Parts of the projector may become temporarily heated if the projector is turned off with the POWER button or if the AC power supply is disconnected during normal projector operation.

Use caution when picking up the projector.

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 100-240V AC 50/60 Hz (PX750U)/200-240V AC 50/60Hz (PX750UG). 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 (magnifying glass etc.) out of the light path of the projector.The light path being projected from the lens is extensive, therefore any kind of abnormal objects that can redirect light coming out of the lens, can cause an unpredictable outcome such as a fire or injury to the eyes.

Do not place any objects, which are easily affected by heat, in front of 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 exhaust.

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

-Do not use any power cord other than the one supplied with the projector.

-Do not bend or tug the power cord excessively.

-Do not place the power cord under the projector, or any heavy object.

iii

Important Information

-Do not cover the power cord with other soft materials such as rugs.

-Do not heat the power cord.

-Do not handle the power plug with wet hands.

Turn off the projector, unplug the power cord and have the projector serviced by a qualified service personnel under the following conditions:

-When the power cord or plug is damaged or frayed.

-If liquid has been spilled into the projector, or if it has been exposed to rain or water.

-If the projector does not operate normally when you follow the instructions described in this user’s manual.

-If the projector has been dropped or the cabinet has been damaged.

-If the projector exhibits a distinct change in performance, indicating a need for service.

Disconnect the power cord and any other cables before carrying the projector.

Turn off the projector and unplug the power cord before cleaning the cabinet or replacing the lamp.

Important Information

Note for US Residents

The lamp in this product contains mercury. Please dispose according to Local, State or Federal Laws.

Lamp and Color Wheel Replacement

Use the specified lamp for safety and performance.

To replace the lamp and the color wheel, follow all instructions provided on page 174 and 208 respectively.

Be sure to replace the lamp when the message [THE LAMP HAS REACHED THE END OF ITS USABLE LIFE.

PLEASE REPLACETHE LAMP AND FILTER. USETHE SPECIFIED LAMP FOR SAFETY AND PERFORMANCE.] appears. If you continue to use the lamp after the lamp has reached the end of its usable life, 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 dealer for lamp replacement.

A Lamp Characteristic

The projector has a high-pressure mercury lamp as a light source.

A lamp has a characteristic that its brightness gradually decreases with age. Also repeatedly turning the lamp on and off will increase the possibility of its lower brightness.

CAUTION:

DO NOT TOUCH THE LAMP or THE COLOR WHEEL immediately after it has been used. It will be extremely hot.Turn the projector off and then disconnect the power cord. Allow at least one hour for the lamp to cool before handling.

When removing the lamp from a ceiling-mounted projector, make sure that no one is under the projector. Glass fragments could fall if the lamp has been burned out.

Clearance for Installing the Projector

Allow ample clearance between the projector and its surroundings as shown below.

Avoid installing the projector in a place where air movement from the HVAC is directed at the projector.

Heated air from the HVAC can be taken in by the projector's intake vent. If this happens, the temperature inside the projector will rise too high causing the over-temperature protector to automatically turn off the projectors power.

1. Introduction

Introduction to the Projector

This section introduces you to your new projector and describes the features and controls.

Congratulations on Your Purchase of the Projector

This projector is one of the very best projectors available today.The projector enables you to project precise images up to 500 inches (200 or 300 inches depending on the optional lens) across (measured diagonally) from your PC or Macintosh computer (desktop or notebook), VCR, DVD player, or document camera.

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:

DLP® projector with high resolution and high brightness

High resolution display – WUXGA (1920 × 1200) native resolution (16:10)

Wide range of optional lenses selectable according to the place of installation

This projector supports 6 types of optional lenses, providing a selection of lenses adapted for a variety of installation requirements.

In addition, the lenses can be mounted and removed in one touch.

Note that no lens is mounted upon shipment from the factory. Please purchase optional lenses separately.

Dual Lamp system

Two lamp system offers increased lamp life and energy savings along with redundancy.

Double stackable for built in redundancy and high light output requirements

Double stacking projectors increase the brightness and visibility.

Powered Lens Shift, Zoom, and Focus offer installation flexibility

Powered Horizontal andVertical lens shift provides the ability to project from off center screen installations.Powered zoom and focus provide quick and easy adjustment.

Two types of color wheels (6-segment white) and (6-segment color) interchangeable

The projector is shipped with the 6-segment white color wheel installed. You can replace it with the included 6-segment color wheel to create images with more brilliant colors to match the source.

Wide range of input/output connectors (HDMI, DisplayPort, BNC, etc.)

The projector is equipped with a variety of input/output connectors:computer (analog), 5 BNC, HDMI, DisplayPort, Video, S-Video, etc. (The computer (analog) and BNC connectors also support component inputs.)

The projector’s HDMI and DisplayPort input connectors support HDCP.

Slot for optional board

The projector has a slot for the optional board (SB-01HC or other NEC’s interface boards).

High picture quality processing circuit

IDT HQV processing technology is used to project high quality images.

Energy-saving design with a standby power consumption of 0.4 Watts or less

When the on-screen menu’s standby mode is set to “Power Saving”, the power consumption in the standby mode is 0.2 W (100-120 V AC)/ 0.4W (200-240V AC).

1. Introduction

“Eco mode” for low power consumption and “Carbon Meter” display

The projector is equipped with an “eco mode” for reducing power consumption during use. Furthermore, the

power-saving effect when the eco mode is set is converted into the amount of reductions of CO2 emissions and this is indicated on the confirmation message displayed when the power is turned off and at “Information” on the on-screen menu (CARBON METER).

Seamless switch function for smoother screen changes when switching the signal

When the input connector is switched, the image displayed before switching is held so that that projector can write the new image without going to black.

Simultaneous display of 2 images (PIP/PICTURE BY PICTURE)

Two images can be projected simultaneously with a single projector.

There are two types of layouts for the two images: “picture-in-picture” in which a sub-picture is displayed on the main picture, and “picture-by-picture” in which the main and sub pictures are displayed next to each other.

Security function for preventing unauthorized use

This projector is equipped with the following security functions:

-Password security: When a password is set in the on-screen menu, a screen to input the password appears when the projector’s power is turned on.

-Theft prevention lock: A security cable compatible with Kensington locks can be connected to the projector.

Wired/wireless LAN compatibility (wireless LAN unit sold separately)

The projector is equipped with a LAN port (RJ-45) for connection to a wired LAN for transferring images from a computer to the projector, controlling the projector from a computer, etc.

Furthermore, the projector can be used in a wireless LAN by mounting the separately sold wireless LAN unit (NP02LM).

Convenient utility software (User Supportware) provided as standard

Three utility software programs (Image Express Utility 2.0, PC Control Utility Pro 4, Image Express Utility 2 for Mac) are provided on the included NEC Projector CD-ROM. Two more utility software programs can be downloaded from our website: Virtual Remote Tool and Viewer PPT Converter 3.0.

LAN-compatible viewer function

Still and moving images in shared folders on a computer connected by wired or wireless LAN can be projected with the projector’s viewer.

-The viewer supports the Windows Media Player 11’s “media sharing” function.

Crestron RoomView® compatibility

The projector supports Crestron RoomView®, allowing multiple devices connected in the network to be managed and controlled from a computer.
