1-5-1. Outline
This unit is provided with a network terminal. Using a Web browser, it can check the state of a projector
and control and set the network blocks.
Additionally, this unit has Update and Event Trace functions through a network as a service-dedicated
function.
The Update function can update Main (scan converter), Sub (sub-microcomputer), and Ext (network
microcomputer) firmware.
The Event Trace function can view the event logs (a timer, lamp timer reset log, error log, and mail report
log) of a projector.
1. Connection of projector and PC
. Set using a CAT5 cross cable so that the network setting of the projector and PC is the same in a
subnet when connecting a projector and PC directly.
. Connect PC to the LAN so as to adjust the network setting of PC to LAN operating environment
when a projector is connected to LAN.
2. IP address confirmation
Turn on the power of a projector and display a menu screen. On the [Connection/Power] screen of a
menu, confirm the IP address of the projector.
3. Entering the service mode
To use a service-dedicated function, enter the service mode. To enter the service mode, enter the
following in the address bar of a Web browser (IE6/7/8):
http:// (IP address of projector) /service/
You are prompted to enter a user name and password. Enter them as follows:

m
. The port number used for TCP of updating is 58525. When the port number is used in another application, updating may not be executed satisfactorily. In this case, delete the application before updating.
. Updating may fail when many hubs are connected between PC and a projector.
. Updating may fail when network traffics are congested. It is recommended to update when there are a
few network traffics.
. It is recommended to set DHCP manually rather than to acquire DHCP automatically.
. The address leased from DHCP is not released in the Update mode when DHCP is set automatically.
Avoid updating in the environment where DHCP has a short lease period.
. Updating may fail due to the blocked fire wall function. Invalidate the fire wall function before updating.

Boards requiring use of lead-free solder are printed with a lead free mark (LF) indicating the solder
contains no lead.
(Caution: Some printed circuit boards may not come printed with the lead free mark due to their particular
size.)
: LEAD FREE MARK
m
. Be sure to use the lead-free solder for the printed circuit board printed with the lead free mark.
. The lead-free solder melts at a temperature about 40 dC higher than the ordinary solder, therefore, it is
recommended to use the soldering iron having a temperature regulator.
. The ordinary soldering iron can be used but the iron tip has to be applied to the solder joint for a slightly
longer time. The printed pattern (copper foil) may peel away if the heated tip is applied for too long, so
be careful.

3-2. Circuit Description


3-2-1. Main Board
Video input block
Composite video and S video signals are input from VIDEO and S VIDEO of S VIDEO IN/VIDEO IN.
The two input signals are directly input to a video processor and converted into digital data using the
internal AD converter of the video processor.
PC input block
The input signals from RGB of two channels * INPUT A and INPUT B are input to a video processor. One
of the two signals is selected using a switching menu and converted into digital data using the internal AD
converter of the video processor. The signal selected using a video buffer is output from MONITOR of
OUTPUT.
A component signal and video GBR signal as well as a PC signal can be also input to the RGB/Y PBPR
connector of INPUT A.
Only a PC signal can be input to the RGB connector of INPUT B.
AUDIO input block
A signal is input from the L (MONO) AUDIO R of S VIDEO IN/VIDEO IN and AUDIO of INPUT A/B *
stereo mini jacks. The signal selected using an audio processor is output to AUDIO of OUTPUT and a
speaker.
MONITOR output block
An RGB signal is input from INPUT A/B *, and the channel signal selected by input switching is output
from MONITOR of OUTPUT. The channel signal is not output when VIDEO and S VIDEO are selected.
The signal input from AUDIO of INPUT A/B * is output from AUDIO of OUTPUT. The output signal can
be changed using a volume control.
The signal output from an internal speaker is switched by setting a speaker menu to ON and OFF.
Video processor & system control block
PW-950 made by Plxelworks is installed in main CPU, and an R5P series made by Renesas is installed in
sub-CPU. Input signals pixel count conversion, aspect conversion, and OSD addition are performed using
these ICs. These ICs also enable brightness, sharpness, chroma, hue, and system controls.
Control target: Control panel, OSD display, lamp cover switch, LED, and serial control
LCD timing generator (DSD2) block
Using a Sony LCD panel IC, the LCD timing generator block generates a timing pulse that drives an LCD
panel. This block also uses a system in which the driving direction is reversed for each frame. White
balance adjustment, gamma adjustment, and color smudge adjustment as well as timing pulse generation
are performed in this IC.
LCD driver block
The LCD driver block uses a Sony LCD panel drive IC. The LCD panel is 12-phase- driven using the timing pulse generated using a timing generator. This block mounts GBR and a three-channel circuit.

VPL-EX100

3-5 (E)

Fan control and temperature detection block


This block uses an IC into which fan control and temperature detection functions were incorporated.
. Fan control
Detects FG of a fan to control the number of rotations. Sets the number of rotations according to the
internal temperature of this unit.
. Temperature detection
Temperature sensors are arranged at three points to measure the internal temperature of this unit.
Ballast drive block
This block drives ballast in synchronization with an input signal. A synchronization circuit is constituted
by sub-CPU.
RS-232C block
This block is connected with main CPU through an RS-232C driver and receiver.
*: VPL-EX100 has only INPUT A.

3-2-2. Sensor Board


The TL board of a lamp temperature sensor, the U board of a lamp cover switch, and the NFTA board of
an external air temperature sensor and IR sensor are available as a sensor board.

3-2-3. G Board
This board supplies lamp power and system power. The system power outputs +17.5 V and +6.5 V and
generates the power for a circuit on a main board.

SAFETY CHECK-OUT
After correcting the original service problem,
perform the following safety checks before
releasing the set to the customer :
Check the metal trim, metallized knobs,
screws, and all other exposed metal parts for AC
leakage. Check leakage as described below.
LEAKAGE TEST
The AC leakage from any exposed metal part
to earth ground and from all exposed metal
parts to any exposed metal part having a return
to chassis, must not exceed 3.5 mA. Leakage
current can be measured by any one of three
methods.
1. A commercial leakage tester, such as the
Simpson 229 or RCA WT-540A. Follow the
manufacturers instructions to use these
instruments.
2. A battery-operated AC milliammeter. The
Data Precision 245 digital multimeter is
suitable for this job.
3. Measuring the voltage drop across a resistor
by means of a VOM or battery-operated AC
voltmeter. The limit indication is 5.25 V, so
analog meters must have an accurate lowvoltage scale. The Simpson 250 and Sanwa
SH-63Trd are examples of a passive VOM
that is suitable. Nearly all battery operated
digital multimeters that have a 20 V AC
range are suitable. (See Fig. A)
