Precautions for Use

Cautions on use

J z z z

In order to get the picture quality

Draw curtains or blinds over windows and turn off any lights near the screen to prevent outside light or light from indoor lamps from shining onto the screen.

Depending on where the projector is used, heated air from an exhaust port or warm or cold air from an air conditioner can cause a shimmering effect on screen.

Avoid use in locations where exhaust or streams of air from projector, other devices and air conditioners flow between the projector and the screen.

The lens of projector is affected by the heat from the luminous source. Because of this, the focusing may not be stable right after the power is turned on. Focusing is stabled after projecting image for 30 minutes and longer.

J

Do not touch the surface of the projector lens with your bare hand.

If the surface of the lens becomes dirty from fingerprints or anything else, this will be magnified and projected onto the screen.

J

LCD Panel

The display unit of this projector comprises three LCD panels. Although an LCD panel is a product of highprecision technology, some of the pixels on the projected image may be missing or constantly lit. Please note that this is not a malfunction.

Displaying a still image for a longer time may result in an after-image on the LCD panels. If this happens, display the all white screen in the test pattern for an hour or more.

J

Optical components

Operating the projector in an environment with high temperature or heavy exposure to dust or tobacco smoke will reduce the service life of the optical components, such as the LCD panel and polarizing plate, and may necessitate their replacement within less than one year of use. For details, consult your dealer.

J

Lamp

The luminous source of the projector is a mercury lamp with high internal pressure.

A high pressure mercury lamp has following characteristics.

z z z z z z z z

The brightness of the lamp will decrease by duration of usage.

The lamp may burst with sound or shorten life by shock or chipping.

The life of the lamp varies greatly depending on individual specificities and usage conditions. In particular, continuous use over 12 hours and frequent on/off switching of the power greatly deteriorate the lamp and affect the lamp life.

In rare cases, the lamp burst shortly after the projection.

The risk of bursting increases when the lamp is used beyond its replacement cycle. Make sure to replace the lamp unit consistently. (“When to replace the lamp unit” (

Æ

page 64))

If the lamp bursts, gas contained inside of the lamp is released in a form of smoke.

It is recommended to store replacement lamps for contingency.

It is recommended to have authorized engineer or your dealer replace the lamp unit.

Note

The remote control can be used within a distance of about 5 m (16.4 ft) if pointed directly at the remote control signal receiver. The remote control can control at angles of up to ± 30 ° vertically and ± 30 ° horizontally, but the effective control range may be reduced.

If there are any obstacles between the remote control and the remote control signal receiver, the remote control may not operate correctly.

You can operate the projector by reflecting the remote control signal on the screen. The operating range may differ due to the loss of light caused by the properties of the screen.

When the remote control signal receiver is lit with a fluorescent light or other strong light source, the projector may become inoperative. Set the projector as far from the luminous source as possible.

Press the <ON/STAND-BY> button on the top control or on the remote control, and Power off? appears on the screen.

Press the <ON/STAND-BY> button again to turn off the projector. The <POWER> indicator starts to blink red, and the cooling fans keep running.

At this time, you can unplug the AC power cord even if the fans are still running.

When the projector has cooled down enough, the <POWER> indicator stops blinking and you can turn on the projecto r.

z z z

Note

Do not put the projector in a case before the projector is cooled enough.

While the <POWER> indicator is blinking, the lamp is being cooled down and the projector cannot be turned on. Wait until the <POWER> indicator stops blinking to turn on the projector again

The projector can be turned on after the <POWER> indicator turns red. The waiting time to restart will be shortened when the normal power-off processing for fan cooling is completed, compared with the time the AC power cord is immediately unplugged after the power-off.

J

Direct Power Off function

Even if you turn on the <ON/STAND-BY> during projection or just after the lamp turns off, the cooling fan will continue to rotate using internally stored power. In cases where the <ON/STAND-BY> switch is not easily accessible, such as during ceiling mount, you can safely turn off the power by using the power breaker switch. This function also works if a power outage occurs or if the power cable is accidentally disconnected from the outlet right after turning the power off.

z z

Note

When using the Direct power Off function, you can not restart the projector immediately after the power is disconnected. The lamp remains high temperature and needs to be cooled, so it sometimes takes longer time than usual for the lamp to light up again.

While the cooling fan is operating, do not place the projector inside a box or bag.

Power off? disappears after 4 seconds.
