    apparently the best way is to press Fn F8 and then change the screen resolution to it's minimum setting and then it works but how are you supposed to know that?

    thanks for the help though

Hey,

i think you problem is that the s-vhs output on the labtop is not enabled.

My old labtop needed restart with the projector on, and also had a switch to set in the bios.

So take a look in you manual for the labtop.

Have you tryed the projector on a dvd player or something like that, just to bee sure the projector works fine?

best regards michael

Ive recently bought a second hand Sony Cineza VPL-HS2 projector and it doesnt have an AVG input in the back. It does have a S-Video input, a 'video' input and a couple of audio inputs,


I think you mean "VGA" not "AVG". You can use the VGA to S-Video adapter to connect the laptop to the projector however you may get better results using a VGA to A/V (component) adapter to feed video into the RCA video input connector.

Your recorder is mostly analogue with just a hdmi output, you need to link up using a scart lead or similar adapter lead for recording, looks to me like scart 1 (decoder) or the front sockets for input use while. the other scart looks to be just for TV to use.
If your TV has another hdmi then I would have thought your sky sat would connect that way leaving the scart for your video.
Though if it has only one, then you are looking at a multi input box for hdmi (some are automatic others have remote control) or demote your video's hdmi lead and connect it to the Sky sat, use the scart lead to link it with the video's scart 1 and the other scart socket to TV by the look of things.
Its a problem with older and younger equipment because they are built at different times with their connections decided by that time of manufacture.

Hope this helps..........

I have recently bought a second hand 3M projector, and when turned on the screen shows half Blue (i think) and half Red and when used via the laptop the red shows through on the right hand side, can anyone...


first reset the settings to factory default. you may have to realign the lcd panels and make sure the panel ribbon cables are properly seated. otherwise, you have a main board issue.

3M S151 Projector for the classroom


You will need to have a dvi to vga converter. If you have a Macbook, it is a mini dvi to vga. You can get this adapter direct from Apple for about $20. A wireless connection is not available with this model projector.

Hi Sue, On your first concern, a possible reason for the 'Sync is out of range' is because your laptop's resolution is just too high for the projector to handle. You may have to manually lower down your screen resolution (right click on a clear area of your desktop, click on properties, settings tab, move bar of screen resolution towards the left). Try different settings that will give you best performance without the projector rejecting the input signal. Am not sure about your second concern though, offhand your description sounds like video noise. You may have to check that your connectors are firmly plugged in. A longshot is to remove any possible source of interference like wireless phones including your mobile, WiFi AP and the likes. Perhaps you give the first suggestion a try and see if the purple dots disappear when you have the projector running ok. Further you may have to reset your projector if it's got one. Normally it's a small button clearly marked RESET somewhere at the rear of the unit. Hope this works out for you. Pls comment/post back should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
