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
unit. Do not push hard on the top of the
unit with the adjuster out.
• Be sure to grasp both sides of the unit with
both hands when carrying the unit.
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.
• Cover any windows that face the screen
with opaque draperies.
• It is desirable to install the unit in a room
where floor and walls are not of lightreflecting material. If the floor and walls
are of reflecting material, it is
recommended that the carpet and wall
paper be changed to a dark color.
6
Precautions
On preventing internal heat buildup
• After you turn off the power with the I / 1
key on the control panel or on the Remote
Commander, do not disconnect the unit
from the wall outlet while the cooling fan
is still running.
Caution
The unit is equipped with ventilation holes
(intake) at the bottom and ventilation holes
(exhaust) at the side. Do not block or place
anything near these holes, or internal heat
build-up may occur, causing picture
degradation or damage to the unit.
On cleaning
Before cleaning
Be sure to disconnect the AC power cord
from the AC outlet.
On cleaning the air filter
• Clean the air filter whenever you replace
the lamp.
• Refer to the “Cleaning the Air Filter” on
page 48 for the air filter cleaning.
On cleaning the lens
The lens surface is especially treated to
reduce reflection of light.
As incorrect maintenance may impair the
performance of the projector, take care with
respect to the following:
• 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.
• Wipe the lens gently with a soft cloth such
as a cleaning cloth or glass cleaning cloth.
• Stubborn stains may be removed with a
soft cloth such as a cleaning cloth or glass
cleaning cloth lightly dampened with
water.
• Never use solvent such as alcohol, benzene
or thinner, or acid, alkaline or abrasive
detergent, or chemical cleaning cloth, as
they will damage the lens surface.
On cleaning the cabinet
• Clean the cabinet gently with a soft dry
cloth. Stubborn stains may be removed
with a cloth lightly dampened with mild
detergent solution, followed by wiping
with a soft dry cloth.
• Use of alcohol, benzene, thinner or
insecticide may damage the finish of the
cabinet or remove the indications on the
cabinet. Do not use these chemicals.
• If you rub on the cabinet with a stained
cloth, the cabinet may be scratched.
• If the cabinet is in contact with a rubber or
vinyl resin product for a long period of
time, the finish of the cabinet may
deteriorate or the coating may come off.
Notes on Installation
and Usage
Unsuitable Installation
Do not install the unit in the following
situations. These installations may cause
malfunction or damage to the unit.
Poorly ventilated
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.
• Allow adequate air circulation to prevent
internal heat build-up. Do not place the
unit on surfaces (rugs, blankets, etc.) or
near materials (curtains, draperies) that
may block the ventilation holes.
• When the internal heat builds up due to the
block-up, the temperature sensor will
function with the message “High temp.!
Lamp off in 1 min.” The power will be
turned off automatically after one minute.
• Leave space of more than 30 cm (11 7/8
inches) around the unit.
• Be careful that the ventilation holes may
inhale tininess such as a piece of paper.
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
temperature may rise rapidly.
Notes on Installation and Usage
7
Subject to direct cool or warm air
from an air-conditioner
Installing in such a location may cause
malfunction of the unit due to moisture
condensation or rise in temperature.
Near a heat or smoke sensor
Malfunction of the sensor may be caused.
Very dusty, extremely smoky
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 air
filter whenever you replace the lamp.
8
Notes on Installation and Usage
Usage in High Altitude
When using the unit at an altitude of 1,500 m
or higher, set the “High Altitude Mode” to
“On” in the Installation menu. Failing to set
this mode when using the unit at high
altitudes could have adverse effects, such as
reducing the reliability of certain
components.
Note on the screen
When using a screen with an uneven surface,
stripes pattern may rarely appear on the
screen depending on the distance between
the screen and the unit or the zooming
magnifications. This is not a malfunction of
the unit.
Unsuitable Conditions
Do not use the Security bar for
transporting or installation
Do not use the unit under the following
conditions.
Do not topple the unit
Avoid using as the unit topples over on its
side. It may cause malfunction.
Do not tilt right/left
Use the Security bar at the side of the
projector for a purpose of preventing theft,
by attaching a commercially available theft
prevention cable for example. If you lift the
projector by holding the Security bar, or
hang the projector by using this bar, it may
cause the projector to fall or be damaged.
Avoid using as the unit tilts more than 20
degrees. Do not install the unit other than on
the floor or ceiling. These installations may
cause malfunction.
Do not block the ventilation holes
Avoid using something to cover over the
ventilation holes (exhaust/intake);
otherwise, the internal heat may build up.
Do not place a blocking object just
in front of the lens
Do not place any object just in front of the
lens that may block the light during
projection. Heat from the light may damage
the object. Use the PIC MUTING key to cut
off the picture.

About the Preset Memory No.
This projector has 43 types (VPL-CX100/
CX120/CX125/CX150/CX155) or 44 types
(VPL-CW125) 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 on the Information menu (see
page 44). You can also adjust the preset data
through the Signal menu.
This projector has 20 types of user memories
for each of Input A and Input B 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 using
the Signal menu, it will be registered in the
projector. If more than 20 user memory
items are registered, the newest memory
always overwrites the oldest one.
See the chart on page 58 to find if the signal
is registered in the preset memory.
Since the data for the following signals is
recalled from the preset memory, you can

Notes for VPL-CW125 only
• The projected image size is the one when “Aspect” on the Signal menu is set to “Full 2”. When
“Aspect” on the Signal menu is set to other than “Full 2”, black bands appear at the top and bottom
or right and left of the screen.
• When “Aspect” in the Signal menu is set to “4:3”, the projected image size (diagonal) will be
approximately 84 % of “Full 2” size.
• When “Aspect” in the Signal menu is set to “16:9”, the projected image size (diagonal) will be
approximately 99 % of “Full 2” size.
The alphabetical letters in the charts and calculation methods indicate the following.

Notes
• If “V Keystone” is set to “Auto,” the “Side Shot” adjustment area may be narrow.
• “V Keystone” on the Installation menu is set to “Auto” at the factory, and the vertical distortion of
the picture is automatically corrected. However, the distortion may not be perfectly corrected
depending on the room temperature or the screen angle. In this case, set this item to “Manual,” and
correct the distortion using input values.
