Yes, there is a hidden menu: the "Ex Option Menu". I have the AE3000, but it seems that the procedure to enter in this service menu is the same:
1. When the projector is power ON, press "POWER" button on the main unit or remote control unit to display "POWER OFF" confirmation screen.
2. Press the right-arrow button to select "CANCEL" in the "POWER OFF" confirmation screen.
3. On the main unit or remote control unit, press the buttons in order of up-arrow, down-arrow, up-arrow, down-arrow and "ENTER".
(When the "ENTER" button is pressed, "EXT OPTION" menu is displayed.)Unless you know what you're doing, don't change anything in the sub-menus of the Ex Option Menu.
The sub-menus are:· FAN FULLMODE
Setting the cooling fan motor rotation speed.
Switching ON "FAN FULLMODE", the rotation level of the fan becomes high-speed rotation (fixed). Moreover, when "FAN FULLMODE" is ON, changing "ALTITUDE" in OPTION becomes impossible (setting FAN FULLMODE is given priority more than ALTITUDE).· AUTO SETUP
Setting AUTO SETUP mode
− NORMAL: To set the normal mode (the dot clock is adjusted strictly)
− SPECIAL: To set the special mode (the dot clock is adjusted roughly)
* Do not change the initial setting (NORMAL).· SELF CHECK
This mode is used to narrow down the location of the failure
The result of items "IRIS", "FAN", "FAN1", "FAN2", "FAN3", "FAN4", "TEMP", "LAMP" and 2000H, the OK display becomes red characters
when shutting down because abnormality happened last time.
· FLICKER ADJUST
To enter the flicker adjustment mode· 525i SD
When non-standard signal of 525i/625i is inputted (AV amplifier, etc.), synchronization might be disordered according to connected equipment. In this case, set 525i SD to ON.· OS
When a component signal (except 525i, 625i, 1125/60p and 1125/50p) is inputted, reflection noise (vertical striated beat) might be generated according to connected equipment. In this case, set OS to ON. However, the resolution decreases a little.· HPLL
When non-standard signal of VIDEO/S-VIDEO is inputted (VTR, VHD, etc.), horizontal synchronization might be disordered according to connected equipment. In this case, set HPLL to OFF.
