systems: Microsoft Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT 4.0,
and Windows 2000.
To install the Presentation utility onto a portable computer:
1. Insert the CD-ROM into the computer’s CD-ROM drive. The
CD-ROM menu will automatically launch on the screen.
2. From the launch menu, click “Install Software#Install
Presentation Utility” and follow the on-screen instructions.
3. Select Next in the dialog box to install the program. The
Presentation utility installs on the hard drive and you are
prompted to restart the computer. Upon restart, a program icon
(yellow beam of light containing a Q) is placed in the Windows
system tray.
4. Double-click the program icon to launch the Presentation
Properties dialog box.
5. Set the Presentation Mode Duration time in the dialog box.
The dialog box has default settings enabled to turn off the
computer’s power management features and screen saver
features.

English version will install on the computer.
Using the Compaq Projector Display Assistant Utility
The Compaq Projector Display Assistant utility included on the
CD-ROM is an adjustment tool for improving the display quality of
the projector. Adjustments need to be made when the projector is
first attached to a computer or when a different display mode is
selected for the first time. This utility can be run directly from the
CD-ROM or copied to a directory on the computer hard drive and
run from there.
To run the Projector Display Assistant utility for Microsoft
Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT 4.0, or Windows 2000:
1. Insert the CD-ROM into the computer’s CD-ROM drive. The
CD-ROM menu will automatically launch on the screen.

Connecting a Video Player
✎
If your video player uses a round, one-prong
composite video connector, use the RCA video cable.
If your video player uses a round, four-prong S-video
connector, use the S-video cable. Both cables are
included with the Compaq Multimedia Adapter.
1. Plug the RCA video cable into the video-out port on the video
player and the video port on the video adapter. If you are using
the S-video cable, connect it to the S-video out connector on the
video player and the S-video port on the video adapter.
2. Turn on the projector first, then the video player.
3. Press the Source button on the back of the Multimedia
Adapter to switch the projector signal from data (computer
icon) to video (TV icon). The data mode receives computer
inputs and the video mode receives video input such as a TV
tuner, videocassette recorder, or camera.
With the Compaq Multimedia Adapter attached, the projector is
compatible with major video standards such as NTSC, PAL, and
SECAM. Use the on-screen menu to adjust the video performance
manually or press the Resync button to optimize it automatically.

Care and Maintenance
This section explains how to care for and maintain your Compaq
projector during normal everyday use.
Protecting the Projector
To protect your projector from overheating and other types of
damage, follow these suggestions:
■
Use only a power source and connection appropriate for this
projector as indicated on the marking label.
■
Do not overload an electrical outlet, power strip, or convenience
receptacle. The overall system load must not exceed 80 percent
of the branch circuit rating. If an extension cord or power strip
is used, make sure that the cord or strip is rated for the product
and that the total ampere ratings of all products plugged into the
extension cord or power strip do not exceed 80 percent of the
extension cord or strip ampere ratings limit.
■
Install the projector near an outlet that you can easily reach.
Disconnect the product by grasping the plug firmly and pulling
it from the outlet. Never disconnect it by pulling the cord.
■
Unplug the projector from the wall outlet before cleaning. Do
not use liquid cleaners or aerosol cleaners.
■
Slots and openings in the cabinet are provided for ventilation.
These openings must not be blocked or covered. Never push
objects of any kind into cabinet slots or other openings.
■
Do not drop the projector or place it on an unstable surface.
■
Do not expose this product to rain or moisture.
■
Do not allow anything to rest on the power cord. Do not walk
on the cord.

■
Do not open the projector or attempt to service this product for
any other reason than to replace the lamp module. Adjust only
those controls that are covered by the operating instructions. If
the projector is not operating properly or has been dropped or
damaged, contact your Compaq authorized dealer, reseller, or
service provider.
Cleaning the Lens
To minimize the risk of damaging or scratching the lens surface,
this cleaning procedure has been developed. The first
recommendation is to remove any dust particles from the lens by
blowing them off with clean, dry, deionized air. However, this may
not be a convenient method, and an alternate method is described
below.
To clean the lens, use only a clean cloth and follow these steps:
CAUTION: Do not spray any type of fluid or cleaner
directly on the lens surface. Do not use liquid
cleaners.
1. Wipe the lens in a single direction with a clean, dry cloth. Do

Replacing the Projector Lamp Module
When the projector lamp reaches its end of life, it may pop when it
burns out. The lamp will need to be replaced before the projector
can be used again.
!
WARNING: When the lamp reaches its end of life, it
may pop or rupture. To reduce the risk of personal
injury, be careful when removing the lamp cover as
broken glass may be present. Never open the lamp
cover while the projector is operating or when the
lamp is hot.
The projector will alert you when the lamp approaches its failure
mode or end of life. When the message “Lamp May Fail Soon Replacement Suggested” displays on the projection screen, you
should change the lamp as soon as possible. Contact your local
Compaq authorized dealer, seller, or reseller to purchase a spare
lamp or have the lamp changed. You can also purchase a lamp
directly through www.Compaq.com

Problem
A blue screen displays on the
projection screen when a
videocassette recorder is
connected to the projector.
Lamp shuts off
Lamp burns out or makes a
popping sound
Multimedia Adapter speaker
does not operate.
Solution
Check the videocassette recorder Play
or TV/Video buttons. If that does not
work, refer to your videocassette
recorder manual.
1. If all five LEDs flash amber, the
projector has overheated and will
automatically shut down. Wait
five to ten minutes until the LED
buttons stop flashing and the
Standby Button turns amber
before restarting the projector
again.
2. A minor power surge may cause
the lamp to shut off. Wait a few
minutes, then turn it back on.
When the lamp reaches its end of life,
it will burn out and may make a loud
popping sound. If this happens, the
projector will not turn back on until the
lamp module has been replaced.
Contact your local Compaq authorized
dealer, seller, or reseller to purchase a
replacement lamp module. To replace
the lamp, follow the procedures in the
"Replacing the Projector Lamp
Module" section.
1. Make sure the audio cable is
correctly connected to the

Solution
Check the cable connections. If there

background picture.
The three AAA batteries may need to
be replaced.
1. Make sure the Y-cable is
connected to both the computer

not connect both the USB and
RS232 connectors to the
computer at the same time. The
USB connector is the preferred
connector.
2. If the RS232 connection is being
used, the remote control does not
function until the serial port is
initialized. You may need to
restart the computer to initialize
the serial port.
Refer to Appendix C “Flash ROM

If this does not resolve the problem,
contact your Compaq authorized
service provider or call Compaq
Customer Support for help. Refer to

Power Cords
The projector power supply is provided with Automatic Line
Switching (ALS). This feature allows the projector to operate
on input voltages between 100-120V or 200-240V.
The power cord set (flexible cord or wall plug) received with
the projector meets the requirements for use in the country
where you purchased the equipment.
If you need to obtain a power cord for a different country,
you should purchase a power cord that is approved for use in
that country.
The power cord must be rated for the product and for the
voltage and current marked on the product’s electrical ratings
label. The voltage and current rating of the cord should be
greater than the voltage and current rating marked on the
product. In addition, the diameter of the wire must be a
minimum of 0.75 mm2 or 18AWG, and the length of the cord
must be between 6 feet (1.8 m) and 12 feet (3.6 m). If you
have questions about the type of power cord to use, contact
your Compaq authorized service provider.
A power cord should be routed so that it is not likely to be
walked on or pinched by items placed upon it or against it.
Particular attention should be paid to the plug, electrical
outlet, and the point where the cord exits from the product.
