Important safety instructions
Your projector is designed and tested to meet the latest standards for safety of information
technology equipment. However, to ensure safe use of this product, it is important that you
follow the instructions mentioned in this manual and marked on the product.
1. Please read this user manual before you operate your projector. Keep this manual in a
safe place for future reference.
2. Always place the projector on a level, horizontal surface during operation.
- Do not place the projector on an unstable cart, stand, or table as it may fall and be
damaged;
- Do not place inflammables near the projector;
- Do not use if tilted at an angle of more than 10 degrees left to right, nor at angle of more
than 15 degrees front to back.
3. Do not store the projector on end vertically. Doing so may cause the projector to fall
over, causing injury or resulting in damage.
4. Do not place the projector in any of the following environments:
- space that is poorly ventilated or confined. Allow at least 50 cm clearance from walls
and free flow of air around the projector;
- locations where temperatures may become excessively high, such as the inside of a car
with all windows closed;
- locations where excessive humidity, dust, or cigarette smoke may contaminate optical
components, shortening the projector’s lifespan and darkening the screen;
- locations near fire alarms;
- locations with an ambient temperature above 40°C/104°F;
- locations where altitude is higher than 1500 meters/4920 feet above sea level.
5. Do not block the ventilation holes while the projector is on (even in standby mode):
- Do not cover the projector with any item;
- Do not place the projector on a blanket, bedding or any other soft surface.
6. In areas where the mains power supply voltage may fluctuate by ±10 volts, it is
recommended that you connect your projector through a power stabilizer, surge
protector or uninterruptible power supply (UPS) as appropriate to your situation.
7. Do not step on the projector or place any objects upon it.
8. Do not place liquids near or on the projector. Liquids spilled into the projector will void
your warranty. If the projector does become wet, disconnect it from the power point
and call your local service center to have the projector repaired.
9. Do not look straight into the projector lens during operation. It may harm your sight.
10. Do not operate the projector lamp beyond the rated lamp life. Excessive operation of

Notice
Please keep the original packing for possible future shipment. If you need to pack your projector after
use, adjust the projection lens to an appropriate position, put the lens cushion around the lens, and fit the
lens cushion and projector cushion together to prevent damage during transportation.
Moisture condensation
Never operate the projector immediately after moving it from a cold location to a hot
location. When the projector is exposed to such a change in temperature, moisture may
condense on the crucial internal parts. To prevent the projector from possible damage, do
not use the projector for at least 2 hours when there is a sudden change in temperature.
Avoid volatile liquid
Do not use volatile liquids, such as insecticide or some types of cleaner, near the projector.
Do not have rubber or plastic products touching the projector for a long time. They will leave
marks on the finish. If cleaning with a chemically treated cloth, be sure to follow the cleaning
product’s safety instructions.
Disposal
This product contains the following material which is harmful to human bodies and
environment.
•
Mercury, which is used in the lamp.
To dispose of used lamps, consult your local environment authorities for regulations.
Ceiling mounting the projector
We want you to have a pleasant experience using your projector, so we need to bring this
safety matter to your attention to prevent damage to person and property.
If you intend to mount your projector on the ceiling, we strongly recommend that you use a
proper fitting projector ceiling mount kit and that you ensure it is securely and safely installed.
If you use an inappropriate projector ceiling mount kit, there is a safety risk that the projector
may fall from the ceiling due to an improper attachment through the use of the wrong
gauge or length screws.
You can purchase a projector ceiling mount kit from the place you purchased your
projector. We recommend that you also purchase a separate Kensington lock compatible
security cable and attach it securely to both the Kensington lock slot on the projector and
the base of the ceiling mount bracket. This will perform the secondary role of restraining the
projector should its attachment to the mounting bracket become loose.

Positioning your projector
Choosing a location
Your projector is designed to be installed in one of four possible installation locations:
1. Floor in front of screen;
2. Ceiling in front of screen;
3. Floor at rear of screen; or
4. Ceiling at rear of screen.
Your room layout or personal preference will dictate which installation location you select.
Take into consideration the size and position of your screen, the location of a suitable power
outlet, as well as the location and distance between the projector and the rest of your
equipment.
1. Floor front:
Select this location with the projector placed
near the floor in front of the screen. This is the
most common way to position the projector
for quick setup and portability.
3. Floor rear:
Select this location with the projector placed
near the floor behind the screen.
Note that a special rear projection screen is
required.
*Set Floor Rear after you turn the projector on.
2. Ceiling Front:
Select this location with the projector
suspended from the ceiling in front of the
screen.
Purchase an appropriate projector ceiling
mounting kit from your dealer to mount your
projector on the ceiling.
*Set Ceiling Front after you turn the projector
on.
4. Ceiling Rear:
Select this location with the projector
suspended from the ceiling behind the
screen.
Note that a special rear projection screen
and a qualified projector ceiling mounting kit
are required for this installation location.
*Set Ceiling Rear after you turn the projector
on.
*To set the projector position:
1. Press MENU on the remote control and then press
highlighted.
2. Press / to highlight Projector Position and press
position is selected.

Obtaining a preferred projected image size
The distance from the projector lens to the screen, the zoom setting, and the video format
each factors in the projected image size.
The projector should always be placed horizontally level (like flat on a table), and positioned
directly perpendicular (90° right-angle square) to the horizontal center of the screen. This
prevents image distortion caused by angled projections (or projecting onto angled surfaces).
If the projector is mounted on a ceiling, it must be mounted upside-down.
This projector is equipped with a movable lens. See "Shifting the projection lens vertically"
below for details. You can see the diagrams on pages 13 and 14 for the vertical offset values
in the dimension tables that are measured when the lens is shifted fully up or down.
If the projector is positioned further away from the screen, the projected image size
increases, and the vertical offset also increases proportionately.
When determining the position of the screen and projector, you will need to account for both
the projected image size and the vertical offset dimension, which are directly proportional to
the projection distance.
We have provided separate tables of dimensions for both 16:9 and 4:3 screen ratios to assist
you in determining the ideal location for your projector. There are two dimensions to
consider, the perpendicular horizontal distance from the center of the screen (projection
distance), and the vertical offset height of the projector from the horizontal edge of the
screen (offset).
Shifting the projection lens vertically
The vertical lens shift control provides flexibility for installing your projector. It allows the
projector to be positioned slightly above or below the top level of the projected images.
The lens shift (offset) is expressed as a percentage of the projected image height. It is
measured as an offset from the projected image's vertical center. The projector is equipped
with + 60% and - 40% vertical lens shift. You can shift the projection lens upwards or
downwards within the allowable range depending on your desired image position.
To adjust the vertical position of the projection lens:
1. Press LENS or / (when the OSD menu is not activated)
Color
on the remote control to display the adjustment page.
(Pressing ENTER in the Color > Lens Shift menu performs the
same function.)
2. To raise the projected image, press
on the remote
control.
To lower the projected image, press
on the remote
control.

How to determine the position of the projector for a given screen size
1.
2.
Determine the aspect ratio of your screen, 16:9 or 4:3.
Refer to the table and find the closest match to your screen size in the left columns
labelled "Screen Dimensions". Using this value, look across this row to the right to find the
corresponding average distance from screen value in the column labelled "Average".
This is the projection distance.
3. Decide the exact height of your projector according to the position of your screen and
the adjustable vertical lens shift range.
For example, if you are using an 120-inch, 4:3-aspect-ratio screen, please refer to "4:3
(standard) ratio screen dimension table". The average projection distance is 495 cm.
How to determine the recommended screen size for a given distance
This method can be used for situations where you have purchased this projector and would
like to know what screen size will fit in your room.
The maximum screen size is limited by the physical space available in your room.
1. Determine the aspect ratio of your screen, 16:9 or 4:3.
2. Measure the distance between the projector and where you want to position the
screen. This is the projection distance.
3. Refer to the table and find the closest match to your measurement in the average
distance from screen column labelled "Average". Check that your measured distance is
between the min and max distances listed on either side of the average distance value.
4. Using this value, look across that row to the left to find the corresponding screen
diagonal listed in that row. That is the projected image size of the projector at that
projection distance.
For example, if you have a 16:9-aspect-ratio screen and your measured projection distance
was 4.5m (450cm), please refer to "16:9 (widescreen) ratio screen dimension table". The
closest match in the "Average" column is 449 cm. Looking across this row shows that an 100inch screen is required.
If you place the projector in a different position (to that recommended), you will have to tilt it
down or up to center the image on the screen. In these situations, some image distortion will
occur. Use the Keystone function to correct the distortion. See "Correcting picture distortion"
on page 22 for details.

Positioning your projector
Connecting with video equipment
You can connect the projector to any type of video equipment, such as a VCR, DVD player,
digital tuner, cable or satellite decoder, video game console or digital camera. You can also
connect it to a desktop or laptop PC or Apple Macintosh system. However, it has no built-in
speakers and cannot be connected to audio equipment.
The projector can be connected to multiple video equipment at the same time by using
different cables. All you need to do is select the appropriate input for the projector to display.
Best video quality
The best available video connection method is HDMI. HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia
Interface) supports uncompressed video data transmission between compatible devices like
DTV tuners, DVD players and displays over a single cable. It provides pure digital viewing and
listening experience.
See "Connecting HDMI devices" on page 16 for how to connect the projector to a HDMI
device.
The RGBHV also provides high video quality that transmits Red, Green, Blue, Horizontal and
Vertical sync signals separately on its own conductor.
See "Connecting RGBHV devices" on page 16 for how to connect the projector to a RGBHV
device.
The next best video signal is Component Video (not to be confused with composite Video).
Digital TV tuner and DVD players output Component Video natively, so if available on your
devices, this should be your connection method of choice in preference to (composite)
Video.
See "Connecting component-video devices" on page 16 for how to connect the projector to
a component video device.
Better video quality
The S-Video method provides a better quality analog video than standard composite Video.
If you have both composite Video and S-Video output terminals on your Video source
device, you should elect to use the S-Video option.
Least video quality
Composite Video is an analog video and will result in a perfectly acceptable, but less than
optimal result from your projector, being the least video quality of the available methods
described here.
See "Connecting S-Video or video devices" on page 17 for how to connect the projector to
an S-Video or composite Video device.
Preparations
When connecting a signal source to the projector, be sure to:
1. Turn off all equipment before making any connections.
2. Use only the correct type cables for each source with proper type plugs.
3. Ensure that all cable plugs are firmly fitted to the equipment sockets.
Note that all cables shown in the following connection diagrams may not be supplied with the projector
(See "Shipping contents" on page 5 for details). Most cables are commercially available from electronics
stores.

You need only connect S-Video or composite Video cable from the same device, never
both at the same time. You should also connect the separate audio cable to a suitable
audio amplifier.
If you have already made a Component Video connection between the projector and the video source
device, you need not connect to this device again using an S-Video or composite Video connection as
this makes an unnecessary second connection of poorer picture quality. You need only connect using a
composite Video connection if both Component Video and S-Video are not supplied on the video
source device (for example, with some analog video cameras).

If the selected video image is not displayed after the projector is turned on and the correct video source
has been selected, please check that the video source device is turned on and operating correctly. Also
check that the signal cables have been connected correctly.
Many laptops do not turn on their external video ports when connected to a projector. Usually a key
combination like Fn + F3 or CRT/LCD key turns the external display on/off. Locate a function key labeled
CRT/LCD or a function key with a monitor symbol on the laptop. Press Fn and the labeled function key
simultaneously. Refer to your laptop’s documentation to discover your laptop’s key combination.

Adjusting the projection angle
There are four adjuster feet on the bottom of the projector. These
can be used if necessary to change the projection angle. Screw
the feet in or out as appropriate to aim and level the projection
angle.
If the screen and the projector are not perpendicular to each other, the
projected image becomes vertical trapezoidal. To correct this problem, see "Correcting picture
distortion" on page 22 for details.
Correcting picture distortion
Keystoning occurs when the projector is not perpendicular to the screen and is where the
projected picture displays visible as a trapezoid shape like either of the following:
•
•
Two parallel sides (left and right, or top and bottom) but is noticeably wider on either
side.
No parallel sides.
To correct the picture's shape, you can perform the following steps.
1. Adjust the projection angle. Move the projector to be in front of the center of the screen
with the base of the lens level with the top or bottom edge of the screen.

*About color temperatures:
There are many different shades that
are considered to be "white" for various
purposes. One of the common
methods of representing white color is
known as the “color temperature”. A
white color with a low color
temperature appears to be reddish
white. A white color with a high color
temperature appears to have more
blue in it.
Setting a preferred color temperature
To set a preferred color temperature:
1. Highlight Color Temperature and select User 1, User 2, or
User 3 by pressing / on the remote control.
2. Press to highlight Color Temperature User_ Fine Tuning

Color Management
In most installation situations, color management will not be necessary, such as in classroom,
meeting room, or lounge room situations where lights remain on, or where building external
windows allow daylight into the room.
Only in permanent installations with controlled lighting levels such as boardrooms, lecture
theaters, or home theaters, should color management be considered. Color management
provides fine color control adjustment to allow for more accurate color reproduction, should
you require it.
Proper color management can only be achieved under controlled and reproducible
viewing conditions. You will need to use a colorimeter (color light meter), and provide a set of
suitable source images to measure color reproduction. These tools are not provided with the
projector, however, your projector supplier should be able to provide you with suitable
guidance, or even an experienced professional installer.
The Color Management provides six sets (RGBCMY) of colors to be adjusted to favorite colors.
When you select each color, you can independently adjust its color range and saturation
according to your preference.
To adjust and store the settings:

Saturation is the amount of that color in a video picture. Lower settings
produce less saturated colors; a setting of “0” removes that color from
the image entirely. If the saturation is too high, that color will be

Adjusting contrast ratio via IRIS
The contrast ratio is the measurement of the difference between the brightest whites and the
darkest blacks a display can show. This projector has a very high contrast ratio which can
reveal subtle color detail not possible with projectors which have a lower contrast ratio. You
can adjust the contrast level to allow for ambient lighting levels within the room which may
affect color detail. Make sure Dynamic Black in the Color menu is set to "On" before you can
adjust the contrast ratio.
To manually adjust the contrast ratio,

Selecting the aspect ratio
The "aspect ratio" is the ratio of the image width to the image height. Digital TV is usually in
16:9 ratio, which is the default for this projector, and most analog TV signals and DVDs are in
4:3 ratio.
With the advent of digital signal processing, digital display devices like this projector can
dynamically stretch and scale the image output to a different aspect than that of the image
input source. Images can be stretched in a linear manner so the whole of the image is
stretched equally, or non-linearly, which distorts the image.
To change the projected picture ratio (no matter what aspect
the source is):
•
Using the remote control
Press one of the aspect ratio buttons to suit the format of the
video signal and your display requirements.
•
Using the OSD menu
1.
Press MENU and then press / until the Display menu is
highlighted.
Press to highlight Aspect Ratio.
Press / to select an aspect ratio to suit the format of the
video signal and your display requirements.

About the aspect ratio
1.
2.
3.
Anamorphic (ANA): Scales an image so that it is displayed in
the center of the screen with a 16:9 aspect ratio. This setting
stretches and resizes linearly, except that it treats the vertical
16:9 picture
and horizontal dimensions independently. It stretches the
height of the source image until it reaches the full projected
height, and stretches the width of the source image until it
reaches the full projected width. This may alter the
projected aspect, depending upon the original aspect of
the source image. Anamorphic is most suitable for images
which are already in a 16:9 aspect, like high definition TV, as it displays them without
aspect alteration.
4:3: Scales a picture so that it is displayed in the center of the
screen with a 4:3 aspect ratio. This is most suitable for 4:3
pictures like computer monitors, standard definition TV and
4:3 picture
4:3 aspect DVD movies, as it displays them without aspect
alteration.
Letter Box (LB): Scales a picture to fit the projector’s native
resolution in its horizontal width and resize the picture’s
height to the 3/4 of the projection width. This may produce a
16:9 picture
picture greater in height than can be displayed, so part of
the picture is lost (not displayed) along the top and bottom
edges of the projection. This is suitable for the display of
movies which are presented in letter box format (with black
bars on the top and bottom).
Letter Box
format picture
4.
5.
Wide: Stretches the picture horizontally in a non-linear
manner, that is, the edges of the picture are stretched more
than the center of the picture to prevent distortion of the
4:3 picture
central part of the picture. This is suitable for occasions
where you want to stretch the width of a 4:3 aspect picture
to the width of a 16:9 aspect screen. It does not alter the
height. Some widescreen movies have been produced with
their width squashed down to the width of a 4:3 aspect, and
are best viewed when restretched back to their original width using this setting.
Real: This setting displays the image in a one-to-one pixel
mapping without alteration or resize in the centre of the
projection. This is most suitable for use with PC and RGBHD
4:3 picture
source inputs.
The black portions are inactive areas and the white portions are active
areas. OSD menus can be displayed on those unused black areas.

Using the projector
Using anamorphic lenses (optional)
Anamorphic lenses allow you to convert 16:9 projectors to the full 2.35:1 aspect ratio of most
of major motion pictures, showing the best movies without letterbox bars at top and bottom
of images while increasing resolution by 33% and brightness by 20%.

Additional information
Care of the projector
Your projector needs little maintenance. The only thing you have to do on a regular basis is
keep the lens clean and clean or replace the air filter. Never remove any parts of the
projector except the lamp or the air filter. Contact your dealer or local service centre if the
projector fails to operate as expected.
Cleaning the lens
Clean the lens whenever you notice dirt or dust on the surface. Before you attempt to clean
the lens, turn the projector off, unplug the power cable, and leave it several minutes to cool
completely.
1. Use a canister of compressed air to remove dust. (Available from building hardware or
photographic suppliers.)
2. If there is stubborn dirt or smudge marks, use a proper photographic lens brush or
moisten a clean soft lens cloth with lens cleaner to gently wipe the lens surface.
Never touch the lens with your finger or rub the lens with abrasive materials. Even paper towels can
damage the lens coating. Only ever use a proper photographic lens brush, cloth, and cleaning solution.
Do not attempt to clean the lens while the projector is switched on or is still hot from previous use.
Cleaning the projector case
Before you attempt to clean the case, turn the projector off, unplug the power cable, and
leave it several minutes to cool completely.
1. To remove dirt or dust, wipe the case with a soft, dry, lint-free cloth.
2. To remove stubborn dirt or stains, moisten a soft cloth with water and a neutral
detergent. Then wipe the case.
Never use wax, alcohol, benzene, thinner or other chemical detergents. These can damage the case.
Storing the projector
If you need to store the projector for an extended time, please:
1. Make sure the temperature and humidity of the storage area are within the
recommended range for the projector. Please refer to the Spec. page in this manual or
consult your dealer about the range.
2. Retract the adjuster feet.
3. Remove the batteries from the remote control.
4. Pack the projector in its original packing or equivalent.
Transporting the projector
It is recommended that you ship the projector with its original packing or equivalent. When
you carry the projector yourself, please use a soft carry case.
Cleaning and replacing the dust filter
The message to the right displays periodically every
500 hours use. You can also use the Setup > Dust Filter
> Dust Filter Hours menu or the Information > Dust
Filter Hours menu to check how long the filter has
been used. If the filter is not cleaned, it can become
clogged with dust and prevent proper ventilation.
This can cause overheating and a malfunction of the
