Notes on use

In order to get the best picture quality

Draw curtains or blinds over any windows and turn off any lights near the screen to prevent outside light or light from indoor lamps from shining onto the screen.

Do not touch the surfaces of the lens with your bare hands.

If the surface of the lens becomes dirty from fingerprints or anything else, this will be magnified and projected onto the screen. Moreover, when not using the projector, retract the lens and then cover it with the lens cover.

Screen

Do not apply any volatile substances which may cause discolouration to the screen, and do not let it become dirty or damaged.

Lamp

The lamp may need to be replaced earlier due to variables such as individual lamp characteristics, usage conditions and the installation environment, especially when the projector is subjected to continuous use for more than

10 hours or the power is frequently turned on and off.

Liquid crystal panel

The liquid crystal panel of the projector is built with very high precision technology to provide fine picture details. Occasionally, a few non-active pixels may appear on the screen as fixed points of blue, green or red.

Please note that this does not affect the performance of your LCD.

Correcting keystone distortion

Keystone distortion is corrected automatically when the projector’s automatic setup function is used, but this correction will not apply if the screen itself is tilted. In such cases, you can correct the keystone distortion manually with the following procedure.

Vertical keystone distortion correction only.

Vertical keystone distortion correction

Operation

NOTE:

B If you press the AUTO SETUP button after correcting the keystone distortion manually, the automatic keystone correction function will operate and the corrected picture will return to its previous incorrect condition. To prevent this from happening, you can set “AUTO

KEYSTN” in the “OPTION” menu to “OFF”. (Refer to page 45.)

B Vertical keystone distortion can be corrected to ±30° of the angle of tilt.

However, the greater the correction amount, the more the picture quality will deteriorate, and the harder it will become to achieve a good level of focus. To obtain the best picture quality, set up the projector and screen in such a way that the amount of keystone correction required is as minimal as possible.

B The picture size will also change when correction of keystone distortion is carried out.

B The ratio of length and width of an image may become incorrect depending on the amount of the keystone correction.

B Keystone distortion of the on-screen display will not be corrected.

S1 video signals

B S1 video signals are a type of video signal with an aspect ratio of 16:9 which include a detector signal. This detector signal is output by some sources such as wide-vision video decks.

B When “ASPECT” is set to

“AUTO”, the projector recognizes the detector signal and automatically switches the aspect ratio to 16:9.

NOTE:

B If using this projector in places such as cafes or hotels to display programmes for a commercial purpose or for public presentation, note that if the aspect ratio (16:9) selection function is used to change the aspect ratio of the screen picture, you may be infringing the rights of the original copyright owner for that programme under copyright protection laws.

B If a 4:3 picture is projected onto a 16:9 screen, distortion may occur around the edges of the picture so that part of the picture is no longer visible.

Programmes which have 4:3 aspect ratios should be viewed in 4:3 mode to give proper consideration to the aims and intentions of the original programme’s creator.

RESIZING

This should normally be set to “ON”.

(This setting is only for signals which have lower resolutions than the LCD panels. Refer to page 62 for details.)

ON

The pixel resolution of the input signal is converted to the same resolution as the LCD panels before being projected.

This may sometimes cause problems with the quality of the picture.

OFF

The input signal is projected at its original resolution, with no pixel conversion. The projected picture will be smaller than normal, so adjust the zoom setting or move the projector forwards or backwards to adjust the picture size if necessary.

If set to “OFF”, some features, such as “D.ZOOM” (digital zoom),

“KEYSTONE” or “INDEX WINDOW” will not function.

FRAME LOCK

If the picture’s condition is bad while a RGB moving picture is projected, set “FRAME LOCK” to “ON”. Refer to page 62 for compatible RGB signals.

Replacing the lamp unit

Warning

When replacing the lamp, allow it to cool for at least one hour before handling it.

B The lamp cover gets very hot, and touching it can cause burns.

Notes on replacing the lamp unit

B The light generating lamp is made of glass, so dropping it or allowing it to hit hard objects may cause it to burst. Be careful when handling the lamp.

B Dispose of the removed old lamp with the same care that would be taken with a fluorescent light.

B A Phillips screwdriver is necessary for removing the lamp unit.

NOTE:

B The projector is not supplied with a replacement lamp unit.

Please ask your dealer for details. Lamp unit product no.: ET-LAB30

CAUTION:

B Do not use any lamp unit other than the one with the product number indicated above.

Lamp unit replacement period

The lamp is a consumable product.

Even when the full life of the bulb has not been exhausted, the brightness of the light will gradually decline. Therefore periodic replacement of the lamp is necessary.

The intended lamp replacement interval is 2 000 hours, but it is possible that the lamp may need to be replaced earlier due to variables such as a particular lamp’s characteristics, usage conditions and the installation environment.

Early preparation for lamp replacement is encouraged.

The lamp will automatically shut off after approximately 10 minutes when 2 000 hours of use have been reached because of a much greater chance of it exploding after this time.

NOTE:

B The usage hours explained above are for when “LAMP

POWER” in the “OPTION” menu has been set to “HIGH” and when “AI” in the

“PICTURE” menu has been set to “OFF”. If “LAMP POWER” is set to “LOW”, or “AI” is set to

“ON”, the life of the lamp can be extended.

B While 2 000 hours is the intended replacement interval, it is not a period of time covered by warranty.

Cleaning and maintenance

Before carrying out cleaning and maintenance, be sure to disconnect the mains plug from the mains socket.

Wipe the cabinet with a soft, dry cloth.

If the cabinet is particularly dirty, soak the cloth in water with a small amount of neutral detergent in it, squeeze the cloth very well, and then wipe the cabinet. After cleaning, wipe the cabinet dry with a dry cloth. If using a chemically-treated cloth, read the instructions supplied with the cloth before use.

Do not wipe the lens with a cloth that is dusty or which produces lint.

If any dust or lint gets onto the lens, such dust or lint will be magnified and projected onto the screen. Use a blower to clean any dust and lint from the lens surface, or use a soft cloth to wipe off any dust or lint.

Projection dimensions calculation methods

If the screen size (diagonal) is SD (m), then the following formula is used to calculate the projection distance for the wide lens position (LW) and the projection distance for the telephoto lens position (LT).

4:3

SD

LW/LT SW

Minimum Projection Distance

Maximum Projection Distance

LW=0.030xSD/0.0254-0.044

LT=0.036xSD/0.0254-0.044

For 16:9 aspect ratios, the following formula can be used to calculate the projection distance.

Minimum Projection Distance

Maximum Projection Distance

LW=0.033xSD/0.0254-0.044

LT=0.040xSD/0.0254-0.044

*The values obtained from the formulas above are approximate.
