Question about Hitachi CP-X345 Multimedia Projector

Open Question

No input detected on projector

Hello,

I have a hitachi pjtx-100 ceiling mounted projector that worked great when connected the following way: DVD Player>Component video cables>reciever>component video cables>projector.

I recently remodeled my house, and opted to run an hdmi cable instead of component video cables. Then I discovered that my projector does not have an HDMI input! -But it does have a DVI input. I thought the problem would be solved by buying a HDMI-DVI adapter. -No luck. The current configuration is: DVD>Component video cable>reciever>hdmi cable>hdmito DVI adapter>projector.

Maybe related- I bought a new Sony Reciever (STR DG 510) to take advantage of the HDMI output. Whenever I select "DVD" the message "unlock" appears on the display. There is now reference whatsoever to this message in any manual, so I can't get rid of it. Is the unit "locked, thus inhibiting the signal?

I'm pretty technically adept, and have gone through all of the motions of changing the input signal on the projector.

Also, the dvd player is about 5-6 years old...might the signal not make the transition from component video cable to hdmi? Thanks for your help!

    My Acer Aspire 3630 Laptop cannot be detected by my Hitachi CP-X345 Multimedia Projector. It works without incident with a Dell Vostro 1500; just plug and play.

    We have multiples of this projector (Hitachi CP-X345) and using the same laptop, same cable, one finds the signal on both RGB inputs AND composite in, but the other finds NO signal at all on RGB and displays image in black and white ONLY on composite input.

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.

PJ-TX300 suddenly not detecting HDMI input


I think that its a port issue, if all the other ports are working but hdmi is not then one of the pin on the circuit board may have come loose. I have the same issue. Could try to solder it back on or use a glue gun. let me know if this helps?

I see no red and green colors on screen projected by pjtx 100, the rest of the colors are visible.


If you are using a component video cable (Red, Green, Blue) you may simply be missing the Red cable. It may not be fully plugged in.
You can verify that this is the case by: 1. Unplugging all video cables 2. Plug in the green cable, you should see a black and white image. 3. Plug in the blue cable, you should see some colours coming through. 4. Plug in the red cable, you should see all colours properly.
If not, unplug the blue and red cables and plug the blue cable into the red port. The colours will look incorrect, skin tones will be blue. If the colour comes through the problem is the cable. If the colour does not come through, the problem may be the projector.

There is blue shadows in the picture, my hitachi cp-rs55 just got a new lamp, but the problem is still there???? How do i solve this problem??


Hi

The problem could be caused by the connection or configuration of your video equipment. Check the following:

  • Make sure your component-to-VGA video cable is properly connected.


  • Select Component Video as the Computer Input setting in the Signal menu.


  • Make sure the connected video equipment is set up to output video to component video.
Hope this helps

What size are the mounting screws?


The brass mounting holes on the bottom of Hitachi data projectors require a 4mm bolt.

Typicall 4mm x 10 is the shortest bolt I will use if when installing a projector on a ceiling mount, and 4mm x 20 will be the longest. I also recommend picking up 3 washers and spacers of varying sizes if you want to insure the projector is mounted level without warping whatever it is you are attaching it to.

BMS makes great locking mounts that come with all the mounting hardware you'd need to attach a projector to it.

Projector signal goes bad after 25 minutes


It appears the projector was over heating. Why it affected the DVD signal and not the computer signal, I do not know. The other confusing thing was the projector was hanging off the ceiling and should have had plenty of circulation. When I climbed up to check for excessive dust, I found that the lens cap had been placed over the intake vent. I blew off the dust and removed the cap. After running the projector for an hour, it appears that the problem has been solved.
