Alerts you to situations that may damage the unit, create a hazardous environment, or cause personal injury.

Throughout this manual, component parts and items in the OSD menus are denoted in bold font as in this example:

“Push the Menu button on the remote control to open the Main menu.”

General Safety Information

¾Do not open the unit case. Aside from the projection lamp, there are no user-serviceable parts in the unit. For servicing, contact qualified service personnel.

¾Follow all warnings and cautions in this manual and on the unit case.

¾The projection lamp is extremely bright by design. To avoid damage to eyes, do not look into the lens when the lamp is on.

¾Do not place the unit on an unstable surface, cart, or stand.

¾Avoid using the system near water, in direct sunlight, or near a heating device.

¾Do not place heavy objects such as books or bags on the unit.

Preface

Projector Installation Notice

¾Place the projector in a horizontal position

The tilt angle of the projector should not exceed 15 degrees, nor should the projector be installed in any way other than the desktop and ceiling mount, otherwise lamp life could decrease dramatically, and may lead to other unpredictable damages.

¾Allow at least 50 cm clearance around the exhaust vent.

¾Ensure that the intake vents do not recycle hot air from the exhaust vent.

¾When operating the projector in an enclosed space, ensure that the surrounding air temperature within the enclosure does not exceed operation temperature while the projector is running, and the air intake and exhaust vents are unobstructed.

¾All enclosures should pass a certified thermal evaluation to ensure that the projector does not recycle exhaust air, as this may cause the device to shutdown even if the enclosure temperature is with the acceptable operation temperature range.

Verify Installation Location

¾To supply power, the 3-blade (with earthing lead) socket should be used to ensure proper grounding and equalized ground potential for all of the equipment in the Projector System.

¾The power code provided with the Projector should be used. In case of any missing item, other qualified 3-blade (with earthing lead) power cord can be used as substitution; however, do not use 2-blade power cord.

¾Verify if the voltage is stable, grounded properly and there is no electricity leakage.

¾Measure total power consumption which should not higher the safety capacity and avoid safety issue and short circuit.

¾Turn on Altitude Mode when located in high altitude areas

¾The projector can only be installed upright or inverted.

¾When installation the bracket, make sure the weight limit is not exceed and firmly secured.

¾Avoid installing near air conditioner duct or subwoofer.

¾Avoid installing at high temperature, insufficient cooling and heavy dust locations.

¾Keep your product away from fluorescent lamps to avoid malfunction caused by IR interference

¾The VGA IN connector should be connected to the VGA IN port. Note that it should be inserted tightly, with the screws on both sides securely fastened to ensure proper connection of the signal wire for achieving optimal display effect.

¾The AUDIO IN connector should be connected to the AUDIO IN port and CANNOT be connected to AUDIO OUT or other ports like BNC, RCA; otherwise, it will lead to mute output and even DAMAGE the port.

¾Install the projector above 200cm to avoid damage.

¾The power cord and signal cable should be connected before power on the projector. During the projector starting and operating process, DO NOT insert or remove the signal cable or the power cord to avoid damaging the projector.

iii

DLP Projector – User’s Manual

Cooling notes

Air outlet

¾Make sure the air outlet is 50cm clear of any obstruction to ensure proper cooling.

¾Air outlet location should not be in front of the lens of other projector to avoid causing illusions.

¾Keep the outlet at least 100cm away from the inlets of other projectors

¾The projector generates a massive amount of heat during use. The internal fan dissipates the heat of the projector when shutting down, and such process may continue for a certain period. After the project enters STANDBY MODE status, press the AC power button to turn off the projector and remove the power cord. DO NOT remove the power cord during the shutdown process, as it may cause damage to the projector. In the meantime, the delayed heat radiating will also affect the service life of the projector. The shutdown process may vary depending on the model used. Whatever the case may be, be sure to disconnect the power cord till after the projector enters the STANDBY status.

Air inlet

¾Make sure there is no object blocking air input within 30 cm.

¾Keep the inlet away from other heat sources

¾Avoided heavy dust area

iv

Preface

Power Safety

¾Only use the supplied power cord.

¾Do not place anything on the power cord. Place the power cord where it will not be in the way of foot traffic.

¾Remove the batteries from the remote control when storing or not in use for a prolonged period.

Replacing the Lamp

Replacing the lamp can be hazardous if done incorrectly. See Replacing the Projection Lamp on page 38 for clear and safe instructions for this procedure. Before replacing the lamp:

¾Unplug the power cord.

¾Allow the lamp to cool for about one hour.

Caution:

In rare cases the lamp bulb may burn out during normal operation and cause glass dust or shards to be discharged outward from the rear exhaust vent.

Do not inhale or do not touch glass dust or shards. Doing so could result in injury.

Always keep your face away from the exhaust vent so that you do not suffer from the gas and broken shards of the lamp.

Cleaning the Projector

¾Unplug the power cord before cleaning. See Cleaning the Projector page 40.

¾Allow the lamp to cool for about one hour.

Regulatory Warnings

Before installing and using the projector, read the regulatory notices in the Regulatory Compliance on page 55.

Important Recycle Instructions:

Lamp(s) inside this product contain mercury. This product may contain other electronic waste that can be hazardous if not disposed of properly. Recycle or dispose in accordance with local, state, or federal Laws. For more information, contact the Electronic Industries Alliance at WWW.EIAE.ORG.

Remote Control Parts

Important:

1.Avoid using the projector with bright fluorescent lighting turned on. Certain high-frequency fluorescent lights can disrupt remote control operation.

2.Be sure nothing obstructs the path between the remote control and the projector. If the path between the remote control and the projector is obstructed, you can bounce the signal off certain reflective surfaces such as projector screens.

3.The buttons and keys on the projector have the same functions as the corresponding buttons on the remote control. This user’s manual describes the functions based on the remote control.

DLP Projector – User’s Manual

Remote Control Operating Range

The remote control uses infrared transmission to control the projector. It is not necessary to point the remote directly at the projector. Provided you are not holding the remote perpendicular to the sides or the rear of the projector, the remote will function well within a radius of about 7 meters (23 feet) and 15 degrees above or below the projector level. If the projector does not respond to the remote control, move a little closer.

Projector and Remote Control Buttons

The projector can be operated using the remote control or the buttons on the top of the projector. All operations can be carried out with the remote control; however, the buttons on the projector are limited in use.
