WARNING:

„

POWER

The wall outlet or the circuit breaker shall be installed near the equipment and shall be easily accessible when problems occur. If the following problems occur, cut off the power supply immediately.

Continued use of the projector in these conditions will result in fire or electric shock.

z If foreign objects or water get inside the projector, cut off the power supply.

z If the projector is dropped or the cabinet is broken, cut off the power supply.

z If you notice smoke, strange smells or noise coming from the projector, cut off the power supply.

Please contact an Authorized Service Center for repairs, and do not attempt to repair the projector yourself.

During a thunderstorm, do not touch the projector or the cable.

Electric shocks can result.

Do not do anything that might damage the power cord or the power plug.

If the power cord is used while damaged, electric shocks, short-circuits or fire will result.

z Do not damage the power cord, make any modifications to it, place it near any hot objects, bend it excessively, twist it, pull it, place heavy objects on top of it or wrap it into a bundle.

Ask an Authorized Service Center to carry out any repairs to the power cord that might be necessary.

Completely insert the power plug into the wall outlet and the power connector into the projector terminal.

If the plug is not inserted correctly, electric shocks or overheating will result.

z Do not use plugs which are damaged or wall outlets which are coming loose from the wall.

Do not use anything other than the provided power cord.

Failure to observe this will result in electric shocks or fire. Please note that if you do not use the provided power cord to ground the device on the side of the outlet, this may result in electric shocks.

Clean the power plug regularly to prevent it from becoming covered in dust.

Failure to observe this will cause a fire.

z If dust builds up on the power plug, the resulting humidity can damage the insulation.

z If not using the projector for an extended period of time, pull the power plug out from the wall outlet.

Pull the power plug out from the wall outlet and wipe it with a dry cloth regularly.

Do not handle the power plug and power connector with wet hands.

Failure to observe this will result in electric shocks.

Do not overload the wall outlet.

If the power supply is overloaded (ex., by using too many adapters), overheating may occur and fire will result.

„

ON USE/INSTALLATION

Do not place the projector on soft materials such as carpets or sponge mats.

Doing so will cause the projector to overheat, which can cause burns, fire or damage to the projector.

Do not set up the projector in humid or dusty places or in places where the projector may come into contact with oily smoke or steam.

Using the projector under such conditions will result in fire, electric shocks or components deterioration.

Components deterioration (such as ceiling mount brackets) may cause the projector which is mounted on the ceiling to fall down.

Do not install this projector in a place which is not strong enough to take the full weight of the projector or on top of a surface which is sloped or unstable.

Failure to observe this will cause projector to fall down or tip over the projector, and severe injury or damage could result.

Installation work (such as ceiling mount bracket) should only be carried out by a qualified technician.

If installation is not carried out and secured correctly it can cause injury or accidents, such as electric shocks.

z Be sure to use the wire provided with the projector mount bracket for ceiling mount as an extra safety measure to prevent the projector from falling down (Install in a different location to the ceiling mount bracket).

Do not install the projector in a location where people pass through.

People may bump into the projector or trip on the power cord, which may result in fire, electric shock, or injury.

Do not cover the intake/exhaust vents.

Doing so will cause the projector to overheat, which can cause fire or damage to the projector.

z Do not place the projector in narrow, badly ventilated places.

z Do not place the projector on cloth or papers, as these materials could be drawn into the intake vent.

z Provide at least 1 m (39-3/8") of space between any walls or objects and the exhaust vent, and at least 50 cm (19-11/16") of space between any walls or objects and the intake vent.

r

Security when using the wireless LAN product

(Only for PT-LW376, PT-LW336, PT-LB426, PT-LB386 and PT-LB356)

The advantage of a wireless LAN is that information can be exchanged between a computer or other such equipment and a wireless access point using radio waves, instead of using a LAN cable, as long as you are within range for radio transmissions.

On the other hand, because the radio wave can travel through an obstacle (such as a wall) and is accessible from anywhere within a given range, following problems may occur if security setting is insufficient.

f Transmitted data may be intercepted

A malicious third party may intentionally intercept radio waves and monitor the following transmitted data.

g Personal information such as your ID, password, credit card number g Content of an Email f Illegally accessed

A malicious third party may access your personal or corporate network without authorization and engage in the following types of behavior.

g Retrieve personal and/or secret information (information leak) g Spread false information by impersonating a particular person (spoofing) g Overwrite intercepted communications and issue false data (tampering) g Spread harmful software such as a computer virus and crash your data and/or system (system crash)

Since most wireless LAN adapters or access points are equipped with security features to take care of these problems, you can reduce the possibility of these problems occurring when using this product by making the appropriate security settings for the wireless LAN device.

Some wireless LAN devices may not be set for security immediately after purchase. To decrease the possibility of occurrence of security problems, be sure to make all security related settings according to the operation instructions supplied with each wireless LAN device before using a wireless LAN device.

Depending on the specifications of the wireless LAN, a malicious third party may be able to break security settings by special means.

Panasonic Connect Co., Ltd. asks customers to thoroughly understand the risk of using this product without making security settings, and recommends that the customers make security settings at their own discretion and responsibility.

r

Angle sensor

The range of installation posture detected by the projector’s built-in angle sensor is as follows.

In case of [AUTO], when the projector is placed with the top side upward within ±30° from the horizontal plane, it will switch to [FRONT/DESK] automatically; when the projector is placed with the top side downward within ±30° from the horizontal plane, it will switch to [FRONT/CEILING] automatically.

In the case of [AUTO], it will be detected as [FRONT/DESK] even when the projector tilts over ±30° with the top side upward or over ±30° with the top side downward. To use the projector that tilts over ±30° with the top side downward, set the [PROJECTOR SETUP] menu → [PROJECTION METHOD] to [FRONT/CEILING] or [REAR/

CEILING] instead of [AUTO].

However, do not use the projector when it exceeds ±30° with respect to the horizontal plane. Doing so may shorten the life of the parts.

Chapter 2 Getting Started - Connecting

Connecting

Before connecting

f Before connecting, carefully read the operating instructions for the external device to be connected.

f Turn off the power switch of the devices before connecting cables.

f Take note of the following points before connecting the cables. Failure to do so may result in malfunctions.

g When connecting a cable to a device connected to the projector or the projector itself, touch any nearby metallic objects to eliminate static electricity from your body before performing work.

g Do not use unnecessarily long cables to connect to a device connected to the projector or to the projector body. The longer the cable, the more it is susceptible to noise. Since using a cable while it is wound makes it act like an antenna, it is more susceptible to noise.

g When connecting cables, connect GND first, then insert the connecting terminal of the connecting device in a straight manner.

f If any connection cable is not supplied with the device, or if no optional cable is available for connection of the device, prepare a necessary system connection cable to suit the device.

f Video signals containing too much jitter may cause the images on the screen to randomly wobble or wafture. In this case, a time base corrector (TBC) must be connected.

f The projector accepts Video signals, Y/C signals and YC

Attention f Panasonic Connect Co., Ltd. takes no responsibility for any damage or malfunction of the product resulting from use of lamp units which are not manufactured by Panasonic Connect Co., Ltd. Use only specified lamp units.

Note f The model numbers of accessories and optional accessories are subject to change without prior notice.

When to replace the lamp unit

The lamp unit is a consumable component. Since its brightness gradually decreases over time, it is necessary to replace the lamp unit regularly.

Please refer to [PROJECTOR SETUP] menu → [STATUS] → [RUNTIME] → [LAMP] about the usage time of lamp

( x page 77).

The estimated duration before replacement is 20 000 hours, but the lamp may go off before the time above mentioned has elapsed depending on individual lamp characteristics, usage conditions, and the installation environment. It is recommended that the Replacement lamp unit be prepared earlier.

The time which is displayed in [LAMP] is a total time when the real usage time in [NORMAL], [ECO] or [QUIET] is converted to the runtime in [ECO]. Please note that they are not displayed individually.

The displayed time in [LAMP] = “Lamp runtime of [NORMAL]” × 2 + “Lamp runtime of [ECO]”

+ “Lamp runtime of [QUIET]” × 2

The real usage time when the displayed time in [LAMP] is 20 000 hours means,

124 - ENGLISH

Chapter 6 Maintenance - Maintenance/replacement

When [Lamp control] is constantly set to [NORMAL] without switching to other modes = 10 000 hours

When [Lamp control] is constantly set to [ECO] without switching to other modes = 20 000 hours

When [Lamp control] is constantly set to [QUIET] without switching to other modes = 10 000 hours

If you continue to use the lamp unit when the displayed time in [LAMP] has reached 20 000 hours, the lamp turns off automatically at approximately 10 minutes after turning on the power, as it will cause malfunction of the projector.

Note f If a command cannot be executed, the “ER401” response is sent from the projector to the computer.

f If an invalid parameter is sent, the “ER402” response is sent from the projector to the computer.

f ID transmission in RS-232C supports ZZ (ALL) and 01 to 06.

f If a command is sent with a specified ID, a response will be sent to the computer only in the following cases.

g It matches the projector ID g When [PROJECTOR ID] ( x page 77) on the projector is [ALL] f STX and ETX are character codes. STX shown in hexadecimal is 02, and ETX shown in hexadecimal is 03.

*1 Where marked " l " signals indicates in Plug and Play is compatible with EDID of projector. Unmarked signals in Plug and Play may also be compliant if input terminals are written in the format list. Where Plug and Play is unmarked and nothing is written in the format list, difficulties in projecting image may occur even when computer and projector appear to have same resolution.

*2 Pixel-Repetition signal (dot clock frequency 27.0 MHz) only.

*3 When a 1125 (1035)/60i signal was input, it is displayed as a 1125 (1080)/60i signal.

*4 VESA CVT-RB (Reduced Blanking)-compliant.

*5 Only for PT-LW376 and PT-LW336.

*6 The signal with 1/1.001x vertical scanning frequency is also supported.

Note f The number of display dots is 1 280 x 800 for the PT-LW376 and PT-LW336 and 1 024 x 768 for the PT-LB426, PT-LB386 , PT-LB356 and

PT-LB306.

A signal with a different resolution will be projected after converting the resolution to match the projector display.

f “i” added to the resolution value indicates an interlaced signal.

f When interlaced signals are connected, flicker may occur on the projected image.

f The image may not be displayed in full screen according to the computer output setting.
