Follow the guidelines in this chapter for: ■ Positioning the projector ■ Turning the projector on and selecting the image source ■ Troubleshooting display problems ■ Adjusting the image ■ Turning off the projector 13 Montreal User's Guide.book Page 14 Tuesday, April 19, 2005 11:27 AM

Positioning the Projector If the projector 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. 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. note You can mount the projector on the ceiling, or place it behind a translucent screen for rear projection. See page 81 for details.

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 anything that could block the vents under the projector. ■ Make sure the projector is within 10 feet of a grounded electrical outlet or extension cord.

Montreal User's Guide.book Page 15 Tuesday, April 19, 2005 11:27 AM 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. If you place the projector below screen level, you’ll have to tilt it up by extending the front adjustable foot. This causes the image to become “keystone” shaped, but you can correct the distortion by pressing the buttons on the projector. See page 22 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 81. 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 page 11.

Turn the zoom ring on the projector to reduce or enlarge the image. Focus Zoom If the image still isn’t large enough, you may need to move the projector farther away from the screen. You can also use the E-Zoom buttons on the remote control to zoom in on a portion of the image. See page 31 for instructions. Adjusting the Image Shape In most cases, you can maintain a square or rectangular image by placing the projector directly in front of the center of the screen with the base of the lens level with the bottom of the screen. Even if the projector is slightly tilted (within a range of 30° up or down), the projector has an automatic keystone correction function that detects and corrects vertical keystone distortion.
