Welcome
The Epson
® PowerLite®
6100i is a versatile projector designed to
ensure that your presentations are easy and trouble-free, whether you
use it in the classroom or conference room. When space is limited,
you can project against a surface less than two and one-half feet away.
The projector’s keystone correction function allows you to correct
image distortion. In addition, the PowerLite 6100i offers outstanding
image quality, with up to 3500 lumens of brightness, a resolution of

Your Epson PowerLite projector can be connected to two computer
video sources at the same time, or four video sources. You can include
an independent sound channel for each source.
Use the remote control to take charge of your presentation. Freeze the
action, zoom in on part of the picture, or display a picture-in-picture
video. You can also use the remote as a pointer, or to draw on the
screen.
With the projector’s Easy Management™ system, you can use a
Windows® PC to remotely monitor and control the projector.
To prevent unauthorized use of your PowerLite 6100i, you can assign
a password, create a user logo which is displayed at startup to identify
the projector, and disable the projector’s buttons through the
Operation Lock feature. For more information about security features,

Setting Up the Projector
This chapter gives you basic information on setting up the projector:
where to position it and how to connect it to a video source (such as a
VCR or DVD player) or to a notebook or desktop computer.
Follow the instructions in this chapter on:
■
Positioning the projector
■
Connecting to video equipment
■
Connecting to a computer
■
Connecting an external monitor
■
Playing sound through the projector
13
Positioning the Projector
note
If you’re setting up the projector yourself and it isn’t already installed
in the classroom or conference room you’re using, you’ll probably
want to place it on a table in front of the screen, as shown on
page 15.low
You can mount the projector
on the ceiling, or place it
behind a translucent screen
for rear projection. See
page 111 for details.
This lets you stand in the front of the room, face the audience, and
remain close enough to the equipment to be able to control it. Try to
leave as much space as possible between the projector and the screen to
get a good-size image.
Use the figure below to help you determine placement. Image size
increases with distance, but can vary depending on how you position
the zoom ring and whether you’ve adjusted the image with other
settings.
Distance from screen
2.7 to 4.6 ft
5.7 to 9.4 ft
29.7 to 48.2 ft
Also keep these considerations in mind:
14
Setting Up the Projector
■
Place the projector on a sturdy, level surface.
■
Make sure there is plenty of space for ventilation around and
under the projector. Do not set the projector on top of loose
papers that could block the vents under the projector.
■
Make sure the projector is within 10 feet of a grounded electrical
outlet or extension cord.
Ideally, you should place the projector directly in front of the center of
the screen, facing it toward the screen squarely. The lens should be at
about the level of the bottom of the screen.
Screen
Projector
note
After positioning the
projector, you may want to
connect a Kensington
MicroSaver® anti-theft
device to the lock port on the
projector’s left side. You can
purchase this from Epson;
see “Optional Accessories” on
page 12.
You can also connect a
commercially available
anti-theft cable and lock to
the metal bar on the bottom
of the projector.
If you place the projector below screen level, you’ll have to tilt it up by
extending its feet. This causes the image to become “keystone” shaped,
but you can correct the distortion by pressing the
or
buttons
on the projector. See page 36 for detailed information about
correcting the image shape.
For instructions on installing the projector in a permanent location,
such as a classroom or conference room, see page 111.
Setting Up the Projector 15
Connecting to Video Equipment
You can connect up to four video sources to the projector at the same
time. Before starting, look at your video equipment to determine its
available video-output connections:

Turning On Your Equipment
Make sure your projector and other equipment are set up as described
in Chapter 1. Then follow the instructions below to start the projector
and display an image.
note
To shut down the projector,
see page 39. Shutting down
the projector correctly
prevents premature lamp
failure and possible damage
from overheating.
If you turn on any connected computer or video equipment before
starting the projector, this lets the projector automatically detect and
display the image source. If you turn on the projector first, or have
multiple pieces of connected equipment, you may have to select the
image source manually (see page 30).
Turning On the Projector
Follow these steps to turn on the projector:

an image begins to appear. When the PPower light stops flashing
and remains green (in about 20 seconds) the projector is ready
for use.
Never look into the lens
when the lamp is on. This
can damage your eyes, and is
especially dangerous for
children.
4. If you’ve connected a Windows-based computer to the projector,
you may see a New Hardware Wizard saying your computer has
found a plug-and-play monitor; if so, click Cancel.
Projecting 29
Selecting the Image Source
note

Appendix A: Projector
Installation
This appendix provides guidelines on installing the projector in a
permanent location, such as a theater or conference room.
Installation Guidelines
The projector can be installed for four different viewing setups: front
projection, ceiling mounting, rear projection onto a semi-transparent
screen, or rear/ceiling projection, as shown:
Front projection
Front/ceiling projection
Rear projection
Rear/ceiling projection
111
warning
When installing or
adjusting the ceiling
mount, do not use
adhesives to prevent the
screws from loosening and
do not use any type of oil or
lubricant. These may cause
the projector casing to
crack and the projector
may fall, causing serious
injury and serious damage
to the projector.
To project from overhead, you’ll need the optional ceiling mounting
hardware; see page 12 for ordering information. You’ll also need to
select Front/Ceiling or Rear/Ceiling in the projector’s Extended
menu to flip the image upside-down. To project from the rear, select
Rear (see page 59).
If you’re mounting the projector on the ceiling and you place it above
screen level, you’ll have to tilt it down to position the image on-screen.
This causes the image to lose its square shape. You can then correct
the distortion by using the Keystone function in the projector’s
menu system (see page 56) or by using the
or
buttons on the
projector’s control panel.
If you place the projector so that the lens is level with the bottom of
the screen, the image will be square and you won’t have to adjust it. If
you place the lens lower than the bottom of the screen, you may have
to tilt the projector upward if you want to fill the whole screen with
the image.
If you want to be able to control the projector’s settings from a remote
computer, see Chapter 5.
112
Appendix A: Projector Installation
Installing the Rear Cable Cover and
Lock
If you’re mounting the projector on the ceiling, you can install the
rear cable cover to enhance the cosmetic appearance of the system.
To install the cover, insert the cover’s tabs into the slots as shown,
then attach it with the two included screws.
For security purposes, you can also install a lock to ensure that the
cable cover is not removed.

Compatible Video Formats
The projector supports NTSC, PAL, and SECAM international video
standards, as well as the monitor display formats listed below.
To project images output from a computer, the computer’s video card
must be set at a refresh rate (vertical frequency) that’s compatible with
the projector; see the following table for compatible formats. As
noted below, some images are automatically resized to display in
the projector’s “native” format (XGA). In addition, the frequencies
of some computers may not allow images to display correctly; see

his appendix includes safety instructions and other important information
about your Epson PowerLite projector.
Important Safety Instructions
Follow these safety instructions when setting up and using the projector:
■
Do not place the projector on an unstable cart, stand, or table.
■
Do not use the projector near water or sources of heat.
■
Use the type of power source indicated on the projector. If you are 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.
■
Insert the projector’s three-wire grounding-type plug into a properly
grounded outlet. If you have a two-prong outlet, contact an electrician
to replace it. Do not hold the plug with wet hands.
■
Take the following precautions for the plug. Failure to comply with
these precautions could result in sparks or fire: Do not insert the plug
into an outlet with dust present. Insert the plug firmly into the outlet.
■
Do not overload wall outlets, extension cords, or integral convenience
receptacles. This can cause fire or electric shock.
■
Do not 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.
■
Do not block the slots and openings in the projector case. They provide
ventilation and prevent the projector from overheating. Do not 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 of any kind through the cabinet slots. Never spill
liquid of any kind into the projector.
121
■
Except as specifically explained in this User’s Guide, do not attempt to
service this product yourself. Refer all servicing to qualified personnel.
Opening or removing covers may expose you to dangerous voltages and
other hazards.
■
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 does not 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.
■
The lamp(s) in this product contain mercury. Please consult your
state and local regulations regarding disposal or recycling. Do not put in
the trash.
■
Unplug the projector during lightning storms or when it will not be used
for extended periods.
■
Do not place the projector and/or remote control on top of
heat-producing equipment or in a hot location.
■
If you use the projector in a country other than where you purchased it,
use the correct power cord for that country.
■
Do not stand on the projector or place heavy objects on it.
■
Do not use the projector outside of the required temperature range of 41
to 104 °F (5 to 40 °C). Doing so may cause an unstable display and
could lead to projector damage.
■
Do not 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.

Warranty
Epson America, Inc. Limited Warranty
Basic Two-Year Warranty and 90-Day Lamp Warranty
What Is Covered: Epson America, Inc. (“Epson”) warrants to the original
retail purchaser of the Epson product enclosed with this limited warranty
statement that the product, if purchased new and operated in the United
States or Canada, will be free from defects in workmanship and materials for
a period of two (2) years from the date of original purchase (except that the
warranty period is 90 days for projector lamps). For warranty service, you
must provide proof of the date of original purchase.
What Epson Will Do To Correct Problems: If your product requires service,
Epson will ask you to bring the product securely packaged in its original
container or equivalent, along with proof of the date of original purchase, to
your Epson Dealer or Epson Customer Care Center as instructed by Epson.
Epson will, at its option, repair or replace the defective unit, without charge
for parts or labor. When warranty service involves the exchange of the
product or of a part, the item replaced becomes Epson property. The
exchanged product or part may be new or previously refurbished to the
Epson standard of quality, and at Epson’s option, the replacement may be
another model of like kind and quality. Epson’s liability for replacement of
the covered product will not exceed the original retail selling price of the
covered product. Exchange or replacement products or parts assume the
remaining warranty period of the product covered by this limited warranty.
However, each replacement lamp carries the limited 90-day warranty stated
above.
What This Warranty Does Not Cover: This warranty does not apply to
refurbished or reconditioned products. This warranty covers only normal use
of the product. 24-hour-per-day or other excessive continual use causes strain
and is not considered normal use. This warranty does not cover consumables
(e.g., fuses), other than lamps. This warranty is not transferable. Epson is not
responsible for warranty service should the Epson label or logo or the rating
label or serial number be removed. Epson is not responsible for warranty
service should the product fail to be properly maintained or fail to function
properly as a result of misuse, abuse, improper installation, neglect, improper
shipping, damage caused by disasters such as fire, flood, and lightning,
improper electrical current, software problems, interaction with non-Epson
products, or service other than by an Epson Authorized Servicer. Postage,
insurance, or shipping costs incurred in presenting your Epson product for
carry-in warranty service are your responsibility. If a claimed defect cannot be
identified or reproduced in service, you will be held responsible for costs
incurred.

THE WARRANTY AND REMEDY PROVIDED ABOVE ARE
EXCLUSIVE AND IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED
WARRANTIES INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE
IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS
FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. SOME LAWS DO NOT ALLOW
THE EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES. IF THESE LAWS
APPLY, THEN ALL EXPRESS AND IMPLIED WARRANTIES ARE
LIMITED TO THE WARRANTY PERIOD IDENTIFIED ABOVE.
UNLESS STATED HEREIN, ANY STATEMENTS OR
REPRESENTATIONS MADE BY ANY OTHER PERSON OR FIRM
ARE VOID. IN THE EVENT THE REMEDIES ABOVE FAIL, EPSON’S
ENTIRE LIABILITY SHALL BE LIMITED TO A REFUND OF THE
PRICE PAID FOR THE EPSON PRODUCT COVERED BY THIS
LIMITED WARRANTY. EXCEPT AS PROVIDED IN THIS WRITTEN
WARRANTY, NEITHER EPSON AMERICA, INC. NOR ITS
AFFILIATES SHALL BE LIABLE FOR ANY LOSS, INCONVENIENCE,
OR DAMAGE, INCLUDING DIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR
CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, RESULTING FROM THE USE OR
INABILITY TO USE THE EPSON PRODUCT, WHETHER
RESULTING FROM BREACH OF WARRANTY OR ANY OTHER
LEGAL THEORY.
In Canada, warranties include both warranties and conditions.
Some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty
lasts and some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of
incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations and exclusions
may not apply to you.

rights, which vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.
