IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
Important Safeguards
These safety instructions are to ensure the long life of the unit and to prevent fire and shock. Please read them
carefully and heed all warnings.
Installation
•
•
•
•
•
•
For best results, use the unit in a darkened room.
Place the unit on a flat, level surface in a dry area away from dust and moisture.
Do not place the unit in direct sunlight, near heaters or heat radiating appliances.
Exposure to direct sunlight, smoke or steam can harm internal components.
Handle the unit carefully. Dropping or jarring can damage internal components.
Do not place heavy objects on top of the unit.
Power Supply
• The unit is designed to operate on a power supply of 100 - 240 V 50/60 Hz AC. Ensure that your power supply
fits these requirements before attempting to use the unit.
• Handle the power cable carefully and avoid excessive bending. A damaged cord can cause electric shock or
fire.
• Disconnect the power cable (mains lead) from the power outlet after using the unit.
Before disconnecting the power cable, make sure that the STANDBY indicator lights in amber (not blinking or
in green).
Cleaning
• Disconnect the power cable (mains lead) from the unit.
• Clean the cabinet of the unit periodically with a damp cloth. If heavily soiled, use a mild detergent. Never use
strong detergents or solvents such as alcohol or thinner.
• Use a blower or lens paper to clean the lens, and be careful not to scratch or mar the lens.
• Clean the ventilation slots and speaker grills on the unit periodically using a vacuum cleaner. If accumulated
dust blocks the ventilation slots, the unit will overheat, which may cause the unit to malfunction.
Use a soft brush attachment when using the vacuum cleaner. Do not use a hard attachment, such as a crevice
tool, to prevent the damage to the unit.
Lamp Replacement
• Be sure to replace the lamp when the Status indicator comes on. If you continue to use the lamp after 1500
hours of usage, the lamp will turn off.
Fire and Shock Precautions
• Ensure that there is sufficient ventilation and that vents are unobstructed to prevent the buildup of heat inside
the unit. Allow at least 10 cm (3 inches) of space between the unit and walls.
• Prevent foreign objects such as paper clips and bits of paper from falling into the unit. Do not attempt to retrieve
any objects that fell into the unit. Do not insert any metal objects such as a wire or screwdriver into the unit. If
something should fall into the unit, immediately disconnect the power cable from the unit and have the object
removed by a qualified PLUS service person.
• Do not place any liquids on top of the unit.
Carrying around
When carrying the unit around, please use the carrying case that comes with it and, to protect the lens from
scratches, always shut the sliding lens cap. Also, do not subject the unit to strong mechanical shock.
CAUTION – HOT!
The area around the exhaust vents is hot during and immediately after image projection.
To avoid burns, keep your hands away from this area.
Wait until the exhaust vents area cools off before touching it.
Do not look into the lens while the unit is on. Serious damage to your eyes could result.

Major Features
Lightweight (at about 1.5 kg/3.3 lb) high-intensity mobile projector
The synergy of the DLP™ (Digital Light Processing) display system and our own optical design serve to improve the optical
utilization efficiency. The three primary colors (RGB) required in color expression are reproduced with one DMD (Digital
Micromirror Device of high precision). These factors have enabled a design that offers both high intensity and small size/
lightweight features.
Sharp, clear picture
The DLP™ display system affords RGB color fidelity and inconspicuous gaps between the individual dots, thereby permitting
the display of small characters and diagrams with distinct clarity.
Built-in viewer allows presentations to be made with the stand alone projector
Applicable Projector: U4-136
The built-in viewer permits presentations to be made without a personal computer using presentation materials (created with
a personal computer) that have been recorded to a compact flash card, or memory card playback* of pictures taken with a
digital camera, etc.
(*Some memory cards cannot be played back.)
Powerful functions for presentations
A wide variety of easy-to-set functions have been built into the projector, from a digital keystone correction function (used
when making settings) that corrects picture distortion, to an auto adjustment function that automatically identifies the PC
signal.
A presentation timer that supports presentations and a startup logo creation function that permits unhindered logo creation
have also been added.
High contrast ration of 1500:1
Use of a new generation of DMD devices has given birth to an amazing 1500:1 high contrast ratio.
By widening the difference of brightness between black and white, you can see a degree of sharpness that is greater than just
the brightness based on specifications.
Beautiful reproduction of high-quality images from DVD
Faithful reproduction of color tones gives rise to the display of natural images. High-quality images such as those from DVD
and digital high-definition television broadcasts bring out the display capabilities that are an essential strength of the DLP™
display system projector.
Digital/analog RGB input
by using a DVI cable to connect the projector with a personal computer equipped with a DVI connector. This will allow fully
digital pictures to be enjoyed.
Econo-mode switch function for the lamp output
Using the lamp Econo-mode will extend the life of the lamp and lower the power consumption.
By switching the lamp mode to suit your operating environment, you will save on lamp cost as well as contribute to energy
conservation and ecology.

Note:
* This function is for the logo. Full-color photographs with many colors that fill the
projection screen cannot be captured. Please make such photographs into a small
size.
* Capture ranges that exceed the output resolution of the projector cannot be selected.
* The area outside the red lines of the red frame becomes the selection range for
the capture range selection.
* To match the background color of the startup logo with the background color of
the created image, examine the values (i.e., 0 to 255) of the RGB colors of the
created image using image software and set the various values to the custom
RGB of the logo background color.
* Pressing the STANDBY button during the capture will not switch off the power.
This is to prevent the loss of the capture data during the capture (by switching off
the power). To switch off the power, please press the STANDBY button after the
capture is completed.
* When a mistake has occurred with the capture, the logo that was previously
captured will also be deleted.

Cleaning
• Be certain to disconnect the power plug from the power outlet before cleaning.
• Do not spray or otherwise expose the projector, lens, or screen to volatile substances such as insecticides. Do not leave rubber
or vinyl products in contact with the projector for long periods. Doing so could cause them to undergo qualitative changes or the
coatings may peel, etc.
Cleaning a Soiled Projector Main Unit
• Wipe with a lint-free, soft, dry cloth.
When very dirty, wipe with a cloth that has been moistened with a diluted neutral detergent, then finish with a dry cloth. If a
chemically-treated cloth is going to be used, please follow any written warnings.
• Do not wipe with thinner, benzene, or other solvents. Doing so could cause them to undergo qualitative changes or the coatings
may peel, etc.
• When removing the dust of the outflow and intake holes, use the brush attachment on a vacuum cleaner to clean out the dust.
Avoid using the vacuum directly without attaching the adapter as well as the use of a nozzle adapter.
• Do not scratch or otherwise hit the projector body with your nails or other hard object, since this will cause scratches.
Dirty Lens
• Clean using the same method you would use to clean a camera lens: Use a commercial blower for camera use or cleaning
paper for eye glasses. Be careful not to scratch the lens at this time.
Dust of the Intake and Outflow Holes
Dust that collects in the intake and outflow holes will obstruct the ventilation and cause the internal temperature to rise which
could cause damage. Clean this area carefully. As a guideline, clean at least every 100 hours of usage.
S
U
AT
ST
• Switch off the power, check that the
STANDBY indicator has changed to
a steadily lit amber, then unplug the
power cable.
• Clean out the holes from the outside
using a vacuum cleaner. Use the
brush adapter of the vacuum cleaner
to do this. Avoid using the vacuum
directly without attaching the adapter
as well as the use of a nozzle adapter.

Cleaning the Inside of the Projector
Cleaning of the inside of the projector is required about once a year. Failure to clean over a long period while dust has collected
inside the projector could cause a fire or breakdown. Do not clean the inside of the projector by yourself. Please be sure to contact
your dealer.
E-72
Replacing the Lamp Cartridge
• The lamp that is used as a light source in the projector has a limited service life. The rated service life of the lamp is
about 1500 hours (when used in normal mode only). This could be shortened depending on conditions of use and
other factors.
Note that lamp life will be extended when the projector is often used in Eco mode. (The rated service life of the lamp
means the average value of lamp life for lamps that have been manufactured over a long period, and it is derived from
test conditions at this company.)
• When the life of the lamp is exceeded, the STATUS indicator lights a steady red and the message [Replace the Lamp
Cartridge] is displayed on the screen. When this occurs, it is time to replace the lamp cartridge. Please make the
replacement following the procedure below.
• If the projector is used another 100 hours after the lamp’s service life is reached, the power is set to the standby mode
and no longer turns on.
• Contact a store that sells the U4-136/U4-131/U4-112/U4-111 for a replacement lamp. Indicate you need a U4-150 replacement lamp for the U4-136/U4-131/U4-112/U4-111 (order code 28-061).
CAUTION
• Replacement of the lamp cartridge is performed after switching off the power, waiting for the cooling fan to stop,
disconnecting the power plug from the power outlet, and then leaving the projector for about 60 minutes before
replacement is started. Replacement of the lamp cartridge during operation or immediately after operation stops will
cause burns because of the high temperature.
• Do not remove any screws other than those specified.
• Do not touch the lamp with bare hands. Doing so could shorten the life of the lamp.
• If lamp has reached the end of its usable life, the lamp bulb may shatter. When this happens, an explosive sound can
be heard and pieces of glass may be scattered in the lamp cartridge. Do not touch them as the pieces of glass may
cause injury. If this happens, contact your dealer or the store the projector was purchased.
E-73
Replacing the Lamp Cartridge
Preparations: Turning the projector upside-down on top of a soft cloth, etc., so that it does not get scratched makes it easier to
replace the lamp cartridge. Turn the projector right-side up after replacing the lamp cartridge.
1 Unplug the power cord.
2 Turn the projector upside-down.
3 Remove the lamp cover.
(1) Turn the lamp cover’s set screw counterclockwise and
loosen until the screw turns freely. (The screw does
not come off.)
(2) Open the lamp cover a little, then pull it in the direction of the arrow and remove it.
4 Remove the lamp cartridge.
(1) Turn the lamp cartridge’s two set screws counterclockwise and loosen them until the screws turn freely.
(The screws do not come off.)
(2) Grasp the lamp cartridge’s handle and pull upward
to remove the lamp cartridge.
E-74
Replacing the Lamp Cartridge
5 Mount the new lamp cartridge.
(1) Place the lamp cartridge with its socket facing to the
right and push it in slowly.
(Line it up with the screw holes in the projector.)
(2) Turn the two lamp cartridge screws clockwise to
tighten them.
6 Mount the lamp cover.
(1) Set the tip of the lamp cover in place, then close the
lamp cover.
(2) Turn the lamp cover’s screw clockwise to tighten it.
7 Reset the Lamp Timer.
Connect the power cable, switch on the power, and then reset.
Select [Info.] → [Lamp Timer Reset] on the menu and press the ENTER button. There is a change to the initialization
verification display. Press the ENTER button again. See “Lamp Timer Reset” on Page E-58.
Note:
After reaching the lamp service life, if the lamp is used for more than another 100 hours, it will not be possible to switch on the power. Should
this happen, while the projector is in the standby mode, simultaneously holding down the projector’s SOURCE button and AUTO button for
more than 5 seconds will clear the lamp timer. Checking that the STATUS indicator is out will show that the lamp timer has been cleared.
Contact a store that sells the U4-136/U4-131/U4-112/U4-111 for a replacement lamp. Indicate you need a U4-150 replacement lamp for the
U4-136/U4-131/U4-112/U4-111 (order code 28-061).
