Iamge from the previous projection from RGB still appears when i switch to Video mode. why is it?

I was projecting from my laptop (powerpoint presentation) for about 3 hours, then when i switched off my laptop, took off the RGB cable and switch the projection to video mode, the (powerpoint) images from my laptop still appears on top of the video images. is there any problem with the lamp? or is it something else? i have tried a few things including switching the whole unit off for a good half an hour before switching it on again on the video mode but the powerpoint image is still there overlapping on top of the video. appreciate your kind assistance. thanks.

Hi There

Looks like your Projector's Mainboard has locked the memory and is stuck.

If you can access the Projector's Menu - Reset the machine and switch it off.

If the problem still occurs , you will have to take your Projector to a Service Centre to have to Mainboard repaired.

This is 100% NOT a lamp issue.

When I switch on the projector,VGA searching appears and I cannot remove it and consequently I am unable to project my DVD on the computer I have pressed re synch but it does not make any difference .

What input are you using and what is your input source? If you are using your computer as a source, you need to sync up output display resolution with projector resolution. Also check to make sure that you are outputting through VGA out on PC, particularly if it is laptop. You need to change display settings for dual or second monitor output.

I get a blue screen on my misubishi sl1 projector lamp and no signal appears on the screen


Make sure the Computer Input is set to VGA, Computer, or RGB (depending on which projector model you have).

There are also known known hot-key combinations used to switch the laptop to its external VGA mode. If you are using a laptop.

Check the cables as well if properly connected both on computer and projectors end.

Hope this helps

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!

NEC Lt240 prblem

Hi 80camaro

You could check in the Service Menu if your RGB is the same percentage and at the same run rate.

The run rate is normally 45-60 and the percentage on 50.

I would however recommend that you take it to a NEC agent to get it serviced.

If this doesn't fix it , then you will be looking at a new Mainboard.

Thanks for using Fixya and good luck.
