Lamp Handing Precautions

DANGER

This SHP uses a high voltage glass mercury vapor lamp. The lamp can break or fail to light if handled wrongly during replacement or because of the projector’s surrounding temperature.

Lamp life also varies according to the lamp with some even breaking or failing to light as soon as they are used the first time. If the lamp breaks, glass fragments may be scattered inside the lamp unit and projector, and gas inside the lamp bulb that contains mercury vapor may be emitted from the projector’s vent.

Before use, carefully read the projector user guide and the lamp replacement instructions. Remember to handle the lamp with care. In the event of serious trouble, call for Marantz authorized dealer.

Do not look directly into the lamp with bare eyes while lit. The bright light can cause sore eyes and impair vision.

Do not directly expose skin to the light of the lamp. Direct exposure can inflame the skin.

Do not drop, impact, subject to excessive force or otherwise damage the lamp.

Replacing the lamp runs the risk of burns and electric shock, therefore shut OFF power supply, unplug the AC power cord from AC power outlet and wait at least 60 minutes for the lamp to cool down before attempting to replace it.

If the lamp breaks, unplug the AC power cord from AC power outlet and call for Marantz authorized dealer to replace it. Do not replace the lamp yourself or clean up broken glass inside the projector as this can result in cuts and burns to you or damages inside the projector.

If the projector is hung from a ceiling or installed in a high place, it is extremely dangerous to replace the lamp. In this case, do not replace or handle the damaged lamp yourself.

CAUTION

The chance of the lamp breaking is high after extended use. It is recommended to replace the lamp when near the end of its designed life. Do not use a lamp beyond the maximum lighting time.

Use only Marantz original lamp units. Check the model code of the lamp unit matches that in the user guide.

Before replacing the lamp, read carefully “Lamp Unit Replacement” in the user guide. Replace the lamp as explained therein.

Entrust disposal of a used lamp to a licensed industrial waste handler or return it to the place of purchase. Do not break the lamp or discard with general waste.

If the lamp breaks, leave the area immediately and stay away for at least 30 minutes, and ventilate the room so as not to inhale the mercury vapor.

If you inhale the mercury vapor, see a physician immediately and follow his instructions.
