To reduce blurring and noise
If you adjust the [Pixel Phase] after adjusting [Pixel Tracking], it is easier to find the optimum point at which there is
minimum blurring or noise.
When adjusting [Pixel Tracking], the point at which the vertical belt of noise disappears when you display the [Quit
Windows] screen from the Windows 95/98/2000 Start Menu or the checkered pattern, is the optimum adjustment value.
When adjusting the [Pixel Phase], the point at which the horizontal blurring or noise disappears when you display the [Quit
Windows] screen from the Windows 95/98/2000 Start Menu or the checkered pattern, is the optimum adjustment value.
When automatically adjusting the position
• The horizontal position, vertical position, picture width and picture blurring are adjusted automatically.
• This adjustment will be executed when the following operations are performed.
1) when the power is turned on and the lamp lights
2) when the type of input source signal is changed while the lamp is on
3) when the input selector button is pressed while the lamp is on.
4) when the AUTO button is pressed while the lamp is on.
• The [Auto Setting] message is displayed on the screen during automatic adjustment.
• The picture may appear distorted during automatic adjustment, but this is not a malfunction.
• Correct adjustment may fail to be performed due to the input signal and input image from the PC. In this case, adjust
manually.
• Adjust the position automatically when you have a bright projected image.
Adjustment is only possible when the input source is set. It cannot be performed when there is no signal. ([NO SIGNAL]
is displayed.)

Maintenance and Care
About the ventilation holes
• If the ventilation holes become blocked, the temperature inside the projector rises and the lamp will fail to light. Clean the
ventilation holes about once every 6 months. Cleaning will be required more frequently if used in a particularly dusty
environment.
• When the air filter of the ventilation hole becomes hard to clean, it is ready to be changed. Purchase a new air filter (with
the filter holder).
Cleaning the ventilation holes
1
Unplug the power cable from
the socket.
Replacing the air filter

Maintenance and Care (continued)
Care of the cabinet
Wipe lightly with a soft, dry cloth. If the cabinet is very dirty, wipe with a cloth that has been soaked in neutral detergent
diluted with water and wrung out well. Finish with a dry cloth.
Care of the lens
Clean the lens with a commercially available blower or cleaning paper. Use of tissues, etc. may damage the lens. As the
surface of the lens is easily damaged, do not rub or hit with anything hard.
Changing Lamp
• When the lamp reaches the end of its service life, the image becomes dark and the colors lose their vividness. When this
happens, change the lamp unit.
• When the “Approaching Recommended Lamp Life!” message appears, change the lamp unit.
• After removing the old lamp unit, handle with care to avoid breakage. Dispose of as industrial waste.
• Be sure to initialize the lamp timer after changing the lamp unit.
WARNING
• Do not remove any screws other than those specified ( mark).
The high voltage and high temperature inside the projector may lead to electric shock or burns if touched.
• When changing the lamp unit, be sure to replace with a new lamp unit. Use of a used or second-hand lamp unit may lead
to breakage or failure of the lamp.
Changing the Lamp

PC Output Signal
The projector has been designed with the RGB signals listed on page 35 in mind. Depending on your PC, the RGB signals
output may be different from the design values. In particular, when the internal LCD panel of the notebook PC and external
CRT are set on simultaneous display, the RGB signal output may be outside the compatible range. In this case, it may not be
possible to display the image normally. Set the PC to “external CRT only” display mode.

• No image may appear even if the resolution and frequency mentioned above are the same.
• PC display mode
When an image signal is input from a PC, the projector automatically selects the mode (resolution and frequency)
and projects the picture according to that mode.
The projector fundamentally conforms to VESA (Video Electronics Standards Association) standards, but depending on the type of PC, a non-VESA signal may be output. In such cases, the projected image will not be correctly
displayed, the overall picture will be blue in color, and the [NO SIGNAL] message will be displayed on the screen.
In this case, reset the image signal from the PC to another compatible mode. For details, refer to the above table
and the instruction manual for the PC.
