Q:
How do I connect my image source to the projector?
A:
See the following for your connection type:

Connecting to an HDMI Video Source

If your video source has an HDMI port, you can connect it to the projector using an optional HDMI cable. The HDMI connection provides the best image quality.
  1. Connect the HDMI cable to your video source's HDMI output port.


  2. Connect the other end to one of the projector's HDMI ports.


Note: If you connected a game console, it may take a few seconds for your image to appear when you switch to the game console's input source. To reduce the potential lag in response time to game commands, set your game console's output format to a progressive signal of 480p or 720p. See your game console documentation for instructions.

You can also select the Fast Image Processing setting to reduce lag time.

Note: When an audio/video source that meets the HDMI CEC standard is connected to the projector's HDMI port, you can use the projector's remote control to control certain features of the linked device by pressing the HDMI Link button on the remote and setting HDMI Link to On.

Connecting to a Component Video Source

If your video source has component video ports, you can connect it to the projector using an optional component video cable. Depending on your component ports, you may need to use an adapter cable along with a component video cable.
  1. Connect the component connectors to your video source's color-coded component video output ports, usually labeled Y, Pb, Pr or Y, Cb, Cr. If you are using an adapter, connect these connectors to your component video cable.
  2. Connect the other end to the projector's color-coded Component video input ports.


If your image colors appear incorrect, you may need to change the Input Signal setting in the projector's Extended menu.

Note: If you connected a game console, it may take a few seconds for your image to appear when you switch to the game console's input source. To reduce the potential lag in response time to game commands, set your game console's output format to a progressive signal of 480p or 720p. See your game console documentation for instructions.

You can also select the Fast Image Processing setting to reduce lag time.

Connecting to a Composite Video Source

If your video source has a composite video port, you can connect it to the projector using an optional RCA-style video or A/V cable.
  1. Connect the cable with the yellow connector to your video source's yellow video output port.
  2. Connect the other end to the projector's Video port.
