    Does your computer have a DVI, Composite or VGA port on it? These are the standard connections that are used to output video to such a device.

Projectors typically require RCA (yellow - round - single pin) or S-Video (black - round - multipin) connections. Look for a key on your keyboard that has a monitor symbol on it (sometimes 2 symbols - on/off). Once you have connected the projector and turned it on, tap the monitor key and you should see your desktop projected. I've also seen laptops where you need to enable the secondary display thru the 'Display Settings'.

Can i play the image which is Jpg format directly on projector saved in USB?


I started an answer to this post earlier, but my browser closed
Here we go-
Simple answer is yes, if your projector has a USB slot. If so, the ability to view it will be a choice in the projector's set up menu
If it does not have a USB slot, then it is still possible to view it using your computer
Step 1: turn off computer & projector, then get this type of cable (seen below)
Step 2: connect cable to the VGA ports on your projector & computer. On the computer, this is where your monitor us currently connected. It will only fit on the ports intended for this purpose, so don't worry about goofing it up
Step 3: turn both computer & projector on. Newer computers will recognize the connection automatically. For laptops, there will be a button to push (on the top row of keys usually). It looks like a monitor most times.
You may need to go into the projector's set up menu to specify which connection. It should say VGA. Select that and you will be able to project your computer/laptop screen.
Insert the USB media (thumb drive?) into the slot on the computer and on newer computers, a notice will appear asking you what you want to do with the newly inserted device. Select "view file/contents on drive", then choose the JPG file(s) you wish to view
Good luck & Let me know if you need further assistance

How do I use the function keys on my Eee PC to view picture through my video projector?


Connecting an External Monitor or Data Projector
You can switch to an external monitor or data projector by two methods. 1. Connect the external monitor to the laptop's video port, power up the external monitor first and the laptop. The video information will automatically switch to the external monitor. 2. If you power up the laptop first then you can switch the video output to the external monitor by pressing the Fn key and one of the Function keys, depending upon your make and model laptop. You can also toggle between the external monitor or both LCD screen plus the external monitor or back to LCD screen only by pressing the Fn key plus one of the function key a few times. Here is a list of key combinations for some of the laptops :- IBM ThinkPad = Fn + F7 HP and Compaq = Fn + F4 Toshiba = Fn + F5 ASUS and Dell = Fn + F8

I just checked the specs on your Benq PB 6110, which has a native resolution of 800X600 and will simulate 1280X1024. When you connect it to your computer, the computer goes to 800X600, right? That is the resolution of the BenQ. How high a resolution do you want? THe highest I have seen in projectors is 1024X760, which is not that much higher. Projectors seem to lag behind monitors and Plasma/LCD/LED TVs for resolution. They must have a very small market share therefore low developement.

I cant get signal from my computer


Many computers don't automatically turn on the external VGA connector when you hook up the cable to another monitor. One of the function keys (often F5, but not always) will turn on the connector. Usually the key has a symbol on it that looks like a monitor screen. When you press that key it will turn the external VGA connector on or off. On some computers the sequence goes laptop screen on and external monitor off, laptop off and external on, both on. Once you have the external connector turned on your projector will work properly.

Half of monitor screen shows on the projector.


You will need to set your computer to the correct display properties.
This you can do by either going to presentation mode.
Alternatively,
on Window XP you can simply go on to your desktop and right click > go to properties>go to setting> press display 2 and set the screen resolution as per your projectors resolution and enjoy.
( for information: display1 is the resolution meant for your computer).

No signal


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, the "No Signal" error message indicates just that, it is not receiving anything or that the signal it receives is beyond its capacity. With this in mind, pls check:
  • the cable connection from PC to Projector;
  • that the PC is set to display on a 2nd monitor, TV or Projector depending on the capability of the PC's video card (Twin View or Dual View); or
  • as main monitor;
  • lower down the computer's Screen Resolution and/or Screen refresh rate.
Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
