2.1.3. Auto-lamp changing function (for Changer )
Changer is equipped with the auto-lamp changing function that can detect a lamp failure or a
brightness deterioration to swap it for a spare lamp automatically.
The lamp is managed as three types of status, “NEW”, “USED” and “JUNK”. It is displayed on
screen by [DISPLAY] button.
•
NEW:
New or not-deteriorated lamp
•
USED: Deteriorated lamp below the threshold set in CHANGE MODE menu (chapter
1.5.1.18.2, on page 43)
•
JUNK: Failed lamp
5 minutes after the auto-lamp changing, the lamp can be automatically adjusted to the suitable
position to maximize the brightness (chapter 2.1.3.4, on page 79), and the initial brightness is
automatically read. If you turn off the power during the auto-lamp changing, the initial value will
be read in the same way when you will turn on again.
2.1.3.1. Action in lamp failure (burnout or explosion)
When a lamp failure is detected, the lamp is automatically swapped for a spare lamp.
1. When it detects a lamp failure, the lamp status is automatically recognized as “JUNK” and
memorized in the lamp memory.
2. If the spare lamp status is “NEW” or “USED”, the auto-lamp changing starts. “☀” mark starts
blinking on the screen to induce to replace the spare lamp (chapter 2.1.3.5, on page 80).
3. If the spare lamp status is “JUNK”, the product tries to ignite the current lamp once without
auto-lamp changing. If it succeeds to ignite, it continues to work. Otherwise, the error
indicator shows “1.” (chapter 3.5, on page 91).
Even if the status is “JUNK”, in the case that you have cycled the power during this status,
the auto-lamp changing starts. If it succeeds to ignite, it continues to work. Otherwise, the
error indicator shows “1.”.
2.1.3.2. Action in brightness deterioration
When the luminous sensor detects a brightness deterioration, the lamp is automatically swapped
for a spare lamp.
1. When the luminous sensor detects brightness deterioration, the lamp status is automatically
recognized as “USED” and memorized in the lamp memory.
2. If the spare lamp status is “NEW”, the pre-announcement of auto-lamp changing is displayed
on screen and the auto-lamp changing starts 5 minutes later. “☀” mark starts blinking on the
screen to induce to replace the spare lamp (chapter 2.1.3.5, on page 80).
3. If the spare lamp status is “USED” or “JUNK”, the current lamp is not swapped to keep
lighting.
In CHANGE MODE menu (chapter 1.5.1.18.2, on page 43), you can set the brightness to start
the auto-lamp changing. There are three types of condition, 50% of initial brightness (NORMAL),
30% of initial brightness (LONG) or no swap due to brightness deterioration (OFF). The initial
setting is NORMAL.
PH50, XL50, XL21 series Set-up and Installation Manual
78
2.1.3.3. Manual lamp swap
In Changer , regardless of lamp failure or brightness deterioration, you can swap lamps by
manual. During the swap, the lamp cover must be closed.
At lamp lighting, it automatically turns off the current lamp and swaps it with the spare lamp to
light. At stand-by state, it automatically turns on the power and swaps the current lamp with the
spare. Then the product shuts down to go back to the stand-by state.
[Procedure]
Press [INPUT B], [ESC] and [2-digit remote ID number] buttons in the remote control
consecutively. When the ID is 01, press [INPUT B], [ESC], [0] and [1]. Pressing [INPUT B], [ESC],
[0] and [0] swaps lamps regardless of remote ID setting.
You can also swap by pressing-and-hold the standby switch on the control panel in PH50 and
XL50 or by pressing manual swap button on the lamp changer in XL21 .

2.1.3.4. Lamp position auto calibration
Changer has a function that can automatically adjust a lamp to the suitable position to maximize
the brightness, which is performed 5 minutes after the lamp swap.
Once calibrated, the result is automatically saved in the optical unit and it will not be re-calibrated
until the next swap is detected.
For instance, it calibrates 5 minutes after lighting a lamp that is different from a previous one, or 5
minutes after the auto-lamp changing. If you turn on the power to ignite the same lamp, the auto
calibration will not be performed since the lamp position is automatically set according to the
memorized result.
REV 2.4
79
2.1.3.5. Warning indication
Changer can indicate a warning mark to induce to replace the spare lamp and a
pre-announcement of auto-lamp changing on screen. It can be set in WARNING menu in
INDICATION in the system menu (chapter 1.5.1.11, on page 40). Or you can also select no
indication setting.
[Warning mark to induce to replace the spare lamp]
“☀” mark is displayed on screen when a spare lamp is required to
replace after the auto-lamp changing (in other word, when spare lamp
status is “USED”, “JUNK” or no attaching). It blinks once in 5 seconds.
The mark will disappear when the spare lamp is replaced to “NEW”
(new or not-deteriorated lamp). Even if the spare lamp status is not
“NEW”, you can erase the indication by resetting the spare lamp
operating time (on page 77).
[Pre-announcement of auto-lamp changing]
The message appears when brightness deterioration is detected. The
auto-lamp changing starts after 5-minute displaying.

Note:
•
With VC-B20KA, the front porch width in an input signal is required more than 12 pixels.
•
Because the following pairs of signals have the same scanning frequencies, their signal formats
may be selected incorrectly in automatic input signal scanning. When the selected signal format
is wrong, the signal won’t be displayed with correct colors. In such cases, executes automatic
input signal scanning (chapter 1.7.3, on page 57) again to reselect other signal formats.
*1: HDTV (16:9) format in RGB signal and 1080i or 720p (16:9) format in YCBCR (YPBPR) signal
*2: 640x480 /60 Hz in RGB signal and 480p (4:3) format in YCBCR (YPBPR) signal
•
The following signals are processed as follows:
*3: The signal undergoes under sampling at the specified resolution.
*4: The signal is displayed with over scan.
*5: This signal isn’t supported when it is supplied to the DIGITAL IN connector.

CSC Table Selection
Auto CSC function
Wallaby can automatically calculate the optimum
CSC values from color data which cubes
originally retains or measured with a color
analyzer.
1. In “Auto CSC” menu in “Function” in “Edit
CSC Table” window, select “Calculates from
the data in each cube”.
2. Wallaby automatically calculates the optimum CSC values and send them to cubes. The
calculated CSC values reflect on your selected CSC table 1 or 2.
3. After the automatic adjustment, you can put a finish on insufficient areas by manual (on page
45).
When you select “Calculates from the data file” in the step 1, the file-selecting window appears.
Designate a .csv file, which was created with the color analyzer control software. The calculated
CSC values are sent back to cubes in the order of panel IDs. Be sure the color data was
measured in this order.
Note:
The brightness/color data in each cube is measured at factory. The color balance may not match
with Auto CSC function in the following cases. Adjust it by manual (on page 45) or with a color
analyzer (on page 44).
•
Auto CSC adjustment after long lamp use or lamp replacement.
•
With different types of screens from Mitsubishi specified standard screen.
•
Changer lighting with lamp B. The color data was measured with lamp A.
•
When “Data is invalid or nothing” message appears in the software.
Optimize gain function
This adjustment is normally unnecessary since Auto CSC (described above) and SENSOR
functions (chapter 1.5.2.7, on page 47) include the same function.
