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 unpack the projector and connect it to
a notebook or desktop computer, to video equipment, and/or to your
local area network.
Follow the instructions in this chapter on:
■
Unpacking the projector
■
Positioning the projector
■
Connecting to a computer
■
Connecting to video equipment
■
Turning the Projector On and Off
11
Unpacking the Projector
After unpacking the projector, make sure you have all these parts:
PDF manuals and
registration CD-ROM
Projector and lens cap
Lens theft
deterrent screw
Power cord
Remote control and
2 AA batteries
VGA computer cable
Password Protected
sticker
Interface label stickers
note
If you mount the projector
on the ceiling, the interface
and button names on the
projector will appear upside
down. Attach the interface
label stickers so that you can
more easily read the names.
Save all packaging in case you need to ship the projector. Always use
the original packaging (or the equivalent) when you need to send the
projector to another location. If you are moving the projector by
hand, use the projector handle. See page 83 for transportation
instructions.
Additional Components
Depending on how you plan to use the projector, you may need
additional components:
■
12
Setting Up the Projector
To receive a component video signal from your video device,
you’ll need a component video cable. One may be provided with
your video equipment.
■
To receive an RGB or component video signal from a video
device that has RGB or component (PrPbY or CrCbY)
connectors, you’ll need a BNC-type video cable. One may be
provided with your video equipment.
Positioning the Projector
If the projector isn’t already installed in the room you’re using, you’ll
probably want to place it on a table in front of the screen. This lets
you stand in the front of the room, face the audience, and remain
close enough to the equipment to be able to control it. Try to leave as
much space as possible between the projector and the screen to get a
good-size image.
note
You can mount the projector
on the ceiling, or place it
behind a translucent screen
for rear projection. See
page 101 for details.
Use the illustrations and tables below to help you determine
placement. Image size increases with distance, but can vary depending
on whether you’ve adjusted the image with vertical lens shift, zoom, or
any other settings.
You can also use the Image Size Calculator on the Epson website.

Also keep these considerations in mind:
■
Place the projector on a sturdy, level surface.
■
Make sure there is plenty of space for ventilation around and
under the projector.
■
Make sure the projector is within 10 feet (3 meters) of a grounded
electrical outlet or extension cord.
Setting Up the Projector 15
note
After positioning the
projector, you may want to
connect a Kensington
MicroSaver® anti-theft
device to the lock port on the
projector. You can purchase
this from Epson; see page 9.
Ideally, you should place the projector directly in front of the center of
the screen, facing it toward the screen squarely. The base of the lens
should be about level with the bottom of the screen.
Projector
Screen
If you place the projector below screen level, you can use the vertical
lens shift dial to raise the lens (see page 29). You can also tilt the
projector up by extending the front adjustable foot. Tilting the
projector causes the image to become “keystone” shaped, but you can
correct the distortion (see page 30).
For instructions on installing the projector in a permanent location,
such as a theater or conference room, see page 101.
Connecting to a Computer
note
To connect a Macintosh
that includes only a Mini
DisplayPort or Mini-DVI
port for video output, you
need to obtain an adapter
that allows you to connect to
the projector's VGA video
port. Contact Apple for
compatible adapter options.
16
Setting Up the Projector
You can connect the projector to any computer that has a standard
video output (monitor) port, including desktop models, PC and
Macintosh computers, and hand-held devices.
If you have the optional wireless mouse receiver, you can use your
remote control as a wireless mouse when projecting from a computer
(page 39).
Connecting to the Computer Port
You can connect to the projector using the VGA computer cable that
came with it (the monitor port on your computer must be a mini
D-sub 15-pin port).
1. If you’re using the VGA computer cable, connect one end to the
projector’s Computer1 port, and the other end to your
computer’s monitor port.
caution
Don’t try to force a
connector to fit a port with a
different shape or number of
pins. You may damage the
port or connector.
2. You may need to change the Input Signal setting in the
projector’s Signal menu to RGB (see page 59).
3. With the optional wireless mouse receiver (see page 39), you can
use the remote control as a mouse.
4. When you’ve finished making any connections, see page 23 for
instructions on turning on the projector and Chapter 2 for
instructions on displaying and adjusting the image.
Setting Up the Projector 17
Connecting to the BNC Connectors
1. Obtain a commercially available standard BNC to VGA video
cable.
2. Plug the BNC connectors into the projector’s B/Cb/Pb, G/Y, and
R/Cr/Pr connectors as shown below. Depending on your
computer’s video card, you may have to connect to the projector’s
V Sync and H/C Sync connectors too. (See your computer
documentation for more information.)
3. Plug the VGA connector on the other end of the cable into your
computer’s monitor port.
4. You may need to change the Input Signal setting in the
projector’s Signal menu to RGB (see page 59).
5. With the optional wireless mouse receiver (see page 39), you can
use the remote control as a mouse.
6. When you’ve finished making any connections, see page 23 for
instructions on turning on the projector and Chapter 2 for
instructions on displaying and adjusting the image.
18
Setting Up the Projector
Connecting to Video Equipment
You can connect several video sources to the projector at the same
time. Before starting, look at your video equipment to determine its
available video output connections:
■
If your video player has a component video port (three connectors
labeled either Y/Cb/Cr or Y/Pb/Pr), see “Connecting a
Component Video Source” on page 21.
■
If you’re using a coax video cable, see “Connecting a Composite
Video Source” on page 20.
BNC connector
(component or
composite video)
■
If your video player has an RGB video port (either a single
connector for a VGA monitor cable or three connectors labeled
R/G/B), see “Connecting an RGB Video Source” on page 22.

Notices
This appendix includes safety instructions and other important information
about your projector.
Important Safety Instructions
Follow these safety instructions when setting up and using the projector:
■
Do not look into the lens when the projector is on. The bright light can
damage your eyes, and is especially dangerous for children and pets.
■
Do not place the projector on an unstable cart, stand, or table.
■
Do not operate the projector on its side, or while tilted to one side.
Do not tilt the projector forward or back at a greater angle than that
specified for vertical keystone correction (see page 106).
■
If the projector is mounted on a ceiling, it should be installed by
qualified technicians using mounting hardware designed for use with
this projector. If the projector is not installed correctly, the projector
may fall from its ceiling mount. This could cause serious injury to
anyone under the mount and could damage the projector.
■
If you use a ceiling mount and apply adhesives to the mount to prevent
the screws from loosening, or if you use lubricants or oils on the
projector, the projector case may crack and the projector may fall from
its ceiling mount. This could cause serious injury to anyone under the
mount and could damage the projector. When installing or adjusting a
ceiling mount, do not use adhesives to prevent the screws from loosening
and do not use oils or lubricants.
■
Do not stand on the projector or place heavy objects on it.
■
Do not use the projector where it may be exposed to rain, water, or
excessive humidity.
■
Unplug the projector from the wall outlet before cleaning. Use a dry
cloth (or, for stubborn dirt or stains, a moist cloth that has been wrung
dry) for cleaning. Do not use liquid or aerosol cleaners, or solvents such
as alcohol, thinner, or benzine.
113
114
Notices
■
Do not use sprays containing flammable gas to clean the lens or filter.
Do not spray a liquid of any kind directly on the projector or its lens. Do
not use the projector where there may be flammable, explosive, or
corrosive gases present in the atmosphere.
■
Do not place containers of liquid on top of the projector. Never spill
liquid of any kind into the projector.
■
Do not use the projector where it may be exposed to smoke, steam, or
excessive dust.
■
Never insert or drop objects of any kind through the projector’s vents or
openings. Do not leave metal, flammable, or foreign objects nearby.
■
Do not use or store the projector or remote control in a hot location,
such as near a heater, in direct sunlight, or in a closed vehicle.
■
Do not block the slots and openings in the projector case. They provide
ventilation and prevent the projector from overheating. Do not operate
the projector on a sofa, rug, or other soft surface. If you are setting up
the projector near a wall, leave at least 7.9 inches (20 cm) of space
between the wall and the air exhaust vent.
■
Do not operate the projector in a closed-in cabinet unless proper
ventilation is provided.
■
If you are using two or more projectors side-by-side, leave at least 2 feet
(60 cm) of space between the projectors to allow for proper ventilation.
■
You may need to clean the air filter and vent. A clogged air filter or vent
can block ventilation needed to cool the projector.
■
Do not store the projector outdoors for an extended length of time.
■
Do not use the projector outside the required temperature range (see
page 108). Doing so may cause an unstable display and could lead to
projector damage.
■
Do not store the projector outside the required temperature range (see
page 108) or in direct sunlight for long periods of time. Doing so may
cause damage to the case.
■
Do not touch the plug during an electrical storm. Otherwise, you may
receive an electric shock.
■
Unplug the projector when it will not be used for extended periods.
Place the projector near an outlet where the plug can be easily
unplugged.
■
Remove the batteries from the remote control if you will not be using
the projector for a long period of time.
■
Unplug the projector from the wall outlet and refer servicing to qualified
service personnel under the following conditions: if it does not operate
normally when you follow the operating instructions, or exhibits a
distinct change in performance; if smoke, strange odors, or strange
noises come from the projector; if the power cord or plug is damaged or
frayed; if liquid or foreign objects get inside the projector, or if it has
been exposed to rain or water; if it has been dropped or the housing has
been damaged.
■
Except as specifically explained in this User’s Guide, do not attempt to
service this product yourself. Refer all servicing to qualified personnel.
Opening or removing covers may expose you to dangerous voltages and
other hazards.
■
Never open any covers on the projector except as specifically explained
in this User’s Guide. Never attempt to disassemble or modify the
projector (including consumables). Refer all repairs to qualified service
personnel.
■
Use the type of power source indicated on the projector. Use of a
different power source may result in fire or electric shock. If you are not
sure of the power available, consult your dealer or power company.
■
If you use the projector in the country where it was purchased, only use
the power cable that came with the projector. If you use the projector in
a country other than where you purchased it, use the correct power cord
for that country.
■
Take the following precautions when handling the plug: Do not
overload wall outlets, extension cords, or power strips. Do not hold the
plug with wet hands. Do not insert the plug into a dusty outlet. Insert
the plug firmly into the outlet. Do not pull the power cord when
disconnecting the plug; always be sure to hold the plug when
disconnecting it. Failure to comply with these precautions could result
in fire or electric shock.
■
Do not place anything that can become warped or damaged by heat near
the exhaust vents. Do not bring your hands or face close to the vents
while projection is in progress.
■
Before you move the projector, make sure its power is turned off, the
plug is disconnected from the outlet, and all cables are disconnected.
■
Do not project images while the detachable lens cover is still attached.
Heat may cause the lens cover to melt, and if you touch the lens cover
you could get burned.
■
Do not block the light coming from the projector with any object. The
object may be damaged or the reflected light may heat the lens and
damage the projector.
■
Do not touch the lens with bare hands.
■
Always attach the lens cover to the lens when not using the projector, to
prevent the lens from becoming dirty or damaged.
Notices 115
■
Never try to remove the lamp immediately after use because it will be
extremely hot. Before removing the lamp, turn off the power and wait at
least an hour to allow the lamp to cool completely.
■
Do not place the source of an open flame, such as a lit candle, on or near
the projector.
■
Do not modify the power cord. Do not place heavy objects on top of the
power cord or bend, twist, or pull it excessively. Keep the power cord
away from hot electrical appliances. Do not place the projector where
the cord can be walked on.
■

state and local regulations regarding disposal or recycling. Do not put in
the trash.
■
The gases inside the lamp contain mercury vapor. If the lamp breaks,
ventilate the room to prevent gases contained in the lamp from being
inhaled or coming in contact with the eyes or mouth.
■
If the projector is mounted overhead and the lamp breaks, small pieces
of glass may fall down when you remove the lamp cover. Be careful to
prevent pieces of glass from getting into your eyes or mouth.
■
If the lamp breaks and gases or fragments of broken glass from the lamp
are inhaled or get into the eyes or mouth, or if any other ill effects are
noticed, immediately seek medical advice.
■
Do not disassemble or damage the lamp or subject it to any impacts.
■
Do not use the projector where there may be low or high temperature
extremes or sudden changes in temperature.
■
Do not set up the projector where it may be subjected to vibrations or
shocks, or near high-voltage electrical wires or sources of magnetic fields.
