I'm assuming (because of the USB) that you wish to connect a computer to the projector. You will need a VGA cable connected to the Computer input on the projector and the VGA output on your laptop. If it is a laptop you may have to active the external monitor on your laptop. This is generally done by pressing the function key and F5. But this will depend on your Laptop and OS on the laptop. Look for a button amongst the F keys (at the top of the keyboard) that will do this on your laptop. An example of this is in the photo.
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.
start the connecting all over again, by following the steps below:
1. Turn your computer off.
2. Connect the cable from the computer to the projector. If you want to
have your monitor to be hooked up as well, connect a splitter to the
video out port (DVI or VGA). You can also just hook the projector up to
the second port on your video card (If you have one) or if you have a
laptop, you can connect to the video out port on the back.
3. Turn the computer on and boot into your desktop.
4. Turn on the projector. Most projectors have an auto detect function,
that will detect a video signal and auto configure the projector to
display that signal. If you have a laptop, you have to hit a function
key to activate the second display. Usually this is FN Key + F5 or one
of the F Keys across the top of the laptop keyboard. It looks like two
squares, one empty and one with something in it.
5. Adjust the focus, brightness, contrast, and color on the projector.
6. Aim the projector at something white. Try not to aim it at something highly reflective.
7. Step back ... Load up your favorite game or video ... and enjoy.
Your project should work, after following the above instruction.
the light tunnel is collapsing and needs to be replaced. contact an infocus authorized service center to either send it in for repair or purchase the part and do it yourself. try av solutions in ny. they're pretty good.
Upon setting up your equipment it is very important that you turn on the projector first. You will see a blank projection image, now turn on the computer, (confirm your cables are connected properly). When using a lap top computer you may need to disable your computer's display screen. First locate the "function" key at the top of your keypad that reads "LCD", "CRT" or it may have an icon that resembles a computer monitor. By pressing the "FN" key and the corresponding "function" key you will be able to obtain the image from the projector only. This is known as "toggling" the image.
