Introduction to the Projector

This section introduces you to your new LT260/LT240/LT220 Projector and describes the features and controls.

Congratulations on Your Purchase of The LT260/LT240/ LT220 Projector

The LT260/LT240/LT220 is one of the very best projectors available today. The LT260/LT240/LT220 enables you to project precise images up to 500 inches across (measured diagonally) from your PC or Macintosh computer (desktop or notebook), VCR, DVD player, document camera, a laser disc player or Viewer.

You can use the projector on a tabletop or cart, you can use the projector to project images from behind the screen, and the projector can be permanently mounted on a ceiling*1.The remote control can be used wirelessly.

*1 Do not attempt to mount the projector on a ceiling yourself.

The projector must be installed by qualified technicians in order to ensure proper operation and reduce the risk of bodily injury.

In addition, the ceiling must be strong enough to support the projector and the installation must be in accordance with any local building codes. Please consult your dealer for more information.

Features you'll enjoy:

The newly developed 3D Reform function allows you to correct trapezoidal distortion for both horizontally and vertically so that the image is square even when projector is positioned off center of the rooms screen.

The LT260/LT240/LT220 projector provides wired and wireless networking. When using as a wireless LAN projector, no physical signal cable connection to a PC is required.*2

*2 A wireless LAN card is required. The NEC optional wireless LAN card is available. (SWL-2100N-N )

INTRODUCTION Introduction to the Projector

Safety protect by Passcode and Security functions

Passcode and Security features prevent the projector from being used by unauthorized individuals.

Passcode prevents unauthorized individuals from changing projector settings or adjustments Security offers complete protection by using your PC card as a protect key so that the projector will not project a signal without insertion of the registered PC card and unauthorized use can be discouraged.

The built-in Viewer allows you to start your presentation even when a PC is not available at the site.

A high-bright 220 watt DC lamp.

The Standby mode reduces standby power consumption significantly.

The supplied wireless remote control that operates the projector from the front side or rear.

The image can be projected between 30 and 500 inches (measured diagonally).

The "Capture" enables you to capture the current projected image.

An image can be projected from in front or behind a screen, and the projector can even be installed on the ceiling.

NEC’s exclusive Advanced AccuBlend intelligent pixel blending technology - an extremely accurate image compression technology - offers a crisp image with UXGA (1600 1200) resolution*3.

Supports most IBM VGA, SVGA, XGA , SXGA/UXGA(with Advanced AccuBlend)*3, Macintosh, component signal (YCbCr/ YPbPr) or any other RGB signals within a horizontal frequency range of 24 to 100 kHz and a vertical frequency range of 50 to 120 Hz. This includes NTSC, PAL, PAL-N, PAL-M, PAL60, SECAM and NTSC4.43 standard video signals.

*3 A UXGA (1600 1200) and SXGA image (1280 1024) are displayed with NEC’s Advanced AccuBlend on LT260/LT240/LT220.

An XGA image (1024 768) is displayed with NEC’s Advanced AccuBlend on LT220.

INSTALLATION AND CONNECTIONS Setting Up the Screen and theProjector

WARNING

*Installing your projector on the ceiling must be done by a qualified technician. Contact your NEC dealer for more information.

*Do not attempt to install the projector yourself.

Only use your projector on a solid, level surface. If the projector falls to the ground, you can be injured and the projector severely damaged.

Do not use the projector where temperatures vary greatly. The projector must be used at temperatures between 41˚F (5˚C) and 95˚F (35˚C).

Do not expose the projector to moisture, dust, or smoke. This will harm the screen image.

Ensure that you have adequate ventilation around your projector so heat can dissipate. Do not cover the vents on the side or the front of the projector.

Reflecting the Image

Using a mirror to reflect your projector's image enables you to enjoy a much larger image. Contact your NEC dealer if you need a mirror. If you're using a mirror and your image is inverted, use the MENU and SELECT buttons on your projector cabinet or buttons on your remote control to correct the orientation. (See page E-95.)

To connect to a PC or Macintosh, simply:

1.Turn off the power to your projector and computer.

2.Use the supplied signal cable to connect your PC or Macintosh to the projector.

3.Turn on the projector and the computer.

4.If the projector goes blank after a period of inactivity, it may be caused by a screen saver installed on the computer you've connected to the projector.

You can connect a separate, external monitor to your projector to simultaneously view on a monitor the RGB analog image you're projecting. To do so:

1.Turn off the power to your projector, monitor and computer.

2.Use a 15-pin cable to connect your monitor to the RGB OUT (Mini D-Sub 15 pin) connector on your projector.

3.Turn on the projector, monitor and the computer.

NOTE: The RGB OUT connector outputs RGB signal during idle mode (See page E-100). When the projector goes into idle mode, the image on an external monitor disappears for a moment. Note that the RGB OUT connector will not output RGB signal during Stanby mode.

• Daisy chain connection is not possible.

PROJECTING AN IMAGE

(BASIC OPERATION)

This section describes how to turn on the projector and to project a picture onto the screen.

Turning on the Projector

NOTE:

When plugging in or unplugging the supplied power cable, make sure that the main power switch is pushed to the off[O] position. Failure to do so may cause damage to the projector.

The projector has two power switches: main power switch and POWER button (POWER ON and OFF on the remote control)

The projector has a feature to prevent itself from being used by unauthorized individuals. To use this feature, register your PC card as a protect key. See "Security" in "Projector Options" on page E-111 for more details.

To turn on the main power to the projector, press the Main Power switch to the ON position ( I ).

Before you turn on your projector, ensure that the computer or video source is turned on and that your lens cap is removed.

Only after you press the ON/STAND BY button on the projector cabinet or POWER ON button on the remote control for a minimum of 2 seconds will the power indicator turn to green and the projector become ready to use.

NOTE: To turn the projector on by plugging in the power cable, first turn on the Main Power switch to ON and use the menu and enable the "Auto Start" feature. (See page E-99.)

Immediately after turning on the projector, screen flicker may occur. This is not a fault. Wait 3 to 5 minutes until the lamp lighting is stabilized.

When the Lamp mode is set to Eco, the Lamp indicator will light green.

If one of the following things happens, the projector will not turn on.

*If the internal temperature of the projector is too high, the projector detects abnormal high temperature. In this condition the projector will not turn on to protect the internal system. If this happens, wait for the projector's internal components to cool down.

*When the lamp reaches its end of usable life, the projector will not turn on. If this happens, replace the lamp.

*If the lamp fails to light, and if the STATUS indicator flashes on and off in a cycle of six times, wait a full minute and then turn on the power.

Use the 3D Reform feature to correct keystone (trapezoidal) distortion to make the top or bottom and the left or right side of the screen longer or shorter so that the projected image is rectangular.

You can also use a mouse to correct the Cornerstone distortion. To do so with your mouse, pick and left-click on one corner of the image you want to correct.

Do this for the remaining 3 corners. Right-click to display the confirmation screen.

NOTE: To return the 3D Reform correction setting values to the factory default, press and hold the 3D REFORM button for a minimum of 2 seconds.

NOTE: During 3D Reform adjustment, "Aspect Ratio" and "Screen" may not be available. Should this happen, first reset the 3D Reform data and then do each setting. Second repeat the 3D Reform adjustment. Changing Aspect Ratio and/or Screen setting can limit 3D Reform in its adjustable range.

The adjustable ranges for 3D Reform are as follows:

Vertical .................

Max ±40° approx.

*The following are conditions at the above maximum angle when all of the following are met
