Epson 530 Projector Setup and Troubleshooting Guide Page 1 of 2 BASIC SETUP 1. Remove the projector from the packaging and place it on a stand or table with the lens facing the direction you want the image to be projected. If there is a lens cover, remove it from the lens. 2. Connect the included power cord into the projector and plug into a wall 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 of the projector. 2. To connect to a MAC computer, you will need a MAC adapter between the laptop and the VGA cable MAC adapter packs are available as a separate rental item with ATS Rentals as well. 3. Detailed instructions on connecting your computer to the projector using these and other options can be found on pages 33 - 36 in the instruction manual. 4. There are multiple ways to connect to other sources, such as DVD players, as well. You can find detailed instructions on pages 36 - 44 in the instruction manual. CONNECTING TO 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. 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. 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 size by either moving the projector closer or further from the screen or wall that the image is being projected on. 3. Adjust the focus by using the focus ring that is on top of the projector, behind the lens. 4. More detailed instructions on setting up the projector can be found on pages 24 - 32 of the instruction manual. Questions?

Epson 530 Projector Setup and Troubleshooting Guide Page 2 of 2 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 properly connected from the correct output of your source to the correct input of the projector. ◦ 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. • The 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. ◦ More detailed instructions on troubleshooting issues can be found on pages 144 - 157 in the instruction manual. Questions?
