a notebook or desktop computer, to video equipment (such as a VCR,
DVD player, or video camera), and to a local area network.
Follow the instructions in this chapter for:
■
Unpacking the projector
■
Positioning the projector
■
Connecting to a computer
■
Connecting to video equipment
■
Playing Sound
■
Connecting a network cable
■

PDF manuals and
registration CD-ROM
Projector software
CD-ROM
Projector and lens cap
Lens theft
deterrent screw
Power cord
Remote control and
2 AA batteries

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 79 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 composite video signal from a VCR or other video
device, you’ll need a video cable. One may be provided with your
video equipment.
■
To receive an S-video signal, you’ll need an S-video cable. One
may be included with your video equipment, or you can purchase
one from Epson. See “Optional Accessories” on page 10.
Positioning the Projector
note
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.
You can mount the projector
on the ceiling, or place it
behind a translucent screen
for rear projection. See
page 95 for details.
Use the illustration below to help you determine placement. Image
size increases with distance, but can vary depending on how you
position the zoom ring and whether you’ve adjusted the image with
other settings.

2.5 to 4.6 ft
(0.8 to 1.4 m)
Distance from screen
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 13
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 10.
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 32). 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 33).
For instructions on installing the projector in a permanent location,
such as a theater or conference room, see page 95.
14
Setting Up the Projector
Connecting to a Computer
You can connect the projector to any computer that has a standard
video output (monitor) port, including desktop models, PC notebook
computers, MacBook®, PowerBook®, and iBook® 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 42).
Follow these steps to 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. Connect one end of the cable to the projector’s Computer1 or
Computer 2 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 51).
3. To play sound, you can connect an optional stereo mini-jack
audio cable and optional external speakers (see page 21).
4. When you’ve finished making any connections, see page 24 for
instructions on turning on the projector and Chapter 2 for
instructions on displaying and adjusting the image.
Setting Up the Projector 15
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 19.
■
If your video player has a yellow RCA video output connector, or
if you’re using a composite cable with a BNC connector, see
“Connecting a Composite Video Source” on page 17.

projector from being turned on, prevent your custom startup
screen from being changed, and lock network settings.
■
Create a custom screen that is displayed at startup and/or when
the A/V Mute button is pressed. The screen can be locked with a
password to discourage theft and provides a way to identify the
projector should it be stolen. See page 56.
■
Disable the projector’s buttons; this is useful, for example, if
you’re projecting in a classroom and you want to ensure that no
one touches the projector’s buttons while you’re using the remote

ventilation and prevent the projector from overheating. Do not operate
the projector on a sofa, rug, or other soft surface, or set it on top of loose
papers, which could block vents underneath your projector. 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 of
32 to 104 °F (0 to 40 °C). Doing so may cause an unstable display and
could lead to projector damage.
■
Do not store the projector outside the required temperature range of
14 to 140 °F (–10 to 60 °C) 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.
■
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. 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 a country other than where you purchased it,
use the correct power cord for that country.
■
Do not overload wall outlets, extension cords, or power strips. Do not
insert the plug into a dusty outlet. This can cause fire or electric shock.
■
Take the following precautions when handling the plug: Do not hold
the plug with wet hands. Do not insert the plug into an outlet with dust
present. 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 the projector where the cord can be walked on.
■
The lamp(s) in this product contain mercury. Please consult your
state and local regulations regarding disposal or recycling. Do not put in
the trash.
■
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.
■
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.
■
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, be careful to
prevent pieces of glass from falling into your eyes when you open the
lamp cover.
