Step1: connect the signal cable
To begin, connect a VGA cable with two identical ends to the port marked with the VGA sign on both the laptop and the device. (If used for video projection, utilize a Video or S-Video connection to connect the projector and appropriate signal sources.)
Insert the plug firmly into the slot and tighten the screw to secure the plug to the machine. Grip the plug (not the cord) and pull it out; do not bend the plug up and down.
Step 2: Connect the power supply
If there is a power loss during the projection, the projector's power cord plug and socket must fit properly and not be too loose, or the equipment will be damaged. At AC voltages ranging from 100 to 240 volts, low-cost projectors can work well and reliably. The light bulb and the power board will be destroyed if the voltage is not stable. Turning off the power abruptly will reduce the life of the lamp inside; instead, turn on and off the device as directed by the manufacturer (User manual attached to the machine). An uninterruptible power supply can be used to power the projector (UPS).
Step 3: Turn the device on
Open the projector lamp cover (if applicable), turn on the machine's rear power switch (if present), and then press the Power button (1 time). If you have recently turned off the projector, you must wait for the fan in the machine to stop spinning before turning it back on.
Step 4: Save the image to your projector
Check the following steps if the signal is still not output after connecting the computer (or other signal sources) to the projector:
* Inspect the cable connection as well as the projector: Choose the correct signal power port.
- AUTO is used in several low-cost projectors.
- To use a TOSHIBA or SONY projector, press INPUT (on projector)
- NEC, ACER, and OPTOMA projectors: SOURCE (on projector)
PANASONIC projector: Press INPUT SELECT (on projector)
* Verify that the signal port on the laptop (or other signal sources) is open.
- + TOSHIBA, HP, SHARP laptop: [Fn] + [F5]
- + SONY, IBM laptop: [Fn] + [F7]
- + PANASONIC, NEC laptop: [Fn] + [F3]
- + DELL, EPSON laptop: [Fn] + [F8]
- + FUJITSU laptop: [Fn] + [F10]
- + Other laptops: [Fn] + Screen icon key
- * If the signal cannot be produced, we proceed as follows:
- + Select Desktop/Graphics Option/Output to/Desktop from the context menu.
- + Alternatively, connect and power on the projector before powering on the laptop.
Step 5: Utilize the projector's controls.
Depending on the position and distance between the projector and the screen, we use the command buttons to fine-tune and adjust the material to make it simpler to read.
The TILT button is used to adjust the height of the light.
- Adjust the Zoom button to zoom in and out of the image.
- Adjust Focus button: To modify the sharpness of the image (Some lines use Auto Focus).
- To adjust the lights so that the material is visible, use the Zoom and Focus buttons simultaneously.
If the projected image on the screen appears trapezoidal, have you checked that the projector is perpendicular to the screen? Place the mini projector in the projection direction, perpendicular to the projection screen (wall). If the projection on the screen (wall) has a trapezoidal shape, move the KEYSTONE up and down (some AUTO SETUP, or AUTO KEYSTONE models)
Step 6: Finish
You can turn off the projector by pressing the POWER button (2 times). Wait for the projector's fan to completely stop before disconnecting the power cord from a safe source (avoid the risk of damage and shorten lamp life).
