Connecting the InFocus LP500 Projector to a Dell Latitude C840
The following documentation provides instructions that guide users in the process of connecting an InFocus LP500 DLP projector to a Dell Latitude C840 wireless laptop computer. These instructions should be similar to other projector and computer setups.
Getting to Know the Back of Your Computer
1. There are two main connections that are located on the back of a laptop computer (or a desktop computer) that are used to communicate with multimedia LCD/DLP projectors. One connection is the VIDEO CONNECTOR. The cord that comes with the projector will connect the projector to this port.
2. NOTE: Multimedia projectors function as a modern day replacement for a slide projector, transparency adapter, or a whiteboard.
The other connection for this projector is the USB CONNECTOR. This port transmits the signals from the laptop to the projector through the same cord that is used for the VIDEO CONNECTOR. This step is not necessary, but if the user wants to use the remote control that comes with the projector, then this step is necessary.

Shown in the image to the right are the actual cords that will connect the laptop computer to the multimedia projector. Most projectors will have similar connections to connect to a laptop or desktop computer. In addition, the projector has a S-Video CONNECTOR that can receive video from a VCR, TV or other video sources.
Connecting your Computer to the Multimedia Projector
1. As shown in the image above, connect the COMPUTER CABLE to the VIDEO CONNECTOR and the USB CONNECTOR of the Dell Latitude C840. See step 4 that explains the function of the USB CONNECTOR. Connect the Audio Cable to the AUDIO CONNECTOR located on the side of the Latitude C840, if you want to have sound played through the projector. Connect the COMPUTER CABLE to the connection located on the back of the projector. It is listed as CONNECTION TO COMPUTER in the image below.
Next, connect the AUDIO CABLE running from the laptop to the AUDIO IN port located on the back of the projector. Remember this is an optional step. If you want to use the projector remote, plug the USB Connector on the COMPUTER CABLE into either of the USB ports located on the back of the Latitude C840. Thisstep is not necessary and will not prohibit proper projector functionality.
Revised 06-20-03 Page 2 of 4
Next, plug in the POWER CORD to the projector and connect it to a standard 3-pronged electrical outlet. Remember, plugging the unit into a surge protector instead of directly into the wall provides some security from electrical surges that might damage the computer equipment. But, remember the surge protector must be turned on to allow power to be supplied to the projector.
On the InFocus LP500 shown in these images, the POWER RECEPTACLE is located on the right side when looking at the projector from the front. The projectors height adjustment is also located on this same side. Users can push the ELEVATOR button to release the ELEVATOR foot, which will allow raising the projector to the desired height.
On top of the projector are the control buttons. The three most important buttons are the SOURCE button, the STANDBY button, and the MENU/SELECT button. The SOURCE button will let users select the video source they want to display through the projector. The STANDBY button prevents the projectors bulb from burn-in when not in use and allows the projector time to cool down after prolonged use. The MENU/SELECT button will allow users to customize the settings on the projector.

Steps to Ensure Successful Functionality of the Projector
1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. Make sure the projector is unplugged and the laptop is powered off. Connect the desired cables as outlined in the previous pages to the laptop and the projector. Remove the lens cap of the projector. Press the green power button located on top of the projector. A tone will sound indicating that software for the projector is initializing. When the LED light is solid green, the Infocus startup screen will appear. Turn on the laptop. For Windows ME, 2000 and XP users, the USB drivers will be installed for the remote if you chose to plug in that connector located on the computer cable. At this point, the computer image should display through the projector. If it doesnt, look at the following options for probable solutions. Press the SOURCE button on the projector keypad or the DATAbutton on the remote to display the computer image. Make sure your Latitude C840s external video port is activated. For this make and model of laptop, hold down the FN key while pressing the F8 key to cycle through the display options. Make sure the computers resolution is set to 800 by 600. Make sure the laptop is running on AC not just battery.
When you are ready to turn off the projector, follow these steps. Press the POWER button on the projector keypad or remote. The lamp will turn off and the LED light will blink orange. When the LED light turns green, the fans will shut off indicating the lamp has cooled. It is now safe to pack the projector and laptop back in to their respective bags.

Using Video Mirroring with a PowerBook Computer When you turn video mirroring (called SimulScan in newer PowerBookssee below) on, the projector displays the same information that appears on your PowerBooks built-in screen. When video mirroring is off, the projector acts like a separate display. To turn on video mirroring for the first time: 1 Open the Monitors control panel; click on Monitor 2. 2 Set the number of colors you want. 3 Open the Control Strip, then click on the monitor icon. 4 Select Turn Video Mirroring On. Now you can turn video mirroring on and off from the Control Strip without having to open the Monitors control panel again. When using video mirroring and high color graphics such as slide shows, the projected image occasionally might turn black and white. If this happens, perform the following steps: 1 Turn off video mirroring. 2 Open the Monitors control panel. 3 Move the white menu bar to Monitor 2 to set the projector as the primary monitor. 4 Restart the PowerBook.
Some newer PowerBooks display images on an external monitor or projector differently than previous ones. When using SimulScan, the projector displays the same information that appears on your PowerBook To select SimulScan: 1 Open the Control Panel, then double-click Monitors and Sound. 2 In the Resolution list, choose the SimulScan mode, then click OK. 3 If this changes your display settings, a dialog box appears. Click OK to confirm the change. 63
