Maintaining the Projector

Y our projector needs little maintenance. All you have to do is keep the lens clean. You may also need to clean the air filter and vent. A clogged air filter or vent can block ventilation needed to cool the projector.

The only parts you should replace are the lamp and air filter. If any other part needs replacing, contact your dealer or a qualified servicer.

This chapter covers the following:

caution

Do not rub the lens with harsh materials or subject the lens to shocks, as it can easily become damaged.

Cleaning the Lens

Clean the lens whenever you notice dirt or dust on the surface.

To remove dirt or smears on the lens, use a commercially available cloth for cleaning glasses.

caution

Do not use wax, alcohol, benzene, paint thinner, or other chemical detergents.

These can damage the case.

Cleaning the Projector Case

Before you clean the case, turn off the projector and unplug the power cord.

To remove dirt or dust, wipe the case with a soft, dry, lint-free cloth.

To remove stubborn dirt or stains, moisten a soft cloth with water and a neutral detergent and firmly wring the cloth dry. Then wipe the case.

note

To order replacement air filters, request part number

V13H134A17. See page 12

for ordering information.

Cleaning the Air Filter

Your projector includes an air filter to ensure the best performance. If dust collects on the air filter (on the side of the projector), clean it as

described on page 123. Dust clogs prevent proper ventilation and can

cause overheating, which can damage the projector.

122

Maintaining the Projector

Follow these steps:

1. Turn off the projector and unplug the power cord.

2. Grip the air filter cover tab and remove the air filter cover as shown.

3. Place your finger into the groove and remove the air filter as shown.

4. With the front of the air filter facing down, tap it four or five times to shake off the dust. Turn it over and tap the other side in the same way to shake off the dust.

5. To clean any dust remaining on the air filter, use a small vacuum cleaner designed for computer and other office equipment to clean the front. If you don’t have one, gently clean the vent with a soft brush (such as an artist’s paintbrush).

6. Insert the air filter back into the holes in the cover, then press it firmly into place.

7. Slide the air filter cover in until you feel resistance.

8. If the dirt is difficult to remove or the filter is broken, replace the

filter as described on page 125. Contact your dealer or call Epson

at 800-GO-EPSON (800-463-7766) to obtain a new filter.

in the Settings menu is set to

High

(default), and

3000 hours if

Brightness Control

is set to

Low

.

See page 130 to check the lamp usage.

It is time to replace the lamp when:

Lamp light

Contact your dealer or call Epson at 800-GO-EPSON

(800-463-7766). Request part number V13H010L47 (G5150NL) or

V13H010L46 (G5350NL and G5200WNL).

Follow these steps to replace the lamp:

1. Turn off the projector and, after the projector beeps twice, unplug the power cord.

2. Let the projector cool for at least an hour (if it has been on). The lamp is extremely hot immediately after use.

3. Loosen the lamp cover screws (you don’t need to remove them).

Then remove the lamp cover.

warning

Let the lamp cool fully before replacing it.

In the unlikely event that the lamp has broken, small glass fragments may be present and should be removed carefully to avoid injury. If the projector has been installed on the ceiling, you should stand to the side of the lamp cover, not underneath it.

If the lamp is used after the replacement period has passed, the possibility that the lamp may break increases. When a lamp replacement message appears, replace the lamp with a new one as soon as possible, even if it is still working.

note

Even when the lamp cover is removed, it is still attached to the projector to prevent it from falling when the projector is mounted on the ceiling.

Transporting the Projector

The projector contains many glass and precision parts. Follow these guidelines to prevent damage:

When shipping the projector for repairs, use the original packaging material if possible, including the protective lens pads.

If you do not have the original packaging, use equivalent materials, placing plenty of cushioning around the projector.

When transporting the projector a long distance, first place it in a hard-shell shipping case, then pack it in a firm box with cushioning around the case.

Attach the lens cover to the lens.

If an SD card is installed, remove it from the projector.

Return the projector feet to their stored (highest) positions.

Turn the vertical lens shift dial so that the lens is in its lowest position.
