information technology equipment. However, to ensure safe use of this product, it is
important that you follow the instructions mentioned in this manual and marked on the
product.
Safety Instructions
1.
Please read this manual before you
operate your projector. Save it for
future reference.
2.
Do not look straight at the projector
lens during operation. The intense
light beam may damage your eyes.
3.
Refer servicing to qualified service
personnel.
4.
Always open the lens shutter or
remove the lens cap when the
projector lamp is on.
5.
In some countries, the line voltage is
NOT stable. This projector is designed
to operate safely within a mains
voltage between 100 to 240 volts AC,
but could fail if power cuts or surges
of ±10 volts occur. In areas where the
mains voltage may fluctuate or cut
out, it is recommended that you
connect your projector through a
power stabilizer, surge protector or
uninterruptible power supply (UPS).
6.
Do not block the projection lens with
any objects when the projector is
under operation as this could cause
the objects to become heated and

Positioning your projector
Choosing a location
Your projector is designed to be installed in one of four possible installation locations:
1.
Table in front of screen;
2.
Ceiling in front of screen;
3.
Table at rear of screen;
4.
Ceiling at rear of screen.
1.
Front Table
Select this location with the projector placed near the
floor in front of the screen. This is the most common
way to position the projector for quick setup and
portability.
2.
Front Ceiling
Select this location with the projector suspended
upside-down from the ceiling in front of the screen.
Purchase the BenQ Projector Ceiling Mounting Kit
from your dealer to mount your projector on the
ceiling.
Set Front Ceiling in the System Setup: Basic >
Projector Position menu after you turn the projector on.
3.
Rear Table
Select this location with the projector placed near the
floor behind the screen.
Note that a special rear projection screen is required.
Set Rear Table in the System Setup: Basic > Projector
Position menu after you turn the projector on.
4.
Rear Ceiling
Select this location with the projector suspended
upside-down from the ceiling behind the screen.
Note that a special rear projection screen and the
BenQ Projector Ceiling Mounting Kit are required for
this installation location.
Set Rear Ceiling in the System Setup: Basic >
Projector Position menu after you turn the projector on.
Your room layout or personal preference will dictate which installation location you select.
Take into consideration the size and position of your screen, the location of a suitable power
outlet, as well as the location and distance between the projector and the rest of your
equipment.
Positioning your projector
http://www.pureglare.com.au

If you use the projector with wireless function, there's no need to worry about data cable
connections.This gives you the flexibility to site the projector anywhere in the room up to a
range of 20m away from your notebook, and switch between presentations on different
notebooks instantly without fiddling with cables
To use the wireless function, you need to install a BenQ wireless module to the projector and
enable your notebook/desktop PC with wireless connection. For more information, refer to
"Wireless connection (optional)" on page 22.
Safety instructions for ceiling mounting of the
projector
We want you to have a pleasant experience using your BenQ projector, so we need to bring
this safety matter to your attention to prevent damage to person and property.
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.
18
Positioning your projector
http://www.pureglare.com.au
Obtaining a preferred projected image size
The distance from the projector lens to the screen, the zoom setting, and the video format
each factors in the projected image size.
The maximum (native) resolution of the projector is 1024 x 768 pixels, which is a 4 to 3
aspect ratio (expressed as 4:3). To be able to project a complete 16:9 (widescreen) aspect
ratio image, the projector can resize and scale a widescreen image to the projector's native
aspect width. This will result in a proportionally smaller height equivalent to 75% of the
projector's native aspect height.
4:3 aspect image in a 4:3 aspect display area
16:9 aspect image scaled to a 4:3 aspect
display area
Thus, a 16:9 aspect image will not utilize 25% of the height of a 4:3 aspect image displayed
by this projector. This will be seen as darkened (unlit) bars along the top and bottom
(vertical 12.5% height respectively) of the 4:3 projection display area whenever displaying a
scaled 16:9 aspect image in the vertical center of the 4:3 projection display area.
When determining the position of your projector, you should consider its intended use and
input signal aspect ratios. All inputs (other than composite Video being fed a 16:9 aspect
signal) will display in a 4:3 aspect ratio (and will require an additional 33% display height
than that of the scaled 16:9 aspect image projection area).
IMPORTANT: Do not select a permanent projector position based upon a 16:9 projection if you
will ever need to select an input (other than composite Video being fed a 16:9 aspect signal).
The projector should always be placed horizontally level (like flat on a table), and positioned
directly perpendicular (90° right-angle square) to the horizontal center of the screen. This
prevents image distortion caused by angled projections (or projecting onto angled surfaces).
The modern digital projector does not project directly forward (like older style reel-to-reel
film projectors did). Instead, digital projectors are designed to project at a slightly upward
angle above the horizontal plane of the projector. This is so that they can be readily placed
on a table and will project forward and upwards onto a screen positioned so that the bottom
edge of the screen is above the level of the table (and everyone in the room can see the
screen).
If the projector is mounted on a ceiling, it must be mounted upside-down so that it projects
at a slightly downward angle.
You can see from the diagram on page 21, that this type of projection causes the bottom edge
of the projected image to be vertically offset from the horizontal plane of the projector.
When ceiling mounted, this refers to the top edge of the projected image.
If the projector is positioned further away from the screen, the projected image size
increases, and the vertical offset also increases proportionately.
When determining the position of the screen and projector, you will need to account for
both the projected image size and the vertical offset dimension, which are directly
proportional to the projection distance.
BenQ has provided a table of 4:3-aspect-ratio screen sizes to assist you in determining the
ideal location for your projector. There are two dimensions to consider, the perpendicular
horizontal distance from the center of the screen (projection distance), and the vertical
offset height of the projector from the horizontal edge of the screen (offset).
Positioning your projector

How to determine the position of the projector for a given
screen size
1.
2.
Select your screen size.
Refer to the table and find the closest match to your screen size in the left columns
labelled '4:3 Screen Diagonal'. Using this value, look across this row to the right to find
the corresponding average distance from screen value in the column labelled 'Average'.
This is the projection distance.
3.
On that same row, look across to the right column and make note of the vertical Offset
value. This will determine the final vertical offset placement of the projector in
relation to the edge of the screen.
4.
The recommended position for the projector is aligned perpendicular to the
horizontal center of the screen, at the distance from the screen determined in step 2
above, and offset by the value determined in step 3 above.
For example, if you are using a 120 inch screen, the average projection distance is 4432 mm
and with a vertical offset of 302 mm.
If you place the projector in a different position (to that recommended), you will have to tilt
it down or up to center the image on the screen. In these situations, some image distortion
will occur. Use the Keystone function to correct the distortion. See "Correcting keystone" on

given distance
This method can be used for situations where you have purchased this projector and would
like to know what screen size will fit in your room.
The maximum screen size is limited by the physical space available in your room.
1.
Measure the distance between the projector and where you want to position the
screen. This is the projection distance.
2.
Refer to the table and find the closest match to your measurement in the average
distance from screen column labelled 'Average'. Check that your measured distance is
between the min and max distances listed on either side of the average distance value.
3.
Using this value, look across that row to the left to find the corresponding screen
diagonal listed in that row. That is the projected image size of the projector at that
projection distance.
4.
On that same row, look across to the right column and make note of the vertical Offset
value. This will determine the final placement of the screen in relation to the
horizontal plane of the projector.
For example, if your measured projection distance was 4.8m (4800mm), the closest match in
the Average column is 5089 mm. Looking across this row shows that a 3500 mm (3.5 m)
screen is required. If you can only obtain imperial sized screens, the listed screen sizes on
either side of the 3.5 m screen are the 10' and 12' screens.
Checking the min and max projection distance values for these screen sizes, indicates that
the 4.8 m measured projection distance will need to be reduced to fit the 10' size screen, or
increased to fit the 12' size screen. The projector can be adjusted (using the zoom control) to
display on these different screen sizes at those projection distances. Be aware that these
different screens have different vertical offset values.

There is 3% 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 in situ 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.

Connection
When connecting a signal source to the projector, be sure to:
1.
Turn all equipment off before making any connections.
2.
Use the correct signal cables for each source.
3.
Ensure the cables are firmly inserted.
In the connections shown below, some cables may not be included with the projector (see
"Shipping contents" on page 10). They are commercially available from electronics stores.
Wireless connection (optional)
The Wireless module allows for simultaneous wireless connectivity to multiple computers
which are wireless enabled. This saves you from having to swap data cables between the
projector and different computers during a presentation. Wireless connectivity is most
suitable for situations where multiple presenters with separate notebooks are required to
seamlessly present individual presentations, like in meetings, conferences, lectures and,
classrooms.
The Wireless module connects and attaches to the rear of the projector through the DVI-I
socket.
While the Wireless module is attached to the projector, you cannot use the DVI-I socket for DVI
cable connections.
Even though the projector may be using a wireless data connection, it still requires physical
connection to a power outlet using its power cable.
You can purchase a BenQ wireless module from
BenQ retailers. You should attach the wireless
module to the projector before you connect any
other cables. Refer to the user's manual
enclosed with the wireless module for
connection and operation details.

Connecting Video source devices
This section describes how to connect the projector to Video source devices using video
cables. Video cable connections are recommended for Video presentations.
This projector also supports data (graphic) "PC" connection using wireless function. Wireless
connection is not recommended for Video presentations. See "Wireless connection
(optional)" on page 22.
You can connect your projector to various Video source devices that provide any one of the
following output sockets:
•
DVI
•
Component Video
•
S-Video
•
Video (composite)
You need only connect the projector to a Video source device using just one of the above
connecting methods, however each provides a different level of video quality. The method
you choose will most likely depend upon the availability of matching terminals on both the
projector and the Video source device as described below:
Best video quality
The best available video connection method is DVI. If your source device is equipped with a
DVI socket, based on the type of DVI connector you have, you can enjoy digital or high-end
analog video quality.
See "Connecting a DVI source device" on page 26 for how to connect the projector to a DVI
source device and other details.
If no DVI source is available, the next best video signal is Component Video (not to be
confused with composite Video). Digital TV tuners and DVD players output Component
Video natively, so if available on your devices, they should be your connection method of
choice in preference to S-Video or (composite) Video.
See "Connecting a Component Video source device" on page 27 for how to connect the
projector to a component video device.
Better video quality
The S-Video method provides a better quality analog video than standard composite Video.
If you have both composite Video and S-Video output terminals on your Video source
device, you should elect to use the S-Video option.
See "Connecting an S-Video source device" on page 29 for how to connect the projector to
an S-Video device.
Least video quality
Composite Video is an analog video and will result in a perfectly acceptable, but less than
optimal result from your projector, being the least video quality of the available methods
described here.
See "Connecting a composite Video source device" on page 30 for how to connect the
projector to a composite Video device.
Connection
http://www.pureglare.com.au
25
Connecting Audio
The projector has a built-in mono speaker which is designed to provide basic audio
functionality accompanying data presentations for business purposes only. It is not designed
for, nor intended for stereo audio reproduction use as might be expected in home theatre or
home cinema applications. Any stereo audio input (if provided), is mixed into a common
mono audio output through the projector speaker.
If you wish, 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. The
audio output is a mixed mono signal and controlled by the projector Volume and Mute
settings.
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.
The audio connections illustrated in the following sections are provided for informational
purposes only. You need not connect audio to the projector if there is an alternate sound
system available, or if audio is not required.
Connecting a DVI source device
The projector provides a DVI-I input socket that allows you to connect it to a DVI source
device like a DVD player, or a VGA output device like a notebook or desktop computer.
There are three types of DVI connectors: DVI-A, DVI-D, and DVI-I. The DVI-I socket is an
integrated connector which supports both formats: DVI-A, and DVI-D.
DVI-A format is used to carry a DVI signal to an analog (VGA) display, or vice-versa.
Although some signal quality is lost from the signal conversion, it still transmits higher
picture quality than a standard VGA connection.
DVI-D format is used to directly carry a digital signal to a digital display without signal
conversion. The pure digital connection provides faster and higher image quality than an
analog connection, due to the nature of the digital format.
DVI-A and DVI-D formats are non-interchangeable. You cannot connect a DVI-A format
connector to DVI-D equipment and visa-versa. Make sure you know which kind of format
your equipment is fitted with before you purchase any cables. Or you can purchase a DVI-I
cable which will be more useful in any type of DVI connection situation.
Examine your source device to determine if it has an unused DVI or VGA (D-Sub) output
socket available:
•
If so, you can continue with this procedure.
•
If not, you will need to reassess which method you can use to connect to the device.

same time. See "PIP (Picture In Picture) operation" on page 41 for details.
The brightness level of the projected image will change accordingly when you switch
between different input signals. Data (graphic) "PC" presentations using mostly static
images are generally brighter than "Video" using mostly moving images (movies).
The input signal type effects the options available for the Application Mode. See "Selecting
an application mode" on page 38 for details.
Adjusting the projected image
Adjusting the projection angle
The projector is equipped with 1 quick-release adjuster foot and 1 rear adjuster foot. These
adjusters change the image height and projection angle. To adjust the projector:
1.
Press the quick-release button and
lift the front of the projector. Once
the image is positioned where you
want it, release the quick-release
button to lock the foot in position.
Do not look into the lens while the lamp is
on. The strong light from the lamp may
cause damage to your eyes.
Be careful when you press the adjuster
button as it is close to the exhaust vent
where hot air comes from.
2.
Screw the rear adjuster foot to fine tune the horizontal angle.
To retract the foot, hold up the projector while pressing the quick-release button, then
slowly lower the projector. Screw the rear adjuster foot in a reverse direction.
If the projector is not placed on a flat surface or the screen and the projector are not
perpendicular to each other, the projected image becomes trapezoidal. To correct this
situation, adjust the value of Keystone in the DISPLAY menu, on the projector control panel,
or remote control. See "Correcting keystone" on page 35 for details.

projected image displays visible as a trapezoid shape like either of the following:
•
Two parallel sides (left and right, or top and bottom) but is noticeably wider on either
side.
•
No parallel sides.
To correct the image's shape, you can perform the following steps.
1.
Adjust the projection angle. Move the projector to be in front of the center of the
screen with the base of the lens level with the top or bottom edge of the screen.
2.

Selecting the aspect ratio
The 'aspect ratio' is the ratio of the image width to the image height. Most analog TV and
computers are in 4:3 ratio, which is the default for this projector, and digital TV and DVDs
are usually in 16:9 ratio.
With the advent of digital signal processing, digital display devices like this projector can
dynamically stretch and scale the image output to a different aspect than that of the image
input source.
You can change the projected image ratio (no matter what aspect the source is) by pressing
ASPECT on the remote control or in the DISPLAY > Aspect Ratio menu. Select an aspect
ratio to suit the format of the video signal and your display requirements. There are four
aspect ratios available:
In the pictures below, the black portions are inactive areas and the white portions are active
areas.
1.
2.
3.
4.
Auto: Scales an image proportionally to fit the projector's native
resolution in its horizontal width. This is suitable for the
incoming image which is neither in 4:3 nor 16:9 and you want to
make most use of the screen without altering the image's aspect
ratio.
Actual Size: The image is projected as its original resolution, with no
pixel conversion. For input signals with lower resolutions, the
projected image will display smaller than if resized to full screen. You
could adjust the zoom setting or move the projector towards the
screen to increase the image size if necessary. You may also need to
refocus the projector after making these adjustments.
4:3: Scales an image so that it is displayed in the center of the screen
with a 4:3 aspect ratio. This is most suitable for 4:3 images like
computer monitors, standard definition TV and 4:3 aspect DVD
movies, as it displays them without aspect alteration.
16:9: Scales an image so that it is displayed in the center of the screen
with a 16:9 aspect ratio. This is most suitable for images which are
already in a 16:9 aspect, like high definition TV, as it displays them
without aspect alteration.
16:9 aspect ratio is only sourced through the Component Video input when
being fed an appropriate 16:9 aspect signal. See "Connecting a Component Video source
device" on page 27 and "Obtaining a preferred projected image size" on page 19 for details.

Maintenance
Care of the projector
Your projector needs little maintenance. The only thing you need to do on a regular basis is
to keep the lens clean and to clean the dust filter to prevent overheating.
See "Cleaning the lens" and "Cleaning and replacing the dust filter" below for details.
Never remove any parts of the projector except the lamp and dust filter. Contact your dealer
if other parts need replacing.
Cleaning the lens
Clean the lens whenever you notice dirt or dust on the surface.
•
Use a canister of compressed air to remove dust.
•
If there is dirt or smears, use lens-cleaning paper or moisten a soft cloth with lens
cleaner and gently wipe the lens surface.
Never rub the lens with abrasive materials.
Cleaning the projector case
Before you clean the case, turn the projector off using the proper shutdown procedure as
described in "Shutting down the projector" on page 43 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 pH
detergent. Then wipe the case.
Never use wax, alcohol, benzene, thinner or other chemical detergents. These can damage the
case.
Storing the projector
If you need to store the projector for an extended time, please follow the instructions below:
•
Make sure the temperature and humidity of the storage area are within the
recommended range for the projector. Please refer to "Specifications" on page 64 or
consult your dealer about the range.
•
Retract the adjuster feet.
•
Remove the batteries from the remote control.
•
Pack the projector in its original packing or equivalent.
Transporting the projector
It is recommended that you ship the projector with its original packing or equivalent. When
you carry the projector yourself, please use the original box or provided soft carry case.
Cleaning and replacing the dust filter
It is necessary to clean the dust filter periodically. If the filter is not cleaned, it can become
clogged with dust and prevent proper ventilation. This can cause overheating and a
malfunction of the projector.
Maintenance
http://www.pureglare.com.au
53
A warning message like the one pictured to the
right will be displayed for 10 seconds every 500
hours of use to remind you to clean the filter. To
leave the message, press ENTER on the projector or
remote control.
Clean the Air Filter
The air filter should be cleaned
every 500 hours of use.
If you have not done so, please
clean or replace the filter.
OK
To clean the filter
1.
2.
Turn the projector off and wait until the fans
stop running.
Locate the filter case on the back of the
projector.
Filter case
54
3.
Release the filter case from the projector by
pressing the filter case into the slot slightly. The filter case
springs out of the slot.
4.
Pull out the filter case.
5.
Use a small vacuum cleaner designed for
computers and other office equipment to clean the
filter sponge. Or use a soft brush (such as a clean
artist's paintbrush) to gently sweep the dust on the
filter away.
If the dirt is difficult to remove or the filter is
broken, replace it with the supplied spare filter
sponge. See "Replacing the filter sponge" next
page.
Maintenance
http://www.pureglare.com.au
6.
7.
8.
Refit the filter case by aligning and inserting it into
the projector slot.
Press the case back until it clicks into place.
Turn the projector back on.
If the case is not correctly seated in place, the
projector will display an on-screen message as
pictured to the right every three minutes.
WARNING
The message will display 3 times for a 10-second
duration each, if no further action is taken.
Check the Air Filter
The air filter is not installed well.
Please reinstall again.
OK
Then a second message as pictured to the right
displays to warn of shutdown in 1 minute.
You can re-attach the case correctly anytime before
the projector shuts down. That means you have 1011 minutes to get the re-attachment done from the
time the first warning message was displayed. The
projector will return to normal operation.
Power Off
The air filter is not installed well.
Please reinstall again.
Otherwise, the projector will be
turned off in 60 seconds.
Replacing the filter sponge
If you find the dirt is hard to remove from the filter sponge or the sponge is broken, replace
it.
1.
Carefully peel the filter sponge away from the filter case.
See that there are small plastic pins along the edges to
position and retain the sponge into place. Lift the sponge
up off these pins taking care to prevent them from
breaking off.
2.
Attach the supplied new filter sponge to the filter case.
Make sure that the tiny holes securely fit onto the case's
pins.

Lamp information
Calculation of 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:
Total (equivalent) lamp hour
= 3/4 (hours used in Economic mode) +1 (hours used in normal mode)
See "Lamp Mode (Normal)" on page 51 for more information on Economic mode.
The lamp hour in Economic mode is calculated as 3/4 of that in normal mode. That is, using
the projector in Economic mode helps to extend the lamp hour by 1/3.
Warning message
When the Lamp indicator lights up red or a message appears suggesting it is time to replace
the lamp, please install a new lamp or consult your dealer. An old lamp may cause a
malfunction in the projector and in some instances the lamp may explode.
The Lamp indicator light and Temperature warning light will light up if the lamp becomes
too hot. Turn the power off and let the projector cool for 45 minutes. If the Lamp or Temp
indicator still lights up after turning the power back on, please contact your dealer. See
"Indicators" on page 60 for details.
The following Lamp warning displays will remind you to change the lamp.
