Important Safety Instructions

Follow these safety instructions when setting up and using the projector:
  • Do not look into the lens when the projector is on. The bright light can damage your eyes. Avoid standing in front of the projector so the bright light does not shine into your eyes.
  • Do not place the projector on an unstable cart, stand, or table. If the projector is placed on the floor or another flat surface, the optional floor stand should be installed to prevent the projector from tipping over.
  • When installing or adjusting the direct mount, do not use adhesives to prevent the screws from loosening and do not use oils or lubricants. This may cause the projector case to crack and the projector to fall from its mount. This could cause serious injury to anyone under the mount and could damage the projector.
  • If the projector is mounted on a ceiling or wall, it should be installed by qualified technicians using mounting hardware designed for use with this projector.
  • Do not install the projector in wiring ducts other than as specified.
  • If the projector is mounted overhead, make sure to install the included safety wire to prevent the projector from falling. This could cause serious injury to anyone under the mount and could damage the projector.
  • When adjusting the orientation of the projector, make sure that the projected light does not shine on the power unit. This may cause the projector to overheat and serious injury or fire may occur.
  • Do not use the projector near water, sources of heat, high-voltage electrical wires, or sources of magnetic fields.
  • Use the type of power source indicated on the projector. Use of a different power source may result in fire or electric shock. If you are not sure of the power available, consult your dealer or power company.
  • If you use the projector in a country other than where you purchased it, use the correct power cord for that country.
  • Take the following precautions when handling the plug: Do not hold the plug with wet hands. Do not insert the plug into a dusty outlet. Insert the plug firmly into the outlet. Do not pull the power cord when disconnecting the plug; always be sure to hold the plug when disconnecting it. Do not overload wall outlets, extension cords, or power strips. Failure to comply with these precautions could result in fire or electric shock.
  • Do not place the projector where the cord can be walked on. This may result in fraying or damage to the plug.
  • Do not modify the power cord. Do not place heavy objects on top of the power cord or bend, twist, or pull it excessively. Keep the power cord away from hot electrical appliances.
  • Do not tie the power cord and other cables together. This could cause fire or electric shock.
  • Unplug the projector from the wall outlet and refer servicing to qualified service personnel under the following conditions: if it does not operate normally when you follow the operating instructions, or exhibits a distinct change in performance; if smoke, strange odors, or strange noises come from the projector; if the power cord or plug is damaged or frayed; if liquid or foreign objects get inside the projector, or if it has been exposed to rain or water; if it has been dropped or the housing has been damaged.
  • Do not touch the plug during an electrical storm. Otherwise, you may receive an electric shock.
  • Unplug the projector when it will not be used for extended periods.
  • Unplug the projector from the wall outlet and allow to cool before cleaning. Use a dry cloth (or, for stubborn dirt or stains, a moist cloth that has been wrung dry) for cleaning. Do not use liquid or aerosol cleaners, any sprays containing flammable gas, or solvents such as alcohol, paint thinner, or benzine.
  • Do not use the projector where it may be exposed to rain, water, or excessive humidity.
  • Do not use or store the projector where it may be exposed to smoke, steam, corrosive gases, excessive dust, vibration, or shock.
  • Do not use the projector where flammable or explosive gases may be present.
  • Do not use or store the projector or remote control in a hot location, such as near a heater, in direct sunlight, or in a closed vehicle.
  • Do not use the projector outside of the required temperature range below:

    41 to 104 °F (5 to 40 °C)

    Doing so may cause an unstable display and could lead to projector damage. Do not use or store the projector where it may be exposed to sudden changes in temperature.

  • Do not block the slots and openings in the projector case. They provide ventilation and prevent the projector from overheating. If you are setting up the projector near a wall, leave at least 11.8 inches (30 cm) of space between the wall and the projector.
  • If you are using two or more projectors side-by-side, leave at least 20 inches (50 cm) of space between the projectors to allow for proper ventilation.
  • If you are using the projector at an altitude that exceeds 4,921 feet (1,500 m), make sure to set the High Altitude Mode setting to On.
  • Do not operate the projector in a closed cabinet unless proper ventilation is provided.
  • Do not block the lens during projection using a book or any other object, especially flammable objects. This could damage the projector or cause a fire.
  • Do not touch the lens with your fingers. Doing so may leave a reside on the lens and cause projection quality to deteriorate.
  • Do not store the projector outside of the required temperature range of 14 to 140 °F (–10 to 60 °C) or in direct sunlight for long periods of time. Doing so may cause damage to the case.
  • When storing the projector, remove the batteries from the remote control.
  • Do not place anything that can become warped or damaged by heat near the exhaust vents. Do not bring your hands or face close to the vents while projection is in progress. Do not bring your face close to the projector while it is in use.
  • Do not place your hand or any object near the air exhaust vent. The high temperature could cause burns, fire, or other damage.
  • Do not place the source of an open flame, such as a lit candle, on or near the projector.
  • Never allow objects of any kind to enter any openings in the projector. Do not leave objects, especially flammable objects, near the projector. Never spill liquid of any kind into the projector.
  • You may need to clean the air intake or exhaust vent. A clogged air vent can block ventilation needed to cool the projector. Do not use canned air, or the gases may leave a residue.
  • Before you move the projector, turn off the power, unplug the power cable from the outlet, and disconnect all cables.
  • Except as specifically explained in this manual, do not attempt to service this product yourself. Refer all servicing to qualified personnel. Opening or removing the projector case may expose you to dangerous voltages and other hazards.
