Ceiling Mounted Projector


The first six steps of the following instructions should be all you need for normal operation of the new projector: The color, contrast and brightness have been adjusted to work with the club's laptop. The focus, zoom, lens shift and keystone have been optimized for the current projector and screen installation. Recommend you leave the TV off and use only the projector for normal workshop presentations.


1. Your computer should be on and connected to the VGA cable prior to turning on the projector. For maximum clarity/sharpness set your laptop resolution to 1024 x 768.


2. Reset/On/All-Off switch should be in On position (bottom center of the remote)


3. On button – the green indicator lamp comes on, projector fan starts and after a brief warm-up period the Sanyo logo should appear on the screen.


4. After startup, the projector should automatically scan the inputs and locate your computer. If it goes to an all blue screen and indicates no input signal, check to make sure your computer is connected and set for an external display (one of your function keys should turn the external display function on/off)


5. Input button - the projector will scan again to locate your computer


6. STAND-BY button – press the button twice to turn the projector off


The following optional controls are preset for normal operations.


7. Shutter button - Close and open the built-in shutter. Note, the projector will shut down automatically if the shutter remains closed longer than 30 minutes. Once the shut down cycle begins you will not be able to restart the projector until cooling fan stops running.
