    Hi,
    We have Dell 3200 MP projector in our Office, but No Manual. Remote also not working, even with 2 batteries. Projector switches ON, but "Searching for Signal' does not go. In "MENU", Top 3 lines cannot be accessed - Only AUDIO downwards working.
    I have connected both USB ports to my Laptop.
    How do I PLAY or SEND PPT or Video / Photos to Projector, so that it can be seen on Big Screen.
    Thanks & Regards
    Shrikant

Make sure you have all drivers and software necessary for the projector installed on your laptop. You can find them on viewsonic's website. Also go to Control Panel>Display>Connect to a Projector and insure all settings are correct. Let me know if you run into problems.

you might need to turn off your computer .
then connect the data projector
and turn on data projector
then turn on computer
hopefully it detects the data projector is connected and switches windows to duplicate projection
On my P.C. F4 key in windows Switches the display manually to duplicate, alternate screen or pc screen only or projector screen only.
As I am not familiar with Apple this support article below might explain the switching of display outputs available on Apple Mac.

Dvd player to projector


Yes please.
You can connect it either thru the RCA Composite output(yellow) of your DVD or thru the S-Video or even thru the component out(YPbPR) connections. In the component out you would require three RCA cables and would give you the best possible picture.
Find a link below , which gives a review of the Viewsonic PJ 501.

It is possible that the lenses are dirty.(Someone might have touched the lenses with wet hand)
Also check if the illuminating bulb is working fine. Like how old is it and does it need a replacement.
This should just work fine
