I have a Infocux X2. We haven't used it that much but the cord that connects the projector to the computer got lost so I replaced with a cord that looked similar. The laptop can tell it is connected to the projector because it makes the 'bong' noise if I disconnect. However, evidently the projector doesn't know it.
It displays the Infocus welcome screen. After that it searches and that's it.

Re: Infocus X2 searches won't display desktop
Hello, In the projector's menu under "sources" make sure that the box to the right of "Computer" is checked. Also check the box at the bottom of that page that says "auto source select" or something. But it is the last thing on that menu and should be checked.

How about a little more information? Does the projector turn on? has it ever worked? What type of interface (VGA, DVI, HDMI, RCA) What type of computer (notebook or desktop)
That being said, double check your cable connections and make sure you tell your computer to look for the projector (Dell laptops used to use FN+F8 to switch from laptop to projector). Windows 7 has a menu choice "Connect to Projector". Mac computers - check system preferences and make sure the projector is ON before you plug it into the Mac.
The plugs on this model projector is very delicate, over time the solder around the plug will begin to crack. Until eventually the connection is lost. Another possibility is that the power supply has gone bad. Using another cord would not cause this. I can fix the projector if you'd like. My ebay screenname is gtitubro.
start the connecting all over again, by following the steps below:
1. Turn your computer off.
2. Connect the cable from the computer to the projector. If you want to
have your monitor to be hooked up as well, connect a splitter to the
video out port (DVI or VGA). You can also just hook the projector up to
the second port on your video card (If you have one) or if you have a
laptop, you can connect to the video out port on the back.
3. Turn the computer on and boot into your desktop.
4. Turn on the projector. Most projectors have an auto detect function,
that will detect a video signal and auto configure the projector to
display that signal. If you have a laptop, you have to hit a function
key to activate the second display. Usually this is FN Key + F5 or one
of the F Keys across the top of the laptop keyboard. It looks like two
squares, one empty and one with something in it.
5. Adjust the focus, brightness, contrast, and color on the projector.
6. Aim the projector at something white. Try not to aim it at something highly reflective.
7. Step back ... Load up your favorite game or video ... and enjoy.
Your project should work, after following the above instruction.
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.
try running your graphics card in separate screen mode im thinking you may have it in clone mode and is running both displays at the same res, or if the projector can handle it try running the projector at higher res
first try another computer cable. if same results, press the "auto image" button on the projector. if that doesn't work, press menu, select settings, then factory reset, and "yes". if you still have the same problem, the eca (main board) is bad.
