Important Safety
When using your video equipment, basic safety precautions should always be followed, including the following:
1. Read and understand all instructions before using.
2. Position the cord so that it will not be tripped over, pulled,
or contact hot surfaces.
3. If an extension cord is necessary, a cord with a current rating
at least equal to that of the appliance should be used. Cords
rated for less amperage than the appliance may overheat.
4. To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not disassemble this
appliance. Contact an authorized service dealer when repair
work is required. Incorrect reassembly can cause electric
shock when the appliance is used subsequently.
5. The use of an accessory attachment not recommended
by the manufacturer may cause a risk of fire, electric shock,
or injury to persons.

Operating The Mask
Adjusting The Mask Extension
When you lower or retract a mask, it will stop at its present limit.
If an obstacle (such as a person or furniture) gets in the path of a
mask as it is lowered, you should use the switch control to stop
the mask's motion; it will not automatically stop if it hits an
obstacle.
CAUTION: Improper adjustment of the limit switches
can cause irreparable damage to a mask itself, resulting
in voiding the factory warranty.
ATTENTION: Un réglage inapproprié des interrupteurs de
fin de course peut endommager de manière irréversible le
masque et entraîner l'annulation de la garantie.
NOTE: The horizontal masking panels move more slowly than
the vertical masking panels. The slower motion allows you to
adjust the image area with greater precision.
When a mask is not in use, you should store it in the fully
retracted position.
CAUTION: Do not operate the motor when any of the
following occurs:
• The unit emits any smoke, heat, abnormal noise
or unusual odor.
The extension and retraction limit switches have been preset
at the factory. In general, we advise you to avoid readjusting
these switches.
In some cases, to enable proper alignment of the displayed
image on the screen, you may need to adjust the extension
of a mask. If adjustment to the extension is necessary, carefully
follow these instructions.
• If any of these situations occur, call a qualified
service person.
WARNING! A mask is fully retracted when the batten
is flush with the bottom of the case. Do not attempt
adjustments with a retraction (UP) limit switch that will
further retract a mask. Incorrect adjustment of that
switch will cause severe mask damage. Please consult the
factory if you have any questions.
• The unit is damaged in some way, such as damage from a
water leak.
ATTENTION: Ne mettez pas le moteur en marche lorsque :
• L'unité émet de la fumée, un bruit anormal, de la chaleur
ou une odeur inhabituelle.
• L'unité est endommagée d'une quelconque façon (ex.
dommage dû à une fuite d'eau).
• Si l'une de ces situations se produisait, appelez un
technicien qualifié.
AVERTISSEMENT! Un masque est complètement rétracté
lorsque la latte est alignée avec le bas du caisson.
N'essayez pas d'effectuer des réglages avec un
interrupteur de fin de course d'enroulement (VERS LE
HAUT) qui causera une rétraction additionnelle d'un
masque. Un réglage incorrect de cet interrupteur peut
endommager sérieusement le masque. Veuillez contacter
l'usine si vous avez des questions.

Adjusting The Mask Extension (Continued)
Modifying the Extension of the Mask
1. You can increase the extension of a mask up to 3" past the
factory preset stop, or you can decrease the extension by
approximately 4-6" from the factory preset stop. Do not
attempt to modify a mask extension beyond these
recommended amounts.

WARNING! The up limit switch(es) retract the batten
further into the unit. Adjusting it is not advised. Refer to 1,
3 or 5 as appropriated in Figure 8.
AVERTISSEMENT! Le(s) interrupteur(s) de fin de course
supérieur(s) rétracte(nt) la latte à l'intérieur de l'unité. Le
réglage n'est pas recommandé. Référez-vous au points 1,
3 ou 5 tel qu'indiqué dans la figure 8.
To Increase a Mask's Fully Extended (Mask Down)
Stop Position:

Figure 8
1. Lower the mask to its current stop position.
2. Locate the down limit switch(es) located on the left side of
the frame. Refer to 2, 4 or 6 as appropriate in Figure 8. Use an
Allen wrench to turn the switch in a counterclockwise
direction. If the power is on, the mask will drop incrementally
as the switch is turned. NOTE: One complete turn of the
switch will make approximately a 1/2" change in the mask's
stop position.
To Decrease the Screen Extension:
1. Lower the mask until it is extended about halfway down.
2. Locate the down limit switch(es) located on the left side of
the frame. Refer to 2, 4 or 6 as appropriate in Figure 8. Use
an Allen wrench to turn the switch in a clockwise direction.
NOTE: One complete turn of the switch will make
approximately a 1/2" change in the mask's stop position.

Screen Care And Cleaning
With reasonable care, you expect many years of trouble-free use
of your Da-Lite projection screen.
We encourage you to keep your screen clean. Avoid getting any
foreign material on the screen. It may not be possible to remove
scratches, paint, ink, etc.
General Maintenance
The screen surface on your Multi-Mask Imager is delicate.
Special attention to these instructions should be followed
when cleaning.
3. Activate the mask in the down direction until it reaches
the newly reduced stop position. Repeat this procedure
until the desired stop position is reached.
• A draftsman-style brush may be used to lightly whisk away
any loose dirt or dust particles. (This type of brush is usually
available at office supply stores.)
Once you have made the adjustment, whenever you lower
the mask, it will automatically stop at the new position.
• For tougher spots, use a mild solution detergent, water and a
soft cloth. Rub lightly. Blot with a damp sponge to absorb
excess water.
Do not use any other cleaning materials on the screen.
Replacement Parts and Service
No user-serviceable parts are contained within the unit.
