EPSON PowerLite 7800p Projector
Note: The formulas given here are for when the projector is placed
flat, without tilting it up at the screen. If you tilt it up by
extending the feet or use electronic keystone correction, your image
size may vary.
Positioning the Projector
Follow these guideline when deciding where to place the
projector:
Standard Lens
❏ Place the projector on a sturdy, level surface.
To determine the diagonal size of an image (in inches) when
you know the projection distance:
❏ Make sure there is plenty of space for ventilation around
and under the projector. Do not set it on top of anything
that could block the vents under the projector.
❏ Maximum diagonal size =
(((2.54 × projection distance) / 100) × 36) + 2.13
❏ Make sure the projector is within 10 feet of a grounded
electrical outlet or extension cord.
❏ Minimum diagonal size =
(((2.54 × projection distance) / 100) × 26.84) + 1.29
Image size increases with distance, but varies depending on
how you’ve adjusted the optical zoom and other settings.
To determine the projection distance (in inches) when you
know the diagonal size of the screen image:
❏ Maximum projection distance =
(((diagonal size – 1.29) / 26.84) × 100 / 2.54
TBD
❏ Minimum projection distance =
(((diagonal size – 2.13) / 36) × 100 / 2.54
Middle Throw Lens (V12H004M03)
27 to 36.5 ft
5.3 to 7.2ft
2.5 to 3.5 ft
To determine the diagonal size of an image (in inches) when
you know the projection distance:
approx. distance
from 60” screen
It’s best to place the projector directly in front of the center of
the screen, facing the screen squarely. If it isn’t placed this
way, the image will be “keystone” shaped, instead of
rectangular.
❏ Maximum diagonal size =
(((2.54 × projection distance ) / 100) × 27.42) + 1.49
Minimum diagonal size =
(((2.54 × projection distance) / 100) × 20.48) + 1.1
To determine the projection distance (in inches) when you
know the diagonal size of the screen image:
❏ Maximum projection distance =
(((diagonal size – 1.1) / 20.48) × 100 / 2.54
Screen
Projector
❏ Minimum projection distance =
(((diagonal size – 1.49) / 27.42) × 100 / 2.54
Long Throw Zoom Lens (V12H004L05)
Overhead View
To determine the diagonal size of an image (in inches) when
you know the projection distance:
If you place the projector below screen level, you’ll have to tilt
it up by extending the front adjustable foot. This also causes
the image to lose its rectangular shape. To correct distortion,
see “Adjusting the Image Shape” on page 8.
❏ Maximum diagonal size =
(((2.54 × projection distance) / 100) × 20.4) + 1.93
❏ Minimum diagonal size =
(((2.54 × projection distance) / 100) × 15.23) + 1.45
Calculating Image Size and Projection
Distance
To determine the projection distance (in inches) when you
know the diagonal size of the screen image:
Use the formulas below either to find out how large your
image will be when you know the distance from the projector
to the screen, or to find out how far from the screen to place
the projector if you want an image of a certain size. Since the
size of the image can be changed by rotating the zoom ring,
formulas are given for calculating both the minimum and
maximum sizes.
❏ Maximum projection distance =
(((diagonal size – 1.45) / 15.23) × 100 / 2.54
❏ Minimum projection distance =
(((diagonal size – 1.93) / 20.54) × 100 / 2.54

To adjust your image when it is wider on one side, do one of
the following:
❏ Look at the shapes of the icons on the
projector’s four Keystone buttons.
Press the button whose icon is the
opposite shape of your screen image.
Continue pressing the button until
you are satisfied with the shape of the
image.
Even if the projector is slightly tilted (within a range of 40° up
or down), the projector’s automatic keystone correction
function detects and corrects vertical keystone distortion.

Correcting Computer Images
If you’ve connected a
computer and the image
doesn’t look right or fit
properly on the screen, press
the Auto button on the
remote control (or the
Auto/Enter button on the
projector’s control panel).
Projecting Images Without a Screen
Even if you don’t have a screen, you can project images onto
surfaces like blackboards and colored walls without loss of
image color. Your projector has a sensor that measures the
conditions of the projection surface and automatically adjusts
the colors and shading of your image. For example, if you’re
projecting onto a surface near a window, your image appears
clear and well-defined rather than faint.
Auto
button
This automatically resets the projector’s tracking, sync,
resolution, and position settings.
Making Initial Color Corrections
Note: You must be projecting an image for this button to have
any effect. The Auto button works only with computer images.
Press the Wall Shot button on
either the remote control or the
projector’s control panel while
projecting an image.
Also, make sure the correct Computer or BNC Input option—
such as Analog RGB—has been selected in the Setting menu.
Alternatively, you can cycle through the input settings using
the corresponding source button (Comp, BNC) on the remote
control until you see your device.
Wall Shot’s status appears in
the upper right corner of your
screen. Then you see a sequence
of colors flash for approximately
five seconds while the sensor
measures the conditions of the
projection surface and adjusts
the image.
If vertical stripes appear in the projected image and the Auto
button doesn’t correct the problem, hold down the Shift
button on the projector’s control panel while pressing either
the Tracking + or the Tracking – button.
Wall Shot ON
Note: If the status message indicates that Wall Shot is off, press the
Wall Shot button again to turn it on.
When you turn off the projector, it stores the correction values
obtained by the last Wall Shot measurements. This is useful if
you’re projecting against the same surface and under the same
conditions. To retrieve these corrections, just press the Wall
Shot button again while projecting an image.
If the image appears fuzzy or flickers and the Auto button
doesn’t correct the problem, hold down the Shift button while
pressing either the Sync + or Sync – button.
Adjusting Color Corrections for a New
Surface
Note: Also make sure you have selected the correct Computer or
BNC Input option in the Setting menu for your computer. See the
User’s Guide for more information.
Follow these steps to adjust the correction values if you’re
projecting on a new surface or in a new location:
1. Press the Wall Shot button on the remote control or
projector while you’re projecting an image. Wait for the
Wall Shot status screen.
2. Press the Wall Shot button until you see Wall Shot
Readjustment on the status screen.
You see a sequence of colors flash for about five seconds as
the projector adjusts the color correction values for the new
projection surface.

Starting the Projector with a Password
Enabling Password Protection
When the password function is enabled, you see this screen
when you plug in the projector:
To prevent unauthorized use of the projector, you can assign
it a password. If you do, a screen appears requesting the
password whenever the projector is plugged in and turned on.
If an incorrect password is entered three times in succession,
the projector’s operation is locked and the power cord must be
disconnected and reinserted to redisplay the password screen.
Security Lock Release
Enter the password.
Note: If three attempts like this are made (an incorrect password
is entered nine times in succession), the projector remains locked
and you must contact the dealer to unlock it. Therefore, it’s a good
idea to write your password down. Also, make a note of the
“Request Code: xxxxx” number that appears in the Password
Protect Release screen. If you do forget the password, you’ll need
this code when you contact the dealer.

If a projector experiences a problem, it sends an e-mail
message to each of the addresses you provided using EMP
NetworkManager. The message includes the heading
“EPSON Projector” in the subject line. The body of the
message contains the name of the projector, the projector’s IP
address, and a description of the problem. The problem
descriptions are similar to the errors reported by EMP
Monitor listed on page 15.
❏ You can give the projector a name up to 15 characters
long. Do not include the following symbols: ! @ # $ %
^ & ' . _ { } ~.
Naming the projector helps you identify it in EMP
Monitor and EMP NetworkManager, especially if you’re
managing a lot of them.
If a plus (+) sign appears before the description, it indicates
that a problem has occurred. A minus (–) sign appears when
the problem goes away or is resolved.

❏ The message LAMP REPLACE appears on the screen when
the lamp comes on (after about 1900 hours) and the
lamp warning light is flashing orange. To maintain
projector brightness and image quality, replace the lamp as
soon as possible.
❏ To remove stubborn dirt or stains, moisten a soft cloth with
water and a mild detergent. Then wipe the case.
❏ The projected image gets darker or starts to deteriorate.
1. Turn off the projector and unplug the power cord.
2. To clean the intake vents, EPSON recommends using a
small vacuum cleaner designed for computers and other
office equipment. If you don’t have one, gently clean the
vents with a soft brush (such as an artist’s paintbrush).
❏ The
lamp warning light is flashing red (the lamp is
burnt out).
Contact your dealer or call EPSON at (800) 873-7766 in the
United States for a replacement lamp. Request part number
V13H010L22. In Canada, please call (800) 463-7766 for

Note: When you get a replacement lamp for your projector, new
air filters are included. You should replace the filters when you
replace the lamp. You can check how long the lamp has been in
use (see page 20).
Warning: Let the lamp cool fully before replacing it. In the
unlikely event that the lamp has broken, small glass fragments
may be present and should be removed carefully to avoid injury.
