Connect laptop cable


Hi Anna,

It is impossible to connect to a projector with just a usb cable. You will need a VGA cable (for older models of projectors and laptops) or an HDMI cable which can be used with newer models.

Best of luck to you.

No signal on epson emp-x3 projector using susb cable


I'm assuming (because of the USB) that you wish to connect a computer to the projector.
You will need a VGA cable connected to the Computer input on the projector and the VGA output on your laptop.
If it is a laptop you may have to active the external monitor on your laptop. This is generally done by pressing the function key and F5. But this will depend on your Laptop and OS on the laptop. Look for a button amongst the F keys (at the top of the keyboard) that will do this on your laptop.
An example of this is in the photo.tech_av.jpg

After switching on the projector displays message 'searching for source' then 'no source found'. Computer is connected to Optima EP7155 using vga cable.


1 check VGA cable for damage (try other cable)
2 check connections
3 make sure you have resolution on PC is faling in projectors resolution range
4 if it is laptop, make sure you have it in external monitor mode (usually Fn + F8 keys)

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....

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.

succes

Toshiba laptop won't work with new optoma projector


-toggle the laptop display using the FN keys and F5 I believe. -lower laptop resolution to 800 x 600 -look in laptop display properties for lcd or external display settings, see if it (external crt) has to be enabled on the laptop first.
