Fire and Shock Precautions

Ensure that there is sufficient ventilation and that vents are unobstructed to prevent the build-upof heat inside your projector. Allow at least 4 inches (10cm) of space between your projector and a wall.

Do not try to touch the ventilation outlet on the left front (when seen from the front) as it can become heated while the projector is turned on and immediately after the projector is turned off.

Prevent foreign objects such as paper clips and bits of paper from falling into your projector. Do not attempt to retrieve any objects that might fall into your projector. Do not insert any metal objects such as a wire or screwdriver into your projector. If something should fall into your projector, disconnect it immediately and have the object removed by a qualified service personnel.

Do not place any objects on top of the projector.

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

The projector is designed to operate on a power supply of 100-240VAC 50/60 Hz (NP600/NP500/NP400/NP500W) or200-240VAC 50/60 Hz (NP600G/NP500G/NP400G/NP500WG). Ensure that your power supply fits this requirement before attempting to use your projector.

Do not look into the lens while the projector is on. Serious damage to your eyes could result.

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.

Do not cover the lens with the black 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.

Do not place any objects, which are easily affected by heat, in front of the projector lens or a projector exhaust vent.

Doing so could lead to the object melting or getting your hands burned from the heat that is emitted from the light output and exhaust.

Handle the power cable carefully. A damaged or frayed power cable can cause electric shock or fire.
