Hello experts, my work has an epson EMP-821 projector which everyones' laptop can connect to apart from mine. our IT guy had a go last week and was pressing 'fn' and the ' F' keys as well as adjusting the screen settings, allto no avail. i work in china and the IT guy has no english so i'm not sure exactly what he was doing. i have an acer travelmate 3300. the configuration lable says travelmate 3302WXCi. i'd love to know if there's any chance i can link the two or should i just give up? cheers, tom

    Am having the very same problem without any success.

    Hey Guys, I have an Acer Travelmate C300, yes, not the latest gear.

    Problem is that I visit different clients, who each have their own different projectors!

    I sometimes can't get their projectors to recognise my laptop.

    Can you please give me step by step instructions to achieve success?

    My original user manuals give no guidance on this matter.

    I'm connected to an optoma projector. My wallpaper shows up on the projector screen. When I select "identify" from the Display settings, a "1" shows up on the laptop screen and a "2" on the Projector screen, but I can't get the video to show on the projector screen unless I manually drag it to the screen. Can't seem to make any difference with various settings. Any ideas.

You could try using the S-video connection.

Below your screen, there is an icon on graphic display, click on it and select which mode of output you wish, i.e., monitor and display out, or display only, etc.

Sure can be fixed.

1st of all you need to connect the projector with your laptop turned off. One the laptop has finished booting and loading windows. Hit the Fn+f4 or f7 key to switch between the displays then you will get the display.

But if this also does not give display then you can check with the projector with Video INPUTS (Eg. Input 1 / Input 2 etc.,)

No signal on epson emp-x3 projector using susb cable

I'm assuming (because of the USB) that you wish to connect a computer to the projector.
You will need a VGA cable connected to the Computer input on the projector and the VGA output on your laptop.
If it is a laptop you may have to active the external monitor on your laptop. This is generally done by pressing the function key and F5. But this will depend on your Laptop and OS on the laptop. Look for a button amongst the F keys (at the top of the keyboard) that will do this on your laptop.
An example of this is in the photo.tech_av.jpg

If you understand the requirement of specialist lighting and how to handle the lamp, the cheaper option will be fine.
Make certain you rebuild the light box exactly as you took it apart.

you can buy any vga cable at any electronics shop in your area. usually epsons pin configuration is just standard so any vga cable will do. also try to look for it in any computer surplus store (if theres any). LCD TV nowadays has a bundled vga cable that will work with your projector too.

If you are connecting it to a computer with a VGA cable, you may have to go into the options of the projector and set the port correctly.

Go into the menu, and select the "image" area. In here you should be able to select computer.

Screen image is distorted small using Epson EMP 821 with Latitude D620

Check Epson"s support site to see if there is a driver for the projector. Some projectors require a driver for the visual clarity, and lots of times the driver disc doesn't come with the projector, go figure, and don't ask me why.
