IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
Read Instructions – All the safety and operating
instructions should be read before the appliance is
operated.
Grounding or Polarization – This product may be
equipped with either a polarized 2-wire AC line plug
(a plug having one blade wider than the other) or a 3wire grounding type plug, a plug having a third
(grounding) pin. The 2-wire polarized plug will fit into
the power outlet only one way. This is a safety
feature. If you are unable to insert the plug fully into
the outlet, try reversing the plug. If the plug still fails
to fit, contact your electrician to replace your
obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the safety purpose of
the polarized plug. The 3-wire grounding type plug
will fit into a grounding type power outlet. This is a
safety feature. If you are unable to insert the plug
into the outlet, contact your electrician to replace
your obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the safety
purpose of the grounding type plug.

Here, set the [D] key of the In/Out selector switch to [1].
Note: When using an RS-232C cable available in the market, make sure of the connection shown below.
Note: To protect the Presenter and the PC, be sure to turn OFF all the power switches of all equipment before
connecting.
(2) Start the PC, and set the communication mode of the RS-232C to the communication mode of the Presenter.
Note: For the information how to set the communication mode of the RS-232C, refer to the instruction manual of the
PC.
(3) Start the PC program to operate the Presenter.
(4) Control through the RS-232C will start.
Note: For communication control, be sure to take the above steps for setting.

This command is executed in the form of 1-command/1 packet. The next command is not accepted until the previous
processing is completed.
• The communication command always starts with STX (Start of Text) [02H], and ends with ETX (End of Text) [03H].
• If the communication format or command name is wrong, NAK (Negative Acknowledgement) [15H] will be sent
from the Presenter as a result of failing to receive correctly.
• When the communication format is correctly received, the Presenter sends ACK (Normal Acknowledgement) [06H].

10. TROUBLESHOOTING HINTS
Symptom
Possible cause/countermeasure
No image on the screen
• Cable is not properly connected to the video-in terminal of
monitor.
• The power cord is disconnected from the wall AC outlet.
• The plug is disconnected from the power cord receptacle of the
Presenter.
• The power switch is not turned ON.
• Zoom is set at TELE to display only white/black part of the
material.
• The switch is turned ON immediately after it is turned OFF. In
this case, the Presenter may not start. Wait several seconds after
turning OFF the power switch, and then turn ON the power
switch.
• The In/Out selector switch is not correctly selected according to
connected equipment (See P. 8 and 13).
Out of focus
• The object is too close to the lens. Check if it does not stand
higher than 15 cm (5.9 in.) above the stage surface.
• Zoom is set at TELE after focusing at WIDE angle.
Focus on the point of max. TELE.
• In the auto focus, focusing is difficult in some cases.
The lamp is not quickly turned ON.
• For protection purposes, the lamp is turned ON after preheating
for 2 seconds. This is not a fault.
Image is too dark.
• The ambient light is not sufficient. Press the lighting unit button
[LAMP] to turn ON the upper lamp.
The image of printed matter is striped.
• This is caused by the interference between the dots of printed
matter and the scanning line.
The image flickers
• The light from the discharge tube (50Hz) does not come to the
screen. This may be reduced by setting the [C] key of the In/Out
selector switch to [1] (50Hz) (See P. 8).
If the trouble still remains after checking the above, consult your dealer or an authorized ELMO service center.
