About Remote Commander operation

• Direct the Remote Commander toward the remote control detector.

• The shorter the distance between the

Remote Commander and the projector is, the wider the angle within which the

Remote Commander can control the projector becomes.

• Make sure that nothing obstructs the infrared beam between the Remote

Commander and the remote control detector on the projector.

Check if the connecting cable is connected to external equipment firmly.

Check if the computer signal is set for output to an external monitor. If you set your computer, such as a notebook computer, to output the signal to both your computer’s display and an external monitor, the picture of the external monitor may not appear properly. Set your computer to output the signal to only an external monitor.

Check if the input source is correctly selected.

Symptom

The image is noisy.

No sound.

The Remote

Commander does not work.

The fan is noisy.

Remedy

Check if the connecting cable is connected to external equipment properly.

Check that the connecting cables between the projector and external video or audio equipment are securely connected.

Check if the output setting of connected external audio equipment is set to output the audio signal from the projector.

Check if the connecting cable is connected to external equipment firmly.

Audio is not output if audio muting is activated.

Check if “Volume” is not set to minimum.

Check that the batteries are installed correctly.

Check that the batteries are not exhausted.

The sound from the fan is often greater than normal to cool the lamp, etc. in the following cases.

• “Lamp Mode” is set to “High.”

• “High Altitude Mode” is set to “On.”

• The unit is used in the location where the temperature is high.

If the ventilation holes are blocked, the internal temperature of the projector rises and the fan noise becomes larger.

Troubleshooting

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 33, 34).

Use an LMP-C280 projector lamp (not supplied) for replacement.

1

Turn off the projector, and disconnect the AC power cord from a wall outlet.

Caution

• The lamp remains hot after the projector is turned off.

If you touch the lamp, you may burn your finger. When you replace the lamp, wait for at least an hour after turning off the projector for the lamp to cool sufficiently.

• Do not allow any metallic or inflammable objects into the lamp replacement slot after removing the lamp, otherwise it may cause electrical shock or fire. Do not put your hands into the slot.

Notes

If the lamp breaks, contact qualified

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.

2

When the lamp has cooled sufficiently, open the lamp cover by loosening 3 screws.

You can remove the lamp cover for a while when installing on the ceiling.

Take care to prevent the lamp cover from falling down, as it is not fixed.

Do not apply pressure to the lamp cover while it is open.

Replacing the Lamp

37

3

Loosen the 3 screws on the lamp then pull out the lamp by its grab.

Grab

4

Insert the new lamp all the way in until it is securely in place. Tighten the

3 screws.

7

Reset the lamp timer for notification of the next replacement time.

Select “Lamp Timer Reset” on the SET

SETTING menu then press the ENTER key. When a message appears, select

“Yes” to reset the lamp timer (page 25).

Caution

Disposal of the used lamp

For the customers in the USA

Lamp in this product contains mercury.

Disposal of these materials may be regulated due to environmental considerations. For disposal or recycling information, please contact your local authorities or the

Telecommunications Industry

Association (www.eiae.org).

5

Close the lamp cover and tighten the

3 screws.

Note

Be sure to install the lamp and Lamp cover securely as it was. If not, the projector cannot be turned on.

6

Connect the AC power cord to a wall outlet and turn on the projector.

38

Replacing the Lamp

Cleaning the Air Filter

When a message appears on the projected image, clean the air filter (page 34).

If the dust cannot be removed from the air filter even after cleaning, replace the air filter with a new one. For details on a new air filter, consult with qualified Sony personnel.

Caution

If you neglect to clean the air filter, dust may accumulate, clogging it. As a result, the temperature may rise inside the unit, leading to a possible malfunction or fire.

1

Turn off the projector, and disconnect the AC power cord from the AC outlet.

2

Draw out the air filter cover.

The air filter consists of 2 filters.

Upper filter: Black

Lower filter: Gray

Air filter cover

4

Attach the air filter cover to the unit.

Note

Be sure to attach the air filter cover firmly.

Incorrect attachment of the cover may cause a malfunction.

Note

If you remove the air filter cover when power is turned on and the AC power cord is not removed from the AC outlet, avoid touching the fan inside the unit, as it may cause injury.

• An input signal meant for screen resolution different from that of the panel will not be displayed in its original resolution. Text and lines may be uneven.

Projection Distance and Lens Shift Range

The following describes the projection distance and height from lens center to bottom of screen by each projected screen size.

The projection distance is the distance between the front of the lens and the surface of the projected image.

Height H is the height from the bottom of the projected image (top for ceiling mount) to A

(determined by drawing a perpendicular line from lens center to projected image surface). For this unit, the same projection distance calculations apply to both floor and ceiling installation.

Caution

Never mount the projector on the ceiling or move it by yourself. Be sure to consult with qualified Sony personnel (charged).

The lens shift range represents the distance in percent (%) by which the lens can be shifted from the initial position of the projected image, with full width or full height of the projected image regarded as 100%.
