That's the universal symbol for enter, leftover from the typewrighter days of carriage return, moving the carriage down and to the left.

You need to spend some time with your manual, just to familiarize yourself with projector basics. On the vast majority of projectors, you just push the power button twice to shut it down.

The other thing you need to do is look at Epson's placement guidelines. If you overheat it, you'll go through bulbs much, much faster. Bulbs are expensive!

lol can't help it.

To this day and age there is someone still hasn't used a computer or keyboard? The Dell keyboard which I'm typing on now has this symbol together with the word Enter.

My grandmother knows that symbol is the enter key.

Apple and Windows 8.x are doing their best to banish the keyboard to the cornfield.

Apparently they are having some success.

This made me smile. Probably a bad design choice by Epson, but very understandable. :D
