Inserting the batteries into the remote control

1. Remove the rear lid of the remote control.

2. Check the polarity (+), (-) of the batteries, and set them correctly, inserting their (-) side first.

• If the battery is inserted from the (+) side first, inserting the (-) side is difficult because the coil spring end hits on the battery side. If the battery is forced to insert in this way, the outer label of the battery may get ripped and it may cause a short-circuit and heating.

3. Attach the rear lid.

Important:

• Use two size-AAA batteries (R03).

• Replace the two batteries with new ones when the remote control is slow to operate.

Caution:

• If the batteries are treated incorrectly, they may cause fire or other contamination due to leakage of the liquid, heating, or they may burst. (Read the cautions indicated on the battery, too.)

• Do not use a new battery with an old one.

• Load batteries in the correct position.

• Do not heat, take apart, or throw batteries into fire.

• Do not try to recharge batteries. Do not use rechargeable batteries.

• If the solution of batteries comes in contact with your skin or clothes, rinse with water. If the solution comes in contact with your eyes, rinse them with water and then consult your doctor.

• Keep the remote control photo-sensor out of direct sunlight or fluorescent lamp light.

• Keep the remote control photo-sensor at least 2 m away from fluorescent lamps. Otherwise, the remote control may malfunction.

• If there is an inverter-operated fluorescent lamp near the remote control, the remote control operation may become unstable. On this occasion, stick the attached protection sticker on one of the photo-sensors that is closer to the fluorescent lamp.

Operate the remote control within a distance of 10 m from the projector, pointing the light beam at the remote control photo-sensor

(front or rear) of the projector.

When operating the remote control, keep the distance from the remote controller to the projector via the screen within about 6m. The operable range of the remote control, however, depends on the characteristics of the screen.

Setting up your projector

Setting up the screen

Install the screen perpendicularly to the projector. If the screen can not be installed in such a way, adjust the projection angle of the projector. (See below.)

• Install the screen and projector so that the projector’s lens is placed at the same height and horizontal position of the screen center.

• Do not install the screen where it is exposed to direct sunlight or lighting. Light directly reflecting on the screen makes the projected images whitish and hard to view.

Basic setup

Determine the distance from the screen to the projector according to the size of the images to be projected. (See

Pages 12 and 13.)

• Do not place this projector on a carpet or blanket because the exhaust vent and the intake vent on the bottom surface are blocked and the inside of the projector is heated, causing a breakdown or fire.

• Depending on the installation conditions, warm air that is emitted from the exhaust vents may flow into the intake vent, causing the projector to display “OVER TEMPERATURE” and then stop projecting images. In such a case, attach the cushion that comes with the projector to the bottom surface of the projector as shown below.

Adjusting the projection angle

This projector is provided with four feet for adjusting the projection angle on the bottom surface. Adjust the projection angle depending on the position of the projector. (Turn the feet for adjusting the projection angle to the left or right to adjust their length.)

When projected images are distorted to a trapezoid:

When the screen and the projector are not placed perpendicularly to each other, projected images become trapezoidal. If you cannot make the projector and the screen perpendicular to each other by mechanical adjustments, adjust

KEYSTONE in the INSTALLATION menu. (See

Page 25.)

• When the keystone adjustment is applied, the correct aspect ratio may not be obtained.

• To secure the correct aspect ratio, use the projector with its lens centered as much as possible. However, the correct aspect ratio may not be obtained even though the lens is centered.

• When the keystone adjustment is applied, the resolution lowers. In addition, vertical stripes appear and straight lines bend in images with complicated patterns. To prevent such symptoms, keep the screen and the projector perpendicular to each other as much as possible.

• Though the projected image may be distorted momentarily when you change the setting value of the keystone adjustment, such symptom is not a malfunction.

• Though the projected image may be distorted depending on the setting value of the keystone adjustment and the type of the input signal, such symptom is not a malfunction. In such a case, adjust the setting value within the range where the projected image is not distorted.

• The setting value displayed at the time of the keystone adjustment may vary depending on the type of the input signal.

V.POSITION and FINE SYNC. is unavailable.

When you connect this projector and a DVI-Digital device (such as a DVD player) via the DVI terminal, black color may appear light and pale, depending on the type of the connected device.

• This depends on the black level setting of the connected device. There are two kinds of methods to digitally transfer image data, in which different black level settings are employed respectively. Therefore, the specifications of the signals output from DVD players differ, depending on the type of the digital data transfer method they use.

• Some DVD players are provided with a function to switch the methods to output DVI-Digital signals. When your DVD player is provided with such function, set it as follows.

NORMAL

➔ EXPAND or ENHANCED

• See the users guide of your DVD player for details.

• When your DVD player does not have such function, set BRIGHTNESS of this projector to -7. When you have more than one DVD player, it is convenient to store the image quality settings for each DVD player in the memory.

Replacing the lamp

This projector is equipped with a lamp to project images. This lamp is a consumable. It may burn out or its brightness may decrease during use. In such cases, replace the lamp with a new one as soon as possible. Be sure to replace the lamp with a new lamp separately sold that is exclusive to HC2000. Contact your dealer for purchase of the lamp.

WARNING:

• Be sure to turn off the main power switch and unplug the power cord from the wall outlet before replacing the lamp. Lamp replacement without turning off the main power switch may result in electric shock.

• Be careful not to drop the lamp fixing screws into the inside of the projector. Don’t put a metal piece or flammable object into the projector. Using the projector with any foreign object present inside may result in electric shock or fire. When you can’t remove the foreign object from the inside, contact your dealer for removal.

• Be sure to install the lamp securely. When the lamp isn’t installed properly, it won’t illuminate. Improper installation may also result in fire.

• Don’t shake the removed lamp or don’t lift it above your face. You may be injured in your eye by flying or falling glass fragments.

• Don’t replace the lamp immediately after use because the lamp cover is very hot. You may get burned. Turn off the power using the POWER button. After the lamp goes out, wait about two minutes until the intake and exhaust fans for cooling the lamp stop rotating. Then turn off the main power switch, unplug the power cord, and wait at least one hour to allow the lamp to cool down enough to the touch.

CAUTION:

When the lamp operating time exceeds 1470 hours*1, a warning indication is displayed on the screen for one minute. When it exceeds 1500 hours*1, *2, the warning indication is kept displayed on the screen. In such a case, replace the lamp with a new one immediately.

• Don’t remove the lamp for any purpose other than replacement. Unnecessary removal of the lamp may result in a breakdown.

• This projector uses a high-pressure mercury lamp as the light source. The high-pressure mercury lamp may explode or fail to illuminate permanently because of an impact, scratch, or deterioration through use. The period of time until explosion or permanent failure to illuminate varies considerably from lamp to lamp, depending on operation conditions. Therefore, the lamp may explode soon after the start of use.

• The possibility of explosion of the lamp increases if you use it beyond its replacement period. When the instruction of lamp replacement appears, replace it with a new one immediately even if the lamp is still lighting normally.

• When the high-pressure mercury lamp explodes, glass fragments will scatter inside or outside the lamp box and the gas charged inside the lamp will diffuse inside or outside the projector. The gas inside the lamp contains mercury. Be careful not to breathe it or avoid it from entering your eye or mouth. If you should breathe it or if it should enter your eye or mouth, see a doctor immediately.

• In the event that the high-pressure mercury lamp has exploded, glass fragments may have been scattered inside the projector. Ask your dealer to replace the lamp and to inspect the inside of the projector. When you clean or replace the lamp by yourself, be sure to hold the handle of the lamp. You may get injured by glass fragments.

• Don’t replace the lamp with the projector installed on the ceiling. Glass fragments may fall from the projector, entering your eye or mouth causing injury.

• Dispose of the used lamp according to the local regulations and rules.

*1) Time when the projector is used with LAMP MODE set to NORMAL. When it is set to LOW, this period of time becomes longer.

*2) About 3000 hours at the maximum

EN-31

Cleaning

Be sure to turn off the main power switch and unplug the power cord before you start cleaning.

To clean the filter:

Clean the filter as frequently as possible (or once per month). Dust collecting on the filter of the intake vent may cause the temperature inside the projector to abnormally rise, damaging the parts inside and affecting the projector’s lifetime, resulting in a breakdown.

• When the temperature inside the projector abnormally rises, the TEMP indicator starts blinking red, the power is turned off, and the projector goes into a standby state with the lamp off.

How to clean the filter of the intake vent:

1. Reverse the projector.

2. While pressing the tabs on the filter cover, remove the filter cover in the direction of the arrow.

3. Remove the filter.

4. Clean the filter.

• Wash the filter with water, or if dust and dirt are stubborn, wash it with diluted detergent and then rinse it with water sufficiently. After washing, dry it well.

5. Attach the filter to the projector.

6. Attach the filter cover to the projector.

• Make sure that the filter is attached correctly.

• If dirt on the filter cannot be removed or the filter should be damaged, contact your dealer for purchase of another filter.

• Be sure to attach the filter to the projector. Without the filter, dust and foreign objects may enter the inside of the projector, causing a fire or breakdown.

Cleaning dust in the intake vent

If dust is accumulated in the intake vent, the temperature in the projector goes up abnormally, and may damage the internal parts. Also, the light-source lamp may come off to protect the internal parts. Clean up the dust with a vacuum cleaner about once a year.

Cleaning the projector

Softly wipe off dirt on the projector with a soft cloth.

• If the dirt is thick, wipe it off with a cloth soaked in a neutral detergent diluted with water, and then finish with a dry cloth.

• If any pesticide is sprayed over the projector, or if the projector is wiped with benzine or thinner, or if rubber or vinyl products are brought into contact with the projector for a long period of time, the paint on the projector could be damaged.

Cleaning the lens

Remove dust or dirt on the lens with a commercially available lens cleaning kit (blower, brush, and the like).

• Because the surface of the lens is easily scratched, do not rub or hit the surface with anything hard.

EN-32

Asking for installation

To view images projected by the ceilingmounted projector from the front:

When the projector is installed on the ceiling, the special ceiling mount bracket, which is separately sold, is required. Be sure to ask a certified installation specialist for installation of the projector. Contact your dealer for details.

• Mitsubishi assumes no responsibilities for any damage caused by use of other manufacturer’s ceiling bracket and by inadequate installation conditions even within the warranty period.

To view images projected on the translucent screen from behind:

Be sure to ask a certified installation specialist for installation of the projector. Contact your dealer for details.

• To view images projected from behind the screen, set MIRROR in the INSTALLATION menu to

FLOOR REAR. See Page 25 for details.

• When installing the projector on the ceiling, set

MIRROR in the INSTALLATION menu to

CEILING FRONT. See Page 25 for details.

• Ask your installation specialist to provide a breaker. When you do not use the projector, be sure to shut down the main power by the breaker.

• When the projector is installed on the ceiling, projected images may appear darker than those projected when the projector is installed on the floor. This symptom is not a malfunction.

• Do not install the projector where the exhaust vents are exposed to air emitted by an air conditioning. Such installation may cause a breakdown.

• Do not install the projector near a fire alarm because it emits hot air from its exhaust vents.

Important:

• The maximum resolution supported by this projector is 1280x720. Signals having a higher resolution than this are not projected with their original resolution.

• In the case of a signal having a resolution and sync frequency other than those described in the table above, it may be projected correctly by changing the resolution and frequency of the connected computer.

• The component input terminals of this projector do not support RGB signals.

• Nonconforming signals may not projected correctly.

• Though it takes some time for an image to appear after a signal is input, such symptom is not a malfunction.

• This projector does not support 3-line signals (Sync-on-green signals).
