WARNING ►HOT! : Do not touch around the lamp cover and the exhaust
vents during use or just after use, since it is too hot.
►Do not look into the lens or vents while the lamp is on, since the strong light
is not good for your eyes.
►Do not handle the elevator knobs without holding the projector, since the
projector may drop down.
CAUTION ►Maintain normal ventilation to prevent the projector from heating
up. Do not cover, block or plug up the vents. Do not place anything that can stick or
be sucked to the vents, around the intake vents. Clean the air filter periodically.
►Do not use the security slot to prevent the projector from falling down, since it
is not designed for it.

WARNING ►Do not disassemble or modify the projector and accessories.
►Be careful not to damage the cables, and do not use damaged cables.
CAUTION ►Turn off all devices and unplug their power cords prior to
connecting them to projector. Connecting a live device to the projector may
generate extremely loud noises or other abnormalities that may result in
malfunction or damage to the device and the projector.
►Use appropriate accessory or otherwise designed cables. Ask your dealer
about non-accessory cables which may have to be of a specific length or
equipped with a core. For cables with a core only at one end, connect the end
with the core to the projector.
►Make sure that devices are connected to the correct ports. An incorrect
connection may result in malfunction or damage to the device and the projector.

Setting up
Connecting your devices (continued)
NOTE • Be sure to read the manuals for devices before connecting them to the
projector, and make sure that all the devices are suitable to be connected with this product.
Before connecting to a PC, check the signal level, the signal timing, and the resolution.
- Some signal may need an adapter to input this projector.
- Some PCs have multiple screen display modes that may include some signals which
are not supported by this projector.
- Although the projector can display signals with resolution up to UXGA (1600X1200),
the signal will be converted to the projector’s panel resolution before being displayed.
The best display performance will be achieved if the resolutions of the input signal and
the projector panel are identical.
• While connecting, make sure that the shape of the cable's connector fits the port to
connect with. And be sure to tighten the screws on connectors with screws.
• When connecting a laptop PC to the projector, be sure to activate the PC’s external
RGB output. (Set the laptop PC to CRT display or to simultaneous LCD and CRT
display.) For details on how this is done, please refer to the instruction manual of the
corresponding laptop PC.
• When the picture resolution is changed on a pc depending on an input, automatic
adjustment function may take some time and may not be completed. In this case,
you may not be able to see a check box to select “Yes/No” for the new resolution on
Windows. Then the resolution will go back to the original. It might be recommended to
use other CRT or LCD monitors to change the resolution.
• In some cases, this projector may not display a proper picture or display any picture on
screen. For example, automatic adjustment may not function correctly with some input
signals. An input signal of composite sync or sync on G may confuse this projector, so
the projector may not display a proper picture.
• The HDMI port of this model is compatible with HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection)
and therefore capable of displaying a video signal from HDCP compatible DVD players or the like.
About Plug-and-Play capability
Plug-and-Play is a system composed of a PC, its operating system and peripheral equipment
(i.e. display devices). This projector is VESA DDC 2B compatible. Plug-and-Play can be used
by connecting this projector to a pc that is VESA DDC (display data channel) compatible.
• Take advantage of this feature by connecting an RGB cable to the COMPUTER IN1
port (DDC 2B compatible). Plug-and-Play may not work properly if any other type of
connection is attempted.
• Please use the standard drivers in your pc as this projector is a Plug-and-Play monitor.
NOTE for HDMI
• The HDMI supports the following signals.
-Video signal : 525i(480i),525p(480p),625i(576i),750p(720p),1125i(1080i),1125p(1080p)
-PC signals : See User’s Manual (detailed) Technical
-Audio signal : Format Linear PCM
Sampling Frequency 48kHz / 44.1kHz / 32kHz
• This projector can be connected with another equipment that has HDMI or DVI connector, but
with some equipment the projector may not work properly, something like no video or no audio.
• Be sure to use an HDMI cable that has the HDMI logo.
• When the projector is connected with a device having DVI connector, use a DVI to
HDMI cable to connect with the HDMI input and an audio cable to connect with one of
the Audio input.

About the remote control signal
The remote control works with the projector’s
remote sensor. This projector has a remote sensor
on the front.
The sensor senses the signal within the following
range when the sensor is active:
60 degrees (30 degrees to the left and right of the
sensor) within 3 meters about.
30º
30º
Approx.
3m
NOTE • The remote control signal reflected in the screen or the like may be
available. If it is difficult to send the signal to the sensor directly, attempt to make the
signal reflect.
• The remote control uses infrared light to send signals to the projector (Class 1 LED),
so be sure to use the remote control in an area free from obstacles that could block the
remote control’s signal to the projector.
• The remote control may not work correctly if strong light (such as direct sun light) or light
from an extremely close range (such as from an inverter fluorescent lamp) shines on the
remote sensor of the projector. Adjust the position of projector avoiding those lights.

Lamp warning
HIGH VOLTAGE
HIGH TEMPERATURE
HIGH PRESSURE
WARNING ►The projector uses a high-pressure mercury glass lamp. The
lamp can break with a loud bang, or burn out, if jolted or scratched, handled
while hot, or worn over time. Note that each lamp has a different lifetime, and
some may burst or burn out soon after you start using them. In addition, when
the bulb bursts, it is possible for shards of glass to fly into the lamp housing, and
for gas containing mercury to escape from the projector’s vent holes.
►About disposal of a lamp: This product contains a mercury lamp; do not put
it in a trash. Dispose of it in accordance with environmental laws.
•F
or lamp recycling, go to www.lamprecycle.org. (in the US).
• For product disposal, contact your local government agency
or www.eiae.org (in the US) or www.epsc.ca (in Canada).
For more information, call your dealer.
Disconnect
the plug
from the
power
outlet
• If the lamp should break (it will make a loud bang when it does),
unplug the power cord from the outlet, and make sure to request a
replacement lamp from your local dealer. Note that shards of glass
could damage the projector’s internals, or cause injury during handling,
so please do not try to clean the projector or replace the lamp yourself.
• If the lamp should break (it will make a loud bang when it does),
ventilate the room well, and make sure not to breathe the gas that
comes out of the projector vents, or get it in your eyes or mouth.
• Before replacing the lamp, turn the projector off and unplug the power
cord, then wait at least 45 minutes for the lamp to cool sufficiently.
Handling the lamp while hot can cause burns, as well as damaging the
lamp.
• Never unscrew except the appointed (marked by an arrow) screws.
• Do not open the lamp cover while the projector is suspended from
above. This is dangerous, since if the lamp’s bulb has broken, the
shards will fall out when the cover is opened. In addition, working in
high places is dangerous, so ask your local dealer to have the lamp
replaced even if the bulb is not broken.
• Do not use the projector with the lamp cover removed. At the lamp
replacing, make sure that the screws are screwed in firmly. Loose
screws could result in damage or injury.
• Use only the lamp of the specified type.
• If the lamp breaks soon after the first time it is used, it is possible
that there are electrical problems elsewhere besides the lamp. If this
happens, contact your local dealer or a service representative.
• Handle with care: jolting or scratching could cause the lamp bulb to burst during use.
• Using the lamp for long periods of time, could cause it dark, not to light
up or to burst. When the pictures appear dark, or when the color tone
is poor, please replace the lamp as soon as possible. Do not use old
(used) lamps; this is a cause of breakage.
