10 Introduction

Ceiling mounting the projector

We want you to have a pleasant experience using your BenQ projector, so we need to bring this safety matter to your attention to prevent possible damage to person and property.

If you intend to mount your projector on the ceiling, we strongly recommend that you use a proper fitting BenQ projector ceiling mount kit and that you ensure it is securely and safely installed.

If you use a non-BenQbrand projector ceiling mount kit, there is a safety risk that the projector may fall from the ceiling due to an improper attachment through the use of the wrong gauge or length screws.

You can purchase a BenQ projector ceiling mount kit from the place you purchased your BenQ projector. BenQ recommends that you also purchase a separate Kensington lock compatible security cable and attach it securely to both the Kensington lock slot on the projector and the base of the ceiling mount bracket. This will perform the secondary role of restraining the projector should its attachment to the mounting bracket become loose.

Operating the LASER pointer

The Laser Pointer is a presentation aid for professionals. It emits red colored light when you press it and the indicator lights up red.

The laser beam is visible. It is necessary to press and hold LASER for continuous output.

Do not look into the laser light window or shine the laser light beam on yourself or others. See the warning messages on the back of the remote control prior to using it.

The laser pointer is not a toy. Parents should be mindful of the dangers of laser energy and keep this remote control out of the reach of children.

Introduction 13

Infra-Red(IR) remote control sensor is located on the front of the projector. The remote control must be held at an angle within 22.5 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-redbeam.

Replacing the remote control battery

1.To open the battery cover, turn the remote control over to view its back, push on the finger grip on the cover and slide it up in the direction of the arrow as illustrated. The cover will slide off.

2.Remove any existing batteries (if necessary) and install two AAA batteries observing the battery polarities as indicated in the base of the battery compartment. Positive (+) goes to positive and negative (-)goes to negative.

3.Refit the cover by aligning it with the base and sliding it back down into position. Stop when it clicks into place.

• Avoid excessive heat and humidity.

• There may be battery damage if the battery is incorrectly replaced.

• Replace only with the same or equivalent type recommended by the battery manufacturer.

• Dispose of the used battery according to the battery manufacturer’s instructions.

• Never throw a battery into a fire. There may be danger of an explosion.

• If the battery is dead or if you will not be using the remote control for a long time, remove the battery to prevent damage to the remote control from possible battery leakage.

14 Introduction

Positioning your projector

Choosing a location

Your room layout or personal preference will dictate which installation location you select. Take into consideration the size and position of your screen, the location of a suitable power outlet, as well as the location and distance between the projector and the rest of your equipment.

Your projector is designed to be installed in one of four possible installation locations:

1. Front Table

Select this location with the projector placed near the floor in front of the screen. This is the most common way to position the projector for quick setup and portability.

2. Front Ceiling

Select this location with the projector suspended upsidedown from the ceiling in front of the screen.

Purchase the BenQ Projector Ceiling Mounting Kit from your dealer to mount your projector on the ceiling.

Set Front Ceiling in the SYSTEM SETUP: Basic >

Projector Position menu after you turn the projector on.

3. Rear Table

Select this location with the projector placed near the floor behind the screen.

Note that a special rear projection screen is required.

Set Rear Table in the SYSTEM SETUP: Basic > Projector

Obtaining a preferred projected image size

The distance from the projector lens to the screen, the zoom setting (if available), and the video format each factors in the projected image size.

16:9 is the native aspect ratio of this projector.

display area

The projector should always be placed horizontally level (like flat on a table), and positioned directly perpendicular (90° right-anglesquare) to the horizontal center of the screen. This prevents image distortion caused by angled projections (or projecting onto angled surfaces).

If the projector is mounted on a ceiling, it must be mounted upside-downso that it projects at a slightly downward angle.

You can see from the diagram on page 18, that this type of projection causes the bottom edge of the projected image to be vertically offset from the horizontal plane of the projector. When ceiling mounted, this refers to the top edge of the projected image.

If the projector is positioned further away from the screen, the projected image size increases, and the vertical offset also increases proportionately.

When determining the position of the screen and projector, you will need to account for both the projected image size and the vertical offset dimension, which are proportional to the projection distance.

BenQ has provided a table of screen sizes to assist you in determining the ideal location for your projector. There are two dimensions to consider, the perpendicular horizontal distance from the center of the screen (projection distance), and the vertical offset height of the projector from the horizontal edge of the screen (offset).

16 Positioning your projector

How to determine the position of the projector for a given screen size

1.Select your screen size.

2.Refer to the table on page 18 and find the closest match to your screen size in the left columns labelled"Screen size". Using this value, look across this row to the right to find the corresponding average distance from screen value in the column labelled"Average". This is the projection distance.

3.On that same row, look across to the right column and make note of the "Vertical offset (mm)" value. This will determine the final vertical offset placement of the projector in relation to the edge of the screen.

4.The recommended position for the projector is aligned perpendicular to the horizontal center of the screen, at the distance from the screen determined in step 2

above, and offset by the value determined in step 3 above.

For example, if you are using a 120-inchscreen, the average projection distance is 4710 mm and with a vertical offset of 513 mm.

How to determine the recommended screen size for a given distance

This method can be used for situations where you have purchased this projector and would like to know what screen size will fit in your room.

The maximum screen size is limited by the physical space available in your room.

1.Measure the distance between the projector and where you want to position the screen. This is the projection distance.

2.Refer to the table on page 18 and find the closest match to your measurement in the average distance from screen column labelled"Average". Check that your measured distance is between the min and max distances listed on either side of the average distance value.

3.Using this value, look across that row to the left to find the corresponding "Screen size" listed in that row. That is the projected image size of the projector at that projection distance.

4.On that same row, look across to the right column and make note of the "Vertical offset (mm)" value. This will determine the final placement of the screen in relation to the horizontal plane of the projector.

For example, if your measured projection distance was 4.0 m (4000 mm), the closest match in the "Average" column is 3920 mm. Looking across this row shows that a100-inchscreen is required.

If you place the projector in a different position (to that recommended), you will have to tilt it down or up to center the image on the screen. In these situations, some image distortion will occur. Use the Keystone function to correct the distortion. See "Correcting keystone" on page 24 for details.

There is 3% tolerance among these numbers due to optical component variations. BenQ recommends that if you intend to permanently install the projector, you should physically test the projection size and distance using the actual projector in situ before you permanently install it, so as to make allowance for this projector's optical characteristics. This will help you determine the exact mounting position so that it best suits your installation location.

18 Positioning your projector

Connection

When connecting a signal source to the projector, be sure to:

1.Turn all equipment off before making any connections.

2.Use the correct signal cables for each source.

3.Ensure the cables are firmly inserted.

32 Operation

*About color temperatures:

There are many different shades that are considered to be "white" for various purposes. One of the common methods of representing white color is known as the “color temperature”. A white color with a low color temperature appears to be reddish white. A white color with a high color temperature appears to have more blue in it.

3D Color Management

In most installation situations, color management will not be necessary, such as in classroom, meeting room, or lounge room situations where lights remain on, or where building external windows allow daylight into the room.

Only in permanent installations with controlled lighting levels such as boardrooms, lecture theaters, or home theaters, should color management be considered. Color management provides fine color control adjustment to allow for more accurate color reproduction, should you require it.

Proper color management can only be achieved under controlled and reproducible viewing conditions. You will need to use a colorimeter (color light meter), and provide a set of suitable source images to measure color reproduction. These tools are not provided with the projector, however, your projector supplier should be able to provide you with suitable guidance, or even an experienced professional installer.

The Color Management provides six sets (RGBCMY) of colors to be adjusted. When you select each color, you can independently adjust its range and saturation according to your preference.

If you have purchased a test disc which contains various color test patterns and can be used to test the color presentation on monitors, TVs, projectors, etc. You can project any image from the disc on the screen and enter the 3D Color Management menu to make adjustments.

To adjust the settings:

1.Go to the PICTURE menu and highlight 3D Color Management.

2.Press MODE/ENTER and the 3D Color Management page displays.

3.Highlight Primary Color and press /to select a color from among Red, Yellow, Green, Cyan, Blue, or Magenta.

4.Press to highlight Hue and press/to select its range. Increase in the range will include colors consisted of more proportions of its two adjacent colors.

Please refer to the illustration to the right for how the colors relate to each other.

For example, if you select Red and set its

range at 0, only pure red in the projected RED picture will be selected. Increasing its range

will include red close to yellow and red close

to magenta.

Maintenance

Care of the projector

Your projector needs little maintenance. The only thing you need to do on a regular basis is to keep the lens and case clean.

Never remove any parts of the projector except the lamp. Contact your dealer if other parts need replacing.

Cleaning the lens

Clean the lens whenever you notice dirt or dust on the surface.

Use a canister of compressed air to remove dust.

If there is dirt or smears, use lens-cleaningpaper or moisten a soft cloth with lens cleaner and gently wipe the lens surface.

Never use any type of abrasive pad, alkaline/acid cleaner, scouring powder, or volatile solvent, such as alcohol, benzene, thinner or insecticide. Using such materials or maintaining prolonged contact with rubber or vinyl materials may result in damage to the projector surface and cabinet material.

Never rub the lens with abrasive materials.

Cleaning the projector case

Before you clean the case, turn the projector off using the proper shutdown procedure as described in "Shutting down the projector" on page 38 and unplug the power cord.

To remove dirt or dust, wipe the case with a soft, lint-freecloth.

To remove stubborn dirt or stains, moisten a soft cloth with water and a neutral pH detergent. Then wipe the case.

Never use wax, alcohol, benzene, thinner or other chemical detergents. These can damage the case.

Storing the projector

If you need to store the projector for an extended time, please follow the instructions below:

Make sure the temperature and humidity of the storage area are within the recommended range for the projector. Please refer to "Specifications" on page 81 or consult your dealer about the range.

Retract the adjuster feet.

Remove the battery from the remote control.

Pack the projector in its original packing or equivalent.

Transporting the projector

It is recommended that you ship the projector with its original packing or equivalent.

Maintenance 73

Lamp information

Getting to know the lamp hour

Extending lamp life

The projection lamp is a consumable item. To keep the lamp life as long as possible, you can do the following settings via the OSD menu.

Setting Lamp Mode as Economic

Using Economic mode reduces system noise and power consumption by 20%. If the Economic mode is selected, the light output will be reduced and result in darker projected pictures.

Setting the projector in Economic mode also extends the lamp operation life. To set Economic mode, go into the SYSTEM SETUP: Advanced > Lamp Settings > Lamp Mode menu and press /.

Setting Auto Power Off

This function allows the projector to turn off automatically if no input source is detected after a set period of time to prevent unnecessary waste of lamp life.

To set Auto Power Off, go into the SYSTEM SETUP: Basic > Operation Settings > Auto Power Off menu and press /. The time period can be set from 5 to 30 minutes in 5- minute increments. If the preset time lengths are not suitable for your presentation, select Disable. The projector will not automatically shut down in a certain time period.

Accessibility Requirements for Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Section 508

BenQ’s commitment to accessible products allows us to support government in making accessible technology choices BenQ’s LCD monitors and projectors are compliant with Section 508 guidelines by including the assistive features as below:

BenQ’s monitors have colored “Power” indicators. While the indicator shows green, it means that the monitor is using the full power. While the indicator shows yellow or amber, it means that the monitor is in suspend or sleep mode and is using less than 2 watts of electricity.

BenQ’s monitors have a variety of settings of pre-programmedflicker-freetiming to make the screen shown on the monitor readily accessible. The default timing setting is automatically turned on every time the monitor is powered up, and thus reduces the hassle of user intervention.

BenQ’s monitors and projectors have options for brightness and contrast adjustments that text and images could be displayed differently to meet the demands of the visually impaired. Other similar adjustments are also available by using the On-ScreenDisplay (OSD) controls on the products.

BenQ’s monitors and projectors include user-selectablecolor controls, such as color temperature selections (Monitor: 5800K, 6500K and 9300K, Projector: 5500K, 6500K, 7500K and 9300K), with a wide range of contrast levels.

BenQ’s multimedia monitors and projectors usually have one or two speakers for audio performance which allow users (including hearing impaired) to interact with the computer systems connected. Speaker controls are typically located on the front-panel.

Firmware of BenQ’s monitors and projectors contain unique product information that helps computer systems to identify BenQ products and activate their Plug-and-Playfunction when connected.

All BenQ’s monitors and projectors are compatible with the PC99 standard. For example, connectors are color-codedto help users easily connecting products to computer systems correctly.

Some models of BenQ’s monitors and projectors contain additional USB and DVI ports for connection to more devices such as a special headphone to assist the hearing impaired.

All BenQ monitors and projectors come with user manuals on compact discs which could be easily read by commercial software such as Adobe Reader via a connected computer system. These documents are also available on the BenQ’s web site (www.BenQ.com <http:// www.BenQ.com>). Other types of documents may be available upon requests.

BenQ’s customer service provides answers and assistance to all our customers through phone calls, facsimiles, e-mails,or web sites.
