Important Operating Considerations for Safety
• Place the projector in a horizontal position no greater than 15 degrees
off axis.
• Locate the projector in a well-ventilated area without any obstructions
to intake or exhaust vents. Do not place the projector on a tablecloth or
other soft covering that may block the vents.
• Locate the projector at least 4' (1.2 m) away from any heating or cooling
vents.
• Use only InFocus-approved ceiling mounts.
• Use only the power cord provided. A surge-protected power strip is
recommended.
• Refer to this manual for proper startup and shutdown procedures.
• In the unlikely event of the lamp rupturing, discard any edible items
placed in the surrounding area and thoroughly clean the area along all
sides of the projector. Wash hands after cleaning the area and handling
the ruptured lamp. This product has a lamp which contains a very
small amount of mercury. Dispose of it as required by local, state or fed-
eral ordinances and regulations. For more information see
www.eiae.org.
Follow these instructions to help ensure image quality and lamp life over
the life of the projector. Failure to follow these instructions may affect the
warranty. For complete details of the warranty, see the Warranty section at
the end of this user's guide.

the supplied computer cable will not connect to your computer, purchase
the appropriate adapter from your Apple reseller.
Connect the black power cable to the connector on the back of the projector
and to your electrical outlet.
NOTE: Always use the power cable that shipped with the projector.
Optional computer connections
To control your computer’s mouse using the projector’s remote control, con-
nect the USB cable to the USB connector on the projector and on your com-
puter. USB drivers must be installed to use the USB feature. For more
information, see page 11. If your computer has a PS/2 connector, connect an
optional PS/2 cable to the PS/2 connector on the projector and on your com-
puter. The USB input is for Computer 2, the PS/2 input is for Computer 3.

Using the remote control
The remote uses two (2) provided AAA batteries. They are easily installed
by sliding the cover off the remote’s back, aligning the + and - ends of the
batteries, sliding them into place, and then replacing the cover.
To operate, point the remote at the projection screen or at the projector (not
at the computer). The range of optimum operation is about 30 feet (9.14m).
To use the laser pointer, press and hold the Laser button. The laser turns off
when the button is released, or times out after two (2) minutes of continu-
ous operation.
WARNING: Do not look into the laser beam emitted from the top of the
remote control.
Left and right remote mouse buttons are used to mimic the actions of the
left/right mouse buttons on your computer. Mouse cursor movement is
managed via the remote’s Cursor control. Connect a USB or PS/2 cable to
the projector and the computer to use these buttons and control your com-
puter’s mouse. When you do this for the first time, the Add New Hardware
wizard may appear. See page 10 for details on loading the correct USB driv-
ers.
Press the remote’s Menu button to open the projector’s menu system. Use
the arrow buttons to navigate, and the Select button to select features and
adjust values in the menus. See page 29 for more info on the menus.
The remote also has a power button to turn the projector on and off (see
page 16 for shutdown info), volume and mute buttons to control the sound,
a backlight button to light the remote’s buttons in the dark, and video and
computer buttons to switch between sources.
Two presentation-specific features are also provided. Use the blank button
to display a blank screen instead of the current slide (you can choose which
color is displayed, see page 34); use the effect button to invoke a user-defin-
able action, such as freeze or zoom (see page 35 to learn to program this but-
ton).
If you are displaying presentations in Microsoft
®
PowerPoint
®
, you can use
the remote’s mouse buttons to navigate through your presentation while in
Slide Show mode. To configure PowerPoint for this, choose Options from
the PowerPoint Tools menu, click the View Tab, de-select the “Popup Menu
on Right Mouse Click” option in the Slide Show section, then click OK.
Then, when you’re in PowerPoint’s Slide Show mode, a left click advances
to the next slide and a right click returns to the previous slide (other Power-
Point modes are not affected).
Troubleshooting the remote
• Make sure the batteries are installed in the proper orientation and are
not dead. The LED at the top of the remote lights when any button is
pressed when the battery power is adequate.
• Make sure you’re pointing the remote at the projector, not the com-
puter, and are within the remote range of 30 feet (9.14m).
• If you are trying to control your computer’s mouse, make sure a mouse
cable is connected. If using a USB cable, make sure the correct drivers
are installed.

Limited Warranty
Subject to the Limitations, Exclusions and Disclaimers hereof, InFocus Cor-
poration (“InFocus”) warrants that the Projector, Lamps and Accessories
(hereinafter collectively or individually referred to as “Product” as appro-
priate) purchased from InFocus, an InFocus distributor, or an InFocus
reseller will conform to InFocus’ specifications and be free from defects in
material or workmanship for the respective Limited Warranty period pro-
vided below. InFocus does not warrant that the Product will meet the spe-
cific requirements of the end-user customer.
If the Product while subject to this Limited Warranty, is defective in material
or workmanship during the warranty period, then InFocus, at its option,
will REPAIR or REPLACE the Product.
All exchanged parts and Products replaced under this Limited Warranty
will become property of InFocus. InFocus’ sole obligation is to supply (or
pay for) all labor necessary to repair the Product found to be defective
within the Limited Warranty period and to repair or replace defective parts
with new parts or, at the option of InFocus, serviceable used parts that are
equivalent or superior to new parts performance. Limited Warranty periods
are as follows:
• Projector Product Limited Warranty Period (Excluding Lamps): Two
(2) years from date of purchase.
• Lamp Product Limited Warranty Periods: From the date of Projector
Product purchase, the original installed lamp shall have a 90-day or 500
hours usage Limited Warranty Period, whichever comes first, and
replacement Lamps purchased at the time of Projector Product pur-
chase will have a 500 hours usage Limited Warranty period.
• Accessory Product Limited Warranty Period: one (1) year from date of
purchase.
WARRANTY LIMITATION AND EXCLUSION
THIS WARRANTY SETS FORTH INFOCUS’ MAXIMUM LIABILITY FOR
ITS PRODUCT. THIS WARRANTY EXTENDS ONLY TO PRODUCTS PUR-
CHASED FROM INFOCUS OR AN INFOCUS AUTHORIZED RESELLER.
InFocus shall have no further obligation under the foregoing Limited War-
ranty if the Product has been damaged due to abuse, misuse, neglect, smoke
exposure (cigarette or otherwise), accident, unusual physical or electrical
stress, unauthorized modifications (including use of an unauthorized
mount), tampering, alterations, or service other than by InFocus or its
authorized agents, causes other than from ordinary use or failure to prop-
erly use the Product in the application for which said Product was intended.
This Limited Warranty excludes Product cleaning, repair, or replacement of
plastics due to cosmetic damage and damage as a result of normal wear.
Product repair outside of the terms of the Limited Warranty will be on a
time and materials basis. Prolonged Product “demonstration” causes

and excludes normal wear. The Lamp Product Limited Warranty excludes
expected lamp degradation.

going Limited Warranty. Please refer to the appropriate Remanufactured

To Be Eligible For Limited Warranty Coverage
