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

    Has two parallel yellow-ish lines running verticle on the blue screen. This happened when it was dropped from about a 3 ft. Any clue as to the solution?

    When connecting vga in, the projector does not recognise the PC, or just flash the image from the PC for a while and then the "blue" screen apears - no signal.

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

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.
