Safety Precautions
z This projector projects intense light from the projection lens. Do not stare directly into
the lens if possible, as doing so may result in eye damage. Be especially careful that
children do not stare directly into the beam.
z Install the projector in an appropriate position. Installing the projector in an
unappropriate position may result in a fire hazard.
z Allow for appropriate space above beside and behind of the projector cabinet for
allowing air circulation and cooling of the projector. Minimum clearances must be
maintained. If the projector is to be built into a compartment or similarly space, the
minimum distances must be maintained. Do not cover the ventilation slot on the
projector. Heat build-up can reduce the service life of your projector, and can also be
dangerous.

Lamp Handling Precautions
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
This projector uses a high-pressure mercury lamp which must be handled carefully and
correctly as mentioned below.
z A lamp may explode with a loud sound or burn out due to a shock, scratch, or use
beyond its expiry date.
z The lamp life may differ from lamp to lamp and according to the usage environment.
There is no guarantee that all lamps will last for the same period of time. Some lamps
may fail in a shorter period of time than other similar lamps.
z A lamp gradually becomes darker over time.
z If the projector indicates that the lamp should be replaced (i.e., the LAMP REPLACE
indicator lights up twice), the chances of an explosion increase. Replace the lamp with
a new one immediately if such is the case.
z Always keep your face away from the exhaust vent so that you are not injured from the
gas and broken lamp shards.
If a Lamp Explodes
If a lamp explodes, gas and broken shards may scatter inside the projector and
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 contact your eyes or mouth, consult a 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 projectors mercury lamp according to local regulations just like
the fluorescent lamps.
Carrying/Transporting the Projector
z This projector is a precision machine. Do not subject the projector to strong shocks or
vibrations or turn it down.
z Install the lens cap to protect the lens and put the projector in the carrying bag to protect it from dust and scratches on the surface of it when you carry the projector.
z Do not put the projector in the carrying bag until the cooling fan stops rotating. The projector may be damaged due to the heat.
z The carrying bag is not designed to protect the projector from external shocks. When
carrying the projector with it put in the carrying bag, do not give a shock to it, drop it, or
place anything on it. The projector may be damaged or malfunctioned.
z Do not transport the projector through a courier or transport service with the carrying
bag. Put the projector in an impact-resistant transport case if such is the case.

above and below the horizontal.
z Do not point the projector up or down.
z Do not install the projector vertically.
20°
20°
z The projector may be damaged if it is tilted more than 20 degrees above or below.
Hot Air from Exhaust Vent
z Hot air is exhausted from the exhaust vent. Do
not place any object near the exhaust vent.
- Do not put any spray cans near the vent.
The internal pressure increases due to heat,
such may result in an explosion.
- Do not put any metallic object on the proHot air
jector. It may become hot, resulting in an
accident or injury.
- Do not put anything such as a plant pot
near the exhaust vent.
- Do not put anything near the exhaust vent that may deform or deteriorate due to
heat.
- Do not seat anyone near the exhaust vent.
z The area around the exhaust vent and the cabinet above the exhaust vent become hot.
Do not touch these areas, or you may get burnt. In particular, keep children away from
these areas.
z Do not put anything that may deform or discolor due to heat on the projector.
Do Not Use in the Following Environments
z Do not install the projector in a humid or dusty location or a position where there is a lot
of oily or cigarette smoke. Optical parts such as a lens and mirror may be stained,
resulting in poor picture quality.
z Do not use the projector in a place subject to either very high or very low temperatures.
- Operating temperature: +5°C to +35°C
- Storage temperature: -10°C to +60°C
Condensation
z If the projector is carried from a cold place to a warm place or the room temperature is
raised rapidly, condensation may form on the lens and mirror due to the moisture in the
atmosphere, resulting in a blurred picture. Wait until condensation evaporates and normal picture is shown.
13
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Ensure that the projector is installed with a minimum distance of 1 m (3.3') from its left,
right, rear, and top panels to the neighboring object such as a wall.

image is out of focus or the screen becomes dark, respectively.
z The sizes in the above table have been obtained assuming that the aspect ratio is 4:3.

adjustable foot. (P38)
z Make sure that the installation position is
free from any obstacle that may block the
exhaust vent (fan) on the right side of the
projector and the air intake vent on the bottom of the projector.
z The screen must not be exposed to direct
sunlight or light from lighting equipment. In a
bright room, it is recommended to limit
ambient lighting in order to improve the
image quality.
Ceiling Mounting or Rear Projection
You can mount the projector on the ceiling (Ceiling mounted) with it turned up side
down or place it behind the screen (Rear) if you use a translucent screen.
If you mount the projector on the ceiling, you have to invert the projected image (P85).
