This device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference when the equipment is operated in a commercial environment. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the user’s guide, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. Operation of this equipment in a residential area is likely to cause harmful interference in which case the user will be required to correct the interference at his own expense. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures: – Reorientate or relocate the receiving antenna. – Increase the distance between the equipment and receiver. – Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected. – Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help. FCC Warning: To assure continued compliance, use only the provided grounded mains supply lead and shielded interface cables when connecting this device to a computer. Also, any unauthorized changes or modifications to this equipment could void the user’s authority to operate this device. Note: This Marantz projector uses three LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) panels.These panels contain a total of 1,440,000 (for SVGA projectors) or 2,359,296 (for XGA projector) pixels. As with any equipment, certain tolerances apply to the performance specification of the product. Your projector might have some inactive pixels - within acceptable tolerances - which may result in illuminated or dark dots on the picture screen. These inactive pixels will not affect the overall picture quality or the life expectancy of the projector. VP7200 page 5 S CAUTION: Please read all of these instructions before you operate your projector. Save these instructions for future reference. Electrical energy can perform many useful functions. This projector has been engineered and manufactured to meet applicable safety standards. IMPROPER USE CAN RESULT IN POTENTIAL ELECTRICAL SHOCK OR FIRE HAZARDS. In order not to defeat the safeguards incorporated into this projector, observe the following basic rules for its installation, use and servicing. 1. Unplug the projector from the wall socket before cleaning or lamp replacement. 2. Do not use liquid cleaners or aerosol cleaners. Use a soft dry cloth to clean the projector unit. If the unit is very dirty, wet a cloth with neutral detergent, squeeze it tight, wipe the unit with it, and finish by wiping with a dry cloth. Do not use a chemical duster or polisher-cleaner because it can adversely affect the unit and peel the paint. 3. Do not use attachments not recommended by MARANTZ, as they may cause hazards. 4. Do not use the projector near water- for example, near a bathtub, washbowl, kitchen sink, or laundry tub, in a wet basement, near a swimming pool, etc. Never spill liquid into the projector. 5. Do not place the projector on an unstable cart, stand, or table. The projector may fall, which may cause serious injury to a child or an adult and/or serious damage to the unit. Use only with a cart or stand recommended by its manufacturer as being suitable for use with a projector. 6. Ceiling, wall or shelf mounting should be done with a mounting kit approved by the manufacturer for use with a projector and should follow the manufacturer’s instructions. 7. Projector equipment and cart combinations should be moved with care. Quick stops, excessive force, and uneven surfaces may cause the equipment and cart combination to overturn. 8. Slots and openings of the cabinet are provided for ventilation. To ensure reliable operation of the projector and to protect it from overheating, these openings must not be blocked or covered. These openings should never be covered with cloth or other material. The bottom opening should not be blocked by placing the projector on a bed, sofa, rug, or other similar surface. The projector should not be placed near or over a radiator or heating vent. The projector should not be placed in a built-in installation such as a bookcase unless proper ventilation is provided. 9. The projector should be operated only from the type of mains source indicated on the side of the projector or in the specifications and with the appropriate mains lead. If you are not sure of the type of mains supplied to your business or the right type of mains lead, consult your projector dealer or local power company. 10. Do not allow anything to rest on the mains lead. Do not place the projector where the lead will be walked on. 11. Follow all warnings and instructions marked on the projector. 12. As a safety feature, this projector is equipped with mains lead with a 3-pin grounded plug (for USA-versions only) or a 2-pin grounded plug (for European versions only). The 3-pin/2-pin grounded plug will fit only into a grounding type mains outlet. If the plug does not fit, use an adapter that is properly grounded or have an electrician install a grounded type outlet. Do not attempt to modify this AC plug. 13. For added protection of the projector during a lightning storm, or when it is left unattended or not in use for long periods of time, unplug it from the wall socket and disconnect any cable systems. This will prevent damage to the projector due to lightning and power-line surges. 14. Do not overload wall sockets and extension leads with too many products, because this can cause a fire or electric shock. 15. Never push objects of any kind into the projector through cabinet slots as they may touch dangerous voltage points or short cut parts, which could result in a fire or electric shock. 16. Do not attempt to service the projector yourself other than maintenance issues presented in chapter ‘Maintenance’. Opening or removing covers may expose you to dangerous voltage or other hazards. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel. 17. Unplug the projector from the wall socket and refer servicing to qualified service personnel under the following conditions: A. When the mains lead or plug is damaged or frayed. B. If liquid has been spilled into the projector. C. If the projector has been exposed to rain or water. D. If the projector does not operate normally when you follow the operating instructions. Adjust only those controls that are covered by the operating instructions; improper adjustment of other controls may cause damage and will often require extensive work by a qualified technician to restore the projector to normal operation. E. If the projector has been dropped or the cabinet has been damaged. F. When the projector exhibits a distinct change in performance – (this indicates a need for service). 18. Upon completion of any service or repairs to the projector, ask the service technician to perform a routine safety check to check that the projector is in safe operating condition. 19. When replacement parts are required, be sure the service technician has used replacement parts specified by the manufacturer that have the same characteristics as the original parts. Unauthorized substitutions may result in fire, electric shock, or other hazards. 20. It is recommended to clean the air filter after every 100 lamp hours. The projector may become too hot if the filter is not cleaned when required. 21. If the lens becomes dirty or smudged, clean it with a clean, dampened cloth. Never touch the lens with your fingers. 22. Do not look directly into the aperture and lens while operating the projector as this may damage your eyes. 23. Please allow cool down of the projector for a few minutes before switching off the mains. 24. Please dispose of batteries and lamp in special chemical disposal bins. 5 English 3.
