NOTE:
• The [ECO MODE] can be changed by using the menu.
Select [SETUP] → [GENERAL] → [ECO MODE].
• The lamp life remaining and lamp hours used can be checked in [USAGE TIME]. Select [INFO.] →[USAGE TIME].
• The projector is always in [NORMAL] for 90 seconds after the lamp is turned on. The lamp condition will not be affected even when
[ECO MODE] is changed.
• After a lapse of 1 minute from when the projector displays no-signal guidance, a blue, black or logo screen, [ECO MODE] will automatically
switch to [ECO]. The projector will return to its original setting once a signal is accepted.
• If the projector is overheated in [OFF] mode, there may be a case where the [ECO MODE] automatically changes to [NORMAL] mode to
protect the projector. When the projector is in [NORMAL] mode, the picture brightness decreases. When the projector comes back to normal
temperature, the [ECO MODE] returns to its original setting.
Thermometer symbol [ ] indicates the [ECO MODE] is automatically set to [NORMAL] mode because the internal temperature is too high.
• Immediately after [ECO MODE] is changed from [ECO] to one of [OFF], [AUTO ECO], or [NORMAL], the lamp brightness may decrease
temporarily. This is not a malfunction.
Checking Energy-Saving Effect [CARBON METER]
This feature will show energy-saving effect in terms of CO2 emission reduction (kg) when the projector’s [ECO MODE]
is set to [AUTO ECO], [NORMAL], or [ECO]. This feature is called as [CARBON METER].
There are two messages: [TOTAL CARBON SAVINGS] and [CARBON SAVINGS-SESSION]. The [TOTAL CARBON
SAVINGS] message shows the total amount of CO2 emission reduction from the time of shipment up to now. You
can check the information on [USAGE TIME] from [INFO.] of the menu. (→ page 80)
The [CARBON SAVINGS-SESSION] message shows the amount of CO2 emission reduction between the time of
changing to ECO MODE immediately after the time of power-on and the time of power-off. The [CARBON SAVINGSSESSION] message will be displayed in the [POWER OFF/ ARE YOU SURE?] message at the time of power-off.
TIP:
• The formula as shown below is used to calculate the amount of CO2 emission reduction.
Amount of CO2 emission reduction = (Power consumption in OFF for ECO MODE − Power consumption in AUTO ECO/NORMAL/ECO for
ECO MODE) × CO2 conversion factor.* When the image is turned off with the AV-MUTE button, the amount of CO2 emmission reduction
will also increase.
* Calculation for amount of CO2 emission reduction is based on an OECD publication “CO2 Emissions from Fuel Combustion, 2008 Edition”.
• The [TOTAL CARBON SAVINGS] is calculated based on savings recorded in 15 minutes intervals.
• This formula will not apply to the power consumption which is not affected by whether [ECO MODE] is turned on or off.

18"/45.7 cm, to the right approximately 18"/45.7 cm.
* Figures differ by several % because the calculation is approximate.
WARNING
* Installing your projector on the ceiling must be done by a qualified technician. Contact your NEC dealer for more
information.
* Do not attempt to install the projector yourself.
• Only use your projector on a solid, level surface. If the projector falls to the ground, you can be injured and the
projector severely damaged.
• Do not use the projector where temperatures vary greatly. The projector must be used at temperatures between
41°F (5°C) and 104°F (40°C) (Eco mode selected automatically at 95°F to 104°F/35°C to 40°C).
• Do not expose the projector to moisture, dust, or smoke. This will harm the screen image.
• Ensure that you have adequate ventilation around your projector so heat can dissipate. Do not cover the vents on
the side or the front of the projector.
Reflecting the Image
Using a mirror to reflect your projector’s image enables you to enjoy a much larger image when a smaller space is
required. Contact your NEC dealer if you need a mirror system. If you’re using a mirror system and your image is
inverted, use the MENU and ▲▼◀▶ buttons on your projector cabinet or your remote control to correct the orientation. (→ page 69)

6. Installation and Connections
NOTE: The projector is not compatible with video decoded outputs of the NEC ISS-6020 switcher.
NOTE: An image may not be displayed correctly when a Video source is played back via a commercially available scan converter.
This is because the projector will process a video signal as a computer signal at the default setting. In that case, do the following.
* When an image is displayed with the lower and upper black portion of the screen or a dark image is not displayed correctly:
Project an image to fill the screen and then press the AUTO ADJ. button on the remote control or the projector cabinet.
Enabling the computer’s external display
Displaying an image on the notebook PC’s screen does not necessarily mean it outputs a signal to the projector.
When using a PC compatible laptop, a combination of function keys will enable/disable the external display.
Usually, the combination of the “Fn” key along with one of the 12 function keys gets the external display to come on or off. For example, NEC
laptops use Fn + F3, while Dell laptops use Fn + F8 key combinations to toggle through external display selections.
Cautions when using a DVI signal
• When the computer has a DVI output terminal, use a commercially available converter cable to connect the computer to the projector’s HDMI 1 or HDMI 2 input terminal (only digital video signals can be input).
HDMI 1 IN
HDMI 2 IN
AUDIO IN
NOTE: When Viewing a DVI Digital Signal
• Turn off the power of the computer and projector before connecting.
• When a video deck is connected via a scan converter, etc., the display may not be correct during fast-forwarding and rewinding.
• Use a DVI-to-HDMI cable compliant with DDWG (Digital Display Working Group) DVI (Digital Visual Interface) revision 1.0 standard.
The cable should be within 197"/5 m long.
• Turn off the projector and the PC before connecting the DVI-to-HDMI cable.
• To project a DVI digital signal: Connect the cables, turn the projector on, then select the HDMI input. Finally, turn on your PC.
Failure to do so may not activate the digital output of the graphics card resulting in no picture being displayed. Should this happen, restart
your PC.
• Do not disconnect the DVI-to-HDMI cable while the projector is running. If the signal cable has been disconnected and then reconnected,
an image may not be correctly displayed. Should this happen, restart your PC.
• The COMPUTER video input terminals support Windows Plug and Play.
• A Mac signal adapter (commercially available) may be required to connect a Mac computer.

8. Appendix
If there is no picture, or the picture is not displayed correctly.
•
Power on process for the projector and the PC.
Be sure to connect the projector and notebook PC while the projector is in standby mode and before turning on
the power to the notebook PC.
In most cases the output signal from the notebook PC is not turned on unless connected to the projector before
being powered up.
•
NOTE: You can check the horizontal frequency of the current signal in the projector’s menu under Information. If it reads “0kHz”, this
means there is no signal being output from the computer. (→ page 81 or go to next step)
Enabling the computer’s external display.
Displaying an image on the notebook PC’s screen does not necessarily mean it outputs a signal to the projector.
When using a PC compatible laptop, a combination of function keys will enable/disable the external display. Usually, the combination of the “Fn” key along with one of the 12 function keys gets the external display to come on
or off. For example, NEC laptops use Fn + F3, while Dell laptops use Fn + F8 key combinations to toggle through
external display selections.
•
Non-standard signal output from the computer
If the output signal from a notebook PC is not an industry standard, the projected image may not be displayed
correctly. Should this happen, deactivate the notebook PC’s LCD screen when the projector display is in use.
Each notebook PC has a different way of deactivate/reactivate the local LCD screens as described in the previous step. Refer to your computer’s documentation for detailed information.
•
Image displayed is incorrect when using a Mac
When using a Mac with the projector, set the DIPswitch of the Mac adapter (not supplied with the projector) according to your resolution. After setting, restart your Mac for the changes to take affect.
For setting display modes other than those supported by your Mac and the projector, changing the DIP switch
on a Mac adapter may bounce an image slightly or may display nothing. Should this happen, set the DIP switch
to the 13" fixed mode and then restart your Mac. After that, restore the DIP switches to a displayable mode and
then restart the Mac again.
•
NOTE: A Video Adapter cable manufactured by Apple Inc. is needed for a MacBook which does not have a mini D-Sub 15-pin terminal.
Mirroring on a MacBook
* When using the projector with a MacBook, output may not be set to 1024 × 768 unless “mirroring” is off on
your MacBook. Refer to owner’s manual supplied with your Mac computer for mirroring.
•
Folders or icons are hidden on the Mac screen
Folders or icons may not be seen on the screen. Should this happen, select [View] → [Arrange] from the Apple
menu and arrange icons.

What is HDCP/HDCP technology?
HDCP is an acronym for High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection. High bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) is a
system for preventing illegal copying of video data sent over a High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI).
If you are unable to view material via the HDMI input, this does not necessarily mean the projector is not functioning properly.
With the implementation of HDCP, there may be cases in which certain content is protected with HDCP and might not be displayed due to the decision/intention of the HDCP community (Digital Content Protection, LLC).
