Appendix A:
Connecting to a Desktop
Computer
note
For instructions on
connecting to a laptop
computer or to external
speakers, see your User’s
Guide.
This appendix describes how to connect the projector to your
desktop computer and turn everything on. The projector must
be connected to a computer or a video source such as a VCR,
camcorder, digital camera, DVD player, or laser disc player
before it can project any images. You may also want to set up
the projector for one or more of the following:
■
Connect the mouse cable to use the remote control as a
wireless mouse. Except for some laptops, this disables your
computer’s mouse. You use the remote control’s pointer to
control the screen cursor.
■
Provide audio for one or both image sources. The audio
source can be the computer, video source, or another device
such as a stereo.
■
Connect to an external speaker or PA system to amplify the
audio (see your User’s Guide for instructions).
Positioning the Projector
Before you can set up the projector, you need to decide where
to place it. Keep the following in mind:
■
Place the projector on a sturdy, level surface.
■
Make sure the projector is within 10 feet of a grounded
electrical outlet or extension cord.
■
Place the computer and/or video source within 5 feet of the
projector.
■
Make sure the projector is at right angles to the screen.
Otherwise, your image will be distorted.
Connecting to a Desktop Computer 5
appendix.book Page 6 Tuesday, December 14, 1999 4:08 PM
note
It is easier to position the
projector when the screen is
directly in front of the room.
If the screen is placed
diagonally in a corner, it is
much more difficult to
position the projector
perpendicular to the screen
and get a non-distorted
image.
Most presenters find it convenient to place the projector (and
computer) in the front of the room. With this arrangement, the
projector is placed close to the screen. You need to raise the
front of the projector (by extending the legs) in order to
position the image high enough on the screen. Then you can
use the projector’s keystone control to correct the distortion
caused by tilting up the front of the projector.
The distance between the projector and the screen determines
the actual image size. Use the general guidelines in the table
below to determine the proper distance.

Identifying the Projector Ports
The following illustrations identify all the interface ports on the
back and side of the projector; you may want to refer to them as
you connect your computer or other equipment to the
projector.
Connecting to a PC Desktop
Computer
To connect the projector to your PC desktop computer, you
need to:
■
Connect the computer cable
■
Connect the audio cable (if you’ll be projecting with audio)
■
Connect the mouse cable (if you want to use the remote
control as a mouse)
If you connect the projector to your desktop computer, you
cannot view your images on the computer monitor.
Follow the steps in each section for the cables you need to
connect.

note
If you need maximum
volume (in a large
auditorium, for example),
you can also connect
external speakers or a public
address system to the
projector. See your User’s
Guide for instructions.
Connecting the Audio Cable
If your presentation includes sound effects or other types of
computer audio, you need to connect the audio cable.
1. Connect one end of the audio cable to the Audio In jack on
the projector.

2. Connect the other end of the audio cable to the speaker or
audio out port on your computer’s sound card.
Connecting the Cable for Remote Mouse
Control
Using the remote control as a wireless mouse gives you more
flexibility. You can deliver your presentation from anywhere in
the room and interact with the audience. You don’t need to
stand near your computer or near the projector.
You’ll use different cables and different ports on the projector,
depending on whether your computer has a round PS/2 mouse
port or a flat USB mouse port.

note
If you have an older
Macintosh, you may need to
use a Macintosh adapter
(available from Apple ®).
Check the documentation for
your Macintosh to determine
what type of connections are
available.
Before you start, make sure your projector, computer, and all
peripherals are all turned off.
1. Disconnect the monitor cable from the monitor port on the
back of your Macintosh.
2. Connect one end of the computer cable to the projector’s
Computer port.
3. Connect the other end to the monitor port on your
Macintosh.
