31 Projecting Storing the projector in the carrying bag After turning off the projector, store the projector and accessories as shown in the following illustration. Notes when storing in the carrying bag • If the lens shutter is open when the projector is stored, the lens could be cracked. • If the adjuster feet are extended when the projector is stored, the feet could break. • If the cables are placed on the top surface of the projector, the surface could be damaged. • When carrying the projector in the carrying bag, do not subject it to any shocks, do not drop it, or place anything heavy on top of it. Failure to do so could damage the projector. • As dust accumulates easily in the carrying bag, clean the dust out of the bag before storing the projector. Close the lens shutter Retract the adjuster feet, and then place the projector in the carrying bag with the lens facing up. Put the cables and remote control in the pocket inside the carrying bag, or under the rear of the projector.
Projecting 32 As the projector does not have a zoom function, adjust the size of the projected image by changing the projection distance. The projector should be placed horizontally on top of a desk, etc. so that the projector is perpendicular to the center of the screen. This projector is designed to project at a slightly upward angle above the horizontal plane of the projector. This is so that they can be readily placed on a table and will project forward and upwards onto a screen positioned so that the bottom edge of the screen is above the level of the table. Adjusting the size of the image The size of the image is determined by the projection distance. The below information shows the relationship between the screen size and the projection distance. Positioning the projector 16:10 screen size Projection distance Center of lens Screen Image size Projection distance (m) Screen size (inches) Width (mm) Height (mm) 20 431 269 0.50 30 646 404 0.75 40 862 538 1.00 50 1077 673 1.25 60 1292 808 1.50 70 1508 942 1.75 80 1723 1077 2.00 90 1939 1212 2.25 100 2154 1346 2.50 120 2585 1615 3.00 150 3231 2019 3.75 200 4308 2692 5.00 240 5169 3231 6.00
33 Projecting Adjusting the image height The projector is equipped with 2 adjuster feet. Use the front adjuster foot to adjust the height, and the rear adjuster foot to adjust the inclination of the image. If the projector is not placed on a horizontal surface or the screen and the projector are not perpendicular to each other, the projected image becomes trapezoidal. To correct this distortion, see "Keystone" on page 82 for details. • Do not look into the lens while the light source is on. Strong light from the light source may damage your eyes. Be especially careful that children do not stare directly into the lens. • Be careful when adjusting the feet as they are close to the exhausts that vent hot air. The cabinet etc. gets very hot which could cause a burn. • The adjuster feet can be a choking hazard if swallowed accidentally by small children. Make sure these are placed out of the reach of children. If they are swallowed accidentally, contact a physician immediately. When attaching a camera tripod • When adjusting the height using a tripod, be careful that the projector does not fall. If it falls a malfunction could occur. • See the documentation provided with the tripod for more information on handling and operating the tripod. • When using an elevating tripod, do not extend the elevator. This could cause the projector to fall. Warning Caution
