11. PJLink
11.1. About PJLink
This projector supports the industry standard protocol PJLink for projector control. It allows you to control and
monitor projector's operations using the same application among projectors of different models and different
manufacturers.
To use this function, set the PJLink certification properly according to the setting of the PJLink application to be used.
(See page 22 and 28.)
For the details of supported command, see the projector's User Manual "Supervising and controlling by computer".
This projector, which is equipped with LAN terminal and manufactured by Mitsubishi Electric Corporation, is fully
compliant to the specifications of JBMIA PJLink Class 1. It supports all the commands defined by PJLink Class 1,
and the compliance has been verified with the PJLink standard specifications Version 1.0.
<Note>
• The above-mentioned control may not be performed correctly or the monitoring data may not be obtained correctly
in the following conditions:
• During standby
• During input source switching
• During command processing
• During AUTO POSITION execution
• During AV mute
• Before the splash screen disappears after the power is turned on.
• During AV mute, etc., it may take approx. 5 seconds to receive a response to a command.
• Use 1 controller to control/monitor 1 projector.
• For how to control/monitor using PJLink, see the operation manual of the PJLink application you use.
• When you monitor the projector's operating state using this function by issuing inquiry commands successively,
issue an inquiry command after receiving the response to the previous inquiry command from the projector.
• For the specifications of PJLink, access to the Web site of Japan Business Machine and Information System
Industries Association (JBMIA). (http://pjlink.jbmia.or.jp/english)
• Supported command varies depending on the model of projectors. For details of the supported commands in the
projectors listed in "12.2. Supported Projectors", see "LAN Control Utility" User Manual included with the projector.

12. Others
12.1. Troubleshooting
• The projector can not be recognized.
The projector may not be recognized automatically due to the setting of fire wall. In such case, the communication
of "ProjectorView Global+" should be registered as an exception to the fire wall. For the setting of the fire wall, see
the manual of the software that configures the fire wall.
• Operation by the remote controller can not be properly performed.
The operation may not be performed until the last operation has been completed. In such case, wait for a while
and perform the operation again. In addition, confirm whether the network setting such as IP address is correct.
• Application becomes "No reply".
Since it may take time for processing of the automatic status acquisition, the application can not be operated during that time, and "No reply" may be displayed. Wait for a while until the processing has been ended.
• Application cannot be operated sometimes.
The application cannot be operated during the acquisition of the projector status. When the main power of the projector is off or projectors not actually connected are registered, the projector status acquisition may take longer
time to complete because it waits until timeout. In this case, you can reduce the acquisition time by deleting
unnecessary registered projectors.
• Projectors cannot be controlled. Projector status isn't displayed.
Restart the application. If the problem persists, "Initialize Network Configuration" on the setup screen or try "7 factory defaults" using a Telnet connection. In that case, you need to make settings of the projector again, because
they are reset to the default values.
12.2. Supported Projectors
• "Telnet" is available in the following types of projectors. For details, see "LAN Control Utility" User Manual included
