Question about Optoma EP719 XGA DLP PROJECTOR 2000L 2500:1 CONT DVI-D WITH HDCP Multimedia Projector

Connecting a Optoma Projector to a Toshiba Laptop

OK.. I feel like an idiot but I have hooked this thing up to my laptop (the guy at the store said that was all I had to do) and all I get displayed is VGA Searching. I have done the (fn) (f5) thing and the laptop screen goes black and nothing happens with the projector. Is there some driver or something that I have to install to get this to work?

Re: Connecting a Optoma Projector to a Toshiba Laptop

I bought mine new... hooked it up and got the same response. I would have torn my hair out but I am bald! Checked everything. Great frustration. Finally, I thought to replace the cable with one I have on my monitor. Worked perfectly! A brand new cable and it was faulty! Contacted the company and they sent out a new one. Even sent a packet to ship my bad one back so they could find out what happened. No connection problems with the new cable.
