Question about ViewSonic Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

Computer screen on, Projector off

What do I need to do, if I do not want to take the cables off between Computer and ViewSonic - I want to leave them all connected. But when I turn the ViewSonic off, my computer screen turns off, too. Is there a setting where I can turn the Projector off, without losing my computer screen view? Thanks so much for your help

If you are running Windows 7\8:
Leave the ViewSonic projector on.
Right click anywhere on the desktop and select "Screen Resolution".
In the display column, it will give you an option to select your computer monitor, the ViewSonic, or to clone the displays.
Select your computer monitor display only.
Shut off the ViewSonic projector.

If you are running Windows XP:
The process is basically the same except you find the settings under Control Panel > Display.

Green screen on VGA with Viewsonic PJD5122


VGA is separated analog signals in Red, Blue, and Green. Under normal cases, you'd be able to change the cable, source, or input port and resolve the issue. Unfortunately, if the green tint persists with all input ports on the projector (The two blue ones are Input, the black one is output. There is a potential that attaching input to the black output port could have caused the damage), different sources, and different cables, then it's likely a problem with the projector hardware itself and would require warranty service or otherwise repair or replacement of the projector. If you have an alternate way the projector can be attached, then try that (Such as SVideo), otherwise there may not be any good solution in this case short of checking the guts of the system.

Make sure you have all drivers and software necessary for the projector installed on your laptop. You can find them on viewsonic's website. Also go to Control Panel>Display>Connect to a Projector and insure all settings are correct. Let me know if you run into problems.

you might need to turn off your computer .
then connect the data projector
and turn on data projector
then turn on computer
hopefully it detects the data projector is connected and switches windows to duplicate projection
On my P.C. F4 key in windows Switches the display manually to duplicate, alternate screen or pc screen only or projector screen only.
As I am not familiar with Apple this support article below might explain the switching of display outputs available on Apple Mac.

The projector shows slides as purple but computer has the right colours?


Check your cable...you are missing one of the primary colors. you could have a bent/broken pin on either the projector port or the cable or laptop port. this would be the VGA connection.

On a laptop you have to activate the VGA output with a key combination, usually Fn & F3. The appropriate F-key will have a symbol of a monitor on it.

You may also need to change the screen resolution to a smaller size to suit the projector.

Projector will not detect a Dell computer


Computers do not generally send an RGB signal, you should be connected via a VGA cable between the projector and the computer. The input menu on the projector should be set to VGA. The output of the computer should be equal or lower to the maximum resolution of the projector.

Viewsonic Projector PJ557D "Screen Flip"


Check the power settings o nthe laptop, go to control panel, power options. see if its set to turn off the screen if theres no activity. I doubt this is your problem but worth a try. Going back to the viewsonic picture means its not getting a signal. So either the cable may be faulty which is less likely, or it is a software problem. Does the screen flicker on the laptop when doing the same thing (if the projector is not connected)?

Dvd player to projector


Yes please.
You can connect it either thru the RCA Composite output(yellow) of your DVD or thru the S-Video or even thru the component out(YPbPR) connections. In the component out you would require three RCA cables and would give you the best possible picture.
Find a link below , which gives a review of the Viewsonic PJ 501.

We have a Toshiba TP50H95/TP55H95 Color Stream Projection TV that is 10 years old and we recently switched cable companies. Since then the picture is not filling the screen completely on bottom or on top...


A to expensive to fix part is going on the projector. Suggest you get a new one. I've owned 3 projectors over the years. The best one is a Viewsonic 7820hd. 3000 to 3200 lums brightness, short throw lens (104" screen at 12 feet from the projector) 1 HDMI input 1 RCA input 1RGB input and 2 computer inputs. Price varies- but I got mine at Tiger Direct 3 yrs ago for $488 bucks- the Viewsonic 7822 (2 HDMI inputs) is on the Viewsonic website on clearance or refurbushed for around that price. AND- They do a full 1080 HD and also 3D.
