A sophisticated proprietary optical system, coupled with a hight
performance zoom lens ensures hight contrast images, superior
uniformity and edge-to-edge definition.
A new 6-segment colour wheel dramatically reduces the so
called “rainbow effect” and gives a better contrast, better
colorimetry and a lower black level to the image.
The new HD2+ DMD™ chip ensures, on top of the high definition
resolution (1280 x 720 pixels), an increased contrast ratio of >
2800:1 thus delivering on the screen an even more realistic
image.
Fig. 1
The FDP-DLPHD20 incorporates patented Faroudja technology
for deinterlacing, color and detail processing, including DCDi
technology. The result is that all sources are converted to very
clean video signals full of detail and color while free of typical
artifacts such as stairstepping and motion breakup.
Using the very latest in DLP™ technology, this projector has
been designed specifically for high quality “Home Cinema”
applications.
Sophisticated digital processing and a wide choice of inputs
enable the connection of a variety of sources such as DVD
players, analogue and digital VCRs, analogue and digital satellite receivers and personal computers etc.
The long throw zoom lens allows the position of the projector to
be located behind the viewer, thus reproducing a cinema-like
installation (Fig. 2).
To fully appreciate your new projector we recommend the use
of a good quality screen and surround-sound system. Contact
your nearest authorized Faroudja dealer for further details.
Faroudja carries out comprehensive functional
testing in order to guarantee the maximum product
quality.
For this reason, when you start using the product
lamp operating hours may already be at between
30 and 60.
In addition to the regular tests, the Quality Control
department performs additional statistical tests at
the time of shipment.
In this case the packing may show signs of having
been opened, and the accumulated lamp operating
hours may be slightly higher than the hours associated with the standard tests.

To activate an electric motorised screen a 12 Volt output is
provided at the rear of the projector. This can be connected to
a screen interface unit, which can be supplied by screen
manufacturers (Fig. 11).
8
Fig. 12
For rear projection the screen must be translucent.
For front projection, we recommend the use of screens with
low gain specifications (i.e. 1.3 to 2). The use of high gain
screens should be avoided due to their limited viewing angle,
which is undesirable for a large audience.
Preferably, use a screen with black, non-reflecting borders,
which will perfectly frame the projected image.
Avoid light shining directly on the screen during projection as
this will reduce contrast and black level detail on the projected
image. For the true cinema experience best results are
achieved with little or no ambient light.
Furniture and other objects with reflecting surfaces, as well as
light coloured walls should be avoided, as they are likely to
interfere with the screen’s characteristics.
5 SWITCHING ON AND OFF THE PROJECTOR
CAUTION: Connect the projector to a power supply
with a nominal voltage within the following values:
100-240 Vac, 50/60 Hz. It must be earthed (Fig. 13).

Connection is made via a 4-pin mini-DIN (Fig. 18).
VGA INPUT
Personal Computers, Video Processors (scalers) and Video
Game consoles can be connected to the projector via the HDB
15-Pin (VGA) terminal.

the following synchronisation options: separate H/V Sync, H+V
Composite Sync, (RGsB) composite sync on the green signal
RGSB - YSCRCB
COMPONENT
VIDEO
Fig. 20
This input is suitable for a RGB video signal, or for a Component
(YCrCb) type, with composite synchronisation on the green
signal (RGsB) or on the luminance (Y) signal (YsCrCb) through
a cable with RCA/Phono type connector (Fig. 20).
RGB or YCrCb signals can also have H+V Composite Sync.
In this case connect the R, G, B (or Y, Cr, Cb) outputs of the
source to the respective R/Cr, G/Y, B/Cb inputs of the projector
(paying attention not to invert the positions) and the synchronisation signal to the HV input . When connecting the three sets
of RCA connectors use the colours as a guide: connector R is
11
red, G is green, B is blue and HV is white. By using a suitable
SCART to RCA connector adapter cable, an RGB video signal
from a source equipped with an SCART connector can be connected to this input.
Component signals are connected to inputs Y, Cr and Cb, taking care to observe the correspondence with the outputs on
the source. The video signals that can be connected to this
input can have horizontal scanning frequencies of 15 kHz
(standard video resolution), 32 kHz, or higher (progressive scanning video, high definition video).
Some sources provide the facility to choose between a progressive signal or an interlaced signal. Although in general a
progressive signal is higher quality than an interlaced signal, it
is often preferable to perform the deinterlacing operation on
the projector rather than on the source because the projector
is equipped with Faroudja’s sophisticated directional correlation deinterlacing technology (DCDi™).

PICTURE
This menu features the adjustments related to picture quality.
Adjustments that are not available for a given input do not
appear on the menu. Table 1 summarises the adjustments
available for each input. For a complete overview of the onscreen menus, consult the ‘On screen menu layout’ in the
“Additional Information” section.
BRIGHTNESS
Use this control to adjust the image’s black level without
affecting white areas. Increasing the value will give more detail
in darker parts of the picture. For correct adjustment it may
prove useful to display the signal relative to the grey scale within
which the black level and the level immediately above it must
be separately identifiable. Alternatively use a scene composed
of black objects alongside other dark coloured objects.
16
CONTRAST
Use this control to adjust the image’s black level without
affecting white areas.
To ensure correct adjustment, it may prove useful to display
the signal relative to the grey scale, within which the white level
and the level immediately below it must be separately
identifiable. Alternatively use a scene composed of well-lit white
objects surrounded by light coloured objects with lower level
lighting.
COLOR
This control (also called Saturation) increases or decreases
the picture colour intensity. When set to zero, colour images
will be shown in black and white. Increasing the value, try to
find the point at which the colours look natural: suitable
references include skin tones and grass in landscape shots.
TINT
Controls the purity of the colours. Basically determines the
red-green ratio of the picture.
Reducing the value will boost the red contents of the picture,
increasing the value will boost the green tones. For this
adjustment use skin tones or a test pattern image with colour
bars as a reference.
SHARPNESS
Use this adjustment to increase and decrease the level of
picture detail.
When the sharpness value is reduced the image details
appear less pronounced, while increasing the value raises
image definition, making the outline of objects sharper.
Note that an excessively high value may result in a ‘noisy’ picture
and the edges of objects may be unnaturally defined.
SHARPNESS MODE
This allows you to select the type of processing associated
with sharpness adjustment. In the case of a progressive or
interlaced video signal VIDEO mode is advisable; with PC graphic
signals use GRAPHIC MODE.
FILTER
This allows you to select the mode in which the input signal
is processed. Selecting the most appropriate value for a given
input signal ensures the best horizontal and vertical definition
and makes the picture sharper.
CINEMA MODE
In AUTO the deinterlacer recognises if the video signal source
is a movie film (obtained from a Telecine device with 3:2 or 2:2
pull-down) and applies a deinterlace algorithm optimised for this
type of signal.
If the video signal source is not identified as a film, or if you
select NO the deinterlacer applies a Motion compensated
algorithm optimised for video camera signals.
VIDEO TYPE
Activates a filter to improve stability of pictures from video
recorders. To toggle between NORMAL, VCR1 mode and VCR2
mode press
on the remote control.
NOISE REDUCTION
This adjustments allows to choose the filter value for noise
reduction purposes.
As soon as this option is selected on the menu, the image is
divided in two parts.
In the left side the image is not altered by the filter, in the right
part the filter is activated.
This allows you to compare the effect of the filter.
It is possible to deactivated the filter (NOT ACTIVE), to use the
automatic adjustments (AUTO) or to manually select (MANUAL)
the value suitable for the image with the VALUE adjustment.
In case of using the VALUE adjustement, it is enoght to select to
cursor below and set the value with the / keys of the remote
control.
Associated to the NOISE REDUCTION there is the possibility to use the
specific function (FLESH TONE CORRECTION) to make skin tone more
natural. Often the use of noise reduction filter slightly degrades
the image in those areas where skin tones are visible. With the
use of this function it is possible to maintain an excellent image
quality throughout the entire projected image.

IMAGE
This menu features adjustments relating to picture position,
aspect ratio, etc.
ASPECT
This adjustment allows you to change the dimensions and
aspect ratio (relationship between width and height) of the
displayed image. There are five preset aspects available and
three personalised aspects (with user-settable parameters). You
can select a different aspect for each source: the selected
aspect ratio will be automatically called the next time the relative source is called.
You can also select the required aspect ratio by repeatedly
pressing the
key, or by pressing
and a numerical key
(1...8).
The following aspects are available.
NORMAL: projects the image occupying the full height of the
screen while maintaining the aspect ratio of the input signal.
When the input signal aspect ratio is 4:3 black vertical bands
are displayed on the right and left of the picture.
ANAMORPHIC: allows a 16:9 picture to be displayed correctly.
LETTERBOX: serves to display 4:3 letterbox image (with source
signal having black bands above and below the picture) so
that it fills the 16:9 screen and maintains the correct aspect
ratio.
PANORAMIC: this aspect stretches the 4:3 image, slightly
cropping the upper and lower parts.
Panoramic is ideal for displaying a 4:3 image on the 16:9 screen
of the Display.
PIXEL TO PIXEL: this aspect displays the image as it is input without
adapting it to the screen.
The image is projected in the centre of the screen and if its
horizontal and/or vertical dimensions are smaller than the
display, it is bounded by vertical and/or horizontal black bands.
USER 1, 2, 3: When none of the preset formulas are suitable, the
User formulas are available, with the facility for continuous
horizontal and vertical adjustment of picture size.
18
SCREEN CONTROL
For each aspect chosen, the SCREEN CONTROL command
allows you to reframe the screen to a variety of aspect ratios
and screen size, using an appropriate screen-masking interface connected to the 12 V output socket (please refer to the
screen manufacture's manual)
COLOR TEMPERATURE
Changes the colour balance of the image.
Colours can be adjusted towards the red end of the spectrum
(low colour temperature values - expressed in degrees Kelvin)
or the blue end (high values).
Colour temperature can be selected with three preset values:
HIGH (corresponding to approx. 9000 degrees Kelvin), MEDIUM
(approx. 8000 degrees Kelvin), LOW (approx. 6500 degrees
Kelvin) and one PERSONAL setting controlled by the user with
separate adjustments for RED, GREEN and BLUE.
In the personale color adjustment for all three colors it is possible
to set an Offset value and Gain.
The Offset adjustments have an impact of the low IRE values,
while the Gain adjustments impact of the higher IRE values.
Generally, the HIGH value is more suitable for displaying graphic
images, MEDIUM and LOW for video images.
These adjustments are reserved for expert users since there is
a risk of obtaining results that impair projected image quality.
GAMMA CORRECTION
Determines the system’s response to the grey scale,
emphasising or attenuating the different grades of brightness
(blacks, dark, medium, light grey, whites) in the projected
image.
The GRAPHICS setting is more suitable for computer images,
while the FILM and VIDEO settings are more suitable for video
images.
OVERSCAN
Remove noise around image. Some sources can produce a
picture with noise along edges, thanks to the overscan function
it is possible to drop such imperfections outside the projected
area. The overscan value can be included between 0 (no
overscan) and 32 (maximum value). The image maintains in
any case the aspect.
POSITION
Use this adjustment to position the image vertically and
horizontally. Determines the aspect ratio of the projected image.
These parameters do not normally require adjustment because
the system checks the input signal and automatically sets the
most suitable values.
However, if the image is not perfectly centralised it may prove
useful to request the system to repeat the input signal analysis
and image positioning, calling the automatic control procedure from the AUTO button on the remote control or keypad. When
this procedure is called it is helpful to have a white or light
coloured background on the screen in the current picture.
the system to repeat the input signal analysis and determination
of the best parameters by calling the automatic adjustment
procedure with the AUTO key on the remote control or on the
keypad.
If the automatic procedure fails to have the required effect, enter
the frequency and phase values manually and approach the
screen sufficiently to observe the effects of the adjustments.
FREQUENCY/PHASE
These adjustments, available for progressive signals and for
signals from PC, ensure correspondence between the number
of pixels making up the signal and the number of pixels making
up the projected image.
These parameters do not normally require adjustment because
the system checks the input signal and automatically sets the
most suitable values.
However, if the image appears disturbed (loss of position within
the equidistant vertical bands or instability and lack of
sharpness on the narrow vertical lines) it may help to prompt
Y / C DELAY
In the case of Video and S-Video signals, it may be necessary
to correct horizontal colour misalignment within the projected
image. For a given video standard (e.g. PAL or NTSC) the stored
value does not normally require further fine-tuning, unless the
source or connection cable has changed.

RESTORE CURRENT SETTINGS
On entering the ‘Memories’ menu, a copy of the current settings is saved in a temporary menu (labelled with 0 - AUTO).
Once one or more memories have been recalled, you can restore the settings that were effective at the moment the Memories menu was accessed by selecting 0 - AUTO. However, this
operation must be completed before the ‘Memories’ menu page
disappears (30 seconds after the last operation commanded
from the remote control or the keypad). The next time it appears, the temporary memory will contain new information that
takes into account any Memories selected the penultimate time
the ‘Memories’ page was accessed.
Memory 0 (- AUTO) can be used even when you do not wish to
enable the Memories management function for the signal
currently in use. Once Memory 0 has been selected, when a
source is chosen, the settings that were effective at the time
the Memory was previously recalled will be automatically
applied.

MESSAGES
The following messages could appear on your screen:
No Signal
The projector does not recognise any signal sent through the
selected input.
- Check that the selected input is actually connected to
a video or graphic signal.
- Verify compatibility of video/graphic signals with technical
specifications of your projector.
- Check the integrity of cables used to connect various
sources.
Out of range
Either the resolution or the horizontal/vertical frequency of the
input signal is too high.
- Input a signal that is within specifications.
10 CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
The projector does not require internal cleaning. There are no
user serviceable parts inside the projector. Please refer all
service requirements to qualified personnel.
Cleaning the projector’s cover:
Use a soft slightly damp cloth. Do not use abrasive cleaners,
solvents or other harsh chemicals, as this will damage the finish
of the cover. Avoid direct cleaning of the rear panel’s screen24
printing.
Cleaning the lens:
The lens may be cleaned with a very soft, non-abrasive small
brush, in order to remove dust particles. Alternatively, use a
soft dry cleaning cloth (of the type used for camera lens
cleaning) to remove fingerprints and grease marks.
11 TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE

- Check the power switch at the rear: it must be in position I.
- Check if the power cable has been connected correctly to a
working socket.
- Check the power socket fuse, at the rear of the projector.
- Replace the fuse on the mains socket with an identical type
(T 3.15A H) (Fig. 2).
- Should the problem persist, seek authorised technical
assistance.
The lamp is not coming on
- Allow a few minutes pause between switching off and turning
on again (from stand-by). This will allow the lamp to cool down
sufficiently.
- If the lamp doesn’t come on – even though the projector has
had sufficient time to cool down – seek technical assistance
from your nearest Dealer.
No image

- Check temperature of the room: it must be below 35°C
(95°F)
- Check projector air vents on top and underneath the projector:
they must be free of obstruction.
- If the problem persists, consult your Dealer.
Image is disturbed, unstable or noisy
- Verify compatibility of video/graphic signals with the technical
specifications of the projector.
- Check the integrity of cables connecting projector to various
sources.
- If the signal source is a terrestrial broadcast (via a VCR) check
that the receiving channel has been correctly tuned in and
that the aerial system is in good working order.
- Should the problem be present with a signal coming from a
video-recorder, ensure that the videotape is an Original “first
generation” copy and in good condition.
- Adjust the VCR’s tracking control for optimum picture performance. Ensure the VCR mode is active in the Picture menu.
Incomplete image along borders (vertical and horizontal)
- Compare compatibility of video/graphic signals and technical specifications of your projector.
- Press Auto (on your remote or keypad) to execute automatic
adjustments.
- Adjust the horizontal and vertical position of projected image
by selecting Position on the Image Adjustments menu.
- Adjust the width and height of image, selecting Aspect in
the Image Adjustments menu.
Image too dark, too pale or unnaturally coloured
- Verify compatibility of video/graphic signals with technical
specifications of your projector.
- Go to Picture menu, select and regulate any of the following,
accordingly: Contrast, Brightness, Color, and Tint.
- If necessary, reset the Color Temperature and Gamma
Correction (found on the Image Adjustments /
Advanced Settings menu).
Graphic image with poor quality vertical detail
- Verify compatibility of video/graphic signals with technical
specifications of your projector.
- Press Auto (on your remote or keypad) to execute
automatic adjustments.

specifications of your projector.
- Adjust Y/C Delay settings in the Image Adjustments /
Advanced Settings to reduce colour misalignment. For
best results use an external colour bar test pattern source.
Remote control does not work
- Check the batteries and for correct polarity.
- Ensure that the area between the infrared sensor (front of
projector) and the remote control is free of obstruction.
- Ensure that infrared sensors (front and rear of projector) are
not exposed to intense light levels.

C PROJECTION DISTANCES
H
Follow the table below to determine the optimal projection distance “L” between the screen and the center of the lens. This will
help you to obtain the desired screen size.The manual lens shift adjustments allows the projected image to be moved vertically,
up or down, in relation to the centre of the screen (Fig.37b). If the distance “H” between the centre of the screen and the centre of
the lens exceed Hmax, it is necessary to tilt the projector and use the digital keystone to correct the image projected.
