Support Projectors PowerLite Series Epson PowerLite 1815p

My remote control does not work. What should I do?

  • There are several things that can cause your remote control to not function properly.
    • The remote control's batteries may not be installed correctly or may be low on power. To change the batteries, see Replacing the Batteries.
    • Make sure you are within about 20 feet (6 meters) of the projector and within range of the projector's front or back sensor (approximately 30° to the left or right and 15° above or below).
    • Dim the room lights and turn off any fluorescent lights. Make sure the projector is not in direct sunlight. Strong lighting, especially fluorescent lights, may affect the projector's infrared receivers. Also, turn off any nearby equipment that emits infrared energy, such as a radiant room heater. If necessary, use the Remote Receiver setting to disable the projector's front or back sensor if it continues to pick up interference. See Customizing Projector Features.
    • Make sure the Remote Receiver setting isn't disabling both of the projector's sensors. See Customizing Projector Features.
    • If any buttons are held down for longer than 30 seconds, the remote enters sleep mode. Release any button that is being held to wake the remote.
