Mounting the projector on a ceiling requires special ceiling brackets and specialized knowledge.
Improper mounting could cause the projector to fall, resulting in an accident.
• If the projector is ceiling-mounted, install the breaker for turning off the power in case of
anomaly. Let everyone involved with the use of the projector know that fact.

WARNING
• Do not look into the lens during operation. Doing so could damage your vision.
CAUTION
• Do not block the air intake or exhaust. Doing so could cause a fire due to internal overheating.
• Do not place your hands, face, or other objects near the air exhaust. Doing so could
cause burns, deform/break the object.
Notes
• The start-up screen will disappear after a moment. You can dismiss the start-up screen before this

PRECAUTIONS
• Before unplugging the AC power cord, make sure that the LAMP indicator is off.
Unplugging the AC power cord and cutting off the power while the projector is running or
being cooled will shorten the life of the lamp. However, please unplug the AC power
cord if the projector locks up or acts abnormally.
• If the AC power cord was unplugged before cooling was complete, give the lamp
sufficient time to cool before plugging it back in. If the lamp overheats, it may fail to light,
and its lifetime will be shortened.
LCD Panels
LCD panels wear out. In order to prolong the lifetime of your LCD panel, take the
following precautions.
• In order to extend the lifetime of the LCD panel, always turn off the power when not in
use, and make sure that the lamp is off. Keeping the lamp off is also very effective at
saving electricity.
• If the air filter becomes dirty and clogged, the projector’s internal temperature will rise,
shortening the lifetime of the LCD panel and causing malfunctions. Clean the air filter
from time to time p.32 , and replace it periodically. Contact the store where you
purchased your projector, or your local Service Station for replacement air filters.

Notes
• Note that because of the lamp characteristics, the brightness of the lamp may fluctuate slightly.
• A lamp is a consumable supply.
If used for extended periods, images will appear dark, and the lamp could burn out. This
is characteristic of a lamp, and is not malfunction. (The lifetime of the lamp depends on
conditions of use.)
• The LCD panel is made using extremely advanced technology, but there may be black
spots (pixels that do not light) or bright spots (pixels that are constantly lit) on the panel.
Please note that these are not malfunctions.
• Although this projector supports a wide range of RGB signals p.38 , any resolutions not
supported by the model (XGA or SVGA, depending on the model) will expand or shrink the
pictures, and will affect image quality slightly. To view high-quality images, it is
recommended that the computer’s external output should be set to the projector’s resolution.
• With some models of computer having LCD displays or the like, displaying images
simultaneously on the projector and the monitor’s display may cause the images to be
shown improperly. If this happens, turn off the computer’s LCD display. For information on
how to turn off the LCD display, see the owner’s manual of your computer.

WARNING
• If the projector is mounted on a ceiling, request a lamp replacement from your projector dealership.
• When replacing, always use lamp “VLT-SE1LP ” (sold separately).
CAUTION
Notes
• Allowing dirt and dust to build up in the air filter will worsen the air circulation inside the
projector, causing the internal temperature to rise, causing the projector to stop working
or malfunction.
• Insert the air filter all the way in. Leaving gaps will allow dust and dirt to get inside the
projector again.
• If you wash the air filer with water, make sure to dry it completely before replacing it.
• If the air filter is torn, consult with your dealer about replacing it with a new one.
Continuing to use a ripped filter will allow dust and dirt to get inside the projector.

• If the AC power cord is unplugged before cooling is complete, give the lamp enough time
to cool before plugging it back in. If the lamp overheats, it may fail to light. Unplugging the
AC power cord repeatedly when the temperature is high will shorten the life of the lamp.
(Even if you are not concerned about lamp lifetime, the light may not come on if you do
not wait at least 3 minutes.)
