We can't seem to get the picture from the laptop to the projector


For Windows 7 and Vista- Close or minimise all windows, right click on the desktop and select "Screen Resolution". Press the "Detect" button and if another display comes up, on the dropdown menu labelled "Multiple displays" select either:
"Duplicate these Displays" to show the same image on both screens

or

"Extend these displays" to have 2 separate displays (the position of the second display can be changed by dragging the box labelled "2"

For Windows XP - Close or minimise all windows, right click on the desktop and select "Properties" and then the "settings" tab. Click on the greyed out box labelled "2" and Tick the box labelled "Extend my desktop onto this display". click apply.

We have a Sanyo ProxtraX multiverse projector. We have used it a number of times but recently, it will not see the laptop. It turns on but cannot find the laptop signal. I have tried different laptops...


Have you tried the "Function and F key" trick? On most laptops it's the F6 key but on your unit look for a picture/graphic of a computer screen...or maybe text saying, "LCD/Monitor". To activate this function you must press and hold down the blue "function" key and also press the F6.

The F6 key has three states...1 - only laptop screen, 2 - only external monitor (video projector), 3 - both the laptop screen and the externally connected monitor and/or video projector.

I can not connect laptop with projector


Hello,

Instructions
Things You'll Need:
Laptop computer equipped with a VGA, S-Video or HDMI output.
Overhead projector with the applicable input.
VGA, S-Video or HDMI cable.
Software to ready your content for presentation at the correct screen resolution.
DVI-VGA adapter, if you are using a Mac.
Step 1
Learn the different types of video outputs your laptop may or may not support. The three most common types of video outputs used with overhead projectors are Video Graphics Array (VGA), Separated Video (S-Video) and High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI). You need to make sure your laptop has the correct output corresponding to an input on the projector you will use.

Step 2
Weigh the strengths and weaknesses of each types of video input and output. VGA projectors are the most common type, indeed it is likely that any projector in current use will have a VGA input. However, VGA video offers the lowest resolution of the these three types. S-Video offers a higher resolution than VGA, but is prone to screen flicker, especially when you are connecting your laptop to a power supply while presenting, rather than running off the battery. HDMI offers the highest picture quality of the three, and supports audio data transfer as well. However, know that HDMI-equipped laptops and projectors are more expensive than those that utilize the other video transfer formats.

Step 3
Choose a video data transfer standard best suited to your price range and needs. VGA is always the safest bet, but if you are purchasing a new laptop computer, try to find one within your budget with an HDMI output as well, as it will provide the best quality and allow you to transmit audio without the use of extraneous equipment. S-Video inputs are found on nearly every LCD and Plasma television, meaning that if you are giving your presentation connected to a television rather than a projector, this is a viable option as well.

Step 4
Make sure you know how to tell your computer to recognize that you wish to use a projector as a secondary video output device. On Windows-based laptop computers, this usually involves pressing the "Function" (or "Fn") key, followed by one of the numbered "F" buttons along the top of your keyboard. In most cases there will be a graphic of what looks like a television screen on the correct "F" key (e.g. "F4"), but if you aren't sure consult the manual that came with your specific model.

Step 5
Connect your video cable of choice to your projector and your Windows laptop, turn the projector on, and press the correct function key. If you have a solid video card, pressing the same key combination a second time will allow you to view your laptop's screen both on the computer itself and as a projected image simultaneously.

Step 6
Connecting a laptop computer to an overhead projector can be a little trickier. You will need a special adapter to connect to a projector using VGA, as well as the standard VGA cable. This is called a DVI-VGA adapter, and is available both from Apple and other electronics vendors. Plug the adapter to the DVI port on your Macintosh laptop, then plug the VGA cable into the projector and the adapter. Turn on the projector, then press and hold the "F7" key on your Mac. You will be up and running in no time.

Step 7
Try a dry run of your presentation using your own laptop and the same projector you will be using, if possible. It pays to be prepared, and your audience will be able to tell if you are fumbling around for the right function keys on the day you present. Your confidence will help you start your presentation off with a bang, and it will show.

Hope this helps

CP-X260 LCD Projector: when i connected to my laptop the projector does n...


By nothing do you mean it does not power on? Is your laptop on? Does it have an image on the screen?

Most of the time, this is easily fixed by holding down your function key and pressing one of the F keys. Different laptops use a different key, but you are looking for the CRT/LCD key.

So, press and hold function + CRT/LCD and you should notice a change. Be patient as it sometimes takes a moment. There are 3 settings here. One will give you a display on your laptop but not the projector. One will give you a display on the projector but not the laptop, and one will give you a display on both. So if the first time you press function + CRT/LCD you get a change but it's not what you need, try it again and cycle through until you find what you want.

What settings should I use for acer x1260 to dell d520 laptop? Projector says "no signal" - have changed avg cable - no difference.


The max resolution on the projector is 1024x768. But the problem you're having sounds suspiciously like the laptop not sending out a video signal...you have to *tell* the laptop to send out an image to an external display. On one of the function keys, like F4 or F8, there will be a small TV screen symbol. You have to press and hold "alt" and then press the key with the symbol. The initial setting is obviously for the laptop only. When you press the keys for the first time, you tell the laptop share the picture with an external display (your projector). Press the keys a second time, and the laptop ONLY displays an image from the projector. And, press the combination again, you're back to just the laptop.The DLP projector should have a menu selection for "auto" under the input menu...that is the easiest and most trouble-free setting. Whatever you connect to the projector, it automatically seeks out the signal and connects to it.---Rick

Presentation mode is off appears when you try to FN F8 Dell Latitude E6500


check device manager to be sure your video card is functioning properly. If it looks good in device manager, shut off the pc, connect the external monitor/projector to the pc and start up the pc with the external device powered on. if no video from external device, then the video card/external connector is probably bad. Contact Dell if in warranty.

maybe the fn/f8 keys are not working. Can you get a safe mode boot prompt by repeatedly pressing the f8 key immediately following power up on the laptop? if no, f8 key is likely dead and you need a new keyboard. If f8 is okay, does the fn key work with other functions? if no, fn key is bad - new keyboard.

Hope this helps!
