RuncoCare™ Limited Warranty Coverage
Runco warrants its products to be free from defects in material and workmanship during the warranty period provided below. If
a product proves to be defective in material or workmanship during the warranty period, Runco will repair the product, replace
the product with a substantially similar new or like-new product, or refund a prorated share of the purchase price (calculated
based on the remainder of the warranty period and the then-current, most-recent MSRP2 of a similar product), if repair or
replacement of the product is determined by Runco to not be feasible.
Length of RuncoCare™ Warranty Period
PR
Runco products are warranted for two (2) years from the date of shipment from Runco. Lamps are warranted six (6) months
from the date of shipment or 1000 hours of use, whichever comes first. A replacement lamp is warranted for the remaining
portion (if any) of the original warranty period or ninety (90) days from the date it was shipped to you, whichever is longer. All
other accessories, which include but are not limited to cables, remotes, carrying cases, lens cap and other peripherals sold
with the Runco product, are warranted for ninety (90) days from the date of shipment.
RuncoCare™ Eligibility
This Limited Warranty is valid only in the country where the Product was originally purchased and for the buyer who originally
purchased the covered product from the authorized Runco dealer or distributor. This warranty is not transferable; it is not valid
for any subsequent buyer (if any). You may be required to provide proof of purchase in order to receive warranty services.
1. Runco may update this list of products excluded from this warranty from time to time at Runco’s sole discretion, but updates will
not apply on a retroactive basis.

RuncoCare™ Standard Claim Procedure
• In the event of a product defect, please follow the claim procedure provided below:
A. Register your product if you have not yet done so. Visit http://www.runco.com/support/product-registration/ to
register the product.
B. Contact your original authorized dealer or distributor who sold the product.
C. The dealer/distributor will contact Runco Technical Support via email at support@runco.com or via phone at 1-80023-RUNCO (1-800-237-8626).
• The dealer/distributor will provide to Runco proof of purchase, serial number, product model number, description of the
problem and any troubleshooting steps already attempted.

Y
• Runco’s technical support staff will attempt to assist the dealer/distributor in troubleshooting any technical issues that might
be causing the product to malfunction. If Runco is unable to resolve the problem through troubleshooting, a Return Material
Authorization (RMA) number will be issued for the exchange of the defective product if it is determined that the claim is
covered by the warranty. Once an RMA has been created, RMA status is available at serviceorders@runco.com.
• If an RMA is issued, the dealer or customer will need to return the defective product to the Runco repair depot location
specified by the Runco technical support representative. The dealer or customer will need to properly package the defective
product in a suitable shipping container consisting of the product only, and not include any accessories (e.g., cables,
remotes, carrying cases, lens, lens cap and other peripherals). Boxes may be purchased from a Runco technical support
representative.
• The dealer or customer is responsible for paying freight charges and insurance to ship the defective product to the Runco
repair depot location. If there are any shipping damages, the dealer or customer will need to address and resolve any
shipping damage claims directly with the shipping company.
• Runco will not accept a returned product unless an RMA has been issued by Runco.
• For in-warranty repairs, Runco will pay freight charges to return the repaired/replacement product to the dealer/distributor
from the Runco repair depot. For select countries or geographies Runco will ship via an economy express service. Return
delivery time and availability may vary based on origin and destination, and Runco is unable to deliver to PO Box and FPO
Box addresses.
PR
• Note: in the 48 contiguous United States, other options for on-site service or advance exchange for the product may apply,
if you purchased the Runco PremierCare™ Service Plan.
What to Include with Your Return
1. Return only the defective product with the lamp (if applicable).
2. Runco will not be responsible for returning or replacing any accessories (e.g., cables, remotes, carrying cases, lens, lens
cap and other peripherals sold with the Runco product) that are returned with the defective product.
3. Repaired or replacement products will be shipped with a lamp (if applicable) but without any accessories.
RuncoCare™ Warranty Exclusions
This Limited Warranty does not include and is limited by the following:
1. Products not purchased from an authorized Runco dealer
2. Rental costs incurred by the customer in the event of product defect or failure

regular cleaning of the product
K. Opening the product and/or tampering with internal circuitry
L. Products lost, stolen or discarded
M. Any damage or dissatisfaction associated with latent images, “burnin,” or any other damage determined by Runco to
be the result of customer use patterns
N. Any other cause, which does not relate to a product defect in material or workmanship
5. Removal, installation, and set-up service charges are excluded from the warranty.
6. Black uniformity issues or other LCD issues associated with usage outside the Runco recommended guidelines and
specifications for the product.
PR
7. Bright or dark sub pixels that are characteristic of LCD technology and considered by Runco to be acceptable and within
Runco’s manufacturing specifications.
Specifically, it is not uncommon for one or more sub pixels to become bright or dark during or after the manufacturing
process. A bright sub pixel is one that remains in the on position, and a dark sub pixel is one that appears black or off. The
sub pixels are usually hard to see and will not detract from the display quality or usability at normal viewing distance. The
following are Runco’s criteria for identifying bright or dark sub pixels that would be considered unacceptable: a) the
number of bright or dark sub pixels; b) the location of the bright or dark sub pixels; c) the color of the bright sub pixels; and
d) the Runco model size. If sub pixels have been identified as unacceptable by Runco the LCD will be deemed faulty and
will be replaced if reported within the warranty period.
Other Terms and Conditions
1. If the defective product is not properly packaged and is damaged in transit during its return to Runco, you may be invoiced
for either the repair costs, if repairable, or the MSRP of a replacement product and shipping costs incurred by Runco.
2. The repaired or replaced product will assume the remainder of your original product’s warranty term or 90 days from the
date the repaired or replaced product is shipped, whichever is longer.
3. If a replacement product is sent, the replacement becomes the property of the customer and the defective product
becomes the property of Runco.

any way, such as power supply cord or plug is damaged, liquid has been spilled or objects have fallen into the apparatus,
the apparatus has been exposed to rain or moisture, does not operate normally, or has been dropped.
15. The +12V trigger only outputs 12Vdc signal for triggering. Do not connect to any other power input or output. This could
cause damage to this unit.

Introduction
Elegant and electrifying, the LightStyle™ Series LS-HB/LS-HB Ultra Home Theater
Projector is Runco’s first-ever 1080p projector designed for both performance and
esthetics. Where sleek design encompasses incredible performance, this stylish
combination of legendary Runco engineering and impactful design yield a powerhouse
that elevates the bar for affordable home theater projection.
Designed inside and out by Runco’s award-winning engineering and design team, the
LS-HB incorporates Runco’s proprietary engineering, advanced features and
performance enhancements to achieve an elevated home theater experience.

The LS-HB is equipped with a precision optics package offering zoom, focus and lens
shift controls and a throw range of 1.89:1 to 2.40:1. For installations requiring shorter
throw distances, the LS-HB is optionally available with a lens that offers a throw range of
1.59:1 to 1.86:1. For installations requiring long throw distances, the LS-HB Ultra is
equipped with a lens that offers a throw range of 2.40:1 to 4.00:1.
To ensure a perfect fit in any room at any time, the LS-HB incorporates the ISF™ (Imaging
Science Foundation) calibration suite for optimal performance in various rooms and
lighting conditions. These calibration tools feature day and night calibration memory
settings, individual sharpness and noise reduction controls, programmable image memory
selection keys, built-in test patterns and a dark room-optimized remote.
Runco’s advanced ViVix™ digital video processing enhances the LS-HB picture quality
and provide artifact-free scaling. Rounding out this impressive projector are discrete input
source, aspect ratio and power on/off, as well as an RS-232 interface for seamless
integration with automation control systems.
PR
For uncompromised widescreen reproduction of movies originally filmed in the
CinemaScope™ 2:35:1 format, the LS-HB can also be paired with one of Runco’s
award-winning anamorphic lens solutions. Through an ingenious combination of software,
electronics and precision anamorphic optics, the Runco anamorphic lens system
maintains constant image height on the screen just as in a movie theater. When a viewer
transitions from 1.78:1 (16:9) program material to superwide 2.35:1, the image simply
gets wider while image height is maintained. The projection system is able to use the full
pixel array, thereby producing a 2.35:1 image with enhanced resolution and increased
brightness. No resolution or image area is lost to those black bars that contain no picture
information.
Note
An anamorphic lens requires the use of a 2.35:1 (or similar aspect ratio),
“superwide” format screen.

Notes on Batteries
• Do not mix an old battery with a new one or different types of batteries.
• If you will not use the remote control for a long time, remove the batteries to avoid
damage from battery leakage.
• Do not expose batteries to excessive heat such as from sunshine, fire or the like.
PR
• In most situations, you can simply point the remote control at the screen which will
reflect the IR signal from the remote back toward the IR receiver on the projector. In
some cases, however, ambient conditions may prevent this. If so, point the remote
control at the projector and try again.
• If the effective range of the remote control decreases, or it stops working, replace the
batteries with new ones.
• The remote control may fail to operate if the infrared remote sensor is exposed to bright
sunlight or fluorescent lighting.

Installation
In general, minimize or eliminate light sources directed at the screen. Contrast ratio in your
images will be noticeably reduced if light directly strikes the screen, such as when a shaft
of light from a window or floodlight falls on the image. Images may then appear washed
out and less vibrant.
Ambient Light
Throw distance is the distance measured from the front of the projector to the screen.
This is an important calculation in any projector installation as it determines whether or not
you have enough room to install your projector with a desired screen size and if your
image will be the right size for your screen.
Throw Distance
EL
IM
IN
A
R
Y
You can quickly estimate the throw distance by taking the width of the screen and
multiplying it by the lens throw ratio; see Figure 3-2. The result of this calculation tells you
roughly how far back the projector should be positioned from the screen in order to
project a focused image large enough to fill the screen.

Vertical and Horizontal ➤
Position
Proper placement of the projector relative to the screen will yield a rectangular,
perfectly-centered image that completely fills the screen.
Ideally, the projector should be positioned perpendicular to the screen and in such a way
that the lens center is aligned with either the top or bottom edge of the screen area, and
centered horizontally. See Figure 3-3.

Vertical Lens Shift — LS-HB: The LS-HB provides up to 25% of upward vertical
lens shift and up to 60% of downward vertical lens shift. For example, with a 100 x
56 inch (1.78:1) screen, you can shift the image up to 14.00 inches (0.36 meters) above or
33.60 inches (0.85 meters) below the screen center.

1. With no vertical lens shift, the lens center and screen center are
aligned with each other.
Note
2. Vertical shift limits are percentages of the screen height.
In rear-screen applications where space behind the projector is limited, a mirror may be
used to fold the optical path, as shown in Figure 3-5. The position of the projector and

Tip
For best performance, always use “first-surface” mirrors in your
rear-projection installation (as opposed to conventional,
“second-surface” mirrors with the reflective surface behind a transparent
substrate such as glass or acrylic).
First-surface mirrors provide a strict reflection without the “ghosting”
effect seen with a second surface mirror, where a faint secondary
reflection could be observed coming from the front surface of the glass.
Other Considerations ➤
Other considerations and tips that can help improve your installation:
• Keep the ambient temperature constant and below 35°C (95°F). Keep the projector
away from heating and/or air conditioning vents. Changes in temperature may cause
drifts in the projector circuitry, which may affect performance.
• Keep the projector away from devices that radiate electromagnetic energy such as
motors and transformers. Common sources of these include slide projectors,
speakers, power amplifiers and elevators.

Mounting the LS-HB
There are several methods for mounting the projector. Depending on your chosen
installation, one method may be more suitable than another.
Floor Mounting (Upright) ➤
For fixed installations, and for those that want the projector out of sight or have a limited
space for projector and audience, you can invert the LS-HB and suspend it from the
ceiling using a specially-designed ceiling mount fixture.
Y
Ceiling Mounting ➤
(Inverted)
In typical front and rear screen installations, the projector can be mounted to a secure and
level surface such as a table or cart. Carts are useful when moving a projector during a
presentation or from site to site. If possible, lock the wheels when it’s in position to prevent
it from being moved during a presentation.
For ceiling installations, use Runco-approved mounting hardware
and M4 screws with a maximum screw depth of 10 mm (0.39 inch).
EL
IM
IN
A
R
Note
Install the ceiling mount kit according to the instructions provided with it.
If you are ceiling-mounting an LS-HB with a movable anamorphic lens: Perform
these additional steps to secure the plate Security Hooks to the ceiling (refer to Attaching
the Security Hooks on page 28).
1. Install ceiling hooks (not supplied) into the ceiling directly above the Plate Hooks. The
ceiling hooks should be small enough to accept a Chain End but strong enough when
installed to each support 40 pounds or more.
2. Attach a Chain End to the Chain and then connect it to one of the ceiling hooks.
PR
3. Cut the Chain to a length equal to or slightly greater than the distance between the
ceiling hook and the corresponding Plate Hook.
Installing the Projector in ➤
an Enclosure
4. Attach a Chain End to the other end of the Chain. Then, use the Chain to connect the
ceiling hook and the Plate Hook.
5. Repeat Steps 2 through 4 for the other ceilling hook/Plate Hook pair.
The projector can also be inverted and placed in an enclosure above and behind the
viewing area. Install four feet on the inside bottom surface of the enclosure on which the
projector can rest. A variety of materials can be used for this purpose (for example, rubber
crutch tips or turntable feet).

If the screen is significantly higher or lower than the projector, you can also tilt the
projector at a slight angle. In a ceiling installation, you do this by adjusting the ceiling
mount.

Connections to the
LS-HB
Proceed as follows to connect the LS-HB to your video sources, external controller(s) – if
present – and AC power.
When connecting your equipment:
• Use the correct signal cables for each source.
• For best performance and to minimize cable clutter, use high-quality cables that are
only as long as necessary to connect two devices. (Don’t use a 20-foot cable when a
6-foot cable will suffice.)
Using a flat-blade screwdriver, loosen the two
screws holding the rear compartment cover
in place.

Set Trigger Output to “Letterbox”: The LS-HB anamorphic lens solution maintains
constant image height independent of the aspect ratio, while using the full display
resolution of the projector. It accomplishes this by moving the anamorphic lens in front of
the primary lens when widescreen material is being viewed. When the viewer transitions
back to 16:9 or 4:3 source material, the anamorphic lens moves out of the light path.
Proceed as follows to confirm that the +12V trigger output to which the lens transport is
connected is configured for proper operation.

7. Select the Letterbox aspect ratio to move the anamorphic lens into position, if it isn’t
already. To do this, press the aspect ratio (
) button repeatedly (refer to LS-HB
Remote Control on page 10).
Adjusting the Lens Position:
1. Adjust the vertical position and tilt of the lens so that the projector beam is passing
through the center of the lens and any residual pincushion distortion is about the
same at the top and bottom of the image. This typically results in the anamorphic lens
being below the center of the primary lens and tilted slightly downward.
PR
2. Tighten the knobs.
Note
There may be some pincushion distortion even after the lens is
properly adjusted, especially at shorter throw distances. If this is the
case, Runco recommends that you slightly over-scan the image
into the screen frame area to mask the distortion.
3. Adjust the rotation of the Lens Transport Assembly so that the left and right sides of
the image are an equal distance from their respective screen borders.
4. Tighten the Pivot Screw and the four mounting screws holding the transport to the
Attachment Plate.
5. For optimum multiple aspect ratio performance, adjust the projector’s zoom so that a
1.85:1 aspect ratio movie is just masked by the top and bottom of the screen border
when the anamorphic lens is not in front of the primary lens. This way 1.85:1, 16:9

Color Space: Select Color Space from the Advanced menu to choose the color space of
the source signal for HDMI, RGB, and component connections.
• The default setting, Auto, functions as follows:
• HDMI: If the Auxiliary Video Information (AVI) infoframe contains color space and/or
range data, the LS-HB uses that information. Otherwise, for RGB sources, the
LS-HB uses the RGB-Video color space. For component SDTV and EDTV
resolutions, REC601 is used. For other component video resolutions, REC709 is
used.
• RGB: If Hsync or Vsync signals are present, the LS-HB uses the RGB-PC color
space. Otherwise, REC601 is used for SDTV and EDTV sources, and REC709 for
all other sources.
• Component: For SDTV and EDTV resolutions, the LS-HB uses the REC601 color
space. For all other resolutions REC709 is used.
In most cases, the Auto setting determines the correct color space to use. If it does not,
you can force the LS-HB to use a specific color space. Choose one of the following:
• REC709 sets the color space matrix to that defined in ITU-R BT.709.
• REC601 sets the color space matrix to that defined in ITU-R BT.601.
• RGB-PC uses RGB color space and sets black at 0,0,0 RGB and white at
255,255,255 RGB, assuming an 8-bit image.
• RGB-Video uses RGB color space and sets black at 16,16,16 RGB and white at
235,235,235, assuming an 8-bit image, to correspond to the luminance values defined
in digital component standards.

Gamma: Select Gamma from the Advanced menu to choose a DLP de-gamma curve.
Used correctly, the Gamma control can improve contrast while maintaining good details
for blacks and whites.
If excess ambient light washes out the image and it becomes difficult or impossible to see
details in dark areas, lower the gamma setting to compensate. This improves contrast
while maintaining good details for blacks. Conversely, if the image is washed out and
unnatural, with excessive detail in black areas, increase the setting.
• 2.5 sets the gamma to a 2.5 power law.
• 2.2 sets the gamma to a 2.2 power law.
• Video is similar to 2.2 gamma but differs in dark areas of the image to correspond to
the function that video cameras use to create images.
• 2.0 sets the gamma to a 2.0 power law. This is the default setting.
DLP Frame Rate: Select DLP Frame Rate from the Advanced menu to choose the
output frame rate. You can have the LS-HB automatically determine the optimum frame
rate, or you can force it to use a specific frame rate.
If PIP is active, the LS-HB converts the PIP source frame rate to the
same frame rate as the main source.
PR
Note
• The default setting, Auto, frame locks to the main source if it has a vertical refresh rate
of between 48 and 62Hz. Vertical refresh rates of from 24 to 31Hz are doubled. Frame
rates between 31 and 48Hz and greater than 62Hz are converted to 60Hz.
• Select 48Hz to force the output frame rate to 48Hz. Use this setting to eliminate 2:3
pull-down judder with 60Hz film-based sources.
• 50Hz and 60Hz force the output frame rate to 50Hz and 60Hz respectively.
SatCo: SatCo controls the lamp waveform and affects the output image as follows:
• Off (Red Boost): Reduced yellow and white, slightly increased red.
• Low (White Boost): Increased yellow and red.
• High (White Boost): Increased yellow and white. This is the default setting.
Adaptive Contrast: Adaptive Contrast enhancement expands the light and dark portions
of an output image according to the mean luminance of the input image.

• Gain: Use the Gain controls to correct color imbalances in the bright areas of the
image. A good way to do this is to use a test pattern consisting mostly of solid white
areas, such as an 80 IRE “window” pattern. If the white areas contain traces of red,
green or blue, decrease the Gain for that color.
• Offset: Use the Offset controls in the RGB Adjust sub-menu to correct color
imbalances in the dark areas of the image. A good way to do this is to use a test
pattern consisting mostly of dark gray areas, such as a 30 IRE “window” pattern. If the
gray areas contain traces of red, green or blue, decrease the Offset for that color.
The Gain controls increase or decrease the full-scale input range; the Offset controls
shift the entire range, resulting in a change in brightness.

• V Position: This control adjusts the vertical position of the image within the designated
image area, up to 25 per cent of the image height up or down.
• H Position: This control adjusts the horizontal position of the image within the
designated image area, up to 25 per cent of the image width left or right.
• Phase (RGB or Component sources): This control adjusts the phase of the pixel
sampling clock relative to the incoming signal. Adjust the phase when an RGB or
Component image still shows shimmer or “noise” after Tracking has been optimized.
Tip
Adjust the Phase after adjusting Tracking (see below). If some
shimmer from a video or HDTV source persists, use the Noise
Reduction controls (described on page page 57) to remove
high-frequency noise from the signal.
For best results, use a good test pattern such as a smooth gray consisting of a clear
pattern of black and white pixels, or a similar “half on, half off” graphic image. Adjust the
slidebar until the image stabilizes and each pixel is clearly defined. You may notice that
you can stabilize the image at more than one point. Use either setting in such cases.
• Tracking (RGB or Component sources): Tracking determines the frequency of the
pixel sampling clock, indicated by the number of incoming pixels per line, so that all
pixels generated by a particular source are sampled.
Steady flickering or several soft vertical stripes or bands across the entire image
indicates poor pixel tracking. Proper pixel tracking helps ensure that the image quality
Runco LS-HB/LS-HB Ultra Installation/Operation Manual

is consistent across the screen, that aspect ratio is maintained and that pixel phase
(see above) can be optimized.
• Sync Level (Component sources only): Select Sync Level to adjust the voltage level
of the LS-HB Sync signal detection circuitry.
Sync Level adjustment is occasionally necessary when a DVD player or HDTV source
signal drops “below black” (for example, during scenes with explosions or when
subtitles are present) and causes the projector to temporarily lose sync. If the Sync
Level from the source is persistently too low, the projector won’t sync with the source

Trigger 1: Select Trigger 1 from the Control menu to specify when the Trigger 1 port
outputs 12 volts. There is a three-second delay before activation to prevent operation
while selecting an aspect ratio.
• Lamp causes the port to output 12 volts whenever the lamp is on.
• 16:9 causes the port to output 12 volts whenever the 16:9 aspect ratio is chosen.
• Letterbox causes the port to output 12 volts whenever the Letterbox aspect ratio is
chosen. The output stops if PIP is enabled (PIP source is set to anything other than off).
Choose this setting if your projector is equipped with a movable anamorphic
lens.
• 4:3 causes the port to output 12 volts whenever the 4:3 aspect ratio is chosen. The
output stops if PIP is enabled (PIP source is set to anything other than off).
• 4:3 Narrow causes the port to output 12 volts whenever the 4:3 Narrow aspect ratio is
chosen. The output stops if PIP is enabled (that is, the PIP source is set to anything
other than off).

4. Type ky or op followed by a command from among those listed in Table 6-1 or
Table 6-2 and press <Enter>. For example, to change the aspect ratio to Letterbox,
type op aspect = 1<Enter>.
Serial commands to the LS-HB take the following form:
• Commands are in ASCII format.
• Spaces and tabs can be used to improve readability and are ignored by the projector.
6.2
Serial Command
Syntax
• All commands must end with a carriage return (ASCII hex 0D) to signify that the
projector can now read and execute the command.
• Commands are not case-sensitive.
PR
The LS-HB supports two types of commands: key commands and operation commands.
Key commands mimic pressing a button on the remote control. Operation commands tell
the projector exactly what to do.
All commands start with 2 letters:
ky for key commands.
op for operations commands.
The syntax for key commands is simple:
Key Commands
ky <keyname>[CR]
Some key command examples:
ky menu[CR]
Bring up or cancel menu display.
ky mem.sw[CR]
Switch to next user memory.
ky asp.16.9[CR]
Apply 16:9 aspect ratio.
The response from the projector for key commands will be the same command in
UPPERCASE.
Input: ky mem.sw[CR]
Response: KY MEM.SW [CR]

Operations Commands ➤
Operations commands allow more flexible and direct control of the projector. The syntax
for operations commands is as follows:
op <operation> <command>[CR]
(Precede <operation> and <command> with a space.)
The command type can be one of 5 functions:
Operations Control Commands
Function
Command
Action on unit
Set
= <value>
Makes the unit take that value.
Get
?
Asks what the current value is.
Increment
+
Adds 1 to the current value.
Decrement
-
Subtracts 1 from the current value.
(none)
Performs an action such as a reset.
Execute
80
Runco LS-HB/LS-HB Ultra Installation/Operation Manual
Serial Communications
Table 6-2 lists the valid operations commands. For all but Execute functions, the response
from the projector is the command and “= <value>” where <value> is the current value or
“NA” if the value is not available. For Execute functions the response is the same
command. All responses are in UPPERCASE.
Some operations command examples:
Input: op bright ? [CR]
Response: OP BRIGHT = 100 [CR]
Input: op bright + [CR]
Y
Response: OP BRIGHT = 101 [CR]
Input: op bright = 127 [CR]
Input: op bright - [CR]
EL
IM
IN

R
Response: OP BRIGHT = 127 [CR]

Input: op resync [CR]
Response: OP RESYNC [CR]
Input: op sharp.mode = 1 [CR]
Response: OP SHARP.MODE = 1 [CR]
Input: op sharp.simple = 50 [CR]
Response: OP SHARP.SIMPLE = NA [CR]
Input: op sharp.simple ? [CR]
PR
Response: OP SHARP.SIMPLE = NA [CR]
The last three commands show what happens when a control is grayed out. In this case,
the sharpness mode was set to advanced (value = 1) and then the simple sharpness slider
was attempted to be adjusted and queried. The response was “NA” or not available.

If an errcode ? command returns one of the following values, you have encountered a
likely system error requiring the attention of a qualified service technician. Try resetting the
projector by powering it off, allowing it to cool and powering it on again. Refer to Table 6-3
and contact your dealer if the problem persists.
The specific code number identifies the source of the error detected, and is particularly
useful in cases where the projector is far away. For example, the code “7” means that
Fan 1 has failed.
