Optoma DV11 Projector
Setup & Troubleshooting Instructions
Basic Setup
1. Remove the projector from the packaging and place it on a stand or table facing the screen or wall you want to project the
picture onto.
2. Remove the lens cover. Connect the power cord to the projector and a wall outlet or extension cord.
3. WHEN USING PROJECTOR AT HIGH ALTITUDES: From the Menu, select System, then High Altitude. Select On. Please
ensure that High Altitude mode is on each time you power on the projector to make sure the fans cool properly.
Connecting Your Source – Detailed connection instructions begin on page 12 of the manual.
1. To play a DVD, simply insert the DVD into the DVD slot in the rear of the projector. No connections needed.
2. To connect to a laptop computer to show a Powerpoint or other presentation, 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 15pin connector on the laptop.
Connecting Audio – Detailed connection instructions begin on page 12 of the manual.
1. This projector has a built-in speaker loud enough for a living-room sized event.
2. Alternately, there is an audio output on the back of the projector that can be connected to a portable PA system or home stereo
system. If you rented a portable PA system from ATS, suitable cables and a separate instruction sheet will be included.
Testing and Adjustment – Detailed set up instructions begin on page 16 of the manual.
1. Press the power button on the projector to turn it on. In about a minute an image should start to appear on your screen as the
projector warms up.
2. Move the projector closer to the screen if the image is too large, and farther from the screen if the image is too small.
3. Adjust the foot on the front of the projector to point the image up or down to match the height of your screen.
4. Use the menus on the projector to adjust the shape of the image if it is not square with your screen.
5. Turn the lens ring on the front of the projector to adjust the focus until the image is sharp.
6. To play a DVD, simply insert it into the DVD slot in rear of projector.
Troubleshooting – Detailed troubleshooting steps begin on page 49 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 green, not blue).
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. 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.
3. DVD will not play.
Eject DVD and retry. Make sure it is clean and free of major scratches.
As a last resort, you can also connect an external DVD player to the yellow Video In jack on the back of the projector. You
can also connect a laptop to the VGA input.
Shutdown
Press the power button twice to turn the projector off, then wait until the cooling fan turns off before unplugging the
projector power cord. This allows the projector to cool safely before losing power.
