You can configure the projector so it powers up automatically as soon as you plug it into a power
source. With this “Direct Power On” feature, you do not even need to press the [P] (Power) key. To
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
z 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 J Power On J
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).
z For details about configuring the Direct Power On setting, see “Direct Power On” under
“Option Settings 1 Main Menu” on page 34.

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 J 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] [S] [T] [W] [X]
Using the Password Feature
Note the following precautions whenever you use the password feature.
z The password feature protects against unauthorized use of the projector. Note that it is not an
anti-theft measure.
z 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.
z Remember that password operations are always performed using the remote controller, so you
should take care not to lose or misplace the remote controller.
z 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.
23
Keep a written record of your password!
You will not be able to use the projector if you forget its password. We strongly suggest that you keep
a written or other type of record of the password so you can look it up when necessary.

Cleaning the Projector
Periodically clean the projector exterior, lens, intake vents, exhaust vents, and airflow 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, do not apply undue force and take care to avoid
damaging the lens.
Cleaning Intake, Exhaust and Airflow 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!
z Continued use of the projector after dust has accumulated around the intake vents can cause
overheating of internal components and lead to malfunction.
z Certain operating conditions also can cause dirt and dust to accumulate around the
projector’s exhaust vents and airflow vents. If this happens, use the same procedure as that
described above to clean the exhaust vents and airflow vents.

Using Wired LAN to Control the Projector
(XJ-M145, XJ-M155, XJ-M245, XJ-M255)
The projector can be controlled by a computer or other external device by connecting the device to
the projector’s LAN port.
Supported External Devices
This projector supports all commands of PJLink Class1 (Version 1.00).
http://pjlink.jbmia.or.jp/english/
This projector is supported by the commands of the Crestron Electronics controller and software
(RoomView®).
http://www.crestron.com/
This projector is supported by AMX Device Discovery.
http://www.amx.com/
Information about the types of external devices that can be connected to the LAN port and control the
projector, as well as the control commands supported for each external device will be published on
the CASIO website below as such information becomes available.
http://www.casio.com/support/
Controlling the Projector from a Computer
When the projector is linked to a computer over a wired or wireless LAN connection, you can use the
computer’s Web browser to access a Wireless Presentation System control panel to control the
projector.
To establish a wired LAN connection between the projector and a computer
1.
Connect the LAN port of the projector to the LAN hub or other network devices
to which the computer is connected.
Projector
LAN hub
Computer
z In a configuration like the one in the illustration above, you should normally use straight type
LAN cables. If you are connecting the projector’s LAN port directly to the LAN port of a
computer, use a cross type LAN cable.
B
55
2.
Look up the projector’s IP address.
z Perform the following steps to look up the projector’s current IP address.
1. Press the [MENU] key to display the setup menu.
2. Use the [T] and [S] keys to select “Wired LAN settings” and then press the [ENTER] key.
3. Use the [T] and [S] keys to select “Wired LAN info” and then press the [ENTER] key.
3.
On the computer, start up a Web browser.
4.
In the Web browser address bar, input the projector’s IP address and then press
the [Enter] key.
z If the projectors current IP address is 192.168.100.10, for example, you would input:
“http://192.168.100.10”.
z This displays the top page of the projector’s System Admin page.
z For information about what you should do next, see “To control the projector using the
Wireless Presentation System control panel” (page 57).
Important!
Under initial default settings, the projector is configured to obtain its IP address automatically
from the DHCP server. This means that an IP address will be assigned automatically whenever
the projector is connected to a DHCP environment network.
Depending on the network environment being connected to, there may be cases where you will
need to assign a projector’s IP address manually. In such cases, you will need to configure
projector’s network settings.
If you are unable to display the projector’s System Admin page with your browser using the
above procedure, it may mean that there is some problem with your network settings. Refer to
the Wireless Function Guide on the CD-ROM that comes with the projector and establish a
wireless LAN connection between the projector and your computer. After configuring the
projector’s network settings, try performing the above procedure again. For details about the
projector’s network settings, see “To configure projector’s network settings and wireless LAN
connection settings” in the Wireless Function Guide.
