Troubleshooting

Unable to Connect the Projector via Wireless LAN (Wi-Fi)

It’s not right after the projector was turned on or switched to different input? If so, make sure to wait a while (longer than one minute), then connect again.

The Projector is Not Shown in Projector List

<Make sure the Wi-Fi setting is activated>
If the Wi-Fi icon is not displayed on the upper-right corner of the screen, complete the following settings on your Android device.

  • Set [Settings] – [Wi-Fi] to [ON].

  • Set [Settings] – [Airplane mode] to [OFF].

<Make sure you have joined the correct network>
In [Settings] – [Wireless and networks] – [Wi-Fi] on your Android device, check the wireless network name.

<Make sure the settings are configured correctly>
Make sure [NETWORK] – [WIRELESS LAN] in the projector's on-screen menu and the access point settings on your Android device
are configured correctly.
Turn [Settings]– [Wi-Fi] on the Android [OFF] once, then [ON] again to confirm.

<Did you quit the application while it was connected to the projector?>
If you quit the application while it is connected to the projector, the projector’s Network ID may no longer be displayed.
If so, wait a moment and then tap [Update] to update the list.

No JPEG/PNG Image is Projected

<Make sure the projector to be used is connected to the network correctly>
Make sure that the projector’s Network ID in a different color (projector connected) displayed in the Projector List
matches the Network ID of the projector to project to. If they do not match or if no projector is selected, see "Connection 1: Connecting to a Projector by Searching for the Projector" and establish a connection.

I can't connect to an S-DIRECT compatible projector.

After turning the [Settings] – [Wi-Fi] of the Android device temporarily [OFF], turn it [ON] again and try to connect.
If you still cannot connect, turn the Android power off and then on again.

No Document (PDF, PowerPoint, Excel, Word) Files is Projected

<Make sure the projector to be used is connected to the network correctly>
Make sure that the projector’s Network ID ([Proj****]) in a different color (projector in connection) displayed in the Projector List matches the projector identified in [NETWORK]* on the [INPUT GUIDE] screen. If they do not match or if no projector is selected, see "Usage 1: Connecting to a Projector by Searching for the Projector" and establish a connection.

* For the PT-VZ575N/VW535N/VX605N, PT-VW355N/VX425N and PT-VW345NZ/VX415NZ, select [Panasonic APPLICATION].

<Make sure the selected files are supported for projection>
The following files may not be projected properly.

  • Document files that contain animation, links, embedded motion images, embedded audio, embedded tables and graphs,
    word art, comment displays, or password-protected files.

  • PDF files produced by scanning at high resolution.

<Is it a document file with high-resolution images?>
When there are a large number of high-resolution images in a document file, correct display is sometimes not possible due to insufficient memory.

  • For a PowerPoint, Excel, or Word file, use an image compression function to lower the resolution of the images being used.

  • For a PDF file, use Acrobat's optimization or file size reduction function to lower the image resolution.

  • For details, refer to the operation manual of the application being used.

Projected Images Differ from Images Displayed in the Application

If you switch between multiple screens on your device, one after another, the image or page displayed may not match the image projected, in some cases. If so, double-tap the screen to make the images match.

The Wi-Fi Setting of the Android device that was changed when connecting to an S-DIRECT compatible projector
does not return to the original setting when I exit the application.

Start the application again, then follow these procedures:

  1. Select [Find Projector].

  2. Disconnect the connected projector (press the [x button] at the right edge).

  3. Exit the application.
