10°
Fire and Shock Precautions
• Ensure that there is sufficient ventilation and that vents are unobstructed to prevent the build-up of heat inside your
projector. Allow at least 4 inches (10cm) of space between your projector and a wall.
• Do not try to touch the ventilation outlet on the left front (when seen from the front) as it can become heated while
the projector is turned on and immediately after the projector is turned off.
• Prevent foreign objects such as paper clips and bits of paper from falling into your projector. Do not attempt to
retrieve any objects that might fall into your projector. Do not insert any metal objects such as a wire or screwdriver
into your projector. If something should fall into your projector, disconnect it immediately and have the object removed
by a qualified service personnel.
• Do not place any objects on top of the projector.
• Do not touch the power plug during a thunderstorm. Doing so can cause electrical shock or fire.
• The projector is designed to operate on a power supply of 100-240V AC 50/60 Hz. Ensure that your power supply
fits this requirement before attempting to use your projector.
• Do not look into the lens while the projector is on. Serious damage to your eyes could result.
• Keep any items such as magnifying glass out of the light path of the projector. The light being projected from the
lens is extensive, therefore any kind of abnormal objects that can redirect light coming out of the lens, can cause
unpredictable outcome such as fire or injury to the eyes.
• Do not cover the lens with the black lens cap or equivalent while the projector is on. Doing so can lead to melting of
the cap and possibly burning your hands due to the heat emitted from the light output.
• Do not place any objects, which are easily affected by heat, in front of the projector lens or a projector exhaust vent.
Doing so could lead to the object melting or getting your hands burned from the heat that is emitted from the light
output and exhaust.
• Handle the power cable carefully. A damaged or frayed power cable can cause electric shock or fire.
- Do not use any power cables than the supplied one.
- Do not bend or tug the power cable excessively.
- Do not place the power cable under the projector, or any heavy object.
- Do not cover the power cable with other soft materials such as rugs.
- Do not heat the power cable.
- Do not handle the power plug with wet hands.
• Turn off the projector, unplug the power cable and have the object removed by a qualified NEC service personnel
under the following conditions:
- When the power cable or plug is damaged or frayed.
- If liquid has been spilled into the projector, or if it has been exposed to rain or water.
- If the projector does not operate normally when you follow the instructions described in this user's manual.
- If the projector has been dropped or the cabinet has been damaged.
- If the projector exhibits a distinct change in performance, indicating a need for service.
- If the projector is not to be used for an extended period of time.
• Disconnect the power cable and any other cables before carrying the projector.
• Turn off the projector and unplug the power cable before cleaning the cabinet or replacing the lamp.
iii
Important Information
CAUTION
• Do not use the tilt-foot for purposes other than originally intended. Misuses such as gripping the tilt-foot or
hanging on the wall can cause damage to the projector.
• Do not send the projector in the soft case by parcel delivery service or cargo shipment. The projector inside
the soft case could be damaged.
• When carrying the projector by the carrying handle, make sure the two screws that attach the carrying handle
to the projector cabinet are tight.
Insufficient tightening of the two screws could result in the projector falling and causing injury.
• Select [High] in Fan mode if you continue to use the projector for consecutive days. (From the menu, select
[Setup] → [Options] → [Fan Mode] → [High].)
• Do not turn off the AC power by pressing the main power switch or by unplugging the power cable when the
projector is powered on.
• Do not turn off the AC power for 60 seconds after the lamp is turned on and while the POWER indicator is blinking
green. Doing so could cause premature lamp failure.
Remote Control Precautions
•
Handle the remote control carefully.
•
If the remote control gets wet, wipe it dry immediately.
•
Avoid excessive heat and humidity.
•
Do not heat, take apart, or throw batteries into fire.
•
If you will not be using the remote control for a long time, remove the batteries.
•
Ensure that you have the batteries’ polarity (+/-) aligned correctly.
•
Do not use new and old batteries together, or use different types of batteries together.
•
Dispose of used batteries according to your local regulations.
Lamp Replacement
•
To replace the lamp, follow all instructions provided on page 52.
•
Be sure to replace the lamp when the message [The lamp has reached the end of its usable life. Please
replace the lamp.] appears. If you continue to use the lamp after the lamp has reached the end of its usable
life, the lamp bulb may shatter, and pieces of glass may be scattered in the lamp case. Do not touch them as
the pieces of glass may cause injury.
If this happens, contact your dealer for lamp replacement.
A Lamp Characteristic
The projector has a high-pressure mercury lamp as a light source.
A lamp has a characteristic that its brightness gradually decreases with age. Also repeatedly turning the lamp on
and off will increase the possibility of its lower brightness.
CAUTION:
When removing the lamp from a ceiling-mounted projector, make sure that no one is under the projector. Glass
fragments could fall if the lamp has been burned out.

• The infrared signal operates by line-of-sight up to a distance of about 22 feet/7 m and within a 60-degree angle of
the remote sensor on the projector cabinet.
• The projector will not respond if there are objects between the remote control and the sensor, or if strong light falls
on the sensor. Weak batteries will also prevent the remote control from properly operating the projector.

WARNING
Reflecting the Image
* Installing your projector on the ceiling must be done
by a qualified technician. Contact your NEC dealer
for more information.
* Do not attempt to install the projector yourself.
• Only use your projector on a solid, level surface. If the
projector falls to the ground, you can be injured and
the projector severely damaged.
• Do not use the projector where temperatures vary
greatly. The projector must be used at temperatures
between 41˚F (5˚C) and 104˚F (40˚C) (Eco mode
selected automatically at 95˚F to 104˚F/35˚C to 40˚C).
• Do not expose the projector to moisture, dust, or
smoke. This will harm the screen image.
• Ensure that you have adequate ventilation around your
projector so heat can dissipate. Do not cover the vents
on the side or the front of the projector.
Using a mirror to reflect your projector’s image enables
you to enjoy a much larger image when a smaller space
is required. Contact your NEC dealer if you need a mirror
system. If you're using a mirror system and your image
is inverted, use the MENU and SELECT buttons on your
projector cabinet or your remote control to correct the
orientation. (→ page 45)

2. Installation and Connections
� Making Connections
NOTE: When using with a notebook PC, be sure to connect the projector and notebook PC while the projector is in standby mode
and before turning on the power to the notebook PC.
In most cases the output signal from the notebook PC is not turned on unless connected to the projector before being powered
up.
* If the screen goes blank while using your remote control, it may be the result of the computer's screen-saver or power
management software.
Enabling the computer’s external display
Displaying an image on the notebook PC’s screen does not necessarily mean it outputs a signal to the projector.
When using a PC compatible laptop, a combination of function keys will enable/disable the external display.
Usually, the combination of the ‘Fn” key along with one of the 12 function keys gets the external display to come on or
off. For example, NEC laptops use Fn + F3, while Dell laptops use Fn + F8 key combinations to toggle through
external display selections.
Connecting Your PC or Macintosh Computer
NOTE: • VT695/VT595: The COMPUTER 1 connector supports Plug & Play (DDC2).
• VT590/VT490/VT59/VT49: The COMPUTER connector supports Plug & Play (DDC2).

2. Installation and Connections
When Viewing a DVI Digital Signal (VT695/VT595)
To project a DVI digital signal, be sure to connect the PC and the projector using a DVI cable (not supplied) before
turning on your PC or projector. Turn on the projector first and select Computer 2 (Digital) from the source menu
before turning on your PC.
Failure to do so may not activate the digital output of the graphics card resulting in no picture being displayed. Should
this happen, restart your PC.
Do not disconnect the DVI cable while the projector is running. If the signal cable has been disconnected and then reconnected, an image may not be correctly displayed. Should this happen, restart your PC.
NOTE:
• Use a DVI cable or the one compliant with DDWG (Digital Display Working Group) DVI (Digital Visual Interface) revision 1.0
standard. The DVI cable should be within 5 m (196") long. Both single and dual types of DVI cable can be used.
• The DVI (DIGITAL) connector accepts VGA (640x480), SVGA (800x600), 1152x864, XGA (1024x768) and SXGA (1280x1024 @

This section describes the simple maintenance procedures you should follow to clean the filters and replace the lamp.
� Cleaning or Replacing the Filters
The air-filter sponge keeps dust and dirt from getting inside the projector and should be cleaned after every 100 hours
of operation (more often in dusty conditions). If the filter is dirty or clogged, your projector may overheat.
CAUTION
•
Turn off the projector, turn off the main power switch and unplug the projector before replacing the filters.
•
Only clean the outside of the filter cover with a vacuum cleaner.
•
Do not attempt to operate the projector without the filter cover.
To clean the air-filter:

If there is no picture, or the picture is not displayed correctly.
•
Power on process for the projector and the PC.
Be sure to connect the projector and notebook PC while the projector is in standby mode and before turning on
the power to the notebook PC.
In most cases the output signal from the notebook PC is not turned on unless connected to the projector before
being powered up.
NOTE: You can check the horizontal frequency of the current signal in the projector’s menu under Information. If it reads
“0kHz”, this means there is no signal being output from the computer. (→ page 48 or go to next step)
•
Enabling the computer’s external display.
Displaying an image on the notebook PC’s screen does not necessarily mean it outputs a signal to the projector. When using a PC compatible laptop, a combination of function keys will enable/disable the external display.
Usually, the combination of the ‘Fn” key along with one of the 12 function keys gets the external display to come
on or off. For example, NEC laptops use Fn + F3, while Dell laptops use Fn + F8 key combinations to toggle
through external display selections.
•
Non-standard signal output from the computer
If the output signal from a notebook PC is not an industry standard, the projected image may not be displayed
correctly. Should this happen, deactivate the notebook PC’s LCD screen when the projector display is in use.
Each notebook PC has a different way of deactivate/reactivate the local LCD screens as described in the
previous step. Refer to your computer’s documentation for detailed information.
•
Image displayed is incorrect when using a Macintosh
When using a Macintosh with the projector, set the DIPswitch of the Mac adapter (not supplied with the projector) according to your resolution. After setting, restart your Macintosh for the changes to take affect.
For setting display modes other than those supported by your Macintosh and the projector, changing the DIP
switch on a Mac adapter may bounce an image slightly or may display nothing. Should this happen, set the DIP
switch to the 13” fixed mode and then restart your Macintosh. After that, restore the DIP switches to a
displayable mode and then restart the Macintosh again.
NOTE: A Video Adapter cable manufactured by Apple Computer is needed for a PowerBook which does not have a mini D-Sub
15-pin connector.
•
Mirroring on a PowerBook
* When using the projector with a Macintosh PowerBook, output may not be set to 1024 x 768 unless “mirroring” is off on your PowerBook. Refer to owner’s manual supplied with your Macintosh computer for mirroring.
•
Folders or icons are hidden on the Macintosh screen
Folders or icons may not be seen on the screen. Should this happen, select [View] → [Arrange] from the Apple
menu and arrange icons.

*** What is HDCP/HDCP technology?
HDCP is an acronym for High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection. High bandwidth Digital Content
Protection (HDCP) is a system for preventing illegal copying of video data sent over a Digital Visual
Interface (DVI).
If you are unable to view material via the DVI input, this does not necessarily mean the VT695/VT595
projector is not functioning properly. With the implementation of HDCP, there may be cases in which
certain content is protected with HDCP and might not be displayed due to the decision/intention of the
HDCP community (Digital Content Protection, LLC).
