3M MP7740i Projector no input is detected

The projector turns on and works, the picture is great but all i can get is the main menu. When an external source is plugged in it maintains saying "no input is detected." I have tried plugging in multiple different auxiliary sources through different means (A/V, RGB, S-Video) but nothing has worked. it seems like everything works perfect on the projector except it cant detect input... any ideas?

Hi mrus821

If the signal won't go through you will have to either have your Mainboard Repaired or Replaced.

This is unfortunatelly a common Mainbaord problem , and the above is the only way to get it fixed.

Continuously searching for input. have changed both vga boxes and cables.


I would go into the menu of the projector and turn off the auto source search function and set it to the VGA input. If you have tried your FN and 'F' keys simultaneously to send the signal through the VGA port and still have nothing, you may have a faulty video card.

Good luck, hope I was of help

Screen is turning a pink/purple colour


Hi,

You should firstly test the projector using some alternative input sources, and using different cables to establish that the pink/purple tinge is consistent across all inputs.

If it is, then your projector is in need of professional repair. You should be able to contact 3m here who can advise who their local repair agent is.

Best of Luck

When I plu-in the VGA cable my screen goes blank on my HP-1170. I then have to reboot to fix video on laptop. Done all the resolutions and I cant seem to get the external projector to show anything other...


reset the settings to factory default through the menu. swap out the cable. depending on your laptop, press function-f4 or function-f7. if still nothing, you may have a main board issue.

Optoma EP716 source detection


It sounds like your module that controls the menu and the "cycling through" may not be in sync or may needs to be replaced. I had times have had to make sure the Optoma EP716 had to be first plugged in and "on" before the PC can communicate with it. Once the Optoma is "ON", then turn your PC/Notebook on. If there is no connection via USB, "S" cable and/or your VGA (be sure your PC/Notebook is set to have the external VGA "active"). Let me know if this works or not. Then we can try to move forward with other options for troubleshooting. BTW...how long have you had this multimedia and how many hours of use does it have?...JGUAM

Reset Lamp Hours Timer


This works on a couple different Toshiba models -- might work on yours...

Make sure the main power switch is OFF. Hold the "ON", "MENU", and "INPUT" buttons at the same time and turn the main power switch on. Keep them held until the yellow power standby light comes on, then let go. It is done.
