Transporting the Projector
Projector Maintenance
Your projector needs little maintenance to keep working at its best.
You may need to clean the lens periodically, and clean the air filter and air vents to prevent the projector
from overheating due to blocked ventilation.
The only parts you should replace are the lamp, air filter, and remote control batteries. If any other part
needs replacing, contact Epson or an authorized Epson servicer.
Warning: Before cleaning any part of the projector, turn it off and unplug the power cord. Never open
any cover on the projector, except as specifically explained in this manual. Dangerous electrical voltages
in the projector can injure you severely.
Warning: Do not try to service this product yourself, except as specifically explained in this manual.
Refer all other servicing to qualified servicers.

Cleaning the Lens
Clean the projector's lens periodically, or whenever you notice dust or smudges on the surface.
• To remove dust or smudges, gently wipe the lens with lens-cleaning paper.
86
• To remove stubborn smudges, moisten a soft, lint-free cloth with lens cleaner and gently wipe the
lens. Do not spray any liquid directly on the lens.
Warning: Do not use a lens cleaner that contains flammable gas. The high heat generated by the
projector lamp may cause a fire.
Caution: Do not use glass cleaner to clean the lens, or you may damage it. Do not use canned air, or
the gases may leave a residue. Avoid touching the lens with your bare hands to prevent fingerprints on
or damage to the lens surface.
Parent topic: Projector Maintenance
Cleaning the Projector Case
Before cleaning the projector case, turn off the projector and unplug the power cord.
• To remove dust or dirt, use a soft, dry, lint-free cloth.
• To remove stubborn dirt, use a soft cloth moistened with water and mild soap. Do not spray liquid
directly on the projector.
Caution: Do not use wax, alcohol, benzene, paint thinner, or other chemicals to clean the projector
case. These can damage the case. Do not use canned air, or the gases may leave a residue.
Parent topic: Projector Maintenance
Air Filter and Vent Maintenance
The projector's air filter keeps the intake air clean, and its vents expel the exhaust. If dust collects on the
air filter or vents, clean them as described in this manual. Dust clogs may cause the projector to overheat
due to improper ventilation.
Be sure to clean the air filter and vents if you see a message telling you to do so. Also make sure nothing
blocks the vents.

Important Safety Information
Caution: Never look into the projector lens when the lamp is turned on; the bright light can damage your
eyes. Never let children look into the lens when it is on. Never open any cover on the projector, except
the lamp and filter covers. Dangerous electrical voltages inside the projector can severely injure you.
Except as specifically explained in this User's Guide, do not attempt to service this product yourself.
Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.
Warning: The projector and its accessories come packaged in plastic bags. Keep plastic bags away
from small children to avoid any risk of suffocation.
Caution: When you replace the lamp, never touch the new lamp with your bare hands; the invisible
residue left by the oil on your hands may shorten the lamp life. Use a cloth or glove to handle the new
lamp.
Parent topic: Notices
Important Safety Instructions
Follow these safety instructions when setting up and using the projector:
• Do not look into the lens when the projector is on. The bright light can damage your eyes.
122
• Do not place the projector on an unstable cart, stand, or table.
• Do not operate the projector on its side, or while tilted to one side. Do not tilt the projector more than
30° forward or back.
• If the projector is mounted on a ceiling, it should be installed by qualified technicians using mounting
hardware designed for use with this projector.
• When installing or adjusting a ceiling mount, do not use adhesives to prevent the screws from
loosening and do not use oils or lubricants. This may cause the projector case to crack and the
projector to fall from its ceiling mount. This could cause serious injury to anyone under the mount and
could damage the projector.
• Do not use the projector near water or sources of heat.
• Use the type of power source indicated on the projector. Use of a different power source may result in
fire or electric shock. If you are not sure of the power available, consult your dealer or power company.
• Place the projector near a wall outlet where the plug can be easily unplugged.
• Take the following precautions when handling the plug: Do not hold the plug with wet hands. Do not
insert the plug into an outlet with dust present. Insert the plug firmly into the outlet. Do not pull the
power cord when disconnecting the plug; always be sure to hold the plug when disconnecting it.
Failure to comply with these precautions could result in fire or electric shock.
• Do not overload wall outlets, extension cords, or power strips. Do not insert the plug into a dusty
outlet. This can cause fire or electric shock.
• Do not place the projector where the cord can be walked on. This may result in fraying or damage to
the plug.
• Unplug the projector from the wall outlet before cleaning. Use a dry cloth (or, for stubborn dirt or
stains, a moist cloth that has been wrung dry) for cleaning. Do not use liquid or aerosol cleaners.
• Do not block the slots and openings in the projector case. They provide ventilation and prevent the
projector from overheating. Do not operate the projector on a sofa, rug, or other soft surface, or set it
on top of loose papers, which could block vents underneath the projector. If you are setting up the
projector near a wall, leave at least 7.9 inches (20 cm) of space between the wall and the air exhaust
vent.
• Do not operate the projector in a closed-in cabinet unless proper ventilation is provided.
• Never push objects of any kind through the cabinet slots. Never spill liquid of any kind into the
projector.
• If you are using two or more projectors side-by-side, leave at least 2 feet (60 cm) of space between the
projectors to allow for proper ventilation.
123
• You may need to clean the air filter and vent. A clogged air filter or vent can block ventilation needed
to cool the projector. Do not use canned air, or the gases may leave a residue.
• Do not store the projector outdoors for an extended length of time.
• Except as specifically explained in this manual, do not attempt to service this product yourself. Refer
all servicing to qualified personnel. Opening or removing covers may expose you to dangerous
voltages and other hazards.
• Never open any covers on the projector except as specifically explained in this manual. Never attempt
to disassemble or modify the projector. Refer all repairs to qualified service personnel.
• Unplug the projector from the wall outlet and refer servicing to qualified service personnel under the
following conditions: if it does not operate normally when you follow the operating instructions, or
exhibits a distinct change in performance; if smoke, strange odors, or strange noises come from the
projector; if the power cord or plug is damaged or frayed; if liquid or foreign objects get inside the
projector, or if it has been exposed to rain or water; if it has been dropped or the housing has been
damaged.
• Do not touch the plug during an electrical storm. Otherwise, you may receive an electric shock.
• Unplug the projector when it will not be used for extended periods.
• Do not use the projector where it may be exposed to rain, water, or excessive humidity.
• Do not use the projector where it may be exposed to smoke, corrosive gases, or excessive dust.
• Do not use or store the projector or remote control in a hot location, such as near a heater, in direct
sunlight, or in a closed vehicle.
• If you use the projector in a country other than where you purchased it, use the correct power cord for
that country.
• Do not stand on the projector or place heavy objects on it.
• Do not use the projector outside of the required temperature range of 41 to 95 ºF (5 to 35 ºC). Doing
so may cause an unstable display and could lead to projector damage.
• Do not store the projector outside of the required temperature range of 14 to 140 ºF (–10 to 60 ºC) or
in direct sunlight for long periods of time. Doing so may cause damage to the case.
• Do not place anything that can become warped or damaged by heat near the exhaust vents. Do not
bring your hands or face close to the vents while projection is in progress.
• Before you move the projector, make sure its power is turned off, the plug is disconnected from the
outlet, and all cables are disconnected.
• Never try to remove the lamp immediately after use because it will be extremely hot. Before removing
the lamp, turn off the power and wait at least an hour to allow the lamp to cool completely.
124
• Do not disassemble the lamp or subject it to impacts.
• Do not place the source of an open flame, such as a lit candle, on or near the projector.
• Do not block the lens during projection using a book or any object other than the lens cover. This could
damage the projector or cause a fire.
• Do not modify the power cord. Do not place heavy objects on top of the power cord or bend, twist, or
pull it excessively. Keep the power cord away from hot electrical appliances.
• If the lamp breaks, ventilate the room to prevent gases contained in the lamp from being inhaled or
coming in contact with your eyes or mouth. If you do inhale gases or gases come in contact with your
eyes or mouth, seek medical advice immediately.
• If the projector is mounted overhead and the lamp breaks, be careful to prevent pieces of glass from
falling into your eyes when you open the lamp cover.
