Setting Up the Projector

T his chapter tells you how to set up the projector and connect it to a computer or video source. You can connect up to two devices simultaneously: two computers or two video sources or one of each.

You’ll find instructions for the following in this chapter:

Positioning the projector

Connecting to a computer

Connecting to video sources

Setting Up the Projector

13

Positioning the Projector

Before connecting the projector, you need to decide where to place it. If you’re setting up the projector yourself and it 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, as shown.

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.

Place the projector somewhere between 3 and 35 feet from the screen.

Use the figure below to help you determine exactly how far. Image size increases with distance, but can vary depending on how you’ve adjusted the optical zoom and other settings.

note

You can download the

Projection Distance

Calculator program from the

Drivers and Downloads section of EPSON’s web site:

http://epson.com

.

30 to 35.5 feet 5.9 to 6.8 feet 2.9 to 3.4 feet

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. Do not set the projector on top of loose papers that could block the vents under the projector.

Make sure the projector is within 6 feet of a grounded electrical outlet or extension cord.

14

Setting Up the Projector

Try to place the projector directly in front of the center of the screen, facing it toward the screen squarely. If the projector isn’t positioned this way, the image will be “keystone” shaped, instead of square or rectangular.

If you place the projector below the level of the screen, you’ll have to tilt it up by extending the feet. This also causes the image to lose its rectangular shape, but the Auto Keystone feature corrects the distortion automatically. If the image does not regain its rectangular shape, the tilt angle is greater than 15° or the Auto Keystone feature

may have been disabled. To turn it on, see page 52. To adjust it

manually, see page 35.

note

The Auto Keystone feature corrects vertical distortion automatically. For more

information, see page 35.

Other Installations

You can also project from behind the screen or from the ceiling, with the projector mounted upside-down:

Rear projection (using a translucent screen)

Rear/ceiling projection (using a translucent screen)

Front/ceiling projection

To project from overhead, you’ll need the optional ceiling mount

hardware. (See page 12 for ordering information.) You’ll also need to

select

Front/Ceiling

or

Rear/Ceiling

for the

Projection

option in the

Advanced menu. To project from the rear, select

Rear

. See page 53

for more information.

Setting Up the Projector

15

note

If you have an iBook with an

RCA video-out port, follow the instructions for connecting to a video device

on page 22.

Connecting to a Computer

You can connect the PowerLite projector to any Macintosh or

IBM ® -compatible PC that has a standard video output (monitor) port, including PC notebook and laptop computers, Macintosh

PowerBooks and iBooks, and hand-held devices. You can connect two computers at the same time.

Follow the instructions in this section to:

Connect the VGA computer cable to the projector

Connect your computer’s monitor cable to the projector (if you want to view your display on the desktop computer screen)

Connect the mouse cable (if you want to use the remote control as a mouse)

Connect an optional audio cable (if you’ll be projecting with audio)

note

If your computer provides video output through BNC connectors, you can use the optional VGA-to-BNC cable

instead. See page 12.

Connecting the VGA Computer Cable

Before you start, make sure your computer and the projector are turned off.

1. If you are connecting the projector to a desktop computer, disconnect the monitor cable from your computer.

2. Locate the VGA computer cable that came with the projector.

VGA computer cable

16

Setting Up the Projector

3. Connect one end of the cable to the projector’s

Computer1/Component Video1 or the

Computer2/Component Video2

port. If you are going to connect your computer monitor to the projector for simultaneous display, use the

Computer1/Component Video1

port.

4. Connect the other end of the cable to your computer’s video-out or monitor port.

If you’re using a PowerBook or iBook and you can’t connect the cable, you may need to use the Macintosh desktop adapter as

shown below (available from EPSON; see page 12).

To use the adapter, remove its cover as shown and set its DIP switches according to the resolution you want to use, such as

16-inch mode. See your Macintosh documentation for instructions.

Replace the cover and connect the adapter to the free end of the computer video cable. Then plug the cable (with the adapter) into the video port on your

Macintosh.

5. If you want to view the display simultaneously on your computer monitor and the projector

screen, see “Connecting a Monitor” on page 18.

6. Tighten the screws on the connectors.

Setting Up the Projector

17

After projection starts, select the correct source (either

Computer1

or

Computer2

)

when you want to project this source. See page 30.

If you don’t need to make any other connections, you can plug in

your projector and turn it on. See page 28 for instructions.

note

Some LCD monitors may not be able to display the image correctly. If you have trouble displaying the image, connect a multiscan monitor. If you’re projecting computer images, make sure the computer’s refresh rate is set to 65 Hz or greater.

Connecting a Monitor

If you want to see your presentation close-up as well as on the screen, you can connect an external monitor to the projector. This lets you view images on your computer monitor while the projector is in standby mode (plugged in but not turned on) and check your presentation or switch between picture sources even if you’ve pressed the

A/V Mute

button to turn off projection on the screen.

Simultaneous display is possible only when the computer is connected to the projector’s

Computer1/Component Video1

port.

Make sure the projector and computer are off. Then connect the monitor’s cable to the projector’s

Monitor Out

port, as shown:

18

Setting Up the Projector

If you don’t need to make any other connections, you can plug in

your projector and turn it on. See page 28 for instructions.

Connecting the Cable for Remote Mouse

Control

Using the remote control as a wireless mouse lets you click through slideshow-style presentations, such as PowerPoint, from up to 20 feet away. This makes it easy to deliver your presentation, since you won’t need to stand near your computer.

To use the wireless mouse function, your system must have a USB port and the full version of one of these operating systems:

Windows

Windows 98, 2000, Me, and XP

Macintosh

Macintosh OS 8.6 to 9.2, OS X

1. If you are using a desktop computer, disconnect the mouse cable from your computer.

2. Locate the USB mouse cable that came with the projector and connect the square end of the cable to the projector’s USB port.

3. Connect the flat end of the cable to an available USB port on your computer.

4. If necessary, configure your laptop to work with an external mouse.

If you don’t need to make any other connections, you can plug in

your projector and turn it on. See page 28 for instructions.

Setting Up the Projector

19

Amplifying Computer Audio

Your computer probably has its own sound system; however, it may not be adequate for your presentation. If you need more volume, you can connect a computer audio cable to take advantage of the projector’s built-in amplifier and speaker. You can obtain a computer audio cable (3.5-mm stereo miniplug cable) from a computer or electronics dealer.

1. Connect one end of the audio cable to the

Audio1 jack on the projector.

note

The Audio menu also lets you adjust the volume.

2. Connect the other end of the audio cable to your laptop’s

headphone jack or audio-out jack, or your desktop’s speaker or audio-out port.

3. After you turn on your projector, open the Audio menu and make sure

Audio 1

is selected for the

Audio Input

setting. See page 51.

If you don’t need to make any other connections, you can plug in

your projector and turn it on. See page 28 for instructions.

20

Setting Up the Projector

Connecting to a High-End Workstation

Your PowerLite projector is capable of remapping input resolutions up to 1600

×

1200 pixels (on the PowerLite 74c) or up to

1280

×

1024 pixels (on the PowerLite 54c). Since 1280

×

1024 pixels is the default resolution for most leading workstations, your projector is ideal for displaying workstation video output.

There is no standard for workstation video output. Workstations that follow the SXGA standard and use the HD15 (standard VGA) connector won’t need an adapter cable or any special connection device. However, your system may vary; contact your computer dealer if you need help connecting your workstation.

Setting Up the Projector

21

note

The projector does not support TV antenna cable

F connectors.

Connecting to Video Sources

You can connect a DVD player, VCR, camcorder, laser disc player, digital camera, gaming console—such as Microsoft Xbox, Sony

PlayStation 2, or Nintendo GameCube—or any other compatible video source to your projector. You can connect up to two video devices at time (or one computer and one video device).

The projector supports HDTV, NTSC, PAL, and SECAM, and automatically detects the video format. It can receive composite video,

S-Video, and component video. The type of cable you need depends on the video source:

For composite video, use the RCA A/V cable included with the projector. See below.

For S-Video, use the S-Video cable supplied with your video

device or order one from EPSON (ELPSV01). See page 24.

For RGB video, use the VGA computer cable included with the

projector. See page 25.

For component video, you’ll need the optional EPSON

component video cable (ELPKC19). See page 26.

note

If you should happen to enable the password before you set one, and you see the prompt to enter the password, enter the default password:

0000

to proceed.

Enabling Password Protection

To prevent unauthorized use of the projector, you can assign it a password. If you do, a screen appears requesting the password whenever the projector is turned on. If you enter the password incorrectly three times in succession, the projector’s operation is locked and you’ll need to disconnect the power cord, then reconnect it to redisplay the password screen. If an incorrect password is entered nine times in a row, the projector is locked and you’ll need to contact

EPSON to unlock it. See “Where To Get Help” on page 83.

If you have created a user’s logo for the projector (as described on

page 56), you can also lock the logo on so it is displayed as the startup

screen and/or AV/Mute screen. Unauthorized users cannot turn it off or change it. This feature is intended to discourage theft and provides a way to identify the projector should it be stolen.

Additionally, if someone else will be using the projector for a while but you want to make sure that person returns it by a certain time, you can temporarily disable the password for set period. When that time has elapsed, the password is reactivated and must be entered before the projector can be used.

Follow the instructions below to first set the password, and then turn on the password and/or user logo protection. Be sure to set the password before you turn it on; otherwise, you may lock yourself out of the projector.

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 and filter covers. 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.

Y our projector needs little maintenance. All you need 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.

You also need to periodically clean the air filter on the bottom of the projector. A clogged air filter can block ventilation needed to cool the projector and cause overheating.

The only parts you should replace are the lamp and air filter. If any other part needs replacing, contact your dealer or a qualified servicer.

caution

Do not use glass cleaner to clean the lens.

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 paper. If necessary, moisten a soft cloth with lens cleaner and gently wipe the lens surface.

Cleaning the Projector Case

Before you clean the case, first turn off the projector and unplug the power cord.

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 mild detergent. Then wipe the case.

Do not use wax, alcohol, benzene, paint thinner, or other chemical detergents. These can damage the case.

64

Maintaining and Transporting the Projector

Cleaning and Replacing the Air Filter

Clean the air filter on the bottom of the projector after every 100 hours of use. If it is not cleaned periodically, it can become clogged with dust, preventing proper ventilation. This can cause overheating and damage the projector. When the filter is clogged, the projector displays the message “The projector is overheated.”

To clean the air filter, follow these steps:

1. Turn off the projector, allow it to cool down, and unplug the power cord.

2. Turn the projector upside-down, as shown below.

3. To clean the filter, EPSON recommends using a small vacuum cleaner designed for computers and other office equipment. If you don’t have one, gently clean the filter using a very soft brush (such as an artist’s camel-hair brush).

If the dirt is difficult to remove or if the filter is torn, replace it.

Contact your dealer or call EPSON at (800) 873-7766 to obtain a new one. The air filter set (part number V13H134A05) contains five filters. In Canada, please call (800) 463-7766 to locate a dealer.

note

When you get a replacement lamp for your projector, a new air filter is included.

You should replace the filter when you replace the lamp.

note

Because of the different technologies used, your projected image may not exactly match the colors on your laptop or computer monitor.

You see vertical stripes or the image still looks blurry after trying the solutions in the previous section.

If you’re projecting from a computer and displaying an image that contains a lot of fine detail, you may notice one or more vertical stripes or bands, or some of the characters may look heavy or blurred. Press the

Auto

button on the remote control. This resets the projector’s tracking and sync settings.

If further adjustment is needed, you can fine-tune the

Tracking and

Sync

settings manually using the Image menu as described

on page 49.

1. Fill the screen with an image containing fine detail when making these adjustments. For example, in Windows you can select a pattern to appear as your desktop background. Or try projecting black text on a white background.

2. Adjust the

Tracking

to eliminate vertical stripes.

3. Adjust the

Sync

to increase the sharpness of the image.

The colors of the image are not right.

Try selecting a different Color Mode.

If you’re displaying video, adjust the

Color

and

Tint

settings on

the Image menu. See page 48 for instructions.

Adjust the

Brightness

and

Contrast

settings on the Image menu.

Try adjusting the

Color Adjustment setting on the Advanced menu.

If the images appear too green or too purple, check that the

Input Signal

or

Video Input

setting is correct on the Image menu.

Check your computer display settings to correct the color balance.

If the image seems dark, the lamp may be nearing time for

replacement. Check the lamp hours as described on page 55 and

replace it, if necessary, as described on page 67.

80

Solving Problems

There is no sound.

Try turning up the volume in the Audio menu (see page 51).

Make sure the

A/V Mute

function is not on.

If you’re using a VCR or other video source, make sure its volume is not turned all the way down or muted. Also, make sure the

cables are connected correctly, as described in Chapter 1.

Make sure the audio cable is connected to the correct Audio port.

See page 20 or page 23.

If your presentation includes computer audio, make sure the volume control on your computer is not turned all the way down or muted. Make sure the audio cable is securely connected to both the projector and your computer’s headphone jack or

audio out jack. See page 20.

Make sure the Windows volume controls on your computer are not turned all the way down or set to Mute. Check this by clicking the volume control in your Windows System Tray (lower right corner of the screen).

The wrong source may be selected. Press the

Source button on the projector—or the

Computer1/2

or

S-Video/Video

button on the remote control—to select the correct source.

Check the

Audio Input

setting in the Audio menu.

Solving Password Problems

You have forgotten the password.

Write down the request code that appears in the Password Protect

Release screen and contact EPSON. See “Where To Get Help” on page 83.

If you turned on the password protect feature before setting the password and no password was set before, try using the default password:

0000

.

You don’t have the remote control.

You must have the remote control to enter the password. If necessary, you can purchase a replacement remote control from EPSON (part number: V12H007T13).

Solving Problems with the Remote

Control

The projector doesn’t respond to remote control commands.

Make sure the tape has been removed from the battery tray as

described on page 40.

Make sure you are within 20 feet of the projector, and within range of the projector’s front or back sensor (approximately 30° to the left or right and 15° above or below).

The remote control battery may not be installed correctly or may

be low on power. Change the battery as described on page 44.

Dim the room lights and turn off any fluorescents. Make sure the projector is not in direct sunlight. Strong lighting, especially fluorescent lights, may affect the projector’s infrared receivers.

Turn off any nearby equipment that emits infrared energy, such as a radiant room heater.

You have lost the remote control.

You need the remote control to access many projector features. If you have lost it, you can order another from EPSON (part number

V12H007T13).

To prevent losing the remote control, store it in the compartment

beneath the projector, as described on page 40.

You can’t control the mouse pointer with the remote control.

Make sure the mouse cable is securely connected to both your computer’s mouse port or USB port and the projector’s USB

port. For details, see page 19.

Make sure

RS232C

is selected as the COM Port setting in the

Advanced menu. See page 54.

To use the USB mouse connection on a PC, your system must have a “clean” installation of Windows 98, Windows Me,

Windows XP, or Windows 2000. The connection may not work correctly if your system was upgraded from Windows 95.

Appendix B: Notices

T his appendix includes safety instructions and other important information about your EPSON PowerLite 54c/74c.

Important Safety Instructions

Follow these safety instructions when setting up and using the projector:

Do not place the projector on an unstable cart, stand, or table.

Do not use the projector near water or sources of heat.

Use attachments only as recommended.

Use the type of power source indicated on the projector. If you are not sure of the power available, consult your dealer or power company.

Place the projector near a wall outlet where the plug can be easily unplugged.

Placez le projecteur près d’une prise de contacte où la fiche peut être débranchée facilement.

Insert the projector’s two-wire plug into an electrical outlet. Do not hold the plug with wet hands.

Take the following precautions for the plug. Failure to comply with these precautions could result in sparks or fire: Do not insert the plug into an outlet with dust present. Insert the plug firmly into the outlet.

Do not overload wall outlets, extension cords, or integral convenience receptacles. This can cause fire or electric shock.

Do not place the projector where the cord can be walked on. This may result in fraying or damage to the plug.

Unplug the projector from the wall outlet before cleaning. Use a damp cloth for cleaning. Do not use liquid or aerosol cleaners.

Do not block the slots and openings in the projector case. They provide ventilation and prevent the projector from overheating. Do not operate the projector on a sofa, rug, or other soft surface, or in a closed-in cabinet unless proper ventilation is provided.

Appendix B: Notices

91

92

Appendix B: Notices

Never push objects of any kind through cabinet slots. Never spill liquid of any kind into the projector.

Except as specifically explained in this User’s Guide, do not attempt to service this product yourself. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel. Opening or removing covers may expose you to dangerous voltages and other hazards.

This product includes a lamp component that contains mercury. Please consult your state and local regulations regarding disposal or recycling.

Do not put it in the trash.

Unplug the projector during lightning storms or when it will not be used for extended periods.

Do not place the projector and remote control on top of heat-producing equipment or in a hot location.

Unplug the projector from the wall outlet and refer servicing to qualified service personnel under the following conditions: When the power cord or plug is damaged or frayed. If liquid has been spilled into the projector, or if it has been exposed to rain or water. If it does not operate normally when you follow the operating instructions, or if it exhibits a distinct change in performance, indicating a need for service. If it has been dropped or the housing has been damaged.

If you use the projector in a country other than where you purchased it, use the correct power cord for that country.

Do not stand on the projector or place heavy objects on it.

Do not attempt to remove the lamp immediately after use. Allow the lamp to cool for approximately one hour before removing it.

Do not use the projector outside of the required temperature range:

41 to 95 °F (5 to 35 °C). Doing so may cause an unstable display and an excessive load on the fan, leading to projector damage.

Do not store the projector outside of the required temperature range—

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 use the projector with the lens cap in place. The heat generated by the lamp may damage the cap.

The liquid crystal display panel contains more than 99.99% active pixels. However, 0.01% of the pixels may be missing or constantly illuminated.

Remote Control Information

You can operate the projector by remote control via a line-of-sight infrared

(IR) receiver at the front and rear of the projector. The projector may not respond to remote control commands under the following conditions:

There is an object between the remote control IR emitter and the IR receiver on the projector.

Ambient light is too bright.

Certain types of fluorescent lighting are used.

A strong light source shines into the IR receiver.

Other equipment that emits infrared energy, such as a radiant room heater, is in the room.

These conditions commonly cause problems for most infrared-controlled equipment. Try the following:

The remote control unit’s battery may be low on power; replace it.

Dim the ambient lighting and/or turn off any fluorescent lights.

Close any window coverings and/or move the projector out of direct sunlight.

Turn off other equipment that emits infrared energy.

If the remote control still does not work correctly, you can always run your computer-based presentation directly from the computer.

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. 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

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.
