Support Projectors PowerLite Series Epson PowerLite 1815p

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 (square)  USB port and project your computer's display. A USB 2.0 connection provides better picture quality and response than USB 1.1.

    The first time you connect a computer to the projector's USB port, software from the projector is installed 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 appears. 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. If you are prompted to enter a password, hold down the Num button on the remote control and use the numeric keypad to enter the four digit password. See Starting the Projector with a Password.
    5. Press the EasyMP button on the remote control to select EasyMP as the source.
    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.

      Messages appear as the projector is recognized and the software installation begins.
    10. Follow the instructions on your computer screen to install the Epson USB Display software. If you see a Digital Signature Warning, select Continue. You will need to install the software the first time you connect the projector.
    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. You can switch the projector to other image sources using the Source buttons on the remote control, and then switch back to your desktop display by pressing EasyMP.

      When you're done projecting from your computer, disconnect the USB cable.
