Features of the Projector
Image appearance can be selected to match the
projection environment (Color Mode)
The optimum images for the location can be projected simply by selecting the desired color mode from the
following seven preset modes.
If "Natural", "Theatre", "x.v.Color", "Theatre Black 1" or "Theatre Black 2" is selected, the Epson Cinema
Filter effect is applied automatically to increase the contrast and to make skin tones appear with more natural
tints.

" mode realizes more natural color
reproduction
This mode is compatible with the extended-gamut color space standard for video (xvYCC).
Extended-gamut color images output by equipment supporting this standard are more faithful to the original,
and the viewer can enjoy clearer, more natural images.
p.18
Sophisticated color adjustment

In addition to the "Color Mode", the absolute color temperature and skin tones can be adjusted by simple
procedures to render the picture even more to your own liking. Further, you can adjust gamma, the offset and
gain for RGB colors, and the hue, saturation, and brightness of RGBCMY colors, to create colors that match the
image.
p.20
Features of the Projector
Equipped with a wideangle lens shift function
The lens shift function allows the position of the
projected images to be adjusted vertically and
horizontally without distorting the images.
This can allow the projector to be set up with greater
freedom, even if it is suspended from a ceiling or at
an angle to the screen.
p.16
Equipped with 2.1x short
throw zoom lens
For zoom adjustment, 2.1x short throw zoom lens is provided.
Images can be projected onto an 100" screen (16:9 screen
only) even at a distance of approximately 3 m (10 ft.).
p.10
Advanced image quality adjustment functions
Advanced image quality adjustment functions such as "Auto Iris" and "Sharpness (Advanced)" can be used to
enjoy even sharper images. With the Auto Iris function turned on, the amount of light can be automatically
adjusted to match the images being projected, to create images with depth and perspective. The Sharpness function
is used to adjust not only the entire image, but also to emphasize specific regions, such as hair and clothing.
p.23
A variety of image setting functions
Some of the other many functions that are available are as follows.
EPSON Super White is used to prevent overexposure that can result in images that are too bright.
p.35
A progressive conversion that lets you obtain ideal results both for images with large amounts of movement
and for still images.
p.34
An aspect function that allows images to be viewed in wide-screen format.
p.18
Memory functions that allow adjustment results to be stored and later retrieved easily using the remote control.
p.24
Lock settings that can be used to lock the projector's control panel after adjustments have been made so that
they cannot be changed by mistake, or to prevent children from accidentally turning on the power and looking

Lens shift adjustment
The lens shift dials can be used to position the image and is especially useful when using the projector in the
following locations.
p.16
Suspending from the ceiling
A screen in a high location
Projector situated to the side so that the screen can be viewed sitting right in front of it
Projector situated on a shelf, etc.
When positioning an image using the lens shift dial, hardly any deterioration of the image occurs because the lens
shift correction is adjusted optically. However, for optimal image quality the lens shift function should not be used.
10
Setting up
Projection methods
If you use adhesives on the ceiling mount to prevent the screws from loosening,
or if you use things such as lubricants or oils on the projector, the projector case
may crack causing it to fall from its ceiling mount. This could cause serious injury
to anyone under the ceiling mount and could damage the projector.
When installing or adjusting the ceiling mount, do not use adhesives to prevent
the screws from loosening and do not use oils or lubricants and so on.
Avoid setting the projector up in a place which is very dusty or humid, or where there
will be cigarette or other smoke, especially oily smoke.
Clean the air filter at least once every 3 months.
Clean the air filter more frequently if using the projector in a dusty environment.
Do not use the projector on its side. This may cause malfunctions to occur.
When projecting from directly in front
When projecting from the side of
the screen
Installing the Projector
A special method of installation is required when suspending the projector from
the ceiling (ceiling mount). If it is not installed correctly, it could fall causing an
accident and injury.
Projection methods
When projecting from a celling
* Even if projection will be from the screen
side, set up the screen and projector so that
they are parallel.

Connecting Image Sources
• Turn the power off for both the projector and the signal source before connecting them.
If the power for either device is on at the time of connection, damage may result.
• Check the shapes of the cable connectors and the device ports before making the
connections. If you try to force a connector to fit a device port with a different shape or
number of terminals, a malfunction or damage to the connector or port may result.

• Some signal sources may have specially-shaped ports. In such cases, use the
accessory or optional cables that are supplied with the signal source to make the
connections.
• The cable that should be used to connect video equipment to the projector will depend
on the type of video signal that the equipment outputs. Some kinds of video equipment
output several different types of video signal. The image quality ranking of the video
signal types is generally held to be as follows, in descending order of quality:
Digital component video [HDMI ] > Analog component video [Component] >
S-Video [S-Video] > Composite video [Video]
You should refer to the documentation provided with the video equipment being used to
check what types of video signal formats the equipment can output. The composite
video format is sometimes simply called "video output".
Preparing the Remote Control
Inserting batteries into the remote control
At the time of purchase, the batteries are not
inserted into the remote control. Insert the supplied
batteries before using the remote control.
Insert the batteries in the correct direction.
Check the (+) and (-) indications inside
the battery compartment and insert the
batteries so that they face correctly.
TIP
Close the cover.
If delays in the responsiveness of the remote control occur or if it does not operate
after it has been used for some time, it probably means that the batteries are
becoming flat. If this happen, replace the batteries with two new batteries. Use two
new AA-size alkali batteries or manganese batteries as replacement batteries.
Batteries other than AA-size alkali batteries or manganese batteries cannot be used.

image enlargement ratio
will be smaller near the
middle of the images but
become larger towards the
left and right edges of the
images.
This is useful for when 4:3
images are projected onto a
wide screen. Because there is
almost no distortion due to
enlargement in the middle of
the images, the images
appear close to what they
would be at their original
size. And because both ends
of the images are enlarged,
movement at the edges of the
images appears faster and
gives an impression of
greater speed, making it
ideal for viewing sporting
events.

One is to select one of the gamma correction values
[2.0], [2.1], [2.2], [2.3], [2.4]. The other is
customized adjustment, which is done with
reference to the projected image or a gamma graph.
The gamma graph's horizontal axis represents the
input signal level and its vertical axis the output
signal level.
Adjustment is not possible when "Color Mode" is
set to "x.v. Color".

Observe the gamma graph to check the result of the
adjustment.
When a smaller value is selected, the dark areas of
images become brighter, but the lighter areas may
become oversaturated. This is indicated by bulging
in the upper portion in the gamma graph.
When a larger value is selected, the bright areas of
images become darker. This is indicated by bulging
in the lower portion in the gamma graph.

Maintenance
This section describes maintenance tasks such as cleaning the projector and replacing consumable parts.
Cleaning
You should clean the projector if it becomes dirty or if the quality of projected images starts to
deteriorate.
Be sure to read the separate Safety Instructions/Support and Service Guide for details on safe
handling of the projector during cleaning.
Cleaning the air filter
If the air filter becomes blocked with dust and the message "The projector is overheating. Make sure
nothing is blocking the air vent, and clean or replace the air filter" is displayed, clean the air filter.
• If the air filter becomes clogged with dust, it can result in overheating which may
cause operating problems or reduce the operating life of the optical parts. It is
recommended that you clean the air filter about once every three month. If using the
projector in a dusty location, the air filter should be cleaned more often.
• The air filter is not washable. Also do not use detergent or solvents.
• When using a brush for cleaning, use a soft brush with long bristles and brush the
filter gently. If you brush too strong, dust may be pushed inside the air filter and hardly
be removed.
Remove the air filter cover.
Take out the air filter.

Appendix
Press the knobs to release the catches, and then
pull the cover upward.
Tap the air filter four or five times with the
surface facing downwards to shake off the
dust.
Hold the filter at the other side and tap it again to
shake off the dust.
Do not hit the air filter hard, otherwise it may
become bent or broken and can no longer be used.
47
Maintenance
Use a vacuum cleaner to remove any
remaining dust from the surface of the air
filter.
Install the air filter.
Install with the
groove faced to
the right.
Install the air filter cover.
Cleaning the projector case
Clean the projector case by wiping it gently with a soft
cloth.
If the projector is particularly dirty, moisten the cloth with
water containing a small amount of neutral detergent, and
then firmly wring the cloth dry before using it to wipe the
projector case. Then wipe the case again with a soft, dry
cloth.
Do not use volatile substances such as wax, alcohol or
thinner to clean the projector case. These can cause
the case to warp and make the coating finish peel off.
Cleaning the lens
To clean the lens it is preferable to use an air blower
purchased for the purpose. But alternatively you can wipe it
gently clean with a spectacle-cleaning cloth.
Do not rub the lens with harsh materials or subject the
lens to shocks, as it can easily become damaged.
48
Maintenance
Consumable replacement periods
Air filter replacement period
• If the air filter has been broken or the "Replace" message is displayed even though the
air filter has been cleaned.
Replace with an optional air filter.
Replacing the air filter p.50
Lamp replacement period
• The message "Replace the lamp." appears on the screen when projection starts.
A message will be displayed.
TIP
• The replacement warning message is set to appear after a minimum of about 3900
hours of lamp use in order to maintain the initial brightness and quality of the
projected images. The time taken for the message to appear will vary depending on
usage conditions such as Color Mode settings.
If you continue to use the lamp after this period, the possibility of the lamp breaking
becomes greater. When the lamp replacement message appears, replace the lamp
with a new one as soon as possible, even if it is still working.
• Depending on the characteristics of the lamp and on the way it has been used, the
lamp may become darker or stop working before the lamp warning message appears.
You should always have a spare lamp ready in case it is needed.
• Contact your local dealer or the nearest address provided in the Epson Projector
Contact List.

Glossary
Following is an explanation of some of the terms used in this guide which may be unfamiliar or which
were not explained in the manual itself. Further information can be obtained by referring to other
commercially-available publications.
Aspect
HDTV
The ratio between an image's length and its height.
HDTV images have an aspect of 16:9 and appear
elongated. The aspect for standard images is 4:3.
An abbreviation for High-Definition Television. It refers
to high-definition systems which satisfy the following
conditions.
• Vertical resolution of 720p or 1080i or greater
(p = progressive , i = interlaced )
• Screen aspect of 16:9
• Dolby Digital audio reception and playback (or output)
Component video
Video signals which have the video brightness signals
and color signals separated, in order to provide better
image quality.
In high-definition TV (HDTV), it refers to images which
consist of three independent signals: Y (luminance
signal), and Pb and Pr (color difference signals).
Composite video
A method of image scanning whereby the signal
bandwidth used is approximately half that required for
sequential scanning when images with the same still
picture resolution are broadcast.
Video signals which have the video brightness signals
and color signals mixed together. The type of signals
commonly used by household video equipment
(NTSC , PAL and SECAM formats).
Video signals which consist of a carrier signal Y
(luminance signal) within the color bar signal, and a
chroma or color signal (CbCr).
NTSC
Contrast
The relative brightness of the light and dark areas of an
image can be increased or decreased in order to make text
and graphics stand out more clearly, or to make them
appear softer.
An abbreviation for Phase Alternation by Line, and a
format for ground-based analogue color television
broadcasts. This format is used in Western European
countries except France, and also in Asian countries such
as China and in Africa.
Cool-down
Progressive
This is the process by which the projector's lamp is
cooled down after it has become hot through use. It is
carried out automatically when the [Power] button on
either the remote control or the projector's control panel
has been pressed to turn off the projector. Do not turn off
the main power switch while cool-down is in progress,
otherwise the cool-down process will not work properly.
If the cool-down period is not allowed to finish normally,
the projector's lamp and internal components will remain
at high temperatures, and this may shorten the useful life
of the lamp or cause problems with the operation of the
projector. The projector takes about 16 seconds to cool
down. The actual time will vary depending on the
external air temperature.
A method of image scanning whereby the image data
from a single image is scanned sequentially from top to
bottom to create a single image.
HDMI
An abbreviation for High Definition Multimedia
Interface, and refers to a standard for digital transmission
of high-definition images and multi-channel audio
signals.
HDMI is a standard that is targeted towards household
digital equipment and computers that allows digital
signals to be transmitted in their original high quality
without compression, and it also includes a digital signal
encryption function.
58
Interlace
An abbreviation for National Television Standards
Committee, and a format for ground-based analogue
color television broadcasts. This format is used in Japan,
North America and Central and South America.
PAL
Refresh rate
The light-emitting element of a display maintains the
same luminosity and color for an extremely short time.
Because of this, the image must be scanned many times
per second in order to refresh the light emitting element.
The number of refresh operations per second is called the
"refresh rate", and is expressed in hertz (Hz).
S-Video
A video signal which has the luminance component and
color component separated in order to provide better
image quality.
It refers to images which consist of two independent
signals: Y (luminance signal), and C (color signal).
SDTV
An abbreviation for Standard Definition Television. It
refers to standard television systems which do not satisfy
the conditions for HDTV.
SECAM
An abbreviation for Sequential Couleur A Memoire, and
a format for ground-based analogue color television
broadcasts. This format is used in France, Eastern Europe
and the former Soviet Union, the Middle East and Africa.

be passed through in order to secure the device to a table
or pillar. This projector is compatible with the Microsaver
Security System manufactured by Kensington.
SVGA
A type of image signal with a resolution of 800
(horizontal) x 600 (vertical) dots which is used by IBM
PC/ AT-compatible computers.
SXGA
A type of image signal with a resolution of 1280
(horizontal) x 1024 (vertical) dots which is used by IBM
PC/ AT-compatible computers.
Sync. (Synchronization)
The signals output from computers have a specific
frequency. If the projector frequency does not match this
frequency, the resulting images will not be of a good
quality. The process of matching the phases of these
signals (the relative position of the crests and troughs in
the signal) is called "synchronization". If the signals are
not synchronized, problems such as flickering, blurriness
and horizontal interference can occur.
Tracking
The signals output from computers have a specific
frequency. If the projector frequency does not match this
frequency, the resulting images will not be of a good
quality. The process of matching the frequency of these
signals (the number of crests in the signal) is called
"tracking". If tracking is not carried out correctly, wide
vertical stripes will appear in the projected images.
VGA
XGA
A type of image signal with a resolution of 1,024
(horizontal) x 768 (vertical) dots which is used by IBM
PC/ AT-compatible computers.
YCbCr
Appendix
A type of image signal with a resolution of 640
(horizontal) x 480 (vertical) dots which is used by IBM
PC/ AT-compatible computers.
The carrier signal which is contained in the color bar
signal used in modern TV transmissions. The name
comes from the Y (luminance) signal and the CbCr
(chroma [color]) signals.
YPbPr
The carrier signal which is contained in the color bar
signal used in high-definition TV (HDTV )
transmissions. The name comes from the Y (luminance)
signal and the PbPr (color difference) signals.
