Home Support Projectors EB Series Epson EB-PU2010B

I installed an optional lens and now the lights on my projector indicate a lens shift error. What should I do?

  • When the Status light is flashing blue and the Laser and Temp lights are orange, your projector is indicating a lens shift error. When the projector is in this state, you will need to press and hold the Lens Shift button on the remote controller until the lens starts to move. Then, release the button, wait for the lens to stop moving, and power cycle the projector.

    If the error continues, you will need to remove, reattach, and calibrate the lens to correct the lens shift error. See the instructions below.

    Removing a Lens

    You can remove a lens to replace it with a different lens.

    Warning: Wait at least 30 minutes to remove or replace the lens after turning off the projector. Touching the lens unit before it cools down may cause burns.

    Caution:
    Remove the lens only when necessary and make sure the front of the projector is not facing up when you remove the lens. This prevents dirt or dust from entering the projector and lowering the projection quality. Avoid touching the lens with your bare hands to prevent fingerprints on or damage to the lens surface.

    1. Press and hold the Lens Shift (remote control) or Lens (control panel) button for approximately 3 seconds to move the lens to the center position.
    2. Turn off the projector and unplug the power cord.
    3. Pull the lens cover off of the projector.

    4. Remove the stopper, if necessary.

    5. Hold the lens firmly as you pinch the lock lever and move it to the Release position. Then, gently pull the lens straight out of the projector.

    Attaching a Lens

    You can attach a compatible lens to the projector.

    Caution:
    Unplug the power cord from the projector before attaching the lens. Avoid touching the lens with your bare hands to prevent fingerprints on or damage to the lens surface.

    1. Pull the lens cover off of the projector.

    2. Remove the stopper, if necessary.

    3. Pinch the lock lever and move it to the Release position.

      Note: When using one of the following lenses, attach the lens connector cap: ELPLS04, ELPLU02, ELPLR04, ELPLW04, ELPLM06, ELPLM07, or ELPLL07.

    4. Insert the lens straight into the projector's lens socket with the white dot facing up.

    5. Hold the lens firmly after it is fully inserted, then pinch the lock lever and move it to the Lock position.

      Note: Make sure the lens is securely attached.

    6. Reattach the stopper.

    7. Replace the lens cover.

    8. If prompted, select Yes to calibrate the lens.

      Note: If no message appears after attaching the lens, perform lens calibration by holding down the Default button on the remote control for approximately 3 seconds, or you can go to Extended > Operation > Lens Calibration in the projector menu.

      Note: Lens calibration helps the projector to correctly acquire the lens position and adjustment range, and can take up to 100 seconds to complete. When calibration is finished, the lens returns to the same position it was in before calibration (ELPLX01/ELPLX01S, ELPLX01W/ELPLX01WS, ELPLX02/ELPLX02S, ELPLX02W/ELPLX02WS returns to the standard position).

    9. When using one of the following lenses, select the lens type in the Extended menu: ELPLS04, ELPLU02, ELPLR04, ELPLW04, ELPLM06, ELPLM07, or ELPLL07.
    If projecting down, we recommend securing the lens cover with commercially available screws (M3×12mm).
