Installation Precautions

  • Place the projector in a well-ventilated environment.
    • To prevent internal overheating, install the projector in a well-ventilated place. Do not place anything near the projector. That may block its air vents. If the air vents are blocked, the internal temperature of the projector will increase.
    • Do not place the projector on a carpet or rug. If the projector’s inlet vent is on the bottom, be careful not to block the vent, and always use the projector on a solid, level surface.
    • Be sure to prevent foreign objects such as paper debris from entering the projector.
    • Leave an adequate open area (30 cm (11.8 inches) or more) around the projector.
  • Do not place the projector in a hot, cool, or humid environment.
  • Do not place the projector in a place where it will easily attract dust. – This may result in fire.
  • Never open any cover on the projector. There is a high risk of electric shock.
  • The projector is manufactured using high-precision technology. You may, however, see tiny black dots and/or bright-colored dots (red, blue, or green) that continuously appear on the projector screen. This is a normal result of the manufacturing process and does not indicate a malfunction.
  • The remote control may not work in an environment where a lamp equipped with electronic ballasts or a three-wavelength fluorescent lamp is installed. Replace the lamp with an international standard lamp for the remote control to work normally.
  • To install the ceiling, attach the ceiling-type bracket to the projector with M4 x 8 mm screws.
  • Do not overtighten the screws. It may damage the case, causing the projector to fall and cause serious injury. (Recommended Torque: 4.34 ~ 6.94 ibf-in (5~8 kgf·cm))

Precautions When Using the Mirror Cover

The mirror cover prevents dust from gathering on the lens and mirror while the projector is not in use.

  • Remove the mirror cover before using the projector.
  • Fit the mirror cover in place when the projector is not in use.
    • Doing so will prevent dust from gathering on the lens and mirror.

Projection Distance per Screen Size

  1. Place the projector on a sturdy, level surface, together with the PC or audio/ video source.
  2. Place the projector at an appropriate distance away from the screen. The distance between the projector and the screen determines the actual size of the image.
  3. Position the projector so that the lens is at a right angle to the screen. If the projector is not at a right angle, the projected image will look distorted. To correct the distortion, use the Edge Adjustment function. 
  4. Connect the power cord of the projector and the connected device to the wall outlet.


The projection distance may vary depending on the installation conditions.

NOTE: If the projected image looks distorted or bent, check to see if the screen is installed properly.

Connecting the Antenna or Cable

To watch TV using an indoor/outdoor antenna, connect a wall terminal and the antenna port of the projector using an RF cable (75 Ω).

You can watch terrestrial or cable (analog, digital) TV. (The RF cable is sold separately.)


  • Make sure not to bend the copper wire of the RF cable (75 Ω). Turn the input jack to the right to fasten it.
  • Ensure you use a standard coaxial cable (75
    Ω, sold separately) when connecting to the projector input.
  • For better image quality in locations where signal strength is low, purchase and install a signal amplifier (booster).
  • A signal splitter is required if you want to use two or more projectors through one antenna.
  • If you have any problems when installing the antenna, please consult a suitable retailer or the store where you purchased the antenna.

Focus of the Screen Image

When an image appears on the screen, check if it is in focus and fits the screen properly.
