Projection Operations
Auto Input Source Selection
When you turn on the projector, it checks the status of each input source (whether or not
the input source is sending a signal) in the sequence shown below. It automatically selects
the first input source it finds that is sending an input signal, and projects the applicable
image.
RGB terminal input
VIDEO terminal input
S-VIDEO terminal input
(RGB/Component)
(VIDEO)
(S-VIDEO)
If the RGB input terminal is connected to a computer and the S-VIDEO input terminal is
connected to a video deck and signals are being supplied by both, for example, the projector
automatically selects RGB input when it is turned on. The currently selected input source
name is shown in the upper right corner of the projection screen.
z If the projector does not find any input signal, the message “No signal input” appears in
place of the input source name.
z Whether the displayed input source name shows [RGB] or [Component] depends on the
current “Input Settings J RGB Input” (page 42) setting that is configured on the
projector’s setup menu.
z Note that the projector does not select the input source automatically when “Off” is
selected for the “Option Settings1 J Auto Input Detect” (page 45) setting on the setup
menu.

when the image is the size you want.
z The zoom indicator will disappear from the image automatically if you do not perform
any further key operation for a certain amount of time.
To focus the image
1. Hold down [FOCUS S] or [FOCUS
T] to adjust the focus.
z This causes the focus indicator, which indicates the current focus setting, to appear on
the image.
2. When the focus
is the way you want, release the [FOCUS] key.
z The focus indicator will disappear from the image automatically if you do not perform
any further key operation for a certain amount of time.
z You can also focus automatically by pressing the [AF/AK] key. For more information, see
“Auto Focus and Auto Keystone Correction (AF/AK)” (page 9).
z The focus and zoom indicators may not appear under certain conditions (when the
startup logo is displayed, when the image and audio are muted, during password input,
etc.). Though the indicators do not appear, focus and zoom adjustment can still be
performed by pressing the applicable keys.

Projection Operations
Auto Adjustment of an RGB Image
When the input source is RGB (computer), the projector automatically adjusts vertical and
horizontal positioning, frequency, and phase whenever it detects an RGB signal (following input
source selection, power up, etc.). You can also execute an automatic adjustment operation by
pressing the [AUTO] key.
z You can turn off auto adjustment (page 46) when you want to disable auto adjustment
and maintain manual settings.
z The projected image may become distorted while an auto adjustment operation is in
progress.
z If an image is unclear following the auto adjustment operation, you can use the menu to
adjust items manually. For details, see “Image Adjustment” on page 31.
Keystone Correction (AF/AK, KEYSTONE)
When the projector is at an angle to the screen it is projecting on, the projected image may
have different length left and right edges, or top and bottom edges. This phenomenon is
called, “keystoning”. This projector comes with functions for automatic as well as manual
keystone correction, which provides a regularly shaped projected image. The following shows
the allowable angle that the projector can be positioned relative to the screen.

z The angles shown in the above illustration are subject to the following conditions.
z Projection of an image from a computer (Resolution: 1024 × 768; Vertical Frequency: 60Hz)
z Resize Image To Fit: On
z Actual correction ranges are affected by the type of signal being projected, zoom, the
“Resize Image To Fit” setting, the aspect ratio setting, and other factors.
z Keystone correction can cause the corrected image to be smaller than the original
(uncorrected) image, or it can cause distortion of the image. If the projected image
becomes difficult to view, try moving the screen and/or projector so they are oriented
close to the configuration shown under “Setting Up the Projector” in the “User’s Guide
(Basic Operations)”.
Auto Focus and Auto Keystone Correction (AF/AK)
The [AF/AK] key can be configured to perform one of the three Auto Focus (AF) and auto
keystone correction operations described below. For information about configuring the [AF/AK]
key operation, see “Option Settings2 J AF/AK Mode” on page 59.
AF/AK Mode (initial default):Pressing the [AF/AK] key performs both keystone correction and
Auto Focus.
Continuous AF/AK Mode: Pressing the [AF/AK] key projects an alignment chart that comes
in handy when the projection distance is relatively far or when
projecting at an angle. With the Continuous AF/AK mode, the
projector continually performs Auto Focus as the projector is
moved. For details about using the Continuous AF/AK mode, see
“Performing Auto Focus and Auto Keystone Correction while
Continuous AF/AK is Enabled”, below.
AF Mode:
Pressing the [AF/AK] key again performs Auto Focus only.
Performing Auto Focus and Auto Keystone Correction while
Continuous AF/AK is Enabled
Perform the following steps while [Continuous AF/AK] is selected for “Option Settings2 J AF/
AK Mode” (page 59) on the setup menu.
1. Press
the [AF/AK] key.
z This enters the pre-focus mode, which projects an alignment chart like the one shown
below.
z The size of the alignment chart depends on screen and projector setup conditions.

Projection Operations
2. Adjust the angle and position of the projector as
required so the
projected chart fits within the screen area.
3. Press
the [AF/AK] key again.
z This performs auto keystone correction.
Auto Adjustment at Power On
While [Continuous AF/AK] is selected for “Option Settings2 J Power On AF/AK Mode” (page
60) on the setup menu, turning on the projector automatically enters the pre-focus mode and
projects the alignment chart. Perform the procedure starting from step 2 under “Performing
Auto Focus and Auto Keystone Correction while Continuous AF/AK is Enabled” above.
z When [AF] is selected for “Option Settings2 J AF/AK Mode” on the setup menu, only
Auto Focus is performed when the [AF/AK] key is pressed.
z If the message “Outside of Auto Focus range. Relocate the projector to change the
distance from the screen, and then press the AF/AK button.” appears, try moving the
screen and/or projector so the distance between them is within the auto focus range
(approximately 0.8 to 4 meters). Note that the actual auto focus range will depend on
screen and projector setup conditions, and other factors. When the distance is outside the
auto focus range, use manual focus.
z Note that certain screen and projector conditions, and other environmental factor may
make it impossible to perform auto keystone correction and Auto Focus correctly. In this
case, adjust settings manually.
z Proper Auto keystone correction and Auto Focus are not possible if the projector is not
on a level surface. Make sure you set up the projector correctly, in accordance with the
information under “Getting Ready” in the “User’s Guide (Basic Operations)”.
Manual Keystone Correction
Manual keystone correction can be used to correct for both vertical and horizontal keystoning.
To use manual keystone correction
1. Press
the [KEYSTONE] key.
z This causes the keystone correction screen to appear on the projected image.
2. Use the [S] and [T]
keys to select either “Vertical Keystone Correction”
or “Horizontal Keystone Correction”.

Projection Operations
3. Use the [W] and [X] keys
to correct for keystoning.
z Each press of [W] or [X] shifts the indicator on the currently selected bar left or right.
z Repeat steps 2 and 3 to perform keystone correction for the other direction, if you
want.
4. After the settings are the way
you want, press the [ESC] key or the
[KEYSTONE] key.
z This causes the keystone correction screen to disappear.
Auto Focus (AF)
At times, the projector may not focus properly when you press the [AF/AK] key. This can be
caused by local environmental factors, etc. If this happens, focus the image manually or try
performing the AF operation again. If you often need to adjust focus manually, perform the
steps under “To adjust Auto Focus”, below.
Note that the allowable distance for Auto Focus is less than that for manual focus.
To adjust Auto Focus
1. Position the projector and screen so they
and then press the [
are about 1.5 meters apart,
] (power) key to turn on the projector.
z Position the projector so it is pointed straight at the screen.
2. Press
the [AF/AK] key.
3. Press
the [KEYSTONE] key and then use the screen that appears to
change the vertical and horizontal keystone correction values to zero.
z This step is not necessary if these values are already zero.
4. Use the [FOCUS] keys
to adjust focus manually.
5. While the focus
indicator is being projected, hold down the [ENTER] key
for about five seconds.
z After about five seconds, the message “Focus operation successful.” or “Focus operation
failed.” is projected.
6. If the
focus operation fails, repeat the above procedure from step 2.

Projection Operations
Auto Keystone Correction
Certain operational environments and other factors can make it impossible to achieve sufficient
accuracy when performing keystone correction.
If an image appears distorted after performing auto keystone correction check the sensors for
dirt and clean them if necessary. See page 70 for more information.
If this does not solve the problem, try changing the position of the projector slightly or
perform manual keystone correction.
AF/AK at Short Projection Distances
Performing the AF/AK (Auto Focus, auto keystone correction) operation when there is sharp
angle and when there is only a short distance between the projector and screen can result in
the left and right edges of the image to be out of focus. If this happens, reduce the angle or
increase the distance between the projector and screen.
Using Color Mode (COLOR MODE)
The color mode setting lets you specify the type of image you will be projecting, so the
projector can optimize image color.
To change the color mode setting
1. Press
the [COLOR MODE] key.
z This causes the color mode screen to appear on the projection image. The

Using the Setup Menu
Before Configuring Menu Settings
Always remember that the settings you configure on the setup menu are applied for the input
source (RGB, Component, S-VIDEO, VIDEO) that was selected when you displayed the setup
menu. Note the following important points.
z The items that appear on the setup menu depend on the currently selected input source
and other factors.
Some items apply to a certain specific input source, while some apply to multiple input
sources.
z Even for menu items that are common to multiple input sources, the setting range or
selectable options may differ according to the input source.
z With certain exceptions, there are basically two types of settings that can be configured
for multiple input sources. One type lets you configure different settings for each individual
input source. The other type applies a single setting to all input sources. The volume
level setting, for example, lets you configure a different setting for each input source, while
the keystone correction setting lets you configure a single common setting for all input
sources.
z For details about how settings are saved, and other details, see “Setup Menu Reference”
on page 31.

When the input signal from the computer connected to the projector is not an
XGA signal, the image is automatically enlarged or reduced so it matches the
projector’s video resolution and fills the entire screen.
Off:
Turns off resizing of the image input from the computer. If the image input from
the computer is smaller than XGA, the size of the projected image will also be
smaller. When the image input from the computer is larger than XGA, only the
center part of the image that corresponds to XGA size is projected.
z Resizing of an input image by “Resize Image To Fit” can call coarsening of the image or
can cause part of the image to be cut off. If this happens, try turning off “Resize Image
To Fit”. Note, however, that turning off “Resize Image To Fit” can cause the projected
image to become smaller, or it can cause only the center part of the image to be
projected.

Password Feature
Using the Password Feature
The password feature lets you limit use of the projector to specific individuals. Note that the
password feature is not an anti-theft measure.
The projector is preset with an 8-key operation sequence at the factory as an initial default
password. To use the password feature for the first time, use the procedure explained in the
“Option Settings1 J Power On Password” on page 48 to input the initial default password. Be
sure to replace the initial default password with a unique password created by you as soon
as possible.
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. You should replace remote controller batteries as soon as possible after you notice
the laser pointer beam is becoming weak.
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 you 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.
z Clearing the password will return all other projector settings (except for the lamp use
time) to their initial factory defaults.
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.

Appendix
Cleaning the Projector
z Always make sure that the projector has cooled sufficiently before cleaning it. If the
projector is turned on, perform the following steps before cleaning it.
1. Turn off the projector.
2. Check to make sure that the POWER/STANDBY indicator has changed to amber.
3. Unplug the power cord from the power outlet, and allow the projector to cool down for
about 60 minutes.
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 the Sensors
Carefully wipe the sensors with a commercially available lens cloth or optical lens paper, like
those for eyeglasses or camera lenses.
Cleaning Intake and Exhaust Vents
Dust and dirt tend to collect around the
intake vents located on the bottom of the
projector. Because of this, you should use
a vacuum cleaner to clean away
accumulated dust and dirt periodically as
shown below. When cleaning vents, you
should set the vacuum clear to its lowest
power setting.
70
Appendix
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 other intake and exhaust vents (on the sides, etc.). If this happens, use the
same procedure as that described above to clean the side vents.
Reattaching the Lens Cover
Use the following procedure to replace the lens cover if it should accidentally become
detached from the projector.
1. Insert the nub (3) of the left tab of the lens
cover into the depression
(1) of the tab under the lens.
z
When performing the above step, make sure that the lens cover is angled less than
90 degrees.
