How to Connect My PC to an Epson 3 LCD Projector

Save

According to Epson, Epson projectors accounted for 28 percent of all projectors sold in the United States in 2010 and 22 percent of all those sold in the world, making Epson the number one projector brand in the world. Many Epson projectors use 3LCD technology, in which three separate chips are utilized to process each of the three primary colors, respectively. According to Epson, this allows lamps of a lower wattage to be used and reduces energy consumption. Epson projectors can be connected to a PC simply via USB cable or VGA computer cable.

Connect via USB

  • Plug the projector in. The power cable has a plastic end with two round holes on it. This plugs into the back of the projector, on the far left side, in a vertical position.

  • Turn the projector on. This is done by pressing the large square power button, which is centered on the right side of the control panel when viewing it from behind.

  • Connect the included USB cable to the USB port on the back of the projector. Connect the other end to your PC.

  • Click "Agree" when a screen pops up asking you if you want to install a driver file for the projector.

Connect via VGA Computer Cable

  • Turn the projector and your PC on.

  • Plug the VGA computer cable into the component video port on the projector. This port is blue colored and on the top right of the connections area at the back of the projector.

  • Plug the other end of the VGA cable into your computer's video-out or monitor port. This port is wider than many of the other ones on your computer and may have a symbol near it featuring two vertical lines surrounding an oval.

  • Switch the video monitor on your computer to "external display". This is usually done through the Video or Display options.

Tips & Warnings

  • If using a Macintosh computer, you may have to connect through the VGA cable instead of the USB.
