Important safety instructions
Your projector is designed and tested to meet the latest standards for safety of information
technology equipment. However, to ensure safe use of this product, it is important that you
follow the instructions mentioned in this manual and marked on the product.
Safety Instructions
1.
Please read this manual before you
operate your projector. Save it for
future reference.
2.
Do not look straight at the projector
lens during operation. The intense
light beam may damage your eyes.
3.
Refer servicing to qualified service
personnel.
4.
Always open the lens shutter or
remove the lens cap when the
projector lamp is on.
5.
In some countries, the line voltage is
NOT stable. This projector is
designed to operate safely within a
mains voltage between 100 to 240
volts AC, but could fail if power cuts
or surges of ±10 volts occur. In areas
where the mains voltage may
fluctuate or cut out, it is
recommended that you connect
your projector through a power
stabilizer, surge protector or
uninterruptible power supply
(UPS).
6.
Do not block the projection lens with
any objects when the projector is
under operation as this could cause
the objects to become heated and
deformed or even cause a fire. To
temporarily turn off the lamp, press
BLANK on the projector or remote
control.

7.
The lamp becomes extremely hot
during operation. Allow the
projector to cool for approximately
45 minutes prior to removing the
lamp assembly for replacement.
10.
Do not place this product on an
unstable cart, stand, or table. The
product may fall, sustaining serious
damage.
8.
Do not operate lamps beyond the
rated lamp life. Excessive operation
of lamps beyond the rated life could
cause them to break on rare
occasions.
11.
Do not attempt to disassemble this
projector. There are dangerous high
voltages inside which may cause
death if you should come into
contact with live parts. The only
user serviceable part is the lamp
which has its own removable cover.
Under no circumstances should you
ever undo or remove any other
covers. Refer servicing only to
suitably qualified professional
service personnel.
9.
Never replace the lamp assembly or
any electronic components unless
the projector is unplugged.
12.
When the projector is under
operation, you may sense some
heated air and odor from its
ventilation grill. It is a normal
phenomenon and not a product
defect.

Safety Instructions (Continued)
13.
Do not place this projector in any of
the following environments.
14.
Do not block the ventilation holes.
- Do not place this projector on a blanket,
bedding or any other soft surface.
- Do not cover this projector with a cloth or
any other item.
- Do not place inflammables near the
projector.
- Space that is poorly ventilated or
confined. Allow at least 50 cm clearance
from walls and free flow of air around the
projector.
- Locations where temperatures may
become excessively high, such as the
inside of a car with all windows rolled up.
- Locations where excessive humidity,
dust, or cigarette smoke may contaminate
optical components, shortening the
projector's life span and darkening the
image.
15.
If the ventilation holes are seriously
obstructed, overheating inside the
projector may result in a fire.
Always place the projector on a level,
horizontal surface during operation.
- Do not use if tilted at an angle of more
than 10 degrees left to right, nor at angle
of more than 15 degrees front to back.
Using the projector when it is not fully
horizontal may cause a malfunction of, or
damage to, the lamp.

any objects upon it. Besides probable
physical damage to the projector,
doing so may result in accidents and
possible injury.
18.
Do not place liquids near or on the
projector. Liquids spilled into the
projector may cause it to fail. If the
projector does become wet, disconnect
it from the power supply's wall socket
and call BenQ to have the projector
serviced.

Important safety instructions
Ceiling mounting the projector
We want you to have a pleasant
experience using your BenQ projector,
so we need to bring this safety matter
to your attention to prevent possible
damage to person and property.
If you intend to mount your projector
on the ceiling, we strongly recommend
that you use a proper fitting BenQ
projector ceiling mount kit and that
you ensure it is securely and safely
installed.
If you use a non-BenQ brand projector
ceiling mount kit, there is a safety risk
that the projector may fall from the
ceiling due to an improper attachment
through the use of the wrong gauge or
length screws.
You can purchase a BenQ projector
ceiling mount kit from the place you
purchased your BenQ projector. BenQ
recommends that you also purchase a
separate Kensington lock compatible
security cable and attach it securely to
both the Kensington lock slot on the
projector and the base of the ceiling
mount bracket. This will perform the
secondary role of restraining the
projector should its attachment to the
mounting bracket become loose.

Positioning your projector
Choosing a location
Your room layout or personal preference will dictate which installation location you select.
Take into consideration the size and position of your screen, the location of a suitable power
outlet, as well as the location and distance between the projector and the rest of your
equipment.
Your projector is designed to be installed in one of four possible installation locations:
1.
Front Table
Select this location with the projector placed on a table in
front of the screen. This is the most common way to
position the projector for quick setup and portability.
2.
Front Ceiling
Select this location with the projector suspended upsidedown from the ceiling in front of the screen.
Purchase the BenQ Projector Ceiling Mounting Kit from
your dealer to mount your projector on the ceiling.
Set Front Ceiling in the SYSTEM SETUP: Basic >
Projector Position menu after you turn the projector on.
3.
Rear Table
Select this location with the projector placed on a table
behind the screen.
Note that a special rear projection screen is required.
Set Rear Table in the SYSTEM SETUP: Basic >
Projector Position menu after you turn the projector on.
4.
Rear Ceiling
Select this location with the projector suspended upsidedown from the ceiling behind the screen.
Note that a special rear projection screen and the BenQ
Projector Ceiling Mounting Kit are required for this
installation location.
Set Rear Ceiling in the SYSTEM SETUP: Basic >

Obtaining a preferred projected image size
The distance from the projector lens to the screen, the zoom setting (if available), and the
video format each factors in the projected image size.
4:3 is the native aspect ratio of MP724 and MP727. 16:10 is the native aspect ratio of
MP735. To be able to project a complete 16:9 (widescreen) aspect ratio image on MP724 or
MP727, the projector can resize and scale a widescreen image to the projector's native
aspect width. This will result in a proportionally smaller height equivalent to 75% of the
projector's native aspect height.
4:3 aspect image in a 4:3
aspect display area
16:9 aspect image scaled to a 4:3 aspect
display area
Thus, a 16:9 aspect image will not utilize 25% of the height of a 4:3 aspect image displayed
by this projector. This will be seen as darkened (unlit) bars along the top and bottom
(vertical 12.5% height respectively) of the 4:3 projection display area whenever displaying
a scaled 16:9 aspect image in the vertical center of the 4:3 projection display area.
The projector should always be placed horizontally level (like flat on a table), and
positioned directly perpendicular (90° right-angle square) to the horizontal center of the
screen. This prevents image distortion caused by angled projections (or projecting onto
angled surfaces).
The modern digital projector does not project directly forward (like older style reel-to-reel
film projectors did). Instead, digital projectors are designed to project at a slightly upward
angle above the horizontal plane of the projector. This is so that they can be readily placed
on a table and will project forward and upwards onto a screen positioned so that the bottom
edge of the screen is above the level of the table (and everyone in the room can see the
screen).
If the projector is mounted on a ceiling, it must be mounted upside-down so that it projects
at a slightly downward angle.
You can see from the diagram on page 17, that this type of projection causes the bottom
edge of the projected image to be vertically offset from the horizontal plane of the projector.
When ceiling mounted, this refers to the top edge of the projected image.
If the projector is positioned further away from the screen, the projected image size
increases, and the vertical offset also increases proportionately.
When determining the position of the screen and projector, you will need to account for
both the projected image size and the vertical offset dimension, which are directly
proportional to the projection distance.
BenQ has provided a table of screen sizes to assist you in determining the ideal location for
your projector. Refer to "MP724/727 projection dimensions" on page 17/18 or "MP735
projection dimensions" on page 19 depending on the projector you are using. There are two
dimensions to consider, the perpendicular horizontal distance from the center of the screen
(projection distance), and the vertical offset height of the projector from the horizontal edge
of the screen (offset).

How to determine the position of the projector for a
given screen size
1.
2.
Select your screen size.
Refer to the table and find the closest match to your screen size in the left columns
labelled "4:3 screen". Using this value, look across this row to the right to find the
corresponding average distance from screen value in the column labelled "Average".
This is the projection distance.
3.
On that same row, look across to the right column and make note of the "Vertical
offset in mm" value. This will determine the final vertical offset placement of the
projector in relation to the edge of the screen.
4.
The recommended position for the projector is aligned perpendicular to the horizontal
center of the screen, at the distance from the screen determined in step 2 above, and
offset by the value determined in step 3 above.
For example (MP724), if you are using a 120-inch screen, the average projection distance is
4999 mm and with a vertical offset of 256 mm.
If you place the projector in a different position (to that recommended), you will have to tilt
it down or up to center the image on the screen. In these situations, some image distortion
will occur. Use the Keystone function to correct the distortion. See "Correcting keystone"
on page 35 for details.
How to determine the recommended screen size for a
given distance
This method can be used for situations where you have purchased this projector and would
like to know what screen size will fit in your room.
The maximum screen size is limited by the physical space available in your room.
1.
Measure the distance between the projector and where you want to position the
screen. This is the projection distance.
2.
Refer to the table and find the closest match to your measurement in the average
distance from screen column labelled "Average". If the min and max values are
available on the table, check that your measured distance is between the min and max
distances listed on either side of the average distance value.
3.
Using this value, look across that row to the left to find the corresponding screen
diagonal listed in that row. That is the projected image size of the projector at that
projection distance.
4.
On that same row, look across to the right column and make note of the "Vertical
offset in mm" value. This will determine the final placement of the screen in relation
to the horizontal plane of the projector.
For example (MP724), if your measured projection distance was 4.5 m (4500 mm), the
closest match in the "Average" column is 4499 mm. Looking across this row shows that a
108-inch screen is required.

Connecting Video source devices
You can connect your projector to various Video source devices that provide any one of the
following output sockets:
• HDMI
• DVI-I
• Component Video
• S-Video
• Video (composite)
You need only connect the projector to a Video source device using just one of the above
connecting methods, however each provides a different level of video quality. The method
you choose will most likely depend upon the availability of matching terminals on both the
projector and the Video source device as described below:
Best video quality
The best available video connection method is HDMI. If your source device is equipped
with a HDMI socket, you can enjoy uncompressed digital video quality.
See "Connecting HDMI source devices" on page 23 for how to connect the projector to a
HDMI source device and other details.
If no HDMI source is available, the next best video signal is DVI-I. If your source device is
equipped with a DVI-I socket, you can enjoy digital video quality.
See "Connecting DVI-I source devices" on page 24 for how to connect the projector to a
DVI-I source device and other details.
If no DVI-I source is available, the next best video signal is Component Video (not to be
confused with composite Video). Digital TV tuners and DVD players output Component
Video natively, so if available on your devices, they should be your connection method of
choice in preference to S-Video or (composite) Video.
See "Connecting Component Video source devices" on page 25 for how to connect the
projector to a Component Video device.
Better video quality
The S-Video method provides a better quality analog video than standard composite Video.
If you have both composite Video and S-Video output terminals on your Video source
device, you should elect to use the S-Video option.
Least video quality
Composite Video is an analog video and will result in a perfectly acceptable, but less than
optimal result from your projector, being the least video quality of the available methods
described here.
See "Connecting S-Video source devices" on page 26 for how to connect the projector to an
S-Video or Video device.
Connecting Audio
The projector has built-in mono speakers which are designed to provide basic audio
functionality accompanying data presentations for business purposes only. They are not
designed for, nor intended for stereo audio reproduction use as might be expected in home
theater or home cinema applications. Any stereo audio input (if provided), is mixed into a
common mono audio output through the projector speakers.
22
Connection
English
Connecting HDMI source devices
The projector provides a HDMI input socket that allows you to connect it to a HDMI source
device like a DVD player, a DTV tuner or a display.
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) supports uncompressed video data
transmission between compatible devices like DTV tuners, DVD players and displays over
a single cable. It provides pure digital viewing and listening experience.
Examine your Video source device to determine if it has a set of unused HDMI output
sockets available:
•
•
If so, you can continue with this procedure.
If not, you will need to reassess which method you can use to connect to the device.
To connect the projector to an HDMI source device:
1.
Take a HDMI cable and connect one end to the HDMI output socket of the HDMI
source device. Connect the other end of the cable to the HDMI signal input socket on
the projector. Once connected, the audio can be controlled by the projector On-Screen
Display (OSD) menus. See "Audio Settings" on page 51 for details.

Selecting the aspect ratio
The 'aspect ratio' is the ratio of the image width to the image height. For MP724 and
MP727, the default aspect ratio is 4:3. And for MP735, the default aspect ration is 16:10.
Most analog TV and computers are in 4:3 ratio, and digital TV and DVDs are usually in
16:9 ratio.
With the advent of digital signal processing, digital display devices like this projector can
dynamically stretch and scale the image output to a different aspect than that of the image
input signal.

3D Color Management
English
In most installation situations, color management will not be necessary, such as in
classroom, meeting room, or lounge room situations where lights remain on, or where
building external windows allow daylight into the room.
Only in permanent installations with controlled lighting levels such as boardrooms, lecture
theaters, or home theaters, should color management be considered. Color management
provides fine color control adjustment to allow for more accurate color reproduction, should
you require it.
Proper color management can only be achieved under controlled and reproducible viewing
conditions. You will need to use a colorimeter (color light meter), and provide a set of
suitable source images to measure color reproduction. These tools are not provided with the
projector, however, your projector supplier should be able to provide you with suitable
guidance, or even an experienced professional installer.
The Color Management provides six sets (RGBCMY) of colors to be adjusted. When you
select each color, you can independently adjust its range and saturation according to your
preference.
If you have purchased a test disc which contains various color test patterns and can be used
to test the color presentation on monitors, TVs, projectors, etc. You can project any image
from the disc on the screen and enter the 3D Color Management menu to make
adjustments.
To adjust the settings:

Operation under "High Altitude Mode" may cause a
higher decibel operating noise level because of increased fan speed necessary to improve
overall system cooling and performance.
If you use this projector under other extreme conditions excluding the above, it may display
auto shut-down symptoms, which is designed to protect your projector from over-heating.
In cases like this, you should switch to High Altitude mode to solve these symptoms.
However, this is not to state that this projector can operate under any and all harsh or
extreme conditions.

Maintenance
Care of the projector
Your projector needs little maintenance. The only thing you need to do on a regular basis is
to keep the lens clean.
Never remove any parts of the projector except the lamp. Contact your dealer if other parts
need replacing.
Cleaning the lens
Clean the lens whenever you notice dirt or dust on the surface.
•
•
Use a canister of compressed air to remove dust.
If there is dirt or smears, use lens-cleaning paper or moisten a soft cloth with lens
cleaner and gently wipe the lens surface.
Never rub the lens with abrasive materials.
Cleaning the projector case
Before you clean the case, turn the projector off using the proper shutdown procedure as
described in "Shutting down the projector" on page 48 and unplug the power cord.
•
•
To remove dirt or dust, wipe the case with a soft, lint-free cloth.
To remove stubborn dirt or stains, moisten a soft cloth with water and a neutral pH
detergent. Then wipe the case.
Never use wax, alcohol, benzene, thinner or other chemical detergents. These can damage the
case.
Storing the projector
If you need to store the projector for an extended time, please follow the instructions below:

Lamp information
Getting to know the lamp hour
When the projector is in operation, the duration (in hours) of lamp usage is automatically
calculated by the built-in timer. The method of calculating the equivalent lamp hour is as
follows:
Total (equivalent) lamp hour
= 1 (hours used in Economic mode) + 3/2 (hours used in normal mode)
See "Setting Lamp mode as Economic" below for more information on Economic mode.
To obtain the lamp hour information:
1.
Press Menu/Exit and then press / until the SYSTEM SETUP: Advanced menu
is highlighted.
2.
Press to highlight Lamp Settings and press MODE/ENTER. The Lamp Settings
page displays.
3.
You will see the Equivalent lamp hour information displaying on the menu.
4.
To leave the menu, press Menu/Exit.
You can also get the lamp hour information on the INFORMATION menu.
Extending lamp life
The projection lamp is a consumable item that normally can last up to 2000-3000 hours with
proper usage. To keep the lamp life as long as possible, you can do the following settings
via the OSD menu.
Setting Lamp mode as Economic
Using Economic mode reduces system noise and power consumption by 20%. If the
Economic mode is selected, the light output will be reduced and result in darker projected
pictures.
Setting the projector in Economic mode also extends the lamp operation life. To set
Economic mode, go into the SYSTEM SETUP: Advanced > Lamp Settings > Lamp
mode menu and press / .
Setting Auto Power Off
This function allows the projector to turn off automatically if no input source is detected
after a set period of time to prevent unnecessary waste of lamp life.
To set Auto Power Off, go into the SYSTEM SETUP: Basic > Auto Power Off menu and
press / . The time period can be set from 5 to 30 minutes in 5-minute increments. If the
preset time lengths are not suitable for your presentation, select Disable. The projector will
not automatically shut down in a certain time period.
