Question about Optoma HD70 DLP Projector

1 Answer

I am unable to get my toshiba laptop to "marry up" with my optoma ex530. The screen keeps displaying "no source found." I have rebooted several times,etc. Checked cables, all the routines, etc. It worked last week for a presentation, but did not last evening. I tried shutting down the projector and restarting, etc. I tried the F7 and F9 (function) with no results. Send help !

Strange, and nothing has changed to your knowledge on your computer? You are just using a standard VGA connection? The "monitor out" from your laptop, or what output are you using? Have you tried turning down the resolution on your laptop? It may be too high for the projector... but if you haven't changed it, it shouldn't be. Also you are certain you are selecting the correct input source on the projector?

Let me know and I can help

    Ok well please update me when you are near it. Also, you are certain you are on the right input you said correct? On the projector I mean. You may want to test the projector with another computer.. it could be that input on the projector having issues.

    Thanks

    Sounds good, please keep me updated. Sorry about all these comments back, but if I am not the most recent comment in the system here it may close out the question after 2-3 hours, but if I am the most recent comment it gives you unlimited time to respond... strange I know..

    But anyway, please comment next time you have an update ;)

    Thanks

Can't get projector to display from HP laptop. Press Fn-f4 as usual but projector can't find source


i have sold over 100 of these (useless)... projectors so i can tell you that you need to;
go to display properties in the laptop and make sure you can see 2 screens otherwise you wil get nothing out of the video output/vga depending which model you have. go to the projector menu and make sure auto is set for the source/input. if your laptop has VGA out set optoma to VGA. start the projector up again and then the laptop in that sequence. if you need any more help email me.

Toshiba laptop won't work with new optoma projector


-toggle the laptop display using the FN keys and F5 I believe. -lower laptop resolution to 800 x 600 -look in laptop display properties for lcd or external display settings, see if it (external crt) has to be enabled on the laptop first.
