Important Safety Information
WARNING: Never look into the projector lens when the lamp is turned on; the bright light can damage your eyes.
Never let children look into the lens when it is on. Never open any cover on the projector, except the lamp and
filter covers. Dangerous electrical voltages inside the projector can severely injure you. Except as specifically
explained in this User’s Guide, do not attempt to service this product yourself. Refer all servicing to qualified service
personnel.
WARNING: The projector and its accessories come packaged in plastic bags. Keep plastic bags away from small
children to avoid any risk of suffocation.
Caution: When you replace the lamp, never touch the new lamp with your bare hands; the invisible residue left by
the oil on your hands may shorten the lamp life. Use a cloth or glove to handle the new lamp.

Displaying and Adjusting
the Image
W
hether you’re presenting from a computer or video equipment,
you need to follow some basic steps to display your image on the
screen.
Follow the guidelines in this chapter for:
■
Positioning the projector
■
Turning the projector on and off
■
Selecting the image source
■
Troubleshooting display problems
■
Adjusting the image
15
Positioning the Projector
note
You can mount the projector
on the ceiling, or place it
behind a translucent screen
for rear projection. See
page 105 for details.
If the projector isn’t already installed in the room you’re using, you’ll
probably want to place it on a table in front of the screen. This lets
you stand in the front of the room, face the audience, and remain
close enough to the equipment to be able to control it. Try to leave as
much space as possible between the projector and the screen to get a
good-size image.
Use the figure below to help you determine placement. Image size
increases with distance, but can vary depending on how you position
the zoom ring and whether you’ve adjusted the image with other
settings.
TBD
Also keep these considerations in mind:
16
■
Place the projector on a sturdy, level surface.
■
Make sure there is plenty of space for ventilation around and
under the projector. Do not set the projector on top of anything
that could block the vents.
■
Make sure the projector is within 10 feet of a grounded electrical
outlet or extension cord.
Displaying and Adjusting the Image
Ideally, you should place the projector directly in front of the center of
the screen, facing it toward the screen squarely. The base of the lens
should be at about the level of the bottom of the screen.
note
After positioning the
projector, you may want to
connect a Kensington
MicroSaver® anti-theft
device to the lock port on the
projector. You can purchase
this from Epson; see
page 13.
Projector
Screen
If you place the projector below screen level, you’ll have to tilt it up by
extending the front adjustable foot. This causes the image to become
“keystone” shaped, but you can correct the distortion by pressing the
buttons on the projector. See page 25 for detailed information about
correcting the image shape.
For instructions on installing the projector in a permanent location,
such as a theater or conference room, see page 105.
Turning the Projector On and Off
Make sure your projector and any computer or video equipment are
connected as described on page 39. Turn on your connected
equipment before starting the projector so it can automatically detect
and display the image source. If you turn on the projector first, or
have multiple pieces of connected equipment, you may have to select
the image source manually (see page 20).
Displaying and Adjusting the Image 17
Turning On the Projector
note
You can set the projector to
automatically turn off the
lamp and enter “sleep mode”
when it has not received any
signals or the A/V Mute slide
remains closed for a period
of time. This conserves
electricity, cools the
projector, and extends the
life of the lamp. To enable
sleep mode, see page 75.
Follow these steps to turn on the projector:
1. Open the A/V Mute slide (lens cover).
2. Plug one end of the power cable into the projector, and the other
end into an electrical outlet.
The P power light turns orange.

Displaying and Adjusting the Image
3. Press the Ppower button on the remote control or on top of the
projector.
The projector beeps once and the Ppower light flashes green as
the projector warms up, then an image begins to appear. When
the Ppower light stops flashing and remains green, the projector
is ready for use.
4. If you are prompted to enter a password, see page 69.
warning
Never look into the lens
when the lamp is on. This
can damage your eyes, and is
especially dangerous for
children.
Using the Direct Power On Function
The Direct Power On function enables faster setup. The projector will
start up automatically when you plug it in; you won’t have to press the
Ppower button.
Follow these steps to enable Direct Power On:
note
1. Press the Menu button on the remote control and select the
Extended menu.
2. Choose Operation and press Enter.
3. Choose Direct Power On and press Enter.
If a power outage occurs
when Direct Power On is
enabled and the projector is
plugged in, the projector will
restart when the power is
restored.
4. Highlight On and press Enter.
5. Press Esc or Menu to exit. The setting will take effect the next
time you plug in the projector.
Displaying and Adjusting the Image 19
Shutting Down the Projector
note
Lamp life results will vary
depending on mode selected,
environmental conditions,
and usage.
Turn off this product when
not in use to prolong the life
of the projector.
This projector incorporates Instant Off technology. To turn it off, you
can press its Ppower button as described below, unplug it, or turn off
a power switch that supplies power to the projector. You don’t have to
wait for the projector to cool off first.
1. To turn off the projector, press the
Ppower button on the remote
control or projector.
You see a confirmation message.
(If you don’t want to turn it off, press any other button.)
2. Press the Ppower button again. The projection lamp turns off
and you can unplug the power cord.
If you want to turn the projector on again, make sure the orange
Ppower light is not flashing, then press the Ppower button.
3. If you extended the adjustable front foot, press up on the foot
release lever to retract it.
4. Close the A/V Mute slide.
Selecting the Image Source
note
To focus and adjust the
image, see page 23. If a
projected image fails to
appear, see page 21 for help.
20
Selecting the image source lets you switch between images input from
different pieces of connected equipment (such as a computer or DVD
player).
If you don’t see the image you want, press the Search button on the
remote control or the Source Search button on the projector until
you see the image you want to project.
Displaying and Adjusting the Image
You can also use the Source buttons on the remote control to switch
between devices connected to the ports identified on each button.
(The LAN button does not work with the PowerLite 84.)
Troubleshooting Display Problems
Follow these guidelines if you’re having trouble displaying an image.
You Can’t Project an Image
If you don’t see the image you are trying to project, try the following:
■
Make sure the cables are connected correctly, as described
beginning on page 39.
■
Make sure the Ppower light is green and not flashing and the
A/V Mute slide is open.
■
If you’ve connected more than one computer and/or video source,
you may need to press the Source Search button on the
projector’s control panel or Search button on the remote control
to select the correct source. (Allow a few seconds for the projector
to sync up after pressing the button.)
■
If you’re using a PC notebook, press the function key on your
keyboard that lets you display on an external monitor. It may be
labeled CRT/LCD or have an icon such as
. You may have to
hold down the Fn key while pressing it. Allow a few seconds for
the projector to sync up after changing the setting.
■
See page 94 for more solutions.
Displaying and Adjusting the Image 21
The Projector and Notebook Don’t Display the
Same Image
If you’re projecting from a notebook, and you can’t see your image on
the projection screen and on your computer at the same time, follow
these guidelines.
If you’re using a PC notebook:
■
On most systems, there’s a function key that lets you toggle
between the LCD screen and the projector, or display on both at
the same time. It may be labeled CRT/LCD or have an icon such as
. You may have to hold down the Fn key while pressing it.
Allow a few seconds for the projector to sync up after changing
the setting.
■
If the function key doesn’t permit you to display simultaneously
on both screens, you should check your monitor settings to make
sure both the LCD screen and the external monitor port are
enabled.
From the Control Panel, open the Display utility. In the Display
Properties dialog box, click the Settings tab, then click
Advanced. The method for adjusting the settings varies by
brand; you may need to click a Monitor tab, then make sure the
external Monitor port is set as your primary display and/or
enabled. See your computer’s documentation or online help for
details.
If you’re using Mac OS X:
You may need to set up your system to display on the projector screen
as well as the LCD screen. Make sure your projector is connected and
follow these steps:
1. From the Apple® menu, select System Preferences, then select
Displays.
2. Click Detect Displays.
3. Make sure the VGA Display or Color LCD dialog box is selected.

Projector Installation
T
his appendix provides guidelines on installing the projector in a
permanent location, such as a classroom or conference room.
The projector can be installed for four different viewing setups: front
projection, ceiling projection, rear projection onto a semi-transparent
screen, or rear/ceiling projection, as shown:
Front projection
Ceiling projection
Rear projection
Rear/ceiling projection
To project from overhead, you’ll need the optional ceiling mounting
hardware; see page 13 for ordering information. You’ll also need to
select Front/Ceiling or Rear/Ceiling as the Projection option in the
projector’s Extended menu to flip the image upside-down. To project
from the rear, onto a semi-transparent screen, select Rear or
Rear/Ceiling (see page 74).
105
If you’re mounting the projector on the ceiling and you place it above
screen level, you’ll have to tilt the projector down to position the
image on the screen. This causes the image to lose its square shape.
You can correct the distortion using the Keystone function in the
projector’s menu system (see page 67).
If you place the projector so that the base of the lens is level with the
bottom of the screen, the image should be square and you won’t have
to adjust it. If you place the lens lower than the bottom of the screen,
you’ll have to tilt the projector upward if you want to fill the whole
screen with the image.

space between the wall and the air exhaust vent.
■
Do not operate the projector in a closed-in cabinet unless proper
ventilation is provided.
■
If you are using two or more projectors side-by-side, leave at least 2 feet
(60 cm) of space between the projectors to allow for proper ventilation.
■
You may need to clean the air filter and vent. A clogged air filter or vent
can block ventilation needed to cool the projector.
■
Do not store the projector outdoors for an extended length of time.
■
Do not use the projector outside the required temperature range of
41 to 95 °F (5 to 35 °C). Doing so may cause an unstable display and
could lead to projector damage.
■
Do not store the projector outside the required temperature range of
14 to 140 °F (–10 to 60 °C) or in direct sunlight for long periods of
time. Doing so may cause damage to the case.
■
Do not touch the plug during an electrical storm. Otherwise, you may
receive an electric shock.
■
Unplug the projector when it will not be used for extended periods.
■
Unplug the projector from the wall outlet and refer servicing to qualified
service personnel under the following conditions: If it does not operate
normally when you follow the operating instructions, or exhibits a
distinct change in performance; If smoke, strange odors, or strange
noises come from the projector; If the power cord or plug is damaged or
frayed; If liquid or foreign objects get inside the projector, or if it has
been exposed to rain or water; If it has been dropped or the housing has
been damaged.
■
Except as specifically explained in this User’s Guide, do not attempt to
service this product yourself. Refer all servicing to qualified personnel.
Opening or removing covers may expose you to dangerous voltages and
other hazards.
■
Never open any covers on the projector except as specifically explained
in this User’s Guide. Never attempt to disassemble or modify the
projector. Refer all repairs to qualified service personnel.
■
Use the type of power source indicated on the projector. Use of a
different power source may result in fire or electric shock. If you are not
sure of the power available, consult your dealer or power company.
■
If you use the projector in a country other than where you purchased it,
use the correct power cord for that country.
■
Do not overload wall outlets, extension cords, or power strips. Do not
insert the plug into a dusty outlet. This can cause fire or electric shock.
■
Take the following precautions when handling the plug: Do not hold
the plug with wet hands. Do not insert the plug into an outlet with dust
present. Insert the plug firmly into the outlet. Do not pull the power
cord when disconnecting the plug; always be sure to hold the plug when
disconnecting it. Failure to comply with these precautions could result
in fire or electric shock.
■
Do not place the projector where the cord can be walked on.
■
The lamp(s) in this product contain mercury. Please consult your
state and local regulations regarding disposal or recycling. Do not put in
the trash.
■
Do not place anything that can become warped or damaged by heat near
the exhaust vents. Do not bring your hands or face close to the vents
while projection is in progress.
■
Before you move the projector, make sure its power is turned off, the
plug is disconnected from the outlet, and all cables are disconnected.
■
Never try to remove the lamp immediately after use because it will be
extremely hot. Before removing the lamp, turn off the power and wait at
least an hour to allow the lamp to cool completely.
■
Do not place the source of an open flame, such as a lit candle, on or near
the projector.
■
Do not modify the power cord. Do not place heavy objects on top of the
power cord or bend, twist, or pull it excessively. Keep the power cord
away from hot electrical appliances.
■
If the lamp breaks, ventilate the room to prevent gases contained in the
lamp from being inhaled or coming in contact with the eyes or mouth.
■
If the projector is mounted overhead and the lamp breaks, be careful to
prevent pieces of glass from falling into your eyes when you open the
lamp cover.
