Important safety instructions
Your projector is designed and tested to meet the latest standards for safety of 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
deformed or even cause a fire. To
temporarily turn off the lamp, press
BLANK on the projector or remote
control.

Safety Instructions (Continued)
7.
10.
The lamp becomes extremely hot
during operation. Allow the projector
to cool for approximately 45 minutes
prior to removing the lamp assembly
for replacement.
11.
8.
Do not operate lamps beyond the
rated lamp life. Excessive operation of
lamps beyond the rated life could
cause them to break on rare occasions.
Do not place this product on an
unstable cart, stand, or table. The
product may fall, sustaining serious
damage.
Do not attempt to disassemble this
projector. There are dangerous high
voltages inside which may cause death
if you should come into contact with
live parts. The only user serviceable
part is the lamp which has its own
removable cover.
Under no circumstances should you
ever undo or remove any other covers.
Refer servicing only to suitably
qualified professional service
personnel.
9.
Never replace the lamp assembly or
any electronic components unless the
projector is unplugged.
12.
4
When the projector is under
operation, you may sense some heated
air and odor from its ventilation grill.
It is a normal phenomenon and not a
product defect.
Important safety instructions
http://www.pureglare.com.au
Safety Instructions (Continued)
13.
Do not place this projector in any of the 14.
following environments.
- Space that is poorly ventilated or
confined. Allow at least 50 cm clearance
from walls and free flow of air around
the projector.
- Locations where temperatures may
become excessively high, such as the
inside of a car with all windows rolled
up.
- Locations where excessive humidity,
dust, or cigarette smoke may
contaminate optical components,
shorten the projector's life span and
darken the image.
15.
Do not block the ventilation holes.
- Do not place this projector on a blanket,
bedding or any other soft surface.
- Do not cover this projector with a cloth
or any other item.
- Do not place inflammables near the
projector.
If the ventilation holes are seriously
obstructed, overheating inside the
projector may result in a fire.
Always place the projector on a level,
horizontal surface during operation.
- Do not use if tilted at an angle of more
than 10 degrees left to right, nor at angle
of more than 15 degrees front to back.
Using the projector when it is not fully
horizontal may cause a malfunction of,
or damage to, the lamp.
- Locations near fire alarms
- Locations with an ambient temperature
above 40°C / 104°F
- Locations where the altitudes are higher
than 3000 m (10000 feet).

Safety Instructions (Continued)
17.
Do not step on the projector or place
any objects upon it. Besides probable
physical damage to the projector, doing
so may result in accidents and possible
injury.
Ceiling mounting 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 possible
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.
18.
19.
Do not place liquids near or on the
projector. Liquids spilled into the
projector may cause it to fail. If the
projector does become wet, disconnect
it from the power supply's power outlet
and call BenQ to have the projector
serviced.
This product is capable of displaying
inverted images for ceiling mount
installation.
Use only BenQ's Ceiling Mount Kit for
mounting the projector and ensure it is
securely installed.
20.
6
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.
Hg - Lamp contains mercury. Manage in
accordance with local disposal laws.

Positioning your projector
Choosing a location
Your projector is designed to be installed in one of four possible installation locations:
1.
Front Table
Select this location with the projector placed
on the table in front of the screen. This is the
most common way to position the projector
for quick setup and portability.
3.
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 Mount Kit
are required for this installation location.
Set Rear Ceiling in the SYSTEM SETUP:
Basic > Projector Position menu after you
turn the projector on.
2.
Front Ceiling
Select this location with the projector
suspended upside-down from the ceiling in
front of the screen.

required.
Set Rear Table 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.
14
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.
4:3 is the native aspect ratio of this projector. 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.

16:9 aspect image scaled
to a 4:3 aspect display area
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).
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 diagrams on page 17, 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).
How to determine the position of the projector for a given
screen size
1.
2.
3.
4.
Select your screen size.
Refer to the table on page 17 and find the closest match to your screen size in the left
columns labelled "Screen Size". Using this value, look across this row to the right to
find the corresponding average distance from screen value in the column labelled
"Distance from Screen in mm". This is the projection distance.
On that same row, look across to the right column and make note of the "Vertical
offset in mm" value. This will determine the final vertical offset placement of the
projector in relation to the edge of the screen.
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.
Positioning your projector
http://www.pureglare.com.au
15
For example, if you are using an 120-inch screen, the recommended projection distance is
1481 mm and the vertical offset is 137 mm.
How to determine the recommended screen size for a
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 on page 17 and find the closest match to your measurement in the
average distance from screen column labelled "Distance from Screen in mm". This is
the projection distance.
3.
Using this value, look across that row to the left to find the corresponding "Screen
Size" 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 in mm" 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 is 1.5 m (1500 mm), the closest match in
the "Distance from Screen in mm" column is 1481 mm. Looking across this row shows that a
120'' (about 3.0 m) screen is required.
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
page 28 for details.

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.

Fine-tuning the image quality in user modes
According to the detected signal type, there are some user-definable functions available
when User 1 or User 2 is selected. Based on your needs, you can make adjustments to these
functions by highlighting them and pressing / on the projector or remote control.
Adjusting Brightness
The higher the value, the brighter the image. And the
lower the setting, the darker the image. Adjust this
control so the black areas of the image appear just as
black and that detail in the dark areas is visible.

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.
On If you don’t need it, select Off.
Off
On is the default and recommended selection for this projector. When Off is selected, the
Color Temperature function is not available.
Selecting a color temperature
The options available for color temperature* settings vary according to the signal type
selected.
1.
T1: With the highest color temperature, T1 makes the image appear the most bluish
white than other settings.
2.
T2: Makes images appear bluish white.
3.
T3: Maintains normal colorings for white.
4.
T4: Makes images appear reddish white.
*About color temperatures:
There are many different shades that are considered to be "white" for various purposes. One
of the common methods of representing white color is known as the “color temperature”. A
white color with a low color temperature appears to be reddish white. A white color with a
high color temperature appears to have more blue in it.
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
adjustments.
To adjust the settings:
1.
Go to the PICTURE menu and highlight 3D Color Management.

2.
Press Mode/Enter on the projector or remote control and the 3D Color Management
page displays.

Press to highlight Hue and press / to select its range. Increase in the range will
include colors consisted of more proportions of its two adjacent colors.
Please refer to the illustration to the right for
how the colors relate to each other.
5.
For example, if you select Red and set its
range at 0, only pure red in the projected
picture will be selected. Increasing its range
will include red close to yellow and red close
to magenta.
Press to highlight Saturation and adjust its
values to your preference by pressing / .
Every adjustment made will reflect to the
image immediately.
RED
Yellow
GREEN
Cyan

For example, if you select Red and set its
value at 0, only the saturation of pure red will be affected.
Saturation is the amount of that color in a video picture. Lower settings produce less
saturated colors; a setting of “0” removes that color from the image entirely. If the saturation
is too high, that color will be overpowering and unrealistic.

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 and case clean.
Never remove any parts of the projector except the lamp. 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 use any type of abrasive pad, alkaline/acid cleaner, scouring powder, or volatile
solvent, such as alcohol, benzene, thinner or insecticide. Using such materials or
maitaining prolonged contact with rubber or vinyl materials may result in damage to the
projector surface and cabinet material.
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, lint-free cloth.

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:
For the MP772 ST:
Total (equivalent) lamp hour
= 1 (hours used in Economic mode) + 4/3 (hours used in normal mode)
For the MP776 ST:
Total (equivalent) lamp hour
= 1 (hours used in Economic mode) + 3/2 (hours used in normal mode)
See "Setting Lamp Mode as Economic" below for more information on Economic mode.
To obtain the lamp hour information:
1.
Press Menu/Exit and then press / to highlight the SYSTEM SETUP: Advanced
menu.
2.
Press to highlight Lamp Settings and press Mode/Enter.
Mode/Enter The Lamp Settings page
displays.
3.
You will see the Equivalent Lamp Hour information displaying on the menu.
4.
To leave the menu, press Menu/Exit.
Menu/Exit
You can also get the lamp hour information on the INFORMATION menu.
Extending lamp life
The projection lamp is a consumable item that normally can last up to 3000-4000 (for the
MP772 ST) or 2000-3000 (for the MP776 ST) hours with proper usage. To keep the lamp life
as long as possible, you can do the following settings via the OSD menu.
• Setting Lamp Mode as Economic
Using Economic mode reduces system noise and power consumption by 20%. If the
Economic mode is selected, the light output will be reduced and result in darker projected
pictures.
Setting the projector in Economic mode also extends the lamp operation life. To set
Economic mode, go into the SYSTEM SETUP: Advanced > Lamp Settings > Lamp Mode
menu and press / .
• Setting Auto Power Off
This function allows the projector to turn off automatically if no input signal is detected
after a set period of time to prevent unnecessary waste of lamp life.
To set Auto Power Off
Off, go into the SYSTEM SETUP: Basic > Auto Power Off menu and
press / . The time period can be set from 5 to 30 minutes in 5-minute increments. If the
preset time lengths are not suitable for your presentation, select Disable.
Disable The projector will
not automatically shut down in a certain time period.

Accessibility Requirements for Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Section
508
BenQ's commitment to accessible products allows us to support government in making
accessible technology choices BenQ's LCD monitors and projectors are compliant with
Section 508 guidelines by including the assistive features as below:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
BenQ's monitors have colored "Power" indicators. While the indicator shows green, it
means that the monitor is using the full power. While the indicator shows yellow or
amber, it means that the monitor is in suspend or sleep mode and is using less than 2
watts of electricity.
BenQ's monitors have a variety of settings of pre-programmed flicker-free timing to
make the screen shown on the monitor readily accessible. The default timing setting is
automatically turned on every time the monitor is powered up, and thus reduces the
hassle of user intervention.
BenQ's monitors and projectors have options for brightness and contrast adjustments
that text and images could be displayed differently to meet the demands of the visually
impaired. Other similar adjustments are also available by using the On-Screen Display
(OSD) controls on the products.
BenQ's monitors and projectors include user-selectable color controls, such as color
temperature selections (Monitor: 5800K, 6500K and 9300K, Projector: 5500K, 6500K,
7500K and 9300K), with a wide range of contrast levels.
BenQ's multimedia monitors and projectors usually have one or two speakers for audio
performance which allow users (including hearing impaired) to interact with the
computer systems connected. Speaker controls are typically located on the front-panel.
Firmware of BenQ's monitors and projectors contain unique product information that
helps computer systems to identify BenQ products and activate their Plug-and-Play
function when connected.
All BenQ's monitors and projectors are compatible with the PC99 standard. For
example, connectors are color-coded to help users easily connecting products to
computer systems correctly.
Some models of BenQ's monitors and projectors contain additional USB and DVI ports
for connection to more devices such as a special headphone to assist the hearing
impaired.
All BenQ monitors and projectors come with user manuals on compact discs which
could be easily read by commercial software such as Adobe Reader via a connected
computer system. These documents are also available on the BenQ's web site
(www.BenQ.com). Other types of documents may be available upon requests.
BenQ's customer service provides answers and assistance to all our customers through
phone calls, facsimiles, e-mails, or web sites.
