About SONY
Sony was founded in 1946 by Masaru Ibuka and Akio Morita, originally as Tokyo Tsushin Kogyo. The company started with a focus on producing innovative consumer electronics, such as radios and tape recorders, and later expanded into various other areas, including televisions, audio equipment, cameras, video game consoles, and mobile devices.

Notes on Installation and Usage

Unsuitable installation

Do not place the unit in the following situations, which may cause malfunction or damage to the unit.

Near walls
To maintain the performance and reliability of the unit, leave space between walls and the unit as illustrated.


Note that the wall on the ventilation hole side may become hot.

Air from air conditioners or the ventilation holes of this unit or other devices may cause oscillation on the screen. Be sure not to install this unit in the area where the air from air conditioners or the ventilation holes of these devices reach the front side of this unit.

Poorly ventilated location
Leave space of more than 30 cm (11 7/8 inches) around the unit.


Hot and humid


Locations subject to direct cool or warm air from an air-conditioner
Installing the unit in such a location may cause a malfunction of the unit due to moisture condensation or a temperature rise.


Near a heat or smoke sensor
A malfunction of the sensor may occur.


Very dusty and extremely smoky locations


Unsuitable Conditions

Do not do any of the following while using the unit.

Tilting front/rear and left/right
Avoid using the unit tilted at an angle, as shown in the following illustrations.

Do not install the unit anywhere other than on a level surface or the ceiling. Installing the unit in such a location may result in uneven color uniformity.

If the unit is tilted up or down, the image on the screen may be trapezoidal. Position the unit so that the lens is parallel to the screen.


When installing the unit at high altitudes
When using the unit in a location at an altitude of 1,000 m (approx. 3,280 feet) or higher, appropriately set “High Altitude Mode” in the Setup menu. Failing to do so could have adverse effects, such as reducing the reliability of certain components.

Safety precautions for installing the unit on a ceiling

  • Never mount the projector on the ceiling or move it by yourself. Be sure to consult with qualified Sony personnel (charged).
  • When installing the unit on a ceiling, be sure to use a safety wire, etc., to prevent the unit from falling. Entrust the installation to an experienced contractor or installer.

For dealers
Be sure to secure the cabinet cover firmly when installing it to the ceiling.


Checking the Supplied Accessories

Check the carton to make sure it contains the following items:

  • Remote control RM-PJ24 (1)
  • Size AA (R6) batteries (2)
