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.

The actual lamp life may vary depending upon the individual lamp, the environmental conditions and usage.

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.

3. Convenient Features

NOTE:

The [ECO MODE] can be changed by using the menu. Select [SETUP] [GENERAL] [ECO MODE].

The lamp life remaining and lamp hours used can be checked in [USAGE TIME]. Select [INFO.] [USAGE TIME].

The projector is always in [NORMAL] for 90 seconds after the lamp is turned on and while the POWER indicator is blinking green. The lamp condition will not be affected even when [ECO MODE] is changed.

After a lapse of 1 minute from when the projector displays no-signal guidance, a blue, black or logo screen, [ECO MODE] will automatically switch to [ECO]. The projector will return to its original setting once a signal is accepted.

If the projector is overheated in [OFF] mode, there may be a case where the [ECO MODE] automatically changes to [NORMAL] mode to protect the projector. When the projector is in [NORMAL] mode, the picture brightness decreases. When the projector comes back to normal temperature, the [ECO MODE] returns to its original setting.

Thermometer symbol [ ] indicates the [ECO MODE] is automatically set to [NORMAL] mode because the internal temperature is too high.

Immediately after [ECO MODE] is changed from [ECO] to one of [OFF], [AUTO ECO], or [NORMAL], the lamp brightness may decrease temporarily. This is not a malfunction.

Checking Energy-Saving Effect [CARBON METER]

This feature will show energy-saving effect in terms of CO2 emission reduction (kg) when the projector’s [ECO MODE] is set to [AUTO ECO], [NORMAL], or [ECO].This feature is called as [CARBON METER].

There are two messages: [TOTAL CARBON SAVINGS] and [CARBON SAVINGS-SESSION].The [TOTAL CARBON SAVINGS] message shows the total amount of CO2 emission reduction from the time of shipment up to now.You can check the information on [USAGE TIME] from [INFO.] of the menu. (→ page 99)

The [CARBON SAVINGS-SESSION] message shows the amount of CO2 emission reduction between the time of changing to ECO MODE immediately after the time of power-on and the time of power-off.The [CARBON SAVINGSSESSION] message will be displayed in the [POWER OFF/ ARE YOU SURE?] message at the time of power-off.

TIP:

The formula as shown below is used to calculate the amount of CO2 emission reduction.

Amount of CO2 emission reduction = (Power consumption in OFF for ECO MODE − Power consumption in AUTO ECO/NORMAL/ ECO for ECO MODE) × CO2 conversion factor.* When the image is turned off with the AV-MUTE button, the amount of CO2 emmission reduction will also increase.

* Calculation for amount of CO2 emission reduction is based on an OECD publication “CO2 Emissions from Fuel Combustion, 2008 Edition”.

The [TOTAL CARBON SAVINGS] is calculated based on savings recorded in 15 minutes intervals.

This formula will not apply to the power consumption which is not affected by whether [ECO MODE] is turned on or off.
