Precautions
Safety Instructions
1
Check that the operating voltage of your unit is identical with the
voltage of your local power supply.
2
Should any liquid or solid object fall into the cabinet, unplug the
unit and have it checked by the qualified personnel before
operating it further.
3
Do not place the projector on an unstable stand or table.
4
Unplug the unit from the wall socket if it is not to be used for
several days.To disconnect the cord, pull it out by the plug. Never
pull the cord itself.
5
The wall socket should be near the unit and easily accessible.
6
Do not place the projector where the cord can be stepped on as
this may result in fraying or damage to the lead or the plug. Be
alert to tripping hazards.
7
Never look into the projector lens when the lamp is switched on as
the bright light can damage your eyes. Never let children look into
the lens when it is on.
8
Do not place your hand or objects near the ventilation holes. The
air coming out is hot.
9
Never open any covers on the projector except the lamp cover.
Dangerous electrical voltages inside the projector can cause severe
injury. Except as specifically directed in this Instruction Manual, do
not attempt to service this product yourself. Refer all servicing to
qualified service personnel.
10 Unplug the projector from the wall socket before cleaning. Use a
damp cloth for cleaning the projector housing. Do not use liquid
or aerosol cleaners.

Getting the most out of your
projector
The projector has a full set of features that allow you to control the
settings for video, audio, power management, display parameters, and
much more. To derive the greatest utility from your projector, read this
section for a quick summary of the important features.
Remote Controller
The buttons on the Remote Controller allow direct and immediate
control of the most commonly used features including source selection,
keystone adjustment, volume control, image freeze-frame, zoom,
screen blanking, audio muting and power control. Remote Controller
buttons can also be used for advanced functions and to access the
projector's menu system.
Auto Off Mode
The auto off mode conserves electricity by automatically turning off
the lamp if the projector does not receive input signal for a specified
period (30 minutes). In the auto off mode, the lamp is turned off,
conserving electricity, cooling the projector and extending the life of
the lamp. Use the Power button on either the Remote Controller or the
Projector Control Panel to turn the projector on again if it has powered
off.
Control Panel
The control panel buttons on the top of projector offer access to
advanced functions, such as adjusting the brightness and contrast for
computer images.

is the native resolution of the projector.) However, you can connect the
projector to a computer source capable of displaying VGA (640 x 480),
SVGA (800 x 600), XGA (1024 x 768) or SXGA (1280 x 1024) resolutions.
The projector will resize VGA, XGA, and SXGA inputs for SVGA
projection. The types of computers supported by this projector include
IBM, Macintosh and Apple compatible laptop or desktop PCs (PC
compatibles).

You can connect the projector to almost any common video sourceVHS player, DVD player, camcorder, laser disc player or any other
compatible video image source. The projector can accept composite,
component, or S-Video signals:
•
Composite video is characterized by a single-pin "RCA-type" video
jack, usually colored yellow.
•
Component video (YCbCr) is less common and features three
"RCA-type" video jacks, typically colored green, blue and red.
•
S-Video is readily identified by a single connector with four small
pins.
•
Component video (YPbPr) is characterized by D-SUB plug to " RCAtype" video jacks, typically colored green blue and red.
You can connect the projector simultaneously to composite,
component, S-Video and YPbPr/HDTV sources. You can select which
video source to project using the control panel or remote controller. If
the Auto Search feature is ON (see later sections of this manual), the
projector will automatically detect and select a source. The projector
supports NTSC, PAL and SECAM video formats. The projector will
automatically detect and identify the video format. Note, however,
whereas the projector can accept multiple simultaneous sources it can
only accept one video format at a time.

Maintenance
The projector needs little maintenance. You should keep the lens clean
as dust, dirt or spots will project on the screen and diminish image
quality. You will also need to clean the air filter located at the bottom
of the projector periodically. It is important to keep the air filter clean
because a clogged air filter prevents proper ventilation which is
necessary to cool the projector and prevent it from overheating. The
only part you should replace yourself are the lamp and the air filter. If
any other parts need replacing, contact your dealer or qualified service
personnel. When cleaning any part of the projector, always switch off
and unplug the projector first.
Warning: Never open any of the covers on the projector
except the lamp and air filter covers. Dangerous electrical
voltages inside the projector can cause severe injury.
Except as specifically indicated in this Instruction Manual,
do not attempt to service this product yourself. Refer all
servicing to qualified service personnel.
Cleaning the Lens
Clean the lens whenever you notice dirt or dust on the surface. Wipe
the lens surface gently with a soft, dry, lint-free cloth. To remove dirt or
stains on the lens, moisten a soft cloth with water and a neutral
detergent and gently wipe the lens surface.
Cleaning the Projector Housing
To clean the projector housing, first unplug the power cable. To
remove dirt or dust, wipe the housing with a soft, dry, lint-free cloth.
To remove stubborn dirt or stains, moisten a soft cloth with water and
a neutral detergent. Then wipe the housing. Do not use alcohol,
benzene, thinners or other chemical detergents as these can cause
damage to the housing.
Cleaning the Air Filter
The air filter, which is located at the bottom of the projector, should be
cleaned after every 100 hours of use. If it is not cleaned periodically, it
can become clogged with dust and prevent the projector from being
ventilated properly. This can cause overheating and damage the
projector.

6

Note: Be sure that the projector is stable after turning it over.

direction as shown illustration.
Replacing the Lamp
The projector lamp used for the light source has a certain life. It is time
to replace them lamp when:
•
The lamp dims, the projected image gets darker or starts to
deteriorate.
•
The projector lamp LED indicator turns to red (See page 14).
Caution: The lamp becomes high temperature after turning off
the projector with the power button. If you touch the lamp, you
may scald your finger. When you replace the lamp, wait for at
