case of 4:3 panel, etc., for long time, the LCD panel might possibly be printed.
6
Safety Precautions (continued)
NOTE
About consumables.
Lamp, LCD panels, polarizors and other optical components, and air filter and cooling fans
have a different lifetime in each. These parts may need to be replaced after a long usage
time.
• This product isn’t designed for continuous use of long time. In the case of continuous use
for 6 hours or more, or use for 6 hours or more every day (even if it isn’t continuous), or
repetitious use, the lifetime may be shortened, and these parts may need to be replaced
even if one year has not passed since the beginning of using.
• Any inclining use beyond the adjustment range explained in these user’s manuals may
shorten the lifetimes of the consumables.
Before turning on the power, make the projector cool down adequately.
After turning the projector off, pushing the restart switch or interrupting of the power supply,
make the projector cool down adequately. Operation in a high temperature state of the
projector causes a damage of the electrode and un-lighting of the lamp.
Avoid strong rays.
Any strong ray (such as direct rays of the sun or room lighting) onto the remote control
sensors could invalidate the remote control.
Avoid radio interference.
Any interfering radiation could cause disordered image or noises.
• Avoid radio generator such as a mobile telephone, transceiver, etc. around the projector.
About displaying characteristic.
The display condition of the projector (such as color, contrast, etc.) depends on
characteristic of the screen, because the projector uses a liquid crystal display panel. The
display condition can differ from the display of CRT.
• Do not use a polarized screen. It can cause red image.
Turn the power on/off in right order.
To prevent any trouble, turn on/off the projector in right order mentioned below unless
specifying.
• Power on the projector before the computer or video tape recorder.
• Power off the projector after the computer or video tape recorder.
Take care not to fatigue your eyes.
Rest the eyes periodically.
Set the sound volume at a suitable level to avoid bothering other people.
• It is better to keep the volume level low and close the windows at night to protect the
neighborhood environment.

Lamp
WARNING
HIGH VOLTAGE
HIGH TEMPERATURE
HIGH PRESSURE
The projector uses a high-pressure mercury glass lamp. The lamp can break with a
loud bang, or burn out, if jolted or scratched, handled while hot, or worn over time.
Note that each lamp has a different lifetime, and some may burst or burn out soon after
you start using them. In addition, when the bulb bursts, it is possible for shards of
glass to fly into the lamp housing, and for gas containing mercury to escape from the
projector’s vent holes.
About disposal of a lamp • This product contains a mercury lamp; do not put in trash.
Dispose of in accord with environmental laws.
For lamp recycling, go to www.lamprecycle.org. (in USA)
For product disposal, contact your local government agency or www.eiae.org (in the US)
or www.epsc.ca (in Canada).
For more information, call your dealer.
Disconnect
the plug from
the power
outlet
• If the lamp should break (it will make a loud bang when it does), unplug
the power cord from the outlet, and make sure to request a replacement
lamp from your local dealer. Note that shards of glass could damage the
projector’s internals, or cause injury during handling, so please do not try to
clean the projector or replace the lamp yourself.
• If the lamp should break (it will make a loud bang when it does), ventilate
the room well, and make sure not to breathe the gas that comes out of the
projector vents, or get it in your eyes or mouth.
• Before replacing the lamp, make sure the power switch is off and the
power cable is not plugged in, then wait at least 45 minutes for the lamp to
cool sufficiently. Handling the lamp while hot can cause burns, as well as
damaging the lamp.
• Do not open the lamp cover while the projector is suspended from above.
This is dangerous, since if the lamp’s bulb has broken, the shards will
fall out when the cover is opened. In addition, working in high places is
dangerous, so ask your local dealer to have the lamp replaced even if the
bulb is not broken.
• Do not use the projector with the lamp cover removed. At the lamp
replacing, make sure that the screws are screwed in firmly. Loose screws
could result in damage or injury.
• Use the lamp of the specified type only.
• If the lamp breaks soon after the first time it is used, it is possible that
there are electrical problems elsewhere besides the lamp. If this happens,
contact your local dealer or a service representative.
• Handle with care: jolting or scratching could cause the lamp bulb to burst
during use.
• Using the lamp for long periods of time, could cause it dark, not to light up
or to burst. When the pictures appear dark, or when the color tone is poor,
please replace the lamp as soon as possible. Do not use old (used) lamps;
this is a cause of breakage.

Setting up
Connecting your devices (continued)
NOTE • Be sure to read the manuals for devices before connecting them to
the projector, and make sure that all the devices are suitable to be connected
with this product. Before connecting to a PC, check the signal level, the signal
timing, and the resolution.
- Some signal may need an adapter to input this projector.
- Some PCs have multiple screen display modes that may include some signals
which are not supported by this projector.
- Although the projector can display signals with resolution up to UXGA
(1600X1200), the signal will be converted to the projector’s panel resolution
before being displayed. The best display performance will be achieved if the
resolutions of the input signal and the projector panel are identical.
• While connecting, make sure that the shape of the cable's connector fits the
port to connect with. And be sure to tighten the screws on connectors with
screws.
• When connecting a laptop PC to the projector, be sure to activate the PC’s
external RGB output. (Set the laptop PC to CRT display or to simultaneous
LCD and CRT display.) For details on how this is done, please refer to the
instruction manual of the corresponding laptop PC.
• When the picture resolution is changed on a PC depending on an input,
automatic adjustment function may take some time and may not be completed.
In this case, you may not be able to see a check box to select “Yes/No” for the
new resolution on Windows. Then the resolution will go back to the original.
It might be recommended to use other CRT or LCD monitors to change the
resolution.
• In some cases, this projector may not display a proper picture or display
any picture on screen. For example, automatic adjustment may not function
correctly with some input signals. An input signal of composite sync or sync on
G may confuse this projector, so the projector may not display a proper picture.

Approx.
3m
30º
30º
NOTE • The remote control signal reflected in the screen or the like may be available.
If it is difficult to send the signal to the sensor directly, attempt to make the signal reflect.
• The remote control uses infrared light to send signals to the projector (Class 1
LED), so be sure to use the remote control in an area free from obstacles that
could block the remote control’s signal to the projector.
• The remote control may not work correctly if strong light (such as direct sun
light) or light from an extremely close range (such as from an inverter fluorescent
lamp) shines on the remote sensor of the projector. Adjust the position of
projector avoiding those lights.

Lamp warning
HIGH VOLTAGE

HIGH PRESSURE
WARNING ►The projector uses a high-pressure mercury glass lamp. The lamp
can break with a loud bang, or burn out, if jolted or scratched, handled while hot, or
worn over time. Note that each lamp has a different lifetime, and some may burst or
burn out soon after you start using them. In addition, if the bulb bursts, it is possible
for shards of glass to fly into the lamp housing, and for gas containing mercury and
dust containing fine particles of glass to escape from the projector’s vent holes.
►About disposal of a lamp: This product contains a mercury lamp; do not put
it in a trash. Dispose of it in accordance with environmental laws.
• For lamp recycling, go to www.lamprecycle.org (in the US).
• For product disposal, consult your local government agency or www.eiae.org (in
the US) or www.epsc.ca (in Canada).
For more information, call your dealer.
Disconnect

• If the lamp should break (it will make a loud bang when it does),
unplug the power cord from the outlet, and make sure to request a
replacement lamp from your local dealer. Note that shards of glass
could damage the projector’s internals, or cause injury during handling,
so please do not try to clean the projector or replace the lamp yourself.
• If the lamp should break (it will make a loud bang when it does), ventilate the
room well, and make sure not to inhale the gas or fine particles that come out
from the projector's vent holes, and not to get them into your eyes or mouth.
• Before replacing the lamp, turn the projector off and unplug the power
cord, then wait at least 45 minutes for the lamp to cool sufficiently.
Handling the lamp while hot can cause burns, as well as damaging the lamp.
• Never unscrew except the appointed (marked by an arrow) screws.
• Do not open the lamp cover while the projector is suspended from
a ceiling. This is dangerous, since if the lamp’s bulb has broken, the
shards will fall out when the cover is opened. In addition, working in
high places is dangerous, so ask your local dealer to have the lamp
replaced even if the bulb is not broken.
• Do not use the projector with the lamp cover removed. At the lamp
replacing, make sure that the screws are screwed in firmly. Loose
screws could result in damage or injury.
• Use only the lamp of the specified type. Use of a lamp that does not meet the lamp
specifications for this model could cause a fire, damage or shorten the life of this product.
• If the lamp breaks soon after the first time it is used, it is possible
that there are electrical problems elsewhere besides the lamp. If this
happens, consult your local dealer or a service representative.
• Handle with care: jolting or scratching could cause the lamp bulb to burst during use.
• Using the lamp for long periods of time, could cause it dark, not to light
up or to burst. When the pictures appear dark, or when the color tone is
poor, please replace the lamp as soon as possible. Do not use old (used)
lamps; this is a cause of breakage.

HIGH TEMPERATURE
HIGH PRESSURE
WARNING ►The projector uses a high-pressure mercury glass lamp. The lamp
can break with a loud bang, or burn out, if jolted or scratched, handled while hot, or
worn over time. Note that each lamp has a different lifetime, and some may burst or
burn out soon after you start using them. In addition, if the bulb bursts, it is possible
for shards of glass to fly into the lamp housing, and for gas containing mercury and
dust containing fine particles of glass to escape from the projector’s vent holes.
►About disposal of a lamp: This product contains a mercury lamp; do not put
it in a trash. Dispose of it in accordance with environmental laws.
• For lamp recycling, go to www.lamprecycle.org (in the US).
• For product disposal, consult your local government agency or www.eiae.org
(in the US) or www.epsc.ca (in Canada).
For more information, ask your dealer.
Disconnect
the plug
from the
power
outlet
• If the lamp should break (it will make a loud bang when it does),
unplug the power cord from the outlet, and make sure to request a
replacement lamp from your local dealer. Note that shards of glass
could damage the projector’s internals, or cause injury during handling,
so please do not try to clean the projector or replace the lamp yourself.
• If the lamp should break (it will make a loud bang when it does), ventilate the
room well, and make sure not to inhale the gas or fine particles that come out
from the projector's vent holes, and not to get them into your eyes or mouth.
• Before replacing the lamp, turn the projector off and unplug the power
cord, then wait at least 45 minutes for the lamp to cool sufficiently.
Handling the lamp while hot can cause burns, as well as damaging the lamp.
• Never unscrew except the appointed (marked by an arrow) screws.
• Do not open the lamp cover while the projector is suspended from
a ceiling. This is dangerous, since if the lamp’s bulb has broken, the
shards will fall out when the cover is opened. In addition, working in
high places is dangerous, so ask your local dealer to have the lamp
replaced even if the bulb is not broken.
• Do not use the projector with the lamp cover removed. At the lamp
replacing, make sure that the screws are screwed in firmly. Loose
screws could result in damage or injury.
• Use only the lamp of the specified type. Use of a lamp that does not
meet the lamp specifications for this model could cause a fire, damage or
shorten the life of this product.
• If the lamp breaks soon after the first time it is used, it is possible
that there are electrical problems elsewhere besides the lamp. If this
happens, consult your local dealer or a service representative.
• Handle with care: jolting or scratching could cause the lamp bulb to burst during use.
• Using the lamp for long periods of time, could cause it dark, not to light
up or to burst. When the pictures appear dark, or when the color tone
is poor, please replace the lamp as soon as possible. Do not use old
(used) lamps; this is a cause of breakage.
