Connecting a video device
4:3 screen
You can connect video devices such as VCRs, DVD players, camcorders,
digital cameras, video game consoles, HDTV receivers, and TV tuners to the
projector. There is also an audio input via the red and white A/V connectors. You can connect the audio directly to the projector to get sound from
the built-in speaker, or you can bypass the projector’s audio system and
connect the audio directly from your source to a stereo or home theater system.
16:9 screen
Do Not Use
4:3
mode
You can connect the projector to most video devices that can output video.
You cannot directly connect the coaxial cable that enters your house from a
cable or satellite company, the signal must pass through a tuner first. Examples of tuners are digital cable boxes, VCRs, digital video recorders, and satellite TV boxes. Basically, any device that can change channels is considered
a tuner.
16:9
mode
Before connecting your projector, you should decide which aspect ratio you
want to use. The projector’s Aspect Ratio setting is accessed through the
projector’s Picture Menu. See page 28 for more information.
What is Aspect Ratio?
Aspect ratio is the ratio of the image width to image height. TV screens are
usually 4:3, which is the default for this projector. HDTV and most DVDs
are 16:9. If you’re projecting onto a screen, the size/shape of the screen may
determine which aspect ratio to use. If you are projecting onto a blank wall,
you don’t have the screen size restriction. What you plan to project will also
help you choose between 4:3 and 16:9. Most TV shows are 4:3, while most
movies are 16:9.
Native
mode
(NTSC
only)
If you have a 16:9 screen then you should select an aspect ratio of 16:9 for
anamorphic movies or HDTV, and Native for 4:3 content. If you have a 4:3
screen you should still use 16:9 for anamorphic movies or HDTV, but you
also have the option of using either 4:3 (to fill the screen) or Native (for
direct pixel mapping) for 4:3 content. Keep in mind that anamorphic movies
only appear correctly if the DVD player is set to output to a 16:9 television.
12
Video device connections
Component video connection
No video cables are provided with the projector. You can order cables from
InFocus or provide your own.
If your HD video device has component connectors, an optional Component to VESA adapter can be used. Plug the component cable into the video
device. Plug the other end of the component cable into the adapter and plug
the adapter into the Computer in connector. Component offers the highest
quality video output.
Composite video connection
Plug the A/V cable’s yellow connector into the video-out connector on the
video device. Plug the other yellow connector into the yellow Video 2 connector on the projector.
Plug a white connector into the left audio out connector on the video device
and plug a red connector into the right audio out connector on the video
device. Plug the remaining white connector into the white audio in connector on the projector, and plug the remaining red connector into the red
audio in connector on the projector.
Keep in mind that video output from composite connections is not as high
quality as S-video.
S-video connection
If your video device uses a round, four-prong S-video connector, plug an
S-video cable into the S-video connector on your video device and into the
S-video 1 connector on the projector. Use the A/V cable’s red and white
audio connectors as described directly above (the yellow connectors on the
A/V cable are not used).
Keep in mind that S-video delivers higher quality video output than composite.
VESA connection
If your video device has a 15-pin VGA output, plug one end of the included
computer cable into the VGA connector on your video source. This connector may be labeled “To Monitor” on the video source. Plug the computer
cable into the Computer In connector on the projector.
13
The Status Indicator Panel on top of the projector indicates the state of the
projector and can help you troubleshoot.
Shutting down the projector
The projector automatically displays a black screen after no active source is
detected for 30 minutes. This black screen helps preserve the life of the projector. The image returns when an active source is detected or a remote or
keypad button is pressed.

Certain menu items may not be visible or may be grayed depending upon a
particular source being connected. For example, Sharpness is only available
for video sources and is not visible when a computer source is active. Menu
options are grayed out only if the source is selected but no signal is present.
For example, if the projector is set to a video source but the source, such as a

Sources: Power-up Source determines which source the projector checks
first for active video during power-up. When the Autosource feature is On,
the projector automatically finds the active source, checking the selected
Power-up Source first. The source options are Computer for a computer,
progressive DVD, or HDTV source, and S-video and Composite for video
sources. When this feature is Off, the projector defaults to the source
selected in Power-up Source. To display another source, you must manually
select one by pressing the Source button on the remote or keypad.

System>Rear: reverses the image so you can project from behind a translucent screen. Ceiling: turns the image upside down for ceiling-mounted projection. Low Power: toggles between on and off. Turn it on to lower the light
output of the lamp. This also lowers the fan speed, making the projector
quieter. Auto Power: When Auto Power is checked, the projector automatically starts up after the projector is powered on. This allows control of ceiling mounted projectors with a wall power switch. Display Messages:
displays status messages (such as “Searching”) in the lower-left corner of
the screen. PC Screen Saver Off: prevents your computer from going into
Screen Save mode. The projector must be connected to the PC via a USB
cable for this feature to work. Power Save: automatically turns the lamp off
after no signals are detected for 20 minutes. After 10 additional minutes
with no signal, the projector powers down. If an active signal is received
before the projector powers down, the image will be displayed. After an
additional 10 minutes with no signal, the projector powers down and can be
toggled off. If an active signal is received before the projector powers down,
the image will be displayed. When Power Save is enabled, Screen Save is
disabled. Screen Save automatically blanks the screen with a black color
after no signals are detected for a preset number of minutes. The image
returns when an active source is detected or a remote or keypad button is
pressed.

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/

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:
