Question about Optoma Pico PK-101 DLP Projector

2 Answers

Is there a cable adapter I can use to project to a Optoma PK101 projector from a basic laptop with svga, s-video, mini usb or usb connection? I just bought one of these projectors and need to know if I should send it back. My computer is a Toshiba Satellite A105-S4284.

    Specifically, after I bought the projector and couldn't figure out how to connect it to my laptop, I read this (pasted from the Optoma site, skip to the "Note"):







    http://www.optomausa.com/images/header_c..." class="h_mi" />

















    iPod, iPhone & iTouch with included bundled connection kit
    Camcorders, DV-Cams and Digital Cameras enabled with standard composite AV Out with included composite cable
    DVD Players and other video players enable with standard composite AV Out with included composite cable
    Note: This configuration does not connect to notebook computers, PCs, PDAs, cell phones or other devices unless the device has composite output. Please make sure to consult your device's owner's manual.
    How do I know if I have a composite output, and is there is some type of adapter to make my laptop and this projector compatible because the connectors don't match up.

Hi from what i can make out from your question, are you asking is there an addapter that you can use from your laptop to transfer the picture via wireless to the optoma projector? am i right? if so, no these are hard wire only either s-video,mini usb, or av only as far as i know there is not one to do this, if this is going to connect to a TV there is another solution that you might be able to use, a media extender like the like the linksys dma2100, this works wirelessly through the TV, whether it would be able to do the same from the laptop to the optoma i can not really say, but it might be worth you looking into something like that, i run a linksys on my TV, it runs through the house wireless network and i can watch films from my PC on my TV ..hope this helps, as the question is sort of nonsensical as to what you require.......

I have a Hitachi CP-L500 LCD projector. It is connected to my laptop from the svga projector port to the svga port on the the laptop. It is making no signal connection. I have made sure the input button...


I am not familiar with your Hitachi LCD projector . However , I do have a little knowledge regarding video signals and inputs / outputs as well as connections . If your connecting cable is one piece (has no adapters added to either end of it ) I would believe your problem is simply a settings misconfiguration in your projector / computer , or both . First , access your startup BIOS / CMOS settings during the initial booting sequence in your computer by pressing F1 or whichever keys you press when you turn the computer on to access it . Then , in the advanced list , check your primary video input selection to be sure it is default. Then, once the computer is completely booted and you can click on your start selection , go to your video settings and check how to switch between internal and external display options . I say this because it is important that you are able to reroute your video signal to your SVGA Out from the laptop (for sure) and it is in fact in that video output mode. Once you're sure you have a signal going out of laptop through that port , go to your projector video input selections menu and select each and every input option available until the signal comes through . This will only work if you're absolutely 100% sure that your video signal is in fact leaving the laptop via the SVGA port connection .

HOW DO I CONNECT A AN EZPRO 610 PROJECTOR TO A LAPTOP COMPUTER.


1. You will need a VGA or S-video cable and a 1/4 inch stereo plug that will go from the earphone jack to the EZpro then out to a amplified system for the sound.

I had the same problem with my Optoma ES566 and solved it by doing the following: 1. Connect the receiver to the projector using the vga cable. 2. Plug in the projector and the receiver. 3. Turn the projector and the receiver on. 4. With the computer booted, plug the USB dongle into an available port. The light on the dongle will flash green and then turn amber when the device is recognized. The projected image should change from the Imation logo to your desktop.

This sequence has always worked for me.

Can't run a DVD from my Apple Mac through my Acer Projector -


Depending on which Mac you have, you need an adapter. The latest Macbooks use a Mini DVI to video converter - you can get one from the Apple Store.

Hi, Optoma USA recommend that you set the PC resolution to SVGA (800 x 600) or XGA (1024 x 768). Your HP Pavilion ze 4900 default resolution is S = SXGA (1400 × 1050) or X = XGA (1024 × 768). I would assume that your cable(s) are properly mated/attached from the laptop to the projector. If on pressing TV Now! One-Touch button with a TV icon at the top of your keyboard to switch the display to the TV-Out mode, there is no picture projected, you can try to manually lower the screen resolution of your PC. Try lowering it to the 800 X 600 setting in your Display Properties. Also, you may want to check if the Dual Display Mode is enabled/activated. You can try different resolution setting as long as the projector can handle it. Hopes this works and give you an idea. Should you need more assistance, pls post/comment. Good luck and kind regards.
