Allowable Storage Temperature range : –10 °C to +60 °C
• Any room in which there is cigarette smoke or grease
Even where smoke and grease levels are minimal, prolonged
exposure will affect this unit. This unit emits heat and optical
components are cooled down by taking in large amount of air.
The optical path may be soiled by grease/dirt, thus causing images to become dark or color projection to deteriorate. When
soiling on the optical components occurs, removal of grease/dirt
totally will not be possible.
This unit uses a light-source lamp which reaches high temperature when projecting. Please do not use it in the following ways. Doing so may cause fire or malfunction of the unit.
• Projecting the image while the unit is on its side
• Projecting images outside the specified angle
Do not use this unit by setting it beyond ±5° horizontally (left/
right) or ±25° vertically (up/down). This may cause color variation or shorten the lamp life.
• Projecting images at places where the air inlets and exhaust
vents are blocked

About Lamp Replacement
● If this unit is installed in a constricted place, attempting to replace the lamp in that place may cause injury. Move this unit
to a place large enough to perform the work.
● Use only genuine replacement parts for the lamp unit. Otherwise, malfunction may occur. Also, never attempt to re-use an
old lamp unit. This may cause marked performance deterioration or lamp blowout, thus leading to unit malfunction.
Broken pieces of the lamp outside this unit may also cause injuries during lamp unit exchange.
● Do not replace the lamp immediately after this unit has been used. The temperature of the lamp unit is still high and this
may cause a burn. Allow a cooling period of 1 hour or more before replacement.
● Before replacing the lamp unit, pull out the power plug from the outlet while the [STAND BY] indicator is still on. Replacing
a lamp with the plug connected to the outlet may cause injuries or electric shocks.
Procedure for Lamp Replacement
1 Loosen the screws and remove the lamp
cover
● Loosen the 2 screws with a ª screwdriver.

4 Insert the new lamp unit until it is fully in
Caution
Do not touch the glass surface of the lamp directly with
your hand or stain it. Touching it with a bare hand may
dirty the surface, hence shortening the lamp life, causing
marked performance deterioration such as darkened
screens, lamp blowout as well as malfunction.
5 Tighten the screws of the lamp unit and
close the handle
● Fasten the 2 screws with a ª screwdriver.
6 Attach
the lamp cover and fasten the
screws
● Fasten the 2 screws with a ª screwdriver.
Note
When fitting the lamp cover, insert the left end (with 2 claws)
of the lamp cover into the unit, followed by ensuring that
the protruding part on the reverse side of the lamp cover
fits snugly into the hole of the unit.
As this protrusion acts as a switch, misfitting may lead to
failure in turning on the power.
