Powerpoint video won't play on screen

Epson powerlite C50: When I play powerpoint presentation videos inserted in the presentation they show up blacked out on the screen. The video continues to play but only audio is heard. It shows up on laptop playing normally. When I access the video by itself it plays on the screen, not using powerpoint. Also does the same with the Fn + 4, with nothing on computer screen.

How do I forward the slides of a powerpoint presentation using the remote?


Make sure that you connect a cable (usually the USB cable is supplied with the projector ) from the computer to the projector. Once communication is established, normal PPT slide advancing is done by pressing the up/down arrow keys (depending on the remote control layout)

My dell d630 laptop wont recognize my infocus lp70+ remote control and I can't advance my powerpoint slides with the remote control


Here's what the User's Manual says:


Using the Remote Control

To advance PowerPoint slides with the projector's remote, you

must connect the USB cable on the projector's computer cable to

the computer. See page 8 for more information.

Point the remote control at the projection screen or at the front or

rear of the projector (not at the computer). The range for optimum

operation is about 30 feet. If you point the remote at the

projection screen, the distance to the screen and back to the projector

must be less than or equal to 30 feet. For best results, point

the remote directly at the projector.


If you are displaying presentations in Microsoft® PowerPoint®,

you can use the remote's Previous and Next buttons to navigate

through your presentation while in Slide Show mode.

Hitachi cp-s240 remote question


Hitachi data projectors are able to function as a mouse using either the USB port or the control port located on the back of the projector.

However, they are not intended to be used as a remote presenter. This means that although you can use the remote as a mouse, you will not be able to change slides in a full screen slide show using powerpoint.

I recommend the Targus remote presenter for this purpose. This device will function as a mouse, pointing device, and will allow you to change slides in powerpoint. In addition, it's inexpensive, wireless, and small enough to easily fit in your pocket.

Switching to one program to another while on lcd projector


Alt-tab is the keyboard shortcut for switching between programs in windows.That will still show up on either display, though. There is a way, when two displays are hooked up, to display a power point presentation on one display and use the other for configuration. The only problem is that you'll still have to switch to movie maker, which may or may not support this feature (i'd imagine not).

Your best bet may be to actually export your movie maker video to a file then insert it into your power point:

see this tutorial:

Good luck!

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.

Two possible solutions:

1) The video mode is set to Component/RGB instead of VGA.

2) The cable you have may have a break inside of it.

Epson projector from computer & powerpoint


You need a wireless presentation remote that has a transmitter that plugs in to the back of the computer. This can be used to advance the slides. Make sure you get one that states the distance you need.

Let me know if that helps.

Epson Powerlite 1815p screen projector - DVD playback video jerkiness when there is motion in the video


Hi,

I am assuming that the DVD plays normally on the display of the Dell 745.

Then the issue(s) may be with the:
1. Networking configuration/set-up of the Dell and/or the Epson;
2. ethernet cable;
3. configuration/set-up of the projector or the Epson itself.

A couple of things you can try:
1. Optimize your networking throughput.
1.1 Increase your PCI Latency Timer to 128 or 255 in the Dell's BIOS/CMOS setup (if present);
1.2 Try running DRTCP.exe and/or TCPOptimizer.exe appropriate to the Dell's OS;
1.3 Disable all other networking activities on the Dell. This may include auto updates, security/antivirus checks, etc. while running the DVD;
1.4 Slim down Dell's startup programs to bare minimum;
1.5 Increase your OS' swap file to roughly double your onboard memory
2. Try running a hub midway between the Dell and the Epson.
3. Verify that it is not the Epson that is problematic by playing a video source to the projector’s Video or S-Video port. If it is, then you have narrowed down the problem to the playing capability of the Epson.

Alternately if all else fails, perhaps you can try using:
1. a DVD player to the projector’s Video or S-Video port; and/or
2. a USB external DVD drive or a CompactFlash card (with a copy of the movie) direct to the 1815p
while settling the main issue.

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

Good luck and kind regards.
