1. Remove the back lid of the remote control.
2. Check the polarity (+), (-) of the batteries, and set them
correctly, inserting their (-) side first.
• If the battery is inserted from the (+) side first,
inserting the (-) side is difficult because the coil spring
end hits on the battery side. If the battery is forced in
this way, the outer label of the battery may get ripped
and it may cause a short-circuit and heating.
3. Attach the back lid.
Important:
• Use two size-AA batteries (R6).
• Replace the two batteries with new ones when the
remote control is slow to respond.
Removing the batteries from the remote control
Remove the back lid of the remote control and take out the batteries.
Caution:
• Use of a battery of wrong type may cause explosion.
• Only Carbon-Zinc or Alkaline-Manganese Dioxide type batteries should be used.
• Dispose of used batteries according to your local regulations.
• Before you dispose of the batteries, insulate them by placing insulation tape on the positive (+) and negative (-)
terminals. If you dispose of the batteries together with other conductive objects such as a metal piece, they may
short out, resulting in fire or explosion.
• Batteries may explode if misused. Do not recharge, disassemble, or heat the batteries, or put them into fire or
water.
• Be sure to handle the batteries according to the instructions.
• Load the batteries with its positive (+) and negative (-) sides correctly oriented as indicated on the remote control.
• Keep batteries out of reach of children and pets. If children swallow the battery, see a doctor immediately.
• Remove the batteries, if the remote control is not used for a long time.

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 page 12.)
• 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 ADVANCED MENU of IMAGE
menu according to the aspect ratio of the actual screen. Select 16:9 when the aspect ratio of the screen is 16:9 or
4:3, and select CINEMA SCOPE (2.35:1) when the aspect ratio is 2.35:1 (CinemaScope).
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 480i/p, 576i/p, 720p, or 1080i/p signal is input, the part
for displaying subtitles is not projected. To display subtitles, reset SCREEN SIZE to 16:9 and adjust the image
position using VERTICAL LOCATION in the ADVANCED MENU of the IMAGE menu. (To display the menu on the
screen, adjust SHUTTER(U) in the SIGNAL - USER menu to position the menu.)

ventilation.
• Place the projector at least 50 cm (or 20 inch) away
from the wall to prevent the intake vents and the
exhaust vents 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 position, or with the lens facing
down.
• Near a heater.
• In an oily, smoky, or damp place such as a kitchen.
• In direct sunlight.
• Where the temperature rises high, such as in a
closed car.
• Where the temperature is lower than +41ºF (or
+5ºC) or higher than +95ºF (or +35ºC ).
• Keep foliage plants and pets away from the
projector. The temperature around the exhaust
vents and that of the cabinet on the top of the
exhaust vents become high. Take special care for
small children.
Caution:
• 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 a metal bar
or wire 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
a metal bar, wire, or screw that bears a load of at
least 70 kgf. When using a metal wire, secure one
end to a screw hole marked with an arrow on the
rear terminal panel and the other end to the mount
kit. (Don’t use screw holes without arrow marks.) In
this case, make sure that the screw is inserted in
the projector at least 5 mm. The length of the screw
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.

Important:
• If the viewing distance is nearer than the
recommended distance, it will cause physical
discomfort and eye fatigue.
• The 3D glasses may not work properly when it is
used too far from the screen.
• Watch the contents in front of the screen, not at big
angle. If you are viewing the screen at big angle,
you may not be able to view 3D contents correctly.
• There are personal differences in viewing the 3D
images. For persons with myopia, hypermetropia,
astigmatism or left and right sights, please wear
glasses to correct them then wear the 3D glasses.
• The picture seems misplaced at the start of
projecting the 3D images, however, this is not a
malfunction.
• 3D images converted from 2D images appear
blurred due to conversion.
• While side-by-side or top-and-bottom 3D images are
displayed, the aspect ratio setting is fixed to 16:9.
• When you display a menu or dialog while viewing
side-by-side or top-and-bottom 3D images, they
are displayed in the 2D mode temporarily. When
the menu or dialog disappears, they are displayed
in the 3D mode again.
Viewing 3D images (continued)
• When viewing contents with movements such as
rotation, or horizontal or vertical oscillation, you
may feel as if you are actually moving. If such a
feeling results in discomfort, look away from the
screen.
• When using the 3D glasses, be careful not to strike
the screen or other people by mistake. As the
images are in 3D, you may mistake the distance
from the screen, causing to strike the screen which
may result in injury. When using the 3D glasses,
do not place breakable objects near the glasses.
You may move by mistaking the 3D objects you are
viewing as the real objects, causing damages to
surrounding objects that may lead to injury.
• When using the 3D glasses, make sure your eyes
are on an approximate horizontal level. If you
suffer from myopia (short sightedness), hyperopia
(far-sightedness), astigmatism, or have eyesight
differences between the left and right eyes, please
use corrective glasses or other such methods to
correct your eyesight before putting on the 3D
glasses.
• When you view the 3D images, keep a distance
from the screen of about three times the effective
height of the screen.
• The keystone setting is invalid (restored to the
default setting) while you are watching the 3D
images. The setting can not be changed.
• When connecting the projector and a player such
as BD player through a HDMI signal distributor or
AV amplifier via HDMI cable, make sure to use the
HDMI signal distributor or AV amplifier supporting
HDMI 1.4 (3D).
• This projector controls the open/close timing of
the 3D glasses lenses (liquid crystal shutter) by
using the infra-red signals received from the 3D
emitter. Therefore, in rare cases, a remote control of
other devices such as an air conditioner or lighting
apparatus which uses the infra-red signals may not
operate properly (while you are watching the 3D
images). However, it is not a malfunction.
Caution:
Notes on danger to public health during watching
3D image
• Stop viewing the 3D image immediately if you feel
tired, discomfort, or any other abnormality. It may
cause you to feel unwell if continuing to watch the
3D image in such cases. Please take the necessary
rest, do not continue watch the 3D image for a long
time. Stop using the 3D glasses if you can clearly
see double images when viewing 3D content.
Prolonged use may cause eyesight fatigue.
• The following people need to refrain from use as
with 2D image.
• a photosensitive patient
• a patient with heart disease
• a person in poor physical condition
• a sleepy person
• a very tired person
• a drunk person
• children
• When watching 3D movies, take an appropriate
break after watching a movie. When watching 3D
content on interactive devices such as 3D games
or computers, take an appropriate break every
30-60 minutes. Prolonged use may cause eyesight
fatigue.
• When you feel uncomfortable, stop viewing
3D images and playing 3D games until you are
restored. If necessary, consult a doctor. Also,
stop driving a car until you are restored (for about
2 hours). The period to restore varies with the
individual.
• As a guide, 3D glasses should not be used by
children younger than 5 - 6 years old. As it is
difficult to judge younger children’s reactions to
fatigue or discomfort, their physical condition may
deteriorate suddenly. When this product is being
used by a child, the parent or guardian should
check to ensure that the child’s eyes are not
becoming tired.
• When viewing the pictures that roll over and
shake or many dynamic pictures, if you feel
uncomfortable, please look at another place.

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.
Spare lamp
VLT-HC7800LP
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.
• Do not touch the lamp with bare hands or give a shock to the lamp. Attach the lamp properly. Improper handling
may cause explosion.
• 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.
• Keep small parts such as screws out of the reach of babies and children. If swallowed, those parts can cause
suffocation. In case a baby or a child swallows them, see a doctor.
Interval of lamp replacement
The recommended interval of lamp replacement is about 5000 hours*1*2 of consecutive use. Such interval differs
depending on the operating environment and may be shorter than 5000 hours*1*2. Decrease in luminescence and/or
color brightness indicates that the lamp needs to be replaced. When the lamp operation time exceeds 3750 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 4750 hours*1, the replacement message (LAMP REPLACEMENT)
will appear on the screen for one minute every 25 hours*1 thereafter. When the lamp operation time exceeds 5000
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 3000 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.
• When removing the lamp from the ceiling-mounted projector, use the lamp replacement attachment packed with
the projector or option lamp to prevent glass fragments from scattering.
• Be sure to use the lamp exclusive to this projector, VLT-HC7800LP. Use of other lamps may cause a failure of the
projector.
