Important Operating Considerations
Do not place the projector on a tablecloth or other soft covering that may
block the vents. Vents are placed along the left and right sides of the
CD-850m, as well as across the front of the projector. Do not use a nonapproved ceiling mount. In the unlikely event of the lamp rupturing, discard any edible items placed in the surrounding area and thoroughly clean
the area along the sides and in the front of the projector.
Do not place objects in the areas along the side and in the front of the projector

Shutting down the projector
Troubleshooting your setup
The projector automatically displays a black screen after no active source is
detected for 30 minutes. This black screen helps preserve the life of the projector. The image returns when an active source is detected or a remote or
keypad button is pressed.
If your image appears correctly on the screen, skip to the next section
(page 23). If it does not, troubleshoot the setup.
The LED on top of the projector’s keypad indicates the state of the projector
and can help you troubleshoot.
Screen Save
You can make the black screen appear after five minutes by turning on
Screen Save in the Settings>System menu. See page 32. There are six time
options for the Screen Save feature. They range from five minutes to 30 minutes with five minute intervals.

Troubleshooting the remote
•
The remote also has a power button to turn the projector on and off (see
page 14 for shutdown info), volume and mute buttons to control the sound,
a backlight button to light the remote’s buttons in the dark, and video and
computer buttons to switch between sources.
Make sure the batteries are installed in the proper orientation and are
not dead.
•
Make sure you’re pointing the remote at the projector, not the computer, and are within the remote range of 30 feet (9.14m).
•
If you are trying to control your computer’s mouse, make sure the USB
cable is connected. If using a USB cable, make sure the correct drivers
are installed.
Two presentation-specific features are also provided. Use the blank button
to display a blank screen instead of the current slide (you can choose which
color is displayed, see page 32); use the effect button to invoke a user-definable action, such as freeze or zoom (see page 32 to learn to program this button).

Optimizing computer images
Presentation features
After your computer is connected properly and the computer’s image is on
the screen, you can optimize the image using the onscreen menus. For general information on using the menus, see page 27.
Several features are provided to make giving presentation easier. The following is an overview, details are found in the menu section on page 27.
•
Adjust the Keystone, Contrast, or Brightness in the Picture menu.
•
Change the Aspect Ratio. Aspect Ratio is the ratio of the image width to
image height. TV screens are usually 1.33:1, also known as 4:3. HDTV
and most DVDs are 1.78:1, or 16:9. Choose the option that best fits your
input source. See page 28 for details.
•
The remote’s Effect button allows you to assign various features to the
key. The default effect is About, which displays information about the
projector and current source. You can select from Blank, Mute, Aspect
Ratio, Source, Auto Image, Freeze, Zoom, and About. See page 32 for
details.
•
The Freeze effect allows you to freeze the displayed image. This is useful if you want to make changes on your computer without your audience seeing them.
•
Adjust the Color Space or Color Temperature in the Advanced menu.
•
Adjust the Phase, Tracking, or Horizontal or Vertical position in the
Advanced menu.
•
•
Once you have optimized the image for a particular source, you can
save the settings using Presets. This allows you to quickly recall these
settings later. See page 29.

Presets: The provided Presets optimize the projector for displaying computer presentations, photographs, film images, and video images. (Film
input is material originally captured on a film camera, like a movie; video
input is material originally captured on a video camera, like a TV show or
sporting event.) You can use the preset as a starting point, then further customize the settings for each source. The settings you customize are saved in
the preset for each source. To restore the factory default settings, choose Factory Reset in the Settings>Service menu.

Save User Presets
There are also three user-definable presets. To set a preset for the current

image. Select a sharpness setting.
Sharpness
Color Space: This option applies to computer and component video
sources (it won’t appear in the menu for S-video or composite video
sources). It allows you to select a color space that has been specifically tuned
for the video input. When Auto is selected, the projector automatically
determines the standard. To choose a different setting, turn off Auto, then
choose RGB for computer sources, choose either SMPTE240, REC709, or
REC601 for component video sources.
Color Temperature: changes the intensity of the colors. Select a listed
value, or select User and individually adjust the intensity of the red, green,
and blue colors.
Video Standard: When it is set to Auto, the projector attempts to pick the
video standard automatically based on the input signal it receives. (The
video standard options may vary depending on your region of the world.) If
the projector is unable to detect the correct standard, the colors may not
look right or the image may appear “torn.” If this happens, manually select
a video standard by selecting NTSC, PAL, or SECAM from the Video Standard menu.

checks first for active video during power-up.
Sources: allows you to assign a particular input to a specific source key as
an optional full-featured remote. Also allows selection of a default Powerup Source and enables or disables Autosource. When Autosource is not
checked, the projector defaults to the source selected in Power-up Source. If
no source is found, a blank screen displays. When Autosource is checked,
Power-up Source determines which source the projector defaults to at
power-up. If no signal is present, the projector checks the sources in order
until a source is found or until power down.

System>Rear: reverses the image so you can project from behind a translucent screen.
Ceiling: turns the image upside down for ceiling-mounted projection.
NOTE: It is recommended that all final image adjustments in Ceiling mode
are made once the unit has fully warmed up.

Auto Power: When Auto Power is checked, the projector automatically
goes into the startup state after the projector is powered on. This allows control of ceiling mounted projectors with a wall power switch.
Display Messages: displays status messages (such as “Searching” or
“Mute”) in the lower-left corner of the screen.
Low Power: toggles between on and off. Turn it on to lower the light output
of the lamp. This also lowers the fan speed, making the projector quieter.
Power Save: automatically turns the lamp off after no signals are detected
for 20 minutes. After 10 additional minutes with no signal, the projector
powers down. If an active signal is received before the projector powers
down, the image will be displayed.

•
To avoid burns, allow the projector to cool for at least 60 minutes before
you replace the lamp.
•
Do not drop the lamp module. The glass may shatter and cause injury.

Be extremely careful when removing the lamp housing. In the unlikely
event that the lamp ruptures, small glass fragments may be generated.
The lamp module is designed to contain most of these fragments, but
use caution when removing it.
5 Carefully remove the lamp module by grasping and lifting the metal
bail wire. Dispose of the lamp in an environmentally proper manner.
6 Install the new lamp module, making sure that it is properly seated.
7 Tighten the single screw.
