InFocus projector now displaying video

I'm using an InFocus RP10s and an HP laptop. I'm trying to embed a video clip from a DVD into a PowerPoint presentation. It will play on the screen of the laptop, but I'm getting only a black square on the projector. Have even tried using the "Plays for Certain" program with the Powerpoint, but get the same thing. Anyone know how to remedy this?

    Thanks for the suggestion -- it certainly has possibilities, and I hadn't tried anything with the drivers before. Unfortunately, per the instructions, it requires an RS232 adapter that I don't have. Once I find/purchase one, I'll give you an update. Thanks again for the tip!

Infocus lp425z projector pushes latop display to left quarter of output image


Usually this is a hardware acceleration setting problem on the 'advanced' properties setting in your 'screen resolution' properties on your computer. Re-set the hardware acceleration to the 2nd setting and this should fix your issue. We have this regularly when we project on a double projector system and the one projector keeps shifting everything left until we adjust the hardware acceleration settings on the computer. No more issue.

My dell d630 laptop wont recognize my infocus lp70+ remote control and I can't advance my powerpoint slides with the remote control


Here's what the User's Manual says:


Using the Remote Control

To advance PowerPoint slides with the projector's remote, you

must connect the USB cable on the projector's computer cable to

the computer. See page 8 for more information.

Point the remote control at the projection screen or at the front or

rear of the projector (not at the computer). The range for optimum

operation is about 30 feet. If you point the remote at the

projection screen, the distance to the screen and back to the projector

must be less than or equal to 30 feet. For best results, point

the remote directly at the projector.


If you are displaying presentations in Microsoft® PowerPoint®,

you can use the remote's Previous and Next buttons to navigate

through your presentation while in Slide Show mode.

During Powerpoint presentations, I am unable to play embedded video clips OR straight from a DVD that is minimized on desktop without a lag...on the screen it says 'searching for signal' when I click on...


this is caused by your computer changing resolutions in order to display the video full screen. to decrease this, set your screen size as close as posible to the size of the video

Powerpoint video problem


Does the videos play well in Windows Media Player? If not, it deciates that there are not proper codec installed on your computer.Try to download and install some new codec from official: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/forpros/format/codecdownload.aspx. Go for codec references at: http://www.codecguide.com/

If the video plays well, please try the following methods:
Method 1.
1. Put video files and the PowerPoint presentation in a same folder.
2. Re-insert these files to PowerPoint presentation.
Method 2.
Insert -> Hyperlink, choose the video file you want to insert, and then click ok. After do this, you can click the hyperlink to view the video when present the slide show.

Method 3.
 1. Display the slide you want to insert video.
 2. Click the View menu in the menu bar, and then choose Toolbars in its child menu, later Control Toolbox to let Control Toolbox displayed. Choose More Controls which seems like hammer.
 3. In the succeeding dialog box, choose Shockwave Flash Object. Your cursor will change into a cross-hair - draw a rectangle anywhere on screen
4. Right click the inserted Shockwave Flash control, and then click Properties.
5. Click the Movie property > type the full drive path in the value column (the blank cell next to Movie), including the file name (e.g. C:a.swf) or URL (e.g. http://www.a.com/b.swf)
6. To make the Flash play automatically when the slide is displayed, set the Playing property to True;
7. Finally close the Properties window and save your presentation.
Method 4.
Convert your PowerPoint presentation to Flash use some third party presentation tools, PowerPoint to Flash converter, for instance.

Are you using dualview (cloneview)? Try just the single view, projector only. If that doesn't work, reboot with the projector cord plugged in. A similar problem happenned to me before and that's what I did to resolve it.

PowerPoint and Projector (InFocus LP640) Incompatability


I am unsure of this from your post, but don't try to hook the projector up to the laptop while either one of them is on. Power both the laptop and the projector off, hook up the projector to the laptop, then power on the projector first then the laptop. If you are already doing this, I apologize for stating the obvious.

Multi-media projection without image


A great deal of the time DVD players are very restrictive on outputting to multiple sources due to copyright protection. In my experience, if you use your laptops function keys to toggle output (For example, on my laptop, I hit FUNCTION + F4 to cycle between LCD,LCD+VGA,VGA), you should be able to disable the laptop's LCD display, only outputting via the VGA cable. It's worked for me with my HP VP6111 and Windows XP in the past. Hope this helps!

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.
