Troubleshooting
If a problem as mentioned below is encountered, take the actions indicated in the list. If the problem cannot be
solved, contact the Sharp authorized projector dealer or Service Center.
Problem
Cause and Solution
No devices are found or
communication is impossible.
• Check that the cable’s connector is firmly inserted in the LAN terminal of the device.
• Check that the cable is firmly inserted into a LAN port for a PC or a network device
such as a hub.
• Check that the LAN cable is a Category 5 cable.
• Check that the LAN cable is a cross-over cable when connecting the device to a PC
directly.
• Check that the LAN cable is a straight-through cable when connecting the device with
a network device such as a hub.
• Check that the power supply is turned on for the network device such as a hub
between the device and a PC.
• Check the following network settings for the device.
IP Address
Check that the IP address for the device is not duplicated on the network.
Subnet Mask
When the gateway setting for the projector is "0.0.0.0" (Not Used), or the gateway
setting for the device and the default gateway setting for the PC are the same:
- The subnet masks for the device and the PC should be the same.
- The IP address parts shown by the subnet mask for the device and the PC should
be the same.
(Example)
When the IP address is "192.168.150.2" and the subnet mask is "255.255.255.0" for
the device, the IP address for the PC should be "192.168.150.X" (X=3-254) and the
subnet mask should be "255.255.255.0".
Gateway
When the gateway setting for the device is "0.0.0.0" (Not Used), or the gateway
setting for the device and the default gateway setting for the PC are the same:
- The subnets for the device and the PC should be the same.
- The IP address parts shown by the subnet mask for the device and the PC should
be the same.
(Example)
When the IP address is "192.168.150.2" and the subnet mask is "255.255.255.0" for
the device, the IP address for the PC should be "192.168.150.X" (X=3-254) and the
subnet mask should be "255.255.255.0".
• Check if the "TCP/IP" protocol is operating correctly using the "PING" command and it
is communicating with the device.
1. Open a command prompt.
Click "START" ➔ "All Programs" ➔ "Accessories" ➔ "Command Prompt" in order.
2. After launching the command prompt enter a command "PING".
Entry example C:\>Ping XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX
"XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX" should be entered with an IP address to be connected to,
such as the device.
3. When connecting normally, the display will be as follows.
(The screen may be slightly different depending on the OS type).
<Example> when the IP address connected to is "192.168.150.1"
24
Disp_Manager_E_p24-28.p65
24
08.5.2, 2:47 PM
4. When a command cannot be sent, "Request time out" will be displayed.
Check the network setting again.
If communication can still not be established properly, contact your network
administrator.
5. To return to the Windows® screen, enter "exit" and then press the "Enter" key.
• When the device cannot be connected, even though the "PING" command is checked:
1. When there is a setting for an "Accept IP Address" in the device, set the IP address
of the PC to be connected.
2. When a security software is installed on the PC, or when a fire wall has been set
up for the network system, connection may not be possible.
Consult the system administrator in order to enable use of the UDP/TCP port set
as the search port, and TCP port set as the data port.
3. When neither of the above two items applies, change the settings for either the
search port or the data port (page 19). When the setting for the search port for the
Software is changed, the settings for the search port on the device must also be
changed accordingly.
The security alert window is
displayed.
• A security warning may be displayed when a search for a device is performed. To ensure
that the Software communicates via the search port (UDP), click "Unblock" and search
for the device again.
