Installation Precautions
• Place the projector in a wellventilated environment.
--To prevent internal
overheating, install the
projector in a well-ventilated
place.
Do not place anything near
the projector. That may block
its air vents. If the air vents
are blocked, the internal
temperature of the projector
will increase.
--Do not place the projector
on a carpet or rug. If the
projector's inlet vent is on
the bottom, be careful not to
block the vent and always
use the projector on a solid,
level surface.
--Be sure to prevent foreign
objects such as paper debris
from entering the projector.
17
--Leave an adequate open
area (30 cm or more) around
the projector.
• Do not install the projector in a
hot or humid environment.
--Only install the projector
in a place of moderate
temperature and low
humidity.
• Do not install the projector in a
place where it can attract dust.
--There is a risk of fire.
• Never open any cover on the
projector. There is a high risk of
electric shock.
• This projector is manufactured
using high-precision technology.
You may, however, see tiny
black dots and/or bright colored
dots that continuously appear
on the projector screen.
This is a normal result of the
manufacturing process and
does not indicate a malfunction.
• The remote control may not
work in an environment where
a lamp equipped with electronic
ballasts or a three-wavelength
fluorescent lamp is installed.
Replace the lamp with an
international standard lamp
for the remote control to work
normally.
18 PREPARATION
Projection Distance per Screen Size
1 Place the projector on a sturdy, level surface, together with the
computer or audio/video source.
2 Place the projector an appropriate distance away from the screen.
The distance between the projector and the screen determines the
actual size of the image.
3 Position the projector so that the lens is at a right angle to the screen.
If the lens is not perpendicular to the screen, the projected image will
appear distorted. To correct the distortion, use the Keystone function.
(See page 28.)
4 Connect the power cords of the projector and the connected devices to
the wall outlet.

• Battery usage time may vary depending on broadcast type, operating
temperature, period of use, and user preferences.
• As the battery is consumable, its lifetime gradually decreases. When the
battery’s life is reduced by half, replace it with a new battery from an LG
Electronics customer center.
• Do not charge the battery using any equipment other than that supplied
with the product. This may damage the battery or cause a fire.
• Always use a battery that is approved and certified by LG Electronics,
Inc. Failure to do so may result in an explosion or fire.
• If the battery is leaking or giving off an odor, discontinue its use
immediately and contact LG Electronics Customer Support Center.
• The battery contains lithium-ion, so please handle with care. Failure to
do so may result in an explosion or fire.
