Precautions on handling
Cautions when moving the projector
Be sure to attach the lens cover before moving the projector.
The projection lens is extremely susceptible to vibration and shocks. Be
careful not to subject it to excessive vibration and shock when moving the
projector.
Cautions regarding setting-up
Observe the following at all times when setting up the projector.
Avoid setting up in places which are subject to vibration or shocks.
If the projector is set up in locations with strong vibration, such as near a
motor, or if it is installed inside a vehicle or on board a ship, the projector
may be subjected to vibration or shocks which can damage the internal parts
and cause malfunctions or accidents. Accordingly, set up the projector in a
place which is free from such vibrations and shocks.
Do not set up the projector near high-voltage power lines or near
motors.
The projector may be subject to electromagnetic interference if it is set up
near high-voltage power lines or motors.
If installing the projector to the ceiling, ask a qualified technician to
carry out all installation work.
If the projector is to be suspended from the ceiling, you will need to purchase
the separate installation kit (Model No.: ET-PK780). Furthermore, all
installation work should only be carried out by a qualified technician.
If using this projector at high elevations (above 1 400 m), set the FAN
CONTROL to HIGH. (Refer to page 47.)
Failure to observe this may result in malfunctions.
Notes on use
In order to get the best picture quality
If outside light or light from indoor lamps is shining onto the screen, the
images projected will not have good contrast. Draw curtains or blinds over
any windows and turn off any fluorescent lights near the screen to prevent
reflection.
Do not touch the surfaces of the 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. Moreover, when not using
the projector, retract the lens and then cover it with the accessory lens cover.
12
Before carrying out cleaning and maintenance, be
sure to disconnect the power cord plug from the
wall outlet.
Wipe the cabinet with a soft, dry cloth.
If the cabinet is particularly dirty, soak the cloth in water with a small amount
of neutral detergent in it, squeeze the cloth very well, and then wipe the
cabinet. After cleaning, wipe the cabinet dry with a dry cloth.
If using a chemically-treated cloth, read the instructions supplied with
the cloth before use.
Do not wipe the lens with a cloth that is dusty or which produces lint.
If any dust or lint gets onto the lens, such dust or lint will be magnified and
projected onto the screen. Use a blower to clean any dust and lint from the
lens surface, or use a soft cloth to wipe off any dust or lint.
13
Preparation
About the screen
If the screen you are using is dirty, damaged or discolored, attractive
projections cannot be obtained. Do not apply any volatile substances to the
screen, and do not let it become dirty or damaged.
About the lamp
The lamp may need to be replaced earlier due to variables such as a
particular lamp’s characteristics, usage conditions and the installation
environment, especially when it is subjected to a continuous use for more
than 10 hours.
About the SD memory card (PT-L780NTU only)
Static electricity from the human body can damage the SD memory card. To
prevent this, you should touch a nearby metallic object such as an aluminium
sash or a door knob to dissipate the static charge from your body.
About the card slot (PT-L780NTU only)
Make sure that there are no foreign objects inside the slot when inserting the
SD memory card or an optional wireless card. Failure to observe it may
damage the card and the slot.

pressed.
%Select the ID number you wish and then press the ENTER button.
When the projector ID coincides with the remote control unit
<If the MAIN POWER is ON>
The ID number will be displayed in white on the screen.
If the projector ID and ID for the remote control unit are not the same, the
projector ID is displayed in green.
<If the projector is in standby mode>
The Power indicator on the projector will flash for 5 seconds.
If the projector ID and ID for the remote control unit are not the same, the
Power indicator will stay illuminated red.
NOTE:
B The projector ID number in the remote control unit is set to “ALL” by
default. It is therefore not necessary to set a projector ID number when
only one projector is used.
B The projector can be turned ON/OFF from the remote control unit only if
the projector ID is set in the remote control unit. For more details on
projector ID setting, see page 48.

Connections
Notes on connections
B Read the instruction manual for each system component carefully before
connecting it.
B Turn off the power supply for all components before making any
connections.
B If the cables necessary for connecting a component to the system are not
included with the component or available as an option, you may need to
fashion a cable to suit the component concerned.
B If there is a lot of jitter in the video signal which is input from the video
source, the picture on the screen may flicker. In such cases, it will be
necessary to connect a TBC (time base corrector).
B The projector has built-in speakers. However, you will need to connect a
separate audio system to the AUDIO OUT jack if your needs specify high
sound volumes. No sound will come out of the projector’s built-in speakers
while the AUDIO OUT jack is being used.
B It may not be possible to connect some types of computer. Refer to the list
of compatible signals on page 63.

If the screen size (diagonal) is SD (m), then the following formula is used to
calculate the projection distance for the wide lens position (LW) and the
projection distance for the telephoto lens position (LT).
LW=0.0407xSD/0.0254-0.080
LT=0.0538xSD/0.0254-0.0774
For 16:9 aspect ratios, the following formula can be used to calculate the
projection distance.
LW=0.0443xSD/0.0254-0.080
LT=0.0586xSD/0.0254-0.0774
R
NOTE:
B The dimensions in the table above and the values obtained from the
above formulas may contain slight errors.
B If you use the projection distance for the 16:9 screen, the
4:3 projection image overflows the screen at the top and
bottom.
B If you set up the projector vertically, it may cause to
damage the projector.
B It is recommended that you set up the projector in
a place that is tilted at less than ±35°. Setting up
the projector in places that are tilted at more than
±35° may cause malfunctions.
Make sure that enough space is kept for the air
outlet port.

quality will deteriorate, and the harder it
will become to achieve a good level of
focus. To obtain the best picture quality,
set up the projector and screen in such
a way that the amount of keystone
correction required is as minimal as
possible.
B The picture size will also change
when correction of keystone
distortion is carried out.
B The range of keystone correction
varies depending on the type of
signal being input. If you make an
adjustment that is outside the
allowable range, the setting will not
be changed. In addition, if the input
signal changes after keystone
correction has been carried out, the
correction setting may be cancelled.
This indicates that the current
correction setting exceeds the
allowable range for the new input
signal.
B If you correct both vertical and
horizontal keystone distortion at the
same time, the allowable range of
keystone correction becomes
smaller. If you make an adjustment
that is outside the allowable range,
the setting will not be changed.
NOTE:
B S1 video signals
S1 video signals are a type of video
signal with an aspect ratio of 16:9
which include a detector signal. This
detector signal is output by some
sources such as wide-vision video
decks. If the AUTO setting above is
selected, this projector will recognise
the detector signal and automatically
switch the aspect ratio to 16:9 in
order to project the picture.
B This projector is equipped with an
aspect ratio selection function.
However, if a mode which does
not match the aspect ratio of the
input signal is selected, it may
affect the quality of viewing of the
original picture. Keep this in mind
when selecting the aspect ratio.
B If using this projector in places
such as cafes or hotels with the
aim of displaying programmes for
viewing for a commercial purpose
or for public presentation, note
that if the aspect ratio (16:9)
selection function is used to
change the aspect ratio of the
screen picture, you may be
infringing the rights of the original
copyright owner for that
programme under copyright
protection laws.
B If a normal (4:3) picture which
was not originally intended for
wide-screen viewing is projected
onto a wide screen, distortion
may occur around the edges of
the picture so that part of the
picture is no longer visible. Such
programmes should be viewed in
4:3 mode to give proper
consideration to the aims and
intentions of the original
programme’s creator.
44
BWhen a VGA60 or 525p RGB
signal is being input, select the
signal in accordance with the
input signal.
RESIZING
This should normally be set to “ON”.
(This setting is only for signals
which have lower resolutions than
the LCD panels. Refer to page 63
for details.)
ON
The pixel resolution of the input
signal is converted to the same
resolution as the LCD panels before
being projected. For signals with
lower resolutions, gaps in the pixels
are automatically interpolated into
the picture before it is projected.
This may sometimes cause
problems with the quality of the
picture.
OFF
The picture signal is projected at its
original resolution, with no pixel
conversion. The projected picture
will be smaller than normal, so
adjust the zoom setting or move the
projector forwards or backwards to
adjust the picture size if necessary.
If set to “OFF”, some features, such
as D.ZOOM (digital zoom) or
keystone distortion correction will
not function.
AUTO SETUP
This item functions in the same way
as the AUTO SETUP button on the
remote control unit. (page 16)

Hence ID number need not be set
when only one projector is used.
If the projectors are given ID
numbers, their remote control units
must be assigned the same ID
numbers, respectively.
If the UNIT ID s of two or more
projectors are set to “ALL”, the user
will not be able to control them
separately.
The projector can be turned ON/OFF
from the remote control unit only if the
projector ID is set in the remote
control unit. For the details of
projector ID setting, see page 23.
AUTO POWER OFF
If any signal is not input into the
projector during the time that you set
up, the projector will return to standby
mode. The auto power off time can
be set to, from 15 minutes to 60
minutes, by 5 minutes. If you don't
use this feature, set it to “OFF”.
This feature will not function under
the following situation.
1) When the NETWORK or SD
CARD is selected (PT-L780NTU
only).
2) When using the freeze function.
3) When writing the data in the SD
memory card (PT-L780NTU
only).
NOTE:
While projector is connected to a
personal computer by means of a
wireless or wired network using an
optional wireless card or projector
LAN card with the WEB STANDBY
set to “ON”, the cooling fan operates
and the power indicator on the
projector flashes slowly in red.

Cleaning and replacing the air filter
If the air filter becomes clogged with dust, the internal temperature of the
projector will rise, the TEMP indicator will flash and the projector power will
turn off. The air filter should be cleaned every 100 hours of use,
depending on the location where the projector is being used.
Cleaning procedure
# Turn off the MAIN POWER
switch and disconnect the
power cord plug from the
mains socket.
Turn off the MAIN POWER switch
according to the procedure given
in “Turning off the power” on
page 31 before disconnecting the
plug from the mains socket.
$ Gently turn the projector
upside down.
NOTE:
B Place the projector on top of a
soft cloth so that it will not
become scratched.
% Remove the air filter.
Put your fingernails under the air
filter and pull the air filter out of
the projector.
Air filter
64
& Clean the air filter.
Use a vacuum cleaner to clean
off any accumulated dust.
NOTE:
B Be careful not to let the air filter
get sucked into the vacuum
cleaner.
' Install the air filter.
NOTE:
B Be sure to install the air filter
cover before using the projector.
If the projector is used without the
air filter cover installed, dust and
other foreign particles will be
drawn into the projector, and
malfunctions will result.
B If the dust cannot be removed by
cleaning, it is time to replace the
air filter. Please consult your
dealer. Furthermore, if the lamp
unit is being replaced, replace the
air filter at this time also.
Replacing the lamp unit
When replacing the lamp, allow it
to cool for at least one hour
before handling it.
B The lamp cover gets very hot,
and contact with it can cause
burns.
Notes on replacing the
lamp unit
B The light generating lamp is
made of glass, so dropping it or
allowing it to hit hard objects may
cause it to burst. Be careful when
handling the lamp.
B After having removed the old
lamp, carelessly discarding it can
cause the lamp to burst. Dispose
of the lamp with the same care
that would be taken with a
fluorescent light.
B A Phillips screwdriver is
necessary for removing the lamp
unit. Make sure that your hands
are not slippery when using the
screwdriver.
NOTE:
B The projector is not supplied with
a replacement lamp unit. Please
ask your dealer for details. Lamp
unit product no.: ET-LA780
CAUTION:
B Do not use any lamp unit other
than the one with the product
number indicated above.
Lamp unit replacement
period
The lamp is a consumable product.
Even when the full life of the bulb
has not been exhausted, the
brightness of the light will gradually
decline. Therefore periodic
replacement of the lamp is
necessary.
The intended lamp replacement
interval is 1 500 hours, but it is
possible that the lamp may need to
be replaced earlier due to variables
such as a particular lamp's
characteristics, usage conditions
and the installation environment.
Early preparation for lamp
replacement is encouraged.
A lamp that has exceeded 1 500
hours of use has a much greater
chance of exploding. In order to
prevent the lamp from exploding,
the lamp will be automatically shut
off when 1 500 hours of use have
been reached.
NOTE:
B The usage hours explained
above are for use when the HIGH
setting has been selected for
LAMP POWER in the OPTION
menu. If the LOW setting is
selected, the brightness of the
lamp will be less and life of the
lamp can be extended.
B While 1 500 hours is the intended
replacement interval, it is not a
period of time covered by
warranty.

Période de
remplacement du bloc
de lampe
La lampe est un produit qui doit être
remplacé. Même si la durée de vie
complète de l’ampoule n’est pas
encore épuisée, la luminosité de la
lampe diminuera progressivement. Il
faut donc remplacer périodiquement
la lampe.
L’intervalle de remplacement de la
lampe prévu est de 1 500 heures; il
est toutefois possible qu’il faille
remplacer la lampe avant ce délai en
raison d’éléments variables tels que
les caractéristiques particulières de
la lampe, les conditions d’utilisation
et l’environnement d’installation. Il
est recommandé de toujours avoir
un bloc de lampe de rechange prêt à
l’emploi. Une lampe qui a dépassé la
limite de 1 500 heures d’utilisation
risque beaucoup plus d’exploser.

Precautions on use of SD card
This SD card is a semiconductor memory with the size of 24mm x 32mm x 2.1mm, as
small as a postage stamp, and is expected to be a next-generation recording medium
that replaces minidisks (MDs), compact disks (CDs) and cassette tapes. The card
allows repetition of data reading, writing and deleting.
Instructions on handling
Abstain from the following:
• To disassemble or modify the card
• To give the card a strong impact, twisting, bending, dropping, treading, or water
wetting
• To rub the card with a sheet of cloth or plastics or to bring the card near to anything
that is likely to generate static electricity or electromagnetic field.
• To touch the metallic terminal of card with hand or metallic object, to affix stickers,
or to stain the card.
• To peel off the label that is affixed to the card.
• To affix other labels or stickers.
• To insert the card into a device that does not accept an SD card (e.g., device for
multimedia cards).
• To apply excessive force when operating the lid of the card port.
• To use cracked or deformed card.
• To use the card in a moist place such as bathroom or in a dusty place such as
warehouse.
Instruction on storage
Be sure to put the card in the case when it is taken out from the main body.
• Do not put the card in a vehicle or in a place exposed to direct sunlight where it
may become hot.
• Do not put the card in a place where corrosive gases may arise.
For protection of important data
• Do not turn off the power or do not remove the SD card during memory reading or
writing (when the SD card access lamp is blinking). Doing the above may destroy
the stored data.
• Do not forget to make backup of the data stored in the SD card. Note that user s
important data is subject to potential destruction although it is very rare to occur.
84
To create a backup copy of the data stored on the SD card
Double click and open the icon of SD card drive
in My Computer of your personal computer (on
the desktop if your computer is Macintosh) and
drag and drop the "DCIM" folder onto desktop
(while pressing the "Option" button, for Macintosh
machine). This operation can create copies of all
data within the "DCIM" folder into your personal
computer.
Write protection switch
• If the SD card is inserted into the personal
computer by means of the PC card adaptor
while the write-protection switch of SD card is
set to the "LOCK" position, a blue-screen
warning indication will appear when access is
made. If this occurs, press any button on the
keyboard of your PC to return the indication to
the original one. Before using an SD card in
your personal computer, ensure that the writeprotection switch is not set to the "LOCK"
position.

Precautions on use of projector LAN card
Use an optional projector LAN card (ET-CDLAN1)
Turn off the power to the main unit before inserting
and removing the card.
When wiring the LAN cable, keep away from the
exhaust port on the rear of the main body.
The heat from the exhaust port may damage the cable.
Radio frequencies used by the wireless
card
The optional wireless card (ET-CDWL1 series) uses 2.4 GHz band wave.
Although radio station license is not required to use the wireless card, the
following points must be well understood:
Do not use the cards near other sources of radio
emissions.
The following devices may use the same frequencies that are used by the
wireless card. If the wireless card is used near such devices, radio
interference may prevent successful communication, or it may result in
slower communication speeds being achieved.
• Industrial, scientific, medical equipment, etc
• Electric stoves, etc
• Built-in radio devices used for identifying moving equipment in industrial
production lines
• Certain low-power radio devices
Keep the wireless card as far away as possible
from devices such as mobile telephones, TVs and
radios when using such devices
Devices such as mobile telephones, TVs and radios use different
frequencies from the wireless card, so that there will be no effect on either
wireless card communication or on reception or transmission for such
devices. However, radio emissions from the wireless card may cause video
or audio interference.
Radio emissions from the wireless card will not
travel through steel framework, metal sheets or
concrete.
The radio emissions from the wireless card will pass through materials such
as wood and glass (except for glass which is reinforced with metal fibres), so
that communication is possible because the signals can pass through walls
and floors which are made from these materials. However, the radio
emission cannot pass through materials such as steel frames, metal sheets
and concrete, so that communication is not possible because the signals
cannot pass through walls and floors which are made from such materials.
86
Available channels
The channels (frequency bandwidth) that are available for the wireless card to use

Setting how to convert images when saving
You can specify how to convert images when saving images
onto the SD card or into other folders on the "Setup screen"
displayed by choosing "Setup" from the "Setup" menu or on
the "JPEG quality" adjustment slide bar on the main screen.
134
JPEG conversion format
If you select this check box with " ", the file and directory names will be converted
into DCF format upon saving. If the " " mark is not given, files will be saved in the
name shown under each image on the thumbnail screen.
For details of DCF standard, refer to "DCF standard" on page 136.
Note:
• When a file is saved onto the SD card, it is forcefully converted into DCF format.
"Create a thumbnail" check box
If you select this check box with " ", a reduced image
(i.e., a thumbnail) will be created in JPEG format and
embedded into the image file upon saving.
Note:
• When a file is saved onto the SD card, a thumbnail is
forcefully created.
"JPEG quality" adjustment slide bar
You can adjust the quality (compression ratio) of a
JPEG image to be saved using "Save to the SD card" or
"Save to the other folder" button.
If you choose higher quality, a file becomes larger; if you
choose lower quality, a file becomes smaller. (The size
of the lowest quality file is about one fifth of that of the
highest quality.)
Note:
• The JPEG format is suitable for natural pictures such as photographs. For
presentations created with PowerPoint and illustrations made with graphic
software, there may be significant loss of picture quality even if you choose a
higher quality.

Explanation of terms
LAN
Abbreviation of Local Area Network, including wired LAN and wireless LAN; a
relatively small-range network developed in a company or in a building.
TCP/IP
Abbreviation for Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol. The standard
protocol for the Internet.
A protocol is a set of specifications and agreements which allow two computers to
communicate with each other.
IP Address
An Internet Protocol (IP) is a protocol used for the transmission of data, and the IP
address is the address of the destination where the data is being sent to. Identical IP
addresses cannot be used for two different devices within the one LAN.
Subnet Mask
Limits the range of IP addresses that can be assigned to a computer when using a
TCP/IP connection, in order to allow a network to be divided into several subsections. The parameters which divide the sub-network in this way are called the
subnet mask.
Gateway
A junction point where different types of networks are connected to each other.
It is used to refer to the hardware and software which is used when connecting a
particular network to another network which has been set up under different network
specifications. It makes adjustments for differences in the protocols used by the two
networks and makes it possible to connect to other networks.
DHCP
Abbreviation for Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol. A function which automatically
assigns IP addresses to each computer that is connected to a network. If a device
which functions as a DHCP server is located within a LAN, this device automatically
assigns IP addresses to computers which are connected to the LAN. Not available
with this product.
Ad Hoc Mode
A mode for direct communication between the projector and a computer with an
optional wireless card.
Infrastructure Mode
A mode for communication via an access point which is connected to a wired LAN.
A computer without an optional wireless card can still be used to send images to the
projector via an access point.
PEER-TO-PEER Mode
A mode that allows direct communication between the projector and a wireless LANincorporated personal computer produced by some manufacturers or a wireless LAN
card. If communication is not available in ad hoc mode, try to use this peer-to-peer
mode.
139
Access Point
A point of connection between a wired LAN and a wireless LAN.
Channel
If several access points which use the same frequency band are located near each
other, radio transmission interference between these access point can occur when
they are being used, and this can in turn result in drops in transmission speeds. In
order to reduce this problem when using wireless LANs, the frequency band can be
divided into 11 channels for communication purposes. (The number of channels
varies depending on the country.) However, because interference between adjacent
channels can occur, the channels available for use are normally spaced 2 or 3
channels apart from each other.
SSID
Abbreviation for Service Set ID. Wireless LANs that utilise access points require the
setting of SSID identification codes in order to distinguish between devices which are
a part of the LAN and devices which are not.
Wireless LAN cards of some manufacturers use the name of “ESSID” or “Network
name” instead of SSID.
WEP
Abbreviation for Wired Equivalent Privacy. A method of encrypting transmitted data.
An encryption key is generated and is given only to the person who will be using the
transmitted data, in order to prevent third parties from decoding the transmitted data.
Not available with this product.
JPEG
Abbreviation for Joint Photographic Experts Group. JPEG is the name of an
international organisation which was jointly established by the ISO and the ITU-TS
(formerly the CCIT), but the term is normally used to refer to the specifications for the
still picture compression algorithm which was formulated by the JPEG. This algorithm
allows still images such as photographs, single frames of moving images and
scanned images to be compressed to up to 1/100th of their original sizes. However,
images which are compressed in this way cannot be fully restored to their original
quality (some deterioration in quality occurs), so that compression rates of 1/5 to 1/30
are normally used. Because of differences in color separation, two format sub-types
are used: RGB (red, green and blue) and CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, black).
The projector and the Image Creator 1.0 software do not support the CMYK sub-type
of JPEG file.
BMP
Abbreviation for BitMaP. This is the standard image format for the bitmapped files
(image files consisting of a collection of dots) which are handled by Windows.
Color levels of monochrome, 16 colors, 256 colors and 16.7 million colors are
supported.
PNG
Abbreviation for Portable Network Graphics.
A high compression rate file format that provides restorable compression for line
raster images.
Because it uses restorable compression, it does not result in any loss of image
resolution unlike JPEG.
140
RLE
Abbreviation for Run Length Encoding. It can be used to achieve high rates of
compression for image files which contain large areas of a single color. RLE can be
used with monochrome, 16-color and 256-color BMP image files. (Image Creator 1.0
does not support files compressed using RLE.)
TIFF
Abbreviation for Tagged-Image File Format. This type of file is used to exchange
documents between computers. Color levels of monochrome, 256 colors and 16.7
million colors are supported. TIFF files in 16.7 million color format can include
transparent color.
LZW
Abbreviation for Lempel-Ziv-Welch. LZW is a compression method used for TIFF
files, and is named thus because it was developed by three people named Lempel,
Ziv and Welch. It compresses the files by converting patterns within the images into
short codes. There is no deterioration in image quality resulting from compression,
but high rates of compression which are comparable to JPEG files cannot be
expected to be obtained. (Image Creator 1.0 does not support files compressed using
LZW.)
DCF
Abbreviation for Design rule for Camera File system. DCF is a standard which was
established by the Japan Electronic Industry Development Association (JEIDA) with
the aim of realising a common image file format, directory name format and file name
format for the images used with digital still cameras. It is based on recommendations
such as Exif Version 2.1.
Exif 2.1
Abbreviation for Exchangeable Image File Format. This is an image file format which
was established by the Japan Electronic Industry Development Association (JEIDA).
It defines the common information format and range of application for images used
with digital still cameras, centring around TIFF and JPEG-format images. Version 2.1
is the latest version of the Exif standard.
PowerPoint
Application software for creating presentations which is included as part of Microsoft
Office. 95, 97, 2000 and 2002 versions are available, but the Image Creator 1.0
software which is bundled with the projector is only compatible with the 97, 2000 and
2002 versions.
