Be sure to read the following safeguards when setting up
your projector.
■ Potential hazard of glass particles if
lamp ruptures. In case of lamp rupture,
contact your nearest Authorized
SharpVision Service Center or Dealer
for replacement.
See “Replacing the Lamp” on pages 80-82.
CAUTION
PRECAUCIÓN
PRÉCAUTION
BQC-XVZ100005
Cautions concerning the setup of the projector
■ For minimal servicing and to maintain high image quality, SHARP 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 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
Authorized SharpVision Service Center or Dealer.
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.
The projector may safely be tilted to a maximum
angle of 5 degrees.
■ Placement should be within ±5 degrees.
Do not subject the projector to hard impact and/
or vibration.
■ Take care with the lens so as not to hit or damage the
surface of the lens.
Rest your eyes occasionally.
■ Watching the screen for long hours continuously will
make your eyes tired. Be sure to occasionally rest your
eyes.
Avoid locations with high or low temperature.
■ The operating temperature for the projector is from 41°F
to 95°F (+5°C to +35°C).
■ The storage temperature for the projector is from
–4°F to 140°F (–20°C to +60°C).
Introduction
Caution concerning the lamp unit
■ Be sure that the intake vent and the exhaust vent are
not obstructed.
■ If the cooling fan becomes obstructed, a protection circuit will automatically put the projector into the standby
mode. This does not indicate a malfunction. 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.
Cautions regarding the transportation of the projector
■ When transporting the projector, be sure not to subject
it to hard impact and/or vibration, as this can result in
damage. Take extra caution with the lens. Before moving the projector, be sure to unplug the power cord from
the wall outlet, and disconnect any other cables connected to it.
Other connected equipment
■ When connecting a computer or other audio-visual
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 operation manuals of the projector and
the equipment to be connected for instructions on how
to make the connections.
Temperature monitor function
■ If the projector starts to overheat
due to setup problems or blockage
of the air vents, “
” and
“
” will blink 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 cooling-off period the projector
will enter the standby mode. Refer to “Maintenance Indicators” on page 78 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 create damage due to the
rise in internal temperature, as the cooling fan also
stops.
Do not block the intake and exhaust vents.
■ Allow at least 11.8" (30 cm) of space between the exhaust vent and the nearest wall or obstruction.

Setup
Setting up the Screen
Position the projector perpendicular to the screen with all 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 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 screen in a sunny or bright room.
• A polarizing screen cannot be used with this projector.
Standard Setup (Front Projection)
■ Place the projector at the required distance from the screen according to the desired picture size. (See
page 31.)
Screen size : 100 inches (254 cm)
Aspect ratio : 16:9
Example of Standard Setup
• The distance from the screen to the projector

Regarding the Lamp
Lamp
■ It is recommended that the lamp (sold separately) be replaced after approximately 1,900 cumulative
hours of use or when you notice a significant deterioration in the picture and color quality. The lamp
usage time can be checked with “Lamp Timer” in the “Options” menu on the menu screen.
■ For lamp replacement, please consult your nearest Authorized SharpVision Service Center or Dealer.
■ The actual lamp service life may be less than 2,000 hours depending on the environment in which
the projector is used.
IMPORTANT NOTE TO U.S. CUSTOMERS:
The lamp included with this projector is backed by a 90-day parts and labor limited warranty. All service
of this projector under warranty, including lamp replacement, must be obtained through an Authorized
SharpVision Service Center or Dealer. For the name of the nearest Authorized SharpVision Service
U.S.A. ONLY
Center or Dealer, please call toll-free: 1-877-DTV-SHARP (1-877-388-7427).
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 replacement indicator and on-screen display icon are illuminated or flash, 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 with 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 Authorized SharpVision
Service Center or Dealer to remove the damaged lamp and assure safe operation.
Replacing the Lamp
Caution
• Do not remove the lamp unit immediately after operation of the projector. The lamp will be hot and touching
it can lead to 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.
■ If the new lamp does not light after replacement, take your projector to the nearest Authorized
SharpVision Service Center or Dealer for repair. Purchase a replacement lamp unit of type BQCXVZ100005 from your nearest Authorized SharpVision Service Center or Dealer. Then carefully change
the lamp by following the instructions described in this section. If you wish, you may have the lamp
replaced at your nearest Authorized SharpVision Service Center or Dealer.

Info
• When more than one code is being sent, send each command only after the response code for the previous
command from the projector is verified.
• In the case of transmitting commands during standby, it takes a maximum of 30 seconds until the response
code is received.
• When the power is turned on during standby with the “POWER ON” command, wait for at least 30 seconds
after the power has been turned on, and then transmit the next command.
Note
• When using the computer control function of the projector, the projector’s operating status cannot be read
by the computer. Therefore, confirm the status by transmitting the display commands for each adjustment
menu and checking the status with the on-screen display. If the projector receives a command other than a
menu display command, it will execute the command without displaying the on-screen display.
Commands
Example:
• When “BRIGHT” of INPUT 1 image adjustment is set to –10.

Glossary
Advanced intelligent compression
High quality resizing of lower and higher resolution images to fit the projector’s native resolution.
Aspect Ratio
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
Optimizes projected computer images by automatically adjusting certain characteristics.
Background
Initial setting image projected when no signal is
being output.
Clock
Clock adjustment is used to adjust vertical noise
when clock level is incorrect.
CLR Temp (Color temperature)
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)
Function allows you individually adjust the display
characteristics of six colors (R: Red, Y: Yellow, G:
Green, C: Cyan, B: Blue, M: Magenta)
Digital Shift Setting
The image can be moved vertically when the image display mode is set to SMART STRETCH or
CINEMA ZOOM during input of video or DTV signals.
Dot by dot
Gamma
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.
IP Mode
The progressive display projects a smoother video
image. You can select three different modes: 2D
Progressive, 3D Progressive and Film Mode.
Keystone correction
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
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.
Resize
Allows you to modify or customize the picture display mode to enhance the input image. You can
select six different modes: SIDE BAR, SMART
STRETCH, CINEMA ZOOM, STRETCH, DOT BY
DOT or NORMAL.
Smart Stretch
Mode that stretches the right and left sides of the
4:3 image horizontally while maintaining the aspect ratio around the center of the image to display it on the WIDE screen.
Stretch
Mode that stretches the 4:3 image horizontally to
display it fully on a 16:9 screen.
Mode that projects images in their native resolution.
