Notes on use

In order to get the best picture quality

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

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.

Screen

Do not apply any volatile substances which may cause discoloration to the screen, and do not let it become dirty or damaged.

Lamp

The lamp may need to be replaced earlier due to variables such as individual lamp characteristics, usage conditions and the installation environment, especially when the projector is subjected to continuous use for more than

10 hours or the power is frequently turned on and off.

Liquid crystal panel

B Do not project the same image for long periods of time, as this may remain as an afterimage on the liquid crystal panel.

B The liquid crystal panel of the projector is built with very high precision technology to provide fine picture details. Occasionally, a few non-active pixels may appear on the screen as fixed points of blue, green or red.

Please note that this does not affect the performance of your LCD.

NOTE:

B If a selected mode does not match the aspect ratio of the input signal, 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 to display programs 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 program 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 programs should be viewed in 4:3 mode to give proper consideration to the aims and intentions of the original program’s creator.

B The following signals have resolutions that are 16:9 image sizes. The aspect ratios for these signals cannot be changed while being played because they are already established. (Refer to page 54.)

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 after every 100 hours of use.

# Turn off the MAIN POWER

switch and disconnect the power cord plug from the wall outlet.

Turn off the MAIN POWER switch according to the procedure given in “Turning off the power” on page 24 before disconnecting the plug from the wall outlet.

$ Gently turn the projector

upside down.

& Clean the air filter.

Soak the air filter in water and wash out dirt by hand.

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

NOTE:

B Do not use detergent.

B Be careful not to separate the air filter cover from the frame when washing the air filter.

' Dry the air filter and install it to

the projecter.

NOTE:

B Be sure to install the air filter before using the projector. If the projector is used without the air filter 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

NOTE:

B If you need the lamp replacement, please purchase the lamp unit from our customer service.

Lamp unit product no.: ET-LAE500

CAUTION:

B Do not use any lamp unit other than the one with the product number indicated above.

Warning

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 Dispose of the removed old lamp with the same care that would be taken with a fluorescent light.

B A Phillips screwdriver is necessary for removing the lamp unit.

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 2 000 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.

The lamp will automatically shut off when 2 000 hours of use have been reached because of a much greater chance of it exploding after this time.

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 2 000 hours is the intended replacement interval, it is not a period of time covered by warranty.
