Question about Mitsubishi XD206 DLP Projector

2 Answers

Laptop vs. Projector

I have a Mitsubishi XD206U projector in my classroom. The Dell laptop that I had been connecting to it to show DVDs in class has died, and I purchased a Toshiba Satellite L55 series laptop with Windows 8. When I tried to hook up the projector to show a DVD, I got an error message that the output device does not support HDCP. Is there anything I can do to get the projector to show DVDs played from my new laptop? It shows Power Point slideshows and videos that are online just fine.

    What output are you using? Also, does the laptop have VGA output?

I would guess, remove Win8 and go back to a proper OS.

I would also blame Windows 8 if the movies you played worked before you got the new laptop. To rule this out, connect another laptop (maybe another Dell with the same operating system) to the projector and play an HD-disc on that laptop.

If it works, then you'll know its a compatibility problem with the laptop operating system you're using.

    HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) is a form of digital copy protection that requires compatibility between your Apple TV and high-definition TV. HDCP compatibility is required for video playback between your Apple TV (2nd and 3rd generation) and high-definition TV.

Hi terry2421

No this is not the bulb. You will have to get the Mainboard repaired at a service provider. Losing signal and a discolouration showing up is a clear indication of a faulty Mainboard.

Get a quote first , because some service providers overcharge on these sort of repairs. The most you should pay is $150.

Monitor Display on TV


Try the following:
Power up the projector first. With the laptop hooked up but not powered on once projector is warming up begin booting laptop. If there is still no display once its projector is fully warmed up and laptop booted you can try using the (fn) key with the laptop monitor switching function key usually F4 which switches the display monitor to show on external, external and laptop or just laptop. If this all fails try changing resolution of laptop to something that might be more projector friendly.
Let me know how you go.
