Remote control batteries
1. To open the battery cover, turn the remote
control over to view its back, push on the
finger grip on the cover and slide it up in the
direction of the arrow as illustrated. The
cover will slide off.
2. Remove any existing batteries (if necessary)
and install two new AAA batteries observing
the battery polarities as indicated in the base of the battery compartment. Positive (+) goes to
positive and negative (-) goes to negative.
3. Refit the cover by aligning it with the case and sliding it back up into position. Stop when it clicks into
place.
Notes on handling batteries
•
Do not mix old batteries with new ones, or mix different types of batteries.
•
Avoid leaving the remote control and batteries in an excessive hot or humid environment like the
kitchen, bathroom, sauna, sunroom, or in a closed car.
•
Dispose of used batteries according to the battery manufacturer’s instructions and local environment
regulations for your region.
•
If the remote control will not be used for an extended period of time, remove the batteries to avoid
damage to the control from possible battery leakage.
Remote control operation
•
•
Make sure that there is nothing positioned
between the remote control and the infrared (IR)
sensors on the projector that might obstruct the
IR beam from the remote control reaching the
projector.
up to 8 m
The effective range of the remote control is up to
8 meters, and at an angle within 30 degrees of the
IR beam. Always aim straight at the projector; however, most screens will also reflect the IR beam to
the projector.
Ceiling mounting the projector
We want you to have a pleasant experience using your BenQ projector, so we need to bring this safety
matter to your attention to prevent damage to person and property.
If you intend to mount your projector on the ceiling, we strongly recommend that you use a proper fitting
BenQ projector ceiling mount kit and that you ensure it is securely and safely installed.
If you use a non-BenQ brand projector ceiling mount kit, there is a safety risk that the projector may fall
from the ceiling due to an improper attachment through the use of the wrong gauge or length screws.
You can purchase a BenQ projector ceiling mount kit from the place you purchased your BenQ projector.
BenQ recommends that you also purchase a separate Kensington lock compatible security cable and attach
it securely to both the Kensington lock slot on the projector and the base of the ceiling mount bracket. This
will perform the secondary role of restraining the projector should its attachment to the mounting bracket
become loose.

Positioning your projector
Choosing a location
Your projector is designed to be installed in one of four possible installation locations.
Your room layout or personal preference will dictate which installation location you select. Take into
consideration the size and position of your screen, the location of a suitable power outlet, as well as the
location and distance between the projector and the rest of your equipment.
1. Floor Front:
Select this location with the projector placed near
the floor in front of the screen. This is the most
common way to position the projector for quick
setup and portability.
3. Floor Rear:
Select this location with the projector placed near
the floor behind the screen.
Note that a special rear projection screen is
required.
*Set Floor Rear after you turn the projector on.
2. Ceiling Front:
Select this location with the projector suspended
from the ceiling in front of the screen.
4. Ceiling Rear:
Select this location with the projector suspended
from the ceiling behind the screen.
Purchase the BenQ Projector Ceiling Mount Kit
from your dealer to mount your projector on the
ceiling.
Note that a special rear projection screen and the
BenQ Projector Ceiling Mount Kit are required for
this installation location.
*Set Ceiling Front after you turn the projector on.
*Set Ceiling Rear after you turn the projector on.

English
Obtaining a preferred projected image size
The distance from the projector lens to the screen, the zoom setting, and the video format each factors
in the projected image size.
This projector is equipped with a movable lens. See "Shifting the projection lens" on page 19 for details.
You can see the diagrams on pages 15 and 17 for the vertical offset values in the dimension tables that are
measured when the lens is shifted fully up or down.
If you are using a 120-inch, 4:3-aspect-ratio screen, please refer to "Long throw (LT): The screen aspect
ratio is 4:3 and the projected picture is 16:9"/"Short throw (ST): The screen aspect ratio is 4:3 and the
projected picture is 16:9". The average projection distance is 785 (LT)/250 (ST) cm.
If you have a 16:9-aspect-ratio screen and your measured projection distance was 4.5 m (450 cm), please
refer to "Long Throw (LT): The screen aspect ratio is 16:9 and the projected picture is 16:9"/"Short
Throw (ST): The screen aspect ratio is 16:9 and the projected picture is 16:9". The closest match in the
"Average" (LT)/"Distance" (ST) column is 428 (LT)/426 (ST) cm. Looking across this row shows that a 80inch (LT)/250-inch (ST) screen is required.
If you place the projector in a different position (to that recommended), you will have to tilt it down or
up to center the image on the screen. In these situations, some image distortion will occur. Use the
Keystone function to correct the distortion. See "Correcting picture distortion" on page 29 for details.

Shifting the projection lens
The lens shift control provides flexibility for installing your projector. It allows the projector to be
positioned off the center of the screen.
The lens shift is expressed as a percentage of the projected image height or width. It is measured as an
offset from the projected image’s vertical or horizontal center. You can use the lever to shift the
projection lens in any direction within the allowable range depending on your desired image position.
To use the lens shift lever:
1. Release the lever by turning it counterclockwise.
2. Move the lever to adjust the projected image position.
3. Lock the lever by turning it clockwise.

1. Lamp Native: With the lamp’s original color temperature and higher brightness. This setting is
suitable for environments where high brightness is required, such as projecting pictures in well lit
rooms.
2. Warm: Makes pictures appear reddish white.
3. Normal: Maintains normal colorings for white.
4. Cool: Makes pictures appear bluish white.
5. User 1/User 2/User 3: Recalls the settings customized in the Color Temperature User_ Fine
Tuning menu. See "Setting a preferred color temperature" on page 34 for details.
*About color temperatures:
There are many different shades that are considered to be "white" for various purposes. One of the common methods of
representing white color is known as the “color temperature”. A white color with a low color temperature appears to be
reddish white. A white color with a high color temperature appears to have more blue in it.

Color Management
In most installation situations, color management will not be necessary, such as in classroom, meeting
room, or lounge room situations where lights remain on, or where building external windows allow
daylight into the room.
Only in permanent installations with controlled lighting levels such as boardrooms, lecture theaters, or
home theaters, should color management be considered. Color management provides fine color control
adjustment to allow for more accurate color reproduction, should you require it.
Proper color management can only be achieved under controlled and reproducible viewing conditions.
You will need to use a colorimeter (color light meter), and provide a set of suitable source images to
measure color reproduction. These tools are not provided with the projector, however, your projector
supplier should be able to provide you with suitable guidance, or even an experienced professional
installer.
The 3D Color Management provides six sets (RGBCMY) of colors to be adjusted to favorite colors.
When you select each color, you can independently adjust its color range and saturation according to
your preference.
To adjust and store the settings:
1. In the Picture -- Advanced menu, highlight 3D Color
Management and press ENTER. The 3D Color Management
Yellow
page is displayed.
Green
Red
2. Highlight Primary Color and press / to select a color from
among Red, Yellow, Green, Cyan, Blue, and Magenta.
Cyan
3. Press to highlight Range and press / to select the color range
Magenta
you wish to make adjustment. The bigger the range, the more
Blue
proportions of its two adjacent colors the color contains.
Please refer to the illustration to the right for how the colors relate
to one another. For example, if you select Red and set its range at 0,
only pure red is selected. Increasing its range will include both the red color close to yellow and red
color close to magenta.
Press to highlight Saturation and adjust the color saturation level by pressing / .
If you select Red and set its range at 0, only the saturation of the pure red will be affected.
Saturation is the amount of that color in a video picture. Lower settings produce less saturated
colors; a setting of “0” removes that color from the image entirely. If the saturation is too high, that
color will be overpowering and unrealistic.
4. To leave and save the settings, press MENU/EXIT.

Setting 3D Comb Filter
This feature separates composite signal to Y (brightness) signal and C (color) signal, and can help produce
clearer and sharper images with correct colors in place.
This function is only available when a Video signal is selected
Selecting the aspect ratio
The "aspect ratio" is the ratio of the image width to the image height. Digital TV is usually in 16:9 ratio,
which is the default for this projector, and most analog TV signals and DVDs are in 4:3 ratio.
With the advent of digital signal processing, digital display devices like this projector can dynamically
stretch and scale the image output to a different aspect than that of the image input source. Images can
be stretched in a linear manner so the whole of the image is stretched equally, or non-linearly, which
distorts the image.
To change the projected picture ratio (no matter what aspect
the source is):
• Using the control button
1. Press ASPECT to show the current setting.
2. Press ASPECT repeatedly to select an aspect ratio to suit the
format of the video signal and your display requirements.
• Using the OSD menu
1. Press MENU/EXIT and then press / until the Display menu is highlighted.
2. Press to highlight Aspect Ratio.
3. Press / to select an aspect ratio to suit the format of the video signal and your display
requirements.
About the aspect ratio
1. Anamorphic (ANA): Scales an image so that it is displayed in the
center of the screen with a 16:9 aspect ratio. This setting stretches and
resizes linearly, except that it treats the vertical and horizontal
dimensions independently. It stretches the height of the source image
until it reaches the full projected height, and stretches the width of the
source image until it reaches the full projected width. This may alter
the projected aspect, depending upon the original aspect of the source
image. Anamorphic is most suitable for images which are already in a
16:9 aspect, like high definition TV, as it displays them without aspect
alteration.
2. 4:3: Scales a picture so that it is displayed in the center of the screen
with a 4:3 aspect ratio. This is most suitable for 4:3 pictures like
computer monitors, standard definition TV and 4:3 aspect DVD
movies, as it displays them without aspect alteration.
36
Using the projector
16:9 picture
4:3 picture
4. Wide: Stretches the picture horizontally in a non-linear manner, that
is, the edges of the picture are stretched more than the center of the
picture to prevent distortion of the central part of the picture. This is
suitable for occasions where you want to stretch the width of a 4:3
aspect picture to the width of a 16:9 aspect screen. It does not alter the
height. Some widescreen movies have been produced with their width
squashed down to the width of a 4:3 aspect, and are best viewed when
stretched back to their original width using this setting.
English
3. Letter Box (LB): Scales a picture to fit the projector’s native
resolution in its horizontal width and resize the picture’s height to the
3/4 of the projection width. This may produce a picture greater in
height than can be displayed, so part of the picture is lost (not
displayed) along the top and bottom edges of the projection. This is
suitable for the display of movies which are presented in letter box
format (with black bars on the top and bottom).

5. Real: This setting displays the image in a one-to-one pixel mapping

Care of the projector
Your projector needs little maintenance. The only thing you have to do on a regular basis is keep the lens
clean. Never remove any parts of the projector except the lamp. Contact your dealer or local customer
service center if the projector fails to operate as expected.
Cleaning the lens
Clean the lens whenever you notice dirt or dust on the surface. Before you attempt to clean the lens,
turn the projector off, unplug the power cable from power outlet, and leave it several minutes to cool
completely.
1. Use a canister of compressed air to remove dust. (Available from hardware stores or photographic
suppliers.)
2. If there is stubborn dirt or smudge marks, use a proper photographic lens brush or moisten a clean
soft lens cloth with lens cleaner to gently wipe the lens surface.
3. Never use any type of abrasive pad, alkaline/acid cleaner, scouring powder, or volatile solvent, such as
alcohol, benzene, thinner or insecticide. Using such materials or maintaining prolonged contact with
rubber or vinyl materials may result in damage to the projector surface and cabinet material.
Never touch the lens with your finger or rub the lens with abrasive materials. Even paper towels can damage
the lens coating. Only ever use a proper photographic lens brush, cloth, and cleaning solution. Do not
attempt to clean the lens while the projector is switched on or is still hot from previous use. Be sure to turn
off the projector and let it cool down completely before cleaning the lens.
Cleaning the projector case
Before you attempt to clean the case, turn the projector off, unplug the power cable from power outlet,
and leave it several minutes to cool completely.
1. To remove dirt or dust, wipe the case with a soft, dry, lint-free cloth.
2. To remove stubborn dirt or stains, moisten a soft cloth with water and a neutral detergent. Then
wipe the case.
Never use wax, alcohol, benzene, thinner or other chemical detergents. These can damage the case.
Storing the projector
If you need to store the projector for an extended time, please:
1. Make sure the temperature and humidity of the storage area are within the recommended range for
the projector. Please refer to the Spec. page in this manual or consult your dealer about the range.
2. Retract adjuster feet.
3. Remove batteries from the remote control.
4. Pack projector in its original packing or equivalent.
Transporting the projector
