Re: I want to know whats ronge with my projector

The lamp needs cooling when it gets to a certain temperature. Wait for it to cool and then turn it back on then hook up the dvd player. Got it?

Only showing background of computer

Check your computer's (I bet blind that it's actually a laptop) video output settings. It's most likely defaulted to "extended" or "dual screen" mode... which can be useful in some cases to e.g. let you set up a powerpoint that shows an unmolested image of the slides on the projector whilst you control it with a rather more option-heavy display on the laptop screen.

However if you really want the projector to just directly show what's on the internal screen itself, look for a mode called "Clone", "Twin" or "Mirror" (or something with a similar meaning)... or just cycle through them until you find one that works.

Mind that most projectors now are both lower resolution and have a different shape output to a typical laptop, so expect that one or other of the displays will end up seemingly distorted somehow, either stretched/squashed to fit or with horizontal/vertical letterboxing (black borders). It's quite likely that your internal display will end up being crunched down to match whatever the projector reports as its native resolution... do not panic, it's not a fault, this is fairly expected behaviour. At least, so long as it goes back to normal when you unplug the projector, of course.

Unfortunately I can't predict which of the above will actually happen, as every manufacturer has a different in-house standard for default behaviour, and the combination of two devices potentially from different marques being connected together only multiplies the possibilities. Just muddle through as best you can ;-)

Good morning. for some reason my projector

good morning. my BenQ PB6240 Projector was working fine with my Mac Powerbook Laptop last week and this week the screen shows a searching display for the S-Video connection. The S-Video cords are all plugged in properly, and would not show up when connected to a dvd player as well. Is this projector more compatible with Windows computers? And has there been reports of S-Video connections malfunctioning?

Mitsu x400bu gives coprright indication when i go from hdmi todvi

Firmware update, yes or use component video. HDMI has embedded copy protect and is really an aggravating connection. Consider this, hdmi's benefit is embedded audio, your projector does not need this. Component video will meet you needs because the projector is not real high on res. Good luck

Media player movie picture won't display

Yes, I have the same problem with a Dell Inspiron 700m laptop. I have never been able to show videos using two seemingly compatible devices. This is not a projector issue however, as my projector displays video DVD fine from this PC, only videos inserted into PowerPoint will not play. Using another computer it works fine. Imagine that, Dell selling two highly practical devices that are not compatible.
