Setting Up the Projector
Follow the instructions in this section to choose a location for the projector, connect the
cables, and display and adjust the image.
Choosing a Location
You can install the projector for various viewing setups, as shown below.
Front/Ceiling
Front
Rear/Ceiling
Rear
If you install the projector in a rear or overhead position, you’ll need to flip and/or mirror the
image by selecting the correct Projection option (see page 18). For overhead projection, you’ll
also need to install the optional ceiling mount bracket (see page 10 for ordering information).
For all setups, it’s best to place the projector at
a height where its lens is between the top and
bottom of the screen. That way, you can keep
the projector level and use the vertical lens
shift knob to position the image. This
produces the best-looking picture.
If you place the projector above or below
screen level, you’ll have to tilt it up or down to
aim the image at the screen; this distorts the shape of the image, but you can correct its shape
using the projector’s Keystone function (see page 19).
13
If you place the projector off to the side, aim it straight ahead (rather than at the center of the
screen), then use the horizontal lens shift knob to center the image. Do not place the projector
farther to the left or right than the edge of the screen, or you will not be able to project a
square (or rectangular) image.
Vertical lens shift knob
Horizontal lens shift knob
The maximum size of the image is determined by the distance from the projector’s lens to the
screen. Depending on how you use the Zoom and other settings, the actual size may be
smaller. Use this table as a rough guide for projector placement:
Projection distance
Maximum image size (16:9)
2.9 feet
30 in. (26 × 14 in.)
3.9 feet
40 in. (34 × 19 in.)
5.9 feet
60 in. (52 × 29 in.)
7.9 feet
80 in. (69 × 39 in.)
9.9 feet
100 in. (87 × 49 in.)
19.9 feet
200 in. (174 × 98 in.)
29.9 feet
300 in. (261 × 147 in.)
Also keep these considerations in mind:
14
■
Make sure there is plenty of space for ventilation around and under the projector. Do not
set the projector on top of loose materials that could block the vents underneath.
■
Make sure the projector is within 10 feet of a grounded electrical outlet or extension cord.
Connecting the Cables
You can connect the projector to any type of video equipment, such as a VCR, DVD player,
HDTV tuner, cable or satellite box, video game console, camcorder, or digital camera. You
can also connect it to a desktop or laptop PC or Apple® Macintosh system.
You can connect up to four pieces of equipment at the same time, as shown in this table:

Basic Operation
Make sure the projector is set up as described on page 13, then follow the instructions below
to turn it on and display an image.
Turning On the Projector
1. Remove the lens cap.
2. Press the On button on the remote control, or press the
Power button on the projector.
Turn on the projector
Note: If this is your first time using the remote control,
make sure batteries are installed as described on page 50.
To keep children from turning on the projector, you can use
the projector’s Child Lock (see page 25).
The projector takes about 30 seconds to warm up and
display an image. If you don’t see a picture, you may
need to change the image source as described on the
next page.
21
Turning the Projector Off
To turn off the projector, press the Off button on the remote control (or press the Power
button on the projector twice).
Let the projector cool while the Ppower light flashes red (about 30 seconds). Once the light
stops flashing and stays on, it’s safe to unplug the projector.
Caution: Turn the projector off when not in use. Continuous 24-hour-a-day use may reduce its
overall life. Never unplug the projector without pressing the Off button and letting it cool, or you
could damage the projector and reduce lamp life.

To temporarily turn off the image and darken the screen (without turning off the projector), press
the Blank button. Press the Blank button again to return to normal viewing.
22
Choosing the Aspect Ratio
Composite and S-video signals are sized automatically to fit on your screen when Auto is
selected as the Aspect setting. If you’re viewing a component video signal, you may need to
change the size of the image (or aspect ratio) by pressing the Aspect button on the remote
control.
■
If your video source is connected to the projector’s Video or S-Video port, select Auto to
automatically display your image in the correct size.
■
If the Auto option is unavailable (when the source is connected to the Input A or B port),
you’ll most likely want to choose one of these settings:
Normal for standard TV broadcasts, computer images, or images having a 4:3 aspect
ratio.
Zoom for images recorded in 16:9 (wide-screen) format.
4:3 image using Normal setting
16:9 image using Zoom setting
On occasion, you may wish to select one of these options:
■
Squeeze for DVDs or video recordings made in a compressed (or anamorphic) 16:9
format, sometimes called “Squeeze Mode.”
■
Through if your image is smaller than 1280 × 720 pixels and you want to display it at its
original pixel size without resizing it to fit on the screen.
■
Squeeze Through if your image is recorded in Squeeze Mode, is smaller than
1280 × 720 pixels, and you want to display it at its original pixel size.
Note: If you display a 4:3 image using the Zoom setting, the edges of the image will be cut off. You
can use the Zoom Caption option to resize and reposition the image to your liking (see page 35).
For details on how the projector resizes the picture size when you choose an Aspect setting, see
page 66.
23
Choosing the Color Mode
You can change the Color Mode to automatically adjust brightness, contrast, and color,
letting you quickly optimize the projected image for various lighting environments. You can
also select a different color mode for each input source—which is useful if you view different
types of images from different sources. (For example, you might set the S-Video source to
Living Room if it’s usually used for watching movies, and then set the Video source to
Dynamic for playing video games.)
Select the image source you want to adjust, then press the Color Mode button on the remote
control. Choose from these settings:
■
Dynamic for projecting in bright rooms; images retain their natural color.
■
Living Room for projecting in rooms with subdued lighting; images retain their natural
color.
■
Natural for projecting in darkened rooms; increases contrast and makes flesh tones
appear more natural.
■
Theatre for projecting movies with dark scenes.
■
sRGB for projecting computer images that conform to the sRGB color standard.
Note: You can fine-tune the color and other image quality settings using the projector’s menu
system (see page 29) or the Cinema Color Editor software (see page 39). You can also create your
own customized groups of settings (see page 33).
24

Adjusting the Image Quality
Before fine-tuning the image using these adjustments, make sure you have already selected the
best Color Mode for your picture and viewing environment, as described on page 24. The
Color Mode adjusts various settings to approximately correct levels, simplifying your
adjustment of the picture.
Most image quality settings are saved independently for each input source (Video, S-Video,
Input A, Input B). After you finish adjusting the settings for one input source, be sure to
switch to each additional input source you’ll be using and make any necessary adjustments.
Brightness and Contrast Settings
The Brightness setting controls how much light is produced by the projector lamp, and the
other settings listed below control how the projector interprets the light and dark areas of
the picture.
Adjust the Brightness first, then fine-tune the image with the other settings, as described.
■
Brightness
Image ! Picture Quality ! Brightness
Adjust the brightness so it’s suitable for your viewing conditions. For example, if you’re
projecting in a brightly lit room or onto an especially large screen, you may need to
increase the brightness. Decrease the brightness for dark rooms or small screens; this also
reduces power consumption and fan noise, and helps to prolong the life of the lamp.
■
Setup Level
Setting ! Advanced ! Setup Level
For compatibility with most video equipment sold in the United States, set to 7.5%. This
adjusts the threshold at which dark areas of the image are rendered black. Check your
video equipment’s specifications to be sure of the correct setting.
■
Input Level/Contrast
Image ! Picture Quality ! Input Adjustment ! Input Level/Contrast
Adjust the Input Level to set the overall brightness of the image. Then adjust the contrast,
as needed.
If you cannot access the Input Level and Contrast settings, highlight Input Adjustment

button, then choose Input
Level/Contrast in the sub-menu.
29
■
White Level/Black Level

parts of the image.
If you cannot access the White Level and Black Level settings, highlight Input
button, then choose White
Adjustment (the first item in the menu list) and press the
Level/Black Level in the sub-menu.
Sharpness and Picture Quality Settings
If the image looks fuzzy, or if it contains noise or flickering, you can use these settings to
correct it.
■
Sharpness

viewing still images (such as computer graphics or digital camera photos) or when pausing
videos, turn the setting on to convert interlaced mode to progressive.
■
Noise Reduction
Setting ! Advanced ! Noise Reduction
Leave this setting off, unless viewing images from a weak signal with a lot of noise.
Turning the setting on suppresses interference and makes images appear softer (available
only if the image source is set to Video or S-Video).
30
Color Settings
If the image colors don’t look correct, you can adjust them using these settings. Use the first
three settings described below to make the most visible changes. If you only need to make
slight adjustments, you can fine-tune the picture with the last two settings.
Note: You can also make color adjustments by attaching a PC or laptop to the projector and using
the Cinema Color Editor software. See page 39.

31
Adjustments for Computer Images
In addition to the settings described above, you can adjust the Tracking and Sync settings for
analog RGB computer images. Normally, these settings are adjusted automatically by the
projector. If you notice that the image is blurry or contains dark vertical bands, you may need
to adjust the settings yourself.
■

Saving and Resetting Menu Selections
Once you’ve adjusted the picture settings, you can save them as a group using the Memory
feature. This lets you easily recall them, and switch from one group of settings to another. You
can save up to six groups of settings.
If necessary, you can use the projector’s reset options to restore its factory-default settings.
You can clear all the settings, or just the settings in a specific menu.
Creating Memory Settings
After adjusting the picture to your liking, you can save your settings as a group in the
projector’s memory. This stores all the image quality settings described on pages 29
through 32, plus the Aspect and Color Mode settings (pages 23 and 24).

Maintenance
Your projector needs little maintenance. All you need to do on a regular basis is keep the lens
clean. You also need to clean the air filter periodically to prevent overheating.
Warning: Before you clean any part of the projector, turn it off and unplug the power cord.
Never open any cover on the projector, except the lamp and filter covers. Dangerous electrical
voltages in the projector can injure you severely. Do not try to service this product yourself,
except as specifically explained in this User’s Guide.
The only parts you should replace are the lamp and air filter. If another part needs replacing,
contact your dealer or a qualified servicer.
Cleaning the Lens
Clean the lens whenever you notice dirt or dust on the surface.
■
Use a canister of compressed air to remove dust.
■
To remove dirt or smears, use lens-cleaning paper. If necessary, moisten a soft cloth with
lens cleaner and gently wipe the lens surface.
Caution: Never rub the lens with abrasive materials.
Cleaning the Projector Case
Before you clean the case, turn off the projector and unplug the power cord.
■
To remove dirt or dust, wipe the case with a soft, dry, lint-free cloth.

■
Never look into the projector lens when the lamp is turned on; the bright light can
damage your eyes. Never let children look into the lens when it is on.
■
Never open any cover on the projector, except the lamp and filter covers. Dangerous
electrical voltages inside the projector can severely injure you.
■
Except as specifically explained in this User’s Guide, do not attempt to service this product
yourself. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.
■
The projector and its accessories come packaged in plastic bags. Keep plastic bags away
from small children to avoid any risk of suffocation.
■
Don’t place the projector on an unstable cart, stand, or table. Also, don’t use the projector
near water or sources of heat.
■
Use the type of power source indicated on the projector. If you’re not sure of the power
available, consult your dealer or power company.
■
Place the projector near a wall outlet where the plug can be easily unplugged.
■
Don’t insert the plug into an outlet with dust present, and insert the plug firmly into the
outlet. Failure to do so could result in sparks or fire.
■
Don’t overload wall outlets, extension cords, or integral convenience receptacles. This can
cause fire or electric shock.
■
Don’t block the slots and openings in the projector case. They provide ventilation and
prevent the projector from overheating. Don’t operate the projector on a sofa, rug, or
other soft surface, or in a closed-in cabinet unless proper ventilation is provided.
■
Never push objects through the cabinet slots or spill liquid into the projector.
■
Unplug the projector from the wall outlet and refer servicing to qualified service
personnel under the following conditions: when the power cord or plug is damaged or
frayed; if liquid has been spilled into the projector, or if it has been exposed to rain or
water; if it doesn’t operate normally when you follow the operating instructions, or if it
exhibits a distinct change in performance, indicating a need for service; if it has been
dropped or the housing has been damaged.
69
■
Don’t place the projector where the cord can be walked on. This may result in fraying or
damage to the plug.
■
Unplug the projector from the wall outlet before cleaning. Use a damp cloth for cleaning.
Do not use liquid or aerosol cleaners.
■
This product includes a lamp component that contains mercury. Please consult your state
and local regulations regarding proper disposal or recycling, and do not place in the trash.
■
Unplug the projector during lightning storms or when not in use for extended periods.
■
Don’t place the projector or remote control on top of heat-producing equipment.
■
If you use the projector in a country other than where you purchased it, use the correct
power cord for that country.
■
Don’t stand on the projector or place heavy objects on it.
■
Don’t use the projector outside of the required temperature range of 41 to 95 °F (5 to
35 °C). Doing so may cause an unstable display and could lead to projector damage.
■
Don’t store the projector outside of the required temperature range of 14 to 140 °F
(-10 to 60 °C) or in direct sunlight for long periods of time. Doing so may cause damage
to the case.
