SOURCE: connecting cinego projector to hp laptop

don't know much about the cinego ( resolution ect)

but on most laptops you will have a "F" button or function key near the top row.. mine is F5 that has 2 square icons to show 2 monitors, 1 black, 1 white, when your projector is hooked to your laptop, hold down the FN key probably lower left or right, and tap the F5 or f7 which ever has the 2 montiors on it, it should be a 3 position switch, 1..laptop only, 2 laptop and projector, 3rd position projector only.

that cingo is pretty low-end so you may have to goto display properties on your laptop and reduce the resolution to 800 x 600 or 1024 x 768.

if you can't get a setting that works, try the 3rd position with just the projector display on, and laptop display off, since your laptop screen is higher resolution it corrects a lot of issues.

SOURCE: Infocus Projector - synchronisation

Please make sure you are using a resolution and refresh rate compatible with the projector as the sync circuitry in projectors can sometimes be a bit touchy. Also make sure the signal you are providing does not consist of a totally black on the edges as this can confuse the image processor in the projector.  I would suggest looking up precisely what is the native resolution of the projector and what refresh rate it likes, if in doubt use 60Hz. The refresh rate can be set in windows by clicking the "advanced" button in the display properties pane. the pull down for the refresh rate is under the "adapter" tab, or the "display" tab I haven't used windows in a while so I forgot.  If you are sure you are sending the native rez of the projector and still having issues then there may be an issue with something not described in your question such as distance to the projector or environment like dimmed lights causing signal noise. If this solution doesn't take care of things please post more details like are you using VGA or DVI. Good Luck.

SOURCE: Connecting Dell laptop to Infocus LP820

The USB cable doesn't transmit Video. You need to plug in the VGA cable. The "DVI" port on the LP820 is not a a DVI but a M1 Digital port and won't work with DVI unless you get a converter.

Ive recently bought a second hand Sony Cineza VPL-HS2 projector and it doesnt have an AVG input in the back. It does have a S-Video input, a 'video' input and a couple of audio inputs,


I think you mean "VGA" not "AVG". You can use the VGA to S-Video adapter to connect the laptop to the projector however you may get better results using a VGA to A/V (component) adapter to feed video into the RCA video input connector.

Connect laptop cable


Hi Anna,

It is impossible to connect to a projector with just a usb cable. You will need a VGA cable (for older models of projectors and laptops) or an HDMI cable which can be used with newer models.

Best of luck to you.

HP Pavilion g series Overhead Projection


are you using the Nwiz (for Nvidia,) or the CCC (for ATI,) for the graphics adapter in your laptop, to set-up dual displays ? Some PC's you have to reboot once that is setup for the projector to come up. If not then they need to be in your sartup folder or RUN registry.

Ensure also that the projector is set to the correct "input" port for the connection you are making (S-video, HDMI, USB, DVI-D, VGA...)

Which cords and/or plugs should I use inorder to connect a projector to a computer


if your desktop doesn't have a standard vga socket then you can get a dvi adapter that fits onto the end of a vga lead. you will still need a seperate cable for audio as a dvi connection only does video.

Hp office jet 5610 wont print colors correctly


Some printer software that detect ink levels won't recognize a cartridge that's been refilled. They treat the cartridge as empty although you've filled them with ink. You can try removing the HP software that pertains to the printing functions only (not the scanner abilities). You can also do a Power reset. Remove the printer cartridges, turn off the power, remove both the Power cord and USB cord (if applicable) for 10 minutes. After reconnecting the USB and power cords, install the cartridges as you normally would. The printer should treat them as new.

My projector won't project anything. the computer recognizes the projector, but the projector does not recognize the computer. also when i turn on the projector the benq logo doesn't show.


Disconnect all inputs to the BENQ and power on. Do the lights come on as per normal operation. Does the lamp come on when the power button is pressed. Does anything show when the menu is selected.

I am trying to hook my notevision projector to my laptop so that i can show a powerpoint. I did not receive a cord with my projector. Which cords will i need? I received a usb to usb and VGA cord but i...


I tend to use the VGA cable. Once connected, switch the laptop on until you get to the desktop, then switch on the projector. Some will see the signal, if not, simoultaneously press your FN and relevant 'F' key to send the signal out to the VGA. You may need to do this 3 times, once to send to projector, one to send back to laptop screen and then once to send the signal to both projector and laptop screen. Sometimes this can take a short amount of time. You may want to change the projector settings to the VGA input so it doesn't constantly search for a source. If you still have problems, go into properties on your laptop and advanced. you m,ay need to unclick the box saying 'Extend to..........' (You should find what I mean from this, I am in front of a pc therefore the settings are slightly different.)

If nothing then works, it may be your video card.

Good luck
