I can't get the image on my Macbook to project using a Mini display port to VGA adaptor to connect to an Epson projector. It only projects the screen saver background image...any suggestions?

    Thanks. I did it and it worked. Except now when I click on System Preferences, then Displays, it's not the same menu. There are only two choices: Display and Color. The mirroring feature was on a third tab which was between Display and Color and which has now disappeared.

Go to system preferences and then displays, there will be a check box indicating to activate video mirroring. Click on the check box and what will show is what is showing on the laptop. Hope this helps.

What might be the problem since my macbook pro is connected to the projector through a HDMI to VGA adapter, yet the screen remains black?


Vga and hdmi are different formats. Unless you are using a coverter box that translates the data from one format to another it won't work. Vga is analog and hdmi is digital

My Epson EMP-S4 LCD projector does not display images from my Averatec C3500 laptop. It displays "No signal".. Do i have to press any keys before it would display? I suppose it would automatically project...


When you connect a data projector or external monitor to the external video port on the laptop, power up the data projector or external monitor first then the laptop. The video info will automatically divert to the data projector/external monitor automatically.
If you have already had powered up the laptop first, most laptops will allow you to toggle between the LCD screen and the external video port by pressing the Fn key plus one of the Function keys, this key will have a screen/laptop symbol.

You have not set the port on the back of the projector settings.

Go into the projector menu and go into the IMAGE area. Somewhere in here you should be able to select computer.

Why is my projection dark and muddy compared to the brightness on my computer screen?


John here, customer advocate at Dell headquarters. If you can nvigate to the On Screen Display Menu, you should see an "all images" section on the main menu. There you will find brightness, contrast, color temp, white intensity, and gamma controls. You should be able to make adjustments from that menu to sharpen and brighten the image.
