Why wont my movietime projector play from my lap top when connected by the D-SUB, i have used fn +4

All lap tops are different and some are f7 or f10. The picture that your looking for is the one square half way over another square. and make sure that the input selected in the projector is the same as the input you've connected the laptop to.

Unable to play live tv from lap top to projector

Is it just the live tv or the laptop in general you are not getting a signal from? Using 15 pin VGA cable correct from laptop to projector?
When booted to projector, on laptop, select "FN" key and either F5, F7 or F8 depending on your laptop. Look for the monitor logo on the F keys. This is telling the computer that you have hooked up an additional external monitor (the projector). Once will send image to projector, twice will display on both, a third time will return to just image on laptop.

I want to watch a sporting event outside on a big screen using a projector. How do I view the live broadcast from my TV through a projector?

the best way
u need to get external video card (it cost's around 15$ or 20euros)
with this u can watch cable tv or satelite tv on ur lap top or pc
the next step is to plug projector to pc, lap top etc.
that's all
If u don't have cable or satelite, there are many sites on web where u can watch tv for free, if u perfer this way u don't need video card, but picture won't be so great also...
i'll writh u down one of the free tv internet sites

My Pro-X won't communicate with my computer

The first check is to make sure that it does accept other VGA signals into the 15pin D connector use 800X600 resolution, if signals are present then it is because you need to configure the output reference on your laptop.This is by using the F keys etc this switches the VGA XGA signals from your laptop screen and reference's it out to the connector.Kind regards J Williams

Green light flashing and then shuts down

Hi Gary

Have you resetted the lamp timer ? It must be done when a new lamp is inserted into the unit.

You can reset the lamp timer by holding the up arrow key on the Projector in until a online message appears. Then just follow the on-screen instructions.

If the problem persists , you will have to replace the Ballast wich is the lamp's power supply.
