Place of installation
For safety’s sake, refrain from setting the projector at
any place subjected to high temperature and high
humidity. Please maintain an operating temperature,
humidity, and altitude as specified below.
• Operating temperature: between +41°F (+5°C) and
+95°F (+35°C)
• Operating humidity: between 30 and 90%
• Never put any heat-producing device under the projector so that the projector does not overheat.
• Do not attach the projector to a place that is unstable or subject to vibration.
• Do not install the projector near any equipment that
produces a strong magnetic field. Also refrain from
installing near the projector any cable carrying a
large current.
• Place the projector on a solid, vibration free surface: otherwise it may fall, causing serious injury
to a child or adult, and serious damage to the product.
• Do not stand the projector: it may fall, causing serious injury and damage to the projector.
• Slanting the projector more than ±10˚(right and left)
or ±15˚ (front and rear) may cause trouble or explosion of the lamp.
• Do not place the projector near air-conditioning unit
or heater to avoid hot air to the exhaust and ventilation hole of the projector.
Do not face the projector lens to the
sun.
It can lead to fire.
Use correct voltage.

Preparing the projector for operation
Getting ready for projection
Adjusting the angle of projection
1. Connect the power cord provided to the projector.
2. Connect the power cord to the wall power outlet.
3. Remove the lens cap.
For the best result, project onto a flat screen with a 90
degree angle to the floor. If necessary, tilt the projector
by adjusting two foot adjustments on the bottom of the
projector.
Warning:
• Do not look directly into the lens when projector is
“ON”.
• The lens cap is for protecting the lens. If you leave
the power on with the cap on, the cap may be warped.
Please remove the lens cap when you turn the power
on.
• This projector is equipped with the power cords for
both U.S. and Europe. Use the appropriate power
cord for your country.
• A three-pin grounding type power plug is used with
the projector. Do not remove the grounding pin on
the power plug. If you are unable to insert the plug
into the outlet, contact your electrician to replace
your A/C outlet.
• The supplied power cord for U.S. is used for 120V
only. Never connect to any outlet or power supply
having a different voltage or frequency. If you
connect to the power supply having a different
voltage, please use the appropriate power cord.
• Use 100-240V AC 50/60Hz correct voltage otherwise it may lead to fire or electric shock.
• Do not place any objects on the power cord, and keep
the projector away from heat sources to avoid breaking the power cord. A broken power cord can cause
fire or electric shock.
• Do not revise or alter the power cord otherwise it
may cause fire or electric shock.
Contact your dealer if the cord is broken.

this color temperature by changing the numbers of contrast
blue and red.
To set the color temperature high:
Set the contrast B (Blue) number high, and the contrast R
(Red) number low.
To set the color temperature low:
Set the contrast B (Blue) number low, and the contrast R
(Red) number high.
Although this projector sets proper signal systems
automatically for the image signal from personal
computers, it cannot be applied to some of personal
computers. In this case, press the AUTO POSITION
button. If the images are still not projected correctly,

How to reset the operation
time meter
Plug in the power cord, switch on the projector, and
reset lamp time by pressing the $, % and POWER
buttons simultaneously.
Caution:
• Do not spill liquid on the lamp or place it near flammable objects or where children can touch it. Otherwise, it could cause injury or fire.
• Be sure that the projector guide is firmly inserted
between the right and left lamp guides.
Important:
• The projector will not turn on if you do not secure
the lamp lid.
• You must reset the operation time meter after
you replace the lamp.
• Do not reset the operation time meter unless the
lamp has been replaced.
Interval of the lamp replacement
The interval of the lamp replacement about 1,500 hours of
consecutive use. Replacement span may differ according to
operating environment, and may be shorter than 1,500 hours.
Decreases in luminescence and/or color brightness will indicate that the light source lamp needs to be replaced. When
lamp operation time exceeds 1,000 hours*1, the indicator
will flash alternately between green and red (while the lamp
is in operation; when the lamp is not in operation, the indicator will appear red only). When the lamp has been used
for about 1,400 hours*1, the message “LAMP!!.” will appear
on the screen for one minute everytime the power is turned
on. When the lamp has been used for about 1,500 hours*1,*2,
the projector will automatically shut off for safety and the
power indicator light will be red. The projector cannot be
used until the lamp has been replaced and operation timer
has been reset.
Caution:
• The lamp is fragile. If broken, be careful not to cut yourself with glass fragments.
• The replacement span of the lamp depends on the environment. For replacement lamps, please contact your
dealer.
The projector automatically shuts off when the
lamp is used up in about 1,500 hours*2, *2 and cannot be used until the lamp is replaced and the
internal timer is reset.
*1) When LAMP MODE of the INSTALLATION
menu is set to STANDARD.
*2) When LAMP MODE is set to low, the duration will
be extended maximum up to 2,000 hours.
Maintenance
Cleaning the air-filter
Cleaning the lens
Use a standard lens-cleaning brush or a piece of lens
tissue dampened with lens cleaning fluid. The lens surface is fragile. Use only recommended, nonabrasive lenscleaning materials. Do not touch the lens with your fingers.
Clean the air-filter frequently. If the filter or ventilation
grille become clogged with dirt or dust, the temperature
inside the projector may rise and shut off the power (the
TEMP indicator starts to blink red).
1. To remove the filter cover, press the
ridged area gently, push the cover in
the direction of the arrow and lift.
2. Remove the air-filter from the filter cover.
3. Wash the air-filter.
• Use water or a mild detergent diluted with

Rinse the filter
thoroughly and let it dry
completely.
4. Attach the filter to the cover.

This projector uses RXD, TXD and GND lines for RS-232C control.
For RS-232C cable,the reverse type cable should be used.
2) Control command diagram
The command is structured by the address code, function code, data code and end code. The length of the
command is different by each function.

3) Control sequence
(1) Send the command from a personal computer to the projector. (The commands must be sent at least
400ms apart.)
(2) The projector will send a return command 400ms* after it has received an end code. If the command is
not received correctly, the projector will not send the return command.
(3) The personal computer checks the command and confirms if the command which has been sent has been
executed or not.
(4) This projector sends various codes other than the return code. When having a control sequence by RS232C, reject other codes from personal computer side.
•
* : The sending time of return command may delay depending on the condition (during changing the
input signal, etc.).
