Important Safety Information
WARNING: Never look into the projector lens when the lamp is turned on; the bright light can damage your eyes.
Never let children look into the lens when it is on. Never open any cover on the projector, except the lamp and
filter covers. Dangerous electrical voltages inside the projector can severely injure you. Except as specifically
explained in this User’s Guide, do not attempt to service this product yourself. Refer all servicing to qualified service
personnel.
WARNING: The projector and its accessories come packaged in plastic bags. Keep plastic bags away from small
children to avoid any risk of suffocation.
Caution: When you replace the lamp, never touch the new lamp with your bare hands; the invisible residue left by
the oil on your hands may shorten the lamp life. Use a cloth or glove to handle the new lamp.

Setting Up the Projector
T
his chapter tells you how to set up the projector and connect it to a
laptop computer or video source. If you need to connect the projector
to a desktop or workstation computer, see Appendix A.
You’ll find instructions for the following in this chapter:
■
Positioning the projector
■
Connecting to a laptop computer
■
Connecting to video sources
Setting Up the Projector 9
720-730.book Page 10 Thursday, October 30, 2003 11:32 AM
Positioning the Projector
Before connecting the projector, you need to decide where to place it.
The location you choose depends on the size of the room and what
you are projecting.
caution
Don’t hold or lift the
projector by the lens, or
you may damage it.
note
It’s easier to position the
projector when the screen is
directly in front of the room.
If the screen is placed
diagonally in a corner, it’s
much more difficult to aim
the projector correctly at the
screen and get a rectangular
image.
■
Place the projector on a sturdy, level surface, between
3.2 and 38.5 feet from the screen.
■
Make sure there is plenty of space for ventilation around and
under the projector.
■
Make sure the projector is within 6 feet of an electrical outlet or
extension cord and within 5 feet of your computer and/or video
source.
■
Place the projector directly in front of the center of the screen,
facing the screen squarely. Otherwise, your image will not be
rectangular.
Most presenters find it convenient to place the projector in front of
the audience, leaving as much space as possible between the projector
and the screen to get a good-sized image. This lets the presenter stand
in the front of the room, face the audience, and remain close enough
to the equipment to be able to control it.
Use the figure below as a guideline to help you determine how far
from the screen to place the projector. Image size generally increases
with distance, but may vary depending on how you position the zoom
ring and whether you have adjusted the image size with other settings.
33.2 to 38.5 feet

Setting Up the Projector
6.5 to 7.5 feet
3.2 to 3.7 feet
720-730.book Page 11 Thursday, October 30, 2003 11:32 AM
If you place the projector below the level of the screen, you’ll have to
tilt it up by extending the feet as shown. Tilting the projector upward
causes the image to lose its rectangular shape, but the Auto Keystone
feature corrects the distortion automatically. If the image does not
regain its rectangular shape, the Auto Keystone feature may have been
disabled. To turn it on or for more information on keystone
correction refer to the next chapter.
If you place the projector level with the bottom of the screen, the
image will be rectangular and you won’t have to adjust it. If you place
the projector higher than the bottom of the screen, the image will still
be rectangular, but you won’t be able to fill the whole screen with the
image.
note
After positioning the
projector, you may want to
connect a Kensington
MicroSaver anti-theft device
to the lock port on the
projector’s left side. You can
purchase this from EPSON;
see page 7.

720-730.book Page 12 Thursday, October 30, 2003 11:32 AM
Connecting to a Laptop Computer
note
To connect to desktops and
other computer systems, see
Appendix A. If you have an
iBook with an RCA videoout port, follow the
instructions for connecting to
a video device on page 16.
You can connect the PowerLite projector to any computer that has a
standard video output (monitor) port, including PC notebook and
laptop computers, Macintosh PowerBooks and iBooks, and hand-held
devices.
Connecting the Computer Cable
Before you start, make sure your computer and the projector are
turned off.
1. Connect one end of the computer cable to the projector’s
Computer/Component Video port.
2. Connect the other end of the computer cable to your laptop’s
video-out or monitor port.
If you’re using a PowerBook or iBook and you can’t connect the
cable, you may need to use the Macintosh desktop adapter as
shown on page 79 (available from EPSON; see page 7).
note
3. Tighten the screws on the connectors.
Laptop configurations vary.
See your computer manual
for the location of the ports
needed to connect your
projector.
If you don’t need to make any other connections, you can plug in
your projector and turn it on. See page 20 for instructions.

720-730.book Page 13 Thursday, October 30, 2003 11:32 AM
Connecting the Cable for Remote Mouse
Control
Using the remote control as a wireless mouse lets you click through
slideshow-style presentations, such as PowerPoint, from up to 20 feet
away (for details, see page 34). This gives you more flexibility in
delivering your presentation, since you won’t need to stand near your
computer.
1. Locate the USB mouse cable and connect one end of the cable to
the projector’s USB port.
2. Connect the other end of the cable to the external mouse port or
USB port on your laptop, as shown.
3. If necessary, configure your laptop to work with an external
mouse.
If you don’t need to make any other connections, you can plug in
your projector and turn it on. See page 20 for instructions.
Setting Up the Projector 13
720-730.book Page 14 Thursday, October 30, 2003 11:32 AM
Amplifying Computer Audio
Your laptop probably has its own sound system; however, it may not
be adequate for your presentation. If you need more volume, you can
connect a computer audio cable to take advantage of the projector’s
built-in amplifier and speaker. You can obtain a computer audio cable
(3.5-mm stereo miniplug cable) from a computer or electronics dealer.
1. Connect one end of the audio cable to the Audio In jack on the
projector.
2. Connect the other end of the audio cable to your laptop’s
headphone jack or
audio-out jack. (Jack locations vary; see

Maintaining and
Transporting the Projector
Y
our projector needs little maintenance. All you need to do on a
regular basis is keep the lens clean. Any dirt or smears on the lens may
show up on your projected image.
warning
Before you clean any part
of the projector, turn it
off and unplug the power
cord. Never open any
cover on the projector,
except the lamp and filter
covers. Dangerous
electrical voltages in the
projector can injure you
severely. Do not try to
service this product
yourself, except as
specifically explained in
this User’s Guide. Refer
all other servicing to
qualified service
personnel.
You also need to periodically clean the air filter on the side of the
projector. A clogged air filter can block ventilation needed to cool the
projector and cause overheating.
The only parts you should replace are the lamp and air filter. If any
other part needs replacing, contact your dealer or a qualified servicer.
This chapter covers the following:

Cleaning the Lens
Clean the lens whenever you notice dirt or dust on the surface.
caution
■
Use a canister of compressed air to remove dust.
■
To remove dirt or smears on the lens, use lens-cleaning paper. If
necessary, moisten a soft cloth with lens cleaner and gently wipe
the lens surface.
Do not use glass cleaner
to clean the lens.
Cleaning the Projector Case
Before you clean the case, first turn off the projector and unplug the
power cord.
52
■
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 mild detergent. Then wipe the case.
■
Do not use wax, alcohol, benzene, paint thinner, or other
chemical detergents. These can damage the case.

720-730.book Page 53 Thursday, October 30, 2003 11:32 AM
Cleaning and Replacing the Air Filter
Clean the air filter on the side of the projector after every 100 hours of
use. If it is not cleaned periodically, it can become clogged with dust,
preventing proper ventilation. This can cause overheating and damage
the projector. To clean the air filter, follow these steps:
1. Turn off the projector, allow it to cool down, and unplug the
power cord.
2. To prevent dust from falling into the projector, place the
projector as shown below.
3. To clean the filter, EPSON recommends using a small vacuum
cleaner designed for computers and other office equipment. If you
don’t have one, gently clean the filter using a very soft brush (such
as an artist’s camel-hair brush).
If the dirt is difficult to remove or if the filter is torn, replace it.
Contact your dealer or call EPSON at (800) 873-7766 to obtain a
new one. In Canada, please call (800) 463-7766 to locate a dealer.
4. If you need to replace the filter, lift the tab and pull it upward to
remove the filter.
note
When you get a replacement
lamp for your projector, a
new air filter is included.
You should replace the filter
when you replace the lamp.
5. To install the new filter, first insert the tabs, then press down on
the opposite end of the filter until it clicks in place.

Make sure the lens is not fogged by condensation. You may need
to wait before using the projector after moving it from a cold
environment.
■
Adjust the Sharpness setting on the Video menu (see page 40).
When you change video settings, you should be able to see the
effect on the screen immediately. If you’re projecting from a
computer, you may also need to adjust the Tracking and Sync as
described in the next section. If you don’t like the new settings,

stripes or bands, or some of the characters may look heavy or
blurred. Press the Auto button on the remote control. This resets
the projector’s tracking and sync settings.
■
If further adjustment is needed, you can fine-tune the Tracking
and Sync settings manually using the Video menu as described
on page 40.
1. Fill the screen with an image containing fine detail when
making these adjustments. For example, in Windows you can
select a pattern to appear as your desktop background. If this
option isn’t available, try projecting black text on a white
background.
2. Adjust the Tracking to eliminate vertical stripes.
3. Adjust the Sync to increase the sharpness of the image.

Solving Problems with the Remote
Control
The projector doesn’t respond to remote control commands.
■
Make sure the tape has been removed from the battery tray as
described on page 32.
■
Make sure you are within 20 feet of the projector, and within
range of the projector’s front or back sensor (approximately 30° to
the left or right and 15° above or below).
■
The remote control battery may not be installed correctly or may
be low on power. Change the battery as described on page 32.
■
Dim the room lights and turn off any fluorescents. Make sure the
projector is not in direct sunlight. Strong lighting, especially
fluorescent lights, may affect the projector’s infrared receivers.
■
Turn off any nearby equipment that emits infrared energy, such
as a radiant room heater.
You can’t control the mouse pointer with the remote
control.
■
Make sure the mouse cable is securely connected to both your
computer’s mouse port or USB port and the projector’s mouse
port. For details, see page 13 (for laptops) or Appendix A (for
other systems).
■
Turn off Link 21L in the Advanced menu (see page 46).
■
To use the USB mouse connection on a PC, your system must
have a “clean” installation of Windows 98, Windows Me,
Windows XP or Windows 2000. The connection may not work
correctly if your system was upgraded from Windows 95.

Installing the Projector
The projector can be installed for three different viewing setups:
front projection, ceiling mounting, or rear projection onto a
semi-transparent screen.
To project from overhead, you’ll need to select Ceiling in the
projector’s Advanced menu. To project from the rear, select Rear
Proj. See page 46 for more information.
If you’re ceiling-mounting the projector and you place it above screen
level, you’ll have to tilt it down to position the image on-screen. This
causes the image to lose its rectangular shape. You can then correct the
distortion by using the Keystone or Auto Keystone function in the
projector’s menu system (see page 45).
If you place the projector’s lens so it’s level with the top of the screen,
the image will be rectangular and you won’t have to adjust it. If you
place the lens lower than the top of the screen, you’ll have to tilt the
projector upward if you want to fill the whole screen with the image.
Connecting to a PC Desktop Computer
You can connect the projector to any IBM®-compatible PC. This
section includes instructions for the following:
■
Connecting the computer cable

up to 1600 × 1200 pixels. Since 1280 × 1024 pixels is the default
resolution for most leading workstations, your projector is ideal for
displaying workstation video output.
There is no standard for workstation video output. Workstations that
follow the SXGA standard and use the HD15 (standard VGA)
connector won’t need an adapter cable or any special connection
device. However, your system may vary; contact your computer dealer
if you need help connecting your workstation.
