Using the LitePro 210 with the Powerbook 5300C
- Cabling from the powerbook to the Litepro
involves three cables. The first two are in the outer compartment of the
Litepro carrying case together
with the Litepro instruction manual. The last, a Mac Powerbook video adapter,
is in the outer pouch of the powerbook carrying case. The carrying case also
contains a power cord for the Litepro.
- The first cable is the cable wizard, a
10 foot cable at one end plugging into the Litepro, and at the
other terminating in a 5 inch diameter disc with 4 selectable
inputs. Choose ``Mac'' on the cable wizard disc and use the
3 rowed video input. This is on the left as one reads the ''InFocus''
label in the middle of the disc.
- The second cable is about 1 foot long and has a 3 rowed
VGA type connector at one end with a 2 rowed Mac type video connector
at the other. Connect the 3-rowed VGA connector to the cable wizard.
- The third cable is a Powerbook video adapter which runs from
the Mac end of the second cable to the powerbook.
- To protect the powerbook video circuitry,
always turn the projector on after connecting the wires but
before starting the powerbook. Similarly turn the
powerbook off before disconnecting or powering down the projector .
- If you'd like the powerbook screen to show the same thing as
the projector, turn video mirroring on. This is done from the control strip
using the icon with two monitors (rectangles) on it. You may have to doubleclick
on the control strip icon (lower left) to open the strip. There is also a
control strip control panel.
- Best is to allow the projector to warmup for 10 minutes
in standby mode. The on switch is in the right front of the projector,
while other controls are under a door on the top of the left side.
To get the projector out of standby mode, press the
standby button firmly and hold for about 2 seconds. It will take a few
seconds for the projection lamp to start projecting again. You may also
need to press the computer (source) button.
- The Litepro is focused by turning the projection lens at
the front. This is also where the removable lens cap snaps on.
- There is a leveling wheel at the lower right back of the unit.
The knob in back next to the light tube is a keystone adjustment, to
match the top and bottom widths of images.
- Next to the keystone adjustment on back is a quick release
elevator foot; just tilt the projector to the angle you desire, and press
the quick-release button on back to set the projector for that angle.
