Security Functions
Preventing theft (Password Protect)
When the Password Protect function is activated, people who do not know the
password will not be able to use the projector to project images, if the power
has been disconnected since the password was last entered correctly.
Furthermore, the user's logo that is displayed on the background of the
screen cannot be changed. This is effective against theft. At the time of
purchase, the password protection function is not enabled.
When Password Protect is Enabled
When "Power On Protect" is enabled (On)
When the power is turned on for the first time after the projector's
power cable is connected to an electrical outlet, or when Direct Power
On is carried out, the following password entry screen will be

Numeric buttons
While holding down the [Num] button, press the numeric keypad
buttons to enter the password. If the password is entered correctly,
projection will start.
If you leave the power cable connected to the electrical outlet and turn
the projector's power on when it is in standby mode, projection will
start without the password entry screen appearing. The password
entry screen will only be displayed when the power is turned on for
the first time after the power cable has been disconnected and then
reconnected. If Direct Power On is set to "On" and you are using a
circuit breaker or similar to centrally control the power, the password
entry screen will be displayed the first time the projector is turned on
after the power supply is restored.
p
• If an incorrect password is entered three times in succession, the
message "The projector’s operation will be locked." will be displayed
for approximately five minutes, and then the projector will switch to
standby mode. If this happens, disconnect the power plug from the
electrical outlet and then reinsert it and turn the projector's power back
on. A window requesting you to enter the password will be displayed, so
enter the correct password.
If you happen to forget the password, make a note of the "Request
Code: xxxxx" number that appears in the Password screen and contact
Epson (see page 57).
• If you continue to repeat the above operation and input the wrong
password thirty times, the following message will be displayed and the
projector will not accept password entries any more.
“The projector’s operation will be locked.” Contact Epson (see page
57).

Cleaning
Maintenance
This section describes maintenance tasks such as cleaning the projector and
replacing consumable parts.
Cleaning the Air Filters and Air Intake Vent
Cleaning
If dust collects on the air filter or the air outlet, it can cause the internal
temperature of the projector to rise, and this can lead to problems with
operation and shortening of the optical engine's service life.
You should clean the projector if it becomes dirty or if the quality of projected
images starts to deteriorate.
It is recommended that you clean these parts at least once every three
months. Clean them more often than this if using the projector in particularly
dusty environments.
Cleaning the Projector
Clean the projector's surface by wiping it gently with a soft cloth.
If the projector is particularly dirty, moisten the cloth with water containing a
small amount of neutral detergent, and then firmly wring the cloth dry before
using it to wipe the projector's surface. Then wipe it again with a soft, dry
cloth.
c
Do not use volatile substances such as wax, alcohol or thinner to clean
the projector's surface. These can cause the projector to warp and make
the coating finish peel off.
Cleaning the Lens
Use a commercially-available air blower, or use a lens cleaning paper to
gently wipe the lens.
c
Do not rub the lens with harsh materials or subject the lens to shocks, as
it can easily become damaged.
p
If the air filters are broken or if the warning message reappears after
they have been cleaned, they should be replaced. Replace with a new air
filter. See “Replacing the Air Filter” on page 44.

Replace the battery cover.
Press the battery compartment cover until it clicks into place.
This section explains how to replace the remote control batteries, the lamp,
and the air filters.
Replacing the Batteries
If delays in the responsiveness of the remote control occur or if it does not
operate after it has been used for some time, it probably means that the
batteries are getting low. Replace the batteries. Have two spare AAA-size
alkali batteries ready to use when required.
1
Remove the battery cover.
While pushing the catch of the battery compartment cover, lift the
cover up.
Lamp Replacement Period
It is time to replace the lamp when:
• The message "Replace the Lamp." appears on the screen when
projection starts
Catch
A message will be displayed.
2
Insert the batteries.
• When the Lamp indicator is flashing orange
Check the positions of the (+) and (–) marks inside the battery holder
to ensure that the batteries are inserted the correct way.
Flashing orange
41
Replacing Consumables
• The projected image gets darker or starts to deteriorate
p
• The lamp replacement message is set to appear after the following
periods of time in order to maintain the initial brightness and quality of
the projected images.
·When used at high brightness: Approx. 2000 hours
·When used at low brightness: Approx. 3000 hours
• If you continue to use the lamp after this period, the possibility of the
lamp breaking becomes greater. When the lamp replacement message
appears, replace the lamp with a new one as soon as possible, even if it
is still working.
• Depending on the characteristics of the lamp and on the way it has been
used, the lamp may become darker or stop working before the lamp
warning message appears. You should always have a spare lamp ready
in case it is needed.
• Contact Epson for a spare lamp (see page 57).
• Lamp life results vary depending on mode selected, environmental
conditions, and usage. Lamp brightness decreases over time. Turn off
this product when not in use to prolong the life of the projector.
Replacing the Lamp
c
1
• If you are replacing the lamp, it is possible that the glass around the
lamp is broken.
• If replacing the lamp on a ceiling-mounted projector, be careful when
removing the lamp cover; broken glass could fall out of the lamp area
and get in your eyes.
• Wait until the lamp has cooled down sufficiently (about one hour) before
removing the lamp cover.
Turn off the projector’s power, wait until it beeps twice, and
disconnect the power cable.
2
Wait until the lamp has cooled down, then remove the lamp
cover from the base of the projector.
Loosen the lamp cover screw with the screwdriver that is supplied
with the spare lamp (or your own Phillips head screwdriver).
Then slide the lamp cover straight back and lift it off.
3
Loosen the two lamp screws.

Remedy
Is the remote control light-emitting area pointing
towards the front or back of the projector, or toward
the screen?
Point the remote control towards the projector or the screen.
The operating angle for the remote control is approximately ±30º horizontally and approximately ±15º vertically.
Is the remote control too far from the projector?
The operating range for the remote control is approximately 6 meters (20 feet).
Is direct sunlight or strong light from fluorescent lamps
shining onto the projector’s light-receiving area?
Set the projector up in a location where strong light will not shine onto the light-receiving area.
Are the batteries dead, or have the batteries been
inserted correctly?
Insert new batteries, making sure that they are inserted correctly. See page 40.
Has a remote control button been pressed for more
than 30 seconds?
If any of the buttons on the remote control are pressed down for more than 30 seconds, the remote control stops
sending signals (remote control's sleep mode). This prevents the batteries from being consumed due to something
being placed on top of the remote control.
When the button is released, normal remote control operation will resume.

The ratio between an image's length and its height. HDTV images have an aspect ratio of 16:9 and appear elongated. The aspect ratio for
standard images is 4:3.
The temperature of an object that is emitting light. If the color temperature is high, the colors take on a bluish tinge. If the color temperature
is lower, the colors take on a reddish tinge.
Video signals which have the video brightness signals and color signals separated, in order to provide better image quality.
In high-definition TV (HDTV), it refers to images which consist of three independent signals: Y (luminance signal), and Pb and Pr (color
difference signals).
Video signals which have the video brightness signals and color signals mixed together. The type of signals commonly used by household
video equipment (NTSC, PAL and SECAM formats).
The carrier signal Y (luminance signal) and chroma (color) signal which are contained in the color bar are overlapped to form a single signal.
The relative brightness of the light and dark areas of an image can be increased or decreased in order to make text and graphics stand out
more clearly, or to make them appear softer.
A sound format developed by Dolby Laboratories. Normal stereo is a 2-channel format which uses two speakers. Dolby Digital is a 6-channel
(5.1-channel) system which adds to this a center speaker, two rear speakers, and a sub-woofer.
An abbreviation for High-Definition Television. It refers to high-definition systems which satisfy the following conditions.
Vertical resolution of 750p or 1125i or greater (p = progressive, i =interlaced)
Screen aspect ratio of 16:9
Dolby Digital audio reception and playback (or output)
A method of image scanning whereby the image data is divided into fine horizontal lines which are displayed in sequence starting from left to
right and then from the top to the bottom of the screen. The even-numbered lines and odd-numbered lines are displayed alternately.
A method of image scanning whereby the image data from a single image is scanned sequentially from top to bottom to create a single
image.
The light-emitting element of a display maintains the same luminosity and color for an extremely short time. Because of this, the image must
be scanned many times per second in order to refresh the light-emitting element. The number of refresh operations per second is called the
"refresh rate", and is expressed in hertz (Hz).
An abbreviation for Standard Definition Television. It refers to standard television systems which do not satisfy the conditions for HighDefinition Television.
A commercially available cable that can be attached to the projector to prevent theft. This projector is compatible with the Microsaver
Security System manufactured by Kensington.
In this mode, wide-screen images in 16:9 mode are compressed in the horizontal direction so that they are stored on the recording medium
as 4:3 images.
When these images are played back by the projector in squeeze mode, they are restored to their original 16:9 format.
An international standard for color intervals that was formulated so that colors which are reproduced by video equipment can be handled
easily by computer operating systems (OS) and the Internet. If the connected source has an sRGB mode, set both the projector and the
connected signal source to sRGB.

A type of video signal with a resolution of 800 (horizontal) × 600 (vertical) dots which is used by IBM PC/AT-compatible computers.
A video signal which has the luminance component and color component separated in order to provide better image quality.
It refers to images which consist of two independent signals: Y (luminance signal), and C (color signal).
A type of video signal with a resolution of 1280 (horizontal) × 1024 (vertical) dots which is used by IBM PC/AT-compatible computers.
The signals output from computers and RGB video equipment have a specific frequency. If the projector frequency does not match this
frequency, the resulting images will not be of a good quality. The process of matching the phases of these signals (the relative position of the
crests and troughs in the signal) is called "synchronization". If the signals are not synchronized, problems such as flickering, blurriness and
horizontal interference can occur.
The signals output from computers and RGB video equipment have a specific frequency. If the projector frequency does not match this
frequency, the resulting images will not be of a good quality. The process of matching the frequency of these signals (the number of crests in
the signal) is called "tracking". If tracking is not carried out correctly, wide vertical stripes will appear in the projected images.
An abbreviation for Universal Serial Bus. USB is an interface for connecting personal computers to peripheral devices which only support
relatively low data transmission speeds.
A type of video signal with a resolution of 640 (horizontal) × 480 (vertical) dots which is used by IBM PC/AT-compatible computers.
A type of video signal with a resolution of 1024 (horizontal) × 768 (vertical) dots which is used by IBM PC/AT-compatible computers.
