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..................

My tx-nr905 recievers output audio goes out when connected to my projector and a dvd player, but its ok with any other output combo; proj/sat or tv/dvd or tv/sat etc..... bought new about 4 yrs ago, has...


Semantics maybe, but sources are INputs. OUTputs are speakers, audio to other devices.

A DVD is always an INPUT.

So what's different? IOW, how are the DVD and Projector (Really? It uses a video OUTput) connected for audio? Have you looked at the manuals? Digital sources must be assigned, for example.

Connecting tv/cable box


Hi,

This is a fairly common problem with this model. In most instances, it is just "slow" in sensing the presence of a video source as it cycles in its selection, internal DVD, VGA, Composite Video IN. Since it does not have a manual source selection, your only option is to really wait.

Verify that "Auto Source Select" is enabled in the Management Menu (buttons-Proj/Setup then >/9) and "tap" the "SRC" button on the projector itself to manually initiate the input/source selection.

Verify that you have done the connections correctly. Yellow RCA connector is the video while the red & white are the audio. Of course the Video input should be connected to the Video output, same goes for the audio. Please refer to pages 22 & 23 of the user's manual for more detailed instructions as well as illustrations.

A couple of things to consider: it is not HDTV capable and pls don't loose the remote.

If the unit will not select a source after some time (minutes), perhaps your best bet would be to seek replacement.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

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!
