NGLISH

Cautions on use

„

In order to get the picture quality

Draw curtains or blinds over windows and turn off any lights near the screen to prevent outside light or light from indoor lamps from shining onto the screen.

Depending on where the projector is used, air exhaust vents or the warm air from air conditioning can cause a shimmering effect on the screen. For this reason, take care not to shield the air exhaust vents and consider the direction of the air flowing from air conditioning.

z

Do not adjust the lens focus in the initial period

(within approx. 30 minutes) after switching the projector on.

„

Do not touch the surface of the projector lens with your bare hand.

If the surface of the lens becomes dirty from fingerprints or anything else, this will be magnified and projected onto the screen. Cover the lens with the lens cap when the projector is not used.

„ z z z z z z z

The projector has a high pressure mercury lamp that is characterised as follows:

The brightness of the lamp will decrease over time.

The lamp may explode or shorten the lamp life by shocks or chipping damage.

In rare cases, it may burst shortly after the first use.

The possibility of its bursting increases when the lamp is used beyond the replacement time.

If the lamp bursts, gas inside the lamp is released in the form of smoke.

The life of a mercury lamp varies according to the individual difference or conditions of use.

In particular, turning the power on and off frequently and/or repeatedly as well as continuous use for

12 hours will greatly affect the life cycle. Provide a lamp for replacement in advance.

„

Connection to external device

When connecting the projector to a computer or external device, use the mains lead supplied with the corresponding device and a commercially available shielded interface cable.

Precautions with regard to safety

„

Optical components

It may be necessary to replace the optical components such as liquid crystal panels and polarizing plates in less than 1 year if using the projector in a high temperature environment or in a very dusty, oily smoke or tobacco smoke environment. For more details, please contact your dealer.

„

Liquid crystal panel

Do not project the same image for long periods of time, as this may remain as an afterimage on the liquid crystal panel. Display the white screen test pattern for more than an hour to remove it. See the functional instructions that is in the provided CD-ROM.

Cleaning and maintenance

„

Ask an Authorised Service Centre to clean the inside of the projector at least once a year.

If dust is left to build up inside the projector without being cleaned out, it can result in fire or problems with operation. It is a good idea to clean the inside of the projector before the season when humid weather arrives.

Ask your nearest Authorised Service Centre to clean the projector when required.

Please discuss with the Authorised Service Centre regarding cleaning costs.

z

Be sure to remove the mains plug from the

z

mains socket before cleaning.

Use soft and dry cloth to clean the cabinet.
