Projector won't show picture

My projector will not show the picture when hooked up to a laptop or a DVD player. The lamp is not burnt out because it still shows the blue screen and the menu. We have tried the RGP cable cord and the S-video cord too. We have played around with seetings on the projector but still cannot seem to get it to work. Any suggestions?

Why does my epson emp 700 projector cut off after ten mins even when the fans are working

These models of projectors form Epson have a standby which the projector enters when it no longer senses video input. The fans will continue to run because they are cooling down the lamp which remains hot for a few minutes after it turns off.
This could be a problem with your computer, or dvd player, or whatever device you are using for your movies. Check to make sure these are working properly. Check to make sure that your dvd player or computer is still outputing video to the projector.
If this does not fix your problem, then the problem could lie with the projector itself. The projector fans may not be properly cooling the lamp, in which case the projector will turn off the lamp to ensure the projector is not damaged. To fix this, you could check if the fan outlets on the projector have become clogged with dust. If they have, definitely clean them out with compressed air.
Hope this helps.

I have a acer projector ph110, it telling me to replace the globe. Change the globe but can't get into the menu screen to reset globe hours. Try pressing the menu botton but it stll have the warning...

Hi, I had the same problem all you have to do is connect something to the projector like a laptop or dvd player so it has a signal. Once the picture comes up of what you are projecting from the laptop or dvd player you can enter the menu and reset the lamp hours. Hope this works for you if not please let me know.

Changed lamp and now turns on and only stays on for about 5 minutes and red lamp light stays on in an acer ph110 projector

Hi, what you need to do is reset the lamp hours to get the red light to go if it is a new lamp. To do that plug in a source such as a laptop or dvd player. When the display from the laptop or picture comes up go into the menu and reset the lamp hours I had the same problem. Hope this works if not let me know.

I can't get a picture when I hook my projector up to my laptop.


If your LCD or DLP projector displays no image, this could be a variety of problems. First, check that the projector has power. On the top of the LCD or DLP projector should be some lights. With power, those lights will be on. If it has power, check to make sure that the projector lamp is firing. If so, go to the source. Make sure that it is connected with a VGA cable or USB cable to your computer, or with an RGB cable, S-Video cable or DVI connection to your VCR/DVD Player. From a laptop computer, the VGA cable should be connected to the VGA out connection, and into the VGA in connection on the projector. Are both ends tight?

If everything has checked out so far, the solution probably lies with the external monitor port. Check this by holding the Fn key on the keyboard, then press the F7 key. (On some computers, the key might be F5 or F3. Try these if F7 doesn't work) Each time you press the Fn / F7 combination, you will cycle your display through the following settings:

* Press Fn / F7 once: The laptop screen only
* Press Fn / F7 twice: The projector port only
* Press Fn / F7 three times: Both the laptop and projector port
* Wait a few seconds after each time you press the key combination to let the LCD or DLP projector refresh. Nine times out of ten this will result in seeing your projected image.

Hope this helpout....

look at the lamp head on. an obviously bad lamp will have cracks in the mirror, the stem can have frosty,veiny looking blisters or bubbles, the mirror can have lots of bubbles. And sometimes there are just no obvious signs.

Problems with Projector Panasonic PT-L501XU after change the lamp

was this bought new or second hand?
There is a "Lamp Time" setting that can be accessd using your remote control, check this setting.
Look on page 40 and after that of your manual about ambient temperature bulb failure.

By powering off or hittign the reset button the bulb should stay on IF the projector is gettign a signal from a device to show an image. If the projector is not hooked up to a device, laptop, TV, etc. the bulb may turn off to save hours of operation.

Media player movie picture won't display

Yes, I have the same problem with a Dell Inspiron 700m laptop. I have never been able to show videos using two seemingly compatible devices. This is not a projector issue however, as my projector displays video DVD fine from this PC, only videos inserted into PowerPoint will not play. Using another computer it works fine. Imagine that, Dell selling two highly practical devices that are not compatible.
