Safety instructions
Read all of these instructions before you operate your projector and save for future
reference.
1. Read instructions
All the safety and operating instructions should be read before the appliance is
operated.
2. Notes and warnings
All notes and warnings in the operating instructions should be adhered to.
3. Cleaning
Unplug the projector from the wall socket before cleaning. Use a damp cloth for
cleaning the projector housing. Do not use liquid or aerosol cleaners.
4. Accessories
Do not place this product on an unstable cart, stand, or table. The product may fall,
causing serious damage to the product.
Keep the plastic packing materials (from the projector, accessories and optional
parts) out of the reach of children as these bags may result in death by suffocation.
Be particularly careful around the small children.
5. Ventilation
The projector is equipped with ventilation holes (intake) and ventilation holes
(exhaust).
Do not block or place anything near these slots, or internal heat build-up may
occur, causing picture degradation or damage to the projector.
6. Power sources
Check that the operating voltage of your unit is identical with the voltage of your
local power supply.
7. Servicing
Do not attempt to service this projector yourself. Refer all servicing to qualified
service personnel.
8. Replacement parts
When replacement parts are required, be sure that the replacement parts are
specified by the manufacture. Unauthorized substitutions may result in fire, electric
shock or other hazards.
9. Moisture Condensation
Never operate this projector immediately after moving it from a cold location to a
warm one. When the projector is exposed to such a change in temperature,
moisture may condense on the lens and the crucial internal parts. To prevent the
unit from possible damage, do not use the projector for at least 2 hours when there
is an extreme or sudden change in temperature.
EN-3
Notes on the AC power cord
AC Power Cord must meet the requirement of countries where you use this projector.
Please confirm your AC plug type with the graphics below and ensure that the proper
AC Power Cord is used. If the supplied AC Power Cord does not match your AC
outlet, please contact your sales dealer. This projector is equipped with a grounding
type AC line plug. Please ensure that your outlet fits the plug. Do not defeat the safety
purpose of this grounding type plug. We highly recommend using a video source
device also equipped with a grounding type AC line plug to prevent signal interference
due to voltage fluctuations.

EN-11
Connecting a computer
The projector provides a VGA input socket that allows you to connect it to both IBM®
compatibles and Macintosh® computers. A Mac adapter is needed if you are
connecting legacy version Macintosh computers.
To connect the projector to a notebook or desktop computer:
• Using a VGA cable
1. Take the supplied multi-input cable and connect one end to the D-Sub output
socket of the computer.
2. Connect the other end of the multi-input cable to the multi-input socket on the
projector.
Important
•
EN-12
Many notebooks do not turn on their external video ports when connected to a
projector. Usually a key combo like FN + F8 or CRT/LCD key turns the external display
on/off. Locate a function key labeled CRT/LCD or a function key with a monitor symbol
on the notebook. Press FN and the labeled function key simultaneously. Refer to your
notebook's documentation to find your notebook's key combination.
Connecting a composite video source device
Examine your video source device to determine if it has a set of unused composite
video output sockets available:
• If so, you can continue with this procedure.
• If not, you will need to reassess which method you can use to connect to the device.
To connect the projector to a composite video source device:
1. Take a video cable and connect one end to the composite video output socket of
the video source device.
2. Connect the other end to the video input socket to the multi-input cable.
