Setting up the projector

Planning your layout

Consider the following suggestions when planning your room layout:

■ Select the projector and screen positions and the screen size according to your room layout and the distance chart below. The zoom control on the projector gives you some flexibility.

■ Be sure the projector is centered on the screen and perpendicular to it.

Otherwise, the picture might look lopsided.

14 User’s Guide

Setting up

■ For the best picture, consider purchasing a quality projection screen. Some screens are designed for wide-angle viewing, while others are designed to concentrate brightness in the center. A flat surface colored white or light gray will also give acceptable results.

■ For the most comfortable viewing, center your seating around the projection line-of-sight. Depending on the screen material, viewing from far off center might be unsatisfactory.

■ The best viewing distance is roughly the same distance from the screen as the projector, but personal preferences vary widely.

■ If possible, place the bottom of the screen slightly above the level of the projector.

■ Design the room so you can control the ambient light. Most people prefer viewing with minimal lighting, but you can have acceptable results if you limit ambient light on the screen. Bright room lighting might cause a washed-out picture.

■ The most common video source is a DVD player, but sources can also include devices, such as an audio/video receiver, VCR, hard disk video recorder, video gaming device, or satellite receiver.

■ Depending on your personal setup, try to locate devices to minimize the lengths of cables connecting them to the projector. If any cable is more than

3 m (10 ft), consider using high-quality, low-loss cables for best video and audio quality.

■ For the ultimate home-theater experience, consider including a 5.1 surround sound system, such as a Dolby Digital system. This system has five speakers and a subwoofer.

■ For an external sound system, see the following diagram for a possible speaker layout. Place all front speakers at the same distance from the listener. Place the subwoofer near a wall or corner. Place surround speakers at least as high as the listener’s head. Experiment with the speaker placement.

User’s Guide 15

For best picture quality, place the projector 1.5 to 5 m (5 to 16 ft) from the screen.

Setting up

Connecting power

1. Place the projector on a stable platform located 1 to 10 m (3 to 33 ft) in front of the screen. Ideally, the platform should be lower than the bottom of the screen.

Do not place the projector on a soft surface, such as carpet or loose cloth.

This will severely limit the sound from the subwoofer.

2. Connect one end of the power cord to the back of the projector other end to a grounded electrical outlet

Connecting a video source

The internal DVD player provides optimal picture quality and the convenience of a single remote control. If you connect an external video source, you should consider picture quality.

Many video devices have more than one type of output port. When you connect the device to the projector, choose the connection that provides the best picture quality. Relative picture qualities are indicated by stars in the following diagram.

If you have several video sources, you can connect them to the different ports, or you can connect them to an audio/video receiver and connect the receiver to the

projector (see “Connecting several video sources” on page 27).

The cables shown in the following sections are not included with the projector. If you do not have an external audio system, you can connect the audio output from the external video source to the projector audio input.

If you already have a home theater system with a TV, you can probably connect the projector in place of the TV as the viewing device.

Setting up

Connecting a component-video source

Examples: Cable box, DVD player, satellite receiver, and audio-video receiver

Requires:

■ Component-video cable

■ Many DVD players and other high-quality video devices provide component video output. The three RCA connectors might be labeled

YPbPr or YCbCr.

■ If possible, configure the video source to use progressive scan output, such as 480p, 575p, or 720p. For additional information, refer to the user documentation provided with the video source.

24 User’s Guide

Setting up

Connecting a sound system

A high-quality 2.1 sound system is built into the projector. No connections are required when using the internal DVD player. If you connect an external video source to the projector, you can also connect its audio output to the projector’s audio input.

If you want to listen to the audio in private, connect a stereo headphone to the headphone output. This disables the built-in speakers.

User’s Guide 25

Setting up

If you have a home theater system or external sound system, you can connect the audio output from the internal DVD player to that system. You can connect a 5.1 surround sound system with five speakers and a subwoofer for full surround sound (connection

1

in the following illustration). The digital audio output is active only when using the internal DVD player. A digital audio connection requires a digital coaxial cable, not an ordinary audio cable. Or you can connect a stereo sound system to the projector (connection

2

in the following illustration).

If you connect an external sound system, turn off the internal speakers.

Press the menu button, go to Sound > Internal speakers, and turn them off.

26 User’s Guide

Setting up

Connecting several video sources

If you have several video sources, connect them to an audio/video receiver or switch box, then connect the video output from the receiver or switch box to the projector using the highest quality connection available. Also connect the audio outputs from all sources to the receiver, switch box, or sound system.

Connect the projector’s digital audio output or stereo audio output to the receiver, switch box, or sound system. This sends the audio from the internal DVD player to the sound system.

User’s Guide 27

Setting up

Connecting a computer

You can connect a computer to the projector and show the computer display on the screen. This requires a DVI-to-VGA adapter (included with the projector) and a VGA cable (not provided).

Requires:

■ DVI-to-VGA adapter

■ VGA cable

See “Showing a computer screen” on page 43.

If the computer display does not appear on the projector, you might have to press a combination of keys on the computer to turn on the computer’s

VGA output. For example, on some computers you must press Fn+F4 or

Fn+F5. For instructions, refer to the user documentation provided with your computer.

User’s Guide 29

Setting up

Turning the projector off

1. Press the power button on the projector or remote control to turn off the projector. Do not hold the button down.

The power button blinks during the cool-down period, then the projector turns off. Even though the projector is off, it uses a small amount of power internally.

2. If you want, disconnect video and audio equipment from the projector during the cool-down period or after the power button stops blinking.

Ä

CAUTION: Do not disconnect power until the projector has cooled down (the fan stops) and the power button stops blinking. Otherwise, you might shorten the life of the lamp.

3. If you must unplug or remove the projector, wait until the power light stops blinking, then unplug the power cord.

If you try to turn on the projector again or insert a disc in the DVD tray during the cool-down period, the projector does not turn on. Wait until the cool-down period ends and the power button stops blinking.

Moving the projector

When moving the projector:

■ Allow the projector to cool down before moving it. Then disconnect all cables.

■ Avoid bumps and jolts. Use a padded container when possible.

■ Observe temperature and humidity limits (see “Specifications” on page 69).

Cleaning the projector lens

You can clean the front lens of the projector using the following recommendations. You cannot clean any of the internal surfaces.

■ To minimize the risk of damaging or scratching the lens surface, blow dust particles off the lens with clean, dry, deionized air.

■ If this method does not work, use the following method: a. Wipe the lens in a single direction with a clean, dry cloth. Do not wipe back and forth across the lens.

b. If the cloth is dirty or smears the lens, wash the cloth. If the cloth is still dirty after washing it or the fabric is damaged, replace it.

Ä

Cleaning requires special consideration:

Do not spray any type of fluid or cleaner directly on the lens surface.

Cleaners might damage the lens.

Do not use fabric softener when washing a cleaning cloth or softener sheets when drying the cloth. Chemicals on the cloth might damage the surface of the lens.

Do not store a cleaning cloth in contact with the lens for a long time because doing so contaminates the lens with dye from the cloth. The cloth can be contaminated if left in the open air.

User’s Guide 51

Maintaining the projector

Replacing the lamp module

As the projector operates over time, the brightness of the projector lamp gradually decreases and the lamp becomes more susceptible to breakage. You can install a new lamp at any time to bring the projector up to factory-fresh brightness. We recommend replacing the lamp if a warning message is displayed.

Å

Replacing the lamp module requires special consideration:

To reduce the risk of injury, be careful when removing the lamp module as broken glass might be present. If the lamp is broken, contact HP about repairs that might be required due to glass fragments.

The lamp contains a small amount of mercury. If the lamp breaks, adequately ventilate the area where the breakage occurred. Disposal of this lamp might be regulated due to environmental considerations. For disposal or recycling information, contact your local authorities or the

Electronic Industries Alliance at http://www.eiae.org.

Because the lamp assembly operates at a very high temperature, wait 30 minutes before removing the lamp module.

1. Turn off the projector and allow it to cool for 30 minutes.

2. Unplug the power cord.

3. Loosen the 3 screws

1

on the front cover and pull out the front cover until the tab

Chapter 7, “Support and warranty.”

Warning light problems

If both red warning lights are blinking:

❏ Allow the projector to cool down after it turns off. If this condition occurs after you restart the projector, an internal component has failed.

Contact HP for assistance.

If the red temperature light is on or blinking:

❏ Allow the projector to cool down after it turns off. Be sure that nothing is near or blocking the vents on the projector, and that the vents are free of lint and other objects. Remove any sources of excess heat in the room.

Observe temperature and altitude limits (see “Specifications” on page 69). If the warning light turns on or blinks after you restart the

projector, contact HP for assistance.

User’s Guide 55

Fixing problems

If the red lamp light is on or blinking:

❏ Allow the projector to cool down after it turns off. If the warning light turns on or blinks after you restart the projector, install a new lamp. If this occurs after you install a new lamp module, remove and reinstall the lamp module. If a new lamp does not fix the problem, contact HP for assistance.

If the red lamp light is flickering quickly:

❏ Check that the cover around the lamp at the front of the projector is correctly installed and fully attached. Check the tab at the right side of the cover and the screw at the left side.

Start-up problems

If no lights or sounds turn on:

❏ Be sure that the power cable is securely connected to the projector and the other end is plugged into an outlet with power.

❏ If you put a disc in the DVD tray but the projector did not turn on, the disc is not recognized. Try a different disc.
