Question about Epson - PowerLite S1+ Multimedia Projector

Open Question

Epson S1+ Projector has thin vertical lines on video projection

The projector has functioned beautifully for about 175 hours of DVD and VHS video projection. Only very recently has it started displaying thin vertical lines both when projecting a video image, or when at the standard DVD player menu. At first my assumption was that I lost pixles, but these lines are too perfectly spaced, and span the width of the screen. The video is viewable, but poor quality due to the lines. However, when sources are unplugged and it projects the Epson blue screen the image is perfectly clear.

I've tried a different DVD unit and a different composite video cord. Problem still exists. FYI, I checked the troubleshooting manual, and don't believe these vertical lines are the same as what is referred to in the manual, as that references adjusting tracking to impacy frequency between a computer and the projector.

Help on this one would be most appreciated.

You have not set the port on the back of the projector settings.

Go into the projector menu and go into the IMAGE area. Somewhere in here you should be able to select computer.

I've found my solution. My troubleshooting info said to go to "signal" and make sure that "auto" was turned on. However, I couldn't find "auto" when I first tried. There are two places where signal comes up. The second one is under "set-up" and that is where you turn "auto" on. It works perfectly now. I hope this helps. For the icons, make sure you have "mirror image" turned on in your displays preferences if you're on a Mac. Good luck.

SOURCE: computer screen doesn't project onto wall

There is a function f-key combo that you need to toggle on your laptop. I'm assuming that you are just using a laptop. Depending on the manufacturer, the f-key will have either a square with a line beside either side. Maybe it says ctr/lcd, or it looks like two squares side by side. You will have to press the fn key at the same time as the corresponding f-key, up to three times, depending on manufacturer.

SOURCE: images has a blue color across the center

Wow, 3 in a row. As described on 2 other projector issues this is very similar to those others. I'll repeat the info here.

I assume this is an LCD. I don't remember the s4 being a DLP projector.

This sounds like the LCD panel used for the blue color has gone out. The image is made up of red, green and blue images layered upon the screen. If the blue panel has gone out then there is nothing filtering out the red light in the image.

It looks like yours has just a secone of the panel dying or comming loose from it's connector.

It could be a simple open and reconnect fix. I personally have never opened a projector, so I'm not going to walk you through it as I do not know how hard it would be to tinker with. It should eb a cheap fix for a true repair man though.

Why does canon MP258 printer with scanner can't scan japanese yen paper bill amount 10,000. I tried it over 10 times but it stops,. And when i tried US paper bill, it works well. I need some explanation...


When you scan with any scanner it utilised the software with "Optical Character Recognition functions, usually abbreviated to OCR -> OCR is a field of research in pattern recognition, artificial intelligence and computer vision." to scan and record the scanned object, sometimes it does not or cannot recognise certain symbols or characters because of man made software & hardware have its limitations too.

Hope it helps.

My fax wont work in my ricoh aficio 1515 mf??


Using the 1515 as a fax machine is a pretty simple procedure if everything works right. All you have to do is hook a working phone line up to the phone jack on the back of the copier (the one labeled LINE, not TEL).

Why won't the fax work? If it is giving you an error message, what is the message?

If you are not getting a dial tone when faxing, unplug the fax from the phone line and plug a working phone in, and see if the phone gets a dial tone. If it doesn't, there is a problem with your phone line.

You can also try plugging the fax machine into another phone line. If the fax works on that line, then there may be a problem with the first line.

Are you having problems sending faxes or receiving them, or both?
