Setting up your projector
Setting up the screen
Install the screen perpendicularly to the projector. If the screen can not be installed in such a way, adjust the
projection angle of the projector. (See below.)
• Install the screen and projector so that the projector’s lens is placed at the same height and horizontal position of the screen center.
• Do not install the screen where it is exposed to direct sunlight or lighting. Light directly reflecting on the
screen makes the projected images whitish and hard to view.
Basic setup
Determine the distance from the screen to the projector according to the size of the images to be projected. (See
Page 11.)
W
A
B
A=B
• Do not place this projector on a carpet or blanket because the exhaust vent and the intake vent on the bottom
surface are blocked and the inside of the projector is heated, causing a breakdown or fire.
• Depending on the installation conditions, warm air that is emitted from the exhaust vents may flow into the
intake vent, causing the projector to display “Over Temperature” and then stop projecting images. In such a
case, attach the cushion that comes with the projector to the bottom surface of the projector as shown below.
Adjusting the projection angle
This projector is provided with three feet for adjusting the projection angle on the bottom surface.
Adjust the projection angle depending on the
position of the projector.
Adjustment of the projection angle
For the best projection, project images on a flat
screen installed at 90 degrees to the floor. If
necessary, tilt the projector using the two
adjustment feet on the bottom of the projector.
Screen
Adjustment feet
(rear)
1. Tilt up the project to the appropriate angle.
2. Press the foot adjustment buttons next to the
adjustment feet (rear), and the adjustment feet
will come out.
3. Release the buttons to lock the adjustment feet
(rear) to that position.
4. Rotate the adjustment feet (rear) for fine
adjustment.
After using the projector:
5. Put the adjustment feet (rear) back into the
projector by pressing the foot adjustment
buttons.
• If necessary, rotate the adjustment feet (front)
for fine adjustment.
EN-10
When projected images are distorted to a
trapezoid:
When the screen and the projector are not placed
perpendicularly to each other, projected images
become trapezoidal. If you cannot make the projector and the screen perpendicular to each other by
mechanical adjustments, adjust keystone. (See
Page 16.)
• When the keystone adjustment is applied, the
correct aspect ratio may not be obtained.
• When the keystone adjustment is applied, the
resolution lowers. In addition, vertical stripes
appear and straight lines bend in images with
complicated patterns. To prevent such symptoms,
keep the screen and the projector perpendicular
to each other as much as possible.
• Though the projected image may be distorted
momentarily when you change the setting value
of the keystone adjustment, such symptom is not
a malfunction.
• Though the projected image may be distorted
depending on the setting value of the keystone
adjustment and the type of the input signal, such
symptom is not a malfunction. In such a case,
adjust the setting value within the range where
the projected image is not distorted.
• The setting value displayed at the time of the
keystone adjustment may vary depending on the
type of the input signal.

•
•
For connection to the DVI-D terminal, use a commercially available DVI cable.
Select DVI as the input source.
Only RGB signals are supported. Component video signals are not supported.
HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection), developed by Intel Corporation, is a method to encrypt
digital video data for the purpose of copy protection.
• This projector uses stereo mini plug for its audio input.
• When DVI is selected as the input source, setting of COLOR, TINT, FINE SYNC., TRACKING and HOLD is
unavailable.
When you connect this projector and a DVI-Digital device (such as a DVD player) via the DVI
terminal, black color may appear light and pale, depending on the type of the connected device.
• This depends on the black level setting of the connected device. There are two kinds of methods to digitally
transfer image data, in which different black level settings are employed respectively. Therefore, the specifications of the signals output from DVD players differ, depending on the type of the digital data transfer method
they use.
• Some DVD players are provided with a function to switch the methods to output DVI-Digital signals. When
your DVD player is provided with such function, set it as follows.
NORMAL ➔ EXPAND or ENHANCED
• See the users guide of your DVD player for details.
• When your DVD player does not have such function, set BRIGHTNESS of this projector to -16.

Replacing the lamp
This projector is equipped with a lamp to project images. This lamp is a consumable. It may burn out or its
brightness may decrease during use. In such cases, replace the lamp with a new one as soon as possible. Be sure
to replace the lamp with a new lamp separately sold that is exclusive to this projector. Contact your dealer for
purchase of the lamp.
WARNING:
• Be careful not to drop the lamp fixing screws into the inside of the projector. Don’t put a metal piece or flammable object into the projector. Using the projector with any foreign object present inside may result in electric shock or fire. When you can’t remove the foreign object from the inside, contact your dealer for removal.
• Be sure to install the lamp securely. When the lamp isn’t installed properly, it won’t illuminate. Improper
installation may also result in fire.
• Don’t shake the removed lamp or don’t lift it above your face. You may be injured in your eye by flying or
falling glass fragments.
• Don’t replace the lamp immediately after use because the lamp cover is very hot. You may get burned. Turn off
the power using the POWER button. After the lamp goes out, wait about two minutes until the intake and
exhaust fans for cooling the lamp stop rotating. Then unplug the power cord, and wait at least one hour to
allow the lamp to cool down enough to the touch.
Interval of lamp replacement
The recommended interval of lamp replacement is about 2000 hours*1 *2 of consecutive use. Such interval differs
depending on the operating environment and may be shorter than 2000 hours*1 *2. Decrease in luminescence
and/or color brightness indicates that the lamp needs to be replaced. When the lamp operation time exceeds 1500
hours*1, the indicator will blink alternately between green and red (while the lamp is lit; when the lamp is not
lit, the indicator will be lit red only) and the lamp replacement message will appear on the screen for one minute
everytime the lamp is turned on. When the lamp has been used for about 1900 hours*1, the replacement message
(LAMP EXCHANGE) will appear on the screen for one minute every 10 hours*1 thereafter.
When the lamp operation time exceeds 2000 hours*1 *2, the projector automatically shuts off and
can’t be used until the lamp is replaced and the lamp operation time is reset.
*1 When LAMP MODE of the INSTALLATION menu is set to STANDARD. When it is set to LOW, this duration
will be extended.
*2 When LAMP MODE is set to LOW, this duration will be extended up to 4000 hours.
Caution:
• Don’t remove the lamp for any purpose other than replacement. Unnecessary removal of the lamp may result
in a breakdown.
• This projector uses a high-pressure mercury lamp as the light source. The high-pressure mercury lamp may
explode or fail to illuminate permanently because of an impact, scratch, or deterioration through use. The
period of time until explosion or permanent failure to illuminate varies considerably from lamp to lamp,
depending on operation conditions. Therefore, the lamp may explode soon after the start of use.
• The possibility of explosion of the lamp increases if you use it beyond its replacement period. When the instruction of lamp replacement appears, replace it with a new one immediately even if the lamp is still lighting
normally.
• When the high-pressure mercury lamp explodes, glass fragments will scatter inside or outside the lamp box
and the gas charged inside the lamp will diffuse inside or outside the projector. The gas inside the lamp
contains mercury. Be careful not to breathe it or avoid it from entering your eye or mouth. If you should
breathe it or if it should enter your eye or mouth, see a doctor immediately.
• In the event that the high-pressure mercury lamp has exploded, glass fragments may have been scattered
inside the projector. Ask your dealer to replace the lamp and to inspect the inside of the projector. When you
clean or replace the lamp by yourself, be sure to hold the handle of the lamp. You may get injured by glass
fragments.
• Don’t replace the lamp with the projector installed on the ceiling. Glass fragments may fall from the projector,
entering your eye or mouth causing injury.
• When placing the projector upside down to replace the lamp or conduct maintenance, ensure that the projector is securely placed before working with it.
