Important
safety instructions
If you intend to mount your projector
on the ceiling, we strongly recommend
that you use a proper fitting BenQ
projector ceiling mount kit and that
you ensure it is securely and safely
installed.
If you use a non-BenQ brand
projector ceiling mount kit, there is a
safety risk that the projector may fall
from the ceiling due to an improper
attachment through the use of the
wrong gauge or length screws.
You can purchase a BenQ projector
ceiling mount kit from the place you
purchased your BenQ projector. BenQ
recommends that you also purchase a
separate Kensington lock compatible
security cable and attach it securely to
both the Kensington lock slot on the
projector and the base of the ceiling
mount bracket. This will perform the
secondary role of restraining the
projector should its attachment to the
mounting bracket become loose.

There is 5% tolerance among these numbers due to optical component variations. BenQ
recommends that if you intend to permanently install the projector, you should physically test
the projection size and distance using the actual projector before you permanently install it, so
as to make allowance for this projector's optical characteristics. This will help you determine
the exact mounting position so that it best suits your installation location.

Connecting audio
The projector has one built-in mono speaker which are designed to provide basic audio
functionality accompanying data presentations for business purposes only. They are not
designed for, nor intended for stereo audio reproduction use as might be expected in
home theater or home cinema applications. Any stereo audio input (if provided), is mixed
into a common mono audio output through the projector speaker.
The built-in speaker will be muted when the AUDIO OUT jack is connected.
22
•
The projector is only capable of playing mixed mono audio, even if a stereo audio input is
connected. See "Connecting audio" on page 22 for details.
•
If the selected video image is not displayed after the projector is turned on and the correct
video source has been selected, check that the video source device is turned on and
operating correctly. Also check that the signal cables have been connected correctly.
http://www.pureglare.com.au
Connection
Playing sound through the projector
You can make use of the projector (mixed mono) speaker in your presentations, and also
connect separate amplified speakers to the AUDIO OUT socket of the projector.
If you have a separate sound system, you will most likely want to connect the audio output
of your Video source device to that sound system, instead of to the mono audio projector.
Once connected, the audio can be controlled by the projector On-Screen Display (OSD)
menus.

Adjusting Contrast
The higher the value, the greater the contrast. Use this
to set the peak white level after you have previously
adjusted the Brightness setting to suit your selected
input and viewing environment.
Adjusting Color
Lower setting produces less saturated colors. If the setting is too high, colors on the image
will be overpowering, which makes the image unrealistic.
Adjusting Tint
The higher the value, the more reddish the picture becomes. The lower the value, the
more greenish the picture becomes.
Adjusting Sharpness
The higher the value, the sharper the picture becomes. The lower the value, the softer the
picture becomes.
Adjusting Brilliant Color
This feature utilizes a new color-processing algorithm and system level enhancements to
enable higher brightness while providing truer, more vibrant colors in picture. It enables a
greater than 50% brightness increase in mid-tone images, which are common in video and
natural scenes, so the projector reproduces images in realistic and true colors. If you
prefer images with that quality, select On. If you don’t need it, select Off.

3D Color Management
In most installation situations, color management will not be necessary, such as in
classroom, meeting room, or lounge room situations where lights remain on, or where
building external windows allow daylight into the room.
Only in permanent installations with controlled lighting levels such as boardrooms, lecture
theaters, or home theaters, should color management be considered. Color management
provides fine color control adjustment to allow for more accurate color reproduction,
should you require it.
Proper color management can only be achieved under controlled and reproducible viewing
conditions. You will need to use a colorimeter (color light meter), and provide a set of
suitable source images to measure color reproduction. These tools are not provided with
the projector, however, your projector supplier should be able to provide you with suitable
guidance, or even an experienced professional installer.
The Color Management provides six sets (RGBCMY) of colors to be adjusted. When you
select each color, you can independently adjust its range and saturation according to your
preference.
If you have purchased a test disc which contains various color test patterns and can be
used to test the color presentation on monitors, TVs, projectors, etc. You can project any
image from the disc on the screen and enter the 3D Color Management menu to make

Lamp information
Getting to know the lamp hour
When the projector is in operation, the duration (in hours) of lamp usage is automatically
calculated by the built-in timer. The method of calculating the equivalent lamp hour is as
follows:
Lamp Usage Time = (hours used in Normal mode) + (hours used in Economic mode) +
(hours used in SmartEco mode)
Equivalent lamp hour = 1.8*(hours used in Normal mode) + 1.3*(hours used in Economic
mode) + 1.00*(hours used in SmartEco mode)
See "Setting Lamp mode as Economic or SmartEco" below for more information on Economic
mode.
To obtain the lamp hour information:
1.
Press MENU/EXIT and then press ◄/► until the SYSTEM SETUP: Advanced
menu is highlighted.
2.
Press ▼ to highlight Lamp Settings and press MODE/ENTER. The Lamp
Settings page displays.
3.
You will see the Lamp Timer information displaying on the menu.
4.
To leave the menu, press MENU/EXIT.
You can also get the lamp hour information on the INFORMATION menu.
Extending lamp life
The projection lamp is a consumable item. To keep the lamp life as long as possible, you
can do the following settings via the OSD menu.
Setting Lamp mode as Economic or SmartEco
Using Economic mode reduces system noise and power consumption by 20%. Using
SmartEco mode reduces system noise and lamp power consumption by up to 70%. If the
Economic or SmartEco mode is selected, the light output will be reduced and result in
darker projected pictures.
Setting the projector in Economic or SmartEco mode also extends the lamp operation
life. To set Economic or SmartEco mode, go into the SYSTEM SETUP: Advanced >
Lamp Settings > Lamp mode menu and press ◄/► until your desired mode is
selected.

Replacing the lamp
•
If lamp replacement is performed while the projector is suspended upside-down from the
ceiling, make sure that no one is underneath the lamp socket to avoid any possible injury or
damage to the human eyes caused by fractured lamp.
•
To reduce the risk of electrical shock, always turn the projector off and disconnect the power
cord before changing the lamp.
•
To reduce the risk of severe burns, allow the projector to cool for at least 45 minutes before
replacing the lamp.
•
To reduce the risk of injuries to fingers and damage to internal components, use caution
when removing lamp glass that has shattered into sharp pieces.
•
To reduce the risk of injuries to fingers and/or compromising image quality by touching the
lens, do not touch the empty lamp compartment when the lamp is removed.
•
This lamp contains mercury. Consult your local hazardous waste regulations to dispose of
this lamp in a proper manner.
•
To assure optimal performance from the projector, it is recommended that you purchase a
BenQ projector lamp for lamp replacement.
•
Ensure good ventilation when handling broken lamps. We recommend that you use
respirators, safety glasses, goggles or face shield and wear protective clothing such as gloves.
