and a projection lens, its mirrors can reflect
an all-digital image onto a screen or other
surface. The DMD and the sophisticated
electronics that surround it are what we call
Digital Light Processing™ technology.
about DLP™ technology
Thank you for purchasing a Cinego
projector. Cinego uses cutting-edge
technology to bring you the best quality
projection for your home theater.
The thousands of mirrors making up the
Digital Micromirror Device at the heart of
DLP™ technology are spaced less than one
micron apart, resulting in a very high “fill
factor.” By minimizing the gaps between
pixels in a projected image, DLP™ projection
systems create a seamless digital picture
that’s sharp at any size—without the
pixellation or “screen door” effect apparent
in other technologies.
clarity
DLP™ technology comes closer than any
other display solution to reproducing the
exact mirror image of its source material.
That’s why images projected by DLP™
technology are always crystal clear.
color
The DMD chip is probably the world’s most
sophisticated light switch. It contains a
rectangular array of up to 1.3 million hingemounted microscopic mirrors; each of these
micromirrors measures less than one-fifth
the width of a human hair.
DLP™ technology reproduces a range of
colors up to eight times greater than that of
analog projection systems.
In televisions and home theater systems,
DLP™ projection creates rich blacks and
darker shades than is possible with other
technologies.
When a DMD chip is coordinated with a
digital video or graphic signal, a light source,

for a cinematic experience.
Your projector will play the following types

DLP™ technology makes projectors, home

DLP™ technology is in use wherever visual
excellence is in demand. In fact, it’s the
only display solution that enables movie
projectors, televisions, home theater
systems and business projectors to create
an entirely digital connection between a
graphic or video source and the screen in
front of you.
This DVD player is designed and
maunfactured for playback of region “1”
encoded DVD software. This unit can play
only DVD discs labeled “1” or “ALL”.
NOTE
The result is maximum fidelity: a picture
whose clarity, brilliance and color must be
seen to be believed.

Clearly visible on the cover of
most DVDs, you’ll find a picture
of a globe with one or more
numbers on it. This number must
match your DVD player’s regional

connecting your projector
connecting power
Connect your projector to a standard
AC wall outlet via the power cable.
CAUTION: DO NOT place your projector directly on a varnished wood surface. This
projector produces a large amount of heat over time and will discolor wood furniture.
CAUTION: DO NOT move your projector at all while the lamp is hot. Wait until your
projector has cooled before you change its position or adjust its height.
Place your projector on a surface with adequate ventilation. Do not put it on thick carpeting,
which can restrict air flow, or near a heat source such as a heater vent or radiator, which can
cause it to overheat.
Position your projector on a flat surface at a right angle to the screen. The projector must be
at least 39 inches from the projection screen.
Your desired picture size will determine how far away from the screen you should position
your projector. The farther back you place the projector, the larger your picture will be (see
page 27).

adjusting the shape of your picture
To adjust keystone and aspect ratio, access the Display menu as described below.
keystone
Keystone is a term we use to describe what happens when a projector is not aligned
properly with the screen, or when the projection screen has an angled surface. The
image shape resembles a trapezoid rather than a square.
aspect ratio
Aspect ratio is the ratio of the projected picture’s width to its height. For example,
the ratio of this rectangle is w:h.
Widescreen pictures have an aspect ratio of 16:9 (or sixteen by nine). Full screen
pictures have an aspect ratio of 4:3 (or four by three). DVD movies should be marked
either wide screen or full screen. We suggest that you set your aspect ratio to 16:9
for wide screen movies and 4:3 for full screen movies.

I have just connected my TV or VCR. Why isn’t my picture quality as good
as when I play a DVD?

Most TVs and VCRs produce analog pictures. Your projector is designed to give you crystal
clear graphics when you use it in conjunction with a device that produces a digital picture.
Try using the built-in DVD player or a satellite or HDTV system. Also consider purchasing the
HDTV tuner that was specially designed for use with your projector.
I have just connected my gaming console, digital video camera, PC, tuner,
HDTV, or satellite TV system. Why won’t my projector work now?

I was just using my projector and noticed it gets hot!
Your projector produces a lot of heat over time. Allow the projector to cool down for three
minutes after using it before you touch it or try to put it away. Do not attempt to change the
lamp until you have allowed the projector to cool for about one hour.

Why is the picture fuzzy?
Why does my projector keep making noise after I turn it off?
First, make sure the projector is at least 39 inches away from the screen. Then, try focusing it.
Why can’t I see the picture very well? It looks washed out and it’s barely
visible.
If there is too much ambient light in the room, the picture may become difficult to see. For
example, if you are trying to operate the projector during the day or in a well lit room, the
light can interfere with the projected image. Try turning off the lights, closing the drapes, or
moving to a darker room.
How do I know when to change the lamp?
Access the About menu and look at the lamp life counter. When the lamp life counter nears
2000 hours, we suggest you replace the lamp. After you have done so, access the Advanced
menu and reset the lamp life counter.
Why does the message, “Lamp life time up/Replacement suggested”
keep flashing every five minutes?
This message automatically pops up when you have reached 2000 lamp hours. Replace the
lamp and then access the Management menu to reset the lamp life counter.

The projector must complete its power down sequence. Included in the power down
sequence is an auto cooling cycle to preserve the lamp. Do not unplug your projector during
this cycle. By doing so, you will shorten the lamp life.
Why is the picture wider on the top than on the bottom?
Keystone is a term we use to describe what happens when a projector is not aligned
properly with the screen, or when the projection screen has an angled surface. The image
that results is a trapezoid rather than a square. Try adjusting the height adjuster to correct
the image or go to page 29 to learn how to adjust the keystone itself.
Why is the picture stretched out or scrunched up?
Check your DVD to find out if it is wide screen or full screen. For wide screen, set your
aspect ratio to 16:9. For full screen, 4:3. See pages 28 and 29 for more information.
I have my projector set to Economy Mode. Why is it telling me to replace
the lamp after only 2000 hours? Isn’t it supposed to last for 3000 hours in
Economy Mode?
When your projector is set to Economy Mode, it calculates only fractions of hours. For
example, three hours in Economy Mode will be calculated as only two hours.
