Setting up your projector
Setting up the screen
Install the screen perpendicularly to the projector. If the screen can not be installed in such a way, adjust the
projection angle of the projector. (See below.)
• Install the screen and projector so that the projector’s lens is placed at the same height and horizontal position of
the screen center.
• Do not install the screen where it is exposed to direct sunlight or lighting. Light directly reflecting on the screen
makes the projected images washed-out and hard to view.
SCREEN SIZE
You can keep the image display area within the screen by setting SCREEN SIZE in the INSTALLATION menu
according to the size of the actual screen.
When setting SCREEN SIZE to CINEMA SCOPE(2.35:1):
• CinemaScope size movies are projected in the full screen.
• Set ASPECT in the FEATURE menu to 16:9 when displaying Vista-size images. In this case, they are squeezed horizontally.
• When ASPECT in the FEATURE menu is set to AUTO and 480p, 720p, or 1080i signal is input, the part for
displaying subtitles is not projected.
Basic setup
Determine the distance from the screen to the projector according to the size of the images to be projected. (See
page 12.)
VERTICAL LOCATION

Empty area
Set SCREEN SIZE in the
INSTALLATION menu to 720p(16:9)
Set VERTICAL LOCATION in the
INSTALLATION menu to +6.
• When you increase the value of VERTICAL LOCATION too much,
the displayed image may be out of the screen partially.
• Do not place this projector on a carpet or blanket because the exhaust vent and the intake vent on the bottom
surface are blocked and the projector would heat, causing a breakdown or fire.
• Depending on the installation conditions, warm air that is emitted from the exhaust vents may flow into the intake
vent, causing the projector to display “TEMPERATURE!!” and then stop projecting images.
Adjusting the projection angle
This projector is provided with three feet for
adjusting the projection angle on the bottom
surface. Adjust the projection angle depending on
the position of the projector.
Adjustment of the projection angle
For the best projection, project images on a
flat screen installed at 90 degrees to the floor.
If necessary, tilt the projector using the two
adjustment feet on the bottom of the projector.
1. Tilt up the projector to the appropriate angle.
2. Press the foot adjustment buttons next to the
Screen
Adjustment feet
(rear)
adjustment feet (rear), and the adjustment feet
will come out.
3. Release the buttons to lock the adjustment feet
(rear) to that position.
4. Rotate the adjustment feet (rear) for fine
adjustment.
After using the projector:
5. Put the adjustment feet (rear) back into the
projector by pressing the foot adjustment
buttons.
• If necessary, rotate the adjustment feet (front) for
fine adjustment.
EN-10
When projected images are distorted to a
trapezoid:
When the screen and the projector are not placed
perpendicularly to each other, projected images
become trapezoidal. If you cannot make the
projector and the screen perpendicular to each
other by mechanical adjustments, adjust keystone.
(See page 18.)
• When the keystone adjustment is applied, the
correct aspect ratio may not be obtained.
• When the keystone adjustment is applied, the
resolution lowers. In addition, vertical stripes appear and straight lines bend in images with complicated patterns. To prevent such symptoms,
keep the screen and the projector perpendicular
to each other as much as possible.
• Though the projected image may be distorted
momentarily when you change the setting value
of the keystone adjustment, such symptom is not
a malfunction.
• Though the projected image may be distorted
depending on the setting value of the keystone
adjustment and the type of the input signal, such
symptom is not a malfunction. In such a case,
adjust the setting value within the range where
the projected image is not distorted.
• The setting value displayed at the time of the
keystone adjustment may vary depending on the
type of the input signal.
• The keystone mode does not function when the
REAL mode is applied.
• Displayed image may be distorted during keystone adjustment.
TRIGGER terminal
For ceiling mounting,
you need the ceiling
mount kit designed
for this projector. Ask
a specialist for installation. For details, consult your dealer.
• The warranty on
this projector does
not cover any damage caused by use of any nonrecommended ceiling mount kit or installation of the
ceiling mount kit in an improper location.
• When using the projector mounted on the ceiling,
set IMAGE REVERSE in the INSTALLATION menu to
MIRROR INVERT. See page 25.
• When the projector is mounted on the ceiling, images may appear darker than those projected in
the case of tabletop mounting. This isn't a product
malfunction.
• Ask your installation specialist to provide an A/C
power switch. When you do not use the projector,
be sure to shut down the main power by the switch.
• Do not install the projector where the exhaust vents
are exposed to air emitted by an air conditioning.
Such installation may cause a breakdown.
• Do not install the projector near a fire alarm
because it emits hot air from its exhaust vents.
The TRIGGER terminal on the rear of the projector
is a terminal that outputs a 12 V signal to control an
externally connected device (electric screen) when
images are projected.
Rear projection
Ask a specialist for installation. For details,
consult your dealer.
• For rear projection, set IMAGE
REVERSE in the
INSTALLATION menu to MIRROR. See page 25.
Caution:
• Placing the projector directly on a carpet impairs
ventilation by the fans, causing damage or
failure. Put a hard board under the projector to
facilitate ventilation.
• Place the projector at least 50 cm (or 20 inch)
away from the wall to prevent the air inlet grille
and the air outlet grilles that emit hot air from
being blocked.
• Do not use the projector in the following
locations and manners, which may cause fire or
electric shock.
• In a dusty or humid place.
• In a sideways or upside-down position.
• Near a heater.
• In an oily, smoky, or damp place such as a
kitchen.
• In direct sunlight.

Replacing the lamp
This projector is equipped with a lamp to project images. This lamp is a consumable. It may burn out or its brightness
may decrease during use. In such cases, replace the lamp with a new one as soon as possible. Be sure to replace the
lamp with a new lamp sold separately that is exclusive to this projector. Contact your dealer for purchase of the lamp.
WARNING:
• Be careful not to drop the lamp fixing screws inside of the projector. Don’t put a metal piece or flammable object
into the projector. Using the projector with any foreign object present inside may result in electric shock or fire.
When you can’t remove the foreign object from the inside, contact your dealer for removal.
• Be sure to install the lamp securely. When the lamp isn’t installed properly, it won’t illuminate. Improper installation
may also result in fire.
• Don’t shake the removed lamp or don’t lift it above your face. Your eyes may be injured by flying or falling glass
fragments.
• Don’t replace the lamp immediately after use because the lamp cover will be very hot. You may get burned. Turn
off the power using the POWER button. After the lamp goes out, wait about two minutes until the intake and
exhaust fans for cooling the lamp stop rotating. Then unplug the power cord, and wait at least one hour to allow
the lamp to cool down enough to the touch.
• Do not touch the lamp directly. It may break and cause injury or burn.
Interval of lamp replacement
The recommended interval of lamp replacement is about 4000 hours*1 *2 of consecutive use. Such interval differs
depending on the operating environment and may be shorter than 4000 hours*1 *2. Decrease in luminescence and/or
color brightness indicates that the lamp needs to be replaced. When the lamp operation time exceeds 3000 hours*1,
the indicator will blink alternately between green and red (while the lamp is lit; when the lamp is not lit, the indicator
will be lit red only) and the lamp replacement message will appear on the screen for one minute everytime the lamp is
turned on. When the lamp has been used for about 3800 hours*1, the replacement message (LAMP EXCHANGE) will
appear on the screen for one minute every 20 hours*1 thereafter.
When the lamp operation time exceeds 4000 hours*1 *2, the projector automatically shuts off and can’t be used
until the lamp is replaced and the lamp operation time is reset.
*1 Duration when LAMP MODE of the INSTALLATION menu is set to LOW. When it is set to STANDARD, this duration
will be shorted.
*2 Duration when LAMP MODE is set to STANDARD, this duration will be shorted to 2000 hours.
Caution:
• Don’t remove the lamp for any purpose other than replacement. Unnecessary removal of the lamp may result in a
breakdown.
• This projector uses a high-pressure mercury lamp as the light source. The high-pressure mercury lamp may
explode or fail to illuminate permanently because of an impact, scratch, or deterioration through use. The period
of time until explosion or permanent failure to illuminate varies considerably from lamp to lamp, depending on
operation conditions. Therefore, the lamp may explode soon after the start of use.
• The possibility of explosion of the lamp increases if you use it beyond its replacement period. When the instruction
of lamp replacement appears, replace it with a new one immediately even if the lamp is still lighting normally.
• When the high-pressure mercury lamp explodes, glass fragments will scatter inside or outside the lamp box and
the gas charged inside the lamp will diffuse inside or outside the projector. The gas inside the lamp contains
mercury. Be careful not to breathe it or avoid it from entering your eye or mouth. If you should breathe it or if it
should enter your eye or mouth, see a doctor immediately.
• In the event that the high-pressure mercury lamp exploded, glass fragments may have been scattered inside the
projector. Ask your dealer to replace the lamp and to inspect the inside of the projector. When you clean or replace
the lamp by yourself, be sure to hold the handle of the lamp. You may get injured by glass fragments.
• Don’t replace the lamp while the projector is installed on the ceiling. Glass fragments may fall from the projector,
entering your eye or mouth causing injury.
• When placing the projector upside down to replace the lamp or conduct maintenance, ensure that the projector is
securely placed before working with it.
