26 Using the projector
Securing the projector
Using a security cable lock
The projector has to be installed in a safe place to prevent theft. Otherwise, purchase a lock, such as the
Kensington lock, to secure the projector. You can locate a Kensington lock slot on the projector. See item
23 on page 9 for details.
A Kensington security cable lock is usually a combination of key(s) and the lock. Refer to the lock's
documentation for finding out how to use it.
Utilizing the password function
For security purposes and to help prevent unauthorized use, the projector includes an option for setting
up password security. The password can be set through the On-Screen Display (OSD) menu. Once the
password is set and this function is selected, the projector is password-protected. Users who do not
know the correct password can not use the projector.
You will be inconvenienced if you activate the password functionality and subsequently forget the password.
Print out this manual (if necessary) and write the password you used in this manual, and keep the
manual in a safe place for later recall.
Setting a password
Once a password has been set and the Power On Lock is activated, the projector cannot be used unless the
correct password is entered every time the projector is started.

Advanced menu is highlighted.

If the function is used for the first time, enter the default password (1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1) of the projector by
pressing the arrow key six times.
Once the password is set, the OSD menu returns to the Security Settings page.
