IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
Ensure that you read the following safeguards when
setting up your projector.
Caution concerning the lamp unit
■ Potential hazard of glass particles if lamp ruptures. In case of lamp rupture, contact your
nearest EIKI Authorized Dealer or Service
Center for replacement. See “Replacing the
Lamp” on page 93.
The projector may be safely tilted to a
maximum angle of 9 degrees.
■ Placement should be within 9 degrees of
horizontal.
If you have application requiring tilt angle
exceeding 9 degrees, please check with your
local EIKI sales office.
9°
Caution concerning the setup of the projector
Warning about placing the projector in a
high position
■ For minimal servicing and to maintain high
image quality, EIKI recommends that this projector be installed in an area free from humidity, dust and cigarette smoke. When the
projector is subjected to these environments,
the vents and lens must be cleaned more
often. As long as the projector is regularly
cleaned, use in these environments will not
reduce the overall operation life of the unit.
Internal cleaning should only be performed
by an EIKI Authorized Dealer or Service Center.
Do not subject the projector to hard impact and/or vibration.
Do not set up the projector in places exposed to direct sunlight or bright light.
■ Position the screen so that it is not in direct
sunlight or room light. Light falling directly on
the screen washes out the colors, making
viewing difficult. Close the curtains and dim
the lights when setting up the screen in a
sunny or bright room.
8
■ When placing the projector in a high position, ensure to secure it carefully to avoid personal injury caused by the projector falling
down.
■ Take care with the lens so as not to hit or
damage the surface of the lens.
Rest your eyes occasionally.
■ Continuously watching the screen for long
hours will cause eye strain. Ensure to occasionally rest your eyes.
Avoid locations with extremes of temperature.
■ The operating temperature of the projector
is from 41°F to 104°F (+5°C to +40°C).
■ The storage temperature of the projector is
from –4°F to 140°F (–20°C to +60°C).
Do not block the intake and exhaust
vents.
■ Allow at least 11 13/16 inches (30 cm) of space
between the exhaust vent and the nearest
wall or obstruction.
■ Be sure that the intake vents and the exhaust
vent are not obstructed.
■ If the cooling fan becomes obstructed, a protection circuit will automatically put the projector into standby mode to prevent overheat
damage. This does not indicate a malfunction (See pages 91 and 92.). Remove the projector power cord from the wall outlet and wait
at least 10 minutes. Place the projector where
the intake and exhaust vents are not blocked,
plug the power cord back in and turn on the
projector. This will return the projector to the
normal operating condition.
Caution regarding usage of the projector
■ When using the projector, be sure not to subject it to hard impact and/or vibration, as this
can result in damage. Take extra care with the
lens. If you are not to use the projector for a
long time, be sure to unplug the power cord
from the wall outlet, and disconnect any other
cables connected to it.
■ Do not use the projector while holding the
lens.
■ When storing the projector, be sure to attach
the lens cap to the projector. (See page 13.)
■ Do not expose the projector to direct sunlight
or near heat sources. The projector may
change color or become deformed.
Other connected equipment
■ When connecting a computer or other audiovisual equipment to the projector, make the
connections AFTER unplugging the power
cord of the projector from the AC outlet and
turning off the equipment to be connected.
■ Please read the owner’s manuals of the projector and the equipment to be connected for
instructions on how to make the connections.
Using the projector in other countries
■ The power supply voltage and the shape of
the plug may vary depending on the region
or country you are using the projector in.
When using the projector overseas, be sure
to use an appropriate power cord for the country you are in.
Temperature monitor function
■ If the projector starts to overheat due to setup problems or
blockage of the air vents, “ ”
and “
” will illuminate in
the lower left corner of the picture. If the temperature continues to rise, the lamp will turn off,
the temperature warning indicator on the projector will blink, and after a 90-second coolingoff period the projector will enter the standby
mode. Refer to “Maintenance Indicators” on
page 91 for details.
Info
• The cooling fan regulates the internal temperature, and its performance is automatically controlled. The sound of the fan may
change during projector operation due to
changes in the fan speed. This does not
indicate malfunction.
• Do not unplug the power cord during projection or cooling fan operation. This can
cause damage due to rise in internal temperature, as the cooling fan also stops.
Optional lens installation
■ Be sure to have service personnel install the
optional lenses.

Setting Up the Projector
Setting Up the Projector
Position the projector perpendicular to the screen with the projector’s feet flat and level to achieve an
optimal image.
Note
• The projector lens should be centered in the middle of the screen. If the horizontal line passing through
the lens center is not perpendicular to the screen, the image will be distorted, making viewing difficult.
• For an optimal image, position the screen so that it is not in direct sunlight or room light. Light falling
directly on the screen washes out the colors, making viewing difficult. Close the curtains and dim the lights
when setting up the projector in a sunny or bright room.
Standard Setup (Front Projection)
■ Place the projector at the required distance from the screen according to the desired picture size. (For
details, refer to “SETUP GUIDE” contained on the supplied CD-ROM.)
Indication of the Projection Image Size and Projection Distance

Info
• If the temperature warning indicator blinks and the projector enters the standby mode, the temperature
warning indicator starts to illuminate. Check whether any of the ventilation holes are blocked (see page 9)
and then try turning the power back on. Wait until the projector has cooled down completely before
plugging in the power cord and turning the power back on. (At least 10 minutes.)
• If the power is turned off for a brief moment due to power outage or some other cause while using the
projector, and the power supply recovers immediately after that, the lamp indicator will illuminate in red
and the lamp may not be lit. In this case, unplug the power cord from the AC outlet, replace the power
cord in the AC outlet and then turn the power on again.
• Do not unplug the power cord after the projector has entered the standby mode and while the cooling fan
is running. The cooling fan runs for about 90 seconds.

Regarding the Lamp
Lamp
■ It is recommended that the lamp units (optional: AH-45001 and AH-45002) be replaced when the remaining lamp life becomes 5% or less, or when you notice a significant deterioration in the picture
and color quality. The lamp life (percentage) can be checked with the on-screen display. See page 83.
■ Purchase a replacement lamp unit of type AH-45001 and AH-45002 from your place of purchase,
nearest EIKI Authorized Dealer or Service Center.
Caution Concerning the Lamp
■ This projector utilizes a pressurized mercury lamp. A loud sound may indicate lamp failure. Lamp
failure can be attributed to numerous sources such as: excessive shock, improper cooling, surface
scratches or deterioration of the lamp due to a lapse of usage time.
The period of time up to failure largely varies depending on the individual lamp and/or the condition
and the frequency of use. It is important to note that failure can often result in the bulb cracking.
■ When the lamp indicator and on-screen display icon are illuminated, it is recommended that the
lamp be replaced with a new one immediately, even if the lamp appears to be operating normally.
■ Should the lamp break, the glass particles may spread inside the lamp cage or gas contained in the
lamp may be vented into the room from the exhaust vent. Because the gas in this lamp includes
mercury, ventilate the room well if the lamp breaks and avoid all exposure to the released gas. In
case of exposure to the gas, consult a doctor as soon as possible.
■ Should the lamp break, there is also a possibility that glass particles may spread inside of the
projector. In such a case, it is recommended you contact your nearest EIKI Authorized Dealer or
Service Center to assure safe operation.
Replacing the Lamp
Caution
• Do not remove the lamp unit from the projector right after use. The lamp will be very hot and may cause burn
or injury.
• Wait at least one hour after the power cord is disconnected to allow the surface of the lamp unit to fully cool
before removing the lamp unit.
■ Carefully change the lamp by following the instructions described in this section. *If you wish, you
may have the lamp replaced at your nearest EIKI Authorized Dealer or Service Center.
* If the new lamp does not illuminate after replacement, take your projector to the nearest EIKI Authorized
Dealer or Service Center for repair.

Glossary
Advanced intelligent compression (Page 97)
High quality resizing of lower and higher resolution images to fit the projector’s native resolution.
Aspect ratio (Page 48)
Width and height ratio of an image. The normal
aspect ratio of a computer and video image is 4:3.
There are also wide images with an aspect ratio
of 16:9 and 21:9.
Auto Sync (Page 70)
Optimizes projected computer images by automatically adjusting certain characteristics.
Background (Page 77)
Initial setting image projected when no signal is
being output.
Border (Page 49)
Projects a 4:3 image fully within a 16:9 screen by
keeping the aspect ratio at 4:3.
Clock (Page 68)
Clock adjustment is used to adjust vertical noise
when clock level is incorrect.
CLR Temp (Color temperature) (Page 61)
Function that can be used to adjust the color temperature to suit the type of image input to the projector. Decrease the color temperature to create
warmer, reddish images for natural flesh tones,
or increase to create cooler, bluish images for a
brighter picture.
C.M.S. (Color Management System) (Page 64)
Function allows you individually adjust the display
characteristics of six colors (R: Red, Y: Yellow, G:
Green, C: Cyan, B: Blue, M: Magenta)
Dot by Dot (Page 48)
Mode that projects images in their native resolution.
Keylock Level (Page 85)
Mode that can lock the operation of projector buttons to prevent unauthorized adjustment.
Keystone Correction (Page 41)
Function to digitally correct a distorted image
when the projector is set up at an angle, smoothens out jaggies on keystone images and compresses the image not only horizontally but vertically keeping the 4:3 aspect ratio.
Phase (Page 68)
Phase shift is a timing shift between isomorphic
signals with the same resolution. When phase
level is incorrect, the projected image typically displays horizontal flicker.
Pict in Pict (Page 74)
The Pict in Pict (picture in picture) function allows
you to display two pictures on the same screen.
You can display the image input from a video as
an inset picture overlapping the main picture input from a computer.
102
Picture Mode (Page 60)
Image quality enhancement function that offers a
richer image by brightening the darker portions of
the image without altering the brightness of the
brighter portions. You can select four different
modes: STANDARD, PRESENTATION, CINEMA
and CUSTOM.
Progressive (Page 62)
The progressive display projects a smoother video
image. You can select three different modes: 2D
Progressive, 3D Progressive and Film Mode.
Resize (Page 48)
Allows you to modify or customize the picture display mode to enhance the input image. You can
select six different modes: NORMAL, FULL, DOT
BY DOT, BORDER, STRETCH and SMART
STRETCH.
Shifting the lens (Page 38)
Function to adjust the position of the projected image for the position of the screen by shifting the lens
horizontally and vertically.
Smart Stretch (Page 49)
Projects the image fully in a 16:9 screen by enlarging only the surrounding areas while keeping
the aspect ratio in the middle part of the image at
4:3.
sRGB (Page 64)
An international standard of color reproduction
regulated by the IEC (International Electrotechnical
Commission). As the fixed color area has been
decided by the IEC, the color changes according
to DLP features, so that the images are displayed
in a natural tint based on an original image, when
“C.M.S. Adjustment” is set to “sRGB”.
Stack Setting (Page 84)
Setting for the stack projection that allows you to
increase the brightness of an image by stacking
multiple projectors and projecting same image
simultaneously. You can control projectors for the
stack projection by assigning a projector as the
master and the other projectors as the slaves.
Stretch (Page 49)
Mode that stretches the 4:3 image horizontally to
display it fully on a 16:9 screen.
System Lock (Page 79)
If the “Keycode” set in the projector is not correctly entered, the projector will not operate even
if signals are entered.
