ENGLISH - 9
Precautions with regard to safety
„„ON USE/INSTALLATION
Important
Information
Do not put your weight on this projector.
You could fall or the projector could break, and injury
will result.
zzBe especially careful not to let young children stand
or sit on the projector.
Do not place the projector in extremely
hot locations.
Doing so will cause the outer casing or internal components to deteriorate, or result in fire.
zzTake particular care in locations exposed to direct
sunlight or near stoves.
Always disconnect all cables before moving the projector.
Moving the projector with cables still attached can
damage the cables, which will cause fire or electric
shocks to occur.
„„ACCESSORIES
Do not use the old lamp unit.
If used it could cause lamp explosion.
If the lamp has broken, ventilate the room
immediately. Do not touch or bring your
face close to the broken pieces.
Failure to observe this will cause the user to absorb
the gas which was released when the lamp broke and
which contains nearly the same amount of mercury as
fluorescent lamps, and the broken pieces will cause
injury.
If you believe that you have absorbed the gas or that
the gas has got into your eyes or mouth, seek medical advice immediately.
Ask your dealer about replacing the lamp unit and
check the inside of the projector.
Do not use projectors with the adjustable
feet or lens cover removed.
If this not observed, the sets will not operate correctly
or accidents will result.
Cautions when transporting
When transporting the projector, the adjuster legs
must be housed and do not hold them. Please securely hold only its bottom and none of its other parts
or surfaces as this will result in malfunctions.
When transporting, keep the projector in the
provided carrying bag.
zzFace the lens of the projector in an upward direction and put it gently into the carrying bag.
zzDo not put anything other than the projector and its
accessories in the carrying bag.
10 - ENGLISH
Cautions when installing
„„Do not use under the following
conditions.
zzDo not set up the projector outdoors.
The projector is designed for indoor use only.
zzAvoid setting up in places which are subject to
vibration or shocks.
If the projector is installed in a place where vibrations are transmitted or mounted in a car or a vessel, vibrations or impacts will result in damage to
the internal parts, causing failure. Install the product
in a place free from vibrations and impacts.
zzAvoid setting up in places which are subject to
sudden temperature changes, such as near an
air conditioner or lighting equipment.
Failure to observe this will result in malfunctions or
the lamp life will be shortened.
See “TEMP indicator” on page 48.
zzAvoid setting up in places which are near highvoltage power lines or near motors.
The product will be exposed to interference if it is
installed in the vicinity of high-voltage electrical
power lines or power sources.
zzDo not install the projector at elevations higher
than 2 700 m (8 858 ft) above sea level.
If using this projector at high elevations 1 400 2 700 m (4 593 - 8 858 ft) above sea level, set the
HIGH ALTITUDE MODE to ON.
Failure to observe this will result in malfunctions
or the lamp life or life of other components will be
shortened.
„„Be sure to ask a specialised technician when installing the product
to a ceiling.
If the product is to be installed hanging from the ceiling, purchase an optional hanging attachment (Model
No. ET-PKB80). Please call a specialised technician
or contact an Authorised Service Centre for installation.
„„Lens Focus
Do not adjust the lens focus in the initial period after
switching the projector on. The high clarity projector
lens is thermally affected by the light from the light
source, making the focus unstable in the period just
after switching on. Please allow a warm-up time of at
least 30 minutes before adjusting the lens focus.
Precautions with regard to safety
„„In order to get the picture quality
Draw curtains or blinds over windows and turn off any
lights near the screen to prevent outside light or light
from indoor lamps from shining onto the screen.
Depending on where the projector is used, air exhaust
vents or the warm air from air conditioning can cause
a shimmering effect on the screen. For this reason,
take care not to shield the air exhaust vents and consider the direction of the air flowing from air conditioning.
„„Do not touch the surface of the
projector lens cover with your
bare hand.
If the surface of the lens becomes dirty from fingerprints or anything else, this will be magnified and
projected onto the screen.
„„Do not move the projector while it
is operating or subject it to vibration or impact.
The service life of its internal components will be
shortened.
„„The projector has a high pressure
mercury lamp that is characterised
as follows:
zzThe brightness of the lamp will decrease over time.
zzThe lamp may explode or shorten the lamp life by
shocks or chipping damage.
zzIn rare cases, it may burst shortly after the first use.
zzThe possibility of its bursting increases when the
lamp is used beyond the replacement time.
zzIf the lamp bursts, gas inside the lamp is released
in the form of smoke.
zzThe life of a mercury lamp varies according to the
individual difference or conditions of use.
zzIn particular, turning the power on and off frequently
and/or repeatedly as well as continuous use for
10 hours will greatly affect the life cycle. Provide a
lamp for replacement in advance.
„„Connection to external device
When connecting the projector to a computer or
external device, use the mains lead supplied with the
corresponding device and a commercially available
shielded interface cable.
„„Optical components
It may be necessary to replace the optical components such as Liquid crystal panels and Polarizing
plates in less than 1 year if using the projector in a
high temperature environment or in a very dusty, oily
smoke or tobacco smoke environment. For more
details, please contact your dealer.
„„Liquid crystal panel
The Liquid crystal panels are precision-made. Note
that in rare cases, pixels of high precision could be
missing or always lit, but this is not a malfunction.
Do not project the same image for long periods of
time, as this may remain as an afterimage on the liquid crystal panel. Display the white screen test pattern
for more than an hour to remove it. See “TEST PATTERN” on page 44.

Care and Replacement
Replacing the Lamp unit
JJAir filter
The air filter should be replaced when cleaning is ineffective and when replacing the lamp unit. A replacement
air filter is provided with a replacement lamp unit (ET-LAB80). Contact an Authorised Service Centre for the
optional air filter (TXFMZ01VKG7).
JJLamp unit
The lamp unit, ET-LAB80 is consumable and you must replace it regularly. It is recommended that a qualified
technician carry the lamp unit replacement and consult with an Authorised Service Centre.
JJNote on lamp unit replacement
zz Handle the lamp unit with special care as it is a glass
product. Dropping or giving it a shock may cause it
to burst or to be damaged.
zz If you wish to discard the used lamp, please contact
your local authorities or dealer and ask for the
correct method of disposal.
zz Prepare a Phillips-head screwdriver.
zz When replacing the lamp unit, be sure to hold it by
the handle.
zz Hold the lamp unit horizontally to prevent broken
pieces from scattering. When the projector is
mounted in the ceiling, do not work directly under the
projector or put your face close to the projector, and pull out the lamp
horizontally.
Note
zz Prior to replacing the lamp unit, allow it to cool down to prevent the risk of burns, damage and other hazards.
Remarks
zz Do not attempt replacement with an unauthorised lamp unit.
JJLamp unit replacement time
When the lamp is consumed, the brightness may decrease over time. 3 000 hours of use is the replacing
time as a rough guide, and that might be shortened by the usage conditions, characteristics of the lamp unit
or environmental conditions. You can find the duration of usage time by checking LAMP RUNTIME in the
