after you connect the laptop and the image shifts to the right, press auto adjust on the remote and the image will get OK. If not try resetting the projector settings to factory [not the lamp settings] this should solve the problem if not change the main board
Most likely your PC or laptop is currently set to a display resolution that is too high for the projector or is one that it cannot handle. Try setting your computer display to 640 x 480 or 800 x 600 and see if you can get the projector to work. If it does, then you can figure out the maximum display resolution you can use. Also consult your projector documentation for supported resolution modes.
The PC interigates the projector when it is booted, that is why it works when connected for the second time. If you connected it up and after waiting for the projector to boot, then boot the PC, it may well save you the trouble of resetting the resolution to match the projector. Hope that helps.
This would indicate that the display settings on the PC are outwith the acceptable range of the projector.
To solve this, right-click on a clear part of your PC desktop and select "Graphics Properties" (in Vista). You then need to adjust the display settings. That is a very old projector which will accept a maximum screen resolution of 1024 x768 pixels. Try changing that 1st. If it doesn't work, keep that screen resolution and also adjust the refresh rate in Hz until you get an image.
The native resolution of that projector is SVGA (800 x 600 pixels).
You must enable external video on the laptop for one. Also, verify that the resolution is within the projector's range. Most likely, you do not have the external video connector enabled. There should be an "F" key with a symbol that looks like a TV screen. Holding down the function key and pressing that "F" key should toggle between the following 3 options:
1) External screen only
2) Laptop screen and External screen
3) Laptop screen only.
Toggle through the above as well and you should get the projector to work.
It appears from researching that the native res for the Benq is too low 800x600 so I will never get a good picture even though most of the images I install are at least 10meg originals. Also the new projector will work in a bright room the Benq will not.
Try the menu feature, then installation, image reverse until it gets to the correct position. Note, the Image Reverse rotates in quarters. You can also access the Menu feature from the projector. It just happened to me and as I was looking for answers and playing around with it, I fixed it!
