Projector Image Cut Off, Native Resolution Not Recognized by PC

When connected to a PC and set to the native resolution of 1280x720, the projector image is cut off on the left and cannot shift far enough to the right (under projector settings) to correct the image. The PC also does not recognize 1280x720 as the native resolution of the projector (it usually either recognizes 1024x768 as the native resolution, or does not recognize a native resolution). The projector displays properly (is not cut off) when set to 1280x768 (or 800x600, etc.). It seems that the projector only has problems displaying the native resolution properly.

After you connect the laptop and the image shifts to the right, press auto adjust on the remote and the image will get OK.
If not try resetting the projector settings to factory [not the lamp settings]
this should solve the problem
if not change the main board

SOURCE: pc to projector fuzzy as hell, all diff resos.

Well the ax-100 can only display 1280x720. If you output anything different - lower or higher - the image needs to be rescaled, which inevitably makes it a bit fuzzy.

SOURCE: My ProShow Gold production on my ACER laptop (set

I have asked a couple of gurus I know and they seem to think the solution is to set the laptop to aspect ratio 1024x768 to match the projector. Then change it back later. I am not in the position to test this unless it happens again with another projector somewhere else. What I wanted to know was how should they have set their projector. G.

Sony vpl dx 100. Why does it indicate frequency out of range when I connect my VGA cable to the the port?


Sony VPL DX 100 is a native XGA projector [1024x768]
so if u connect to a PC that has higher resolution than XGA , it will not be able to project and will show u out of range .
you will need to reduce the screen resolution in your resolution settings to XGA and the problem will be solved.
On a Laptop however, the graphics card should automatically identify the native resolution of the projector and adjust the screen resolution that is being sent from the graphics adapter.
you can also repalce the VGA cable and check if the problem gets solved as a broken pin or cable internally can also result in a similar problem!

Frequency is out of range


What are you sending to the projector? The ES4 is a native S-VGA resolution machine. This means it has a 4:3 display panel with a pixel count of 800x600. It will accept higher resolutions, but there may be some combinations that are 16:9/16:10 that the projector isn't happy with; specifically 1080p @ 24/50/60Hz. It maxes out at 1080i 60Hz. So if you are connecting a laptop with a native resolution of 1920x1080 then the projector will struggle.

The other thing you should do once you get a signal working on the projector is to set the laptop output to the projector's native resolution. This will give the crispest image.

Toggle the laptop display (Fn + appropriate F key) so that laptop screen is off and the projector is the only thing getting a signal. Then right click on the Windows desktop area, and then select Graphics Properties from the sub menu. Change the settings from there.

It is necessary for you to make sure that the native resolution of the projector match the laptop's native resolution. If after changing the resolution, the image is still bounces back to laptop then you will probably need to completely disable your laptop display so the image is shown only on the projection device.

Swap the two MP771s over and see if the fault lies with the projector or not. If the problem image swaps over then your two projectors are behaving differently. Perhaps a factory reset might help.

I'd say that it is more likely that the problem lies with your graphics card settings rather than the projector. Projectors, in general, have a native resolution. Most of them will accept non-native resolutions and interpret them to fit, but the actual resolution of the projector can't change. Triple Heads to Go are quite tricky to setup. You should check the TH2G manual and see that the screen resolution which you are attempting to use is supported, the analog versions are quite particular.

Adjust your graphics card settings and see if that helps (This is where you will find the solution!). You need to compare possible settings with those of the TH2G and the projectors (The projectors get 1/3 if the TH2G accepts and splits the signal properly). You should be able to view the actual projector input settings to see how they compare to what you expect.
Start at the lowest 12x3 screen resolution that the TH2G will accept and see if that helps. Make sure refresh rates are set to match too.
It can be a fiddly process, however once you find the correct settings then it should all work great for you.

Hitachi CPS-220 is saying 'RGB is out of range' when connected to PC.


This would indicate that the display settings on the PC are outwith the acceptable range of the projector.
To solve this, right-click on a clear part of your PC desktop and select "Graphics Properties" (in Vista). You then need to adjust the display settings. That is a very old projector which will accept a maximum screen resolution of 1024 x768 pixels. Try changing that 1st. If it doesn't work, keep that screen resolution and also adjust the refresh rate in Hz until you get an image.
The native resolution of that projector is SVGA (800 x 600 pixels).

I just checked the specs on your Benq PB 6110, which has a native resolution of 800X600 and will simulate 1280X1024. When you connect it to your computer, the computer goes to 800X600, right? That is the resolution of the BenQ. How high a resolution do you want? THe highest I have seen in projectors is 1024X760, which is not that much higher. Projectors seem to lag behind monitors and Plasma/LCD/LED TVs for resolution. They must have a very small market share therefore low developement.

Screen adjustment


Adjust the screen area of the computer’s display settings to match the projector’s native resolution. Refer to your projector documentation for the optimum or native-resolution setting for your projector model. If you can't find this information or are uncertain, most projectors support a maximum of 800 x 600 pixels.
• With certain laptops, you might need to disable the laptop display to obtain the best image, especially when the native resolution of the laptop exceeds the native resolution of the projector.
• Font smoothing will automatically generate a cleaner font outline, both on your laptop and on the projector. To apply font smoothing, do the following:
1.
In Control Panel, open Display.
2.
On the Appearance tab, click the Effects button.
3.
In the Effects dialog box, select the Use the following method to smooth edges of screen fonts check box, and then select Standard or ClearType in the list.


If the projected image is dimmer than it was on the laptop, check your projector documentation for information regarding lamp timers. If the lamp life has expired, replace the lamp for maximum brightness.
If the projected image is not rectangular, try one or both of the following:
• Make sure that the projector is perpendicular to the viewing screen.
• Raise or lower the projector.
If the projected image displays vertical lines, "bleeding," or spots, try one or more of the following:
• Adjust the brightness of the image.
• Check the projector lens to see whether it needs cleaning.
• Adjust the sync and tracking on the projector.
