Presets: Presets are provided that optimize the projector for displaying
computer presentations, film images, and video images. Film input is material originally captured on a film camera, like a movie; video input is material originally captured on a video camera, like a TV show or sporting event.
There are also user-definable presets. To set a preset for the current source,
adjust the image, select Save Settings in the Presets menu, then select Save
User 1 (or 2 or 3). You can recall these settings in the future by selecting the
User 1 preset.

White Peaking: (video sources only) adjusts the white level processed in
the image. It increases the brightness of whites that are near 100%.
Sharpness
Overscan: (video sources only) removes noise around the video image.
Sharpness: (video sources only) changes the clarity of the edges of a video
image. Select a sharpness setting.
Color Space: This option applies to computer sources. It allows you to
select a color space that has been specifically tuned for the video input.
When Auto is selected, the projector automatically determines the standard.
To choose a different setting, turn off Auto, then choose RGB for computer

PIN feature
The PIN (personal identification number) feature allows you to password
protect your projector. Once you enable the PIN feature, you must enter the
PIN before you can project an image.
To use this feature, you must register your projector at www.infocus.com/
register and follow the instructions there to get a default PIN. The PIN consists of a sequence of 5 navigation button presses. The navigation buttons
are menu, select, up arrow and down arrow. Once you have this PIN, select
Enable PIN in the Service menu. The Enter PIN dialog box appears.
Use the navigation buttons on the remote or keypad to enter the correct button press sequence. After pressing the first button, a dot appears in the current PIN slot and the highlighted cursor moves to the right one slot. When
all 5 numbers are entered correctly, press the Select button on the remote or
keypad to select OK. If the message “Incorrect PIN” appears, verify the code
and re-enter it. If you mis-enter a number, you must enter 5 numbers and
press the Select button in order to access the “Incorrect PIN” message and
re-enter the code.
To enter the PIN at projector startup:
Power up the projector. The “Enter PIN” dialog box appears after the startup screen. Enter the PIN. Use the navigation buttons on the remote or keypad to enter the correct button press sequence. See the description above for
instructions. If you lose or forget your PIN, go to www.infocus.com/pin.
To change the PIN:
Select “Change PIN” in the Service menu. Enter the existing PIN. Enter the
new PIN. You can navigate between OK and Cancel by pressing the up and
down buttons on the keypad. Select OK or Cancel by pressing the Select
button. Verify the new PIN.
To reset the PIN back to the default:
Power up the projector. After the “Enter PIN” dialog box appears, press and
hold the Select button down for 10 seconds. Enter the default PIN to use
the projector. If you lose or forget your default PIN, go to
www.infocus.com/pin.

Maintenance
clean the lens
with a soft dry cloth
and non-abrasive
cleaner
Cleaning the lens
1 Apply a non-abrasive camera lens cleaner to a soft, dry cloth.
Avoid using an excessive amount of cleaner, and don’t apply the
cleaner directly to the lens. Abrasive cleaners, solvents or other harsh
chemicals might scratch the lens.
2 Lightly wipe the cleaning cloth over the lens in a circular motion. If you
don’t intend to use the projector immediately, replace the lens cap.
Using the security lock
The projector has a security lock for use with a cable lock system. Refer to
the information that came with the lock for instructions on how to use it.

the lamp has been in use. Twenty hours before the specified end of the
lamp’s life, the message “Replace lamp” briefly appears on the screen at
each startup. When the expected lamp life has been reached, the Lamp indicator icon lights red (page 12).

WARNINGS:
•
To avoid burns, allow the projector to cool for at least 60 minutes before
you replace the lamp.
•

•
Be extremely careful when removing the lamp housing. In the unlikely
event that the lamp ruptures, small glass fragments may be generated.
The lamp module is designed to contain most of these fragments, but
use caution when removing it. Before replacing a ruptured lamp, clean
the lamp compartment and dispose of cleaning materials. Wash hands
after lamp replacement. This product has a lamp which contains a very
small amount of mercury. Dispose of it as required by local, state or federal ordinances and regulations. For more information see
www.eiae.org.

Cleaning the lamp filter screens
In dirty or dusty environments, the dust filter screens on the lamp module
and lamp door and in the lamp compartment can become clogged, causing
high temperatures inside the lamp module. These high temperatures can
impact lamp performance and operating life. Routine maintenance to
remove dust and dirt from the screens lowers the lamp operating temperature and prolongs lamp life. To maximize lamp life you will need to clean
the screens every 250 hours. Lamp screen maintenance may need to occur
more often than 250 hours depending on your installation/use environment.

1 Wait 60 minutes to allow the projector to cool thoroughly. Remove the
lamp module. Refer to page 33 for instructions.
2 Examine the dust filter screens on each side of the lamp module. If necessary, use compressed or canned air to clean the screens. Then use a
cotton swab dipped in isopropyl alcohol to lightly wipe each screen.
After you've wiped each screen, blow away any remaining contaminants.
