turning off the projector.
Turn the power off, wait for a sufficient amount of cooling time and then
turn the power on to operate. If the same problem occurs continually, contact your product distributor or service center.
This Projector uses a cooling fan system to keep the unit from overheating. Operation of the cooling fan may cause noise,
which does not affect product performance and is part of normal operation.

•
<Front-Ceiling> : Horizontal/Vertical Reversed Image
•
<Rear-Floor> : Horizontally Reversed Image

<Eco> : This mode is optimized for screens smaller than 100 inches.
This mode decreases the lamp brightness and power consumption in order to extend the lamp
lifetime and reduce noise and power consumption.
•
<Bright> : This mode maximizes the lamp brightness when the ambient illumination is bright. As
the brightness of the lamp increases, the lamp lifetime can be reduced and the noise and power
consumption may increase.
If video scenes are distorted or tilted, you can compensate for this by setting the <Auto Keystone>
function to <On> so that the <V-Keystone> function automatically starts.
•
V-Keystone
<Off>-<On>
If video scenes are distorted or tilted, you can compensate for this using the vertical Keystone function.
The sound output of your projector is temporarily stopped while the keystone is being changed.
The keystone is not compensated for in the On Screen Display (OSD).

More Information
The LCD panel used in the LCD projector consists of hundreds of thousands of fine pixels. Like other video display devices,
the LCD panel may contain bad pixels which do not operate. When shipping a product, the conditions for identifying bad
pixels and the number of bad pixels that a LCD panel is allowed to contain are strictly managed in accordance with the
relevant specified standards by the LCD panel manufacturer and our company. Though a screen may have some dead
pixels, this does not affect the overall screen quality and the lifetime of the product.
