    Thanks, I will have to try that tomorrow, it's too late tonight.



    appreciate the assistance. It sounds like it should work. I've had the projector connected to my computer in the past and had it working fine. Just didn't punch the right buttons.

1.
Connect the external display port on your laptop computer to the projection system, and then turn on the projector. For information about connecting external devices to your laptop, see the documentation for your laptop computer.
2.
Set the display resolution of your laptop computer to match the resolution of the projector system. First, on your laptop, open the Display Properties dialog box by using the Display icon in Control Panel, and click the Settings tab. Then, in Screen resolution area, move the slider to adjust the display resolution of your laptop. If you don't know which setting to choose, try 800 x 600 pixels; this is a common setting for many projector systems.

My Infocus 4805 is just showing the INFOCUS logo and not showing the picture from the TV. all connections are correct but no signal....help


Powering On
  • If your InFocus 4805 projector is having a hard time powering on or doesn't power on at all, it could be one of two things. Due to the extreme temperature of the lamp that causes the temperature of the projector to rise, every InFocus 4805 projector has a cooling system. Check your projector's cooling solution, as it may need to be replaced. Also check the projector's fan---if the fan doesn't spin, the unit will not turn on. If the problem is the fan, you'll have to get it replaced. You can do this at the same place you bought your projector.
  • The Lamp
  • If your InFocus 4805 Projector powers on but does not project any light, the lamp will need to be replaced. All projector lamps must be replaced at some point---how often usually depends on how much use the device gets. Simply order a replacement lamp, unscrew the old one and screw the new one in. The projector will then work like new.
  • Color Wheel
  • If your InFocus 4805 projector powers on and is displaying images but the colors on the images appear warped or are not in the proper places, your "color wheel" will need to be replaced. The color wheel is a small device that essentially acts like a prism. Light is projected through it and it displays the appropriate colors on screen the way they appear in the original video source. Order a replacement color wheel that fits your model and use your instruction manual as a guide as you swap the old one out and put the new one in.

    Infocus 4805 color mostly red when using componant cable


    This problem can be caused by several things.
    Most commonly a poor connection involving one of the rca component connectors or a failure involving the component output of the source.

    However what also works like magic is to press the auto image button that's on the projector itself and it will re-sync / re-define correctly the component source and presto it looks good again.

    A power brown out can cause this to occur and a simple "auto image" reset will fix it!

    Good Luck!

    The sequence is fn first then f5 simultaneously then release. However the problem may be the resolution setting on your computer's 2nd monitor output may be out of range (too High) for the 4805 Start with 1024X768 and see if that works.
