Observe the following safeguards when setting up your
projector.
Caution concerning the lamp unit
■ Potential hazard of glass particles if lamp ruptures. In
case of lamp rupture, contact
your nearest Sharp Authorized Projector Dealer or Service Center for replacement.
See “Replacing the Lamp” on
page 54.
Caution concerning the setup of the projector
■ 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 vents and lens must be cleaned more often. As long as the projector is regularly
cleaned, use in these environments will not
reduce the overall operation life of the unit.
Internal cleaning should only be performed
by a Sharp Authorized Projector Dealer or
Service Center.
When using the projector in high-altitude
areas such as mountains (at altitudes of
approximately 4,900 feet (1,500 meters)
or more)
■ When you use the projector in high-altitude
areas with thin air, set “Fan Mode” to “High”.
Neglecting this can affect the longevity of the
optical system.
Warning about placing the projector in
a high position
■ When placing the projector in a high position,
ensure that it is secured carefully to avoid personal injury caused by the projector falling
down.
Do not subject the projector to hard impact and/or vibration.
■ Protect the lens so as not to hit or damage
the surface of the lens.
Rest your eyes occasionally.
■ Continuously watching the screen for long
hours will cause eye strain. Be sure to occasionally rest your eyes.
Do not set up the projector in places exposed to direct sunlight or bright light.
Avoid locations with extremes of temperature.
■ Position the screen so that it is not in direct
sunlight or room light. Light falling directly on
the screen washes out the colors, making
viewing difficult. Close the curtains and dim
the lights when setting up the screen in a
sunny or bright room.
■ The operating temperature of the projector is
from 41°F to 95°F (+5°C to +35°C).
■ The storage temperature of the projector is
from –4°F to 140°F (–20°C to +60°C).
Caution regarding placing of the projector
■ Allow at least 11 13/16 inches (30 cm) of space
between the exhaust vent and the nearest
wall or obstruction.
■ Be sure that the intake vent and the exhaust
vent are not obstructed.
■ If the cooling fan becomes obstructed, a protection circuit will automatically put the projector into standby mode to prevent overheat
damage. This does not indicate a malfunction. (See pages 52 and 53.) Remove the projector power cord from the wall outlet and wait
at least 10 minutes. Place the projector where
the intake and exhaust vents are not blocked,
plug the power cord back in and turn on the
projector. This will return the projector to the
normal operating condition.
■ Place the projector on a level site within the
adjustment range (8 degrees) of the adjustment foot.
■ After the projector is purchased, a faint smell
from the vent may appear when the power is
first turned on. This is normal and is not a
malfunction. It will disappear after the projector is used for a while.
Do not block the exhaust and intake
vents.

06.1.10, 3:09 PM
Caution regarding usage of the projector
■ When using the projector, be sure not to subject it to hard impact and/or vibration, as this
can result in damage. Take extra care with
the lens. Before moving the projector, be sure
to unplug the power cord from the wall outlet,
and disconnect any other cables connected
to it.
■ Do not carry the projector by holding the lens.
■ When storing the projector, re-attach the lens
cap. (See page 11).
■ Do not expose the projector to direct sunlight
or place next to heat sources. Doing so may
affect the cabinet color or cause deformation
of the plastic cover.
Other connected equipment
■ When connecting a computer or other audiovisual equipment to the projector, make the
connections AFTER unplugging the power
cord of the projector from the AC outlet and
turning off the equipment to be connected.
■ Please read the operation manuals of the projector and the equipment to be connected for
instructions on how to make the connections.
Using the projector in other countries
■ The power supply voltage and the shape of
the plug may vary depending on the region
or country you are using the projector in.
When using the projector overseas, be sure
to use an appropriate power cord for the country you are in.
Introduction
■ When turning off the projector, the cooling fan
runs to decrease the internal temperature for
a while. Unplug the power cord after the cooling fan stops. The period the cooling fan runs
will vary, depending on the circumstances and
the internal temperature.
Temperature monitor function
■ If the projector starts to overheat due to setup
problems or blockage of the air vents, “
” and
“
” will illuminate 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 blink, and after
a 90-second cooling-off period the projector will
enter standby mode. Refer to “Maintenance Indicators” on page 52 for details.
Info
• 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. This does not indicate malfunction.
• Do not unplug the power cord during projection or cooling fan operation. This can cause
damage due to rise in internal temperature,
as the cooling fan also stops.

HDMI is a new specialized interface capable of delivering a video and audio signal to
the terminal using just one cable. Since this projector does not support an audio signal
by itself, use an amplifier or other audio device.
For video connection, use a cable that conforms to HDMI standards. Using cables that
do not conform to HDMI standards may result in a malfunction.

Note
• HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) is a digital AV interface that can deliver a high-definition video signal, multi-channel audio signal, and bi-directional control signal all in just one cable.
• Because it is compatible with the HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) system, the
digital video signal does not degrade when transmitted, and a high-quality image with a simple
connection can be enjoyed.
• When a DVI to HDMI conversion cable is connected to the HDMI terminal, a proper picture may not
be displayable.

• About the Lamp Indicator
The lamp indicator illuminates to indicate the
status of the lamp.
Green: The lamp is on.
Blinking in green: The lamp is warming up
or shutting down.
Red:The lamp is shut down abnormally
or the lamp should be replaced.
• When switching on the projector, a slight flickering of the image may be experienced within
the first minute after the lamp has been illuminated. This is normal operation as the lamp’s
control circuitry is stabilising the lamp output
characteristics. It should not be regarded as
faulty operation.
• If the projector is put into standby mode and
immediately turned on again, the lamp may
take some time to start projection.

Correcting Trapezoidal
Distortion
When the image is projected either from

screen at an angle, the image becomes
distorted trapezoidally. The function for
correcting trapezoidal distortion is
called Keystone Correction.

There are the two types of the Keystone
Correction.
1) The “GEOMETRIC ADJUSTMENT”
method corrects trapezoidal distortion by specifying 4 marks on the

2) The “H & V KEYSTONE” method features corrections to 2 axes (horizontal and vertical) based on numerical
values.

The display disappears.
Note
• When corrections are made with Keystone correction, the changes are saved even if the
power cord is unplugged.
• Since Keystone correction digitally corrects
the signal, resolution may slightly decrease
when it is used. Moiré patterns and line distortions may also be visible in detailed images.
However, this is not a malfunction.
• If you cannot correct trapezoidal distortion with
Keystone correction, change the placement
position of the projector.
• Straight lines and the edges of the displayed
image may appear jagged, when adjusting the
Keystone setting.
• Also read “About Copyrights” on page 37.

About Copyrights
• When using the RESIZE function to select an image size with a different aspect ratio
to a TV program or video image, the image will look different from its original appearance. Keep this in mind while choosing an image size.
• The use of the Resize, Keystone Correction, Subtitle, or Overscan function to compress or stretch the image for commercial purposes/public displays in a café, hotel,
etc. may be an infringement of copyright protected by law for copyright holders. Please
use caution.
• While watching non-widescreen images (4:3), if you use the RESIZE function to fill
the screen or use the Overscan function to change the aspect ratio of a fixed-ratio
input signal, parts of the outer edge of the image will be cut off or distorted. To watch
original images as the producers intended, set RESIZE to “SIDE BAR” and Overscan
to its default setting.

Maintenance
Cleaning the projector
■ Ensure that you have unplugged the power
cord before cleaning the projector.
■ The cabinet as well as the operation panel is
made of plastic. Avoid using benzene or
thinner, as these can damage the finish on the
cabinet.
■ Do not use volatile agents such as insecticides
on the projector.
Do not attach rubber or plastic items to the
projector for long periods.
The effects of some of the agents in the plastic
may cause damage to the quality or finish of the
projector.
■ Wipe off dirt gently with a soft flannel cloth.
■ When the dirt is hard to remove, soak a cloth in
a mild detergent diluted with water, wring the
cloth well and then wipe the projector.
Strong cleaning detergents may discolor, warp
or damage the coating on the projector. Make
sure to test on a small, inconspicuous area on
the projector before use.
Cleaning the lens
■ Use a commercially available blower or lens
cleaning paper (for glasses and camera lenses)
for cleaning the lens. Do not use any liquid type
cleaning agents, as they may wear off the
coating film on the surface of the lens.
■ As the surface of the lens can easily get
damaged, be sure not to scrape or hit the lens.
Cleaning the exhaust and intake vents
■ Use a vacuum cleaner to clean dust from the
exhaust vent and the intake vent.

Info
• If the temperature warning indicator illuminates, and the projector enters standby mode, follow the
possible solutions above and then wait until the projector has cooled down completely before plugging in the power cord and turning the power back on. (At least 10 minutes.)
• If the power is turned off for a brief moment due to power outage or some other cause while using
the projector, and the power supply recovers immediately after that, the lamp indicator will illuminate in red and the lamp may not be lit. In this case, unplug the power cord from the AC outlet,
replace the power cord in the AC outlet and then turn the power on again.
• The cooling fan keeps the internal temperature of the projector constant and this function is controlled automatically. The sound of the cooling fan may change during operation because the fan
speed may change and this is not a malfunction.
• Do not unplug the power cord after the projector has entered standby mode and while the cooling
fan is running. The cooling fan runs for about 90 seconds.

Regarding the Lamp
Lamp
■ It is recommended that the lamp (sold separately) be replaced when the remaining lamp life becomes
5% or less, or when you notice a significant deterioration in the picture and color quality. The lamp life
(percentage) can be checked with the on-screen display. (see page 49)
■ Purchase a replacement lamp of type AN-100LP from your place of purchase, nearest Sharp
Authorized Projector Dealer or Service Center.
Caution Concerning the Lamp
■ This projector utilizes a pressurized mercury lamp. A loud sound may indicate lamp failure. Lamp
failure can be attributed to numerous sources such as: excessive shock, improper cooling, surface
scratches or deterioration of the lamp due to a lapse of usage time.
The period of time up to failure largely varies depending on the individual lamp and/or the condition
and the frequency of use. It is important to note that failure can often result in the bulb cracking.
■ When the lamp replacement indicator and on-screen display icon are illuminated, it is recommended
that the lamp be replaced with a new one immediately, even if the lamp appears to be operating
normally.
■ Should the lamp break, there is also a possibility that glass particles may spread inside of the
projector. In such a case, it is recommended you contact your nearest Sharp Authorized Projector
Dealer or Service Center to assure safe operation.
■ Should the lamp break, the glass particles may spread inside the lamp cage or gas contained in the
lamp may be vented into the room from the exhaust vent. Because the gas in this lamp includes
mercury, ventilate the room well if the lamp breaks and avoid all exposure to the released gas. In case
of exposure to the gas, consult a doctor as soon as possible.
Replacing the Lamp
• Do not remove the lamp unit from the projector right after use. The lamp will be very hot and may
cause burn or injury.
■ Carefully change the lamp by following the instructions described in this section. * If you wish,
you may have the lamp replaced at your nearest Sharp Authorized Projector Dealer or Service
Center.
* If the new lamp does not light after replacement, take your projector to the nearest Sharp Authorized
Projector Dealer or Service Center for repair.
