The output video needs to be enabled on the laptop. Normally this connector is not active. There should be a function key that has the outline of a CRT screen on it. Using the ctrl key and that key at the same time will toggel the output video connector on/off. If that does not resolve the problem, please update this with your exact setup including cables.
Thanks,
Dan

MY VIEWSONIC PJ402D DLP PROJECTOR WILL ONLY DISPLAY IN BLACK AND WHITE.


Hello,
If you are connecting the projector to the signal source via S-VIDEO cable this not uncommon. It usually happens when one of the connectors or the cable is broken. Try a new or different cable. If problem persists examine the connectors on both end of the cable and the one in the projector as well as the one in the signal source(pc, laptop etc) to see if there is a hardware fault. If all is good then the problem is internal with the S-VIDEO connector. In that case your other option is to use VGA.
Have a good day, hope this helps.

No picture


Hi, Possibly either of 2 reasons: 1. Your player is not sending any signal to the Optima meaning it is the one in question and not the projector; or 2. Your Optima lost its input signal, go through the signal source selection menu, try manual selection & set it to where your source/player is connected. Hope this works out for you, if not pls post again . Good luck and kind regards.

Will not regonize computer source


The projector looks for Horizontal sync & Vertical sync signals from the VGA source. If it finds these signals only then the source is connected. Even if the sync signals are found, the RGB switching should be working. Either there is a problem in sync circuitry or RGB switching. You need to be well conversant with the circuitry.

I my projector is new one used for 4 hrs, when i try to turn it on it just has a blinking green light. Please help Solve It! .


The blinking green light means the unit is either Powering On (Warming Up) or Powering Off (Cooling Down).

Powering On the Projector
1. Remove the lens cap.
2. Securely connect the power cord and signal cable. When connected, the ON/STANDBY LED will turn Amber.
3. Turn on the lamp by pressing " " button either on the top of the projector or on the remote. The ON/STANDBY LED will now turn Green. The startup screen will display in approximately 10 seconds. The first time you use the projector, you can select your preferred language from quick menu after the startup screen displays.
4. Turn on and connect the source that you want to display on the screen (computer, notebook, video player, etc). The projector will detect the source automatically. If not, push menu button and go to "SETUP". Make sure that the "Source Lock" has been set to "Off". If you connect multiple sources at the same time, press the "SOURCE" button on the control panel or direct source keys on the remote control to switch between inputs.

If you are still unable to get the unit to turn on, try unplugging it for 10 minutes and plugging it back in. If it still ceases to work, contact Optoma here: http://www.optomausa.com/rma_policy.asp

I am trying to connect it to a dell laptop with a vga connection and the projector says no signal.


make sure the computer is set to extended desktop or clone desktop. make sure the video output (resolution, refresh rate, etc) is in the range of the projector. If the Dell was powered up when you plugged in th eprojector, reboot. make sure the active input source is the one that you connected to the computer.

No signal from laptop even though it is connected I have attached an apple laptop to projector and no image from the computer is being shown I have pressed source and it says no signal. The computer is on...


this is going to be a bummer, but have tried to use another cable? to check if there is an issue with the cable try using another device that uses the same. if it works with it it may depend on the configuration of on your operating system which may vary

No Signal when plugging into laptop


On your laptop you have the ability to toggle the external display on/off/both. On several laptops I see, it is a combo of teh Function Key+F4 (or F5). The key for your laptop (you did not provide type) should be marked with an image of a projection screed or a monitor in a color matching function key; often blue.

With everything connected, press these keys to toggle from Laptop Display Only to Projector Only to Both.

If the problem is not your laptop, then verify the input source that the projector is looking for via it's menus or a button on the remote. Toggle the source if required.
