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

Displaying and Adjusting
the Image
W
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 off
■
Selecting the image source
■
Troubleshooting display problems
■
Adjusting the image
13
Positioning the Projector
note
You can mount the projector
on the ceiling, or place it
behind a translucent screen
for rear projection. See
page 89 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. 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 figures below to help you determine placement. (The image
shown below is projected at a 4:3 aspect ratio, but the PowerLite
1730W is capable of displaying images as wide as 16:10.) 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
PowerLite 1720
PowerLite 1730W
Also keep these considerations in mind:
14
■
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.
■
Make sure the projector is within 10 feet of a grounded electrical
outlet or extension cord.
Displaying and Adjusting the Image
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
should be at about the level of the bottom of the screen.
note
After positioning the
projector, you may want to
connect a Kensington
MicroSaver® anti-theft
device to the lock port on the
projector. You can purchase
this from Epson; see
page 12.
Projector
Screen
If you place the projector below screen level, you’ll have to tilt it up by
extending the front adjustable foot. This causes the image to become
“keystone” shaped, but you can correct the distortion by pressing the
buttons on the projector. See page 23 for detailed information about
correcting the image shape.
For instructions on installing the projector in a permanent location,
such as a theater or conference room, see page 89.
Turning the Projector On and Off
Make sure your projector and any computer or video equipment are
connected as described on page 39. Turn on your connected
equipment before starting the projector so it can automatically detect
and display the image source. If you turn on the projector first, or
have multiple pieces of connected equipment, you may have to select
the image source manually (see page 18).
Displaying and Adjusting the Image 15
Turning On the Projector
note
You can set the projector to
automatically turn off the
lamp and enter “sleep mode”
when it has not received any
signals or the A/V Mute slide
remains closed for a period
of time. This conserves
electricity, cools the
projector, and extends the
life of the lamp. To enable
sleep mode, see page 64.
Follow these steps to turn on the projector:
1. Open the A/V Mute slide (lens cover).
2. Plug one end of the power cable into the projector, and the other
end into an electrical outlet.
The P Power light turns orange.

Displaying and Adjusting the Image
3. Press the red P Power button on the remote control or on top of
the projector.
The projector beeps once and the P Power light flashes green as
the projector warms up, then an image begins to appear. When
the P Power light stops flashing and remains green, the projector
is ready for use.
4. If you are prompted to enter a password, see page 58.
warning
Never look into the lens
when the lamp is on. This
can damage your eyes, and is
especially dangerous for
children.
Using the Direct Power On Function
The Direct Power On function enables faster setup. The projector will
start up automatically when you plug it in; you won’t have to press the
P Power button.
Follow these steps to enable Direct Power On:
note
1. Press the Menu button on the remote control and select the
Extended menu.
2. Choose Operation and press Enter.
3. Choose Direct Power On and press Enter.
If a power outage occurs
when Direct Power On is
enabled and the projector is
plugged in, the projector will
restart when the power is
restored.
4. Highlight On and press Enter.
5. Press Esc or Menu to exit. The setting will take effect the next
time you plug in the projector.

Shutting Down the Projector
note
Lamp life results will vary
depending on mode selected,
environmental conditions,
and usage.
Turn off this product when
not in use to prolong the life
of the projector.
This projector incorporates Instant Off technology. To turn it off, you
can press its P Power button as described below, unplug it, or turn
off a power switch that supplies power to the projector. You don’t
have to wait for the projector to cool off first.
1. To turn off the projector, press the
P Power button on the remote
control or projector.
You see a confirmation message.
(If you don’t want to turn it off, press any other button.)
2. Press the P Power button again. The projection lamp turns off
and you can unplug the power cord.
If you want to turn the projector on again, make sure the orange
P Power light is not flashing, then press the P Power button.
3. If you extended the adjustable front foot, press up on the foot
release lever to retract it.
4. Close the A/V Mute slide.
Selecting the Image Source
note
To focus and adjust the
image, see page 22. If a
projected image fails to
appear, see page 19 for help.
18
Selecting the image source lets you switch between images input from
different pieces of connected equipment (such as a computer or DVD
player).
If you don’t see the image you want, press the Search button on the
remote control or the Source Search button on the projector until
you see the image you want to project.
Displaying and Adjusting the Image
You can also use the Source buttons on the remote control to switch
between devices connected to the ports identified on each button.
(The EasyMP button does not work with the PowerLite
1720/1730W.)
Troubleshooting Display Problems
Follow these guidelines if you’re having trouble displaying an image.
You Can’t Project an Image
If you don’t see the image you are trying to project, try the following:
■
Make sure the cables are connected correctly, as described
beginning on page 39.
■
Make sure the P Power light is green and not flashing and the
A/V Mute slide is open.
■
If you’ve connected more than one computer and/or video source,
you may need to press the Source Search button on the
projector’s control panel or Search button on the remote control
to select the correct source. (Allow a few seconds for the projector
to sync up after pressing the button.)
■
If you’re using a PC notebook, press the function key on your
keyboard that lets you display on an external monitor. It may be

The Projector and Notebook Don’t Display the
Same Image
If you’re projecting from a notebook, and you can’t see your image on
the projection screen and on your computer at the same time, follow
these guidelines.
If you’re using a PC notebook:
■
On most systems, there’s a function key that lets you toggle
between the LCD screen and the projector, or display on both at
the same time. It may be labeled CRT/LCD or have an icon such as
. You may have to hold down the Fn key while pressing it.
Allow a few seconds for the projector to sync up after changing
the setting.
■
If the function key doesn’t permit you to display simultaneously
on both screens, you should check your monitor settings to make
sure both the LCD screen and the external monitor port are
enabled.
From the Control Panel, open the Display utility. In the Display
Properties dialog box, click the Settings tab, then click
Advanced. The method for adjusting the settings varies by
brand; you may need to click a Monitor tab, then make sure the
external Monitor port is set as your primary display and/or
enabled. See your computer’s documentation or online help for
details.
If you’re using Mac OS X:
You may need to set up your system to display on the projector screen
as well as the LCD screen. Make sure your projector is connected and
follow these steps:
1. From the Apple® menu, select System Preferences, then select
Displays.
2. Click Detect Displays.
3. Make sure the VGA Display or Color LCD dialog box is selected.

Adjusting the Image
Once you see your image, you need to make certain adjustments:
■
If the image is too high or too low, you can reposition it. See
below.
■
To focus or zoom your image, see page 23.
■
If the image isn’t square, see page 23.
■
If a computer image displays incorrectly, see page 25.
■
If you need to fine-tune the image and/or sound, see page 49.
Adjusting the Height of Your Image
If the image is too low on the screen, you can use the front adjustable
foot to raise it.
1. Stand behind the projector. Press the foot release lever up and lift
the front of the projector.
2. Once the image is positioned where you want it, release the lever
to lock the foot in position.
3. If necessary, you can fine-tune the height or level of the image by
turning the projector’s adjustable rear feet.

Raising the projector causes the image to distort or “keystone,” but
you can correct the shape as described on page 23.
Displaying and Adjusting the Image
Focusing and Zooming Your Image
Turn the focus ring on the projector to sharpen the image.
Turn the zoom ring on the projector to reduce or enlarge the image.
Focus
Zoom
If the image still isn’t large enough, you may need to move the
projector farther away from the screen. You can also use the E-Zoom
buttons on the remote control to zoom in on a portion of the image.
See page 31 for instructions.
Adjusting the Image Shape
In most cases, you can maintain a square or rectangular image by
placing the projector directly in front of the center of the screen with
the base of the lens level with the bottom of the screen.
Even if the projector is slightly tilted (within a range of 30° up or
down), the projector has an automatic keystone correction function
that detects and corrects vertical keystone distortion.
Projector tilted up
Corrected image
Projector tilted down
It takes about one second after projection starts for the image to be
corrected. During this time, a vertical keystone correction gauge
appears on the screen.
If your image is still distorted, you can correct it using the Keystone
buttons on the projector’s control panel or the projector’s Setting
menu.

Displaying and Adjusting the Image 23
Using Keystone Correction
To adjust your image when it is wider on the top or bottom, do the

Using the Remote Control 31
Adjusting the Aspect Ratio
You can use the Aspect button on the remote control to adjust how
an image fits into the display area. Each time you press the button, the
projector changes to the next setting.
When Connected to Video Equipment
If you’re projecting from video equipment such as a DVD player, set
the projector’s Aspect setting to match that of the player. For
example, if the video player is set to output images at a 16:9 aspect
ratio, set the projector’s Aspect setting to 16:9 so they match. If the
player outputs images at a 4:3 aspect ratio, select 4:3 (PowerLite 1720)
or Normal (PowerLite 1730W).
PowerLite 1720
4:3 setting
16:9 setting
PowerLite 1730W
Normal setting
16:9 setting
Note that the projector’s native aspect ratio (XGA or WXGA,
depending on the model) is narrower than 16:9. Therefore,
widescreen movies and HDTV broadcasts will display with black bars
at the top and bottom when 16:9 is selected as the Aspect setting. For
the PowerLite 1730W, you can select Full to stretch the image
vertically to fill the whole projection area.
32
Using the Remote Control
When Connected to a Computer
For computer images, Normal is usually the best setting to select.
This displays the image at the largest possible size without stretching
it. For computers with wide-panel WXGA displays, the PowerLite
1730W displays the image at WXGA resolution, making full use of
the display area; likewise, the PowerLite 1720 displays XGA images to
their best advantage.
Depending on your computer display and projector model, you may
see black bars at the edges. In that case, try selecting 4:3 (PowerLite
1720 only) or 16:9. The PowerLite 1730W also lets you select:
■
Full to stretch the image to fill the whole projection area
■
Zoom to fit the image in one dimension only, with the other
dimension cut off
■
Through to display the image without stretching or scaling it
note
If part of the image remains
cut off, check the projector’s
Resolution setting (see
page 54). Select Normal or
Wide, depending on the size
of your computer’s display
panel.
If the resolution of the image is the same as the projector’s, changing
the Aspect setting has no effect.
Adjusting the Color Mode
You can use the Color Mode button on the remote control to adjust
the color, brightness, and other aspects of your image. This lets you
quickly adjust the image for various uses.
Press the button repeatedly to select from the following settings:
Game: For increased brightness and contrast when playing video
games or watching TV in a bright room. If you notice video delays
during high-speed gaming, turn off the Progressive setting (see
page 55).
Presentation: For computer presentations in a bright room with
color graphics.
Text: For computer presentations in a bright room with
black-and-white text and graphics.
Theatre: For watching movies in a dark room.
Photo: For vivid, high-contrast still images in a bright room
(computer images only).

When you change video settings, you should be able to see the
effect on the screen immediately. If you’re projecting from a
computer, you may also need to adjust the tracking and sync as
described in the next section. If you don’t like the new settings,
you can always select Reset to return to the factory default
settings.
You see vertical bands or the image still looks blurry after
trying the solutions in the previous section.
■
If you’re projecting from a computer and displaying an image that
contains a lot of fine detail, you may notice vertical bands or some
of the characters may look heavy or blurred. Press the Auto
button on the remote control to reset the projector’s tracking and
sync settings.
Solving Problems 83
■
If further adjustment is needed, you can fine-tune the Tracking
and Sync settings manually using the Signal menu, as described
on page 55.
1. Fill the screen with an image containing fine detail, such as
black text on a white background.
2. Adjust the Tracking to eliminate vertical bands.
3. Adjust the Sync setting to increase the image sharpness.
The image is too light or dark, or colors are incorrect.
note
Because of the different
technologies used, your
projected image may not
exactly match the colors on
your notebook or computer
monitor.

described on page 53 for precise control of the hue and saturation.
■
Check your computer display settings to correct the color balance.
■
The projector’s lamp may need to be replaced. See page 70 for
instructions.
There is no sound, or the sound is not loud enough.
■
Press the
button on the projector or remote control to increase
the volume.
■
Make sure A/V Mute is not enabled. (The A/V Mute button on
the remote control may have been pressed.)
■
Make sure the A/V Mute slide is open.
■
Try adjusting the Volume setting in the Setting menu (see
page 56).

sure the volume is not turned all the way down or muted. Also,
make sure the cables are connected correctly, as described on
page 47.
■
Make sure the audio cable is connected securely at both ends. For
computer audio, connect the cable to your computer’s
headphone jack or
audio out jack.
■
Make sure the volume control on your computer is not turned all
the way down or muted. In Windows, you may be able to use the
volume control in your Windows system tray (lower right corner
of the screen). On a Mac, you may be able to adjust the volume
from your menu bar (top right corner of the screen) or via the
volume control function keys.
Solving Problems with the Remote
Control
The projector doesn’t respond to remote control commands.
■
The remote control’s batteries may not be installed correctly or
may be low on power. To change the batteries, see page 28.
■
Make sure you are within about 20 feet (6 meters) of the projector
and within range of the projector’s front or back sensor
(approximately 30° to the left or right and 15° above or below).
Solving Problems 85

Solving Problems
■
Dim the room lights and turn off any fluorescent lights. Make
sure the projector is not in direct sunlight. Strong lighting,
especially fluorescent lights, may affect the projector’s infrared
receivers. Also, turn off any nearby equipment that emits infrared
energy, such as a radiant room heater. To avoid interference, you
can also turn off the projector’s front or back sensor with the
Remote Receiver setting (see page 57), but this may limit where
you can use the remote control.
■
Make sure the projector’s sensors have not been turned off with
the Remote Receiver setting (see page 57).
■
If the projector ID has been set, you may need to change the
projector or remote control ID. See page 37.
■
If any buttons are held for longer than 30 seconds, the remote
enters sleep mode. Release any button that is held to wake the
remote.

Projector Installation
T
his appendix provides guidelines on installing the projector in a
permanent location, such as a theater or conference room.
The projector can be installed for four different viewing setups: front
projection, ceiling projection, rear projection onto a semi-transparent
screen, or rear/ceiling projection, as shown:
Front projection
Ceiling projection
Rear projection
Rear/ceiling projection
To project from overhead, you’ll need the optional ceiling mounting
hardware; see page 12 for ordering information. You’ll also need to
select Front/Ceiling or Rear/Ceiling as the Projection option in 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 63).
89
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 56).
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 PowerLite projector.
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.
■
Do not place the projector on an unstable cart, stand, or table.
■

and do not use oils or lubricants.
■
Do not stand on the projector or place heavy objects on it.
■
Do not use the projector where it may be exposed to rain, water, or
excessive humidity.
■
Unplug the projector from the wall outlet 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.
■
Never spill liquid of any kind into the projector.
■
Do not use the projector where it may be exposed to excessive dust or
smoke.
■
Never push objects of any kind through the cabinet slots.
97
98
Notices
■
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.
■
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, which could block vents underneath your projector. 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 air exhaust vent.
■
Do not operate the projector in a closed-in cabinet unless proper
ventilation is provided.
■
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 store the projector outdoors for an extended length of time.
■

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.
■
Never open any covers on the projector except as specifically explained
in this User’s Guide. Never attempt to disassemble or modify the
projector. Refer all repairs to qualified service personnel.
■
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.
■
If you use the projector in a country other than where you purchased it,
use the correct power cord for that country.
■
Do not overload wall outlets, extension cords, or power strips. Do not
insert the plug into a dusty outlet. This can cause fire or electric shock.
■
Take the following precautions when handling the plug: Do not hold
the plug with wet hands. Do not insert the plug into an outlet with dust
present. 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. 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.
■
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.
■
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.
■
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 place the source of an open flame, such as a lit candle, on or near
the projector.
■
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 the eyes or mouth.
■
If the projector is mounted overhead and the lamp breaks, be careful to
prevent pieces of glass from falling into your eyes when you open the
lamp cover.
WARNING: The cords included with this product contain chemicals,
including lead, known to the State of California to cause birth defects or
other reproductive harm. Wash hands after handling. (This notice is provided
in accordance with Proposition 65 in Cal. Health & Safety Code §25249.5 and
