Usage Guidelines
• Do not look directly into the projection lens when the lamp is
turned on. The bright light may harm your eyes.
• Do not block the grills on the projector. Restricting the air flow
can cause it to overheat and turn off. If this happens, you must
wait a minute before attempting to turn it back on.
• Handle the projector as you would any product with glass
components. Be especially careful not to drop it.
• Avoid leaving the projector in direct sunlight or extreme cold
for extended periods of time. If this happens, allow it to reach
room temperature before use.
• Transport the projector in a vendor-approved hard or soft case.
Part numbers for these cases are listed on page 43.

• The projector must be within 10 feet (3 m) of your power
source and within 6 feet (1.8 m) of your computer.
• If you want to project from behind a translucent screen, set
up the projector behind your screen. See “Rear Projection”
on page 28 to reverse the image.
• If you are installing the projector on the ceiling, refer to the
installation guide that comes with the Ceiling Mount Kit for
more information. To turn the image upside down, see
“Ceiling Projection” on page 27. The Ceiling Mount Kit is
sold separately, see “Optional Accessories” on page 43.
2 Position the projector the desired distance from the screen.
• The distance from the lens of the projector to the screen and
the zoom setting determine the size of the projected image.

Turning Off the Projector
If you want to turn off the projector for a short period of time,
press the standby button on the keypad or remote. This blanks the
screen for fifteen minutes, but keeps the projector running. (You
can change the amount of time the projector stays in standby
mode; see “Standby Time” on page 27 for details.) After 15 minutes, the lamp goes out (the projector keeps running). To exit
standby mode, press the standby button again. (It may take several seconds for the projection lamp to reach full power and
project the image again.)
NOTE: To maximize lamp life,
allow the projector to run for at
least five minutes before turning
it off.
14
To completely power off the projector, press the Power button. If
you want to turn the lamp back on immediately, you must allow
about a minute for the lamp to cool. The lamp won’t light if it’s
too hot.
USING THE PROJECTOR
This section describes how to use and make adjustments to the
projector. It also provides a reference to the keypad and remote
buttons and the options available from the on-screen menus.
Basic Image Adjustment
1 Make sure you have powered up your equipment in the right
order (page 13).
2 If the image doesn’t display completely, zoom the image
(page 17), adjust the height of the projector (page 17) or center
the image by adjusting its horizontal or vertical position
(page 26). Be sure the projector lens is at a 90 degree angle to
the screen.
3 If the image is out of focus, rotate the focus lens (page 17).
4 If the image appears to shimmer or if it has blurry vertical
bars after you have adjusted the focus, turn Auto Image
(page 24) off and then back on to reset the automatic sync and
tracking. If that doesn’t clear up the image, turn Auto Image
off and adjust the sync (page 25) and/or the tracking
(page 25) manually.
5 If the colors don’t look right, adjust the brightness (page 21).
Using the Remote Control
To control the computer’s mouse from the projector’s remote or
keypad, you must connect the USB mouse connector on the computer cable to the computer. See page 10 for details.
The projector ships with a remote that has four function buttons,
a disk mouse and two mouse buttons, one on the top of the
remote and one on the bottom.
Point the remote control at the projection screen or at the front of
the projector (not at the computer). The range for optimum operation is about 25 feet. If you point the remote at the projection
screen, the distance to the screen and back to the projector must
be less than or equal to 25 feet. For best results, point the remote
directly at the projector.

If you are creating presentations in Microsoft® PowerPoint®, you
can use the remote’s mouse buttons to navigate through your
presentation while in Slide Show mode. To configure PowerPoint
for this, choose Options from the Tools menu, click the View Tab,
de-select the “Popup Menu on Right Mouse Click” option in the
Slide Show section, then click OK. Then, when you’re in PowerPoint’s Slide Show mode, a left click advances to the next slide
and a right click returns to the previous slide (other PowerPoint
modes are not affected).

Keystone
This option helps to keep the image square as the angle of projection is changed. To adjust the keystone, highlight Keystone, then
click the left or right mouse button. This option is available for
computer sources displaying their native resolutions only, SVGA
800x600 for the CD-454m/455m and XGA 1024x768 for the
CD-555m.

video sources only.
Auto Image. If you’re experiencing
problems, try turning your screen
saver off, then turning Auto Image
off and back on.
Auto Image
The projector automatically adjusts tracking, signal synchronization and vertical and horizontal position for most analog computers (Auto Image does not apply to video sources or digital
computer sources). If you want to adjust these features manually,
you must turn off Auto Image first by highlighting Auto Image in
the Image menu and clicking the left or right mouse button to
select “off”.
Resize
NOTE: When you connect an
HDTV source, the projector
automatically displays the image in
16x9 format.
24
This option works differently for computer and video sources.
For computer sources, Resize automatically resizes the image by
scaling it up or down. It only affects computer images that are not
the projector’s native resolution. When Resize is on, the projector
makes the best fit of the image to the computer screen. If you turn
Resize off (by highlighting it in the Image menu and clicking the
left or right mouse button to select “off”), the image may be either
cropped or too small for the screen.
For video sources, Resize allows you to select from among four
different re-sizing options. The default is Standard, which resizes
the image from its original version to fit a standard 4x3 aspect
ratio screen. Widescreen Letterbox preserves the 16x9 aspect ratio
of the original theater version, but the image is placed in a 4x3
space, so black bars appear at the top and bottom of the image.
Enhanced Widescreen also preserves the aspect ratio of the original theater version and is designed to be used with content that is
Enhanced for Widescreen TVs. This option yields more detail
than Widescreen Letterbox. Native reduces the Standard size to
match the height of Enhanced Widescreen.
Manual Sync
The projector adjusts signal synchronization automatically for
most computers. But if the projected computer image looks fuzzy
or streaked, try turning Auto Image off then back on again. If the
image still looks bad, try adjusting the signal synchronization
manually:
1 Turn Auto Image off.
2 Highlight Manual sync, then press the left or right mouse button repeatedly until the image is sharp and free of streaks.
Manual Tracking
The projector adjusts tracking automatically to match the video
signal from your computer. However, if the display shows evenly
spaced, fuzzy, vertical lines or if the projected image is too wide
or too narrow for the screen, try turning Auto Image off then back
on again. If the image is still bad, try adjusting the tracking manually:
1 Turn Auto Image off.
2 Highlight Manual tracking, then press the left or right mouse
button repeatedly until the fuzzy vertical bars are gone.
NOTE: The Manual Sync,
Manual Tracking, Horiz. Position and Vert. Position options
are available only for analog computer sources. The projector sets
these options automatically for digital computer and video sources.

Video Standard
When Video standard is set to Auto, the projector attempts to
pick the video standard (NTSC, NTSC 4.43, PAL, PAL-M, PAL-N,
PAL-60, or SECAM) automatically 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 might not look right or the image
might appear “torn.” If this happens, manually select a standard
by clicking the left or right mouse button and cycling through the
standards.
NOTE: If you already know the
video standard used in your geographical area, it’s often best to
manually select it.
Standby Time
This option lets you select how long the lamp stays on and the
blank screen is displayed when the projector enters standby
mode before the projector turns off. Select among instant, 1, 5, 10,
15 and 30 minutes and 1 and 2 hours by clicking the left or right
mouse button and cycling through the options.
Ceiling Projection
When you turn Ceiling Projection on, the projector turns the
image upside down for ceiling-mounted projection. Highlight
Ceiling Projection, then click the left or right mouse button to
turn this feature on and off.

Default Source
Default Source toggles among Computer 1 analog, Computer 1
digital, Computer 2, and Video. This determines which source the
projector checks first for active video during power-up. Highlight
Default Source and click the left or right mouse button to toggle
among the options.
Auto Source Select
This setting toggles between On and Off. When this feature is Off,
the projector defaults to the source selected in Default Source. To
display another source, you must manually select one by pressing the source button on the keypad or the computer or video button on the remote. When this feature is On, the projector
automatically finds the active source, checking the default source
first. Highlight Auto Source Select and click the left or right
mouse button to turn this feature on and off.
Plug and Play
This setting toggles between On and Off. When it is On, most
new computers will automatically recognize the projector, then
set the monitor resolution and refresh rate accordingly. You need
to set the Plug and Play setting to Off for the projector to display
properly on some older computers. The Plug and Play setting
does not affect video images.
If the projector’s display constantly changes between the computer image and the message, “Perfecting the image”, you may
need to turn Plug and Play Off.
Display Messages
This setting toggles between On and Off. When this feature is On,
status messages such as “No signal detected” or “Standby
Active” appear in the lower-right corner of the screen. Click the
left or right mouse button to turn this feature off and not see status messages.

Display Startup Screen
This setting toggles between On and Off. When this feature is On,
the startup screen appears when the projector starts up and
remains until an active source is detected. The startup screen contains information on contacting BOXLIGHT. Click the left or right

Using Video Mirroring with a PowerBook Computer
When you turn video mirroring (called SimulScan in newer PowerBooks—see below) on, the projector displays the same information that appears on your PowerBook’s built-in screen. When
video mirroring is off, the projector acts like a separate display.
To turn on video mirroring for the first time:
1 Open the Monitors control panel; click on Monitor 2.
2 Set the number of colors you want.
3 Open the Control Strip, then click on the monitor icon.
4 Select “Turn Video Mirroring On.”
Now you can turn video mirroring on and off from the Control
Strip without having to open the Monitors control panel again.
When using video mirroring and high color graphics such as
slide shows, the projected image occasionally might turn black
and white. If this happens, perform the following steps:
1 Turn off video mirroring.
2 Open the Monitors control panel.
3 Move the white menu bar to Monitor 2 to set the projector as
the primary monitor.
4 Restart the PowerBook.
Using SimulScan
Some newer PowerBooks display images on an external monitor
or projector differently than previous ones. When using
SimulScan, the projector displays the same information that
appears on your PowerBook
To select SimulScan:
1 Open the Control Panel, then double-click Monitors and
Sound.
2 In the Resolution list, choose the SimulScan mode, then click
OK.
3 If this changes your display settings, a dialog box appears.
Click OK to confirm the change.
