User Maintenance
Cleaning the Projector
Periodically clean the projector exterior, lens, intake vents, and exhaust vents on a regular
basis.
Important!
z Always make sure that the projector has cooled sufficiently before cleaning it. If the
projector is turned on, perform the following steps before cleaning it.
1
2
3
Turn off the projector.
Check to make sure that the POWER/STANDBY indicator has changed to amber.
Unplug the power cord from the power outlet, and allow the projector to cool
down for about 60 minutes.
Cleaning the Projector Exterior
Wipe the exterior of the projector with a soft cloth that has been moistened in a weak
solution of water and a mild neutral detergent. Be sure to wring all excess moisture from
the cloth before wiping.
Never use benzene, alcohol, thinner, or any other volatile agent for cleaning.
Cleaning the Lens
Carefully wipe the lens with a commercially available lens cloth or optical lens paper, like
those for eyeglasses or camera lenses. When cleaning the lens, be very careful to avoid
scratching it.
Cleaning Intake and Exhaust Vents
Dust and dirt tend to collect around the intake vents located on the back and both sides
of the projector. Because of this, you should use a vacuum cleaner to clean away
accumulated dust and dirt periodically as shown below.
25
Important!
z Continued use of the projector after dust has accumulated around the intake vents
can cause overheating of internal components and lead to malfunction.
z Certain operating conditions also can cause dirt and dust to accumulate around the
projector's exhaust vents on the front. If this happens, use the same procedure as
that described above to clean the exhaust vents.
Replacing the Lamp
Caution
Continued use of a lamp that has passed its lamp life increases the risk of the lamp
rupturing. Replace the lamp with a new one as soon as possible after the replacement
message appears.
z The light source lamp is a consumable item. The average life of a lamp is approximately
2000 hours. After 2000 hours, a message appears to alert you to the need of lamp
replacement. However, note that the characteristics of a particular lamp or lamp operating
conditions can cause the lamp to start to go dim or even fail before the message
appears.
To check the current lamp use time

When to replace the lamp
The LAMP indicator starts to flash red and the message shown below appears whenever
the lamp time exceeds 2000 hours.
It is time to replace the lamp. Use the procedure in the User’s Guide to replace the lamp as soon as possible.
When this message appears, replace the lamp as soon as possible using the procedure
under “Replacing the Lamp” on page 27.
Note that the above message will disappear about 10 seconds after you turn on the
projector, even if you do not replace the lamp.
You will be able to continue using the projector without replacing the lamp until the lamp
time reaches 100 hours. At that time, the LAMP indicator will stop flashing and remain lit
red, the following message will appear for about 10 seconds, and then the projector will
turn off automatically.
The lamp has exceeded its service life! The projector will not turn on until you replace the lamp.
When this message appears, replace the lamp immediately using the procedure under
“Replacing the Lamp” on page 27.
26
Replacing the Lamp
Important!
z The lamp originally installed in this projector is model SP-LAMP-035, which is
intended for tabletop (non-inverted) use. Do not use this lamp in ceiling mounted
(inverted) applications. For ceiling mount (inverted) application, use lamp model SPLAMP-036 instead, which is specifically designed for that purpose. Use of the wrong
lamp will significantly reduce lamp life and void the lamp warranty (and if use of the
wrong lamp results in damage to the projector, it will also void the projector
warranty).
z You can order new lamps from www.infocus.com (in select areas), your retailer or
your dealer.
Caution
z During normal use, the lamp and the area around it become extremely hot. Before
replacing the lamp, turn off the projector and wait for the cool down operation
(indicated when the POWER/STANDBY indicator is flashing amber) to finish. Next,
disconnect the AC power cord from the projector, and wait for at least 60 minutes to
allow it to cool down even further.
Touching the lamp or the area around it during operation or immediately after turning
off the projector creates the risk of serious burn injury.
z Only InFocus lamps are tested and certified for use in this projector. InFocus is not
liable for the performance, safety or certification of any other lamps. The use of other
lamps may cause electrical shock and fire and violates the projector warranty and
voids all certification marks on this projector.
z See the safety instructions booklet for important safety information about ceiling
mounting this projector.
z A mercury lamp with high internal pressure is used as the light source. A lamp that
is weakened by impact, damage, or expiration of its lamp life may explode or fail to
light if exposed to loud noise. Note that lamp life differs greatly from lamp to lamp,
and is affected by conditions under which the lamp is used.
z Never touch the glass of the lamp with your fingers. Doing so can cause the lamp to
rupture and shorten its life.
z A broken lamp can cause glass fragments to be scattered inside the lamp housing.
Gas inside of the lamp housing may also be discharged from the projector’s vent
exhaust ports. Gas inside of the lamp includes mercury, so be sure to ventilate the
area whenever the lamp breaks. Should you accidentally inhale gas fumes or should
gas fumes get into your eyes, immediately contact a physician.
z Should the lamp break, take care to avoid personal injury on the glass fragments.
Never try to replace a broken lamp on your own. Contact ASK Proxima service
(www.infocus.com) to request a replacement.
Warning
Hg - Lamp contains mercury. Manage in accordance with local
disposal laws. See www.lamprecycle.org.

Remote Controller Range
The allowable distance between the remote controller and the projector is less when there
is a sharp angle between the remote controller and the remote control signal receiver.
Important!
To avoid running down the battery, store the remote control unit so its buttons are not
pressed inadvertently.
31
Connecting to a Component Video Output Device
Some video devices are equipped with a component video output terminal. You can use an
optionally available VESA to component video adapter (SP-VESA-ADPT-R) and a
component video cable to connect the RGB input terminal of the projector to the component
video output terminal of a video device.
Important!
Always turn off the projector and the video device before connecting them.
z Component video output terminals come in 3-terminal sets: Y·Cb·Cr or Y·Pb·Pr. Be sure to
match the colors of the plugs on the optional adapter with the colors of the terminals
(Green: Y; Blue: Cb/Pb; Red: Cr/Pr).
z Note that connection only to an analog component video output terminal is supported.
Connection to a digital output terminal is not supported.
32
Full-screen Display of an RGB Image
The projector outputs images using XGA (1024 pixels × 768 pixels) video resolution. When
the input signal from the computer connected to the projector is not an XGA signal,
“Resize Image To Fit” automatically enlarges or reduces the image so it matches the
projector’s video resolution and fills the entire screen. The following shows how different
input signals from a computer are adjusted during projection.
Input Signal Example
Projected Image
800 × 600
1024 × 768
1280 × 1024
When the input signal has a resolution of 1280
× 1024 (aspect ratio: 5:4), the original image is
compressed so it conforms to the projection
resolution of 1024 × 768 (aspect ratio: 4:3).
Because of this, the projected image may
appear slightly wider horizontally than the
original image.
33
Reattaching the Lens Cover
Use the following procedure to replace the lens cover if it should accidentally become
detached from the projector.
1
Insert the nub (‘) of the left tab of the lens cover into the depression () of the
tab under the lens.
z When performing the above step, make sure that the lens cover is open to 90 degrees in
relation to the front of the Data Projector.
2
Keeping the left nub (‘) in the left depression (), gently press the lens cover
towards the right as you insert the nub (’) of the right lens cover tab into the
depression () of the right tab under the lens.
z Do not apply undue force to the lens cover when performing the above step. Pressing too
strongly can damage the tabs of the lens cover.
Press here with a pen or
similarly pointed object as
you slide the cover into
place.
