If you do not want to use the distance table, you can use the following equations to help determine where to install the projector relative to the screen.

Calculating projection distances distance from lens to screen = A × width of screen minimum and maximum distance from screen = B width of screen = 0.8 × diagonal of screen (for 3:4 screen) projector lens below bottom of screen = C × width of screen (for 4:3 screen)

vp6310 series

A = 1.7 to 2.0

B = 1 to 10 m (3 to 33 ft)

C = 0.11 to 0.41

This screen shows information and status for the projector.

Cleaning the projector lens

You can clean the front lens of the projector using the following recommendations. You cannot clean any of the internal surfaces.

To minimize the risk of damaging or scratching the lens surface, blow dust particles off the lens with clean, dry, deionized air.

If this method does not work, use the following method:

a. Wipe the lens in a single direction with a clean, dry cloth. Do not wipe back and forth across the lens.

b. If the cloth is dirty or smears the lens, wash the cloth. If the cloth is still dirty after washing it or the fabric is damaged, replace it.

CAUTION:

Cleaning requires special consideration:

Do not spray any type of fluid or cleaner directly on the lens surface. Cleaners might damage the lens.

Do not use fabric softener when washing a cleaning cloth or softener sheets when drying the cloth. Chemicals on the cloth might damage the surface of the lens.

Do not store a cleaning cloth in contact with the lens for a long time because doing so contaminates the lens with dye from the cloth. The cloth can be contaminated if left in the open air.

Performing routine maintenance 43

Replacing the lamp module

As the projector operates over time, the brightness of the projector lamp gradually decreases and the lamp becomes more susceptible to breakage. You can install a new lamp at any time to bring the projector up to factory-fresh brightness. We recommend replacing the lamp if a warning message is displayed.

WARNING!

Replacing the lamp module requires special consideration:

To reduce the risk of injury, be careful when removing the lamp module as broken glass might be present. For a ceiling installation, wear goggles and gloves when removing the lamp module. If the lamp is broken, contact HP about repairs that might be required due to glass fragments.

The lamp contains a small amount of mercury. If the lamp breaks, adequately ventilate the area where the breakage occurred. Disposal of this lamp might be regulated due to environmental considerations. For disposal or recycling information, contact your local authorities or the Electronic Industries Alliance at http://www.eiae.org.

Because the lamp assembly operates at a very high temperature, wait 30 minutes before removing the lamp module.

48 Maintaining the Projector

5 Installing Permanently

Installing the projector

Choosing cables

If you are permanently installing the projector or using it with long cables, consider the following suggestions when planning the installation:

Use high-quality cables. Use only video cables that are made with 75-ohm coaxial cable and connectors. For high-resolution video, use low-loss video cables. For standard audio, use audio cables that are shielded. For digital audio, use 75-ohm coaxial cables.

Minimize cable length as much as possible. For video cables longer than 6 m (20 ft), use low-loss coaxial cables. For standard audio cables longer than 6 m (20 ft), use 12-gauge wire.

Do not run audio or video cables next to power or network cables. If they must cross, cross them at 90 degrees.

If you are installing cables in walls, use cables with necessary approvals, such as

Underwriters Laboratories (UL) approval.

If you are running cables above a dropped ceiling, you must use plenum-rated cables if the space above the ceiling is open to the space above other rooms. You must use plenumrated cables if you are running cables in a duct.

Before installing cables permanently, check the setup with the final cables in the open.

Installing on a table

This installation is covered in detail in Chapter 1. See “Setting up the projector” on page 16

for more information.

Installing on the ceiling

WARNING!

To minimize the risk of injury from improperly installed equipment, it is recommended that a professional installer performs the ceiling installation.

Installing the projector 49

1.

Attach the projector to the ceiling using an HP ceiling mount kit. Refer to the installation instructions provided with the ceiling mount kit.

2.

After the projector is mounted on the ceiling, adjust the projector settings to match this setup. Press enter, go to Setup > Advanced setup > Projector position, and select Front

Ceiling.

Installing for rear projection

1.

Place the projector 1 to 10 m (3 to 33 ft) behind a translucent screen that is designed for rear projection.

See “Setting up the projector” on page 16 or “Installing on the ceiling” on page 49 for

more instructions.

2.

Press enter, go to Setup > Advanced setup > Projector position. Then select Rear Table or

Rear Ceiling.

Locking the projector

The projector includes a built in slot to secure the projector with a cable and lock (such as the

Kensington MicroSaver lock system, availab le at many computer stores).

1.

Wrap the cable around a secure object, such as a table leg. Loop the cable to create a slip knot around the stationary object, and be sure it cannot slip off.

2.

Insert the lock

1

into the hole and twist the key

2

.

50 Installing Permanently

TIP:

As an alternative, you can loop a cable or bracket around the projector handle to secure the projector in place.

Controlling an external accessory

If your projector has a 12-volt trigger output port, the projector can automatically control one or more accessories. Certain types of accessories can use a 12-volt signal to trigger their actions, such as a motorized screen lowering and raising the screen. The output provides a 12-volt dc signal whenever the projector is on (200 mA maximum current output).

Requires:

Two-wire cable with 3.5-mm × 1.3-mm barrel connector (12 V on inner contact)

Installing the projector 51

Connecting to a room controller

If your projector has a serial port, you can connect the projector to a room controller using a serial (RS-232) cable. After you program the room controller using the following commands, you can use the room controller to operate the projector and other components of your installation.

Serial connections

The serial port on the projector uses a standard serial (RS-232) cable:

Pin 2: data sent to the projector (RxD)

Pin 3: data sent from the projector (TxD)

Pin 5: ground

The room controller must use the following serial (RS-232) settings:

9600 baud

1 start bit + 8 data bits (D0=LSB, D7=MSB) + 1 stop bit

No parity

Full duplex communication channels (no flow control)

No handshaking

Examples of room controller commands

In the following examples, “<CR>” and “<LF>” represent a carriage return and line feed, respectively.

Commands are sent to the projector as "requests" which consist of an asterisk (*) prefix, the command name, any needed parameter, and a carriage return <CR> as a terminator:

* command = parameter <CR>

Requests can contain only ASCII alphanumeric characters. Blanks (spaces) are allowed, except within keywords and numbers. Line feeds <LF> are ignored.

52 Installing Permanently

The following table shows the specific syntax to use for various requested tasks.

To perform this task...

Change a setting to a specified value

Ask the current setting

Increment a setting

Decrement a setting

Invoke an action (no parameter needed)

Use this request syntax...

*command=value<CR>

*command=?<CR>

*command=+<CR>

*command=–<CR>

*command<CR>

In general, every request sent to the projector generates one or more notification messages, which are sent to the room controller. Actions initiated by the projector can also generate notifications.

The projector always sends notifications whenever a setting changes, whether as the result of a request from a controller, or as the result of an action, such as a button press or menu change.

Some requested setting changes take time to perform, or are carried out in stages. Because of this, requests might produce delayed notifications.

The following table lists the types of notifications generated in various situations.

This type of request...

Modify a setting

Query a setting

Execute an action

Generates this type of notification...

Echoes the request command and shows the resulting value:

Request: *BRT=65<CR>

Notification: *BRT=65<CR><LF>

Echoes the request command and shows the resulting value:

Request: *CON=?<CR>

Notification: *CON=40<CR><LF>

Echoes the request command:

Request: *NXT<CR>

Notification: *NXT<CR><LF>

Incorrect commands cause the following types of notifications:

No asterisk at start of command—no response

Unrecognized command name—command with “?” added

Connecting to a room controller 53

Command that is currently unavailable—command with “?” added

Invalid parameter—command with current value

Action command with unnecessary parameter—action command

Action command that is unavailable—action command

The following simplified example shows how the projector typically responds to a request to change the active input source. Note that the three latter notifications are delayed.

Request:

Notification:

*RSRC=4<CR>

*RSRC=4<CR><LF> (acknowledges request)

*SRC=0<CR><LF> (projector is attempting to acquire source 4, and in the interim has no valid source)

*SRC=4<CR><LF> (source 4 is now active)

*BRT=60<CR><LF> (brightness has been modified for source 4)

*CSPC=?<CR><LF> (color space is not supported for this input)

Room controller commands

In the following tables, if the parameter listing for a particular command is “None,” that command requires no parameter. Some commands are valid only when the projector is turned on, STAT=1. Some commands are available only when specific input sources are active.

6 Fixing Problems

Troubleshooting suggestions

If you have a problem with your projector, check the following statement that most closely matches the nature of the problem, then look in that section of this chapter:

“Warning light problems” on page 59

“Start-up problems” on page 60

“Picture problems” on page 60

“Sound problems” on page 63

“Interruption problems” on page 63

“Remote control problems” on page 63

TIP:

If these suggestions do not solve your problem, go to http://www.hp.com/support for additional information. To contact HP, refer to the support guide included with the projector.

Warning light problems

If both red warning lights are blinking:

• Allow the projector to cool down after it turns off. If this condition occurs after you restart the projector, an internal component has failed. Contact HP for assistance.

If the red temperature light is on or blinking:

• Allow the projector to cool down after it turns off. Be sure that nothing is near or blocking the vents on the projector, and that the vents are free of lint and other objects.

Remove any sources of excess heat in the room. Observe temperature and altitude limits

(see “Specifications” on page 65). If the warning light turns on or blinks after you

restart the projector, contact HP for assistance.

If the red lamp light is on or blinking:

• Allow the projector to cool down after it turns off. If the warning light turns on or blinks after you restart the projector, install a new lamp. If this occurs after you install a new lamp module, remove and reinstall the lamp module. If a new lamp does not fix the problem, contact HP for assistance.

Troubleshooting suggestions 59

If the red lamp light is flickering quickly:

• Check that the cover over the lamp at the side of the projector is correctly installed and fully attached. Check the tab at the top of the cover and latch at the bottom.

Start-up problems

If no lights or sounds turn on:

• Be sure that the power cable is securely connected to the projector and the other end is plugged into an outlet with power.

• Be sure the main disconnect switch is turned on.

• Press the power button again.

• Unplug the power cord for 15 seconds, then plug it in and press the power button again.

Picture problems

If a “scanning” or “waiting” message is displayed on a blank screen:

• Press the source button on the projector or remote control one or more times until the correct source name is selected.

• Be sure the external source is turned on and connected.

• For a computer connection, ensure your notebook computer’s external video port is turned on. Refer to the computer manual. On some notebooks, for example, press the

F

N

+F4 or F

N

+F5 function keys to turn on the external video port.

If the wrong input source is displayed:

• Press the source button on the projector or the remote control one or more times to select another active input source.

If the image is out of focus:

• Be sure the lens cover is open.

• While displaying the on-screen menu, adjust the focus ring. (The image size should not change; if it does, you are adjusting the zoom, not the focus.)

• Ensure the projection screen is 1 to 10 m (3 to 33 ft) from the projector.

• Check the projection lens to see if it needs cleaning.

60 Fixing Problems

• For a computer connection, set the display resolution as the computer to the same

resolution as the projector, 800 × 600 or 1024 × 768 (see “Specifications” on page 65). If the computer has multiple monitors, adjust the resolution of the monitor

assigned to the projector.

• For a computer connected to the S-video port, the picture cannot be as high resolution as what you see on the computer display.

If an upside-down or reversed image is displayed:

• The projector has been set to the wrong position setting. Press enter, go to Setup >

Advanced Setup > Projector position, and select the correct setting.

If the image is too small or too large:

• Adjust the zoom ring on top of the projector.

• Move the projector closer to or farther from the screen.

• On the projector or remote control, press the picture mode button one or more times to see if one of the picture modes makes the image the correct size.

• Press enter, go to Picture > Customize picture mode > Stretch. Try the different settings.

• If the source device sends wide-screen output, press enter, go to Input, and try setting

Widescreen input to Yes. Otherwise, set it to No.

If the image has slanted sides:

• As much as possible, reposition the projector so that it is centered on the screen and below the bottom or above the top of the screen.

• On the projector, press the keystone button until the sides are vertical.

If the image is stretched:

• On the projector or remote control, press the picture mode button one or more times to see if one of the picture modes makes the image the correct size.

• Press enter, go to Picture > Customize picture mode > Stretch. Try the different settings.

• If the source device sends wide-screen output, press enter, go to Input, and try setting

Widescreen input to Yes. Otherwise, set it to No.

If the projected colors seem slightly wrong:

• See “Adjusting the picture for best color” on page 36.

• Press enter, go to Help > Diagnostics, and run the color test.

If the projected colors seem completely wrong:

• Be sure the pins on the cable connectors are not bent or broken.

• Press enter, go to Picture > Color settings > Color space. Try the different settings.

Troubleshooting suggestions 61

• Press enter, go to Help > Diagnostics, and run the color test.

• Press enter, go to Picture > Color settings > Reset color settings, and press enter.

• Press enter, go to Setup > Reset all settings, and press enter.

If the picture is not clear (ghost images, smearing, poor quality):

• Be sure the video cable you are using is coaxial cable rated at 75 ohms. Any other cable or impedance rating can reduce picture quality.

• The video cable connecting the video source to the projector probably must be higher

quality. See “Choosing cables” on page 49.

If several picture settings seem completely wrong and you cannot fix them:

• Press enter, go to Picture > Color settings > Reset color settings, and press enter.

• Press enter, go to Setup > Reset all settings, and press enter.

If a scrolling or cut-off image is displayed for a computer connection:

• Press the auto sync button on the projector or remote control.

• Turn everything off. Then power on the projector first and power on the notebook or desktop computer second.

• If the previous steps do not correct the display image, adjust the resolution of the notebook or desktop computer to the same resolution as the projector, 800 × 600 or

1024 × 768 (see “Specifications” on page 65). If the computer has multiple monitors,

adjust the resolution of the monitor assigned to the projector.

If the image is flickering or unstable for a computer connection:

• Press the auto sync butto on the projector or remote control.

• Press enter, go to Picture > VGA settings, and adjust Frequency or Tracking.

If the image disappears from the computer screen:

• For a notebook computer, you might be able to turn on both the external VGA port and the built-in screen. Refer to the computer manual.

• Connect a monitor to the VGA-out port.

If text or lines from a computer display seem rough or uneven:

• Check the focus adjustment.

• Press enter, go to Setup > Reset keystone, and press enter.

62 Fixing Problems

Sound problems

If no sound is coming out of the projector:

• Be sure you have an audio cable securely connected between the projector and the source device.

• Press enter, go to Sound, and check that Mute is turned off and Volume is correct.

• Press enter, go to Sound > Internal speakers, and be sure the speakers are turned on.

• Press enter, go to Help > Diagnostics, and run the sound test.

• Be sure that the mute and volume settings are correct on the source device, such as a

VCR, camcorder, or computer.

Interruption problems

If the projector stops responding to all controls:

• If possible, turn off the projector, then unplug the power cord and wait at least 15 seconds before reconnecting power.

If the lamp shuts off during a show:

• A minor power surge might cause the lamp to shut off. This is normal. Wait a few minutes, then power on the projector.

• If a red warning light is on or blinking, see “Warning light problems” on page 59.

If the lamp burns out or makes a popping sound:

• If the lamp burns out and makes a popping sound, the projector will not turn back on until the lamp module has been replaced.

• If the lamp breaks, contact HP about repairs that might be required due to glass fragments.

Remote control problems

If the remote control does not operate:

• Be sure nothing is blocking the remote control receiver on the front or back of the projector. Move to within 9 m (30 ft) of the projector.

• Aim the remote control at the screen or at the front or back of the projector.

• Move the remote control so it is more directly in front of or behind the projector and not as far to the side.

• Press enter, go to Help > Diagnostics, and run the remote control test.

• Replace the battery in the remote control.
