Projector Quick Setup

Before using the projector, make sure you read the safety instructions in the online User's Guide.
Note: These illustrations show the EX5210/EX7210, but the instructions are the same for the EX3210 unless otherwise noted.

Connect the projector

Choose from the following connections. See the sections below or the online User's Guide for details.

Computer

USB Port

Connect the square end of a USB cable to the projector's USB TypeB (square) port. Connect the flat end of the cable to any USB port on your computer.
Windows® 2000 SP4 or later: After turning on the projector, follow the on-screen instructions to install the Epson USB Display software (EMP_UDSE.EXE; only on first connection). If the software screen does not display automatically, open My Computer or Computer, then double-click EPSON_PJ_UD.
Mac OS® X 10.5.1 or higher: After turning on the projector, the setup folder for USB Display appears in the Finder. Double-click USB Display Installer and follow the on-screen instructions to install the Epson USB Display software (only on first connection).

Note: If you have problems installing the USB Display software, make sure the USB Type B setting in the projector's Extended menu is set to USB Display. See the online User's Guide for instructions.

Monitor Port

Connect one end of a VGA cable to the projector's Computer port, and the other end to your computer's monitor port. If you are using a laptop, switch it to external display (see "Troubleshooting"). You can also connect an audio cable.

HDMI Port (EX5210/EX7210)

Connect one end of an HDMI cable to the projector's HDMI port and the other end to an HDMI port on your computer.

Video Device

Connect up to 4 (EX5210/EX7210) or 3 (EX3210) video devices and use the remote control to switch between them. (HDMI is not available for the EX3210.)

Camera, USB Device, or Epson Document Camera DC-06

Connect a digital camera, USB flash drive, USB storage device, or Epson document camera DC-06 to the projector's USB TypeA (flat) port.

If you connect a digital camera, USB flash drive, or USB storage device, you can use the projector's Slideshow feature. See the User's Guide for details.

Turn on your equipment

  • Turn on your computer or video source.
  • Plug in the projector. The power light on the projector turns orange.
  • Open the A/V Mute slide all the way.
  • Press the power button on the projector or remote control. The projector beeps, the power light flashes green, and then stays on.
    Note: To shut down the projector, press the power button twice, then unplug it. You don't have to wait for the projector to cool down.
  • The default language of the menu system is English. To select another language, press the Menu button on the remote control. Select Extended and press Enter. Select Language and press Enter. Select your language and press Enter. Press the Menu button to exit the menu system.

Adjust the image

  • If you don't see an image, press the Source Search button on the projector or remote control to select the image source.
    Note: If you still see a blank screen or have other display problems, see the troubleshooting tips on the right.
  • To raise the image, press the foot release button and lift the front of the projector. Release the button to lock the foot in position.
  • EX5210/7210: To reduce or enlarge the image, turn the zoom ring.
    EX3210: To reduce or enlarge the image, press the Tele (reduce) or Wide (enlarge) buttons on the projector.
  • Turn the focus ring to sharpen the image.
  • If your image looks stretched, you've placed the projector off to one side of the screen at an angle. Use the horizontal slider on the projector to correct it. Or place the projector directly in front of the center of the screen, facing the screen squarely.

Troubleshooting

If you see a blank screen or the No signal message after turning on your computer or video device, check the following:

  • Make sure the power light on the projector is green and not flashing, and the A/V Mute slide is open.
  • Press the Source Search button on the projector or the remote control to switch to the correct image source, if necessary.
  • If you're using a Windows laptop, press the function key on your keyboard that lets you display on an external monitor. It may be labeled CRT/LCD or have an monitor icon. You may have to hold down the Fn key while pressing it (such as Fn + F7). Wait a moment for the display to appear.
  • If you're using a Mac® laptop, open System Preferences and select Displays. Select the VGA Display or Color LCD option if necessary, then click the Arrange or Arrangement tab, and select the Mirror Displays check box.
