Turning off the power
Press the POWER button on the LCD projector or remote control to
turn off the power.
The STANDBY(R) ON(G) indicator flashes red while the LCD projector
cools down, and then changes to solid red when the fan stops after about a

Positioning the LCD projector and screen
The screen should be positioned so that it is not directly touched by sunlight or
room light, as this will wash out the colors of the picture, making it hard to see.
When possible, close all blinds and curtains and dim the lights. Also, the projector
should be at a 90° angle to the screen for the best results. To determine the distance
for the desired size, please refer to the LCD projector/relative screen position chart
on page 32.

This LCD projector’s picture is set to standard specifications at the factory.
However, you can adjust the image to suit your own preferences by using the RGB
or VIDEO ADJUST feature. Three memory modes allow you to adjust and save up
to three sets of settings for each input signal (RGB and S-VIDEO/VIDEO).
For RGB signal input, three items can be adjusted: “BRIGHTNESS,”
“PICTURE,” and “COLOR (White Balance)”.
For VIDEO signal input, six items can be adjusted; “COLOR”, “TINT”,
“BRIGHTNESS”, “PICTURE”, “SHARPNESS”, and “SUB COLOR” (white
balance).
Note: When a PC-Card is inserted, the RGB “BRIGHTNESS” memory is used.
Only “BRIGHTNESS” can be adjusted.
