Preparation
Precautions with regard to safety
CAUTIONS
Do not cover the air inlet port or the air outlet port.
Doing so may cause the projector to overheat, which
can cause fire or damage to the projector.
Do not place the projector in narrow, badly ventilated
places such as closets or bookshelves.
Do not place the projector on cloth or papers, as
these materials could be drawn into the air inlet port.
Do not set up the projector in humid or dusty places
or in places where the projector may come into
contact with oily smoke or steam.
Using the projector under such conditions may result
in fire, electric shocks or plastic deterioration. The
plastic deterioration may cause the falling down of
the projector which is mounted in the ceiling.
When disconnecting the mains lead, hold the plug,
not the lead.
If the mains lead itself is pulled, the lead will become
damaged, and fire, short-circuits or serious electric
shocks may result.
Always disconnect all cables before moving the
projector.
Moving the projector with cables still attached can
damage the cables, which could cause fire or electric
shocks to occur.
Do not place any heavy objects on top of the
projector.
Failure to observe this may cause the projector to
become unbalanced and fall, which could result in
damage or injury.
Do not short-circuit, heat or disassemble the
batteries or place them into water or fire.
Failure to observe this may cause the batteries to
overheat, leak, explode or catch fire, and burns or
other injury may result.
When inserting the batteries, make sure the
polarities (+ and -) are correct.
If the batteries are inserted incorrectly, they may
explode or leak, and fire, injury or contamination of
the battery compartment and surrounding area may
result.
Use only the specified batteries.
If incorrect batteries are used, they may explode or
leak, and fire, injury or contamination of the battery
compartment and surrounding area may result.
Do not mix old and new batteries.
If the batteries are inserted incorrectly, they may
explode or leak, and fire, injury or contamination of
the battery compartment and surrounding area may
result.
Do not put your weight on this projector.
You could fall or the projector could break, and injury
may result.
Be especially careful not to let young children stand
or sit on the projector.
If not using the projector for an extended period of
time, disconnect the mains plug from the mans
socket.
If dust builds up on the mains plug, the resulting
humidity may damage the insulation, which could
result in fire.
Disconnect the mains plug from the mains socket
as a safety precaution before carrying out any
cleaning.
Electric shocks can result if this is not done.
If the lamp has broken, ventilate the room
immediately. Do not touch or bring your face close
to the broken pieces.
Failure to observe this may cause the user to absorb
the gas which was released when the lamp broke
and which contains nearly the same amount of
mercury as fluorescent lamps, and the broken pieces
may cause injury.
If you believe that you have absorbed the gas or that
the gas has got into your eyes or mouth, seek
medical advice immediately.
Ask your dealer about the replacement of the lamp
unit and check the inside of the projector.
Ask an Authorised Service Centre to clean inside
the projector at least once a year.
If dust is left to build up inside the projector without
being cleaned out, it can result in fire or problems
with operation.
It is a good idea to clean the inside of the projector
before the season for humid weather arrives. Ask
your nearest Authorised Service Centre to clean the
projector when required. Please discuss with the
Authorised Service Centre regarding cleaning costs.
We are constantly making efforts to preserve and maintain a clean environment. Please take non repairable
units back to your dealer or a recycling company.

Preparation
Before use
Cautions on use
In order to get the best picture quality
Draw curtains or blinds over any windows and turn
off any lights near the screen to prevent outside light
or light from indoor lamps from shining onto the
screen.
Do not touch the surfaces of the lens with your bare
hands.
If the surface of the lens becomes dirty from
fingerprints or anything else, this will be magnified
and projected onto the screen. Moreover, when not
using the projector, cover it with the lens cover.
Screen
Do not apply any volatile substances which may
cause discolouration to the screen, and do not let it
become dirty or damaged.
10 - ENGLISH
Lamp
The lamp may need to be replaced earlier due to
variables such as individual lamp characteristics,
usage conditions and the installation environment,
especially when the projector is subjected to
continuous use for more than 10 hours or the power
is frequently turned on and off.
Liquid crystal panel
Do not project the same image for long periods of
time, as this may remain as an afterimage on the
liquid crystal panel.
The liquid crystal panel of the projector is built with
very high precision technology to provide fine picture
details. Occasionally, a few stuck pixels may appear
on the screen as fixed points of blue, green or red.
Please note that this does not affect the performance
