Introduction
11
Positioning your projector
Choosing a location
Your projector is designed to be installed in one of two possible installation locations:
1.
Floor in front of screen; or
2.
Floor at rear of screen
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.
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. 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 Advance > Mirror menu
after you turn the projector on.
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 centre 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 composite Video being fed a 16:9 aspect
12
Positioning your projector
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 centre 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).
You can see from the diagram on page 15, that this type of projection causes the bottom edge
of the projected image to be vertically offset from the horizontal plane of the projector. 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 (see "Screen size chart" on page
15) to assist you in determining the ideal location for your projector. There are two
dimensions to consider, the perpendicular horizontal distance from the centre of the screen
(projection distance), and the vertical offset height of the projector from the horizontal edge
of the screen (offset).
How to determine the position of the projector for a given
screen size
1.
2.
Select your screen size.
Refer to the table on page 15 and find the closest match to your screen size in the left
columns labelled '4:3 Screen Diagonal' and '4:3 Aspect in mm'. 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 centre 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 4757 mm
and with a vertical offset of 229 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 25 for keystone correction.
Positioning your projector
13
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 on page 15 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
diameter 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 4.5m (4500mm), the closest match in
the Average column is 4682mm. Looking across this row shows that a 3000mm (3m) screen
is required. If you can only obtain imperial sized screens, the listed screen sizes on either side
of the 3m screen are the 9' and 10' screens.
Checking the min and max projection distance values for the these (9' & 10') sizes, indicates
that the 4.5m measured projection distance will fit these screens too. The projector can be
adjusted (using the zoom control) to display on these different screen sizes at that projection
distance. Be aware that these different screens have different vertical offset values.

Connecting Video source devices
This section describes how to connect the projector to Video source devices using video
cables. Video cable connections are recommended for Video presentations.
This projector also supports data (graphic) "PC" connection using wireless local area network
(WLAN) connection. WLAN connection is not recommended for Video presentations.
See"Using the wireless functions" on page 28.
You can connect your projector to various Video source devices that provide any one of the
following output sockets:
•
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 Component Video (not to be confused with
composite Video). Digital TV tuner and DVD players output Component Video natively, so
if available on your devices, this should be your connection method of choice in preference
to (composite) Video.
See "Connecting a Component Video source device" on page 18 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 19 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 20 for how to connect the
projector to a composite Video device.
Connection

Using the wireless functions
Your projector provides wireless connectivity that allows one or multiple wireless enabled
client PCs to connect to the projector. The initial wireless connection process takes two
steps:
•
•
Prepare your computer for wireless connection. This includes installing Wireless
Wizard and if necessary, configuring the wireless connection settings of your computer
manually.
Use Wireless Wizard to connect the computer to the projector.
When presenting via wireless connection, static screen images are captured on the computer
and sent to the projector for display. This necessarily involves some processing power on the
computer. Therefore, this format is unsuitable for movies and large animated graphics. They
will appear jerky.
Refer to “Preparing your computer for wireless connection” below for more information.
About wireless connection modes and channels
Your projector is compatible with the three most popular wireless local area network
(Wireless LAN or WLAN) standards defined by IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics
Engineers): 802.11 a, 802.11 b and 802.11 g. These standards are referred to in this manual
as wireless connection modes.
The 802.11 b mode has a maximum raw data transfer rate of 11 Mbit per second (Mbps),
while the 802.11 g mode has a faster speed of 54 Mbps, and is backward compatible with the
802.11 b mode. The 802.11 a mode also allows 54 Mbps data transmission, but operates at a
different band and is not backward compatible with the 802.11 b and 802.11 g modes. You
need to use the MODE/SWAP button on the projector, or the SWAP button on the remote
control to select a mode that matches that supported by the computer you want to connect.
In order to prevent interference when multiple wireless connections are used in close
proximity, each wireless connection mode allows operation in different channels. For
example, two 802.11 b networks can work simultaneously without interference under
different channels. You can use the AUTO/CH. button on the projector, or the CH. button
on the remote control to select a channel. Note that the channels that are available for use in
a particular country differ according to the regulations of that country.

*About color temperatures:
There are many different shades that are considered to be “white” for

color is known as the “color temperature”. A white color with a low color
temperature appears to be reddish white. A white color with a high color
temperature appears to have more blue in it.

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.
Never remove any parts of the projector except the lamp. 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 "Shutdown" on page 27 and unplug the power cord.
•
•
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.

Maintenance
45
Calculation of lamp hour
When the projector is in operation, the duration (by hours) of lamp usage is automatically
calculated by the built-in timer. The method of calculating the equivalent lamp hour is as
follows:
Total (equivalent) lamp hour = hours used in Economic mode + hours used in normal
mode
See "Economic Mode (Off)" on page 43 for more information on Economic mode.
The lamp hour in Economic mode is calculated as 2/3 of that in normal mode. That is, using
the projector in Economic mode helps to extend the lamp hour by 1/3.
Warning message
When the Lamp indicator lights up red or a message appears suggesting it is time to replace
the lamp, please install a new lamp or consult your dealer. An old lamp may cause a
malfunction in the projector and in some instances the lamp may explode.
For more detailed information on projector warnings, please refer to"Indicators" on page 49.
The Lamp indicator light and Temperature warning light will light up if the lamp becomes too
hot. Turn the power off and let the projector cool for 45 minutes. If the Lamp or Temp indicator
still lights up after turning the power back on, please contact your dealer.
The following Lamp warning displays will remind you to change the lamp.
