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.
To adjust keystone:
Press the KEYSTONE button on the projector or the
remote control to display KEYSTONE, and adjust the
image by pressing the X, W, S or T button (or VOLUME
+ or - button on the remote control).
In the following cases (for front projection):
Press the X
button.
Press the W
button.
Press the T
(or -) button.
Press the S
(or +) button.
Important:
• For proper keystone adjustment results, reset the lens to the factory-adjusted position using LENS SHIFT RESET
in the INSTALLATION menu before carrying out keystone adjustment. (See page 24.)
• When the keystone adjustment is carried out, the adjustment value is indicated. Note that this value doesn’t mean
a projection angle.
• The allowable range of the adjustment value in the keystone adjustment varies depending on the installation
conditions.
• When the keystone adjustment takes effect, the resolution decreases. In addition, stripes may appear or straight
lines may bend in images with complicated patterns. They are not due to product malfunctions.
• When the keystone adjustment is performed, the displayed image may be distorted.
• Depending on the installation conditions of the projector and the screen, a perfect rectangular image and the
proper aspect ratio may not be obtained.
• Noise may appear on the screen during the keystone adjustment because of the type of the video signal being
projected and the setting values of the keystone adjustment. In such cases, set the keystone adjustment values in
the range where the image is displayed without noise.
• When horizontal and vertical keystone adjustments are performed in combination, the adjustable range becomes
narrower than in the case when they are performed separately.
• In the keystone adjustment with the option lens, the proper aspect ratio may not be obtained.

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 separately sold that is exclusive to this projector. Contact your dealer for purchase of the lamp.
Spare lamp
VLT-XL6600LP
Warning:
• Be careful not to drop the lamp fixing screws into the 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. You may be injured in your eye by flying or falling
glass fragments.
• Don’t replace the lamp immediately after use because the lamp cover is very hot. You may get burned. Turn off the
power using the POWER button. After the lamp goes out, wait about 2 minutes until the intake and exhaust fans
for cooling the lamp stop rotating. Then turn off the main power switch, unplug the power cord, and wait at least 1
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 1 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 1 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: 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.
• Be sure to use the lamp exclusive to this projector, VLT-XL6600LP. Use of other lamps may cause a failure of the
projector.

Be sure to use the projector with an air-filter. If not, dust may get inside the projector causing fire and failure.
Cleaning of the projector and the ventilation slots
Use a soft cloth to clean the projector and the ventilation grilles. When the grilles become dirty, wipe them with a soft
cloth dampened with diluted mild detergent, and then wipe them with a dry cloth.
• Clean the inside of the terminal cover frequently as dust is apt to be collected.
To protect the surface of the projector from fading or deteriorating:
• Do not spray insecticide on or inside the projector.
• Do not use benzine or thinner to clean it.
• Do not let rubber or plastic materials contact with projector.
Cleaning of the lens
Use a standard lens-cleaning brush or a piece of lens tissue dampened with lens cleaning fluid. The lens surface is
fragile. Use only recommended, nonabrasive lens-cleaning materials. Do not touch the lens with your fingers.

Problem
Solution
“NO SIGNAL” is
displayed.
• Turn on the power of the connected device, or check whether there is something
wrong with the connected device.
• Check whether the external device output signals. (Check this especially when the
external device is a notebook computer.)
• Check that the cable connected to the external device isn’t defective.
• Check that the projector is connected to the external device using the correct
terminals.
• Check that the connected device is correctly selected as the input source.
• When an extension cord is being used, replace it with the supplied cable and check
whether images are projected correctly. If images are projected correctly, use an RGB
signal amplifier along with the extension cord.
Images are not displayed correctly.
Problem
Solution
Projected images are
shaking.
Projected images are
displaced.
• Check that the cable connected to the external device isn’t intermittent.
• Connect the cable’s plug with the external device’s connector firmly.
• Project an image containing many characters such as a help menu and press the
AUTO POSITION button.
• Some computers output out-of-spec signals on rare occasion. Adjust the SIGNAL
menu. (See pages 30 and 31.)
• Adjust the projector and the screen so that they are perpendicular to each other. (See
page 11.)
• Adjust BRIGHTNESS and CONTRAST in the IMAGE menu. (See page 28.)
• Replace the lamp. (See page 39.)
• Adjust the focus. (See pages 15 and 20.)
• Clean the lens.
• Press the W or X button on the remote control to eliminate flicker.
• Adjust TRACKING and FINE SYNC. in the SIGNAL menu. (See page 31.)
• Adjust BRIGHTNESS and CONTRAST in the IMAGE menu. (See page 28.)
• Adjust the projector and the screen so that they are perpendicular to each other. (See
page 11.)
• This phenomenon is improved by keeping projecting an evenly bright image. (Such
“image burn-in” phenomenon where afterimages persist on the screen may occur if a
stationary image is kept displayed on the screen for a long time.)
• This phenomenon is unique to LCD projector and isn’t a product malfunction.
(A small number of pixels always stay on or off, which are not malfunctions. More than
99.99% of the pixels are effective.)
Projected images are
distorted.
Projected images are
dark.
Projected images are
blurred.
Afterimages persist on
the screen.
Red, blue, and
green dots appear in
projected images.
Black dots appear in
projected images.
Fine streaks are seen
on projected images.
Projected images
become wavy.
Hue is not appropriate.
Tint in projected
images is incorrect.
Different color tint.
Only the motion areas
in the images supplied
from the computer
aren’t displayed.
• This is due to interference with the screen surface and is not a malfunction. Replace
the screen or displace the focus a little.
• Vertical or horizontal streak noise may appear on the projected image, depending on
the type of the DVD player or game console you use. In such a case, you can reduce
such streak noise by enabling the LPF.
• Connect the plugs of the cables to external devices securely.
• Keep the projector away from devices that emit interfering radio waves.
• When the keystone adjustment is carried out, the image may not be displayed
correctly depending on the type of input signal. This isn’t a product malfunction. In
this case, readjust the keystone so that the amount of keystone correction is as small
as possible.
• Check that the cables connected to the external devices are not broken.
• Check that COMPUTER INPUT in the SIGNAL menu is correctly set. (See page 26.)
• Check that the cable connected to the external device isn’t broken.
• When comparing images projected by two projectors, tints in the displayed images
may be different because of variation between their optical components. This is not a
malfunction.
• When comparing the image projected by this projector with those displayed on the
television or PC monitor, tints in the displayed images may be different because of
difference in the range of color reproducibility. This is not a malfunction.
• This is caused by the computer being used. Contact the manufacturer of your
computer.

• Images with SYNC on G (Green) signal may jitter.
• Images with SYNC on G (Green) signal may be
tinged with green.
• If the resolution and frequency of your computer
aren’t shown on the table, find the compatible
resolution and frequency by changing the resolution
of your computer.
• TV60 and TV50 are equivalent to 480i and 576i
respectively. When these signals are supplied to
the VIDEO IN or S-VIDEO IN terminal, the signal

only their center part is displayed in the REAL
mode. The area exceeding the panel resolution isn’t
displayed.
• In the REAL mode, images are black-framed
when the image resolution is lower than the panel
resolution.
