    An air filter is installed in the air intake vent on the bottom of the main body to protect the internal lens and mirror from dust. Should the air filter become clogged with dust, the pro- jector may be damaged since it will block the air flow into the projector and raises the inter- nal temperature of the projector.
  • Page 122: Replacing The Lamp

    When replacing the lamp, turn off the projector, wait until the cooling fan stops, remove the power plug from the AC outlet, and let the projector stand for at least 1 hour. Otherwise, you may get burned because the main unit is very hot immediately Caution after the projector is turned off.

  • Page 129: The Projector Is Forced To Be Turned Off

    Check whether the air intake or exhaust vent is blocked. If the air intake or exhaust vent is blocked, the temperature inside the projector rises and the power is automatically turned off to protect the projector. Wait until the internal temperature gets down, and then turn on the projector without blocking the intake and exhaust vents (P22, 23, 40).
  • Page 130: You Cannot Operate The Remote Control

    Also check whether there is any obstacle between the infrared remote receiver of the projector and the remote control (P29). Check whether the infrared remote receiver of the projector is exposed to direct sunlight or strong light of lighting apparatus (P29).
