Overview

Precautions

On safety

• Check that the operating voltage of your unit is identical with the voltage of your local power supply.

• Should any liquid or solid object fall into the cabinet, unplug the unit and have it checked by qualified personnel before operating it further.

• Unplug the unit from the wall outlet if it is not to be used for several days.

• To disconnect the cord, pull it out by the plug. Never pull the cord itself.

• The wall outlet should be near the unit and easily accessible.

• The unit is not disconnected to the AC power source (mains) as long as it is connected to the wall outlet, even if the unit itself has been turned off.

• Do not look into the lens while the lamp is on.

• Do not place your hand or objects near the ventilation holes. The air coming out is hot.

• Be careful not to have your fingers caught by the adjuster. The powered tilt adjuster of this unit automatically extends when the power is turned on, and is put away automatically when the power is turned off. Do not touch the unit while the adjuster is in operation. Adjust the powered tilt adjuster carefully after its automatic operation is completed.

• Do not spread a cloth or paper under the unit.

On illumination

• To obtain the best picture, the front of the screen should not be exposed to direct lighting or sunlight.

• Ceiling-mounted spot lighting is recommended. Use a cover over fluorescent lamps to avoid lowering the contrast ratio.

• Cover any windows that face the screen with opaque draperies.

• It is desirable to install the projector in a room where floor and walls are not of

6

Precautions light-reflecting material. If the floor and walls are of reflecting material, it is recommended that the carpet and wall paper be changed to a dark color.

On preventing internal heat buildup

After you turn off the power with the

I

/ 1 key, do not disconnect the unit from the wall outlet while the cooling fan is still running.

Caution

The projector is equipped with ventilation holes (intake) and ventilation holes

(exhaust). Do not block or place anything near these holes, or internal heat build-up may occur, causing picture degradation or damage to the projector.

On cleaning

• To keep the cabinet looking new, periodically clean it with a soft cloth.

Stubborn stains may be removed with a cloth lightly dampened with a mild detergent solution. Never use strong solvents, such as thinner, benzene, or abrasive cleansers, since these will damage the cabinet.

• Avoid touching the lens. To remove dust on the lens, use a soft dry cloth. Do not use a damp cloth, detergent solution, or thinner.

• Clean the filter at regular intervals.

On LCD data projector

• The LCD data projector is manufactured using high-precision technology. You may, however, see tiny black points and/or bright points (red, blue, or green) that continuously appear on the LCD data projector. This is a normal result of the manufacturing process and does not indicate a malfunction.

Notes on Installation and Usage

Unsuitable Installation

Do not install the projector in the following situations. These installations may cause a

malfunction or damage to the projector.

Poorly ventilated

• To avoid moisture condensation, do not install the unit in a location where the temperature may rise rapidly.

Subject to direct cool or warm air from an air-conditioner

Installing in such a location may cause malfunction of the unit due to moisture condensation or rise in temperature.

Near a heat or smoke sensor

• Allow adequate air circulation to prevent internal heat build-up. Do not place the unit on surfaces (rugs, blankets, etc.) or near materials (curtains, draperies) that may block the ventilation holes. When the internal heat builds up due to the block-up, the temperature sensor will function with the message “High temp.! Lamp off in 1 min.” The power will be turned off automatically after one minute.

• Leave space of more than 30 cm (11

7

/

8 inches) around the unit.

• Be careful that the ventilation holes may inhale tininess such as a piece of paper.

Highly heated and humid

Malfunction of the sensor may be caused.

Very dusty, extremely smoky

Avoid installing the unit in a very dusty or extremely smoky environment. Otherwise, the air filter will become obstructed, and this may cause a malfunction of the unit or damage it. Dust preventing the air passing through the filter may cause a rise in the internal temperature of the unit. Clean the filter periodically.

• Avoid installing the unit in a location where the temperature or humidity is very high, or temperature is very low.

Notes on Installation and Usage

7

Unsuitable Conditions

Do not use the projector under the following conditions.

Toppling the unit

Avoid using as the unit topples over on its side. It may cause malfunction.

Blocking the ventilation holes

Avoid using something to cover over the ventilation holes (exhaust/intake); otherwise, the internal heat may build up.

For details on the ventilation holes (intake/

exhaust), see “Location and Function of

Controls” on page 11.

Tilting the unit out of the range of the adjuster setting

Avoid using when the unit is tilted out of the range of the adjuster setting. Such installation may cause color shading or shorten excessively the lamp life.

Tilting the unit to the right or left

Avoid tilting the unit to an angle of 15°, and avoid installing the unit in any way other than placing on the floor or suspending from the ceiling. Such installation may cause color shading or shorten the lamp life excessively.

Usage in High Altitude

When using the projector at an altitude of

1,500 m or higher, turn on “High

Altitude Mode” in the INSTALL SETTING menu. Failing to set this mode when using the projector at high altitudes could have adverse effects, such as reducing the reliability of certain components.

Note on carrying the projector

The unit is manufactured using highprecision technology. When transporting the unit stored in the soft case, do not drop the unit or subject it to shock, as this may cause damage. When storing the unit in the soft case, disconnect the AC power cord and all other connecting cables, and store the supplied accessories in a pocket of the soft case.

Note on the screen

When using a screen with an uneven surface, stripes pattern may rarely appear on the screen depending on the distance between the screen and the projector or the zooming magnifications. This is not a malfunction of the projector.

Notes

• When SVGA or XGA signal is input, “Scan Converter” will not be displayed.

• Note that if the projector is used for profit or for public viewing, modifying the original picture by switching to the wide mode may constitute an infringement of the rights of authors or producers, which are legally protected.

About the Preset Memory No.

This projector has 32 types of preset data for input signals (the preset memory). When a preset signal is input, the projector automatically detects the signal type and recalls the data for the signal from the preset memory to adjust it to an optimum picture. The memory

number and signal type of that signal are displayed in the INFORMATION menu (See page 38). You can also adjust the preset data through the INPUT SETTING menu.

This projector has 20 types of user memories for INPUT-A into which you can save the setting of the adjusted data for an unpreset input signal.

When an unpreset signal is input for the first time, a memory number is displayed as 0.

When you adjust the data of the signal in the INPUT SETTING menu, it will be registered to the projector. If more than 20 user memories are registered, the newest memory always overwrites the oldest one.

See the chart on page 50 to find if the signal is registered to the preset memory.

Since the data is recalled from the preset memory about the following signals, you can use these preset data by adjusting “H Size.” Make fine adjustment by adjusting “Shift.”
