4 Please handle with care: both projector & bulb are fragile. The projector becomes quite HOT during extended use.Ensure the surface it rests on is not sensitive to heat.Avoid placing objects in front of the lens.Allow the projector to COOL after your show: by turning it off and allowing it to sit for a few minutes with the fan running.
5 1. Setup Projector Remove projector from case. Place gently on a firm, well-supported surface.Note: The projector need not be placed a great distance from the surface it will project onto.

13 Problem Solution Troubleshooting After the projector is turned on, I receive the message in the upper right-hand corner, “S-Video-No Input” or “Video-No Input.”SolutionEnsure you are in “Input 1” mode.
14 Troubleshooting Problem Solution After the projector is turned on and on “Input 1”, I receive the message in the upper right-hand corner, “Input 1-No Input.”SolutionFirst, make sure that you have firmly screwed in the projector cable to both the projector and laptop. If this does not work, the notebook may not be on dual-display mode. To avoid this problem, have the cable attached to both the projector and computer and the projector on before turning on the computer. However, you can toggle between display modes on your notebook if you don’t want to turn everything off. You need to locate the image that has two “monitors” on the keyboard (or LCD/CRT), on one of the “F” keys - each laptop brand is different. While holding the Function button (a.k.a. Fn, lower-left corner), press the monitor button to cycle through display options.
15 TroubleshootingProblemA portion of the left side of my presentation is missing during projection.SolutionThis happens on occasion, but is usually rectified by using the auto adjust button (one on the remote and one on the unit itself).
