Precautions

Safety Instructions

1.Check that the operating voltage of your unit is identical with the voltage of your local power supply.

2.Should any liquid or solid object fall into the cabinet, unplug the unit and have it checked by the qualified personnel before operating it further.

3.Do not place the projector on an unstable stand or table.

4.Unplug the unit from the wall socket if it is not to be used for several days. To disconnect the cord, pull it out by the plug. Never pull the cord itself.

5.The wall socket should be near the unit and easily accessible.

6.Do not place the projector where the cord can be stepped on as this may result in fraying or damage to the lead or the plug. Be alert to tripping hazards.

7.Never look into the projector lens when the lamp is switched on as the bright light can damage your eyes. Never let children look into the lens when it is on.

8.Do not place your hand or objects near the ventilation holes. The air coming out is hot.

9.Never open any covers on the projector except the lamp cover. Dangerous electrical voltages inside the projector can cause severe injury. Except as specifically directed in this Instruction Manual, do not attempt to service this product yourself. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.

10.Unplug the projector from the wall socket before cleaning. Use a damp cloth for cleaning the projector housing. Do not use liquid or aerosol cleaners.

11.Keep the plastic packing materials (from the projector, accessories and optional parts) out of the reach of children as these bags may result in death by suffocation. Be particularly careful around the small children.

You can connect the projector to almost any common video source - VHS player, DVD player, camcorder, laser disc player or any other compatible video image source. The projector can accept composite, component, or S-Videosignals:

Composite video is characterized by asingle-pin“RCA-type”video jack, usually colored yellow.

Component video (YCbCr) is less common and features three“RCA-type”video jacks, typically colored green, blue and red.

S-Videois readily identified by a single connector with four small pins.

You can connect the projector simultaneously to composite, component, and S- Video sources. You can select which video source to project using the control panel or remote controller. If the Auto Search feature is ON (see later sections of this manual), the projector will automatically detect and select a source. The projector supports NTSC, PAL and SECAM video formats. The projector will automatically detect and identify the video format. Note, however, whereas the projector can accept multiple simultaneous sources it can only accept one video format at a time.
