches the connected source.
“Signal” - “Video Signal”, “INPUT A Signal”, “INPUT B

The operating angle for the remote control is
approximately 30° horizontally and approximately 30°
vertically. Use the remote control within these ranges.
(Setup Guide)
Is the remote control too far from the
projector?
The operating distance for the remote control is
approximately 7 m (23 ft.). Use the remote control
within this distance. (Setup Guide)
Is direct sunlight or strong light from
fluorescent lamps shining onto the remote
control light-receiving area?
Avoid using projector in places where the remote
control light-receiving area is exposed to strong light.
Are there batteries in the remote control?
Insert batteries into the remote control. (Setup Guide)
Are the batteries dead?
Replace the batteries with new ones. (Setup Guide)
Have the batteries been inserted correctly?
Insert the batteries so that they face in the correct
direction. (Setup Guide)
Condition
The power does not turn off (after the [STANDBY/ON]

Maintenance
This section describes maintenance tasks such as cleaning the projector and replacing consumable parts.
Cleaning
You should clean the projector if it becomes dirty or if the quality of projected images starts to deteriorate.
Be sure to read the Safety Instructions in this manual for details on safe handling of
the projector during cleaning.
Cleaning the Projector Case
Clean the projector case by wiping it gently with a soft cloth.
If the projector is particularly dirty, moisten the cloth with water containing a small amount of neutral
detergent, and then firmly wring the cloth dry before using it to wipe the projector case. Then wipe the case
again with a soft, dry cloth.
Do not use volatile substances such as wax, alcohol or thinner to clean the projector
case. These can cause the case to warp and make the coating finish peel off.
Cleaning the Lens
Use a commercially-available air blower, or use a lens cleaning paper to gently wipe the lens.
Do not rub the lens with harsh materials or subject the lens to shocks, as it can
easily become damaged.
Cleaning the Air Filter
If the air filter becomes clogged with dust, it can cause overheating and damage the projector.
Stand up the projector in order to prevent dust getting inside the projector, and then use a vacuum cleaner to
clean away the dust from the air filter.
• If the air filter is difficult to clean or if it is broken,
it should be replaced. Contact your dealer for a
spare air filter.
• Replacement lamps are provided with a spare
air filter. The air filter should also be replaced
when the lamp is replaced.

Replacing Consumables
Replacing Consumables
This section describes how to replace the lamp and the air filter.
Lamp Replacement Period
It is time to replace the lamp when:
•
The message "Lamp Replace" appears on the screen when projection starts.
The message appears for 30 seconds, and disappears again
after 30 seconds have passed.
A message will be displayed.
•
The LAMP/COVER indicator flashes orange or lights red.
Lamp indicator flashes orange or lights red.
The projected image gets darker or starts to deteriorate.
• In order to maintain the brightness and quality of the projected images, replace the lamp as
soon as possible after the warning message appears.
• The replacement warning message is set to appear after 2900 hours of lamp use in order to
maintain the brightness and quality of the projected images. If you continue to use the lamp after
this period, the possibility of the lamp breaking becomes greater. When the lamp replacement
message appears, replace the lamp with a new one as soon as possible, even if it is still
working.
• The warning message appears after 2900 hours of use, but the actual life of each individual
lamp will vary depending on the characteristics of the lamp and on the way it has been used.
Some lamps may stop operating before 2900 hours of use, so you should always have a spare
lamp ready in case.
• When the lamp replacement warning message appears, the user's logo will not appear even if
the “Startup Screen” setting is “ON”.
• Contact your dealer for a spare lamp.

Maintenance
Replacing the Lamp
• If the lamp stops working and needs to be replaced, there is the danger that the lamp may
break when handled.
If replacing the lamp of a projector which has been installed to the ceiling, you should
remove the projector from the ceiling before replacing the lamp. If the projector cannot be
removed from the ceiling, you should always assume that the lamp is broken and handle it
with extreme care during removal. Furthermore, you should stand to the side of the
projector, not underneath it.
• Wait until the lamp has cooled down sufficiently before opening the lamp cover. After the
cool-down period has finished, it takes approximately a further 30 minutes for the lamp to
be cool enough.

Turn off the main power switch at the
rear of the projector. (p.9)
After the lamp has cooled down
sufficiently, open the lamp cover.
After the cool-down period has finished, it takes
approximately a further 30 minutes for the lamp
to be cool enough.
Use the screwdriver that is provided with the
replacement lamp to slide the lamp cover opening
switch so that the lamp cover lifts up. Clasp the
lifted-up portion of the lamp cover with your
fingers and slide the cover toward the front of the
projector to open it.
Loosen the two lamp fixing screws.
Use the screwdriver that is supplied with the
replacement lamp to loosen the two lamp fixing
screws that are securing the lamp to the projector.
Take out the lamp.
Hold the lamp so that it faces the correct way to
fit into the projector, and then push it in securely
and tighten the two fixing screws.

Install the lamp cover.
Close the lamp cover, slide it toward the rear of
the projector, and then push the front part
downward until it clicks into place.
• Install the lamp securely. For safety, the lamp will turn off automatically when the lamp cover is
opened. Moreover, the lamp will not turn on if the lamp or the lamp cover is not installed
correctly.
• Replacement lamps are provided with a spare air filter. The air filter should also be replaced
when the lamp is replaced.
• Dispose of used lamps properly in accordance with your local regulations.
Resetting the Lamp Operating Time
The projector has a built-in counter which keeps track of the lamp operating time. When the cumulative
operating time reaches a certain point, it causes the replacement warning message to be displayed. Therefore,
the counter needs to be reset after the lamp has been replaced with a new one. You can do this using the
projector menu.
Do not reset the lamp operating time except after the lamp has been replaced, otherwise the lamp
replacement period will not be indicated correctly.

3-2 pull-down
detection-type IP
conversion
This function directly converts image sources that have been recorded in the same 24-frame
format used for movies into 60-frame progressive signals. This allows data such as DVD
software that has been recorded in 24-frame format to be played back on large screens with
more natural and accurate reproduction, without any loss of image quality from the original
movie.
Aspect ratio
The ratio between an image's length and its height. HDTV images have an aspect ratio of 16:9
and appear elongated. The aspect ratio for standard images is 4:3.
Color
difference
signal
(component)
A type of video signal output by video equipment which actually consists of three separate
signals: a red + luminance signal (R-Y), a luminance signal (Y) and a blue + luminance signal
(B-Y). Each signal is transmitted along a separate cable. Color difference signals generally
result in a better image than composite signals (in which the red, green and blue signals and
the luminance signal are all transmitted along a single cable).
Color
temperature
The temperature of an object which is emitting light. If the color temperature is high, the
colors tend to take on a bluish tinge. If the color temperature is lower, the colors tend to take
on a reddish tinge.
Component video
Video signals which have the video brightness signals and color signals separated, in order to
provide better image quality.
In high-definition TV (HDTV), it refers to images which consist of three independent signals:
Y (luminance signal), and PB and PR (color difference signals).
Composite video
Video signals which have the video brightness signals and color signals mixed together. The
type of signals commonly used by household video equipment (NTSC format).
The signals consist of the carrier signal Y (luminance signal) and the chroma (color) signal
which are contained in the color signal.
Contrast
The relative brightness of the light and dark areas of an image can be increased or decreased
in order to make text and graphics stand out more clearly, or to make them appear softer.
Cool-down
The cooling process for the projector lamp continues even after the [STANDBY/ON] button
on either the remote control or the projector's control panel has been pressed to turn off the
projector. All button operations for the emote control and the projector's control panel are
disabled while the cooling fan is operating at this time. The length of time that this is
happening is called the "cool-down period". The cool-down period lasts for about 5 minutes.
The actual time will vary depending on the external air temperature.
DCDi function
An abbreviation for Directional Correlational Deinterlacing. Refers to a high-resolution
image circuit function developed by Faroudja. It incorporates the latest in edge cutting
technology to smooth the jaggedness from the edges of images that have been converted from
interlaced to progressive video, in order to provide more natural images.
DVI
Abbreviation for Digital Visual Interface. Refers to a standard method for digital
transmission of video signals.
DVI is a standard that is also targeted towards digital household appliances other than
computers.
Film judgment
function
This function determines whether or not the video source is a 24 Hz progressive film source.
Gain
The adjustment of minute changes in color that occur as result of factors such as differences
in the equipment used to display images. It adjusts the coloration in brighter ranges separately
for R, G and B components.
Gamma
The adjustment of minute changes in color that occur as result of factors such as differences
in the equipment used to display images. It adjusts the coloration in intermediate ranges
separately for R, G and B components.
HDTV
An abbreviation for High-Definition Television. It refers to high-definition systems which
satisfy the following conditions.
• It may also include vertical resolutions of 720p or 1080i or above (p = progressive
scanning; i = interlaced scanning) or 480p.
• Screen aspect ratio of 16:9
• Dolby Digital audio reception and playback (or output)

Interlaced
A method of image scanning whereby the lines in a single image are divided into two sections
or "fields". The signal bandwidth used for interlaced scanning is approximately half that
required for progressive scanning when images with the same still picture resolution are
broadcast.
Offset
The adjustment of minute changes in color that occur as result of factors such as differences
in the equipment used to display images. It adjusts the coloration in darker ranges separately
for R, G and B components.
Refresh Rate
The light-emitting element of a display maintains the same luminosity and color for an
extremely short time. Because of this, the image must be scanned many times per second in
order to refresh the light emitting element. The number of refresh operations per second is
called the "refresh rate", and is expressed in hertz (Hz).
S-Video images
A video signal which has the luminance component and color component separated in order
to provide better image quality.
It refers to images which consist of two independent signals: Y (luminance signal), and C
(color signal).
SDTV
An abbreviation for Standard Definition Television. It refers to standard television systems
which do not satisfy the conditions for High-Definition Television.
sRGB
An international standard for color intervals that was formulated so that colors which are
reproduced by video equipment can be handled easily by computer operating systems (OS)
and the Internet.
SVGA
A type of image signal with a resolution of 800 (horizontal) x 600 (vertical) dots which is
used by IBM PC/AT-compatible computers (DOS/V computers).
SXGA
A type of image signal with a resolution of 1280 (horizontal) x 1024 (vertical) dots which is
used by IBM PC/AT-compatible computers (DOS/V computers).
Synchronization
(Sync.)
The signals output from computers have a specific frequency. If the projector frequency does
not match this frequency, the resulting images will not be of a good quality. The process of
matching the phases of these signals (the relative position of the crests and troughs in the
signal) is called "synchronization". If the signals are not synchronized, problems such as
flickering, blurriness and horizontal interference can occur.
Tracking
The signals output from computers have a specific frequency. If the projector frequency does
not match this frequency, the resulting images will not be of a good quality. The process of
matching the frequency of these signals (the number of crests in the signal) is called
“tracking”. If tracking is not carried out correctly, wide vertical stripes will appear in the
projected images.
UXGA
A type of image signal with a resolution of 1600 (horizontal) x 1200 (vertical) dots which is
used by IBM PC/AT-compatible computers (DOS/V computers).
VGA
A type of image signal with a resolution of 640 (horizontal) x 480 (vertical) dots which is
used by IBM PC/AT-compatible computers (DOS/V computers).
XGA
A type of image signal with a resolution of 1,024 (horizontal) x 768 (vertical) dots which is
used by IBM PC/AT-compatible computers (DOS/V computers).
