It say no source found


Hello Abugah,

For "no source found" errors, we recommend starting with the input device and the wires (assuming you have selected the correct input on the projector). Swap wires and sources until you figure out if the problem is with the projector or not.

If you are using a computer, make sure that it is on the right settings. On laptops there is usually a button you can press to cycle through display options (normally a function key + another).

If you figure out that it is, in fact, a problem with the projector we recommend going to a professional to fix the problem. If you are in the United States we can fix the projector. Projector AV Systems Repair Services

Before you send in the projector to anyone, contact Optoma to see if it is still under warranty.

Hope this helps!

Locked in searching source


Click menu, go to the third screen, unclick source lock, and select the proper source, remember that the format need to be setup according to your output that's coming in to the projector. Under each source format there are sub menus for various input types as well.

The screen is upside down and when I click "set up" or "System" it reads "Source Unavailable" and I have no options to choose from.


Apply the Factory Reset within the projector options. You should be able to select that option without a source attached to the projector. What the option does is set every settings of the projector back to factory default.

Sp4805 turns on by itself, direct tv picture will run for a short while then dorps out. I can't seem to pick a source? I tried my dvd player and it seemed to work normally. menu options are not highlighted...


In the sources menu where you assign sources, the second selection from the bottom is where you enable/disable sources which can inhibit a source/input from working even if it is assigned. Also check mark the auto source enable box.
If the input you are trying to use is not assigned or enabled many of the menu items are grayed out.

A quick fix is selecting the "factory reset" in the menu as the default factory settings are such that all input's are set to work.

Good Luck!

How achieve maximum resolution acer projector


When you connect a source to the projector, the unit will match the resolution input to it. As long as you don't exceed the max resolution, which is considerable, the unit will display it. Go into the menu and select auto-image to have the projector give you the best quality image. Hope I helped you!---Rick
