enable Direct Power On, display the Setup Menu, and then change the “Direct Power On” setting to
“On”.
Important!
When you have Direct Power On enabled, do not leave the projector plugged into an electrical
outlet while it is turned off. If you do, there is the chance that it (and the light source unit) might
turn on automatically when power is restored after being cut off by a power outage, tripping of a
breaker, etc.
Note
 Direct Power On causes the projector to turn on automatically as soon as it is plugged into a
power outlet. This greatly reduces the amount of time it takes until you are ready to start
projecting. Note, however, that the actual startup sequence (Standby State  Power On 
Projection Starts) that the projector performs is the same, regardless of whether Direct Power
On is enabled or disabled. The only difference is what triggers the sequence (plugging in or
pressing the [P] (Power) key). For details about the startup sequence that the projector
performs when you plug it into a power source, see “To turn on the projector” in the separate
“User’s Guide (Basic Operations)”.
 For details about configuring the Direct Power On setting, see “Direct Power On” under
“Option Settings 1 Main Menu” on page 32.

Password Protecting the Projector
The password feature lets you keep unauthorized individuals from using the projector. You can specify
whether password input is required whenever you turn on the projector, and you can specify and
change the password as required. Use the setup menu “Option Settings 1  Power On Password”
setting to configure power on password settings.
Inputting a Password
The password of your projector is not really a “word” made up of letters, but rather a sequence of
remote controller key inputs. The following is the 8-key sequence that represents the initial factory
default password.
[INPUT] [AUTO] [BLANK] [FREEZE] [] [] [] []
Using the Password Feature
Note the following precautions whenever you use the password feature.
 The password feature protects against unauthorized use of the projector. Note that it is not an
anti-theft measure.
 You will need to enter the initial factory default password the first time you use the projector after
turning on the password feature. Change the initial factory default password to a different one of
your choice as soon as possible after turning on the password feature.
 Remember that password operations are always performed using the remote controller, so you
should take care not to lose or misplace the remote controller.
 Also note that you will not be able to input the password if the remote controller batteries are dead.
Replace the remote control batteries as soon as possible after it starts to go low.
If you forget your password...
You will not be able to use the projector if you forget the password for some reason. If you forget the
password, you will need to bring the following two items to your CASIO distributor to have the
password cleared. Note that you will be charged to have the password cleared.
1. Personal identification (original or copy of your driver’s license, employee I.D., etc.)
2. Projector unit
Note that your CASIO distributor will not be able to clear the password of your projector unless you
bring both of the items listed above.
Also, keep the projector’s warranty in a safe place.
Important!
Having your password cleared using the procedure described above will return all of the settings
of your projector, except for the Light Time, to their initial factory defaults.
21

Cleaning the Projector
Periodically clean the projector exterior, lens, intake vents, and exhaust vents on a regular basis.
Important!
Before cleaning the projector, be sure to unplug it from the power outlet and make sure it is
cooled down completely.
Cleaning the Projector Exterior
Wipe the exterior of the projector with a soft cloth that has been moistened in a weak solution of water
and a mild neutral detergent. Be sure to wring all excess moisture from the cloth before wiping.
Never use benzene, alcohol, thinner, or any other volatile agent for cleaning.
Cleaning the Lens
Carefully wipe the lens with a commercially available lens cloth or optical lens paper, like those for
eyeglasses or camera lenses. When cleaning the lens, be very careful to avoid scratching it.
Cleaning Intake and Exhaust Vents
Dust and dirt tend to collect around the intake vents. Because of this, you should use a vacuum
cleaner to clean away accumulated dust and dirt periodically as shown below.
Important!
 Continued use of the projector after dust has accumulated around the intake vents can cause
overheating of internal components and lead to malfunction.
 Certain operating conditions also can cause dirt and dust to accumulate around the
projector’s exhaust vents on the front. If this happens, use the same procedure as that
described above to clean the exhaust vents.
