A sophisticated proprietary optical system, coupled with a hight
performance zoom lens ensures hight contrast images, superior
uniformity and edge-to-edge definition.
A new 6-segment colour wheel dramatically reduces the so
called “rainbow effect” and gives a better contrast, better
colorimetry and a lower black level to the image.
The new DMD™ chip ensures, on top of the high definition
resolution (1024 x 576 pixels), an increased contrast ratio of >
1800:1 thus delivering on the screen an even more realistic
image.
Fig. 1
Using the very latest in DLP™ technology, this projector has
been designed specifically for high quality “Home Cinema”
applications.
The renowned DCDi™ technology is adopted for deinterlacing:
conversion from interlaced to progressive produces a smooth
and natural image, without flickering, loss of vertical resolution
and jaggedness along diagonal lines.
The low-noise ventilation system – with variable speed fans –
ensures appropriate cooling and maximizes projector reliability.
Sophisticated digital processing and a wide choice of inputs
enable the connection of a variety of sources such as DVD
players, analogue and digital VCRs, analogue and digital satellite receivers and personal computers etc.
To fully appreciate your new projector we recommend the use
of a good quality screen and surround-sound system. Contact
your nearest authorized SIM2 Multimedia dealer for further
details.
The long throw zoom lens allows the position of the projector to
be located behind the viewer, thus reproducing a cinema-like
installation (Fig. 2).
SIM2 carries out comprehensive functional testing
in order to guarantee the maximum product quality.
For this reason, when you start using the product
lamp operating hours may already be at between
30 and 60.
In addition to the regular tests, the Quality Control
department performs additional statistical tests at
the time of shipment.
In this case the packing may show signs of having
been opened, and the accumulated lamp operating
hours may be slightly higher than the hours associated with the standard tests.

The Orientation adjustment in the Set up menu will allow the
projector to be used for desktop front, ceiling front, desktop
rear and ceiling rear installations (Fig. 10).
The output is activated (Voltage: 12 Vdc) when the projector is
switched on and is de-activated (no Voltage output) when the
projector is in stand-by mode.
For rear projection the screen must be translucent.
For front projection, we recommend the use of screens with
low gain specifications (i.e. 1.3 to 2). The use of high gain
screens should be avoided due to their limited viewing angle,
which is undesirable for a large audience.
Preferably, use a screen with black, non-reflecting borders,
which will perfectly frame the projected image.
Avoid light shining directly on the screen during projection as
this will reduce contrast and black level detail on the projected
image. For the true cinema experience best results are
achieved with little or no ambient light.
Furniture and other objects with reflecting surfaces, as well as
light coloured walls should be avoided, as they are likely to
interfere with the screen’s characteristics.

10 CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
The projector does not require internal cleaning. There are no
user serviceable parts inside the projector. Please refer all
service requirements to qualified personnel.
Cleaning the projector’s cover:
Use a soft slightly damp cloth. Do not use abrasive cleaners,
solvents or other harsh chemicals, as this will damage the finish
of the cover. Avoid direct cleaning of the rear panel’s screenprinting.
Cleaning the lens:
The lens may be cleaned with a very soft, non-abrasive small
brush, in order to remove dust particles. Alternatively, use a
soft dry cleaning cloth (of the type used for camera lens
cleaning) to remove fingerprints and grease marks.
11 TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
No power (Green and red LED are OFF)
Image is disturbed, unstable or noisy
- Check the power switch at the rear: it must be in position I.
- Check if the power cable has been connected correctly to a
working socket.
- Check the power socket fuse, at the rear of the projector.
- Replace the fuse on the mains socket with an identical type
(T 3.15A H) (Fig. 4).
- Should the problem persist, seek authorised technical
assistance.
- Verify compatibility of video/graphic signals with the technical
specifications of the projector.
- Check the integrity of cables connecting projector to various
sources.
- If the signal source is a terrestrial broadcast (via a VCR) check
that the receiving channel has been correctly tuned in and
that the aerial system is in good working order.
- Should the problem be present with a signal coming from a
video-recorder, ensure that the videotape is an Original “first
generation” copy and in good condition.
- Adjust the VCR’s tracking control for optimum picture performance. Ensure the VCR mode is active in the Picture menu.
The lamp is not coming on
- Allow a few minutes pause between switching off and turning
on again (from stand-by). This will allow the lamp to cool down
sufficiently.
- If the lamp doesn’t come on – even though the projector has
had sufficient time to cool down – seek technical assistance
from your nearest Dealer.
No image
- Check that the selected input is actually connected to a active
video or graphic signal.
- Check that the above source actually works.
- Verify compatibility of video/graphic signals with the technical
specifications of the projector.
- Check the integrity of cables used to connect various sources.
