Features of the Projector
Horizontal and vertical keystone correction function
Keystone distortion in the projected image can be easily corrected,
not only vertically but horizontally also.
This allows even images which have been captured from a sideways
angle to be projected correctly. (P. 44)
Color mode function
The optimum images can be projected simply by selecting the image
quality from the following six pre-recorded settings according to the
projection environment being used. (P. 63, 66)
sRGB
Normal Meeting
Presentation Theater Amusement
Easy to Operate
The accessory remote control can be used for operations such as pausing projection
(See "Freeze" on page 54) and zooming in on important areas of an image
(See "E-Zoom" on page 56). In addition, the remote control can be used to move the
pointer around on the computer screen during projection, to carry out operations
such as moving to the next page to be projected.
(See "Using the Remote Control to Operate the
Mouse Pointer" on page 25.)
If using the wireless mouse function with a USB
connection you can use the remote control to
display the next page or previous page when giving
a presentation using PowerPoint documents.
Compact and lightweight
The projector has a compact body with
a footprint the size of an A4 page
(348 (W) x 104 (H) x 274 (D) mm) and is
light in weight (approximately 4.2kg (9.3 lbs)).

Connecting to a Computer
Caution :
When connecting the projector to a computer, be sure to check the following.
• 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.
Eligible Computers
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 video signal output port.
Check that the computer has a port such as an RGB port, monitor port or CRT
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
documentation 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 Monitor Displays".
See “Appendix: List of Supported Monitor Displays”(P.106)
Some computers may have functions for changing the output resolution. For
details, refer to the section of the documentation provided with your computer
and change the setting to within a range given in the list of supported
resolutions.

You can extend or retract the front adjustable foot to adjust the projection angle
within a maximum range of 12°.
Procedure
While pressing the foot adjust button,
lift up the front of the projector so that
the front adjustable foot can extend.
Extend the front adjustable foot until the
desired angle is obtained, and then release the
foot adjust button.
Foot adjust button
Tip :
• When the foot is adjusted, it may cause the size of the projected images to become
distorted. Use the keystone correction function to adjust this distortion. (P.44)
• To retract the front adjustable foot, keep pressing the foot adjust button. The front
adjustable foot will slowly retract inside the projector.
• If the projector is tilted horizontally, turn the rear adjustable foot to adjust the angle.
Downloaded
From projector-manual.com

If the projector cannot be set up so that it is perpendicular to the screen, you can
use the keystone correction function which is described on the following page
to adjust the projected images if the angle of the projector is within a range of
approximately 30° vertically or approximately 10° horizontally from the
perpendicular.
The values given here are for when the image is at the smallest zoom setting
(telephoto). The maximum angles will be smaller if the zoom setting has been
increased in the wide angle direction. Furthermore, if the projector has been
tilted both vertically and horizontally, the maximum adjustable angle will again
be smaller than the maximum angle if the projector had been tilted in only one
direction.

Correcting Keystone Distortion
In some cases it may not be possible to set up the projector so that the setting
angle is perpendicular to the position of the screen. In such cases, a type of
distortion known as "keystone distortion" may appear in the projected images.
If keystone distortion occurs, you can correct it using the [Keystone] buttons on
the projector's control panel.

2. Extend the front adjustable foot to adjust the angle as necessary.
3. Adjust the vertical keystone distortion until both sides of the picture are vertical.
4. Adjust the horizontal keystone distortion until the top and bottom edges of the
picture are both horizontal.
• 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.
To return a previous keystone correction to the initial setting, carry out the following
operations.
To initalize vertical keystone correction: While holding down the [Sync +] button,
press the [Sync -] button for 1 second or more.
To initalize horizontal keystone correction: While holding down the [Tracking +]
button, press the [Tracking -] button for 1 second or more.
• If the images become uneven in appearance after keystone correction is carried out,
decrease the Sharpness setting. (P.63)
• Keystone correction can also be carried out using the projector menu. (P.69)
• If you carry out both horizontal and vertical keystone correction, the correction range
will become smaller than it would be if only one type of correction was carried out.
• 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.
• If the horizontal (or vertical) keystone correction function is used at the same time that
the E-Zoom, Effects or P in P function is being used, the keystone correction amount
may change when the E-Zoom, Effects or P in P function is operated while the keystone
correction amount is near the limit value.
• The limit value for keystone correction will vary depending on the video signal being
input.

Adjusting the Image Quality
The quality of the screen images can be adjusted as follows.
Focusing the Screen Image
Procedure
Turn the focus ring to adjust the image
focus.
Turn the focus ring of the projector until the
projected images are in proper focus.
Tip :
• If the surface of the lens is dirty or misted over as a result of condensation, it may not
be possible to adjust the focus correctly. If this happens, clean or de-mist the lens.
(P.91)
• If the projector is positioned outside the normal projecting range of 0.9 – 12.4 m (3.0 –
40.7 ft.), it may not be possible to obtain the correct focus. If you have trouble
obtaining the correct focus, check the projection distance.
Adjusting Computer Images
Automatic adjustment
This procedure adjusts computer images to the optimum settings.
Automatic adjustment involves adjustment of the following three items:
Tracking , Display position and Synchronization (Sync) .
Procedure

need to first exit the menu or help screen. Alternatively, you can use the [Auto] button
on the remote control instead.
• If you use the remote control to activate the automatic adjustment function while the EZoom, A/V Mute or Picture in Picture functions are in use, the functions being used will
be canceled before automatic adjustment is carried out. If the [Auto] button on the
projector’s control panel is pressed, automatic adjustment will not be carried out if the
E-Zoom or Picture in Picture function is being used.
• Automatic adjustment may not work properly with some types of signals which are
output by computers. In such cases, you may need to adjust the tracking and
synchronization manually.
Adjusting the tracking
If vertical stripes appear in the projected images,
and this cannot be fixed using automatic
adjustment. You will need to adjust the tracking
manually using the following procedure.
Procedure
While holding down the [Shift] button

Tip :
• If you do not adjust the tracking first and then adjust the synchronization, it will not be
possible to get the best adjustment results. Incorrect tracking adjustment may not be
noticeable with some types of picture. However, pictures with lots of lines and shading
will tend to show incorrect tracking adjustments more clearly, so be sure to check the
tracking adjustment first.
• It may also be possible to fix flickering and fuzziness by adjusting the brightness,
contrast , sharpness and keystone correction settings.

Lamp operating
error
This can happen when the power cord was
disconnected from the electrical outlet before
the cool-down period had finished the last
time the projector was turned off.
When turning off the projector, wait 2
minutes. After about 2 minutes, the cooling
fan will stop. When the cooling fan stops,
disconnect the power plug and then re-insert
it. When the power cord is plugged back in,
the projector will return to its previous state,
so press the [Power] button on either the
remote control or the projector's control panel
to turn it back on. If the lamp operating error
happens again when the power is turned back
on, remove the lamp and check if the lamp is
broken. If it is not broken, reinstall it. If it is
broken, replace it. Then press the [Power]
button on either the remote control or the
projector's control panel.If the indicators still
show a problem, stop using the projector,
disconnect the power cord from the electrical
outlet, and contact your dealer or the nearest
address provided at “International Warranty
Conditions” in Safety Instructions/WorldWide Warranty Terms included in the package.
High
temperature
inside projector
(overheating)
The lamp will turn off automatically and
projection will stop. Wait for about 5 minutes
without operating the projector. After 5
minutes have elapsed, the projector’s cooling
fan will stop. Once the cooling fan has
stopped, unplug the power cord and then plug
it back in again.
If the projector overheats, check the following
two points.
Reference
page
P.18
P.92
• Is the setting-up location well ventilated?
Check that the air inlet and air outlet are
clear, and that the projector is not
positioned against a wall.
• Is the air filter blocked with dust?
If the air filter is dirty, it should be cleaned.
When the power cord is plugged back in, the
projector will return to its previous state, so
press the [Power] button on either the remote
control or the projector's control panel to turn
it back on. If the projector continues to
overheat even after the above points have
been checked, or if the indicators show a
problem when the power is turned back on,
stop using the projector, disconnect the power
cord from the electrical outlet, and contact
your dealer or the nearest address provided at
“International Warranty Conditions” in Safety
Instructions/World-Wide Warranty Terms
included in the package.

Terms 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.
Caution :
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.
Caution :
Do not rub the lens with harsh materials or subject the lens to shocks, as it can easily
become damaged.

Replacing Consumables
This section describes how to replace the lamp and the air filter.
Lamp Replacement Period
It is time to replace the lamp when:
• The message "Lamp Replace" appears on the screen for 30 seconds
when projection starts.
A message will be displayed.
• The lamp indicator flashes orange or lights red.
Lamp indicator flashes orange or lights red
• The projected image gets darker or starts to deteriorate.
Tip :
• In order to maintain the brightness and quality of the projected images, replace the
lamp as soon as possible after the warning message appears.
• The replacement warning message is set to appear after 1400 hours of lamp use in order
to maintain the brightness and quality of the projected images. 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 warning message appears after 1400 hours of use, but the actual life of each
individual lamp will vary depending on the characteristics of the lamp and on the way
it has been used. Some lamps may stop operating before 1400 hours of use, so you
should always have a spare lamp ready in case.
• When the lamp replacement warning message appears, the user’s logo will not appear
even if the start-up screen setting is ON.
• Contact your dealer for a spare lamp.

Replacing the Lamp
Caution :
If the lamp stops working and needs to be replaced, there is the danger that the lamp
may break when handled.
If replacing the lamp of a projector which has been installed to the ceiling, you should
always assume that the lamp is broken and handle it with extreme care during removal.
Furthermore, you should stand to the side of the projector, not underneath it.
Procedure
1
Turn off the projector power, wait
for the cool-down period to end,
and then disconnect the power
cord.
The cool-down period lasts for about 2
minutes. The actual time will vary
depending on the external air temperature.
2
Wait until the lamp has cooled
down, and then remove the lamp
cover.
It takes approximately 30 minutes for the
lamp to cool down by itself.

Glossary
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 commercially-available
publications.
5BNC
A port used to input analog video signals.
A/V Mute
The momentary canceling of audio and video output. This projector has an [A/V
Mute] button which you can press to momentarily stop the projection of pictures and
sound. The picture and sound can be restored by pressing the [A/V Mute] button on
the projector’s control panel or the remote control once more.
Aspect ratio
The ratio between an image's length and its height. HDTV images have an aspect ratio
of 16:9 and appear elongated. The aspect ratio for standard images is 4:3.
Color
difference
signal
(component)
A type of video signal output by video equipment which actually consists of three
separate signals: a red + luminance signal (R-Y), a luminance signal (Y) and a blue +
luminance signal (B-Y). Each signal is transmitted along a separate cable. Color
difference signals generally result in a better image than composite signals (in which
the red, green and blue signals and the luminance signal are all transmitted along a
single cable).
Color
temperature
The temperature of an object which is emitting light. If the color temperature is high,
the colors tend to take on a bluish tinge. If the color temperature is lower, the colors
tend to take on a reddish tinge.
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
format).
The signals consist of the carrier signal Y (luminance signal) and the chroma (color)
signal which are contained in the color bar signal.
Contrast
The relative brightness of the light and dark areas of an image can be increased or
decreased in order to make text and graphics stand out more clearly, or to make them
appear softer. Adjusting this particular property of an image is called "contrast
adjustment".
Cool-down
The cooling process for the projector's lamp unit continues even after the [Power]
button has been pressed to turn off the lamp. After the lamp turns off, the cooling fan
continues operating, but all button operations are disabled. The length of time that this
is happening is called the "cool-down period". The cool-down period lasts for about 2
minutes. The actual time will vary depending on the external air temperature.
DFP
Abbreviation for Digital Flat Panel. Refers to a standard method for digital
transmission of video signals.
DVI
Abbreviation for Digital Visual Interface. Refers to a standard method for digital
transmission of video signals.
DVI is a standard which has also been applied to digital household electronic
equipment other than computers. It allows images to be transmitted at higher
resolutions than for DFP, and also includes a digital signal encoding function.
Freeze
The momentary pausing of image playback only. When the [Freeze] button on the
projector is pressed, the image playback only can be paused. When the [Freeze] button
is pressed again, playback resumes.
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 scanning, i = interlaced scanning)
• Screen aspect ratio of 16:9
• Dolby Digital audio reception and playback (or output)
Downloaded From projector-manual.com
101
Glossary
Interlaced
scanning
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.
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).
Remote
port
Connects an optional remote control receiver.
S-Video
images
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 High-Definition Television.
Security lock
A device consisting of a protector case with a hole in it that a commercially-available
theft-prevention cable can be passed through in order to secure the device to a table or
pillar. This projector is compatible with the Microsaver Security System manufactured
by Kensington.
Source prompt
The screen display showing the type of signal being input.
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 video signal with a resolution of 800 (horizontal) x 600 (vertical) dots which
is used by IBM PC/AT-compatible computers (DOS/V computers).
SXGA
A type of video signal with a resolution of 1,280 (horizontal) x 1,024 (vertical) dots
which is used by IBM PC/AT-compatible computers (DOS/V computers).
Synchronization
(Sync.)
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.
USB
An abbreviation for Universal Serial Bus. USB is an interface for connecting personal
computers to peripheral devices which only support relatively low data transmission
speeds.
UXGA
A type of video signal with a resolution of 1,600 (horizontal) x 1,200 (vertical) dots
which is used by IBM PC/AT-compatible computers (DOS/V computers).
VGA
A type of video signal with a resolution of 640 (horizontal) x 480 (vertical) dots which
is used by IBM PC/AT-compatible computers (DOS/V computers).
XGA
A type of video signal with a resolution of 1,024 (horizontal) x 768 (vertical) dots
which is used by IBM PC/AT-compatible computers (DOS/V computers).
YCbCr
The carrier signal which is contained in the color bar signal used in modern TV
transmissions (NTSC format). The name comes from the Y (luminance) signal and the
CbCr (chroma [color]) signals.
YPbPr
The carrier signal which is contained in the color bar signal used in high-definition TV
(HDTV) transmissions. The name comes from the Y (luminance) signal and the PbPr
(color difference) signals.

List of ESC/VP21 Commands
Command List
When a power ON command is sent to the projector, the power for the projector
turns on. When the projector is in a command ready state, it returns the '3Ah' (:)
code. Furthermore, when command processing is complete, the projector also
returns a ":" code.
The ":" code status can be used to determine whether the projector is ready or
busy. If command processing terminates with an error, an error message is
output and then the ":" code is sent.

FCC Compliance Statement
For United States Users
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits
for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules.
These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against
harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment
generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not
installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause
harmful interference to radio or television reception. However, there is
no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular
installation. If this equipment does cause interference to radio and
television reception, which can be determined by turning the
equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the
interference by one or more of the following measures.
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
• Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that
to which the receiver is connected.
• Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
WARNING
The connection of a non-shielded equipment interface cable to this
equipment will invalidate the FCC Certification or Declaration of this
device and may cause interference levels which exceed the limits
established by the FCC for this equipment. It is the responsibility of
the user to obtain and use a shielded equipment interface cable with
this device. If this equipment has more than one interface connector,
do not leave cables connected to unused interfaces. Changes or
modifications not expressly approved by the manufacturer could void
the user’s authority to operate the equipment.
