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. 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.
Before connecting your projector, you should decide which aspect ratio you
want to use. The projector’s Aspect Ratio setting is accessed through the
Resize button on the remote or through the projector’s Basic Picture Menu.
See page 28 for more information.
16:9
mode
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 1 or Computer 2 connector. Component
offers the highest quality video output.
Composite video connection
Plug the composite video 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 the white connector of a Mini-plug audio Y-cable into the left audio out
connector on the video device and plug the red connector into the right
audio out connector on the video device. Plug the other end of the cable into
the Audio In Video 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
Video 1 connector on the projector. Use the audio cable as described above.
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 1 or Computer 2 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.
Screen Save Time
Table 2: Status indicator light behavior and meaning
You can make the black screen appear after a preset number of minutes by
turning on the Screen Save Time feature in the Setup menu. See page 30.

AC Power On: When this feature is on, the projector automatically turns on
when electrical power is connected. This allows control of ceiling mounted
projectors with a wall power switch.
Video Standard: when it is set to Auto, the projector attempts to automatically pick the video standard based on the input signal it receives. (The
video standard options may vary depending on your region of the world.) If
the projector is unable to detect the correct standard, the colors may not
look right or the image may appear “torn.” If this happens, manually select
a video standard by selecting NTSC, PAL, or SECAM from the Video Standard menu.
Auto Off Time: automatically turns the projector off after no signals are
detected for a preset number of minutes. If an active signal is received
before the projector powers down, the image will be displayed.

captions on and off (if your source includes closed captions). By default,
when you mute the projector, captions are displayed. You can control
which captions (if any) should appear when muted or not muted by turning
mute on or off, then choosing this menu and selecting CC1 (closed caption
1, the most common channel), CC2, or Off.

output of the lamp. This also lowers the fan speed, making the projector
quieter.

Ceiling Mount: turns the image upside down for ceiling-mounted projection.
PIN Protect: 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. The default PIN on this
projector is Menu-Arrow Up-Arrow Down-Select-Source. Use the navigation buttons on the remote or keypad to enter the correct 5-button press
sequence. When all 5 numbers are entered correctly, press the Select button
on the remote or keypad to select OK. If the message “Wrong 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 “Wrong PIN”
message and re-enter the code.
Rear Project: reverses the image so you can project from behind a translucent screen.
Prevent PC Screen Saver: 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.
Startup Screen: allows you to display a blank screen instead of the default
screen at startup, and when no source is detected.
To enter the PIN at projector startup:
Take Snapshot...: captures the current image and allows it to be used as the
startup screen image.
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.
Blank Screen Color: determines what color is displayed when you press
the Blank button on the remote.
To change the PIN:

is useful for classroom tests or break times during meetings.
Select “Change PIN...” in the Setup 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.
Show Messages: displays status messages (such as “Searching”) in the
lower-left corner of the screen.
Menu Offset: allows you to change the position of the On Screen Display
items.
If you lose or forget your custom PIN:
Call InFocus Technical Support.
Menu Transparency: allows you to change how much of the projected
image behind the menu you can see. As the value increases, more of the
image behind the menu is visible.
Serial Port, Baud Rate: Selects the serial port and baud rate.
Serial Port Echo: Controls whether the serial port echoes characters.
Magnify Controls: allows you to change the function of the arrow buttons
when the menu is not shown. By default, the arrow buttons allow you to
advance slides while in PowerPoint’s SlideShow mode. To make the arrow
buttons also adjust magnify settings, choose Magnify Controls to turn magnify controls on. Now when the menu is not shown, you can press the Select
button to switch between the magnification settings (Magnify Level, Magnify Horizontal Position and Magnify Vertical Position), then press Select

Be extremely careful when removing the lamp module. 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. If replacing the lamp while the projector is ceiling-mounted, wear protective eyewear.

Hg – Lamp contains mercury. Manage in accordance with local
disposal laws. See www.lamprecycle.org.
4 A clear plastic lamp shield covers the base of the lamp module. To
remove the lamp module, you must access 3 screws underneath this
shield. Use a screwdriver to punch through the perforated holes in the
shield that cover the screws. Then loosen the two captive screws on one
side of the module. Next, remove the 3rd screw on the other side of the
module. If there is not a perforated hole above the 3rd screw, use a flatblade screwdriver to lift the shield enough to gain access to the screw
and carefully remove it.
Carefully lift out the lamp module. Dispose of the lamp in an environmentally proper manner.
