Note that the projector will then be able to detect only one
type of video signal.
The type of cable you need to connect the video source to the
projector depends on whether you have composite video, SVideo or G Sync-Video. For composite video, use the video/
audio cable supplied with the projector. For S-Video, use the
S-Video cable and audio cable supplied with your video device
or obtain one from your computer dealer. For G Sync-Video,
use the BNC type cable came with your video source.
■ ■ ■ ■
16
Installation
To connect a video source to the projector:
1. Switch off the projector and video source if they are on.
2. If your composite video uses an RCA-type composite
video connector, you will need the audio/video cable
supplied with the EMP-7500/5500. If your video uses a
S-Video, you will need to provide YOUR OWN S-Video
or use the S-Video cable that came with your video source.
3. For composite video, connect the yellow RCA plug at one
end of the video/audio cable to the projector’s Video
jack. Connect the other yellow RCA plug to the video-out
jack on the video source.
A/V cable
4. Connect the other plugs on the audio/visual cable to the
Audio jacks of the projector: insert the white plug into the
L jack and the red plug into the R jack. Connect the plug
at the other end of the audio/visual cable to the audio
output jacks of the video source.

Connecting to an External Speaker or
PA System
Though the projector’s internal speakers are enough for most
small-size or medium-size rooms, an external speaker can be
connected to achieve the best results for large room
presentations.
A commercially available RCA-to-3.5 mm stereo mini audio
cable or 3.5 mm stereo mini audio cable is required to
connect the projector’s 3.5 mm stereo mini jack to an external
speaker or a PA system. These items can be obtained from
your computer dealer.
1. Check to ensure that both the projector and all sources are
turned off.

Using the Projector
Turning the Equipment On and Off
Always turn on the projector and its attached equipment in
the following order.
1. Projector
2. Computer
3. Video source
4. Audio source
Turning the Projector On and Off
1. Connect the power cord to the projector.
2. Insert the power plug into a wall outlet.
3. Remove the projector lens cap.
4. Turn on the power switch on the back of the projector.
5. Press the power button on the remote control or control
panel. The green operation indicator starts flashing for 30
seconds, and when the green flashing stops, the projecting
image gets full illumination.
♦

alternately. The Resize display changes the VGA(600 x 480)
image into the SVGA(800 x 600) image. The Window display
projects the VGA(600 x 480) image as it is. The projected
image gets smaller than SVGA(800 x 600) image.
With images SVGA(800 x 600 pixels) size, the image is
displayed with the maximum size in both Resize and Window
display. Pressing the Resize button does not make any
change.
With images larger than SVGA(800 x 600 pixels) size (for
example a 1024 x 768 pixels XGA image), you can either
select to display a portion of the projected image (Window
display) or the entire projected image (Resize display).
Each time you press the Resize button, the projected image is
displayed in the following order.
1. The XGA image is reduced to the SVGA size.
2. The projected image is displayed with XGA size, and only
the upper of the right image is projected on the screen..
3. The upper of the left image is projected on the screen.
4. The bottom of the right image is projected on the screen.
5. The bottom of the left image is projected on the screen.
6. The center of the image is projected on the screen.
After the step 6, press the Resize button again to return to the
step 1.

Maintenance
The projector needs little maintenance. You should keep the
lens clean because any dirt or stains will appear on the screen.
You will also need to clean the air filter located at the bottom
of the projector periodically. It is important to keep the air
filter clean because a clogged air filter prevents proper
ventilation which is necessary to cool the projector and
prevent it from overheating.
The only parts you should replace yourself are the lamp and
the air filter. If any other parts need replacing, contact your
EMP-7500/5500 dealer or qualified service personnel.
When cleaning any part of the projector, always switch off and
unplug the projector first.
♦
Warning: Never open any of the covers on the projector except
the lamp and filter covers. Dangerous electrical voltages inside
the projector can cause severe injury. Except as specifically
indicated in this Owner’s Manual, do not attempt to service this
product yourself. Refer all servicing to qualified service
personnel.
■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■
51
Cleaning the Lens
Clean the lens whenever you notice dirt or dust on the
surface. Wipe the lens surface gently with a soft, dry, lint-free
cloth.
To remove dirt or stains on the lens, moisten a soft cloth with
water and a neutral detergent and gently wipe the lens surface.
Cleaning the Projector Case
To clean the projector case, first unplug the power cable. To
remove dirt or dust, wipe the casing with a soft, dry, lint-free
cloth. To remove stubborn dirt or stains, moisten a soft cloth
with water and a neutral detergent. Then wipe the casing.
Do not use alcohol, benzene, thinners or other chemical
detergents as these can cause the casing to warp.
■ ■ ■ ■
52
Maintenance
Cleaning the Air Filter
The air filter, which is located at the bottom of the projector,
should be cleaned after every 100 hours of use. If it is not
cleaned periodically, it can become clogged with dust and
prevent the projector from being ventilated properly. This can
cause overheating and damage the projector.
To clean the air filter:
1. Switch the projector off and unplug the power cable from
the wall socket.
2. Stand the projector with the handle at the top so that the
filter is easily accessible.
♦
Caution: Stand the projector with the handle at the top to
prevent dust from entering the projector.

3. The air filter is attached to the inside of the projector. To
clean the filter you are advised to use a small vacuum
cleaner designed for computers and other office
equipment.
If the dirt is difficult to remove or if the filter is torn,
replace it.
An air filter come with replacement lamps.
Contact your EMP-7500/5500 dealer or call an EPSON
Service Centre.
Be sure to request part number. (ELPLP06)
4. Plug the power cable back into the wall socket.
Replacing the Lamp
The projector lamp typically lasts for about 2000 hours of use.
It is time to replace the lamp when:
• The projected image gets darker or starts to deteriorate.
• The projection lamp indicator (orange flashing).
• The message “LAMP REPLACE” appears on the screen
when the projector lamp comes on.
Contact your local EPSON dealer for a replacement lamp.Use
only replacement lamp part number.(ELPLP06)
♦
Caution: This projector lamp develops high heat and high
pressure during use, so the lamp (bulb) ruptures and burns may
result. To avoid serious injury, before attempting to replace the
lamp, pull out the power cord plug from the outlet and wait for
the lamp (bulb) to cool (wait at least one hour). Then proceed to
replace lamp.
1. Turn off the projector and unplug the power cable.

Problems with the Projector
If you have problems with the projector, first turn it off and
unplug it. Then plug the power cord back in and turn on the
projector. If this does not solve the problem, check the
warning lights at the top of the projector. These lights alert
you to problems with projector operation.
Operation Indicator
Lamp Indicator
Temperature Indicator
See the following pages for information on what to do when
you see these warning lights or encounter other specific
problems with the projector.
❑ The operation indicator is flashing orange and you
cannot turn on the projector.
The lamp is cooling down. Wait until the light turns off and
then turn on the projector.
❑ The operation indicator does not come on.
Turn off the projector, check that the power cable is
connected securely both at the power outlet and the
projector, and press the Power button again.
❑ Projected images get darker or start to deteriorate, or
the lamp indicator is red.
Replace the projector lamp as described on page 54.
■ ■ ■ ■
58
Troubleshooting
❑ The temperature indicator is red.
The projector is overheating, which turns the lamp off
automatically. Let the projector cool for a few minutes,
then turn it back on. Make sure nothing is blocking the
ventilation vents.
The air filter may be clogged. Clean it as described in
Chapter 5 and then let the projector cool for a while.
If the projector continues to overheat after you clean the air
filter, the problem may be caused by damage to the cooling
fan or internal circuits. Contact a qualified service person.
♦
Warning: Except as specifically explained in this User’s Guide,
do not attempt to service this product yourself.

Problems with the Projector
59
Problems with the Image or Sound
❑ An image does not appear on the screen.
Check that the power light is on and the lens cover is off.
Also make sure the cables are installed correctly, as
described in Chapter 1.
The correct image source may not be selected. Press the
Source button on the remote control or the control panel
to choose another image source.
❑ Only part of the computer image is displayed.
If the computer’s output resolution setting is higher than
1024 x 768, the projector resizes the image. If the
computer output is not compatible with this resizing,
choose a different display setting on the computer. In
Windows 3.x, use Windows Setup in the Main program
group. For a Macintosh, choose Control Panels under the
Apple menu and then choose Monitors. In the Monitors
screen, choose Options and make sure Macintosh Hi-Res
Display or another 1024 x 768 display is selected. For
supported display settings, see “Supported Monitor
Displays (EMP-7500)” on page 65 or “Supported Monitor
Displays (EMP-5500)” on page 66.
You also may need to modify existing presentation files if
you created them for a different resolution. See your
software manual for specific information.
❑ The message NO SIGNAL is displayed.
An image source not connected to the projector is selected,
the signal is not being output from the computer, or the
signal is not reaching the projector. Make sure the
connectors are securely attached to both the projector and
the image source. Then check that the image source is
selected correctly. When NO SIGNAL is displayed, you
cannot access the source (computer/video) menu.
■ ■ ■ ■
60
Troubleshooting
❑ A blank screen is displayed.
The computer signal cannot be interpreted by the
projector. Verify the display format (see page 65 or 66).
When you see a blank screen, you cannot access the
projector menus.
❑ The image or parts of the image are blurred or not in
focus.
Adjust the Brightness and Contrast settings on the Video
main menu. If you’re viewing a computer image, also try
adjusting the Comp Tracking and Comp Sync buttons on
the projector’s control panel.
There may be dirt or smears on the lens. Clean the lens as
described in Chapter 4, “Maintenance.”
❑ The colors of the image are not right.
The color balance may be incorrect. If you’re displaying a
computer image, adjust the red, green, and blue settings in
the Video menu. If you’re displaying video, adjust the color
and tint (NTSC only) settings on the Video menu.
❑ There is no sound.
First check that the volume setting is not turned all the way
down and that the audio/visual cable is securely attached to
both the projector and the audio source.
The wrong source is selected. Press either the Computer or
Video button on the remote control or control panel to
select the proper source.
