    What kind of terminals does it have in the back? Does it have a blue one with 15 little holes?
    If so, you need to buy a cable from RAdio Shack or some such store that connects your laptop to the projector. Normally those cables come with the projector.

If the unit has a VGA ( PC ) input you can just get a Male / Male RGB / VGA Cable.

If it doesn't have a PC input you can get a VGA / RGB to Component Cable wich is widely availabe from most PC Shops.

Hooking up projector to laptop with only HDMI port


The PG-F320W has a DVI-I port between the VGA/Component input and the VGA output. You will need an HDMI to DVI cable or a HDMI to DVI adapter and either an HDMI or a DVI cable. If you use the audio input of the projector, you will also need the audio cable between the computer and the projector. (Make sure to disable the HDMI as the audio playback device. In Windows, go to the Hardware and Sound Control Panel. Then go down to Sound and Manage Audio Devices. Click on the Playback tab and check your output device. Click on Start for Windows 7 and earlier, Windows Key + X for Windows 8. Then select Control Panel.)

Monoprice.com has good prices for most cables. The HDMI to DVI cables are here: http://www.monoprice.com/Category?c_id=102&cp_id=10231 .

The manual for the PG-F320W is available here: http://www.sharp-world.com/products/data_projector/pgf320w/pdf/PGF320W_ex1_en.pdf . See page 21 for the DVI cable connection information. See page 61 for video resolutions that the projector can handle.

I hope this helps.

My Windows XP is connected to my Epson Powerlite S3, but the screen is blue with the words Source: Computer (Auto) No Signal on it. When I click "Help" on the projector, it takes me to a screen...


'No signal' and 'unsupported signal' messages mean 1 of 2 things, either the VGA output is off(laptop) or the display resolution is set too high(laptop and desktop). Assuming the VGA cable you are using is good, try this:


Desktop: hook the computer back up too your computer monitor & set the computer to the basic VGA resolution. For windows XP, right click a blank area on the desktop, click 'properties' on the dropdown menu, click settings. Write down the numbers in the 'screen resolution' and 'color quality' boxes!

Drag the 'screen resolution' all the way down to then 'less' side. Then change the 'color quality' to the lowest setting. Click apply, then answer yes (the display will look UGLY - don't worry!!) Now connect your computer back to your projector. If it works, then the resolution you use on your desktop monitor is not supported on your projector. Experiment with different resolutions to see which one looks best on your projector. You will need to change the settings each time you switch monitor to projector.


Laptop: by default the VGA connector on your laptop is off. To turn it on, look for a blue symbol on one of your function (F1, F2, F3...) keys. It looks like an old TV with a line on both sides 'O' (F4 on HP) Press & hold the blue button (on the lower left of the keyboard, usually to the left of control ) and tap the bleu button you just found. Let go & give you're a computer a few seconds to change over. If the laptop screen goes blank, you found the correct button! The display image should now be visible. Repeat this 1 to 2 times to change it back to laptop display.

If you did not see the display on the projector, 2 other issues are possible. First, verify that the VGA output on the laptop is working - connect the laptop to a regular computer monitor & change the display resolution to the lowest settings (see desktop above), then try it again on the projector. If you cannot get an image on a computer monitor, your laptop settings may need to be adjusted in the same dialogue box as the settings. Monitor #1 is the laptop display, Monitor #2 is the external output.
Happy viewing :)

Source of laptop


sometimes it helps to hook up laptop and then power everything up at once. Also check and make sure that you have the source looking for the laptop or have it on auto search for it may also need to the check the menu for the projector to see if the may have a manuel connect for the laptop to be able to view

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.
