Where appropriate, we have included the page number for easy reference. If you need to view the full manual at anytime, just visit this item on our website and click the link to the manual on the Item Details tab. BASIC SETUP 1. Remove the projector from the packaging and place it on a stand or table with the lens facing the direction you would like the image to be projected.` 2. Connect the included power cord to the projector and plug into an outlet or a heavy duty extension cord. If there is one included, remove the lens cover from the projector. CONNECTING YOUR SOURCE 1. To connect your laptop to the projector, connect the included VGA Cable from the VGA Output of the laptop to the VGA Input on the projector. 2. To connect a MAC computer, you will need a MAC Adapter between the laptop and the VGA Cable. MAC Adapter packs are available to be rented from ATS Rentals if needed. 3. Detailed instructions for connecting your computer to the projector using these and other options can be found on pages 12 - 16 in the manual. 4. To connect a DVD Player or other video source to the projector, connect the included composite cable from the Video Out on the DVD Player to the similar Video In connection on the projector. 5. Detailed instructions for connecting your DVD Player to the projector using this method as well as others can be found on pages 17-21 of the manual. CONNECTING AUDIO 1. The projector itself has a small built in speaker that is about equivalent to the sound of a laptop speaker. To connect your laptop to the projector sound, use the included ⅛” Audio Cable between the computer audio output and the projector audio input. Use the audio settings menu on the projector and/or on your laptop to adjust the volume. 2. For louder sound you can 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 will be included. Questions?

Dell 7700 Projector Setup and Troubleshooting Guide Page 2 of 2 TESTING AND ADJUSTMENT 1. Turn the projector on using the power button on the top of the projector. Turn on the source that is connected to your projector as well. The projector should automatically search for a connected source. As the projector warms up, the image will start to appear. 2. You can adjust the image by either moving the projector closer or further from the screen or wall that the image is being projected on. You can also use the zoom knob located in the side panel on the projector to zoom in and out. 3. To adjust the focus by using the focus ring that surrounds the lens on the projector. 4. Detailed instructions on adjusting the projector can be found on pages 25-29 of the manual. TROUBLESHOOTING ● 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. ● 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. This projector also has a VGA out which will not work as an input. ○ Make sure your source is turned on and outputting an image. Many laptops require you to press a function key on the keyboard to turn on the external 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 may also be 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. ● 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. ● Detailed instructions on troubleshooting can be found on pages 101-107 in the manual. SHUTDOWN ● Press the power button twice to turn the projector off, then wait 2 minutes until the cooling fan turns off before unplugging the projector power cord. This allows the projector to cool safely before losing power. ● Detailed instructions on shutting down the projector can be found on page 25 of the manual. Questions?
