Your on the edge, possible that the image will be unstable (wiggly). Considered a VGA amp from Gefen to up the drive. 50ft is about max. You can try dumbing down the res if it is unstable. Less horizonal frequency to travel long distance. good luck

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


Hi,
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.

The machine is projecting purple light.


Hello, firstly I would try a new VGA cable first and then wiggle the VGA cable in the ports, sometimes the ports become damaged when strain is put on them (more likely to be the laptop VGA port) If this doesn't correct the problem then it is likely to be a polarizing lens in the projector. If so it may be too costly to repair as projectors can be bought for just over £200.

Good luck

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 :)

No signal on epson emp-x3 projector using susb cable


I'm assuming (because of the USB) that you wish to connect a computer to the projector.
You will need a VGA cable connected to the Computer input on the projector and the VGA output on your laptop.
If it is a laptop you may have to active the external monitor on your laptop. This is generally done by pressing the function key and F5. But this will depend on your Laptop and OS on the laptop. Look for a button amongst the F keys (at the top of the keyboard) that will do this on your laptop.
An example of this is in the photo.tech_av.jpg

We have connected both the cables (VGA and HDMI) in the Vivitek D945VX but when we use just one cable VGA or HDMI at a time to display through Laptop, the projector would not display properly (sometime it...


you are using a long cord but this should not effect it.... try unplugging the cable you are not using from the projector and just have the one cable going from laptop straight to the projector... hope this was useful...

Problem hooking my macbook to the Powerlite 62c/82c the projector


For these types of projectors if you're planning to hook it up using you MacBook ;

You will need a converter ( from VGA to DVI )
Using the VGA cable that came with the unit when purchased ;

Connect the VGA cable on the back of the Projector and on the other of the cable you will connect the converter ( VGA TO DVI ) since for MAC systems it has DVI ports for monitors not VGA...

You can purchase the converter at any Mac store or any computer shop near you..

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
