HP 6910P and analog out is greyscale

When I connect my HP 6910P laptop to a projector or monitor, the outputted image is always in gray scaled. When the laptop is connected to my docking station, my left monitor (DVI) is colored but my right monitor (Analog) is all gray scaled. I attempted to re-install the video drivers twice, but the problem persists.

How can i connect DirectTV to the hp 1740 monitor ?


Your HP 1740 Monitor uses:
  • One 15-pin mini D-sub analog VGA
  • One DVI-D (VGA analog or digital)
as for your DirectTV box you have at least an RCA and a HDMI to connect to Display devices that "DOES'NT MATCH" with your preferred monitor.

Your only chance to make it happen is to get a HDMI to DVI adapter (like this one: http://images.thomann.de/pics/prod/249861.jpg ) to output your digital box to your monitor.

My Windows XP is connected to my Epson Powerlite S3, but the screen is blue with the words Source: Computer (Auto) No Signal on it. When I click "Help" on the projector, it takes me to a screen...


'No signal' and 'unsupported signal' messages mean 1 of 2 things, either the VGA output is off(laptop) or the display resolution is set too high(laptop and desktop). Assuming the VGA cable you are using is good, try this:


Desktop: hook the computer back up too your computer monitor & set the computer to the basic VGA resolution. For windows XP, right click a blank area on the desktop, click 'properties' on the dropdown menu, click settings. Write down the numbers in the 'screen resolution' and 'color quality' boxes!

Drag the 'screen resolution' all the way down to then 'less' side. Then change the 'color quality' to the lowest setting. Click apply, then answer yes (the display will look UGLY - don't worry!!) Now connect your computer back to your projector. If it works, then the resolution you use on your desktop monitor is not supported on your projector. Experiment with different resolutions to see which one looks best on your projector. You will need to change the settings each time you switch monitor to projector.


Laptop: by default the VGA connector on your laptop is off. To turn it on, look for a blue symbol on one of your function (F1, F2, F3...) keys. It looks like an old TV with a line on both sides 'O' (F4 on HP) Press & hold the blue button (on the lower left of the keyboard, usually to the left of control ) and tap the bleu button you just found. Let go & give you're a computer a few seconds to change over. If the laptop screen goes blank, you found the correct button! The display image should now be visible. Repeat this 1 to 2 times to change it back to laptop display.

If you did not see the display on the projector, 2 other issues are possible. First, verify that the VGA output on the laptop is working - connect the laptop to a regular computer monitor & change the display resolution to the lowest settings (see desktop above), then try it again on the projector. If you cannot get an image on a computer monitor, your laptop settings may need to be adjusted in the same dialogue box as the settings. Monitor #1 is the laptop display, Monitor #2 is the external output.
Happy viewing :)

I've connected my laptop to the projector. It displays the image for a second and then displays 'Analog RGB searching'


Try setting the projector to VGA instead of RGB input if you can, you should be able to toggle though input modes.

Make sure that the resolution of the laptop is equal or lower to that of the projector.

How do I connect a projector to my G60


Hello

  1. Start by making sure the laptop and projector are both turned off before you start trying to make any connections.
  2. Locate the video cable -Usually your computer should have a svideo ort out. The projector should have either a hdmi or a RCA immput ports, thus you need a svieo to rca cable. Otherwise your laptop should have a VGA port oout where the projectorr should have a VGA port in.
  3. Make sure both ends are securely connected and tighten if necessary. Use a screwdriver or small pliers to tighten the connectors. A loose connection at either end will prevent you from displaying your presentation.
  4. Locate the audio cable and connect the audio cable included with the projector to the Audio Out on the laptop and Audio In on the projector. Make sure these connections are tight.
  5. Start your laptop and the projector. Make sure to check all connections to ensure they have been properly connected.
Really hope this can help you.

Kind regards

I have a Toshiba Satellite U300-13U. I cannot project from my laptop using my Optoma projector. I know how to use projectors and have necer had any problems with any other laptop. This isn't a FN/F5 issue,...


Check the video output by connecting an external monitor to the laptop. If you get a normal image on the monitor the the laptop video output is OK.
Use a different video cable between the laptop and the projector.
Maybe your laptop resolution is set too high for the projector.
This maybe a dumb question, is the projector video input set correctly?

Analog


Seeing the word "analog" on your screen means the monitor has recognized video input on the vga "analog" input connection.
Most computers output "analog" vga (15 pin) which must be converted to digital for a flat panel monitor to display the image.
Many LCDs now have both analog and digital inputs.

Multi-media projection without image


A great deal of the time DVD players are very restrictive on outputting to multiple sources due to copyright protection. In my experience, if you use your laptops function keys to toggle output (For example, on my laptop, I hit FUNCTION + F4 to cycle between LCD,LCD+VGA,VGA), you should be able to disable the laptop's LCD display, only outputting via the VGA cable. It's worked for me with my HP VP6111 and Windows XP in the past. Hope this helps!
