For example, here are the measurements for three
installations:
Projector Placement Guidelines
To get the best results when projecting your images, position
the projector at the proper height and distance relative to the
screen. When projecting from a table or desk, place the
projector so the lens is aligned as closely as possible with the
bottom of your screen:

100 inches
(254 cm)
163 inches (4.2 m)
213 inches (5.4 m)
*
For an image size of 300 inches, the projector may be up to 53.7 feet
away from the screen, depending on the setting of the zoom ring.
Using the Remote Control
The remote control uses a line-of-sight infrared signal. To use
the remote control, point it toward the infrared receiver
located at the front of the projector.
When projecting from the ceiling, align the lens as closely as
possible with the top of your screen:
To be able to use the remote control as a cordless mouse,
connect the projector to your computer with the mouse cable
(PS/2 or ADB-Macintosh) that came with the projector.
You can use the remote control up to about 32.8 feet
(10 meters) from the projector. (This distance may be shorter
if the remote control batteries are low.) You must also hold the
remote control so that it is within ± 30° left or right of, and
± 15° higher or lower than, the infrared receiver.
The distance between the projector and the screen determines
the actual image size. To determine the exact distance required
for a particular image size (or to determine the size of an image
at a particular distance), use the following formulas.
(Remember that the size of the image can be changed by
rotating the zoom ring.)

button
To determine the minimum and maximum diagonal size of an
image when you know the projection distance:
❏ Inches:
Maximum image size = (0.6038 × projection distance) + 1.8898
Minimum image size = (0.4631 × projection distance) + 1.4000

❏ Centimeters:
Maximum image size = (0.6038 × projection distance) + 4.8001
Minimum image size = (0.4631 × projection distance) + 3.5560
To determine the projection distance when you know the
diagonal size of the screen image:
Note: If the projector doesn’t respond to remote control
commands, a strong light source (such as direct sunlight) may be
hitting the infrared receiver. The presence of a certain type of
fluorescent light or equipment emitting infrared energy (such as a
radiant room heater) can also interfere with the transmission of
remote commands.
❏ Inches:
Maximum projection distance = (2.1593 × image size) – 3.0229
Minimum projection distance = (1.6562 × image size) – 3.1291
❏ Centimeters:
Maximum projection distance = (2.1593 × image size) – 7.6782
Minimum projection distance = (1.6562 × image size) – 4.2068

Replacing the Lamp
The projector lamp typically lasts for about 2000 hours of use.
It is time to replace the lamp when:
❏ The projected image gets darker or starts to deteriorate
❏ The projector lamp light is flashing orange and red
alternately
❏ The message LAMP REPLACE appears on the screen when
the projector lamp comes on
Cleaning the Air Filter
Warning: Let the lamp cool before replacing it. Also, don’t touch
the glass portion of the lamp assembly; this can cause premature
lamp failure.
Clean the air filter at the bottom of the projector after every
100 hours of use. If it is not cleaned periodically, it can
become clogged with dust, preventing proper ventilation. This
can cause overheating and damage the projector. To clean the
air filter, follow these steps:
1. Turn off the projector and unplug the power cord from the
electrical outlet and the projector. Wait at least 20 minutes
for the bulb to cool.
2. Place the projector on its side with the handle on the top so
you can easily access the lamp cover.
1. Turn off the projector and unplug the power cable from the
electrical outlet.
Note: Placing the projector in this position keeps dust from
getting inside the projector housing.
2. Place the projector on its side with the handle at the top so
that the filter is easily accessible.
3. Use a screwdriver, coin, or similar object to loosen the
retaining screw on the lamp cover. When the screw is loose,
lift off the lamp cover. (You cannot remove this screw from
the cover.)
Note: Placing the projector in this position keeps dust from
getting inside the projector housing.
3. Lift up the tab securing the air filter cover and remove the
cover. (The air filter is attached to the inside of the cover.)
