Question about Computers & Internet

I cannot get my computer and Infocus LP10 to communicate. This is a new problem. In the past, I hooked everything up and when I powered up the camera and then powered up my laptop, all was well with my desktop being projected on screen. Today, I just have the camera projecting the Infocus "the Big Picture" screen and no info from my laptop or ppt show. Please help, I have a lecture waiting!

You are using vga output?
On the infocus you can select an input, most projectors automatically search inputs. Then on your laptop use Fn+F8 on most laptops. Don't know which laptop you have. Most time you have three settings.
- Output shown on laptop screen
- Ouput shown on projector
- Output shown on both

Using the keycombination you can switch between these options.

Hope this is in time,

Good luck

If you are trying to hook the laptop to the proyector, did you try right clicking on the desktop to view the properties of the screen?
you have to right click at the desktop, then go to properties, then go to the tab of configuration then click on the second screen that will apear, and when it greys out, you there is an option you have to click below that says "extend windows desktop to this monitor", of course, the proyector has to be already conected, when you already clicked that, touch the sync button of the proyuector and it should be working.. otherwise, at the windows of configuraton you have to click on advanced (wich is a button almost at the bottom of the window) and then a window will emerge and (on my version) there is a tab that its called like my video card of the laptop (in your laptop it should be called like your video card), and there must be an option (after you plugged the proyector) of sending the signal like something specific, like a signal for tv, or proyector,or monitor.. .i think it varies depending on the model of the video card.
well.. i think thats all about it.. wish you good luck in your lecture..
also.. check the cables!.. if they are old they could be broken at the begening of the conection... (did i explain that right?)

Infocus lp770, trying to hook up to apple computer using the usb port? will this connection work to run the 770?


Hi!
You need to hook it up using VGA or HDMI for it to transmit information from your Apple computer to projector. You can check the Ports available at the back of your projector and you can Purchase cable needed from either Apple or Infocus or any computer store.
Hope this helps.

We are trying to load data files from old computer system to new. Had Passport hooked up to old computer for two weeks.How do we get the files off Passport and onto the new system?


Hi,
Use the passport to transfer the files, but DO NOT USE THE Passport SYNCHRONIZING software. The Passport will keep a snapshot of the old computer and when hooked up to the new one it will compare it to the snapshot it has stored and, not recognizing it, will ask you to reinitialize the profile, erasing everything in the process. ( At least that is what happened to me everytime I changed something in my computer: new partition or some other thing)

The pedestrian procedure
  1. Hook up the Passport to the old computer.
  2. Copy the data from the old computer and paste it onto the Passport, preferably in a folder. (Drag and drop, Copy Paste)
  3. Safely remove the Passport and hook it up to the new computer.
  4. Open the Windows explorer, travel to the Passport, locate the data folder you created before.
  5. Point to it with the mouse cursor, right-click and select Copy.
  6. Go to the new computer hard drive and paste the data folder on c: or some other folder.
Hope it helps.

After the power on four red blinkings at the power led


one or more of the fans have failed and need replacing. excessive heat and dust shortens their life. you'll need to send it in or get the parts from an infocus authorized service center. try av solutions in ny. they're pretty good.

Projector and fan and light goes on and then the light goes out. I am being told the ballast is outby the people I bought the new bulb from


does it chirp and flash before it goes out? if so, the problem is the zero volt ground reference level. you need a jumper wire from the power supply to the main board. if you are handy with a soldering iron, here: http://www.infocus.com/service/asc/communications/tech_notes/2006/09/tn495g.pdf

Infocus screenplay 4805 not communicating with PS3 console.


Try pressing the "auto image" button on the projector itself. This sometimes solves these types of problems.

I have an Infocus LP10 that I use every day. I hook it up and have never had a problem until today. The camera is not showing my PPT presentation. I only get the Infocus "the Big Picture" ad...


First of all, make sure that the correct input is selected. Second, it is possible that the input card has a problem. Try reseating this board. If that fails, please update this and I'll try to provide other options.

Infocus lp530


I called InFocus and was walked through several steps to determine if it was a bad cable or an internal problem. My InFocus unit would power up and stay powered up with no problem until I connected it to the computer using the analog computer cable (blue connectors). They had me try it with a different computer and then with the S-Video cable. Each time the InFocus unit powered down within seconds of connecting to the computer. The problem is internal. The unit had to be sent to InFocus for repair ($180). If the unit works with the S-Video cable then your problem is a bad cable.

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.
