Question about Toshiba TDP-S8 Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Projector will not read feed from laptop

The projector will not recognise that there is a laptop on the VGA connection cable. I just keeps on searching for an input. Does this mean motherboard problems or something much easier? Projector light does come on and every thing else seems fine.

Ive recently bought a second hand Sony Cineza VPL-HS2 projector and it doesnt have an AVG input in the back. It does have a S-Video input, a 'video' input and a couple of audio inputs,


I think you mean "VGA" not "AVG". You can use the VGA to S-Video adapter to connect the laptop to the projector however you may get better results using a VGA to A/V (component) adapter to feed video into the RCA video input connector.

I have a Dell laptop ready to go with my first Power Point presentation. I check the projector out from the library and there are no instructions. I googled instructions and tried the advice: Push Fn and...


Look for the F-key with a square/icon of a laptop. Press FN+This button until you see your screen display show that it will be using your LCD + the output on your computer. Remember you need to hook both the VGA or HDMI out to the projecter as well as the USB cable.

I can't get a picture when I hook my projector up to my laptop.


HELLO,

If your LCD or DLP projector displays no image, this could be a variety of problems. First, check that the projector has power. On the top of the LCD or DLP projector should be some lights. With power, those lights will be on. If it has power, check to make sure that the projector lamp is firing. If so, go to the source. Make sure that it is connected with a VGA cable or USB cable to your computer, or with an RGB cable, S-Video cable or DVI connection to your VCR/DVD Player. From a laptop computer, the VGA cable should be connected to the VGA out connection, and into the VGA in connection on the projector. Are both ends tight?

If everything has checked out so far, the solution probably lies with the external monitor port. Check this by holding the Fn key on the keyboard, then press the F7 key. (On some computers, the key might be F5 or F3. Try these if F7 doesn't work) Each time you press the Fn / F7 combination, you will cycle your display through the following settings:

* Press Fn / F7 once: The laptop screen only
* Press Fn / F7 twice: The projector port only
* Press Fn / F7 three times: Both the laptop and projector port
* Wait a few seconds after each time you press the key combination to let the LCD or DLP projector refresh. Nine times out of ten this will result in seeing your projected image.


Hope this helpout....

What cable to i need to connect my InFocus projector to my lenova laptop?


Most laptops and projectors have VGA ports. So a monitor cable (not an extension cable) is needed; this is a cable with two male HD15 ends. The projector above has the following input available: Mini D-Sub 15 (Analog) (VGA), Component, and S-Video. If your laptop has DVI or HDMI you will need an adapter to go to the VGA.

I hope this helps.

Connected VGA cable to my pc and projector.Searching only


First off be sure that you plug into the input connector. As you look at the back of the projector it the VGA connector on the left. Also make sure you activate the VGA output of you computer (This mainly applies to laptops and secondary Video jacks on PCs).
