Please save the original box and packing materials if you ever need to ship your Dukane Projector.

Lens cap

Projector

5.Keep any items such as magnifying glass out of the light path of the projector. The light being projected from the lens is extensive, therefore any kind of abnormal objects that can redirect light coming out of the lens, can cause unpredictable outcome such as fire or injury to the eyes.

6.Do not cover the lens with the supplied lens cap or equivalent while the projector is on. Doing so can lead to melting of the cap and possibly burning your hands due to the heat emitted from the light output.

7.The projector is designed to operate on a power supply of 100-120or200-240V 50/60 Hz AC. Ensure that your power supply fits this requirement before attempting to use your projector.

8.Handle the power cable carefully and avoid excessive bending. A damaged cord can cause electric shock or fire.

9.If the projector is not to be used for an extended period of time, disconnect the plug from the power outlet.

10.Do not touch the power plug during a thunderstorm. Doing so can cause electrical shock or fire.

CAUTION

1.Do not try to touch the ventilation outlet on the front as it can become heated while the projector is turned on.

2.Do no use the tilt-footfor purposes other than originally intended. Misuses such as gripping thetilt-footor hanging on the wall can cause damage to the projector.

3.When carrying the projector by the carrying handle, make sure the two screws that attach the carrying handle to the projector cabinet are tight.

Insufficient tightening of the two screws could result in the projector falling and causing injury.

4.Enable High-SpeedFan mode if you continue to use the projector for consecutive days. (From the menu, select [Advanced] → [High Speed Fan Mode].)

5.Do not unplug the power cable from the wall outlet under any one of the following circumstances.

Replacing the Lamp

After your lamp has been operating for 2000 hours (up to 3000 hours in Eco mode) or longer, the LAMP indicator in the cabinet will blink red and the message will appear. Even though the lamp may still be working, replace it at 2000 (up to 3000 hours in Eco mode) hours to maintain optimal projector performance.

CAUTION

DO NOT TOUCH THE LAMP immediately after it has been used. It will be extremely hot. Turn the projector off, wait 60 seconds, turn off the main power switch and then disconnect the power cable. Allow at least one hour for the lamp to cool before handling.

DO NOT REMOVE ANY SCREWS except the lamp cover screw and two lamp case screws. You could receive an electric shock.

The projector will turn off and go into stand by mode after 2100 (up to 3100 hours in Eco mode) hours of service. If this happens, be sure to replace the lamp. If you continue to use the lamp after 2000 hours (up to 3000 hours in Eco mode) of use, the lamp bulb may shatter, and pieces of glass may be scattered in the lamp case. Do not touch them as the pieces of glass may cause injury. If this happens, contact your NEC dealer for lamp replacement.

To replace the lamp:

1.Loosen the lamp cover screw until the screwdriver goes into a freewheeling condition and remove the lamp cover. The lamp cover screw is not removable.

Catch

2.Loosen the two screws securing the lamp housing until the screwdriver goes into a freewheeling condition. The two screws are not removable.

Remove the lamp housing by holding it.

NOTE: There is an interlock on this case to prevent the risk of electrical shock. Do not attempt to circumvent this interlock.

Catch

Interlock

CAUTION

Do not use a lamp other than the NEC replacement lamp (VT60LP). Order this from your NEC dealer.

Secure it in place with the two screws.

Be sure to tighten the screws.

4.Reattach the lamp cover.

Tighten the lamp cover screw. Be sure to tighten the screw.

5.After you install a new lamp, select the menu [Default][Clear Lamp Hour Meter] to reset the lamp usage hours.
