PRODUCT DISPOSAL
This product utilizes tin-lead solder, and lamp containing a small
amount of mercury. Disposal of these materials may be regulated due
to environmental considerations. For disposal or recycling information,
please contact your local authorities, the Electronics Industries Alliance:
www.eiae.org, the lamp recycling organization www.lamprecycle.org, or
Sharp at 1-800-BE-SHARP.
U.S.A. ONLY
Caution Concerning Lamp Replacement
■ This projector utilizes a pressurized mercury lamp. A loud sound may indicate lamp failure. Lamp
failure can be attributed to numerous sources such as: excessive shock, improper cooling, surface
scratches or deterioration of the lamp due to a lapse of usage time.
The period of time up to failure largely varies depending on the individual lamp and/or the condition
and the frequency of use. It is important to note that failure can often result in the bulb cracking.
■ When the lamp replacement indicator and on-screen display icon are illuminated, it is recommended
that the lamp be replaced with a new one immediately, even if the lamp appears to be operating
normally.
■ Should the lamp break, there is also a possibility that glass particles may spread inside of the
projector. In such a case, it is recommended you contact your nearest Sharp Authorized Projector
Dealer or Service Center to assure safe operation.
■ Should the lamp break, the glass particles may spread inside the lamp cage or gas contained in the
lamp may be vented into the room from the exhaust vent. Because the gas in this lamp includes
mercury, ventilate the room well if the lamp breaks and avoid all exposure to the released gas. In
case of exposure to the gas, consult a doctor as soon as possible.
Caution
• Do not remove the lamp unit from the projector right after use. The lamp will be very hot and may
cause burns or injury.
• Wait at least one hour after the power cord is disconnected to allow the surface of the lamp unit to
fully cool before removing the lamp unit.
• Do not touch the glass surface of the lamp unit or the inside of the projector.
• Do not loosen other screws except for the lamp unit cover and lamp unit.
• Make sure to reset the lamp timer only when replacing the lamp. If you reset the lamp timer and
continue to use the same lamp, this may cause the lamp to become damaged or explode.
■ Carefully change the lamp by following the instructions described on pages 56 to 58.
* If you wish, you may have the lamp replaced at your nearest Sharp Authorized Projector
Dealer or Service Center.
* If the new lamp does not light after replacement, take your projector to the nearest Sharp Authorized
Projector Dealer or Service Center for repair.

Observe the following safeguards when setting up your
projector.
Caution concerning the lamp unit
■ Potential hazard of glass particles if lamp
ruptures. In case of lamp rupture, contact
your nearest Sharp Authorized Projector
Dealer or Service Center
for replacement.
See “Regarding the Lamp”
on page 56.
Caution concerning the setup of the
projector
■ For minimal servicing and to maintain high
image quality, SHARP recommends that
this projector be installed in an area free
from humidity, dust and cigarette smoke.
When the projector is subjected to these
environments, the vents and lens must be
cleaned more often. As long as the
projector is regularly cleaned, use in these
environments will not reduce the overall
operation life of the unit. Internal cleaning
should only be performed by a Sharp
Authorized Projector Dealer or Service
Center.
Rest your eyes occasionally.
■ Continuously watching the screen for long
hours will cause eye strain. Take regular
breaks to rest your eyes.
Do not set up the projector in places
exposed to direct sunlight or bright light.
■ Position the screen so that it is not in direct
sunlight or room light. Light falling directly
on the screen washes out the colors,
making viewing difficult. Close the curtains
and dim the lights when setting up the
screen in a sunny or bright room.
Caution regarding placing of the projector
■ Place the projector on a level site within the
adjustment range (9 degrees) of the
adjustment foot.
■ After the projector is purchased, a faint
smell from the vent may appear when the
power is first turned on. This is normal and
is not a malfunction. It will disappear after
the projector is used for a while.
8
When using the projector in highaltitude areas such as mountains (at
altitudes of approximately 1,500
meters (4,900 feet) or more)
■ When you use the projector in high-altitude
areas with thin air, set “Fan Mode” to
“High”. Neglecting this can affect the
longevity of the optical system.
■ Use the projector at altitudes of 2,300
meters (7,500 feet) or less.
Warning about placing the projector in
a high position
■ When placing the projector in a high
position, make certain it is carefully secure
to avoid personal injury caused by the
projector falling down.
Do not subject the projector to hard
impact and/or vibration.
■ Protect the lens so as not to hit or damage
the surface of the lens.
Avoid locations with extremes of
temperature.
■ The operating temperature of the projector
is from 41°F to 95°F (+5°C to +35°C).
■ The storage temperature of the projector is
from –4°F to 140°F (–20°C to +60°C).
Do not block the exhaust and intake
vents.
■ Allow at least 11 13/16 inches (30 cm) of
space between the exhaust vent and the
nearest wall or obstruction.
■ Ensure that the intake vent and the exhaust
vent are not obstructed.
■ If the cooling fan becomes obstructed, a
protection circuit will automatically put the
projector into Standby mode to prevent
overheat damage. This does not indicate a
malfunction. (See pages 54 and 55.)
Remove the projector power cord from the
wall outlet and wait at least 10 minutes.
Place the projector where the intake and
exhaust vents are not blocked, plug the
power cord back in and turn on the
projector. This will return the projector to
the normal operating condition.
Using the projector in other countries
■ If you are not to use the projector for a long
time or before moving the projector, make
certain you unplug the power cord from the
wall outlet, and disconnect any other
cables connected to it.
■ Do not carry the projector by holding the
lens.
■ When storing the projector, ensure that you
close the lens shutter.
■ Do not expose the projector to direct
sunlight or place next to heat sources.
Doing so may affect the cabinet color or
cause deformation of the plastic cover.
■ The power supply voltage and the shape of
the plug may vary depending on the region
or country you are using the projector in.
When using the projector overseas, make
sure you use an appropriate power cord for
the country you are in.
Other connected equipment
■ When connecting a computer or other
audio-visual equipment to the projector,
make the connections AFTER unplugging
the power cord of the projector from the
AC outlet and turning off the equipment to
be connected.
■ Please read the operation manuals of the
projector and the equipment to be
connected for instructions on how to make
the connections.
Introduction
Caution regarding usage of the projector
Temperature monitor function
■ If the temperature inside the projector
increases, due to blockage of the air vents,
or the setting location, the temperature
warning indicator will blink. And if the
temperature keeps on rising, “
” will
illuminate in the lower left corner of the
picture with the temperature warning
indicator blinking. If this state continues,
the lamp will turn off, the cooling fan will
run and then the projector will enter
Standby mode. Refer to “Maintenance
Indicators” on pages 54 and 55 for details.
Info
• The cooling fan regulates the internal
temperature, and its performance is automatically
controlled. The sound of the fan may change
during projector operation due to changes in the
fan speed. This does not indicate malfunction.

Introduction
Inserting the Batteries
• Insert the batteries making sure the polarities correctly match
the m and n marks inside the battery compartment.
Incorrect use of the batteries may cause them to leak or explode.
Please follow the precautions below
Caution
• Danger of explosion if battery is incorrectly replaced.
Replace only with alkaline or manganese batteries.
• Insert the batteries making sure the polarities correctly match the m and n marks inside the battery
compartment.
• Batteries of different types have different properties, therefore do not mix batteries of different types.
• Do not mix new and old batteries.
This may shorten the life of new batteries or may cause old batteries to leak.
• Remove the batteries from the remote control once they have run out, as leaving them in can cause them to leak.
Battery fluid from leaked batteries is harmful to skin, therefore ensure you wipe them first and then
remove them using a cloth.
• The batteries included with this projector may run down in a short period, depending on how they are kept.
Be sure to replace them as soon as possible with new batteries.
• Remove the batteries from the remote control if you will not be using the remote control for a long time.
• Comply with the rules (ordinance) of each local government when disposing of worn-out batteries.

Green: The lamp is on.
Blinking in green: The lamp is warming up.
Red: The lamp is shut down
abnormally or the lamp should be
replaced.
• When switching on the projector, a slight
flickering of the image may be experienced
within the first minute after the lamp has been
illuminated. This is normal operation as the
lamp's control circuitry is stabilising the lamp
output characteristics. It should not be
regarded as faulty operation.
• If the projector is put into Standby mode and
immediately turned on again, the lamp may
take some time to start projection.
• When System Lock is set, the keycode input
box appears. To cancel the keycode setting,
input the keycode that you have already set.

Maintenance
Cleaning the projector
■ Ensure that you have unplugged the power
cord before cleaning the projector.
■ The cabinet as well as the operation panel is
made of plastic. Avoid using benzene or
thinner, as these can damage the finish on
the cabinet.
■ Do not use volatile agents such as
insecticides on the projector.
Do not attach rubber or plastic items to the
projector for long periods.
The effects of some of the agents in the
plastic may cause damage to the quality or
finish of the projector.
■ Wipe off dirt gently with a soft flannel cloth.
Using a chemical cloth (wet/dry sheet type
cloth, etc.) may deform the components of
the cabinet or cause cracking.
■ Wiping with a hard cloth or using strong
force may scratch the cabinet surface.
■ When the dirt is hard to remove, soak a cloth
in a mild detergent diluted with water, wring
the cloth well and then wipe the projector.
Strong cleaning detergents may discolor,
warp or damage the coating on the projector.
Make sure to test on a small, inconspicuous
area on the projector before use.
Cleaning the lens
■ Use a commercially available blower or lens
cleaning paper (for glasses and camera
lenses) for cleaning the lens. Do not use any
liquid type cleaning agents, as they may
wear off the coating film on the surface of the
lens.
■ As the surface of the lens can easily get
damaged, be careful not to scrape or hit the
lens.
Cleaning the exhaust and intake vents
■ Use a vacuum cleaner to clean dust from the
exhaust vent and the intake vent.

Maintenance Indicators
■ The warning lights (power indicator, lamp indicator and temperature warning indicator) on the
projector indicate problems inside the projector.
■ If a problem occurs, either the temperature warning indicator or the lamp indicator will
illuminate red, and the projector will enter Standby mode. After the projector has entered
Standby mode, follow the procedures given below.

About the temperature warning indicator
If the temperature inside the projector increases, due to blockage of the air vents, or the setting
location, the temperature warning indicator will blink. And if the temperature keeps on rising,
“
” will illuminate in the lower left corner of the picture with the temperature warning
indicator blinking. If this state continues, the lamp will turn off, the cooling fan will run and then
the projector will enter Standby mode. When you find the temperature warning indicator
blinking, be sure to perform the measures described on page 55.
About the lamp indicator
■ When the remaining lamp life becomes 5% or less, (yellow) and “Change The Lamp” will
be displayed on the screen. When the percentage becomes 0%, it will change to (red), the
lamp will automatically turn off and then the projector will automatically enter Standby mode.
At this time, the lamp indicator will illuminate in red.
■ If you try to turn on the projector a fourth time without replacing the lamp, the
projector will not turn on.

Info
• If the temperature warning indicator illuminates, and the projector enters Standby mode, follow the
possible solutions above and then wait until the projector has cooled down completely before
plugging in the power cord and turning the power back on. (At least 10 minutes.)
• If the power is turned off for a brief moment due to power outage or some other cause while using
the projector, and the power supply recovers immediately after that, the lamp indicator will illuminate
in red and the lamp may not be lit. In this case, unplug the power cord from the AC outlet, replace
the power cord in the AC outlet and then turn the power on again.
• The cooling fan keeps the internal temperature of the projector constant and this function is
controlled automatically. The sound of the cooling fan may change during operation because the fan
speed may change and this is not a malfunction.

can be attributed to numerous sources such as: excessive shock, improper cooling, surface scratches
or deterioration of the lamp due to a lapse of usage time.
The period of time up to failure largely varies depending on the individual lamp and/or the condition and
the frequency of use. It is important to note that failure can often result in the bulb cracking.
■ When the lamp replacement indicator and on-screen display icon are illuminated, it is recommended
that the lamp be replaced with a new one immediately, even if the lamp appears to be operating
normally.
■ Should the lamp break, there is also a possibility that glass particles may spread inside of the projector.
In such a case, it is recommended you contact your nearest Sharp Authorized Projector Dealer or
Service Center to assure safe operation.
■ Should the lamp break, the glass particles may spread inside the lamp cage or gas contained in the
lamp may be vented into the room from the exhaust vent. Because the gas in this lamp includes
mercury, ventilate the room well if the lamp breaks and avoid all exposure to the released gas. In case of
exposure to the gas, consult a doctor as soon as possible.
Replacing the Lamp
Caution
• Do not remove the lamp unit from the projector right after use. The lamp will be very hot and may cause
burns or injury.
• Wait at least one hour after the power cord is disconnected to allow the surface of the lamp unit to fully
cool before removing the lamp unit.
■ Carefully change the lamp by following the instructions described in this section.
* If you wish, you may have the lamp replaced at your nearest Sharp Authorized Projector
Dealer or Service Center.
* If the new lamp does not light after replacement, take your projector to the nearest Sharp Authorized Projector
Dealer or Service Center for repair.

Baud rate*: 9,600 bps / 38,400 bps / 115,200 bps
Stop bit: 1 bit
Data length: 8 bits
Flow control: None
*Set the projector's baud rate to the same rate as used by the computer.

Info
• When controlling the projector using RS-232C commands from a computer, wait for at least 30
seconds after the power has been turned on, and then transmit the commands.
• After sending an input selection or picture adjustment command and then receiving an “OK” response
code, the projector may take some time to process the command. If a second command is sent while
the projector is still processing the first command, you may receive an “ERR” response code. If this
happens, try resending the second command.
• When more than one code is being sent, send each command only after the response code for the
previous command from the projector is verified.
• “POWR????”, “TABN _ _ _ 1”, “TLPS _ _ _ 1”, “TPOW _ _ _ 1”, “TLPN _ _ _ 1”, “TLTT _ _ _ 1”,
“TLTM _ _ _ 1”, “TLTL _ _ _ 1”, “TNAM _ _ _ 1”, “MNRD _ _ _ 1”, “PJN0 _ _ _ 1”
− When the projector receives the special commands shown above:
* The on-screen display will not disappear.
* The “Auto Power Off” timer will not be reset.
− The special commands are available for applications that require continuous polling.
Appendix
Note
• If an underbar (_) appears in the parameter column, enter a space.
• If an asterisk (*) appears in the parameter column, enter a value in the range indicated in brackets

• Optimum image quality will be achieved by matching your computer's output resolution to the
resolution that corresponds to “TRUE” in the “Display” column shown above.
• When “Screen resolution” of the computer is different from the resolution displayed on the projected
image, follow the procedures shown below.
– Refer to “Resolution” on the “SIG-ADJ” menu and select the same resolution as the resolution in
“Screen resolution” of the computer.
– Depending on the computer you are using, the output signal may not be faithful to the “Screen resolution”
adjustment. Check the settings of the computer's signal output. If the settings cannot be changed, it is
recommended that the resolution be set to the one that corresponds to “TRUE” in the “Display” column.

As a part of policy of continuous improvement, SHARP reserves the right to make design and
specification changes for product improvement without prior notice. The performance specification
figures indicated are nominal values of production units. There may be some deviations from these
values in individual units.
This SHARP projector uses a DLP® chip. This very sophisticated panel contains 786,432
pixels (micromirrors). As with any high technology electronic equipment such as large screen
TVs, video systems and video cameras, there are certain acceptable tolerances that the
equipment must conform to.
This unit has some inactive pixels within acceptable tolerances which may result in inactive dots
on the picture screen. This will not affect the picture quality or the life expectancy of the unit.
