technician.
Avoid volatile liquids
English
13. Never attempt to replace the lamp assembly
until the projector has cooled down and is
unplugged from the power supply.
Never operate the projector immediately after
moving it from a cold location to a hot location.
When the projector is exposed to such a change in
temperature, moisture may condense on the crucial
internal parts. To prevent the projector from
possible damage, do not use the projector for at
least 2 hours when there is a sudden change in
temperature.
Do not use volatile liquids, such as insecticide or
certain types of cleaner, near the projector. Do not
have rubber or plastic products touching the
projector for a long time. They will leave marks on
the finish. If cleaning with a chemically treated
cloth, be sure to follow the cleaning product’s safety
instructions.
Disposal
15. 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. See page 52.
Under no circumstances should you ever
undo or remove any other covers. Refer
servicing only to suitably qualified
professional service personnel.
This product contains the following materials
which are harmful to human bodies and
environment.
•
Lead, which is contained in solder.
•
Mercury, which is used in the lamp.
To dispose of the product or used lamps, consult
your local environment authorities for regulations.

Please keep the original packing for possible future
shipment. If you need to pack your projector after
use, adjust the projection lens to an appropriate
position, put the lens cushion around the lens, and

Overview
1. To open the battery cover, turn the remote
control over to view its back, push on the
finger grip on the cover and slide it down in
the direction of the arrow as illustrated. The
cover will slide off.
2. Remove any existing batteries (if necessary)
and install two new AAA batteries observing the battery polarities as indicated in the base of the battery
compartment. Positive (+) goes to positive and negative (-) goes to negative.
3. Refit the cover by aligning it with the case and sliding it back up into position. Stop when it clicks into
place.
Notes on handling batteries
•
Do not mix old batteries with new ones, or mix different types of batteries.
•
Avoid leaving the remote control and batteries in an excessive hot or humid environment like the
kitchen, bathroom, sauna, sunroom, or in a closed car.
•
Dispose of used batteries according to the battery manufacturer’s instructions and local environment
regulations for your region.
•
If the remote control will not be used for an extended period of time, remove the batteries to avoid
damage to the control from possible battery leakage.
Remote control operation
•
•
Make sure that there is nothing positioned
between the remote control and the infrared (IR)
sensors on the projector that might obstruct the
IR beam from the remote control reaching the
projector.
up to 8 m
The effective range of the remote control is up to 8
meters, and at an angle within 30 degrees of the IR
beam. Always aim straight at the projector, however most screens will also reflect the IR beam to the
projector.
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 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.

Positioning your projector
Choosing a location
Your projector is designed to be installed in one of four possible installation locations.
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:
3. Floor Rear:
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.
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:
4. Ceiling Rear:
Select this location with the projector suspended
from the ceiling in front of the screen.
Select this location with the projector suspended
from the ceiling behind the screen.
Purchase the BenQ Projector Ceiling Mount Kit
from your dealer to mount your projector on the
ceiling.
Note that a special rear projection screen and the
BenQ Projector Ceiling Mount Kit are required for
this installation location.
*Set Ceiling Front after you turn the projector on.
*Set Ceiling Rear after you turn the projector on.

The distance from the projector lens to the screen, the zoom setting, and the video format each factors in
the projected image size.
This projector is equipped with a movable lens. See "Shifting the projection lens" on page 16 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 you are using a 120-inch, 4:3-aspect-ratio screen, please refer to "The screen aspect ratio is 4:3 and the
projected picture is 16:9". The average projection distance is 668 cm.
If you have a 16:9-aspect-ratio screen and your measured projection distance was 4.5 m (450 cm), please
refer to "The screen aspect ratio is 16:9 and the projected picture is 16:9". The closest match in the
"Average" column is 455 cm. Looking across this row shows that a 100-inch screen is required.
Checking the min and max projection distance values in the columns of "Projection distance <D> [cm]"
on page 14 indicates that the 4.5 m measured projection distance will also fit the 90 and 110-inch size
screens. The projector can be adjusted (using the zoom control) to display on these different screen sizes at
the projection distance. Be aware that these different screens have different vertical offset values.
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 26 for details.

Shifting the projection lens
The lens shift control provides flexibility for installing your projector. It allows the projector to be
positioned off the center of the screen.
The lens shift is expressed as a percentage of the projected image height or width. It is measured as an offset
from the projected image’s vertical or horizontal center. You can use the lever to shift the projection lens in
any direction within the allowable range depending on your desired image position.
To use the lens shift lever:
1. Release the lever by turning it counterclockwise.
2. Move the lever to adjust the projected image position.
3. Lock the lever by turning it clockwise.

Lens shift adjustment will not result in a degraded picture quality. In the unlikely event that the image
distortion is produced, see "Adjusting the projected image" on page 25 for details.
Positioning your projector
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. You need only connect the projector to a source device using just
one of the 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:

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 jacks.
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.
Connecting HDMI devices
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. You should use an HDMI cable when making connection between the
projector and HDMI devices.
HDMI device: DVD player, digital tuner, etc.
To make sure you select a correct input source
type for the HDMI signal, see "HDMI Settings" on
page 48 for details.

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).
•
If the selected video image is not displayed after the projector is turned on and the correct video
source 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.

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

In some cases, you may need to optimize the picture quality. To do this,
press AUTO on the projector or remote control. Within 3 seconds, the
built-in Intelligent Auto Adjustment function will re-adjust the values of
Frequency and Clock to provide the best picture quality.
The current source information will be displayed in the corner of the screen
for 3 seconds.
•
The screen will be blank while AUTO is functioning.
•
This function is only available when a PC signal (analog RGB) is
selected.
Fine-tuning the image size and clarity
1. Adjust the projected picture to the size that
you need using the zoom ring.
2. Sharpen the picture by rotating the focus
ring.

*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
press ENTER. The Color Management page is displayed.
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 adjust 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.

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
1. Press ASPECT to show the current setting.
2. Press ASPECT repeatedly to select an aspect ratio to suit the format of
the video signal and your display requirements.
• Using the OSD menu
1. Press MENU on the projector or MENU/EXIT on the remote control,
and then press / until the Display menu is highlighted.
2. Press to highlight Aspect Ratio.
3. Press / to select an aspect ratio to suit the format of the video
signal and your display requirements.

1. 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
16:9 picture
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.
2. 4:3: Scales a picture so that it is displayed in the center of the screen with

3. 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).
4. 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.

Operating in a high altitude environment
We recommend that you activate High Altitude Mode when your environment is higher than 1500 meters
(around 4920 feet) above sea level, or whenever the projector will be used for extended periods of time
(>10 hours) without shutdown.
To activate High Altitude Mode:
1. Press MENU on the projector or MENU/EXIT on the remote control,
and then press / until the Advanced Setup menu is highlighted.
2. Press to highlight High Altitude Mode.
3. Press / to select On. A confirmation message is displayed.
4. Highlight Yes and press ENTER.
Operation under High Altitude Mode may cause a higher decibel
operating noise level because of increased fan speed necessary to improve
overall system cooling and performance.
If you use this projector under other extreme conditions excluding the
above, it may display auto shut-down symptoms, which is designed to
protect your projector from over-heating. In cases like this, you should
switch to High Altitude Mode to solve these symptoms. However, this is
not to state that this projector can operate under any and all harsh or
extreme conditions.

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. Never remove any parts of the projector except the lamp. Contact your dealer or local customer
service center 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.
3. 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 maintaining prolonged contact with
rubber or vinyl materials may result in damage to the projector surface and cabinet material.
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.

Setting the projector in Economic mode also extends the lamp life. To set Economic mode, go to the
Advanced Setup > Lamp Settings > Lamp Power menu and press / .
• Setting Auto Off
This function allows the projector to turn off automatically if no input
source is detected after a set period of time.
To set Auto Off, go to the System Setup > Auto Off menu and press /

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
