Question about ViewSonic PJ501 Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Unit will not power on

Just received my projector; loaded software, registered, connected VGA cable to unit, then to laptop; connected power cord to unit, then to laptop; power light flashing yellow, held for 2 seconds, flashed green for several seconds then back to yellow. The lamp never came on. Unit makes "whirring" sound as power light goes from flashing yellow to flashing green, but lamp never comes on. I desconnected and reconnected twice since last night, and the same thing happens. I have used a borrowed Infocus unit just recently, so I know it is not my laptop. Please let me know what else I can try before I return this unit.

I am trying to hook my notevision projector to my laptop so that i can show a powerpoint. I did not receive a cord with my projector. Which cords will i need? I received a usb to usb and VGA cord but i...


I tend to use the VGA cable. Once connected, switch the laptop on until you get to the desktop, then switch on the projector. Some will see the signal, if not, simoultaneously press your FN and relevant 'F' key to send the signal out to the VGA. You may need to do this 3 times, once to send to projector, one to send back to laptop screen and then once to send the signal to both projector and laptop screen. Sometimes this can take a short amount of time. You may want to change the projector settings to the VGA input so it doesn't constantly search for a source. If you still have problems, go into properties on your laptop and advanced. you m,ay need to unclick the box saying 'Extend to..........' (You should find what I mean from this, I am in front of a pc therefore the settings are slightly different.)

If nothing then works, it may be your video card.

Good luck

I can't get a picture when I hook my projector up to my laptop.


HELLO,

If your LCD or DLP projector displays no image, this could be a variety of problems. First, check that the projector has power. On the top of the LCD or DLP projector should be some lights. With power, those lights will be on. If it has power, check to make sure that the projector lamp is firing. If so, go to the source. Make sure that it is connected with a VGA cable or USB cable to your computer, or with an RGB cable, S-Video cable or DVI connection to your VCR/DVD Player. From a laptop computer, the VGA cable should be connected to the VGA out connection, and into the VGA in connection on the projector. Are both ends tight?

If everything has checked out so far, the solution probably lies with the external monitor port. Check this by holding the Fn key on the keyboard, then press the F7 key. (On some computers, the key might be F5 or F3. Try these if F7 doesn't work) Each time you press the Fn / F7 combination, you will cycle your display through the following settings:

* Press Fn / F7 once: The laptop screen only
* Press Fn / F7 twice: The projector port only
* Press Fn / F7 three times: Both the laptop and projector port
* Wait a few seconds after each time you press the key combination to let the LCD or DLP projector refresh. Nine times out of ten this will result in seeing your projected image.


Hope this helpout....

Can you connect a Mac ProBook laptop to a ProxTrax Multiverse?


Hello. There is no "device" needed to connect the units together...You'll need a cable that is"mini display port to vga". In order to connect the projector to the laptop, the cable has to have the special Apple connector which fits into a specific socket on the back of the laptop. The other end is just a standard vga connector which is plugged into the computer input on the projector. Hope I helped you!

Connecting Dell laptop to Infocus LP820


The USB cable doesn't transmit Video. You need to plug in the VGA cable. The "DVI" port on the LP820 is not a a DVI but a M1 Digital port and won't work with DVI unless you get a converter.
