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
personnel.
WARNING: The projector and its accessories come packaged in plastic bags. Keep plastic bags away from small
children to avoid any risk of suffocation.
Caution: When you replace the lamp, never touch the new lamp with your bare hands; the invisible residue left by
the oil on your hands may shorten the lamp life. Use a cloth or glove to handle the new lamp.

16
Setting Up the Projector
Additional Components
Depending on how you plan to use the projector, you may need
additional components:
■
To receive an HDMI signal from your video device, you’ll need
an HDMI cable (EX70 only). One may be provided with your
video equipment.
■
To receive a component video signal from a DVD player or other
video device, you’ll need a component-to-VGA video cable. One
may be provided with your video equipment. (A
component-toVGA video adapter is provided with the
EX30/EX50).
■
To receive an S-Video signal, you’ll need an S-Video cable. One
may be included with your video equipment, or you can purchase
one from Epson. See “Optional Accessories” on page 12.
■
To receive an audio signal, you’ll need an RCA-type audio cable
with two male plugs, or a stereo mini-jack audio adapter cable.
Positioning the Projector
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.
Keep these considerations in mind as you position the projector:
■
Place the projector on a sturdy, level surface.
■
Make sure there is plenty of space for ventilation around and
under the projector.
■
Make sure the projector is within 5.9 feet (1.8 meters) of a
grounded electrical outlet or extension cord.

Projector Placement Options
When projecting from the front, you should place the projector
directly in front of the center of the screen, facing the screen squarely.
The center of the lens should be about level with 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.
Front projection
If you place the projector below screen level, you may need to tilt it up
by extending the front adjustable foot. Tilting the projector causes the
image to become “keystone” shaped, but you can correct the
distortion (see page 44).
You can also install the projector in three other viewing setups: ceiling
projection, rear projection onto a semi-transparent screen, or
rear/ceiling projection.
Ceiling projection

Displaying and Adjusting the Image
Adjusting the Image
Once you see your image, you may need to make certain adjustments:
■
If the image is too high or too low, reposition it as described
below.
■
If the image isn’t square, see page 44.
■
To focus or zoom your image, see page 45.
■
To quickly adjust the color, brightness, or contrast, see page 46.
■
To change the image aspect ratio, see page 47.
■
If you need to fine-tune the image and/or sound, see Chapter 5.

Raising the projector may cause the image shape to distort or
“keystone,” but you can correct the shape as described on page 44.
Displaying and Adjusting the Image 43
Adjusting the Image Shape
You can maintain a rectangular image by placing the projector directly
in front of the screen and keeping it level. This also produces the best
picture quality. If the projector is tilted up or down (up to 30°), or
placed at an angle, the shape may “keystone” and you may need to
correct the image shape.
The EX50 and EX70 projectors include an Auto Keystone function
that detects and corrects vertical keystone distortion up to 11°. It takes
about one second after the projector starts for the image to be
corrected.
If your image is still distorted, or you are using the EX30projector, do
one of the following:

These projectors support the high definition video and computer
display formats listed here.
To project images output from a computer, the computer’s video card
must be set at a refresh rate (vertical frequency) that’s compatible with
the projector. Some images are automatically resized using Epson’s
SizeWize™ technology to display in the projector’s native format. The
frequencies of some computers may not allow images to display
correctly; see your computer’s documentation for details.

his appendix includes safety instructions and other important information
about your 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.
■
Do not operate the projector on its side, or while tilted to one side.
Do not tilt the projector forward or back at a greater angle than that
specified for keystone correction (see page 101).
■
If the projector is mounted on a ceiling, it should be installed by
qualified technicians using mounting hardware designed for use with
this projector.
■
If you use a ceiling mount and apply adhesives to the mount to prevent
the screws from loosening, or if you use lubricants or oils on the
projector, the projector case may crack and the projector may fall from
its ceiling mount. This could cause serious injury to anyone under the
mount and could damage the projector. When installing or adjusting a
ceiling mount, do not use adhesives to prevent the screws from loosening
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.
109
110
Notices
■
Never push objects of any kind through the cabinet slots.
■
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.
■
Do not use the projector outside the required temperature range of
41 to 95 °F (5 to 35 °C). Doing so may cause an unstable display and
could lead to projector damage.
■
Do not store the projector outside the required temperature range of
14 to 140 °F (–10 to 60 °C) or in direct sunlight for long periods of
time. Doing so may cause damage to the case.
■
Do not touch the plug during an electrical storm. Otherwise, you may
receive an electric shock.
■
Unplug the projector when it will not be used for extended periods.
■
Unplug the projector from the wall outlet and refer servicing to qualified
service personnel under the following conditions: If it does not operate
normally when you follow the operating instructions, or exhibits a
distinct change in performance; If smoke, strange odors, or strange
noises come from the projector; If the power cord or plug is damaged or
frayed; If liquid or foreign objects get inside the projector, or if it has
been exposed to rain or water; If it has been dropped or the housing has
been damaged.
■
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 following.)
