Important Information

Fire and Shock Precautions

Ensure that there is sufficient ventilation and that vents are unobstructed to prevent the build-up of 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 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 100-240V AC 50/60 Hz. Ensure that your power supply fits this requirement before attempting to use your projector.

Do not look into the mirror 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 mirror is extensive, therefore any kind of abnormal objects that can redirect light coming out of the mirror, can cause unpredictable outcome such as a fire or injury to the eyes.

Do not block the light path between the light source and the mirror with any objects. Doing so could cause the object to catch on fire.

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

-Do not bend or tug the power cord excessively.

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

-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.

Turn off the projector and unplug the power cord if the projector is not to be used for an extended period of time.

When using a LAN cable:

For safety, do not connect to the connector for peripheral device wiring that might have excessive voltage.

Important Information

Remote Control Precautions

Handle the remote control carefully.

If the remote control gets wet, wipe it dry immediately.

Avoid excessive heat and humidity.

Do not short, heat, or take apart batteries.

Do not throw batteries into fire.

If you will not be using the remote control for a long time, remove the batteries.

Ensure that you have the batteries’ polarity (+/–) aligned correctly.

Do not use new and old batteries together, or use different types of batteries together.

Dispose of used batteries according to your local regulations.

Lamp Replacement

To replace the lamp, follow all instructions provided on pages 61-62.

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

Note for US Residents

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

Health precautions to users viewing 3D images
