Controlling the projector using a personal computer
This projector can be controlled by connecting a personal computer with RS-232C terminal.
PC-controllable functions:
• Turning the power ON or OFF
• Changing input signals
• Inputting commands by pressing the buttons on the control panel and remote control
• Menu setting

Important:
• Connect the computer with the projector on a one-to-one basis.
• 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.

Send the command from the personal computer
to the projector.
2
The projector will send a return command after it If the projector does not receive commands
receives an end code.
normally, that is, if the projector is not connected
physically or unable to receive commands, it
does not send out a return command.
The projector sends out a return command within
one second at the latest.
When the received command cannot be
executed, NAK is returned (as described below).
3
The personal computer checks the command
and confirms if the sent command has been
received or not.

Note
Use the check command to see if the projector
has executed the command.
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.
NAK return
In the following cases, the projector returns the command with “:N” added.
(1) Though the command sent from the computer is received by the projector successfully, it cannot be executed
because the projector is in the operation prohibition state.
(2) The data length of the sent command is incorrect or the command is invalid.
When a command is sent out during the following operations, it may not be executed.
(1) During signal switching
(2) In the process of the auto position
(3) After the power is turned on.
The projector receives no commands for about 20 seconds (or for 2 minutes at the longest if the lamp does not
light up promptly as the life is expiring). In this case, the projector returns the received command with NAK
added.
The return command is sent out within 1 second at the latest.
When sending commands successively, wait to receive the return command of the current command before sending
a next command.
The projector may not receive a command when the splash screen is being displayed immediately after turning on
the power. Use command “00r10” to cancel the splash screen.
While using the LAN terminals, the LAN functions take precedence.
For the LAN terminals, the same commands as those for connecting with the TCP/IP (port number 63007) are available. Note, however, that the response becomes slightly slower than when using the RS-232C terminals. For the use
of LAN terminals, see page 11.

4.7 Password lock commands
The password lock commands control the password lock. The password lock enabling or disabling command is
sent with a 4 -digit password comprised of any figures 1 to 4 added to the end of the data code. When the
password lock is enabled successfully, the projector sends a return command comprising the data code, password.
When enabling the password lock fails, it sends a return command with “:N” at the end. There is no reconfirmation
of the password.

5. Execution procedure of RS-232C commands via LAN
When the RS-232C command is executed via LAN, a 32-byte connection certification data must be added before the
RS-232C command.
To create a 32-byte certification data, following information and procedure are required.
• Random character string for creating the certification data that is acquired from the projector (8 characters)
• Network password of the projector (1 to 32 characters)
• MD5 hash calculation
• Based on the above, the execution procedures to connect to the projector and send the RS-232C commands are
described below.
1. Connect to Port 63007 of the projector from the PC as a TCP/IP client.
2. After completing the connection, send the acquisition request for the certification data (“$AK ”) from the PC
to the projector.
3. Acquire “$AK******** ” on the PC as the response of the request sent in Step 2. (********: Random character
string for creating the certification data)
4. Create the data for the certification on the PC.
•Create the key of the certification data by linking the data acquired in Step 3 with the network character
string.
For example, when the random character string is 12345678 and the password is ABCD, the key of the
certification data is 12345678ABCD (character string in ASCII code).
•Run MD5 hash on the key of the certification data.
•Create the certification data by converting the hash-calculated 16-byte data into the ASCII code character
string.
Example:
Calculation result: [4f][3c][5d][a1][7b][4f][b5][ed][2c][99][4e][bb][f6][57][67][54] (hexadecimal numeral)
Certification data: 4f 3c 5d a1 7b 4f b5 ed 2c 99 4e bb f6 57 67 54 (character string in ASCII code)
5. Send the RS-232C command with the certification data from the PC to the projector.
Example:
To send the PON command (00! ) using the certification data created in Step 4:
4f3c5da17b4fb5ed2c994ebbf657675400!
6. Receive the response from the projector on the PC.
Response data has the following patterns.
Normal: 00!
(Parameter is added depending on the command.)
Error in the certification data: PRV=ERRA
Command error: 00!:N
