I connect new LG Blu -Ray On my Sony Cineza Projector.but only blue colour on the screen ,what is the problem here?


You might have to change the input or start playing blu-ray disc and then change input via the remote to your projector. Make sure it's HDMI out on blu-ray if choice is given and HDMI in on projector.

Depending on the inputs on your projector and the outputs on the Macbook, you'll need to pickup one of a few adapters.

I'm trying to connect a Sony Projector to a Dell Laptop. I can't get a picture on the screen


There are a bunch of steps I could walk you through to detect the projector and then set the correct resolution and color depth. But it will be easier to have you just attach the projector and then restart the laptop so that the system will attempt to re-detect the second display automatically.

Then just right click the desktop and select properties. Go under display properties, settings, and enable the second screen (2) as either a cloned or extended display.

Projector wont switch on.


if there are no leds lit on the top, then the power supply is bad (check the fuse on it first). if there are leds lit, which ones, what color, and are they flashing, and how many times? this will tell you the problem.

Hi there

Does this only happen once a signal is inserted ?

Does it happen on both PC & Video signals ?

Have you tried using a different cable yet ?

Sony vpl cx5 no voltage to lamp


I downloaded the schematics and drawings for $US9.00 and found what I thought may have been a thermistor turned out to be a fuse. Obtained one from Sony spares and it is now OK. If it is possible would you guys know the value of the fuse [amp/milliamps??] If you are familar it is fuse 2P connected to C board, it looks like a small lump of plastic or diode block. The cost of the fuse is outragous from Sony. I hope I do not have to replace it again. However, if I do I would love the valua and I could see if I could get one from Radio shack or someplace similar. If I was not retired I would buy one and put it on a step tranny and watch the ampmeter for the blow current. But, thats life when you decide to retire. I believe the voltage value is 3volts??

Would appreciate any feed-back on the value of the fuse.

And I hope this may help others

Thanks and Good-day

Projector turns off after 30 seconds.


I had the same problem I replaced the motor/lense cover unit at the cost of $AU140.00 and that fixed it.
