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.

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 on and off the projector
■
Displaying an image
■
Troubleshooting display problems
■
Adjusting the image

Positioning the Projector
note
You can mount the projector
on the ceiling, or place it
behind a translucent screen
for rear projection. See
page 203 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, as shown.
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 figure below to help you determine placement. 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
29.7 to 48.2 ft
(9 to 14.7 m)
5.7 to 9.4 ft
(1.7 to 2.9 m)
2.7 to 4.6 ft
(0.8 to 1.4 m)
Distance from screen
Also keep these considerations in mind:
16
■
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 under the projector.
■
Make sure the projector is within 10 feet (3 meters) 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 13.
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 (see page 24).
For instructions on installing the projector in a permanent location,
such as a theater or conference room, see page 203.
Turning the Projector On and Off
Turn on any connected computer or video equipment before starting
the projector so it can automatically detect and display the image

■
■
Ad Hoc mode (computer-to-computer mode) lets you connect
just one computer to the projector at a time; it’s easy to set up,
and the only equipment you need is a computer with a wireless
(802.11g, 802.11b, or 802.11a) network card or adapter, or a
Macintosh® with an AirPort® or AirPort Extreme card. When
you connect to the projector in this mode, your connection to

Solving Connection Problems
If you don’t see your projector, check the following:
1. Make sure your wireless signal is strong enough to establish a
connection. If you have a Mac, check the AirPort icon on the Mac
menu bar. For Windows, see the documentation for your access
point or wireless network card or adapter.
note
If none of these suggestions
work, see the troubleshooting
information beginning on
page 191.
2. Make sure you’re trying to connect to the right network. In

station, make sure the projector’s SSID matches the AirPort
network name. Remember that the SSID is case-sensitive.
5. Check the IP address for both your projector and your wireless
card, adapter, access point, or AirPort base station. The first three
segments of the IP address should be identical. The last segment
of the projector’s IP address should be close, but not identical, to
the last segment of the IP address for your wireless interface,
access point, or base station.
6. Restart your computer and start NS Connection again.
7. If you still don’t see your projector, follow the instructions in
“Connecting in Advanced Connection Mode” on page 94 to

Creating a Scenario
A scenario is a combination of images, movies, and/or audio files that
you can present from a USB drive. The easiest way to create a scenario
is to drag and drop a PowerPoint file on the
EMP SlideMaker2
icon on your desktop. This automatically converts the file to a
scenario that you can save to the drive. Use this method if you have an
existing PowerPoint presentation that you want to transfer to the
projector.
If you prefer, you can create a scenario from scratch by combining
a selection of PowerPoint slides, other graphics, and even movies
(see page 119).
note
To create a scenario, you need
a USB drive connected to
your computer. Also make
sure you’ve installed the EMP
SlideMaker software
(available for Windows only),
as described on page 199.
Presenting From a USB Drive, Camera, or CompactFlash Card 117

Maintaining the Projector
Y
our projector needs little maintenance. All you have to do is keep
the lens clean. You may also need to clean the air filter and vent. A
clogged air filter or vent can block ventilation needed to cool the
projector.
warning
Before you clean any part of
the projector, turn it off and
unplug the power cord.
Never open any cover on the
projector, except the lamp
cover. Dangerous electrical
voltages in the projector can
injure you severely. Do not
try to service this product
yourself, except as specifically
explained in this User’s
Guide. Refer all other
servicing to qualified service
personnel.
The only parts you should replace are the lamp and air filter. If any
other part needs replacing, contact your dealer or a qualified servicer.
This chapter covers the following:
■

Maintaining the Projector
Cleaning the Air Filter and Vent
Your projector includes an air filter to ensure the best performance. If
dust collects on the air filter (on the bottom of the projector) or vent
(on the front of the projector), clean them as described below. Dust
clogs prevent proper ventilation and can cause overheating, which can
damage the projector.
Follow these steps:
note
To order replacement air
filters, request part number
V13H134A08. See page 13
for ordering information.
1. Turn off the projector and unplug the power cord.

wrong network, you may be experiencing signal interference from
another network. Try resetting your access point or base station,
then restart NS Connection.
■
If you’re using AirPort, the projector’s ESSID should match the
AirPort network name, not the name of the AirPort base station.
To check the network name, start the AirPort Admin utility,
select your base station, and click Configure. Then click Show
All Settings. The network name appears on the AirPort tab.
■
If you’re prompted for a password when you connect, enter the

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 13). You’ll also need to select the appropriate
Projection setting in the projector’s Extended menu to flip the image
upside-down (see page 149).
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 image using the projector’s Quick Setup, Quick
Corner, and/or Keystone functions, as described on page 24.
203
The projector includes security features to prevent its theft when
installed or used in public locations:
■
Security cable attachment. You can attach a commercially
available security cable as shown below to secure the projector to a
table or ceiling mount.
■
Kensington security slot. The security slot is compatible with
the MicroSaver security systems manufactured by Kensington.
You can purchase this lock from Epson (see page 13).

Notices
This 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.

papers, which could block vents underneath your projector.
211
212
Notices
■
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.

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.

other hazards.
■
Use the type of power source indicated on the projector. 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. 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 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.
■
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.
