HT3000 HOST
1 INTRODUCTION
The HT3000 HOST system combines the video signal
processing capacity of the HOST™ system with the reproductive fidelity of the a projector employing DLP™ technology, connecting the two units via optical fibre.
The HOST™ system, ideally placed next to the sources,
is able to acquire and process a very wide range of video
signals, and to send them, via an optical fibre connection,
to the projector.
Its range of inputs (2 Composite Video inputs, 2 S-Video inputs, 4 Component or RGB inputs (3 via Phono/RCA connection & 1 Via BNC connection), 2 graphic RGB inputs,
6 HDMI™ inputs, 1 SDI input, 1 DVI-D input) allow it to be
connected to a wide range of analogue and digital sources:
DVD players, video recorders, satellite and terrestrial receivers, computers, video game consoles, camcorders, etc.
Its image processing system permits optimum reproduction
of a wide range of input signals, from interlaced video to
high definition and digital graphics. Faithful reproduction of
signals at higher resolutions (such as high definition video
and graphics) occurs without loss of information or reduction of image sharpness thanks to the processor’s high
pixel rate signal acquisition capabilities.

Keep the manual for future consultation.
generate heat. Do not place the unit in an area where there
is insufficient space (shelving units, bookshelves, etc.) and
in general avoid placing it in poorly ventilated areas as this
may prevent sufficient cooling.
Never look directly at the projection lamp.
Never look directly at the lamp when it is on as the intense light
may damage your eyes. Take particular care that children cannot
do so.
Take special care regarding movement of the lens.
Do not place objects in the slots on the side of the lens, and
also ensure that horizontal and vertical lens movements are
not impeded by external objects.
Disconnecting the appliance from the power supply.
The device which disconnects the unit from the mains is
the power plug. Ensure that the power cable plugs and the
electrical mains socket outlets are easily accessible during installation operations. Pull the plug, not the cable, to
disconnect the unit from the mains. Use only the specified
power supply. Connect the units to a mains electrical supply
with rated voltage of between 110-240 VAC, 50/60 Hz and
equipped with a protective earth connection. If you are not
sure of your domestic mains rating, contact an electrician.
Take care to avoid overloading the power socket and any
extension leads.
Place the unit on a stable surface.
Place the projector on a stable surface or use the ceiling
mounting bracket provided. Never place the projector on
its side or rear, on the lens or top panel.
ENGLISH
Do not touch internal parts of the units.
Inside the housing there are electrical parts carrying dangerously high voltages and parts operating at high temperature.
Never open the housing. Entrust all servicing and repair work
to an authorised Service Centre. Opening the housing voids
the warranty.
Do not insert objects through the openings in the
unit.
Make sure that no objects are inserted inside the units. If
this should occur, disconnect the unit from the power supply immediately and call an authorised technician.
Power saving.
We advise disconnecting the unit from the power supply when
not in use. In this way you will achieve considerable power savings while at the same time protecting internal electrical parts
from wear.
Changing the fuses.
Before changing the fuse, disconnect the unit from the mains
power supply. The fuse compartment is next to the power
supply connector. Remove the fuse holder with a flat head
screwdriver and replace the fuse. Fit the replacement fuse.
Use only T 5A H fuses for the projector and T3 15A H fuses
for the HOST system.
! ATTENTION:
Do not switch off the HOST system via the front panel
or remove the power without first setting the system
into standby and allowing the unit to complete the
cool down sequence. The HOST and projector are
in constant communication with each other, therefore when switching off the system, both units must
switched off together and vice versa when powering on the system. In the event of a power outage it
is recommended to completely reset the HOST and
projector.
Be careful with cables.
Make certain cables are routed so that people will not be
impeded or tripped up. Keep all cables away from children. Install the unit as close to the wall socket as possible.
Avoid stepping on power cables, make certain they do not
become tangled, and never jerk or tug them; do not expose them to sources of heat, and make sure they do not
become knotted or crimped. If the power cables become
damaged, stop using the system and request the assistance of an authorised technician.
Disconnect the unit from the mains power during electrical
storms and when not in use.
To prevent damage from lightning strikes in the vicinity, disconnect the unit during storms or when the system is going
to be left unused for a long time.
PRODUCT DISPOSAL
This projector is fitted with a pressurised lamp
containing a small amount of mercury. These lamps
may be subject to special disposal regulations due to
environmental considerations. For disposal or recycling information, please contact your local authorities or, if you are located in the USA, the Electronic
Industries Alliance.

systems, used for masking off the projection area to match
the projected image aspect ratio.
The TRIG1 output is activated when the projector is switched
on (blue LED on) and is de-activated when the projector is
in standby mode (red LED on). The TRIG2 output can be
set with the Screen control adjustment in the Aspect menu.
This output is ideally suited for multiple aspect ratio screens
with motorized masking systems.

6 INSTALLATION
• Take care that the cable is not too taught or that it can be
tugged: in addition to disconnecting the connectors, this
may cause damage to them.
POSITIONING THE 2 UNITS
After removing the protective caps from both the fibre connectors and the connectors on the panel, carefully insert
the fibres into the respective connectors matching the numbers marked on each element. Take the greatest care when
handling optical fibres and the connectors.
CONNECTIONS TO VIDEO SOURCES
Connect the cables from the video sources, the serial cable
from an external control device when used and the fibres for
connection to the projector to the back panel of the HOST
system. To get the best performance from your HT3000
HOST system, connect the various signal sources using high
quality cables specific for the video applications concerned.
! WARNING: When using the ceiling mount bracket, the
safety instructions provided with the bracket must be strictly
observed. Placed the projector at the desired distance from
the screen: the size of the projected image depends upon
the distance between the lens and the screen and the zoom
setting. See the SETUP chapter for further details.
Projector Ventilation
“The lamp inside the projector generates a great deal of
heat, thus requiring a continuous flow of air to maintain optimum operating efficiency. The air inlet & outlet are on the
sides of the projector and it is critical that these vents remain free from obstruction. SIM2 recommends a distance
of 20 cm clearance each side. If the projectors is to be
mounted inside a “Hush Box” or a confined space then the
projector must be fed a supply of cool air to maintain good
ventilation. Inadequate ventilation will result in the projector
overheating, this may cause the projector to shut down randomly and will damage the lamp and significantly shorten
the lamp life.”

ENGLISH
The HT3000 HOST system is made up of two separate units
(HOST and HT3000 projector), each of which have a power
cable and are connected to each other by a 20 m long optical fibre cable. Ideally, the HOST system should be placed
on the top of a cabinet. Make sure that the surface it stands
on is stable and that there is sufficient space around it to permit good ventillation (at least 3 cm). Place the projector on a
stable surface or use the optional ceiling mount bracket.
(*): selectable from OSD
CONTROLLING THE 2 UNITS
The remote control supplied (IR, infrared operation), permits full control of the system. It controls both the HOST™
system and the projector since both are equipped with an
IR sensor on the front while the projector also has an IR
receiver on the back. The two units are connected by a cable containing three optical fibres, each ending with an LC
connector. The standard cable length (20m), permits even
the most demanding installations.

! WARNING:
When installing the optical fibre cable:
• Handle the fibres carefully: touch the cable only where it is
sheathed. Never pull the fibres or connectors, only the cable.
• Remove the protective cap covering the ferrule only when
inserting the connector: if it comes into contact with other
bodies it may be damaged and be unusable.
• Take special care when inserting the fibres into the respective connectors, located on the back panel of the HOST™
system and at the back of the projector.
• Make sure that the fibres are not inverted: match the numbers marked on the fibres with those on the connectors.
• Check that the connectors are correctly inserted.
• Take care that the cable is not knotted and that, if it is bent, it
forms a curve with a radius of no less than 2 cm.

Components, S-Video and Composite Video. However, the
HT3000 HOST system features an excellent video decoder
and de-interlacer, and therefore, even inferior quality signals
will produce extremely pleasing images.
Failure to observe the above warnings may cause the
fibre optic cable to break. It is appreciated that it is
not always practical or convenient but due to the fragile nature of fibre optic cables we highly recommend
to test the cable prior to and after installation. Also it
is good practice to examine the cable between fixes
and making good just in case other trades haven’t
7 NETWORK FUNCTIONS (RJ45 connector)
TYPE OF IP ADDRESS
This screen permits you to select the type of IP address to
be assigned:
1. Static IP: the IP address, network SUBNET and GATEWAY must be entered manually.
2. Dynamic IP (DHCP): choose this option if you want the
projector IP address to be automatically assigned by the
network DHCP server (in most networks the DHCP server
is a router).
NETWORK FUNCTIONS (RJ45 connector)
The HT3000 HOST system has a 10/100 Mbit Ethernet interface located on the HOST system connector panel to
connect the projector to a LAN network or to the Internet.
The network connection can be used to remotely control
the projector from any workstation with access to the network by sending TCP/IP protocol commands.
Additionally, by suitably configuring the network specifications, you can receive e-mail notifications on the operating
status of the HT3000 HOST system.
REMOTE CONTROL
In order to control the projector by TCP/IP protocol, you
must specify the TCP port to which the connection must

8 CONNECTIONS
ENGLISH
Attention: When switching between inputs the image is deliberately ‘frozen’ to allow time for the system to stabilize, during this time you may see color
changes & noise on screen - this is perfectly normal
and not a malfunction of the projector
COMPOSITE VIDEO (2-3)
Fit an RCA connector with a Composite Video (CVBS) signal to this input.
The output connector on the external appliance is normally
coloured yellow and will often be labelled VIDEO.
Other signal and socket formats may be preferable (because they give better image quality), but this type of output
socket is still the most commonly used, and nearly all television receivers, video recorders, DVD players and camcorders, etc. use it.
S-VIDEO (4-5)
Fit a mini-DIN connector with an S-Video signal to this input.
The corresponding output on the external device is normally identified by the labels S-VIDEO or Y/C. This type is
nearly as common as Composite Video, and is preferable
to the latter, since it gives higher image quality.
RGB - YPrPb (6-7-8-9)
These inputs use a set of 5 RCA connectors and 5 BNC
connectors. RGB and Component signals can be applied
to each set of connectors.
If you use the RGB inputs you can select YPrPb video
mode. RGB signals may feature composite synchronisation
on the green signal (RGsB), or on the HV signal.
Connect the R, G, B outputs of the source to the respective
R, G, B inputs of the HOST system (taking care not to invert
the positions) and any synchronisation signals to the HV.
With regard to the 3 sets of RCA connectors, when hooking up, use the colours of the RCA connectors as an aid as
follows: the R connector is red, G is green, B is blue and
HV is white. You can use a SCART to RCA adapter cable
to connect the RGB signal from a source equipped with a
SCART output to this input.
The Component signals connect to the Y, Pr and Pb inputs:
take care that the inputs match the outputs on the source
device.
Since these may be labelled differently, refer to Table 1 to
establish the correspondence between the various signals.
As indicated in the table, the colours of the connectors can
also be of help.
Only horizontal scanning frequencies of 15 kHz (standard
video resolution) or 32 kHz or higher (high definition video,
with progressive scanning, high definition video) can be applied to this input.
terlaced signals, but if the source features both progressive
and deinterlaced signal outputs it is good practice to compare the quality of the pictures reproduced by the HT3000
HOST in the two cases: the deinterlacing performed by the
HT3000 HOST is often more effective than that performed
by the sources themselves.
GRAPHICS RGB / YPrPb (10-11)
This input should be connected to an RGB/YPrPb type video or graphic signal using a cable with a DB15HD type connector. The signal source device (typically a personal computer or game console) must be able to provide separate
H/V synchronisation or composite H+V synchronisation.
DVI-D (Non HDCP) (12)
This input permits you to make the best use of digital image
quality. If your source has a DVI-D output (with YPrPb or
RGB signal) connect it to this input.
HDMI™ (13-14-15-16-17-18)
HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) integrates an
uncompressed high definition video signal with a multichannel audio signal and allows exchange of control data
between the video source and the HT3000 HOST.
The HDMI™ input allows connection to video sources that
use the HDCP (High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection)
protocol to protect their contents. Once the video source
has been connected to the HDMI™ input, internal processing by the HT3000 HOST separates the video information
from the audio information.
You can use a DVI-D > HDMI adapter cable to connect the
DVI-D signal from a source equipped with a DVI-D output.
The design of the HOST means that the connection to
source equipment can be as short as possible, therefore
reducing the need for long HDMI cable runs. HDMI gives
the user access to some of the highest picture quality currently available today. The system uses an encryption system called HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Copy Protection)
which protects recorded media from being copied illegally
via Satellite, cable, PC and the next generation of disc based
systems such as Blu-Ray. The connection between source
and display requires the two devices to “hand-shake” and
pass to each other the encryption keys before a picture can
be displayed. Therefore it is perfectly normal to experience
a short delay before the picture appears on screen.
SDI (20)
The HDSDI/SDI input permits you to connect sources with
serial digital outputs in YPrPb components in compliance
with the SMPTE292M (high definition) and SMPTE259MC (standard definition) standards. The signal, of the uncompressed type, is transmitted digitally by single coaxial cable,
thus guaranteeing a high level of resistance to noise and
disturbance.
Progressive signals usually provide better quality than in-

BRIGHTNESS
Use this control to adjust the darker areas of the picture
(black level), without affecting bright areas. Increasing the
value will give more detail in darker parts of the picture. For
correct adjustment it may prove useful to display a grey
scale with at least twenty bands. Now try to reduce the
brightness of the black band as much as possible while
ensuring that it can still be distinguished from the adjacent
band with brightness slightly higher than black. Alternatively
use a scene composed of black objects alongside other dark
coloured objects and try to ensure that all the objects can
be separately identified.
TINT
This adjustment controls the purity of colours. Basically it
determines the red-green ratio of the picture. Decreasing
the value increases the red content of the image, increasing
it increases the green content. For this adjustment use skin
tones or a test card image with colour bars as a reference.
SHARPNESS
This adjustment serves to modulate the signal to increase
or decrease the level of picture detail. When the sharpness
value is reduced the image details appear less pronounced,
while increasing the value raises image definition, making the
outline of objects sharper.
Note that an excessively high value may result in a noisy
picture and the edges of objects may appear unnaturally
clearly defined.
SHARPNESS MODE
This allows you to select the type of processing associated
with sharpness adjustment. For an interlaced or progressive video signal, set to Video; for PC graphics signals, set
to Graphics.
If the VIDEO option is set, it applies Noise Reduction to
increase the clarity of the image.
FILTER
This allows you to select the mode in which the input signal is
processed. Selecting the most appropriate value for a given
input signal ensures the best horizontal and vertical definition
and makes the picture sharper.
CINEMA MODE
Use this option if the video signal source is a movie film
(obtained from a Telecin device with 3:2 or 2:2 pull-down).
In this case a deinterlace algorithm optimised for this type
of signal is applied. Selecting AUTO mode causes the deinterlacer to analyse signal characteristics and apply the
correct deinterlace mode automatically.

Colour temperature can be adjusted by positioning the white
point within the CIE chromaticity diagram. The system permits
you to place the white point inside a grid positioned in the
neutral colour zone. Moving along the horizontal lines changes
the related colour temperature, with low temperatures on the
right (thus increasing the red content) and high temperatures
on the left of the graph (thus increasing the blue content).
Points along the lower horizontal line represent the colours on
the black body curve.

The colour temperature along the vertical lines is constant
but differs to a lesser or higher degree from the black body
curve. This means that by selecting the points on the higher
part of the graph you will increase the green component.
On the contrary, by selecting points in the lower part of the
graph, the purple component increases.
GAMMA CORRECTION
Determines the systems response to the grey scale, emphasising or attenuating the different grades of brightness
(blacks, dark, medium and light greys, whites) in the projected image.
The projector has a range of gamma functions which enable you to display any image to the best effect for the type
of video source, the ambient lighting and your subjective
preferences.
There are 3 sets of gamma curves: Standard (ST), Enhanced
SIM2 (EN) and Graphics (GR). The Standard curve has been
defined for general use, and is set for camcorders, digital
cameras, and for viewing films or photos from your PC.
The Enhanced set is suitable for watching movies. The
Graphics set is suited to displaying synthetic graphics (PC,
CAD, PC presentations, etc.).
Values higher than 2.2 increase overall contrast, but reduce
the detail of dark areas. For the most common video sources,
if you set the parameter to 2.2, you will obtain pleasant and
well-contrasted images.
For general use.
OVERSCAN
Eliminates irregularities around the outer borders of the image.
Some less accurate sources may produce an image with
uneven borders; thanks to the overscan function these
imperfections can be moved outside the projected area.
PosiTION
Use this adjustment to position the image vertically and
horizontally. These parameters do not normally require adjustment because the system checks the input signal and
automatically sets the most suitable values. However, if the
image is not perfectly centred it may prove useful to make the
system repeat the input signal analysis and image positioning, requesting the automatic control procedure with button
A on the remote control. When this procedure is requested
it is helpful to have a white or light coloured background in
the current picture on the screen.
Y/C DELAY
Where Video and S-Video signals are concerned, it may
be necessary to correct horizontal colour misalignment
within the projected image. For a given video standard (e.g.
PAL or NTSC) the stored value does not normally require
further adjustment, unless the source or connection cable
is changed.

Frequency & Phase
These adjustments, available for progressive signals and
for signals from a PC, ensure correspondence between the
number of pixels making up the signal and the number of
pixels that make up the projected image.
It is not normally necessary to adjust these parameters
because the system checks the input signal and automatically sets the most suitable values. If however the image is
disturbed (loss of resolution between equidistant vertical
bands or instability and lack of detail in thin vertical lines) it
may help to ask the system to rerun the input signal analysis
and set the best parameters by requesting the automatic
adjustment function with button A on the remote control
or AUTO on the keypad. If the automatic procedure fails to
achieve the required effect, enter the frequency and phase
values manually and move sufficiently close to the screen to
observe the effects of the adjustments.

ORIENTATION
Reverses the image vertically and horizontally to best fit the
installation: i.e. desktop front, ceiling front, desktop rear and

KEYSTONE
To achieve the best image quality, we recommend installing the projector on a surface which is perpendicular to the
screen. If the image slopes left or right, adjust the feet on
the bottom of the projector to obtain a level position, lining
up the base of the projected image with the base of the
projection screen.
If this adjustment is insufficient to centre the image on the
screen, tilt the projector and use the Vertical keystone adjustment to compensate for the resulting distortion.

has previously been modified, select the line referring to the
Memory in question and open the corresponding pull-down
menu (key ◀). Then select the “Save initial settings” line.
A message stating “Initial settings saved in Memory 1” will
appear at the bottom of the display.
RENAMING A MEMORY
All Memories can be named. To assign a name (with a maximum length of 12 alphanumeric characters) to a Memory,
select the Rename option from the corresponding pull-down
menu. Enter the text as described in the paragraph Text
Entry.
RESTORING CURRENT SETTINGS
When you enter the MEMORIES menu a copy of the current
settings is saved in a temporary memory (marked 0 - AUTO).
Once one or more memories have been recalled, you can
restore the settings that were effective at the moment the
Memories menu was accessed by selecting Memory 0 (0 AUTO). Note that this operation must be performed before
the Memories menu page disappears (30 seconds after the
last operation with the remote control or keypad). The next
time it appears, in fact, the temporary memory will contain
new information that takes account of any Memories selected on the last time but one that the MEMORIES page
was accessed.
Memory 0 can be used even when you do not wish to enable
Memories management for the signal in use. In fact, once
Memory 0 has been selected, when a source is chosen,
the settings that were effective at the time the Memory was
previously recalled will be automatically applied.
INFO

the ▶ key on the keypad).
QUICK MENUS
The quick menus provide access to the main adjustments
that affect image quality without opening the main menu.
BRIGHTNESS, CONTRAST, COLOUR, TINT, SHARPNESS,
FILTER and NOISE REDUCTION adjustments appear at the
bottom of the screen one after the other when the ▼ and
▲ keys are pressed.

• Make sure the selected input is connected to a video
or graphic signal and that that source is functioning
correctly.
• Check the condition of the cables used to connect the
system to the various sources.
• Make sure the video or graphic signals supplied by the
source are compatible with the system’s technical specifications and, in particular, with those of the selected
input.
10 CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
The projector does not require internal adjustment. There are
no user serviceable parts inside the projector.
To replace the bulb or any other repairs, contact your local
service centre, whose engineers will be happy to efficiently
solve any problem.
Use a soft cloth to clean the projector housing, if necessary
slightly dampened with water and a small amount of neutral
soap. Do not rub the rear panel markings.
The lens may be cleaned with a small very soft, non-abrasive
brush, to remove dust particles. Alternatively, use a soft dry
cleaning cloth (of the type used for camera lens cleaning) to
remove fingerprints and grease marks.
NO POWER (LEDs ALWAYS OFF)
• Check that the projector’s power switches are turned
on.
• Check that the power cables are correctly connected
to the projector’s power sockets.
• Check the condition of the fuse located next to the power
socket at the rear of the projector.
• Replace the fuse located on the projector’s power socket
with an identical type (T 3,15A H).
• If the fuse blows repeatedly, seek technical assistance
from your nearest service centre.
ENGLISH
Out of range
This message appears when either the resolution or the vertical/horizontal frequency of the input signal exceeds system
specifications (e.g. a QXGA graphic signal).
11 TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
LAMP FAILS TO SWITCH ON
• If this happens immediately after the last time the unit
was switched off, allow a few minutes between switching
off and switching on again.
This will allow the lamp to cool down to the optimum
temperature for switching on.
• If the lamp fails to light - even though the unit has had
time to cool down - seek technical assistance from your
nearest service centre.
• Check the state of the connection by using Table 1 to
interpret the code displayed by the system LEDs.
• Reset the Projector & HOST by turning off the power
on both units. Wait 10 seconds before powering on
again.
• Check fibre Optic cable connections on Projector and
Host.
NO IMAGE
• Make sure the selected input is connected to a video
or graphic signal and that that source is functioning
correctly.
• Check that the source is HDCP compliant, you will not
get a picture using encrypted material via the DVI-D
input.
• Make sure the video or graphic signals supplied by the
source are compatible with the HT3000 HOST system’s
technical specifications and, in particular, with those of
the selected input.
• Check the condition of the cables used to connect the
projector to its input sources.
• Check the state of the connection by interpreting the
code displayed by the system LEDs.
• Make sure the cooling air vents on the units are not
blocked and that the room temperature is below 35°C.
Picture OK on 1080i & 720p material BUT NO
PICTURE DISPLAYED IN 1080P 60hz/50Hz?
• This usually means that the HDMI cable has insufficient
bandwidth to pass 1080p 60hz/50hz.This is quite commonon cheap cables and also excessively long cables.
We suggest using better quality cables and as short as
possible, avoid cables in excess of 10mtrs.

HT3000 HOST
When using an external HDMI switcher or
AV Amp, some times when switching inputs I
do not get a picture
• First of all bypass the switcher and connect directly to
the projector and check that all cable are OK. Change
to a lower resolution if your source is set to 1080p
50/60Hz, try at 1080i - if the picture comes on then it
suggests there are bandwidth or compatibility issues of
the switcher, check with the manufacturer to see if there
are any software updates for the AV Amp or switcher.
Try unplugging the HDMI cable from the HOST and plug
in again to activate the “hot plug” detection, also try this
for all other HDMI inputs.
IMAGE/OVERSCAN menu.
Image too dark/pale or unnaturally coloured
• Check compatibility of the video or graphic signals
with the technical specifications of the system, and in
particular, with the specifications of the selected input.
• Adjust the Contrast, Brightness, Colour and Tint parameters in the PICTURE menu.
• If necessary, adjust Colour Temperature and Gamma
Correction (IMAGE menu).
Graphic image with poor quality vertical detail
• Check compatibility of the video or graphic signals
with the technical specifications of the system, and in
particular, with the specifications of the selected input.
• Press key A on the remote control or ◀ on the projector
keypad to execute automatic adjustments.
• Adjust the Frequency and Phase settings in the IMAGE
menu to optimise the vertical details of the image(if
available for the input in question).
Colored Sparkles on screen
• Occasional appearances of color flashes and sparkles
appear on screen when set to 1080p 50/60hz. This can
happen as a result of lower quality switchers and cables,
try a lower resolution.
IMAGE IS DISTURBED, UNSTABLE OR NOISY
• Check compatibility of the video or graphic signals with
the technical specifications of the system, and specifically, with the specifications of the selected input.
• Check all cables.
• If the problem occurs on a terrestrial broadcast source
signal, check that the receiver has been correctly tuned
in and that the aerial system is in good working order.
• If the problem occurs in a video signal from a video
recorder, ensure that the videotape is in good condition
and that VCR mode is active in the PICTURE menu.
• Adjust the Sharpness parameter in the PICTURE menu
to optimise the projected image.
• If using a Blu-Ray or HDVD high definition disc player
please be aware that material recorded on the disc
may be encoded with frame rate of 1080p 24Hz which
represents the same format as shown in a movie theater.
Quite often the movie trailers, on screen warnings,
menu’s and special features will be recorded at a different rate as the main feature such as 1080i25/30Hz
etc. Therefore, depending on how your player is set up
the projector will appear to be “hunting” for the correct
signal and sometimes it will display “No Signal” while the
player is synchronising to the correct format. On these
occasions - a few seconds of the program start maybe
missed while the projector stabilizes. This is a normal
characteristic and not considered to be a malfunction.
Incomplete image along borders
• Check compatibility of the video or graphic signals with
the technical specifications of the system, and specifically, with the specifications of the selected input.
• Open the automatic image adjustment function by
pressing the key A on the remote control or ◀ on the
projector’s keypad.
• Adjust the horizontal or vertical position of the image with
the IMAGE/POSITION menu (if available for the input in
question).
• Adjust the image width and height, selecting Aspect in
the IMAGE /ASPECT menu.
• Adjust the overscan setting applied to the image on the
Video image showing colour misalignment on
vertical details
• Check compatibility of the video or graphic signals
with the technical specifications of the system, and in
particular, with the specifications of the selected input.
• Adjust Y/C Delay settings in the IMAGE menu to reduce
colour misalignment.
Remote control does not work
• Check remote control battery power and that they are
inserted correctly.
• Ensure the area between the infrared sensors (on the
front panel of the projector) and the remote control is
free from obstructions.
• Make sure the infrared sensors on the front and rear
of the projector are not exposed to very bright light
levels.
