How to set up the projector and screen
Max. 10˚
Caution: When setting up the projector
• For minimal servicing and to maintain high image quality, SHARP recommends that this projector be installed in an area
free from humidity, dust and cigarette smoke. When the projector is subjected to these environments, the lens and filter
must be cleaned more often. Periodically the filter should be replaced and the projector should be cleaned internally. As
long as the projector is properly maintained in this manner, use in these environments will not reduce the overall operation
life. Please note that all internal cleaning must be performed by an Authorized Sharp Industrial LCD Products Dealer or
Service Center.
• Do not expose to extreme heat or cold.
Operating temperature: 41°F to 104°F (5°C to 40°C)
Storage temperature: -4°F to 132°F (-20°C to 60°C)
• Do not tilt the projector more than 10°.
• Position the screen so that it is not in direct sunlight or room light. Light falling directly onto the screen washes
out colors, making viewing difficult. Close the curtains and dim the lights when using the screen in a bright or
sunny room.
• The best picture will be obtained when the projector is at a 90 degree angle to the screen. Position the
projector and screen as shown.

Note the following when using the S-VIDEO INPUT terminal:
• The S-VIDEO INPUT terminal uses a video signal system in
which the picture is separated into a color and a luminance
signal to realize a higher-quality picture.
• The S-VIDEO INPUT terminal has priority over the VIDEO
INPUT terminal. Make the audio connection via the VIDEO
INPUT audio terminals (left/right).
• The S-VIDEO INPUT terminal is used when the AV
equipment to be connected has an S-VIDEO output
terminal.
• S-VIDEO cannot be output from the VIDEO OUTPUT
terminal. If a connection is made to both the S-VIDEO
INPUT terminal and the VIDEO INPUT terminal, the signal
input from the VIDEO INPUT terminal will be output from
the VIDEO OUTPUT terminal and the projector will display
the S-VIDEO image because the S-VIDEO INPUT terminal
has priority.
Note:
• By using the external amplifier, the volume can be
amplified for greater sound.

Our projector uses an LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) panel.
This very sophisticated panel contains 480,000 pixels. (RGB
Trio) TFTs (Thin Film Transistors). As with any high technology
electronic equipment such as large screen TVs, video
systems and/or video cameras, there are certain acceptable
tolerances that the equipment must conform to.
Sharp’s acceptable tolerances permit a total of 35 inactive
TFTs, which may result in illuminated or inactive dots on the
picture screen.
This will not affect the picture quality or the life expectancy of
the unit. If you have any questions about this matter, please
call toll free 1-800-BE-SHARP (1-800-237-4277). U.S.A. ONLY
