Digital Projector

The Apeman LC350 digital projector allows you to display content in large format. It is great for outdoor family movie nights and presentations. We recommend projecting onto light-colored surfaces such as indoor walls, outdoor walls, and projector screens in low light situations. Devices like laptops, smartphones, tablets, and USB drives can connect to this projector.

Those devices can send content including movies, videos, pictures, slideshows, YouTube, Netflix, and more. Due to rights restrictions, content from some premium video sites such as Netflix may not work from smartphones and tablets. They should work from laptops, though.

Setup Instructions

Step 1: Setting Up First, find a safe space to project onto. Depending on your space, you may need an extension cord or surge protector (not supplied in this kit). Take off the included lens cap.

Step 2: Powering on Plug the power cord into the right side of the projector and into a power outlet. A red light on the top of the projector means the projector is ready to be turned on.

Turn the projector on by holding the power button on the top of the device for about 3 seconds, or press the power button on the included remote control.

The red light should change to blue, meaning the projector is turning on. The whirring noise is normal. This is a fan keeping the unit cool so it does not overheat and shut down suddenly.

Step 3 Adjusting the display Adjust the location, focus, keystone, and height of the projector until the image is clear. You should locate the projector at least 3-4 feet away from the target, and no more than 12 feet away.

Focus in or out depending on your distance away from the target and the image clarity using the larger dial on top. Adjust the keystone (angle) of the image using the smaller, inner dial on top. Adjust the height of the image by screwing the nut on the bottom of the projector in or out. You may increase the height of the projector further by placing it on top of books or other items. Make sure that the projector is secure in its position.

Step 4: Connecting your device Physically connect your device to the proejctor using any of the provided cables.

The projector does not automatically switch to plugged in devices. Use the Source button on the remote control or the Home button on the top of the unit to view connection options. Use the arrow keys to select the input for your device and then press OK n the remote control or the circle button on the top of the projector.

If you use them, the Apple Lightning to HDMI adapter and Android MHL adapter cables must also be plugged in to power outlets. Use the included USB power adapter to plug in the MHL cable or the Apple Lightning charging cable. See if your device works with MHL at mhltech.org/devices.aspx.

You may want to use the remote to adjust the volume or plug in headphones. Enjoy your content.

Connecting to USB drives and TF cards

After changing your source to USB drive or TF card, the projector will take you to a screen to choose between movie, music, photo, and text. Use the arrow keys and OK button on the remote or the arrow keys and the circle button on top of the projector to select which media type. The projector will access the USB drive or TF card, which you can browse to find your content.
The projector can display the following file formats:

  • Movie/video: mp4, avi, wmv
  • Music: mp3, wma, ogg, acc, flac, wav
  • Photos: jpeg, bmp, png
  • Documents: txt NOTE: PowerPoint presentation format is not supported directly from USB drives and TF cards. Use a laptop computer or other device instead.

Step 5: Turning off When you’re done, please remember to turn off the device using either the power button on the top or the power button on the remote control. Replace the cap on the lens to keep it clean for future use. If the lens cap will not attach, turn the focus dial a bit to the right to extend the lens.
