Safety precautions

Å

WARNING: Read and observe these precautions and all others in this manual to reduce the risk of injury and equipment damage.

■ Do not look directly into the lens when the lamp is on.

■ Do not expose the projector to rain or moisture, and do not use it near water.

■ Keep paper, plastic, and combustible material at least 0.5 m (2 ft) away from the projector lens and exhaust vents.

■ Do not allow liquid, food, or small objects to get inside the projector. If material gets inside the projector, contact HP for assistance.

■ Do not put anything on top of the projector. Do not place any liquids where they might spill on the projector.

■ Do not block any vents on the projector. Do not place the projector near any source of heat, such as a radiator or amplifier.

■ Use only an approved power cord rated for the voltage and current marked on the product label. Do not overload any outlet or extension cord. Do not circumvent the grounding prong on the power cord.

■ Route all cables so they are not located where people can step on them or trip on them.

■ Place the projector flat on its base on a sturdy surface or on an HP ceiling mount. Do not stand the projector on its front surface.

■ Do not touch the lens with your fingers. See “Cleaning the projector lens” on page 43. Use a soft, dry cloth to clean the projector case.

■ Do not open the projector except as instructed by this manual, and only after allowing the projector to cool down.

■ If the projector is damaged in any way, contact HP for assistance.

Setting up

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.

■ 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. Or you can mount the projector upside down on the ceiling (see

“Installing on the ceiling” on page 47).

■ 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.

Connecting a video source

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 26).

Only the S-video and composite-video cables shown in the following sections are included with the projector. A DVI port is available only on certain models.

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 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.

26 User’s Guide

Setting up

Connecting a computer

If your projector has a DVI port, 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).

■ DVI-to-VGA adapter

■ VGA cable

See “Showing a computer screen” on page 35.

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.

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 during the cool-down period, it will 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 71).

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 43

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. For a ceiling installation, wear goggles and gloves when removing the lamp module. 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

Connecting to a room controller

If your projector has a serial port, you can connect the projector to a room controller using a serial (RS-232) cable. After you program the room controller using the following commands, you can use the room controller to operate the projector and other components of your home theater.

Serial connections

The serial port on the projector uses a standard serial (RS-232) cable:

■ Pin 2: data sent to the projector (RxD)

■ Pin 3: data sent from the projector (TxD)

■ Pin 5: ground

The room controller must use the following serial (RS-232) settings:

■ 9600 baud

■ 1 start bit + 8 data bits (D0=LSB, D7=MSB) + 1 stop bit

■ No parity

■ Full duplex communication channels (no flow control)

■ No handshaking

Examples of room controller commands

In the following examples, “<CR>” and “<LF>” represent a carriage return and line feed, respectively.

Commands are sent to the projector as "requests" which consist of an asterisk (*) prefix, the command name, any needed parameter, and a carriage return <CR> as a terminator:

* command = parameter <CR>

Requests can contain only ASCII alphanumeric characters. Blanks (spaces) are allowed, except within keywords and numbers. Line feeds <LF> are ignored.

48 User’s Guide

Installing permanently

The following table shows the specific syntax to use for various requested tasks.

To perform this task...

Change a setting to a specified value

Ask the current setting

Increment a setting

Decrement a setting

Invoke an action (no parameter needed)

Use this request syntax...

*command=value<CR>

*command=?<CR>

*command=+<CR>

*command=-<CR>

*command<CR>

In general, every request sent to the projector generates one or more notification messages, which are sent to the room controller. Actions initiated by the projector can also generate notifications.

The projector always sends notifications whenever a setting changes, whether as the result of a request from a controller, or as the result of an action, such as a button press or menu change. Some requested setting changes take time to perform, or are carried out in stages. Because of this, requests might produce delayed notifications.

The following table lists the types of notifications generated in various situations.

Notification:

*CON=40<CR><LF>

Echoes the request command:

Incorrect commands cause the following types of notifications:

■ No asterisk at start of command—no response

■ Unrecognized command name—command with “?” added

■ Command that is currently unavailable—command with “?” added

User’s Guide 49

Installing permanently

■ Invalid parameter—command with current value

■ Action command with unnecessary parameter—action command

■ Action command that is unavailable—action command

The following simplified example shows how the projector typically responds to a request to change the active input source. Note that the three latter notifications are delayed.

Request:

*RSRC=4<CR>

Notification:

*RSRC=4<CR><LF> (acknowledges request)

*SRC=0<CR><LF> (projector is attempting to acquire source 4, and in the interim has no valid source)

*SRC=4<CR><LF> (source 4 is now active)

*BRT=60<CR><LF> (brightness has been modified for source 4)

*CSPC=?<CR><LF> (color space is not supported for this input)

Room controller commands

In the following tables, if the parameter listing for a particular command is

“None,” that command requires no parameter. Some commands are valid only when the projector is turned on, STAT=1. Some commands are available only when specific input sources are active.

❏ Be sure the video cable you are using is coaxial cable rated at 75 ohms.

Any other cable or impedance rating can reduce picture quality.

❏ The video cable connecting the video source to the projector probably must be higher quality, especially if the cable is longer than about 3 m

(10 ft). Low-loss cable is recommended for longer distances to avoid degrading or losing the picture

If a DVI source is not displayed when the DVI port is selected:

❏ Press menu, go to Setup > DVI compatibility, and select Standard

DVI.
