HP MP3 3222 Projector

I cant seem to get a picture on the projector when connecting to my TV. The blue screen on my projector keeps saying searching for VGA and then searching for composite. What does this mean? Am I missing a cable and how do I resolve this? Thanks

Re: HP MP3 3222 Projector

You dont connect a projector to a tv. you connect a video source to the projector like a dvd player or a video 360 etc, the projector then projects the item connected to it, like your tv does when you connect similar items. The projector has a couple of inputs available to it ..this is why it is saying searching VGA and Composite video etc

When linked to my laptop, the Sanyo PDG-DSU21N Projector will not project on the screen. It keeps searching for computer/ s video...etc. When I click on Menu, I do not have an option to select...

You need to send your laptop signal to your projector by pressing the FN key and the key that says CRT/or an icon of a screen (this is located at the top of your keyboard). 3l toggles will give you different images. i.e. projector image only, projector image and laptop image or just the laptop and not projector image.

Searching for signal

The problem is with the computer, not the projector.
There are special function keys, generally with blue lettering along the top row of your keyboard. Find the one that looks like a double screen or says "CRT". Also locate the blue function key [FN], probably on the lower left on the keyboard.

Press, and hold, the [FN] key and press the [CRT] key to change to dual screen.... and wait for several seconds for the projector to detect it. If it still doesn't work after you have waited, press the key sequence again (there are 3 different screen settings).

1. Computer Screen only (normal)
2. Projector Screen only
3. Both Computer AND Projector screens

PC connected to projector shows only in Blue

Are you saying that the projection is solid blue? Is it similar to, say, the desktop on the laptop screen? Try moving your mouse off to the right side of the laptop. Did it show up on projector? Exciting! Try dragging stuff over. Damn, this is sweet.

Projector says out of range

The native resolution on the 6100 is 800x600. I have had it recognize 640x480 and 1024x768 though. Check your computer to make sure the resolution is 800x600. Also set the refresh rate at 60htz, if the refresh is too high it can give out of range errors.
