Possible bent pins on the cable.
possible video card death in the computer.

but, most likely one of two things can remedy your problem : 
- 1 - try to reselect the source on your projector, so that it is detecting the port where your computer is plugged in. if that fails to solve the problem.........
- 2 - right-click on the desktop, and select "properties". then select "displays", then try the "advanced" tab, and mess around in there. can't tell for sure what options you will be facing at this point, since i don't know what graphics card is in your computer, nor do i know how that card is interfacing with your computer.

good luck, and i hope i was able to give you some help!!!!
(funny thing is, i was on here trying to solve a projector issue i am having, and saw your question pop up on the screen, and figured i might be able to help).

Look for the F-key with a square/icon of a laptop. Press FN+This button until you see your screen display show that it will be using your LCD + the output on your computer. Remember you need to hook both the VGA or HDMI out to the projecter as well as the USB cable.

My Canon LV-5210 displays no image for my computer. It has worked fine in the past. And it did not work a couple days ago and then it worked OK yesterday when we accidentently pushed the Input buttom. But...


If your projector displays no image, this could be a variety of problems. First, check that the projector has power. On the top of the LCD or DLP projector should be some lights. With power, those lights will be on. If it has power, check to make sure that the projector lamp is firing. If so, go to the source. Make sure that it is connected with a VGA cable or USB cable to your computer, or with an RGB cable, S-Video cable or DVI connection to your VCR/DVD Player. From a laptop computer, the VGA cable should be connected to the VGA out connection, and into the VGA in connection on the projector. Are both ends tight?
If everything has checked out so far, the solution probably lies with the external monitor port. Check this by holding the Fn key on the keyboard, then press the F7 key. (On some computers, the key might be F5 or F3. Try these if F7 doesn't work) Each time you press the Fn / F7 combination, you will cycle your display through the following settings:
* Press Fn / F2 or F2 once: The laptop screen only
* Press Fn / F2 or F2 twice: The projector port only
* Press Fn / F7 or F2 three times: Both the laptop and projector port
* Wait a few seconds after each time you press the key combination to let the LCD or DLP projector refresh. Nine times out of ten this will result in seeing your projected image.
this should help you :)

First time using infocus 1x projector with this laptop - installed drivers but there is no start up screen on the projector and will not display laptop image.


You have to tell the computer you hooked up an additional external monitor. Lower left on the keyboard you will see a "FN" key. Across the top, your F keys...look for an icon that looks like a monitor. Usually F5, F7 or F8. Hold down the FN key and select the F5 etc key which is the command to display the image through the external port. Doing this once displays image through the projector and laptop. Twice displays image to projector only and three times returns to display only on laptop again.

Cannot get the image to project from VGA port from my HP laptop


You have function key (FN) that you need to hold down while pressing the icon screen key or CRT key depending on the model of your laptop at the same time. If you toggle this 3 times each provides a no image to the projector or an image to the laptop screen or projector and laptop image.

Won't project; can't find signal


Make sure that your computer was turned on first (don't ask me why). Then hold down the Fn key while pressing F8. Hope that helps.

Power Point Presentation Using Sanyo Pro Xtra X Multiverse Projector


Don't forget to select the Fn key and F4 on HP laptops. It could also be the Fn key and F8 depending on the laptop brand. It is the apple key and the F7 key on a Mac notebook. On Laptops this will toggle the video to the aux port where the monitor cable connects to the projector. There are 3 modes. video on the laptop screen, video on the laptop and projector, or video to the projector only.
