Positioning your projector
Choosing a location
Your projector is designed to be installed in one of four possible installation locations:
1. Floor in front of screen;
2. Ceiling in front of screen;
3. Floor at rear of screen; or
4. Ceiling at rear of screen.
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.
1. Floor front:
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.
3. Floor rear:
Select this location with the projector placed near the
floor behind the screen.
Note that a special rear projection screen is required.
*Set Floor Rear after you turn the projector on.
2. Ceiling Front:
Select this location with the projector suspended 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 Ceiling Front after you turn the projector on.
4. Ceiling Rear:
Select this location with the projector suspended 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 Ceiling Rear after you turn the projector on.
*To set the projector position:
1. Press MENU on the projector or remote control and then press
System Setup menu is highlighted.
2. Press / to highlight Projector Position and press
position is selected.

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 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.
This projector is equipped with a movable lens. See "Shifting the projection lens vertically" below for details. You
can see the diagrams on pages 14 and 15 for the vertical offset values in the dimension tables that are measured
when the lens is shifted fully up or down.
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 separate tables of dimensions for both 16:9 and 4:3 screen ratios 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).
Shifting the projection lens vertically
The vertical lens shift control provides flexibility for installing your projector. It allows the projector to be
positioned slightly above or below the top level of the projected images.
The lens shift (offset) is expressed as a percentage of the projected image height. It is measured as an offset from
the projected image's vertical center. The projector is equipped with + 120% and - 80% vertical lens shift. You
can shift the projection lens upwards or downwards within the allowable range depending on your desired image
position.
To adjust the vertical position of the projection lens:
1. Press LENS or / (when the OSD menu is not activated) on the
Picture -- Advanced
remote control, or LENS SHIFT / on the projector to display the
adjustment page.
(Pressing ENTER in the Picture -- Advanced > Lens Shift menu
performs the same function.)
2. To raise the projected image, press on the remote control or Lens
Shift on the projector.

Determine the aspect ratio of your screen, 16:9 or 4:3?
Refer to the table and find the closest match to your screen size in the left columns labelled "Screen
Dimensions". 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. Decide the exact height of your projector according to the position of your screen and the adjustable
vertical lens shift range.
For example, if you are using an 120-inch, 4:3-aspect-ratio screen, please refer to "4:3 (standard) ratio screen
dimension table". The average projection distance is 495 cm.

How to determine the position of the projector for a given screen size
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. Determine the aspect ratio of your screen, 16:9 or 4:3?
2. Measure the distance between the projector and where you want to position the screen. This is the
projection distance.
3. 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.
4. 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.
For example, if you have a 16:9-aspect-ratio screen and your measured projection distance was 4.5m (450cm),
please refer to "16:9 (widescreen) ratio screen dimension table". The closest match in the "Average" column is 449
cm. Looking across this row shows that an 100-inch 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 picture distortion" on page 23 for details.

Connecting with video equipment
You can connect the projector to any type of video equipment, such as a VCR, DVD player, digital tuner, cable or
satellite decoder, video game console or digital camera. You can also connect it to a desktop or laptop PC or
Apple Macintosh system. However, it has no built-in speakers and cannot be connected to audio equipment.
The projector can be connected to multiple video equipment at the same time by using different cables. All you
need to do is select the appropriate input for the projector to display.
Best video quality
The best available video connection method is HDMI. HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) supports
uncompressed video data transmission between compatible devices like DTV tuners, DVD players and displays
over a single cable. It provides pure digital viewing and listening experience.
See "Connecting HDMI devices" on page 17 for how to connect the projector to a HDMI device.
The RGBHV also provides high video quality that transmits Red, Green, Blue, Horizontal and Vertical sync
signals separately on its own conductor.
See "Connecting RGBHV devices" on page 17 for how to connect the projector to a RGBHV device.
The next best video signal is Component Video (not to be confused with composite Video). Digital TV tuner and
DVD players output Component Video natively, so if available on your devices, this should be your connection
method of choice in preference to (composite) Video.
See "Connecting component-video devices" on page 17 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.
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 S-Video or video devices" on page 18 for how to connect the projector to an S-Video or
composite Video device.
Preparations
When connecting a signal source to the projector, be sure to:
1. Turn off all equipment before making any connections.
2. Use only the correct type cables for each source with proper type plugs.
3. Ensure that all cable plugs are firmly fitted to the equipment sockets.
Note that all cables shown in the following connection diagrams may not be supplied with the projector
(See "Shipping contents" on page 6 for details). Most cables are commercially available from electronics
stores.

Video cable
You need only connect S-Video or composite Video cable from the same device, never both at the same time. You
should also connect the separate audio cable to a suitable audio amplifier.
If you have already made a Component Video connection between the projector and the video source
device, you need not connect to this device again using an S-Video or composite Video connection as this
makes an unnecessary second connection of poorer picture quality. You need only connect using a
composite Video connection if both Component Video and S-Video are not supplied on the video source
device (for example, with some analog video cameras).

has been selected, please check that the video source device is turned on and operating correctly. Also
check that the signal cables have been connected correctly.
Many laptops do not turn on their external video ports when connected to a projector. Usually a key
combination like Fn + F3 or CRT/LCD key turns the external display on/off. Locate a function key labeled
CRT/LCD or a function key with a monitor symbol on the laptop. Press Fn and the labeled function key
simultaneously. Refer to your laptop’s documentation to discover your laptop’s key combination.

Adjusting the projected image
Adjusting the projection angle
There are four adjuster feet on the bottom of the projector. These can be used if
necessary to change the projection angle. Screw the feet in or out as appropriate
to aim and level the projection angle.
If the screen and the projector are not perpendicular to each other, the
projected image becomes vertical trapezoidal. To correct this problem, see
"Correcting picture distortion" on page 23 for details.
Correcting picture distortion
Keystoning occurs when the projector is not perpendicular to the screen and is where the projected picture
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 picture'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. If the picture is stilled distorted, or the projector is unable to be positioned as described above, you will
need to manually correct the picture.
• Using the remote control or projector
i. Press one of the Arrow keys on the remote control ( , ) or
projector ( / , / ) to display the Keystone page.
ii. See step iv below for further operation.
• Using the OSD menu
i. Press MENU and then press / until the Display menu is
highlighted.
ii. Press to highlight Keystone and press ENTER. The Keystone page
displays.
iii. Highlight 2D Keystone and press ENTER. The keystone correction
page displays.
iv. Press the key whose keystone icon is similar to the shape of the
projected picture. Continue pressing the same key or press the other
keys until you are satisfied with the shape.
The values on the lower portion of the page change while pressing.
When the values reach their maximum or minimum with repeated
key presses, the picture's shape will stop changing. You will not be
able to change the picture further in that direction.

*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.

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 to favorite colors. When you select
each color, you can independently adjust its color range and saturation according to your preference.
To adjust and store the settings:
1. In the Picture -- Advanced menu, highlight Color Management and
Picture -- Advanced
press ENTER. The Color Management page displays.
2. Highlight Primary Color and press / to select a color from among
Red, Yellow, Green, Cyan, Blue, and Magenta.
3. Press to highlight Range and press / to select the color range you
wish to make adjustment. The bigger the range, the more proportions of
its two adjacent colors the color contains.

Please refer to the illustration to the right for how the colors relate to
each other. For example, if you select Red and set its range at 0, only pure
red is selected. Increasing its range will include both the red color close to
yellow and red color close to magenta.
Press to highlight Saturation and adjusts the color saturation level by
pressing / .
If you select Red and set its range at 0, only the saturation of the 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.

Selecting the aspect ratio
The "aspect ratio" is the ratio of the image width to the image height. Digital TV is usually in 16:9 ratio, which is
the default for this projector, and most analog TV signals and DVDs are in 4:3 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. Images can be stretched in a
linear manner so the whole of the image is stretched equally, or non-linearly, which distorts the image.
To change the projected picture ratio (no matter what aspect the source is):
•
Using the remote control
Press one of the aspect ratio buttons to suit the format of the video signal and
your display requirements.
•
Using the OSD menu
1.
2.
3.
Press MENU and then press / until the Display menu is highlighted.
Press to highlight Aspect Ratio.
Press / to select an aspect ratio to suit the format of the video signal
and your display requirements.
About the aspect ratio
1.
2.
3.
Anamorphic (ANA): Scales an image so that it is displayed in the center
of the screen with a 16:9 aspect ratio. This setting stretches and resizes
linearly, except that it treats the vertical and horizontal dimensions
independently. It stretches the height of the source image until it reaches
the full projected height, and stretches the width of the source image
until it reaches the full projected width. This may alter the projected
aspect, depending upon the original aspect of the source image.
Anamorphic is most suitable for images which are already in a 16:9
aspect, like high definition TV, as it displays them without aspect
alteration.
4:3: Scales a picture so that it is displayed in the center of the screen with
a 4:3 aspect ratio. This is most suitable for 4:3 pictures like computer
monitors, standard definition TV and 4:3 aspect DVD movies, as it
displays them without aspect alteration.
Letter Box (LB): Scales a picture to fit the projector’s native resolution in
its horizontal width and resize the picture’s height to the 3/4 of the
projection width. This may produce a picture greater in height than can
be displayed, so part of the picture is lost (not displayed) along the top
and bottom edges of the projection. This is suitable for the display of
movies which are presented in letter box format (with black bars on the
top and bottom).

Wide: Stretches the picture horizontally in a non-linear manner, that is,
the edges of the picture are stretched more than the center of the picture
to prevent distortion of the central part of the picture. This is suitable for
occasions where you want to stretch the width of a 4:3 aspect picture to
the width of a 16:9 aspect screen. It does not alter the height. Some
widescreen movies have been produced with their width squashed down
to the width of a 4:3 aspect, and are best viewed when restretched back to
their original width using this setting.

Care of the projector
Your projector needs little maintenance. The only thing you have to do on a regular basis is keep the lens clean
and clean or replace the air filter. Never remove any parts of the projector except the lamp or the air filter.
Contact your dealer or local BenQ Customer Service Centre if the projector fails to operate as expected.
Cleaning the lens
Clean the lens whenever you notice dirt or dust on the surface. Before you attempt to clean the lens, turn the
projector off, unplug the power cable, and leave it several minutes to cool completely.
1. Use a canister of compressed air to remove dust. (Available from building hardware or photographic
suppliers.)
2. If there is stubborn dirt or smudge marks, use a proper photographic lens brush or moisten a clean soft lens
cloth with lens cleaner to gently wipe the lens surface.
Never touch the lens with your finger or rub the lens with abrasive materials. Even paper towels can
damage the lens coating. Only ever use a proper photographic lens brush, cloth, and cleaning solution. Do
not attempt to clean the lens while the projector is switched on or is still hot from previous use.
Cleaning the projector case
Before you attempt to clean the case, turn the projector off, unplug the power cable, and leave it several minutes
to cool completely.
1. To remove dirt or dust, wipe the case with a soft, dry, lint-free cloth.
2. To remove stubborn dirt or stains, moisten a soft cloth with water and a neutral 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:
1. Make sure the temperature and humidity of the storage area are within the recommended range for the
projector. Please refer to the Spec. page in this manual or consult your dealer about the range.
2. Retract the adjuster feet.
3. Remove the batteries from the remote control.
4. 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 a soft carry case.
Cleaning and replacing the dust filter
The message to the right displays periodically every 500 hours
use. You can also use the Advanced Setup > Dust Filter > Dust
Filter Hours menu or the Information > Dust Filter Hours
menu to check how long the filter has been used. 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. Should the projector filter become seriously clogged
with dust, it can cause over-heating inside of the projector.
WARNING
FILTER CLEAN REMIND NOTICE
Please check if the filter is clean.
Clean the filter or replace
with a new one.
