    I have the same problem ... periodically, and more frequently when the
    unit gets hot. I just tried changing the Filter to see if that
    will keep it cooler (it's been a while anyway).

    If this doesn't work, I'll probably end up taking it to Sony repair.

VGA-HDMI connection fail on Acer projector using adapter

You don't say whether or not the "adapter" is simply a gender-changer, or if it actually converts the digital signal from the HDMI port to an analog one for the VGA port. Some monitors have both analog and digital input capability and can automatically adapt to the the digital signal, even if applied to the VGA (analog) port. Other devices are not so smart and need an actual digital-to-analog converter style adapter.

PJ-TX300 suddenly not detecting HDMI input

I think that its a port issue, if all the other ports are working but hdmi is not then one of the pin on the circuit board may have come loose. I have the same issue. Could try to solder it back on or use a glue gun. let me know if this helps?

Optoma 65hd display menu empty

Which input are you using? Some models will disable certain controls when using the HDMI or DVI inputs. Just to troubleshoot, try switching to a different input (composite video, s-video, or component) and see if the controls re-appear.

You might have to change the input or start playing blu-ray disc and then change input via the remote to your projector. Make sure it's HDMI out on blu-ray if choice is given and HDMI in on projector.

Words on screen can be seen

In the picture there is a check box labeled "overscan"
Uncheck it.
If that doesn't work... What input are you using? This can also happen with the incorrect DVI or HDMI to M1-D adapter. If you are using the M1-D computer input try using the composite input. If you are using the computer with a computer source try changing to the external monitor screen resolution or aspect ratio.
