Lamp replacement / Maintenance
The lamp is designed to project the image on the LCD
panels. When the lamp no longer functions, replace it
with a new one.
Caution:
• Do not remove the lamp immediately after using
the projector. You may get burned because the
lamp is very hot after use.
• Before replacing the lamp, press the POWER
button to turn off the lamp and wait for two
minutes for the lamp and LCD panels to cool
down. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet
and wait one hour for the lamp to cool down
completely.

may fall out through the grilles and some may
remain inside of the projector or the lamp box.
When taking the lamp box out, be sure to turn
over the projector and hold the handle of the lamp
box to avoid injury due to the glass fragments.
• If the lamp should break, never shake the lamp
box or hold it in front of your face after removing
it. The glass fragments may fall out and cause
injury to your eyes.

• Be sure to reset the lamp operation time whenever you replace the lamp.
• Do not reset the lamp operation time unless you
replace the lamp.
Caution:
• The lamp is fragile. If it is broken, be careful not
to cut yourself with glass fragments.
• Contact your dealer for a new lamp.
Interval of the lamp replacement
The recommended interval of the lamp replacement
is about 2,000-2,500 hours of consecutive use.
However, the replacement interval may be shorter
than such hours depending on the operating
conditions. Decreases in the luminescence and/or the
color brightness will also indicate that the light
source lamp needs to be replaced. When the lamp
operation time exceeds the time elapsed until the
lamp shutdown notice*1 is issued, the indicator will
blink green and red alternately while the lamp is in
operation (and while the lamp is not in operation, the
indicator will blink red only). In addition, the lamp
replacement message will appear on the screen for
one minute every time the power is turned on. When
the lamp operation time exceeds the time elapsed
until the lamp shutdown warning*2 is issued, the
replacement message will appear on the screen for
one minute every time the power is turned on. When
the lamp operation time exceeds the time elapsed
until the lamp shutdown*3, the projector will
automatically shut off for safety purposes and the
power and lamp indicator will illuminate red. The
projector can’t start operating again until the lamp is
replaced and the operation timer is reset.
The projector automatically shuts off when the
lamp operation time exceeds the time elapsed
until the lamp shutdown*3. It can’t start
operating again until the lamp is replaced and
