Question about Dell 3100MP Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

I have a second- hand dell 3100MP projector which I use during church services to project songs and other material. Recently it has been showing a predominalty green image , particularly when showing pictures of varying images., and occurs when I use dedicated church projection software program or desktop images.. It is not present when i use a white background image in PowerPoint . When I bought the projector the lamp use was about 130 hours. I`m not sure if the buldb is going but warning lamps had not lit.

My church screen projector shows little bubbles on the screen and every time I put up worship songs or photos on the screen in church, you see bubbles, and It does not look good


If it's an LCD base projector, then you'll need to clean out the dust particles that have accumulated on the LCDs that will require you to open up the projector, which I wouldn't recommend if you're not too familiar as there are many components inside.

Hi, is Dell 3100MP Projector is compatible with windows 7 laptop. I am Having message " NO SIGNAL, CHECK VIDEO CABLE" with Windows 7 but with Windows xp, the same projector works fine. Can anyone...


Hi,
In most cases this problem is cured by enabling the external VGA (or monitor) ouput on the laptop. The quickest way is to reboot the laptop with the projector turned on and connected. Usually the laptop will detect an external display is attached and enable the port.
It is also possible to manually enable the external display port. It varies from laptop to laptop but look for the "Fn" key at the bottom left of the keyboard, usually coloured green or blue. You should see a row of icons on the top row of "F" keys which is in the same colour. Look for the one which is either a monitor, or possibly says LCD or CRT.

Hold down the Fn key and press the key you located in the last step. There is usually a delay of a few seconds and then you'll find something may happen. Usually the external output will be turned on alongside the local (laptop) display. Repeatedly following the last step cycles through all available configuration options, including both on, local on, local off, external on, and external off.
This should fix it. Make sure that the correct input is selected on the projector whilst doing this. It will be labelled on the projector and it should display the same input message on screen.

If your church recently purchased it, it would be better to refund your money or get a replacement. Its somewhat difficult to find parts for projectors, and when you do, its usually cheaper to replace the whole unit.

Dell 3100MP Projector - No Signal Check Cable


Make sure you have the right input source selected. It may be looking for a signal from some input other than the one you're connected to. Beyond that, if it truly isn't seeing the input then you'll need to have the projector serviced.

Can't get computer images to project


Hi, I have found out that you must have the laptop set to an external monitor, in the control panel, display area, click on 2, then you must have the projector turned on before you start the laptop so it can recognize that the projector is there. Also make certain that you allow the unit to cool off by turning the lamp off, leaving the fan on and open the door where the projection lens is located.

Bad SMT connector on main board


mmm. a very small tipped soldering iron
while working under a mantis pcb magnifier.
you'll need a steady hand.....
don't however try to remove the sm connector, this will probably only wreck the pcb. try to use small wires to make the connections and bypass rather than try to rescue the connector.

Shrinking Screen Display


It can be a problem with teh bulb...you may want to make sure that the fan is not shutting down when you power off the projector becsue that may shorten the life of the bulb,...the fan should remain on for a while to continue cooling off the bulb....it probably won't hurt to have use another fan pointing to the projector while in use...
