Setting Up the Projector
Follow the instructions in this section to choose a location for the projector, connect the
cables, and display an image.
Choosing a Location
You can install the projector for the viewing setups shown below, as well as rear projection.
Center
Side
Ceiling
12
Setting Up the Projector
Ideally, keep the projector level and place it at a height so its lens is centered between the top
and bottom of the screen, as shown below. If this is not possible, use the lens shift dials to
reposition the image. As a rule of thumb, you can use lens shift to move the image up or down
by nearly its full height, and left or right by about one-half its width (for details, see page 25).
Offset A
Offset B
Projection distance
Offset refers to distance from
bottom of image to center of
lens using maximum lens shift.
If you place the projector off to the side, aim it straight ahead (rather than at the center of the
screen), then use the horizontal lens shift dial to center the image on the screen.
Horizontal lens shift dial
Vertical lens shift dial
Caution: Do not try to move the lens by hand, or you may damage the projector. Always use the
lens shift dials to change the lens position.

The size of the image is determined by the distance from the projector’s lens to the screen.
Depending on your display settings and how you use the Zoom ring, the actual size may
differ. Use these tables as a guide for projector placement:

To determine the exact image size when you know the projection distance (or the exact
projection distance when you know the desired image size), you can use the Image Size
Calculator. This program is available on the Epson website at epson.com/support (U.S.) or
epson.ca/support (Canada).
Also keep these considerations in mind:
■
Make sure there is plenty of space for ventilation around and under the projector. Do not
set the projector on top of loose materials that could block the vents underneath.
■
Make sure the projector is within 9.8 feet (3 m) of a grounded electrical outlet or
extension cord.
Setting Up the Projector
15
Installing the Projector
To install the projector, you first need to determine the location, based on the size of your
screen (maximum diagonal image size). Use the tables on page 14 as a guide to positioning the
projector.
To suspend the projector from a ceiling, you will need the optional projector mount designed
for the projector. See page 10 for ordering information. Follow the instructions included with
the mount to install the projector.
WARNING: When installing or adjusting the ceiling mount, do not use adhesives to prevent the
screws from loosening and do not use any type of oil or lubricant. These may cause the projector
casing to crack and the projector may fall, causing serious injury and serious damage to the
projector.
If you install the projector on the ceiling, you will need to invert the picture so that it appears
right side up. Follow these steps:
1. Press the Menu button on the remote control.
2. Open the Settings menu, then select Projection.
3. Select Front/Ceiling.
4. Press the Menu button when done.
Note that you can rotate the Epson logo plate
180 degrees when suspending the projector from a
ceiling.
If you are planning to use an AV controller with the
projector, refer to the table of ESC/VP21 command
codes on page 67. In addition, the projector’s Trigger
out port can be used to lower a projection screen (see
page 46).

Setting Up the Projector
19
Making Other Connections
Connect the power cable and other cables described below, depending on how you plan to
use the projector.
■
Plug the power cable into the projector and a grounded electrical outlet.
■
The Trigger out port outputs a 12-volt DC signal
when the projector is turned on. This lets a central
control system monitor whether the projector is on
or off, and can be used to raise or lower your
projection screen automatically when the projector
is in use.
Connect a 3.5-mm mini jack to the port, as shown.
Use the Trigger Out setting to enable the port (see
page 46).
■
20
To use an AV controller with the projector, connect a 9-pin null modem serial cable to
the RS-232C port. Refer to the table of ESC/VP21 command codes on page 67.

Choosing the Color Mode
You can change the Color Mode to automatically adjust brightness, contrast, and color,
letting you quickly optimize the projected image for various lighting environments. You can
also select a different color mode for each input source—which is useful if you view different
types of images from different sources. (For example, you might set the HDMI 1 source to
Living Room if it’s usually used for watching movies in the daytime with the blinds closed,
and the PC source to Dynamic for playing video games with the blinds open.)
Select the image source you want to adjust, then press the Color Mode button on the remote
control. Choose from these settings:
■
■
Dynamic for projecting the brightest picture available.
Living Room for watching television programs during

dimly lit room.
■
Cinema for viewing movies in a dimly lit room.
■
x.v.Color for the most natural color reproduction
when viewing movies through HDMI.
The built-in Epson Cinema Filter automatically improves color reproduction in a darkened
room; it is not used when you select Dynamic or Living Room.

Adjusting the Picture Quality
Before fine-tuning the image using these adjustments, make sure you have already selected the
best Color Mode for your picture and viewing environment, as described on page 28. Then
use the settings in this section to finish adjusting the picture to your liking.
Most image quality settings are saved independently for each input source (Video, S-Video,
HDMI, Component, PC) and color mode. After you finish adjusting the settings for one
input source, switch to the other input sources you’ll be using and make any necessary
adjustments.
Input Brightness Settings
If the signal from connected equipment is weak and images appear dark, you can adjust the
Brightness and Contrast settings. You can adjust brightness and contrast for each image
source and color mode.
The Brightness setting controls how much light is produced by the projector, and the
Contrast setting adjusts the difference between the bright and dark areas of the projected
image. The other settings in this section control how the projector interprets the light and
dark areas of the picture.

What Epson Will Do To Correct Problems: If your product requires service during the limited warranty
period, please call Epson at the number on the bottom of this statement and be prepared to provide the
model, serial number, and date of original purchase. Epson will, at its option, repair or replace the
defective unit, without charge for parts or labor. When warranty service involves the exchange of the
product or of a part, the item replaced becomes Epson property. The exchanged product or part may
be new or refurbished to the Epson standard of quality, and at Epson’s option, the replacement may be
another model of like kind and quality. Epson’s liability for replacement of the covered product will

parts assume the remaining warranty period of the product covered by this limited warranty. If Epson
replaces the lamp as part of the warranty service, the replacement lamp carries the limited 90-day
warranty stated above.
What This Warranty Does Not Cover: This warranty covers only normal use in the United States,
Canada or Puerto Rico. Twenty-four hours per day or other excessive continual use is not considered
normal use. This warranty does not cover consumables such as filters. This warranty is not transferable.
Epson is not responsible for warranty service should the Epson label or logo or the rating label or serial
number be removed. Epson is not responsible for warranty service should the product fail to be
properly maintained or fail to function properly as a result of misuse, abuse, improper installation,
neglect, improper shipping, damage caused by disasters such as fire, flood, and lightning, improper
electrical current, software problems, interaction with non-Epson products, or service other than by
Epson or an Epson Authorized Servicer. Postage, insurance, or shipping costs incurred in presenting
your Epson product for carry-in warranty service are your responsibility. Epson will pay for all freight
charges if you choose to send your unit to Epson for repair. If a claimed defect cannot be identified or
reproduced in service, you will be held responsible for costs incurred.
THE WARRANTY AND REMEDY PROVIDED ABOVE ARE EXCLUSIVE AND IN LIEU OF
ALL OTHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO,
THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR
PURPOSE. SOME LAWS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES.
IF THESE LAWS APPLY, THEN ALL EXPRESS AND IMPLIED WARRANTIES ARE LIMITED
TO THE WARRANTY PERIOD IDENTIFIED ABOVE. UNLESS STATED HEREIN, ANY
STATEMENTS OR REPRESENTATIONS MADE BY ANY OTHER PERSON OR FIRM ARE
VOID. IN THE EVENT THE REMEDIES ABOVE FAIL, EPSON'S ENTIRE LIABILITY SHALL
BE LIMITED TO A REFUND OF THE PRICE PAID FOR THE EPSON PRODUCT
COVERED BY THIS LIMITED WARRANTY. EXCEPT AS PROVIDED IN THIS WRITTEN
WARRANTY, NEITHER EPSON AMERICA, INC. NOR ITS AFFILIATES SHALL BE LIABLE
FOR ANY LOSS, INCONVENIENCE, OR DAMAGE, INCLUDING DIRECT, SPECIAL,
INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, RESULTING FROM THE USE OR
INABILITY TO USE THE EPSON PRODUCT, WHETHER RESULTING FROM BREACH OF
WARRANTY OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY.
In Canada, warranties include both warranties and conditions.
Some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts and some
jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the
above limitations and exclusions may not apply to you. This warranty gives you specific legal rights,
and you may also have other rights, which vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.
