Remote Control Operating Range
The remote control uses infrared transmission to control the projector. It is not necessary to point the
remote directly at the projector. Provided you are not holding the remote perpendicular to the sides
or the rear of the projector, the remote functions within a radius of about 7 meters (23 feet) and 30
degrees above or below the projector level. If the projector does not respond to the remote control,
move a little closer towards the projector.
Projector and Remote Control Buttons
The projector can be operated using the remote control or the buttons on the top of the projector.
All operations can be carried out with the remote control; however the buttons on the projector are
limited in use. The following illustration shows the corresponding buttons on the remote control and
on the projector.
ViewSonic
PJ588D/PJ568D/PJ508D

TROUBLESHOOTING
Common problems and solutions
These guidelines provide tips to deal with problems you may encounter while using the projector. If
the problem remains unsolved, contact your dealer for assistance.
Often after time spent troubleshooting, the problem is traced to something as simple as a loose
connection. Check the following before proceeding to the problem-specific solutions.
•Use some other electrical device to confirm that the electrical outlet is working.
•Ensure the projector is turned on.
•Ensure all connections are securely attached.
•Ensure the attached device is turned on.
•Ensure a connected PC is not in suspend mode.
•Ensure a connected notebook computer is configured for an external display. (This is
usually done by pressing an Fn-key combination on the notebook.)
Tips for Troubleshooting
In each problem-specific section, try the steps in the order as suggested. This may help you to solve
the problem more quickly.
Try to pin point the problem and thus avoid replacing non-defective parts.
For example, if you replace batteries and the problem remains, put the original batteries back and go
to the next step.
Keep a record of the steps you take when troubleshooting: The information may be useful when
calling for technical support or for passing on to service personnel.
