RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK
DO NOT OPEN
Before operating this projector, read this manual thoroughly
and operate the projector properly.
This projector provides many convenient features and
functions. Operating the projector properly enables you to
manage those features and maintains it in better condition for
a considerable time.
Improper operation may result in not only shortening the
product-life, but also malfunctions, fire hazard, or other
accidents.
If your projector seems to operate improperly, read this
manual again, check operations and cable connections and try
the solutions in the “Troubleshooting” section at the end of
this booklet. If the problem still persists, contact the sales
dealer where you purchased the projector or the service
center.
Safety Precaution
WARNING : TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE OR ELECTRIC
SHOCK, DO NOT EXPOSE THIS APPLIANCE
TO RAIN OR MOISTURE.
– This projector produces intense light from the projection
lens. Do not stare directly into the lens as possible. Eye
damage could result. Be especially careful that children do
not stare directly into the beam.
– Install the projector in a proper position. If not, it may
result in a fire hazard.
– Take appropriate space on the top, sides and rear of the
projector cabinet for allowing air circulation and cooling the
projector. Minimum distance should be taken. If the
projector is to be built into a compartment or similarly
enclosed, the minimum distances must be maintained. Do
not cover the ventilation slot on the projector. Heat build-
up can reduce the service life of your projector, and can
also be dangerous.
– Do not put any flammable object or spray can near the
projector, hot air is exhausted from the ventilation holes.
– If the projector is not to be used for an extended time,
unplug the projector from the power outlet.

V AC. This projector automatically selects the correct input
voltage. It is designed to work with single-phase power systems
having a grounded neutral conductor. To reduce risk of electrical
shock, do not plug into any other type of power system.
Consult your authorized dealer or service station if you are not sure
of the type of power supply being in use.
Connect a projector with a peripheral equipment before turning a
projector on. (Refer to page 15 –16 for connection.)

This projector uses a high-pressure lamp which must be handled carefully and properly. Improper handling may
result in accidents, injury, or create a fire hazard.
● Lamp life may differ from lamp to lamp and according to the environment of use. There is no guarantee of the
same lifetime for each lamp. Some lamps may fail or terminate their life in a shorter period of time than other
similar lamps.
● If the projector indicates that the lamp should be replaced, i.e., if the LAMP REPLACE INDICATOR lights up,
replace the lamp with a new one IMMEDIATELY after the projector has cooled down.
( Follow carefully the instructions in the LAMP REPLACEMENT section of this manual. ) Continuous use of the
lamp with the LAMP REPLACE INDICATOR lighted may increase the risk of lamp explosion.
● A Lamp may explode as a result of vibration, shock or degradation as a result of hours of use as its lifetime draws
to an end. Risk of explosion may differ according to the environment or conditions in which the projector and
lamp are being used.
IF A LAMP EXPLODES, THE FOLLOWING SAFETY PRECAUTIONS SHOULD BE TAKEN.
If a lamp explodes, disconnect the projector’s AC plug from the AC outlet immediately. Contact an authorized
service station for a checkup of the unit and replacement of the lamp. Additionally, check carefully to ensure that
there are no broken shards or pieces of glass around the projector or coming out from the cooling air circulation
holes. Any broken shards found should be cleaned up carefully. No one should check the inside of the projector
except those who are authorized trained technicians and who are familiar with projector service. Inappropriate
attempts to service the unit by anyone, especially those who are not appropriately trained to do so, may result in an
accident or injury caused by pieces of broken glass.

Cleaning the Projection Lens
Apply a non-abrasive camera lens cleaner to a soft, dry cleaning
cloth. Avoid using an excessive amount of cleaner. Abrasive
cleaners, solvents or other harsh chemicals might scratch a
surface.
When the projector is not in use, replace the Lens Cover.

Follow these steps to clean the projection lens:
Air Filter
Turn off the projector, and disconnect AC power cord from the
AC outlet.
Turn the projector upside down and remove air filters by pulling
the latches upward.

Removable air filters prevent dust from accumulating on the surface of optical elements inside the projector. Should air
filters become clogged with dust particles, it will reduce the cooling fans’ effectiveness and may result in internal heat build
up and adversely affect the life of the projector. Clean air filters following the steps below:
Clean the air filters with a brush or wash out dust and particles.
3
Replace each air filter properly. Make sure that the air filters are
fully inserted.
4
CAUTION
Do not operate the projector with the air filters removed.
Dust may accumulate on optical elements inside the
projector degrading picture quality.
Do not put small parts into Air Intake Vents. It may result in
malfunction of the projector.
RECOMMENDATION
We recommend avoiding dusty/smoky environments when
operating a projector. Usage in these environments may cause
poor image quality.
When using under dusty or smorky conditions, dust may accumulate
on or optical elements inside the projector. This condition may
degrade the quality of a projected image.
When the above symptoms are noticed, contact your authorized
dealer or service station for proper cleaning.
