B Overview
Precautions
On safety
• Check that the operating voltage of your
unit is identical with the voltage of your
local power supply. If voltage adaptation
is required, consult with qualified Sony
personnel.
• Should any liquid or solid object fall into
the cabinet, unplug the unit and have it
checked by qualified Sony 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 from 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 catch your fingers by the
adjuster when you adjust the height of the
projector. Do not push hard on the top of
the projector with the adjuster out.
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.
On preventing internal heat buildup
The projector is equipped with ventilation
holes (intake) and ventilation holes
(exhaust) at the front. 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 repacking
• Save the original shipping carton and
packing material; they will come in handy
if you ever have to ship your unit. For
maximum protection, repack your unit as
it was originally packed at the factory.
On LCD projector
• The LCD 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 projector.
This is a normal result of the
manufacturing process and does not
indicate a malfunction.
Precautions
5
Overview

turned off automatically after one minute.
• Leave space of more than 50 cm (19 3/4
inches) around the unit.
• Be careful that the ventilation holes may
inhale tininess such as a piece of paper.
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.
Highly heated and humid
• Avoid installing the unit in a location
where the temperature or humidity is very
high, or temperature is very low.
• To avoid moisture condensation, do not
install the unit in a location where the

Connecting the Projector
When you connect the projector, make sure to:
• Turn off all equipment before making any connections.
• Use the proper cables for each connection.
• Insert the cable plugs firmly; loose connections may increase noise and
reduce performance of picture signals. When pulling out a cable, be sure to
pull it out from the plug, not the cable itself.
Connecting with a Computer or a VCR
This section describes how to connect the projector to a computer or video
equipment.
For more information, refer to the computer’s instruction manual.
Notes
• The projector accepts VGA, SVGA, XGA, SXGA, SXGA+ and UXGA (60 Hz)
signals. However, we recommend that you set the output mode of your computer to
XGA mode for the external monitor.
• If you set your computer, such as a notebook type, to output the signal to both your
computer’s display and the external monitor, the picture of the projector may not
appear properly. Set your computer to output the signal to only the external monitor.
For details, refer to the computer’s operating instructions supplied with your
computer.
• If you connect a computer that can use the DDC function to the INPUT C connector
on this unit, the picture of the projector may not be displayed properly. In that case,
change the setting on your computer to disable the DDC function.
• This projector is compatible with a DDC2B (Digital Data Channel 2B). If your
computer is compatible with a DDC, turn the projector on according to the following
procedures.
1 Connect the projector to the computer by using the HD D-sub 15-pin cable or DVI
cable.

This projector has 46 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 36). You can also adjust the
preset data through the INPUT SETTING
menu.
This projector has 20 types of user memories
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 53 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.”
