Welcome
Your versatile Epson
®
ELPDC05 High Resolution Document
Camera can be connected to most types of projectors and display
devices. From boardrooms to auditoriums to courtrooms, you can
show fine detail with a large variety of presentation materials. You can
even display three-dimensional objects with perfect illumination and
depth of focus.
Your document camera captures images at a resolution of
1024 × 768 pixels, with a maximum shooting area of 13.7 × 10.2
inches (350 × 260 mm). With its 18× zoom capability and true XGA
resolution, even 10 point type can be read clearly. For added
versatility, the document camera provides built-in white balance for
enhancing contrast, gamma selection for projecting in low light
environments, and flicker correction for crisper images. Even x-rays
display with great clarity.
You can connect the document camera to a wide range of computers,
including IBM® compatible PCs and laptops, Apple® Macintosh,®
Power Macintosh® series (including G3 and G4 systems),
PowerBook® computers, many iMac® and iBook® series systems, and
high-end workstations such as the Sun® SPARCstation.™
7
Getting the Most from Your
Document Camera
Depending on your presentation, you can take advantage of any or all
of these options:
■
Connecting to a projector or TV/computer monitor
The document camera requires an output device, such as a
projector or TV/computer monitor, to display its image. To
connect the document camera to these devices, see page 16.
■
Connecting to a laptop or desktop computer
You can connect up to two video output sources, such as laptops
or desktop computers. This is especially useful if your projector
has only one video input port. See page 18 for more information.
■
Using the remote control
The remote control lets you enlarge or reduce, brighten, focus,
and otherwise modify your displayed image. In addition, you can
control the lamps, switch the video source from the document
camera to a computer, save and recall both images and document
camera settings, and pause the display. See Chapter 2 for details.
Using Your Documentation
This book contains all the information you need to set up and use
your document camera. Please follow these guidelines as you read

Setting Up the Document Camera 13
Positioning the Document Camera
caution
Don’t hold or lift the
document camera by the
camera head arm or lighting
unit arms; this may damage
them.
Before connecting the document camera, you need to decide where to
place it. Follow these guidelines:
■
Place the document camera on a sturdy, level surface.
■
Make sure there is plenty of space for ventilation around and
under the document camera.
■
Make sure the document camera is within 10 feet (3 m) of a
grounded electrical outlet or extension cord, and within 5 feet
(1.5 m) of your output source.
■
Make sure you are within 23 feet (7 m) of the document camera
to use the remote control.
■
With the control panel facing you, place the document camera
directly in front of you. Otherwise, items you place on the stage
may appear upside-down.
Most presenters find it convenient to place the document camera in
front of the audience. This lets the presenter stand in the front of the
room, face the audience, and remain close enough to the equipment to
be able to control it.

Be sure to adhere to all warnings in the documentation and on the
document camera.
■
Carefully follow the instructions in this guide to set up and use the
document camera.
■
Turn off and unplug the document camera before cleaning. Clean with a
damp cloth only. Never use liquid or aerosol cleaners, or solvents or
harsh chemicals like benzene or paint thinner, as these may damage the
document camera.
■
Never point the lens into the sun, as this may damage the document
camera.
■
Use only attachments and accessories recommended by Epson.
■
Never use the document camera near water—for example, near a bath
tub, kitchen sink, laundry tub, or swimming pool. Avoid humid
environments, such as a wet basement.
■
Do not place the document camera near a radiator or heating vent or in
direct sunlight. Avoid placing it near equipment that generates heat.
■
Avoid locations that are subject to shocks or vibrations, dust, or rapid
changes in heat or humidity.
■
Place the document camera on a flat, stable surface that extends beyond
its base in all directions.
53
■
Do not block or cover openings in the base, or insert objects through the
slots. These openings are provided for ventilation to protect the
document camera from overheating. Never place the document camera
on a bed, sofa, rug, or similar surface. Do not place the document
camera in a built-in installation, such as a bookcase or rack, unless
proper ventilation is provided and the guidelines in this manual are
followed.
■
Place the document camera near a wall outlet where the plug can be
easily unplugged.
Placez l’appareil près d’une prise de courant où la fiche peut être débranchée
facilement.
54
Notices
■
Use only the type of power source indicated on the document camera
label.
■
Connect the document camera to a properly grounded power outlet.
Avoid using outlets on the same circuit as air control systems or other
high-load devices that regularly switch on and off.
■
If you use an extension cord with the document camera, make sure the
total ampere rating of the devices plugged into the extension cord does
not exceed the cord’s ampere rating. Also, make sure the total ampere
rating of all devices plugged into the wall outlet does not exceed the wall
outlet’s ampere rating. Overloading extension cords, power strips, or
wall outlets can result in fire or electric shock.
■
Follow the instructions in this manual to install batteries in the remote
control. Never expose batteries to heat or flame, and never mix old and
new batteries or batteries of different types. Do not use rechargeable
Ni-Cd batteries, and do not try to recharge or short-circuit the batteries.
Replace batteries as soon as they run out. If the batteries leak, wipe away
battery fluid with a soft cloth. If fluid gets on your hands, wash them
immediately. Dispose of used batteries according to local regulations.
■
This product may be equipped with either a polarized 2-wire AC line
plug (a plug having one blade wider than the other) or a 3-wire
grounding type plug (a plug having a third grounding pin). The 2-wire
polarized plug will fit into the power outlet only one way. This is a safety
feature. If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try
reversing the plug. If the plug still fails to fit, contact your electrician to
replace your obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the safety purpose of the
polarized plug. The 3-wire grounding type plug will fit into a grounding
type power outlet. This is a safety feature. If you are unable to insert the
plug into the outlet, contact your electrician to replace your obsolete
outlet. Do not defeat the safety purpose of the grounding type plug.
■
Do not let the power cord become damaged or frayed. Place the
document camera in a location where people are unlikely to walk on
the power cord, and the cord is not pinched by items placed upon or
against it.
■
Unplug the document camera and disconnect the cable when not in use,
or when there is a lightning storm. This will prevent damage to the
product due to power surges and lightning.
■
Take care when using a cart to move the document camera that the cart
doesn’t overturn or the document camera fall off.
■
Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel. Do not attempt to take
apart the document camera or open its cabinet, as this may expose you
to high voltage or other dangers.
■
Unplug the document camera and refer servicing to qualified service
personnel under the following conditions: if the power cord or plug is
damaged; if liquid has entered the product; if the product has been
dropped or the case damaged; if the product does not operate normally
or exhibits a distinct change in performance. Adjust only those controls
that are covered by the instructions in this manual.
■
This product includes a lamp component that contains mercury (Hg).
Please consult your state and local regulations regarding disposal or
recycling. Do not put in the trash.
■
To make sure that only Epson replacement parts are used, refer all
servicing to Epson-authorized servicers. Substitution of unauthorized
parts may result in fire, electric shock or other hazards.
■
Upon completion of any service or repairs to this product, ask the service
technician to perform safety checks to determine that the product is in
proper operating condition.
■
Handling the cord on this product or cords associated with accessories
sold with this product will expose you to lead, a chemical known to the
state of California to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm.
Wash hands after handling.
Remote Control Information
You can operate the document camera by remote control via a line-of-sight
infrared (IR) receiver on top of the camera arm. The document camera may
not respond to remote control commands under the following conditions:
■
There is an object between the remote control IR emitter and the IR
receiver on the document camera.
■
Ambient light is too bright.
Notices 55
■
Certain types of fluorescent lighting are used.
■
A strong light source shines into the IR receiver.
■
Other equipment that emits infrared energy, such as a radiant room
heater, is in the room.
These conditions commonly cause problems for most infrared-controlled
equipment. Try the following if you experience problems:
■
The remote control batteries may be low on power; replace them.
■
Dim the ambient lighting and/or turn off any fluorescent lights.
■
Close any window coverings and/or move the document camera out of
direct sunlight.
■
Turn off other equipment that emits infrared energy.
If the remote control still does not work properly, you can always use the
buttons located on the document camera control panel, even in an
environment containing one of the conditions listed above.

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 two (2) years 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
FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. SOME LAWS DO NOT ALLOW
Notices 59
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.
