Try changing the resolution of the pc, sometime the projectors can not lock on to all resolution rates of the pc's, 1024 X 768 is a common resolutions that should be ok. If that doesn't work try another; 800 x 600. Also make sure if you are using a 15 pin HD VGA connection cable that the projector input is in the Analog mode.

Hi there, I'm trying to play a VSH/DVD through my

This happens when the computer signal is being used as the input, and the signal disappears or is the wrong type.
It may have tried switching inputs if you were using the video input rather than the pc input.

Press the auto image button to get it to select the correct input.

If you are using the PC as the dvd player, then change the display settings ie computer screen refresh rate, and resolution to suit the projector

Whe the projector is switched on and power light goes to solid green only a blank screen appears (basically only th lamp light) nothing else.

Be sure your input from the source is good. If a PC you may have to toggle the F8 or F5 to change the dispay to the projector. You can set the projector for AUTO Search to check all inputs at start up. If your doing WiFi or DVD/VHS player, be sure your using the outputs from those devices and that they match the projector input.

Projector has image on screen but cannot get connectrion to laptop to project pwerpoint

Be sure you have the right input selected. You might try Auto Search. Then toggle the laptop using the F8 or proper function key to display the output to the projector or in both places. Sometimes the laptop must be hooked up to the projector before the laptop is turned on. Hope one of these works.

SHARP NOTEVISION XG-C50X LCD PROJECTOR: Does this work for laptop presentations as well as DVD projections

Hi there, Sharp makes light and compact projectors with low fan noise. Set the projector up in areas subject to minimal humidity and dust to avoid having to clean the lens too often. Remember that colors will get washed out if the screen is in direct sunlight. Learn a few troubleshooting techniques to get the most out of this work horse projector.

No Pictures, Sound or the Projector Fails to Start
  • If you have no pictures, sound or the projector fails to start, check that the power cord is plugged into the wall and that all the cables are connected to the rear panel. Make sure the remote control batteries are fresh. If you are using a notebook computer, make sure the screen output is correct. Check the Input Mode on the projector. Check the projector physically--is the lamp and cover in place? Check the key lock.

    Cannot get LP340 to work on Vista pc

    Try Lowering your screen resolution slightly and/or booting up the pc after the projector is plugged in and running.
    Also if the 340 has multiple inputs check you are on the correct RGB or VGA input.
    Good Luck!

    USB Driver for PLC SU70 Sanyo Multimedia Projector

    Ok kumar i did some research on your problem.

    Im not real savvy with projectors, but im going to try and lead you into the right direction. Now when you connect your projector to your computer, you need to go to your input settings on your projector and put them on "auto". In your product manual it says the computer should automatically detect the projector. Now if the projector isnt displaying a proper screen then you need to to go into the manual settings and adjust the settings.

    Now i want you to goto this website:

    This is the manual for your projector. Scroll down to the table of contents and click on the bold letters COMPUTER INPUT click that and read a little about the way your computer connects to the projector. I hope this helps, please let me know an update. thnx
