You will need to set your computer to the correct display properties.
This you can do by either going to presentation mode.
Alternatively,
on Window XP you can simply go on to your desktop and right click > go to properties>go to setting> press display 2 and set the screen resolution as per your projectors resolution and enjoy.
( for information: display1 is the resolution meant for your computer).

On the remote control of the projector, you'll notice an "Auto Image" button (or similar to it). What it does is synch the signal between the PC and projector. You might also want to check the keypad of the projector, normally there's an Auto button on there also.

My Windows XP is connected to my Epson Powerlite S3, but the screen is blue with the words Source: Computer (Auto) No Signal on it. When I click "Help" on the projector, it takes me to a screen...


'No signal' and 'unsupported signal' messages mean 1 of 2 things, either the VGA output is off(laptop) or the display resolution is set too high(laptop and desktop). Assuming the VGA cable you are using is good, try this:


Desktop: hook the computer back up too your computer monitor & set the computer to the basic VGA resolution. For windows XP, right click a blank area on the desktop, click 'properties' on the dropdown menu, click settings. Write down the numbers in the 'screen resolution' and 'color quality' boxes!

Drag the 'screen resolution' all the way down to then 'less' side. Then change the 'color quality' to the lowest setting. Click apply, then answer yes (the display will look UGLY - don't worry!!) Now connect your computer back to your projector. If it works, then the resolution you use on your desktop monitor is not supported on your projector. Experiment with different resolutions to see which one looks best on your projector. You will need to change the settings each time you switch monitor to projector.


Laptop: by default the VGA connector on your laptop is off. To turn it on, look for a blue symbol on one of your function (F1, F2, F3...) keys. It looks like an old TV with a line on both sides 'O' (F4 on HP) Press & hold the blue button (on the lower left of the keyboard, usually to the left of control ) and tap the bleu button you just found. Let go & give you're a computer a few seconds to change over. If the laptop screen goes blank, you found the correct button! The display image should now be visible. Repeat this 1 to 2 times to change it back to laptop display.

If you did not see the display on the projector, 2 other issues are possible. First, verify that the VGA output on the laptop is working - connect the laptop to a regular computer monitor & change the display resolution to the lowest settings (see desktop above), then try it again on the projector. If you cannot get an image on a computer monitor, your laptop settings may need to be adjusted in the same dialogue box as the settings. Monitor #1 is the laptop display, Monitor #2 is the external output.
Happy viewing :)

When i connect the projector to my computer, all it says is no input selected. i need help with this IMMEDIATELY!!!


make sure the computer has the output screen signal enabled on the external rgb connector. you can confirm this by connecting an external lcd monitor to the pc. swap the pc vga output to the projector.
then make sure the vga/rgb input source is selected on the projector.
also select the lowest resolution on the pc to start with. when a picture appears on the projector, then increase the pc screen resolution until it says it's not able to show it, and back off to the last setting that worked

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.

The projector is not showing a dell computer


Turn off the computer.

Ensure that the projector is connected to the computer and turned on.

Boot the computer.

There is a very good chance that you will now see an image as expected on screen.

If this doesn't work, you may need to manually enable the external VGA output of the computer.

Asuming this is a laptop, Look for the key near the boorom left of the keyboard labelled "Fn". On the top row of "F" keys you will see associated icons and lettering in the same colour. Look for one which says "LCD" or "CRT" or has an icon which may represent a monitor.

Holding down the Fn key, press the top row key whoch you have just lcoated and hold it for approx 0.5 second. Wait 5 seconds. If nothing happens, press it again. On most computers this will cycle through available monitors options which include in various combinations local screen on, local screen off, external screen on and external screen off.

If there is no cycling of screen on/off there is most likely a problem with the computers display drivers.

At teh projector, make sure that you can cycle through all available inputs. There should be an onscreen display to indicate which input is selected. This should correspond to the projector input on the body of the projector to which the computer is connected.

If this doesn't solve the problem, you should try changing the VGA (or DVI) cable as it may have a broken pin or other fault.
