Transferring Settings from a Computer

After saving projector settings to a computer, you can transfer them to another projector of the same model.
Your computer must be running one of the following operating systems:
  • Windows Vista
  • Windows 7
  • Windows 8.x
  • Windows 10
  • OS X 10.7.x
  • OS X 10.8.x
  • OS X 10.9.x
  • OS X 10.10.x
  • OS X 10.11.x
  • macOS 10.12.x
  • macOS 10.13.x
  • macOS 10.14.x

Do not adjust image settings on a projector until after you transfer settings to it. Otherwise, you may have to repeat your adjustments.

  1. Turn off the projector using the power switch.
  2. Connect a USB cable to your projector's Service port.

  3. Connect the other end to any available USB port on your computer.
  4. Press and hold the Menu button on the control panel or remote control as you turn on the power switch.

  5. When the On/Standby and Status lights are blue, and the Laser and Temp lights are orange, release the Menu button.
    The projector shows up as a removable disk on your computer.
  6. Copy the pjconfdata.bin file from your computer to the removable disk.
    Note: Do not copy any other files to the removable disk.
  7. Once the file has copied, do one of the following:
    • Windows: Open the My Computer, Computer, Windows Explorer, or File Explorer utility. Right-click the name of your projector (listed as a removable disk) and select Eject.
    • Mac: Drag the removable disk icon for your projector from the desktop into the trash.
    All the lights start flashing to indicate that the projector's settings are being updated. When the lights stop flashing, the On/Standby light turns blue and the projector enters standby mode.
    Do not turn off the power switch or unplug the power cord while the lights are flashing. This could damage the projector.
    Note: If the projector does not enter standby mode and the lights continue flashing, see the link below for a solution.
