Important Safety Instructions
Follow these safety instructions when setting up and using your Epson MovieMate:
■
Except as specifically explained in this User’s Guide, do not attempt to service this product
yourself. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.
■
Never open any cover on the projector, except the lamp and filter covers. Dangerous
electrical voltages inside the projector can severely injure you.
■
The projector’s accessories come packaged in plastic bags. Keep plastic bags away from

■
Never look into the projector lens when the lamp is turned on; the bright light can
damage your eyes. Never let children or pets look into the lens when it is on.
■
Don’t place the projector on an unstable cart, stand, or table. Also, don’t stand on the
projector or place heavy objects on it.
■
Never push objects through the cabinet slots or spill liquid into the projector.
■
Do not use the projector near water, or sources of heat or vibration. Do not expose it to
rain or moisture.
■
Do not move the unit during playback.
■
Do not touch the projection lens with bare hands.
■
Use a damp cloth for cleaning. Do not use liquid or aerosol cleaners. Do not use solvents
such as alcohol, thinner, or benzine. Unplug the projector from the wall outlet before
cleaning.
■
Do not use the projector in places where flammable gases or explosive gases may be
present in the atmosphere.

■
The lamp is fragile and can easily break. If the lamp breaks, handle the projector with
extreme care to avoid injury from broken glass, and contact Epson to replace the lamp.
■
Do not use the lamp after the lamp replacement period has elapsed, because the
possibility of lamp breakage increases. When the lamp replacement message appears,
replace the lamp with a new one as soon as possible.
Welcome
11
12
■
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.
■
The lamp in this projector is under high internal pressure and may make a loud noise if it
breaks. If it breaks, ventilate the room to prevent mercury gas inside the lamp from being
inhaled or coming into contact with the eyes or mouth.
■
Do not bring your face close to the projector while it is in use, to prevent burns from hot
air leaving the exhaust vent, and to prevent inhaling or contact with the gases inside the
lamp if it breaks.
■
Do not place anything that can become warped or damaged by heat near the air exhaust
vents.
■
Do not place the projector near a flame.
■
Before you move the projector, make sure it is turned off, the plug is disconnected from
the outlet, and all cables are disconnected.
■
If the lamp breaks and gas from the lamp or fragments of broken glass are inhaled or get
into the eyes or mouth, or if any other ill effects are noticed, immediately seek medical
advice.
■
Do not disassemble or damage the lamp or subject it to any impacts.
■
Use the type of power source indicated on the projector. If you’re not sure of the power
available, consult the power company.
■
If you use the projector in a country other than where you purchased it, use the correct
power cord for that country.
■
Place the projector near a wall outlet where the plug can be easily unplugged.
■
Don’t place the projector where the cord can be walked on. This may result in fraying or
damage to the plug.

choking hazards and can be very dangerous if swallowed. If they are swallowed, seek
medical attention immediately.
■
Replace the batteries as soon as they run out.
■
Do not expose batteries to heat or flame and do not put them in water.
■
Dispose of used batteries according to local regulations.
■
Remove the batteries if you won’t be using the projector for an extended period.
■
Insert batteries so that the polarities are correct, and do not mix new and old batteries.
■
Do not use batteries other than those specified in this User’s Guide.
■
Don’t block the slots and openings in the projector case. They provide ventilation and
prevent the projector from overheating. Don’t operate the projector on a sofa, rug, or
other soft surface, or in a closed-in cabinet unless proper ventilation is provided.
■
Don’t leave the projector or remote control on top of heat-producing equipment or in a
heated place, such as a car.
■
Don’t use the projector outside of the required temperature range (41 to 95 °F [5 to 35
°C]). Doing so may cause an unstable display and could lead to projector damage.
■
Don’t store the projector outside of the required temperature range (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.
■
Make sure there is at least 8 inches of space between the exhaust ventilation slots and the
wall or other object.
Welcome
13
■
Make sure there is at least 4 inches of space between the intake ventilation slots and the
wall or other object.
■
Avoid projecting a high-contrast still image for more than 15 minutes to prevent burn-in.
If this happens, project a bright screen until the burn-in disappears (from 30 to 60
minutes). If you can’t eliminate the burn-in, contact Epson as described on page 69.
■
Do not turn the volume too high, especially when using headphones. Listening to high
volume sounds over an extended period can damage your hearing. Sudden high volume
can also damage the speakers.

Choosing a Location
You can use your Epson MovieMate just about anywhere—in the living room, bedroom, or
even outside. You can use it with an optional floor-, wall-, or ceiling-mounted screen, or
simply project on a flat white wall.
The following pictures show three different setups:
Front
Back
Floor
To project onto a wall, choose a flat white wall with a smooth surface. When you find a
suitable wall for projection, you may want to consider coating the area with projection paint
to enhance the image quality. For details, see “Wall and Projection Screen
Recommendations” on page 21.
16
Unpacking and Setting Up
Your projector should be directly in front of the screen or
wall, facing straight ahead (at a 90-degree angle to the
surface).
If the image is too low, you can raise it by extending the feet
and tilting the projector up. This causes the image to lose its
rectangular shape. You can adjust the shape using the
keystone buttons on the remote control or the Visual Setup
menu. See page 24 for instructions.
The farther you place the projector from the screen or wall,
the larger the image will be.
The following tables list the distances required for various image sizes (measured diagonally).

Wall and Projection Screen Recommendations
To optimize viewing of projector images, follow the recommendations in this section.
Viewing on a Wall
You can easily view Epson MovieMate’s high quality images on any flat white wall in your
home. There is no cost or setup involved, and you can project and resize the image up to any
size that fits on your wall. To enhance the image quality even further, you may want to paint
the wall with projection paint that is specially designed for optimum reflectivity and contrast
in your viewing environment.
Viewing on a Projection Screen
If you don’t have a suitable wall in your home or want a professional quality viewing
experience, you can use a projection screen. These screens have optical coatings with special
reflective properties that enhance brightness, contrast, and sharpness as well as providing a
frame around the image.
Projection screens are available in many shapes, sizes, mounting styles, colors, and surface
qualities, as described below.
Considering Screen Shape and Size
In a home theater setting—for watching DVD movies, HDTV broadcasts, or other
widescreen content—the best screen shape ratio is 16:9, where the width is almost twice the
height. Most DVD movies and HDTV broadcasts will fill the screen vertically and
horizontally for maximum impact. The most popular sizes are from 45 to 100 inches (114 to
254 cm) diagonal.
Playing Movies
21
Standard screens have a 4:3 shape ratio, which is better suited for viewing computer
presentations and standard TV broadcasts. Watching DVD movies or HDTV broadcasts on a
4:3 ratio screen limits the image width and leaves unused screen area above and below the
image. Available screen sizes vary, but are usually up to 60 inches (152 cm) diagonal (the same
height as an 80-inch [203-cm] diagonal 16:9 screen).
Considering Screen Mounting Style
Most screens are either floor-standing, wall-mounted, or ceiling-mounted. Consider these
characteristics as you choose which type would be best for your viewing environment:
Screen mounting style
Characteristics
Floor-standing screens
Portable
Can be used in multiple locations
Can be stored out of the way
Some may also be wall-mountable
Wall-mounted screens
Typically permanently installed
Can be partially hidden out of the way
Some may be disguised as artwork
Ceiling-mounted screens
Typically permanently installed
Can be partially hidden out of the way
Some may be recessed into the ceiling and hidden completely
Can be manually or electronically dropped and raised
Outdoor screens
Resistant to outdoor environmental factors
Can be used on patios, and around pools and landscaping
Usually made of inflatable plastic or vinyl
Considering Color and Surface Quality
For home theater settings, screens come in white or shades of gray. Gray screens (sometimes
called high contrast screens) increase the natural contrast of images projected in rooms with
ambient light by absorbing the room light and preserving the darker blacks. If you have a
dedicated home theater room with dark walls, ceiling, floor, and furniture, a gray screen may
not provide better contrast than a white screen. However, if you usually project images in a
typical living room or family room with some reflected light, a gray screen will provide better
contrast and a truer viewing experience.
22
Playing Movies
Screen surface quality can also affect the reflectivity of light in your projected image. Screen
reflective properties are measured as “gain” rates, with 1.0 gain as the reflectivity of a white
board. Highly reflective screen surfaces (above 1.0 gain) create a brighter image, but the
brightness may not be uniform enough for a dedicated home theater environment and the
colors may appear to shift from different viewing angles.
In a home theater room with darkened surroundings and controlled lighting, a screen surface
with less than 1.0 gain is best. For rooms where you cannot control the light or will always
have ambient light, you may want to select a screen surface with more than 1.0 gain to
compensate for the additional brightness.
Starting a DVD
Insert your DVD into the slot.
Warning: Close the lens cover before inserting or ejecting a disc. When the picture appears, do not
look into the lens, and do not allow children or pets to look into the lens. The bright light may affect
your vision.
After about 30 seconds, the projector warms up and the picture comes on.
Playing Movies
23
Adjusting the Picture
After you set up and start the projector, you may need to make certain adjustments.
24
■
If the image is too low, you can extend the feet (by pressing the foot adjustment levers)
and tilt the projector up.
■
If the image is horizontally tilted, you can turn the feet to level it.
■
Your projector automatically detects the vertical tilt and corrects the image shape. If you
find that the image is not rectangular, however, use the Keystone buttons on the remote
control or the Keystone setting in the Signal menu (see page 52) to adjust the image
shape.
Playing Movies
■
Use the Zoom setting in the Signal menu to adjust the image size. See page 52.
■
Rotate the focus ring to sharpen the picture.
■
To enlarge or reduce the aspect ratio of the picture, press the
button on the remote
control to select Normal, Full, or Zoom (if available for the video source you’re using).

filter, replace the lamp, and store or transport the projector.
Protecting Epson MovieMate
The projector is designed for use virtually anywhere at home. However, the projector and its
accessories should not be exposed to water, smoke, direct heat or sunlight, or left outside for
long periods of time. As with other electronic equipment, please avoid exposure of the
projector to moisture, dust, smoke, and other environmental factors which may result in
damage to internal electronics over time. See the warranty brochure included with your
projector for additional details on the use of the projector.
Cleaning the Lens
Clean the lens whenever you notice dirt or dust on the surface.
To remove dirt or smears, use lens-cleaning paper. If necessary, moisten a soft cloth with lens
cleaner and gently wipe the lens surface.
Caution: Never rub the lens with abrasive materials.
54
Caring for Your Epson MovieMate
Cleaning the Case
Before you clean the case, turn off the projector and unplug the power cord.
■
To remove dirt or dust, wipe the case with a soft, dry, lint-free cloth.
■
To remove stubborn dirt or stains, moisten a soft cloth with water and a neutral
detergent. Wring the cloth as dry as possible, then wipe the case.
Caution: Never use wax, alcohol, benzene, thinner, or other chemical detergents. These can
damage the case. Never spray cleaners directly on the projector.
Cleaning and Replacing the Air Filter
Clean the air filter and air intake vent when dust builds up or when you see the following
message:
The projector is overheating. Make sure nothing is blocking the air vents, and
clean or replace the air filter.
Dust clogs prevent proper ventilation, which can cause overheating and damage the projector.
1. Press the
button on the control panel or the
button on the remote control to turn
the projector off. When you hear a short beep, disconnect the power cable.
2. Use a small vacuum cleaner designed for computers and other office equipment to clean
the filter, as shown.
If you cannot clean the removable filter or it is broken, you need to replace it.
You can purchase a new filter (part # V13H134A26) from an Epson authorized reseller.
To find the nearest reseller, call 800-GO-EPSON (800-463-7766). Or you can purchase
online at www.epsonstore.com (U.S. sales) or www.epson.ca (Canadian sales).

■
Make sure all discs are ejected.
■
Close the lens cover and retract the feet.
■
Remove the batteries from the remote control.

Caring for Your Epson MovieMate
Transporting Epson MovieMate
Note: Epson shall not be liable for any damages incurred during transportation.
Your projector contains many glass and precision parts. If you need to transport it, follow
these guidelines to prevent damage:
■
When shipping the projector for repairs, use the original packaging material if possible. If
you do not have the original packaging, use equivalent materials, placing plenty of
cushioning around the projector. Be sure the carrier is capable of transporting fragile
equipment and is aware that the projector is fragile.
■
If you move the projector from a cold environment into a warm room, condensation
(moisture) may form internally or on the lens surface. To avoid damage that might be
caused by condensation, wait approximately an hour before using the projector. If
condensation forms, turn off the power, then wait an hour or two before use.
■
When you are hand-carrying the projector, make sure all discs are ejected, the lens cover
is closed, and the feet are retracted.
■
Lift the projector by its handle as shown:
