Re: Projector

Hi there

If you are using a desktop PC you should check if your secondary screen/monitor is activated by right clicking on your desktop and going to properties - then go to settings and advanced settings.

You'll see a block with two screens in it A & B . Attach the secondary screen.

If you are using a Notebook - do the same as above.

If it doesn't pick up the signal on it's own , hold down the Fn ( function ) button - situated left of your spacebar and in you F-row buttons press the one with the 2 Monitors/Screens on it.

Fn must be held in when pressing the F button - Very Important !

Hope this helps !

Infocus 5000 won't recognize my computer

How about a little more information?
Does the projector turn on?
has it ever worked?
What type of interface (VGA, DVI, HDMI, RCA)
What type of computer (notebook or desktop)

That being said, double check your cable connections and make sure you tell your computer to look for the projector (Dell laptops used to use FN+F8 to switch from laptop to projector). Windows 7 has a menu choice "Connect to Projector". Mac computers - check system preferences and make sure the projector is ON before you plug it into the Mac.

Infocus projector powers on the green light

Hi I am Vortash check in your user manual this may be the signal to tell you that the projector is telling you that the number of hours for your bulb is up ( or indeed the bulb may have blown but this usually shows a red light if so ) if the bulb life monitior is at it's extent it wont let the light opperate and you have to reset the lamp hours you can find out how to do this in the manual under replacement bulbs .. if you have no manual you may be able to download one from off the net .from the manufactures support site .alternately you may have a ballast problem and it requires an engineer to sort it out . regards Vortash

I have 2200MP projector that when you turn it on,it clicks about 8 to 10 times and then the power seams to turn on, but the lamp light light comes on and nothing lights up. it will shut down after that, with the green light still flashing. What could be the problem? Roger

This would appear to be a bulb that has reached end of life -- or the projector thinks that it is because of hours. Usually most bulbs are 1000 or 2000 hours. Depending on your projector there are different ways of checking bulb life hours -- if you Google your projector model number and "bulb life" you will usually get a post on how to check these hours. Also, if it is a new bulb and you haven't reset the hours counter, it may need to be reset (however you also don't want to wait too long before changing a bulb that has reached EOL since they can and do explode sometimes taking out the projector with it).

USB Driver for PLC SU70 Sanyo Multimedia Projector

Ok kumar i did some research on your problem.

Im not real savvy with projectors, but im going to try and lead you into the right direction. Now when you connect your projector to your computer, you need to go to your input settings on your projector and put them on "auto". In your product manual it says the computer should automatically detect the projector. Now if the projector isnt displaying a proper screen then you need to to go into the manual settings and adjust the settings.

Now i want you to goto this website:

This is the manual for your projector. Scroll down to the table of contents and click on the bold letters COMPUTER INPUT click that and read a little about the way your computer connects to the projector. I hope this helps, please let me know an update. thnx
