Replacing the Air Filter
You need to replace the air filter in the following situations:
# After cleaning the air filter, you see a message telling you to clean or replace it.
# The air filter is torn or damaged.
You can replace the air filter while the projector is mounted to the ceiling or placed on a table.
a. Turn off the projector and unplug the power cord.
b. Slide the air filter cover latch and open the air filter cover
c. Pull the air filter out of the projector.
d. Place the new air filter in the projector as shown and push gently until it clicks into place.

Projector Lamp
The projector monitors the number of hours the lamp is used and displays this information in the projector's menu system.
Replace the lamp as soon as possible when the following occurs:
# The projected image gets darker or quality declines.
# A message appears when you turn on the projector telling you to replace the lamp. (message remains displayed for 30 seconds)
The projector's lamp light is flashing orange.
Replacing the Lamp
You can also replace the lamp while the projector is mounted to the ceiling.
Let the lamp fully cool before replacing it to avoid injury.
# Never disassemble or remodel the lamp. If a modified or disassembled lamp is installed in the projector, it could cause a fire, electric shock, or other damage or injury.
a. Turn off the projector and unplug the power cord.
b. Allow the projector lamp to cool down for at least one hour.
When replacing the lamp, there is a possibility that the lamp may be broken. If replacing the lamp of a projector which has been installed on the ceiling, you should always assume that the lamp is cracked, and you should stand to the side of the lamp cover, not underneath it. Remove the lamp cover gently. Be careful when removing the lamp cover as shards of glass may fall out and could cause an injury. If any shards of glass get into your eyes or mouth, contact your local physician immediately.

i. Replace the lamp cover and tighten the screw to secure it.
