Installation Precautions
ENGLISH
• Place the projector in a wellventilated environment.
-- To prevent internal overheating,
install the projector in a wellventilated 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.
-- Leave an adequate open area
(30 cm or more) around the
projector.
• Do not place the projector in a hot,
cool, or humid environment.
• Do not place the projector in a place
where it will easily attract dust.
-- This may result in fire.
• Never open any cover on the
projector. There is a high risk of
electric shock.

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.
• To install to the ceiling, attach the
ceiling-type bracket to the projector
with M4 x 8 mm screws.
• Do not overtighten the screws. It
may damage the case, causing the
projector to fall and cause a serious
injury. (Recommended Torque: 5~8

• Use standard LAN cable (connect to Cat5 or higher with RJ45 connector, 10
Base-T, or 100 Base TX LAN port).
• Resetting the modem may fix some network connection problems. Turn the
power OFF, disconnect and reconnect it, and then turn the power on to solve
the problem.
• LG Electronics is not responsible for any network connection problems or any
faults, malfunctions, or errors caused by network connection.
• The network connection may not work properly because of network settings or
the Internet service provider.
• DSL service must use a DSL modem; and cable service must use a cable modem.
Since only a limited number of network connections may be available, projector
network setting may not be used depending on the contract with Internet
service provider. (If the contract does not allow more than one device per line,
only the already-connected PC may be used.)
• A wireless network can experience interference from other devices that use
the 2.4 GHz frequency (wireless phone, Bluetooth device, or microwave oven).
Although interference can also happen when using the 5 GHz frequency, it is
less likely to occur.
• The wireless environment can make wireless network service run slowly.
• Failure to turn off all local home networks may cause excessive traffic on some
devices.
• The access point device must support wireless connections and wireless
connection feature must be enabled on the device to have AP (access point)
connection. Contact the service provider for availability of wireless connections
on the access point.
• Check SSID and security settings of the AP. Refer to the appropriate
documentation for SSID and security settings of the AP.
• Invalid settings of network devices (wired/wireless line sharer, hub) can cause
the projector to operate slowly or not operate properly. Install the devices
correctly according to the appropriate manual and network.
• The connection method may differ depending on the AP manufacturer.
