About Remote Commander operation
• Direct the Remote Commander toward the
remote control detector.
• The shorter the distance between the
Remote Commander and the projector is,
the wider the angle within which the
Remote Commander can control the
projector becomes.
• Make sure that nothing obstructs the
infrared beam between the Remote
Commander and the remote control
detector on the projector.
B Preparation
Connecting the Projector
Notes
• Make sure all the equipment is powered off when connecting the projector.
• Use the proper cables for each connection.
• Insert the cable plugs firmly; Loose connections may reduce performance of picture signals or
cause a malfunction. When pulling out a cable, be sure to grip it by the plug, not the cable itself.
• For more information, refer also to the instruction manuals of the equipment you are connecting.
• Use a no-resistance audio cable.

Replacing the Lamp
Replace the lamp with a new one if a message displayed on the projected image or the LAMP/
COVER indicator notifies you to replace the lamp (pages 30, 31).
Use an LMP-E211 projector lamp (not supplied) for replacement.
Caution
• The lamp remains hot after the projector is
turned off. If you touch the lamp, you may
burn your finger. When you replace the
lamp, wait for at least an hour after
turning off the projector for the lamp to
cool sufficiently.
• Do not allow any metallic or inflammable
objects into the lamp replacement slot after
removing the lamp, otherwise it may cause
electrical shock or fire. Do not put your
hands into the slot.
1
Turn off the projector, and disconnect
the AC power cord from a wall outlet.
2
When the lamp has cooled
sufficiently, open the lamp cover by
loosening 1 screw.
3
Loosen the 2 screws on the lamp then
pull out the lamp by its grab.
• If the lamp breaks, contact qualified
Sony personnel. Do not replace the lamp
yourself.
• When removing the lamp, be sure to pull it
out straight, by holding the designated
location. If you touch a part of the lamp other
than the designated location, you may be
burned or injured. If you pull out the lamp
while the projector is tilted, the pieces may
scatter if the lamp breaks any may cause
injury.

The following describes the projection distance and height from lens center to bottom of screen
by each projected screen size.
The projection distance is the distance between the front of the lens and the surface of the
projected image.
Height H is the height from the bottom of the projected image (top for ceiling mount) to A
(determined by drawing a perpendicular line from lens center to projected image surface).
