Installation Methods
Warning
The projector supports the following four different projection methods.
Install the projector according to the conditions of the installation location.
• Project images from in front of
the screen. (Front projection)
• Project images from behind a
translucent screen. (Rear projection)
• A special method of installation is required when suspending the projector
from a ceiling (ceiling mount). If it is not installed correctly, it could fall
causing an accident and injury.
• If you use adhesives on the Ceiling mount fixing points to prevent the screws
from loosening, or if you use things such as lubricants or oils on the
projector, the projector case may crack causing it to fall from its ceiling
mount. This could cause serious injury to anyone under the ceiling mount
and could damage the projector.
When installing or adjusting the ceiling mount, do not use adhesives to
prevent the screws from loosening and do not use oils or lubricants and so
on.
Attention
• Suspend the projector from the
ceiling and project images from
in front of a screen. (Front/Ceiling projection)

Maintenance
This chapter provides information on maintenance procedures to ensure the best level of performance from the projector for a long time to come.
Cleaning
You should clean the projector if it becomes dirty or if the quality of
projected images starts to deteriorate.
Attention
89
Attention
Do not rub the lens with harsh materials or subject the lens to shocks, as it
can easily become damaged.
Turn off the projector's power before cleaning.
Cleaning the Air Filter
Cleaning the Projector's Surface
Clean the projector's surface by wiping it gently with a soft cloth.
If the projector is particularly dirty, moisten the cloth with water containing
a small amount of neutral detergent, and then firmly wring the cloth dry
before using it to wipe the projector's surface.
Attention
Do not use volatile substances such as wax, alcohol, or thinner to clean the
projector's surface. The quality of the case may change or become discolored.
Cleaning the Lens
Use a commercially available cloth for cleaning glasses to gently wipe the
lens.
Warning
Do not use sprays that contain flammable gas to remove dust and lint from the
lens. The projector may catch fire due to the high internal temperature of the
lamp.
Clean the air filter and the air intake vent when the following message is
displayed.
"The projector is overheating. Make sure nothing is blocking the air vent,
and clean or replace the air filter."
Attention
• If dust collects on the air filter, it can cause the internal temperature of the
projector to rise, and this can lead to problems with operation and shorten
the optical engine's service life. Clean the air filter immediately when the
message is displayed.
• Do not rinse the air filter in water. Do not use detergents or solvents.
Cleaning

Replacing the Lamp
Lamp replacement period
It is time to replace the lamp when:
• The following message is displayed.
"Time to replace the lamp. Please contact your Epson projector reseller or
visit www.epson.com to purchase."
• The lamp replacement message is set to appear after the following time
periods in order to maintain the initial brightness and quality of the projected
images.
When Power Consumption is set to Normal: About 3900 hours
When Power Consumption is set to ECO: About 4900 hours
s Settings - Power Consumption p.70
• If you continue to use the lamp after the replacement period has passed, the
possibility that the lamp may explode increases. When the lamp replacement
message appears, replace the lamp with a new one as soon as possible, even if
it is still working.
• Do not repeatedly turn off the power and immediately back on. Turning the
power on and off frequently may shorten the lamp's operating life.
• Depending on the characteristics of the lamp and the way it has been used,
the lamp may become darker or stop working before the lamp warning
message appears. You should always have a spare lamp unit ready in case it is
needed.
The message is displayed for 30 seconds.
• The lamp indicator flashes orange.
How to replace the lamp
The lamp can be replaced even when the projector is suspended from a
ceiling.
Replacing Consumables
92
Warning
• When replacing the lamp because it has stopped illuminating, there is a
possibility that the lamp may be broken. If replacing the lamp of a projector
which has been installed on the ceiling, you should always assume that the
lamp is cracked, and you should stand to the side of the lamp cover, not
underneath it. Remove the lamp cover gently.
• Never disassemble or remodel the lamp. If a modified or disassembled lamp
is installed in the projector and used, it could cause a fire, electric shock, or
an accident.
Caution
Wait until the lamp has cooled down sufficiently before removing the lamp
cover. If the lamp is still hot, burns or other injuries may result. It takes about
one hour after the power has been turned off for the lamp to be cool enough.

FCC Compliance Statement
For United States Users
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a
Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits
are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference
in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate
radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the
instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio or television
reception. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in
a particular installation. If this equipment does cause interference to radio
and 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.
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the separation 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.
WARNING
The connection of a non-shielded equipment interface cable to this
equipment will invalidate the FCC Certification or Declaration of this
device and may cause interference levels which exceed the limits established
by the FCC for this equipment. It is the responsibility of the user to obtain
and use a shielded equipment interface cable with this device. If this
equipment has more than one interface connector, do not leave cables
connected to unused interfaces. Changes or modifications not expressly
approved by the manufacturer could void the user's authority to operate the
equipment.

This section briefly explains the difficult terms that are not explained in the text of this guide. For details, refer to other commercially available publications.
Aspect Ratio
The ratio between an image's length and its height. Screens with a horizontal:vertical ratio of 16:9, such as HDTV screens, are known as wide screens.
SDTV and general computer displays have an aspect ratio of 4:3.
Component Video
A method that separates the video signal into a luminance component (Y), and a blue minus luminance (Cb or Pb) and a red minus luminance (Cr or
Pr).
Composite video
A method that combines the video signal into a luminance component and a color component for transmission down a single cable.
Contrast
The relative brightness of the light and dark areas of an image can be increased or decreased to make text and graphics stand out more clearly, or to
make them appear softer. Adjusting this particular property of an image is called contrast adjustment.
HDCP
HDCP is an abbreviation for High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection. It is used to prevent illegal copying and protect copyrights by encrypting
digital signals sent over DVI and HDMI ports. Because the HDMI port on this projector supports HDCP, it can project digital images protected by
HDCP technology. However, the projector may not be able to project images protected with updated or revised versions of HDCP encryption.
HDTV
An abbreviation for High-Definition Television that refers to high-definition systems which satisfy the following conditions.
• Vertical resolution of 720p or 1080i or greater (p = Progressiveg, i = Interlaceg)
• Screen aspect ratiog of 16:9
Interlace
Transmits information needed to create one screen by sending every other line, starting from the top of the image and working down to the bottom.
Images are more likely to flicker because one frame is displayed every other line.
Progressive
Projects information to create one screen at a time, displaying the image for one frame. Even though the number of scan lines is the same, the amount
of flicker in images decreases because the volume of information has doubled compared with an interlace system.
Refresh Rate
The light-emitting element of a display maintains the same luminosity and color for an extremely short time. Because of this, the image must be
scanned many times per second to refresh the light-emitting element. The number of refresh operations per second is called the Refresh Rate and is
expressed in hertz (Hz).
SDTV
An abbreviation for Standard Definition Television that refers to standard television systems which do not satisfy the conditions for HDTVg HighDefinition Television.
sRGB
An international standard for color intervals that was formulated so that colors that are reproduced by video equipment can be handled easily by
computer operating systems (OS) and the Internet. If the connected source has an sRGB mode, set both the projector and the connected signal source
to sRGB.
SVGA
A screen size standard with a resolution of 800 (horizontal) x 600 (vertical) dots.
S-Video
A method that separates the video signal into a luminance component (Y) and a color component (C).
SXGA
A screen size standard with a resolution of 1,280 (horizontal) x 1,024 (vertical) dots.
Sync.
The signals output from computers have a specific frequency. If the projector frequency does not match this frequency, the resulting images are not of
a good quality. The process of matching the phases of these signals (the relative position of the crests and the troughs in the signal) is called
Synchronization. If the signals are not synchronized, flickering, blurriness, and horizontal interference occur.
Glossary
110
Tracking
The signals output from computers have a specific frequency. If the projector frequency does not match this frequency, the resulting images are not of
a good quality. The process of matching the frequency of these signals (the number of crests in the signal) is called Tracking. If Tracking is not carried
out correctly, wide vertical stripes appear in the signal.
VGA
A screen size standard with a resolution of 640 (horizontal) x 480 (vertical) dots.
XGA
A screen size standard with a resolution of 1,024 (horizontal) x 768 (vertical) dots.
