Question about InFocus LP70+ Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Cannot play movies

I have a Infocus LP70+. We bought a DVI-VGA adapter but we cannot see the picture from computer using DVI-VGA cable. S-video port works though. We hooked up the projector with a S-video cable to the computer. We can see static pictures displayed but if we click on a DVD or a recording, it doesnt play. Do i need different cables ? What could be the problem ?

Hi i am looking for vga cable 9 Pin Female to 15 Pin Female thanks


The 9-pin port on your PC tower is NOT a video port, it is a serial data port. All VGA connectors are 15-pin. Hooking up to the 9-pin port will not get you a picture. There should be a VGA port on the PC, or else a DVI an/or HDMI port. You can get DVI-to-VGA adapters that work, but only if the DVI port is an analog DVI, not if it is a digital DVI (DVI-D or DVI-DD).

I would like to know what adapter (DVI to VGA Cable Adapter) I need to connect to a Macintosh G4. Thanks


Without knowing what Model Number of MAC G4 you're referring to, I can only give you generic information.

If your MAC G4 has a DVI port it is generally the female style.
The DVI connector on the adapter will need to be a male DVI style.

The VGA end of the adapter will be either male, or female. Most VGA connectors on a monitor cable have a male VGA end.

(The DVI end will have the pins sticking out on the adapter. The VGA end will have the socket holes)

Also stated as the monitor cable end will be a DVI male. The port {Connection} on the computer is a VGA female)

Example of a DVI male to VGA female adapter,

http://sewelldirect.com/dviaftovgam.asp

Barring that you need the other style of DVI to VGA adapter, (DVI female on the monitor cable, VGA male on the computer), this is an example,

[ Note* The newer VGA connectors are also known as an HD-15 connector.
More information on the Video Graphics Array connector,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector

More information on the DVI connector styles, and the Digital Visual Interface technology,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Visual_Interface

If you should find all of this confusing, simply state in a Comment as to what connector is on the end of the monitor cable, and what connector is at the computer.

State whether the connectors are Male (Pins sticking out), or Female (Socket holes)

Can i hook up my 32 in emerson to my computer for netflix


Yes you can . Do the instructions below and then just download the Netflix movie like you would if you where to watch it on your PC. After all connections you should be able to watch it on your Tv screen, Enjoy.
Things You'll Need:
VGA to VGA cable

DVI to VGA adapter (as needed)

How to Connect a Computer to an Emerson TV

1
Purchase a VGA cable and a DVI to VGA converter (if needed). The VGA cable is a cable with blue attachments on either end that contains a total of 15 pins (arranged in a 5x3 lineup). You will only need the VGA to DVI adapter if your computer does not have a blue VGA connector on the back.
2
Attach the VGA cable to the VGA port on the back of your computer (going through the DVI to VGA adapter if necessary). When screwing the connector in, alternate between the two sides periodically. Tighten one side of the connector a little, then tighten the other side of the connector to match. This will ensure a tight connection and an optimal picture.
3
Attach the VGA cable to the back of your Emerson television, utilizing the same alternating tightening method that you used to secure the cable to your computer.
4
Use the menu button on the Emerson TV to select a new "source." Choose "VGA" input, then confirm that by pressing the OK button (normally the volume+ button on most televisions). The television should immediately switch to display the computer's output. If it takes you to a blue screen instead, simply restart the computer in order to reset the connection.

Is these a driver to get USB connection to macbook


Are you asking if there is an adapter? There actually is an adapter (USB to S-Video) that will work between the two. However, with my MacBook C2D 2.4 GHZ, I use mini DVI to VGA adapter. This allows instant laptop to projector picture and sound. You can use it for anything from powerpoint to movies or even as a giant monitor. The mini-DVI to VGA adapter can be purchased at Best Buy for less than $20. Look for it in the accessory aisle near the Apple machines. IMO, this is a priceless addition to your MacBook. I hope this helps! Please remember to vote if it does.

I have just installed a Acer LCD #X223W moniter. What do I need to do to get my speakers to work with it? Is there a missing port or do I need a new cable. This moniter has a HDVi cable but the Computer...


Did you give the correct model of the Acer monitor you have?

When I looked up the X223W monitor, I see a monitor with a DVI-D port and VGA port. Only the VGA cable is usually included in the box. If your computer has a VGA port (most older computers that came with only the video chip on the motherboard), you can either use the VGA cable or get a VGA to DVI adapter and use a DVI-D cable (purchase separately). Alternatively, check the specs of your power supply and available card slots and buy a new video card with a DVI port. If you have only a DVI port on your computer, get the DVI cable (the VGA to DVI adapter would work but isn't a good option).

If I read the specs correctly, this monitor doesn't have speakers. You should plug your speakers into the audio out of your computer. If you use the on-board audio you will see at least two jacks (microphone/line in) and audio out (speakers). Many audio cards and some motherboards come with additional jacks for surround sound so check your system information. Audio extension cables are a cheap solution if the speaker cables are too short to reach to your computer.

I hope this helps.

Dell C521 Where to connect monitor?


This means that you have an external video card (which is not outside the computer). This video card will be plugged into the motherboard. That message is saying that the port on the back of the computer that your monitor is plugged into is the wrong one. You need to look for another port on the back of the computer.

Here is a picture of a VGA port that you should use if you have a VGA cable to connect the monitor (Blue Ends).

Here is a picture of a DVI port that you should use if you have a DVI cable to connect the monitor (White Ends).
http://zedomax.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2008/09/dvi.jpg

So depending on the cable and connections that are available on your computer and your monitor depends on what you have to use. I hope that wasn't too confusing. Let me know if you need more info.

Connecting Dell laptop to Infocus LP820


The USB cable doesn't transmit Video. You need to plug in the VGA cable. The "DVI" port on the LP820 is not a a DVI but a M1 Digital port and won't work with DVI unless you get a converter.
