1. Remove the back lid of the remote control.
2. Check the polarity (+), (-) of the batteries, and set them
correctly, inserting their (-) side first.
• If the battery is inserted from the (+) side first, inserting
the (-) side is difficult because the coil spring end hits
on the battery side. If the battery is forced in this way,
the outer label of the battery may get ripped and it may
cause a short-circuit and heating.
3. Attach the back lid.
Important:
• Use two size-AA batteries (R6).
• Replace the two batteries with new ones when the remote
control is slow to respond.
Removing the batteries from the remote control

Setting up your projector
Setting up the screen
Install the screen perpendicularly to the projector. If the screen can not be installed in such a way, adjust the
projection angle of the projector. (See page 12.)
• Install the screen and projector so that the projector’s lens is placed at the same height and horizontal position of
the screen center.
• Do not install the screen where it is exposed to direct sunlight or lighting. Light directly reflecting on the screen
makes the projected images washed-out and hard to view.
SCREEN SIZE
You can keep the image display area within the screen by setting SCREEN SIZE in the ADVANCED MENU of IMAGE
menu according to the aspect ratio of the actual screen. Select 16:9 when the aspect ratio of the screen is 16:9 or
4:3, and select CINEMA SCOPE (2.35:1) when the aspect ratio is 2.35:1 (CinemaScope).
When setting SCREEN SIZE to CINEMA SCOPE (2.35:1):
• CinemaScope size movies are projected in the full screen.
• Set ASPECT in the FEATURE menu to 16:9 when displaying Vista-size images. In this case, they are squeezed
horizontally.
• When ASPECT in the FEATURE menu is set to AUTO and 480i/p, 576i/p, 720p, or 1080i/p signal is input, the part
for displaying subtitles is not projected. To display subtitles, reset SCREEN SIZE to 16:9 and adjust the image
position using VERTICAL LOCATION in the ADVANCED MENU of the IMAGE menu. (To display the menu on the
screen, adjust SHUTTER(U) in the SIGNAL - USER menu to position the menu.)
Screen size and projection distance
Refer to the following tables to determine the screen size and projection distance.

• The lamp fails to light up on rare occasions. In such a case, wait for a few minutes and then try again.
• Do not cover the lens with the lens cap while the lamp is on.
• After the POWER button is pressed, the image may flicker before the lamp becomes stable. This is not a
product malfunction.
• The STANDARD lamp mode is activated by default whenever the projector is turned on. When the LOW LAMP
MODE has been chosen, the default STANDARD lamp mode is switched to the LOW lamp mode in 1 minute.
• The projector starts warming up when the POWER button is pressed. During the warm-up process, images
may appear dark and no commands are accepted.
• By blinking red, the STATUS indicator indicates that the lamp should be replaced soon. Replace the lamp when
the STATUS indicator blinks red. (See page 43.)
4. Press the ZOOM/FOCUS button on the projector or on the remote control to display “FOCUS”.
5. Adjust with the t or u button to get a fine picture.
• When the ENTER button is pressed while “FOCUS” is displayed, the adjustment mode is switched between
FAST and STEP. When FAST is selected, the speed of focus controlled by the t or u button becomes fast,
and it becomes slow when STEP is selected.
6. Select an input source.
• Press the HDMI/COMPUTER button on the projector or the COMPUTER button on the remote control to select
COMPUTER.
• The input source is switched between COMPUTER, HDMI1 and HDMI2 every time you press the HDMI/
COMPUTER button on the projector.
• Though it may take some time before an image is displayed on the screen depending on the type of the input
signal, such symptom is not a malfunction.
• Images may not be projected in the correct position, depending on the type of the input signal. In such a case,
press the AUTO POSITION button. (See page 24.)
• The projector automatically selects the appropriate signal format. (The selected signal format is displayed on
the INFORMATION menu.)
• You cannot change the input source while the menu is being displayed.
• When COMPUTER is chosen as the source, images supplied from the computer may flicker. Press the t or u
button on the remote control to reduce flicker, if it occurs. (Fine adjustment)
7. Adjust the position of the projector to keep an appropriate projection distance with which images are projected in
their specified sizes.
8. Adjust the position of the projector so that the projector and the screen are perpendicular to each other. (See page
10.)
9. Press the ZOOM/FOCUS button on the projector or on the remote control to display “FOCUS” and then press the
button again to display “ZOOM.”
10.Adjust with the t or u button to get an approximate size.
• When the ENTER button is pressed while “ZOOM” is displayed, the adjustment mode is switched between

• The lamp goes out and the projector goes into a standby mode. In this standby mode, the STATUS indicator
blinks green.
15.Wait about 2 minutes.
• During this period of 2 minutes in the standby mode, the intake fan and exhaust fan rotate to cool the lamp.
• The lamp can’t be lit again for 1 minute after turning off the projector for safety purpose. It will take another 1
minute for the STATUS indicator to go out. If you want to turn on the projector again, wait until the indicator
goes out, and then press the POWER button.
• The air outlet fans rotate faster as the temperature around the projector rises.
• Do not turn off the main power switch or unplug the power cord while the STATUS indicator is blinking. Turning
off the main power switch or unplugging the power cord immediately after use may cause a breakdown.
• Though the fan makes loud sounds during cooling, such symptom is not a malfunction.
16.Turn off the main power switch.
• The POWER indicator will go out.
• If the main power switch should be turned off or the power cord should be unplugged accidentally while either
the air inlet fan or the air outlet fans are operating or the lamp is on, allow the projector to cool down for 10
minutes with the power off. To light the lamp again, press the POWER button. If the lamp doesn’t light up
immediately, repeat pressing the POWER button 2 or 3 times. If it should still fail to light up, replace the lamp.
• Cover the lens with the lens cap to protect it from dust.
• For safety’s sake, unplug the power cord from the outlet.
AUTO POSITION button

1. Display a bright image (such as a full-screen display of the Recycle Bin window).
2. When the screen saver has been enabled, disable it.
3. Press the AUTO POSITION button.
The projector automatically makes optimum positional settings for the input signal.
• If the image is not projected in the correct position even after you press the AUTO POSITION button several
times, change the settings in the SIGNAL menu to put the image in the correct position. (See page 34.)
• When you carry out this procedure with a dark image, the image may be displaced.
When connecting to a notebook computer:
When the projector is connected to a notebook computer, images may not be projected in some cases. In such
cases, set the computer so that it can output signals externally. The setting procedure varies depending on the type
of the computer. See the instruction manual of your computer.
Example of the setting procedure for external output
Press the [Fn] key and any of the keys [F1] to [F12] at the same time. (The key to be pressed depends on the type of
the computer you use.)
Setting of the resolution
If the resolution of the computer doesn’t match with that of the projector, projected images may be obscured. Ensure
that their resolutions are the same (see page 45). For the method to change the output resolution of the computer,
contact the manufacturer of the computer.

Replacing the lamp
This projector is equipped with a lamp to project images. This lamp is a consumable. It may burn out or its brightness
may decrease during use. In such cases, replace the lamp with a new one as soon as possible. Be sure to replace the
lamp with a new lamp sold separately that is exclusive to this projector. Contact your dealer for purchase of the lamp.
Spare lamp
VLT-HC6800LP
Warning:
• Be careful not to drop the lamp fixing screws inside of the projector. Don’t put a metal piece or flammable object
into the projector. Using the projector with any foreign object present inside may result in electric shock or fire.
When you can’t remove the foreign object from the inside, contact your dealer for removal.
• Be sure to install the lamp securely. When the lamp isn’t installed properly, it won’t illuminate. Improper installation
may also result in fire.
• Don’t shake the removed lamp or don’t lift it above your face. Your eyes may be injured by flying or falling glass
fragments.
• Don’t replace the lamp immediately after use because the lamp cover will be very hot. You may get burned. Turn
off the power using the POWER button. After the lamp goes out, wait about two minutes until the intake and
exhaust fans for cooling the lamp stop rotating. Then turn off the main power switch, unplug the power cord, and
wait at least 1 hour to allow the lamp to cool down enough to the touch.
• Do not touch the lamp directly. It may break and cause injury or burn.
Interval of lamp replacement
The recommended interval of lamp replacement is about 4000 hours*1*2 of consecutive use. Such interval differs
depending on the operating environment and may be shorter than 4000 hours*1*2. Decrease in luminescence and/or
color brightness indicates that the lamp needs to be replaced. When the lamp operation time exceeds 3000 hours*1,
the indicator will blink alternately between green and red (while the lamp is lit; when the lamp is not lit, the indicator
will be lit red only) and the lamp replacement message will appear on the screen for one minute everytime the lamp
is turned on. When the lamp has been used for about 3800 hours*1, the replacement message (LAMP EXCHANGE)
will appear on the screen for one minute every 20 hours*1 thereafter. When the lamp operation time exceeds 4000
hours*1*2, the projector automatically shuts off and can’t be used until the lamp is replaced and the lamp
operation time is reset.
*1: Duration when LAMP MODE of the INSTALLATION menu is set to LOW. When it is set to STANDARD, this duration will be
shorted.
*2: When LAMP MODE is set to STANDARD, this duration will be shorted to 2000 hours.
Caution:
• Don’t remove the lamp for any purpose other than replacement. Unnecessary removal of the lamp may result in a
breakdown.
• This projector uses a high-pressure mercury lamp as the light source. The high-pressure mercury lamp may
explode or fail to illuminate permanently because of an impact, scratch, or deterioration through use. The period
of time until explosion or permanent failure to illuminate varies considerably from lamp to lamp, depending on
operation conditions. Therefore, the lamp may explode soon after the start of use.
• The possibility of explosion of the lamp increases if you use it beyond its replacement period. When the instruction
of lamp replacement appears, replace it with a new one immediately even if the lamp is still lighting normally.
• When the high-pressure mercury lamp explodes, glass fragments will scatter inside or outside the lamp box and
the gas charged inside the lamp will diffuse inside or outside the projector. The gas inside the lamp contains
mercury. Be careful not to breathe it or avoid it from entering your eye or mouth. If you should breathe it or if it
should enter your eye or mouth, see a doctor immediately.
• In the event that the high-pressure mercury lamp exploded, glass fragments may have been scattered inside the
projector. Ask your dealer to replace the lamp and to inspect the inside of the projector. When you clean or replace
the lamp by yourself, be sure to hold the handle of the lamp. You may get injured by glass fragments.
• When removing the lamp from the ceiling-mounted projector, use the lamp replacement tray packed with the
projector or option lamp to prevent glass fragments from scattering.
• Be sure to use the lamp exclusive to this projector, VLT-HC6800LP. Use of other lamps may cause a failure of the
projector.
