Question about InFocus LP 650 Multimedia Projector

Open Question

LP 650 Fan is on but it's continuously "searching"

The Projector was working fine and now it won't connect through the Computer 2 VGA slot. It works fine through the the standard AV and Component connections though. Any Idea why?


Also, what kind of connection is the computer 1 slot?

    Looks like the Computer 1 slot is a M1 connection. Anyone know a store I can go to that sells M1 to VGA adapters?

    thanks

Try pressing the "auto image" button on the projector itself. This sometimes solves these types of problems.

SOURCE: Infocus X2 searches won't display desktop

Hello,
In the projector's menu under "sources" make sure that the box to the right of "Computer" is checked. Also check the box at the bottom of that page that says "auto source select" or something. But it is the last thing on that menu and should be checked.

Cheers

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).

Infocus 5000 won't recognize my computer


How about a little more information?
Does the projector turn on?
has it ever worked?
What type of interface (VGA, DVI, HDMI, RCA)
What type of computer (notebook or desktop)

That being said, double check your cable connections and make sure you tell your computer to look for the projector (Dell laptops used to use FN+F8 to switch from laptop to projector). Windows 7 has a menu choice "Connect to Projector". Mac computers - check system preferences and make sure the projector is ON before you plug it into the Mac.

Infocus lp770, trying to hook up to apple computer using the usb port? will this connection work to run the 770?


Hi!
You need to hook it up using VGA or HDMI for it to transmit information from your Apple computer to projector. You can check the Ports available at the back of your projector and you can Purchase cable needed from either Apple or Infocus or any computer store.
Hope this helps.

Hey my InFocus LP530 wont detect my pc/laptop, ive changed the auto sorce select to on but still nothing, so i changed it to off and tried all sorces manually but still nothing, Any ideas?


set the pc screen resolution to a low setting.
connect the vga output on the pc to an external monitor and check that the video appears on the external monitor. change the mode of operation on the pc until it does appear.
then disconnect the external monitor at the end of the vga cable, and connect the free cable end to the projector and auto source search for the vga input signal

My Canon LV-5210 displays no image for my computer. It has worked fine in the past. And it did not work a couple days ago and then it worked OK yesterday when we accidentently pushed the Input buttom. But...


If your 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 / F2 or F2 once: The laptop screen only
* Press Fn / F2 or F2 twice: The projector port only
* Press Fn / F7 or F2 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.
this should help you :)

Projector fires up, menus display, search finds the attached computer but all that displays is a blank screen, no desktop. We had a lightning storm last week that spiked a network switch and two printer...


try brand new cables. I think a spike would possibly do this, doubtful though since the projector itself is not fried. also try reflashing the unit with the newest firmware.

Connecting Dell laptop to Infocus LP820


The USB cable doesn't transmit Video. You need to plug in the VGA cable. The "DVI" port on the LP820 is not a a DVI but a M1 Digital port and won't work with DVI unless you get a converter.
