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.
