    When I play a movie on my laptop it plays on the screen, the moment I plug in the Projection screen and play the movie, it plays on the laptop screen but not on the projection screen.

    I have followed the instructions, I have also tried to reconfigure the resolution and screen settings to see if they had any effect! but yet the movie still will not play on the projector on the laptop screen.

If you right hand click on desk top and then go to settings press number 2 and click extend my desktop and apply. It should come up on the projector screen the colour of your desktop but not icons as you are not cloning it. If it does play the dvd which will come up on your lap top and drag and drop off of your lap top far right into projector screen then resize on screen. Hope that helps:) AJ

The projector probably has a user manual, right? Have you followed the steps in connecting pc with projector? You might have missed a setting or something and need to re-check it.

Why does my Mitsubishi hc5500 projector only display a blue screen but still play sound?


The unit may need cleaning. The lamp will shut off if the air flow is blocked by dust.

Hello. I am having trouble setting up my projector, i want to play movies from my dell inpirson laptop but everytime i plug in my projector to my laptop it just says no signal with a blue screen backdrop....


Usually, with a Dell, when your laptop is connected to the projector/monitor....you hold down the fn key and press the F8 key and it transfers the signal. Otherwise, look on all the F keys to see if one has a small icon resembling a screen or monitor and press that in combo with the fn key.

Can see frame but cannot see movie


Is it a downloaded movie? You possibly do not have the right codec to view it. Download VLC media player. It is free open-source software that can play practically any video format.

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
McVerick

Playing dvds through projector


I'm guessing your trying to play the DVD on a PC or laptop, in which case if you change the display settings so the video is only output through the projector and not on the PC/laptop screen the video will then play back properly.

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.
