Well I was hunting for a replacement remote, came across this page, and know this fix for you all. Go into your setup menu, slide over to the management tab and make sure Auto Source Select is checked. If it is not, it does not search for a DVD but instead looks for only external inputs. Even pushing the manual source select button will not find the DVD if this entry is not checked.

Press the src button on the remote control. If that does not work, then press the src button on the actual projector. You may have to press it a couple of times. This allows you to manually search the source,(dvd,cable etc.) Instead of it doing it itself.

I have the same problem with my cinego.

Maybe we should all sue Radio Shack to take these machine back

This problem is wide enough to issue a recall.

    I have the same issue. 3 outta 4 times it will not recothgnize the dvd. When the dvd does play, they will only play for about one hour and then freezes. The dvd is spinning but the eye reader doesn't move. I wanna throw this thing in the ocean!

Connect Cinego to MacBookPro

The projector has a computer video cable input on the side of the unit. If yor MacBook has a female VGA output, simply purchase a VGA cable (double male) at a Radio Shack or WalMart, or other comparable retailer, and connect the two. The Cinego will find the input signal from the Mac, and you have to press the right keys on the Mac keyboard to tell it to put the screen signal through the VGA output on the side of the MacBook.

SRC button on cinego projector will not read source


Three (3) things you can try:
1. Lower down the Screen resolution of your laptop as well as the Color quality and the Screen refresh rate before doing the Fn + F5. If it works, adjust thereafter;
2. Do a soft (Factory) reset of your Cinego in the in the Management Menu (credit to Cooljazz); and/or
3. it is just "slow" in sensing the presence of a VGA source as it cycles in its selection, internal DVD, VGA, Composite Video IN. Since it does not have a manual source selection, your only option is to really wait or ...Verify that "Auto Source Select" is enabled in the Management Menu (buttons-Proj/Setup then >/9) and "tap" the "SRC" button on the projector itself to manually initiate the input/source selection.

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

Good luck and kind regards.

I have problem wiht Cinego D-1000

While it is frozen on that "Searching" screen, hold the SRC button down on the actual projector for an extended time. Then after letting it up, hit it briefly one or two times until it finds a source. Make sure that under Projector Setup/Management/ "Auto Source Select" is checked. This brought my Cinego back from the dead.
