RS-232C Adjustment Mode 1.0 RS-232C Adjustment Mode This display panel has an RS-232C terminal. It is possible to use a PC to make adjustments and settings. 1.1 About the RS-232C Adjustment Mode 1) Adjustments in the RS-232C adjustment mode: • The adjustments are written to the same memory area as for the integrator mode. Refer to section 5.4.4, “PICTURE, White Balance and SCREEN Position Adjustment Values Memory Area Tables"...
Also, when extending the RS-232C cable over a long distance, lower the baud rate. 4) Data format Start: 1 bit Data: 8 bit Parity: 0 (no parity) Stop: 1 bit 5) Connection Plasma Display (PDP-505CMX/50MXE10/50MXE11) Control PC (PDP-504CMX/50MXE1/50MXE1-S) (with D25 serial port ) (PDP-434CMX/43MXE1/43MXE1-S) RXD 3 TXD 2 CTS 5 GND 7 * D-sub 9-pin/D-sub 25-pin conversion tables are now available on the market.
RS-232C Adjustment Mode 1.3 ID Assignment After connecting to a computer, the PC can assign an ID for each plasma display panel. Commands: <IDC> (ID CLEAR) ... Clears the assigned ID <IDS> (ID SET) ... Assigns an ID IDS is only effective when an ID is not assigned. Also, IDs are set starting from the set closest to the PC.
1.4 Combination Connection When performing control and adjustment, it is easiest to connect several panels to one PC. By performing a combination connection and assigning IDs to the displays, it is possible to control and adjust several panels at the same time or separately. Connection method: Connect the panels as shown below.
RS-232C Adjustment Mode Under the connection conditions shown below, up to 16 panels can be controlled and operated. 1 Length of RS-232C cable connecting PC to PDP-505CMX/PDP-50MXE10/PDP-50MXE11/PDP-504CMX/ Conditions: PDP-50MXE1/PDP-50MXE1-S/PDP-434CMX/PDP-43MXE1/PDP-43MXE1-S: 5 m 2 Combination cable length: 5 m each 3 Wire specifications for linking cable: Mini Din 6-pin straight (7 strand cable)
1.5 List of RS-232C Commands How to read this Table • RS-232C adjustment validity : Indicates whether the RS-232C adjustment mode can be used • Normal validity : Indicates whether the normal-operation mode can be used • Numerical direct validity : With a 3-digit number attached to the end of a command, the command directly sets that adjustment value ‡...

2.0 Screen Burning When the same image is shown for a long time (still image, telop, etc.), the image is burned into to screen and may not be able to be removed. Manage this situation by making necessary changes in the video software, projection method, system configuration, etc.
In this case, it is necessary to set the image quality beforehand. For instructions on setting the image quality, contact your PIONEER representative. Pioneer recommends that the ‘ENERGY SAVE’ mode be set to ‘MODE2’ or ‘MODE3’.
¶ An invalid operation was attempted. Check the input signals, connections and settings. ¶ Turn the main power OFF, wait 1 or 2 minutes and turn the power ON again. If the problem still persists, remove the power plug from the outlet and contact a Pioneer service center or dealer. Remedy...
5) Readjustment of the White Balance This unit uses phosphor elements as in a CRT display. Phosphor degrades over time, reducing the brightness. Since, green and blue phosphor elements degrade faster than red, Pioneer recommends readjusting the white balance every 1000 hours.
