Connecting Your Laptop using the VGA Cable

  1. If the TV is not on, turn it on using its power button, labelled Power, along the left side of the TV.
  2. Make sure that the TV is on the VGA input. Use the Input button on the left side of the TV to cycle through the source list until you hit 6. VGA, then leave that input selected, and a few seconds later the TV will switch to VGA.
  3. Boot up your laptop COMPLETELY before connecting the VGA cable hanging 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 projector.
    • On a Mac, click the Apple icon > System Preferences > Displays > Arrangement > Mirror Displays.
  5. For audio, plug the 3/4-inch "aux" cord into your laptop's headphone jack. Volume is controlled first by the output volume of your laptop, and then by the Volume +/- buttons on TV.
  6. When you're done with the TV, please turn it off. Use the Power button on the TV to turn it off.

Connecting Your Laptop using the HDMI Cable

  1. If the TV is not on, turn it on using its power button, labelled Power, along the left side of the TV.
  2. Make sure that the TV is on the HDMI1 input. Use the Input button on the left side of the TV to cycle through the source list until you hit 3. HDMI1, then leave that input selected, and a few seconds later the TV will switch to HDMI1.
  3. Boot up your laptop COMPLETELY before connecting the HDMI cable hanging from the TV. 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 projector.
    • On a Mac, click the Apple icon > System Preferences > Displays > Arrangement > Mirror Displays.
  5. Volume is controlled by the Volume +/- buttons on TV
    1. On Windows computers, right-click the Speaker icon in your taskbar and select Playback devices from the popup menu. In the window that pops up, if there isn't a check under the E505 input, right-click on it, then select Set as Default Device.
    2. On a Mac, click the Apple icon > System Preferences > Sound > Output tab > E505.
  6. When you're done with the TV, please turn it off. Use the Power button on 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, use its power button, labelled Power, along the left side of the TV.
