Here’s a refresher on safety tips for your Sanyo projector.

Keep it working at its optimal levels.


  • Always unplug from the AC power supply before cleaning, changing the lamp or replacing the air filters.
  • Unplug the projector when it’s left unattended or not being used for long periods of time. This will prevent any damages from power surges.
  • Don’t expose your Sanyo projector to any rain or water. Avoid excessively damp areas.
  • Always place the projector on a stable cart, stand or table recommended by the manufacturer.
  • If you are moving the projector on a cart with wheels go slow! Quick stops, traveling over uneven surfaces or excessive force can make both the cart and projector topple over causing damage to the projector.
  • Buy a mounting kit that is approved by Sanyo and never try to adapt a mounting kit from another brand.
  • Don’t locate the projector anywhere where the cord will be stepped on or damaged.
  • Don’t plug the projector into an outlet already overloaded. Use an extension cord that is not shared with other equipment to prevent overloading the circuit.
  • The only cover you should be opening is the one for the lamp. Never open anything else as this can expose you to high voltage or hazardous materials. Call a qualified service technician for anything other than changing the projector lamp or air filter.
  • Unplug this projector from wall outlet immediately and call a service technician when:
    • a. When the power cord or plug is damaged or frayed.
      b. If liquid has been spilled into the projector.
      c. If the projector has been exposed to rain or water.
      d. If the projector does not operate normally by following the operating instructions.
      e. If the projector has been dropped or the cabinet has been damaged.
      f. When the projector exhibits a distinct change in performance.
  • Make sure all back and bottom ventilation slots are free from dust and any blockages. These ventilation slots stop the projector from overheating.
  • Never place the projector on a bed, rug, sofa or any other soft surface that would block the ventilation slots.
  • Give plenty of space on the top, sides and rear of the projector cabinet to allow the air to circulate and cool down the projector.
  • Never place on a radiator or heat register or inside a book case where there is no ventilation.
  • Do not install the projector near the ventilation duct of air-conditioning equipment.
  • Don’t stare directly into the lens as the projector produces intense light and can damage your eyesight. Children should be prevented from staring directly into the beam.
  • Install the projector in a proper position. If not, it may result in a fire hazard.
