Remote control effective range
Infra-Red (IR) remote control sensor is located on the front of the projector. The remote control must be held at an angle within 30 degrees perpendicular to the projector's IR remote control sensor to function correctly. The distance between the remote control and the sensor should not exceed 8 meters (~ 26 feet). Make sure that there are no obstacles between the remote control and the IR sensor on the projector that might obstruct the infra-red beam.
Connecting a monitor
If you want to view your presentation close-up on a monitor as well as on the screen, you can connect the D-SUB OUT signal output socket on the projector to an external monitor with a VGA cable following the instructions below:
To connect the projector to a monitor:
1. 2. Connect the projector to a computer as described in "Connecting a computer" on page 17. Take a suitable VGA cable (only one supplied) and connect one end of the cable to the D-Sub input socket of the video monitor. Or if your monitor is equipped with a DVI input socket, take a VGA to DVI-A cable and connect the DVI end of the cable to the DVI input socket of the video monitor. Connect the other end of the cable to the D-SUB OUT socket on the projector.
The final connection path should be like that shown in the following diagram: Notebook or desktop computer
VGA cable VGA to DVI cable VGA cable
The D-Sub output only works when an appropriate D-Sub input is made to the projector. If you wish to use this connection method when the projector is in standby mode, make sure the Standby D-Sub Output function is turned on in the SYSTEM SETUP: Advanced menu. See "Standby D-Sub Output" on page 46 for details.
Connecting Video source devices
You can connect your projector to various Video source devices that provide any one of the following output sockets: HDMI Component Video S-Video Video (composite) You need only connect the projector to a Video source device using just one of the above connecting methods, however each provides a different level of video quality. The method you choose will most likely depend upon the availability of matching terminals on both the projector and the Video source device as described below:
Best video quality
The best available video connection method is HDMI. HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) supports uncompressed video data transmission between compatible devices like DTV tuners, DVD players and displays over a single cable. It provides pure digital viewing experience. See "Connecting an HDMI device" on page 20 for how to connect the projector to a HDMI device. If no HDMI source is available, the next best available video connection method is Component Video (not to be confused with composite Video). Digital TV tuner and DVD players output Component Video natively, so if available on your devices, this should be your connection method of choice in preference to (composite) Video. See "Connecting a Component Video source device" on page 21 for how to connect the projector to a component video device.
If the projector is not placed on a flat surface or the screen and the projector are not perpendicular to each other, the projected image becomes trapezoidal. To correct this situation, see "Correcting keystone" on page 30 for details.
Do not look into the lens while the lamp is on. The strong light from the lamp may cause damage to your eyes. Be careful when you press the adjuster button as it is close to the exhaust vent where hot air comes from.
