Projector will not detect input and shuts off changed bulb and temp light still flashes red

First thing to do is tackle this Temp warning light. Check if the projector has an "Auto Off" feature. This is where the projector shuts itself down after a set period of time when there's no signal. If it has, and it's set to on, then switch it off.

Next, clean any filter(s) and vents. Use the nozzle attachment to the vacuum. You're making sure that the projector can breath properly.

Now, input sources. If all fails, go back to basics. The yellow composite lead is about the simplest video connection to make and it's pretty fool proof. There are plenty of devices that give a composite video signal e.g. DVD player, camcorder, Freeview box. Use one of these devices and connect up the Video Out from the source to the Videio In on the projector. Fire up the projector and select the composite video input. The picture won't be as clear as a PC signal, but you should get something.

Once you know that the projector is working with a video input, and it will stay on, then you can concentrate on the PC connection.

Every laptop has a facility to toggle the display from the screen to an external display. The exact method varies from brand to brand. But they're all a variation on the same theme. It's the Function button (Fn) and one of the F keys. On my HP its Fn + F4. I've had laptops in the past where it has been F5 and others that were F8. All of them though had a little symbol representing a screen on the correct key.

The way it works is that the laptop screen is on. The first press of the two buttons will put both screens on. The next press is just the output to the projector. The final press brings it round to the laptop only again.

Once you have just the projector running, then you should change the display resolution to suit the projector if the laptop hasn't already done it for you. You can tell when it's wrong because the text won't be crisp. Right click on the PC desktop and then select "graphics properties" or similar from the menu. Change the resolution from the drop down box. Click OK to confirm. The correct resolution for a projector is the native rate. This is the number of pixels on the display, not the maximum resolution.

When i start up my projector it shows the start up image then goes blank the fan is still on then shuts down a few seconds after that, even though its not hooked up to a source.

Try hooking it up to a source that it supports. some will turn off if thee is no detected input. its a feature to save energy and light bulb time.

I have hooked up my computer to the projector. I get the blue screen and nothing else. How can I get the image to project? Thank You!

make sure you're on the correct source on the projector. now i'm not sure if you're using a laptop, if you are, then you're gonna have to press FN and F5 (depending what type of laptop you have, sometimes it's F8) buttons on your laptop. this activates the computer port of your laptop.

How do you hook up cable tv to my epson powerlite 830p lcd video projector

To hook up cable tv, you will need to have the cable running into a vcr 1st, then run either your s-video cable or audio video cables into the projector. Press the Source Search button on the remote control or the projector repeatedly until you see the image you want to project on the screen. The projector has two Source buttons.
Use the Computer/Component button to switch between equipment
connected to the Computer/Component ports.
Use the Video/S-Video button to switch between equipment
connected to the Video and S-Video ports.
? The remote control has four Source buttons. Use them to switch
between devices connected to the ports identified on each button.
(The PowerLite 830p does not support EasyMP.TM)
You can preview all sources on one screen to help you select the
desired source. (Allow a few seconds for the projector to sync up
after pressing the button.)

ViewSonic PJ402D Projector does says searching for source, what does this mean? Laptop does not even notice that projector is connected to it as well.

you need to hold function down and press something like F1 F2 F3 F4 maybe twice to clone the screen display and make sure your projector is on vga and there is a secure connection between your laptop and your projector.

a) try Fn+F8 (or whatever the Function key that has LCD/CRT on it
b) for xp right click on the desktop>Properties>Output to or go into settings
