Epson Powerlite 7300 Display Problem

We have a Powerlite 7300 that just started displaying a thin yellow veritcal line all down the right hand side of the screen. Does this mean a new cable, lamp, or possible something inside blocking the lens? Thanks!

PowerLite 83+ Multimedia Projector display is yellow.

Check the video connection. It's probably not making a good connection.

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 :)

Hi I have a Del laptop Latitude D620 with windows xp. I sometimes connect my projector (epson) and watch movies with no problems. suddenly I connected the projector and I get a message witch says source...

Try lowering the resolution of the laptop to 1024x768 from the display settings (start- > control panel -> screen / display)
Also if in the screen settings you see a grayed out display with a number 2 on it, right click and enable it, see if it helps, also lower its resolution to 1024x768, apply and then go to the advanced page, check the refresh rate make sure its 60.

Epson Powerlite 7300, misalignment of lenses.

By lenses I think you mean LCD panels, and yes there are glue down. there is a chance that the panel managed to unglue it self with time. another thing is you might just have a ghosting image. this indicates a bad lcd panel. What color seems to be out of alignment?

Display is not the right color

This generally means there is a fault with the cable between pc and projector. If you have a spare VGA lead try it and see if that fixes it.

Also make sure that the cable is tightly pushed onto both ends

Getting image from computer to screen


You could try prior to "hold the function 8 key" to:
  • lowering the Screen Resolution of your laptop; and/or
  • lower the Screen Refresh Rate.
Both may be found in the laptop's Display Properties.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
