1 Answer

When I try to show a movie using a Dell Latitude E5500 laptop and an epson projector, a blue screen appears with the message that display devices are disabled. How do I reconnect the computer signal to the projector? Yesterday it was working. Have tried 1) booting up with projector off, 2)with projector on first, 3)unplugged projector and put plug back in, 4)unplugged main cable from projector to computer and plugged back in.

hold the Fn Key while powering on, this will enable the PSA diagnostics, if you get any video and or the diags function then that should give you an indication of the problem.
If you only get LED lock light indications, then check here:

Hi. My Dell Latitude E6410 does not recognize a Epson Projector, model EMP-7800. How can I solve the problem?


Hi
you must tell the laptop to display out on the projector,
how to do that?! you must toggle the display path
Generally, there is button ( with Fn keys ) have dusplay screen sample on it, use it with Fn to toggle the display
Display have 3 modes:
  1. laptop screen
  2. outside LCD projector or monitor,
  3. or bith 1 + 2

you can press the keys 3 times ( at maximum ) to have the display on both laptop screen and projector

Good Luck

Try lowering the resolution of the laptop to 1024x768 from the display settings (start- > control panel -> screen / display)
Also if in the screen settings you see a grayed out display with a number 2 on it, right click and enable it, see if it helps, also lower its resolution to 1024x768, apply and then go to the advanced page, check the refresh rate make sure its 60.

Screen image is distorted small using Epson EMP 821 with Latitude D620


Check Epson"s support site to see if there is a driver for the projector. Some projectors require a driver for the visual clarity, and lots of times the driver disc doesn't come with the projector, go figure, and don't ask me why.

Cannot project movies in powerpoint


I have encountered this same problem once in the office when i was trying to do the same thing.

The solution:
*Assuming you have windows xp*

1) make sure the projector and the laptop are connected (FN+F8), do a right click anywhere in your desktop then go to settings by default Monitor 1 would be your Lattitude D620 and Monitor 2 should be your projector, to make sure of that click on the 'identify' it should show a 1 in your laptop and a 2 on the projector
2) now select monitor 2 and select 'use this device as my primary monitor' check mark, by doing this your videos should play in your monitor but they will be a blank/black screen on the laptop (basically we are reverting the order).

Sincerely

Media player movie picture won't display


Yes, I have the same problem with a Dell Inspiron 700m laptop. I have never been able to show videos using two seemingly compatible devices. This is not a projector issue however, as my projector displays video DVD fine from this PC, only videos inserted into PowerPoint will not play. Using another computer it works fine. Imagine that, Dell selling two highly practical devices that are not compatible.
