Question about Hitachi CP-X325 Multimedia Projector

Open Question

Video/S-Video- No input detected

When i connect something like a DVD player, VCR or anything with RCA cables, or s-video, it is a coin toss weather the video will be recognized by the projector. Sometimes it will come one right away, and then go off, then if i dont touch anything, it comes back on for a few minutes, then go back off. Other times, when i turn the projector on, it will say no input detected on video right away (or s-video, depending on what i am trying to get to work).

When i connect a computer to it, it never has problems, and has never not recognized it, so i think it is just a problem with the RCA/ svid inputs or decoder

I have tried to connect different devices to the video inputs, and have made sure (by connecting the device to a nearby tv) that the outputs on the device are giving a signal out.

I actually took the cover off the projector, and didn't see any loose connections or anything for the actual inputs inside. Didn't really see anything conclusive.

Let me know what you got!

    When I connect my viewsonic projector to my laptop I get a S/video, I get a no input detected error on the viewsonic screen.

    I don't get a signal at all when I try this setup with the s-video connect from my DVD player to the projector.

    When I connect the laptop to the projector, it works every time.

SOURCE: there is no picture

just a shot in the dark. this reminds me 'bout a problem with a Optoma (or maybe it was a Ask) i fixed. In that setup menu (on the proj), i was able to adjust the sync signal on the input. (I don't mean the the screen refresh rate..)  Just tried gradually step by step. Worked then!

SOURCE: No input detected on projector

it sounds like the A/V reciever does not upconvert the component signal to HDMI. Not many do. The Marantz recievers will (SR6001, SR8001, etc..). Also bear in mind that HDMI cables are finicky and may require amplification over a few meters long.

The SP7205 will only show 480P. I have connected a DVD to the 7205 via composite cables however the unit only shows 480p. How can I get 720p or 1080i?


Unfortunately the highest video signal you'll receive through composite is 480p. To achieve anything higher than the said signal, you'll need to utilize either the component or DVI input of the projector. Those inputs will detect any HD signals.

Also if you've not done so already, you'll need to check the settings of your DVD player to make sure that it's outputting 720p and/or 1080i/p signal. Hope this helps you out.

I have an eiki lc xg400 at my disposal. I have a toshibi vcr/dvd player. How do I hookup the vcr to the projector and is the hook up different for the dvd? Thank you De


this depends on the signal type coming from your sources

best is using component signal ( Y-Pr-Pb) , by using the right cables and right settings for video inputs in the projector menus.In basic this should be possible.

DVD connection


You can use any dvd player to connect to this unit as long as it has either a S-Video plug or uses RCA plugs. These cables only transmit the Picture and not the sound. You will need to connect the DVD player up to something that can produce the sound as the HP only has a mono speaker.

How do i connect cable tv to my dell 2200mp projector


You can connect it directly with a composite cable. There would be a RCA(yellow) video output on the back of your cable TV. This is then connected to Video input(yellow) f you projector.

If your cable TV has Component output (threr RCA cable Green, Red, Blue), then these thre RCA could be connected to the similar one available on your Projector.

You could connect your sound als o thru the RCA out of Cable TV and input of Projector. But if you have a good AV Receiver or a sound system then it best suited for it, since the projector speaker is mono and only 2Watt output.
Let me know if there are any specific inputs required
The Dell 2200 mp projector has the following compatibility
:HDTV: 1080i, 720p
EDTV/480p: Yes SDTV/480i: Yes Component Video: Yes Video: Yes Digital Input: No Computers: Yes

Suround sound


Hi mich11

Right firstly you will have to check how many inputs you have on your Projector and then also how many inputs you've got and then work from there.

Typically it would be like this :

1.) S-Video cable running from your DVD player to your Projector. S-video - S-video points - both males.

2.) RG59 ( video cable ) running from your sky/satelite decoder to your Projector - once again 2 RCA points - both male.

I'll quickly browse through some of our installation pics and post you a couple.

Connecting tv/cable box


Hi,

This is a fairly common problem with this model. In most instances, it is just "slow" in sensing the presence of a video 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.

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.

Verify that you have done the connections correctly. Yellow RCA connector is the video while the red & white are the audio. Of course the Video input should be connected to the Video output, same goes for the audio. Please refer to pages 22 & 23 of the user's manual for more detailed instructions as well as illustrations.

A couple of things to consider: it is not HDTV capable and pls don't loose the remote.

If the unit will not select a source after some time (minutes), perhaps your best bet would be to seek replacement.

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.

CONNECT CABLE TO MY PROJECTOR


Hi,

Depending on the specific model of your Mitsubishi DLP, you can have either S video, RCA, VGA or a few other choices of INput connection.

Depending on your cable provider and hookup, you can either have a plain cable with F connector or a cable box normally with RCA connectors and a remote control.

If you have a simple cable connection that attaches direct to a TV (no remote, no box), you would need a TV Tuner to be able to receive the different channels whose output would be a composite video signal into the yellow RCA jack. You would need an RCA to RCA cable to in turn connect it to your Yellow RCA Video INput of the projector. In the absence of a tuner, an old VCR with such a feature would also serve the purpose. In some instances either units may also have an S video connection.

If you have a cable box with with remote, then there is no need for a tuner or VCR since its output would already match the projector's input.

Either way you would need a separate audio amplifier/speaker  for the sound.

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

Good luck and kind regards.
