Important Safety Information
WARNING: 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.
WARNING: The projector and its accessories come packaged in plastic bags. Keep plastic bags away from small
children to avoid any risk of suffocation.

Displaying and Adjusting
the Image
W
hether you’re presenting from a computer or video equipment,
you need to follow some basic steps to display your image on the
screen.
Follow the guidelines in this chapter for:
■
Positioning the projector
■
Turning the projector on and selecting the image source
■
Troubleshooting display problems
■
Adjusting the image
■
Turning off the projector
13
Quebec User's Guide.book Page 14 Friday, September 3, 2004 2:46 PM
Positioning the Projector
note
You can mount the projector
on the ceiling, or place it
behind a translucent screen
for rear projection. See
page 81 for details.
If the projector isn’t already installed in the room you’re using, you’ll
probably want to place it on a table in front of the screen, as shown.
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.
TBD
33.1 to 39.7 ft
6.6 to 7.9 ft
3.2 to 3.9 ft
Distance from screen
Also keep these considerations in mind:
14
■
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 anything
that could block the vents under the projector.
■
Make sure the projector is within 10 feet of a grounded electrical
outlet or extension cord.
Displaying and Adjusting the Image
Quebec User's Guide.book Page 15 Friday, September 3, 2004 2:46 PM
Ideally, you should place the projector directly in front of the center of
the screen, facing it toward the screen squarely. The base of the lens
should be at about the level of the bottom of the screen.
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 page 11.
Projector
Screen
If you place the projector below screen level, you’ll have to tilt it up by
extending the front adjustable foot. This causes the image to become
“keystone” shaped, but you can correct the distortion by pressing the
Sync buttons on the projector. See page 22 for detailed information
about correcting the image shape.
For instructions on installing the projector in a permanent location,
such as a theater or conference room, see page 81.
Displaying and Adjusting the Image 15
Quebec User's Guide.book Page 16 Friday, September 3, 2004 2:46 PM
Projecting the Image
Make sure your projector and other equipment are set up as described
on page 35. Then follow the instructions below to start the projector
and display an image.
Turning On the Projector
note
To shut down the projector,
see page 24. Shutting down
the projector correctly
prevents premature lamp
failure and possible damage
from overheating.
Turn on any connected computer or video equipment before starting
the projector so it can 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 17).
Follow these steps to turn on the projector:
1. Remove the lens cap.
2. Plug one end of the power cable into the projector, and the other
end into an electrical outlet.
The Power light comes on.

Quebec User's Guide.book Page 17 Friday, September 3, 2004 2:46 PM
3. Press the red P Power button on the remote control or on top of
the projector.
The projector beeps once and the Power light flashes green as the
projector warms up, then an image begins to appear. When the
Power light stops flashing and remains green, the projector is
ready for use.
4. If you’ve connected a Windows®-based computer to the
projector, you may see a New Hardware Wizard screen saying
your computer has found a plug-and-play monitor; if so, click
Cancel.
warning
Never look into the lens
when the lamp is on. This
can damage your eyes, and is
especially dangerous for
children.
5. If you are prompted to enter a password, see page 52.
Selecting the Image Source
Selecting the image source lets you switch between images input from
different pieces of connected equipment (such as a computer or DVD
player).
If you don’t see the image you want, press the Source Search button
on the projector or the Search button on the remote control until
you see the image you want to project.
note
To focus and adjust the
image, see page 21. If a
projected image fails to
appear, see page 18 for help.
You can also use the Source buttons on the remote control to switch
between devices connected to the ports identified on each button. The
PowerLite 740c does not support EasyMP.TM

Troubleshooting Display Problems
Follow these guidelines if you’re having trouble displaying an image.
You Can’t Project an Image
If you don’t see the image you are trying to project, try the following:
■
Make sure the cables are connected correctly, as described
beginning on page 35.
■
Make sure the Power light is green and not flashing and the lens
cap is off.
■
If you’ve connected more than one computer and/or video source,
you may need to press the Source Search button on the
projector’s control panel or Search button on the remote control
to select the correct source. (Allow a few seconds for the projector
to sync up after pressing the button.)
■

the projector to sync up after changing the setting.
The Projector and Notebook Don’t Display the
Same Image
If you’re projecting from a notebook, and you can’t see your image on
the projection screen and on your computer at the same time, follow
these guidelines.
If you’re using a PC notebook:

Displays.
2. Make sure the VGA Display or Color LCD dialog box is selected.
3. Click the Arrangement (or Arrange) tab.

■
Disable the projector’s buttons; this is useful, for example, if
you’re projecting in a classroom and you want to ensure that no
one touches the projector’s buttons while you’re using the remote
control. See page 57.
If you create a user’s logo for the projector, you can set up the logo so
it is displayed as the startup screen and/or AV/Mute screen.
Unauthorized users cannot turn it off or change it. This feature is
intended to discourage theft and provides a way to identify the
projector should it be stolen.
Enabling Password Protection

Projector Installation
T
his appendix provides guidelines on installing the projector in a
permanent location, such as a theater or conference room.
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
Ceiling mounting
Rear projection
Rear/ceiling projection
To project from overhead, you’ll need the optional ceiling mounting
hardware; see page 11 for ordering information. You’ll also need to
select Front/Ceiling or Rear/Ceiling as the Projection option of the
projector’s Extended menu to flip the image upside-down. To project
from the rear, onto a semi-transparent screen, select Rear or
Rear/Ceiling (see page 58).
81
Quebec User's Guide.book Page 82 Friday, September 3, 2004 2:46 PM
If you’re mounting the projector on the ceiling and you place it above
screen level, you’ll have to tilt the projector down to position the
image on the screen. This causes the image to lose its square shape.
You can correct the distortion using the Keystone function in the
projector’s menu system (see page 51).
If you place the projector so that the base of the lens is level with the
bottom of the screen, the image should be square and you won’t have
to adjust it. If you place the lens lower than the bottom of the screen,
you’ll have to tilt the projector upward if you want to fill the whole
screen with the image.

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, conforms to the manufacturer’s specifications and 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 you elect carry-in warranty
service, please bring the product securely packaged in its original container or
an equivalent, along with proof of the date of original purchase, to your
Epson Dealer or Epson Customer Care Center. Epson will, at its option,
repair or replace on an exchange basis 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
consumer use in the United States and Canada. 24-hour-per-day use causes
unusual 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 or 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
