You can either project the screen onto a table or onto a wall. Projecting onto a table lets you take full advantage of the touchscreen functions, while projecting onto a wall is ideal for viewing multimedia content, for example, watching movies. You can also change the orientation of the projection mode in case of vertically displayed apps.
When the temperature of the projector exceeds the normal operating range, a warning message is displayed in the upper-right corner of the Home screen . The projector will turn off automatically when it gets too hot.
To navigate the touchscreen
- Navigate the projected screen using your finger.
The device automatically pauses the projection if it is moved or lifted during operation.
To select where to project the Start-up animation
- Find and tap Settings > Display > Start-up animation.
- Select an option.
To project onto a wall
- Place the device directly against the wall in the correct orientation as shown in the illustration. Ensure there are no obstructions above the device or within the projection area.
- To increase or decrease the projection area, reposition the device further from or closer to the wall, as shown in the illustration. The projected image size varies according to the distance from the wall:
- 0 cm: 23 inches
- Approximately 9 cm: 40 inches
- Approximately 18 cm: 60 inches
