Hg LAMP CONTAINS MERCURY For State Lamp Disposal

Caution Concerning the Lamp
This projector utilizes a pressurized mercury lamp. A loud sound may indicate lamp failure. Lamp failure
can be attributed to numerous sources such as: excessive shock, improper cooling, surface scratches
or deterioration of the lamp due to a lapse of usage time.
The period of time up to failure largely varies depending on the individual lamp and/or the condition and
the frequency of use. It is important to note that failure can often result in the bulb cracking.
When the lamp replacement indicator and on-screen display icon are illuminated, it is recommended
that the lamp be replaced with a new one immediately, even if the lamp appears to be operating
Should the lamp break, there is also a possibility that glass particles may spread inside of the projector.
In such a case, it is recommended you contact your nearest Sharp Authorized Projector Dealer or
Service Center to assure safe operation.
Should the lamp break, the glass particles may spread inside the lamp cage or gas contained in the
lamp may be vented into the room from the exhaust vent. Because the gas in this lamp includes
mercury, ventilate the room well if the lamp breaks and avoid all exposure to the released gas. In case of
exposure to the gas, consult a doctor as soon as possible.
Replacing the Lamp
Do not remove the lamp unit from the projector right after use. The lamp will be very hot and may cause
burns or injury.
Wait at least one hour after the power cord is disconnected to allow the surface of the lamp unit to fully
cool before removing the lamp unit.
Carefully change the lamp by following the instructions described in this section.
* If you wish, you may have the lamp replaced at your nearest Sharp Authorized Projector
