Pico projectors perform the same functions as standard projectors in a compact, handheld size. With a pico projector, there is no need to mount large projection units, as you can carry your projector right in your pocket. You can complete the projector's installation and set-up process yourself -- there is no need to call in extra technical assistance or support.

  1. 1

    Locate the video output on your computer or other video device and determine if you have a VGA or HDMI output. VGA is a square-shaped port with 15 pins, and an HDMI port is a thin rectangular opening.

  2. 2

    Insert the VGA cable or HDMI cable into the port on your video source. If you are using a VGA cable, secure the two screws on either side of the cable to lock the connection in place.

  3. 3

    Insert the opposite side of the cable into the input on the pico projector. Plug the power cord into the DC port on the projector if the battery is low, and point the projector at the screen or other desired display surface.

  4. 4

    Turn on the projector and press the "Source" button to toggle through the video inputs. Stop when the image from the source appears on the screen or display surface.
