S-Video, want to hook up my laptop, won't play

I bought an S-Video cord, and hooked up my laptop to the projector, I have the source checked under S-Video, but then (AUTO, PALBG, PALM, PALN, NTSCM, NTSC443, SECAM50, SECAM60) comes up. I don't know what any of these mean, and when i push the video button, nothing comes up.

I am trying to hook my notevision projector to my laptop so that i can show a powerpoint. I did not receive a cord with my projector. Which cords will i need? I received a usb to usb and VGA cord but i...

I tend to use the VGA cable. Once connected, switch the laptop on until you get to the desktop, then switch on the projector. Some will see the signal, if not, simoultaneously press your FN and relevant 'F' key to send the signal out to the VGA. You may need to do this 3 times, once to send to projector, one to send back to laptop screen and then once to send the signal to both projector and laptop screen. Sometimes this can take a short amount of time. You may want to change the projector settings to the VGA input so it doesn't constantly search for a source. If you still have problems, go into properties on your laptop and advanced. you m,ay need to unclick the box saying 'Extend to..........' (You should find what I mean from this, I am in front of a pc therefore the settings are slightly different.)

If nothing then works, it may be your video card.

Good luck

Hey JKDoering,
There is a chance something is wrong with the cord or connectino the TV is using. Try hooking it up directly to a laptop or other equipment. Trying that will let you know if it is a problem between the TV and projector, or the projector itself.

This projector will run for hours if it is not hooked up to a laptop. once it hooks up to a laptop, it overheats and shuts down within minutes. we have tried switching out the video cords.

Can you try setting the brighness to a low level, and set the fan speed to high speed.
adjust the colour mode in the menu to standard not dynamic.

How do you hook up cable tv to my epson powerlite 830p lcd video projector

To hook up cable tv, you will need to have the cable running into a vcr 1st, then run either your s-video cable or audio video cables into the projector. Press the Source Search button on the remote control or the projector repeatedly until you see the image you want to project on the screen. The projector has two Source buttons.
Use the Computer/Component button to switch between equipment
connected to the Computer/Component ports.
Use the Video/S-Video button to switch between equipment
connected to the Video and S-Video ports.
? The remote control has four Source buttons. Use them to switch
between devices connected to the ports identified on each button.
(The PowerLite 830p does not support EasyMP.TM)
You can preview all sources on one screen to help you select the
desired source. (Allow a few seconds for the projector to sync up
after pressing the button.)

How do I hook my data projector up to my cable TV?

If the TV offers video and audio outputs, you can connect those to the projector. Otherwise you'll need to use a VCR or DVR as the source. In fact, you don't need a TV set at all if the VCR/DVR you use has TV tuning. Hook the video to the projector, run the audio through your stereo system and you're set.

Multiple Video Sources hooked to RT2600, but only DVD shows

I own the RCA RT2600 Home Theater System. I have never set it up, it has never been used. I have someone who wants to buy just the receiver and nothing else. I am wondering what you paid for just the receiver? I don't want to break up the system but I need money right now. I am open to suggestions as to what to do and how much to sell them for.

VGA Problem

This sounds like a driver or software issue. Check Dell's support site for any projector related drivers or software, and also check the projector manufacturer's site for drivers or software. You might also look for any Windows media player updates.
