Re: No picture

You may need to reduce the resolution on your comptuer screen. Try going to Control Panel, Display, and Settings and lowering the resolution a notch or two.
Also, you must make sure that the computer is set to send the signal to the external monitor,. That usually means holding down the Function key and pressing the F5 key or the one with the picture of two monitors on it. You will see several options for display. Toggle with the F5 key to the one that shows the computer screen and the external monitor at the same time.

Computer screen on, Projector off

If you are running Windows 7\8:
Leave the ViewSonic projector on.
Right click anywhere on the desktop and select "Screen Resolution".
In the display column, it will give you an option to select your computer monitor, the ViewSonic, or to clone the displays.
Select your computer monitor display only.
Shut off the ViewSonic projector.

If you are running Windows XP:
The process is basically the same except you find the settings under Control Panel > Display.

When using the computer with my projector my computer goes blank because i am not actively using it just having students view the screen what can i do

"test test" offers a good answer but misses out the possibility that your laptop "Power Settings" might be turning off your screen display. So if the problem persists after going through all the things already suggested you could go to your laptop's control panel to the Power Options and click on "Change when to turn off the display". Good luck.

Can hear sound but cannot see picture

Hi, if your LCD projector turns on and projects light with sound but not the picture on your computer screen, first make sure the projector is plugged into your computer. If it is, check your computer display settings. Go to "Control Panel" and "Settings" or "Windows Setup." Select "Display." Make sure it's set to appear on your laptop screen and the the projector screen. Most laptops have a "Fn" key dedicated to changing the output display setting.

If your projector turns on but emits no light or picture, replace the projector's bulb, often called the lamp. Most have a life of between 2,000 and 6,000 hours. Your projector may warn you when the lamp life is about to expire, although some models simply stop working when the lamp needs replacing.

Thank you.

Flickering dots on Benq PB6200 projector.

it's not the lamp. if you've replaced the cords and still have the problem, reset the settings to factory default to make sure the resolution matches. if still not ok, there may be an issue with the main board.

Differing size display when using Dell 3200mp LCD projector

Once your display of the projector is set( all connection to computers via cables is done), then all the display settings remain with the source i.e. the laptop.

You will need to set all your laptops to the correct display properties. This you can do by either going to presentation mode or on Window XP you can simply go on to your desktop and right click > go to properties>go to setting> press display 2 and set the screen resolution as per your projectors resolution and enjoy. ( for information: display1 is the resolution meant for your laptop)

Please do rate this solution and Thanks for usinf FixYa!

PB6100:No picture display

The projector needs to be turned on first, then connect it to the laptop. If the picture still does not show at that point, press the FN and the LCD keys on your laptop at the same time. This should work.
