    Sub out
    Audio out
    Audio in
    Video in
    VGA in

    I used the VGA connection from the projector to the laptop. It is a Win XP Pro machine and not recognizing any new hardware attached.

    Describe ALL the connectioms available to you.
    VGA should have worked I would have though unless you have the incorrect reolution set.
    Check Projector Manual/ for that
    Check also your Laptop Manual for Keyboard commands
    I seem to recall that there is a special key to press on the keyboard
    usually marked in blue on they Key edge
    but it can vary - check the manual.
    Or go to the Laptop Technical Support site.

Projector can't connect to laptop

We just solved a similar issue. Most likely your PC or laptop is currently set to a display resolution that is too high for the projector or is one that it cannot handle. Try setting your computer display to 640 x 480 or 800 x 600 and see if you can get the projector to work. If it does, then you can figure out the maximum display resolution you can use. Also consult your projector documentation for supported resolution modes.

For the PICO in particular, it looks like those are in general for small mobile devices (320 x 240 or less displays), and the PK102 model has native VGA (640 x 480) support with extended support for 800 x 600. You will not be able to use this on most modern computers except at the lowest resolution setting for the PC.

Connecting cinego projector to hp laptop

don't know much about the cinego ( resolution ect)

but on most laptops you will have a "F" button or function key near the top row.. mine is F5 that has 2 square icons to show 2 monitors, 1 black, 1 white, when your projector is hooked to your laptop, hold down the FN key probably lower left or right, and tap the F5 or f7 which ever has the 2 montiors on it, it should be a 3 position switch, 1..laptop only, 2 laptop and projector, 3rd position projector only.

that cingo is pretty low-end so you may have to goto display properties on your laptop and reduce the resolution to 800 x 600 or 1024 x 768.

if you can't get a setting that works, try the 3rd position with just the projector display on, and laptop display off, since your laptop screen is higher resolution it corrects a lot of issues.

Iamge from the previous projection from RGB still appears when i switch to Video mode. why is it?

Hi There

Looks like your Projector's Mainboard has locked the memory and is stuck.

If you can access the Projector's Menu - Reset the machine and switch it off.

If the problem still occurs , you will have to take your Projector to a Service Centre to have to Mainboard repaired.

This is 100% NOT a lamp issue.

SRC button on cinego projector will not read source


Three (3) things you can try:
1. Lower down the Screen resolution of your laptop as well as the Color quality and the Screen refresh rate before doing the Fn + F5. If it works, adjust thereafter;
2. Do a soft (Factory) reset of your Cinego in the in the Management Menu (credit to Cooljazz); and/or
3. it is just "slow" in sensing the presence of a VGA source as it cycles in its selection, internal DVD, VGA, Composite Video IN. Since it does not have a manual source selection, your only option is to really wait or ...Verify that "Auto Source Select" is enabled in the Management Menu (buttons-Proj/Setup then >/9) and "tap" the "SRC" button on the projector itself to manually initiate the input/source selection.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

PowerPoint Slide Show View Distortion

Well not knowing what is causing the problem, can i suggest a bit of an extreme but very effective method?

You will want to restart your pc before logging into the other account. That will allow you to rename it without problems.
Login to your laptop using an administrator account. Rename your profile to oldprofile.old or similar.

It sounds like its one of those lovely settings Microsoft likes to save in the \applicaiton data\ area of a profile.
