*1: • Note that if the projector is used for profit or for public viewing, modifying the original picture
by switching to the aspect mode may constitute an infringement of the rights of authors or
producers, which are legally protected.
• Depending on the input signal, setting items for aspect ratio or some other setting items cannot
be set in some cases, or changing the aspect ratio setting may have no effect.
• A part of the image may be displayed in black, depending on the setting item.

On/Off: When set to “On,” you can turn the power on without going to
Standby mode when the AC power cord is connected to a wall outlet.
With the projector turned off, you can also unplug the AC power cord
without going to Standby mode, regardless of the Direct Power On
setting.
Notes
*1: This may not be optimum depending on the input signal. In this case, set manually according to
the connected equipment.
*2: Select “Off” to avoid entering standby mode when there is no input signal.
*3: This varies depending on the “Lamp Mode” setting.
*4: As the lamp is dimmed gradually, you may not notice any change in brightness. You might only
notice that the lamp has dimmed when its brightness is restored after there is a change in input
signal.
*5: This mode does not work for about three minutes after the lamp lights. A change in signal may
not be detected depending on the input image. The lamp may become brighter at intervals if you
continue to use the projector during lamp dimming. However, this is not a malfunction. If With
No Input is set, it takes priority.

Messages List
Reduces lamp output when “With Static Signal” is set. When
any change in signal is detected, or an operation (remote
control or control panel) is performed, normal brightness is
restored.
Troubleshooting
Before asking to have the projector repaired, try to diagnose the problem, following the
instructions below.
Remedy
The power is not turned
on.
Check if the AC power cord is firmly connected.
–
When the “Control Key Lock” is set to “On,” you cannot turn
on the projector using the ?/1 key on the projector.
21
If the lamp or lamp cover is not attached securely, the projector
cannot be turned on.
29
Check if the connecting cable is connected to external
equipment firmly.
7
Check the computer signal is set for output to an external
monitor only. If you set your computer to output to both the
computer’s display and an external monitor, the external
monitor image may not be displayed properly. Set your
computer to output to only an external monitor.
9
Check if the input source is correctly selected.
9
Check if the picture is muted.
6
On-screen display does
not appear.
The on-screen display does not appear when “Status” in the
Operation menu is set to “Off.”
21
The aspect ratio of the
display is not right/the
image is displayed
smaller /a portion of
image does not appear.
The image may not display correctly because the input signal 5, 16,
cannot be judged correctly. In this case, set “Aspect” manually. 18
The image is a
trapezoid.
The images become trapezoidal because of the projection
angle. In this case, you can correct the trapezoidal distortion,
using a Keystone feature.

When the “V Keystone” is set to “Manual,” the keystone
feature does not work automatically. Set “V Keystone” to

The image will be dark when the lamp is burnt out. Check
“Lamp Timer,” and replace the lamp with a new one if
necessary.

When video signal is not input, the lamp is dimmed to reduce
power consumption.
–
When the lamp is dimmed for a long time, brightness may
increase temporarily, but this is not malfunction.
–
When the “Lamp Mode” is set to “Auto,” the luminance of the
lamp changes according to the input image.
22
Check if the projector is in focus.
10
The picture will not be clear if condensation has accumulated
on the lens. In this case, let the projector sit for about two
hours with the power on.
–
The image is noisy.
Check if the connecting cable is connected to the external
equipment properly.

The sound from the fan is often greater than normal to cool the 22, 23
lamp, etc. in the following cases.
• “Lamp Mode” is set to “High.”
• The unit is used at a high altitude. “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.

Replacing the Lamp
Replace the lamp with a new one if a message displayed on the projected image (page 26).
Use an LMP-D213 projector lamp (not supplied) for replacement.
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.
1
Turn off the projector, and disconnect
the AC power cord from a wall outlet.
2
When the lamp has cooled
sufficiently, open the lamp cover by
loosening one screw.
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.
Note
For safety reasons, do not loosen any other
screws.

Projection Distance
The projection distance is the distance between the front of the lens and the surface of the
projected image. The following describes the projection distance and height from the center of
the lens to edge of screen by each projected screen size. 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 the center of the lens to projected image surface).
Caution
Never mount the projector on the ceiling or move it by yourself. Be sure to consult with
qualified Sony personnel (charged).
