Hi there

You can right click on your desktop and go to properties and then settings. Chech if your secondary monitor is activated.

If it is and you still can't pick up a signal - Hold down the Fn ( function button situated in the bottom row left of your space bar ) and in your F-buttons at the top there should be one with two screens on it. That splits the screen and pushes the image to the Projector.

They (Apple) might be right. It could be that the projector is damaged, like the bulb, or it could be incompatible with your computer, but I don't think that is the case. Try taking the projector to a computer repair place.

I am trying to set up an InFocus LP400 projector with my computer. I followed the instructions using the CableWizard Lite cable for my laptop pc and get no projected image. I used the suggested port...


start the connecting all over again, by following the steps below:

1. Turn your computer off.

2. Connect the cable from the computer to the projector. If you want to have your monitor to be hooked up as well, connect a splitter to the video out port (DVI or VGA). You can also just hook the projector up to the second port on your video card (If you have one) or if you have a laptop, you can connect to the video out port on the back.

3. Turn the computer on and boot into your desktop.

4. Turn on the projector. Most projectors have an auto detect function, that will detect a video signal and auto configure the projector to display that signal. If you have a laptop, you have to hit a function key to activate the second display. Usually this is FN Key + F5 or one of the F Keys across the top of the laptop keyboard. It looks like two squares, one empty and one with something in it.

5. Adjust the focus, brightness, contrast, and color on the projector.

6. Aim the projector at something white. Try not to aim it at something highly reflective.

7. Step back ... Load up your favorite game or video ... and enjoy.

Your project should work, after following the above instruction.

Good luck.

Do i need to do something special to hook my laptop up to a mitsubishi projector using a VGA cable other than fn and f8 on the Dell laptop?

this should be enough to ensure signal is going out of your monitor port on the back of your Dell.

the projectory also supports montor to montor cable rather than vga

suspected for VGA the projector needs to be set to video input
and for monitor to monitor cable to computer input setting.
if picture is not seen straight away cycle FN combination until picuture is seen.

I cant get signal from my computer

Many computers don't automatically turn on the external VGA connector when you hook up the cable to another monitor. One of the function keys (often F5, but not always) will turn on the connector. Usually the key has a symbol on it that looks like a monitor screen. When you press that key it will turn the external VGA connector on or off. On some computers the sequence goes laptop screen on and external monitor off, laptop off and external on, both on. Once you have the external connector turned on your projector will work properly.

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.

Colors showing red on screen

Hi Stella,
There is a button on the projector called "Auto Image"
Most people don't realize it's even there.
Press it while you are seeing this problem and most likely the projector will figure out the image issue and all will be well.
Note: this feature is nowhere in the menu(s)

Good Luck!

Hooking projector

You will probably need a standard VGA cable. The ends look like the connection for a monitor. Take a look if you don't know what I'm talking about:

There should be a port on your laptop and one on the projector. After it's hooked up you might have to toggle between the projection settings or select the correct source on the projector. Normally, there is a source or input button on the projector. If the picture isn't showing up on the projector but is on the laptop or vice versa, you'll need to toggle between settings. On my dell, it is fn (function) and the F8 key but sometimes it's the F7 key or some other F? key, just look for the LCD/CRT on the function button or the picture of a monitor looking thing. This is only if you don't see the image from the projector. Hope this helps you out!

PowerPoint and Projector (InFocus LP640) Incompatability

I am unsure of this from your post, but don't try to hook the projector up to the laptop while either one of them is on. Power both the laptop and the projector off, hook up the projector to the laptop, then power on the projector first then the laptop. If you are already doing this, I apologize for stating the obvious.
