Precautions with regard to safety

CAUTIONS

Do not cover the air inlet port or the air outlet port.

Doing so may cause the projector to overheat, which can cause fire or damage to the projector.

Do not place the projector in narrow, badly ventilated places such as closets or bookshelves.

Do not place the projector on cloth or papers, as these materials could be drawn into the air inlet port.

Do not mix old and new batteries.

If the batteries are inserted incorrectly, they may explode or leak, and fire, injury or contamination of the battery compartment and surrounding area may result.

Do not set up the projector in humid or dusty places or in places where the projector may come into contact with oily smoke or steam.

Using the projector under such conditions may result in fire, electric shocks or plastic deterioration. The plastic deterioration may cause the falling down of the projector which is mounted in the ceiling.

When disconnecting the power cord, hold the plug, not the cord.

If the power cord itself is pulled, the cord will become damaged, and fire, short-circuits or serious electric shocks may result.

Always disconnect all cables before moving the projector.

Moving the projector with cables still attached can damage the cables, which could cause fire or electric shocks to occur.

Do not put your weight on this projector.

You could fall or the projector could break, and injury may result.

Be especially careful not to let young children stand or sit on the projector.

If not using the projector for an extended period of time, disconnect the power cord plug from the wall outlet.

If dust builds up on the power cord plug, the resulting humidity may damage the insulation, which could result in fire.

Disconnect the power cord plug from the wall outlet as a safety precaution before carrying out any cleaning.

Electric shocks can result if this is not done.

Do not place any heavy objects on top of the projector.

Failure to observe this may cause the projector to become unbalanced and fall, which could result in damage or injury.

Do not short-circuit, heat or disassemble the batteries or place them into water or fire.

Failure to observe this may cause the batteries to overheat, leak, explode or catch fire, and burns or other injury may result.

If the lamp has broken, ventilate the room immediately. Do not touch or bring your face close to the broken pieces.

Failure to observe this may cause the user to absorb the gas which was released when the lamp broke and which contains nearly the same amount of mercury as fluorescent lamps, and the broken pieces may cause injury.

If you believe that you have absorbed the gas or that the gas has got into your eyes or mouth, seek medical advice immediately.

Ask your dealer about the replacement of the lamp unit and check the inside of the projector.

When inserting the batteries, make sure the polarities (+ and -) are correct.

If the batteries are inserted incorrectly, they may explode or leak, and fire, injury or contamination of the battery compartment and surrounding area may result.

Ask an Authorized Service Center to clean inside 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 for humid weather arrives. Ask your nearest Authorized Service Center to clean the projector when required. Please discuss with the

Authorized Service Center regarding cleaning costs.

Use only the specified batteries.

If incorrect batteries are used, they may explode or leak, and fire, injury or contamination of the battery compartment and surrounding area may result.

We are constantly making efforts to preserve and maintain a clean environment. Please take non repairable units back to your dealer or a recycling company.

Before use

Cautions on use

In order to get the best picture quality

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

Do not touch the surfaces of the lens with your bare hands.

If the surface of the lens becomes dirty from fingerprints or anything else, this will be magnified and projected onto the screen. Moreover, when not using the projector, cover it with the lens cover.

Screen

Do not apply any volatile substances which may cause discoloration to the screen, and do not let it become dirty or damaged.

Lamp

The lamp may need to be replaced earlier due to variables such as individual lamp characteristics, usage conditions and the installation environment, especially when the projector is subjected to continuous use for more than 10 hours or the power is frequently turned on and off.

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.

The liquid crystal panel of the projector is built with very high precision technology to provide fine picture details. Occasionally, a few stuck pixels may appear on the screen as fixed points of blue, green or red.

Please note that this does not affect the performance of your LCD.
