Please read this manual before you
operate your projector. Save it for
future reference.
4.
Always open the lens shutter or
remove the lens cap when the
projector lamp is on.
2.
Do not look straight at the projector
lens during operation. The intense
light beam may damage your eyes.
5.
In some countries, the line voltage is
NOT stable. This projector is designed
to operate safely within a mains
voltage between 100 to 240 volts AC,
but could fail if power cuts or surges
of ±10 volts occur. In areas where the
mains voltage may fluctuate or cut
out, it is recommended that you
connect your projector through a
power stabilizer, surge protector or
uninterruptible power supply (UPS).
3.
When you think service or repair is
required, take the projector only to a
suitably qualified technician.
6.
Do not block the projection lens with
any objects when the projector is
under operation as this could cause
the objects to become heated and
deformed or even cause a fire. To

Remote control effective range
Infra-Red (IR) remote control sensors are located on the front and the back of the projector
with an incline of 45 degrees. The remote control is recommended to be held at an angle
within 30 degrees perpendicular to the projector's IR remote control sensors to function
correctly. The distance between the remote control and the sensors should not exceed 6
meters (~ 20 feet).
Make sure that there are no obstacles between the remote control and the IR sensors on the
projector that might obstruct the infra-red beam.
Always aim the remote control at the projector's IR remote sensor; however most screens
will also refect the IR beam to the projector.

Introduction
Positioning your projector
Choosing a location
Your projector is designed to be installed in one of four possible installation locations:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Floor in front of screen;
Ceiling in front of screen;
Floor at rear of screen;
Ceiling at rear of screen.
I. Floor front
Select this location with the projector placed near the
floor in front of the screen. This is the most common
way to position the projector for quick setup and
portability.
II. Ceiling front
Select this location with the projector suspended
upside-down from the ceiling in front of the screen.
Purchase the BenQ Projector Ceiling Mounting Kit
from your dealer to mount your projector on the
ceiling.
Set
in the Source > Mirror menu after you turn
the projector on.
III. Floor rear
Select this location with the projector placed near the
floor behind the screen.
Note that a special rear projection screen is required.
Set
in the Source > Mirror menu after you turn
the projector on.
IV. Ceiling rear
Select this location with the projector suspended
upside-down from the ceiling behind the screen.
Note that a special rear projection screen and the
BenQ Projector Ceiling Mounting Kit are required
for this installation location.
Set
in the Source > Mirror menu after you turn
the projector on.
Your room layout or personal preference will dictate which installation location you select.
Take into consideration the size and position of your screen, the location of a suitable power
outlet, as well as the location and distance between the projector and the rest of your
equipment.
Positioning your projector
17
Safety instructions for ceiling mounting of the
projector
We want you to have a pleasant experience using your BenQ projector, so we need to bring
this safety matter to your attention to prevent damage to person and property.
If you intend to mount your projector on the ceiling, we strongly recommend that you use a
proper fitting BenQ projector ceiling mount kit and that you ensure it is securely and safely
installed.
If you use a non-BenQ brand projector ceiling mount kit, there is a safety risk that the
projector may fall from the ceiling due to an improper attachment through the use of the
wrong gauge or length screws.
You can purchase a BenQ projector ceiling mount kit from the place you purchased your
BenQ projector. BenQ recommends that you also purchase a separate Kensington lock
compatible security cable and attach it securely to both the Kensington lock slot on the
projector and the base of the ceiling mount bracket. This will perform the secondary role of
restraining the projector should its attachment to the mounting bracket become loose.
18
Positioning your projector
Obtaining a preferred projected image size
The distance from the projector lens to the screen, the zoom setting, and the video format
each factors in the projected image size.
The maximum (native) resolution of the projector is 1024 x 768 pixels, which is a 4 to 3
aspect ratio (expressed as 4:3). To be able to project a complete 16:9 (widescreen) aspect
ratio image, the projector can resize and scale a widescreen image to the projector's native
aspect width. This will result in a proportionally smaller height equivalent to 75% of the
projector's native aspect height.
4:3 aspect image in a 4:3 aspect display area
16:9 aspect image scaled to a 4:3 aspect
display area
Thus, a 16:9 aspect image will not utilize 25% of the height of a 4:3 aspect image displayed
by this projector. This will be seen as darkened (unlit) bars along the top and bottom
(vertical 12.5% height respectively) of the 4:3 projection display area whenever displaying a
scaled 16:9 aspect image in the vertical center of the 4:3 projection display area.
When determining the position of your projector, you should consider its intended use and
input signal aspect ratios. All inputs (other than component Video being fed a 16:9 aspect
signal) will display in a 4:3 aspect ratio (and will require an additional 33% display height
than that of the scaled 16:9 aspect image projection area).
IMPORTANT: Do not select a permanent projector position based upon a 16:9 projection if you
will ever need to select an input (other than composite Video being fed a 16:9 aspect signal).
The projector should always be placed horizontally level (like flat on a table), and positioned
directly perpendicular (90° right-angle square) to the horizontal center of the screen. This
prevents image distortion caused by angled projections (or projecting onto angled surfaces).
The modern digital projector does not project directly forward (like older style reel-to-reel
film projectors did). Instead, digital projectors are designed to project at a slightly upward
angle above the horizontal plane of the projector. This is so that they can be readily placed
on a table and will project forward and upwards onto a screen positioned so that the bottom
edge of the screen is above the level of the table (and everyone in the room can see the
screen).
If the projector is mounted on a ceiling, it must be mounted upside-down so that it projects
at a slightly downward angle.
You can see from the diagram on page 21, that this type of projection causes the bottom edge
of the projected image to be vertically offset from the horizontal plane of the projector.
When ceiling mounted, this refers to the top edge of the projected image.
If the projector is positioned further away from the screen, the projected image size
increases, and the vertical offset also increases proportionately.
When determining the position of the screen and projector, you will need to account for
both the projected image size and the vertical offset dimension, which are directly
proportional to the projection distance.
BenQ has provided a table of 4:3-aspect-ratio screen sizes to assist you in determining the
ideal location for your projector. There are two dimensions to consider, the perpendicular
horizontal distance from the center of the screen (projection distance), and the vertical
offset height of the projector from the horizontal edge of the screen (offset).
Positioning your projector
19
How to determine the position of the projector for a given
screen size
1.
2.
Select your screen size.
Refer to the table and find the closest match to your screen size in the left columns
labelled '4:3 Screen Diagonal'. Using this value, look across this row to the right to find
the corresponding average distance from screen value in the column labelled 'Average'.
This is the projection distance.
3.
On that same row, look across to the right column and make note of the vertical Offset
value. This will determine the final vertical offset placement of the projector in
relation to the edge of the screen.
4.
The recommended position for the projector is aligned perpendicular to the
horizontal center of the screen, at the distance from the screen determined in step 2
above, and offset by the value determined in step 3 above.
For example, if you are using a 120 inch screen, the average projection distance is 4432 mm
and with a vertical offset of 302 mm.
If you place the projector in a different position (to that recommended), you will have to tilt
it down or up to center the image on the screen. In these situations, some image distortion
will occur. Use the Keystone function to correct the distortion. See "Correcting keystone" on
page 34 for details.
How to determine the recommended screen size for a
given distance
This method can be used for situations where you have purchased this projector and would
like to know what screen size will fit in your room.
The maximum screen size is limited by the physical space available in your room.
1.
Measure the distance between the projector and where you want to position the
screen. This is the projection distance.
2.
Refer to the table and find the closest match to your measurement in the average
distance from screen column labelled 'Average'. Check that your measured distance is
between the min and max distances listed on either side of the average distance value.
3.
Using this value, look across that row to the left to find the corresponding screen
diagonal listed in that row. That is the projected image size of the projector at that
projection distance.
4.
On that same row, look across to the right column and make note of the vertical Offset
value. This will determine the final placement of the screen in relation to the
horizontal plane of the projector.
For example, if your measured projection distance was 4.8 m (4800 mm), the closest match
in the Average column is 5089 mm. Looking across this row shows that a 3500 mm (3.5 m)
screen is required. If you can only obtain imperial sized screens, the listed screen sizes on
either side of the 3.5 m screen are the 10' and 12' screen.
Checking the min. and max. projection distance values for these screen sizes indicates that
the 4.8 m measured projection distance will need to be reduced to fit the 10' size screen, or
increased to fit the 12' size screen. The projector can be adjusted (using the zoom control) to
display on these different screen sizes at those projection distances. Be aware that these
different screens have different vertical offset values.

There is 3% tolerance among these numbers due to optical component variations. BenQ
recommends that if you intend to permanently install the projector, you should physically test
the projection size and distance using the actual projector in situ before you permanently
install it, so as to make allowance for this projector's optical characteristics. This will help you
determine the exact mounting position so that it best suits your installation location.

Connection
Connecting Video source devices
You can connect your projector to various Video source devices that provide any one of the
following output sockets:
•
DVI
•
Component Video
•
S-Video
•
Video (composite)
You need only connect the projector to a Video source device using just one of the above
connecting methods, however each provides a different level of video quality. The method
you choose will most likely depend upon the availability of matching terminals on both the
projector and the Video source device as described below:
Best video quality
The best available video connection method is DVI, if your source device is equipped with a
DVI socket. Based on the type of DVI connector you have, you can enjoy a digital or highend analog video quality.
See "Connecting a DVI source device" on page 26 for how to connect the projector to a DVI
source device and other details.
If no DVI source is available, the next best video signal is available by connecting your device
to the projector with a Component Video (not to be confused with composite Video) cable.
Digital TV tuner and DVD players output Component Video natively, so if available on your
devices, they should be your connection method of choice in preference to S-Video or
(composite) Video.
See "Connecting a Component Video source device" on page 27 for how to connect the
projector to a component video device.
Better video quality
The S-Video method provides a better quality analog video than standard composite Video.
If you have both composite Video and S-Video output terminals on your Video source
device, you should elect to use the S-Video option.
See "Connecting an S-Video source device" on page 28 for how to connect the projector to
an S-Video device.
Least video quality
Composite Video is an analog video and will result in a perfectly acceptable, but less than
optimal result from your projector, being the least video quality of the available methods
described here.
See "Connecting a composite Video source device" on page 29 for how to connect the
projector to a composite Video device.
Connecting Audio
The projector has two built-in speakers which are designed to provide audio functionality
accompanying data presentations for business purposes. It is not designed for, nor intended
for audio reproduction use as might be expected in home theatre or home cinema
applications.
If you have a separate sound system, you will most likely want to connect the audio output
of your Video source device to that sound system, instead of to the projector.
The audio connections illustrated in the following sections are provided for informational
purposes only. You need not connect audio to the projector if there is an alternate sound
system available, or if audio is not required.
Connection
25
Connecting a DVI source device
The projector provides a DVI-I input socket that allows you to connect it to a DVI source
device like DVD player, or a VGA output device like notebook or desktop computer.
There are three types of DVI connector: DVI-A, DVI-D, and DVI-I. The DVI-I socket is an
integrated connector which supports both formats: DVI-A, and DVI-D.
DVI-A format is used to carry a DVI signal to an analog (VGA) display, or vice-versa.
Although some signal quality is lost from the signal conversion, it still transmits higher
picture quality than standard VGA connection.
DVI-D format is used to directly carry a digital signal to a digital display without signal
conversion. The pure digital connection provides faster and higher image quality than
analog connection, due to the nature of the digital format.
DVI-A and DVI-D formats are non-interchangeable. You cannot connect a DVI-A format
connector to a DVI-D equipment. Make sure what kind of format you need before you
purchase the cable. Or you can purchase a DVI-I cable which will be more useful in any type
of DVI connection situations.
Examine your source device to determine if it has an unused DVI or VGA (D-Sub) output
socket available:
If so, you can continue with this procedure.
If not, you will need to reassess which method you can use to connect to the device.
To connect the projector to a DVI source device through a DVI cable:
For information on connecting a DVI source device to a computer through a VGA to DVI-A
cable, see "Connecting a computer" on page 22.
1.
Take the DVI (DVI-D or DVI-I) cable and connect one end to the DVI output socket
of the DVI source device.
2.
Connect the other end of the cable to the DVI-I signal input socket on the projector.
3.
If you wish to make use the projector speakers, take a suitable audio cable and connect
one end of the cable to the audio output sockets of the video device, and the other end
to the PC Audio socket or Audio L/R sockets on the projector.
Once connected, the audio can be controlled by the remote control (Volume +/-) or
projector On-Screen Display (OSD) menus. See "Volume", "Treble", "Bass", and
"Mute" on page 45 for details.

Operation
Selecting the aspect ratio
The "aspect ratio" is the ratio of the image width to the image height. Most analog TV and
computers are in 4:3 ratio, which is the default for this projector, and digital TV is usually in
16:9 ratio.
You can change the projected image ratio (no matter what aspect the source is) by pressing
ASPECT on the remote control. Select an aspect ratio to suit the format of the signal and
your display requirements.
When the selected input source is YPbPr, YCbCr, DVI-D, S-Video, or Video, there are two
aspect ratios available. You can press ASPECT once to show the current setting and press
again to change the current setting. Or you can go to
Left/
Image > Auto Resize and press
Right on the projector or remote control to switch between the two options.
In the pictures below, the grey portions are inactive areas and the white portions are active
areas.
1.
2.
4:3: Scales an image so that it is displayed in the center of the
screen with a 4:3 aspect ratio. This is most suitable for 4:3 images
like computer monitors, standard definition TV, and 4:3 aspect
DVD movies, as it displays them without aspect alteration.
16:9 (default): Scales an image so that it is displayed in the center
of the screen with a 16:9 aspect ratio. This is most suitable for
images which are already in a 16:9 aspect, like high definition TV,
as it displays them without aspect alteration.
16:9 aspect ratio is only sourced through the Component Video input
when being fed an appropriate 16:9 aspect signal. See "Connecting a Component Video
source device" on page 27 and "Obtaining a preferred projected image size" on page 19 for
details.
When the selected input source is Analog RGB, DVI-A, or DVI-D, pressing ASPECT sets the
auto-resize function on or off, or sets the image to 16:9 ratio.
You can press ASPECT once to show the current setting and press repeatedly to change the
current setting. Or you can go to
Image > Auto Resize and press
the projector or remote control to switch between the three options.

Right on
On: This is the default for the projector. The pixel resolution of the input signal is
converted to the native resolution of the projector (1024 x 768). For input signals with
lower resolutions, gaps in the pixels are automatically interpolated into the image
before being projected. This may distort the image clarity. If the resolution of the
source image is the same as the projector's (1024 x 768), setting On has no effects.
Off: The image is projected as its original resolution, with no pixel conversion. For
input signals with lower resolutions, the projected image will display smaller than if
resized to full screen. You could adjust the zoom setting or move the projector towards
the screen to increase the image size if necessary. You may also need to refocus the
projector after making these adjustments.
16:9: Scales an image so that it is displayed in the center of the screen with a 16:9 aspect
ratio.

Hiding the image
In order to draw the audience's full attention to the
presenter or other media, you can use BLANK to hide
the projected image when needed. The word 'BLANK'
appears at the bottom right corner of the screen while
the image is hidden. When this function is activated
with a valid audio input connected, the audio can still
be heard. Pressing any key on the projector or remote
control restores the image.
You can set the blank time in the
Control >
Setup > Blank Time menu allowing the projector to
shut down automatically after a period of time when
there is no action taken on the blank screen.
Do not block the projection lens from projecting as this could cause the blocking object to
become heated and deformed or even cause a fire.

Maintenance
Care of the projector
Your projector needs little maintenance. The only thing you need to do on a regular basis is
to keep the lens clean and to clean the dust filters to prevent overheating.
See "Cleaning the lens" and "Cleaning and replacing the dust filters" below for details.
Never remove any parts of the projector except the lamp and dust filter. Contact your dealer
if other parts need replacing.
Cleaning the lens
Clean the lens whenever you notice dirt or dust on the surface.
•
•
Use a canister of compressed air to remove dust.
If there is dirt or smears, use lens-cleaning paper or moisten a soft cloth with lens
cleaner and gently wipe the lens surface.
Never rub the lens with abrasive materials.
Cleaning the projector case
Before you clean the case, turn the projector off using the proper shutdown procedure as
described in "Shutting down the projector" on page 40.
•
•
To remove dirt or dust, wipe the case with a soft, dry, lint-free cloth.
To remove stubborn dirt or stains, moisten a soft cloth with water and a neutral pH
detergent. Then wipe the case.
Never use wax, alcohol, benzene, thinner or other chemical detergents. These can damage the
case.
Storing the projector
If you need to store the projector for an extended time, please follow the instructions below:
•
•
•
•
Make sure the temperature and humidity of the storage area are within the
recommended range for the projector. Refer to "Specifications" on page 57 or consult
your dealer about the range.

Transporting the projector
It is recommended that you ship the projector with its original packing or equivalent. When
you carry the projector yourself, please use the original box or provided soft carry case.
Cleaning and replacing the dust filters
It is necessary to clean the dust filters periodically. If the filters are not cleaned, they can
become clogged with dust and prevent proper ventilation. This can cause overheating and a
malfunction of the projector.
48
Maintenance
A warning message like the one pictured to the
right will be displayed for 10 seconds every 300
hours of use to remind you to clean the filters.
IMPORTANT: Please ensure that the projector is
properly shutdown before removing the filters
for cleaning or replacement.

Rear filter
2.
Access to the rear dust filter is located on the left side of
the projector towards the rear. Use your thumb or finger
to pull it out from the side as illustrated below.
3.
To clean the filters, use a small vacuum cleaner
designed for computers and other office equipment,
or use a soft brush (such as a clean artist's
paintbrush) to gently sweep the dust away. Refit and
align the filter sponge to sit snugly within the filter
frame for the front filter, so that no obvious gaps are
visible around the edges between the edge of the filter
sponge and the plastic filter frame housing.
