Why am I unable to access

Why am I unable to receive
the test alert email even
though the projector already
indicates the test mail is
already sent?
1
Check with your MIS or network
administrator whether the SMTP
server function is open for the
projector and the IP assigned to the
projector is allowed to access the
SMTP server. The projector’s SMTP
socket port number is 25, this cannot
be changed.
2
Check if the outgoing SMTP server,
user name, and password are set
correctly.
3
Some SMTP servers will check
whether the mail address of "From"
correlates with the "User name" and
"Password". For example, you use
test@dell.com as the mail address in
"From". You should also use
test@dell.com account information
for the User name and the password
to log in the SMTP server.
It could be because the SMTP server
recognized the alert mail as a spam mail or
because of the SMTP server restriction.
Check with your MIS or network
administrator for the SMTP server’s setting.

projector and dispose or recycle according to state, local, or federal
law. For more information see www.dell.com/hg.
1 Turn off the projector and disconnect the power cord.
2 Let the projector cool for at least 30 minutes.
3 Loosen the two screws that secure
the lamp cover, and remove the
cover.
4 Loosen the two screws that secure
the lamp.
5 Pull the lamp up by its metal handle.
NOTE: Dell may require lamps
replaced under warranty to be
returned to Dell. Otherwise,
contact your local waste
disposal agency for the address
of the nearest deposit site.
6 Replace with the new lamp.
7 Tighten the two screws that secure the lamp.
8 Replace the lamp cover and tighten the two screws.

Lamp life
Normal mode: 3000 hours
Eco mode: 4000 hours
Dynamic eco cycle mode: 4500 hours
NOTE: The lamp life rating for any projector is a measure of
brightness degradation only, and is not a specification for the time it
takes a lamp to fail and cease light output. Lamp life is defined as the
time it takes for more than 50 percent of a lamp sample population to
have brightness decrease by approximately 50 percent of the rated
lumens for the specified lamp. The lamp life rating is not guaranteed
in any way. The actual operating life span of a projector lamp will vary
according to operating conditions and usage patterns. Usage of a
projector in stressful conditions which may include dusty
environments, under high temperatures, many hours per day, and
abrupt powering-off will most likely result in a lamp’s shortened
operating life span or possible lamp failure.

Appendix: Glossary
ANSI Lumens — A standard for measuring the brightness. It is calculated by
dividing a square meter image into nine equal rectangles, measuring the
lux (or brightness) reading at the center of each rectangle, and averaging
these nine points.
Aspect Ratio — The most popular aspect ratio is 4:3 (4 by 3). Early
television and computer video formats are in a 4:3 aspect ratio, which
means that the width of the image is 4/3 times the height.
Brightness — The amount of light emitted from a display or projection
display or projection device. The brightness of projector is measured by
ANSI lumens.
Color Temperature — The color appearance of white light. Low color
temperature implies warmer (more yellow/red) light while high color
temperature implies a colder (more blue) light. The standard unit for color
temperature is Kelvin (K).
Component Video — A method of delivering quality video in a format that
consists of the luminance signal and two separate chrominance signals
and are defined as Y'Pb'Pr' for analog component and Y'Cb'Cr' for digital
component. Component video is available on DVD players.
Composite Video — A video signal that combines the luma (brightness),
chroma (color), burst (color reference), and sync (horizontal and vertical
synchronizing signals) into a signal waveform carried on a single wire pair.
There are three kinds of formats, namely, NTSC, PAL, and SECAM.
Compressed Resolution — If the input images are of higher resolution
than the native resolution of the projector, the resulting image will be
scaled to fit the native resolution of the projector. The nature of
compression in a digital device means that some image content is lost.
Contrast Ratio — Range of light and dark values in a picture, or the ratio
between their maximum and minimum values. There are two methods
used by the projection industry to measure the ratio:
1 Full On/Off — measures the ratio of the light output of an all white image
(full on) and the light output of an all black (full off) image.
2 ANSI — measures a pattern of 16 alternating black and white rectangles.
The average light output from the white rectangles is divided by the
Glossary
125
average light output of the black rectangles to determine the ANSI contrast
ratio.
Full On/Off contrast is always a larger number than ANSI contrast for the
same projector.
dB — decibel — A unit used to express relative difference in power or
intensity, usually between two acoustic or electric signals, equal to ten
times the common logarithm of the ratio of the two levels.
Diagonal Screen — A method of measuring the size of a screen or a
projected image. It measures from one corner to the opposite corner. A 9
FT high, 12 FT wide, screen has a diagonal of 15 FT. This document
assumes that the diagonal dimensions are for the traditional 4:3 ratio of a
computer image as per the example above.
DHCP — Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol — A network protocol that
enables a server to automatically assign a TCP/IP address to a device.
DLP® — Digital Light Processing™ — Reflective display technology
developed by Texas Instruments, using small manipulated mirrors. Light
passing through a color filter is sent to the DLP mirrors which arrange the
RGB colors into a picture projected onto screen, also known as DMD.
DMD — Digital Micro-Mirror Device — Each DMD consists of thousands of
tilting, microscopic aluminum alloy mirrors mounted on a hidden yoke.
DNS — Domain Name System — An Internet service that translates domain
names into IP addresses.
Focal Length — The distance from the surface of a lens to its focal point.
Frequency — It is the rate of repetition in cycles per seconds of electrical
signals. Measured in Hz (Hertz).
HDCP — High-Bandwidth Digital-Content Protection — A specification
developed by Intel™ Corporation to protect digital entertainment across
digital interface, such as DVI, HDMI.
HDMI — High-Definition Multimedia Interface — HDMI carries both
uncompressed high definition video along with digital audio and device
control data in a single connector.
Hz (Hertz) — Unit of frequency.
IEEE802.11 — A set of standards for wireless local are network (WLAN)
communication. 802.11b/g/n uses the 2.4 GHz band.
Keystone Correction — Device that will correct an image of the distortion
(usually a wide-top narrow-bottom effect) of a projected image caused by
improper projector to screen angle.
126
Glossary
Maximum Distance — The distance from a screen the projector can be to
cast an image that is usable (bright enough) in a fully darkened room.
Maximum Image Size — The largest image a projector can throw in a
darkened room. This is usually limited by focal range of the optics.
Minimum Distance — The closest position that a projector can focus an
image onto a screen.
NTSC — National Television Standards Committee. North American
standard for video and broadcasting, with a video format of 525 lines at 30
frames per second.
PAL — Phase Alternating Line. A European broadcast standard for video
and broadcasting, with a video format of 625 lines at 25 frames per second.
Reverse Image — Feature that allows you to flip the image horizontally.
When used in a normal forward projection environment text, graphics, etc.
are backwards. Reverse image is used for rear projection.
RGB — Red, Green, Blue — typically used to describe a monitor that
requires separate signals for each of the three colors.
S-Video — A video transmission standard that uses a 4-pin mini-DIN
connector to send video information on two signal wires called luminance
(brightness, Y) and chrominance (color, C). S-Video is also referred to as
Y/C.
SECAM — A French and international broadcast standard for video and
broadcasting, closely related to PAL but with a different method of sending
color information.
SSID — Service Set Identifiers — A name used to identify the particular
wireless LAN to which a user wants to connect.
SVGA — Super Video Graphics Array — 800 x 600 pixels count.
SXGA — Super Extended Graphics Array, — 1280 x 1024 pixels count.
UXGA — Ultra Extended Graphics Array — 1600 x 1200 pixels count.
VGA — Video Graphics Array — 640 x 480 pixels count.
WEP — Wired Equivalent Privacy — This is a method for encrypting
communication data. The encryption key is created and notified only to the
communicating user, so the communication data cannot be decrypted by
a third party.
XGA — Extended Video Graphics Array — 1024 x 768 pixels count.
WXGA — Wide Extended Graphics Array — 1280 x 800 pixels count.
