Question about Sony VPL-EX1 Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Blue Screen Alright guys, am new on here. My dad brought the projector home from work and I'm ttying to hook it up to my computer so that I can play games on a big screen! I have used a S-Video Cable to connect teh projector to my computer however, when I turn the projector on, all I get is a blue screen which says: "S-Video" "Auto" And this is all I have, I don't get the computer screen that I want. Why is this and can you tell me how to fix it? Cheers, Joel.

I have a sony vpl vw60 projector. When it is turned on it shows only a blue screen. I do hear the DVD playing but only blue is shown on the screen. Not sure of the problem. I do have a replacement bulb...

Check out your output, they all show blue until you hook something up to them, make sure you have it hooked up right. write a post and let me know what you have hooked up to it.

Select in menu input 1 analog RGB and adjust output resolution of Dell to 1024 x 768. this should work !
USB is only for mouse control with pj remote

You may have inadvertently switched your projector to a different input mode, or the mhz refresh rate, etc., Jon.

Dell 3300mp Projector No Signal found to Digital DVD

Guys, the projector doesn't do HDCP.  HDMI won't work.  You'll need to run over component or VGA.

Blue screen

Hi Guys,

I recently struck this issue with one of our PB6100's. To resolve I did the following:
  2. Under the Fan menu select "More Options". You should then be in the "Fac7 Submenu".
  3. Select "Hard Reset". Note that this will reset the lamp hours also!
  4. Power off & then on again. Test input.

The above worked for me. Hope it helps.

The projectors periodically go to a blue screen in the middle of a presentation.

are they hooked up to a laptop? we've had the same problem with that before. When hooked up to the laptop it goes to sleep or turns off. bringing up the blue screen. maybe change the settings in the computer.
