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.

SOURCE: Hi, is Dell 3100MP Projector
In most cases this problem is cured by enabling the external VGA (or monitor) ouput on the laptop. The quickest way is to reboot the laptop with the projector turned on and connected. Usually the laptop will detect an external display is attached and enable the port.
It is also possible to manually enable the external display port. It varies from laptop to laptop but look for the "Fn" key at the bottom left of the keyboard, usually coloured green or blue. You should see a row of icons on the top row of "F" keys which is in the same colour. Look for the one which is either a monitor, or possibly says LCD or CRT.
Hold down the Fn key and press the key you located in the last step. There is usually a delay of a few seconds and then you'll find something may happen. Usually the external output will be turned on alongside the local (laptop) display. Repeatedly following the last step cycles through all available configuration options, including both on, local on, local off, external on, and external off.
This should fix it. Make sure that the correct input is selected on the projector whilst doing this. It will be labelled on the projector and it should display the same input message on screen.
