Connecting Your Laptop using a VGA Cable

  1. Turn on the TV the power button on the TV.
  2. Make sure the TV is set to PC IN (If the projector is on a different input, press the Input button on the side of the TV to bring up the Input menu, then press the Input button until PC IN input is selected).
  3. Boot up your laptop COMPLETELY before connecting the VGA cable from the TV. Then plug in the cable.
    • If your computer requires you to use an adapter to project (for example, all MacBook Pros with VGA), first plug the cable into your adapter, then plug the adapter into your computer.
  4. Send the image to the TV:
    • On Windows computers, press and hold the Windows key and P key. Select the Duplicate to send the image to the TV.
    • On a Mac, click the Apple icon > System Preferences > Displays > Arrangement > Mirror Displays.
  5. Volume is controlled first by the volume of your computer, then by the Volume + / - buttons on the side of the TV.
  6. When you're done with the TV, please turn it off. Hit the power button on the side of the TV to turn it off.

Connecting Your Laptop using an HDMI Cable

  1. Turn on the TV the power button on the TV.
  2. Make sure the TV is set to HDMI 1 (If the projector is on a different input, press the Input button on the side of the TV to bring up the Input menu, then press the Input button until HDMI 1 input is selected).
  3. Boot up your laptop COMPLETELY before connecting the HDMI cable from the equipment rack. Then plug in the cable.
    • If your computer requires you to use an adapter to project, first plug the cable into your adapter, then plug the adapter into your computer.
  4. Send the image to the TV:
    • On Windows computers, press and hold the Windows key and P key. Select the Duplicate to send the image to the TV.
    • On a Mac, click the Apple icon > System Preferences > Displays > Arrangement > Mirror Displays.
  5. Volume is controlled via the Volume + / - buttons on the side of the TV.
  6. When you're done with the TV, please turn it off. Hit the power button on the side of the TV to turn it off.

Leaving the TV running for extended periods while it's not in use significantly shortens the life of the TV. To turn off the TV, push the power button on its side.
