Why am I unable to access the
SMTP server?
Why am I unable to receive the
test alert email even though the
projector already indicates the
test mail is already sent?
1 Check with your MIS or network
administrator whether the SMTP server
function is open for the projector and the
IP assigned to the projector is allowed to
access the SMTP server. The projector’s
SMTP socket port number is 25, this
cannot be changed.
2 Check if the out going SMTP server, user
name, and password are set correctly.
3 Some SMTP servers will check whether the
mail address of "From" correlates with the
"User name" and "Password". For example,
you use test@dell.com as the mail address
in "From". You should also use
test@dell.com account information for the
User name and the password to log in the
SMTP server.
It could be because the SMTP server
recognized the alert mail as a spam mail or
because of the SMTP server restriction. Check
with your MIS or network administrator for
the SMTP server’s setting.

check the lamp module and ensure that it is
properly installed.
If the LAMP light and the Power light are
blinking amber, the lamp driver has failed and
the projector will automatically shut down.
If the LAMP and TEMP light are blinking
amber and the Power light is solid blue, the
color wheel has failed and the projector will
automatically shut down.
To clear the protection mode, press and hold
the POWER button for 10 seconds.
TEMP light is solid amber
The projector has overheated. The display
automatically shuts down. Turn the display on
again after the projector cools down. If the

Changing the Lamp
CAUTION: Before you begin any of the procedures in this section, follow the
Safety Instructions as described on page 10.
Replace the lamp when the message "Lamp is approaching the end of its
useful life in the operation. Replacement suggested!
www.dell.com/lamps" appears on the screen. If this problem persists after
replacing the lamp, contact Dell™. For more information, see Contacting Dell™on
page 119.
CAUTION: Use an original lamp to ensure safe and optimal working condition
of your projector.
CAUTION: The lamp becomes very hot when in use. Do not attempt to replace
the lamp until the projector has been allowed to cool down for at least 30
minutes.
CAUTION: Do not touch the bulb or the lamp glass at any time. Projector
lamps are very fragile and may shatter if touched. The shattered glass pieces
are sharp and can cause injury.
CAUTION: If the lamp shatters, remove all broken pieces from the projector
and dispose or recycle according to state, local, or federal law. For more
information see www.dell.com/hg.
1 Turn off the projector and disconnect the power cord.
2 Let the projector cool for at least 30 minutes.
3 Loosen the two screws that secure the
lamp cover, and remove the cover.
4 Loosen the two screws that secure the
lamp.
5 Pull the lamp up by its metal handle.
NOTE: Dell™ may require lamps
replaced under warranty to be returned
to Dell™. Otherwise, contact your local
waste disposal agency for the address
of the nearest deposit site.
6 Replace with the new lamp.
7 Tighten the two screws that secure the
lamp.
8 Replace the lamp cover and tighten the
two screws.

NOTE: The lamp life rating for any projector is a measure of brightness
degradation only, and is not a specification for the time it takes a lamp to fail
and cease light output. Lamp life is defined as the time it takes for more than 50
percent of a lamp sample population to have brightness decrease by
approximately 50 percent of the rated lumens for the specified lamp. The lamp
life rating is not guaranteed in any way. The actual operating life span of a
projector lamp will vary according to operating conditions and usage patterns.
Usage of a projector in stressful conditions which may include dusty
environments, under high temperatures, many hours per day and abrupt
powering-off will most likely result in a lamp’s shortened operating life span or
possible lamp failure.

Appendix: Glossary
ANSI Lumens — A standard for measuring the brightness. It is calculated by
dividing a square meter image into nine equal rectangles, measuring the lux (or
brightness) reading at the center of each rectangle, and averaging these nine
points.
Aspect Ratio — The most popular aspect ratio is 4:3 (4 by 3). Early television and
computer video formats are in a 4:3 aspect ratio, which means that the width of
the image is 4/3 times the height.
Brightness — The amount of light emitted from a display or projection display or
projection device. The brightness of projector is measured by ANSI lumens.
Color Temperature — The color appearance of white light. Low color
temperature implies warmer (more yellow/red) light while high color temperature
implies a colder (more blue) light. The standard unit for color temperature is
Kelvin (K).
Component Video — A method of delivering quality video in a format that
consists of the luminance signal and two separate chrominance signals and are
defined as Y'Pb'Pr' for analog component and Y'Cb'Cr' for digital component.
Component video is available on DVD players.
Composite Video — A video signal that combines the luma (brightness), chroma
(color), burst (color reference), and sync (horizontal and vertical synchronizing
signals) into a signal waveform carried on a single wire pair. There are three kind of
formats, namely, NTSC, PAL and SECAM.
Compressed Resolution — If the input images are of higher resolution than the
native resolution of the projector, the resulting image will be scaled to fit the
native resolution of the projector. The nature of compression in a digital device
means that some image content is lost.
Contrast Ratio — Range of light and dark values in a picture, or the ratio between
their maximum and minimum values. There are two methods used by the
projection industry to measure the ratio:
1 Full On/Off — measures the ratio of the light output of an all white image (full
on) and the light output of an all black (full off) image.
2 ANSI — measures a pattern of 16 alternating black and white rectangles. The
average light output from the white rectangles is divided by the average light
output of the black rectangles to determine the ANSI contrast ratio.
Full On/Off contrast is always a larger number than ANSI contrast for the same
projector.

dB — decibel — A unit used to express relative difference in power or intensity,
usually between two acoustic or electric signals, equal to ten times the common
logarithm of the ratio of the two levels.
Diagonal Screen — A method of measuring the size of a screen or a projected
image. It measures from one corner to the opposite corner. A 9FT high, 12FT
wide, screen has a diagonal of 15FT. This document assumes that the diagonal
dimensions are for the traditional 4:3 ratio of a computer image as per the example
above.
DHCP — Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol — A network protocol that
enables a server to automatically assign a TCP/IP address to a device.
DLP® — Digital Light Processing™ — Reflective display technology developed by
Texas Instruments, using small manipulated mirrors. Light passes through a color
filter is sent to the DLP mirrors which arrange the RGB colors into a picture
projected onto screen, also known as DMD.
DMD — Digital Micro-Mirror Device — Each DMD consists of thousands of
tilting, microscopic aluminum alloy mirrors mounted on a hidden yoke.
DNS — Domain Name System — An internet service that translates domain
names into IP addresses.
Focal Length — The distance from the surface of a lens to its focal point.
Frequency — It is the rate of repetition in cycles per seconds of electrical signals.
Measured in Hz (Hertz).
HDCP — High-Bandwidth Digital-Content Protection — A specification
developed by Intel™ Corporation to protect digital entertainment across digital
interface, such as DVI, HDMI.
HDMI — High-Definition Multimedia Interface — HDMI carries both
uncompressed high definition video along with digital audio and device control
data in a single connector.
Hz (Hertz) — Unit of frequency.
IEEE802.11 — A set of standards for wireless local are network (WLAN)
communication. 802.11b/g uses the 2.4GHz band.
Keystone Correction — Device that will correct an image of the distortion
(usually a wide-top narrow-bottom effect) of a projected image caused by
improper projector to screen angle.
Maximum Distance — The distance from a screen the projector can be to cast an
image that is usable (bright enough) in a fully darkened room.
Maximum Image Size — The largest image a projector can throw in a darkened
room. This is usually limited by focal range of the optics.

Minimum Distance — The closest position that a projector can focus an image
onto a screen.
NTSC — National Television Standards Committee. North American standard for
