INTRODUCTION
The Boxlight CD-40m™ is specifically designed for the mobile
presenter. It packs SVGA graphics with 16.7 million colors into a
small, 6.8 pound package. It generates crisp, clear images using
Digital Light Processing™ (DLP) technology. The projector is
easy to connect, easy to use, and easy to maintain.
Image Resolution
The SVGA resolution of the CD-40m’s projected image is
800x600. Screen resolutions between 800x600 and 1024x768 are
compressed to 800x600. The projector cannot compress screen
resolutions above 1024x768. If your computer’s screen resolution
is higher than 1024x768, reset it to a lower resolution before you
connect the projector.
NOTE: The projector automatically expands 640x480 images to
800x600. You can display these
images at 640x480 by turning off
the Auto Resize feature. See “Auto
Resize” on page 21 for more infor-

Usage Guidelines
• Do not look directly into the projection lens when the projector
is turned on. The bright light may harm your eyes.
• Do not block the grills on the projector. Restricting the air flow
can cause it to overheat and turn off. If this happens, you must
wait a minute before attempting to turn it back on.
• Handle the projector as you would any product with glass
components. Be especially careful not to drop it.
• Avoid leaving the projector in direct sunlight or extreme cold
for extended periods of time. If this happens, allow it to reach
room temperature before use.
• This projector is not intended for use in mainframe computer
rooms as defined in the Standard for the Protection of Electronic Computer/Data Processing Equipment, ANSI/NFPA 75.
• Transport the projector in a vendor-approved hard or soft case.
Call Boxlight to order.

Connecting a Video Player
1 If your video player uses a round, one-prong composite video
connector, you’ll need only the A/V cable that shipped with
the projector.
• If your video player uses a round, four-prong S-video con-
nector, you’ll need an S-video cable in addition to the A/V
cable. The S-video cable is sold separately. (See “Optional
Accessories” on page 40.)
2 Plug the A/V cable’s yellow connector into the “video-out”
port on your video player (Figure 7). This port may be labeled
“To Monitor.”
• If you’re using an S-video cable, connect it to the “s-video
out” connector on the video player (Figure 8).
3 Plug the other yellow connector into the composite connector
on the back of the projector.
• If you’re using S-video, plug the other end of the cable into
the “s-video” connector on the projector (Figure 8).

The projector is compatible with these major broadcast video
standards: NTSC, NTSC 4.43, PAL, PAL-M, PAL-N, and SECAM.
It automatically adjusts to optimize its performance for the
incoming video. The input signals for SECAM, PAL-M, and
PAL-N video are similar to other video signals and cannot be
automatically detected, therefore they must be chosen manually.
See “Video Standard” on page 23 for details.
Powering up the Projector and Adjusting the Image
1 Remove the lens cap.
2 Plug the power cord into the side of the projector, then plug it
into your electrical outlet. A surge-protected power strip is
recommended.
NOTE: Always use the power cord
that shipped with the projector.
3 Turn on the projector by pressing the “I” side of the power
switch (see Figure 2 on page 3).
• The startup screen displays and the Power LED on top of
the projector lights up (Figure 11 on page 15).
4 If you connected a video player, turn it on.
• The video image should display on the projection screen. If
a computer source is active, press the source button on the
keypad (page 15) to display your video image. You can
select a default source to determine which source the projector examines first during power-up for active video; see
“Default Source” on page 24.
• Use the volume buttons to adjust the volume.
5 Turn on your computer.
• The computer image should display on the projection
screen. (If a video source is active, press the source button to
display your computer’s image.)
• If necessary, make adjustments to the image from the pro-
jector’s on-screen menus. To open the menus, press the
menu button on the keypad, then select the Display or
Image sub-menu. For more information about the menus,
see page 17.
NOTE: With some computers,
the order in which you power up
the equipment is very important.
Most computers should be turned
on last, after all other peripherals
have been turned on. Refer to your
computer’s documentation to
determine the correct order.

Turning Off the Projector
If you want to turn off the projector for a short period of time,
press the standby button on the keypad. This blanks the screen for
fifteen minutes, but keeps the projector running. (You can change
the amount of time the projector stays in standby mode; see
“Standby Time” on page 23 for details.) After 15 minutes, the
lamp goes out (the projector keeps running). To exit standby
mode, press the standby button again. (It may take several seconds for the projection lamp to reach full power and project the
image again.)
To completely power off the projector, press the “O” side of the
power switch on the side of the projector. If you want to turn the
projector back on immediately, you must allow about a minute
for the lamp to cool. The lamp won’t light if it’s too hot.
CAUTION: When you
disconnect the projector after you
have switched it off, always
remove the power cord from the
electrical outlet first, then remove
it from the projector.
12
USING THE PROJECTOR
This section describes how to use and make adjustments to the
projector. It also provides a reference to the keypad buttons and
the options available from the on-screen menus.
Basic Image Adjustment
1 Make sure you have powered up your equipment in the right
order (page 11).
2 If the image doesn’t display completely, adjust the height of
the projector (page 14) or center the image by adjusting its
horizontal or vertical position (page 22). Be sure the projector
is at a 90 degree angle to the screen.
3 If the image is out of focus, rotate the focus ring (Figure 9).
4 If the image appears to shimmer or if it has blurry vertical
bars after you have adjusted the focus, turn Auto Image
(page 21) off and then back on to reset the automatic sync and
tracking. If that doesn’t clear up the image, turn Auto Image
off and adjust the sync (page 21) and/or the tracking
(page 22) manually.
5 If the colors don’t look right, adjust the brightness (page 18).

Using the On-Screen Menus
The projector has six drop-down menus that allow you to make
image adjustments and change a variety of settings. Most of these
adjustments aren’t available directly from the keypad.
To open the on-screen menus, press the menu button on the
keypad. This changes the volume, source, and standby buttons
on the keypad to menu navigation buttons (and illuminates the
keypad green). Press the corresponding buttons to move the
cursor up, down, left, or right. To select a menu, move the cursor
left and right to highlight the menu you want. The drop-down
menu appears.
NOTE: Some menu items may be
grayed out at certain times. This
indicates the item is not applicable
to your setup (for example, video
standards do not apply to computer sources) or the item is not
enabled until another selection is
made (for example, Manual Tracking is not available until Auto
Image is turned off).
FIGURE 12
Drop-down menu
To change a menu setting, use the up and down arrow keys on
the keypad to move the cursor up and down to the item you want
to change (the selected item is highlighted red), then use the left
and right mouse buttons (not the left and right arrow buttons) to
adjust a setting. Some submenus, such as Brightness, consist of a
slider bar you use to increase or decrease a value; some submenus, such as Standby Time, consist of options you scroll
through to select the desired one. All changes are saved when
you close the menus.
To access another menu, use the left and right arrow buttons to
move left or right to another menu.

Video Standard
When Video standard is set to Auto, the projector attempts to
pick the video standard (NTSC, NTSC 4.43, PAL, PAL-M, PAL-N,
or SECAM) automatically based on the input signal it receives.
(The video standard options may vary depending on your region
of the world.) The input signals for SECAM, PAL-M, and PAL-N
video cannot be automatically detected, therefore they must be
chosen manually. If the projector is unable to detect the correct
standard, the colors might not look right or the image might
appear “torn.” If this happens, manually select a standard by
clicking either mouse button and cycling through the standards.
NOTE: If you already know the
video standard used in your geographical area, it’s often best to
manually select it.
Standby Time
This option lets you select how long the lamp stays on and the
blank screen is displayed when the projector enters standby
mode before the projector turns off. Select among 1, 5, 10, and 15
minutes and 1 and 2 hours by clicking either mouse button and
cycling through the options.
Ceiling Projection
When you turn Ceiling Projection on, the projector turns the
image upside down for ceiling-mounted projection. Highlight
Ceiling Projection, then click either mouse button to turn this feature on and off.
NOTE: To order the Ceiling
Mount, refer to “Optional Accessories” on page 40.

projector automatically finds the active source, checking the
default source first. Highlight Auto Source Select and click either
mouse button to turn this feature on and off.
Plug and Play
This setting toggles between On and Off. When it is On, most
new computers will automatically recognize the projector, then
set the monitor resolution and refresh rate accordingly. You need
to set the Plug and Play setting to Off for the projector to display
properly on some older computers. The Plug and Play setting
does not affect video images.
If the projector ’s display constantly changes between the computer image and the message, “Perfecting the image”, you may
need to set Plug and Play to Off.
Display Messages
This setting toggles between On and Off. When this feature is On,
status messages such as “No signal detected” or “Standby
Active” appear in the lower-right corner of the screen. Click
either mouse button to turn this feature off and not see status
messages.

MAINTENANCE & TROUBLESHOOTING
This section describes how to:
•clean the lens
•replace the projection lamp
•use the Kensington lock feature
•troubleshoot the projector
Cleaning the Lens
Follow these steps to clean the projection lens:
1 Apply a non-abrasive camera lens cleaner to a soft, dry cloth.
• Avoid using an excessive amount of cleaner.
• Abrasive cleaners, solvents or other harsh chemicals might
scratch the lens.
2 Lightly wipe the cleaning cloth over the lens.
3 If you don’t intend to use the projector immediately, replace
the lens cap.
Replacing the Projection Lamp
The lamp hour counter in the Status menu counts the number of
hours the lamp has been in use. The projector uses a metal halide
bulb. These types of bulbs deteriorate over time. Replace the
lamp when the brightness is no longer acceptable. You can order
new lamp modules from Boxlight. See “Accessories” on page 39
for information.
Follow these steps to replace the projection lamp:
1 Turn off the projector and unplug the power cord.
WARNING: To avoid burns,
allow the projector to cool for at
least 30 minutes before you open
the lamp module door. Never
extract the lamp module while the
lamp is operating.
2 Wait 30 minutes to allow it to cool thoroughly.
3 Place the projector on its side, then insert a small screwdriver
or other flat object into the tabs on the lamp module door (Figure 19).

Troubleshooting
Problem: Nothing on projection screen
•Make sure that the power cord is properly connected to a functional AC electrical outlet. Make sure that the power cord is
also properly connected to the projector.
•If the projector is plugged into a power strip, make sure the
power strip is turned on.
•Make sure you have removed the lens cap on the projection
lens at the front of the projector.
•Make sure the projector is switched on.
•Check the projector’s lamp to ensure that it is securely con-
nected in the lamp module. See “Replacing the Projection
Lamp” on page 29.
•Make sure that the cables do not have any bent pins.
Problem: Color or text not being projected
•You might need to adjust the brightness up or down until the
text is visible. Refer to “Brightness” on page 18 for more information.
Problem: The screen resolution is not right
•Make sure the computer’s video card is set for a resolution of
no greater than 1024x768. A resolution of 800x600 yields the
highest quality image.
Problem: Image isn’t centered on the screen
•Reposition the image. Refer to “Horizontal position” on
page 22 and “Vertical position” on page 22.
•Be sure the projector is at a 90 degree angle to the screen.
Problem: Only the start-up screen displays
•Verify that the cables are connected correctly. See page 7
through page 9 for connection procedures.
•Verify that the proper input source is connected. See “Source”
on page 15.

Using Video Mirroring with a PowerBook Computer
When you turn video mirroring (called SimulScan in newer PowerBooks-see below) on, the projector displays the same information that appears on your PowerBook’s built-in screen. When
video mirroring is off, the projector acts like a separate display.
To turn on video mirroring for the first time:
1 Open the Monitors control panel; click on Monitor 2.
2 Set the number of colors you want.
3 Open the Control Strip; click on the monitor icon.
4 Select “Turn Video Mirroring On.”
Now you can turn video mirroring on and off from the Control
Strip without having to open the Monitors control panel again.
When using video mirroring and high color graphics such as
slide shows, the projected image occasionally might turn black
and white. If this happens, perform the following steps:
1 Turn off video mirroring.
2 Open the Monitors control panel.
3 Move the white menu bar to Monitor 2 to set the projector as
the primary monitor.
4 Restart the PowerBook.
Using SimulScan
Some newer PowerBooks display images on an external monitor
or projector differently than previous ones. When using
SimulScan, the projector displays the same information that
appears on your PowerBook
To select SimulScan:
1 Open the Control Panel, then double-click Monitors and
Sound.
2 In the Resolution list, choose the SimulScan mode, then click
OK.
3 If this changes your display settings, a dialog box appears.
Click OK to confirm the change.
