Using the EIKI LC-7000 Multimedia Projector in the Wesleyan
The Most Important Thing to Know
The light bulbs used by this Multimedia Projector are fragile and extremely
expensive to replace. To avoid accidental damage to the projector or bulb, read and follow the following checklist.
Setting Up and Turning on the Projector
- Position the projector cart next to the Instructor's Station (labeled LL09), facing the screen.
- Remove plastic cover from the projector.
- Turn on the computer at the instructor's station (if you haven't already). Don't turn on the projector yet.
- There are two cables with the projector; the power cable (marked with red tape) and the monitor cable (marked with green tape).
- Locate the monitor cable; on one end there is a white adaptor plug and on the other there is not. Take the end that does not have the adaptor plug and insert it into the port on the side of the projector (marked "computer in" and also marked with green tape).
Be sure you line up the plug properly and insert it right-side up. Tighten the screws that hold the plug into the port.
- Behind the computer, locate the cable leading from the computer's regular monitor to the computer itself. The plug leads to a port on the computer marked with green tape. Unscrew the pins holding the plug into the port and remove it.
- Insert the free end of the projector's monitor cable into the port from which you just removed the computer's regular monitor cable. Be sure it is inserted securely.
- Locate the projector's power cable (marked with red tape). Plug one end into the wall outlet next to the instructor's station (marked with red tape) and the other end into the power outlet on the back of the projector (marked with red tape).
- Switch the red toggle switch on the back of the projector to on (the "I" position).
- Press the round orange "Power" button on the top of the projector.
- Remove the lens cover from the front of the projector.
- You will see a blue screen with the letters "EIKI" in red. After a short countdown, the computer's screen will appear.
Using the Projector
- Images that ordinarily appear on the computer's monitor will now be projected onto the screen. You can use the computer's keyboard and mouse normally.
- To point out items on the screen, you can either point directly to the projection screen or use the mouse's arrow as a pointer.
- Zoom and focus controls are located on the remote control.
Turning Off the Projector
Please remember that others may be using the projector after you. Your diligence in returning things to their proper places is appreciated.
- When you are finished with the projector, you should hit the round orange "Power" button on the top of the projector.
- A message will appear on the screen prompting, "Power off?" Press the orange "Power" button a second time to turn off the screen. Note: Doing this does not turn off the projector completely.
- On the top of the projector, the red "Lamp" light will be lit but the green "Ready" light will bee off. At this point, do not turn the projector off, do not turn it back on, and do not unplug the power cord. YOU MUST WAIT UNTIL THE PROJECTOR LAMP COOLS.
- When the projector has cooled off, you will hear the fan stop and you will see the green "Ready" light come on (along with the red "Lamp" light). You may now do one of two things:
- Either hit the orange power button to turn the projector back on.
- Or flip the red power switch on the back of the projector to the off ("O") posision.
- Unplug both ends of both the power and cable cords and fold them up.
- Replace the regular monitor cable into its port on the back of the computer.
- Replace the projector's lens cover.
- Replace the plastic cover over the projector.
