Make sure that the specifications of the computer you are using for connection meet the following two requirements. [The computer must have a video signal output port] Make sure that the computer has a port that outputs a video signal. A port that outputs a video signal is called an "RGB port", "monitor port", or "video port" or the like. Consult the section describing "connection to an external monitor" or the like in the instruction manual for the computer that you are using, and make sure that the computer has a video signal output port. Computers with an integrated monitor and other components as well as notebook personal computers may require separate purchase of an external output port. In other cases, an external output port cannot be attached. [The resolution and frequency of the computer must be within the range of specifications shown on the following page] The resolution and frequency of the video signal output by your computer must be compatible with your projector in order to allow projection (some computers allow partial projection, but clear projection cannot be obtained). Check the resolution and frequency of the video signal in the instruction manual of the computer you are using for projection. 22 EMP-70_50_e.book 23 ページ ２００１年１月９日 火曜日 午前９時２５分 Compatible Mode Chart for Connectable Computers If the resolution and frequency of the video signals which are output from the computer do not correspond to any of the values in the table below, those video signals cannot be projected. (In some cases it may be possible to project such signals, but they will not produce clear images.) Check the instruction manual for the computer for details on the resolution and frequency of the video signals. Furthermore, some computers may let you change the output resolution. If this is the case, change the resolution to a value in the table below.

For details, refer to other available publications. Term Description A/V Mute Refers to temporary stoppage of audio and video. Your projector provides this function when the A/V Mute button is pressed. When the A/V Mute button is pressed again or audio volume is adjusted, this function is released. SVGA Refers to a 800-pixel (Pix) horizontal x 600-pixel (Pix) vertical display signal for an IBM PC/AT-compatible (DOS/V) computer. SXGA Refers to a 1280-pixel (Pix) horizontal x 1024-pixel (Pix) vertical display signal for an IBM PC/AT-compatible (DOS/V) computer. Sync (synchronization) Signals output by a computer are output at a certain predetermined frequency. If the frequency of your projector cannot match that frequency, a clear image cannot be obtained. Matching of signal phases (peak offset) is referred to as synchronization (synch). If synchronization is not achieved, a projected image displays jitters, blurring, and horizontal noise. USB An abbreviation for universal serial bus, an interface for connecting a personal computer with a relatively low-speed peripheral device. VGA Refers to a 640-pixel (Pix) horizontal x 480-pixel (Pix) vertical display signal for an IBM PC/AT-compatible (DOS/V) computer. XGA Refers to a 1024-pixel (Pix) horizontal x 768-pixel (Pix) vertical display signal for an IBM PC/AT-compatible (DOS/V) computer. Cool-Down After the Power button is pressed and the lamp goes out, lamp cooling is continued. After the lamp goes out, a cooling fan spins, and operational buttons become inactive. Cool-down time takes about 2 minutes. Contrast The enhancing or weakening of differences in color lightness and darkness that provides a sharper or softer view of characters and images. This adjustment is referred to as contrast adjustment. Tracking Signals output by a computer are output at a certain predetermined frequency. If the frequency of your projector cannot match that frequency, a clear image cannot be obtained. Matching of signal frequencies is referred to as matching tracking. When tracking is not matched, a projected image displays broad vertical bands. 74 EMP-70_50_e.book 75 ページ ２００１年１月９日 火曜日 午前９時２５分 8.4 Index [A] A/V Device . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 25 A/V Mute . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 52 A/V Mute Button . . . . . . . 14, 43 About Menu . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 54 Adjusting . . . . . . . . . . . . . 32, 34 Advanced Menu . . . . . . . . . . . 53 Air Intake Vent . . . . . . . . . . . 12 Aspect Ratio . . . . . . . . . . . . . 48 Audio In Terminal . . . . . . 13, 24 Audio Input . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 49 Audio Menu . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 49 Audio Out Terminal . . . . . 13, 27 Auto Button . . . . . . . . . . . 14, 34 Auto Setup . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 48 [B] Battery Cover . . . . . . . . . . 14, 16 Brightness . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 48 [C] Ceiling . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 53 Color . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 48 Color Setting . . . . . . . . . . . . . 53 Compatible Mode . . . . . . . . . 23 Computer . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 22 Computer Button . . . . . . . 14, 30 Computer Terminal . . . . . 13, 24 Connecting . . . . . . . . . . . . 24, 25 Contrast . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 48 Cursor Speed . . . . . . . . . . . . . 50 Cursor/Stamp . . . . . . . . . . 42, 50 [E] Effect Button . . . . . . . . . . 14, 42 Effect Menu . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 50 Enter Button . . . . . . . . 14, 38, 46 Esc Button . . . . . . . . . 14, 38, 46 External Audio Device . . . . . .27 External Dimensions. . . . . . . . .78 E-Zoom Button . . . . . . . . .14, 40 [F] Focus Ring . . . . . . . . . . . . .12, 32 Foot Lever . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .12 Freeze Button . . . . . . . . . . .14, 43 Frequency . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .54 Front Foot . . . . . . . . . . . . .12, 32 [G] Gamma . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .48 [H] Help Button . . . . . . . . .13, 14, 44 Help Screens . . . . . . . . . . . . . .44 Horizontal Bar . . . . . . . . . .42, 50 [I] Indicator . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .14 Initial Settings . . . . . . . . . . . . .56 Input Signal . . . . . . . . . . . .48, 54 Input/Output Terminals . . . . . .12 Inserting Batteries . . . . . . . . . .16 [K] Keystone . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .51 Keystone (Select) Button . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .13, 33 [L] L/R Audio Terminals . . . . .13, 25 Lamp . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .54 Lamp Cover . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .12 Lamp Replacement . . . . . . . . .68 Language . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .53 Lens Cover . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .12 75 EMP-70_50_e.book 76 ページ ２００１年１月９日 火曜日 午前９時２５分 [M] Mac Mouse Cable . . . . . . . . . 39 Macintosh . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 39 Menu Button . . . . . . . . . . 14, 46 Mode . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 48, 54 Mouse Cable . . . . . . . . . . . . . 39 Mouse/Com Terminal . . . 13, 39 [N] No-signal . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 51 Notebook . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 31 [O] Operating Panel . . . . . . . . . . . 12 Operation Display Indicator . . . . . 12, 28, 29, 35, 58 Optional Parts . . . . . . . . . . . . 72 [P] Position . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 47 Power Button . . . . 13, 14, 29, 34 Power Cord . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 28 Power Terminal . . . . . . . . 12, 28 Problem/Alarm Display Indicator . . . . . . . . . . . 12, 59, 68 Projection Distance . . . . . . . . 20 Prompt . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 51 PS/2 Mouse Cable . . . . . . . . . 39 [R] R/C On Off Button . . . 14, 29, 36 Rear Foot . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 12 Rear Projection . . . . . . . . . . . 53 Refresh Rate . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 54 Remote Control . . . . . . . . 14, 15 Remote Control Receiver . . . 12 Reset . . . . . . . 48, 49, 50, 52, 53 Reset All Menu . . . . . . . . . . . 55 Reset Lamp Timer . . . . . . . . . 54 Resolution . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 54 76 [S] Screen Size . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 20 Setting Menu . . . . . . . . . . . . . 51 Setup Instructions . . . . . . . . . 19 Sharpness . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 48 Shipping Instructions . . . . . . . 73 Sleep Mode . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 52 Source (Enter) Button . . . 13, 30 Speaker . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 12 Special Notes on Setup . . . . . 18 Specifications . . . . . . . . . . . . . 77 Storage . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 35 S-Video Button . . . . . . . . 14, 30 S-Video Terminal . . . . . . 13, 25 SYNC Mode . . . . . . . . . . . . . 54 SYNC Polarity . . . . . . . . . . . . 54 Sync. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 47 [T] Term . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
