swallowed, contact a physician
immediately.
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.
z Never touch the glass of the lamp with your fingers. Doing so can damage the lamp and
shorten its life.
z 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.
z Lamps are guaranteed for 180 days from the date of purchase or for 500 hours operation,
whichever comes first.
z 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 lamp life differs greatly from lamp to lamp, and is affected
by conditions under which the lamp is used.
z 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.
z 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
z 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.
z Replace the lamp with a special replacement lamp, which should be available from your
original dealer. Use only the lamp type that is specified for this projector.
XJ-S33/S38 Replacement Lamp
YL-3B
XJ-S43/S48 Replacement Lamp
YL-4B
XJ-S53/S58 Replacement Lamp
YL-5B
XJ-S63/S68 Replacement Lamp

z Never place a vase or any other container of water on
top of the projector.
● Never leave a dead battery inside the remote controller for a long time.
A dead battery can leak, which leads to malfunction of and damage to the remote controller.
● Clean with a soft, dry cloth.
When very dirty, use a soft cloth that has been dampened in a weak solution of water and a
mild neutral detergent. Wring all excess water from the cloth before wiping. Never use thinner,
benzine, or any other volatile agent to clean the projector. Doing so can remove its markings
and cause staining of the case.
● Missing Screen Dots
Though this projector is manufactured using the most advanced digital technology available today,
some of the dots on the screen may be missing. This is normal, and does not indicate
malfunction.
● Never subject the projector to strong impact while it is projecting.
If the projector is accidentally subjected to strong impact, the projection image will momentarily
go blank. The image will reappear after some time, but it may be the wrong color or it may be
accompanied by an error message.
If the projected image is the wrong color, re-select the current input source. If this does not
return the projected image to its proper color, use the procedure under “To turn off the
projector” on page E-22 to turn projector power off and then back on again.
If the image reappears with an error message, correct the problem in accordance with the
indicator explanations in the “Troubleshooting” guide on page E-34.
● Keystone Correction and Image Quality
Performing keystone correction causes the image to be compressed before it is projected. This
can result distortion of the image or a loss of image quality. If this happens, change orientation
of the projector and/or screen so it conforms as much as possible to the illustration under
“Setting Up the Projector” on page E-14.
If image quality is the highest priority, turn off auto keystone correction and position the
projector so it is pointed straight at the screen.

Intake vents
z Do not locate any objects near the projector while it is in use. Keep all items at least 30cm
(11.8 inches) away from the intake and exhaust vents.
z The vents become quite hot while the projector is in use. Never touch the vents with your
hands. Also, the areas near the exhaust vents become quite hot. Never locate objects made
of plastic or other heat-sensitive materials near or under the projector. Doing so creates the
risk of deformation and discoloration of the object.
z Avoid placing the projector on a surface that is unstable or prone to vibration. Never place
the projector on top of a carpet, blanket, towel, or other soft material.
z Do not locate the projector where it will be exposed to direct sunlight.
z Avoid locations where there are large amounts of dust and moisture.
z Keep the projector away from speakers, TVs, radios, and other devices that generate
magnetism, as well as from heaters.
z Over time, use of the projector can cause dust and dirt to build up in and around the fan’s
intake vents, which can lead to malfunction of the projector. Be sure to check the intake
vents for dust build up each time before you use the projector. If you see dirt or dust in or
around the intake vents, remove it by wiping with a cloth, etc.
z When positioning the projector, make sure you do so in such a way that the intake vents do
not become blocked. Blocked intake vents can shorten the life of the lamp.
z Airflow from air conditioning equipment can blow the heat being exhausted from the area
around the projector’s lens in a way that causes heat ripples to appear in the projected
image. If this happens, adjust the airflow of the air conditioning equipment or move the
projector.

Projector Basics
When the projector is at an angle to the screen it is projecting on, the projected image may
have different length 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 can cause the corrected image to be smaller than the original
(uncorrected) image, or it can cause distortion of the image. If the projected image
becomes difficult to view, try moving the screen and/or projector so they are oriented close
to the configuration shown under “Setting Up the Projector” on page E-14.
z The projector does not support horizontal keystone correction. The center of the projector’s
lens should be aligned with the horizontal center of the screen (page E-14).
Automatic Keystone Correction
When “On” is selected for the “Option Settings 1
Auto Keystone Correction” setting of the Setup Menu,
the projector will detect the vertical orientation of the
object in the image and adjust its shape automatically
so it appears as a rectangle. The message “Auto
Keystone Corrected.” appears in the center of the
projected image when the projector performs auto
keystone correction.
z The projector’s auto keystone correction range is 0 to +30 degrees. If the surface you are
projecting onto is angled downwards from horizontal, use manual keystone correction to
correct the image.
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.
To use manual keystone correction
1.
Press the [KEYSTONE +] or [KEYSTONE –] key.
2.
Use the [KEYSTONE +] and [KEYSTONE –] keys to correct for keystoning.
3.
To close the setup screen, press the [ESC] key.
z This causes the keystone correction screen to appear on the projected image.
z Correction can be performed for keystoning within ±30°.
