Important Safeguards
CAUTION
These safety instructions are to ensure the long life of
your projector and to prevent fire and shock. Please
read them carefully and heed all warnings.
Do not unplug the power cable from the wall outlet under any
one of the following circumstances. Doing so can cause damage
to the projector:
Installation
* While the Hour Glass icon appears.
* While the message "Please wait a moment." appears. This
message will be displayed after the projector is turned off.
* Immediately after the power cable is plugged into the wall
outlet (the POWER indicator has not changed to a steady orange glow).
* Immediately after the cooling fan stops working (The cooling fan continues to work for 90 seconds after the projector is
turned off with the POWER button).
* While the POWER and the STATUS indicators are alternately
flashing.
1. For best results, use your projector in a darkened room.
2. Place the projector on a flat, level surface in a dry area
away from dust and moisture.
3. Do not place your projector in direct sunlight, near heaters
or heat radiating appliances.
4. Exposure to direct sunlight, smoke or steam can harm internal components.
5. Handle your projector carefully. Dropping or jarring can damage internal components.
6. Do not place heavy objects on top of the projector.
7. If you wish to have the projector installed on the ceiling:
a. Do not attempt to install the projector yourself.
b. The projector must be installed by qualified technicians
in order to ensure proper operation and reduce the risk
of bodily injury.
c. In addition, the ceiling must be strong enough to support the projector and the installation must be in accordance with any local building codes.
d. Please consult your dealer for more information.
Power Supply
1. The projector is designed to operate on a power supply of
100-120 or 200-240 V 50/60 Hz AC. Ensure that your power
supply fits this requirement before attempting to use your
projector.
2. Handle the power cable carefully and avoid excessive bending. A damaged cord can cause electric shock or fire.
3. If the projector is not to be used for an extended period of
time, disconnect the plug from the power outlet.
E–3
Cleaning
1. Unplug the projector before cleaning.
2. Clean the cabinet periodically with a damp cloth. If heavily
soiled, use a mild detergent. Never use strong detergents
or solvents such as alcohol or thinner.
3. Use a blower or lens paper to clean the lens, and be careful not to scratch or mar the lens.
Lamp Replacement
•
To replace the lamp, follow all instructions provided on page
E-49.
•
Be sure to replace the lamp when the message "The lamp
has reached the end of its usable life. Please replace
the lamp.!!" appears. If you continue to use the lamp after
the lamp has reached the end of its usable life, the lamp
bulb may shatter, and pieces of glass may be scattered in
the lamp case. Do not touch them as the pieces of glass
may cause injury. If this happens, contact your NEC dealer
for lamp replacement.
•
Allow a minimum of 90 seconds to elapse after turning off
the projector. Then disconnect the power cable and allow
60 minutes to cool the projector before replacing the lamp.
Fire and Shock Precautions
1. Ensure that there is sufficient ventilation and that vents are
unobstructed to prevent the build-up of heat inside your
projector. Allow at least 3 inches (10 cm) of space between
your projector and a wall.
2. Prevent foreign objects such as paper clips and bits of paper from falling into your projector. Do not attempt to retrieve any objects that might fall into your projector. Do not
insert any metal objects such as a wire or screwdriver into
your projector. If something should fall into your projector,
disconnect it immediately and have the object removed by
a qualified NEC service personnel.
3. Do not place any liquids on top of your projector.
•
Do not look into the lens while the projector is on. Serious
damage to your eyes could result.
•
Keep any items such as magnifying glass out of the light
path of the projector. The light being projected from the
lens is extensive, therefore any kind of abnormal objects
that can redirect light coming out of the lens, can cause
unpredictable outcome such as fire or injury to the eyes.
•
Do not cover the lens with the supplied lens cap or equivalent while the projector is on. Doing so can lead to melting
of the cap and possibly burning your hands due to the heat
emitted from the light output.
•
Do not look into the laser pointer while it is on and do not
point the laser beam at another person.Serious injury could
result.

Congratulations on Your Purchase of The LT150Z Projector
The LT150Z is one of the very best projectors available today. The
LT150Z enables you to project precise images up to 200 inches across
(measured diagonally) from your PC or Macintosh computer (desktop or notebook), VCR, DVD player, document camera, a laser disc
player or PC Card Viewer.
You can use the projector on a tabletop or cart, you can use the projector to project images from behind the screen, and the projector
can be permanently mounted on a ceiling*1. The remote control can
be used wirelessly.
*1 Do not attempt to mount the projector on a ceiling yourself.
The projector must be installed by qualified technicians in order
to ensure proper operation and reduce the risk of bodily injury.
In addition, the ceiling must be strong enough to support the
projector and the installation must be in accordance with any
local building codes. Please consult your dealer for more information.
*2 An UXGA (16001200) and SXGA image (12801024) are
displayed with NEC Technologies Advanced AccuBlend.
*3 The PC Control Utility 1.0 is required. This program is included
on the supplied CD-ROM.
*4 The USB terminal meets the USB1.1 specification and accepts
a USB mouse only.
Getting Started
Features you’ll enjoy:
• Simple set up and operation.
• A high-performance 135 watt NSH lamp.
• The supplied wireless remote control that operates the projector from the front or rear.
• The image can be projected between 30 and 200 inches (measured diagonally).
• Keystone correction allows you to correct trapezoidal distortion so that the image is square.
• You can choose between video modes depending on your source:
"normal" for a typical picture, "natural" for true color reproduction.
• The built-in PC Card Viewer allows you to start your presentation even when a PC is not available at the site.
• The "Capture" enables you to capture the current projected image.
• An image can be projected from in front or behind a screen,
and the projector can even be installed on the ceiling.
• NEC Technologies’ exclusive Advanced AccuBlend intelligent
pixel blending technology - an extremely accurate image compression technology - offers a crisp image with UXGA (1600
1200) resolution*2.
• Supports most IBM VGA, SVGA, XGA , SXGA/UXGA(with
Advanced AccuBlend)*2, Macintosh, component signal (YCbCr
/ YPbPr) or any other RGB signals within a horizontal frequency
range of 15 to 100 kHz and a vertical frequency range of 50 to
120 Hz. This includes NTSC, PAL, PAL-N, PAL-M, PAL60,
SECAM and NTSC4.43 standard video signals.
The fastest way to get started is to take your time and do everything
right the first time. Take a few minutes now to review the user’s
manual. This may save you time later on. At the beginning of each
section of the manual you’ll find an overview. If the section doesn’t
apply, you can skip it.
NOTE: Composite video standards are as follows:
NTSC: U.S. TV standard for video in U.S. and Canada.
PAL: TV standard used in Western Europe.
PAL-N: TV standard used in Argentine, Paraguay and Uruguay.
PAL-M: TV standard used in Brazil.
PAL60: TV standard used for NTSC playback on PAL TVs.
SECAM: TV standard used in France and Eastern Europe.
NTSC4.43: TV standard used in Middle East countries.
• The supplied remote control can be used without a cable, and
you can even use the remote control and mouse adapter to operate your PC or Macintosh mouse wirelessly from across the
room with the built-in remote mouse receiver.
• You can control the projector with a PC using the PC Control
port*3.
• USB terminal allows USB mouse operation *4.
• The contemporary cabinet design is light, compact, easy to carry,
and complements any office, boardroom or auditorium.
• Eight pointers are available for your presentation.

2. INSTALLATION
This section describes how to set up your LT150Z projector and how to connect video and audio sources.
Setting up Your Projector
Your LT150Z Projector is simple to set up and use. But before you get started, you must first:
1. Determine the image size.
2. Set up a screen or select a non-glossy white wall onto which you can project your image.
Ensure that the power cable and any other cables connecting to video sources are disconnected before moving the projector.
When moving the projector or when it is not in use, cover the lens with the lens cap.
Selecting a Location
The further your projector is from the screen or wall, the larger the image. The minimum size the image can be is approximately 30" (0.8 m)
measured diagonally when the projector is roughly 4 feet (1.3 m) from the wall or screen. The largest the image can be is 200" (5.1 m) when
the projector is about 29 feet (8.8 m) from the wall or screen.
Screen and Projection Distance
The following shows the proper relative positions of the projector and screen. Refer to the table to determine the position of installation.

Terminology
PC card
This is the name of a card currently being standardized by the Japan Electronic Industry Association (JEIDA) and
PCMCIA (Personal Computer Memory Card Interface Association) of the United States.
ATA card
A type of PC card. ATA was originally a type of interface between computers and fixed disk devices. The ATA
card is a standard card-type recording medium.
CompactFlash
CompactFlash card is a small removable card conforming to ATA specifications. It is one-fourth the volume of a
PCMCIA card.
TYPE (I, II and III)
PCMCIA 2.1 PC cards are divided into three types according to their thickness: Type I (3.3 mm), Type II (5.0 mm)
and Type III (10.5 mm).
BMP
A type of image format. The standard Windows Bit Map format used for MS-DOS/Windows-compatible computers.
JPEG
A type of image format. "JPEG" is the abbreviation of Joint Photographic Experts Group. JPEG compression
offers efficient data storage. The data not required for displaying the image is identified and deleted. Since the
data is deleted, JPEG algorithms are said to be irreversible. This means that once the image is compressed, the
decompressed image it is not the same as the original image.
