Maintenance
Cleaning the Projector
Clean the projector frequently to prevent dust from settling on the surface.
A dirty lens may ruin the quality of the projected image.
Caution
z The main unit is very hot immediately after turning off the projector. Wait until the projector cools down sufficiently (approx. 5 minutes) before cleaning the projector. Otherwise, you may get burned or injured.
z Before cleaning the projector, be sure to remove the power plug from the AC outlet.
Otherwise, electric shock or fire may result.
Wipe the projector's main unit softly with a soft cloth.
If the projector is heavily soiled, soak the cloth in water with a small amount of detergent in
it, squeeze the cloth very well, and then wipe the projector with it. After cleaning, wipe the
projector with a dry cloth.
Caution
z Never use volatile cleaning liquid or benzine, as these may damage the finish of the
projector. When using a chemical dust cloth, make sure to read the instructions thoroughly.
z When cleaning the projector's lens, use a commonly available air blower or lens
cleaning paper. The lens surface is easily damaged, so do not use a hard cloth or tissues.
MAINTENANCE
When Not Used for an Extended Period of Time
Be sure to attach the lens cap on the lens and store in the supplied carrying bag.
116
Cleaning and Replacing the Air Filter
An air filter is installed in the air intake vent on the bottom of the main body to protect the
internal lens and mirror from dust. Should the air filter become clogged with dust, the projector may be damaged since it will block the air flow into the projector and raises the internal temperature of the projector.
Caution
z The main unit is very hot immediately after turning off the projector. Wait until the projector cools down sufficiently (approx. 5 minutes) before cleaning the projector. Otherwise, you may get burned or injured.
z Before cleaning or replacing the air filter, be sure to remove the power plug from the
AC outlet. Otherwise, electric shock or fire may result.
z Do not insert any object into the projector through the air filter opening. You may suffer
electric shock or injury due to the high-voltage parts or rotating parts.
Cleaning the Air Filter
Turn the projector upside down, remove the cover by pushing the latch, remove the air filter, and clean it with a vacuum cleaner.
When cleaning dust off the side exhaust vent and the bottom air intake vent, bring the vacuum cleaner nozzle close to them directly.
z Clean the air filter frequently.
z After cleaning the air filter, install it by following the removal steps 1 to 5 in reverse.

Glossary
6-axis color adjust (P105)
Aspect (P55, 71, 88)
The color adjustment function for an
advanced user. You can adjust color balance
and color level for 6 axis of RGB (red/green/
blue) and CMY (cyan/magenta/yellow) of the
projected image to make a fine color adjustment. You can perform the 6-axis color
adjustment in the image adjustment menu.
The aspect ratio is the ratio of the horizontal
(longer) dimension to the vertical (shorter)
dimension of a screen. It is expressed as
"longer dimension : shorter dimension." The
following aspect ratio is normally used:
AdobeRGB (P53, 100)
A color space specification set up by Adobe
systems Incorporated which is applied to
high performance digital cameras, displays
and others. You can project an image with
more accurate color reproduction since Its
has wider color gamut than sRGB. In SX6, if
you select [AdobeRGB] in the [Image mode]
setting, the projector can project the bestquality image conforming to the AdobeRGB
Standard. Please be aware that color of the
projected image may vary with that of the
original image if you project an AdobeRGB
compatible image in sRGB mode or project
an sRGB compatible image in AdobeRGB
mode.
Analog PC (P25, 34, 91)
APPENDIX
A signal system used to send analog signal
information of R (red), G (green), and B
(blue). It is a typical system for connecting a
color monitor to a computer. Connect the
analog PC output terminal on the computer
and Input Terminal-1 or Input Terminal-2 on
this projector with a monitor cable. Select
[ANALOG PC-1] for Input Terminal-1 and
[ANALOG PC-2] for Input Terminal-2 at projection.
[4:3]
The aspect ratio widely accepted in the standard screen resolution, for example the traditional television screen and VGA (640 x 480)
and XGA (1024 x 768) in PC. The aspect ratio
for this projector is 4:3.
[5:4]
This aspect ratio is used if you select the resolution such as SXGA (1280X1024) in PC.
The shorter dimension in [5:4] is a little longer
than that in [4:3]. An image with aspect ratio
of 5:4 is properly displayed if you select
[Auto] for [Aspect]; however, the margins are
displayed on both sides of the screen.
[16:9]
The aspect ratio for the high definition or
wide-screen. WXGA (1280 x 768 and 1360 x
768) is used as the aspect ratio close to 16:9
for the wide screen monitor in PC. An image
with aspect ratio of 16:9 is properly displayed
if you select [Auto] for [Aspect]; however, the
margins are displayed at the top and bottom
of the screen.
For the aspect ratio for movie screens, "vista
vision size" and "cinema scope size", etc. are
used.
“Vista vision size”
The aspect ratio close to 16:9. Select [Auto]
or [Wide] for [Aspect]. The black belts are
added at the top and bottom of the image.
“Cinema scope size”
The landscape-oriented aspect ratio of 8:3.
Select [Auto] or [Wide] for [Aspect]. The
black belts are added at the top and bottom
of the image.
130
Component (P25, 62, 90)
Gain (P103)
A signal system used to send a color signal
(C) with it divided into a B-Y color difference
signal and an R-Y color difference signal.
This system can project a better-quality
image as compared with the composite signal system. Connect the component video
terminal on the AV equipment and the Input
Terminal-2 on this projector with a component
cable. Select [COMPONENT] at projection.
A parameter that adjusts the reproduction
range of a brightness signal from black to
white within the image signal to naturally
reproduce it on the screen. The reproducibility of the bright tone is mainly changed. Since
you can adjust the gain for each RGB color in
this projector, you can also adjust colors. The
gain is normally adjusted with the offset.
Composite (P25, 64)
A video signal system used to send a brightness signal (Y) and a color signal (C)
together. Connect the composite output
(RCA) terminal on the AV equipment and the
VIDEO IN terminal on this projector with a
video cable. Select [VIDEO] at projection.
Digital PC (P25, 35)
A signal system used to send digital information of individual display dots. This system is
free from deterioration of image quality
because of no analog conversion. Connect
the DVI output terminal on the computer and
Input Terminal-1 on this projector with a DVI
connection cable. Select [DIGITAL PC] at
projection.
DVI (P35, 46, 63, 68)
A tone adjustment system used during projection of image data. The gamma correction
function works effectively when portions of an
image are obscure because they are too light
or dark.
This projector supports manual gamma correction and dynamic gamma correction
which performs the gamma correction automatically.
HDCP (P63, 68)
An abbreviation of High-bandwidth Digital
Content Protection which is an encryption
technology for copy protection of digital
image signals. In this projector, you can
project digital contents copy-protected with
the HDCP technology. To project the contents, connect the Input Terminal-1 on the
projector and an HDMI terminal or DVI terminal on an AV equipment with a dedicated
cable, and then select [DIGITAL VIDEO] from
the [INPUT] menu.
HDMI (P63, 68)
A digital video signal connection interface for
an AV equipment. Its terminal is more compact than the DVI terminal. It allows to transmit video and audio signals simultaneously.
131
APPENDIX
A digital video signal connection interface for
a computer and AV equipment. This interface
allows digital data to be transmitted without
converting to analog data, assuring high
image quality with no signal degradation. The
DVI-I (integrated) connector can be used to
transmit both an analog video signal and digital video signal.
Gamma Correction (P102, 104)
Memorized Color Correction (P104)
Resolution (P42, 89)
A memorized color is a color in our memory.
The memorized color such as blue for the sky
is more vivid than the real color, so you may
feel colors of a projected image are dull. If
such is the case, enable the memorized color
correction function to make the colors close
to the ones in our memory. You can enable
the memorized color correction function in
the image adjustment menu.
The number of dots (horizontal dots x vertical
dots) that can be displayed on a computer is
called “resolution of display”. Resolution indicates the size of the display area (amount of
information).
Offset (P103)
A parameter that shifts the reproduction
range of a brightness signal from black to
white within an image signal toward the
higher or lower level of brightness. The reproducibility of the dark tone is mainly changed.
Since you can adjust the offset for each RGB
color in this projector, you can also adjust
colors. The offset is normally adjusted with
the gain.
Progressive (P94)
APPENDIX
An image display system used to display the
entire screen per scan. For an interlace signal (video signal) that displays one screen by
two scans (one for odd lines and one for
even lines) is input, progressive processing
is required. When the progressive function is
turned off, one screen is displayed using
image signals per interlace signal, deteriorating the vertical resolution of the image. When
the progressive function is turned on, one
screen is displayed using image signals per
two interlace signals, improving the vertical
resolution of the image. Turn off the progressive function when flickering and horizontal
lines are noticeable on a fast-moving picture.

as the display resolution for the connecting
computer, this projector can project high-resolution images. If your computer does not
have the SXGA+ option, select the maximum
resolution among the selectable options.
sRGB (P53, 100)
An international standard of color representation (color space) which is applied to general
digital cameras, displays and others. In this
projector, if you select [sRGB] in the [Image
mode] setting, the projector can project the
best-quality image conforming to the sRGB
Standard.
S-video (P25, 64, 90)
A signal system (YC separation signal) used
to send a brightness signal (Y) and color signal (C) separately. Connect the S-video terminal on the AV equipment and the S-VIDEO
IN terminal on this projector with an S-video
cable. Select [S-VIDEO] at projection.
Tracking (P91)
To reproduce an image from an analog
image signal, the process to accumulate
image information at the appropriate timing
with reference to the synchronization signal
within the image signal. This process is
called the tracking. This projector can display an image properly by automatically
adjust the tracking with the auto PC adjustment function even if there is a small difference in the synchronization signal from an
analog imaging device.
Video (P25, 64, 90)
An output terminal widely used in an AV
equipment. It is also called as a composite
output terminal (pin terminal or RCA terminal). For more details, refer to "Composite".
