The DC voltage obtained by the active filter 15 is sent to the fan 14 via the fan control 16 and also sent to the lamp 18 via the lamp power switch 17.

  The main power supply circuit 12 generates a power supply (microcomputer power supply) for the microcomputer 6 and a power supply for circuits other than the microcomputer 6 (circuit power supply). The microcomputer power generated by the main power supply circuit 12 is supplied to the microcomputer 6. The circuit power generated by the main power circuit 12 is supplied to the power terminals of the respective circuits.

  The lamp power switch 17 is on / off controlled by the microcomputer 6. When the lamp power switch 17 is turned on, a voltage is applied to the lamp 18 and the lamp 18 is lit.

  The microcomputer 6 detects the temperature inside the storage device (not shown) such as a ROM storing a program, the storage device such as a RAM storing a necessary data (not shown), a nonvolatile memory 7 of the EEPROM, and the projector. A temperature sensor 23 and the like are provided. In addition, a command from a remote controller (not shown) is input to the microcomputer 6 via a remote control receiver (R / C) 22 and a command from the operation unit 24 such as a keyboard is input.

  The liquid crystal projector has an analog RGB input terminal 20 for inputting an analog RGB signal from a computer, a digital RGB input terminal 19 for inputting a digital RGB signal from a computer, and a composite video signal from a VCR, a DVD or the like. Is provided with an analog video input terminal 21.

  The analog RGB video signal input from the analog RGB input terminal 20 of the liquid crystal projector is converted into a digital signal by the analog / digital conversion circuit 2, and then the image is reduced or enlarged by the scan conversion circuit 5, and then digitally converted. It is sent to the liquid crystal panel 11 via the gamma correction circuit 9 and the sample & hold 10.

The video decoder 4 converts the input signal into an RGB signal and outputs it. The RGB signal from the video decoder 4 is sent to the operation conversion circuit 5 via the analog-digital conversion circuit 2, and then sent to the liquid crystal panel 11 via the digital gamma correction circuit 9 and the sample & hold 10.

  It is also possible to connect this liquid crystal projector to an external device such as a PC via RS232C, exchange information between the external device and the projector, and inform the external device of the internal state of the projector (Japanese Patent Laid-Open No. 2002-55806). No. publication).

  A command for notifying the internal state of the projector will be described based on the list shown in Table 1.

  The command “TEMP” is a command for the liquid crystal projector that has received the command to notify the external device of temperature information inside the liquid crystal projector, and the command consisting of the character string “TEMP” is transmitted from the external device to the liquid crystal projector via RS232C. Then, the liquid crystal projector receives this, reads the temperature data from the temperature sensor 23, and returns this data to the external device as a character string such as “+31.0”.

  The command “LAMPTIME” is a command for the liquid crystal projector that has received the command to notify the external device of the accumulated lamp usage time of the liquid crystal projector, and the command consisting of the character string “LAMPTIME” is transmitted from the external device to the liquid crystal projector via RS232C. Then, the liquid crystal projector receives this, and returns the total time during which the lamp 17 has been lit to the external device as a character string such as “620H” as the accumulated lamp use time. The total time during which the lamp is lit is counted independently within the microcomputer and converted into time.

  The command “POWERFAIL” is a command for the liquid crystal projector that has received the command to notify the external device of whether there is an abnormality in the power supply inside the liquid crystal projector. In response to this, the liquid crystal projector receives this and returns “YES” or “NO” to the external device as to whether there is a power supply abnormality. The presence / absence of power supply abnormality is obtained from an additional input / output port (hereinafter referred to as I / O Expander 8) connected to the microcomputer 6. The input port of the I / O Expander 8 is connected to a DC voltage from the active filter 15 supplied to the main power supply circuit 12, the fan control 16, and the lamp power supply 17, respectively. When an abnormality occurs in these power supply circuits, the connected DC voltage decreases. By detecting this at the input port of the I / O Expander 8, it is possible to know whether there is a power supply abnormality.

  Conventionally, the state of the liquid crystal projector can be known by connecting the liquid crystal projector and an external device such as a PC with an RS232C cable, which is meaningful for a serviceman. However, when the liquid crystal projector is installed in a place slightly away from an external device such as a PC (such as when suspended from a ceiling), it is not easy to connect the RS232C cable.

Further, the conventional liquid crystal projector includes a remote controller for wirelessly adjusting the video signal, and the remote controller signal sent from the remote controller is received by the remote controller receiver 22. However, the conventional liquid crystal projector does not include means for transmitting information from the liquid crystal projector to an external device using infrared communication.
