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

Welcome
The EPSON
® PowerLite®
7800p is a versatile, lightweight projector
designed to ensure that your presentations are easy and trouble-free,
whether you use it in the classroom or conference room. When space
is limited, you can project against a surface less than five and one-half
feet away. The projector’s keystone correction function automatically
corrects image distortion, and EPSON’s unique Wall Shot™ function
lets you project against blackboards and colored walls without loss of
image color, regardless of ambient lighting. In addition, the PowerLite
7800p offers outstanding image quality, with up to 3500 lumens of
brightness, a resolution of 1024 × 768 pixels, and a 700:1 contrast
ratio.
Connectivity
Your EPSON PowerLite projector can be connected to three
computers at the same time, or four video sources (up to a total of five
sources at the same time). You can include an independent sound
channel for each source. A preview feature lets you see all the sources
at a glance, so you can easily switch between them.
Complete control
Use the remote control to take charge of your presentation. Freeze the
action, zoom in on part of the picture, or display a picture-in-picture
video. Use the remote as a pointer, or to draw on the screen. You can
even use it in place of your computer’s mouse to control your
computer and change slides in PowerPoint.®
Easy Management
With the projector’s Easy Management™ system, you can use a
Windows® PC to remotely monitor and control the projector.
Security
To discourage theft, you can assign the projector a password, thus
preventing unauthorized persons from using it.

Setting Up the Projector
T
his chapter gives you basic information on setting up the projector:
where to position it and how to connect it to a video source (such as a
VCR or DVD player) or to a laptop or desktop computer.
Follow the instructions in this chapter on:
■
Positioning the projector
■
Connecting to video equipment
■
Connecting to a computer
■
Connecting an external monitor
■
Playing sound through the projector
Setting Up the Projector 7
note
Positioning the Projector
You can mount the projector
on the ceiling, or place it
behind a translucent screen
for rear projection. See
page 115 for details.
If you’re setting up the projector yourself and it isn’t already installed
in the theater or conference room you’re using, you’ll probably want
to place it on a table in front of the screen, as shown. x art below
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.
Use the figure 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.
TBD
27 to 36.5 ft
7 to 9.5 ft
2.5 to 3.5 ft
distance from screen
Also keep these considerations in mind:
8
Setting Up the Projector
■
Place the projector on a sturdy, level surface.
■
Make sure there is plenty of space for ventilation around and
under the projector. Do not set the projector on top of loose
papers that could block the vents under the projector.
■
Make sure the projector is within 10 feet of a grounded electrical
outlet or extension cord.
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 at about the level of the bottom of the screen.
Screen
Projector
note
After positioning the
projector, you may want to
connect a Kensington
MicroSaver® anti-theft
device to the lock port on the
projector’s left side. You can
purchase this from EPSON;
see “Optional Accessories” on
page 6.
If you place the projector below screen level, you’ll have to tilt it up by
extending its feet. This causes the image to become “keystone” shaped,
but you can correct the distortion by pressing the Sync buttons on the
projector. See page 36 for detailed information about correcting the
image shape.
For instructions on installing the projector in a permanent location,
such as a theater or conference room, see page 115.
Setting Up the Projector 9
Connecting to Video Equipment
You can connect up to four 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 yellow RCA-style video output
connector, see “Connecting a Composite Video Source” on
page 11.
■
If your video player has an S-Video connector, see “Connecting
an S-Video Source” on page 12.
■
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 13.
■
If your video player has an RGB video port (either a single
connector for a VGA-style monitor cable, or three connectors
labeled R/G/B), see “Connecting an RGB Video Source” on
page 14.
After connecting any video cables, you may also want to:
10
Setting Up the Projector
■
connect a monitor to the projector so you can view your
presentation close-up as well as on-screen; see page 23
■
connect an audio cable to play sound through the projector; see
page 24
Connecting a Composite Video Source
1. Locate the RCA-style video cable provided with the projector.
2. Connect the cable to the yellow video output connector on your
player and the yellow Video connector on the projector:
3. If you want to play sound through the projector, see page 24 for
instructions on connecting an audio cable.
4. If you don’t need to make any other connections, see Chapter 2
or the Quick Setup sheet for instructions on turning on the
projector and adjusting the image. Once the projector is turned
on, select the image source: press the Video button on the remote
control, or press the Video/BNC button on the projector’s control
panel repeatedly until Video is displayed on the projected image.
Setting Up the Projector 11
Connecting an S-Video Source
1. Locate an S-Video cable (one is usually provided with your video
equipment, or you can purchase one from EPSON; see page 6).
2. Connect the cable between the S-Video connector on your player
and the S-Video connector on the projector:
3. If you want to play sound through the projector, see page 24 for
instructions on connecting an audio cable.
4. If you don’t need to make any other connections, see Chapter 2
or the Quick Setup sheet for instructions on turning on the
projector and adjusting the image. Once the projector is turned
on, select the image source: press the S-Video button on the
remote control, or press the Video/BNC button on the projector’s
control panel repeatedly until S-Video is displayed on the
projected image.
12
Setting Up the Projector
Connecting a Component Video Source
1. Locate a component video cable (one may be included with your
video equipment).
BNC adapters
Look at the connectors at one end of the cable. If they are
bayonet-style (BNC) connectors, continue on to the next step. If
they are RCA-style connectors, you’ll need to attach commercially
available BNC adapters to plug the cable into your projector.
2. Connect the cable (with the adapters) to your player and the BNC
connectors on the projector. Match the Y/Cb/Cr (or Y/Pb/Pr)
connectors on your player to the corresponding connectors on the
projector.
note
Be sure your video player is
not an RGB video source. If
you set the wrong source,
image quality may suffer.
Check your video player’s
documentation.
3. If you want to play sound through the projector, see page 24 for
instructions on connecting an audio cable.
4. If you don’t need to make any other connections, see Chapter 2
for instructions on turning on the projector and adjusting the
image. Once the projector is turned on, do the following:
■
Enter the projector’s Setting menu, then change the BNC
Input setting to YCbCr or YPbPr, as needed (see page 72).
■
After exiting the menu system, press the remote control’s
BNC button or repeatedly press the projector’s Video/BNC

automatically turns off the
projector lamp and enters
“sleep mode.” This conserves
electricity, cools the
projector, and extends the
life of the lamp. If you want
to start projecting again,
press the Power button. If
you are done using the
projector, unplug the power
cord. To turn off sleep mode,
see page 74.

3. Press the Power button again. The power light flashes orange for
about 30 seconds as the projector cools down. After the projector
has cooled, the orange light stays on and the exhaust fan shuts off.
If you want to turn the projector on again, wait until the orange
light stops flashing. Then press the Power button.
4. If you extended the adjustable front foot, press up on the blue
foot release lever to retract it.

T
he projector includes a number of tools to enhance your
presentation. All of them can be accessed using the remote control,
which lets you operate the projector from anywhere in the room—up
to 33 feet away.
note
For information and
resources to help you give
the most professional
presentation, be sure to visit
presentersonline.com.
You can use the remote control to adjust the picture and sound
(page 49), or as a pointer or drawing tool to highlight your
presentation (page 54). You can also use it as a wireless mouse when
projecting from a computer (page 56); this lets you easily change
slides, for example, when giving presentations in PowerPoint.
To further enhance your presentation, you can create a customized
screen to display a picture or company logo (page 57), and then use it
as the startup screen or the screen you see when you press the
A/V Mute button.
This chapter covers:
■
Activating and using the remote control
■
Controlling the picture and sound
■
Highlighting your presentation
■
Operating your computer with the remote control
■
Creating your own startup screen []
■
Controlling multiple projectors
Giving Your Presentation 45
Activating and Using the Remote
Control
The remote control has an on/off switch on its side, as shown. Before
using the remote, make sure batteries are installed as described on
page 48, then push up on the on/off switch to turn it on.
On/off switch
note
If a button is pressed longer
than 60 seconds, the remote
control stops operating to
conserve power. When you
release the button, normal
operation resumes.
46
Turn off the remote control before transporting or storing it; this
prevents the batteries from discharging if something presses against
one of the buttons.
Here are some additional tips:
■
Point the remote control either at the front or back of the
projector, or at the screen.
■
Stand within about 30 feet of the projector. If you want to operate
the projector from a greater distance, a remote control cable set is
available (see page 6).
■
When presenting in a darkened room, press the light button to
make the buttons on the remote light up temporarily.
■
Avoid using the remote under bright fluorescent lamps or in
direct sunlight, or the projector may not respond properly.

Using the Navigation Buttons
The remote control has various buttons that let you navigate the
projector’s help and menu systems; they also let you use the drawing
tools to highlight your presentation. If you’ve connected a computer,
the buttons can be used in place of your computer’s mouse, letting
you walk about freely while controlling your presentation.

Replacing the Batteries
If the projector stops responding to the remote control, check the
following:
■
Make sure the remote control’s on/off switch (shown on page 46)
is in the ON position.
■
Press the light button and check to see if the buttons on the
remote control light up. (If you’re in a bright room, you may not
be able to see them light.)
caution
If the buttons do not light up, replace the batteries as described below:
When replacing batteries,
take the following
precautions:
1. Turn the remote control over.
Replace the batteries as
soon as they run out. If the
batteries leak, wipe away
battery fluid with a soft
cloth. If fluid gets on your
hands, wash immediately.
■
Do not expose batteries to
heat or flame.
■
Dispose of used batteries
according to local
regulations.
2. Press down on the ridges at one
end of the battery cover as you
slide the cover off.

Controlling the Picture and Sound
You can use the remote control to preview and select your picture
sources, temporarily turn off the picture and sound, freeze the action,
zoom in on the picture, display a picture-in-picture image, and adjust
the volume.
note
You can use the projector’s
menus to fine-tune the
picture and sound quality as
described in Chapter 4.
Switching Between Picture Sources
If your projector is connected to more than one computer and/or
video source, you can switch between the different sources:
■
On the projector’s control panel, there are two Source buttons:
Press the Computer/DVI button to switch between equipment
connected to the Computer and DVI ports. Or press the
Video/BNC button to switch between equipment connected to
the Video, S-Video, and BNC ports.
■
On the remote control, there are six Source buttons. Use them to
switch between equipment connected to the port identified on
each button. (The EasyMP button is not functional with the
PowerLite 7800p.)
Note that the Computer and BNC ports can be set up to use different
input signals (for example, Analog RGB or RGB Video)—so if you
have equipment connected to one of these ports, it’s important to
make sure the correct signal is selected to match the equipment you’re
using. You can change the input signal settings using the projector’s
menu system; see page 72.
Source buttons
After you select a source, the screen goes dark for a moment before the
image appears.

Resize button
Adjusts how an image fits into the display area.
For computer images, resizing is normally unnecessary, since the
projector automatically resizes the image to make the best use of
the display area. If you press the Resize button on the remote
control, the projector displays the image at the output resolution
of the computer (which makes the image larger or smaller,
depending on its resolution). If the resolution of the image is the
same as the projector’s (1024 × 768), pressing Resize has no
effect.
note
For video images, pressing resize switches the aspect ratio between

Maintaining the Projector
Y
our projector needs little maintenance. All you have to do on a
regular basis is keep the lens clean. Any dirt or smears on the lens may
show up on your projected image.
warning
Before you clean any part of
the projector, turn it off and
unplug the power cord.
Never open any cover on the
projector, except the lamp
cover. Dangerous electrical
voltages in the projector can
injure you severely. Do not
try to service this product
yourself, except as specifically
explained in this User’s
Guide. Refer all other
servicing to qualified service
personnel.
You also need to periodically clean the air filters at the side and base of
the projector. A clogged air filter can block ventilation needed to cool
the projector.
The only parts you should replace are the lamp and air filters (when
you order a new lamp, replacement filters come with it). If any other
part needs replacing, contact your dealer or a qualified servicer.
This chapter covers the following:
■
Cleaning the lens
■
Cleaning the projector case
■
Cleaning the air filters and vents
■
Replacing the lamp and air filters
■

Maintaining the Projector 93
Cleaning the Lens
Clean the lens whenever you notice dirt or dust on the surface.
■
Use a canister of compressed air to remove dust.
■
To remove dirt or smears on the lens, use lens-cleaning tissue. If
necessary, moisten a soft cloth with lens cleaner and gently wipe
the lens surface.
Remove the cap
before cleaning
Cleaning the Projector Case
Before you clean the case, first turn off the projector and unplug the
power cord.
94
■
To remove dirt or dust, wipe the case with a soft, dry, lint-free
cloth.
■
To remove stubborn dirt or stains, moisten a soft cloth with water
and a neutral detergent. Then wipe the case.
■
Do not use wax, alcohol, benzene, thinner, or other chemical
detergents. These can damage the case.
Maintaining the Projector
Cleaning the Air Filters and Vents
Clean the air filters and air intake vents after every 100 hours of use. If
they are not cleaned periodically, they can become clogged with dust,
preventing proper ventilation. This can cause overheating and damage
the projector.
Follow these steps:
1. Turn off the projector and unplug the power cord.
2. To clean the intake vents, EPSON recommends using a small
vacuum cleaner designed for computers and other office
equipment. If you don’t have one, gently clean the vents with a
soft brush (such as an artist’s paintbrush).
3. Gently turn the projector over and remove the filters from the
side and bottom of the projector. Then use a small vacuum
cleaner or soft brush to clean the filters. Slide the filters back into
place when you’re done.
Maintaining the Projector 95
4. If the dirt is difficult to remove or a filter is broken, replace the
filters as described on the next page. Contact your dealer or call
EPSON at (800) 873-7766 in the United States to obtain new
ones. In Canada, please call (800) 463-7766 for dealer referral.
Replacing the Lamp and Air Filters
note
When you get a replacement
lamp for your projector, new
air filters are included. You
should replace the filters

You can check how long the
lamp has been in use (see
page 99).
warning
The projection lamp typically lasts from 2000 to 3000 hours,
depending on the Brightness Control setting used (see page 66).
Selecting the low brightness setting maximizes the lamp’s life.
It is time to replace the lamp when:
■
The projected image gets darker or starts to deteriorate.
■
The message LAMP REPLACE appears on the screen when the
lamp comes on and the lamp warning light
flashes orange. To
maintain projector brightness and image quality, replace the lamp
as soon as possible.
■
The lamp warning light
flashes red (the lamp is burnt out).
Contact your dealer or call EPSON at (800) 873-7766 in the United
States for a replacement lamp. Request part number V13H010L22. In
Canada, please call (800) 463-7766 for dealer referral.
Let the lamp cool fully
before replacing it.
Follow these steps to replace the lamp and air filters:
In the unlikely event that
the lamp has broken, small
glass fragments may be
present and should be
removed carefully to avoid
injury.
2. When the power light stops flashing, unplug the power cord.

Appendix A: Projector
Installation
T
his appendix provides guidelines on installing the projector in a
permanent location, such as a theater or conference room.
Installation Guidelines
The projector can be installed for four different viewing setups: front
projection, ceiling mounting, rear projection onto a semi-transparent
screen, or rear/ceiling projection, as shown:
Front projection
Ceiling mounting
Rear projection
Rear/ceiling projection
To project from overhead, you’ll need the optional ceiling mounting
hardware; see page 6 for ordering information. You’ll also need to
select Ceiling in the projector’s Advanced1 menu to flip the image
upside-down. To project from the rear, select Rear Proj (see page 74).
Appendix A: Projector Installation 115
If you’re mounting the projector on the ceiling and you place it above
screen level, you’ll have to tilt it down to position the image on-screen.
This causes the image to lose its square shape. You can then correct
the distortion by using the Keystone function in the projector’s
menu system (see page 69) or by using the Keystone buttons on the
projector’s control panel.
If you place the projector so that the base of the lens is level with the
bottom of the screen, the image will be square and you won’t have to
adjust it. If you place the lens lower than the bottom of the screen,
you’ll have to tilt the projector upward if you want to fill the whole
screen with the image.
If you want to be able to control the projector’s settings from a remote
computer, see Chapter 5.
You can also use the remote control to operate more than one
projector. See page 60.

FCC Compliance Statement
For United States Users
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a
Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are
designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a
residential installation. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio
frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the
instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio or television reception.
However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular
installation. If this equipment does cause interference to radio and television
reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on,
the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the
following measures:
■
Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
■
Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
■
Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to
which the receiver is connected.
■
Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
WARNING
The connection of a non-shielded equipment interface cable to this
equipment will invalidate the FCC Certification of this device and may cause
interference levels which exceed the limits established by the FCC for this
equipment. It is the responsibility of the user to obtain and use a shielded
equipment interface cable with this device. If this equipment has more than
one interface connector, do not leave cables connected to unused interfaces.
Changes or modifications not expressly approved by the manufacturer could
void the user’s authority to operate the equipment.
For Canadian Users
This Class B digital apparatus meets all requirements of the Canadian
Interference-Causing Equipment Regulations.
Cet appareil numérique de la classe B respecte toutes les exigences du Règlement
sur le materiel brouilleur du Canada.

Warranty
Epson America, Inc. Limited Warranty
Basic Two-Year Warranty and 90-Day Lamp Warranty
What Is Covered: Epson America, Inc. (“EPSON”) warrants to the first end
user customer of the EPSON product enclosed with this limited warranty
statement that the product, if purchased and used in the United States or
Canada, conforms to the manufacturer’s specifications and will be free from
defects in workmanship and materials for a period of two (2) years from the
date of original purchase (except that the warranty period is 90 days for
projector lamps).
What EPSON Will Do To Correct Problems: If you elect carry-in warranty
service, please bring the product securely packaged in its original container or
an equivalent, along with proof of the date of original purchase, to your
EPSON Dealer or EPSON Customer Care Center. EPSON will, at its
option, repair or replace on an exchange basis 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 previously repaired to the EPSON
standard of quality. Exchange or replacement products or parts assume the
remaining warranty period of the product covered by this limited warranty.
However, each replacement lamp carries the limited 90-day warranty stated
above.
What This Warranty Does Not Cover: This warranty covers only normal
consumer use in the United States and Canada. For lamps, 24-hour-per-day
use causes unusual strain and is not considered normal use. This warranty
does not cover consumables (e.g., fuses), other than lamps. EPSON is not
responsible for warranty service should the EPSON label or logo or the rating
label or serial number be removed or 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 an EPSON
Authorized Servicer. Postage, insurance, or shipping costs incurred in
presenting your EPSON product for carry-in warranty service are your
responsibility. 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
128
Appendix C: Notices
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. 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. IF THE REMEDY ABOVE FAILS, EPSON’S
ENTIRE LIABILITY SHALL BE LIMITED TO A REFUND OF THE
PRICE PAID FOR THE EPSON PRODUCTS COVERED BY THIS
LIMITED WARRANTY.
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.
To locate the Authorized EPSON Servicer nearest you, call the EPSON
