Connecting Macbook to Hitachi

Hi, I have recently got a new Hitachi CP-X260, and I would like to connect it to my 13'' Macbook Pro. I bought the adapter to connect the two cords to the Macbook and Hitachi. So I did. Everything connected fine. The cords fit and everything! I went to System Preferences and then clicked on Displays, but I couldn't find the Arrangements pane, my only two choices were Displays and Color. I clicked on the Detect Displays, and nothing happened, it was like I didn't even click it and it was totally useless. I tried everything I could! I tried putting the computer to sleep and then waking it over and over again but It's totally useless. I am 99.9% sure I have been doing everything right, including having the proper cords, and having the proper cords put together. I have done all I could. Please help?

SOURCE: hitachi blue patch

I've had one for about a year and a half. This is the second time it happened to me. The first time they replaced it for free(warranty). Now my warranty is up and it is starting to happen again. I think that this must be a common problem in this model. I recommend contacting Hitachi and seeing what they have to say about it. I'm yet to call them again, but I will soon.

Hi there

In your Menu options there is a subfolder where it either reads lamp or lamp timer.

Scroll down to it and hold down you right or left arrow key on the Projector for a couple of seconds.

SOURCE: Presentation mode is off...

Hi there

You cannot hook up a PC & Projector with just a USB cable , you have to use a VGA cable for signal ( picture )

The USB cable is just to use the scroll up or down function from the standard remote controll when doing a presentation.

SOURCE: Projection has yellow tint

From your description, it sounds like a problem with the blue color. Green LCD=purple onscreen, Red=cyan(baby blue) onscreen, Blue LCD=yellow onscreen. It could be a lot of dust on the blue lcd panel, or worse, might be a burned polarizer filter behind the lcd panel due to excessive heat. If you can focus on the yellow and its tons of yellow specs, its dust. A burned filter however, must be replaced. A technician trained in projectors will have to do it. The filter material is glued to a thin glass panel and is replaced as a single filter. It's a very involved repair.

Connect laptop cable

Hi Anna,

It is impossible to connect to a projector with just a usb cable. You will need a VGA cable (for older models of projectors and laptops) or an HDMI cable which can be used with newer models.

Best of luck to you.

No display

Try a restart with the projector still connected. See if it detects it after a restart.

I am not getting any signal between my laptop and the projector. i am connecting with a vga cable

Hi i'm Allan!
There is some keys that you may have to press on the Laptop for it to connect to your projection, usally its FN key plus "F#" key that has the monitor logo. Different on every laptop though. What's the make and model of your laptop?
Keep me posted. Thanks!
