Connecting Audio Equipment You can connect an external audio device, such as a CD player or tape deck, to the Ensemble HD system. Use an RCA-style stereo cable and connect your equipments audio output port to the AUDIO 1 port on the back of the AV controller, as shown below:

To record from the AV controller to your tape deck, connect the audio input port on your tape deck to the 2CH OUT port, shown above. If youre not using a tape deck, you can use this port to connect the Ensemble HD system to an external amplifier or other home audio system.

Note The 2CH OUT port is intended for use as a pass-through port. You cannot use the Ensemble HD system to control the volume of the audio signal transmitted through this port.

Setting Up the Remote Control After connecting a new component, you can continue to use its original remote control. However, it may be more convenient to set up the Ensemble HD remote control to work with it. That way, you only need to use one remote control.

You enable the Ensemble HD remote control to recognize the new component by entering a setup code as described on page 37. This creates the appropriate commands for your device in one of the remote control menus listed below:

Cable box CABLE

Satellite receiver SAT

High-definition DVD player HD

Digital video recorder (for example, TiVo) DVR

Video game console AUX

Video cassette recorder VIDEO

AUDIO 1 IN port2CH OUT port

37

Note The menus for the listed components remain blank until you enter the setup code for the component. The remote control also has several other menus (DVD, RADIO, AUDIO, and PROJ). These are used to operate the built-in components of the Ensemble HD system.

If you have a type of component not listed above, first enter its setup code as described in the next section. Then see Customizing the Remote Control Menu on page 39 for additional instructions.

Entering the Setup Code for Your Component

You enable the remote control to recognize the new component by entering a setup code from the tables starting on page 85. You may have to try out several codes before finding the right one for your component. Once the correct code is entered, the remote control will automatically create the appropriate commands in the menu for the new device.

If you cant find the correct code, you can teach the remote control how to operate your new component one function at a time, but this may take much longer (see page 72).

1 Turn on the component you want to set up. Each time you enter a code, the remote control will try to turn off your component by sending a power-off command. You will know that you have entered the correct code when the component turns off.

2 Press and hold both the MAIN and ENT (Enter) buttons for approximately three seconds to enter the SETUP menu.

Note You have 30 seconds to perform a step while you are in the SETUP menu. If you dont press a button, the remote control returns to the MAIN menu.

3 Select the P-PRO (Pre-Programmed) option on the LCD screen.

If you dont see your device on the screen, press the PAGE or (page up or down) button to view more options. Use the u or d button to highlight the desired option so it flashes, then press the SEL (Select) button.

Note Some of the device names (DVD, RADIO, AUDIO, and PROJ) are already used by the Ensemble HD system, and you cannot select them.

5 Use the u or d button to select the type of device youve connected, then press the SEL (Select) button. (The names in this step correspond to the categories of devices found in the code tables on page 36).

6 Point the remote control at the component, then enter the first three-digit code number from the code tables starting on page 87. The code numbers are listed by categories of devices, then by brand. After you enter a three-digit code, look at the component to see if it has turned off. (You do not have to press SEL or ENT to enter the code.)

Continue to enter code numbers until the component turns off.

Note If the component fails to turn off after you have entered all the code numbers listed for your brand, you can scan through the other brands in the table using the UP and DOWN options on the LCD screen (there is a chance that your component was actually manufactured by another brand). However, most of the code tables are large, so it is usually faster to use the learning method described on page 72.

7 When the component turns off, save the code number you entered by selecting the SAVE option on the LCD screen.

8 Press the MAIN button twice to exit the SETUP menu.

9 Test the Ensemble HD remote control to make sure it has all the functions you need for your component. When you select your components menu, you should see all the functions needed to operate it. If any commands are missing, you can copy them from the components original remote control (see page 72).

Note Refer to the manual that came with your component for instructions on using the commands to operate it.

Problem Solution

You dont see a picture. Make sure the projector is turned on. Press the MAIN button on the remote control, then press the ON button. Keep the remote control pointed at the screen for several seconds after you press the button to ensure that the projector turns on. If youre sourcing video from an external component, make sure that component is turned on. The lamp may need to be replaced. See Checking the Projector Lamp on page 58. Make sure the video cable is connected to the HDMI OUT port on the back of the AV controller. If youve connected an external component, check for loose or disconnected cables on the back of the component and the AV controller. If youve connected an external component, check the Source Assign screen. Make sure the correct label is assigned to the video port to which the component is connected (see page 34).

You see light or dark pixels on the screen.

The projectors display is more than 99.99% accurate. However, some individual pixels (dots) may appear light or dark due to the inherent limitations of LCD manufacturing technology.

You notice smudges or dirt in the image.

You may need to clean the screen (see page 53) or the projector lens (see page 53).

The image sometimes gets scrambled or broken up.

Use a soft, lint-free cloth to clean the disk. Wipe gently in a straight line from the center of the disc toward the outside. If necessary, moisten the cloth with water, mild detergent, or rubbing alcohol. Avoid using abrasives, solvents, or other cleansers.

You see scrolling horizontal bars in the picture (hum bars) when watching satellite or cable TV, or you hear a buzzing sound.

Connect a ground loop isolator to the satellite or CATV cable close to where it connects to your equipment. You can purchase this module from electronics retailers. The module filters out interference caused by your cable or satellite systems outdoor ground connection. Or you can use a coaxial surge protector. WARNING: Never disconnect the cables ground connection or disable the grounding pins on your power cords. These exist for the protection of both you and your equipment.

Problem Solution

The image is too soft or out of focus.

If you cleaned the lens, you may have accidentally changed the position of the focus ring. See Adjusting the Image Position and Focus on page 56. Adjust the sharpness of the image using the Sharpness settings (see Adjusting the Picture on page 42). Be careful not to over-adjust the sharpness, or you may get banding in some images.

The image isnt positioned correctly on the screen.

If the image isnt at the right height, you may need to adjust how far the screen comes down. See Adjusting the Screen Length on page 54. If you cleaned the lens, you may have accidentally changed the lens position or the position of the zoom ring. See Adjusting the Image Position and Focus on page 56.

The image is cut off, squeezed in one direction, or stretched out.

Press the ASP (Aspect) button on the remote control to select a different aspect ratio setting. See Adjusting the Aspect Ratio on page 43. If youve connected a second DVD player as an external component, make sure its set to output a widescreen 16:9 image.

There are black bars at the top and bottom of the image.

Press the ASP (Aspect) button on the remote control to select a different aspect ratio setting. See Adjusting the Aspect Ratio on page 43. If youre watching a movie released in a theatrical widescreen format (such as 1.85:1 or 2.35:1), you must display it with black bars at the top and bottom if you want to see the whole image. Thats because high-definition TVs and home entertainment systems use the slightly narrower 16:9 (1.78:1) aspect ratio.

The image is too dark. Make sure youve selected the best Color Mode for your viewing environment. See Adjusting the Color Mode on page 42. After setting the Color Mode, you may need to fine-tune the brightness and contrast. See Adjusting the Picture Quality on page 45. If the projector lamp is old, you may need to replace it. See Checking the Projector Lamp on page 58.

The colors dont look right. Make sure youve selected the best Color Mode for your viewing environment. See Adjusting the Color Mode on page 42. After setting the Color Mode, you may need to fine-tune the color settings. See Adjusting the Picture Quality on page 45. If youve changed several settings and the picture still doesnt look right, you can return all the settings to their original state. However, this option should be used only if necessary. See Restoring Factory Defaults on page 51.

Sound Problems

Problem Solution

There is no sound. Check the power switches on the back of the subwoofer. Make sure the PWR ON MODE switch is in the AUTO position and the MASTER POWER switch is turned on. Press the MUTE button on the remote control to make sure the sound wasnt muted or turned off. Unplug any headphones that may be plugged into the AV controller. Try increasing the volume. Depending on your audio source, its possible that no sound may be heard at the low end of the +dB range. If youve connected an external audio device such as an MP3 player, make sure its volume control is adjusted to allow sound output. If youve connected an external audio device such as an MP3 player or tape deck, be sure to select the correct audio port: Select the AUDIO option on the remote control, then select either AUD1 (for the Audio 1 port in back of the AV controller) or AUD2 (for the Audio 2 port in front). If youve connected an external component, check the Source Assign screen. Make sure the selected Audio Input matches the port to which the audio is connected (see page 34). If youve connected an external video component using an HDMI cable, make sure HDMI audio is enabled in the components setup menu. If your component doesnt support HDMI audio, you may need to connect a coaxial or optical cable to carry the audio signal (see page 33). Check for loose or disconnected cables on the back of the subwoofer and AV controller.

The high and low parts of the sound spectrum seem weak.

Make sure Midnight Mode isnt turned on. See Using Midnight Mode on page 48.

Bass tones arent loud enough. Use the Bass setting to increase the bass. See Adjusting the Sound on page 46. Use the Test Tones function to increase the output of the subwoofer. See Using Test Tones to Adjust the Sound on page 47. If you rearranged your room or moved your subwoofer to a different location, try switching the PHASE control on the back of the subwoofer.

Problems Using the DVD Player

Problems Using the Radio

Problem Solution

The DVD/CD tray doesnt open or close.

Make sure a flash drive isnt inserted into the USB slot. The flash drive takes precedence over the operation of the DVD player. When a flash drive is inserted, the DVD player cannot be used and a disc cannot be inserted or ejected.

You want to view chapter information for the DVD youre watching, or check the amount of time remaining.

Press the INFO button on the remote control.

The display shows the amount of time remaining instead of the elapsed time for a DVD chapter, CD track, or MP3 audio file.

Press the INFO button on the remote control to select the desired display format, or to turn off the on-screen display.

You want to return to the main menu of the DVD youre watching to select its contents.

Press the MENU or GUIDE button to display the main menu of a DVD. (The MENU button displays the Ensemble HD setup menu if the MAIN menu is displayed on the remote control. If a different menu is displayed, such as CABLE or SAT, it displays the menu system for that component.)

Problem Solution

You get poor radio reception. The antennas included with the AV controller are sufficient to receive strong, local stations. To receive weaker stations, connect an antenna designed for stronger reception, such an outdoor antenna. See your antennas manual or the Ensemble HD Installation Guide to make connections for proper grounding protection.

You installed an outdoor antenna and properly grounded it, but you get audio hum or buzz as a result.

Connect a ground loop isolator to the coaxial antenna cable close to where it connects to the AV controller. You can purchase this module from electronics retailers. The module filters out interference caused by the outdoor ground connection. Or you can use a coaxial surge protector. WARNING: Never disconnect the antennas ground connection or disable the grounding pins on your power cords. These exist for the projection of both you and your equipment.

Using Remote Control Punch-Through

The Ensemble HD remote control is pre-programmed to let you operate various devices, each from its own menu. For example, if youve connected a high-definition DVD player, you can operate it from the HD menu; or you can operate a satellite receiver from the SAT menu. However, you may want to be able to operate your high-definition DVD player from the MAIN menu so you can also access the Ensemble HD setup menu, and adjust the picture or sound at the same time, for example. To do this, you create a punch through. This lets you use the remote control to operate certain functions of one device, while you have the menu screen open for another device. (You can punch commands through any menu, not just the MAIN menu.)

Note The volume control is automatically punched through to your home theater system from every device.

Follow these steps to set up a punch-through:

1 Enter Setup mode by pressing and holding both the MAIN and ENT buttons for three seconds. The top of the screen displays SETUP.

Note You have 30 seconds to complete each step. After that, the remote control returns to normal operation.

2 Select the PUNCH option. (You may have to press PAGE or to see it.)

81

3 Select the button group that contains the type of function you want to punch through:

CH: Channel up/down and number buttons (09 and Enter)

PLAY: Play, pause, stop, rewind, and fast-forward

VOD (Video On Demand): Guide, Menu, Info, ESC, arrow buttons (u d l r), and Select

POWER: Power on and off

The bottom of the screen displays PUNCH TO.

4 Select the menu from which you want to be able to operate the device thats not normally controlled by that menu, or press the OFF button to select the MAIN menu. For example, to operate your satellite receiver from the MAIN menu, press the OFF button.

The bottom of the screen displays PUNCH FROM.

5 Select the device that you want to be able to operatefor example, SAT for a satellite receiver.

The bottom of the screen displays SAVED.

6 Repeat steps 3 through 5 to set up additional punch-throughs, or press the MAIN button twice to return to normal operation.

Using an RF Base Station You can use the Ensemble HD remote control to operate components such as a cable box or satellite receiver, even if theyre hidden inside a cabinet. You can do this by using an optional RF base station (radio-frequency receiver) to relay the remote controls commands. An RF base station lets you send commands to components that are not located near the AV controller, or are located inside a closed space such as a cabinet. The base station receives RF commands from the remote control and relays them to each of your components, wherever theyre located. (This is possible because the Ensemble HD remote control emits both IR and RF signals.)

Note The AV controller included with your system can be used in a closed space even without a base station. Thats because the sensor that receives commands for it is located at the top of the screen.

The Ensemble HD remote control is compatible with RF base stations made by Universal Remote Control (www.UniversalRemote.com). Both addressable and non-addressable versions are available. Addressable ones let you avoid interference from other RF remote controls being used nearby. See the next section for instructions on setting up an addressable base station. (If you have a non-addressable base station, you probably wont need to change any of the RF settings.)

Setting Up an Addressable Base Station

If you have an addressable base station, there are several RF settings you may need to adjust on the remote control. At a minimum, you should set the ID # to match the one assigned to your base station.

1 Press and hold both the MAIN and ENT buttons for approximately three seconds. The top of the screen displays SETUP.

82

Note You have 30 seconds to complete each step. After that, the remote control returns to normal operation.

2 Select the RF option. You see this screen:

3 Select the setting you want to adjust:

IR/RF to cause the remote control to emit IR signals only, RF signals only, or IR and RF signals at the same time. If a component receives IR signals directly from the remote control and from the base station at the same time, the signals may interfere with each other, so you should set the remote control to use only RF signals with that component. (You can select the component in step 4.)

ID # to select the receiver ID # of your addressable base station. Select an address other than 0 (zero) to prevent interference from other RF remote controls in the vicinity.

EMITT to route commands through specific emitters plugged into the base station. (The ID # must be set to a non-zero address to select this option.)

BLAST to turn the base stations IR blaster on or off. You may want to turn it off if the blasters high- power LED saturates or overpowers the sensors of some AV components. (The ID # must be set to a non-zero address to select this option.)

4 On the next screen, select whether you want the setting to apply to the menu options for all 10 devices listed on the MAIN menu of the remote control (select ALL) or just the ones for a specific device (select DEVIC).

If you select DEVIC (Device), the next screen lets you select the device you want the setting to apply to. Select from DVD, CABLE, SAT, etc. (Use the PAGE or button to display all the devices.)

5 On the next screen, finish adjusting the selected setting:

For the IR/RF setting, select IR&RF, IR, or RF.

For the ID # setting, select UP or DOWN to change the ID #.

For the EMITT setting, select ALL to route the signal through all the emitters. Or select UP or DOWN to change the Line Output number (this refers to the jack where you plugged in the emitter for a specific component).

For the BLAST setting, select ON or OFF.

6 Select SAVE to save your setting.

7 Select EXIT to return to the SETUP menu, or press the MAIN button twice to return to normal operation.

Remote Control Codes

The program codes provided in this chapter let you set up your remote control to work with devices made by other companies. See Connecting and Using Other Components on page 31 for instructions on using such devices with your system.

If you need to recall the code number you selected for a device, see Recalling Programmed Codes on page 86.

Using the Code Tables The code tables in this chapter (starting on page 87) let you quickly program your remote control to work with different brands of equipment you may own. See Setting Up the Remote Control on page 36 for instructions.

The codes are divided into categories (TV, cable, DVD, etc.). Each category may include different types of components. For example, the DVD category includes TV/DVD combo units. In each section, the code numbers are listed by brand (Sony, Panasonic, etc.). Some brands have more than one code for you to try.

Epson America, Inc. Limited Warranty

Epson Ensemble HD Home Theater System

What Is Covered: Epson America, Inc. (Epson) warrants to the original retail purchaser of the Epson Ensemble Home Theater System (which includes the projector, screen, speakers, sub-woofer, AV controller, projector cradle, projector mount, and wiring package) covered by this limited warranty statement that the System, if purchased new and operated only in the United States or Canada, will be free from defects in workmanship and materials for a period of two (2) years from the date of original purchase. This limited warranty applies only to the System and not to the projector lamp, which carries a ninety (90) day warranty from the date of original purchase.

What Epson Will Do to Correct Problems: Should any element of the System or the lamp prove defective during the limited warranty period, please call the Epson ConnectionSM at (800) 637-7661 + PIN or (562) 276-4394 in the U.S. and (905) 709-3839 in Canada for warranty instructions and return authorization. When you call, please be prepared to provide the service technician with the product model and the product serial number (located on the back of the screen weight bar), along with proof of the date of original purchase. The service technician will provide telephone diagnostics to determine whether your unit needs service, and detailed instructions if it is determined that service is needed. When Epson authorizes an exchange for the defective unit, Epson will ship a replacement product to you, freight prepaid, so long as you use an address in Canada or the U.S. (excluding Puerto Rico and U.S. Possessions). Shipments to other locations will be made freight collect. You are responsible for securely packaging the defective unit and returning it to Epson within ten (10) working days of receipt of the replacement. Epson requires a debit or a credit card number to secure the cost of the replacement product in the event that you fail to return the defective one. When service involves the exchange of a unit or its parts, the items replaced become the property of Epson. The exchanged product or part may be new or refurbished to the Epson standard of quality, and, at Epsons option, the replacement may be another model of like kind and quality. Epsons liability for replacement of the covered product will not exceed the original retail selling price of the covered product. The new items assume the remaining warranty period of the original product. If Epson chooses to replace a defective product or part, a replacement product or part will be shipped to you at no charge, but it is your responsibility to pay any labor costs for installation and removal.

125

What This Warranty Does Not Cover: This warranty covers only normal use of the product. Twenty-four-hour- per-day or other excessive continual use is not considered normal use. This warranty does not cover consumables (e.g., fuses or filters) other than lamps. This warranty is not transferable. Epson is not responsible for warranty service should the Epson label or logo or the rating label or serial number be removed. Epson is not responsible for warranty service should the product fail to be properly maintained or fail to function properly as a result of misuse, abuse, improper installation, neglect, improper shipping, damage caused by disasters such as fire, flood, and lightning, improper electrical current, software problems, interaction with non-Epson products, or service other than by an Epson Authorized Servicer. If a claimed defect cannot be identified or reproduced in service, you will be held responsible for costs incurred.

THE WARRANTY AND REMEDY PROVIDED ABOVE ARE EXCLUSIVE AND IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. SOME LAWS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES. IF THESE LAWS APPLY, THEN ALL EXPRESS AND IMPLIED WARRANTIES ARE LIMITED TO THE WARRANTY PERIOD IDENTIFIED ABOVE. UNLESS STATED HEREIN, ANY STATEMENTS OR REPRESENTATIONS MADE BY ANY OTHER PERSON OR FIRM ARE VOID. IN THE EVENT THE REMEDIES ABOVE FAIL, EPSONS ENTIRE LIABILITY SHALL BE LIMITED TO A REFUND OF THE PRICE PAID FOR THE EPSON PRODUCT COVERED BY THIS LIMITED WARRANTY. EXCEPT AS PROVIDED IN THIS WRITTEN WARRANTY, NEITHER EPSON AMERICA, INC. NOR ITS AFFILIATES SHALL BE LIABLE FOR ANY LOSS, INCONVENIENCE, OR DAMAGE, INCLUDING DIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, RESULTING FROM THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE EPSON PRODUCT, WHETHER RESULTING FROM BREACH OF WARRANTY OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY.

In Canada, warranties include both warranties and conditions.

Some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts and some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations and exclusions may not apply to you. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights, which vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.
