Question about Polaroid Polaview 211E Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Polarview 211e I connected the LCD projector, through a converter to my g3 mac.  How do I get an image from the computer (power point or photoshop) to go to the projector?  Should there be an installation disk with the LCD projector?  I want to get the image on screen to go to the Polarview 211e projector, but it isn't happening.  Any suggestions? Thanks. friscojfronk@aol.com

Go to:

System Preferences (you can get there by clicking on the Apple Menu in the top left corner) -> Displays -> Detect displays

After you click "Detect Displays" your G3 should automatically send the display image to your projector.

Look for the F-key with a square/icon of a laptop. Press FN+This button until you see your screen display show that it will be using your LCD + the output on your computer. Remember you need to hook both the VGA or HDMI out to the projecter as well as the USB cable.

My Canon LV-5210 displays no image for my computer. It has worked fine in the past. And it did not work a couple days ago and then it worked OK yesterday when we accidentently pushed the Input buttom. But...


If your projector displays no image, this could be a variety of problems. First, check that the projector has power. On the top of the LCD or DLP projector should be some lights. With power, those lights will be on. If it has power, check to make sure that the projector lamp is firing. If so, go to the source. Make sure that it is connected with a VGA cable or USB cable to your computer, or with an RGB cable, S-Video cable or DVI connection to your VCR/DVD Player. From a laptop computer, the VGA cable should be connected to the VGA out connection, and into the VGA in connection on the projector. Are both ends tight?
If everything has checked out so far, the solution probably lies with the external monitor port. Check this by holding the Fn key on the keyboard, then press the F7 key. (On some computers, the key might be F5 or F3. Try these if F7 doesn't work) Each time you press the Fn / F7 combination, you will cycle your display through the following settings:
* Press Fn / F2 or F2 once: The laptop screen only
* Press Fn / F2 or F2 twice: The projector port only
* Press Fn / F7 or F2 three times: Both the laptop and projector port
* Wait a few seconds after each time you press the key combination to let the LCD or DLP projector refresh. Nine times out of ten this will result in seeing your projected image.
this should help you :)

Problem hooking my macbook to the Powerlite 62c/82c the projector


For these types of projectors if you're planning to hook it up using you MacBook ;

You will need a converter ( from VGA to DVI )
Using the VGA cable that came with the unit when purchased ;

Connect the VGA cable on the back of the Projector and on the other of the cable you will connect the converter ( VGA TO DVI ) since for MAC systems it has DVI ports for monitors not VGA...

You can purchase the converter at any Mac store or any computer shop near you..

You may have inadvertently switched your projector to a different input mode, or the mhz refresh rate, etc., Jon.

Power Point Presentation Using Sanyo Pro Xtra X Multiverse Projector


Don't forget to select the Fn key and F4 on HP laptops. It could also be the Fn key and F8 depending on the laptop brand. It is the apple key and the F7 key on a Mac notebook. On Laptops this will toggle the video to the aux port where the monitor cable connects to the projector. There are 3 modes. video on the laptop screen, video on the laptop and projector, or video to the projector only.

RGB not aligned so I get thin red vertical stripes displaced to right of icons


If you are handy with allen wrenches, quality screw drivers, and the like, you might 'try' opening up the can of worms and gently manipulating the red LCD panel (it will be obvious--a magenta color when off), by slightly loosening the holding screws, then moving--ever so slightly, the panel untill the ghost disappears. Do not do this though, untill you mark the present position on the top and bottom of the LCD panel. Take pictures, far and close-ups, as you go so you can reassemble the unit. The typically three LCDs can be located by finding the prism cube, located under the circuit board, and just before the output lens. Be patient, and have fun. I did this with an 'out of wack' throw away, and now it is just as enjoyable as my 'dimmer' HDTV projector. Even side by side, from 8 feet away, when both are making 72" images, the HDTV is barely clearer, Jon.

Vertical control of viewing frame needs adjustment.


Did you try going into MENU --> PICTURE --> SIGNAL MODE, and then pressing > to go through all the signal modes? On mine, most of the signal modes split the screen weirdly as you described, but one of them (in my case XGA3, but I'm not using a Mac) looks right.
