Projector Serial Port Codes

I'm trying to find the serial port codes to add to an application we developed to turn on/off our overhead projectors from the computer. The computer has a serial connection to our projectors and it works with all of them but out new Sanyo PLC-XU101 and I can't seem to find any documentation on this. Maybe they are the same for older models but I wanted to see if anyone already has figured this out.

Thanks

The WXU10 has a different serial port and completely different command protocols from the other Sanyo ranges! Assuming you have the serial cable (9D to 6P rather then 9D to 8P on a standard Sanyo, you will need to use completely different codes!

The manual available from Sanyo for this model has a table of codes, but instead of the more common ASCII 'C' Commands (e.g. "C00"+(CR)) it uses a string of 13 HEX characters, each string starting with a BE EF header, some other control parameters and finally an XOR checksum of all the previous bytes....no LF or CR at the end, Just pure hex values.

Not easy to remember, either....you WILL need the table from the manual!

Hi there

They might be the same if the Projectors are from the same series.

First figure out if the RS232 codes are in ASCII or HEX. You will most probably be using the HEX codes.

Best would be to contact the dealer you bought this unit from - they should by all means be able to help you out.

Hello,
You have to use a serial port HDMI cable to do the connection,
Also check if your laptop is compatible with the projector, if the laptop is compatible you have to try a new cable Good luck in solving the problem........

try brand new cables. I think a spike would possibly do this, doubtful though since the projector itself is not fried. also try reflashing the unit with the newest firmware.

I am trying to set up an InFocus LP400 projector with my computer. I followed the instructions using the CableWizard Lite cable for my laptop pc and get no projected image. I used the suggested port...


Hello,

start the connecting all over again, by following the steps below:

1. Turn your computer off.

2. Connect the cable from the computer to the projector. If you want to have your monitor to be hooked up as well, connect a splitter to the video out port (DVI or VGA). You can also just hook the projector up to the second port on your video card (If you have one) or if you have a laptop, you can connect to the video out port on the back.

3. Turn the computer on and boot into your desktop.

4. Turn on the projector. Most projectors have an auto detect function, that will detect a video signal and auto configure the projector to display that signal. If you have a laptop, you have to hit a function key to activate the second display. Usually this is FN Key + F5 or one of the F Keys across the top of the laptop keyboard. It looks like two squares, one empty and one with something in it.

5. Adjust the focus, brightness, contrast, and color on the projector.

6. Aim the projector at something white. Try not to aim it at something highly reflective.

7. Step back ... Load up your favorite game or video ... and enjoy.

Your project should work, after following the above instruction.

Good luck.

How do I change the input from the DVI-I input to the 15


I found the online manual and followed the instructions to set to "auto" input. Everything works fine.
It had been a discouraging ordeal trying to locate a new DVI cable (which came with the projector)
and as it turns out the 15 pin cable works fine. Thank you.

Connecting a Sharp Multimedia Projector XR-40/30 Series Notevision 30X to a HP Pavilion Zd7000. I cannot get an imageMultimedia projector


use a vga to vga cable. if your HP has a 13 pin serial conector. (looks like a trapezoid), use that.
If not you may need a dvi to vga cable.
if not, the projector may have two ports on the back - use computer in - not monitor in.

Lastly, try the video settings on the HP to see if its picking up the projector as a second monitor as a primary

No Signal


Try it with 75Hz for the second monitor and use the VGA input.

USB/serial is only for configuration.
