Media player movie picture won't display

I have the Dell 2300MP connected to a Compaq Preserio 100 laptop. The image displays perfectly until I fire up media player to show movies from DVD / hard drive etc. The media player controls etc are all displayed perfectly normally but the actual video area is just a black rectangle. I have tried resynching , checked the screen resolution done all the recommended checks etc. Even tried different movie formats avi, mpeg etc in different resolutions with no luck. Has anyone had this problem and how did you fix it?? HELP

Re: 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.

You may need to check the settings of your mac book that permits you to output the signal to an external display. Also you may need to purchase a display port adapter (VGA, HDMI or DVI) that is compatible with the input connector on the projector

Does this Dell projector rotate the image? say,... if i wanted to wall mount it sideways. thanks

It is not recomended to mount it sideways as the air flow will be restricted and the picture will not rotate 90 degrees.
Hope that helps.

Dell 2300MP shows no connection after 15 min of work

that's a clear indication that you have a major heating issue inside the box..the internals are apparently overheating, as it will work after cooling down, right?

Searching for signal

There is an "Auto search for signal" setting on the projector settings menu. This may be turned off.

Multi-media projection without image

A great deal of the time DVD players are very restrictive on outputting to multiple sources due to copyright protection. In my experience, if you use your laptops function keys to toggle output (For example, on my laptop, I hit FUNCTION + F4 to cycle between LCD,LCD+VGA,VGA), you should be able to disable the laptop's LCD display, only outputting via the VGA cable. It's worked for me with my HP VP6111 and Windows XP in the past. Hope this helps!

how do you know the lamp is OK if no image appears? If it is in fact okay, be sure that the cables are properly attached (s-video in s-video, composite video in composite video) Lastly be sure the focus ring has not come loose and is distorting an image to nothingness.
