Make sure that the specifications of the computer you are using for connection meet the following two requirements. [The computer must have a video signal output port] Make sure that the computer has a port that outputs a video signal. A port that outputs a video signal is called an "RGB port", "monitor port", or "video port" or the like. Consult the section describing "connection to an external monitor" or the like in the instruction manual for the computer that you are using, and make sure that the computer has a video signal output port. Computers with an integrated monitor and other components as well as laptop computers may require separate purchase of an external output port. In other cases, an external output port cannot be attached. [The resolution and frequency of the computer must be within the range of specifications shown on the following page] The resolution and frequency of the video signal output by your computer must be compatible with your projector in order to allow projection (some computers allow partial projection, but clear projection cannot be obtained). Check the resolution and frequency of the video signal in the instruction manual of the computer you are using for projection. Compatible Mode Chart for Connectable Computers If the resolution and frequency of the video signals which are output from the computer do not correspond to any of the values in the table below, those video signals cannot be projected. (In some cases it may be possible to project such signals, but they will not produce clear images.) Check the instruction manual for the computer for details on the resolution and frequency of the video signals. Furthermore, some computers may let you change the output resolution. If this is the case, change the resolution to a value in the table below.

61 Maintenance Projector Cleaning, Lens Replacement, Air Inlet Cleaning .................................................64 Lamp Replacement ................................................. 66 63 64Projector Cleaning, Lens Replacement, Air Inlet Cleaning Clean your projector when it is dirty or image projection is poor. Clean the air inlets every 100 hours in practice. Warning: • The projector cabinet should only be opened by trained service personnel. The projector contains several high voltage components which can cause electric shock. For internal checks, repairs and cleaning, contact your dealer or the nearest address provided at “International Warranty Conditions” in “Safety Instructions/World-Wide Warranty Terms” included in the package. • Use care when handling the power plug and connector. Improper handling may cause fire or electric shock. When handling the plug, observe the following. · Do not insert a plug or connector into an outlet or port if it is dirty or holds foreign matter. · Insert the plug and connector firmly and completely. · Do not pull out the plug or connector with wet hands. Caution: • Never attempt to remove the lamp immediately after use. · Heat may cause burns or other injury. · Wait approximately 60 minutes after switching off power and remove the lamp after the projector has cooled completely. • When performing operations, pull the power plug and connector out of the outlet and port respectively. Switch off power to the projector and disconnect the power cord before cleaning. Cleaning the Projector Unit • Wipe dirt from the projector lightly with a soft cloth. • For heavier dirt, wipe the projector lightly with a cloth soaked in a weak solution of mild detergent and wrung out thoroughly, then dry with a separate cloth. Do not use waxes, benzene, thinners, or other volatile substances. These may degrade the cabinet or strip the finish. Cleaning the Lens Clean the lens with a commercial blower or lens cleaning paper. The surface of the lens is easily scratched and should not be rubbed or struck with hard objects. Cleaning the Air Inlets Accumulated dust in the air inlets degrades ventilation, increases the interior temperature, and can cause malfunction. To prevent debris from entering the air inlets, always stand the projector upright with the lens upward. Then use a vacuum cleaner or other equipment to suck dust from the inlets. Tip: If it is no longer possible to remove the dirt from the air inlets, it is time to replace them. Consult your vendor. 65 66Lamp Replacement Replace the lamp with a new lamp in the following instances. A replacement lamp is an optional part (sold separately). (Model No: ELPLP16) [When the following message is displayed for 30 seconds after projection begins: "Lamp Replace. After the replacement of the lamp, reset the lamp timer under the direction in the user’s manual."] A message will be displayed. [When the problem/alarm display indicator flashes red at 1-second intervals.] Problem/alarm display indicator flashes red at 1-second intervals [When brightness or picture quality is inferior to its original state.] Tip: • If the lamp does not light, replace it even if the lamp life has not expired. • To maintain the original brightness and picture quality, replacement messages are set for approximately 1,400 hours. If you continue to use the lamp after this period, the possibility of the lamp breaking becomes greater. When the lamp replacement message appears, replace the lamp with a new one as soon as possible, even if it is still working. • Though a replacement message appears at approximately 1,400 hours, individual lamp characteristics or usage conditions may cause failure before 1,400 hours, and we recommend that a replacement lamp be kept on hand. • Contact your dealer for a spare lamp. Replacement Tip: • Install the lamp securely. For safety, when the lamp cover is opened, the abnormal warning display indicator flashes red, and the projector lamp goes out. If the lamp or lamp cover is installed improperly, the lamp will not light. 1. Switch off power to the projector and disconnect the power cord after cool-down* ends. Cool-down time varies according to external temperature and other factors. 2. After the projector has cooled completely, remove the lamp cover. • The projector requires approximately 60 minutes to cool completely. • Press on the 2 catches and pull the cover out diagonally. 3. Pull the lamp out. Use a screwdriver to loosen the two lamp retaining screws, then grasp the holds and pull the lamp out. 4. Install a new lamp. Align the lamp properly, insert the lamp until it contacts the rear of the housing, and use a screwdriver to tighten the two lamp retaining screws firmly. 5. Install the lamp cover. Insert the cover diagonally and press it into the projector until you hear the catches click into place. Check that the catches are securely fastened. Tip: After lamp replacement, use the About menu to reset lamp time to its initial value (See page 50). 67 General Notes Optional Accessories ..............................................70 Glossary..................................................................71 Specifications..........................................................73 External Dimensions...............................................75 Index.......................................................................76 69 70Optional Accessories The following optional accessories are available for purchase if required.

Glossary This glossary provides brief explanations of terms which are used in this manual but are not explained in the text or difficult to understand. For details, refer to other available publications. Term Description A/V Mute Refers to temporary stoppage of audio and video. Your projector provides this function when the A/V Mute button is pressed. When the A/V Mute button is pressed again or audio volume is adjusted, this function is released. Aspect ratio The ratio between an image's length and its height. HDTV images have an aspect ratio of 16:9 and appear elongated. The aspect ratio for standard images is 4:3. Color difference signal (component) A type of video signal output by video equipment which actually consists of three separate signals: a red + luminance signal (R-Y), a luminance signal (Y) and a blue + luminance signal (B-Y). Each signal is transmitted along a separate cable. Color difference signals generally result in a better image than composite signals (in which the red, green and blue signals and the luminance signal are all transmitted along a single cable). Color The temperature of an object which is emitting light. If the color temperature temperature is high, the colors tend to take on a bluish tinge. If the color temperature is lower, the colors tend to take on a reddish tinge. Contrast The enhancing or weakening of differences in color lightness and darkness that provides a sharper or softer view of characters and images. This adjustment is referred to as contrast adjustment. Cool-Down After the Power button is pressed and the lamp goes out, lamp cooling is continued. After the lamp goes out, a cooling fan spins, and operational buttons become inactive. Cool-down time takes about 2 minutes. Gamma During image display, the difference of display colors depending on the device used is compensated. SVGA Refers to a 800-pixel (Pix) horizontal x 600-pixel (Pix) vertical display signal for an IBM PC/AT-compatible (DOS/V) computer. SXGA Refers to a 1280-pixel (Pix) horizontal x 1024-pixel (Pix) vertical display signal for an IBM PC/AT-compatible (DOS/V) computer. Sync (synchronization) Signals output by a computer are output at a certain predetermined frequency. If the frequency of your projector cannot match that frequency, a clear image cannot be obtained. Matching of signal phases (peak offset) is referred to as synchronization (synch). If synchronization is not achieved, a projected image displays jitters, blurring, and horizontal noise. 71 Term Description 72Tracking Signals output by a computer are output at a certain predetermined frequency. If the frequency of your projector cannot match that frequency, a clear image cannot be obtained. Matching of signal frequencies is referred to as matching tracking. When tracking is not matched, a projected image displays broad vertical bands. USB An abbreviation for universal serial bus, an interface for connecting a personal computer with a relatively low-speed peripheral device. VGA Refers to a 640-pixel (Pix) horizontal x 480-pixel (Pix) vertical display signal for an IBM PC/AT-compatible (DOS/V) computer. XGA Refers to a 1024-pixel (Pix) horizontal x 768-pixel (Pix) vertical display signal for an IBM PC/AT-compatible (DOS/V) computer. YCbCr The carrier signal which is contained in the color bar signal used in modern TV transmissions (NTSC format). The name comes from the Y (luminance) signal and the CbCr (chroma [color]) signals. YPbPr The carrier signal which is contained in the color bar signal used in high-definition TV (HDTV) transmissions. The name comes from the Y (luminance) signal and the PbPr (color difference) signals. YUV This signal consists of three components, the luminance (Y), red minus luminance (U) and blue minus luminance (V). The human eye is more sensitive for changes in brightness than changes in color. By using this feature, the data volume assigned to the brightness is larger. To prevent a deterioration of the image quality, a high data compression rate is used. This signal format is used for digital video data.
