Projection Operations Auto Input Source Selection When you turn on the projector, it checks the status of each input source (whether or not the input source is sending a signal) in the sequence shown below. It automatically selects the first input source it finds that is sending an input signal, and projects the applicable image.
[Projector] [INPUT] key To select the input source using projector keys, press the [INPUT] key on the projector to cycle through input sources in the sequence shown below. (RGB/Component) To select the input source using remote controller keys, press the [RGB/COMPONENT], [VIDEO], or [S-VIDEO] key on the remote controller to select the input source you want.
Projection Operations Zoom and Focus Use the [ZOOM] keys to adjust the image size, and the [FOCUS] keys to focus the image. To adjust image size Hold down the [ZOOM +] key to increase the size of the image or the [ZOOM –] key to decrease it.
For details, see “Image Adjustment” on page 31. Keystone Correction (AF/AK, KEYSTONE) When the projector is at an angle to the screen it is projecting on, the projected image may have different length left and right edges, or top and bottom edges. This phenomenon is called, “keystoning”.
(uncorrected) image, or it can cause distortion of the image. If the projected image becomes difficult to view, try moving the screen and/or projector so they are oriented close to the configuration shown under “Setting Up the Projector” in the “User’s Guide (Basic Operations)”.
Proper Auto keystone correction and Auto Focus are not possible if the projector is not on a level surface. Make sure you set up the projector correctly, in accordance with the information under “Getting Ready” in the “User’s Guide (Basic Operations)”.
This causes the keystone correction screen to disappear. Auto Focus (AF) At times, the projector may not focus properly when you press the [AF/AK] key. This can be caused by local environmental factors, etc. If this happens, focus the image manually or try performing the AF operation again.
Performing the AF/AK (Auto Focus, auto keystone correction) operation when there is sharp angle and when there is only a short distance between the projector and screen can result in the left and right edges of the image to be out of focus. If this happens, reduce the angle or increase the distance between the projector and screen.
Projection Operations The [COLOR MODE] key is disabled while the projector is connected to a computer over a USB connection (page 67). To select the color mode in this case, use “Image Adjustment Color Mode” (page 32). Adjusting the Volume Level (VOL +/–) You can use the remote controller keys to adjust the volume level of the audio that is output from the projector’s speaker.
Projection Operations Enlarging the Projected Image (D-ZOOM +/–) You can use the remote controller’s zoom keys to enlarge a specific part of the projected image up to four times its original size. To enlarge part of the projected image On the remote controller, press the [D-ZOOM +] or [D-ZOOM –] key. This causes a cross cursor ( Use the remote controller’s cursor keys to move the cross cursor to the part of the image that you want in the center of the enlarged image.
Projection Operations Using Picture-in-Picture (P-IN-P) While RGB is selected as the input source, you can display a sub-window that simultaneously displays the image being input through the VIDEO or S-VIDEO terminal. This function is called “picture-in-picture” or “P-IN-P”. RGB input image The initial default setting for the sub-window input source is VIDEO.
On the remote controller, press the [RGB] key to select RGB as the input source. You can also select the input source using the projector’s [INPUT] key. On the remote controller, press the [P-IN-P] key to display the sub- window.
Freezing the Projected Image (FREEZE) The freeze function stores the current projected image in projector memory, and projects it as a still image. To freeze the projected image On the remote controller, press the [FREEZE] key.
You can use the pointer to point to a specific location of the projected image during a presentation. The pointer cannot be displayed while the projector is connected to a computer over a USB connection (page 75). The pointer can be displayed regardless of the input source.
You can use the remote controller as a wireless mouse to perform mouse operations on the computer that is connected to the projector. Wireless mouse capabilities really come in handy when you need to open a presentation software file for projection during a meeting or presentation.
Projection Operations To operate the computer with the remote controller Use the mini D-Sub cable and USB cable that come with the projector to connect the computer to the projector. After that, turn on the projector and the computer. See the following for more information.
Pressing the [MENU] key while an image is being projected displays the setup menu on the projected image. The setup menu can be used to configure a variety of different projector settings. The following table shows the menu items that are available in the Setup Menu.

(Green: Y; Blue: Cb/Pb; Red: Cr/Pr). You can use the optional YK-3 component video cable to connect to pin jack (RCA) type component video output terminals. The projector does not support connection to any other type of terminal.
Connecting a Computer to the Projector’s USB Port After you connect a computer to the projector’s USB port, you can use the remote controller to perform computer mouse operations, and previous page and next page operations. The illustration shows how to connect to the USB port.
The projector outputs images using XGA (1024 pixels × 768 pixels) video resolution. When the input signal from the computer connected to the projector is not an XGA signal, “Resize Image To Fit” automatically enlarges or reduces the image so it matches the projector’s video resolution and fills the entire screen.
You will not be able to use the projector if you forget the password for some reason. If you forget the password, you will need to bring the following two items to your CASIO distributor to have the password cleared. Note that you will be charged to have the password cleared.
60 minutes. Cleaning the Projector Exterior Wipe the exterior of the projector with a soft cloth that has been moistened in a weak solution of water and a mild neutral detergent. Be sure to wring all excess moisture from the cloth before wiping.
Certain operating conditions also can cause dirt and dust to accumulate around the projector’s other intake and exhaust vents (on the sides, etc.). If this happens, use the same procedure as that described above to clean the side vents.
Do not apply undue force to the lens cover when performing the above step. Pressing too strongly can damage the tabs of the lens cover. Projector Troubleshooting Check the following items whenever you experience any problem with the projector. Problem The projector does not turn on when I press the [ (power) key.
The correct output source is not selected on the projector. On the projector, select the input source that corresponds to the device whose image you are trying to project. Images may not project correctly when you have the component output terminal of a video device connected to the RGB terminal of the projector.
