The tilt angle of the projector should not exceed 10 degrees, nor should the projector be installed in any way other
than the desktop and ceiling mount, otherwise lamp life could decrease dramatically.
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 (NP610/NP510/NP410/NP405/
NP310/NP305/NP510W/NP410W/NP610S/NP510WS) or 200-240V AC 50/60 Hz (NP610G/NP510G/NP410G/

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  buttons on your
projector cabinet or your remote control to correct the
orientation. (→ page 72)

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.

NOTE: Immediately after turning on the projector, screen flicker may occur. This is normal. Wait 3 to 5 minutes until the lamp lighting is stabilized.
NOTE: If you turn on the projector immediately after the lamp is turned off, the fans run without displaying an image for some time
and then the projector will display the image.
CAUTION:
The projector cannot be turned off for 60 seconds after the lamp is turned on and while the POWER indicator is blinking
green. Doing so could cause premature lamp failure.
When the [ECO MODE] is set to [ON], the LAMP indicator will light green.
If one of the following things happens, the projector will not turn on.
• If the internal temperature of the projector is too high, the projector detects abnormal high temperature. In this
condition the projector will not turn on to protect the internal system. If this happens, wait for the projector’s internal
components to cool down.
• When the lamp reaches its end of usable life, the projector will not turn on. If this happens, replace the lamp.
• If the lamp fails to light, and if the STATUS indicator flashes on and off in a cycle of six times, wait a full minute and
then turn on the power.
NOTE: Turning the Main Power Switch Off then Back On
Allow a minimum of 1 second between turning off the main power switch and turning it back on again.
The same will be applied when a power strip equipped with a switch and a breaker is used.
Failing to do so could result in no power to the projector. (There will be no stand-by LED)
Should this happen, unplug the power cable and plug it in again. Turn on the main power switch.

5 Checking Energy-Saving Effect [CARBON METER]
This feature will show energy-saving effect in terms of CO2 emission reduction (kg) when the projector’s [ECO MODE]
is set to [ON]. This feature is called as [CARBON METER].
There are two messages: [TOTAL CARBON SAVINGS] and [CARBON SAVINGS-SESSION]. The [TOTAL CARBON
SAVINGS] message shows the total amount of CO2 emission reduction from the time of shipment up to now. You can
check the information on [USAGE TIME] from [INFO.] of the menu. (→ page 78)
The [CARBON SAVINGS-SESSION] message shows the amount of CO2 emission reduction between the time of
changing to ECO MODE immediately after the time of power-on and the time of power-off. The [CARBON SAVINGSSESSION] message will be displayed in the [POWER OFF/ ARE YOU SURE?] message at the time of power-off.
TIP:
• The formula as shown below is used to calculate the amount of CO2 emission reduction.
Amount of CO2 emission reduction = Power consumption in OFF for ECO MODE – Power consumption in ON for ECO MODE x
CO2 conversion factor.*
* Calculation for amount of CO2 emission reduction is based on an OECD publication “CO2 Emissions from Fuel Combustion,
2008 Edition”.
• This formula will not apply to the power consumption which is not affected by whether [ECO MODE] is turned on or off.

8 Network Setting by Using an HTTP Browser (except NP405
and NP305)
Overview
Connecting the projector to a network allows the Alert Mail setting (→ page 50) and the projector control from a
computer via the network.
To perform the projector control from a web browser, you must have an exclusive application installed on your computer.
The IP address and subnet mask of the projector can be set on the Network Setting screen of the web browser by
using an HTTP server function. Please be sure to use “Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0” or a higher version for the web
browser. (This device uses “JavaScript” and “Cookies” and the browser should be set to accept these functions. The
setting method will vary depending on the version of browser. Please refer to the help files and the other information
provided in your software.)
Access is gained to the HTTP server function by starting the Web browser on the computer via the network connected
to the projector and enter the following URL.
• Network Setting
http://<the projector’s IP address>/index.html
• Alert Mail Setting
http://<the projector’s IP address>/lanconfig.html
TIP:
• The default IP address is “192.168.0.10”.
• The exclusive application can be downloaded from our website.
NOTE:
• If the PROJECTOR NETWORK SETTINGS screen does not appear in the web browser, press the Ctrl+F5 keys to refresh your web
browser (or clear the cache).
• The display’s or button’s response can be slowed down or operation may not be accepted depending the settings of your network.
Should this happen, consult your network administrator.
The projector may not respond if its buttons are repeatedly pressed in rapid intervals. Should this happen, wait a moment and
repeat. If you still can’t get any response, turn off and back on the projector.
Preparation Before Use
Connect the projector to a commercially available LAN cable before engaging in browser operations. (→ page 24)
Operation with a browser that uses a proxy server may not be possible depending on the type of proxy server and the
setting method. Although the type of proxy server will be a factor, it is possible that items that have actually been set
will not be displayed depending on the effectiveness of the cache, and the contents set from the browser may not be
reflected in operation. It is recommended that a proxy server not be used unless it is unavoidable.
Handling of the Address for Operation via a Browser
Regarding the actual address that is entered for the address or entered to the URL column when operation of the projector is via a browser, the host name can be used as it is when the host name corresponding to the IP address of the
projector has been registered to the domain name server by a network administrator, or the host name corresponding
to the IP address of the projector has been set in the “HOSTS” file of the computer being used.
Example 1:
Example 2:
When the host name of the projector has been set to “pj.nec.co.jp”, access is gained to the network
setting by specifying
http://pj.nec.co.jp/index.html
for the address or the entry column of the URL.
When the IP address of the projector is “192.168.73.1”, access is gained to the mail alert settings by
specifying
http://192.168.73.1/index.html
for the address or the entry column of the URL.

The projector may erroneously determine the aspect ratio depending on its signal. If this
occurs, select the appropriate aspect ratio from the following.
The image is displayed in 4:3 aspect ratio.
The image is displayed in 16:9 aspect ratio.
The image is displayed in 15:9 aspect ratio.
The image is displayed in 16:10 aspect ratio.
The image is stretched left and right.
Parts of the displayed image are cropped at the left and right edges and therefore not

6. Maintenance
2 Cleaning the Cabinet and the Lens
1. Turn off the projector before cleaning.
2. Clean the cabinet periodically with a damp cloth. If heavily soiled, use a mild detergent. Never use strong
detergents or solvents such as alcohol or thinner.
Vacuum the ventilation
inlet of the cabinet.
Note on Cleaning the Lens (NP610/NP510/NP410/NP405/NP310/NP305/NP510W/NP410W)
Use a blower or lens paper to clean the lens, and be careful not to scratch or mar the lens.
Note on Cleaning the Lens (NP610S/NP510WS)
The NP610S and NP510WS have a plastic lens. Use a commercially available plastic lens cleaner.
NOTE:
• Do not scratch or mar the lens surface as a plastic lens is easily scratched.
• Never use alcohol or glass lens cleaner as doing so will cause damage to the lens surface.
83
http://www.pureglare.com.au
6. Maintenance
 Replacing the Lamp
When the lamp reaches the end of its life, the LAMP indicator in the cabinet will blink red. Even though the lamp may
still be working, replace the lamp to maintain the optimal projector performance. After replacing the lamp, be sure to
clear the lamp hour meter. (→ page 80)
CAUTION
• DO NOT TOUCH THE LAMP immediately after it has been used. It will be extremely hot. Turn the projector off,
turn off the main power switch and then disconnect the power cable. Allow at least one hour for the lamp to cool
before handling.
• DO NOT REMOVE ANY SCREWS except one lamp cover screw and two lamp housing screws. You could receive
an electric shock.
• Do not break the glass on the lamp housing.
Keep finger prints off the glass surface on the lamp housing. Leaving finger prints on the glass surface might cause
an unwanted shadow and poor picture quality.
• The projector will turn off and go into standby mode when you continue to use the projector for another 100 hours
after the lamp has reached the end of its life. If this happens, be sure to replace the lamp. If you continue to use
the lamp after the lamp reaches the end of its 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 NEC
dealer for lamp replacement.

Over-Temperature Protection
If the temperature inside the projector rises too high, the over-temperature protector will automatically turn off the lamp
with the STATUS indicator blinking (2-cycle On and Off.)
Should this happen, do the following:
• Unplug the power cable after the cooling fans stop.
• Move the projector to a cooler location if the room where you are presenting is particularly too warm.
• Clean the ventilation holes if they are clogged with dust.
• Wait about 60 minutes until the inside of the projector becomes cool enough.

7. Appendix
Common Problems & Solutions (→ “Power/Status/Lamp Indicator” on page 87.)
Problem
Check These Items
Does not turn on
or shut down
• Check that the power cable is plugged in and that the power button on the projector cabinet or the remote
control is on. (→ pages 25, 26, 27)
• Ensure that the lamp cover is installed correctly. (→ page 86)
• Check to see if the projector has overheated. If there is insufficient ventilation around the projector or if the
room where you are presenting is particularly warm, move the projector to a cooler location.
• Check to see if you continue to use the projector for another 100 hours after the lamp has reached the end of
its life. If so, replace the lamp. After replacing the lamp, reset the lamp hours used. (→ page 80)
• The lamp may fail to light. Wait a full minute and then turn on the power again.
• Set [FAN MODE] to [HIGH ALTITUDE] when using the projector at altitudes approximately 5500 feet/1600
meters or higher. Using the projector at altitudes approximately 5500 feet/1600 meters or higher without setting
to [HIGH ALTITUDE] can cause the projector to overheat and the projector could shut down. If this happens,
wait a couple minutes and turn on the projector. (→ page 74)
If you turn on the projector immediately after the lamp is turned off, the fans run without displaying an image for some time and then the projector will display the image. Wait for a moment.
Will turn off
• Ensure that the [OFF TIMER] or [AUTO POWER OFF] is off. (→ page 76, 77)
No picture
• Use the COMPUTER1, the COMPUTER2, the VIDEO or the S-VIDEO button on the remote control to select
your source (Computer, Video or S-Video). (→ page 29) If there is still no picture, press the button again.
• Ensure your cables are connected properly.
• Use menus to adjust the brightness and contrast. (→ page 62)
• Remove the lens cap.
• Reset the settings or adjustments to factory preset levels using the [RESET] in the Menu. (→ page 80)
• Enter your registered keyword if the Security function is enabled. (→ page 43)
• 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.
• See also the next page.
Picture suddenly
becomes dark
• Check if the projector is in the Forced ECO mode because of too high ambient temperature. If this is the case,
lower the internal temperature of the projector by selecting [HIGH] for [FAN MODE]. (→ page 74)
Color tone or hue is
unusual
• Check if an appropriate color is selected in [WALL COLOR]. If so, select an appropriate option. (→ page 69)
• Adjust [HUE] in [PICTURE]. (→ page 63)
Image isn’t square to
the screen
• Reposition the projector to improve its angle to the screen. (→ page 30)
• Use the Keystone correction function to correct the trapezoid distortion. (→ page 34)
Picture is blurred
• Adjust the focus. (→ page 33)
• Reposition the projector to improve its angle to the screen. (→ page 30)
• Ensure that the distance between the projector and screen is within the adjustment range of the lens.
(→ page 15, 16)
• Condensation may form on the lens if the projector is cold, brought into a warm place and is then turned on.
Should this happen, let the projector stand until there is no condensation on the lens.
Flicker appears on
screen
• Set [FAN MODE] to other than [HIGH ALTITUDE] mode when using the projector at altitudes approximately 5500 feet/1600
meters or lower. Using the projector at altitudes less than approximately 5500 feet/1600 meters and setting to [HIGH
ALTITUDE] can cause the lamp to overcool, causing the image to flicker. Switch [FAN MODE] to [AUTO]. (→ page 74)
Image is scrolling
vertically, horizontally
or both
• Check the computer’s resolution and frequency. Make sure that the resolution you are trying to display is
supported by the projector. (→ page 97)
• Adjust the computer image manually with the Horizontal/Vertical in the [IMAGE OPTIONS]. (→ page 65)
Remote control does
not work
• Install new batteries.(→ page 10)
• Make sure there are no obstacles between you and the projector.
• Stand within 22 feet (7 m) of the projector. (→ page 10)
Indicator is lit or blinking
• See the POWER/STATUS/LAMP Indicator. (→ page 87)
Cross color in RGB
mode
• Press the AUTO ADJ. button on the projector cabinet or the remote control. (→ page 37)
• Adjust the computer image manually with [CLOCK]/[PHASE] in [IMAGE OPTIONS] in the menu. (→ page 64)
For more information contact your dealer.

7. Appendix
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 79 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.

*4 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 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).
