this color temperature by changing the numbers of contrast
blue and red.
To set the color temperature high:
Set the contrast B (Blue) number high, and the contrast R
(Red) number low.
To set the color temperature low:
Set the contrast B (Blue) number low, and the contrast R
(Red) number high.
Although this projector sets proper signal systems
automatically for the image signal from personal
computers, it cannot be applied to some of personal
computers. In this case, press the AUTO POSITION

Maintenance
Caution:
Be sure to turn off the projector and unplug the power
cord from the wall outlet before you perform any maintenance on the projector.
Cleaning the air-filter
Clean the air-filter frequently (about once a month). If
the filter or ventilation slots become clogged with dirt
or dust, the temperature inside of the projector may
rise and cause some troubles, such as damage of inside parts, and shortening the life of panel.
• When the temperature inside of the projector
rises, the TEMP indicator blinks in red, and the
power will be shut off to be stand-by which LAMP
indicator is turned off.
Filter cover
1. To remove the filter cover, press the ridged
area gently, push the cover in the direction
of the arrow and lift.
2. Remove the air-filter from the filter cover.
3. Wash the air-filter.
• Use water or a mild
detergent diluted with
water to clean the filter.
Rinse the filter
thoroughly and let it dry
completely.
Filter
Filter cover
4. Attach the filter to the cover.
5. Reinstall the filter cover.
Important:
• If the filter is damaged or becomes extremely
dirty, contact your dealer for replacement.
• The power will not turn on if the air-filter cover is
improperly installed.
Caution:
Be sure to use the projector with an air-filter. If not,
dust may get inside the projector, causing a fire or a
breakdown.
EN – 24
Cleaning the projector and the ventilation
slots
Use a soft cloth to clean the projector and the ventilation slots. When the slots become dirty, wipe them with
a soft cloth dampened with a diluted mild detergent,
and then wipe them with a dry cloth.
To protect the surface of the projector from fading or
deteriorating:
• Do not spray insecticide on or inside the projector.
• Do not use benzine or thinner to clean it.
• Do not let rubber or plastic materials come into
contact with the projector.
Cleaning the lens
Use a standard lens-cleaning brush or a piece of lens
tissue dampened with lens cleaning fluid. The lens surface is fragile. Use only recommended, nonabrasive
lens-cleaning materials. Do not touch the lens with your
fingers.
The following offers solutions to some of the common problems you may encounter. We suggest that you consult

Important:
• Make sure that your computer and projector are turned off before connection.
• Turn on the projector after the computer is started up.
(If you do not follow this order, the Comport may not function.)
• If your PC (IBM or IBM compatible) is equipped only with a 25-pin serial port connector, a 25-pin serial port
adapter is required. 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 is structured by the address code, function code, data code and end code. The length of the
command is different by each function.

3) Control sequence
(1) Send the command from a personal computer to the projector. (The commands must be sent at least
400ms apart.)
(2) The projector will send a return command 400ms* after it has received 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 command which has been sent has been
executed or not.
(4) This projector sends various codes other than the return code. When having a control sequence by RS232C, reject other codes from personal computer side.
•
* : The sending time of return command maybe delayed depending on the condition (during changing the
input signal, etc.).
