Lamp Replacement
7. If you wish to have the projector installed on the ceiling:
• To replace the lamp, follow all instructions provided on page
9-2.
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.
• 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. CAUTION: Do not touch them as the pieces
of glass may cause injury. If this happens, contact your Digital
Projection dealer for lamp replacement.
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.
To Dealer or Installer:
• Allow a minimum of 90 seconds to elapse after turning off
the projector. Then turn off the main power and disconnect
the power cable and allow 15 minutes to cool the projector
before replacing the lamp.
To prevent the projector from falling, install it in a place and
fasten it in a way with sufficient strength to support the
combined weight of the projector (25 kg / 55 lbs), the lens and
any mounting hardware, for an extended period of time as well
as to withstand earthquakes.
• The projector must be operated with two lamps installed
regardless of whether or not the lamp is active. Failure to do
so may degrade the performance of the projector such as
screen flicker or loss of lamp life. If one lamp has reached the
end of its usable life, replace it with a new one as soon as
possible.
Power Supply
1. The projector is designed to operate on a power supply of
100-240 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.
4. Do not touch the power plug with wet hand. Doing so can
cause electrical shock or fire.
5. Do not touch the power plug during a thunder storm. Doing
so can cause electrical shock or fire.
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, except to the rear and the
ventilation outlet on the right side, where there should be at
least 12 inches (30cm) of space.
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
Digital Projection service personnel.
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.
3. Do not place any liquids on top of your projector.
4. When using a LAN cable:
CAUTION
For safety, do not connect to the connector for peripheral
device wiring that might have excessive Voltage.
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:
• While the message "Please wait a moment." appears. This
message will be displayed after the projector is turned off.
CAUTION
• Do not look into the lens while the projector is on. Serious
damage to your eyes could result.
• Immediately after the power cable is plugged into the wall
outlet (the POWER indicator has not changed to a steady
orange glow).
• 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.
• Immediately after the cooling fan stops working (The cooling
fan continues to work for 90 seconds after the projector is
turned off).
• Do not cover the lens with the supplied lens hood 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.
CAUTION
• Do not try to touch the ventilation outlets as they can
become heated while the projector is turned on.
• Do not put the projector on its side when the lamp is turned
on.
Doing so may cause damage to the projector.
• Before shipping this projector, remove the lens and attach
the lens hood cap.
The Lens Shift mechanism may encounter damage caused
by improper handling during transportation.
• Do not eject a PC card or LAN card while its data is being
accessed. Doing so can damage your PC card or LAN card.

Remote Control Precautions
• The remote control system may not function when direct sunlight or
strong illumination strikes the remote control sensor of the main unit,
or when there is an obstacle in the path.
• When remote control buttons are pressed and held, projector’s
function keys may not operate.
• Do not subject to strong shock.
• Do not allow water or other liquid to splash on the remote control. If
the remote control gets wet, wipe it dry immediately.
Operating Range for Wireless Remote Control
The infrared signal operates by line-of-sight up to a distance of
approximately 7m (20 feet) and a 60 degree angle of the
remote sensor.
The projector will not function if there are objects between the
remote sensor and the remote control or if strong light falls on
the remote sensor. Weak batteries will also prevent the
projector from operating properly.
• Avoid exposure to heat and steam.
• Remove the batteries from the remote control when the remote
control is not going to be used for a long period.

(where [extension] = distance between front of casing and end of lens)
Example: Throw Distance for 2.5m wide screen using zoom lens 001-736 set to 1.6 : 1
Throw Distance
= 2.5m x 1.6 = 4m +/- extension
= 98” x 1.6

WARNING
* Installing the projector on the ceiling must be done by a qualified
technician.
• Tilting the projector from side to side by more than 12° from level
will reduce lamp life (see page iv).
• Only use your projector on a solid, level surface. If the projector
falls, you could be injured and the projector severely damaged.
• Do not use the projector where temperatures vary greatly. The
projector must be used at temperatures between 32°F (0°C) and
95°F (35°C).
• Do not expose the projector to moisture, dust, or smoke. This will
reduce the quality of the image.
• Ensure that you have adequate ventilation around your projector
so heat can dissipate. Do not cover the vents on the projector.

Finally store the adjustments in memory.
If you adjust beyond the best focus point, go back to step 2 and
repeat the procedures. Always adjust the focus from the negative
direction towards the positive direction.
Geometric Correction Tool
If you use a special shaped screen such as a cylindrical or spherical

Preparation: Connect the USB mouse to the projector. See page 4-3.
Tips on Adjusting Focus
Optimum focus adjustments can be achieved on the projector
by paying special attention in a few areas.
Focus adjustment after the projector has warmed up to
normal operating temperature is better than doing so when
the projector is cold.
Lens mechanism interacts differently when adjusting focus
from one direction to the other.
For this reason final focus adjustments should be done in a
specific direction.
1. Project an image so that the screen is smaller than the area of the
raster.
2. Pick up any one of the corners and align the corner of the screen
with the one of the image. (The drawing shows the upper right
corner.)

1 Introduction
Thank you for your purchase of the Digital Projection portable
projector (hereafter referred to as "unit" or "projector").
This projector is connected to a personal computer or other equipment and clearly projects text or graphics to a screen.
This projector is supplied with convenient software that allows
presentations to be made more simply and effectively. This guide
gives an overview and describes the use of the accompanying
software (contained in the CD-ROM that is supplied with this projector). Look over this guide in conjunction with the Help functions of the software programs.
Contents of the Supplied CD-ROM
The supplied CD-ROM contains the following software programs:
• Dynamic Image Utility 2.0
• Viewer PPT Converter 2.0
• Image Express Utility 1.0
Please see the Help functions of the software programs for information about their functions and operation.
What Can Be Accomplished with the Supplied
Software
Dynamic Image Utility 2.0
•
Converts PowerPoint files, JPEG images, and other files and
creates slides that can be displayed with the viewer function of
the projector.
• Captures portions of the image from the screens of word
processors, spreadsheets, browsers, and other programs for
use in presentations.
•
•
By saving the created slides on a flash memory card (*1) and
inserting the card into the PC Card slot of the projector, the
slides can be projected to the screen without connecting a
personal computer.
The connection of personal computers and projectors by means
of a network environment (*2) or connection with USB cable (*3)
or serial cable allows the following uses. (In a network
environment or USB cable connection (*3) , support of multiple
units is permitted.)
(1) Images and slides can be sent from the personal computer to the
projector and then projected to the screen. When using
Microsoft PowerPoint 2000/2002, slides can be sent
synchronized with the slide show page feed.
•
When using Microsoft PowerPoint 2000/2002, Viewer PPT
Converter 2.0 can be started from PowerPoint (by means of addin registration to PowerPoint).
Using a network environment (*2), this program enables the
screen image displayed by the personal computer to be sent to
the projector and then projected to a screen.
•
Two methods are available for sending the screen image to the
projector. "Continuous Transmit" automatically sends the screen
image of the personal computer at a fixed interval. "Single Frame
Transmit" sends the screen image by clicking the screen button
(or pressing a key).
*2: Please check the network environment on the next page.
*3: USB cable connection is not supported by the LT260/LT240/

<Problem> The projector cannot be found with "General search". (IEU 1.0)
Check Points
Countermeasures
Are the wireless LAN settings appropriate?
Are the channel numbers for the personal computer and the
projector set to the same number?
When WEP (encryption) has been set, has the same value been
set for both the personal computer and the projector?
Please check the access points, the personal computer setting
values and the projector [LAN Mode] setting values.
When using the infrastructure or 802.11 Ad Hoc, please set to
the same character string since SSID distinguishes between
upper and lower case characters.
Are radio communication conditions satisfactory?
Check whether there are obstacles located between the
access point and the personal computer. Try moving the
personal computer closer to the access point.
Are the TCP/IP settings (e.g., IP address, sub net mask, etc.) of
the personal computer and the projector correct?
Check whether the network settings are within the same
segment.
Are more than one network interface cards (NIC) being used
with the same computer?
Set only the network interface card (NIC) that is connected
to the projector to "Valid".
For a network card that is not connected to the projector, click
the network card name under "Control Panel" → "System" →
"Device Manager" → "Network Adapter" and then click
[Properties (R)] and set the device usage to "Not used".
<Problem> Sometimes it takes a long time for screen transmission from the personal computer to
the projector. (IEU 1.0)
Countermeasures
Check Points
• Transmission time may be long depending on the image
pattern.
• When screens are sent to multiple projectors simultaneously,
a larger number of projectors will result in longer transmission
times.
• The transmission time may vary depending on the network
environment.
• The transmission time may vary depending on the performance of the personal computer as well as other application
software that is running at the same time.
Transmission time will be longer when the resolution of the
personal computer and that of the projector differ since there
will be an increase in resolution conversion processing.
We recommend that the resolution of the personal computer
and that of the projector be set to the same setting value.
The resolution of this projector is 1024 x 768 dots.
Select the resolution to 1024 x 768 on your PC for sending an
image to the projector.
<Problem> Cannot follow the screen switching processing of the PowerPoint slide show, etc. (IEU 1.0)
Countermeasures
Check Points
Smooth screen switching processing or animation effects
cannot be followed because in Image Express Utility 1.0, the
screen condition of the personal computer is sent to the
projector at a fixed time interval.
Use the software with " the PowerPoint screen switching
effects, animation effects, and other settings set to "None".

1 Replacing the Lamp
The projector has two lamps pre-wired into one module,
therefore it is not possible to replace a single lamp. After lamp
1 or lamp 2 has been operating for 1000 hours (Normal mode
using the standard lamp, part number 001-742), the "Lamp"
indicator on the control panel will blink red and a warning
message will appear. Even though the lamp may still be
working, replace it as soon as possible to maintain optimal
projector performance.
4. Pull the lamp module to the right, then to the rear to remove it from
the projector.
CAUTION
• DO NOT TOUCH THE LAMP immediately after it has been used. It
will be extremely hot. Turn the projector off, wait 90 seconds, and
then disconnect the power cable. Allow at least 15 minutes for the
lamp to cool before handling.
• DO NOT REMOVE ANY SCREWS except the rear cover screw and
the two lamp module screws. You could receive an electric shock.
• If you continue to use the lamp after 1000 hours, the lamp bulb
may shatter, and pieces of glass may be scattered in the lamp
module.
CAUTION: Do not touch them as the pieces of
glass may cause injury. If this happens, contact your Digital
Projection dealer for lamp replacement.
• The projector will turn off and go into stand by mode after 1500
hours of service (Normal mode using the standard lamp - this time
is extended when using Eco mode). If this happens, the lamp must
be replaced.
• The projector contains high-precision parts, so make sure that no
dust or dirt can get into the cabinet during lamp replacement. Clean
the outside of the cabinet before opening the rear cover.
To replace the lamp module:
1. Loosen the rear cover fastening by turning it through 45° and open
the cover, using the support if the projector is upside down.
NOTE: There is an interlock on the rear cover to prevent the risk of
electrical shock. Do not attempt to circumvent this interlock.
2. Squeezing the plug latch firmly, unplug the lamp control cable from the
connector at the rear of the lamp module.
5. Insert a new lamp module, manoeuvreing it carefully so that the plug
on the top of the module mates properly with the socket in the roof of
the cabinet.
CAUTION: Do not use a lamp other than the Digital Projection
replacement lamp (Standard life lamp: 001-742).
6. Secure it in place with the two screws.
Be sure to tighten the screws.
7. Re-connect the lamp control cable to the connector at the rear of the
lamp housing.

Replacing or Cleaning the Filter
The air-filter prevents dust or dirt from getting inside the
projector and should be cleaned after every 100 hours of
operation (more often in dusty conditions). If the filter is dirty
or clogged, your projector may overheat.
NOTE: The message "Please clean the filters" will be displayed each
time the projector is turned on after it has been used in excess of 168
hours. Should this message appear, clean the filters as a matter of
urgency.
1. Turn off 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.
CAUTION
• Turn the projector off, wait 90 seconds, and then disconnect the
power cable, before cleaning the filter.
• Do not attempt to operate the projector without a filter.
• The projector contains high-precision parts, so make sure that no
dust or dirt can get into the cabinet during filter replacement. Clean
the outside of the cabinet before opening the rear cover.
To replace or clean the filter:
1. Loosen the rear cover fastening by turning it through 45° and open
the cover, using the support if the projector is upside down.
NOTE: There is an interlock on the rear cover to prevent the risk of
electrical shock. Do not attempt to circumvent this interlock.
2. Remove the single cross-headed screw securing the top edge of the
filter, and remove the filter.

3. If the filter is severely clogged, or damaged, then it should be
replaced.
NOTE: Do not wash the filter with water, as this will damage the filter
membrane.
4. Clean the filter using a vacuum cleaner.
5. Install the new or cleaned filter by first locating the bottom edge into
the recess, then hinging the filter upwards. Secure the filter by
replacing the screw.
6. Close the rear cover firmly, ensuring that the catch clicks shut.
NOTE: After the filter has been changed, the message "Please clean
the filters" will continue to be displayed until the Filter Usage Meter has
been cleared
7. Following the instructions in Section 8, go to Page 5 in the Projector
Setup menu, and press the button marked “Clear Filter Usage Meter”.

Structure of the HTTP Server
10 Operation Using an HTTP Browser
Overview
The use of HTTP server functions will allow control of the projector from a web browser without the installation of special software. Please be sure to use “Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.x” or a
higher version for the web browser. (This device uses “JavaScript”
and “Cookies” and the browser should be set to accept these
functions. The setting method will vary depending on the version
of browser. Please refer to the help files and the other information provided in your software.)
NOTE:
* The use of HTTP server functions is not available during Standby
mode.
* The display’s or button’s response can be slowed down or operation
may not be accepted depending the settings of your network. Should
this happen, consult your network administrator.
* The projector may not respond if its buttons are repeatedly pressed in
rapid intervals. Should this happen, wait a moment and repeat. If you
still can’t get any response, pull out and then re-insert the LAN card.
* Do not use the HTTP Server functions and the Dynamic Image Utility
included on the supplied CD-ROM. Using both at the same time may
result in a connection failure or slow response.
Access is gained to the HTTP server functions by specifying
http:// <the projector’s IP address> /index.html
in the entry column of the URL.
Preparation Before Use
Make network connections and set up the projector and confirm
that it is complete before engaging in browser operations. (See
“LAN Mode” on page 8-19.)
Operation with a browser that uses a proxy server may not be
possible depending on the type of proxy server and the setting
method. Although the type of proxy server will be a factor, it is
possible that items that have actually been set will not be displayed depending on the effectiveness of the cache, and the contents set from the browser may not be reflected in operation. It is
recommended that a proxy server not be used unless it is unavoidable.
Handling of the Address for Operation via a
Browser
Regarding the actual address that is entered for the address or
entered to the URL column when operation of the projector is via
a browser, the host name can be used as it is when the host
name corresponding to the IP address of the projector has been
registered to the domain name server by a network administrator, or the host name corresponding to the IP address of the projector has been set in the “HOSTS” file of the computer being
used.
