Note: This equipment has been tested to comply with the
limits for a class A digital device in accordance with Part
15 of the FCC Rules as well as the European CE
marking.
Operation is subject to the following two conditions:
1. This device may not cause harmful interference, and
2. 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.

4. Projector Features
English
1. Keystone Correction
A keystoned image (picture top width larger than picture
bottom width or vice versa) appears when the relative
positions of the projector and the screen are not correct.
With the ‘Keystone correction’ feature you can correct this
picture distortion. Digital keystone correction is directly
accessible via the keyboard on the projector or via the
‘Settings’ menu of the On Screen Display menu.
The sensor of the wireless remote control allows you to
operate both your computer as well as your projector from
almost anywhere in the room. The directional shuttle on
the projector and on the remote control function as
Cursor Control and are used to manipulate the mouse
cursor on the connected computer, as long as the menu is
not active. When the menu is active, the Cursor Control
controls the menu cursor.
2. Auto setup functionality
Auto Standby
The ‘Auto Standby’ feature automatically switches the
projector to standby when no signal inputs are detected for
30 minutes. This setting can be changed in the ‘Settings’
menu.
Auto Image
The ‘Auto Image’ feature automatically sizes and positions
the image, to optimally fit the screen picture. It is
applicable for data input only and accessible in the ‘Display’
menu of the On Screen Display menu. Manual settings of
Horizontal Size, Shift and Phase remain possible by
switching Auto Image off. The projector is fully PC and
MAC compatible.
The local keyboard provides direct access keys for those
functions that are most often used during set-up of the
projector. The remote control provides keys for those
functions that are most often used during presentations.
For a complete overview of keyboard and remote control
keys, see the Functional Overview in the next paragraph.
3. USB
The USB (Universal Serial Bus) connector allows you to
connect to computers equipped with a USB interface,
resulting in real hot plug and play presentation.
Mouse control:
By connecting USB, the mouse function on the Remote
Control automatically gets installed. You can now
manipulate the mouse cursor on the computer and on the
screen, using Cursor Control.
Audio:
Audio information from the computer will be heard via the
projector speaker.
Note: Based on the specific hardware and software
configuration available, Apple Macintosh computer
users could experience incomplete or erratic
USB -functionality. These problems are not related to
the performance of your projector.
4. Digital features
The digital features of the projector are of great value for an
attractive presentation. With ‘Digital Zoom’ a specific part
of the projected image can be enlarged. The ‘digital freeze’
feature enables you to capture moving pictures (still
picture).
5. Very easy to install and operate
The OSD (On Screen Display) information screens and
menus in 7 languages provide you with additional
information to help you make the right choices about
installation and operation, and to perform the correct
actions.
The standard OSD language is English. In addition you can
select French, Spanish, German, Italian, Portuguese and
Chinese.
6
6. External monitor connection
A separate external monitor (or a second projector) can be
connected to the projector. The image projected is
simultaneously shown on the monitor, but not when the
projector is in power standby mode.
7. High reliability and excellent brightness
The UHP lamp guarantees long life, excellent brightness
over the lamp’s lifetime and excellent colour reproduction.
Furthermore, the projector has an excellent brightness- and
colour uniformity over the entire picture.
8. Excellent video quality
The projector accepts the input signal of all major video
formats, including PAL, SECAM, NTSC, S-Video, HDTV and
Component video signals. The projector will recognize
these standards and adapt to them automatically. With the
‘picture format’ feature you can select one of three picture
format options 4:3, 16:9 or 16:9 enlarged.
9. Stereo Audio Output
A standard 3.5 mm audio plug is available for connecting
external audio equipment via a standard 3.5 mm stereo
plug. Constant (‘Line’) or variable (‘Regulated’) audio output
volume can be selected in the ‘Audio’ menu.
10. Adjustable Screen Capability
The diagonal picture size of the display can be set from
21" (0.53 m) to 262" (6.6 m).
11. Ceiling Mount and Rear Screen projection
The projector is equipped with a full mirror scan conversion
function (‘vertical/horizontal mirror’), which allows the
image to be reversed for ceiling mount as well as for rear
projection applications.
