Support Projectors PowerLite Series Epson PowerLite 1705c

Can I connect a computer to the Type B (square)  USB port on my product?

  • You can connect a Windows XP or Windows 2000 (SP4) computer to the projector's Type B  USB port and project your computer's display.

    The first time you connect a computer to the projector's USB port, software from the projector installs on your computer.

    Do the following:
    1. Open the A/V Mute slide (lens cover).

    2. Plug one end of the power cable into the projector, and the other end into an electrical outlet.

      The Power light turns orange.
    3. Press the red  Power button on the remote control or on top of the projector.

      The projector beeps once and the Power light flashes green as the projector warms up, then an image begins to appear. When the Power light stops flashing and remains green, the projector is ready for use.

      Warning: Never look into the lens when the lamp is on. This can damage your eyes, and is especially dangerous for children.
    4. Press the EasyMP button on the remote control to select EasyMP as the source.
    5. If you see a New Hardware Wizard screen saying your computer has found a plug-and-play monitor; click Cancel.
    6. Turn on your computer.
    7. Locate the USB cable that came with your projector.
    8. Connect the square end of the cable to the projector's Type B (square)  USB port.
    9. Connect the flat end of the cable to any available USB port on your notebook or desktop computer.
    10. Follow the instructions on your computer screen to install the Epson USB Display software. If you see a “Digital Signature Warning', select Continue (Windows XP) or Yes (Windows 2000). You will need to install the software only the first time you connect the projector to your computer.
    11. Note: You must have administrative rights to install the Epson USB Display software.

      After the software has been installed, you see your computer's desktop displayed by the projector. “Easy MP” appears briefly in the upper right corner of the image. You may need to reboot your computer for an image to display.
