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.

Welcome
The EPSON
® PowerLite ®
7700p is a portable projector offering
3000 ANSI lumens of brightness. From boardrooms to auditoriums,
your full-color presentations and videos will be bright and visible even
in ordinary room lighting.
Images are displayed at a resolution of 1024 × 768 pixels. The new
1.3-inch LCD provides a 400:1 contrast ratio for incredibly vivid
images and clear text. Improved video processing reduces “color noise”
for rich, saturated images. Reduced light leakage and whisper-quiet
operation contribute to theater-quality video.
With EPSON’s patented SizeWise™ chip, the projector supports
computer displays ranging from VGA through UXGA, as well as the
Digital Visual Interface (DVI) format.
You can connect the projector to a wide range of computers, including
IBM® compatible PCs and laptops, Apple® Macintosh,® Power
Macintosh™ series (including G3 and G4 systems), PowerBook ®
computers, many iMac™ and iBook™ series systems, and high-end
workstations such as the Sun ® SPARCstation.™
You can use any of the following video sources: VCR, DVD player,
camcorder, digital camera, or laser disc player, supporting HDTV,
NTSC, PAL, or SECAM video. The projector automatically senses
the video format, which can be composite video, S-Video, or
component video.
Welcome 1
7700.book Page 2 Wednesday, November 1, 2000 6:15 PM
Getting the Most from Your Projector
note
You can connect a maximum
of four sources at the same
time.
Your EPSON PowerLite 7700p is a highly versatile presentation tool.
You can connect it to one or two computer sources and up to three
video sources and easily switch between them. You can also include
sound for up to three of the sources.
Depending on your presentation, you can take advantage of any or all
of these options:
■
Connecting to a laptop or other computer
If you want to connect to a PC laptop or Macintosh PowerBook,
see page 12. To connect to a desktop computer, a workstation, a
computer that outputs video in Digital Visual Interface (DVI)
format, or more than one computer, see Appendix A.
■
Connecting to video sources
You can connect a DVD player, VCR, camcorder, laser disc
player, digital camera, or any other video source to your projector.
You can connect several types of video sources at the same time
(with or without a computer) and easily switch between them.
See page 15 for instructions.
■
Using the remote control
The remote control lets you switch from one computer or video
source to another, with access to picture-in-picture, pointer,
zoom, and many other projector features. For details, see “Using
the Remote Control” on page 29.
By connecting an additional cable, you can also use the remote
control as a wireless mouse. This lets you click through
slideshow-style presentations (such as PowerPoint®) from up to
30 feet away. For more information, see page 38.
■
Including sound in your presentation
If your presentation includes sound, you can connect an audio
cable to use the projector’s built-in stereo speakers. For details, see
page 14 (for laptops) or Appendix A (for other systems).
If you’re permanently installing the projector, you may wish to
connect external speakers or a public address system to the
projector’s Audio Out port; see page 79.

features accessible from your computer, this program lets you
customize the highlighting tools (special effects buttons on the
remote control). For details, see page 78.

Additional Components
Depending on how you plan to use the projector, you may need
additional components:
■
To receive an S-Video signal, you need an S-Video cable. (One is
usually provided with your video device.)
■
To receive a component video signal from a VCR or other video
device, you need a BNC cable (usually provided with the device).
■
To connect two computers to the projector at the same time, you
need a VGA to BNC cable. To amplify the second computer’s
audio through the projector’s sound system, you need an
RCA-to-3.5 mm stereo cable. See your computer or electronics
dealer to obtain these cables.
■
Some older PowerBooks and Macintosh desktop models may
need the Macintosh adapter set shown on page 83 (available from
EPSON; see page 8). Older iMac systems may need a special
adapter to provide a VGA output port; see your computer dealer.
■
Some systems may need an additional cable to use the remote
control as a wireless mouse. If your Macintosh doesn’t have a USB
port, you’ll need a Macintosh mouse cable. If your PC doesn’t
have a USB or PS/2 port, you’ll need a PC serial cable. See your
projector dealer to obtain the correct cable.
■
If you plan to use the EMP Link V software to control the
projector, you’ll need a standard serial cable, which you may
purchase from your computer dealer.
■
To take advantage of the projector’s Digital Visual Interface, you
need a DVI cable, and your computer must be capable of
producing video signals in DVI format (for details, see page 89).
You can purchase this cable from EPSON; see page 8.

Setting Up the Projector
T
his chapter tells you how to set up the projector for a laptop
computer or video presentation. If you need to set up the projector for
a permanent installation or connect it 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
7700.book Page 10 Wednesday, November 1, 2000 6:15 PM
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 square
image.
■
Place the projector on a sturdy, level surface, between
3.6 and 47.6 feet from the screen.
■
Make sure there is plenty of space for ventilation around and
under the projector.
■
Make sure the projector is within 10 feet of a grounded 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 it toward the screen squarely. Otherwise, your image will
not be square.
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.
The dimensions shown are based on using the standard lens.

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 square shape, but you can correct the
distortion by pressing the Keystone button as described in the next
chapter.

If you place the projector level with the bottom of the screen, the
image will be square 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
square, but you won’t be able to fill the whole screen with the image.

Using the Remote Control as a Wireless
Mouse
When you use the remote control as a wireless mouse, you can control
your computer or click through slideshow-style presentations (such as
PowerPoint) from up to 30 feet away. This gives you more flexibility,
since you won’t need to stand near your computer to change slides, for
example.
First make sure you have connected the mouse cable between the
projector and your computer as described on page 13 (for laptops) or
in Appendix A (for other systems). Note that your computer’s mouse
may be disabled when you connect the projector’s mouse cable. If you
have a laptop, you won’t be able to use an external mouse; however,
you may still be able to use the computer’s built-in mouse pointer.

■
To move the mouse pointer on the screen, aim the remote at the
screen and press on the edge of the Enter button with your
thumb—or grasp it between your thumb and finger and tilt it in
the direction you want to move. This button works like the
mouse button on many laptop keyboards.
■
To click (or left-click), press down on the center of the Enter
button. This changes slides in a PowerPoint presentation when
you’re in Slide Show mode.
■
To right-click, press the Esc button.

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 bottom of the
projector. A clogged air filter can block ventilation needed to cool the
projector and keep it from 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 service
person.

7700.book Page 59 Wednesday, November 1, 2000 6:15 PM
Cleaning and Replacing the Air Filter
Clean the air filter at the bottom 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. Turn the projector on its side so that the handle is on top and you
can access the filter easily.
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 in the
United States and Canada to obtain a new one.
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.

Appendix A: Connecting to
Additional Equipment
This appendix explains how to connect the projector to a desktop
computer or Macintosh, high-end workstation, more than one
computer, or a DVI video source. It also provides guidance on setting
up the projector in a permanent installation.
The following information is covered:
■
Installing the projector
■
Connecting to a PC desktop computer
■
Connecting to a desktop Macintosh
■
Connecting to a second computer
■
Connecting to a high-end workstation
■
Connecting to a DVI video source
Appendix A: Connecting to Additional Equipment 77
7700.book Page 78 Wednesday, November 1, 2000 6:15 PM
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, as shown:
front projection
ceiling mounting
rear projection
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 “Setting Advanced Features” on page 53.
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 square shape. You can then correct the
distortion by using the Keystone function in the projector’s menu
system (see “Customizing Projector Features” on page 51) or by using
the Keystone button on the projector’s control panel.
If you place the projector’s lens so it’s level with the top of the screen,
the image will be square 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.
Controlling the Projector from a Computer
If you want to be able to control the projector’s settings from a
computer, you can install the EMP Link V program on the Projector
Software CD-ROM. You’ll also need a serial cable to connect the
projector to the computer.
78
Appendix A: Connecting to Additional Equipment
7700.book Page 79 Wednesday, November 1, 2000 6:15 PM
To install EMP Link V, insert the Projector Software CD-ROM in
your CD-ROM drive and follow the instructions on the screen. The
installation program also installs the EMP Link V User’s Guide on your
hard disk. You can access this manual in the EMP Link V folder for
complete instructions on using the program.
Connecting to an External Audio System
The projector’s internal speakers are loud enough for most rooms.
However, if your installation requires maximum volume and sound
quality, you can connect the projector to external speakers or a public
address (PA) system. If you’ve connected multiple audio and video
sources to the projector, the projector will automatically switch the
audio source along with the video source whenever the user chooses a
different video source. (See “Switching Between Picture Sources” on
page 27 or page 32.)
To connect the projector to an external sound system, you will need
an RCA-to-3.5 mm stereo audio cable, which may be included with
your sound system, or may be purchased from an electronics store.
Before you start, make sure the projector and speakers or PA system
are turned off.
1. Connect the cable’s 3.5-mm stereo miniplug to the projector’s
Audio Out jack.

Connecting to a Second Computer
If you want to connect a second computer to the projector, you need
to use the BNC connectors (labelled Computer 2/Component
Video) on the projector. You’ll need a VGA (D-sub 15-pin) to BNC
cable, which you can purchase from your computer or electronics
dealer.
Because these connectors are also used for component video, you can’t
use a second computer and a component video source at the same
time.
Follow these steps to connect a computer to the Computer 2/
Component Video interface using a BNC cable:
1. Connect the VGA (D-sub 15-pin) end of the cable to the
computer’s video port.
2. Connect the five connectors at the other end of the cable to the
projector’s R/Cr/Pr (red), G/Y (green), B/Cb/Pb (blue), H/CSync
(horizontal sync), and VSync (vertical sync) ports, as shown
below.

3. To display images properly, make sure the BNC option in the
projector’s Setting menu is set to RGB. See page 52 for
instructions.
4. If you want to hear computer-audio through the projector, you’ll
need an RCA-to-3.5 mm stereo cable (available for purchase from
your electronics store or video dealer).
Insert the cable’s 3.5-mm plug into your computer’s audio-out
port. Then attach the RCA connectors at the other end of the
cable to the S-Video/BNC ports on the projector.
Appendix A: Connecting to Additional Equipment 87
7700.book Page 88 Wednesday, November 1, 2000 6:15 PM
5. If you want to use the remote control as a wireless mouse for the
second computer, you need to use either the PS/2 mouse cable or
the USB mouse cable that came with the projector.
Connect the round end of the appropriate mouse cable to the
Mouse 2 port on the projector. Then connect the other end of
the cable to the computer’s mouse or USB port.
Connecting to a High-End Workstation
Your PowerLite projector is capable of remapping input resolutions
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.

7700.book Page 89 Wednesday, November 1, 2000 6:15 PM
Connecting to a DVI Video Source
The projector’s Digital Visual Interface (DVI) receives pictures
directly from your computer in digital format. This lets the projector
display images of greater clarity than can be achieved using a standard
analog VGA connection.
note
You won’t be able to view
images on a separate monitor
when the DVI port is in use.
To project images in digital video format, follow these steps:
1. Connect the computer’s DVI cable to the projector’s DVI port.
