Splicing a monitor output wire from my laptop to

Splicing a computer monitor output wire from my laptop to an A/V cable for a projector. I'm basically using a generic computer monitor cable/plug and splicing it to a generic A/V cable Red/Yellow/White. In doing so I want my laptop's screen to project on a broader projection screen. When I tried to do it myself the monitor's wires consisted of 3 BIG wires that were gray, blue, and red. There were also smaller ones that were green, white, black, yellow, orange, brown. The A/V cables consisted of 3 big wires that were red, white, and black. There were also present little ones that I disregarded and clipped in haste considering the fact that the red and white were the audio while the black was the only one left for video. Any help you could give me would really be awesome. Thanks again and hope you can give me a ''real'' solid with this job.

How to Connect Laptop to Projector

How to display computer image on TV or projector
How to display a computer image on a TV or projector All modern televisions and projectors have one or more ports which allow them to receive and display an image generated by a computer. Both desktop and laptop computers are capable of connecting to a TV or projector, provided that they have the appropriate cables. The following sections contain instructions for using your TV or projector as a computer monitor. For best results, we recommend reading them in order.
Identifying available connections
Connecting computer and projector or TV
Display using Desktop
Display using Laptop
I don't see an image on my TV screen

Identifying available connections The first step in connecting your computer to a TV or projector is finding an identical port on both machines. Once the matching port has been identified (one that is the same on both your input device and output device), you need the appropriate cable to connect them. This section contains a picture of the back of an Epson projector and its available connection ports; as well as descriptions of each.

HDMI
The HDMI connection is very popular among display electronics. In fact, nearly all modern televisions and projectors feature HDMI ports. Most laptop computers support HDMI and it is becoming more prevalent on both desktop as well; even without a high-end video card. HDMI is quickly becoming the standard for all electronic equipment for its high quality signal and ability to carry both audio and video signals. The image to the right is that of an HDMI cable.


find-connect-projector-option-vga-hdmi-zonwsocbr3qazne24mugrpvs-1-1.jpg VGA
The VGA connection is the most common among both desktop and laptop computers, is found on most projectors, and some TVs. The VGA cable has a 15-pin connector on each end that plugs into a VGA port on each device. Due to the fact that most televisions do not support VGA, we recommend using HDMI for their wider range of compatibility.


find-connect-projector-option-vga-hdmi-zonwsocbr3qazne24mugrpvs-1-2.jpg Tip:VGA cabling is universal for devices that support it. For example, the if your desktop monitor that uses a VGA cable it, that same cable can be used by a laptop to connect it to a projector.
Note: If you are using an Apple desktop or laptop you need a VGA adapter to connect a VGA cable to the computer.

DVI
The DVI connection is newer than VGA and it offers a sharper image. Although the DVI port is not shown on the Epson model above, it is still somewhat common for projectors, not so much for televisions. It is mostly found among desktop computers for monitors, but some laptops have DVI connections as well (Apple laptops are more commonly known to support DVI than any other brand of laptop). Since finding DVI on a TV or projector is more difficult, we again recommend using HDMI cables.
Tip: There are special cables that convert from DVI to VGA or DVI to HDMI and vice versa.


find-connect-projector-option-vga-hdmi-zonwsocbr3qazne24mugrpvs-1-3.jpg
Composite Video
The composite video connection is quite common on a TV or projector, but it is nearly nonexistent on modern computers. This connection is the yellow female cable on what is normally a three bundle of red, white, and yellow. The only time you should see this setup is on older video cards for desktop computers.
S-Video
The S-Video connection is also commonly found on TVs and projectors, but solemnly on a desktop or laptop computer. This connection is a small step up from composite video, but is nearing obsolescence.

Connecting computer and projector or TV After you've identified what connections are available on both your computer and TV or projector, you're ready to connect the cables. If the same connections are not available for both the computer and TV or projector, you'll need to purchase a video converter cable that converts one signal into a compatible signal.

Desktop Computers For a desktop, you simply need to plug the cable into the computer and output device. If you don't see an image, you may need to change the display using the following steps.
  1. Press the Windows Key.
  2. Type Adjust screen resolution and press Enter.
  3. Find Display and click the down arrow on the right-hand side of the box.
  4. Select the appropriate output device.
  5. Click Apply then OK.

Laptop Computers If you're connecting a laptop computer to a TV or a projector you'll often need to "send" the video signal to the display device. The key sequence to do this varies depending on the laptop; but usually it's either: Fn + F3, F4, F5, F8, or F9. For example, pressing and holding Fn + F3 at the same time on my laptop sends the video signal to my connected TV instead of the laptop's screen. The corresponding key used with Fn may be labeled as CRT/LCD or have a picture of a monitor on or close to the key. Additional help and information with switching the laptop display can also be found on the link below.
Switching TV inputs Finally, if you're connecting a computer to a TV make sure it has been switched to the correct input. For example, if you connected an HDMI cable to your computer and the "HDMI 2" port on your TV, you'll need to switch to the "HDMI 2" input. This action can be accomplished by pressing the input button on your TV remote until the correct image is displayed.

Our projector shows a blue background and does not seem to be connecting to the computer


Several things to check.
Make sure both the input selection on the projector is for PC and make sure the PC output selection is for the external output, as in an external monitor. The PC does not care or need to know that the external output is a monitor or projector.
If none of these works, try a different cable and output on both the laptop and projector ie, Switch from PC output to a DVI or HDMI.

My Windows XP is connected to my Epson Powerlite S3, but the screen is blue with the words Source: Computer (Auto) No Signal on it. When I click "Help" on the projector, it takes me to a screen...


'No signal' and 'unsupported signal' messages mean 1 of 2 things, either the VGA output is off(laptop) or the display resolution is set too high(laptop and desktop). Assuming the VGA cable you are using is good, try this:


Desktop: hook the computer back up too your computer monitor & set the computer to the basic VGA resolution. For windows XP, right click a blank area on the desktop, click 'properties' on the dropdown menu, click settings. Write down the numbers in the 'screen resolution' and 'color quality' boxes!

Drag the 'screen resolution' all the way down to then 'less' side. Then change the 'color quality' to the lowest setting. Click apply, then answer yes (the display will look UGLY - don't worry!!) Now connect your computer back to your projector. If it works, then the resolution you use on your desktop monitor is not supported on your projector. Experiment with different resolutions to see which one looks best on your projector. You will need to change the settings each time you switch monitor to projector.


Laptop: by default the VGA connector on your laptop is off. To turn it on, look for a blue symbol on one of your function (F1, F2, F3...) keys. It looks like an old TV with a line on both sides 'O' (F4 on HP) Press & hold the blue button (on the lower left of the keyboard, usually to the left of control ) and tap the bleu button you just found. Let go & give you're a computer a few seconds to change over. If the laptop screen goes blank, you found the correct button! The display image should now be visible. Repeat this 1 to 2 times to change it back to laptop display.

If you did not see the display on the projector, 2 other issues are possible. First, verify that the VGA output on the laptop is working - connect the laptop to a regular computer monitor & change the display resolution to the lowest settings (see desktop above), then try it again on the projector. If you cannot get an image on a computer monitor, your laptop settings may need to be adjusted in the same dialogue box as the settings. Monitor #1 is the laptop display, Monitor #2 is the external output.
Happy viewing :)

No signal on epson emp-x3 projector using susb cable


I'm assuming (because of the USB) that you wish to connect a computer to the projector.
You will need a VGA cable connected to the Computer input on the projector and the VGA output on your laptop.
If it is a laptop you may have to active the external monitor on your laptop. This is generally done by pressing the function key and F5. But this will depend on your Laptop and OS on the laptop. Look for a button amongst the F keys (at the top of the keyboard) that will do this on your laptop.
An example of this is in the photo.tech_av.jpg

How do I connect a projector to my G60


Hello

  1. Start by making sure the laptop and projector are both turned off before you start trying to make any connections.
  2. Locate the video cable -Usually your computer should have a svideo ort out. The projector should have either a hdmi or a RCA immput ports, thus you need a svieo to rca cable. Otherwise your laptop should have a VGA port oout where the projectorr should have a VGA port in.
  3. Make sure both ends are securely connected and tighten if necessary. Use a screwdriver or small pliers to tighten the connectors. A loose connection at either end will prevent you from displaying your presentation.
  4. Locate the audio cable and connect the audio cable included with the projector to the Audio Out on the laptop and Audio In on the projector. Make sure these connections are tight.
  5. Start your laptop and the projector. Make sure to check all connections to ensure they have been properly connected.
Really hope this can help you.

Kind regards

White screen problems with my fujitsu siemens amilo li 1705 from boot. External monitor activity suggests system is good.so assume it is not the motherboard. How can I test the LCD cable wire or the screen...


Hello,
Just a hunch. If external monitor is connected to computer when computer is turned on, video output is diverted to the external monitor. Turn computer on, without external monitor, then extend your desktop to an auxiliary video screen (monitor, TV , or projector.) Or you can configure your computer to use the internal LCD and the monitor. Check the graphics properties of the laptop.
Hope it helps.

I have a Toshiba Satellite U300-13U. I cannot project from my laptop using my Optoma projector. I know how to use projectors and have necer had any problems with any other laptop. This isn't a FN/F5 issue,...


Check the video output by connecting an external monitor to the laptop. If you get a normal image on the monitor the the laptop video output is OK.
Use a different video cable between the laptop and the projector.
Maybe your laptop resolution is set too high for the projector.
This maybe a dumb question, is the projector video input set correctly?
