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.

Setting Up the Projector

T his chapter tells you how to unpack the projector and connect it to

1 a notebook or desktop computer, to video equipment, such as a VCR,

DVD player, or video camera, and/or to your local area network.

You can also connect the projector to a USB storage device or digital camera, or use it with an SD card (G5150NL and G5350NL only).

Follow the instructions in this chapter on:

Unpacking the projector

Positioning the projector

Connecting to a computer

Connecting to video equipment

Connecting an external monitor

Playing sound through the projector

Connecting to a digital camera or other USB device

Inserting an SD card

Connecting a network cable

Turning the Projector On and Off

15

Unpacking the Projector

After unpacking the projector, make sure you have all these parts:

Projector and lens cap

PDF manuals and registration CD-ROM

Projector software

CD-ROM

Cable cover

Remote control and

2 AA batteries

Password Protected sticker

Lens theft deterrent screw

Power cord

VGA computer cable

note

If you mount the projector on the ceiling, the interface and button names on the projector will appear upside down. Attach the interface label stickers so that you can more easily read the names.

Interface label stickers

Save all packaging in case you need to ship the projector. Always use the original packaging (or the equivalent) when you need to send the projector to another location. If you are moving the projector by

hand, use the projector handle. See page 131 for transportation

instructions.

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. One may be provided with your video equipment.

To receive a component video signal from a VCR or other video device, you’ll need a component video cable. One may be provided with your video equipment.

To receive an RGB or component video signal from a video device that has RGB or component (PrPbY or CrCbY) connectors, you’ll need a BNC-type video cable. One may be included with your video equipment.

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 a signal from your computer’s USB port, you’ll need a

USB cable. You can purchase one from Epson. See “Optional

Accessories” on page 12.

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. Try to leave as much space as possible between the projector and the screen to get a good-size image.

Use the illustrations on page 18 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.

note

You can mount the projector on the ceiling, or place it behind a translucent screen for rear projection. See

page 149 for details.

Distance from screen

Also keep these considerations in mind:

■ 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 10 feet (3 meters) of a grounded electrical outlet or extension cord.

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 about level with the bottom of the screen.

Projector

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

.

Screen

If you place the projector below screen level, you can use the vertical

lens shift dial to raise the lens (see page 46). You can also tilt the

projector 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 47).

For instructions on installing the projector in a permanent location,

such as a theater or conference room, see page 149.

Connecting to a Computer

You can connect the projector to any computer that has a standard video output (monitor) port, including desktop models, PC notebook computers, MacBook, PowerBook, and iBook computers, and hand-held devices.

You can also connect a Windows

®

computer to the Type B USB port

on the projector (see page 21). This allows you to connect an

additional computer to the projector.

If you have the optional wireless mouse receiver, you can use your remote control as a wireless mouse when projecting from a computer

(page 56).

caution

Don’t try to force a connector to fit a port with a different shape or number of pins. You may damage the port or connector.

Preparing the Projector to

Present Through a Network

4l

T his chapter tells you how to prepare your projector so that you can send pictures to it through a network (G5150NL and G5350NL only). Using EMP NS Connection, you can project images shown on your computer screen—including text, graphics, and video—directly to your audience. If you have Windows Vista, you can also use the

Network Projector feature to communicate with your network-connected projector without installing any software.

You’ll find instructions and information in this chapter on:

Configuring basic settings

Connecting wirelessly to the projector in Ad Hoc

(computer-to-computer) mode or Access Point (infrastructure) mode

Using wireless security options

Projecting Over a Network

Using Windows Vista to connect to the projector

Before starting, make sure you’ve installed the optional wireless network module if you plan to project wirelessly (G5150NL or

G5350NL only). You must also install the EMP NS Connection software as described in the EasyMP Operation Guide for each computer you connect to the projector. Then follow the steps in this chapter to configure your projector and computer.

note

Make sure you’ve installed the NS Connection software

as described in the EasyMP

Operation Guide.

To connect to the projector over a wireless network, your computer must be running

Windows 2000, XP, or

Vista. Your Mac

®

must be running Mac OS X 10.3 or

later. See the EasyMP

Operation Guide for

complete system requirements for projecting wirelessly.

Access Point mode

(infrastructure mode) is required to achieve transfer speeds up to 54MB/sec on an

802.11g network. Ad Hoc mode (computer-tocomputer mode) limits network connections to

11MB/sec. This is a standard specification of

802.11g networking.

Configuring a Wireless Connection

If you have installed the optional wireless LAN module (G5150NL and G5350NL only), you can use NS Connection to connect to the projector and send images wirelessly in two modes: Ad Hoc mode or

Access Point mode.

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, you cannot connect to other wireless networks or devices; you can connect to the projector only.

Access Point mode (infrastructure mode) lets multiple computers access the projector at the same time and easily trade off control over the projector. To use Access Point mode, you need a wireless

(802.11a, 802.11b, or 802.11g) access point or an AirPort

Extreme (or AirPort) base station, and one or more computers with wireless network cards or adapters.

Follow the instructions below for the mode you want to use.

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.

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:

caution

Do not rub the lens with harsh materials or subject the lens to shocks, as it can easily become damaged.

Cleaning the Lens

Clean the lens whenever you notice dirt or dust on the surface.

To remove dirt or smears on the lens, use a commercially available cloth for cleaning glasses.

caution

Do not use wax, alcohol, benzene, paint thinner, or other chemical detergents.

These can damage the case.

Cleaning the Projector Case

Before you clean the case, turn off the projector and unplug the power cord.

To remove dirt or dust, wipe the case with a soft, dry, lint-free cloth.

To remove stubborn dirt or stains, moisten a soft cloth with water and a neutral detergent and firmly wring the cloth dry. Then wipe the case.

note

To order replacement air filters, request part number

V13H134A17. See page 12

for ordering information.

Cleaning the Air Filter

Your projector includes an air filter to ensure the best performance. If dust collects on the air filter (on the side of the projector), clean it as

described on page 123. Dust clogs prevent proper ventilation and can

cause overheating, which can damage the projector.

122

Maintaining the Projector

Follow these steps:

1. Turn off the projector and unplug the power cord.

2. Grip the air filter cover tab and remove the air filter cover as shown.

3. Place your finger into the groove and remove the air filter as shown.

4. With the front of the air filter facing down, tap it four or five times to shake off the dust. Turn it over and tap the other side in the same way to shake off the dust.

Maintaining the Projector

123

5. To clean any dust remaining on the air filter, use a small vacuum cleaner designed for computer and other office equipment to clean the front. If you don’t have one, gently clean the vent with a soft brush (such as an artist’s paintbrush).

6. Insert the air filter back into the holes in the cover, then press it firmly into place.

7. Slide the air filter cover in until you feel resistance.

8. If the dirt is difficult to remove or the filter is broken, replace the

compatible with the projector. See page 159.

The image is blurry.

■ There may be dirt or smears on the lens. Clean the lens as

described on page 122.

Adjust the focus using the focus ring (see page 46).

If the projector is angled sharply toward the screen, it may not be possible to focus the entire image. Move the projector to position it more directly in front of the screen.

Lower the projection angle to reduce the amount of keystone correction required.

Make sure the projector is within the proper range (projection

distance) from the screen (see page 156).

Make sure the lens is not fogged by condensation. You may need to wait before using the projector after moving it from a cold environment to a warm environment.

If you’re projecting from a computer, you may need to adjust the tracking and sync settings as described in the next section.

You see vertical bands or the image still looks blurry after trying the solutions in the previous section.

■ If you’re projecting from a computer and displaying an image that contains a lot of fine detail, you may notice vertical bands or some of the characters may look heavy or blurred. Press the

Auto button on the remote control or the

Enter

button on the projector to reset the projector’s Tracking, Sync, and Position settings.

■ If further adjustment is needed, you can fine-tune the

Tracking and

Sync

settings manually using the Signal menu, as described

on page 99.

1. Fill the screen with an image containing fine detail, such as a pattern to appear as your desktop background, or try projecting black text on a white background.

2. Adjust the

Tracking

to eliminate vertical bands.

note

You must be projecting an image for the

Auto

button to have any effect. It works only with computer images projected through the VGA port.

3. Adjust the

Sync

setting to increase the image sharpness.

note

Because of the different technologies used, your projected image may not exactly match the colors on your notebook or computer monitor.

The image is too light or dark, or colors are incorrect.

■ Use the

Color Mode

option in the projector’s Image menu to

adjust the color (see page 96).

If you’re displaying video, adjust the

Color Adjustment

and

Color Mode settings on the Image menu. You can also try adjusting the

Color Saturation

,

ABS Color Temp

, and

Tint settings on the Image menu.

Try adjusting the

Brightness

and

Contrast settings on the Image menu.

Try adjusting the

Brightness Control

setting (see page 100).

Check your computer display settings to correct the color balance.

The projector’s lamp may need to be replaced. See page 126 for

instructions.

Make sure the correct input signal is selected in the Signal menu

(see page 99).

Make sure that all cables are connected to the proper ports and connected securely.

There is no sound, or the sound is not loud enough.

Use the

Volume

buttons on the remote control to adjust the volume, or adjust the

Volume

setting in the Settings menu (see

page 101).

Make sure A/V Mute is not enabled. (The

A/V Mute

button may have been pressed.)

Solving Problems

If your presentation includes computer audio, make sure the volume control on your computer is not turned all the way down or muted. In Windows, you may be able to check this by clicking the volume control in your Windows system tray (lower right corner of the screen). On a Mac, you may be able to adjust the volume from your menu bar (top right corner of the screen) or via the volume control function keys.

If you’re using a DVD player or other video source, make sure the

cables are connected correctly, as described on page 32.

If you’re using a computer audio cable, make sure it is connected to your computer’s headphone jack or audio out jack.

Connect the other end to the projector’s

Audio

port (beneath the

Computer2 port) when the computer’s video cable is connected to the

Computer1

,

Computer2

, or

BNC

ports.

Nothing Appears on an External Monitor

The only images that can be displayed on an external monitor are computer images connected through the

Computer1

,

Computer2

or

BNC

input ports. See page 31.

Solving Network Problems

The projector does not send e-mail alerts even though the e-mail notification function has been turned on.

■ Make sure the mail notification function is set correctly in the

configuration menu. See page 116.

Set Standby Mode to

Network On

in the Extended menu.

Otherwise, the projector cannot send e-mails when it is in

Standby mode (when the power is off).

If a critical problem develops with a projector which causes it to suddenly stop working, it may not be possible for the projector to send a message.

Solving Problems

143

144

Solving Problems

Make sure the projector is plugged in.

Make sure the LAN cable is connected correctly. Reconnect it if it

is not connected or it is not connected correctly (see page 37).

For problems with EasyMP or the EMP NS Connection software, see the EasyMP Operation Guide.

For problems with EMP Monitor, see the EMP Monitor Operation

Guide.

Solving Problems With the Remote

Control

The projector doesn’t respond to remote control commands.

■ Point the remote control towards the receiver.

Make sure the projector and remote control IDs match. To operate all projectors by remote control regardless of ID settings, set the ID switch on the side of the remote control to

Off

.

The remote control’s batteries may not be installed correctly or

may be low on power. To change the batteries, see page 130.

Make sure you are within about 49 feet (15 meters) of the projector and within range of the projector’s front or back sensor.

Dim the room lights and turn off any fluorescent lights. Make sure the projector is not in direct sunlight. Strong lighting, especially fluorescent lights, may affect the projector’s infrared receivers. Also, turn off any nearby equipment that emits infrared energy, such as a radiant room heater. If necessary, use the

Remote Receiver

setting to disable the projector’s front or back

sensor if it continues to pick up interference (see page 101).

Make sure the

Remote Receiver

setting isn’t disabling both of

the projector’s sensors (see page 101).

If any buttons are held for longer than 30 seconds, the remote enters sleep mode. Release any button that is held to wake the remote.

When the optional remote control cable is connected, the remote control light-emitting area and the projector’s remote receiver are disabled. If you’re not using the cable, make sure it is disconnected from both the remote control and the projector.

Solving Problems

A

Projector Installation

T his appendix provides guidelines on installing the projector in a permanent location, such as a theater or conference room.

A

Installation Guidelines

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 Rear projection

Ceiling projection Rear/ceiling projection

To project from overhead, you’ll need the optional ceiling mounting

hardware (see page 12). You’ll also need to select the appropriate

Projection

setting in the projector’s Extended menu to flip the image

upside-down (see page 107).

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 Corner

and/or

Keystone

functions, as described on page 47.

Security Features

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.

150

Projector Installation

Security cable attachment

■ Kensington security slot.

The security slot (located above the power inlet) is compatible with the MicroSaver security systems manufactured by Kensington. You can purchase this lock from

Epson (see page 12).

■ Lens theft deterrent screw.

You can lock the lens with the supplied screw, so that the lens cannot be removed.

In addition, the projector includes several menu-operated security

features. See page 102.

Installing the Cable Cover

Install the rear cable cover to enhance the appearance of the projector and prevent any cables from being loosened or removed. To install the cover, insert its tabs into the slots as shown, then push the cover against the projector and tighten the screws at the bottom of the cover.

Projector Installation

151

To remove the cover (when connecting or disconnecting cables), loosen the screws on the bottom of the cover, pull the bottom of the cover away from the projector as shown.

T his appendix includes safety instructions and other important information about your projector.

C

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 vertical keystone correction (see page 157).

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.

165

166

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

32 to 104 °F (0 to 40 °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.

Do not project images while the detachable lens cover is still attached.

Heat may cause the lens cover to melt, and if you touch the lens cover you could get burned.

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.
