USING THE REMOTE CONTROL

Putting batteries into the remote control unit

CAUTION Precautions to observe in regards to the batteries

Always handle the batteries with care and use them only as directed. Improper use may result in battery cracking or leakage, which could result in fire, injury and/or pollution of the surrounding environment.

Keep the battery away from children and pets.

Be sure to use only the batteries specified for use with the remote control. Do not mix new batteries with used ones.

When inserting batteries, verify that the plus and minus terminals are aligned correctly (as indicated in the remote control).

When you dispose the battery, you should obey the law in the relative area or country.

1

Remove the battery cover

Slide back and remove the battery cover in the direction of the

arrow.

Insert the batteries

2 Align and insert the two AA Alkaline batteries (that came with the projector) according to their plus and minus terminals (as indicated in the remote control).

Close the battery cover

3 Replace the battery cover in the direction of the arrow and snap it back into place.

12

Operating the remote control

The remote control works with both the projector's front and rear remote sensors.

The range of the remote sensor on the front is 3 meters with a 90-degree range (45 degrees to the left and right of the remote sensor), and back is 3 meters with a 60-degree range.

Since the remote control uses infrared light to send signals to the projector (Class 1 LED), be sure to use the remote control in an area free from obstacles that could block the remote control's output signal to the projector.

ATTENTION Precautions to observe when using the remote control

Do not drop or otherwise expose the remote control to physical impact.

Do not get the remote control wet or place it on wet objects. Doing so may result in malfunction.

Remove the batteries from the remote control and store them in a safe place if you won't be using the remote control for an extended period.

Replace the batteries whenever the remote control starts to malfunction.

When strong light, such as direct sunlight or light from an extremely close range (such as from an inverter fluorescent lamp), hits the projector's remote sensor, the remote control may cease to function. Adjust the direction of the projector to keep light from directly hitting the projector's remote sensor.

If the projector continues projecting the same image for a long time (i.e. you forget to exit FREEZE mode), the image might possibly remain as an afterimage. Do not leave the projector in FREEZE mode for too long.

THE LAMP

HIGH VOLTAGE

HIGH TEMPERATURE

HIGH PRESSURE

Before replacing the lamp, check the serial number of the replacement lamp bulb (sold separately: 78-6969-9463-7 for S40 / 78-6969-9565-9 for X40), then contact your local dealer.

Before replacing the lamp, turn off the power, and unplug the power WARNING cord, then wait at least 45 minutes, in order to ensure that the lamp is

properly cooled. Removing the lamp bulb while it is still hot could cause burns, or cause the lamp bulb to burst.

The LCD projector uses a glass lamp bulb. It is a mercury lamp with high WARNING internal pressure. High-pressure mercury lamps can break with a loud

bang, or burn out, if jolted or scratched, or through wear over time. Each lamp has a different lifetime, and some may burst or burn out soon after you start using them. In addition, when the bulb bursts, it is possible for shards of glass to fly into the lamp housing, and for gas containing mercury to escape from the projector’s vent holes.

Handle with care: jolting or scratching could cause the lamp bulb to burst during use.

If the replace lamp indicator (see "Related Messages" ( 34 ) and "Regarding the indicator Lamps" ( 35 )) comes on, replace the lamp as soon as possible. Using the lamp for long periods of time, or past the replacement date, could cause it to burst. Do not use old (used) lamps; this is a cause of breakage.

If the lamp breaks soon after the first time it is used, it is possible that there are electrical problems elsewhere besides the lamp. If this happens, contact your local dealer.

If the lamp should break (it will make a loud bang when it does), ventilate the room well, and make sure not to breathe the gas that comes out of the projector vents, or get it in your eyes or mouth.

If the lamp should break (it will make a loud bang when it does), unplug the power cord from the outlet, and make sure to request a replacement lamp from your local dealer. Note that shards of glass could damage the projector’s internals, or cause injury during handling, so please do not try to clean the projector or replace the lamp yourself.

Obey local ordinances when disposing of used lamps. In most cases, it is possible to dispose of used bulbs in the same manner as used glass bottles, but in some cases, bulbs are sorted separately.

Do not use the projector with the lamp door removed.

29

Replacing the lamp

All projector lamps will wear out eventually. If used for long periods of time, the image could become darkened, and the color contrast could be impacted as well. We recommend that you replace your lamps early. If the lamp indicator turns red, or a message prompts you to replace the lamp when you power up the projector, the lamp needs to be replaced. (See "Related Messages" ( 34 ) and "Regarding the Indicator Lamps" ( 35 ) for details.)

Do not reset the lamp timer without replacing the lamp. Reset the lamp timer always when replacing the lamp. The message functions will not operate properly if the lamp timer is not reset correctly.

When the lamp has been replaced after the message of "CHANGE THE LAMP ...THE POWER WILL TURN OFF AFTER 0 hr." is displayed, or the lamp indicator is red, complete the following operation within 10 minutes of switching power ON.

NOTE The lamp indicator is also red when the lamp unit reaches high temperature. Before replacing the lamp, switch power OFF, wait approximately 20 minutes, and switch power ON again. If the lamp indicator is still red, replace the lamp.

THE AIR FILTER

Caring for the air filter

The air filter should be cleaned about every 100 hours. If the lamp indicator and temp indicator blink red simultaneously, or a message prompts you to clean the air filter when you turn on the unit, the filter needs to be cleaned. (See "Related Messages" ( 34 ) and "Regarding the Indicator Lamps" ( 35 ) for details.)

If the air filter becomes clogged by dust or the like, internal temperature rises and could cause malfunction. The power is automatically turned off in order to prevent the unit from overheating internally.

32

OTHER CARE

Caring for the inside of the projector :

In order to ensure the safe use of your projector, please have it cleaned and inspected by your local dealer about once every 2 years. Never try to care for the inside of the unit yourself. Doing so is dangerous.

Caring for the lens :

Lightly wipe the lens with a commercially available lens-cleaning wipe. Do not touch the lens directly with your hand.

Caring for the cabinet and remote control transmitter :

Wipe lightly with gauze or a soft cloth. If soiling is severe, dip a soft cloth in water or a neutral cleanser diluted in water, and wipe lightly after wringing well. Then, wipe lightly with a soft, dry cloth.

WARNING • Make sure to turn off the power and unplug the power cord before caring for the unit. Please carefully read "Product Safety Guide" in this manual, in order to care for your

projector correctly.

Do not use cleaners or chemicals other than those listed above, including benzene and paint thinner.

Do not use aerosols or sprays.

NOTE

Do not polish or wipe with hard objects.

NOTES

Note 1: Although this message will be automatically disappeared after around 3 minutes, it will be reappeared every time the power is turned ON.

Note 2: Lamps have a finite product life. Lamps are characterized by the fact that, after long hours of usage, a lamp will no longer light up, or the lamp will break or burst, etc. This unit is equipped with an automatic shut-down function, such that the power will automatically be turned OFF when lamp usage time has reached 2,000 hours. Please be aware, however, that among lamp types, there are major differences in product lifetimes; a lamp may thus fail to light even prior to the functioning of the automatic shut-down function of this unit.
