  • Page 98 6. Installation and Connections WARNING • Installing your projector on the ceiling must be done by a qualified technician. Contact your NEC dealer for more information. • Do not attempt to install the projector yourself. • Only use your projector on a solid, level surface. If the projector falls to the ground, you can be injured and the projector severely damaged. • Do not use the projector where temperatures vary greatly. The projector must be used at temperatures between 41°F (5°C) and 104°F (40°C) (Eco mode selected automatically at 95°F to 104°F/35°C to 40°C). • Do not expose the projector to moisture, dust, or smoke. This will harm the screen image. • Ensure that you have adequate ventilation around your projector so heat can dissipate. Do not cover the vents on the side or the front of the projector.

  • Page 100 6. Installation and Connections NOTE: The projector is not compatible with video decoded outputs of the NEC ISS-6020 switcher. NOTE: An image may not be displayed correctly when a Video source is played back via a commercially available scan converter. This is because the projector will process a video signal as a computer signal at the default setting. In that case, do the following. * When an image is displayed with the lower and upper black portion of the screen or a dark image is not displayed correctly: Project an image to fill the screen and then press the AUTO ADJ. button on the remote control or the projector cabinet. Enabling the computer’s external display Displaying an image on the notebook PC’s screen does not necessarily mean it outputs a signal to the projector. When using a PC compatible laptop, a combination of function keys will enable/disable the external display. Usually, the combination of the “Fn” key along with one of the 12 function keys gets the external display to come on or off. For example, NEC laptops use Fn + F3, while Dell laptops use Fn + F8 key combinations to toggle through external display selections. Cautions when using a DVI signal • When the computer has a DVI output terminal, use a commercially available converter cable to connect the com- puter to the projector’s HDMI 1 or HDMI 2 input terminal (only digital video signals can be input).
