Important Note: More detailed operating instructions for the projector appear in the instruction manual. If you
need to view the full manual at anytime, just visit this item on our website and click the link to the appropriate
manual on the Item Details tab.
Setup
1. Remove the above items from the box and place them on a stand or table facing the screen or wall you
want to project the picture onto. If present, remove the lens cap from the projector.
2. Turn down the master volume and the channels 1,2, and 3 volume controls on the sound system.
3. Connect each item's power cord to the item and to power. The sound system and the projector use the
same type of power cord, they are interchangeable. A three-way power adapter is included if needed.
4. Connect the composite video cable (yellow ends) between the yellow video out connector on the DVD
player and the s-video connector on the projector. An adapter is included, and should be pre-connected
to the video cable. With the Optoma DX623 projector, no adapter is needed.
5. Connect the RCA audio cable (red and white ends) to the red and white audio out on the DVD player,
and to the similar red and white RCA in connectors on channel three on the front of the sound system.
6. WHEN SETTING UP PROJECTOR AT HIGH ALTITUDES: From the Menu, select Options, then
High Altitude. Select On. Please ensure that High Altitude mode is on each time you power on the
projector to make sure the fans cool properly.
Adjustment
1. Press the power button on the DVD player. Press the power button on the projector to turn it on. In
about a minute an image should start to appear on your screen as the projector warms up. If after a few
seconds, the screen still shows a small image that says “searching”, press the “Source” button on top of
the projector until the image says “Video 1 – Searching”. A few seconds later the blue background
image from the DVD player should appear. (See troubleshooting below if it does not.)
2. Move the projector closer to the screen if the image is too large, and farther from the screen if the
image is too small. Adjust the foot on the front of the projector to point the image up or down to match
the height of your screen.
3. Use the menus on the projector to adjust the shape of the image if it is not square with your screen.
4. Turn the lens ring on the front of the projector to adjust the focus until the image is sharp.
5. Flip the power switch on the back of the sound system to on. Turn the channel 3 volume control about
halfway up, and the master volume control about one-quarter of the way up (it can be very loud
otherwise).
6. Insert your DVD into the DVD player. Use the remote control to press play on your movie. You should
hear sound from the sound system, and see the movie playing on your screen. Adjust the sound
system volume as desired.

Troubleshooting
1. Nothing appears on the screen at all, screen is dark:
If the projector has a lens cap, make sure the lens cap has been removed.
Make sure there is power to the projector and it is turned on (power button should be lit up).
Turn the projector all the way off and back on. If the screen is still dark, the projector may be
malfunctioning.
2. Projector only says “searching”, and does not show the image from the DVD player.
Make sure the DVD player is turned on. (Light should be red.) Make sure the cable with yellow ends
is connected from the yellow video out on the DVD player. Make sure that same cable is connected
to the yellow video in on the projector. If connection is ok, review adjustment step 1 above.
3. No sound from the sound system.
Make sure your DVD is playing and there is sound on that portion of the movie.
Make sure the sound system is turned on and has power (blue light should show on front.)
Double-check the connections in setup step 5 above.
4. DVD skips or won't play.
Make sure the DVD is clean. Some discs are difficult to play or incompatible. In a pinch, you can
connect another DVD player such as one from your living room using the same cables.
Shutdown
Press the power button twice to turn the projector off, then wait until the cooling fan turns off before
unplugging the projector power cord. This allows the projector to cool safely before losing power.
Disconnect all cords and re-package in the original box.
