DLP projectors use an all-digital chip with millions of microscopic mirrors to display enlarged versions of images and video. The DLP technology is used in high-definition TV displays as well as projectors. Although DLP technology is extremely advanced, the set-up process for a DLP projector is straightforward. You can complete the installation and set-up yourself without having to rely on technical service or IT support.

  1. 1

    Position the projector in front of the screen or wall you will use to display the image.

  2. 2

    Insert one end of the HDMI or VGA cable into the video output on your computer or other video source. If you are using VGA, be sure to secure the two screws on either side of the connection end of the cable.

  3. 3

    Run the other side of the cable to the "VGA" or "HDMI" port on your DLP projector's input panel. Plug the projector's power cord into a nearby electrical socket.

    Turn on your video source. The projector should detect the video feed and immediately begin displaying the image from your source. If not, press the "Source" or "Input" button on the projector's control panel until the image is displayed.
