Important safety instructions
Your BenQ projector is designed and tested to meet the latest standards for safety of
information technology equipment. However, to ensure safe use of this product, it is
important that you follow the instructions mentioned in this manual and marked on the
product.
Safety Instructions
1.
Please read this manual before you
operate your projector. Save it for
future reference.
2.
Do not look straight at the projector
lens during operation. The intense
light beam may damage your eyes.
3.
Refer servicing to qualified service
personnel.
4.
Always open the lens shutter or
remove the lens cap when the
projector lamp is on.
5.
In some countries, the line voltage is
NOT stable. This projector is designed
to operate safely within a mains
voltage between 100 to 240 volts AC,
but could fail if power cuts or surges
of ±10 volts occur. In areas where the
mains voltage may fluctuate or cut
out, it is recommended that you
connect your projector through a
power stabilizer, surge protector or
uninterruptible power supply (UPS).
6.
Do not block the projection lens with
any objects when the projector is
under operation as this could cause
the objects to become heated and
deformed or even cause a fire. To
temporarily turn off the lamp, press
BLANK on the projector or remote
control.

Safety instructions for ceiling mounting of 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 possible 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.

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.
The native resolution of the projector is 1024 x 768 pixels, which is a 4 to 3 aspect ratio
(expressed as 4:3). To be able to project a complete 16:9 (widescreen) aspect ratio image, the
projector can resize and scale a widescreen image to the projector's native aspect width. This
will result in a proportionally smaller height equivalent to 75% of the projector's native
aspect height.
4:3 aspect image in a 4:3 aspect display area
16:9 aspect image scaled to a 4:3 aspect
display area
Thus, a 16:9 aspect image will not utilize 25% of the height of a 4:3 aspect image displayed
by this projector. This will be seen as darkened (unlit) bars along the top and bottom
(vertical 12.5% height respectively) of the 4:3 projection display area whenever displaying a
scaled 16:9 aspect image in the vertical center of the 4:3 projection display area.
When determining the position of your projector, you should consider its intended use and
input signal aspect ratios. All inputs (other than composite Video being fed a 16:9 aspect
signal) will display in a 4:3 aspect ratio (and will require an additional 33% display height
than that of the scaled 16:9 aspect image projection area).
IMPORTANT: Do not select a permanent projector position based upon a 16:9 projection if you
will ever need to select an input (other than composite Video being fed a 16:9 aspect signal).
The projector should always be placed horizontally level (like flat on a table), and positioned
directly perpendicular (90° right-angle square) to the horizontal center of the screen. This
prevents image distortion caused by angled projections (or projecting onto angled surfaces).
The modern digital projector does not project directly forward (like older style reel-to-reel
film projectors did). Instead, digital projectors are designed to project at a slightly upward
angle above the horizontal plane of the projector. This is so that they can be readily placed
on a table and will project forward and upwards onto a screen positioned so that the bottom
edge of the screen is above the level of the table (and everyone in the room can see the
screen).
If the projector is mounted on a ceiling, it must be mounted upside-down so that it projects
at a slightly downward angle.
You can see from the diagram on page 16, that this type of projection causes the bottom edge
of the projected image to be vertically offset from the horizontal plane of the projector.
When ceiling mounted, this refers to the top edge of the projected image.
If the projector is positioned further away from the screen, the projected image size
increases, and the vertical offset also increases proportionately.
When determining the position of the screen and projector, you will need to account for
both the projected image size and the vertical offset dimension, which are directly
proportional to the projection distance.
BenQ has provided a table of 4:3-aspect-ratio screen sizes to assist you in determining the
ideal location for your projector. There are two dimensions to consider, the perpendicular
horizontal distance from the center of the screen (projection distance), and the vertical
offset height of the projector from the horizontal edge of the screen (offset).

How to determine the position of the projector for a given
screen size
1.
2.
Select your screen size.
Refer to the table and find the closest match to your screen size in the left columns
labelled '4:3 Screen Diagonal'. Using this value, look across this row to the right to find
the corresponding average distance from screen value in the column labelled 'Average'.
This is the projection distance.
3.
On that same row, look across to the right column and make note of the vertical Offset
value. This will determine the final vertical offset placement of the projector in
relation to the edge of the screen.
4.
The recommended position for the projector is aligned perpendicular to the
horizontal center of the screen, at the distance from the screen determined in step 2
above, and offset by the value determined in step 3 above.
For example, if you are using a 120 inch screen, the average projection distance is 4467 mm
and with a vertical offset of 183 mm.
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 keystone" on
page 29 for details.
How to determine the recommended screen size for a
given distance
This method can be used for situations where you have purchased this projector and would
like to know what screen size will fit in your room.
The maximum screen size is limited by the physical space available in your room.
1.
Measure the distance between the projector and where you want to position the
screen. This is the projection distance.
2.
Refer to the table and find the closest match to your measurement in the average
distance from screen column labelled 'Average'. Check that your measured distance is
between the min and max distances listed on either side of the average distance value.
3.
Using this value, look across that row to the left to find the corresponding screen
diagonal listed in that row. That is the projected image size of the projector at that
projection distance.
4.
On that same row, look across to the right column and make note of the vertical Offset
value. This will determine the final placement of the screen in relation to the
horizontal plane of the projector.
For example, if your measured projection distance was 4.5m (4500mm), the closest match in
the Average column is 4593 mm. Looking across this row shows that a 3000 mm (3 m)
screen is required. If you can only obtain imperial sized screens, the listed screen sizes on
either side of the 3 m screen are the 9' and 10' screens.
Checking the min and max projection distance values for these screen sizes, indicates that
the 4.5 m measured projection distance will need to be reduced to fit the 9' size screen, or
increased to fit the 10' size screen. The projector can be adjusted (using the zoom control) to
display on these different screen sizes at those projection distances. Be aware that these
different screens have different vertical offset values.

There is 3% tolerance among these numbers due to optical component variations. BenQ
recommends that if you intend to permanently install the projector, you should physically test
the projection size and distance using the actual projector in situ before you permanently
install it, so as to make allowance for this projector's optical characteristics. This will help you
determine the exact mounting position so that it best suits your installation location.

When connecting a signal source to the projector, be sure to:
1.
2.
3.
Turn all equipment off before making any connections.
Use the correct signal cables for each source.
Ensure the cables are firmly inserted.
In the connections shown below, some cables may not be included with the
projector (see "Shipping contents" on page 6). They are commercially available
from electronics stores.
Wireless connection (optional)
The Wireless module allows for simultaneous wireless connectivity to multiple computers
which are wireless enabled. This saves you from having to swap data cables between the
projector and different computers during a presentation. Wireless connectivity is most
suitable for situations where multiple presenters with separate notebooks are required to
seamlessly present individual presentations, like in meetings, conferences, lectures and,
classrooms.
Even though the Wireless module is not attached to the projector, everytime the projector is
turned on, the status of wireless connection will display on the screen while the projector is
searching for input signals during the start up procedure.
The Wireless module connects and attaches to the rear of the projector through the DVI-I
socket.
While the Wireless module is attached to the projector, you cannot use the DVI-I socket for DVI
cable connections.
Even though the projector may be using a wireless data connection, it still requires physical
connection to a power outlet using its power cable.
You can purchase a BenQ wireless
module from BenQ retailers. You
should attach the wireless module
to the projector before you connect
any other cables. Refer to the user
manual enclosed with the wireless
module for connection and
operation details.

Connecting Video source devices
This section describes how to connect the projector to Video source devices using video
cables. Video cable connections are recommended for Video presentations.
This projector also supports data (graphic) "PC" connection using wireless function. Wireless
connection is not recommended for Video presentations. See "Wireless connection
(optional)" on page 17.
You can connect your projector to various Video source devices that provide any one of the
following output sockets:
• DVI
• Component Video
• S-Video
• Video (composite)
You need only connect the projector to a Video source device using just one of the above
connecting methods, however each provides a different level of video quality. The method
you choose will most likely depend upon the availability of matching terminals on both the
projector and the Video source device as described below:
Best video quality
The best available video connection method is DVI. If your source device is equipped with a
DVI socket, based on the type of DVI connector you have, you can enjoy digital or high-end
analog video quality.
See "Connecting a Component Video source device" on page 21 for how to connect the
projector to a DVI source device and other details.
If no DVI source is available, the next best video signal is Component Video (not to be
confused with composite Video). Digital TV tuners and DVD players output Component
Video natively, so if available on your devices, they should be your connection method of
choice in preference to S-Video or (composite) Video.
See "Connecting a Component Video source device" on page 21 for how to connect the
projector to a component video device.
Better video quality
The S-Video method provides a better quality analog video than standard composite Video.
If you have both composite Video and S-Video output terminals on your Video source
device, you should elect to use the S-Video option.
See "Connecting an S-Video source device" on page 23 for how to connect the projector to
an S-Video device.
Least video quality
Composite Video is an analog video and will result in a perfectly acceptable, but less than
optimal result from your projector, being the least video quality of the available methods
described here.
See "Connecting a composite Video source device" on page 24 for how to connect the
projector to a composite Video device.
Connecting Audio
The projector has a built-in mono speaker which is designed to provide basic audio
functionality accompanying data presentations for business purposes only. It is not designed
for, nor intended for stereo audio reproduction use as might be expected in home theatre or
home cinema applications. Any stereo audio input (if provided), is mixed into a common
mono audio output through the projector speaker.

Selecting the aspect ratio
The 'aspect ratio' is the ratio of the image width to the image height. Most analog TV and
computers are in 4:3 ratio, which is the default for this projector, and digital TV and DVDs
are usually in 16:9 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.
You can change the projected image ratio (no matter what aspect the source is) by entering
Pro-Picture > Aspect Ratio. Select an aspect ratio to suit the format of the
video signal and your display requirements. There are three aspect ratios available:
In the pictures below, the black portions are inactive areas and the white portions are active
areas.
1.
2.
3.
Native: The image is projected at its original aspect ratio, and resized
to fit within the display area. For input signals with lower
resolutions, the projected image will display smaller than if resized
to full screen. You could adjust the zoom setting or move the
projector towards the screen to increase the image size if necessary.
You may also need to refocus the projector after making these adjustments.
4:3: Scales an image so that it is displayed in the center of the screen
with a 4:3 aspect ratio. This is most suitable for 4:3 images like
computer monitors, standard definition TV and 4:3 aspect DVD
movies, as it displays them without aspect alteration.
16:9: Scales an image so that it is displayed in the center of the screen
with a 16:9 aspect ratio. This is most suitable for images which are
already in a 16:9 aspect, like high definition TV, as it displays them
without aspect alteration.
16:9 aspect ratio is only sourced through the Component Video input when
being fed an appropriate 16:9 aspect signal. See "Connecting a Component Video source
device" on page 21 and "Obtaining a preferred projected image size" on page 14 for details.

temperature appears to have more blue in it.

Lamp information
Calculation of lamp hour
When the projector is in operation, the duration (in hours) of lamp usage is automatically
calculated by the built-in timer. The method of calculating the equivalent lamp hour is as
follows:
Total (equivalent) lamp hour
= (hours used in Economic mode) + 4/3 (hours used in normal mode)
See "Economic Mode (off)" on page 44 for more information on Economic mode.
The lamp hour in Economic mode is calculated as 2/3 of that in normal mode. That is, using
the projector in Economic mode helps to extend the lamp life by 1/3.
Warning message

the lamp, please install a new lamp or consult your dealer. An old lamp may cause a
malfunction in the projector and in some instances the lamp may explode.
