Precautions for use
Cautions when transporting
ffWhen transporting the projector, hold it securely by its bottom and avoid excessive vibration and impacts. Doing
so may damage the internal parts and result in malfunctions.
ffDo not transport the projector with the adjustable feet extended. Doing so may damage the adjustable feet.
Cautions when installing
rDo
r not set up the projector outdoors.
The projector is designed for indoor use only.
rDo
r not use under the following conditions.
ffPlaces where vibration and impacts occur such as in a car or vehicle: Doing so may damage the internal parts
and result in malfunctions.
ffLocation close to sea or where corrosive gas may occur: the projector may fall due to corrosion. Also, failure to
do so may shorten the life of the components and result in malfunction.
ffNear the exhaust of an air conditioner: Depending on the conditions of use, the screen may fluctuate in rare
cases due to the heated air from the air exhaust port or the hot or cooled air. Make sure that the exhaust
from the projector or other equipment, or the air from the air conditioner does not blow toward the front of the
projector.
ffPlaces with sharp temperature fluctuations such as near lights (studio lamps): Doing so may shorten the life of
the luminous lamp, or result in deformation of the outer case due to heat, which may cause malfunction. Make
sure to observe the operating temperature range of the projector.
ffNear high-voltage power lines or near motors: Doing so may interfere with the operation of the projector.
rBe
r sure to ask a specialized technician or your dealer when installing the product to a
ceiling.
This requires an optional ceiling mount bracket. Be sure to use the Projector Mount Bracket together with the
ceiling mount bracket for high ceilings or low ceilings.
Model No.:
① ET-PKL100H (for high ceilings), ET-PKV400B (Projector Mount Bracket)
② ET-PKL100S (for low ceilings), ET-PKV400B (Projector Mount Bracket)
rFocus
r
adjustment
The projection lens is thermally affected by the light from the light source, making the focus unstable in the period
just after switching on the power. It is recommended that the images are projected continuously for at least 30
minutes before the focus is adjusted.
rDo
r not install the projector at elevations of 2 700 m (8 858') or higher above sea level.
rDo
r not use the projector in a location that the ambient temperature exceed 40 °C
(104 °F).
Using the projector in a location that the altitude is too high or the ambient temperature is too high may shorten
the life of the components or result in malfunctions.
The upper limit of the operating temperature of the projector varies depending on the altitudes of the operating
environment.
When using it at altitudes below 1 200 m (3 937') above sea level: 0 °C (32 °F) ~ 40 °C (104 °F)
When using it at altitudes between 1 200 m (3 937') and 2 700 m (8 858') above sea level: 0 °C (32 °F) ~ 30 °C
(86 °F)
rDo
r not tilt the projector or place it on its side.
Do not tilt the projector body more than approximately ±30 degrees longitudinally or ±15 degrees laterally. Over
tilting may result in shortening the life of the components.

Cautions when setting the projectors
ffUse the adjustable feet only for the floor standing installation and for adjusting the angle. Using them for other
purposes may damage the projector.
ffWhen installing the projector with a method other than the floor installation using the adjustable feet or the
ceiling installation, use the four screw holes for ceiling mount (as shown in the figure) to fix the projector to the
mount. For details about the screw hole position for ceiling mount, refer to “Screw hole specifications for ceiling
mount” (x page 132).
(Screw diameter: M4, tapping depth inside the projector: 8 mm (5/16"), torque: 1.25 ± 0.2 N·m)
In such case, make sure that there is no clearance between the screw holes for ceiling mount on the projector
bottom and the setting surface by inserting spacers (metallic).

Chapter 1 Preparation - Precautions for use
ffDo not install the projector in a confined space.
When placing the projector in a confined space, a ventilation and/or air conditioning system is required. Exhaust
heat may accumulate when the ventilation is not enough, triggering the protection circuit of the projector.
ffPanasonic takes no responsibility for any damage to the product caused by an inappropriate choice of location
for installing the projector, even if the warranty period of the product has not expired.
Security
When using this product, take safety measures against the following incidents.
ffPersonal information being leaked via this product
ffUnauthorized operation of this product by a malicious third party
ffInterfering or stopping of this product by a malicious third party
Take sufficient security measures.
ffMake your password as difficult to guess as possible.
ffChange your password periodically. The password can be set in the [SECURITY] menu → [PASSWORD
CHANGE].
ffPanasonic Corporation or its affiliate company never inquires a password directly to a customer. Do not tell your

ffThe connecting network must be secured by firewall or others.
ffSet a password for web control function appropriately and restrict the users who can log in. The password for
the web control function can be set on the [Change password] page of the web control screen.
Early Warning Software
The projector supports “Early Warning Software”, which monitors the status of the display devices (projector or
flat panel display) and the peripheral devices inside an intranet, and notifies of abnormality of such equipment and
detects signs of possible abnormality. Also, maintenance can be performed in advance, because this software
gives notification of approximate time to replace consumables of the display, to clean each part of the display, and
to replace the components of the display.
Depending on the type of license, the number of displays that can be registered for monitoring varies. Limited
to the first 90 days after installation in a computer, it is possible to register up to 2048 units of displays free of
charge.

Chapter 1 Preparation - Precautions for use
Cautions on use
rTo
r get a good picture quality
In order to view a beautiful image in higher contrast, prepare an appropriate environment. Draw curtains or blinds
over windows and turn off any lights near the screen to prevent outside light or light from indoor lamps from
shining onto the screen.
rDo
r not touch the surface of the projector lens with your bare hands.
If the surface of the lens becomes dirty from fingerprints or anything else, this will be magnified and projected onto
the screen.
It is recommended to attach the supplied lens cap to the projection lens when you do not use the projector.
rLCD
r
panel
The LCD panel is precision-made. Note that in rare cases, pixels could be missing or always lit. Note that such
phenomena do not indicate malfunction.
If still images are projected for a long time, a residual image may remain on the LCD panel. In this case, project
the all white screen for over an hour. Note that the residual image may not disappear.
rOptical
r
parts
When the operating environment temperature is high or in environments where lots of dust, cigarette smoke, etc.
is present, the replacement cycle of the LCD panel, polarizing plate and other optical parts may be shorter even if
used for less than one year. Consult your dealer for details.
rLuminous
r
lamp
The light source of the projector is a high-pressure mercury lamp.
A high-pressure mercury lamp has the following characteristics.
ffThe luminance of the luminous lamp will decrease by duration of usage.
ffThe luminous lamp may burst with a loud sound or have its service life shortened because of shock, chipping, or
degradation due to cumulative runtime.
ffThe luminous lamp life varies greatly depending on individual differences and usage conditions. In particular,
continuous use for 12 hours or more and frequent off/on switching of the power greatly deteriorate the luminous
lamp and affect the luminous lamp life.
ffIn rare cases, the luminous lamp burst shortly after the projection.
ffThe risk of bursting increases when the luminous lamp is used beyond its replacement cycle. Make sure to
replace the lamp unit according to the proper replacement time (“When to replace the lamp unit”
(Æ page 114) and “How to replace the lamp unit” (Æ page 115))
ffIf the luminous lamp bursts, gas contained inside of the luminous lamp is released in a form of smoke.
ffIt is recommended to store replacement lamps for contingency.

Projection distance formulas
To use a projected image size not listed in this manual, check the projected image size SD (m) and use the
respective formula to calculate the value.
The unit of all the formulae is m. (Values obtained by the following calculation formulae contain a slight error.)
When calculating the value using image size designation (value in inches), multiply the value in inches by 0.0254
and substitute it into SD in the formula.

Chapter 2 Getting Started - Connecting
Connecting
Before connecting
ffBefore connecting, carefully read the operating instructions for the external device to be connected.
ffTurn off the power switch of the devices before connecting cables.
ffTake note of the following points before connecting the cables. Failure to do so may result in malfunctions.
ggWhen connecting a cable to the projector or an external device connected to the projector, touch any nearby
metallic objects to eliminate static electricity from your body before performing work.
ggDo not use unnecessarily long cables to connect to the projector or a device connected to the projector. The
longer the cable, the more it is susceptible to noise. Since using a cable while it is wound makes it act like an
antenna, it is more susceptible to noise.
ggWhen connecting cables, connect GND first, then insert the connecting terminal of the connecting device
straightly.
ffIf any connection cable is not supplied with the device, or if no optional cable is available for connection of the
device, prepare a necessary system connection cable to suit the device.
ffVideo signals from the video devices containing too much jitter may cause the images on the screen to
randomly wobble or wafture. In this case, a time base corrector (TBC) must be connected.
ffThe projector supports VIDEO signals, YCBCR/YPBPR signals, analog RGB signals (synchronous signals are TTL
level), and digital signal.
ffSome computer models or graphics cards are not compatible with the projector.
ffWhen using long cables to connect each equipment to the projector, there is a possibility that the image will not
be output correctly unless a cable compensator is used.
ffFor details on what video signals the projector supports, refer to “List of compatible signals”. (Æ page 126)

Attention
ff Always use one of the following when connecting a VCR.
- A VCR with built-in time base corrector (TBC).
- A time base corrector (TBC) between the projector and the VCR.
ff If nonstandard burst signals are connected, the image may be distorted. In such case, connect the time base corrector (TBC) between the
projector and the external devices.
Note
ff For an HDMI cable, use an HDMI High Speed cable that conforms to HDMI standards. If a cable that does not conform to HDMI standards
is used, images may be interrupted or may not be displayed.
ff The <HDMI 1 IN> terminal /<HDMI 2 IN> terminal can be connected to an external device with the DVI‑D terminal by using an HDMI/DVI
conversion cable. However, this may not function properly for some external devices, and image may not be projected.
ff This projector does not support the VIERA Link (HDMI).

ffThe projector enters standby mode when the power indicator <ON(G)/STANDBY(R)> lights or blinks in red.
4) Disconnect the plug of the power cord from the outlet.
Note
ff While the power indicator <ON(G)/STANDBY(R)> is lighting in orange, the luminous lamp is being cooled down and the projector cannot be

When the [PROJECTOR SETUP] menu → [ECO MANAGEMENT] → [STANDBY MODE] is set to [ECO], use of some functions is
restricted, but the power consumption during standby can be conserved.
Direct power off function
When the plug is disconnected from the outlet or the power is turned off by the circuit breaker in the ceiling mount
case while the projection is going on, the projector can respond with direct power off function. Therefore, it is also
safe in case a power outage occurs or the power cord is pulled out immediately after the projector is switched off.
Attention
ff Do not disconnect the power cord from the wall outlet or turn off the circuit breaker switch in about 1 minute after the lamp is lit. Doing so
may cause the lamp fail to light while you powering on the projector next time, or result in premature deterioration of the luminous lamp.
Note
ff If the [PROJECTOR SETUP] menu → [INITIAL STARTUP] is set to [LAST MEMORY] and the projector was turned off by using the circuit
breaker directly while projecting during the last time of use, the power indicator <ON(G)/STANDBY(R)> will light in green a while after the
circuit breaker is turned on, and then projection of the image will start.
ff If the projector is shut down with the direct power off function, it may take longer than usual to be ready for projection when the projector is
switched on the next time.

off before reaching to 5 000 hours, depending on the characteristics of the individual lamp, usage conditions, and
the installation environment. It is recommended that the Replacement Lamp Unit be prepared earlier.
If you continue to use the lamp unit after 5 000 hours has elapsed, the lamp turns off automatically after approximately
10 minutes, as it may cause malfunction of the projector.

Note
ff To predict the lamp unit replacement time, convert the runtime of [NORMAL], [ECO1] and [ECO2], which are set from the [PROJECTOR
SETUP] menu → [LAMP POWER], to the equivalent runtime of [[NORMAL] respectively. After checking the runtime of [NORMAL], [ECO1]
and [ECO2] displayed in the [PROJECTOR SETUP] menu → [STATUS] → [RUNTIME] → [LAMP (ET-LAV400)], calculate the converted
runtime by referring to “Formula for lamp unit replacement time (rough estimate)”. (Æ page 78)
ff The lamp unit replacement time of 5 000 hours is a rough guideline instead of a guarantee.

*1 Signal with l in the plug and play column is a signal described in the EDID (extended display identification data) of the
projector. The signal that does not have l in the plug and play column can also be input if it is described in the format
column. The resolution may not be selected in the computer even if the projector is compatible with the signal that does not
have l in the plug and play column.
*2 Pixel-Repetition signal (dot clock frequency 27.0 MHz) only
*3 When inputting appropriate analog signal, it can be displayed by making the setting suitable for the signal from the
[PICTURE] menu → [RGB-SYSTEM]. For digital signal, the [RGB-SYSTEM] setting is unnecessary.
*4 Only for PT-VW540
*5 VESA CVT-RB (Reduced Blanking)-compliant
*6 Samples the pixels in the image processing circuit and displays the image.
*7 Only for PT-VZ580
Note
ff A signal with a different resolution is converted to the number of display dots. The number of display dots is as follows.
gg PT-VZ580: 1 920 x 1 200
gg PT-VW540: 1 280 x 800
gg PT-VX610: 1 024 x 768
ff The “i” at the end of the resolution indicates an interlaced signal.
ff When interlaced signals are connected, flickering may occur on the projected image.
ff Even the above signals exist, some image signals recorded in special method may not be displayed.
