Based on your post/description, I will assume that you would want to connect a PC to a Projector.

For a 3M DY-0205-1002-9, pls contact:

3M Customer Information Center
Hale Avenue Business Center
3M bldg. 506, POCS Destination Code 0444
835 Hale Ave. North

or try

Should you opt for a replacement, you may want to consider DVI to VGA Analog Video Cable or similar products.

Alternately, you can use a converter box that will accept VGA inputs but whose output is DVI-D compatible. A fine example is VGA to DVI Converter/Scaler but of course any comparable brand/model should also work.

Hope that these be of help/idea. Pls post back how things work out or should you need further information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Continuously searching for input. have changed both vga boxes and cables.

I would go into the menu of the projector and turn off the auto source search function and set it to the VGA input. If you have tried your FN and 'F' keys simultaneously to send the signal through the VGA port and still have nothing, you may have a faulty video card.

Good luck, hope I was of help

When I plu-in the VGA cable my screen goes blank on my HP-1170. I then have to reboot to fix video on laptop. Done all the resolutions and I cant seem to get the external projector to show anything other...

reset the settings to factory default through the menu. swap out the cable. depending on your laptop, press function-f4 or function-f7. if still nothing, you may have a main board issue.

Hi, the M3 6400 doesn't have a lamp; it is an overhead projector (dynamic) display which needs an external light source. When you start it en put a ordinary lamp behind it and after connected it to a 'source' ( you will see images appear.

Connecting Ibook G4 to Sanyo PRO xtrax projector


Most of the Apple iBook G4 series have a video out port on the left side. This is a non-standard port and would require the use of an adapter (Apple VGA Display Adapter) that is normally included with the laptop package when first bought. The VGA's output connector is the standard 15 pin HD D-Sub (HD-15).

On the other hand, the Sanyo PRO XTRAX projector is capable of multiple input type of connectors. They are: a) RCA type composite video in, b) DVI, c) RGB, c) RS232, d) S-Video, e) USb and f) VGA. You would then be using the latter, VGA since it matches the Apple VGA Display Adapter.

To connect the iBook to the projector, you would need a length of VGA cable that are available in most projector/computer stores. Here, here and here are examples of commercially available.

Please refer to the images below.c02d50f.jpg

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you be in need of additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Projector is not able to project red from the vga cable

I assume connecting a monitor/lcd panel display doesn't exhibit the missing red? To narrow this down, try using the cable with either a different projector or monitor/flat panel display. In short, does the problem follow the cable to these other devices? If so, then even though there are no pins bent over, the cable is probably bad. Cables can develop an internal connection break, even without showing any external evidence. This will usually occur at a connector end, and is often the result of overflexing, bending or other straining of the cable near the connector. Can you borrow another cable from a friend? A couple of other possibilities: 1. A broken solder connection at the VGA jack inside the projector. This can occur, again, if the connection is stressed (flexed, jammed, pulled on etc.). 2. The circuitry just beyond the VGA jack, which processes the video information could have a defect, not passing the Red info. The latter problem is one for a capable technician, and depending on expertise, you might be able to repair a broken solder connection.
