• 
To reduce the risk of electrical shock, always turn the projector off and disconnect the 
power cord before changing the lamp.
• 
To reduce the risk of severe burns, allow the projector to cool for at least 45 minutes 
before replacing the lamp.
• 
To reduce the risk of injuries to fingers and damage to internal components, use caution 
when removing lamp glass that has shattered into sharp pieces.
• 
To reduce the risk of injuries to fingers and/or compromising image quality by touching 
the lens, do not touch the empty lamp compartment when the lamp is removed.
• 
This lamp contains mercury. Consult your local hazardous waste regulations to dispose of 
this lamp in a proper manner.
• 
To assure optimal performance from the projector, it is recommended that you purchase a 
qualified projector lamp for lamp replacement.
• 
If lamp replacement is performed while the projector is suspended upside-down from the 
ceiling, make sure that no one is underneath the lamp socket to avoid any possible injury 
or damage to the human eyes caused by fractured lamp.
1.
Turn the power off and disconnect the projector from the power outlet. If the lamp is 
hot, avoid burns by waiting for approximately 45 minutes until the lamp has cooled.
2.
Loosen the screws that secure the lamp 
cover on the both sides of the projector 
until the lamp cover loosens.

projector.
• 
Do not turn the power on with the lamp cover 
removed.

Do not insert your fingers between the lamp 
and the projector. The sharp edges inside the 
projector may cause injuries.
