Getting image to project

Hi I am having a problem with a sony cpl cs2 projector, it displays a start up image on the wall but I am not sure how to project my slideshow onto the wall.  The operating instructions are missing. The start up box pops up when the pc boots up but the options do not appear to give the options to project the image from the computer to the projector - then to the wall.

You are going to have to read the manual, and operate the projector as you read each section

The machine starts, eventhe vent, but no image appears. All the lights, except the POWER SAVING one remain lights on.

  • Plug the projector into the wall and put it into standby mode. You should have already replaced the projector's lamp with a new LMP-P200.
  • Press the "Reset," left arrow, right arrow and "Enter" keys on the projector's control panel. Press them in the exact order listed here, one after another, and press each key for less than five seconds.
  • Turn the projector on with the "Power" button. Press the "Menu" key to enter the projector's menu settings.
  • Press the down arrow to navigate to the "Install Setting" menu and press the right arrow to select it. You should see the lamp timer at the bottom of the screen. If you have correctly reset the lamp timer, it will indicate 0 or 1 hours.
  • Press the "Menu" key to exit the menu system.

    Can't get computer images to project

    Hi, I have found out that you must have the laptop set to an external monitor, in the control panel, display area, click on 2, then you must have the projector turned on before you start the laptop so it can recognize that the projector is there. Also make certain that you allow the unit to cool off by turning the lamp off, leaving the fan on and open the door where the projection lens is located.

    Hi mwwill

    Try using a different cable from your source.

    If this doesn't solve the problem I would advise you to rather take it to a repairer as this could be either the lens that is damaged or the Mainboard where all the processing is done.

    Power up

    Hi mick1907

    Take out your lamp and check for any irregularity like marks or discolouration.

    If there is no visible damage - put back the lamp and take of the top cover - start the Projector and check if all your fans are running - that is if the machine starts at all.

    If the unit doesn't start up at all you will have to replace the Mainboard.
