I've found my solution. My troubleshooting info said to go to "signal" and make sure that "auto" was turned on. However, I couldn't find "auto" when I first tried. There are two places where signal comes up. The second one is under "set-up" and that is where you turn "auto" on. It works perfectly now. I hope this helps. For the icons, make sure you have "mirror image" turned on in your displays preferences if you're on a Mac. Good luck.

broken lamp?? check for little cracks in the bulb bar.
If lamp is discoloured( dark grey), overheating is cause, no cooling after using the PJ.

Sounds like one of those problems only cureable with expert knowledge of for example Chroma feed , Lcd function , lamp luminence, not to be a killjoy but it sounds like this is one for the engineers an estimate should be free and even if you dont have it fixed you'll know whats wrong if you want to do it yourself providing you have adequate training of course ....

How do i eliminate the vertical green lines on the projected area?


Sadly the LCD/DLP wafer is failing, and the problem will progressively get worse. The DLP wafers can be replaced but it may cost as much as replacing the entire projector with an updated one. SORRY!

Projector has image on screen but cannot get connectrion to laptop to project pwerpoint


Be sure you have the right input selected. You might try Auto Search. Then toggle the laptop using the F8 or proper function key to display the output to the projector or in both places. Sometimes the laptop must be hooked up to the projector before the laptop is turned on. Hope one of these works.

I am trying to set up an InFocus LP400 projector with my computer. I followed the instructions using the CableWizard Lite cable for my laptop pc and get no projected image. I used the suggested port...


Hello,

start the connecting all over again, by following the steps below:

1. Turn your computer off.

2. Connect the cable from the computer to the projector. If you want to have your monitor to be hooked up as well, connect a splitter to the video out port (DVI or VGA). You can also just hook the projector up to the second port on your video card (If you have one) or if you have a laptop, you can connect to the video out port on the back.

3. Turn the computer on and boot into your desktop.

4. Turn on the projector. Most projectors have an auto detect function, that will detect a video signal and auto configure the projector to display that signal. If you have a laptop, you have to hit a function key to activate the second display. Usually this is FN Key + F5 or one of the F Keys across the top of the laptop keyboard. It looks like two squares, one empty and one with something in it.

5. Adjust the focus, brightness, contrast, and color on the projector.

6. Aim the projector at something white. Try not to aim it at something highly reflective.

7. Step back ... Load up your favorite game or video ... and enjoy.

Your project should work, after following the above instruction.

Good luck.

Toshiba laptop won't work with new optoma projector


-toggle the laptop display using the FN keys and F5 I believe. -lower laptop resolution to 800 x 600 -look in laptop display properties for lcd or external display settings, see if it (external crt) has to be enabled on the laptop first.
