pursuant to Part 15 of FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against
harmful interference when the equipment is operated in a commercial environment. This equipment
generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance
with the instruction manual, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. Operation of
this equipment in a residential area is likely to cause harmful interference in which case the user will

TO THE OWNER
As the owner of a new Boxlight CP-14t, you are probably eager to try out your new projector. Before you do,
we suggest that your spend a little time reading this manual to familiarize yourself with the operating
procedures so that you will receive maximum satisfaction from the many features included in your new
projector.
This owner's manual will acquaint you with your projector's features. Reading it will help us too. Through the
years, we have found that many service requests were not caused by problems with our projectors. They
were caused by problems that could have been prevented, if the owner had followed the instructions in the
manual.
You can often correct operating problems yourself. If your projector fails to work properly, see
"TROUBLESHOOTING" section on pages 36 ~ 37 and try the solution marked for each problem.
