Safeguards
IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
1. Read and understand all instructions before using. Pay particular attention to areas where this
symbol ! is shown.
!
WARNING – Indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if not avoided, could
result in death or serious injury.
!
Caution – Indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if not avoided, could result
in minor or moderate injury. It may also be used to alert against unsafe practices.
2. Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is used by or near children. Do not leave
appliance unattended while in use.
3. Never look directly into the projector lens when the lamp is on. The metal halide lamp produces
a strong light which could damage your eyesight.
!
4. Care must be taken as burns can occur from touching hot parts.
5. Do not operate appliance with a damaged cord or if the appliance has been dropped or
damaged — until it has been examined by a qualified service technician.
!
6. Position the cord so that it will not be tripped over, pulled or contact hot surfaces.
7. If an extension cord is necessary, a cord with a current rating at least equal to that of the
appliance should be used. Cords rated for less amperage than the appliance may overheat.
8. Always unplug appliance from electrical outlet before cleaning and servicing and when not in
use. Grasp plug and pull to disconnect.
!
9. Let appliance cool completely before putting away or when replacing lamp. Loop cord loosely
around appliance when storing.
10. Disconnect this unit from its source of supply before replacing the projection lamp.
11. To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not immerse this appliance in water or other liquids.
12. To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not disassemble this appliance, but take it to a qualified
technician when service or repair work is required. Incorrect reassembly can cause electric
shock when the appliance is subsequently used.
13. The use of an accessory attachment not recommended by the manufacturer may cause a risk of
fire, electric shock, or injury to persons.
14. Connect this appliance to a grounded outlet.
!
15. This unit is equipped with optical lenses and should not be exposed to direct sunlight.
16. Keep ventilation openings free of any obstructions.
17. Always remove the lens cap when the projection lamp is on.

Caution
To prevent damage to equipment, all power to
the 3MMultimedia Projector MP8030 and
input sources must be turned OFF during cable
hook up.
The power cord (Figure 3-3) is detachable from the
projector and has different connection plugs on each
end. Plug the female end into the power cord
terminal on the projector and the male end into a
properly grounded electrical outlet.
Figure 3-3. Connecting the Power Cord
Computer (RGB) Connection
There are two input jacks and one output jack available for connecting either desktop or laptop computers.
Find the cable that fits your computer type. The MP8030 comes with two computer input cables. The first
cable (Figure 3-4) fits IBM PC and compatible VGA video systems, and the other cable (Figure 3-5) fits on
the end of the first cable and adapts it to fit Apple MACII computers and Apple MAC Powerbook laptop
computers. Connect the CRT cable into the RGB-Out terminal to view the image on both the monitor and
MP8030.
Figure 3-4. IBM PC Computer
Figure 3-5. Apple MAC II Computer
S-Video Connection
Some video devices can generate S-VHS video, or
S-Video (Y/C). The MP8030 will accept this signal
through the S-VIDEO1 or S-VIDEO2 connectors.
The S-VHS cable has identical round four-pin
connectors on either end (Figure 3-6). Connect one
end to the S-Video jack on the input source device,
and the other end to the S-VIDEO1 or S-VIDEO2
terminal on the MP8030. Remember to connect the
audio cables for sound output.

Video/Audio Connection
Find the small, circular connector on your camcorder laserdisc player, VCR, or other video source marked
VIDEO OUT, TO MONITOR, or something similar.
Use the 3-conductor video/audio cable and insert the video (white) connector into the video output jack of
your video source device, and the other end into the MP8030’s VIDEO1 or VIDEO2 connector.

3M Multimedia Projector MP8030

Next, find the AUDIO OUT terminals on your VCR or other audio source. Insert the left and right audio cable
connectors (Figure 3-7) to the input source, and connect the other end to the AUDIO-L and AUDIO-R
terminals on the MP8030.
Figure 3-7. 3-Conductor Video/Audio Input Cable
Use the Audio-Out terminal to disable the MP8030 speaker and channel sound to external speakers. The
remote control VOLUME and MUTE buttons will control the external speaker volume levels. If you are
giving a multimedia presentation that is complete with stereophonic sound, then you may want to consider
connecting your audio source to a high-quality stereo system. Of course, if you route your audio cables this
way, the MP8030 audio controls (VOLUME and MUTE) will not function.
RS-232 Mouse Control Connection (IBM Compatibles)
The MP8030 projector has an RS-232 connector (Figure 3-8) that
allows IBM compatible serial mouse emulation.

If the PC has an internal pointing device, it must be disabled (refer to your owners manual for
instructions)
After the pointing device is disabled, reboot the PC and the operating system (DOS, Windows)
should recognize the MP8030 stick switch as the pointing device
3-2. Projector SetUp
The meeting room is your operating environment and any stray light hitting the projection screen will become
glare. It is best to use a meeting room without wide-open windows. If there are “light stripes” from venetian
blinds, try to find a viewing area that’s away from them—and remember, the light stripes will move as the
hour changes.
Note
Whenever you have a choice, light the room from the rear, away from the projection screen. The
MP8030 has a brightness adjustment to achieve the best image possible.
Distance to Viewing Screen
The 3MMultimedia Projector MP8030 can be used in a small or large meeting room to project a quality
image from 46 cm (18 in.) to 762 cm (300 in.) in size. The distance between the projector and the viewing
screen (see “a” in Figure 3-10) and the zoom lens setting (minimum to maximum) will determine the size of
the projected image. Refer to the table in Section 9-2 to determine how far away from the viewing screen you
need to place the projector to fill the screen with the projected image.
Remember that increasing the projector-to-screen distance also decreases the image’s brightness dramatically.
In other words, as the image grows larger, it also grows dimmer. For best results, experiment to find the right
combination of projector-to-screen distance and room lighting.

Projector-to-Viewing Screen Alignment
The size of the projection screen and the distance of the projector to the screen are important considerations for
determining the best placement of the projector. After the best projector-to-screen distance has been
determined, the position of the projection screen in relation to the center of the projection lens must be
considered.
a = Distance to viewing screen
b = Center of lens to bottom of

Figure 3-9. Top View
Figure 3-10. Side View
Measured from the center of the projection lens (Figure 3-9), the projected image should be split equally left to
right. For best results, rotate the projector until the image on the projection screen is perpendicular (90°) to the
lens.
Measured from the center of the projection lens, the top to bottom projected image (Figure 3-10) is projected
with most of the image above the center of the lens and a small amount below the center of the lens. The
position of the projected image to the center of the lens is an important consideration for the vertical placement
of the projection screen.
Use the table below to calculate the approximate distance (see “b” in Figure 3-10) from the center of the lens
to the bottom of the projected image. Both normal and ceiling mount applications are affected by this
distance.

Adjusting the Projector Elevation
The elevation of the projected image can be adjusted by pushing the lock lever (Figure 3-11) on each projector
leg to the unlock position. Raise or lower the projector body to extend or retract the projector leg until the
desired elevation (1 to 7°) is obtained. Push the lock lever to the lock position to secure each projector leg.

Both projector legs must be raised or lowered the same amount to project a level image on the screen.
Minor elevation adjustments can be made by turning the foot in a clockwise or counterclockwise
direction.
Ceiling Mount Considerations
An optional ceiling mount bracket (Figure 3-12) is required to install the MP8030 from the ceiling. For this
type of installation, the image must be inverted. Refer to Section NO TAG, Inverting the Image for more
