Precautions
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 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 to 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 get your fingers caught in
the adjuster.
• Do not spread a cloth or paper under the
unit.
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.
Preventing internal heat build-up
The unit is equipped with ventilation holes
(intake) and ventilation holes (exhaust). Do
not block or place anything near these holes,
or internal heat build-up may occur, causing
picture degradation or damage to the
projector.
Cleaning
Before cleaning
Be sure to disconnect the AC power cord
from the AC outlet.
Cleaning the air filter
• Clean the air filter whenever you replace
the lamp.
• Refer to the “Cleaning the Air Filter” on
page 44 for the air filter cleaning.
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.
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.
Precautions
5
• 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
LCD data projector
• This LCD data projector is manufactured
using high-precision technology. You may,
however, see tiny black points and/or
bright points (red, blue, or green) that
appear continuously on the LCD data
projector. This is a normal result of the
manufacturing process and does not
indicate a malfunction.
When the images are projected onto the
screens from multiple LCD data
projectors, they may generate color
distinctions because each projector has its
own color balance even if the projectors
are the same models.
Do not install the projector in the following
situations. Installation is these situations
or locations may cause a malfunction or
damage to the unit.
Poorly ventilated locations
• 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
internal heat builds up due to blockage of
ventilation holes, the temperature sensor
will function, and the power will be turned
off automatically.
• Leave space of more than 30 cm (11 7/8
inches) around the unit.
• Be careful not to allow the ventilation
holes to inhale tiny objects such as pieces
of paper or clumps of dust.
6
Notes on Installation and Usage
Hot and humid
Very dusty, extremely smoky
locations
• Avoid installing the unit in a location
where the temperature or humidity is very
high, or the temperature is very low.
• To avoid moisture condensation, do not
install the unit in a location where the
temperature may rise rapidly.
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.
Locations subject to direct cool or
warm air from an air-conditioner
Unsuitable Conditions
Do not use the projector under the following
conditions.
Installing the projector in such a location
may cause a malfunction of the unit due to
moisture condensation or a rise in
temperature.
Do not stand the unit upright on
one side
Avoid using the unit standing upright on its
side. It may cause malfunction.
Near a heat or smoke sensor
Malfunction of the sensor may occur.
Do not tilt the unit to the right or left
Avoid tilting the unit to an angle of 15°, and
avoid installing the unit in any way other
than placing it on a level surface or
suspending from the ceiling. Such an
installation may cause color shading or
shorten the lamp life excessively.
Notes on Installation and Usage
7
Do not block the ventilation holes
Usage at High Altitude
When using the projector at an altitude of
1,500 m or higher, turn on “High
Altitude Mode” in the INSTALL SETTING
menu. Failing to set this mode when using
the projector at high altitudes could have
adverse effects, such as reducing
the reliability of certain components.
Avoid using a thick-piled carpet or anything
that covers the ventilation holes (exhaust/
intake); otherwise, 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.
Do not use the Security bar for
transporting or installation
Use the Security bar at the rear 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.

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 40). You can also adjust the
preset data through the INPUT SETTING
menu.
See the chart on page 52 to find if the signal
is registered in the preset memory.

Notes
• The receivable digital signals are preset signals of Memory No. 3 to 11, 26, 32, 37, 45, 50, 55 and
56 (VPL-EW5 only).
• When a signal other than the preset signals shown above is input, the picture may not be displayed
properly.
• When an SXGA+ signal is input, the image may extend beyond the edges of the screen. In this
case, input a signal with no black edges around the image, and disconnect and reconnect the cable
or select the input signal by pressing the INPUT key.
• If the resolution of the input signal is different from the panel resolution, the input signal is not
displayed in its own resolution, and letters or lines may be uneven.
