Question about Optoma EP716 Multimedia Projector

Comes on but won't project from laptop

I have used this projector many times and have never had a problem, my program always comes right up and displays with no problem. Today, it's like it's not connecting, it just keeps projecting the little screen that says "searching." Someone gave this projector to me and there is no Owner's Manual. I never needed one because it has always come on. I can't wait for a manual, I have a really important presentation to do tomorrow. Anybody have a clue what I can try?

    my laptop was connecting fine with the projector in class in the morning, but by last class, the project would turn on fine, but would not show the image from my computer, it just stayed at the "In Focus" screen. I connected the same projector to a different laptop today and it worked fine. Is it something in my laptop settings? I've tried two different projector cables and two different projects and always the same result.

Plug it into the s-video port and press the combination of buttone for your computer, that assigns a different monitor. Mine is FN + F5, yours could be different.

If you push the button one more time to flip the screen it should read properly, otherwise bounce it off of a mirror and adjust the keystone if it is a permanent mount.

InFocus Won't turn off, no powering down, and no projection


The 4805 does not have a power button it has a power switch next to the mains power connector but that switch has no lights near it.
If you meant the power light on the top of the projector right next to the menu button is yellow that is bad. it indicates that the main board is not working which would explain the projector always being on. also the led being orange means that both the green and red led's are on at the same time (this is BAD)
This is not a valid function for the led's. Another indicator that the main board is wacked. By the way if you received the projector less than 30 days ago you can file a claim with the eBay resolution center that the projector is not as advertised/Described in the listing. And you might be surprised when you get your money back! the "NO RETURNS"is null and void if there was any gross misrepresentation or deception in the listing!! i.e. Not as described...

Apple laptop and Toshiba digital projector not communicating


You need to TURN ON MIRRORING. Then everything displays the same on the computer & projector. This is an iPhoto limitation, which utilizes only 1 screen, not 2.

Toshiba LCD projector


always make all connections first !! after that : switch on the laptop, or else no detection of an external monitor/projection device is possible.
Please check also your bios settings, some can be set to force simultaneous display of external screen and lcd of the laptop.
some laptops also require ddc communication between external connected devices.
Try to use a full wired ( except pin 9) VGA cable.
