SPECIAL NOTE FOR USERS IN THE U.K.

The mains lead of this product is fitted with a non-rewireable (moulded) plug incorporating a 13A fuse. Should the fuse need to be replaced, a BSI or ASTA approved BS 1362 fuse marked or and of the same rating as above, which is also indicated on the pin face of the plug, must be used.

Always refit the fuse cover after replacing the fuse. Never use the plug without the fuse cover fitted.

In the unlikely event of the socket outlet in your home not being compatible with the plug supplied, cut off the mains plug and fit an appropriate type.

DANGER:

The fuse from the cut-off plug should be removed and the cut-off plug destroyed immediately and disposed of in a safe manner.

Under no circumstances should the cut-off plug be inserted elsewhere into a 13A socket outlet, as a serious electric shock may occur.

To fit an appropriate plug to the mains lead, follow the instructions below:

IMPORTANT:

The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following code: Blue: Neutral

Brown: Live

As the colours of the wires in the mains lead of this product may not correspond with the coloured markings identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed as follows:

The wire which is coloured blue must be connected to the plug terminal which is marked N or coloured black.

The wire which is coloured brown must be connected to the plug terminal which is marked L or coloured red. Ensure that neither the brown nor the blue wire is connected to the earth terminal in your three-pin plug.

Before replacing the plug cover make sure that:

If the new fitted plug contains a fuse, its value is the same as that removed from the cut-off plug.

The cord grip is clamped over the sheath of the mains lead, and not simply over the lead wires.

IF YOU HAVE ANY DOUBT, CONSULT A QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN.

Be sure to read the following safeguards when setting up your projector.

Caution concerning the lamp unit

Potential hazard of glass particles if lamp ruptures. In case of lamp rupture, contact your nearest Sharp Authorized Projector Dealer or Service Center for a replacement.

See “Replacing the Lamp” on page 71.

CAUTION

PRECAUCI N

PR CAUTION

BQC-PGM20X//1

Do not subject the projector to hard impact and/or vibration.

Take care with the lens so as not to hit or damage the surface of the lens.

Rest your eyes occasionally.

Continuously watching the screen for long hours will make your eyes tired. Be sure to rest your eyes sometimes.

Cautions concerning the setup of the projector

For minimal servicing and to maintain high image quality, SHARP recommends that this projector be installed in an area free from humidity, dust and cigarette smoke.When the projector is subjected to these environments, the lens must be cleaned more often. As long as the projector is regularly cleaned, use in these environments will not reduce the overall operation life of the unit. Internal cleaning should only be performed by a Sharp Authorized Projector Dealer or Service Center.

Do not set up the projector in places exposed to direct sunlight or bright light.

Position the screen so that it is not in direct sunlight or room light. Light falling directly on the screen washes out the colors, making viewing difficult. Close the curtains and dim the lights when setting up the screen in a sunny or bright room.

Avoid locations with high or low temperature.

The operating temperature for the projector is from 41°F to 95°F (+5°C to +35°C)

The storage temperature for the projector is from –4°F to 140°F (–20°C to +60°C)

Do not block the exhaust and intake vents.

Allow at least 11.8 inches (30 cm) of space between the exhaust vent and the nearest wall or obstruction.

Be sure that the intake vent and the exhaust vent are not obstructed.

If the cooling fan becomes obstructed, a protection circuit will automatically turn off the projector. This does not indicate a malfunction. Remove the projector power cord from the wall outlet and wait at least 10 minutes. Place the projector where the intake and exhaust vents are not blocked, plug the power cord back in and turn on the projector. This will return the projector to the normal operating condition.

The projector may safely be tilted to a maximum angle of 10 degrees.

■ Placement should be within ±10 degrees.

10

Cautions regarding the transportation of the projector

When transporting the projector, be sure not to subject it to hard impact and/or vibration, as this can result in damage. Take extra caution with the lens. Before moving the projector, be sure to retract the antenna and the card eject button. Also, be sure to unplug the power cord from the wall outlet, disconnect any other cables connected to it and retract the antenna.

Other connected equipment

When connecting a computer or other audiovisual equipment to the projector, make the connections AFTER turning off the projector and the equipment to be connected.

Please read the operation manuals of the projector and the equipment to be connected for instructions on how to make the connections.

Using the projector in other countries

The power supply voltage and the shape of the plug may vary depending on the region or country you are using the projector in. When using the projector overseas, be sure to use the appropriate power cord for the country you are in.

Temperature monitor function

If the projector starts to overheat due to setup prob-

lems or blockage of the air vents, “” and “ ” will blink in the lower left corner of the picture. If the temperature continues to rise, the lamp will turn off, the TEMPERATURE WARNING indicator on the projector will blink, and after a 90-second cooling-off period the power will shut off. Refer to “Maintenance Indicators” on page 70 for details.

Info

The cooling fan regulates the internal temperature, and its performance is automatically controlled. The sound of the fan may change during projector operation due to changes in the fan speed. This does not indicate malfunction.

Do not unplug the power cord during projection or cooling fan operation. This can create damage due to the rise in internal temperature, as the cooling fan also stops.

Using the Network

Before setting the network

This section explains items that can be set in a network. A wireless connection will not be possible if these items are not set correctly.

Also, as there are values that must be entered in a pre-configured network, make sure to consult with your network administrator.

IP Address

When What is an IP Address?

The IP Address is a number for identifying devices connected to the network. An IP address must be assigned to each device using network values.

Connecting the projector and a computer via a wireless connection is the same as the computer and projector being connected to a wireless LAN network. Therefore, if the projector (and computer) is not assigned an IP address, they cannot be identified and thus a wireless connection cannot be possible.

192.168.150.151

192.168.150.153

 

192.168.150.150

192.168.150.152

192.168.150.154

Assigning IP addresses

When creating a local network where the projector and a computer are connected in a wireless environment, 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.255.254 can be assigned as the IP addresses for the devices connected to that network.

The IP address of the projector is 192.168.0.1 and as long as there are no conflicts, the default settings do not have to be changed.

Example

Projector ................ 192.168.150.150

Computer (no. 1) ... 192.168.150.151

Computer (no. 2) ... 192.168.150.152

For settings, see page 70.

This projector comes with a DHCP server function that automatically assigns IP addresses to devices connected to the network.

For details, see page 70.

Note

The range of IP addresses that can be assigned in a local network is fixed.

IP stands for Internet Protocol.

Wireless Channels

What is a wireless channel?

A wireless channel is a frequency used by wireless LAN cards when communicating. 14 channels can be used. If other wireless LAN networks are being used near the location where the projector is, make sure that different channels have been set to avoid interference.

11ch

6ch

1ch

Assigned wireless channels

If there are no other networks that can cause interference nearby, set either 1, 6, 13, or 14.

The wireless channel set in the projector is 192.168.0.1 and as long as there are no conflicts, the default settings do not have to be changed.

For settings, see page 71.

DHCP server function

What is a DHCP function?

The DHCP server function automatically assigns IP addresses to devices connected to the network. When the Network Settings on the computer have been set to Automatically get IP address (DHCP server enabled), the projector will automatically assign IP addresses.

Check the following if you cannot connect to the network using your wireless LAN PC card.

1.Is the Link indicator o the wireless LAN PC card light?

Lit: operating normally.

Flashing: the wireless LAN PC card driver is not operating properly. Reinstall the driver in the computer.

Off: The card is not in operation. Make sure that the card is installed correctly.

2.Are the SSID, channel and wireless transmission settings of the projector and computer the same?

If the SSID, channel and wireless transmission settings of the computer are not the same, then they cannot communicate.

When communicating with the projector, make sure that the transmission mode has been set to 802.11 ad hoc mode.

3.Check the projector and computer network settings.

When the DHCP “Server” on the projector is “OFF”:

Check again the IP address, subnet mask and gateway values of the projector and computer.

When the DHCP server on the projector is ON:

Check the values of the IP address, subnet mask and DHCP assigned start address of the projector.

If part of the IP address or DHCP assign start address is not identical to the ones specified in the subnet mask, IP address assigning cannot be properly done.

IP address

192.168.150.120
