Question about SharpVision XV-Z9000 Multimedia Projector

VGA video display

I can't get my xv-z9000 to display properly when inputting from my Packard Bell laptop. Does it need a video driver or is there a set of video settings required on the laptop? All other inputs work correctly. Please can you help. Thanks

Can you describe what you mean by the display not being right? Are the colors wrong or does it not display at all?

Thanks,
Dan

    Just to be sure we are all on the same page...



    I understand that you have a VGA cable from your laptop to the projector and that when booting the laptop you see the startup screen. Am I correct so far?



    Second: When the laptop completes the booting process, the projector remains blank, but the laptop screen remains OK.



    Depending upon the laptop, there will be a function key to toggle between different displays. Usually these options are 1)laptop only 2) laptop plus external monitor and 3) external monitor only. During the boot process both the internal and external monitor connections are enabled for a time. Once the boot process has completed, the laptop will revert to the "standard" setting which is usually the laptop screen only. This is what is happening here. Toggle the function key to enable the external monitor and that should resolve the problem.



    If not, we'll look elsewhere.



    Keep me posted.

Hi

Sure can be fixed.

1st of all you need to connect the projector with your laptop turned off. One the laptop has finished booting and loading windows. Hit the Fn+f4 or f7 key to switch between the displays then you will get the display.

But if this also does not give display then you can check with the projector with Video INPUTS (Eg. Input 1 / Input 2 etc.,)

I just replaced the bulb on a sharp projector xvz9000. Two red lights are on constant, so I know there is power, but it won't turn on. I also tried the reset option but it didn't work.


According to the manual, the problem is with the lamp circuit, what technicians call the ballast. It's not a user-replaceable part. Send it to a service center or look for a replacement unit.

I can not connect laptop with projector


Hello,

Instructions
Things You'll Need:
Laptop computer equipped with a VGA, S-Video or HDMI output.
Overhead projector with the applicable input.
VGA, S-Video or HDMI cable.
Software to ready your content for presentation at the correct screen resolution.
DVI-VGA adapter, if you are using a Mac.
Step 1
Learn the different types of video outputs your laptop may or may not support. The three most common types of video outputs used with overhead projectors are Video Graphics Array (VGA), Separated Video (S-Video) and High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI). You need to make sure your laptop has the correct output corresponding to an input on the projector you will use.

Step 2
Weigh the strengths and weaknesses of each types of video input and output. VGA projectors are the most common type, indeed it is likely that any projector in current use will have a VGA input. However, VGA video offers the lowest resolution of the these three types. S-Video offers a higher resolution than VGA, but is prone to screen flicker, especially when you are connecting your laptop to a power supply while presenting, rather than running off the battery. HDMI offers the highest picture quality of the three, and supports audio data transfer as well. However, know that HDMI-equipped laptops and projectors are more expensive than those that utilize the other video transfer formats.

Step 3
Choose a video data transfer standard best suited to your price range and needs. VGA is always the safest bet, but if you are purchasing a new laptop computer, try to find one within your budget with an HDMI output as well, as it will provide the best quality and allow you to transmit audio without the use of extraneous equipment. S-Video inputs are found on nearly every LCD and Plasma television, meaning that if you are giving your presentation connected to a television rather than a projector, this is a viable option as well.

Step 4
Make sure you know how to tell your computer to recognize that you wish to use a projector as a secondary video output device. On Windows-based laptop computers, this usually involves pressing the "Function" (or "Fn") key, followed by one of the numbered "F" buttons along the top of your keyboard. In most cases there will be a graphic of what looks like a television screen on the correct "F" key (e.g. "F4"), but if you aren't sure consult the manual that came with your specific model.

Step 5
Connect your video cable of choice to your projector and your Windows laptop, turn the projector on, and press the correct function key. If you have a solid video card, pressing the same key combination a second time will allow you to view your laptop's screen both on the computer itself and as a projected image simultaneously.

Step 6
Connecting a laptop computer to an overhead projector can be a little trickier. You will need a special adapter to connect to a projector using VGA, as well as the standard VGA cable. This is called a DVI-VGA adapter, and is available both from Apple and other electronics vendors. Plug the adapter to the DVI port on your Macintosh laptop, then plug the VGA cable into the projector and the adapter. Turn on the projector, then press and hold the "F7" key on your Mac. You will be up and running in no time.

Step 7
Try a dry run of your presentation using your own laptop and the same projector you will be using, if possible. It pays to be prepared, and your audience will be able to tell if you are fumbling around for the right function keys on the day you present. Your confidence will help you start your presentation off with a bang, and it will show.

Hope this helps

Need to get a torpedo projector to work with laptop


Unfortunately, there is no simple VGA-to-RCA adapter cable if you're connecting to a composite video input (usually colored yellow) or s-video input. VGA output is separate red, green and blue video and synchronizing signals, and they all need to be combined. You need a VGA-to-video converter to do this.

If the projector has component video input jacks, then you can buy a simple adapter cable.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using Fixya!
