Connecting to a Projector or Monitor
You can connect the document camera to any projector or monitor
that has a composite video or S-Video input port. EPSON projectors
and many television monitors support both connections. Computer
monitors generally don’t support either connection.
A standard RCA cable is supplied with your document camera. For a
higher quality image, S-Video is supported. However, you’ll need an
S-Video cable, which may be purchased from an electronics store or
video dealer.
Connecting the RCA Cable
Before you start, make sure your document camera and projector or
monitor are turned off.
1. Connect one end of the RCA cable to the document camera’s
Video port.
2. Connect the other end of the cable to the RCA input port on the
projector or monitor.

reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on,
the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the
following measures:
■
Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.

Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
■
Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to
which the receiver is connected.
■
Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.

interference levels which exceed the limits established by the FCC for this
equipment. It is the responsibility of the user to obtain and use a shielded
equipment interface cable with this device. If this equipment has more than
one interface connector, do not leave cables connected to unused interfaces.
Changes or modifications not expressly approved by the manufacturer could

Warranty
Epson America, Inc. Limited Warranty
What is Covered: Epson America, Inc. (“Epson”) warrants to the first end user
customer of the EPSON product enclosed with this limited warranty
statement that the product, if purchased and used 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 one (1) year from the
date of original purchase (except that the warranty period is 90 days for
lamps). For warranty service, you must provide proof of the date of original
purchase.
What Epson Will Do To Correct Problems: Should your EPSON product
prove defective during the warranty period, 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
repaired to the EPSON standard of quality. 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 covers only normal use in
the United States and Canada. For lamps, 24-hour-per-day use causes
unusual strain and is not considered normal use. This warranty is not
transferable and will not apply to products purchased from an end user. This
warranty does not cover consumables (e.g., fuses), other than lamps. 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.
THE WARRANTY AND REMEDY PROVIDED ABOVE ARE
EXCLUSIVE AND IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED
WARRANTIES INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE
IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS
Notices 37
FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. SOME LAWS DO NOT ALLOW
THE EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES. IF THESE LAWS
APPLY, THEN ALL EXPRESS AND IMPLIED WARRANTIES ARE
LIMITED TO THE WARRANTY PERIOD IDENTIFIED ABOVE.
UNLESS STATED HEREIN, ANY STATEMENTS OR
REPRESENTATIONS MADE BY ANY OTHER PERSON OR FIRM
ARE VOID. EXCEPT AS PROVIDED IN THIS WRITTEN
WARRANTY, NEITHER EPSON AMERICA, INC. NOR ITS
AFFILIATES SHALL BE LIABLE FOR ANY LOSS, INCONVENIENCE,
OR DAMAGE, INCLUDING DIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR
CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, RESULTING FROM THE USE OR
INABILITY TO USE THE EPSON PRODUCT, WHETHER
RESULTING FROM BREACH OF WARRANTY OR ANY OTHER
LEGAL THEORY. IF THE REMEDY ABOVE FAILS, EPSON'S
ENTIRE LIABILITY SHALL BE LIMITED TO A REFUND OF THE
PRICE PAID FOR THE EPSON PRODUCT COVERED BY THIS
LIMITED WARRANTY.
In Canada, warranties include both warranties and conditions.
Some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty
lasts and some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of
incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations and exclusions
may not apply to you.
This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other
rights which vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.
