Shutting down the projector
The Lamp LED on top of the projector (page 16) will alert you to certain
The projector automatically blanks the screen after no active source is
detected for 30 minutes. This blank screen helps preserve the life of the projector. The image returns when an active source is detected or a remote or
keypad button is pressed.
A solid red Lamp LED means it is time to change the lamp. See page 27.
A blinking red Lamp LED means different things based on the number of
“blinks”. After blinking 1-5 times, the light turns off for 2 seconds, then the
blinking repeats.
Screen Save
You can make the blank screen appear after five minutes by turning on
Screen Save in the Settings>System menu. See page 24. There are six time
options for the Screen Save feature. They range from five minutes to 30 minutes with five minute intervals.
• 1 blink, lamp won’t turn on: Turn the projector off for at least one
minute, then turn it on again. If the blinking continues, the lamp may
need to be replaced.
Power Save
• 2 blinks: Remaining lamp life is low. Replace the lamp, see page 27.
The projector also has a Power Save feature that automatically turns the
lamp off after no signal is detected for 20 minutes. After 10 additional minutes with no signal, the projector powers down. If an active signal is
received before the projector powers down, the image is displayed. You
must press the Power button to display an image after 30 minutes have
passed. When Power Save is enabled, Screen Save is disabled. See page 24.
• 3 or 4 blinks: Unexpected shut down (3 blinks) or fan failure (4
blinks). Turn the projector off for at least one minute, then turn it on
again. If the blinking continues, the projector may require service; go
• 5 blinks: The projector is overheating. Turn the projector off and
remove anything that may be blocking its air vents. Leave the projector off for at least one minute to let it cool before turning it on again.
Important: Continuous operation at high temperature may reduce the
lifetime of the lamp and/or projector.
Turning off the projector
To turn off the projector, press the Power button and verify that you want to
turn the projector off by pressing the Power button again within 3 seconds.
You can cancel the shutdown by not pressing the Power button a second
time. The lamp turns off and the LED blinks amber for 1 minute while the
fans continue to run to cool the lamp. When the lamp has cooled, the LED
lights amber and the fans stop. Unplug the power cable to completely
power off the projector.
The other LED on top of the projector indicates the normal operating state
of the projector.
• A solid green LED means the projector is on.
• A blinking green LED means the lamp is turning on. A green “blip”
means the projector is in Screen Save or Power Save mode.
• A blinking amber LED means the lamp is either warming up or cooling down to enter standby mode; a solid amber LED means the projector is in standby mode.

Using the remote control
The remote uses two (2) AA batteries. They are easily installed by sliding
the cover off the remote’s back, aligning the + and - ends of the batteries,
sliding them into place, and then replacing the cover.
Caution: When replacing the batteries, be aware that using batteries other
than the type provided with the projector may risk severe damage to the
remote. When disposing of the batteries, be sure to do so in an environmentally proper manner.
To operate, point the remote at the front of the projector (not at the computer). The range of optimum operation is about 15 feet (4.5m).
Press the remote’s Power button to turn the projector on and off (see page 9
for shutdown info).
Press the remote’s Menu button to open the projector’s menu system. Use
the arrow buttons to navigate, and the Select button to select features and
adjust values in the menus. See page 19 for more info on the menus.
The remote also has a Source button to switch between sources.
If you connect the USB portion of the M1-DA computer cable (page 5) you
can use the up and down arrow navigation buttons to advance slides in a
PowerPoint presentation.
Troubleshooting the remote
Make sure the batteries are installed in the proper orientation and are
not dead.
Make sure you’re pointing the remote at the projector or the screen, not
the computer, and are within the remote range of 15 feet (4.5m). For
best results, point the remote at the projector.

Using the security lock
Cleaning the lens
The projector has a security lock for use with a cable lock system. Refer to
the information that came with the lock for instructions on how to use it.
1 Apply a non-abrasive camera lens cleaner to a soft, dry cloth.
Avoid using an excessive amount of cleaner, and don’t apply the
cleaner directly to the lens. Abrasive cleaners, solvents or other harsh
chemicals might scratch the lens.
2 Lightly wipe the cleaning cloth over the lens in a circular motion. If you
don’t intend to use the projector immediately, replace the lens cap.
Cleaning the lamp filter screens
In dirty or dusty environments, the dust filter screens on and
around the lamp module can become clogged, causing high temperatures inside the lamp module. These high temperatures can impact
lamp performance and operating life. Routine maintenance to remove
dust and dirt from the screens lowers the lamp operating temperature and prolongs lamp life. To maximize lamp life you will need to
clean the screens every 250 hours. Lamp screen maintenance may need to
occur more often than 250 hours depending on your installation/use environment.
1 Remove the lamp module. Refer to “Replacing the projection lamp”
on page 27 for instructions.
2 Examine the dust filter screens on the lamp module and in the
lamp housing area. If necessary, use a vacuum cleaner set on low
power to clean the screens. Be careful not to disturb any internal
components when cleaning the screens.
3 Replace the lamp module.

after lamp replacement.
