Choosing a location
Your room layout or personal preference will dictate which installation location you select. Take into consideration
the size and position of your screen, the location of a suitable power outlet, as well as the location and distance
between the projector and the rest of your equipment.
Your projector is designed to be installed in one of the possible installation locations:
1.

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 non-recommended ceiling mount
kit or installation of the ceiling mount kit in an improper location.
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.
•
Be sure to use this projector at an altitude of less than 1500 meters.
•
Installation must be done by a qualified professional.
When the projector is installed on the ceiling using the ceiling mount kit, it is recommended to hold the mount kit and the
projector using metal bars or wires in addition to the mount kit fixing screws to prevent the projector from falling due to
an earthquake or other cause. For that purpose, use metal bars, wires, or screws that bear a load of at least 70 kgf. When
using metal wires, secure one end to a screw hole marked with an arrow on the rear terminal panel and the other end to
the mount kit. (Do not use screw holes without arrow marks.) In this case, make sure that the screws are inserted in the
projector at least 5 mm. The length of the screws should be 20 mm or shorter. Also make sure that no electrical current is
flowing in the mount kit due to current leakage or other cause.

ENGLISH
Positioning your projector
Obtaining a preferred projected image size
The distance from the projector lens to the screen, the zoom setting (if available), and the video format each factors in
the projected image size.
4:3 is the native aspect ratio of EX321U-ST. To be able to project a complete 16:9 (widescreen) aspect ratio image,
the projector can resize and scale a widescreen image to the projector's native aspect width. This will result in a
proportionally smaller height equivalent to 75% of the projector's native aspect height.
4:3 aspect image in a 4:3 aspect display area
16:9 aspect image scaled to a 4:3 aspect display area
Thus, a 16:9 aspect image will not utilize 25% of the height of a 4:3 aspect image displayed by this projector. This
will be seen as darkened (unlit) bars along the top and bottom (vertical 12.5% height respectively) of the 4:3
projection display area whenever displaying a scaled 16:9 aspect image in the vertical center of the 4:3 projection
display area.
16:10 is the native aspect ratio of EW331U-ST. To be able to project a complete 16:9 (widescreen) aspect ratio image,
the projector can resize and scale a widescreen image to the projector's native aspect width. This will result in a
proportionally smaller height equivalent to 90% of the projector's native aspect height.
4:3 aspect image in a 16:10 aspect display area
16:9 aspect image scaled to a 16:10 aspect display area
Thus, a 16:9 aspect image will not utilize 10% of the height of a 16:10 aspect image displayed by this projector. This
will be seen as darkened (unlit) bars along the top and bottom (vertical 5% height respectively) of the 16:10 projection
display area whenever displaying a scaled 16:9 aspect image in the vertical center of the 16:10 projection display area.
The projector should always be placed horizontally level (like flat on a table), and positioned directly perpendicular
(90° right-angle square) to the horizontal center of the screen. This prevents image distortion caused by angled
projections (or projecting onto angled surfaces).
The modern digital projector does not project directly forward (like older style reel-to-reel film projectors did).
Instead, digital projectors are designed to project at a slightly upward angle above the horizontal plane of the
projector. This is so that they can be readily placed on a table and will project forward and upwards onto a screen
positioned so that the bottom edge of the screen is above the level of the table (and everyone in the room can see the
screen).
You can see from the diagram on page 14, that this type of projection causes the bottom edge of the projected image to
be vertically offset from the horizontal plane of the projector.
If the projector is positioned further away from the screen, the projected image size increases, and the vertical offset
also increases proportionately.
When determining the position of the screen and projector, you will need to account for both the projected image size
and the vertical offset dimension, which are directly proportional to the projection distance.
When fine streaks are seen on projected images
This is due to interference with the screen surface and is not a mal-function. Replace the screen or displace the focus a
little.

Determine the aspect ratio of your screen, 16:9 or 4:3. If you have a 4:3 screen, refer to the table labeled
"(Standard)". If you have a 16:9 screen, refer to the table labeled "(16:9)".
Select your screen size.
Refer to the table and find the closest match to your screen size in the left columns labeled "Screen". Using this
value, look across this row to the right to find the corresponding average distance from screen value in the
column labeled "Distance from the screen: L". This is the projection distance.
On that same row, look across to the right column and make note of the "Hd" value. This will determine the final
vertical offset placement of the projector in relation to the edge of the screen.
The recommended position for the projector is aligned perpendicular to the horizontal center of the screen, at the
distance from the screen determined in step 3 above, and offset by the value determined in step 4 above.
EX321U-ST: For example, if you are using a 4:3 aspect ratio, 100-inch screen, distance from the screen is 1.2 m and
with a vertical offset of 23 cm.
EW331U-ST: For example, if you are using a 16:10 aspect ratio, 100-inch screen, distance from the screen is 1.1 m
and with a vertical offset of 7 cm.
If you place the projector in a different position (to that recommended), you will have to tilt it down or up to center the
image on the screen. In these situations, some image distortion will occur. Use the Keystone function to correct the
distortion. See "Correcting keystone" on page 25 for details.
How to determine the recommended screen size for a given distance
This method can be used for situations where you have purchased this projector and would like to know what screen
size will fit in your room.
The maximum screen size is limited by the physical space available in your room.
1.

4.
Measure the distance between the projector and where you want to position the screen. This is the projection
distance.
Refer to the table "(Standard)" or "(16:9)", and find the closest match to your measurement in the distance from
the screen column. If the min and max values are available on the table, check that your measured distance is
between the min and max distances listed on either side of the average distance value.
Using this value, look across that row to the left to find the corresponding "Screen". That is the projected image
size of the projector at that projection distance.
On that same row, look across to the right column and make note of the "Hd" value. This will determine the final
placement of the screen in relation to the horizontal plane of the projector.
EX321U-ST: For example, if your measured projection distance was 1.5 m and your screen aspect ratio is 4:3, the
closest match in the "Distance from the screen: L" column is 1.5 m. Looking across this row shows that a 120-inch
screen is required.
EW331U-ST: For example, if your measured projection distance was 1.5 m and your screen aspect ratio is 16:10, the
closest match in the "Distance from the screen: L" column is from 1.6 m. Looking across this row shows that a 150inch screen is required.

In the unlikely event that you connect the projector to a DVD player via the projector's HDMI input and the projected picture
displays wrong colors, please change the color space to YUV. See "Changing Color Space" on page 24 for details.
When you connect this projector and a Digital device (such as a DVD player) via the HDMI terminal, black color may appear dark
and deep, depending on the type of the connected device.
• This depends on the black level setting of the connected device. There are two kinds of methods to digitally transfer image
data, in which different black level settings are employed respectively. Therefore, the specifications of the signals output
from DVD players differ, depending on the type of the digital data transfer method they use.
• Some DVD players are provided with a function to switch the methods to output digital signals. When your DVD player is
provided with such function, set it as follows.
EXPAND or ENHANCED -> NORMAL
• See the users guide of your DVD player for details.
• When you switch to HDMI input, the projected picture may display wrong colors for about 1 second. This is not product
malfunction.

3D Color Management
In most installation situations, color management will not be necessary, such as in classroom, meeting room, or
lounge room situations where lights remain on, or where building external windows allow daylight into the room.
Only in permanent installations with controlled lighting levels such as boardrooms, lecture theaters, or home theaters,
should color management be considered. Color management provides fine color control adjustment to allow for more
accurate color reproduction, should you require it.
Proper color management can only be achieved under controlled and reproducible viewing conditions. You will need
to use a colorimeter (color light meter), and provide a set of suitable source images to measure color reproduction.
These tools are not provided with the projector, however, your projector supplier should be able to provide you with
suitable guidance, or even an experienced professional installer.
The Color Management provides six sets (RGBCMY) of colors to be adjusted. When you select each color, you can
independently adjust its range and saturation according to your preference.
If you have purchased a test disc which contains various color test patterns and can be used to test the color
presentation on monitors, TVs, projectors, etc. You can project any image from the disc on the screen and enter the 3D
Color Management menu to make adjustments.
To adjust the settings:

Please refer to the illustration to the right for how the colors relate to each
other.
For example, if you select Red and set its range at 0, only pure red in the
projected picture will be selected. Increasing its range will include red close
to yellow and red close to magenta.
5.
Press

Saturation is the amount of that color in a video picture. Lower settings produce less saturated colors; a setting of “0” removes
that color from the image entirely. If the saturation is too high, that color will be overpowering and unrealistic.
Using Wall Screen
In the situation where you are projecting onto a colored surface such as a painted wall which may not be white, the
Wall Screen feature can help correct the projected picture’s color to prevent possible color difference between the
source and projected pictures.
To use this function, go to the DISPLAY > Wall Screen menu and press / to select a color which is the closest

Lamp information
Getting to know the lamp hour
When the projector is in operation, the duration (in hours) of lamp usage is automatically calculated by the built-in
timer. The method of calculating the equivalent lamp hour is as follows:
Total (equivalent) lamp hour
= 1 (hours used in Low mode) + 10/7 (hours used in Standard mode)
See "Setting Lamp mode as Low" below for more information on Low mode.
The lamp hour in Low mode is calculated as 7/10 of that in Standard mode. That is, using the projector in Low mode
helps to extend the lamp hour by 3/7.
To obtain the lamp hour information:
1. Press MENU/EXIT and then press / until the SYSTEM SETUP: Advanced menu is highlighted.
2. Press to highlight Lamp Settings and press MODE/ENTER. The Lamp Settings page is displayed.
3. You will see the Equivalent lamp hour information appearing on the menu.
4. To leave the menu, press MENU/EXIT.
You can also get the lamp hour information on the INFORMATION menu.
Extending lamp life
The projection lamp is a consumable item that normally can last up to 3500 (used in Standard mode)-5000 (used in
Low mode) hours with proper usage. Such interval differs depending on the operating environment and may be
shorter than 3500-5000 hours. To keep the lamp life as long as possible, you can do the following settings via the OSD
menu.
Setting Lamp mode as Low
Using Low mode reduces system noise and power consumption by 20%. If the Low mode is selected, the light output
will be reduced and result in darker projected pictures.
Setting the projector in Low mode also extends the lamp operation life. To set Low mode, go into the SYSTEM
SETUP: Advanced > Lamp Settings > Lamp mode menu and press / .
•
When this mode is switched, the projected images may flicker.
•
If this mode is frequently switched, the lamp may be deteriorated.
Setting Auto Power Off
This function allows the projector to turn off automatically if no input source is detected and no operation is made by
user after a set period of time to prevent unnecessary waste of lamp life.
To set Auto Power Off, go into the SYSTEM SETUP: Basic > Auto Power Off menu and press / . The time
period can be set from 5 to 30 minutes in 5-minute increments. If the preset time lengths are not suitable for your
presentation, select Disable. The projector will not automatically shut down in a certain time period.
EN-48
When the lamp indicator lights up red or a message appears suggesting it is time to replace the lamp, please install a
new lamp or consult your dealer. An old lamp may cause a malfunction in the projector and in some instances the
lamp may explode.
The LAMP indicator light and TEMPerature indicator light will light up if the lamp becomes too hot. Turn the power off and let the
projector cool for 45 minutes. If the Lamp or LAMP indicator light still lights up after turning the power back on, please contact
your dealer. See "Indicators" on page 53 for details.
The following lamp warning displays will remind you to change the lamp.
Status
Message
The lamp has been in operation for 3750 hours. Install a new lamp for
optimal performance. If the projector is normally run with Low selected
(See "Setting Lamp mode as Low" on page 48), you may continue to operate
the projector until the 4750 hour lamp warning appears.
The lamp has been in operation for 4750 hours. A new lamp should be fitted
to avoid the inconvenience when the projector runs out of lamp time.
The lamp has been in operation for 5000 hours.
It is strongly recommended that you replace the lamp at this age.
The lamp is a consumable item. The lamp brightness diminishes with use.
This is normal lamp behavior. You can replace the lamp whenever you
notice that the brightness level has significantly diminished. If the lamp is
not replaced beforehand, it must be replaced after 5000 hours usage.
The lamp MUST be replaced before the projector will operate normally.

Timing of replacing the lamp
Replacing the lamp
Spare lamp for EX321U-ST/EW331U-ST: VLT-EX320LP
•
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.
•
To reduce the risk of electrical shock, always turn the projector off and disconnect the power cord before changing the
lamp.
•
To reduce the risk of severe burns, allow the projector to cool for at least 45 minutes before replacing the lamp.
•
To reduce the risk of injuries to fingers and damage to internal components, use caution when removing lamp glass that
has shattered into sharp pieces. To reduce the risk of injuries to fingers and/or compromising image quality by touching
the lens, do not touch the empty lamp compartment when the lamp is removed.
•
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.
•
If the lamp should break, never shake the lamp box or hold it in front of your face after removing it. The glass fragments
may fall out and cause injury to your eyes.
•
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.
•
Contact your dealer when replacing the lamp unit with the projector mounted to the ceiling.
•
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.
•
This lamp contains mercury. Consult your local hazardous waste regulations to dispose of this lamp in a proper manner.
•
Be sure to use the lamp dedicated to this projector, VLT-EX320LP for EX321U-ST/EW331U-ST. Use of other lamps may
cause a failure of the projector.

•
Do not place the lamp in locations where water might splash on it, children
can reach it, or near flammable materials.
•

touch the optical components inside, it could cause color unevenness and
distortion of the projected images.
