B Projecting/Adjusting an Image
Projecting an Image
The size of a projected image depends on the distance between the projector and screen. Install
the projector so that the projected image fits the screen size. For details on projection distances
and projected image sizes, see “Projection Distance and Lens Shift Range” (page 62).
Notes
• Due to the characteristics of ultra short throw projector, the image may appear uneven on a
projection surface that is not absolutely flat. This is not a malfunction of the projector.
• Project the image on a flat surface.

Replacing the Lamp
Replace the lamp with a new one if a message displayed on the projected image or the LAMP/
COVER indicator notifies you to replace the lamp (pages 48, 49).

Sony personnel. Do not replace the lamp
yourself.
• When removing the lamp, be sure to pull it
out straight, by holding the designated
location. If you touch a part of the lamp other
than the designated location, you may be
burned or injured. If you pull out the lamp
while the projector is tilted, the pieces may
scatter if the lamp breaks any may cause
injury.

Projection Distance and Lens Shift Range
The projection distance is the distance between the center of the projection window and the
surface of the projected image. The following describes the projection distance and height from
the center of the projection window to edge of screen by each projected screen size. Height H
is the height from the bottom of the projected image (top for wall mount) to A (determined by
drawing a perpendicular line from the center of the projection window to projected image
surface).

The lens shift range is the distance you can move the lens shift from the center of the projected
image(0) when full width and full height of the projected image is regarded as 100%.
