•
•
•
•
Turning the power ON or OFF
Changing input signals
Inputting commands by pressing the buttons on the control panel and remote control

Important:
• Make sure that your computer and projector are turned off before connection.
• Boot up the computer first, and then plug the power cord of the projector.
(If you do not follow this instruction, the Com port may not function.)
• Adapters may be necessary depending on the PC connected to this projector. Contact your dealer for details.

This projector uses RXD, TXD and GND lines for RS-232C control.
For RS-232C cable, the reverse type cable should be used.
2) Control command diagram
The command consists of the address code, function code, data code, and end code. The length of the command
varies among the functions.

3) Control sequence
(1) Send the command from the personal computer to the projector.
(2) The projector will send a return command after it receives an end code. If the command is not received
correctly, the projector will not send the return command.
(3) The personal computer checks the command and confirms if the sent command has been executed or not.
(4) This projector sends various codes other than the return code. When having a control sequence by RS-232C,
reject other codes from the personal computer.
• During signal switching, the command may not take effect even when the projector sends the return command.
After signal switching completes, wait for the mode indication to disappear before sending the next command.
• When sending commands successively, wait to receive the return command of the current command before
sending a next command.
• Keep intervals of at least 400 ms between receipt of a return command and sending of a next command.
• Any commands will not be executed for 10 seconds after the power is turned on.

7) Password lock commands
The password lock commands control the password lock. The password lock enabling or disabling command is
sent with a 4-digit figure (password) added to the end of the data code. When the password lock is enabled or
disabled successfully, the projector sends a return command comprising the data code, password, and “1” at the
end. When enabling or disabling the password lock fails, it sends a return command with “0” at the end. There is
no reconfirmation of the password.
