Overview
Features
Q High Picture Quality
This single DMD DLP™ projector provides excellent picture quality, a high contrast ratio and very good
color uniformity.
Q Dynamic Performance and Rich Gray-Scale
With a 6-segment color wheel, the projector can attain refresh rates of up to 300 Hz which provides dynamic
performance and rich gray-scale without the 'color flicker' or 'rainbow effect' associated with other single-
DMD DLP™ projectors.
Q Sealed Optical Engine
The optical engine uses a high-quality lens for maximizing optical performance. The sealed optical engine
prevents light leakage and any dust from entering the engine, which could cause annoying 'spots' in the
projected image.
Q Fixed CAT optical lens for robust contrast ratio 2500:1
The projector is added an aperture in lens to get the optimization of the contrast ratio and brightness.
Q Low-Noise Operation
The projector's unique cooling system design prevents annoying fan noise, and is rated at less than 29 dB at
normal mode and 26 dB at Economic mode.
Q Wide Variety of Inputs
The projector can support a wide variety of video formats. The component inputs are used to connect the
projector to HDTV receivers and DVD players. They use RCA connectors to minimize signal degradation
that may be caused by installations that have longer cables.
Q HDTV Ready
The projector is compatible with 480i, 480P, 576i, 576p, 1080i and 720P formats.
Q De-interlacing with 3:2 Pull-Down
Using BenQ's proprietary de-interlacing technology, the projector provides exceptional scaling and film-to-
video (3:2 pull-down) conversion for the most artifact-free images possible.
Q PIP/POP function
The Picture-In-Picture (PIP) and Picture-On-Picture (POP) functions allow you to display two inputs on
the screen at the same time.
Q Video Memory
This projector allows users to store up to three different configurations in its video memories to optimize
the image for different types of signal.
Q Multilingual OSD (On-Screen Display) menus

Positioning your projector
Choosing a location
Your projector is designed to be installed in one of four possible installation locations:
1. Floor in front of screen;
2. Ceiling in front of screen;
3. Floor at rear of screen; or
4. Ceiling at rear of screen.
Your room layout or personal preference will dictate which installation location you select. Take into
consideration the size and position of your screen, the location of a suitable power outlet, as well as the location
and distance between the projector and the rest of your equipment.
I. Floor front:
Select this location with the projector placed near the
floor in front of the screen. This is the most common
way to position the projector for quick setup and
portability.
II. Ceiling front:
Select this location with the projector suspended from
the ceiling in front of the screen.
Purchase the BenQ Projector Ceiling Mounting Kit
from your dealer to mount your projector on the
ceiling.
Set Ceiling Front in the Setup > Mirror menu after
you turn the projector on.

Obtaining a preferred projected image size
The distance from the projector lens to the screen, the zoom setting, and the video format each factors in the
projected image size. BenQ has provided separate tables of dimensions for both 16:9 and 4:3 screen ratios to
assist you in determining the ideal location for your projector.
1. Determine the aspect ratio of your screen, (16:9 or 4:3)?
2. Select the Screen Size you desire from the 16:9 ratio screen dimension table or 4:3 ratio screen dimension
table below, according to what screen type you have. Install the projector at a distance from the screen
corresponding to between the Min. and Max. Projection Distance values in the table.
3. Decide the exact height of your projector.
For example, if you are using a 16:9 screen with 80 inches diagonal, you are suggested to place your projector
within a range between 2.34m to 3.18m from the screen. The ideal height of your projector lens center will be
level with the bottom or top side of the screen.

Care of the projector
Your projector needs little maintenance. The only thing you have to do on a regular basis is keep the lens clean.
Never remove any parts of the projector except the lamp. Contact your dealer if other parts needs replacing.
Cleaning the lens
Clean the lens whenever you notice dirt or dust on the surface. Before you attempt to clean the lens, turn the
projector off, unplug the power cable, and leave it several minutes to cool completely.
1. Use a canister of compressed air to remove dust. (Available from building hardware or photographic
suppliers.)
2. If there is stubborn dirt or smudge marks, use a proper photographic lens brush or moisten a clean soft
lens cloth with lens cleaner to gently wipe the lens surface.
Never touch the lens with your finger or rub the lens with abrasive materials. Even paper towels can
damage the lens coating. Only ever use a proper photographic lens brush, cloth, and cleaning solution.
Do not attempt to clean the lens whilst the projector is switched on or is still hot from previous use.
Cleaning the projector case
Before you attempt to clean the case, turn the projector off, unplug the power cable, and leave it several minutes
to cool completely.
1. To remove dirt or dust, wipe the case with a soft, dry, lint-free cloth.
2. To remove stubborn dirt or stains, moisten a soft cloth with water and a neutral detergent. Then wipe the
case.
Never use wax, alcohol, benzene, thinner or other chemical detergents. These can damage the case.
Cleaning and replacing the dust filter
It is necessary to clean the dust filter periodically. You can go to Setup> Dust Filter Hours to check how long the
filter has been used. If the filter is not cleaned, it can become clogged with dust and prevent proper ventilation.
This can cause overheating and a malfunction of the projector.
In case you fail to clean the filter regularly, the projector
will shut down automatically once the filter is seriously
clogged with dust and cause over-heating inside of the
projector. You will see the message pictured to the right
before the power off.
Please install a new filter.
The projector will turn off in 1 min.
To clean the filter,
1. Turn the project off and wait until the fans stop running.
2. Disconnect the projector from any cables.
3. Draw the dust filter grill from the front-right side of the projector.
