Opening the Lens Cover
Projector Placement
You can place the projector on almost any flat surface to project an image.
You can also install the projector in a ceiling mount if you want to use it in a fixed location.
Keep these considerations in mind as you select a projector location:
• Place the projector on a sturdy, level surface or install it using a compatible mount.
• Leave plenty of space around and under the projector for ventilation, and do not place it on top of or
next to anything that could block the vents.
• Position the projector within reach of a grounded electrical outlet or extension cord.

Projection Distance
The distance at which you place the projector from the screen determines the approximate size of the
image. The image size increases the farther the projector is from the screen, but can vary depending on
the zoom factor, aspect ratio, and other settings.
Use the tables here to determine approximately how far to place the projector from the screen based on
the size of the projected image. (Conversion figures may have been rounded up or down.) You can also
use the Projection Distance Calculator here (U.S.), here (Canada), or here (Caribbean).

Connecting to an HDMI Video Source
If your video source has an HDMI port, you can connect it to the projector using an optional HDMI cable.
The HDMI connection provides the best image quality.
25
1. Connect the HDMI cable to your video source's HDMI output port.
2. Connect the other end to one of the projector's HDMI ports.
Note: The projector converts the digital audio signal sent from your video source into a mono analog
signal for the internal speaker or a stereo analog signal if you are connecting to external speakers.
Note: When an audio/video source that meets the HDMI CEC standard is connected to the projector's
HDMI port, you can use the projector's remote control to control certain features of the linked device by
pressing the HDMI Link button on the remote control and setting HDMI Link to On.
Note: If you have problems hearing audio through the HDMI connection, make sure the Audio Out
Device setting in the Extended menu is set correctly.
Parent topic: Connecting to Video Sources
Connecting to an MHL-Compatible Device
If you have an MHL-compatible smartphone or tablet, you can connect it to the projector using either an
MHL cable or an HDMI cable with a device-compatible MHL adapter. If you have a device with a built-in
MHL connector, plug it directly into the HDMI 1/MHL port.
Note: Some connected devices may not charge when using an MHL adapter.
26
1. Connect the MHL cable or adapter to your device's Micro-USB port.
2. If you are using an MHL adapter, connect it to an MHL-compatible HDMI cable.
3. Connect the other end of the cable to the projector's HDMI 1/MHL port.
Note: The projector converts the digital audio signal sent from your video source into a mono analog
signal for the internal speaker or a stereo analog signal if you are connecting to external speakers.

Cleaning the Lens
Clean the projector's lens periodically, or whenever you notice dust or smudges on the surface.
• To remove dust or smudges, gently wipe the lens with lens-cleaning paper.
108
• To remove stubborn smudges, moisten a soft, lint-free cloth with lens cleaner and gently wipe the
lens. Do not spray any liquid directly on the lens.
Warning: Do not use a lens cleaner that contains flammable gas. The high heat generated by the
projector lamp may cause a fire.
Caution: Do not use glass cleaner or any harsh materials to clean the lens and do not subject the lens
to any impacts; you may damage it. Do not use canned air, or the gases may leave a residue. Avoid
touching the lens with your bare hands to prevent fingerprints on or damage to the lens surface.
Parent topic: Projector Maintenance
Cleaning the 3D Glasses
To remove dust, dirt, smudges, or fingerprints from the glasses, use a soft, dry, lint-free cloth.

case. These can damage the case. Do not use canned air, or the gases may leave a residue.
Parent topic: Projector Maintenance
Air Filter and Vent Maintenance
Regular filter maintenance is important to maintaining your projector. Your Epson projector is designed
with an easily accessible, user-replaceable filter to protect your projector and make regular maintenance
simple. Filter maintenance intervals will depend on the environment.
If regular maintenance is not performed, your Epson projector will notify you when the temperature
inside the projector has reached a high level. Do not wait until this warning appears to maintain your
projector filter as prolonged exposure to high temperatures may reduce the life of your projector or lamp.
Damage due to the failure to properly maintain the projector or its filter may not be covered by the
projector or lamp Limited Warranties.

Parent topic: Notices
145
Important Safety Instructions
Follow these safety instructions when setting up and using the projector:
• Do not look into the lens when the projector is on. The bright light can damage your eyes. Avoid
standing in front of the projector so the bright light does not shine into your eyes.
• Do not place the projector on an unstable cart, stand, or table.
• Do not operate the projector on its side, or while tilted to one side. Do not tilt the projector more than
11° forward or back.
• If the projector is mounted on a ceiling or wall, it should be installed by qualified technicians using
mounting hardware designed for use with this projector.
• When installing or adjusting a ceiling or wall mount, do not use adhesives to prevent the screws from
loosening and do not use oils or lubricants. This may cause the projector case to crack and the
projector to fall from its ceiling mount. This could cause serious injury to anyone under the mount and
could damage the projector.
• Do not use the projector near water, sources of heat, high-voltage electrical wires, or sources of
magnetic fields.
• Use the type of power source indicated on the projector. Use of a different power source may result in
fire or electric shock. 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.
• Take the following precautions when handling the plug: Do not hold the plug with wet hands. Do not
insert the plug into a dusty outlet. Insert the plug firmly into the outlet. Do not pull the power cord when
disconnecting the plug; always be sure to hold the plug when disconnecting it. Do not overload wall
outlets, extension cords, or power strips. Failure to comply with these precautions could result in 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 and allow to cool before cleaning. Use a dry cloth (or, for
stubborn dirt or stains, a moist cloth that has been wrung dry) for cleaning. Do not use liquid or aerosol
cleaners, any sprays containing flammable gas, or solvents such as alcohol, paint thinner, or benzine.
• 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 set it
on top of loose papers. Do not cover the projector with a blanket, curtain, or tablecloth. If you are
setting up the projector near a wall, leave at least 7.9 inches (20 cm) of space between the wall and
the projector.
• Do not operate the projector in a closed-in cabinet unless proper ventilation is provided.
146
• Never allow objects of any kind to enter any openings in the projector. Do not leave objects, especially
flammable objects, near the projector. Never spill liquid of any kind into the projector.
• If you are using two or more projectors side-by-side, leave at least 2 feet (60 cm) of space between the
projectors to allow for proper ventilation.
• You may need to clean the air filter and vent. A clogged air filter or vent can block ventilation needed
to cool the projector. Do not use canned air, or the gases may leave a residue.
• Do not store the projector outdoors for an extended length of time.
• Except as specifically explained in this manual, 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.
• Never open any covers on the projector except as specifically explained in this manual. Never attempt
to disassemble or modify the projector. Refer all repairs to qualified service personnel.
• Unplug the projector from the wall outlet and refer servicing to qualified service personnel under the
following conditions: if it does not operate normally when you follow the operating instructions, or
exhibits a distinct change in performance; if smoke, strange odors, or strange noises come from the
projector; if the power cord or plug is damaged or frayed; if liquid or foreign objects get inside the
projector, or if it has been exposed to rain or water; if it has been dropped or the housing has been
damaged.
• Do not touch the plug during an electrical storm. Otherwise, you may receive an electric shock.
• Unplug the projector when it will not be used for extended periods.
• Do not use the projector where it may be exposed to rain, water, or excessive humidity.
• Do not use or store the projector where it may be exposed to smoke, steam, corrosive gases,
excessive dust, vibration, or shock.
• Do not use the projector where flammable or explosive gases may be present.
• Do not use or store the projector or remote control in a hot location, such as near a heater, in direct
sunlight, or in a closed vehicle.
• 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 below:
41 to 95 °F (5 to 35 °C) at an altitude of 7500 feet (2286 m) or less, or 41 to 86 °F (5 to 30 °C) at a
higher altitude
147
Doing so may cause an unstable display and could lead to projector damage. Do not use or store the
projector where it may be exposed to sudden changes in temperature.
• 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.
• Do not place anything that can become warped or damaged by heat near the exhaust vents. Do not
bring your hands or face close to the vents while projection is in progress. Do not bring your face close
to the projector while it is in use.
• Before you move the projector, make sure its power is turned off, the plug is disconnected from the
outlet, and all cables are disconnected.
• Never try to remove the lamp immediately after use because it will be extremely hot. Before removing
the lamp, turn off the power and wait at least an hour to allow the lamp to cool completely.
• Do not disassemble the lamp or subject it to impacts.
• Do not place the source of an open flame, such as a lit candle, on or near the projector.
• Do not block the lens during projection using a book or any object other than the lens cover. This could
damage the projector or cause a fire.
• Do not modify the power cord. Do not place heavy objects on top of the power cord or bend, twist, or
pull it excessively. Keep the power cord away from hot electrical appliances.
• If the lamp breaks, ventilate the room to prevent gases contained in the lamp from being inhaled or
coming in contact with your eyes or mouth. If you do inhale gases or gases come in contact with your
eyes or mouth, seek medical advice immediately.
• If the projector is mounted overhead and the lamp breaks, be careful to prevent pieces of glass from
falling into your eyes or mouth when you open the lamp cover. If pieces of glass do get into your eyes
or mouth, seek medical advice immediately.
• Always lower the volume before turning off the projector. Turning on the projector with the volume too
high can damage your ears.
Note:
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.

CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY CLASS OR
REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION FEDERAL OR STATE
CLASS ACTIONS, OR CLASS ARBITRATIONS. CLASS ACTION LAWSUITS, CLASS-WIDE
ARBITRATIONS, PRIVATE ATTORNEY-GENERAL ACTIONS, AND ANY OTHER PROCEEDING
WHERE SOMEONE ACTS IN A REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY ARE NOT ALLOWED.
ACCORDINGLY, UNDER THE ARBITRATION PROCEDURES OUTLINED IN THIS SECTION, AN
ARBITRATOR SHALL NOT COMBINE OR CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PARTY'S CLAIMS
WITHOUT THE WRITTEN CONSENT OF ALL AFFECTED PARTIES TO AN ARBITRATION
PROCEEDING.
1.6 Arbitration Procedure. If you or Epson commences arbitration, the arbitration shall be governed by
the rules of JAMS that are in effect when the arbitration is filed, excluding any rules that permit arbitration
on a class or representative basis (the "JAMS Rules"), available at http://www.jamsadr.com or by calling
1-800-352-5267, and under the rules set forth in this Agreement. All Disputes shall be resolved by a
single neutral arbitrator, and both parties shall have a reasonable opportunity to participate in the
selection of the arbitrator. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this Agreement. The arbitrator, and not
any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve all disputes arising
out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Agreement,
including any claim that all or any part of this Agreement is void or voidable. Notwithstanding this broad
delegation of authority to the arbitrator, a court may determine the limited question of whether a claim or
cause of action is for an IP Claim, which is excluded from the definition of "Disputes" in Section 1.1
above. The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under
law or in equity. The arbitrator may award you the same damages as a court could, and may award
154
declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent
necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's individual claim. In some instances, the costs of
arbitration can exceed the costs of litigation and the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration
than in court. The arbitrator's award is binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of
competent jurisdiction.
You may choose to engage in arbitration hearings by telephone. Arbitration hearings not conducted by
telephone shall take place in a location reasonably accessible from your primary residence, or in Orange
County, California, at your option.
a) Initiation of Arbitration Proceeding. If either you or Epson decides to arbitrate a Dispute, both parties
agree to the following procedure:
(i) Write a Demand for Arbitration. The demand must include a description of the Dispute and the amount
of damages sought to be recovered. You can find a copy of a Demand for Arbitration at
http://www.jamsadr.com ("Demand for Arbitration").
(ii) Send three copies of the Demand for Arbitration, plus the appropriate filing fee, to: JAMS, 500 North
State College Blvd., Suite 600 Orange, CA 92868, U.S.A.
(iii) Send one copy of the Demand for Arbitration to the other party (same address as the Dispute
Notice), or as otherwise agreed by the parties.
b) Hearing Format. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made shall not be disclosed
to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or Epson is entitled.
The discovery or exchange of non-privileged information relevant to the Dispute may be allowed during
the arbitration.
c) Arbitration Fees. Epson shall pay, or (if applicable) reimburse you for, all JAMS filings and arbitrator
fees for any arbitration commenced (by you or Epson) pursuant to provisions of this Agreement.
d) Award in Your Favor. For Disputes in which you or Epson seeks $75,000 or less in damages exclusive
of attorney's fees and costs, if the arbitrator's decision results in an award to you in an amount greater
than Epson's last written offer, if any, to settle the Dispute, Epson will: (i) pay you $1,000 or the amount
of the award, whichever is greater; (ii) pay you twice the amount of your reasonable attorney's fees, if
any; and (iii) reimburse you for any expenses (including expert witness fees and costs) that your attorney
reasonably accrues for investigating, preparing, and pursuing the Dispute in arbitration. Except as
agreed upon by you and Epson in writing, the arbitrator shall determine the amount of fees, costs, and
expenses to be paid by Epson pursuant to this Section 1.6d).
e) Attorney's Fees. Epson will not seek its attorney's fees and expenses for any arbitration commenced
involving a Dispute under this Agreement. Your right to attorney's fees and expenses under Section
1.6d) above does not limit your rights to attorney's fees and expenses under applicable law;
notwithstanding the foregoing, the arbitrator may not award duplicative awards of attorney's fees and
expenses.

1.7 Opt-out. You may elect to opt-out (exclude yourself) from the final, binding, individual
arbitration procedure and waiver of class and representative proceedings specified in this
Agreement by sending a written letter to the Epson Address within thirty (30) days of your assent
to this Agreement (including without limitation the purchase, download, installation of the
Software or other applicable use of Epson Hardware, products and services) that specifies (i)
your name, (ii) your mailing address, and (iii) your request to be excluded from the final, binding
individual arbitration procedure and waiver of class and representative proceedings specified in
this Section 1. In the event that you opt-out consistent with the procedure set forth above, all
other terms shall continue to apply, including the requirement to provide notice prior to litigation.
1.8 Amendments to Section 1. Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, you
and Epson agree that if Epson makes any future amendments to the dispute resolution procedure and
class action waiver provisions (other than a change to Epson's address) in this Agreement, Epson will
obtain your affirmative assent to the applicable amendment. If you do not affirmatively assent to the
applicable amendment, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any Dispute between the parties in
accordance with the language of this Section 1 (or resolve disputes as provided for in Section 1.7, if you
timely elected to opt-out when you first assented to this Agreement).
1.9 Severability. If any provision in this Section 1 is found to be unenforceable, that provision shall be
severed with the remainder of this Agreement remaining in full force and effect. The foregoing shall not
apply to the prohibition against class or representative actions as provided in Section 1.5. This
means that if Section 1.5 is found to be unenforceable, the entire Section 1 (but only Section 1)
shall be null and void.
