Connecting Your Source – Detailed connection instructions begin on page 40 of the manual. 1. To connect to a laptop computer, connect the VGA cable (included) from the monitor output of the laptop to a VGA input on the projector. This is a blue 15-pin connector on the projector and a similar 15-pin connector on the laptop. 2. To connect a Mac laptop you'll need a DVI to VGA adapter between the VGA cable and the laptop, a DVI to VGA cable, or a DVI to HDMI cable. 3. To connect a DVD player or other video source, connect the included composite video cable (yellow end) between the “AV” connector on the projector and the yellow video out connector on your DVD player. Some DVD players and other video sources can be connected with the HDMI cable (included). Connecting Audio – Detailed connection instructions begin on page 40 of the manual. 1. This projector has a small built-in speaker. Please note that the projector will only accept sound on the AV input. If your audio source has RCA outputs (red and white connectors), simply plug the red and white RCA connectors on the AV cable into your source. If your audio source has a small headphone jack, plug the AV cable's RCA plugs into the included RCA to mini adapter. 2. To adjust the volume, press the menu button on the projector. Press the down arrow to go to volume adjustment and press enter. Use the left and right arrow buttons to raise or lower the volume. 3. For louder sound, connect the audio output from your source to a PA system or portable stereo. When doing this, the audio does not need to connect through the projector at all. Connect a suitable cable from your source (laptop or DVD player) to your audio system. If you rented a portable PA system from ATS, suitable cables and a separate instruction sheet are included.

Troubleshooting – Detailed troubleshooting instructions begin on page 37 of the manual. 1. Nothing appears on the screen at all, screen is dark: ◦ Make sure the lens cap is removed from the lens. ◦ Make sure there is power to the projector and it is turned on (power button should be lit up). ◦ Allow a minute or so for the projector to warm up. ◦ Turn the projector all the way off and back on. If the screen is still dark, the projector may be malfunctioning. 2. Only a blue screen appears, no image from the source. ◦ Make sure a cable is connected from the output of your source to an input on the projector. ◦ Make sure your source is on and outputting an image. Many laptops require you press a function key to turn on the VGA monitor output. The key may be labeled “CRT/LCD” or have a picture of a monitor on it. Hold “Function” (near the shift key) and press this key to toggle the VGA output on and off. Sometimes this output is controlled by right-clicking anywhere on your laptop screen and selecting “Properties”, then the “Settings” tab and adjusting which displays are active. ◦ Press the left arrow button on the projector to select the input where the cable from your source is connected. 3. Image is not bright enough. ◦ Close blinds, cover windows, turn off lights to darken the room, especially any light shining directly on the screen. ◦ Move the projector closer to the screen. This will produce a smaller but brighter image. Shutdown Press the power button twice to turn the projector off. Questions?
