Major Features
䡵 Evolution of the Best Seller Mobile Projector
The newly developed Iris Lens Cover and Auto Keystone permit speedy setup and projection, and after the presentation is
finished, just switch off the power of the projector and the Instant Shut Down function allows it to soon be moved to another
location.
䡵 DCM “Dual Color Mode”
This next-generation small sized projector contains a “dual color mode” function, the world’s first for a small sized projector.
The use of two color wheels permits optimum color combination to suit the scene, thereby greatly improving color reproduction.
䡵 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.
䡵 High contrast ration of 2000:1
Use of a new generation of DLP™ chip devices has given birth to an amazing 2000:1 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.
䡵 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.
There is also a built-in “Presentation Timer” function for further presentation convenience.
䡵 Great moving image playback capabilities using the same principles as DLP Cinema
technology
DLP type projectors have the same makings as the DLP Cinema technology used in movie theaters. Because of their extremely fast response, even images with much movement – sports, movies – play smoothly without blurring.
䡵 Security lock function
The lock can be set so that a password must be input when the projector is started up. Without the correct password, no
operations other than turning the power on and off can be performed. This function effectively protects the projector from
unauthorized use.
䡵 Low-mode switch function for the lamp output
Using the lamp Low-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.

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.

your dealer.
E-56
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 Low 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 XD80U for a replacement lamp. Indicate you need a VLT-XD80LP replacement lamp for
the XD80U (order code 915P051-10).
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.
• This projector uses a lamp that contains mercury. Disposal of the lamp or the projector with the lamp may be regulated
due to environmental considerations. For disposal or recyling information, please contact your local authorities or the
Electronic Industries Alliance: www.eiae.org. (For US only).
