Question about ViewSonic PJ350 Multimedia Projector

Open Question

ViewSonic PJ350 will not display AVI clip in powerpoint presentat

I have an AVI clip (7meg, 21 sec, 320x240pixels, bitrate 88kbps, 8 bit audio, 15 fps, data rate 330 kbps) that I am attempting to run within a slide in a Powerpoint presentation. Whenever I run this slide, my projected screen turns black. Projector will not render the video. I even tried an s-video cable from the laptop to the projector with the same result.
I did run the video through Media Player, and it showed up on the top half of the projected screen but was "squashed". How can I show this video in a powerpoint slideshow presentation?

It can be a problem with teh bulb...you may want to make sure that the fan is not shutting down when you power off the projector becsue that may shorten the life of the bulb,...the fan should remain on for a while to continue cooling off the bulb....it probably won't hurt to have use another fan pointing to the projector while in use...

Yes please.
You can connect it either thru the RCA Composite output(yellow) of your DVD or thru the S-Video or even thru the component out(YPbPR) connections. In the component out you would require three RCA cables and would give you the best possible picture.
Find a link below , which gives a review of the Viewsonic PJ 501.

Are the air filters clean? It may have a faulty temperature sensor or indeed the temperature sensor may be disconnected.

I am trying to display a PowerPoint via an sdcard. Music and pictures show up from the card but the power point doesn't.


Bit difficult to answer without even the brand of the projector being mentioned, but the most probable causes are either that there is no provision in the projecotrs firmware to run a Powerpoint show, that you are using a version of poerpoint that is not supported by the particular projector (try saving it in the various different formats availavle in the "Save as" menu) or lastly, there's something wrong with the way your powerpoint presentation has been set up, and the projector is unable to resolve the issue

Computer screen on, Projector off


If you are running Windows 7\8:
Leave the ViewSonic projector on.
Right click anywhere on the desktop and select "Screen Resolution".
In the display column, it will give you an option to select your computer monitor, the ViewSonic, or to clone the displays.
Select your computer monitor display only.
Shut off the ViewSonic projector.

If you are running Windows XP:
The process is basically the same except you find the settings under Control Panel > Display.

Delay/ whitescreen when projecting video from laptop


1.
Connect the external display port on your laptop computer to the projection system, and then turn on the projector. For information about connecting external devices to your laptop, see the documentation for your laptop computer.
1.
Set the display resolution of your laptop computer to match the resolution of the projector system. First, on your laptop, open the Display Properties dialog box by using the Display icon in Control Panel, and click the Settings tab. Then, in Screen resolution area, move the slider to adjust the display resolution of your laptop. If you don't know which setting to choose, try 800 x 600 pixels; this is a common setting for many projector systems. YOURS sounds like 640x840.
3.
If you have audio in your presentation, connect a cable from your laptop's audio output jack to the audio input jack on the projector, and then test the volume by playing a file that contains sound.
4.
Start the Player on your laptop. If you want to only display the Player on the big screen, and not the desktop background, maximize the Player or set it to play your video using the entire screen (full-screen mode).

Powerpoint video problem


Does the videos play well in Windows Media Player? If not, it deciates that there are not proper codec installed on your computer.Try to download and install some new codec from official: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/forpros/format/codecdownload.aspx. Go for codec references at: http://www.codecguide.com/

If the video plays well, please try the following methods:
Method 1.
1. Put video files and the PowerPoint presentation in a same folder.
2. Re-insert these files to PowerPoint presentation.
Method 2.
Insert -> Hyperlink, choose the video file you want to insert, and then click ok. After do this, you can click the hyperlink to view the video when present the slide show.

Method 3.
 1. Display the slide you want to insert video.
 2. Click the View menu in the menu bar, and then choose Toolbars in its child menu, later Control Toolbox to let Control Toolbox displayed. Choose More Controls which seems like hammer.
 3. In the succeeding dialog box, choose Shockwave Flash Object. Your cursor will change into a cross-hair - draw a rectangle anywhere on screen
4. Right click the inserted Shockwave Flash control, and then click Properties.
5. Click the Movie property > type the full drive path in the value column (the blank cell next to Movie), including the file name (e.g. C:a.swf) or URL (e.g. http://www.a.com/b.swf)
6. To make the Flash play automatically when the slide is displayed, set the Playing property to True;
7. Finally close the Properties window and save your presentation.
Method 4.
Convert your PowerPoint presentation to Flash use some third party presentation tools, PowerPoint to Flash converter, for instance.

My ViewSonic PJ458D problem


This is known as 'cycling' and is common with mercury-vapor bulbs nearing end-of-life. When the bulb first starts, it glows dimly and grows in brillance. As the light grows, the pressure and temperature of the bulb also grows--increasing power demand. After a short while, the demand exceeds the ballast limit and the bulb extenguishes until the temperature (and pressure) drop again. Then, the cycle starts over. Bottom line: you need a new bulb (or, the correct bulb).
