• Lens Arrays A and B
After dispersion of the light from the light source lamp by lens arrays A and B, the
brightness is roughly uniform. A UV filter coats the surface of the multi-lens array to
eliminate ultraviolet rays. The light dispersed through the lens arrays A and B is further
dispersed through the PBS to make the light intensity uniform.
• CDM
The CDM is a light filter that looks red in visual light. The CDM (A) filter transmits only
red light and reflects blue and green light from the light source.
• GDM
The GDM is a light filter that looks blue in visual light. The GDM filter transmits only
blue light and reflects the green light provided by the CDM.
• Condenser Lens L
Condenser lens L collects the light dispersed by the lens arrays A and B to prevent
reduction and provide light to mirror L in the next stage.

2.12 LAMP INNER HOUSING
The lamp inner housing consists of the DC drive light source lamp (150 W), the power
supply connector, and the fuse board (FU board). The lamp mounted on the base of the
lower case is a user-replaceable item (type: ELPLP04). The average brightness of the
lamp is 650 (7000XB) / 750 (5000XB) Im (ANSI).

The fuse board (FU board) determines whether the lamp inner housing is installed, and
controls the lamp life (2000 hours). The power supply connector receives 350 VDC from
the power supply unit. Its lead wire is connected to the lamp.

(If the lamp indicators blink alternately when you turn the projector on. so you should replace the lamp as soon as possible. the orange and red lamp indicators blink alternately. You cannot replace it with a used inner housing because the fuse on the FU board is blown when you start the lamp. Then the cooling down operation starts (the orange lamp indicator blinks). the lamp is turned off. the lamp life is no more than 100 hours. The lamp runs only 100 hours after the orange and the red lamp indicators start to blink alternately. which prevents a used housing from being recognized as a new unit.

(Treat as one replaceable part in field maintenance.) • Optical head unit • Prism unit • Light guide unit • Projection lens unit • Driver board Note: • Do not disassemble the optical engine or replace any unit in the optical engine. Caution: Do not disassemble the light guide unit.2. the alignment of lenses or mirrors may be changed or dust may stick to the unit. If you remove the upper guide cover from the unit. it cannot be adjusted in the field. • Do not exchange any unit of the optical engine for the matching unit in another optical engine. the optical engine is one replaceable part.

EPSON PowerLite 5000XB/7000XB Service Manual

Cautions for Field Maintenance

Observe the following procedures when you repair the projector. Otherwise, display quality
is not guaranteed.

Note:
Violating any of the following points voids the manufacturer’s warranty, and EPSON
repair service will no longer be available.

• Do not disassemble the optical block or loosen any screws.
• If either the optical block or the driver board requires replacement, replace them as a set.
Also, when you send them back for repair, send them back as a set (optical engine).

Precautions

The following precautions are for the individual assembly and disassembly procedures.
Read them carefully before starting the assembly or disassembly procedure. A set of
general precautions is given below.

• As you disassemble the main unit, dust that has collected on the internal fans and air filters
is likely to migrate and contaminate light valves R, G, and B (the heart of the display
mechanism), deteriorating the display quality. To prevent this from occurring, check for dust
inside of the main unit and, if necessary, clean it with a vacuum cleaner before
reassembling. Light valves R, G, and B and circuit board assemblies are highly sensitive to
static electricity. When you remove an optical engine or circuit board, place it in an anti-
static bag immediately.
• When you perform the assembly or disassembly operations listed below, check the unit and
its surfaces for any dirt before reinstalling. If the unit is dirty, clean it.
– Removing the optical engine
– Removing the lamp inner housing
– Removing the air filter frame

• The speaker unit incorporates a permanent magnet. Keep it away from electromagnetic
media such as floppy disks and magnetic cards.
• Handle the optical engine (projector lens and light guide unit) with care. They are highly
susceptible to vibration and shock.
• Do not try to disassemble any part that is not covered in this manual (for example, the
optical engine or power supply unit).

The flowchart for disassembling the projector main unit is shown below.

Note:
• Since the PowerLite 5000XB and PowerLite 7000XB are disassembled in the same
manner, only one procedure is shown.
• Since you can reassemble the dismantled projector parts by reversing the order of
disassembly, no assembly procedures are provided.

Prerequisite conditions: None

Warning:
• The lamp unit is very hot during use and immediately after, and may burn you if handled
carelessly. Before removing the lamp unit, make sure the lamp inner housing unit has
cooled.
• When installing the lamp unit, take care not to touch the lamp’s reflector with your hands to
prevent the reflector from being contaminated.
