    My PE8700 worked fine for over 2 years also. Suddenly over the weekend, it cannot find the DVI input. The other inputs work just fine.



    One reply said that the "Comms board" may need to be replaced. What is the comms board, where do you get one and how do you replace it?

Hi 1ivans

I would suggest that you should firstly try another DVI cable.

If this doesn't work , then the comms board will most probably need replacement.

The SP7205 will only show 480P. I have connected a DVD to the 7205 via composite cables however the unit only shows 480p. How can I get 720p or 1080i?


Unfortunately the highest video signal you'll receive through composite is 480p. To achieve anything higher than the said signal, you'll need to utilize either the component or DVI input of the projector. Those inputs will detect any HD signals.

Also if you've not done so already, you'll need to check the settings of your DVD player to make sure that it's outputting 720p and/or 1080i/p signal. Hope this helps you out.

Make sure you have the right input source selected. It may be looking for a signal from some input other than the one you're connected to. Beyond that, if it truly isn't seeing the input then you'll need to have the projector serviced.

I actually fixed it myself--I found another site that said for Dell systems, you need to hold down the Fn button (bottom left) and push F8 and then it recognizes the projector. Solved the problem immediately!

Display resolution through dvi input HELP!


For the record I have a playstation 3 running to tx100 through hdmi to dvi adapter. It does all resolution no probs, including 720p,1080i and 1080p (which tx100 does do smoothly through dvi). My denon upscaling dvd player works fine too. In fact the tx100 looks totally awsome with PS3 games and Blu-ray.

Maybe your dvi lead is the wrong type (i think there are 2 types) or perhaps you could test with a differrent piece of DVI kit in case it's your pioneer causing probs? Hope this helps.

Hi there

First try to bypass the box and put signal directly into the Projector from the source - i.e. DVD Player

If the signal still doesn't pick up , try using a different cable.

If the problem is solved , then your Converter Box is faulty.

If the problem still occurs then you might have a faulty Mainboard - as all the inputs on this Projector is situated directly on the Mainboard.

Hope this will help you !

No input detected on projector


it sounds like the A/V reciever does not upconvert the component signal to HDMI. Not many do. The Marantz recievers will (SR6001, SR8001, etc..). Also bear in mind that HDMI cables are finicky and may require amplification over a few meters long.

DVI will not recognise now ?


Presumably, you're going directly from DVI port on computer to DVI port on Z2?. Here is a Q&A list based on all the possible sceanrios for this hook-up...

Q1: Is it DVI-D or DVI-I (with unencrypted DIGITAL output from graphics card)?
A1: Choose 'Input 2', then 'RGB(PC Digital)' on Z2.

Q2: Is it DVI-D or DVI-I (with HDCP-encrypted DIGITAL output from graphics card)?
A2: Choose 'Input 2', then 'RGB(AV HDCP)' on Z2.

Q3: Is it DVI-I or DVI-A (with ANALOGUE output from graphics card)?
A3: Choose 'Input 2', then select 'RGB(Analog)' on Z2.

After making sure the correct 'Input 2' is chosen to match the signal coming from the card's DVI port, make sure your card is outputting a suitable screen resolution that the PLV-Z2 can display correctly, e.g... 1280x720 (native, and preferable!); 640x480; 800x600; 1024x768 (choose this if you don't have 1280x720); 1280x1024, etc. Also, if you have multiple refresh rates availble for the resolutions, choose 60Hz.

You should end up with an image.
