    Using the Projector Safely

    Please read the following Safety Precautions before you start using the projector.

    • Keep this user guide in a safe place for later reference.
    • Read all warnings and follow all instructions.
    • Allow at least 20“ (50 cm) clearance around the projector to ensure proper ventilation.
    • Place the projector in a well-ventilated area. Do not place anything on the projector that prevents heat dissipation.
    • Do not place the projector on an uneven or unstable surface. The projector may fall over, causing personal injury or projector malfunction.
    • Do not use if the projector is tilted at an angle of more than 10° degrees left or right, nor at an angle of more than 15° degrees forwards or backwards.
    • Do not look straight at the projector lens during operation. The intense light beam may damage your eyes.
    • Always open the lens shutter or remove the lens cap when the projector lamp is on.
    • Do not block the projection lens with any objects when the projector is under operation as this could cause objects to become heated and deformed or even cause a fire.
    • The lamp becomes extremely hot during operation. Allow the projector to cool for approximately 45 minutes prior to removing the lamp assembly for replacement.
    • Do not use lamps beyond the rated lamp life. Excessive use of lamps beyond the rated life could cause them to break on rare occasions.
    • Never replace the lamp assembly or any electronic component unless the projector is unplugged.
    • Do not attempt to disassemble the projector. There are dangerous high voltages inside which may cause death if you should come into contact with live parts.
    • When moving the projector, be careful not to drop or bump the projector on anything.
    • Do not place any heavy objects on the projector or connection cables.
    • Do not stand the projector on end vertically. Doing so may cause the projector to fall over, causing personal injury or projector malfunction.
    • Avoid exposing the projector to direct sunlight or other sources of sustained heat. Do not install near any heat sources such as radiators, heat registers, stoves, or other devices (including amplifiers) that may increase the temperature of the projector to dangerous levels.
    • Do not place liquids near or on the projector. Liquids spilled into the projector may cause it to fail. If the projector does become wet, disconnect it from the power supply and call your local service center to have the projector serviced.
    • When the projector is under operation, you may sense some heated air and odor from its ventilation grill. It is a normal operation and not a defect.
    • Do not attempt to circumvent the safety provisions of the polarized or grounding-type plug. A polarized plug has two blades with one wider than the other. A grounding-type plug has two blades and a third grounding prong. The wide and third blade are provided for your safety. If the plug does not fit into your outlet, obtain an adapter and do not attempt to force the plug into the outlet.
    • When connecting to a power outlet, DO NOT remove the grounding prong. Please ensure grounding prongs are NEVER REMOVED.
    • Protect the power cord from being treaded upon or pinched, particularly at the plug, and at the point where it emerges from the projector.
    • In some countries, the voltage is NOT stable. This projector is designed to operate safely within a voltage between 100 to 240 volts AC, but could fail if power cuts or surges of ±10 volts occur. In areas where voltage may fluctuate or cut out, it is recommended that you connect your projector through a power stabilizer, surge protector, or uninterruptable power supply (UPS).
    • If smoke, an abnormal noise, or a strange odor is present, immediately switch the projector off and call your dealer or ViewSonic®. It is dangerous to continue using the projector.
    • Use only attachments/accessories specified by the manufacturer.
    • Disconnect the power cord from the AC outlet if the projector is not being used for a long period of time.
    • Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.

    Aspect Ratio

    Refers to the ratio of the image width to the image height.

    Brightness

    Adjusts background black levels of the screen image.

    CEC (Consumer Electronics Control)

    Synchronizes power on/off operation via HDMI connection. That is, if a device that also supports CEC function is connected to the HDMI input of the projector, when the projector’s power is turned off, the power of the connected device will also be turned off automatically. When the power of the connected device is turned on, the projector’s power will be turned on automatically.

    Color

    High Altitude Mode

    Optional mode for users who live in an environment between 1,500 m and 3,000 m above sea level, and the temperature is between 5° C and 25° C. Activating it will improve projector cooling and performance.

    Input Select

    Toggles between the various input options that are available for the projector.

    Keystone

    The distortion of an image caused by projecting it onto an angled surface.

    Light Source Level

    Use Normal or Eco mode to adjust the brightness level and power consumption.

    Movie Mode

    A Picture Mode appropriate for playing colorful movies, video clips from digital cameras, or DVs through the PC input. Best for a low light environment.

    Sharpness

    Adjusts the picture quality of the monitor.

    Troubleshooting Common Problems

    Why doesn't the projector turn on?

    Solution 1 Ensure the power cord is properly attached to the projector and to the power outlet.

    Solution 2 If the cooling process has not completed, please wait until it has finished then try to turn on the projector again.

    Solution 3 If the above does not work, try another power outlet or another electrical device with the same power outlet.

    Solution 4 Check that the battery has remaining power, or needs external power.

    Why is there no picture?

    Solution 1 Ensure the video source cable is connected properly, and that the video source is turned on.

    Solution 2 If the input source is not selected automatically, select the correct source with the Source key on either the projector or the remote control.

    What should I do if the image is blurry?

    Solution 1 Adjusting the Focus Ring will help correctly focus the projection lens.

    Solution 2 Ensure the projector and screen are aligned properly. If necessary, adjust the height of the projector as well as the projection angle and direction.

    Why is the remote control not working?

    Solution 1 Ensure there are no obstacles between the remote control and projector; and that they are within 8 m (26 ft) of each other.

    Solution 2 The batteries may be out of power, please check and replace if necessary.

    What should I do if the projector freezes or doesn't respond?

    Solution Using a paper clip, carefully insert it into the Reset button at the rear of the projector to reset the device.

    Maintaining the Projector

    General Precautions

    • Make sure the projector is turned off and the power cable is unplugged from the power outlet.
    • Never remove any parts from the projector. Contact ViewSonic® or a reseller when any part of the projector needs replacing.
    • Never spray or pour any liquid directly onto the case.
    • Handle the projector with care, as a darker-colored projector, if scuffed, may show marks more clearly than a lighter-colored projector.

    Cleaning the Lens

    • Use a canister of compressed air to remove dust.
    • If the lens is still not clean, use lens-cleaning paper or moisten a soft cloth with lens cleaner and gently wipe the surface.
    CAUTION: Never rub the lens with abrasive materials.

    Cleaning the Case

    • Use a soft, lint-free, dry cloth to remove dirt or dust.
    • If the case is still not clean, apply a small amount of non-ammonia, non-alcohol based, mild non-abrasive detergent onto a clean, soft, lint-free cloth, then wipe the surface.
    CAUTION: Never use wax, alcohol, benzene, thinner, or other chemical detergents.

    Storing the Projector

    If you intend to store the projector for an extended period of time:

    • Ensure the temperature and humidity of the storage area are within the recommend range.
    • Retract the adjuster foot completely.
    • Remove the batteries from the remote control.
    • Pack the projector in its original packaging or equivalent.

    Disclaimer

    • ViewSonic® does not recommend the use of any ammonia or alcohol-based cleaners on the lens or case. Some chemical cleaners have been reported to damage the lens and/or case of the projector.
    • ViewSonic® will not be liable for damage resulting from use of any ammonia or alcohol-based cleaners.
