Cautions when moving the projector
Be sure to attach the lens cover before moving the projector.
The projection lens is extremely susceptible to vibration and shocks. When
moving the projector, use the accessory carrying bag. When placing the
projector inside the carrying bag, position it so that the lens is facing upward.
Cautions regarding setting-up
Observe the following at all times when setting up the projector.
Avoid setting up in places which are subject to vibration or shocks.
If the projector is set up in locations with strong vibration, such as near a
motor, or if it is installed inside a vehicle or on board a ship, the projector
may be subjected to vibration or shocks which can damage the internal parts
and cause malfunctions or accidents. Accordingly, set up the projector in a
place which is free from such vibrations and shocks.
Do not set up the projector near high-voltage power lines or near
motors.
The projector may be subject to electromagnetic interference if it is set up
near high-voltage power lines or motors.
If installing the projector to the ceiling, ask a qualified technician to
carry out all installation work.
If the projector is to be suspended from the ceiling, you will need to purchase
the separate installation kit (Model No.: ET-PKE300). Furthermore, all
installation work should only be carried out by a qualified technician.
If using this projector at high elevations (above 1400 m), set the FAN
CONTROL to HIGH. (Refer to page 40.)
Failure to observe this may result in malfunctions.
Notes on use
In order to get the best picture quality
If outside light or light from indoor lamps is shining onto the screen, the
images projected will not have good contrast. Draw curtains or blinds over
any windows and turn off any fluorescent lights near the screen to prevent
reflection.
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, retract the lens and then cover it with the accessory lens cover.
10-ENGLISH
About the SD memory card slot
Make sure that there are no foreign objects inside the slot when inserting an
optional SD memory card. Failure to observe it may damage the card and
the slot.
About the screen
If the screen you are using is dirty, damaged or discolored, attractive
projections cannot be obtained. Do not apply any volatile substances to the
screen, and do not let it become dirty or damaged.
About the lamp
The lamp may need to be replaced earlier due to variables such as a
particular lamp’s characteristics, usage conditions and the installation
environment, especially when it is subjected to a continuous use for more
than 10 hours.
About the liquid crystal panel
The liquid crystal panel of the projector is built with very high precision
technology giving you fine picture details. Occasionally, a few non-active
pixels may appear on the screen as a fixed point of blue, green or red.
Please note that this does not affect the performance of your LCD.
Before carrying out cleaning and maintenance, be
sure to disconnect the power cord plug from the
wall outlet.
Wipe the cabinet with a soft, dry cloth.
If the cabinet is particularly dirty, soak the cloth in water with a small amount
of neutral detergent in it, squeeze the cloth very well, and then wipe the
cabinet. After cleaning, wipe the cabinet dry with a dry cloth.
If using a chemically-treated cloth, read the instructions supplied with
the cloth before use.
Do not wipe the lens with a cloth that is dusty or which produces lint.
If any dust or lint gets onto the lens, such dust or lint will be magnified and
projected onto the screen. Use a blower to clean any dust and lint from the
lens surface, or use a soft cloth to wipe off any dust or lint.

B Vertical and horizontal keystone distortion can be corrected to ±30° of the
angle of tilt by PT-AE300U. Vertical keystone distortion can be corrected
to ±30° of the angle of tilt by PT-AE200U. However, the greater the
correction amount, the more the picture quality will deteriorate, and the
harder it will become to achieve a good level of focus. To obtain the best
picture quality, set up the projector and screen in such a way that the
amount of keystone correction required is as minimal as possible.
B The picture size will also change when correction of keystone distortion is

About S1/S2 video signals:
B S1/S2 video signals are for 16:9 images and include a notification signal
when being played by devices such as a DVD player.
B When the projector is set to the “S1/S2” setting shown above, it will detect
those notification signals and automatically switch to the correct aspect
ratio for projection.
NOTE:
B This projector is equipped with an aspect ratio selection function. However, if a
mode which does not match the aspect ratio of the input signal is selected, it
may affect the quality of viewing of the original picture. Keep this in mind when
selecting the aspect ratio.
B If using this projector in places such as cafes or hotels with the aim of
displaying programmes for viewing for a commercial purpose or for public
presentation, note that if the aspect ratio (16:9) selection function is used to
change the aspect ratio of the screen picture, you may be infringing the rights
of the original copyright owner for that program under copyright protection laws.
B If a normal (4:3) picture which was not originally intended for wide-screen
viewing is projected onto a wide screen, distortion may occur around the edges
of the picture so that part of the picture is no longer visible. Such programmes
should be viewed in 4:3 mode to give proper consideration to the aims and
intentions of the original program’s creator.
B The following signals have resolutions that are 16:9 image sizes. The aspect
ratios for these signals cannot be changed while being played because they
are already established. (Refer to page 61.)
HDTV60, HDTV50, 750p, WIDE 400/480/600/720/768
B Image sizes such as Cinema-Vision that project wider than the 16:9 ratio will
have narrow black fields at the top and bottom.

The SD memory card is a semiconductor memory which at 24 mm x 32 mm
x 2.1 mm is about the size of a postage stamp. It is a next-generation
recording medium which can be used instead of conventional storage
devices such as MDs (mini discs), CDs (compact discs) and cassette tapes.
In addition, it allows data to be repeatedly recorded, played and erased. The

B The light generating lamp is
made of glass, so dropping it or
allowing it to hit hard objects may
cause it to burst. Be careful when
handling the lamp.
B After having removed the old
lamp, carelessly discarding it can
cause the lamp to burst. Dispose

The lamp is a consumable product.
Even when the full life of the bulb

decline. Therefore periodic
replacement of the lamp is
necessary.
The intended lamp replacement
interval is 2000 hours, but it is
possible that the lamp may need to
be replaced earlier due to variables
such as a particular lamp's
characteristics, usage conditions
and the installation environment.
Early preparation for lamp
replacement is encouraged.
A lamp that has exceeded 2000
hours of use has a much greater
chance of exploding. In order to
prevent the lamp from exploding,
the lamp will be automatically shut

been reached.
NOTE:
B The usage hours explained
above are for use when the HIGH
setting has been selected for

This projector can only play back image files which comply with the DCF
specification. The DCF specification imposes the following conditions. Image
files or folders which do not conform to these conditions cannot be
recognised by the projector.
Projection dimensions calculation methods
The following methods will allow you to calculate dimensions such as screen
diagonal length and projection distances. Units in all calculations are metre.

File names must consist of four alphanumeric characters followed by
four numerals (file number), followed by ".jpg". (Example: abcd0001.jpg)
B The four numerals must make up a number between 0001 and 9999, and
the alphanumeric characters can be taken from the following set of 37
characters: 0123456789abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz_ (No distinction is
made between upper-case and lower-case alphabetic characters.
Doublebyte characters cannot be used.)
Multiple file names using the same four-digit combination (file number)
cannot be created.
B For example, if two files exist named "abcd0001.jpg" and "efgh0001.jpg"
respectively, the projector cannot recognise them normally.

Folders must be created as sub-folders of the DCIM folder on the SD
memory card.
B Data which is contained within any folder other than the DCIM folder
cannot be recognised.
Folder names must consist of three numerals (folder number) followed
by five alphanumeric characters. (Example: 100abcde)
B The three numerals must make up a number between 100 and 999, and
the alphanumeric characters can be taken from the following set of 37
characters: 0123456789abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz_ (No distinction is
made between upper-case and lower-case alphabetic characters.
Doublebyte characters cannot be used.)
Multiple folders using the same three-digit combination (folder number)
cannot be created.
B For example, if two folders exist named "100abcde" and "100fghij"
respectively, the projector will not recognise them.
Folder sub-hierarchies are not supported.
B For example, if a folder called "323fghij" is created as a sub-folder of the
"102abcde" folder, the projector will not be able to recognise the subfolder.
