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.

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 selecting the image source
■
Troubleshooting display problems
■
Adjusting the image
■
Turning off the projector

Canada User's Guide.book Page 16 Friday, September 3, 2004 3:49 PM
Positioning the Projector
note
You can mount the projector
on the ceiling, or place it
behind a translucent screen
for rear projection. See
page 173 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, as shown.
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
33.1 to 39.7 ft
6.6 to 7.9 ft
3.2 to 3.9 ft
Distance from screen
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 under the projector.
■
Make sure the projector is within 10 feet of a grounded electrical
outlet or extension cord.
Displaying and Adjusting the Image
Canada User's Guide.book Page 17 Friday, September 3, 2004 3:49 PM
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

Configuring the Connection
note
Make sure you’ve installed
the NS Connection software
as described on page 169.
To connect to the projector
over a wireless network, your
computer must be running
Windows 98, Me, 2000, or
XP. Your Macintosh must
be running OS X 10.2.4 or
later. See page 169 for
complete system
requirements for projecting
wirelessly.
Access Point mode
(infrastructure mode) is
required to achieve transfer
speeds up to 54MB/sec on an
802.11g network. Ad Hoc
mode (computer-tocomputer mode) limits
network connections to
11MB/sec. This is a
standard specification of
802.11g networking.
You can use NS Connection to connect to the projector and send
images wirelessly in two modes: Ad Hoc mode or Access Point mode.
■
Ad Hoc mode (computer-to-computer mode) lets you connect
just one computer to the projector at a time; it’s easy to set up,
and the only equipment you need is a computer with a wireless
(802.11g or 802.11b) network card or adapter, or a Macintosh
with an AirPort® or AirPort Extreme card.
■
Access Point mode (infrastructure mode) lets multiple computers
access the projector at the same time and easily trade off control
over the projector. To use Access Point mode, you need a wireless
(802.11g or 802.11b) access point or an AirPort Extreme (or
AirPort) base station, and one or more computers with wireless
network cards or adapters.
Follow the instructions below for the mode you want to use.

Creating a Scenario
note
To create a scenario, you
need a memory card and a
card reader on your
computer. Also make sure
you’ve installed the EMP
SlideMaker software
(available for Windows
only), as described on
page 171.
Depending on the type of
card you have, you may also
need an adapter to use it
with the projector. See
page 101.
A scenario is a combination of images, movies, and/or audio files that
you can present from a memory card. The easiest way to create a
scenario is to drag and drop a PowerPoint file on the
EMP
SlideMaker2 icon on your desktop. This automatically converts the
file to a scenario that you can save to the memory card. Use this
method if you have an existing PowerPoint presentation that you want
to transfer to the projector.
If you prefer, you can create a scenario from scratch by combining a
selection of PowerPoint slides, other graphics, and even movies (see
page 94).
Converting a PowerPoint File to a Scenario
Follow these steps to convert a PowerPoint file to a scenario. Once the
scenario is created, you can set up transitions as described on page 98.
1. Make sure the EMP SlideMaker program is closed.
2. Locate the PowerPoint file you want to use in My Computer or
Windows Explorer.
3. Drag the file icon on top of the
your desktop.

4. You see a message that some transitions are not supported.
Click OK.
EMP SlideMaker 2 starts and your PowerPoint slides open
one-by-one as they are converted. Do not interrupt this process or
your PowerPoint file won’t be completely converted.

6. At this point, you can insert additional images or create transition
effects between slides. (See “Building a Scenario from Different
Files” on page 96 and “Setting Up Transitions” on page 98 for
details.)
If there are slides in the scenario that you don’t want to use,
right-click those cells and select Inactivate.
7. Choose Save from the File menu.
EMP SlideMaker 2 automatically names your scenario
SCNnnnn.sit (where nnnn is an automatically assigned
number). It also creates a folder for it within your \Program
Files\EMP SlideMaker2 folder. However, you can choose Save
As from the File menu and enter a new scenario name and folder
location if you want.
Once your scenario is saved, you can transfer it to the memory card in
your computer’s PC card (PCMCIA) slot (see page 101).
note
You have to save the
scenario on your computer’s
hard drive before
transferring it. Don’t save it
directly to the memory card,
or it may not play correctly.

Managing Projectors
T
he software included with your projector lets you monitor and
control your projectors from a remote computer:
■
Use EMP Monitor (available for Windows only) to see your
projectors’ status, switch image sources, and control basic settings.
■
Use the mail notification function to receive e-mail alerts about
possible problems.
■
Use a network management utility running SNMP, such as
HP OpenView, to manage your facility’s equipment from a
pre-existing system (requires an optional plug-in available on
request from Epson).
You can also use NS Connection to register up to 16 projectors as a

IP address are less than 100,
the first digit of the octet
should be zero (0).
You can register projectors as a group if you want to provide quick and
easy access to other computers. You can also export or import group
information as a file to another computer. Projectors must be
connected to the network in Access Point mode, and must be on the
same network segment as the computer used to create the group, or
the computers that import or export group information.

screen, or rear/ceiling projection, as shown:
Front projection
Ceiling mounting
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 of 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 120).
173
Canada User's Guide.book Page 174 Friday, September 3, 2004 3:49 PM
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 113).
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.

Notices
This appendix includes safety instructions and other important information
about your Epson PowerLite projector.
Important Safety Instructions
Follow these safety instructions when setting up and using the projector:
■
Do not place the projector on an unstable cart, stand, or table.
■
Do not use the projector near water or sources of heat.
■
Use the type of power source indicated on the projector. If you are not
sure of the power available, consult your dealer or power company.
■
Place the projector near a wall outlet where the plug can be easily
unplugged.
Placez l’appareil près d’une prise de courant où la fiche peut être débranchée
facilement.
■
Insert the projector’s three-wire grounding-type plug into a properly
grounded outlet. If you have a two-prong outlet, contact an electrician
to replace it. Do not hold the plug with wet hands.
■
Take the following precautions for the plug. Failure to comply with
these precautions could result in sparks or fire: Do not insert the plug
into an outlet with dust present. Insert the plug firmly into the outlet.
■
Do not overload wall outlets, extension cords, or integral convenience
receptacles. This can cause fire or electric shock.
■
Do not place the projector where the cord can be walked on. This may
result in fraying or damage to the plug.
■
Unplug the projector from the wall outlet before cleaning. Use a damp
cloth for cleaning. Do not use liquid or aerosol cleaners.
■
Do not block the slots and openings in the projector case. They provide
ventilation and prevent the projector from overheating. Do not operate
the projector on a sofa, rug, or other soft surface, or in a closed-in
cabinet unless proper ventilation is provided.
179
Canada User's Guide.book Page 180 Friday, September 3, 2004 3:49 PM
■
Never push objects of any kind through the cabinet slots. Never spill
liquid of any kind into the projector.
■
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.
■
Unplug the projector from the wall outlet and refer servicing to qualified
service personnel under the following conditions: When the power cord
or plug is damaged or frayed. If liquid has been spilled into the
projector, or if it has been exposed to rain or water. If it does not operate
normally when you follow the operating instructions, or if it exhibits a
distinct change in performance, indicating a need for service. If it has
been dropped or the housing has been damaged.
■
This product includes a lamp component that contains mercury (Hg).
Please consult your state and local regulations regarding proper disposal
and do not put in the trash.
■
Unplug the projector during lightning storms or when it will not be used
for extended periods.
■
Do not place the projector and/or remote control on top of
heat-producing equipment or in a hot location.
■
If you use the projector in a country other than where you purchased it,
use the correct power cord for that country.
■
Do not stand on the projector or place heavy objects on it.
■
Do not use the projector outside of 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 of 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.

Remote Control Information
You can operate the projector by remote control via a line-of-sight infrared
(IR) receiver at the front and rear of the projector. The projector may not
respond to remote control commands under the following conditions:
■
There is an object between the remote control IR emitter and the IR
receiver on the projector.
■
Ambient light is too bright.
■
Certain types of fluorescent lighting are used.
■
A strong light source shines into the IR receiver.
■
Other equipment that emits infrared energy, such as a radiant room
heater, is in the room.
These conditions commonly cause problems for most infrared-controlled
equipment. Try the following:
■
The remote control’s batteries may be low on power; replace them.
■
Dim the ambient lighting and/or turn off any fluorescent lights.
■
Close any window coverings and/or move the projector out of direct
sunlight.
■
Turn off other equipment that emits infrared energy.

Warranty
Epson America, Inc. Limited Warranty
Basic Two-Year Warranty and 90-Day Lamp Warranty
What Is Covered: Epson America, Inc. (“Epson”) warrants to the original
retail purchaser of the Epson product enclosed with this limited warranty
statement that the product, if purchased new and operated in the United
States or Canada, conforms to the manufacturer’s specifications and will be
free from defects in workmanship and materials for a period of two (2) years
from the date of original purchase (except that the warranty period is 90 days
for projector lamps). For warranty service, you must provide proof of the date
of original purchase.
What Epson Will Do To Correct Problems: If you elect carry-in warranty
service, please bring the product securely packaged in its original container or
an equivalent, along with proof of the date of original purchase, to your
Epson Dealer or Epson Customer Care Center. Epson will, at its option,
repair or replace on an exchange basis the defective unit, without charge for
parts or labor. When warranty service involves the exchange of the product or
of a part, the item replaced becomes Epson property. The exchanged product
or part may be new or previously refurbished to the Epson standard of
quality, and at Epson’s option, the replacement may be another model of like
kind and quality. Epson’s liability for replacement of the covered product will
not exceed the original retail selling price of the covered product. Exchange
or replacement products or parts assume the remaining warranty period of
the product covered by this limited warranty. However, each replacement
lamp carries the limited 90-day warranty stated above.
What This Warranty Does Not Cover: This warranty does not apply to
refurbished or reconditioned products. This warranty covers only normal
consumer use in the United States and Canada. 24-hour-per-day use causes
unusual strain and is not considered normal use. This warranty does not
cover consumables (e.g., fuses), other than lamps. This warranty is not
transferable. Epson is not responsible for warranty service should the Epson
label or logo or the rating label or serial number be removed or should the
product fail to be properly maintained or fail to function properly as a result
of misuse, abuse, improper installation, neglect, improper shipping, damage
caused by disasters such as fire, flood, and lightning, improper electrical
current, software problems, interaction with non-Epson products, or service
other than by an Epson Authorized Servicer. Postage, insurance, or shipping
costs incurred in presenting your Epson product for carry-in warranty service
are your responsibility. If a claimed defect cannot be identified or reproduced
in service, you will be held responsible for costs incurred.
