Colour mode function
Brightness Control
The following six preset colour modes are provided so that you can easily
obtain the optimum images simply by selecting the image quality.
In addition, if projecting onto blackboards rather than projection screens in
places such as schools, you can select the "Blackboard" setting to allow
images to be projected in their natural tints.
sp.43, p.51, p.53
The brightness of the lamp can be set to one of two settings.
Fine and clear images can be obtained even in a bright room like a
conference room and a classroom.
If projecting images in a dark room or onto a small screen and the images are
too bright, change the setting to "Low".
Merit of "Low"
• Reduction in power consumption of approximately 20%
• Reduction in operating noise of approximately 17%
• Approximately 1.5 times longer lamp life

Features of the Projector
Easy to Operate
The accessory remote control can be used to carry out operations such as
pausing projection (Freeze function sp.47), zooming in on important parts
of images (E-Zoom function sp.48) and pointing out important parts of
images using a pointer icon (Pointer function sp.49).
In addition, the remote control can be used to move the pointer around on the
computer screen during projection (see "Wireless Mouse Function"
sp.20).
Password protect function assists administration
and theft prevention
Password protection function allows you to limit using and changing the
settings of the projector. This means that the projector cannot be used if it is
taken without authorisation, and thus serves as a theft-prevention feature.

CAUTION
When connecting the projector to a computer, be sure to check the
following.
• Turn off the power for both the projector and the computer before
connecting them. If the power for either device is on at the time of
connection, damage may result.
• Check the shapes of the cable connectors and the device ports before
making the connections. If you try to force a connector to fit a device
port with a different shape or number of terminals, damage to the
connector or port may result.
• Do not bind the power cable and the connecting cable together. If the
power cable and the connecting cable are bound together, image
interference or errors in operation may result.
18
Eligible Computers
The projector cannot be connected to some types of computer, or
projection of images may not be possible even if actual connection is
possible. Make sure that the computer you intend to use satisfies the
conditions given below.
• Condition 1: The computer must have an image signal output port.
Check that the computer has a port such as an "RGB port", "monitor port"
or "CRT port" which can output image signals.
If the computer has a built-in monitor, or if using a laptop computer, it
may not be possible to connect the computer to the projector, or
alternatively you may need to purchase a separate external output port.
Refer to the documentation for your computer under a heading such as
"Connecting an external monitor" or similar for further details.
• Condition 2: The display resolution and frequency of the computer
must be listed in the "List of Supported Monitor Displays".

being input to the [Computer1/Component Video1] port can be viewed on
an external computer monitor at the same time they are being projected by
the projector, so that the images can be checked at times such as when
giving presentations.
If the images being projected are from a source that is connected to the
[Computer2/Component Video2] port, these images cannot be output to an
external monitor.
Connect the external monitor using the cable that is provided with the
monitor.

• Video images cannot be output to an external monitor.
• The setting gauge for keystone correction and the configuration
menus and help menus are not output to the external monitor.
Connecting to a Video Source
CAUTION
When connecting the projector to video equipments, take the
following precautions.
• Turn off the power for both the projector and the video equipments
before connecting them. If the power for either device is on at the
time of connection, damage may result.
• Check the shapes of the cable connectors and the device ports before
making the connections. If you try to force a connector to fit a device
port with a different shape or number of terminals, a malfunction or
damage to the connector or port may result.
• Do not bind the power cable and the connecting cable together. If the
power cable and the connecting cable are bound together, image
interference or errors in operation may result.

Maintenance
This section describes maintenance tasks such as cleaning the projector and
replacing consumable parts.
Cleaning
You should clean the projector if it becomes dirty or if the quality of
projected images starts to deteriorate.
84
Cleaning the Air Filters and Air Intake Vent
If dust collects on the air filter or the air outlet, it can cause the internal
temperature of the projector to rise, and this can lead to problems with
operation and shortening of the optical engine's service life.
It is recommended that you clean these parts at least once every three
months. Clean them more often than this if using the projector in
particularly dusty environments.
CAUTION
Be sure to read the separate Safety Instructions/World-Wide Warranty
Terms before cleaning.
Cleaning the Projector's Surface
Clean the projector's surface by wiping it gently with a soft cloth.
If the projector is particularly dirty, moisten the cloth with water
containing a small amount of neutral detergent, and then firmly wring the
cloth dry before using it to wipe the projector's surface. Then wipe it again
with a soft, dry cloth.
CAUTION
Do not use volatile substances such as wax, alcohol or thinner to
clean the projector's surface. These can cause the projector to warp
and make the coating finish peel off.
Cleaning the Lens
Use a commercially-available air blower, or use a lens cleaning paper to
gently wipe the lens.
CAUTION
Do not rub the lens with harsh materials or subject the lens to shocks,
as it can easily become damaged.
TIP
If the air filters are broken or if the warning message reappears after
they have been cleaned, they should be replaced. Replace with a new
air filter. See "Appendices: Optional Accessories". sp.93
85
Maintenance
Replacing Consumables
TIP
This section describes how to replace the lamp and the air filters.
Lamp Replacement Period
It is time to replace the lamp when:
• The message "Replace the Lamp." appears on the screen when
projection starts.
.
A message will be displayed.
• When the Lamp indicator is flashing orange.
Flashing orange
• The projected image gets darker or starts to deteriorate.
• The lamp replacement message is set to appear after the following
periods of time in order to maintain the initial brightness and quality
of the projected images.
· When used continuously at high brightness: Approx. 1900 hours
· When used continuously at low brightness : Approx. 2900 hours
"Brightness Control" sp.59
• If you continue to use the lamp after this period, the possibility of the
lamp breaking becomes greater. When the lamp replacement
message appears, replace the lamp with a new one as soon as
possible, even if it is still working.
• Depending on the characteristics of the lamp and on the way it has
been used, the lamp may become darker or stop working before the
lamp warning message appears. You should always have a spare
lamp ready in case it is needed.
• Contact your dealer for a spare lamp.
86
Maintenance
Replacing the Lamp
2
Wait until the lamp has cooled down, then remove the
lamp cover from the base of the projector.
It takes approximately one hour for the lamp to cool down by
itself after the cool-down period has finished.
Loosen the lamp cover fixing screw with the screwdriver that is
supplied with the spare lamp (or your own cross head
screwdriver).
Then slide the lamp cover straight forward and lift it to remove.
3
Loosen the two lamp fixing screws.
Loosen the two lamp fixing screws with the screwdriver that is
supplied with the spare lamp (or your own cross head
screwdriver).
CAUTION
• If you are replacing the lamp because it has stopped working, it is
possible that the lamp is broken.
If replacing the lamp of a projector which has been installed on a
ceiling, you should always assume that the lamp is broken and be
extremely careful when removing the lamp cover.
• Wait until the lamp has cooled down sufficiently before removing the
lamp cover. It takes a further one hour after the cool-downg period
has finished for the lamp to be cool enough.
PROCEDURE
1
Turn off the projector's power, wait until the cooldown period has ended and a "pip-pip" confirmation
buzzer sounds, and then disconnect the power cable.
The cool-down period lasts for about 20 seconds.

turns off automatically as a safety precaution. Moreover, the lamp
will not turn on if the lamp or the lamp cover is not installed
correctly.
• The lamp contains mercury. Dispose of used lamps properly in
accordance with your local regulations.
88
Maintenance
Resetting the Lamp Operating Time
The projector has a built-in counter which keeps track of the lamp
operating time. When the cumulative operating time reaches a certain

The following is an explanation of some of the terms used in this guide which may be unfamiliar or which are not explained in the text of this guide itself. Further
information can be obtained by referring to other commercially-available publications.
Abs. Color Temp.
Aspect ratio
Component video
Composite video
Contrast
Cool-down
Dolby Digital
HDTV
Interlaced scanning
Progressive scanning
Refresh rate
The temperature of an object which is emitting light. If the absolute colour temperature is high, the colours tend to take on a
bluish tinge. If the absolute colour temperature is lower, the colours tend to take on a reddish tinge.
The ratio between an image's length and its height. HDTV images have an aspect ratio of 16:9 and appear elongated. The
aspect ratio for standard images is 4:3.
Video signals which have the video brightness signals and colour signals separated, in order to provide better image quality.
In high-definition TV (HDTV), it refers to images which consist of three independent signals: Y (luminance signal), and Pb
and Pr (colour difference signals).
Video signals which have the video brightness signals and colour signals mixed together. The type of signals commonly used
by household video equipment (NTSC, PAL and SECAM formats).
The carrier signal Y (luminance signal) and chroma (colour) signal which are contained in the colour bar are overlapped to
form a single signal.
The relative brightness of the light and dark areas of an image can be increased or decreased in order to make text and
graphics stand out more clearly, or to make them appear softer. Adjusting this particular property of an image is called
"contrast adjustment".
This is the process by which the projector's lamp is cooled down after it has become hot through use. Cool-down is carried out
automatically when the [Power] button is pressed to turn off the power. Do not disconnect the power cable while cool-down is
in progress, otherwise the cool-down process will not work properly. If the cool-down period is not allowed to finish normally,
the projector's lamp and internal components will remain at high temperatures, and this may shorten the operating life of the
lamp or cause problems with the operation of the projector.
A sound format developed by Dolby Laboratories. Normal stereo is a 2-channel format which uses two speakers. Dolby
Digital is a 6-channel (5.1-channel) system which adds to this a centre speaker two rear speakers and a sub-woofer.
An abbreviation for High-Definition Television. It refers to high-definition systems which satisfy the following conditions.
•Vertical resolution of 750p or 1125i or greater (p = progressive scanningg, i = interlaced scanningg)
•Screen aspect ratiog of 16:9
•Dolby Digitalg audio reception and playback (or output)
A method of image scanning whereby the image data is divided into fine horizontal lines which are displayed in sequence
starting from left to right and then from the top to the bottom of the screen. The even-numbered lines and odd-numbered lines
are displayed alternately.
A method of image scanning whereby the image data from a single image is scanned sequentially from top to bottom to create
a single image.
The light-emitting element of a display maintains the same luminosity and colour for an extremely short time. Because of this,
the image must be scanned many times per second in order to refresh the light-emitting element. The number of refresh
operations per second is called the "refresh rate", and is expressed in hertz (Hz).

This function is used to allow images that have a resolution more than or less than the projector's panel resolution to be
projected so that they fill the whole of the projection area.
An abbreviation for Standard Definition Television. It refers to standard television systems which do not satisfy the conditions
for High-Definition Television.
A device consisting of a projector case with a hole in it that a commercially-available theft-prevention cable can be passed
through in order to secure the device to a table or pillar. This projector is compatible with the Microsaver Security System
manufactured by Kensington.
In this mode, wide-screen images in 16:9 mode are compressed in the horizontal direction so that they are stored on the
recording medium as 4:3 images.
When these images are played back by the projector in squeeze mode, they are restored to their original 16:9 format.
An international standard for colour intervals that was formulated so that colours which are reproduced by video equipment
can be handled easily by computer operating systems (OS) and the Internet.
A type of video signal with a resolution of 800 (horizontal) × 600 (vertical) dots which is used by IBM PC/AT-compatible
computers.
A video signal which has the luminance component and colour component separated in order to provide better image quality.
It refers to images which consist of two independent signals: Y (luminance signal), and C (colour signal).
A type of video signal with a resolution of 1280 (horizontal) × 1024 (vertical) dots which is used by IBM PC/AT-compatible
computers.
The signals output from computers and RGB video equipment have a specific frequency. If the projector frequency does not
match this frequency, the resulting images will not be of a good quality. The process of matching the phases of these signals
(the relative position of the crests and troughs in the signal) is called "synchronisation". If the signals are not synchronized,
problems such as flickering, blurriness and horizontal interference can occur.
The signals output from computers and RGB video equipment have a specific frequency. If the projector frequency does not
match this frequency, the resulting images will not be of a good quality. The process of matching the frequency of these
signals (the number of crests in the signal) is called "tracking". If tracking is not carried out correctly, wide vertical stripes will
appear in the projected images.
An abbreviation for Universal Serial Bus. USB is an interface for connecting personal computers to peripheral devices which
only support relatively low data transmission speeds.
A type of video signal with a resolution of 1600 (horizontal) × 1200 (vertical) dots which is used by IBM PC/AT-compatible
computers.
A type of video signal with a resolution of 640 (horizontal) × 480 (vertical) dots which is used by IBM PC/AT-compatible
computers.
A type of video signal with a resolution of 1024 (horizontal) × 768 (vertical) dots which is used by IBM PC/AT-compatible
computers.
List of ESC/VP21 Commands
Command List

Communication Protocol
When a power on command is sent to the projector, the power will turn on
and the projector will change to warm-up mode. When the power has
turned on, a colon ":" (3Ah) will be returned.
When the projector executes a command, it returns a ":" and waits for the
next command to be sent.
If command processing terminates with an error, the projector outputs an
error message and then returns the ":" code.
