Insert the batteries.
Check the positions of the (+) and (–) marks inside the battery
holder to ensure that the batteries are inserted the correct way.
3
Replace the battery cover.
Slide the battery cover in until the tab clicks into place.
The batteries are not already inserted into the remote control at the time the
projector is purchased. You will need to insert the batteries that are
provided with the projector before the remote control can be used.
CAUTION
Be sure to read the Safety Instructions/World-Wide Warranty Terms
before handling the batteries.
PROCEDURE
1
Remove the battery cover.
While pushing down on the rib of the battery cover, slide the
battery cover in the direction of the arrow.
Rib
TIP
If delays in the responsiveness of the remote control occur or if it does
not operate after it has been used for some time, it probably means
that the batteries are becoming flat. If this happens, replace the
batteries with two new AA alkali batteries.

PROCEDURE
1
Set the [R/C] switch of the remote control to "ON".
TIP
2
Point the remote control light-emitting area towards
one of the remote control light-receiving areas on the
projector and operate the remote control buttons.
• Do not allow sunlight or light from fluorescent lamps to shine
directly onto the projector's remote control light-receiving areas,
otherwise it may interfere with the reception of signals from the
remote control.
• When not using the remote control, set the [R/C] switch on the
remote control to "OFF". If you leave the [R/C] switch at "ON", it
will consume battery power.
• If a button on the remote control is pressed down for more than 1
minute while the [R/C] switch is at "ON", the signal for that button
operation will stop being transmitted (the remote control will change
to sleep mode). The purpose of this is to prevent the batteries from
being consumed due to something being placed on top of the remote
control.
When the button is released, normal remote control operation will
resume.

Tilting the projector vertically with respect to the screen
If the images are being projected onto a screen that is higher than the
position of the projector, extend the front adjustable foot to tilt the
projector.
p.44
Tilting the projector may cause a keystone distortion to the image, but the
automatic keystone correction function will automatically corrects the
image distortion.
p.46
CAUTION
The maximum downward tilt angle is when the rear adjustable foot is
extended to its limit. Do not tilt the projector downward any further
than extending the foot.
When projecting from the side of the screen
If the projector cannot be set up directly in front of the screen, you can
project images at a horizontal angle to the screen. If keystone distortion
appears in the images, you can use the projector's "H-Keystone" and
"Quick Corner" functions to correct this keystone distortion.

Manually Correcting Keystone Distortion
This projector is equipped with an automatic keystone correction function
that detects the vertical angle of the projector during projection and
automatically corrects vertical keystone distortion. If you would like to
make further fine adjustments after automatic keystone correction has been
carried out, or if the projector is tilted horizontally, you can carry out
keystone correction manually.
TIP
Keystone correction is carried out automatically within a range of
approximately 30º up or down. Manual keystone correction can be
carried out within a range of approximately 40º up or down or 20º to
the left or right.
However, the applicable angles will become smaller under the
following conditions.
• If the projector has been tilted both horizontally and vertically
• If an optional projection lens has been fitted
• When the zoom is set to "W"
This projector is equipped with the following two keystone correction
functions. Use whichever function is appropriate for the keystone
distortion that appears.
• Auto Keystone/H/V-Keystone
Automatic keystone automatically corrects keystone distortion when the
projected images are vertically distorted.
H/V-Keystone can be used to make fine adjustments to the results of
automatic keystone correction and to correct horizontal keystone
distortion.
The keystone correction function lets you easily correct keystone
distortion that has occurred after moving the projector, simply by using
buttons on the projector's control panel.
See "Automatic keystone correction"

Adjusting the Screen Image
TIP
• The "Auto Keystone", "H/V-Keystone" and "Quick Corner"
functions cannot both be used together to correct keystone distortion.
If you use one function to correct keystone distortion, any correction
that has been applied using the other function will be cancelled.
• The larger the angle of tilt, the poorer the focus of the contours in
the projected images will become.
• If a large amount of keystone correction is applied, fine details such
as text characters and lines may go out of focus.
• Keystone corrections that have been applied using the keystone
correction functions are memorised even when the projector's power
is turned off. If you have changed the projection position or angle,
you will need to repeat the correction procedure.
• "H-Keystone" and "Height" cannot be used at the same time.
• When keystone correction is carried out, the projected images will
become smaller. Use the zoom function to adjust the size of the
images if necessary.
p.42
• If the text part of the image is blurred after keystone correction is
carried out, decrease the sharpness setting.
p.78, p.81
Automatic keystone correction
When the projector has been tilted vertically, automatic keystone
correction is carried out so that images with no distortion are projected.
Automatic keystone correction is carried out approximately one second
after the projector is set up and projection starts. A vertical keystone
correction gauge appears on the screen while automatic adjustment is in
progress.
TIP
• Automatic keystone correction is not carried out if "Rear Proj." or
"Ceiling" in the "Advanced1" menu is set to "ON", or if the
projection area has been corrected manually using the "Quick
Corner" function.
• If you would like to make further fine adjustments after automatic
keystone correction has been carried out, or if the projector is tilted
horizontally, you can carry out keystone correction manually.
p.47
• If you do not want automatic keystone correction to be carried out,
change the "Auto Keystone" setting in the "H/V-Keystone" submenu of the "Keystone" command in the "Setting" menu to "OFF".

Adjusting the Image Quality
The quality of the projected images can be adjusted as follows.
Projecting Easy-to-see Images Without a Screen
(Wall Shot)
When the Wall Shot function is used, images can be projected without loss
of original colour even onto surfaces such as blackboards and coloured
wall surfaces which are being used instead of a screen. For example, if
projecting onto a green blackboard, the projected images would normally
appear greenish and be very difficult to see. The Wall Shot function uses a
sensor to measure the condition of the projection surface and automatically
adjusts the colour of the projected images based on these measurements.
The Wall Shot function also allows shading to be adjusted. If projecting
onto a screen that is located near a window, the Wall Shot function can be
used to obtain clear images when they might otherwise appear faded.
TIP
Wall Shot can be used for adjustment if the projection distance is
within approximately 80–1000 cm (2.6–32.8 ft.). However, this
distance will vary depending on the condition of the projected surface,
for instance if the projection surface is an extremely reflective surface
such as a whiteboard, or if it is a highly non-reflective surface such as
a dark wall.
51
PROCEDURE
The Wall Shot function can be operated using either the remote control or
the projector's control panel.

Monitoring and Controlling Projectors via a Network (for the EMP-7900)
You can monitor the status of the projector and control operations such as
turning the power on and off from a computer via a network.
TIP
The network functions differ for the EMP-7950 and the EMP-7900.
The following descriptions apply to the EMP-7900. If using the EMP7950, refer to the EasyMP Network Setup Guide and the EasyMP
Operation Guide.
Available Network Functions for the EMP-7900
The EMP-7900 is compatible with SNMPg.
In addition, you can use the software that is included with the projector for
centralised control of projectors and to receive notifications of problems
via e-mail.
Monitoring Function Using SNMP and the SNMP Manager
Program
You can use SNMP to monitor and control the status of the projector from
a computer.
The management functions that are available when using SNMP require
SNMP manager program to be installed on the computer. Because of this,
management using SNMP should always be carried out by somebody who
is familiar with computer networks such as a network administrator.
Monitoring and Control Functions Using the Accessory
Software
The Projector Software CD-ROM supplied with the projector contains the
following two software programs. These programs can be used to carry out
the following network monitoring and control tasks.
98
• EMP Monitor
This software is used to monitor the status of multiple projectors that are
connected to a network by means of a list on the computer screen, and to
control the projectors all at once by carrying out operations such as
turning the power for the projectors on or off. It allows multiple
projectors on a network to be monitored and controlled by a single
operator.
• EMP NetworkManager
This program lets you make network settings for projectors from
configuration menus using a remote control. However, you can use the
keyboard of a computer for direct address entry when using EMP
NetworkManager, so that network settings can be carried out easily. In
addition, EMP NetworkManager can be used to make settings for the
mail notification function, so that notifications of problems with projector
operation can be sent via e-mail to preset e-mail addresses when such
problems occur.
Carry out the following operations in the order listed in order to set up
monitoring and control of projectors via a network.
1. Use the Projector Software CD-ROM to install the software to be
used into the computer.
p.99
2. Connect the projector to the network using the a network cable.
p.101
3. Use the projector's configuration menus to make the required
network settings.

Maintenance
This section describes maintenance tasks such as cleaning the projector and
replacing consumable parts.
Cleaning
You should clean the projector if it becomes dirty or if the quality of
projected images starts to deteriorate.
CAUTION
Be sure to read the separate Safety Instructions/World-Wide Warranty
Terms before cleaning.
Cleaning the Projector Case
Clean the projector case by wiping it gently with a soft cloth.
If the projector is particularly dirty, moisten the cloth with water
containing a small amount of neutral detergent, and then firmly wring the
cloth dry before using it to wipe the projector case. Then wipe the case
again with a soft, dry cloth.
CAUTION
Do not use volatile substances such as wax, alcohol or thinner to
clean the projector case. These can cause the case to warp and make
the coating finish peel off.
Cleaning the Lens
Use a commercially-available air blower, or use lens cleaning paper to
clean the lens.
CAUTION
Do not rub the lens with harsh materials or subject the lens to shocks,
as it can easily become damaged.
140
Cleaning the Air Filters and Air Intake Vent
If dust collects on the air filter or the air outlet, it can cause the internal
temperature of the projector to rise, and this can lead to problems with
operation and shortening of the optical engine's service life.
It is recommended that you clean these parts at least once every three
months. Clean them more often than this if using the projector in
particularly dusty environments.
• Air intake vents in rear, side and base of projector
Turn the projector upside-down and
use a vacuum cleaner to clean the air
intake vent.
User’s Guide
141
Maintenance
• Air filters at side and base of projector
Pull the air filters out from the projector and then use a vacuum cleaner to
clean them.
Replacing Consumables
This section describes how to replace the lamp and the air filters.
Lamp Replacement Period
It is time to replace the lamp when:
• The message "Lamp Replace." appears on the screen when
projection starts
.
A message will be displayed.
TIP
• If the air filters are broken or if the warning message reappears after
they have been cleaned, they should be replaced. Replace them with
new air filters. See "Appendices: Optional Accessories and
Consumables"
p.151
• Spare lamps are provided with spare air filters. The air filters should
also be replaced when the lamp is replaced.
• The
indicator is flashing orange
Flashes orange
• The projected images get darker or start to deteriorate in quality.
User’s Guide
142
Maintenance
TIP
• The lamp replacement message is set to appear after the following
periods of time in order to maintain the initial brightness and quality
of the projected images.
·When used continuously at high luminance: Approx. 1900 hours
·When used continuously at low luminance: Approx. 2900 hours
"Brightness Control"
p.92
If you continue to use the lamp after this period, the possibility of the
lamp breaking becomes greater. When the lamp replacement
message appears, replace the lamp with a new one as soon as
possible, even if it is still working.
• Depending on the characteristics of the lamp and on the way it has
been used, the lamp may become darker or stop working before the
lamp warning message appears. You should always have a spare
lamp ready in case it is needed.
• Contact your dealer for a spare lamp.
Replacing the Lamp
CAUTION
• If you are replacing the lamp because it has stopped working, it is
possible that the lamp is broken.
If replacing the lamp of a projector which has been installed on the
ceiling, you should always assume that the lamp is broken and
handle it with extreme care during removal. Furthermore, you
should stand to the side of the projector, not underneath it.
• Wait until the lamp has cooled down sufficiently before removing the
lamp cover. It takes a further one hour after the cool-downgperiod
has finished for the lamp to be cool enough.
PROCEDURE
1
Turn the projector's power off, wait for the cool-down
period to end, and then disconnect the power cable.
The cool-down period lasts for about 20 seconds.

also be replaced when the lamp is replaced.
p.146
• The lamp contains mercury. Dispose of used lamps properly in
accordance with your local regulations.
Resetting the Lamp Operating Time
The projector has a built-in counter which keeps track of the lamp
operating time, so that when the cumulative operating time reaches a
certain point, it causes the replacement warning message to be displayed.
Therefore, the counter needs to be reset using the configuration menu after
the lamp has been replaced with a new one.
TIP
Do not reset the lamp operating time except after the lamp has been
replaced. If the lamp operating time is reset at any other time, the
lamp replacement period will not be indicated correctly.

The ratio between an image's length and its height. HDTV images have an aspect ratio of 16:9 and appear elongated. The
aspect ratio for standard images is 4:3.
This is a server that centrally manages user authentication. By using an authentication server, management of user information
and user authentication tasks can be centralised. In addition, many authentication servers use high-level authentication
methods and so they also tend to be highly secure.
Abbreviation for Cisco Compatible Extensions. This is a security technology for wireless LANs developed by Cisco Systems,
Inc. It uses RADIUS serverg for authentication. Several authentication methods are available for CCX, and this projector uses
LEAPg authentication.
Communication speeds will drop if there are too many devices performing wireless communication using the same frequency.
In this case, it is possible to avoid interference from other wireless LANs by setting a wireless channel for each wireless LAN
network.
The temperature of an object which is emitting light. If the colour temperature is high, the colours tend to take on a bluish
tinge. If the colour temperature is lower, the colours tend to take on a reddish tinge.
Video signals which have the video brightness signals and colour signals separated, in order to provide better image quality. In
high-definition TV (HDTV), it refers to images which consist of three independent signals: Y (luminance signal), and Pb and
Pr (colour difference signals).
Video signals which have the video brightness signals and colour signals mixed together. The type of signals commonly used
by household video equipment (NTSC, PAL and SECAM formats).
The carrier signal Y (luminance signal) and chroma (colour) signal which are contained in the colour bar are overlapped to
form a single signal.
The relative brightness of the light and dark areas of an image can be increased or decreased in order to make text and
graphics stand out more clearly, or to make them appear softer. Adjusting this particular property of an image is called
"contrast adjustment".
This is the process by which the projector's lamp is cooled down after it has become hot through use. It is carried out
automatically when the [Power] button on either the remote control or the projector's control panel has been pressed to turn
the projector off. Do not disconnect the power cord while cool-down is in progress, otherwise the cool-down process will not
work properly. If the cool-down period is not allowed to finish normally, the projector's lamp and internal components will
remain at high temperatures, and this may shorten the operating life of the lamp or cause problems with the operation of the
projector.
