  • Page 122 OPERATIONS [2] Remove the panels at the top and right side of the screen unit to be replaced. (Remove 12 screws. ) The panels are made of polycarbonate. Adhesive double coated tapes are pasted to the frames. When removing the panels, do not pull the panels in directions which are difficult to pull, but pull straight as much as possible as shown in fig.
  • Page 123 OPERATIONS [5] Attach a new screen. While paying attention to the front and back, attach the fresnel lens. (Flat side:The shiny side is for the projection unit side.) [6] In the same way, attach the lenticular sheet while paying attention to the front and back. (The shiny side is for the fresnel lens side.) * When attaching the screen, past the adhesive double coated tape properly by rubbing the tape with your finger with force.
  • Page 125 OPERATIONS 2. When all panels have been removed, the top and right side of the screen will become free. Remove the screen by pulling it out from the top right. (Fig. 5-9.) Note: The panel is fixed by adhesive double coated tape at the left side and bottom of the screen, but the lenticular sheet can be removed relatively easily.
  • Page 126 OPERATIONS [3] Adjusting the screen angle finely The angle of the screen can be adjusted finely (top, bottom, left and right) by inserting and removing cabinet spacers.

  • Page 128 OPERATIONS Notes • To produce fine joint, the left side and bottom of the screen are secure with adhesive double coated tape. Make sure the replaced screen is attached closely to the left and bottom sides of the panel. If not attached closely, the screen will discon- nect from the panels when it expands and contracts according to temperature and humidity changes, or in the worst case, drop off.
  • Page 130 OPERATIONS 3. PRECAUTIONS FOR ASSEMBLING AND MAINTENANCE • Periodically clean the vent nets of the fan of the multi-projection unit to prevent it from clogging. • In assemblies and maintenance, the service person must move in the cabinet. The following are precautions for this proce- dure.
  • Page 131 CHAPTER 6. PRECAUTIONS 1. PRECAUTIONS ON FUNCTION AND PERFORMANCE OF SYSTEM • The picture may turn to disorder temporarily due to power discharge inside the CRT tube, but it will recover automatically after a few seconds. In the new CRT, the very slight amount of impurities remaining inside (in vacuum) may occasionally evaporate when hit with electron beam.
