Maintenance
The projector needs proper maintenance. You should keep the lens clean as dust, dirt
or spots will project on the screen and diminish image quality. If any other parts need
replacing, contact your dealer or qualified service personnel. When cleaning any part
of the projector, always switch off and unplug the projector first.
Warning:
Never open any of the covers on the projector. Dangerous electrical voltages inside
the projector can cause severe injury. Do not attempt to service this product yourself.
Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.
Cleaning the Lens
Gently wipe the lens with lens cleaning paper. Do not touch the lens with your hands.
Cleaning the Projector Housing
Gently wipe with a soft cloth. If dirt and stains are not easily removed, use a soft cloth
damped with water, or water and neutral detergent, and wipe dry with a soft, dry cloth.
„
„
„
„
„
ViewSonic
Turn off the projector and remove the AC power cord from the power outlet
before beginning maintenance work.
Make sure the lens is cool before cleaning.
Do not use detergents or chemicals other than those noted above. Do not use
benzene or thinners.
Do not use chemical sprays.
Use a soft cloth or lens paper only.
18
PJ551D
Replacing the Lamp
As the projector operates over time, the brightness of the projector lamp gradually
decreases and the lamp becomes more susceptible to breakage. We recommend
replacing the lamp if a warning message is displayed. Do not attempt to replace the
lamp yourself. Contact the qualified service personnel for replacement.

ViewSonic
The lamp becomes high temperature after turning off the projector with the
power button. If you touch the lamp, you may scald your finger. When you
replace the lamp, wait for at least 45 minutes for the lamp to cool down.
Do not touch the lamp glass at any time. The lamp may explode due to
improper handling, including the touching of the lamp glass.
Lamp lifetime may differ from lamp to lamp and according to the environment
of use. There is no guarantee of the same lifetime for each lamp. Some lamps
may fail or terminate their lifetime in a shorter period of time than other similar
lamps.
A lamp may explode as a result of vibration, shock or degradation as a result of
hours of use as its lifetime draws to an end. Risk of explosion may differ
according to the environment or conditions in which the projector and lamp are
being used.
Wear protective gloves and eyeglasses when fixing or detaching the lamp.
Faster on-off-cycles will damage the lamp and reduce lamp life. Wait at least
for 5 minutes to turn off the projector after powering on.
Do not operate the lamp in proximity to paper, cloth, or other combustible
material nor cover it with such materials. Otherwise it could cause a fire.
Do not operate the lamp in an atmosphere containing an inflammable
substance, such as thinner. Otherwise it could cause a fire or explosion.
Thoroughly ventilate the area or the room when operating the lamp in an
oxygen atmosphere (in the air). If ozone is inhaled, it could cause headaches,
nausea, dizziness, etc.
The inorganic mercury is involved in the lamp. If the lamp bursts, the mercury
inside the lamp will go out of the projector. Leave the area immediately if the
lamp shatters while being operated and ventilate the area for at least 30
minutes in order to avoid the inhalation of mercury fumes. Otherwise it could be
harmful to user’s health.

Troubleshooting
Refer to the symptoms and measures listed below before sending the projector
forrepairs. If the problem persists, contact your local reseller or service center. Please
refer to "Indicator Messages" as well.
Start-up problems
If no lights turn on:
„ Be sure that the power cord is securely connected to the projector and the other end
is plugged into an outlet with power.
„ Press the power button again.
„ Unplug the power cord and wait for a short while, then plug it in and press the power
button again.
Image problems
If the searching source is displayed:
„ Press the Source button one or more times to select another active input source.
„ Be sure the external source is turned on and connected.
„ For a computer connection, ensure your notebook computer’s external video port is
turned on. Refer to the computer manual.
If the image is out of focus:
„ Be sure the lens cover is open.
„ While displaying the on-screen menu, adjust the focus ring. (The image size should
not change; if it does, you are adjusting the zoom, not the focus.)
„ Check the projection lens to see if it needs cleaning.
If the image is flickering or unstable for a computer connection:
„ Press the Resync button on the control panel or the Auto button on the remote
control.
„ Press the Menu button, go to Computer Image and adjust Frequency or
Tracking.
Remote control problems
If the remote control does not operate:
„ Be sure nothing is blocking the remote control receiver on the front or back of the
projector. Use the remote control within the effective range.
„ Aim the remote control at the screen or at the front or back of the projector.
„ Move the remote control so it is more directly in front of or behind the projector and
not as far to the side.
