Some users may experience viewing flickering in projected images when using the ELP DC-06 Document Camera with a compatible Epson projector.
This issue may only affect ELP DC-06 version V12H321001 and only under certain conditions, e.g. under fluorescent light, and depends on the DC-06 commercial power frequency setting. If you are experiencing this issue, please follow the guidance below.
In order to resolve the issue, please update the firmware of the ELP DC-06 using Downloader version 1.10. Check the commercial power frequency setting is correct for the environment in which you are using the ELP DC-06. You can update the firmware for either commercial power frequency (50Hz or 60Hz).
The following equipment is needed to complete the firmware update:
ELP DC-06 Document Camera
Compatible EPSON EB-8 series projector or a later compatible model

Neither EPSON nor its affiliates will take any responsibility for any damages that result from a firmware update. Your use of this document and any related firmware file(s) is at your own risk. Any resulting repair will NOT be covered by your warranty.
Power on the computer.
Make sure that EPLDC06 Button Manager is installed on the computer as this will be required for the firmware update procedure.
