Cannot Connect My Compaq Presario CQ57 to my Epson Powerlite S4 LCD Projector! Help! Please?

The USB port in the projector is only for Optional Mouse to srcroll down the menu of the projector. Its not ment for the Video connectivity. You have to use 15 pin VGA cable to interconnect the PC and the projector then only you will get the video.

Here i have added the link for the user manual of the projector. Check out page number 30 of the manual.

    How do I change the input from the DVI-I input to the 15

    I found the online manual and followed the instructions to set to "auto" input. Everything works fine.
    It had been a discouraging ordeal trying to locate a new DVI cable (which came with the projector)
    and as it turns out the 15 pin cable works fine. Thank you.

    Projector giving green picture it is ok with RCA inputs ok with S video input but if i connect component connector like 15 pin vga from dvd player it gives green picture but with same cable if i connect pc...

    I think, the issue might be because of lenght of the composite cable. Not all projectors can "recognize the signal" on too long composite cables, try a "standard size" cable used on monitors, it is i THINK 1,8 feet long...? Dunno. Try two short cables and see if you get "green" - if not, then your cable is too long and gives the signal to much "resistance", so your projector can "read" only one of the color channels, in your case green. If your projector setup requires long cables (and it usually does ;) ), you will have to stick to Cinch connectors and analog video signal, which I have tested on 35m long cable without any visible quality loss. Hope this helps. ;)
