Playing Movies
Follow the instructions in this section to choose a location, play a movie, and control
playback.
Choosing a Location
You can use your MovieMate just about anywhere—in the living room, bedroom, or even
outside. You can use it with the subwoofer and screen, or simply project on a wall and use the
built-in audio system without the subwoofer.
The following pictures show three different setups:
Side
Front
Floor
MovieMate doesn’t have to be directly in front of the
screen, but it has to face straight ahead (at a 90-degree angle
to the screen). If the image is too low, too high, or off to the
side, you can use the lens shift dials to adjust the position
(see page 16).
Playing Movies
11
MovieMate25UG.book Page 12 Wednesday, January 25, 2006 11:37 AM
The further you place MovieMate from the screen, the larger the image will be.
If you want an image that fills the screen, place MovieMate about 6 1/2 feet away from it. The
following table lists the distances required for various image sizes (measured diagonally). Note
that the zoom adjustment also affects image size.

When setting up MovieMate, keep these considerations in mind:
12
■
Make sure you don’t block the air vents on the sides.
■
Make sure you place MovieMate within 10 feet of an electrical outlet, power strip, or
extension cord. You will need two sockets: one for MovieMate, and one for the
subwoofer.
■
For the best sound, make sure the subwoofer faces toward you and away from the screen.
■
Do not tilt the projector more than 5 degrees up or down.

Caring for MovieMate
MovieMate 25 needs little maintenance. All you need to do on a regular basis is keep the lens
clean. You also need to clean the air filter periodically to prevent overheating.
Warning: Before you clean any part of MovieMate, turn it off and unplug the power cord. Never
open any part of MovieMate, except as described in this User’s Guide. Dangerous electrical
voltages in the projector can injure you severely. Do not try to service this product yourself, except
as specifically explained in this User’s Guide.
The only parts you should replace are the lamp and air filter. If another part needs replacing,
contact Epson or a qualified servicer (see page 52).
Follow the instructions in this section to clean the lens and case, clean and replace the air
filter, replace the lamp, and store or transport MovieMate.
Cleaning the Lens
Clean the lens whenever you notice dirt or dust on the surface.
■
Use a canister of compressed air to remove dust.
■
To remove dirt or smears, use lens-cleaning paper. If necessary, moisten a soft cloth with
lens cleaner and gently wipe the lens surface.
Caution: Never rub the lens with abrasive materials.
Cleaning MovieMate’s Case
Before you clean the case, turn off MovieMate and unplug the power cord.
■
To remove dirt or dust, wipe the case with a soft, dry, lint-free cloth.
■
To remove stubborn dirt or stains, moisten a soft cloth with water and a neutral
detergent. Wring the cloth as dry as possible, then wipe the case.

The picture is wider at the top or bottom.
■
You’ve tilted MovieMate to raise or lower the image, causing it to become “keystoned.”
Use the Keystone setting to correct the problem. See page 33.
■
Better yet, place MovieMate at a height approximately between the top and bottom of the
screen, keeping it level, and then use the vertical lens shift dial to position the image (see
page 16). You won’t have to correct for keystone distortion this way, and you’ll get a
better-looking image.
The picture is taller on the left or right side.
MovieMate is set at an angle to the screen. Face it squarely toward the screen, and then use
the horizontal lens shift dial to center the image. See page 16.

Important Safety Information
Follow these safety instructions when setting up and using MovieMate:
■
Except as specifically explained in this User’s Guide, do not attempt to service this product
yourself. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.
■
Never open any cover on the projector, except the lamp and filter covers. Dangerous electrical
voltages inside the projector can severely injure you.
■
The projector and its accessories come packaged in plastic bags. Keep plastic bags away from small
children to avoid any risk of suffocation.
■
Never look into the projector lens when the lamp is turned on; the bright light can damage your
eyes. Never let children look into the lens when it is on.
■
Don’t place the projector on an unstable cart, stand, or table. Also, don’t stand on the projector or
place heavy objects on it.
■
Never push objects through the cabinet slots or spill liquid into the projector.
■
Do not use the projector near water, or sources of heat or vibration. Do not expose it to rain or
moisture.
■
Do not move the unit during playback.
■
Do not touch the projection lens with bare hands.
■
Use a damp cloth for cleaning. Do not use liquid or aerosol cleaners. Unplug the projector from
the wall outlet before cleaning.
■
Never try to remove the lamp immediately after use. Doing so will result in serious burns. Before
removing the lamp, turn off the projector and wait approximately one hour for the lamp to cool
completely.
■
The lamp is fragile and can easily break. If the lamp breaks, handle the projector with extreme care
to avoid injury from broken glass, and contact Epson to replace the lamp.
■
Do not use the lamp after the lamp replacement period has elapsed, because the possibility of lamp
breakage increases. When the lamp replacement message appears, replace the lamp with a new one
as soon as possible.
■
The lamp in this product contains mercury. Please consult your state and local regulations
regarding disposal or recycling. Do not put in the trash.
■
The lamp in this projector is under high internal pressure and may make a loud noise if it breaks.
If it breaks, ventilate the room to prevent mercury gas inside the lamp from being inhaled or
coming into contact with the eyes or mouth.
■
Do not bring your face close to the projector while it is in use, to prevent inhaling or contact with
the gases inside the lamp if it breaks.
■
If the lamp breaks and gas from the lamp or fragments of broken glass are inhaled or get into the
eyes or mouth, or if any other ill effects are noticed, immediately seek medical advice.
■
Use the type of power source indicated on the projector. If you’re not sure of the power available,
consult the power company.

■
If you use the projector in a country other than where you purchased it, use the correct power cord
for that country.
■
Place the projector near a wall outlet where the plug can be easily unplugged.
■
Don’t place the projector where the cord can be walked on. This may result in fraying or damage
to the plug.
■
Don’t insert the plug into an outlet with dust present, and insert the plug firmly into the outlet.
Failure to do so could result in sparks or fire.
■
Don’t handle the plug with wet hands.
■
Don’t overload wall outlets, extension cords, or integral convenience receptacles. This can cause
fire or electric shock.
■
Unplug the projector from the wall outlet and refer servicing to qualified service personnel under
the following conditions: when the power cord or plug is damaged or frayed; if liquid has been
spilled into the projector, or if it has been exposed to rain, water, or excessive humidity; if it
doesn’t operate normally when you follow the operating instructions, or if it exhibits a distinct
change in performance, indicating a need for service; if it has been dropped or the housing has
been damaged.
■
If there is an electrical storm, do not touch the power plug, otherwise you may receive an electric
shock.
■
Keep the projector unplugged when not in use for extended periods.
■
Keep the batteries for the remote control out of the reach of children. Batteries are choking hazards
and can be very dangerous if swallowed. If they are swallowed, seek medical attention immediately.
■
Replace the batteries as soon as they run out.
■
Do not expose batteries to heat or flame.
■
Dispose of used batteries according to local regulations.
■
Remove the batteries if you won’t be using the projector for a long period of time.
■
Don’t block the slots and openings in the projector case. They provide ventilation and prevent the
projector from overheating. Don’t operate the projector on a sofa, rug, or other soft surface, or in a
closed-in cabinet unless proper ventilation is provided.
■
Material or paper may get stuck against the air filter underneath the projector while it is in use.
Remove anything from underneath the projector that might get stuck against the air filter in this
way.
■
Don’t place the projector or remote control on top of heat-producing equipment or in a heated
place, such as a car.
■
Don’t use the projector outside of the required temperature range (see page 54). Doing so may
cause an unstable display and could lead to projector damage.
■
Don’t store the projector outside of the required temperature range (see page 54) or in direct
sunlight for long periods of time. Doing so may cause damage to the case.
■
Make sure there is at least 8 inches of space between the exhaust ventilation slots and the wall or
other object.
Specifications and Notices
MovieMate25UG.book Page 59 Wednesday, January 25, 2006 11:37 AM
■
Make sure there is at least 4 inches of space between the intake ventilation slots and the wall or
other object.
■
Do not use the projector with the lens cover on; otherwise, the cover could melt and cause injury.
■
Do not turn the volume too high, especially when using headphones. Listening to high volume
sounds over an extended period can damage your hearing. Sudden high volume can also damage
the speakers.

States or Canada, conforms to the manufacturer’s specifications and will be free from defects in
workmanship and materials for a period of two (2) years from the date of original purchase (except that
the warranty period is 90 days for projector lamps). For warranty service, you must provide proof of the
date of original purchase.
What Epson Will Do To Correct Problems: Should your Epson projector require service during the
warranty period, Epson will, at its option, exchange or repair the projector without charge for parts or
labor. If Epson authorizes an exchange for the defective unit, Epson will ship a replacement projector to
you, freight prepaid, to an address in Canada or the U.S. (excluding Puerto Rico and U.S. Possessions).
Shipments to other locations will be made freight collect. You are responsible for securely packaging

exchange of the product or of a part, the item replaced becomes Epson property. The exchanged
product or part may be new or previously repaired to the Epson standard of quality, or, at Epson’s
option, may be another model of like kind and quality. Exchange or replacement products assume the
remaining warranty period of the product covered by this limited warranty, except that each
replacement lamp carries the limited 90-day warranty stated above.
What This Warranty Does Not Cover: This warranty covers only normal use of the product in the
United States and Canada. 24-hour-per-day use of this product causes unusual strain and is not
considered normal use. This warranty does not cover consumables (e.g., fuses), other than lamps. This
warranty does not apply to refurbished or reconditioned products, and this warranty is not transferable.
Epson is not responsible for warranty service should the Epson label or logo or the rating label or serial
number be removed or should the product fail to be properly maintained or fail to function properly as
a result of misuse, abuse, improper installation, neglect, improper shipping, damage caused by disasters
such as fire, flood, and lightning, improper electrical current, software problems, interaction with
non-Epson products, or service other than by an Epson Authorized Servicer. Postage, insurance, or
shipping costs incurred in presenting your Epson product for carry-in warranty service are your
responsibility. If a claimed defect cannot be identified or reproduced in service, you will be held
responsible for costs incurred.

CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, RESULTING FROM THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE
EPSON PRODUCT, WHETHER RESULTING FROM BREACH OF WARRANTY OR ANY
OTHER LEGAL THEORY. IF THE REMEDY ABOVE FAILS, EPSON’S ENTIRE LIABILITY
SHALL BE LIMITED TO A REFUND OF THE PRICE PAID FOR THE EPSON PRODUCT
COVERED BY THIS LIMITED WARRANTY.
In Canada, warranties include both warranties and conditions.
Some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, and some
jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the
above limitations and exclusions may not apply to you. This warranty gives you specific legal rights,
and you may also have other rights, which vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.
