Notes on Handling and Storage
Be sure to observe the following precautions to avoid malfunctions, operating errors or damage to the projector.
Notes on Handling and Storage
• Do not set up the projector near high-voltage electrical wires or sources of magnetic fields.
These may interfere with correct operation.
• Do not touch the lens with bare hands.
•
•
•
•
•
If fingerprints or grease get onto the lens, it can interfere with the quality of the projected images. Attach the lens
cover to the lens when the projector is not in use.
During projection, some points (dots) may appear lit at all times, or they may be dark at all times.
This is caused by the characteristics of the LCD panel, and is not a sign of a malfunction. The LCD panel is
manufactured using extremely high-precision technology. However, black dots may appear on the panel, or some
red, blue or green dots may light extremely brightly at times. Furthermore, sometimes stripe-shaped color
irregularities or brightness irregularities may also appear.
Remove the batteries from the remote control before storage.
If the batteries are left in the remote control for long periods, they may leak.
Always attach the lens cap to the lens when not using the projector, to prevent the lens from becoming dirty or
damaged.
The mercury lamp that is used as the light source for the projector deteriorates as a result of impacts or
damage, and also naturally over time as it is used. It may explode with a loud noise or stop illuminating, or the
flickering may increase or illumination may stop, and these indicate the end of the lamp's operating life.
At such times, the amount of time remaining before the lamp breaks or stops working may vary greatly depending
on the individual lamp characteristics and the operating environment. These are normal characteristics of mercury
lamps. You should always have a spare lamp ready in case it is needed.
YAMAHA takes no responsibility for loss or damage caused by damage to the projector or operating failures
outside normal service warranty conditions.
Lamp Operating Errors
The mercury lamp that is used as the light source for this projector may stop operating on occasions. This is a normal
characteristic of mercury lamps. If the lamp does not turn on when the projector's power is turned on, remove the
lamp and check if it is broken. If the lamp is not broken, reinstall it. Refer to "Replacing the Lamp" on page 53 of this
manual for instruction on removing and reinstalling the lamp.
If the lamp is broken, replace it with a new lamp. It is recommended that you have a spare lamp ready at all times in
case it is needed.
Notes on Carrying the Projector
• Turn off the projector power and then disconnect the power cord from the electrical outlet.
Furthermore, check that all other cables have been disconnected.
• Attach the lens cap to the lens.
• Retract the adjustable foot.
Notes when transporting the projector
When packing up the projector in its container for transportation, use the lens shift function to lower the lens fully.

LPX-510_E.book Page 4 Wednesday, January 21, 2004 10:58 AM
Features of the Projector
Image appearance can be selected to match the
projection environment (Picture Mode)
The projector is equipped with a unique CB (color balance) filter that enhances the color reproduction of
images.
It is ideal for use in providing the optimum image effects for the projection environment when viewing images
such as games, sporting competitions and movies. It makes other troublesome color adjustments unnecessary.
(p.18)
Equipped with a wideangle lens shift function
The lens shift function allows you to adjust the
position of the projected images vertically and
horizontally without distorting the images.
This allows the projector to be set up with greater
freedom,
even if it is suspended from a ceiling or at an angle
to the screen. (p.12)
Wide range of brightness
adjustments
The image brightness can be adjusted within a wide range. Optimum images can be obtained even if using
the projector in a bright environment for watching videos or games, or in a dark environment such as when
creating the atmosphere of a home theatre. (p.30)
Electronic zoom and focus adjustment
The projector's control panel and the accessory remote control can be used for easy zoom and focus
adjustments.
For zoom adjustment, a high magnification lens is provided to allow images to be increased in size by up to 1.5
times, so that images can be projected onto an 80" screen even at a distance of approximately 2.5 m (8.2 ft.).
(p.11, 16)
A variety of image setting functions
Many other functions are available as follows.
Progressive and Motion Detection functions allow you to obtain ideal results both for images with large
amounts of movement and for still images. (p.32)
An aspect function that allows images to be viewed in wide-screen format. (p.19)
Memory functions that allow adjustment results to be stored and later retrieved easily using the remote control.
(p.26)
Key lock function that locks the control panel so that settings cannot be changed accidentally after
adjustment. (p.34)
Adoption of a special high-resolution DCDi video circuit developed by Faroudja. This circuit greatly reduces
the jagged edges that resulted from conventional progressive conversion. (p.32)

when projection is in progress, wait for the lamp to cool down (normally about
one hour is required) before turning the power back on again. If the power is
turned off and on before the lamp has cooled down, it may result in lamp
operating errors. Refer to "Lamp operating error" on page 42.

Adjusting the Screen Image
Projection image position adjustment (Lens shift)
The lens shift function can be used to adjust the position of projected images when the projector has been set
up in places such as the following.
• When the projector is suspended from a ceiling
• When the screen is higher than the projector
• When the projector is at an angle to the screen so that people can sit directly in front to view the screen
• When the projector is on top of a desk or similar
The lens shift function can move the lens horizontally and vertically to adjust the image position without
causing keystone distortion. Use the two lens shift dials to adjust the position of the projected images.
* At the time of shipment from the factory, the vertical lens shift position is set to the lowest position, so
move it to the center position before carrying out adjustment.
Horizontal lens shift: The projector can be set up
anywhere between the left and
right edges of the screen.
Vertical lens shift: The projector can be set up anywhere
from the top edge of the screen to half
the height of the screen below the
bottom edge.

•
When making keystone corrections set the lens at the center left to right.
When keystone correction is carried out, the projected image will become smaller.
The keystone correction settings are memorized, so that if you change the position or
angle of the projector, you may need to readjust the keystone correction settings.
If the images become uneven in appearance after keystone correction is carried out,
decrease the “Sharpness” setting. (p.30)
Keystone correction can also be carried out using the projector menu. (p.33)
If the value displayed in the gauge on the screen stops changing when horizontal or
vertical keystone correction is being carried out, it indicates that the limit for horizontal
or vertical keystone correction has been exceeded. Check that the projector has not
been set up at an angle which exceeds the proper limit.

Adjusting the Image Quality
Details of each aspect ratio are as follows.
Normal mode
4:3 image
The aspect ratio of the images being input
is maintained, and the images are
projected into a 16:9 screen area.
If projecting images in 4:3 mode such as
normal TV broadcasts and computer
images, black bands will be displayed at
the left and right as shown in the
illustration at left.
HDTV images
If projecting HDTV images,
they will be projected in 16:9
format.
Squeeze mode
When projecting 4:3 TV images
recorded in squeeze mode
Viewed using the projector
This is used when projecting images that
have been recorded in squeeze mode using
a video camera or DVD recorder.
When viewing images recorded in squeeze
format on a 4:3 TV, the images will
compressed in the horizontal direction and
elongated vertically. If squeeze mode is
selected for the projector, the images can
be projected in their original wide format
(16:9).
4:3 image
When the projector's squeeze
mode is applied
When images output in 4:3 format are
projected using the projector's squeeze
mode, the images will be extended
horizontally and the image will appear
elongated.
Zoom mode
Letterbox images
Resized to 16:9
Images in letterbox mode from equipment
such as a DVD player will be cut at top
and bottom by a fixed amount and resized
to 16:9 format.
If this causes captions to be truncated from
images that have them, use the "Zoom
Caption" menu command to adjust. (p.33)

LPX-510_E.book Page 21 Wednesday, January 21, 2004 10:58 AM
Adjusting the Image Quality
Smart Zoom mode
4:3 image
Basic Operations
Images in 4:3 format such as normal TV
broadcasts are extended horizontally, with
less elongation in the middle and more
elongation at the edges.
This is useful for when 4:3 images are
projected onto a wide screen. Because
there is almost no distortion due to
enlargement in the middle of the images,
the images appear close to what they
would be at their original size. And
because both ends of the images are
enlarged, movement at the edges of the
images appears faster and gives an
impression of greater speed, making it
ideal for viewing sporting events.
*If keystone correction has been carried
out, Smart Zoom mode cannot be
selected.
Through mode
If the input signal resolution is 1280 x 720
dots or less, the images are projected onto
the screen with the input signal resolution
unchanged. Because of this, the size of the
displayed images will change depending
on the input resolution.
The picture quality will be the clearest for
portions of the image that have not been
resized horizontally or vertically.
Squeeze Through mode
If the input signal resolution is 1280 x 720
dots or less, the input signal resolution is
elongated horizontally and the images are
projected at an aspect ratio of 16:9.
Because of this, the size of the displayed
images will change depending on the input
resolution.
The portions that are not vertically resized
will appear with higher image quality.

Maintenance
This section describes maintenance tasks such as cleaning the projector and replacing consumable parts.
Cleaning
You should clean the projector if it becomes dirty or if the quality of projected images starts to deteriorate.
Be sure to read the Safety Instructions in this manual for details on safe
handling of the projector during cleaning.
Cleaning the Projector Case
Clean the projector case by wiping it gently with a soft cloth.
If the projector is particularly dirty, moisten the cloth with
water containing a small amount of neutral detergent, and
then firmly wring the cloth dry before using it to wipe the
projector case. Then wipe the case again with a soft, dry
cloth.
Do not use volatile substances such as wax, alcohol or thinner to clean the
projector case. These can cause the case to warp and make the coating finish
peel off.
Cleaning the Lens
Use a commercially-available air blower, or use a lens
cleaning paper to gently wipe the lens.
Do not rub the lens with harsh materials or subject the lens to shocks, as it
can easily become damaged.

Maintenance
Cleaning the Air Filter
If the airfilter becomes clogged with dust or the message
"The projector is overheating. Make sure nothing is blocking
the air vent, and clean or replace the air filter." is displayed,
clean the air filter.
Turn the projector upside-down and use a vacuum cleaner to
clean the air filter.
* Do not use water or detergents to clean the air filter.
•
•
If the air filter becomes clogged with dust, it can result in overheating which
may cause operating problems or reduce the operating life of the optical
parts. It is recommended that you clean the air filter about once every three
months. If using the projector in a dusty location, the air filter should be
cleaned more often.
If the air filter replacement message above appears frequently, consult your
dealer.
Removing the Air Filter
If the air filter is particularly dirty, remove it and clean it if required.

Maintenance
• The lamp replacement warning message is set to appear after approximately 1600 hours
of lamp use in order to maintain the brightness and quality of the projected images. The
time taken for the message to be displayed will vary depending on factors such as the
lamp power setting and the picture mode setting.
If you continue to use the lamp after this period, the possibility of the
lamp breaking becomes greater.
When the lamp replacement message appears, replace the lamp with a new one as soon
as possible, even if it is still working.
• The actual life of each individual lamp will vary depending on the characteristics of the
lamp and on the way it has been used. The lamp may become dark or be off even before
the lamp replacement message appears. You should always have a spare lamp ready in
case it is needed.
• Contact your dealer for a spare lamp.

If the lamp stops working and needs to be replaced, it could have been
broken.
If replacing the lamp of a projector which has been installed to the ceiling,
you should remove the projector from the ceiling before replacing the lamp.
Wait for the lamp to cool down sufficiently before removing the lamp cover.
It takes approximately one hour after the cool-down period has finished
before the lamp is cool enough to be removed.
Turn off the power, wait for the cooldown period to finish (takes
approximately 30 seconds), then
disconnect the power cord.
* Wait until the lamp cools down (takes
approximately 1 hour).

If vertical stripe interference appears in the projected images
Vertical stripe interference may appear in the projected images at times. If this vertical stripe interference
impairs image viewing, the images can be adjusted by carrying out the following procedure.
Example
Image with vertical stripe interference
Image after adjustment
Note the following points when carrying out the procedure below.
• Turn on the power and let the projector stand for approximately 10 minutes after the lamp turns on before
starting the following procedure.
• The following adjustment can be carried out more effectively if the room is made dark beforehand.
• The adjustment can also be carried out without an image source connected.
• If the vertical stripe interference becomes a problem again while using the projector after the adjustment
has been carried out, you can repeat the adjustment procedure to maintain clear images.

Glossary
Component
video
Video signals which have the video brightness signals and color signals separated, in order to provide
better image quality.
In high-definition TV (HDTV), it refers to images which consist of three independent signals: Y
(luminance signal), and Pb and Pr (color difference signals).
Composite
video
Video signals which have the video brightness signals and color signals mixed together. The type of
signals commonly used by household video equipment (NTSC , PAL and SECAM formats).
Video signals which consist of a carrier signal Y (luminance signal) within the color bar signal, and a
chroma or color signal (CbCr).
Cool-down
This is the process by which the projector's lamp is cooled down after it has become hot through use. It
is carried out automatically when the [Power] button on either the remote control or the projector's
control panel has been pressed to the projector off. Do not disconnect the power cord while cool-down
is in progress, otherwise the cool-down process will not work properly. If the cool-down period is not
allowed to finish normally, the projector's lamp and internal components will remain at high
temperatures, and this may shorten the useful life of the lamp or cause problems with the operation of
the projector. The cool-down period lasts for about 30 seconds. The actual time will vary depending on
the external air temperature.
DCDi
function
An abbreviation for Directional Correlational Deinterlacing. Refers to a high-resolution image circuit
function developed by Faroudja. It incorporates the latest in edge cutting technology to smooth the
jaggedness from the edges of images that have been converted from interlaced to progressive video, in
order to provide more natural images.
HDMI
An abbreviation for High Definition Multimedia Interface, and refers to a standard for digital
transmission of high-definition images and multi-channel audio signals.
HDMI is a standard that is targeted towards household digital equipment and computers that allows
digital signals to be transmitted in their original high quality without compression, and it also includes
a digital signal encryption function.
HDTV
An abbreviation for High-Definition Television. It refers to high-definition systems which satisfy the
following conditions.
• Vertical resolution of 720p or 1080i or greater
(p = progressive, i = interlaced )
• Screen aspect of 16:9
• Dolby Digital audio reception and playback (or output)
Interlace
A method of image scanning whereby the signal bandwidth used is approximately half that required for
sequential scanning when images with the same still picture resolution are broadcast.
NTSC
An abbreviation for National Television Standards Committee, and a format for ground-based analogue
color television broadcasts. This format is used in North America, Japan, and Central and South
America.
PAL
An abbreviation for Phase Alternation by Line, and a format for ground-based analogue color
television broadcasts. This format is used in Western European countries except France, and also in
Asian countries such as China and in Africa.
Refresh
rate
The light-emitting element of a display maintains the same luminosity and color for an extremely short
time. Because of this, the image must be scanned many times per second in order to refresh the light
emitting element. The number of refresh operations per second is called the "refresh rate", and is
expressed in hertz (Hz).
S-Video
A video signal which has the luminance component and color component separated in order to provide
better image quality.
It refers to images which consist of two independent signals: Y (luminance signal), and C (color
signal).
SDTV
An abbreviation for Standard Definition Television. It refers to standard television systems which do
not satisfy the conditions for HDTV .
SECAM
An abbreviation for Sequential Couleur A Memoire, and a format for ground-based analogue color
television broadcasts. This format is used in France, Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union, the
Middle East and Africa.
sRGB
An international standard for color intervals that was formulated so that colors which are reproduced
by video equipment can be handled easily by computer operating systems (OS) and the Internet.
SVGA
A type of image signal with a resolution of 800 (horizontal) × 600 (vertical) dots which is used by IBM
PC/ AT-compatible computers.
Appendices
Following is an explanation of some of the terms used in this guide which may be unfamiliar or which were
not explained in the manual itself. Further information can be obtained by referring to other commerciallyavailable publications.

Sync.
(Synchronization)
The signals output from computers have a specific frequency. If the projector frequency does not
match this frequency, the resulting images will not be of a good quality. The process of matching the
phases of these signals (the relative position of the crests and troughs in the signal) is called
"synchronization". If the signals are not synchronized, problems such as flickering, blurriness and
horizontal interference can occur.
Tracking
The signals output from computers have a specific frequency. If the projector frequency does not
match this frequency, the resulting images will not be of a good quality. The process of matching the
frequency of these signals (the number of crests in the signal) is called "tracking". If tracking is not
carried out correctly, wide vertical stripes will appear in the projected images.
VGA
A type of image signal with a resolution of 640 (horizontal) × 480 (vertical) dots which is used by IBM
PC/ AT-compatible computers.
XGA
A type of image signal with a resolution of 1,024 (horizontal) × 768 (vertical) dots which is used by
IBM PC/ AT-compatible computers.

Connecting to a Computer
Turn off the power for both the projector and the computer
before connecting them. If the power for either device is on at
the time of connection, damage may result.
Check the shapes of the cable connectors and the device ports
before making the connections. If you try to force a connector to
fit a device port with a different shape or number of terminals,
damage to the connector or port may result.
The projector cannot be connected to some types of computer,
or projection of images may not be possible even if actual
connection is possible. Make sure that the computer you intend
to use satisfies the conditions given below.
Condition 1: The computer must have a image signal output port.
Check that the computer has a port such as an RGB port, monitor port or video
port which can output image signals. If the computer has a built-in monitor, or if
using a laptop computer, it may not be possible to connect the computer to the
projector, or alternatively you may need to purchase a separate external output
port. Refer to the OWNER'S MANUAL for your computer under a heading such
as "Connecting an external monitor" or similar for further details.
Condition 2: The display resolution and frequency of the computer must
be listed in the "List of Supported Signal Resolutions".
Some computers may have functions for changing the output resolution. Refer to
the OWNER'S MANUAL for the computer and change the setting to within a
range given in the list of supported resolutions.
You may need to purchase a separate adapter to connect the computer
to the projector, depending on the shape of the computer's monitor
port. Refer to the OWNER'S MANUAL for the computer for details.
The optional Mac Adapter Set is required in order to connect the
projector to a Macintosh computer.
