Important Information
LAMP HANDLING
PRECAUTIONS
This projector uses a high-pressure mercury lamp which must be handled carefully and properly as mentioned below.
• A lamp may explode with a loud sound or burn out due to a shock, scratch, or expiration of lifetime.
• The lamp life may differ from lamp to lamp and according to the environment of use. There is not guarantee of the
same lifetime for each lamp. Some lamps may fail or terminate their life in a shorter period of time than other
similar lamps.
• A lamp gradually becomes darker with time of use.
• If the projector indicates that the lamp should be replaced (i.e., the LAMP indicator blinks red rapidly), chances of
explosion become higher. Replace the lamp with a new one immediately.
• Always keep your face away from the exhaust vent so that you do not suffer from the gas and broken shards of the
lamp.
IF A LAMP EXPLODES
If a lamp explodes, the gas and broken shards may scatter inside the projector and they may come out
of the exhaust vent. The gas contains toxic mercury.
Open windows and doors for ventilation.
If you inhale the gas or the shards of the broken lamp enter your eyes or mouth, consult the doctor
immediately.
If a lamp explodes, its shards may scatter inside the projector. Ask the Canon service representative to
clean and check the inside of the projector and replace the lamp.
DISPOSAL OF WASTE LAMP
Dispose of the mercury lamp of the projector according to the local regulation just like the fluorescent
lamp.
Lamp Replacement
•
To replace the lamp, follow all instructions provided on page 50.
•
Be sure to replace the lamp when the message [Replace with the new lamp.] appears. If you continue to use
the lamp after the lamp has reached the end of its usable life, the lamp bulb may shatter, and pieces of glass
may be scattered in the lamp case. Do not touch them as the pieces of glass may cause injury.
If this happens, contact your dealer for lamp replacement.
CAUTION
When removing the lamp from a ceiling-mounted projector, make sure that no one is under the projector. Glass fragments could fall if the lamp has been burned out.

H1 and H2: H1 is the height of the screen from the intersection of optical axis and screen surface, and H2 is the height
of the intersection when an image is projected at right angle to the screen.
TIP:
• For the relationship between the screen size and projection distance, see the table on page 61.
• The sizes in the above table have been obtained assuming that the aspect ratio is 4:3. They may vary from the actual sizes
depending on the type of the projected image.
• The Zoom lever adjusts the image size (diagonal) +/- 20%.
NOTE:
This projector can be hung from the ceiling (Ceiling mounted) with it turned up side down.
When a translucent screen is used, the projector can project an image from behind the screen (Rear).
When the projector is hung from the ceiling or projector projects an image from behind the screen, the image must be inverted
vertically or horizontally. See page 43.
• When hanging the projector from the ceiling, optional brackets (part No. LV-CL12) are required.
12
2. Installation and Connections
• Ensure that you have adequate ventilation around your
projector so heat can dissipate. Do not cover the vents
on the side or the front of the projector.
WARNING
• Installing your projector on the ceiling must be done
by a qualified technician. Contact your dealer for more
information.
• Do not attempt to install the projector yourself.
• Only use your projector on a solid, level surface. If the
projector falls to the ground, you can be injured and
the projector severely damaged.
• Do not use the projector where temperatures vary
greatly. The projector must be used at temperatures
between 41˚F (5˚C) and 95˚F (35˚C).
• Do not expose the projector to moisture, dust, or
smoke. This will harm the screen image.
Reflecting the Image
Using a mirror to reflect your projector's image enables
you to enjoy a much larger image. Contact your dealer if
you need a mirror system. If you're using a mirror system and your image is inverted, use the MENU and
buttons on your projector cabinet or
SELECT
your remote control to correct the orientation. See page
43.

2. Installation and Connections
� Making Connections
NOTE: When using with a notebook PC, be sure to connect between the projector and the notebook PC before turning on the
power to the notebook PC. In most cases signal cannot be output from RGB output unless the notebook PC is turned on after
connecting with the projector.
* If the screen goes blank while using your remote control, it may be the result of the computer's screen-saver or power
management software.
Enabling the computer’s external display
Displaying an image on the notebook PC’s screen does not necessarily mean it outputs a signal to the projector.
When using a PC compatible laptop, a combination of function keys will enable/disable the external display.
Usually, the combination of the ‘Fn” key along with one of the 12 function keys gets the external display to come on
or off. For more details, refer to your computer’s owner’s manual.

6. Maintenance
쐋 Replacing the Lamp
After your lamp has been operating for 2000* hours (up to 3000* hours in Quiet mode) or longer, the LAMP indicator
in the cabinet will blink red and the message “Replace with the new lamp.” will appear. Even though the lamp may
still be working, replace it at 2000* (up to 3000* hours in Quiet mode) hours to maintain optimal projector performance.
After replacing the lamp, be sure to clear the lamp counter. See page 47.
CAUTION
•
DO NOT TOUCH THE LAMP immediately after it has been used. It will be extremely hot. Turn the projector off,
wait 30 seconds, turn off the main power switch and then disconnect the power cord. Allow at least one hour for
the lamp to cool before handling.
•
DO NOT REMOVE ANY SCREWS except two lamp case screws. You could receive an electric shock.
•
Do not break the glass on the lamp housing.
Keep finger prints off the glass surface on the lamp housing. Leaving finger prints in the glass surface might
cause an unwanted shadow and poor picture quality.
•
The projector will turn off and go into standby mode after 2100* (up to 3100* hours in Quiet mode) hours of
service. If this happens, be sure to replace the lamp. If you continue to use the lamp after 2000* hours (up to
3000* hours in Quiet mode) of use, the lamp bulb may shatter, and pieces of glass may be scattered in the lamp
case. Do not touch them as the pieces of glass may cause injury. If this happens, contact your dealer for lamp
replacement.
*NOTE: The projector will turn off and go into standby mode after 2100 (up to 3100 hours in Quiet mode) hours of service.
A lamp may burn out before the LAMP indicator blinks.
To replace the lamp:
Optional lamp and tools needed for replacement:
• Replacement lamp LV-LP24
• Phillips screwdriver or equivalent
1. Place the projector on a soft cloth and turn it over to access the lamp cover on the bottom.
2. Use a Philips screwdriver to push and release the tab.
Push up and remove the lamp cover.

6. Maintenance
3. Loosen the two screws securing the lamp until the phillips screwdriver goes into a freewheeling condition. The two screws are not removable.
NOTE: Do not remove any screws except these two screws.
Remove the lamp by holding it.
CAUTION:
DO NOT TOUCH THE LAMP immediately after it has been used. It will be extremely hot. Before handling, turn
the projector off, wait until the cooling fans stop, turn off the main power switch, disconnect the power cord and
then allow at least 60 minutes for the lamp to cool.
Interlock
NOTE: There is an interlock on this case to prevent the risk of electrical shock. Do not attempt to circumvent this interlock.
4. Insert a new lamp until the lamp is plugged into the socket.
CAUTION
Do not use a lamp other than the replacement lamp LV-LP24.
This may be ordered from your dealer.
Secure it in place with the two screws.
Be sure to tighten the screws.
5. Reattach the lamp cover.
Slip the lamp cover back until it snaps into place.
51
6. Maintenance
6. Connect the supplied power cord, turn on the Main Power switch and turn on the projector.
7. Finally, select the menu → [Factory default] → [Lamp counter] to reset the lamp usage hours.
NOTE: When the lamp exceeds 2100 hours (up to 3100 hours in Quiet mode) of service, the projector cannot turn on and the
menu is not displayed.
If this happens, press the INFO. button on the remote control for ten seconds to reset the lamp clock back to zero.

Common Problems & Solutions (See also "POWER/WARNING/LAMP Indicator" on page 53.)
Problem
Check These Items
Does not turn on
• Check that the power cord is plugged in and that the power button on the projector cabinet or the remote
control is on. See pages 19 and 20.
• Ensure that the lamp cover is installed correctly. See page 51.
• Check to see if the projector has overheated or the lamp usage exceeds 2100 hours (up to 3100 hours : Quiet
mode). If there is insufficient ventilation around the projector or if the room where you’re presenting is particularly warm, move the projector to a cooler location.
• The lamp may fail to light. Wait a full minute and then turn on the power again.
• The lamp has reached the end of its usable life. Replace the lamp.
Will turn off
• Ensure that the Power management or Off timer is off. See page 45.
No picture
• Use the INPUT button to select your source (Computer 1, Computer 2, Video or S-Video). See page 22. If there
is still no picture, press the button again.
• Ensure your cables are connected properly.
• Use menus to adjust the brightness and contrast. See page 40.
• Remove the lens cap.
• Reset the settings or adjustments to factory preset levels using the “Factory default” in the Menu. See page 47.
• Enter your registered Password if the Password function is enabled. See page 44.
• When using with a notebook PC, be sure to connect between the projector and the notebook PC before turning
on the power to the notebook PC. In most cases signal cannot be output from RGB output unless the notebook
PC is turned on after connecting with the projector.
* If the screen goes blank while using your remote control, it may be the result of the computer's screensaver or power management software.
• See also the next page.
Picture suddenly
becomes dark
• When the room where you' re presenting is particularly warm → Move the projector to a cooler location.
Color tone or Color
balance is unusual
• Check if an appropriate color is selected in "Screen color". If so, select an appropriate option. See page 39.
• Adjust "Color balance" in "Image adjustment". See page 40.

7. Appendix
If there is no picture, or the picture is not displayed correctly.
•
Power on process for the projector and the PC.
Be sure to connect the RGB cable between the projector and the computer before turning on the computer.
There are some notebook PCs, which do not output signal unless there is a projector or monitor connected first.
NOTE: You can check the horizontal frequency of the current signal in the projector’s menu under Information. If it reads
“0kHz”, this means there is no signal being output from the computer. See page 46 or go to next step.
•
Enabling the computer’s external display.
Displaying an image on the notebook PC’s screen does not necessarily mean it outputs a signal to the projector. When using a PC compatible laptop, a combination of function keys will enable/disable the external display.
Usually, the combination of the ‘Fn” key along with one of the 12 function keys gets the external display to come
on or off. For more details, refer to your computer’s owner’s manual.
•
Non-standard signal output from the computer
If the output signal from a notebook PC is not an industry standard, the projected image may not be displayed
correctly. Should this happen, deactivate the notebook PC’s LCD screen when the projector display is in use.
Each notebook PC has a different way of deactivate/reactivate the local LCD screens as described in the
previous step. Refer to your computer’s documentation for detailed information.
•
Image displayed is incorrect when using a Macintosh
When using a Macintosh with the projector, set the DIPswitch of the Mac adapter (not supplied with the projector) according to your resolution. After setting, restart your Macintosh for the changes to take affect.
For setting display modes other than those supported by your Macintosh and the projector, changing the DIP
switch on a Mac adapter may bounce an image slightly or may display nothing. Should this happen, set the DIP
switch to the 13” fixed mode and then restart your Macintosh. After that, restore the DIP switches to a
displayable mode and then restart the Macintosh again.
NOTE: A Video Adapter cable manufactured by Apple Computer is needed for a PowerBook which does not have a mini D-Sub
15-pin connector.
•
Mirroring on a PowerBook
* When using the projector with a Macintosh PowerBook, output may not be set to 1024 x 768 unless “mirroring” is off on your PowerBook. Refer to owner’s manual supplied with your Macintosh computer for mirroring.
•
Folders or icons are hidden on the Macintosh screen
Folders or icons may not be seen on the screen. Should this happen, select [View] → [Arrange] from the Apple
menu and arrange icons.
