Cinego projector not reading VGA cable

My cinego projector stopped reading my VGA cable on my laptop this past Saturday. I tried to use the remote pad to reset the laptop Sunday night for over an hour, but the projector kept defaulting back to the DVD status. the projector does work as a DVD player but I use the projector with my laptop for a powerpoint presentation to teach my Driver's education course in the high schools. I need to get this problem solved ASAP.

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.

Connecting cinego projector to hp laptop

don't know much about the cinego ( resolution ect)

but on most laptops you will have a "F" button or function key near the top row.. mine is F5 that has 2 square icons to show 2 monitors, 1 black, 1 white, when your projector is hooked to your laptop, hold down the FN key probably lower left or right, and tap the F5 or f7 which ever has the 2 montiors on it, it should be a 3 position switch, 1..laptop only, 2 laptop and projector, 3rd position projector only.

that cingo is pretty low-end so you may have to goto display properties on your laptop and reduce the resolution to 800 x 600 or 1024 x 768.

if you can't get a setting that works, try the 3rd position with just the projector display on, and laptop display off, since your laptop screen is higher resolution it corrects a lot of issues.

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 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 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.
