SPECIAL NOTE FOR USERS IN THE U.K.
The mains lead of this product is fitted with a non-rewireable (moulded) plug incorporating a 5A fuse. Should
or
and of the same rating as
the fuse need to be replaced, a BSI or ASTA approved BS 1362 fuse marked
above, which is also indicated on the pin face of the plug, must be used.
Always refit the fuse cover after replacing the fuse. Never use the plug without the fuse cover fitted.
In the unlikely event of the socket outlet in your home not being compatible with the plug supplied, cut off the
mains plug and fit an appropriate type.
DANGER:
The fuse from the cut-off plug should be removed and the cut-off plug destroyed immediately and disposed of
in a safe manner.
Under no circumstances should the cut-off plug be inserted elsewhere into a 5A socket outlet, as a serious
electric shock may occur.
To fit an appropriate plug to the mains lead, follow the instructions below:
IMPORTANT:
The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following code:
Blue: Neutral
Brown: Live
As the colours of the wires in the mains lead of this product may not correspond with the coloured markings
identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed as follows:
• The wire which is coloured blue must be connected to the plug terminal which is marked N or coloured black.
• The wire which is coloured brown must be connected to the plug terminal which is marked L or coloured red.
Ensure that neither the brown nor the blue wire is connected to the earth terminal in your three-pin plug.
Before replacing the plug cover make sure that:
• If the new fitted plug contains a fuse, its value is the same as that removed from the cut-off plug.
• The cord grip is clamped over the sheath of the mains lead, and not simply over the lead wires.
IF YOU HAVE ANY DOUBT, CONSULT A QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN.

IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
Be sure to read the following safeguards when setting up
your projector.
Caution concerning the lamp unit
■ Potential hazard of glass particles if
lamp ruptures. In case of lamp rupture,
contact your nearest Sharp Authorized
Projector Dealer or Service Center for
a replacement.
See “Replacing the Lamp” on page 57.
BQC-PGA20X//1
Caution concerning the setup of 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 must be cleaned more often. As long as the
projector is regularly cleaned, use in these environments will not reduce the overall operation life of the
unit. Internal cleaning should only be performed by a
Sharp Authorized Projector Dealer or Service Center.
Do not set up the projector in places exposed to
direct sunlight or bright light.
■ Position the screen so that it is not in direct sunlight or
room light. Light falling directly on the screen washes
out the colors, making viewing difficult. Close the curtains and dim the lights when setting up the screen in a
sunny or bright room.
The projector may be safely tilted to a maximum
angle of 12 degrees.
■ Placement should be within ±12 degrees of horizontal.
■ Be sure that the intake vent and the exhaust vent are
not obstructed.
■ If the cooling fan becomes obstructed, a protection circuit will automatically put the projector into the standby
mode. This does not indicate a malfunction. Remove
the projector power cord from the wall outlet and wait
at least 10 minutes. Place the projector where the intake
and exhaust vents are not blocked, plug the power cord
back in and turn on the projector. This will return the
projector to the normal operating condition.
Caution regarding transportation of the projector
■ When transporting the projector, be sure not to subject
it to hard impact and/or vibration, as this can result in
damage. Take extra care with the lens. Before moving
the projector, be sure to unplug the power cord from
the wall outlet, and disconnect any other cables connected to it.
Other connected equipment
■ When connecting a computer or other audio-visual
equipment to the projector, make the connections AFTER unplugging the power cord of the projector from
the AC outlet and turning off the equipment to be connected.
■ Please read the operation manuals of the projector and
the equipment to be connected for instructions on how
to make the connections.
Using the projector in other countries
■ The power supply voltage and the shape of the plug
may vary depending on the region or country you are
using the projector in. When using the projector overseas, be sure to use an appropriate power cord for the
country you are in.
Temperature monitor function
Do not subject the projector to hard impact and/
or vibration.
■ Take care with the lens so as not to hit or damage the
surface of the lens.
Rest your eyes occasionally.
■ Continuously watching the screen for long hours will
cause eye strain. Be sure to occasionally rest your eyes.
Avoid locations with extremes of temperature.
■ The operating temperature of the projector is from 41°F
to 95°F (+5°C to +35°C).
■ The storage temperature of the projector is from
–4°F to 140°F (–20°C to +60°C).
Do not block the exhaust and intake vents.
■ Allow at least 7 7/8 inches (20 cm) of space between
the exhaust vent and the nearest wall or obstruction.
■ If the projector starts to overheat
due to setup problems or blockage of the air vents, “
” and
“
” will illuminate in the lower left corner of the
picture. If the temperature continues to rise, the lamp
will turn off, the temperature warning indicator on the
projector will blink, and after a 90-second cooling-off
period the projector will enter the standby mode. Refer
to “Maintenance Indicators” on page 55 for details.
Info
• The cooling fan regulates the internal temperature, and
its performance is automatically controlled. The sound
of the fan may change during projector operation due
to changes in the fan speed. This does not indicate
malfunction.
• Do not unplug the power cord during projection or cooling fan operation. This can cause damage due to rise
in internal temperature, as the cooling fan also stops.

Connections and Setup
• The projector lens should be centered in the middle of the screen. If the horizontal line passing through the
lens center is not perpendicular to the screen, the image will be distorted, making viewing difficult.
• For an optimal image, position the screen so that it is not in direct sunlight or room light. Light falling directly
on the screen washes out the colors, making viewing difficult. Close the curtains and dim the lights when
setting up the screen in a sunny or bright room.
• A polarizing screen cannot be used with this projector.

Regarding the Lamp
Lamp
■ It is recommended that the lamp (sold separately) be replaced when the remaining lamp life becomes 5% or less, or when you notice a significant deterioration in the picture and color quality.
The lamp life (percentage) can be checked with the on-screen display. See page 44.
■ For lamp replacement, please consult your nearest Sharp Authorized Projector Dealer or Service
Center.
IMPORTANT NOTE TO U.S. CUSTOMERS:
The lamp included with this projector is backed by a 90-day parts and labor limited warranty. All service
of this projector under warranty, including lamp replacement, must be obtained through a Sharp Authorized Projector Dealer or Service Center. For the name of the nearest Sharp Authorized Projector Dealer
U.S.A. ONLY
or Service Center, please call toll-free: 1-888-GO-SHARP (1-888-467-4277).
Caution Concerning the Lamp
■ This projector utilizes a pressurized mercury lamp. A loud sound may indicate lamp failure. Lamp
failure can be attributed to numerous sources such as: excessive shock, improper cooling, surface
scratches or deterioration of the lamp due to a lapse of usage time. The period of time up to failure
largely varies depending on the individual lamp and/or the condition and the frequency of use. It is
important to note that failure can often result in the bulb cracking.
■ When the lamp replacement indicator and on-screen display icon are illuminated, it is recommended
that the lamp be replaced with a new one immediately, even if the lamp appears to be operating
normally.
■ Should the lamp break, the glass particles may spread inside the lamp cage or gas contained in the
lamp may be vented into the room from the exhaust vent. Because the gas in this lamp includes
mercury, ventilate the room well if the lamp breaks and avoid all exposure to the released gas. In
case of exposure to the gas, consult a doctor as soon as possible.
■ Should the lamp break, there is also a possibility that glass particles may spread inside of the
projector. In such a case, it is recommended you contact your nearest Sharp Authorized Projector
Dealer or Service Center to remove the damaged lamp and assure safe operation.
Replacing the Lamp
Caution
• Do not remove the lamp unit immediately after operation of the projector. The lamp will be hot and touching
it can lead to burn or injury.
• Wait at least one hour after the power cord is disconnected to allow the surface of the lamp unit to fully cool
before removing the lamp unit.
■ If the new lamp does not light after replacement, take your projector to the nearest Sharp Authorized Projector Dealer or Service Center for repair. Purchase a replacement lamp unit of type BQCPGA20X//1 from your nearest Sharp Authorized Projector Dealer or Service Center. Then carefully
change the lamp by following the instructions described in this section. If you wish, you may have
the lamp replaced at your nearest Sharp Authorized Projector Dealer or Service Center.

aspect ratio of a computer and video image is 4:3.
There are also wide images with an aspect ratio
of 16:9 and 21:9.
Auto Sync
Optimizes projected computer images by automatically adjusting certain characteristics.
Background
Initial setting image projected when no signal is
being output.
Border
Projects a 4:3 image fully within a 16:9 screen by
keeping the aspect ratio at 4:3.
Clock
Clock adjustment is used to adjust vertical noise
when clock level is incorrect.
Phase shift is a timing shift between isomorphic
signals with the same resolution. When phase level
is incorrect, the projected image typically displays
horizontal flicker.
Resize
Allows you to modify or customize the picture display mode to enhance the input image. You can
select four different modes: NORMAL, DOT BY
DOT, BORDER and STRETCH.
sRGB
An international standard of color reproduction
regulated by the IEC (International
Electrotechnical Commission). As the fixed color
area has been decided by the IEC, the color
changes according to LCD features, so that the
images are displayed in a natural tint based on
an original image, when “sRGB” is set to “ON”.
Stretch
Mode that stretches the 4:3 image horizontally to
display it fully on a 16:9 screen.
CLR Temp (Color temperature)
Function that can be used to adjust the color temperature to suit the type of image input to the projector. Decrease the color temperature to create
warmer, reddish images for natural flesh tones,
or increase to create cooler, bluish images for a
brighter picture.
Dot by dot
Mode that projects images in their native resolution.
Gamma
Image quality enhancement function that offers a
richer image by brightening the darker portions of
the image without altering the brightness of the
brighter portions. You can select four different
modes: STANDARD, PRESENTATION, CINEMA
and GAME.
Intelligent compression
High quality resizing of lower and higher resolution images to fit the projector’s native resolution.
Keylock
Mode that can lock the operation of projector buttons to prevent unauthorized adjustment.
Keystone correction
Function to digitally correct a distorted image
when the projector is set up at an angle, smoothens out jaggies on keystone images and compresses the image not only horizontally but vertically keeping the 4:3 aspect ratio.
Password
A password is set so that changes cannot be made
in the “Anti-Theft” setting.
