Depending on your laptop video driver, you must make sure that you enable Clone mode in the Display Properties so that whatever you show on your desktop is also on the projector. Another thing to try is to make sure everything is connected and start the projector first until you see the screen and then power up the laptop. It would be helpful to know what you have for a laptop (model number and brand) if these basic suggestions don't help you.
Hope this helps you. Add a comment if you need more help.

Hello and welcome to FixYa

you correctly connected your projector to your computer

on your computer keyboard there should be a FN key and the numbers have a little small blue iicon representing something

since i dont know which type of laptop you are using i should assume that this little info is accurately correct

..... now find a number key with a blue picture that looks like a monitor now press FN+that picture

your laptop monitor should blink and the monitor should display something....

if it dosent try that same conbination again (FN+ #´r)

check me out if you have any problems

hope it helps..................

Hello I cannot connect my sanyo projector PLC-XU73 with labtop can anybody help me how to do it? andjust resolution of screen or what

Hello, Here is a step by step process on how to connect a laptop to your projector.

Start with projector and laptop turned off
Attatch all cables required, power and signal (VGA) for both proj and laptop
At the laptop end, ensure that the VGA is securely fastened using the screws attatched to the cable
at the projector you should notice there is more than one socket that the cable can go in, you need to make sure you are connecting to the INPUT not the OUTPUT.
Turn on the projector and allow it to go through it's start up process, once started select the input that you plugged the cable into (usually INPUT 1, PC, or VGA).
Turn on Laptop and wait for it to do it's start up process, log in if needed.
If by now you don't have an image on screen, you'll need to try and change your output arrangement.

This is very simple, but a bit awkward to explain so bare with me. To do this you need to hold down the 'Fn' key and press the correct F# key, this changes with every brand of laptop, so for instance HP and Compaq is F4, IBM is F7, Toshiba is F5. You may be able to tell just by looking at the symbols on your F# keys. If you don't know which it is you'll have to look it up (I don't know all of them sorry). So if you had a HP laptop you would hold the 'Fn' key and press the 'F4' key.

You should now have an image on your screen, if you have lost the image on your laptop's screen after doing the previous step, press the Fn F# again, and it should send to BOTH screens.

The projector that your using is designed to run a resolution of 1024x768. When the image came up on screen it should have changed it automatically, however if it didn't do this:

right click on your desktop and click on 'properties'
click on the settings tab up the top
under 'screen resolution' you should see a horizontal slide bar move that to 1024x768
Click 'apply'
If a box pops up asking you to confirm the setting click yes quickly or it will revert back.

I hope this helps,

Hi I have a Del laptop Latitude D620 with windows xp. I sometimes connect my projector (epson) and watch movies with no problems. suddenly I connected the projector and I get a message witch says source...

Try lowering the resolution of the laptop to 1024x768 from the display settings (start- > control panel -> screen / display)
Also if in the screen settings you see a grayed out display with a number 2 on it, right click and enable it, see if it helps, also lower its resolution to 1024x768, apply and then go to the advanced page, check the refresh rate make sure its 60.

Infocus projector 4805 connected to Toshiba laptop

Connect the external display port on your laptop computer to the projection system, and then turn on the projector. For information about connecting external devices to your laptop, see the documentation for your laptop computer.
Set the display resolution of your laptop computer to match the resolution of the projector system. First, on your laptop, open the Display Properties dialog box by using the Display icon in Control Panel, and click the Settings tab. Then, in Screen resolution area, move the slider to adjust the display resolution of your laptop. If you don't know which setting to choose, try 800 x 600 pixels; this is a common setting for many projector systems.

USB Driver for PLC SU70 Sanyo Multimedia Projector

Ok kumar i did some research on your problem.

Im not real savvy with projectors, but im going to try and lead you into the right direction. Now when you connect your projector to your computer, you need to go to your input settings on your projector and put them on "auto". In your product manual it says the computer should automatically detect the projector. Now if the projector isnt displaying a proper screen then you need to to go into the manual settings and adjust the settings.

Now i want you to goto this website:

This is the manual for your projector. Scroll down to the table of contents and click on the bold letters COMPUTER INPUT click that and read a little about the way your computer connects to the projector. I hope this helps, please let me know an update. thnx

There is no picture

just a shot in the dark. this reminds me 'bout a problem with a Optoma (or maybe it was a Ask) i fixed. In that setup menu (on the proj), i was able to adjust the sync signal on the input. (I don't mean the the screen refresh rate..)  Just tried gradually step by step. Worked then!
